Jose Martin Carlo Profiles Adriana (10 Years From Now)


It was July 28, 2011 at 11:55 pm when an ominous cloud of imagination hovered over my head. At first, it was an explosion of things that I wanted to be, to go to or to experience, at least. It was hazy, it was exciting and it was scary until the spinning and mixing of brain cells led to a very vivid scene.

I was slammed against the sofa, a bottle of beer owned my hand and a very high-end looking TV was in front of me. Regardless of the things that I should be more curious about, (like where am I, what am I doing here or when did I get here) I instinctively looked for the remote which was hiding under my larger belly. Of course I was also befuddled with the contraption I was holding because the TV remote looked like an IPhone 4 and it even took me a couple of minutes to figure out where the ‘On’ button was. Alas, there it was and I eagerly turned on the TV. The shows I scanned and skipped through eventually gave me the shocking answers. I was actually in a day in the year 2021, in a house that I owned where I had cable TV (finally). The scene (in my imagination) told nothing of what or where have I been but it felt like this was not actually about me.

After a run along decision to do something else other than watching, I switched on to one last TV station. A familiar one, it was the National Geographic channel, where it surprisingly featured someone who I surely met 10 years ago. The show was a tribute to Nat Geo’s greatest photographers and one of them was a Filipino. She was Adriana Garcia.

I suddenly stumbled into a confusing nostalgic moment during a supposed picture of the future (like There and Back again by Bilbo Baggins haha) knowing that she was a former classmate of mine in college. But nevertheless I was glad that someone I knew (barely) could be this big in the future. She finally made it, I said to myself as I was blown away by her photographic interpretations of the places she went to, the people she met and the experiences she had that no small thinker could ever dream of. The tribute continued on, narrating how Adriana started her career as a premier travel and landscape photographer, taking off from her first full-time job right after college up to how she got to be a Nat Geo photographer. At the age of 22, she had already landed her feet through most of Asia, and being a top jetsetter and all, she always aimed for that perfect shot. She did it almost as natural as tying a pony tail. Her talent and ambition took her further across the globe that she now aged 27, has already traveled around the world once she heads on to the ultimate African Safari. In an interview, she said that she could not have realized this, once dream of hers if not for the support of the people around her, those who confidently told her to “go there, shoot and see” and of course “those who paid for the plane tickets” she jokingly added. True enough, and as awestruck as I was, she earned the cheers of the world.

The show/documentary or whatever, ended, leaving me a whole lot of positive ideas on how I also want to be known to the world like Adriana Garcia. I guess being 32 years old during this imagined moment is still not too old to embark on a path of greatness like Adriana did. Or what if I try to meet her in some way and try to apply to her as an assistant, since we were, after all, classmates way past time? I’m sure it would not be such a bad idea.

From this thought, as it already felt conclusive, everything else turned blurry again. I was into the haze once more and in the clearing ahead, I came back to reality. I tried to act like I don’t remember a thing, but the feeling of inspiration is just undeniable. I think Adriana of 2011 should really read this right now.

Adriana: What Is Wrong With The Youth Today?


by Adriana Garcia

                “Kids today…” A line usually followed by an exasperated sigh.  Why? What’s wrong with today’s youths? If you are to ask me my answer can be expressed in two simple words: A LOT. Now if you are one of the 21st century youths do not hate me or persecute me just yet, read first then judge if what I’ve written is true or not.

Now here is the list of what I think is wrong about the youths today

1.       Youth today are STUBBORN.

Remember the title of a book “EAT.PRAY.LOVE”?  Well the tag line of the youths today is “EAT.PRAY. TECH” or maybe just scratch out the word Pray and replace it with sleep or party. Am I being rude? I don’t think so, I’m just telling the truth (who doesn’t want that kind of life style?). Kids today won’t even lift a finger to do house chores, why bother if they have a helper to do all the work? But in the end this kids knows nothing and is too dependent that they cannot even survive in their own household without their hardworking helper, why the 21st century youth will starve and stink, all clothes will be dirty and the house will be oh so messy.

But they are not just stubborn in dong house works, even at school. When doing home works all they do is log in on the net, type the word, click search, find an article, copy, paste, and then hit print and presto home work done! Oh doing home work is as easy as ABC, if in the past students need to browse through dusty books in the library and copy notes by hand, today all they do is copy and paste, no editing, no reading not even scanning, lucky if you’ll come across a student who read his paper before passing it to his teacher.

Today’s youths are well pampered and are spoon fed. Usually all they need to do is to ask, that is why they became stubborn

2.       Youth today are REBELLIOUS.

When I was in high school a lot of the students in my class are rebellious. When I ask them why, the most popular answer is because according to them their parents do not understand them. But in reality I think it’s the other way around, kids do not understand their parents. If kids don’t get what they want or do not usually have the approval of their parents, kids tend to resort to the only way they think is effective and that is to declare “war” with their parents, kids engaged in this “war” does things that they know will surely annoy their moms and dads, the main goal is make their parents bow down to their will. But usually nothing good comes out of this, for in the end the child only suffers from doing a lot of wrong things which led to a very messy life, and yet his not happy. The problem is when the kids want something, they want it NOW and they’ll have it now, and if they don’t they’ll hate you, because the line between the need and the want is too blurred for them that their understanding is clouded by desire to the point that they don’t want to listen to reasons and think of them self as the oppressed one.

