Top 5 worst action movie sequels

Hollywood films are often the best at what they do than that of its Asian counterparts. But sometimes, they seem to either overdo an element or rather disappoint us from what we’re expecting with their movie sequels. So much so, that we sometimes wish they didn’t make the sequel at all. Today, we would talk about great Hollywood action films that disappointed us with their sequels.

WORST.jpg

How do we measure sequels? We measure them by their connections to the first film. By that alone, we can tell whether the sequel is worthy enough for you to watch or they shouldn’t have released the film because it will make us cry.

Unlike the Matrix Trilogy, we didn’t get disappointed by its sequel because the movie is supplying us the info we need to understand the whole story. As a result, each sequel (and even it’s anime series) connect to each other, thus resulting in a satisfying franchise.

#1 Resident Evil: The Final Chapter
Ahh, the epitome of a failed sequel. Resident Evil franchise almost made it through the taste of the RE fans when they released its fourth installment – Resident Evil: Retribution introducing the popular Resident Evil characters Hollywood versions in one film. In the sequel, fans are pretty hyped as they saw the lead character Alice and the other Resident Evil characters: Leon, Jill, Ada, and, the bad turned good Albert Wesker as they do the humanity’s last stand to fight the forces of the dead. Seeing that pose will send you chills and will make you expect what the last chapter would be. But then, we got disappointed on its final sequel where we learn that the no.1 enemy Wesker just lured them all in the White House just to kill every remaining force in one blow! What an A-hole.

#2 Transformers: Age of Extinction
On their first movie, Transformers sky-rocketed, winning the hearts of every fan around the world. Seeing their favorite anime Optimus Prime in the flesh (or metal) is a special kind of Jaw-dropping feeling. Then its first sequel Revenge of the Fallen came, and we learned that the Autobots are in a great fight again. Then, Dark of the Moon where we got introduced to more Transformers and more history and honestly speaking, in this chapter I felt this kind of plot is getting old. And then, the Age of Extinction where we finally realized this has to stop. And in the end, despite all bad criticisms, they still made another sequel Transformers: The Last Knight and now…okay…we gotta get out of here and just watch 47 Meters Down in the next Cinema Room.

#3 A Good Day to Die Hard
Bruce Willis should’ve ended it in 4.0 Live Free or Die Hard. Seeing our favorite bald actions star hero doing deadly stunts on Die Hard 4.0 is amazing. Age hasn’t slowed him down a bit. The story is awesome, the action is breathtaking, and the concept is unique. Until of course, A Good Day to Die Hard sequel came. It’s this America versus Russia conflict all over again where a Russian enemy (why not?) will do something that will spark a war between the two nations again and John McClane, an American operative is there to make sure it won’t happen. Sure, the place is somewhere different than its prequel but what else is missing in action movie about a hard-to-kill American besides the Russians, right? Yeah, if the Nazi is still alive, that would be Die Hard’s sixth installment until somebody actually killed McClane hard enough.

#4 The Transporter 2, 3, and…
Transporter – hand’s down. Very impressive movie, very impressive driving, very unique story, very good in almost everything. At first, I hate it when he had to do the job without his car but I remembered, it’s not about the car, but it’s about the man driving the car. Then a sequel came and I’m already asking myself why does trouble always finds this guy? I mean really, how many times does he have to get in trouble by just transporting a package in a day? No matter what he’s transporting: be it a kid, an emo girl, or a Chinese pornstar, he’s always getting involved in something bigger. But yeah, that’s where the story is all about, right? But that doesn’t make it a sequel anymore. Although fans are still getting the same jaw-dropping action (which gave them the idea what would happen if we put that fancy driving to the Fast and Furious franchise… which we all got in Furious 7) we still embraced the 2nd and 3rd installment. And then they made a remake. Ugh! Unbelievable.

#5 Terminator Genesys
Terminator 4 for me is a disappointment for showing a CGI Arnold Schwarzenegger. I still prefer the real Arnold. But it’s not about the cast that made us think the franchise should have ended there. It’s the fact that no matter how we twist the story, we all know that Humans will win against machines. So the installments are only to support how would John Conor win the war. And then Terminator Genesys. I know you’d say “Oh no, that’s not a sequel. it’s a prequel because it only brings us to the first film about Sarah Conor and Kyle Reese.” Well, lady’s and gentlemen, you’re right and you’re also wrong. Like the judgment day where the war against the machine is unstoppable, John Connor winning it is also determined. They should have created the final chapter as to how John Connor fought hard with the resistance and won the battle. That’s it! But then, what is this sudden turn of events in Terminator Genesys? Skynet suddenly changing plans? A delay of Judgement Day? And the worst part, John Connor as the enemy? I’m so done.

