Selective Empathy

Lying on my bed while holding my cellular phone, it was a typical lazing around day for me. I scrolled through my most-used social media platform, hoping to find fresh memes I could laugh about. Yes, I found some but I noticed something that really bugged my tranquility at that time. My news feed, as …

Junkie Wannabe

Each one of us constantly craves for food. We all have that in common and that is just completely human nature. Moreover, we resort to food – all types of it, mostly junk food – when we are hungry, when it is time to eat or even when we are stressed-out. With that being said, …

Promoting the Green

While this academic year has defined countless of activities to enrich student life in Negros Oriental State University (NORSU), we cannot deny how much solid waste is left after these events take place. For some, it probably is a petty issue, but it actually contributes to the increasing deterioration of mother nature. In our day …

Is Duma still safe?

Dumaguete City is dubbed as the City of Gentle People. Through the years, it has shown great progress – from the new buildings that have been built, the growing number of tourists visiting, and the unique delicacies – and is now popular not only to the locals but also to foreign people. Certainly that with …

Lisod dagay

Throwing garbage seems easy and I think segregating it properly might not be that of a burden, too. But why is it that whenever I pass by garbage containers inside the campus (or even across the city), plastic and paper always seem to be much of a pair? Even though these garbage receptacles have signs …

Mahiya naman kaayo

Heto na, sasabihin ko na ang hinaing ng mga estudyanteng araw-gabing nag-aaral para sa kanilang kinabukasan, seryosong nagsisikap at binibigay lahat ng makakaya upang hindi bumagsak. Pero, bakit ang mismong nagpapahirap sa kanila ay ang mga gurong ang resposibilidad ay turuan ang bawat mag-aaral? Sila dapat ang gumagabay sa mga estudyante ngunit para bang naging …

Unli-rice please!’

Habang ako’y naglalakad patungong paaralan, nadaanan ko sa palengke ang lupon ng mga konsumador na nagsisiksikan, nagsasakripisyo sa tila NORSU enrolment na pilahan. Aba’y naalala ko lang. Hindi ko man napuna ngunit tinanong ko ang isang ginang kung ano ang nangyari. “Bagsak-presyo raw ang NFA!” Palibhasa’y hindi nabago sa’kin o sa’ting mga Pilipino ang pagtaas …

Teleserye ng pinagmulan

Tayong mga Pilipino ay isang malaking tagahanga ng mga soap operas at mga dramang ipinapalabas sa telebisyon. Ang mga palabas na ito ay sumasalamin sa ating mga kultura kung kaya, karamihan sa mga ito ay nakasentro sa pamilya. Hindi rin natin maitatangi na napakaimpluwensiyal ng mga palabas na ito. Isang mabuting halimbawa nito ang pagsibol …

Quality Instruction

‘Ing.ana man gud ng College’. Sa tuwing ibabahagi ko ang aking mga hinaing tungkol sa mga gurong hindi nagtuturo, ito ang kalimitang naririnig ko mula sa aking paligid. Mabigat sa aking loob na ito ang mindset ng ilang tao, na sa kolehiyo ayos lang na ang mga mag-aaral ang umaako sa responsibilidad ng mga guro …
