PBB has just crowned a new winner. And it was no other than the very lovable Bea. It was bittersweet finale for me. Just like almost everybody else, I hated Wendy. But I was rooting for Gee-Anne, and she only placed 4th.

My fave. I rooted for Gee-Ann all season long.

And while I hated Wendy ever since she entered the house, I felt a little pity toward her when she got booed all night long. The people were relentless. Payback was a beyotch. And maybe, she deserved it.

The UST Women's Volleyball Team has made it to the finals of the ongoing Shakey's V-League. Hurrah!!

It was an uphill climb for the Tigresses, who started erratically in the eliminations, but swept all their games in the semis to emerge number one going into the finals. They will be facing the tough San Sebastian squad.

I am proud of these girls. I am hoping they'll do their best in the finals, and eventually win the crown.

Bad news, though, for the UST Seniors Men's Basketball Team. Jojo Duncil, who led the Tigers in the extra period to stun the fancied Ateneo Blue Eagles, has decided to go PRO.

UST has lost a vital cog to its 2006 championship team. But you should not take Duncil's going pro by just face value. Rumors circulated that he has already 25. And in the UAAP guidelines, no one is allowed to play after reaching the maximum age of 25.

His age is still in question because there are two Jojo Duncil birth certificates making the rounds. The first one, UST's copy, says Duncil was born in 1983, thus he is just 24, and still eligible to play. The other, maintains that he was born in 1983 and is already 25.

Darryl Basa, one of my faves in Team B, is taking the last spot vacated by Duncil. The other rookies are Rum Perry Scott, Kashim Mirza, Hector Badua, and Soriano.

Will UST be able to defend the crown with the loss of Jojo, and the return of De La Salle?

We shall find out. The UAAP Season 70 starts on July 7. UST will be playing its first game at 4 p.m. on July 8, Sunday, at the Cuneta Astrodome in Pasay, City, against UE .

I know I have not been updating my blog lately. I have been too busy with school and other activities. School's been running for just three weeks now, but I already feel tired and uninspired. This has got to change.

Just last Tuesday, I, together with the rest of Journ Soc officers, went to Quezon City, Tiendesitas, Eastwood, and Makati to look for a venue where we could hold our annual acquaintance party and the 2007 Mr. and Ms. Journalism.

I was a contestant last year, but this time, it's gonna be different, since I am in charge of the contest. Pray for me so that I would be able to do a good job.

Besides being busy, I think blogging's been sort of passe now. I am thinking of transferring to Multiply because it is the "in" thing. But this is my baby. It is going to be difficult to leave it.

Speaking of multiply, the multiply account of the UST Journalism Society is now up.

So to all journ students, alum, teachers, and friends who wanna stay connected, just add our multiply account.

he is my hero

You and i may not be extremely close. I may not understand you at times, and you may also feel the same toward me.

But for working really hard from the day you learned you and mom were going to have me up to now to be able to send itoy and I to school, for sacrificing and going abroad to provide us with better things, for taking us to different places each time we're together, for taking care of me when I am sick, for always telling me I can do whatever I set my eyes onto, for understanding each time I tell you I did not make the dean's list (again), thank you, daddy. You are my hero. I love you.

Happy Fathers' Day to my daddy, to my lolo, and all the great dads around the world!!

Smile naman 'dyan. God bless us all!!

time flies

I couldn’t believe it. It seemed just yesterday when I graduated from high school. I was teary-eyed as I bid my school and my classmates goodbye.

And now, I am in my senior year as college student. Shocks, time really flies.

I could still remember how I walked through the streets of Lacson and España to get to St. Raymund’s Building; how I made a quick stop at a nearby convenience shop to get some m & m’s; how I sat together with Aika, Jenny, Aianne and Rea at the back; how AA pulled a prank on all of us; how we arranged our seats alphabetically as our first teacher, Barney, arrived; and how we accompanied Hershey, whom I initially found “epal”, to buy her ballpen in a nearby bookstore, and then went home walking.

Many things have happened during my stay in college. Some bad, some ugly, but all the great things outweigh every negative thing that happened.

I came to class a little late today. I was not expecting that our teacher would be there already. I was welcomed with shouts of excitement by my classmates. I entered the room with confidence—very different from the way I did back in first year.

In one year’s time, I will (hopefully) be graduating. I better make this year special for me and the people around me.

Smile naman d’yan. God bless us all!!