InfiniteTornAlpaca-mobile

I could’ve added Fast and Furious but so far, but the more sequel they make, the better it gets. Their sequel always has the connection to its prequels. They even managed to put a scene in Tokyo Drift as a teaser to the next sequel, and you already know the next FF would still fit for a good rated sequel.

Ang Peste-8 sa Opisina mo

peste

Introducing, ang mga taong bumubuo sa opisina mo araw-araw. Mga taong pe-peste sa umaga mo at mag-iiwan ng dahilan ng pananakit ng batok mo sa gabi.

Alam ko’ng ngayon palang ay kumukunot na ang iyong kilay dahil hindi ka pa umaabot sa main part, ay naaalala mo na kaagad kung pa’no nasira ang araw mo dahil sa mga ka-trabaho mo. Parang si Jollibee lang iyan na hindi nagsasawang magpa-bibo na kulang nalang ay tumambling siya sa harapan mo, mai-bida lang niya ang suot niyang sandals.

Ngunit alam nating lahat na hindi lang si Jollibee ang maaaring maging ugat ng init ng ulo mo sa iyong trabaho – at hindi trabaho ang tinutukoy ko kundi ang mga katrabaho mo mismo. Upang mas makilala mo sila, iisa-isahin ko na para sa’yo – Ang mga miyembrong bumubo ng Peste-8 sa Opisina Mo:

#1. Jollibee – Kung hindi mo kilala si Jollibee at hindi mo napansin yung nakaraang blog ko tungkol sa kanya, ipapakilala ko ulit siya sa’yo. Siya ay ang iyong pabibong officemate. Siya yung hindi nauubusan ng maipagmamayabang mai-bida niya lang ang sarili niya sa lahong lahat ng kaugalian ng mga miyembro ng Peste-8 ay kaya niya rin gawin.

#2. Taong Linta – Mas makapit pa sa tuko itong si Linta-Man kung maka sipsip sa taong may mataas na katungkulan sa opisina niyo. Alindog at nakalalasong bulong ang kanyang pangunahing armas upang mapaikot ang boss niyo. At kung di ka nabiyayaan ng magandang kaanyuan, ay siguradong pupulutin ka sa kangkungan pag kinalaban mo si LintaMan/Woman.

#3. Song Bird – Ito naman yung ka-officemate mong daig pa si regine vilasquez sa galing nitong kumanta ng mga kalokohang ginagawa at hindi mo ginagawa sa opisina. Siya yung willing makinig sa mga saloobin at hinanakit mo tungkol sa kunpanya, na willing din naman niya i-kanta sa boss mo. Kasasabi mo lang sa kanya kanina na huwag sasabihin sa iba, biglang magugulat ka nalang alam na kagad ng boss mo. Chismax to the max. Ang galing, sana isinigaw mo nalang.

#4. Mr.Krabs – ang kaopisina mo namang hihilahin ka pababa, huwag lang maunahan. Siya yung kaopisina mong hindi natutuwa pag napupuri ang iba. Maaaring inggit o sadyang nasa dugo na niya ang pagiging isang atleta – pinanganak upang makipag kumpetensya. Marunong rin tumira ng pailalim itong si Mr. Krabs na handa siyang isabotahe ang pag-unlad mo upang hindi ka maka-ahon sa putik na kinalulubugan mo.

#5. Master Buraot – Tinamaan ng matinding kahirapan ang kaopisinang mong ito dahil sa tuwing may isusubo ka, ay hihingin niya ang kalahati. OO KALAHATI. Dahil ayaw niyang sumobra, nakakahiya nga naman. Ngunit kapag mas kaunti naman ay hindi na siya nakakatulog sa gabi. Kung may tatlong siomai ka, tag-isa’t kalahati kayo. Hindi pwedeng isa lang ang sa kanya, sayang naman yung kalahati. Malakas din ang pandinig ni Master Buraot. Naririnig niya ang kaluskos ng binubuksang chipy across the office floor at gagamit siya ng hypersonic teleportation. Magugulat ka nalang, nakapasok na ang kamay niya sa sitsirya mo.

