New Year’s Revolution: Genesis (The Making)

I know it’s already June but there’s no such thing as an “old year”, not unless it is before 2016.

After almost 1 month of processing, finally it’s already on the go. This was just a CRAZY IDEA made for the students of the University of the Cordilleras, and was made real with the help of the USC and IT Society.

I’m so excited because finally my crazy idea will come to life, just like my 1st idea of creating a dance workshop for the students of UC. Now, the moment that I’ve been waiting for is coming fast. Hopefully everything will be alright and successful.

The date is set for the competitibegin_processon. On July 16, 2016, the 26th year anniversary of the biggest earthquake that hit Baguio City back in 1990. We will know who will start the Revolution in UC. A Revolution of it’s students, a change in culture, a change in attitude, and a change that will make UC be known for it’s extraordinary students with unique, and astonishing talents.

We still have a lot to take care of and hopefully everything will be fine. I believe that this event will be successful because of the hard work and dedication of my active members, USC, IT Society, and volunteers in order for this event to push through. We’re already around 60% in the process and I believe that it will be 150% during the event ( I hope so ).

Don’t be afraid of letting your ideas be heard, because you’ll never know the great impact of an idea once it is already been made. Creation came from an idea so don’t underestimate the power of the mind. Think of an idea now but create it tomorrow for the development of the future.

Why hate Lebron?

I’ve been watching the NBA since I was a kid when Jordan won 6 championships, and when Kobe and Shaq dominated the sport. I also watched how the Sacramento Kings got robbed, and the time when Tim Duncan won his Championship. I’ve watched the Boston Celtics won the championship vs the Lakers. I watched how the Dallas Mavericks lost to the Heat back in 2006 then came back to Win it back in 2011. Then I’ve watched how the Spurs dominated the Heat and how Steph Curry became the MVP and won the Championship last year. Now this year the Cleveland Cavaliers won it all, and with Lebron James as the Finals MVP.

To be honest. Ever since Lebron James went to the Miami Heat. I started to hate him because of his arrogance and because he self proclaimed that he is “KING JAMES”. Yes he is a dominant in the sport but his arrogance is really massive that’s why many people really hate Lebron, not only that, he is also a master of flopping. Imagine a big guy like him flopping just to get a foul is a poor way of being great. I hated him because of that, that’s why I want the Dallas Mavericks to win and then I was very happy when he lost especially when they lost to the Spurs. He has no excuse and keeps on whining for his mistakes. During last year vs the Golden State Warriors I was kinda hoping that Lebron would prove that he is the greatest player in the world without any help from Kyrie and Kevin because if he won the championship all by himself I would be convinced that he is the greatest player in the world just like he claimed during an interview. But I was disappointed and at the same time happy because I think he deserved that lost so that his arrogance will go straight to his face.ap_649535383326-cropped

Now that the Cleveland Cavaliers won the Championship for the 1st time I thought I was going to be mad because of Lebron’s arrogance. But when Lebron cried, I realized that he gave his heart and soul to the game. I know his arrogant but when you look at his stats he is leading all categories and will make you think that he really does deserve the finals MVP award and that his team deserves to win it all. I’ve gained a lot of respect to him because of his determination and passion. I didn’t see the Lebron that I saw last year when he looks tired all the time and doesn’t have the mood to play. when they were down 3-1 that’s the time when I see the fire burning inside him, The determination to win just like Jordan did. Although he will never be greater than Jordan or Kobe, He will be known as the one of the Best, The Magic Johnson of this era.

I was suppose to be bitter because of the lost of the Warriors but it’s funny, because I’m happy for Lebron to achieve his goal and his promise to Cleveland.
it goes to show that with hardwork, teamwork, and dedication to your craft, you will achieve anything.

Dance for PASSION and not for fame

 

Dancing is an ART not a TOOL for fame.

If your purpose is to gain popularity through dancing then you’ll fail.

Dance for passion and not for fame is not just a statement, but for me it is a principle that I follow. I want to improve my skills not to prove that I’m strong, but I’m doing it because I love to do it. It is a freedom of expression where you can be who you are and nobody can judge you. It has different styles based on the person’s preference, and  different genres to choose from. Having said all that I believe that no matter how good you are, no image-contactsmatter how difficult your choreography is, if you don’t put your heart and soul into your work, then your dance is just like a steak with no flavor in it. It may look good but if you don’t feel the dancer’s heart then the appreciation is gone.

I’ve met a lot of dancers in my time with the community. I’ve learned that the most humble persons in the dance community are the ones who actually “MADE IT” and the ones that doesn’t are the ones who are very arrogant. From that little research that I made, I now realize the concept of ATTITUDE = 100%.  I now fully understand that the arrogant people in the community are just improving their skills but never reached success because of their attitude. The people that desire to improve their skills just to show-off, are the same people who are being “ASSKISSERS” once they’re with the strongest dancers in the community and claims that their already on their level just because of several workshops.

The knowledge that you gain from every workshop is supposed to be shared and not bragged. Every workshop you attend doesn’t just contain the choreography and the foundations of that genre, but it contains much more deeper than that. It will teach you that everything that they taught you is based on their experience and the knowledge that they’ve gained when they’re just starting. Every workshop teaches us that in order for you to become a great dancer you must work hard, take negativity as a challenge, be humble, and most importantly, put your heart into it. In that way you will improve not only your skills but also your personality.

Dance is a delicate balance between perfection and beauty.
