An interview with myself (Part 2)
Okay, tell us about College life.
Ay wow... college life was fun! I had newfound independence kasi hawak ko ang oras ko, I can go anywhere I want without my parents knowing... alam mo na. So ayun... bagong barkada, bagong mga gimik. Mahirap yung mga subject, pero there were certain people and events that made the journey worthwhile. Some of those is yung mga taga-Plaridel, yung official student publication ng La Salle published in Filipino.
Ang dami kong natutunan sa mga tao roon. Tapang, unang-una na. Biruin mo muntik na akong makasuhan ng libel nun... pero that's another story. Nalampasan ko naman, so thankful ako na na-experience ko yun kasi it added more character to me, in effect.
Ano ang favorite mong tambayan nung College?
Plaridel office. Swear to God, pag andun ka... you don't need to be anywhere else. Andun na lahat. May libreng chika, libreng food... dudukot-dukot ka lang sa mga kumakain, libreng music, libreng freak show, libre phone calls... saan ka pa, diba?
Outside campus naman, madalas kami sa Robinson's Ermita. Nanonood ng sine, kumakain... or kapag walang-wala talaga... tambay lang tsaka window shopping. Madalas kami ng barkada ko sa Astrovision, kasi nags-scan kami dun ng mga lumang pelikula na gusto naming bilhin. Tapos madalas pag lumalabas kami roon, si Ice at si Ian lang ang may nabili. Andami kasing pera!
What was the most difficult time you had?
Yung transition stage from being a regular student to a student majoring in Communication Arts. We were warned that it was going to be really hard, pero grabe... hindi mo mare-realize yun hangga't hindi mo mararanasan. Deadlines every week, hands-on lahat ng mga project! Layout ng mga pahina ng diyaryo, script for TELEPRO, RADIPRO, may FOTOCAM pa! Walang pahinga kaming lahat nun!
Idagdag mo pa yung fact na nasa Plaridel ako nun and I had to meet certain deadlines for research and articles. Grabe... Superwoman ako nun! Feeling ko lang ha?
Usapang cheating... nag-cheat ka ba nung College?
As far as I can remember, no. Saw someone cheating, yes. But ako mismo... hindi.
O... intriga naman tayo. Did you ever fall in love with anyone while in College?
I would like to believe so. I had a couple of crushes... tapos siguro masasabi ko na sa lahat sa kanila, dalawa yung sobrang OVER talaga ang attraction ko at yung intensity nung hurt na naramdaman ko. Itago na lang natin sila sa pangalang Raymond at Perry. Asus! May mga ganun pa...
Si Raymond, I liked him because he was smart and funny... good-looking din. Ang husay nitong taong ito with words. Artistic siya, sobra. Naging inspiration ko siya nung last term ng freshman year ko onwards hanggang sa makilala ko naman si Perry nung bandang junior year ko na. Si Perry naman, very charming. Ang ganda ng boses! That was his deadly weapon sa akin, pati the way he talked, napaka-smooth talker kasi. His voice made me feel beautiful... Charuz!
Ayun... kamusta naman sila ngayon... wa na! I still keep in touch with Perry and I see him around every now and then. Pero si Raymond, since graduation day last January hindi ko na siya nakita uli.
Siyempre hindi matatapos ang usapang College pag walang usapang thesis... how did your thesis go?
My thesismates, Lea and Ice, and I had a very hard time. Ambitious kasi kami masyado. Gusto namin breakthrough talaga yung gagawin namin. Awa ng Diyos, ayun! Na-delay kami twice... two takes sa Proposal Writing, tapos two takes sa Production. The thing is, kaya kami na-delay sa production kasi may back subjects ako na tinatapos, and hindi ako nakapag-focus sa mga shooting namin. Ako pa naman yung director... so nag-suffer talaga yung thesis namin.
In a way, na-guilty ako kasi naging mitsa ako ng pagka-delay namin. So mega-bawi ako nung tumutok na kami sa Production. So ayun, sa pagkatagal-tagal ng nilakbay namin... tatlong change of location, tatlong change of actors... nakatapos din!
So what do you think is your best and worst trait?
Best trait, I think is yung pagiging open ko sa mga tao at bagay sa paligid ko. I get to learn a lot of things, meet a lot of new people... most of whom are very nice, warm and maaasahan. I like making friends, kaya nage-enjoy ako with new people I've been meeting. I'm thankful na ganito ako ka-open... although siguro nga paminsan-minsan may downside ang pagiging sobrang open ko, pero dagdag lesson din yun sa akin.
My worst trait is procrastination. I tend to procrastinate a lot, lalo na pag nada-divert yung attention ko from what I'm supposed to do to what I want to do at the moment. Tuloy ang dami kong nakakalimutang gawin, daming nabibitin na trabaho, and so on and so forth.
Ano'ng ginawa mo immediately after graduation?
Kumain sa Max's. Hehehe... 'de! Dun kasi kami nag-celebrate.
After grad, nag-direct ako ng concert ng St. Scholastica's College HS Glee Club. Sobrang fulfilling nung concert na yun! It was fun working with an old teacher/friend, Miss Gretchen, who trusted me enough to make me direct the 40th anniversary concert of the said organization. Not to mention, magagaling din talaga yung Glee Club. Sobrang saya... I get so high working with talented, musically-inclined people.
I got paid 2,500 for my job as a director... for about a month of working, that's not bad. Masaya, super. I wish I could do it again.
Let's talk about music. What kinds of songs do you listen to at home?
Depende sa mood and time of day. Pag umagang-umaga at kailangan kong magising, pop-rock ang laman ng cd player ko. Mga tipong The Calling, Matchbox Twenty, Lifehouse, Bon Jovi... or, dance music nina Sean Paul, R. Kelly, Fifty Cent. Pag gabing-gabi naman, Mellow Touch ang companion ko. Gusto ko ng senti music from the 70's-90's, yung talagang tagos sa puso. Mga tipong Wilson Philips, James Ingram, Barry Manilow, Expose, Starship, Fra Lippo... yung mga contemporary din, gusto ko like sina Enrique Iglesias, Bellefire, Mikaila.
Any current favorites?
Meron akong gusto pero hindi ko alam yung title eh. Basta lalaki yung kumanta tapos yung lyrics ng chorus ganito: "I think I'm falling, falling in love with you. And I don't, I don't know what to do..." (Panawagan: Sa nakakaalam po ng kantang ito, puwedeng pakisabi naman sa akin, thanks.) Lagi kong naririnig 'to sa radyo, pero hindi ko alam yung title.
Kanino mo naman dine-dedicate yung kantang iyan?
Kanino pa eh di sa kanya!
Bakit "I think" pa lang?
Bakit ba mas marunong ka pa? Eh, "I think" pa lang naman talaga?
Sure ka? Eh kung makapag-text ka dun eh parang...
Ayaw na nga kita kausap! Matulog ka na! May pasok ka pa mamaya! Live and taping pa kayo, kamo! At... at... maglo-location hunt ka na naman! Matulog ka na... binabaltik ka na naman, sampalin kita diyan eh!