#6. Utang Lord – Parang si Linta-Man lang din, malagkit kumapit pag may kailangan, ngunit Madulas pag araw na ng bayaran. Nakakaawa ang kaniyang mga tingin at talaga namang ikaw ang lalabas na masamang tao pag hindi mo siya napautang. Ngunit pag araw na ng singilan, nagiging ninja ang kaopisina mong ito, biglang nawawala.

#7. Swiper – Mas mabilis pa sa alas-kwatro kung pumitik ng bolpen ang mga makakating kamay nitong kaopisinang mo na si Swiper. Hindi mo madadaan sa written report, dahil wala ka nang ballpen bago ka pa makahanap ng papel. At dahil kakampi niya ang taong Linta, hindi mo rin magawang magsumbong dahil alam mong ikaw ang talo. Siya ang pangunahing salarin sa nawawala mong kagamitan sa locker na hindi mo mai-lock kasi may kumuha ng padlock. At bukod sa mga nawawalang personal na kagamitan, siya din ang nasa likod ng mga nawawalang office supplies gaya ng isang rim ng bond paper, markers at ballpens, station mouse, pakete ng kape, tissue, atbp. magbubukas ata siya g office supplies sa bahay nila.

#8. Beastmode – Madalas siya ang boss mo o supervisor mo. Pag may nagawa ka, pagagalitan ka niya. Pag wala ka naman ginawa, pagagalitan ka parin niya. “Bakit hindi? eh wala ka ngang ginagawa diba?!” pagagalitan ka nanaman niyan. Para bang pinaglihi siya sa sama ng loob at araw-araw siya naglilihi. Kagaya mo, maaring nasira lang din ang araw niya dahil sa mga kapwa niya peste sa opnisina ninyo. Ang pinagkaiba niya lang sayo, mas pinili niyang ipamahagi ang nasirang araw niya sa iba. Shampoo nalang ang dalhin mo, sagot na niya ang pag sabon sa’yo.

Sampung Senyales na isa kang Taong Pa-BIBO

Pabibo ka ba?

Kung hindi mo alam kung nagiging Pabibo ka na, malamang ay dahil hindi mo alam ang ibig-sabihin pag tawag ka’ng pabibo.

Ano nga ba ang pabibo?

Ang Pabibo (o Pabida) ay nagmula sa salitang tagalog na bibo na ang ibig sabihin ay batang kapansin-pansin dahil sa kaugalian nitong pagiging cute, makulit, masigla, at masiyahin na ikinatutuwa ng mga matatanda. Bidang-bida sa paningin dahil talaga namang nakaka-kuha ng pansin.

1115754

Ngunit pag tinawag kang Pabibo o Pabida, ay iba nang usapan iyan. Mayroon kang ginagawa na akala mo’y wasto, yoon pala’y labis nang kinaiinis ng iba. Ngunit sa halip na idaan nila ito sa marahas at madugong paraan, sa halip ay tinatawag ka nalang nila na isang taong Pabibo.

Pabibo ka. Hindi ka nakakatuwa.

Sandali lang. Bitawan mo muna yang lubid. Maaaring nararanasan mong matawag na pabibo dahil hindi mo alam ang ginagawa mo. Heto, sasabihin ko sayo ang sampung bagay na ginagawa mo na kung hindi mo titigilan ay sila na mismo ang sasakal sayo:

1. Mahilig kang Magpasikat

Ito marahil ang pinaka-unang dahilan upang mapaaway ka sa kanto. Lahat ng taong pabibo ay mayroon nito. Mahilig kang magpasikat. Ang hilig mong ipakita sa lahat ang mga bagay na mayroon ka. Hindi buo ang araw mo pag hindi mo nai-bida ang bagay na akala mo’ng ikaw lang ang mayroon. Kaya’t pag nalaman mong mayroon din yung taong pinagmamayabangan mo, nananahimik ka bigla.

0dc41f60e62fd865059da7ee28a941982fd20753e2f7cb245442aab6a5e2ce92.jpg

2. Kulang ka sa Pansin

Hindi mo mapigilan ang sarili mo na mangalabit at manghingi ng pansin. Gusto mo nasayo ang atensyon ng lahat. Gustong gusto mo pag pinupuri ka ng mga tao sa paligid mo at proud ka rin kapag pinaguusapan ka nila. Ngunit naiinis ka naman kapag masama ang mga naririnig mo tungkol sayo. Wag ganon, friend.