3.       Youths today are too LIBERATED.

Liberate a verb meaning set free, esp. from imprisonment or oppression, while Liberated is an a adj. that means free from social conventions, esp. with regard to sexual roles. Both words pertain to only one precious word that we all cherish…FREEDOM. When we say freedom we automatically think that we are allowed to do anything that we want, say everything that is in our heads, act as we please; but is that the true essence of freedom? I think not.

To be free is to be responsible. That is what the youths usually forget, they are overwhelmed by the concept of freedom that they do not even think twice of the things that they are going to do, and that is today’s reality. Parents cannot control their children as they grew up and develop their minds, and once they’ve reached the age they will ask for their precious freedom, freedom to choose, freedom to do things when and where they please, freedom, freedom, freedom. Too much of this precious thing is terrifying just look around and you and you’ll see how it ruined the youths, they are free to choose: they choose wrong friends, choose their own way to what they call happiness either right or wrong they don’t care, happiness is what matters. They are free to do what they want to do: They act the way they want to regardless if it’s moral or not and that boils down to one of the problems of teens today unwanted pregnancy, they act without thinking most of the times their actions are driven by desire or by urge. Yes that’s the truth we enjoy too much freedom that we abuse it. If you want to be free be responsible.

4.       Youths are LACKING G.M.R.C.

G.M.R.C. an acronym for Good Manners and Right Conduct, it’s one of the subjects taught in school if you can still remember. Though I don’t think many of the kids today does, because if they do maybe they’ll conduct themselves a lot better. Why did I say so? Kids today answer back to their parents as if they already know everything about life, either they’re right or wrong they’re RIGHT. They wouldn’t hear your scolding instead you’ll have to listen to their reasoning which usually is as crooked as a screw. Another thing which is very evident inside the classrooms or in public places is that kids (especially teens) don’t know when to talk and when not to, they talk as long and as loud as they please, sometimes they even acquire the habit of using foul words (wherein a sentence isn’t complete without this words), they don’t care if they are disturbing someone or disrespecting others because of their non stop chattering, I mean it’s okay to talk (we live in a free country) but learn to be considerate. One thing I would like to point out is sometimes we forget Filipino customs, like one of the things marked as old fashioned in our society is being conservative. I think self preservation among the modern Maria Claras is not a top priority any more (you know what I mean) it’s just funny that sometimes you’ll come across girls who boasts of having a lot of BFs, for me it’s not something you dish out to the public. To be demure, chivalrous, respectful and sensible seems to be a thing of the past, maybe sometimes it’s good if we’ll all go back to being elementary students and attend our G.M.R.C. class.

 Form me these are the things I find wrong in today’s youths. May be you are thinking who am I to write these things? First of I want to tell you I am not angry to the 21st century youths, and definitely I am not a mom lecturing you or scolding kids of your age, I know and I am writing all these things because I am one of TODAY’S YOUTHS. I’ve written all these things based on my observations and experiences, and as much as it pains me to admit some of the wrong things I found in today’s youths, I found it in myself as well.

How about you, what do you think is wrong with the youths of the 21st century?

Thank you again for reading my blog, I hope you enjoyed it. Happy reading.


Jandee: If I Could Tell Pnoy One Thing


by Jandee Nipales

It is clearly seen nowadays that the situation of our country is not good. Too many controversies and anomalies around the first year of President Noynoy Aquino. Although he speaks good things in front of the people of the Philippines, it is not seen in actual life. “Action speaks louder than words.” So if there is one thing I would like to tell to the president, it would be to do his promises and perform well as a president. His speeches and promises would be nothing if he himself is not acting on it. He needs to talk to his members and government employees to help him do it, because I know he cannot do it alone. So he needs to start showing good character to his employees as a good leader. And also, a good leader is always a good follower. He needs to listen to his members to for some suggestions that might help improve the economy and state of our country.

So, that’s all I want to share for now. Until next time and PEACE OUT! :p

Kim: What’s Wrong With Young People Today

by Kim Evan Manuel
The young  people of today are kind of rebellious.  You can seldom see conservative young people. Mostly they are exposed to bad influences that lead them to commit crimes and become a problem to  society.
Many young people today are caught up in bad habits and because of these habits they always get into trouble. Some of them can be found in prison. They are being influenced by friends, what they see on TV or sometimes because of their family.
Sad to say young people today are headstrong . They don’t know what they are doing. This happens because of lack of parents’ guidance and too much exposure to media. Sometimes because of curiosity they try to discover things without asking their parents because young people of today think that they already know everything. That’s what I can say about them.
