Hot! Hot! Hot!
Today's events were a combination of frustrations and realizations. As I try to regain my energy for tomorrow's work (and that would mean A LOT), I begin to think of today's events as ticks in my counting list of my life's frustrations and realizations.
1. Ironically, I have come to realize that apathy is prevalent in our college. If media has some effect or impact in our society (I am not talking of immediate effects here but on effects on humanity), then it is important for future media practicioners to be aware of the social system where media operates. Otherwise, they would end up as machines--operating on a mechanism that they take 'as is'.
2. It is just frustrating to know that some of the things I have planned for my 21st year of existence aren't coming to reality. I have planned on sparing some time for gym, for the arts and many others. Apparently, I have not done anything to even put them close to being real. What's worse is that I feel like I am giving inadequate effort on those things that are on my hands right now.
3. I just realized once more that I don't like very hot and humid weather. Aaah!
4. GMA should be ousted. I am in for revolution. Governments were set up with the idealism that our classical thinkers had. With leaders, there are no compromises--they knew what they ran for and they should have done what they were supposed to do. NO CHANCES.
Forgivness is not wrong. But they have long used the principles of leadership, idealism and patriotism to convince us to put them in place. Why can't we use the same principles their ouster? What is wrong with her? It is a country's welfare that is AT STAKE here, and not some group. Even if it were a group, she should have shame in not meeting the group's expectations. She was voted (or not) with the expectation that she was close to the ideal, then she should have acted like one.
According to her, more or less, a person can't go untainted with a system like ours. She has become a part of a present system, in fact, she even headed it. A meaningful movement should be done to change that system. And as part of it, it is more heroic to help hasten that change than to take hold of its retention.
