Hey guys! I met my high school friends yesterday to celebrate Wash’s 17th birthday! It was really great seeing them again. We shared our college tales and laughed like old times. Being with them makes me feel like I’m still in high school. We watched Man of Steel too! It wasn’t as good as I expected from the trailer and the loads of advertisement being shown for it. The scenes were quite messy and the dialogue was plain. Nothing stood out except for the CGI, I guess.
Anyway, I’m really happy! I love them lots, and I can’t wait for Petreen’s birthday celebration on (pending) July 6! Weeee♥
Some of them are developing vomit habits for some unknown reason. I guess they’re adjusting to the college stress? Eating problems maybe? Hope they get well soon, though.
On a different note, our table reunion might be moved to the 29th since a friend of ours will have some college activity to attend to on the 22nd. Also, we will be able to watch Monsters University if we go with the 29th!
Since we moved the date, however, this means that I have no excuse not to go to the seminar in my dad’s office. The speaker will be the same one who spoke during the meeting last May, so I’m not looking forward to it. The reason for this second gathering is because last time, we were separated into two groups, and each group had a task to accomplish. After a month, we will have to present our analysis and explain it in front of the rest of them (aka this Saturday).
I mentioned something above about disliking the speaker, right? Well, perhaps it has something to do with age because they feel that being older equates to being wiser. I, on the other hand, beg to differ. He should learn to step down from his high horse and adapt to the modern lifestyle and terminologies. He keeps on repeating how the new generation uses a lot of jargon and other fancy terms for things that could be simplified. Although this may contain some truth in it, I think that people sometimes prefer using these jargon and terms so they could communicate with others more efficiently. It’s like saying “why use aqua blue when you can just say blue?”
For an art student like me, each color is important. You can’t just say you used blue to color the sky. There are several shades evident in coloring to add depth. If you were to stick to his logic of simplifying everything, you’d end up with a mess.
In addition, his overall message has no uniqueness to it. It’s similar to all the other speeches I’ve heard in the other talks I’ve attended. With the abundance of quotes and articles in the internet, it isn’t hard to read something that will generally give the same idea as them. What I think is important, therefore, is the way the speaker is able to send that lesson to his audience…and honestly, I don’t think he has that impact. He’s too focused on his central idea of what he thinks is best that he fails to realize the concept of change. Although he speaks of change, he does not adapt this. True, he may be a professional with the diploma, certificate, approval seal, or whatever has been given to him, but just as he said, those are simply titles. Those titles do not measure your ability. He can’t act superior because he has a teaching degree. He should share his message in a way that shows sincerity in helping the second generation–not for the sake of letting them know how smart he is or how much he knows about the company.
Okay, I’m losing track of this entry’s main purpose. I might blog about fathers day some other time. Whoops.
