#BeTheBoss, Like Right Now

If there is something that you I would want to be, yun ay maging boss. Not necessarily maging boss sa kumpanya at mag-utos at mag-utos; gusto ko yung respeto na kaakibat nito.

May agent ako dati na BOSS ang tawag niya sa lahat ng kausap niya. “Hi boss”, “Boss, pano to?”, “Boss, pwede mag-leave?” , “Boss, may deliver ako ng LPG, honda ako ngayon.” Biruan nga namin noon, kung gusto mong maging boss, kausapin mo si Czar.

May tip pa ako sa mga boss natin ngayon, para yung pagka-boss nila, mas makilala ng kapwa nila boss at seryosohin sila ng mga mas malalaking boss. All you need is to close that deal, and to close it, dapat BOSS ka! Continue reading

Day 4 sa Harvard

Ito ay kwento ng pinsan ko na nagdo-Doctorate ngayon sa Harvard. Repost ko lang para sa mga clueless tungkol  sa buhay ng mga tao sa distinguished school na ito.

Day 4 sa Harvard. Intense. Bawal ang tanga sa klase. Bawal ang hindi handa. Hindi sapat na binasa mo lang. Dapat may quotable quote ka. Dapat maiilink mo sa iba pang mga readings. Dapat may critique ka. Pag sinabing Bourdieu, dapat kilala mo. Pag sinabing Hegel, dapat kilala mo. Pag sinabing Derrida, dapat kilala mo. At makakapag-quote ka. Yung tipong verbatim. Sa original language.

Yung mga guro, grabe. Walang gray areas. Yung tipong “Ganito ang sinabi ni Professor so-and-so. Mali siya. Basahin ninyo ang kritisismo ko sa sinulat niya.”

Sa bawat dalawang oras na klase, mga limang oras kang maghahanda. At ang mga guro, walang pasabi. Bigla na lang magpa-Frances. Bigla na lang mag-a-Aleman. Bigla na lang mangangastila. Pasensya ka kung hindi mo maintindihan. Bahala kang mag-research. Nag-discuss kanina ng teyorya. In French. Tapos halfway through, biglang banat, “Hindi ko na i-Inglesin, naintindihan ninyo naman na.” Buti na lang, nakapagkape ako at medyo malinaw at nakaupo ako sa harapan. Otherwise, sabaw.

Kaya kapag umuuwi ako, diretso sa kama kaagad para umidlip sandali. Kahapon, 6:00 PM na ako umuwi. Umidlip “sandali.” Pagkagising ko, 3:00 AM na, hindi ko pa nababasa yung assignment.

At Day 4 pa lang. LOL.

The Young Messiah is COMING

At the heels of blockbuster movies from Chris Columbus such as “Gremlins,” “Home Alone 1 & 2,” “Mrs. Doubtfire,” “Percy Jackson” films and the “Harry Potter” franchise is the faith-based epic “The Young Messiah” which he produced under the direction of Cyrus Nowrasteh.

Columbus once again demonstrates his acumen for nurturing and cultivating young talents in “The Young Messiah,” replicating his feat from the highly successful “Harry Potter” franchise by casting then unknown talents such as Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint in lead roles. Columbus now brings the young Adam Greaves-Neal at the center of “The Young Messiah” as the child Jesus along with an impressive supporting cast that includes Sean Bean, Sara Lazarro, Vincent Walsh, Clive Russell, Jonathan Bailey and Christian McKay.

“The Young Messiah” is based from Anne Rice’s novel “Christ the Lord: Out of Egypt” where the author imagines a year (7th) in the life of the young Jesus. In the movie, Jesus’ parents, Mary (Lazarro) and Joseph (Walsh) are seen bearing the responsibility of raising the Son of God. Rice, in her Facebook page previously revealed that she was brought to tears upon seeing film for the first time further stating that “I support it with all my heart. The writing, the directing, the cast are an author’s dream of fidelity to the spirit of the book and book’s concerns for biblical and historical accuracy. I’m so happy to share this.”

The inspiring story of Jesus as a young boy in “The Young Messiah” sees Greaves-Neal as Jesus embarking on a journey from Egypt to Nazareth after he miraculously brings someone back to life. When King Herod (Bailey) orders the death of the child, Roman centurion Severus (Bean) is tasked to find the family across the desert. Young Jesus then turns to his parents for answers as he grapples to understand His own divinity. But how do they explain God to his own son as they worry about his safety at the same time?

“This movie really hangs on a young child,” says Nowrasteh on casting Adam. The director decided to send Columbus a tape of Adam along with tapes of other boys that they were considering for the lead role and Columbus’ response was immediate, “He said that no one else came close to Adam.”

Adam, just nine years old at that time, naturally took on the role without feeling overwhelmed. “I just think, I’m a boy that can do great and surprising things,” he shared on how he tried to play the role.

Sean Bean in turn says that his character is also of importance to the story. “He sees Jesus and his family, he’s out and about on the streets and city all the time, and then he answers to Herod, who sits there on his throne surrounded by concubines and debauchery. Eventually, he has a big change of heart when he decided who he can be loyal to. And that’s to Jesus ultimately. You could say he’s the first convert to Christianity, he epitomizes that.”

“There’s a huge audience for faith-based films and this is the original story of one of the greatest people to have ever lived,” concludes producer Chris Columbus.

Basic Phone to the Rescue

2 days ago, may katangahan na ginawa ang S4 ko. Tumalon siya mula sa center table namin sa salas papuntang sahig. Feeling niya ata bunjee jump yun. Nakalimutan pa niyang magtali ng lubid sa paa.

Ayun, crack ang screen.

Hassle tuloy. Tatlong araw kong pinag-isipan kung ipapaayos ko siya, papalitan, o hindi na ako magsi-celphone buong buhay ko. Tutal, wala naman nagti-txt sa akin kundi (1) Globe update, (2) update ni Maine Mendoza sa Twitter dahil naka-subscribe ako, (3) Scammer na kunwari ay nagpasa sayo ng load, reply YES daw sa next message, at (4) Nag-aalok ng condo sa BGC. Wala po akong plano kumuha ng bahay sa BGC. Saka na pag nanalo na ako sa Lotto.