3. Laging ikaw yung Magaling

Hindi mo maiwasang makialam sa gawain o kasuotan ng iba. Para ba’ng kaylangan mo laging magbigay ng Advise kahit hindi naman hinihingi. Sinisimulan mo ito sa pag sabi ng “Dapat kase-“. Ibibida mo sa kanila na mas magaling ka sa mga bagay na ginagawa nila. Hindi naman nila kailangan yung opinyon mo pero sasabihin mo parin syempre. Bakit nga naman hindi? Pabibo ka e.

4. Mali ang Timing mo

Mali ang tiyempo mo sa lahat ng bagay. Mali ang timing mo ng biro, mali ang timing mo ng pangungulit, at mali ang timing mo magpa-pabida. Hindi mo iniisip kung ano ang kasalukuyang nararamdaman o iniisip ng taong mabibiktima mo. May pagkakataong sasabog ang taong ito sa galit ngunit dahil mas propesyonal siya kaysa sayo, mananahimik nalang siya kaysa makulong sa pagsakal sayo.

5. Akala mo ikaw lang ang Tao sa Mundo

Alam mo naman talagang hindi mo kailangang tumawa ng malakas o mag-react ng sobra ngunit dahil gusto mo rin malaman kung lilingunin ka nila, mag o-overreact ka. Tuwang-tuwa ka naman dahil sa muli ay napalalunan mo nanaman ang pansin nila. Wag mong gawin yan parati dahil pag nagkaroon ng araw na biglang walang pumansin sa’yo, promise magmumukha kang t@#6a.

8272eff021336c1ab5c9941251ee3d4eed1cc65e5d4952c3a7ca2538ebb9d376.jpg

6. Sayo ang Huling Salita

EDI IKAW NA! Hindi mo maiwasang ibida ang kwento mo sa kwento ng iba. At syempre umaasa kang makatanggap din iyon ng parehas na dami ng atensyon. Sisimulan mo ito sa pagsabi ng “Ako nga e-” na sinusundan ng kwento mong mas kamangha-mangha kaysa kwento nya. At bago matapos ang isang kwento, gusto mo opinion mo ang tatapos. Oras nila yun para magpa-bida, wag kang ano.

7. Hindi ka nagpapahuli

Hindi mo hinahayaan ang sarili mong maging huli sa isang bagay o pangyayari. Kahit hindi naman kailangang nandoon ka, isisingit mo ang sarili mo, mai-sali ka lang. Nandoon ang pagnanais mong mapabilang sa lahat ng bagay na ginagawa ng mga kasamahan mo. At pakiramdam mo hindi ka nila gusto at napagkakaisahan ka kapag napapag-iwanan ka. Maaaring tama ka.

8. Nagiinarte ka

Nagiinarte ka ng wala sa lugar. Whether maarte ka lang talaga or kunwari lang. Maaaring hindi mo talaga gusto ang isang bagay ngunit hindi ito dahilan upang mag inarte ka ng sobra. Tandaan, bata lang ang nagta-tantrums sa tuwing hindi niya nakukuha ang gusto niya. Ang mas lalong nakakainis sa mga nag-iinarte ay yung mukha nila. Hindi ko rin alam pero para bang ansarap manakit. Hindi ka na bata.

9. Nagpapa-lakas ka sa isang Tao

Mayroon kang lihim na motibo upang makuha ang gusto mo kaya’t hindi mo na rin namamalayang may naaapakan kang iba. Nagiging pabibo ka na kapag ginagawa mo na ito ng madalas kahit wala namang mas malalim na dhilan o pakinabang. Wala lang, gusto mo lang magpalakas para ikaw yung mas mapansin at mas may pagkakataong magpasikat upang mas umangat.

703ce4c06a9e78dda5dab7ae484cc0c2--filipino-humor-hugot-quotes

10. Naka-focus ang Kwento mo sa mga Bagay na Magaganda

Kapag nagkwento ka, walang pangit. Puro achievements, magagandang ala-ala, mga masasayang bakasyon, mga mamahaling kagamitan, etc. Walang pangit. Puro good stuff lang dahil natatakot ka na kapag nalaman nila ang madilim na parte ng buhay mo ay lalayuan ka na nila at hindi mo na makukuha yung daily dossage mo ng pansin na binibigay nila sayo. Alam mo kung bakit? Kasi Pabibo ka.

