What is "Death"

What is death?
Henry Scott Holland

Death is nothing at all.
I have only slipped away into the next room.
I am I and you are you.
Whatever we were to each other,
that we still are.

Call me by my old familiar name.
Speak to me in the easy way
which you always used.
Put no difference on your tone.
Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow.

Laughed as we always laughed
at the little jokes we enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me, and pray for me.
Let my name be ever the household word
that it always was.
Let it be spoken without affect,
without the trace of a shadow on it.

Life means all that it ever meant.
It is the same that it ever was.
There is absolutely unbroken continuity.
Why should I be out of mind
because I am out of sight?

I am waiting for you,
for an interval,
somewhere very near,
just around the corner.
All is well.

A lost of a love one in life is some what both tragic and relieving. Tragic in the sense that it is a fact that we can no longer mingle with them like we used too when they were still alive, but on the other hand, relieving that we consider that they have gone to a better place where there will be no more suffering for them.

"Why should I be out of mind
because I am out of sight?"

Condolence to my buddy luiboy... hang'on dude...

We won..

Every graduating student of our course in our school is entitled to come up with a theater presentation for us to graduate. It serves as our final requirements in our intro to drama class. Now in our group we selected Juan Paulo Mendoza as our director, which is, for all we know that it is the heart and soul of the production. We put into in hands the future and outcome of our grades and probably our lives to because if we can not meet to the expectation of our professors we are likely to repeat that subject again, and it means that there is no graduation for us this March.

Now we started from delegating the jobs and their corresponding job description to each and everyone in our group. I was fortunately to be a STAGECREW??? Well at first I’m kind of confused and disappointed of it because a “stage crew” is the one who will be the handy man in production, meaning that I will be carrying the props the back drafts and everything that needs to be carry but eventually I realize that it is beneficiary for me because it means that I can still workout my biceps. And I will not be much needed in any rehearsals because my job is only behind the scenes and only at the exact day of the presentation. Our presentation is entitled “Basketball Fight” which is a comedy one. Rehearsals are done and here comes our play date. In the production side which I myself is involved have to wake up at around 3 a.m. for us to carry all needed props and back drafts in our presentation venue.

The time has come for it’s our group’s turn to present. Dude the house was really full. Our actors were really nervous and they keep on throwing lines to themselves just to keep them busy and occupied. The presentation turned out well and it was very much appreciated by the audience because you would really hear and see that they are entertained and they actually laughed, that for me is that it is very hard to make people laughed rather to make them cry or scream. It really takes a lot of effort and guts to achieve it. Overall outcome is that people applauded our play and we got the awards namely: best director, best supporting actress, best set design and lastly 2005 best comedy play. We won big time.. Thanks guys.

Angels and Demons

The book was very nice indeed. It will make you question your faith to God. Actually it was only my second option to read this book. I intended to read a book also made by Dan Brown which is the Da Vinci Code but unfortunately it was out of stock in the bookstore but then I came into cross to this book also made by Dan Brown entitled Angels and Demons.

It is a story about an underground society called Illuminati which is a society of scientist trying to discover the answer to where we all have started. The church says that God ordered that “there would be light!”, and because “HE” is the Supreme Being there was no questions asked no debate or what so ever that it did happen. Now since our faith was already settled in that explanation, the question is that, can it really happen? Consider this, take away that supernatural explanation and consider the facts that our world has. What do you get? Nothing right??? Nothing can exist without any beginning. Now there are some theories that physicist gave us but the most popular of all is the Big Bang theory. Where in certain amounts of matter collided that formed a living organism.. I won’t go that far into explaining but the thing that makes the book very interesting is that it actually makes you think about, what if the explanation of the church on where we come from is just some lie to keep our faith intact? What if the facts given in the story is accurate? What if there is really a war going on that we don’t know that the church is actually intends to take a life of a human being to prevent the truth from coming out?

The book does not question the stand of the church nor to make us confused in our faith but the thing is what if these things are true…???

I got the part..

As a part of our requirements for graduation my block mates and I are required to take a subject called “Intro. To Drama and Basic Acting”. In other words I will be forced to act in front of a crowd to which I do not usually do. So I took it for the sake of graduation and not knowing that I will be getting a lead role in one of my professor’s theater presentation for our midterm period. My role is “Hugo” a farmer which has a wife named “Kamaldang” who keeps on yelling at him from time to time ordering him to wash the dishes. But one day “Hugo” had enough and decided to take some action. He stood up and told “Kamaldang” that he will never ever wash any dishes from now on. “Kamaldang” became angry and started to chase “Hugo” with a broom stick, “Hugo” hided under the table and convinced “Kamaldang” to come up with a “Wager” that will decide who wash the dishes always. The “Wager” was to never speak because the first person who speaks will wash the dishes “Always”. Sounds simple right??? but what if their neighbors intervened and actually tried their best to make them both speak. Now since the couple are not speaking at all they assumed that they were bewitched and their souls have already gone from their body and the only thing that will save their souls and prevent this witchcraft from spreading from their town is to bury them alive. The played ended in favor of “Hugo” because “Kamaldang” has a fear of coffins that made her speak to prevent herself from getting inside the coffin.

Daily rehearsals are made and it was scheduled for us to present the piece is on Monday. I hope and I really do pray that I won’t disappoint my group mates who worked hard to make this presentation a good one. Wish me luck guys..
