“Uy Igo, saan naman punta mo?”

“CR lang, bro.”

Nagmamadali akong pumunta sa CR, dahil kaunti na lang, sasabog na talaga ‘yong pantog ko. Nagkataon naman ay nakasarado ito kaya napilitan akong dumiretso sa Varsity CR.

Juminggle ako ng bongga. Nailabas ko na yata lahat ng tubig sa aking goddess body.

Pagkatapos, narealize ko oily na ang feslak ko. Kaloka! Mukhang gurangers na fezz ko. Pano na pogi este ganda points ko sa aking papable-team mates. Hay… Naalala ko tuloy ang aking heavenly moments tuwing naliligo kaming magkakasama.

Feature: Pricila Aquino: Star Swimmer, Record Breaker

7/27/2013 07:14:00 PM Media Center 0 Comments

There are three things that help Pricilia Aquino to succeed in her swimming career – inspiration, motivation and dedication.

Pricila, who has broken several records in the Girls Division of University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP) Swimming competition, says that being an athlete is important to her that’s why she does everything to excel in her sport.

Her family, friends, coaches and teammates are the people who inspire her to do her best. In every competition, Pricila’s dad is always present to support and cheer for her. Sometimes he would tell her, “Pri, bumabagal ka na.” Although this adds pressure, it keeps her motivated because she knows that win or lose, he is always proud of her.

Pricila also feels proud of having a sister who is also a swimmer. “Wala akong excuse na hindi ko kaya gawin ang best ko dahil napagdaanan niya na ang lahat,” said Pricila in an interview.

“Maganda siyang ehemplo kasi kahit na malaki yung agwat niya sa teammates niya, humble pa rin siya," Luis Perez, the UPISVST Team Captain, shared in an interview,

Pricila is currently a 3rd year high school student and when asked about her experience, “ Ang hirap ng Grade 9! Grabe!” But this challenges her to be more responsible. After training, she heads home to do all her requirements. Time management is very important to student-athletes like her so she uses a handy organizer to take note of her schedule and prioritize activities.

Pricila Aquino follows a strict training regimen for continued
success in her swimming career.
She has to juggle tons of schoolwork and regular training and preparation for the upcoming UAAP games. From Monday to Sunday, she trains very hard to defend her title as the Most Valuable Player (MVP) for the girls. She trains at the Celebrity Sports Club with the help of her coach, Dennis Cordero. Her specialty is I.M. or Individual Medley, long distance.

Aside from inter-school and national competitions, Pricila also receives invitations to compete in international meets in Hongkong, Brunei, and Thailand, among others, every year.

With the current UAAP season underway, Pricila has this to say, “Good luck sa lahat ng teams na magkokompete! Galingan niyo. Don’t forget to pray. And do it for UPIS!" / by Anne Avendaño



Music: The Family Jewels by Marina and the Diamonds

7/27/2013 07:11:00 PM Media Center 1 Comments

“I feel like I’m the worst so I always act like I’m the best!” – Oh No!

We often categorize life as something really challenging and largely confusing. Often, we have a hard time translating what we think of the world into words. Luckily, Marina and the Diamonds is there to help us out.

Marina and the Diamonds, also known as Marina Diamandis, is a Welsh singer and songwriter. Her first album is The Family Jewels, released February 2010.

When Marina was asked about this, she explained, “(It’s) a body of work largely inspired by the seduction of commercialism, modern social values and female sexuality.” And with her songs like: Girls, Oh No!, Obsessions, Hollywood and I am Not a Robot, she’s obviously not lying.

Hugh Montgomery of Q Magazine noted that her musical style ranged from, “glam-disco ('Shampain') and bubblegum punk ('Girls') to quavering piano laments ('Obsessions') and cabaret ditties ('Hermit The Frog').” Others may classify Marina’s style as “really weird” but Marina admits her album is mostly composed of a lot of experimental stuff. “It's basically an album about what not to be,” she said in an interview.

UPIS and Marina

A few students were asked about what they thought regarding Marina and her album. A number said that The Family Jewels, despite being her first album, was a very good one.

"Exceptional and unique," Jibreel Fernandez of 10-Narra said. Bea Cao of the same section also said that, "Kahit 'yon ang first album niya napapakita pa rin talent niya as much as the second."

Other students say they prefer The Family Jewels over her second album Electra Heart, "I like The Family Jewels better because it contains songs about life instead of just love songs," Claire Diaz of 10 -Ipil said.

Although the students have different opinions, they all agree that Marina and the Diamonds is an artist worth listening to. / by Red Rivera

Feature: Monsters University

7/11/2013 08:10:00 PM Media Center 0 Comments

Are you looking for a light but memorable movie? Well, Monsters University is the right one for you.

This movie is not just for kids. It might be animated but the whole family, even teenagers, can also watch and appreciate it.

It’s packed with fun but is also filled with life lessons and issues which viewers of all ages can easily relate to.

The movie is like a guide to surviving school. It shows techniques on how to excel or do well in academics. It also teaches them how to socialize with other students and adjust to different personalities. Be prepared, too, to feel the joys of being a student and the desperation brought about by failure and rejection.

Monsters University can be inspiring and motivating for teens. It is truly enjoyable and definitely a must-watch. / by Melanie Bravo and Knika Cornejo



K-2 launches new programs

7/11/2013 08:07:00 PM Media Center 0 Comments

The Waste Management Program and the Disciplinary Program proposed by the K-2 faculty members are now being implemented at the K-2 building.

The Waste Management Program’s goal is to help the environment by reducing trash. As part of the program, the faculty members decided to set certain bins for each kind of trash for easy assortment. This includes cans for white and colored paper, carton, plastic, and food waste.

Another purpose of the said program is to help and appreciate the custodians. The biodegradable wastes would be sold to trash collectors and the money accumulated will be given to the school workers.

On the other hand, the Disciplinary Program aims to teach students proper conduct, even at their very young age. The K-2 teachers want to show that UPIS students are not only smart but also disciplined and responsible.

For example, footstep marks painted on the floor guide students to keep right, and posters on the walls remind students to behave properly.

The UPIS K-2 faculty will be watching and guiding the students and they will be hoping these programs will not only apply in school, but also in every aspect of life. / by Melanie Bravo and Knika Cornejo

Pagkumpiska ng ID, pansamantalang itinigil

7/11/2013 08:03:00 PM Media Center 0 Comments

Simula noong Martes, Hulyo 9, pansamantalang itinigil ng Kamag-Aral 3-10 (KA) ang pagkumpiska sa mga ID ng mga estudyanteng nahuhuli sa flag ceremony.

Dahil sa lumalaking bilang ng mga estudyanteng hindi dumadating sa oras ng flag ceremony, ipinatupad ng KA ang pagkumpiska ng mga ID nila simula noong Hunyo 25. Ayon sa pamunuan, isususpindi muna ang patakarang ito upang ayusin ang sistema ng pagpapatupad.

Ani Faye De Castro, pangulo ng KA 7-10, layunin nito na madisiplina ang mga mag-aaral sa tamang oras ng pagpasok sa paaralan. Isa rin itong paraan upang maitala at masolusyonan ang madalas na pagdating ng huli ng mga estudyante tuwing flag ceremony. Inaasahan ng KA na sa pamamagitan ng alituntuning ito ay mabawasan ang dami ng late comers. / nina Bea Cao, Joshua Paulino, at Alissa Villareal