Kaya’t wag kang pabibo. Sinasabi ko sa’yo ito hindi dahil pabibo ako, kundi  dahil nag-aalala ako sa ginagawa mo. Hanggat maaga pa ay bawasan mo ang pagiging atribida. Wag kang kang Jollibee.

DEAD INSIDE: You killed your own feelings

society.jpg

Living is a crime where everyone is both a murderer and a victim.

We wake up each day hoping this day would be different from yesterday while others just got tired of hoping and end up killing themselves, at least on the inside. As a result, these people easily feel physically tired, lose focus, irritated, and depressed. One or two of your friends are like this, or it could be you.

What caused you to kill your humanity? You can say “I’M DEAD INSIDE” when you’re too fed up with things that always happen to your life that you just chose not to feel anything in order to make it through the day. Even if you tried so much to change it but nothing happens. It’s like you’re a robot or the human manifestation Squidward after everything that keeps on coming and stabs you in the heart.

There are three common causes that could force you to kill your own ability to feel:

work

Cause of Death: Workload

The first DEAD INSIDE reason we have is work overload or job description. When you’re not happy with your current job like you used to, you slowly lose passion for your work. You begin to feel lazy to wake up to go to work even if you know it’s your only source of income. Meanwhile, some job could really kill a person’s ability to feel; for example, if it involves hurting people in either physically or mentally like the person whose job is to squeeze the syringe in an execution chamber. That’s heavy load of emotion you would have to bear to the point that you have to be heartless in order to fulfill the job.

love

 

Cause of Death: People and relationship

One of the most common DEAD INSIDE reason is the relationship. This happens when your love life is slowly fading but it happened to you already too many times ago so you just get on with it. This also happens to people on single status, they gave up wishing for someone to come and love them loyally and unconditionally. I don’t know, maybe some people are just unlucky with finding a perfect partner.

The society could also make you say “…I’m DEAD INSIDE anyway”. You’re tired of the people around you making the same mistakes, doing same stupidity, and sometimes even involving you without your knowledge. Taking the blame is becoming a hobby for you, you’re suited for the risk because you can’t feel the pressure of burden anymore.

Some people are so heartless, they would push you to the limit that you might think that removing your ability to feel is the only way to keep on maintaining the connection with them. When you’re a family member, or an employee, or a member of a group, you can’t just simply leave so you accept the fact that they would pierce you with their painful words and carry it until you feel numb.

life

Cause of Death: Information

You thought there’s no pressure of knowing a lot? Well, you’re wrong. Imagine if you love your partner so badly that when you think he/she is cheating, you decided to see it for yourself. But by the time you arrive on the scene, are you actually prepared to know the truth?

There’s a reason why some things are not meant to be learned. Sensitive information of people, especially when you’re too powerless to cause a significant change, is better to keep in yourself until such time you gained that power to act. The amount of information and truth is too heavy that you just chose to keep it, hoping you’d forget it one day. But you have to be careful too because some things are not meant to be changed. Sometimes, you have no choice but to be a bystander.

You’re a human but you already lost your humanity.

Exif_JPEG_420

We kill our own humanity because we lose faith in everything that’s been happening to us almost on a daily basis. The pressure is too heavy that the only way to get through it is to teach ourselves to endure it. We thought killing our feelings would be the best solution because feelings only cause hindrances to our daily productivity. Some people embraced the fact that they are a victim of authority, and you can’t always change it.

My Personal Thoughts about Lying

Somebody asked me today: “How’d you do it?”

After I told her, I am the man of my words and I never lie.

Apparently, lying is a big deal for everyone. It gives a great impact to any form of community, leaves a dent on bonds, and could even kill anybody. I just thought that whoever thought the word, he chose to use 3 letters to describe it, like the word sin and bad. Also tells us that the word must not be as powerful as words with 4 or more letters like love and trust.

If you’re the type of person who Googles everything, Lying is an intentional false statement; Used with reference to a situation involving deception or founded on a mistaken impression. What caught my attention is how Google placed the definition as only second to it’s other meaning ‘to remain or rest in a flat surface or position’. I guess, even Google doesn’t prioritise unpleasant words. And when you ask somebody to what is a lie? They would, undoubtedly, define the unpleasant meaning.

So how did I do it? How can you end a day without even making a single lie?

