Re: How to Pick-up a Girl

Though my schedule-due to my job quota-is hectic, I still have ample time to read mind-tickling articles like "How to Pick-Up a Girl". Though I don't like it much but I have no choice but to read it since it is one of my sources on my writing job.

The article says that:

1. Flirt withe the girl

Well, for me flirting is not that bad but I think it undermines your/someones credibility and morality. Hey! Flirting! I don't give a damn on those things.

Flirting sometimes can also be so effective expecially when your on a bar/drinking session when the ladies are there waiting for a guy to go out with. But if your looking for a long-term healthy relationship, I think it's not a good starter and it may ruin your personality as what others see you.

Also, it stated that eye-contact is a part of a flirting process. I totally disagree with that! There are times when people cannot refrain from looking at a certain attractive individual; and it's not flirting.

In addition, not all eyes pointed at you delivers a message of admiration, sometimes it's just simply looking; and giving a meaning-flirting with you-causes you to react on an irrational manner.

Moreover, sometimes ladies look at you to confirm if you are looking at her; and your frequent glance gives them confidence and clears their negative doubts on how they look like.

2. Stay Calm - girls already know your intentions

If that's the case then for me it is purely subjectivity. But if we consider the fact that there are lady mentalist that performs mind-reading; that could be true but it's a one-in-a-million case.

For me, it's more better not to show your intentions or you don't show actions that the girl would assume that you have hidden agenda. At most, what I'm trying to say is that while you are calm, make sure that your target must have zer0-hint that about your catch.

Furthermore, if we presume that ladies already know your intentions, then you may tend to act based on what you presume. It could be either you'lle be offensive to her because on your first approach she didn't turn you down; or you may act defensively and lose the catch.

So don't assume or presume anything; be true to your mind and your actions. Act like she's just one of the girls whom you like and wanted to know about her.

General Psychology, that is Psych 23 for the psychology students of Xavier University. The subject tackles a lot of basics about psychology - history, theories, well-known psychologist and a lot more.

This is also the subject that has to be taken first before proceeding to other higher psych courses. In addition, non-xyc students is not excused from this subject.

Our Mentor
Aside from the interesting topics, out teacher Mrs. Gail - I can't remember her last name but I'm sure she has a twin sister - is such a good/excellent teacher. Though her voice is quite low sometimes but it really helps you increase focus on the topic - turn offf all the distractions, concentrate and extend your ears to get all the soundwaves. I also like her pitch during discussions because she didn't adapt - though I think she could - the American accent.

But that's not really the catch of this post!


What I've noticed since I entered college is that, I closely get attracted to ladies with exceptional intellectual capacity that can outwit my stance in class. Though I really don't know the reason behind but I know it's true. My two ex-GF are top-notchers of their class and my latest X graduated comlaude. And for that, it's hard for me to say that it's just a coincidence.

Also, I'm the kind of student who loves to be seen having a laid-back behavior; but still can get a hold of a A or B grade. I really don't want to belong to a clique close to a gay or ladies circle - more often tagged as the intellectual circle. For that, I have a hard time looking for the ideal girl for me.

The catch

On psych23, I fell inlove with a girl whose intellectual capacity is overwhelming. She is so charming and I think she's the conservative type - fits well on my taste. The problem is that I can't even look her straight in the eyes!. I was dying to get her number during MWF; and befriend her but lets just say I'm a major looser!

I know that nobody would read articles in this blog but I love to keep it to express my point of bYoU!

Butcher in the House

‘Butcher’ in the House

“The prime duty of the Government is to serve and protect the people…” – Article II, Section 4-Philippine Constitution

The fundamental purpose of the Government is to give order to a society and maintain its basic unity. It is created by the people, without the people there is no Government. Therefore, one of its thrust is to serve and protect the interest of the people.

For me, the party-list system is a scheme for the people to see that there is a representation of different sectors in our society. It is very essential to have the voices of the “marginalized and underrepresented” be heard in the Lower House. But since it started in 1998 election, it has been corrupted and ill-used by other pseudo-sectoral organizations backed and financed by prominent individuals, political parties and dynasties to serve their vested interest.

On my own analysis, the Administration has been using it for dominance in the Lower House. The more allies they have, the greater chances they control power, influence and money. They even enact laws that could be used to quell the movement of the opposition and the leftist organizations.

Last Tuesday, I have read a statement sent by BAYAN (Bagong Alyansang Makabayan) secretary general Renato Reyes Jr. on GMANews.TV that Palparan through BANTAY party-list enjoys the support of the Arroyo administration and the AFP during the 2007 election. From this, there is no need to question Palparans’ loyalty.

The infamous Jovito Palparan is a distinct and vital ally of the Arroyo regime. His background on suppressing by means of terrorizing the anti-Arroyo organizations, especially the leftists, is very useful for the Arroyos’ clinging to power.

Here are some lists of HR (human Rights) violations blamed by the militant organizations on Palparan (source:

- 326 human rights cases, including about 80 killings, in Mindoro during his term as head of the Army’s 204th Infantry Brigade from 2001 to 2003.

- February 2005, he was installed chief of the 8th Infantry Division based in Eastern Visayas. There, he was accused of masterminding 199 cases of killings, disappearances, harassment, torture and other violations.

- September 2005, he took command of the 7th ID in Fort Magsaysay, Nueva Ecija. Within a month, 13 leaders and members of party-list group Bayan Muna and its affiliate organizations in Central Luzon region were reported killed.

Though he denied the accusations, we are quite sure that Jovito Palparan will be one of the chief sponsors of the incoming pitches in congress that would aggravate the human rights violations in the country. Either in line to his alleged expertise in political killings or not, one thing that I’m sure is that he is one of the Arroyos henchmen: a tool for tyranny, killings and for her political survival.

Before I end this column, I would like to leave some questions for us to think of answers that I hope would be translated into concrete actions. First, if the role of our Government is to serve and protect the interest, life and liberty of the people, how could the government allow such a people’s threat (Palparan) installed in congress?

Second, leaders are seemingly ‘good’ examples. Is he worthy of a place in congress amidst the accusations and the records?

Third, the state guarantees full respect of human rights. Isn’t it unethical for an alleged butcher and human rights violator inaugurated in congress?

Fourth, not making a stand on this issue is like tolerating such criminality. Aren’t you going to lift a hand?
