    • Hello po! Nagsimula akong magsulat sa WordPress noong Nobyembre sa isang blog ngunit natigil ang aking paglalagay ng artikulo bandang Pebrero. Pagkatapos ay naging kabahagi ako ng isang community blog na hanggang ngayon ay aktibo pa rin. Ito po ang pangatlong blog ko sa WordPress at nawa ay patuloy akong makapaglagay ng mga sanaysay. Salamat din po sa pagbisita!

  3. Unang pagkakataon kong makabasa ng blog sa wordpress na nakalimbag sa Filipinong Wika (baka nga lang hindi rin ako gaanong naghahanap) at may kakaibang dalang tuwa ang pagbabasa ko sa iyong mga kwento at opinyon.

    Wari ko’y may impluwensya ni Ong o di kaya’y ni Atalia ang iyong istilo ng pagsulat kaya naman kahit sa mga payak na usapin ay nakakatawa at nakakatuwa ang iyong blog.

    Di ako bihasa sa Tagalog (kaunti lang) ngunit labis akong humahanga sa mga taong patuloy na nagpapalawig ng mga salitang tulad ng sariling atin maging sa puro o “colloquial” man na paraan. Ito ay nagpapahiwatig ng mataas na antas ng tatas at karunungan.

    I appreciate thoughts in any kind of language as long as expressed with aesthetics, humor, and sense. As a Filipino, it’s also refreshing to read thoughts and perspectives through the Filipino Language.

    Looking forward to reading more of your delightful thoughts. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Thank you po! Malapit ko na nga pong baguhin ang biodata ko. In four months, “Si Dwight De Leon ay kasalukuyang kumukuha ng kursong BA Communication Research sa University of the Philippines Diliman”. Hihihi. ๐Ÿ™‚

        • A campus press conference colleague of mine is currently the sports editor of Plaridel. Di naman po ako ganoon kagaling na writer, pero I’ll try to audition. ๐Ÿ™‚

          To be honest, wala naman talaga akong pakialam kung anong course o campus ang papasahan ko. Sabi ko nga months ago, di bale kahit second choice campus, di bale kahit second choice course, di bale kahit DPWAS, di bale kahit pending, basta makita ko ang pangalan ko sa website ng UP pagdating ng February.

          Pero after mag-fade ng sobrang kasiyahan, napag-isip-isip ko nga, ano bang gagawin ko sa CommRes? I consulted an ‘ate’ who studies CommRes at UP, tungkol sa pagkakaiba ng CommRes (second choice) sa BroadComm (first choice). My problem kasi with BroadComm ay ‘yung takot ko mismo. I’m not really talented, skillful, goodlooking, physically ready and confident. I don’t even know if I’m competitive enough to get a job right after graduating college. Kaya ko nilagay ang CommRes ay dahil sa preliminary mindset ko na ang CommRes ay ‘sa likod ng camera’, at dahil nandoon daw po ang pera sa MassCom.

          Now, my problem with CommRes, ayon din sa nakausap ko, is that it is quite technical. Para daw gumagawa ng two thesis per semester. At ngayon sa high school life ko na hanggang ngayon ay hindi pa ako nakakapagpasa ng research paper (simply because the whole stuff is boring and demanding both at the same time), hindi ko alam kung magiging masaya ba ako sa course na ‘yun, o kung kakayanin ko at the very least. Kaya doon sa reply slip na ibinigay ng UP, nilagay ko na magpa-consider sa BroadComm na waitlisted course ko. Kung matatanggap ako doon, doon na ako. Pero kung hindi naman, I’ll stick with CommRes and test the waters kung fulfilling siya on my part.

          Kayo po ba? Di ba po UP CMC student din kayo? Ano pong suggestion niyo? Or dagdag na info between the two courses. Hirap din po kasi akong mag-decide e. ๐Ÿ™‚

          • Siyempre, dito talaga tayo nagka-kuwentuhan. Yes, I’m an alumnus of CMC and of TNP. Well, I think the campus pubs will still be good exposure for you, skills and awareness-wise. No matter what your talent level is. You’ll learn more as you progress in college, and then again, not all. You’ll even learn other stuff once you work.

            While I’m sure looks are an asset in broadcomm (or mass comm in general), it’s not all about the on-cam work. Heck, not all broad comm graduates go in front of the camera. but if your long-term goal is production (news or otherwise), maybe this would be the course for you. (If you want to focus on news naman whatever the medium, I’d still recommend BA Journalism).

            Comm Res is exactly that–communication research. Basically sociology or psychology or statistics plotted into communication. Totoo yun, CommRes majors do 2 research papers every sem, and they also contribute to a department-wide research study every sem as well. Wala masyadong production work doon, more on research (focus groups, surveys, analysis, etc.) So kung hindi mo feel yun, it’s all right to consider shifting.

            Or, if you want to do both, then get into comm res and also join a broadcasting org like BroadAss, BroadGuild, MCO, or DZUP Radio Circle. That’s a good option if you don’t pass into BC.

            What do you think?