Lying and Age

Whether we like it or not, we all lied in some points of our lives. Some people are still lying even now they’re old. For me, lying is only for kids. Those days when your parents, teachers, and churches have done their part of explaining that lying is wrong, yet we chose to use it because it’s fun and that’s how we look to be more superior than other kids. Lying is a kid’s way to be noticed. And behind those Liars go to hell sayings, we still lie because we know very well that we can still say sorry later.

Lying and it’s reasons

Why did you lie?

You lie because you thought it can fix a problem you did for the meantime. Coz you thought if you say sorry, you’ll still get punished in various ways. So why not lie and let them think everything’s okay? You thought you’ll just gonna fix it later when they’re not around.

You lied because it’s hard to choose between needs and wants. Be it something or a person, you lied because you thought you can still choose later when you’re ready to let go the other. To things, it won’t take long. To person, it would be as long as the time you rendered moving on if you’re sincere enough.

You lied because you’re hiding something. Whatever it is that you so much protected because of whatever reason, you don’t want somebody else to know. You lied to keep them or yourself away fro harm’s way, where in fact, you are already making things worst for yourself and to them.

To sum it all up, you use lies for temporary remedies. You chose a temporary remedy that results to lifetime pain, than a temporary pain that offers a lifetime remedy.

Lying and it’s relevance to people

Lying is as complex as The Principles of Understanding Women Vol.87 if such a book exist. We condemn it but we have restrictions as to how to lie for national security. We lie to avoid mass hysteria, to keep the upper hand advantage against enemies of the state, and to remain the peace talks between rivals. No matter how patriotic they sound, it’s a lie.

Lying is a job for some people. When pretending to be someone else that is in good shape like telling your customer you’re willing to help and very happy to serve in phone, where in truth and in fact, you have cursed him dozens of times as you fake your smile, you are already lying. You’re being paid to lie.

White lies is what we call to a lie that benefits us. But that’s no different with Robin hood who steals from the rich and gave it to the poor. No matter how much you look at it, it’s still a lie.

Truth and it’s first victim

Lying is an essential part of a person. It’s what completes us and could be the reason why we sacrifice ourselves to save the other from severe emotional pain. Sometimes, it’s easy not to talk than telling them know the truth.

To be honest, being a totally honest person is not entirely good. If you want to be totally honest, some parts of your emotions must die first. The feeling of guilt, urge to sacrifice, and sympathy… All three of them will disappear forever. That’s the consequence honest.

The moment when telling the truth might hurt anyone is always present. Because you can’t be honest if you hide the truth behind words.

I chose to be Painfully Honest, than making Sugarcoated Lies.

How suspension affects you as a student

This is something everyone would definitely relate into this rainy season…

We are all once a student who would somehow, in one point, wishes the faculty to suspend classes even just for a day. And some of us doesn’t realize what happens if school work is delayed for a day, and this is that kind of regret.

-What happens if classes were suspended in day?

20376196_940774476054720_972606209013384891_n.jpg

Here in Philippines, where pacific typhoons seemingly tests their strength before going to Asian storm rampage, most of the students will always be so delighted whenever classes are suspended because of the strong rain. And who doesn’t? I mean, no classes means no lesson stress, no traffic haggardness, no quizzes, no recitations, lesser school days in a week, more time to hangout with your friends, more time to play games, more time to sleep, and just about everything that you can only do on weekends. We will disregard the affects of typhoon and other omnipotent force to the general population for now.

If there is something that a hard-working student would understand when classes are suspended is the fact that suspensions doesn’t stop the time. Meaning, it doesn’t really delay the deadlines.

An additional free day will allow you to finish the assignments you so planned to do when you reach the school early because copying homework doesn’t really guarantee your classmate’s answers to be correct, but sharing the punishment with a friend is better than to be punished alone for not doing the assignment.

Small school stuff like assignments are okay if delayed, but what about the others like group projects, field activities, school presentations…things that will give an impact to your grades if you’re the type of student who’s not good in academics and only excel with extracurricular activities? If your teachers would be considerate, you’re very lucky if deadlines were postponed.

Class suspension also means postponed lesson. Teachers already created a lesson plan for the whole week, but it’s not really your problem as a student, right? WRONG!!! Teachers based their lessons from your textbook and your books are sufficient enough to teach you everything you need to know based on your current grade. Let’s say you have 500 school days per year and your book also happens to have 500 lessons or so, do you think those lessons at the far end of the book that you didn’t learned means nothing? You just missed the lessons, Einstein.

