Smoking has become quite the trend today. You can find smokers almost everywhere. I, personally, know quite a number of people who smoke. What I find weird though, is how some may be fine with admitting they smoke, but there are many who are ashamed of their smoking. I just ask myself, “why do they bother smoking if they are ashamed of it?” So, maybe a few tips on how to stop smoking may help.
1.) Fill your room with pictures of what smoking does to your lungs. Just make sure the pictures are very visible so you know and persuade yourself to see what you are doing to yourself.
ew, di ba? With this, you can gross yourself out with your smoking.
2.) If the first option grossed you out, this option will “inspire” you. Get a cigarette box but replace your cigarretes with pretzel sticks. If you don’t like prezels you can try stik-o instead. Maybe you tried this when you were a kid, pretending to smoke using stik-o’s. It can help you slowly replace your smoking with eating instead.
3.) Buy one box of cigarettes but wrap it in a thick roll of tape. With this, you would have to give in a lot of effort just to smoke one stick. You can condition yourself to just drop smoking if you would have to go through such lengths just for a stick.
4.) Have a friend to snap your cigarettes whenever you would smoke. It is another type of conditioning. If it always snaps, why bother? Sayang pera.
5.) Lastly, something quite cliche, think of your loved ones. You aren’t the only one affected by your smoking. Sila rin. They worry when you smoke too because the effects of smoking is already known. So, you better think, what would my smoking do to them as well?
So there you have it. Tips to stop smoking. I do hope smokers would not be offended by this post. :)

Peter Pan movie nung 2003. Dito ako unang nagka-crush. Hahaha. Dunno, pero enthralling talaga si Peter Pan para sakin. Lalo na sa movie na ‘to.
I was really rooting for Peter and Wendy, and It was really sad when Wendy decided to leave Peter. Parang, ako, “WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAG, WENDY! PANO NA SI PETERRRRRRRR! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!”
Plus, it gives a brush on growing up. Medyo madrama at sensitive din ‘yun, di ba? Basta. Malakas ang kapit ni Peter Pan sa akin. HAHAHA. Special, really. Ang lungkot kase talaga na iniwan ni Wendy si Peter Pan na sobrang cute kase parang may feelings na siya kay Wendy. ENEBE WENDY BAKEEEEEEEET?! Hahahaha. Tas andito pa tong sad, touching and cute scene na to. INIYAKAN NI PETER SI MARRIED WENDY.
AY NAKOW, PETER PAN. :))) I reaaaaally love this as a whole. Sad, cute, touching and everything. It gives off a weird, comfortable, and nostalgic feeling. Peter Pan. <3
P.S. I WILL DEFINITELY READ THE BOOK!

Ayun. Today, October 23, 2012, officially enrolled at reshuflled na kami. In other words, hiwa-hiwalay na block namin. Palabas lang ng mga sentimyento de asukal ko ha?
Nastress akong slight nung pagkadating ko, aba nasasalubong na ko ng iba’t-ibang rant at reklamo na reshuffled na. I was like, “TEKA TEKA AKALA KO WALA NA ‘YUN.”
Naghihintay ako na may gumulat saking estudyanteng may hawak na mic at may kasamang cameraman at biglang sisigaw ng “YOU JUST GOT TROLLED!” (Isang mini production na gawa namin sa BroadComm class) PERO PAK NA PAK WALA. NAKAKAIRITA. FIRST TIME KONG GINUSTONG MALOKO.
Tas ang daming biktima. So ano pa ba masasabi ko? Wala na. Kahit umasa kaming joke lang at chika ang lahat, hala bira natuloy ang pagkakahiwalay namin. Encoded at nakalagay sa Reg Form namin ang iba’t-ibang blocks. May CA1, CA2, CA3, at CA4 (Di ko alam kung may 5) Anyway, WALA NANG BAWIAN O IBAHAN. Tarush, ansabe ng block na naiba din pala. Pero kahit anong reklamo na mailalabas, deads na. Wala na nga. Kahit magrally pa o kung anong strike, di na keribels ayusin to. Sayang lang, effort naming intidihin, makilala, at pagpasensyahan ang isa’t-isa sa MarkStrat at Broadquest, magkakahiwalay din pala. Ansabe ng effort maging close?
Kebertoots getching okay kokey, wala na nga. Sigurado akong pinag-isipan maigi ng admin to at hindi naten sila masisisi. Kailangan e. So ano na guys? Let’s just make new friends na ha? Pero syempre naman walang kalimutan. Oo, madaling sabihin pero di kadalasang nagagawa. Pero, effort effort din mga pre. Ang makalimot agad-agad masasapak. CHAR.
Ayun. Naglabas lang ng kapirasong emotion. Hahahaha. Basta, CA4 na ko ngayon at tanggap ko na ‘yun. PERO SYEMPRE MAMIMISS KO ANG 2CA3 KASI NAPAMAHAL NA KO SA MGA ‘YUN ANO. MAHIHIWALAY PA KO SA TURBATES. TARA IYAK TAYO.

