The bees pillage the flowers here and there but they make honey of them which is all their own; it is no longer thyme or marjolaine: so the pieces borrowed from others he will transform and mix up into a work all his own.--Michael de Montaigne

First things first, I hate plagiarists. I hate people who copy your theme from your blog. I hate people who scraps away your idea from you. I hate copycats. I hate you! bwahahaha.


When we were in first year, someone copied my movie review from me. When I passed my paper to our Class President, she took the chance and copied it word per word. I didn't know about it first, but then our Professor noticed that we have the same work and impossible as it may seem, when she compared both articles, they were indeed plagiarized. Of course, I tried to explain my side, and fortunately, all my friends and our Class President proved that it is mine. As for her, she got sanctioned for it.

I think its not wrong to have the same ideas. But if you copy them to the same format, I think it is so wrong. Your credibility will be damaged, and people will think that you don't have your own style. And that is just a pity and plain stupid.

After four years in Journalism, we have encountered these things. I'm just surprised that some people are reckless enough to do them. Word of advice, pounce your little brain a little more so your own thoughts could come. After all, who expects you to be so damn good in writing anyway?


As for the good news, drought is finally over. Rain has finally landed to Manila. There's no more use for cloud seeding anymore. Bad news is we now have to deal with floods and all else that came with it. But I'm not really complaining, downsides are just downsides.


Anyhow, I'm helping a friend's blog. Please vote for this to this Blogger's Choice AWARD. Just that this person made it possible for me to change my layout at Blogspot and I want to help her in any way possible. And let's do it for Hello Kitty's sake. hehehe.

I didn't attend the ICAM Alumni Homecoming last Sunday. I actually forgot about it, but then I was at Nova that time and its a Sunday. I just hope that our batch didn't participate much or I would think I missed out something huge. Oh well, I guess I have to make up for 2011 at UST to celebrate the 400th year and being the Oldest, Pontifical, Royal and Catholic University of the Philippines. I so love my Alma Mater.

Its going to ba a va-cay on the next two Mondays 20th and 27th. Am actually thinking what I should do on those days. And because I am having my birthday countdown, its gonna 28 days before that day itself. Therefore, I have lots of time to do outrageous things before I turn 22. I don't know, its just that 21 is a nice number for me and I hate to leave it just like that. It was also one of the best years of my life so I hate to say goodbye just like that. Okay, I think I'm gonna cry. j/k! :D

Gotta go. pm if necessary.
