My internship is officially over. Oh how 240 hours flies so fast. It took me 6 weeks to accomplish my practicum and I couldn’t be any happier and thankful for how productive those 6 weeks was. It was a great experience, a learning one.
This photo somehow summarises my internship experience, minus the people who contributed a lot in this experience. I’ll definitely miss the Mcdo mornings I always have whenever I will be out client’s. I’ll miss the Sub lunches at RCBC alone. I’ll somehow miss the traffic at Ayala Ave., every morning and also how crazy it can be on rush hours every evening. I’ll also miss cross footing different financial statements. Thought it really hurts my back, I’ll also miss vouching. I’ll also miss my small desk I have to share with Ms. Jade at our office. I’ll also miss doing different memo and auditing executions. I’ll miss the free snacks I get from our clients. I’ll miss Ms. Jade’s sundae treat every after lunch. I’ll miss the cold client’s office. I’ll miss the teasing and laughter of Ms. Abby, Kuya Mark and the rest of the OS people. I’ll miss the very considerate Ms. Jade and Ms. Marga. I’ll miss spending time with Ms. Jade as she talk about her plans. I’ll also miss the bully Ms. Jessica. I’ll also miss the both stressful and chill Ms. Vanj. I’ll also miss the Starbucks and Krispy Kreme from every corner of Ayala Ave., Though I don’t know if I’d really miss this, but I’ll also miss everyday fast food. I’ll also miss the everyday patintero at Buendia. There’s so many things to miss. And I’ll look forward experiencing them again.
This internship taught me a lot. New experiences. It taught me to become better and be responsible. It gave me new friends. It helped me become a better person. Oh internship, I glad I’m done, but I’ll miss everyone, and everything about it for sure. Through this I felt like I was able to have a productive summer. It may not be a vacation, but it sure fits the perfect time I could ever spent this summer vacation. I’m really thankful for everything that happened. Thank you, Lord!

Oh sucks. I feel guilty for this one. I ain’t going to vote today because I wasn’t able to make it during the registration period. And therefore, I do not have the right to complain whatever happens after this election. But since everyone’s just electing their candidates, I suppose I can still share my thoughts and opinions about this election 2013.
I am against political dynasty. Sucks how it’s accepted in the Philippines. It’s as if they’re all hungry for money. They want to manipulate the Philippines. And sucks how the Filipino people doesn’t benefit from them but rather only the family of these politicians gain wealth, fame power. I am also annoyed when these aspiring politicians says, “I am here for public service.” Because I strongly believe that if you’re true intention is to serve the citizens of the Philippines then you can do so in your own ways. You can create an organization that will aid the needs of the poor or perhaps be an advocate of a certain belief. There are so many things you can do for the public if that’s your calling. I also hate aspiring politicians who are either in the filed of entertainment or do not really have an experience or knowledge about legislative matters. I also hate when previous politicians run for a local position after their term has expired in their national position. Hungry for money? Hungry for power? And lastly, I hate the current leaders who would start a certain project but then left it open handed because they ran out of funds.
For my next leader, I want him to be truthful to his promises. I want his words to be backed up with facts and proofs of his accomplishments. I want him to stand on his beliefs and not be swayed away by what most people push him to do. I want him to be honest with his Income Tax Return before he enter the cruel world of politics and if by chance his income increases the year after, I want him to honest with his SALN. I want him not to be corrupt and use his pork barrel properly. I want him to be honest to the Filipino citizens; admit his mistakes and do everything he can to fulfil the platform he said during his campaign. And lastly, I want him to be down to earth, God fearing and prioritize the immediate needs of this country; less inflation rate, more labor for the people and foods for the table.
Vote wise fellow Filipino citizens. I know one vote could change, but if that one vote is not for a deserving person, then it will go to waste. Be the change you wish to be.