The Hunger Games is a TV Show, where 24 tributes - a boy and girl pair - from 12 districts fight to death until only one victor is left. The Games do not only involve brute strength and survival skills; it also involves making one known and noticeable enough for them to receive support throughout the games.
Knowing at least the gist of the concept of the Hunger Games, do you see some similarities it has with the Broadcast Industry?
“Happy Hunger Games!”
First, it involves seeing who is best by killing off enemies. The broadcast industry does not literally kill off its competitors, but it involves showing who or what company is the best. Survival of the fittest, in simple terms. If your company does not fair off with the others, you will be “killed” or cut off by those who are powerful and mighty from the industry. This industry involves showing who is the best and fighting for the best spot.
“Who cares? It’s all a big show. It’s all how you’re perceived” - Haymitch Abernathy
Now we have the sponsors. The tributes do not only kill to win and rely on their skills, they also show-off even before the official games in order to garner sponsors willing to help them. They have to learn how to be like-able in order to heighten their chances of winning, and more importantly, SURVIVING. This is something much similar to the broadcast industry. Shows, programs, and concepts are made in order to make their company “sellable” Their sponsors and advertisers are their means of survival. How do they pull sponsors? Katniss, the heroine of The Hunger Games, received help during the Games when the sponsors saw her skill. Just like in real life: show them your skills and make yourself known as something different. You lure them to you by using any means, positive or not, to catch them. Another example would be the personality Peeta and Katniss (tributes from the 12th district) projected for themselves during the Games and preparation. They were projected as a couple and people who were unique. They used garments that seemed to be on fire and pronounced it as real fire in order to “wow” the audience. The Games and the broadcast industry involves having to make oneself NOTICEABLE.
“I want to do something, right here, right now, to shame them, to make them accountable, to show the Capitol that whatever they do or force us to do that there is a part of every tribute they can’t own. That Rue was more than a piece in their games. And so am I.” - Katniss Everdeen
The Hunger Games shows that the broadcast industry has many faces. It can be a villain that oppresses, it can be a light that shines the truth, it can be a thin thread of hope, it can be shackles to concretize social control, it can be anything. The Hunger Games itself was a TV show. To the 12 districts it was a reminder of what the Capital can do. To the Capitol it was a simple means of entertainment. Along the way, the Hunger Games, as it was broadcast, became a bridge to let the districts see what the capitol was doing to them and a spark to start something. Our broadcast industry is the same. It can be used as a private means to obtain profit and power. A simple giving of people what they want in order to have the advertisers to flock to them, or a means of fabricating the truth to use against one’s competitors. A weapon similar to having a private army. It can also be used reponsibly. A means of broadcasting what is there to be broadcast: the truth. The media is a neutral force that obtains a side depending on who uses it. The broadcast industry is our very own Hunger Games.
“Happy Hunger Games, and may the odds be ever in your favor!”
