New Year’s Revolution: The Revolution Begins

“It was bitter work, but the results were worth it”

After almost 2 months in the planning, finally! the Revolution begins!

New Year’s Revolution is just a crazy idea to showcased the students of the University of the Cordilleras their talents, and skills in dancing through friendly competition. This began when UC FUEGO became an official organization to this school, and has been creating programs for the benefit of the students. In the creation of this event came the very challenging times or should I say the Dark Ages of the said organi13699950_1118332228224617_7966404072415063973_nzation.

This Organization together with IT Society and the University Student Council struggled in making this event possible with a short span of preparation, they made sure that this event will push through. With only limited resources and limited time, they managed to finish their work and produced an event that will revolutionize the traditions of every competition that was created inside the university.

According to the President of Fuego the creation of the event was so chaotic that they came to a point that they want to cancel the event due to many errors, starting with the projectors, down to the sounds. But they didn’t quit under pressure and still pursue on making this event possible in which it did. 13726758_1127537390599943_7638337217424582999_n

During the event the Presidents of the 3 organizations didn’t watched the program, instead they made sure that the flow of the program goes smoothly. Even made them run around behind the scenes of the program just to make sure that their in sync because during the program they made necessary changes to the flow just to make the program much more better. It was very tiring to them considering that there were so many technical difficulties that happened during the event, but in the end everything went well. After the event was done everybody was so happy to the extent that they forget how tired and stressed they are in producing this event. Everyone had a good time especially the audience and the competitors of the said competition.

Having 5 competitors the 7 judges picked the Best Performers of the competition namely; Jizelle Sumbad for the Female category and Othniel Dela Pena for the Male category. 

the Psychotics won 4t13686489_971351389630108_5075275696740560990_nh runner up, System Reboot as the 3rd runner up, Camaraderie of Groove as the 2nd runner, Ronin as the 1st runner, and Uptick as the New Year’s Revolution 2016 Champion. The event ended with happy faces and emotional moments, the 3 organizations plan to have a sequel to the event and make another Revolution.

Congratulations to all the winners and see you all again on the next Revolution.

Tick Tok Insanity

The feeling that you have so many things to do yet you have very little time to do it. How I wish that I can control time so that I can finish anything in a blink of an eye. 

Sometimes we need “ME, MYSELF, AND I TIME” because if you neglect yourself from having a good time once in a while, then you’ll burnout. It’s not bad to take a rest and think about yourself first rather than over working yourself and being stressed all the time.

As for me I have a lot of things to do. The Silew awards application, New year’s Revolution, Research paper, Choreography, Show your choreo, DBMS, System’s Architecture, Pasiklaban practices, Practices for NYR, sponsors, judges, posters, flyers, set ups, and all other responsibilities that needs to be done in a week. I’m on a verge of burning out because I don’t have the time and luxury to relax now because of all this things in mind. In order for me to relax and enjoy my own time, I must finish all my obligations and responsibilities before I end my term as the President real-timeof my Org.

It’s very difficult but this tasks are not impossible to do, their jus
t time consuming and what I need now is an extra 2 hrs in the clock. I just wish that there is a 15:00pm in a 12hr format (if you know what I mean). Time is upon us, it is constant yet, it is not enough to finish everything that you want in a given time, Whether you planned your day or not, it still doesn’t matter because when you concentrate on something, your focus on the time will be gone and you will be surprised and say that the time runs fast.

Hopefully everything will turn out fine, I just need a little help right now because these tasks can’t be done in just one day. I want the output of my work to be great, it’s like comparing quantity over quality. I want to focus more on the quality of my work instead of how I finished my work fast. In that way the people that I want to look at my outputs will be satisfied with my work because of efficiency and quality. Same with life, you must take it nice and slow in order for you to not miss a single thing along the way.

Oh well, going back to real life again.

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.
