What April Deevian Mosquera means.

What April Deevian Mosquera Means

You are usually the best at everything ... you strive for perfection.
You are confident, authoritative, and aggressive.
You have the classic "Type A" personality.

You are influential and persuasive. You tend to have a lot of power over people.
Generally, you use your powers for good. You excel at solving other people's problems.
Occasionally, you do get a little selfish and persuade people to do things that are only in your interest.

You are wild, crazy, and a huge rebel. You're always up to something.
You have a ton of energy, and most people can't handle you. You're very intense.
You definitely are a handful, and you're likely to get in trouble. But your kind of trouble is a lot of fun.

You tend to be pretty tightly wound. It's easy to get you excited... which can be a good or bad thing.
You have a lot of enthusiasm, but it fades rather quickly. You don't stick with any one thing for very long.
You have the drive to accomplish a lot in a short amount of time. Your biggest problem is making sure you finish the projects you start.

You are relaxed, chill, and very likely to go with the flow.
You are light hearted and accepting. You don't get worked up easily.
Well adjusted and incredibly happy, many people wonder what your secret to life is.

You are balanced, orderly, and organized. You like your ducks in a row.
You are powerful and competent, especially in the workplace.
People can see you as stubborn and headstrong. You definitely have a dominant personality.

You are friendly, charming, and warm. You get along with almost everyone.
You work hard not to rock the boat. Your easy going attitude brings people together.
At times, you can be a little flaky and irresponsible. But for the important things, you pull it together.

You are very hyper. You never slow down, even when it's killing you.
You're the type of person who can be a workaholic during the day... and still have the energy to party all night.
Your energy is definitely a magnet for those around you. People are addicted to your vibe.

You are very intuitive and wise. You understand the world better than most people.
You also have a very active imagination. You often get carried away with your thoughts.
You are prone to a little paranoia and jealousy. You sometimes go overboard in interpreting signals.

You are confident, self assured, and capable. You are not easily intimidated.
You master any and all skills easily. You don't have to work hard for what you want.
You make your life out to be exactly how you want it. And you'll knock down anyone who gets in your way!

You are well rounded, with a complete perspective on life.
You are solid and dependable. You are loyal, and people can count on you.
At times, you can be a bit too serious. You tend to put too much pressure on yourself.

You are the total package - suave, sexy, smart, and strong.
You have the whole world under your spell, and you can influence almost everyone you know.
You don't always resist your urges to crush the weak. Just remember, they don't have as much going for them as you do.

People see you as a complete enigma, and only you truly understand who you are.
You spend most of your time introspecting and seeking truth.
You're a very interesting person... but not many people know you enough to realize it.

You are a very lucky person. Things just always seem to go your way.
And because you're so lucky, you don't really have a lot of worries. You just hope for the best in life.
You're sometimes a little guilty of being greedy. Spread your luck around a little to people who need it.

A University of Profit?

A University of Profit?

More than just an unwelcome centennial gift, the pro-commercialization Charter bill tha the Senate passed last Dec. 19 serves to undermine the history and fundamental character of the University of the Philippines as a democratic institution catering to all socio-economic classes. What is perceived to be a new Charter actually fortifies the colonial leanings of the old charter it tries to replace, plus the license to profiteer inserted.

Senate Bill No. 1964, which is basically the Pangilinan bill, conceives our university as a milking cow of multinational corporations by granting long-term leases, joint ventures and even sale of UP’s vast lands. And with the basic composition of the Board of Regents retained, the commercialization schemes can be expedited as the majority of the stakeholders of the university (the students, staff and faculty) remained underrepresented.

The underlying principle of SB 1964 further raises an alarm as far as the right to education is concerned: Shifting the orientation of the university from state funding to commercialization and financial independence poses a bleak future to the intellectual capital of this nation. During these times of worsening living conditions, our university stands to lose the brightest from the poor majority of the population. After the imposition of tuition hike last year, we now face outright sale of the right to education.

The gloomy prospect of UP should not be taken in isolation. With the pronouncements of the Arroyo regime of making state universities and colleges income-generating institutions, democratic access to education is severely injured, if not cancelled out altogether. As education is being peddled in this country to the privileged few, different sectors in the society continue to suffer under the harsh economic conditions engendered by the fascist Arroyo regime that has a neoliberal agenda.

After 100 years under the colonial and repressive charter, we persistently yearn for a new Charter that will strengthen the democratic character of UP as the national state university that will be the standard bearer of a pro-masses education.

Junk Pangilinan Bill!

Oppose the Commercialization of UP and Education!
Push for a Pro-people, Pro-student UP Charter!

unos ng umaga

Tanging mga panaginip lang din ang patutunguhan ng mga panaginip kong 'to.

Monday, September 24, 2007

yun na yun.

I let go, let the tears flow, feel it completely.
But eventually, i'll be able to say,

"All right, that was my moment with loneliness.
I'm not afraid of feeling lonely,
but now I'm going to put that loneliness aside
and know that there are other emotions in the world,
and I'm going to experience them as well."