With suspended classes, you just missed your chance to prove yourself as a student. Everyday is a moment for you to impress your teachers that you might not be as good as top students but showing up in the classroom means you’re trying. I’m not lying to you but there are students that pass the subject only by perfect attendance.

I’m not the type of student that excel in academic stuff too, but there are times when I feel like to listen or excited to learn the next lesson at least. You know, when you wake up and remembered the next lesson is something you’re really interested into then *poof* Classes suspended! Maybe today is just meant for you to sleep all day.

Unfair nga naman

Teka lang! Bago mo ko awayin sa comments section, gusto kong sabihin sa’yo na babae din ako at ang blog na ito ay hango lamang sa sa isang taong nakapanayam ko sa isang makabuluhan at madugong talakayan matapos ang pang-apat na bote.

vi-sao-chong-khong-muon-ve-nha2

Heart broken ang siya at naisipang gawin kaming toilet matapos silang maghiwalay ng kanyang sintang-mahal. Sinalo namin ang sama ng loob niya buong gabi. Alam naman niyang kasalanan niya at siya rin daw ang unang umamin sa girlfriend niya na mayroon siyang iba dahil nakasanayan na niyang magsabi ng totoo.

Halos lahat ng lalakeng kaibigan namin nung oras na iyon ay nagsabing isa siyang magiting na boyfriend dahil malakas ang loob niya na aminin yon. Samantalang lahat naman ng kababaihan (kasama ako) ay nag-suggest na bakit hindi pa siya magbigti sa ilalim ng katabi naming puno ng mangga? Na-triggered ang mga lola nyo. Bakit daw may mga lalaking naghahanap parin ng iba kahit may girlfriend na. At dito na, mga kaibigan, naging makabuluhan ang diskusyunan. Ipinaliwanag na ni heart-broken-man na itatago natin sa tawag na “kuya sawi” kung bakit siya naghanap ng iba:

Sa anim na taon ng pagiging magkaibigan namin ni Kuya Sawi, nakita ko kung gaano niya kamahal ang girlfriend nyang tatawagin nating “Ate Bato” dahil matapos mo mabasa ang paliwanag niya, baka maisip mong kulang pa yang katawagang iyan para sa kanya. “Unfair” yan ang naging ugat nga kanyag paliwanag.

“Ang unfair lang kasi bago kami nagsimula sa relationship na’to, nangako kami sa isa’t-sa na gagawin ang lahat para mapasaya ang bawat isa.” – Naging mabuti siyang boyfriend ngunit si Ate Bato walang ginawa kundi magpa-cute upang mapalampas ni Kuya Sawi ang pagiging parasyte ni Ate Bato. Lugi nga naman.

“Noong sinabi niyang tigilan ko ang lahat ng luho ko; Paninigarilyo, Dota, monthly beer session with friends, gala, at pagbili ng mga kailangan ko online, ginawa ko. Pero noong pinangako niya na mageexcercise siya para masuot yung binili kong dress para sa kanya tatlong taon na pero wala parin.” – Di madaling bitawan ang mga bagay na nagtatanggal ng stress mo. Sana nga naman hindi nalang ipinangakong magpapa-payat diba?

“Marami siyang gusto sa buhay ngunit nagrereklamo siya pag nahihirapan siyang abutin yon.” – Naiintindihan ko ang isang ito. Usong-uso kasi ngayon sa mga nagtatrabaho ang magreklamo sa Facebook tungkol sa hirap ng trabaho. Pero pag wala namang trabaho, nagrereklamo parin dahil walang pang gastos at di makahanap ng kumpanyang mapagta-trabahuan.

“Kapag gusto niyang makibag-break sakin, nagsosorry ako at pilit na inaayos ang lahat. Pero pag ako na ang napupuno at minsan hindi sinasadyang nababanggit na ayoko na, mabilis niyang ina-accept na maghiwalay na kami.” – Ang galing galing nating mga girls diba? Alam kasi natin na masasaktan siya pag sumang-ayon tayo kagad kasi akala natin nanakot siya. Di natin alam na lalo lang natin dinadagdagan ang sakit sa puso niya. Bakit di natin subukas mag-sorry din?

I hate to admit pero may point si Kuya Sawi. Pero mali yung ginawa niya na humanap ng iba dahil kung pagod na siya, sana tinapos nalang muna niya yung current relationship niya kaysa pagsabayin and dalawang babae. Ngunit kung iisipn, a promise is not meant to be broken. Dahil unfair nga naman.
