  1. Zoning Out

    by , 10-27-2014 at 04:37 PM (Memoirs of an Amnesiac)
    Having taught for almost a decade, I have a fair glimpse of almost every kind of personality that comes in and out of my classroom. Modern psychology has acquiesced to what leading psychologists have categorized students with.

    During my student days, there were only two kinds of students: those who are "bugoys (the naughty ones)" and the "buotans (goody-two-shoes)". It was imperative that if you don't want to be in the first category, you have to behave so much so ...
  2. Falling In Love with Subtitles

    by , 07-29-2014 at 04:04 PM (Memoirs of an Amnesiac)
    "Ma-Anhing 'Kag Sayo" (You'll soon depart from the face of this earth). This was my friend's pun about the Korean way of greeting (an yung hoseyo).

    It used to be that I hated Korean novelas. They are difficult to read and understand. What with all the subtitles and all the ways they've been custom-fit to be understood by Filipino viewers. The actors' mouths don't seem to match their dialogues and my, they speak Tagalog so much better than we do, don't you think? It was when ...
  3. Seeing a Ghost

    by , 07-29-2014 at 03:22 PM (Memoirs of an Amnesiac)
    A rather radical friend of mine had only one thing in mind. If he could in his human powers (if ever there is one), summon a ghost to appear right in front of him, then he would give up everything he has. While most of us would even cringe, have goosebumps or nerves that wouldn't stop standing on ends at the thought of a ghost, there he was inviting principalities that he didn't care would even welcome his paranormal invitation.

    I've had my own share of fright and incomprehensible fears ...
  4. The First Time

    by , 05-31-2014 at 11:23 PM (Memoirs of an Amnesiac)
    When I was young, there is only one thing that motivated me about the opening of classes. Those are the new school things my parents would buy me. In my little innocent and naive heart, the smell of new pads of paper, the factory scent of cheap bags and shoes, plus newly sewn uniforms resembled that of one drug addict's reaction to "fly high" (I can only surmise because I swear I've never even tried sniffing nor taking any prohibited drugs. Well, maybe rugby, but I don't smell it when ...
  5. When You Love A Woman

    by , 05-26-2014 at 10:56 PM (Memoirs of an Amnesiac)
    I would often hear people say that "Behind every man's success (or failure) is a woman. All over history, we can always glean on personages who are either influenced or disturbed by a woman, causing them to succeed triumphantly or to fail tragically.

    It is inarguable therefore that despite women's quirkiness, men are in fact bound to get attracted to them. In the writing parlance, this is often referred to as the "femme fatale" or (as wikipedia puts it) women's seductive ...

  6. Glued to the Tube

    by , 04-29-2014 at 12:04 AM (Memoirs of an Amnesiac)
    According to a local research, children in the younger years (say like 4 years old and below) who are frequently exposed to TV at such ages are likely to develop speech problems. I don't know whether this research is conclusive and comprehensive for this matter but I do agree that exposing oneself to the tube especially when one has not formed judgment faculties in the brain (being immature and young with a sponge-like brain) may hold true. The brain is such a complex organ that anything (as in ...

  7. The Way You Make Me Feel

    by , 04-28-2014 at 11:19 PM (Memoirs of an Amnesiac)
    Whoever was it who said that even when one reaches 90, in some instances in one's life, one never loses his/her being 12, 18, 20 (and so on and so forth) may have been right.

    My significant other often jests about how childish I could be when I stare like a giddy starstruck fan girl of KathNiel (You know the teen age love team that's making huge crowd gathering wherever they go?). He argues that I'm too old for such things. My defense? "So what? I'm acting my age now. My 16 year-old ...
