OPINION

EDITORIAL New Grip in the Umbrella

It was a victorious feat for the Student Reform Party (SRP) after all the candidates in the slate, headed by standard-bearer Ma. Mercedes Salvacion “Issa” Luciñada, swept its rivals from the Student Movement Service Party via landslide victory during the College Student Executive Board (CSEB) Elections on March. However, due to a speedy turn of the table, it only became a sudden triumph for the winning party as the Chairmanship position was put to an unforeseen vacancy when the President-Elect did not enroll this semester due to ‘practicality reasons’.

There’s no way to turn a blind eye on the matter because prior to the confirmation of the Chairman-elect’s absence, news, rumors and questions had already reverberated on the four corners of the institution. Many thought about it as a mere issue thrown against the council; some treated the matter as a joke. The issue heated up even more when Vice-President (VP) for Internal Affairs-elect Jhoven Mabaquiao was introduced as the Chairperson during the General Assembly held on June.

All questions was put to a close when Mabaquiao formally assumed the position by virtue of succession on June 17 after a formal meeting conducted by former Student Affairs Director Allan Albaytar with the CSEB Council and the presidents of the different school’s major and minor student organizations.

SEESAW by: JERIC BIGUERAS

Sweet words are like honey, a little may refresh, but too much gluts the stomach. They draw a trick that could stir the mind and that could bring one on the frontier to choose whether to believe or not.

I honestly admire the way Pres. Noynoy Aquino delivers his speech. Every time he utters his sentiment before the public, he really sounds a poetic genius with the metaphoric phrases he places on his message. His use of the Filipino language, in particular, is impressive as it draws Juan de la Cruz closer to the very heart of his political and national ideals.

The teachers are the prime movers of instruction in the classroom; they play a vital role in the development of the learners. Apparently, as the teachers play this role, they also pose a great effect on the learners’ behaviour and classroom performance. Before you proceed to the pillar of this column, please accept this cliché idea that I do not wish to cleave someone’s heart, since I just want to share a few experience about my being a student so far— experiences that you might also encounter or probably had encountered.

Perihelion by: Norlie F. Garbida

They say that complete forgiveness is not possible without forgetting. It is by forgetting that we truly relieve ourselves with the burden of holding grudges. As noble as it may sound, for me, the concept of forgetting others’ wrongdoings doesn’t apply to all circumstances and to all people.

Almost 13 years ago, the nation stood watch at what I thought then as one of the biggest political fiasco that our nation has faced. When former Pres. Joseph “Erap” Estrada was arrested for plunder, taken to Camp Crame and required to take the routine mug shots, I thought we have finally seized corruption to its very roots. But like many others, I was wrong.

Riptide by Khryza Beth Lladoc

Just a year ago, a group of unidentified administrators (“admins”) gave birth to a facebook page now well-known to the Divinians as the Quatro Kantos, also referred to as QK. If I’m not mistaken, it features four sections that the admins update on a daily basis. These are Fashionable Wednesday which ambushes Divinians with good fashion taste; #DOTD which randomly features Divinians from employees to students; Stolen Shots; and the Confessions and Compliments, which I guess is the whole point of this column.

I laud the admins of Quatro Kantos. Presumably, they may have created the page to pave way for the unity of the students in a modern way but sad to say, to date, the page is somehow not achieving its goal. In fact, it is breaking apart the bond that should be strengthened between the student body and the Divine Word College of Legazpi’s molding workers.

LITERARY

HER WOMB
Text by: JERIC BIGUERAS
Illustration by: JIDY ONESA

The overcast was dark and the roar of thunder was loud. Summer, Cupid, and Frost pushed their way in the mud. Their breath became visible as threads of lightning flashed in the clouds and illuminated the area— a mushy old swamp enclosed within the thick canopy of the rainforest. With every ounce of their strength, they shielded themselves against the bombarding rain. In a distance, a shriek of a creature familiar but unknown to them reverberated in the storm, a sign that the worst was about to happen.

“Come on! We have to hurry,” Cupid muttered with forced determination.

“I don’t want to be dinner to that thing,” Frost whispered, his young and bruised feet carefully trudging in the swamp.

“I won’t let that Frost. I’ll protect you no matter what,” Summer said, swaying a thick strand of hair away from her sight.

Kaleidoscope: July Festivals Unraveled, Albay Colors Unleashed
By Francine Cao

Merriment and gaiety will always be part of the Filipino story. Fondness for ceremonial activities and rituals are common among us. With festive dances depicting legends and history as well as melodious cultural symphonies, the celebration of town fiestas in the different provinces marks us ideally distinct. It is our heritage, a birthright transmitted and acquired from our forefathers.

Notable in these occasions are the unity of the people, their love of culture, but most of all, the joviality present in everyone’s faces as they celebrate it. What we are is a nation of smile; we are happy people despite of the circumstances brought by trials and transcendental changes. This is our identity and this is something which we should shout to the world and be proud of.

Epitomizing the province’s spirituality and grace, three different municipalities of Albay flaunts its heritage through the celebration of festivals in honor of its patron saints and thanksgiving for bountiful goods.
