What I'm Really Thinking About During Stat...

Our professor in Stat noticed that we're virtually wiping off drool from our faces during his lecture yesterday. So he urged us to make a protest to the admin or CHED to remove math courses from our curriculum since we won't be applying them in our future jobs anyway. He says it's our right to do so.

But I don't have the urge. I feel contented as it is. I feel indifferent. I'm a good example of a bad Filipino citizen--not fighting for his own rights.

I admire activists because they have the guts to do what they're doing even if the price they have to pay is their own lives. They stand firm on what they believe in and they don't yield to the pressures of society.

I hate pseudo-activists: the ones jumping on the bandwagon, the ones holding banners they don't even understand, the ones who rally for the sake of rallying and the ones vanishing in thin air when confronted with a water cannon.

It's disgusting.

But it sure beats being indifferent.

"The soul of the world lies on its leaders but its body would always be on it's followers."

Great observation, although I don't think you should be too hard on yourself for not being an instrumental "makibaka-huwag-matakot!" being.

The fact that you posted your sentiments here in you blog means your trying to achieve that change even though it might be on the subconcscious level.

Not everyone could fight the so-called great fight. There are people who are born for the part such as Rainer for example. Others you and myself exist not only to become as their mere spectators, but as their support and reminders.

ewan ko.
mas gusto ko pa yung mga indifferent kasi hindi sila nagpapanggap na may paki sila. (indefferent nga, e. inutil.)
isa pa, may iba-ibang mukha naman ang pagiging aktibista.
di lang sa pagharap sa water cannon.
