WORLD SCOUT SCARF DAY

“Once a Scout, Always a Scout”

 image

World Scout Scarf Day is a recent effort to encourage active and former Scouts worldwide to wear their neckerchiefs in public annually on August 1 as a symbol of the Scout promise and the spirit of Scouting.

neckerchief or less commonly scarf is a type of neckwear associated with scouts. It consists of a triangular piece of cloth or a rectangular piece folded into a triangle. The long edge is rolled towards the point, leaving a portion unrolled. The neckerchief is then fastened around the neck with the ends either tied or clasped with a slide or woggle.

TYPES OF STUDENTS BEFORE THE EXAM

thejerrynation:

1. The Deceiver- These are the students who declare before the exam that they did not review yet their eye bags clearly suggest that stayed up late studying. They just don’t want others to expect too much from them. If they get a low mark, then it’s quite acceptable. If they get a high score, then this may mean that they can still manage to get good grades without studying. It’s like ‘Oha, mataas pa din grade ko kahit petiks ako”

2. Show Off- They are the ones whom you think is the most-prepared among the class. They walk into class with confidence. They will share what they have studied and you’ll be quite surprised of the topics they have covered to study. You’ll be intimidated of course on how ready they are. Sadly, they just don’t deliver during actual exams.

3. Religious- “Diyos na po ang bahala” students. You will see them inside the church or even offering eggs to monasteries every term exam.

4.Silent killer- The mamba. They are quite. They are in the corner just observing what’s happening around. They won’t share if they have studied or not. They don’t participate on last minute group study before the exam. But if it’s results time, they are, most of the time, on the top of the list.

Man in LOVE

Stereotyping.

There seems to be a notion that when it comes to the strength or dedication of love, women beat men out in some sort of “landslide victory.” That a man in love cannot reach the level of a woman in love. That men, as a whole, are more preoccupied with the pleasures of sex and Call of Duty than the intricate system that is romance. Allow me to just step in and say that if you believe this, you couldn’t be more wrong.

When a man is truly in love, he will go until his literal breaking point to do anything and everything to make you happy. A man in love will do truly selfless things for you all day, expecting nothing in return but the mutual feelings of love. And a man who is truly, deeply in love, wants nothing more than to provide for your well-being. And we do all this, just to go unnoticed most of the time. We work behind the scenes, ensuring that you’re happy, doing the “little things” to make sure that you have a smile on your face. Solely for you.

MOUNT BATULAO: ROYAL RANGES

image

Mount Batulao, Nasugbu, Batangas

As a corporate worker, an occasional escape from corporate jungle would definitely ease the stress. Office life is a routine. It is essential that once in a while you do what you love, and you witness what you want to see. For me, I travel as much as I can. If there’s a chance to see the world outside the metro, I take it. Remember to travel is to live.

And so, I hiked Mount Batulao.

Certainly, Mount Batulao is one of the popular mountains in Philippines. What sets Batulao apart from other trek is that it’s not covered with trees. Rather it’s a long trail of grass and steep rock formation. The parched, dry land was almost barren. So expect that you would be totally exposed to direct sunlight. That’s why, a sunscreen protection is a must!

Going to Mount Batulao is as easy as one two three. You just take a bus from Coastal Mall, with a route to Nasugbu and drop off at Evercrest Golf Course. 

Here’s a sample itinerary:

Old to New Trail

0400 ETD Coastal Mall bus terminal to Nasugbu, Batangas

715 Arrival at Evercrest

0730 Start trek

0845 Arrival at Fork. Take the left, downward trail that enters some woodland

0900 Arrival at Camp 1. Register.

1015 Arrival at Camp 8, commence final assault

1100 Arrival at summit; lunch

1200 Start descent via New Trail, which is opposite the Old Trail at the summit

1300 Arrival at New Trail Campsite. Register again.

1530 Back at Evercrest; clean-up at nearby sari-sari store

1600 ETD for Tagaytay by jeepney (P30.00)

1630 ETA Tagaytay; anything goes from here

New to Old Trail

0400 ETD Coastal Mall bus terminal to Nasugbu, Batangas

0715 Arrival at Evercrest

0730 Start trek

0845 Arrival at Fork. Take the middle/slightly right upward trail

0930 Arrival at New Trail Campsite. Rest / Register.

1030 Arrival at summit; early lunch

1200 Start descent via Old Trail, which is opposite the New Trail at the summit

1300 Arrival at New Trail Campsite. Register again.

1530 Back at Evercrest; clean-up at nearby sari-sari store

1600 ETD for Tagaytay by jeepney (P30.00)

1630 ETA Tagaytay; anything goes from here

 The trail is quite apparent as what you can see in the photo. So I believe you don’t really need to hire a tour guide for this trek. You can at least save P500 for the tour guide fee.

PAOLO BEDIONES SCANDAL PART II

My advice to people who want to record their “adventures”:

1. After recording, watch it immediately. Then DELETE.
2. If you can’t delete right away, save it on a DVD or USB. Hide it in a place only you can find.
3. NEVER save on a laptop or phone. Once your phone got snatched or robbed, you will be fucked up.
4. Or if you have to save it first on a laptop, put password on the file itself.
5. Or transfer the file in hidden folder.
6. Or rename the file to something like these “Cartoons” “Thesis”. You know what I mean.
7. JUST DON’T RECORD. SIMPLE.

Okay?

Tips to become a successful CPA.

thejerrynation:

1.  Do it for the right reason(s). Who does not hope to win has already lost. So believe in yourself, work hard and you will emerge as a winner.


2. Assess your situation. You must know where you are before you determine how to get where you want to be. " Never underestimate your own intelligence and never overestimate the intelligence of others."


3. Make a commitment. Passing the Board Exam should be one promise that you keep to yourself. If you want it bad enough, you’ll find a way to get it done. Remove your fear. Remember everything we want is on the other side of fear! so to be successful, you have to overcome the fear of failure.


4. Prepare! There are (3) types of preparation: preparation for: competence, speed and endurance.


5. Live in the Present. Focus. Be where you are. The past is gone - all you can do is learn from it. (what works, what doesn’t). The future is uncertain. All you have is the present. Make the most of it, and you will have no regrets. Nothing beats going to sleep, greatly exhausted, but victorious - knowing you gave your best. 


"I never quite understood why people neglect to see what is right in front of them. Life is moving while they just stand and watch. Minutes, days, and hours pass and by the time they realize it, that opportunity ceases to exist."


6. Be a professional. Being a professional requires that you go ahead with the review, no matter how you feel, and no matter what the circumstances are. True winners do not stop when the going gets tough.


7. Be a problem solver. Treat every difficulty as an opportunity, a chance to become a better person. Problems should make you stronger, not weaker. Do not wither under problems or try to avoid them - instead, be brave and actively seek problems and immediately work on the solution


8. God is in control. No matter how hard the review becomes, no matter how hard the Board question seem, remember there is Someone who is always in control. If things seem to be getting out of hand, do not panic. God is in control - if you let Him be.
