When I was a freshman, I used to always wear makeup. But when the things I have to do started to become harder and pile up, I found myself going to class bare-faced.
I’ve known you since high school. We’ve been roommates since we were both freshmen. You’re like my sister. I treat you like a sister- I both hate and love you so much at the same time.
I know you’re lazy- to the point where you would even find drinking medicine and eating bothersome.
I know you don’t like studying, but you still apss every exam.
I know you were never a tidy person, you go for months on end without cleaning your area of the dorm and changing the sheets of your bed.
But dear, we have our own apartment now. No more manang to clean up after us. This is independent living, and you’re living with somebody. I love you. But I can’t keep picking up after you. I can’t always be the one putting things where they belong, sweeping the floor, washing the dishes, turning off the appliances you always forget to turn off. We have to help each other.
Please, think of how I feel as well. You have time to go out until late at night with your friends and boyfriend, you even have time to stay up late watching anime and series, but you can’t spare even a minute to look after our room.
I love you, but seriously, I am beginning to grow tired of being patient with you. Within this week, I am really going to talk to you, heart to heart.

"I want to write a novel about silence. The things people don’t say."
It was rainy. The bus I was on was full, I was already standing and I had many luggage. Majority of the people in the bus I was in were fellow UPLB students.
I am not ranting about the males not letting me sit instead, I’m also a feminist, I believe in gender equality. But it just makes me think about what happened to the maginoo (gentleman) quality of the Pinoys.
Then a pregnant lady boarded, with lots of luggage as well. And, guess what, no one gave up their seat for her. I mean, really? If I wasn’t already standing, I would give up my seat for her. To make it worse, like I said, the bus was filled with UP students. What happened to the Iskolar ng bayan, para sa bayan? Is that just a tagline? Does that mean nothing? No, let’s make it simpler, is it not basic and given decorum to give up your seat to someone who needs it more? Not just for guys, but also for girls. In the end, the pregnant lady just got off the bus.
I am disappointed not just as my schoolmates, but also on the driver and conductor of the bus. They could have discouraged the lady to get on the bus in the first place, or they could have reminded someone to give her a seat.
This is a small thing, but it reflects the state our country is in. It seems like not only are we economically poor, but we also suffer from lack of character. Please. Yes, life is hard, but it doesn’t mean that you can let go of your good manners. Social status must not be a hindrance to doing good. We are all equal, living, suffering, and wanting a little bit of comfort. Will a little act of kindness hurt you? I don’t think so.
This is not being dominating or arrogant.
I think that lower classmen should pay due respect to their seniors. No matter the age, no matter the social status, heck, no matter even the height.
Your upperclassmen has been through a lot already. They’ve experienced and done things you have yet to go through. They know things only experience can teach. Disrespecting and/or neglecting to acknowledge their seniority them shows pride and arrogance. Just a simple ate/kuya and po/opo will do.
This is simple manners, one that must already be given. If you can’t pay respect to your school seniors, how much more-or rather, less- are you treating your elders?
We Filipinos are famous for being polite. It’s just disappointing to see that the younger generation seems to be forgetting their manners.