- Tuesdays With Morrie, Mitch Albom


Love does not have to be accidental;
it can be planned.
You fall in love through your actions,
and you can stay in love through your actions.
Whether or not we fall in love is largely under our control.

- Sternberg (1991)

hindi kita mahagilap, hindi kita maabot.

nasaan ka na ba?

Sunday, September 02, 2007


Ngayon lang ako muling nagkaroon ng pagkakataon na magkapaginternet ng medyo matagal-tagal, at muling mabalikan ang mga isinulat kong blog entries. June pa noong huli akong magblog, at isang linya lang yun.
Hindi naman kasi talaga ako nagsusulat (o sabihin nating hindi ako magaling magsulat). Pero heto ako at nagtatype at muli na namang susubok.

Nakakatuwang balik-balikan ang mga sinulat ko dati. Sa pamamagitan kasi ng muling pagbasa sa mga iyon, makikita ko din ang inuunlad ko sa maraming aspeto. Sa pagsusulat, sa pagsusuri ng mga bagay-bagay at maging sa pag-unlad ko bilang tao.

Yung mga inirepost ko sa ibaba ay pawang mga bahagi ng mga entries ko noong February. Nangingiti ako nung muli ko silang binasa, napaisip ako, pakshet kung anu-ano mga nira-rant ko. Haha. Pero 'tong mga entries na'to ay malaki ang ambag sa kung paano ang pagtingin ko sa ilang mga bagay ngayon, at kung bakit ako masaya.

Mula sa blog entry ko noong February 2, 2007

Gusto ko ng kaayusan. Gusto ko ng disiplina. Gusto ko ng oras na mapag-isa. Gusto kong mag-isa.

Gusto ko ng Karelasyon. Para maging leggitimate ang panlalandi at panghaharot ko. Gusto ko ng KR na focused at firm, na ibabalance ang pagiging inconsistent ko, at pagagalitan ako kung nagiging dekadente ako.

Marami akong ayaw at gusto. Mas marami akong gusto, pero di ko alam kung pano ko makukuha.

Marami akong malubhang karamdaman, pano ba to gagaling?

Mula sa blog entry ko noong February 5, 2007

Ayoko ng mga taong masyadong nagdedepende sakin. Ayoko na muna sa mga mahihina. Sa mga tinitingnan akong 'mother figure' na laging objective sa pagsasagot sa mga tanong nila at kelangang maging malakas lagi para sa kanila.

Gusto ko sa pagkakataong 'to ako naman ang pagagalitan, pagsasabihang 'mag-objectify ka kasi' o 'i-weigh mo ang mga bagay-bagay' o wag ka na ngang magbrat'.

Pero at the same time, e sensitive din siya sa mga pangangailangan ko. At uunawain na kung minsan may mga dahilan din talaga ang pagbababrat ko- at nahihirapan lang akong iarticulate ang mga yun. At pagbibigyan din ang paglalambing at panghaharot ko paminsan-minsan.

At lalatagan ako lagi ng mga obhetibong pag-aanalisa sa mga bagay-bagay at kundisyon. Na ipapaunawa niya sakin ang mga gusto nyang maunawaan ko at ang mga alam niyang kelangan at nais kong maunawaan.

Oo, alam kong hindi ko naman kelangang maging mahina.
Kelangan ko lang ng (mga) taong mas matatag, assertive, objective, consistent at focused kesa sakin. Anumang antas meron ako ng mga yun ngayon.

(mula sa parehong entry)

Nauunawaan mo kaya ako?

Natatakot nga ako e, baka maudlot ang hindi ko pa man napapangahasang simulan.
Sana hindi ka kagaya nila. Sana kahit hindi ko ipilit na ipakita sayo, may maramdaman kang dahilan, para pagbigyan ako.

Patawad kung nakakaladkad kita sa kawalan.

Lalayo muna siguro ako saglit, kelangan ko din pulutin at tipunin ulit ang mga nagkandalaglag na bahagi ng aking sistema. Bubuuin ko muna saka ako haharap sayo.

Ingatan mo nalang ang ilang piraso ng itim at kayumangging sinulid na magkasabay nating pinaghugpong, pilit nilang dinidinig ang binibigkas ng iyong pulso.

Dahil ibubulong nila yun sa hangin. Hanggang makarating sa akin.

Mula sa blog entry ko noong February 13, 2007

* "Syempre naman hindi maiiwasan yung pagrereflect lagi sa mga nararamdaman natin, pero narealize ko, kung yun at yun nalang gagawin ko, hindi nako materialist nun."- isang kaibigan at kasama

[di ako sure kung yan yung exact words pero basta parang ganun. kelangan ko pa nga talaga aralin yung dialectic materialism, kung ano ba talaga yun. medyo nalabuan ako e.]

Ito ang pinakamatagal kong blog. Blog na naging baul ng mga salita at alaala. Hindi ko man 'to mabisita at masulatan ng mas madalas kagaya ng dati, ang mga aral at kaalamang nadiskubre ko kasama at sa pamamagitan nito ay mananatili.

Hindi pa ko patay.

Pero di ko alam kung hanggang kelan ko pa kakayaning huminga.
