Things we’ve learned from high school and people we’ve met gave a significant impact in us. Everybody matters: the teacher who hoists students’ ambitions up to meet their potential, or the one who just ignores whatever they say until they stop saying anything; the guidance counselor who takes misbehaving students into their office to keep them from doing again unpleasant things; the classmate who teaches loyalty; the coach who instills some discipline. Sometimes the lessons inside the classroom are the least of it.

Everyone has a story to tell from high school, sketched out of memory and/or myth. The myth reflects the faith that we all have a chance to invent ourselves, and high school is the lab. We enter for this sweaty, four-year experiment, and if we are brave and lucky, we race out the big double doors that graduation flings open onto the rest of our life. Sometimes we don’t even think to look back at the ones who got lost along the way.

The stakes are so high, the experience so searing that in retrospect we sometimes polish it up. These are the best of times; you’ll remember your prom as long as you live. Intramurals and pep rallies from senior class down the freshmen for school games, the Citizens Army Training (CAT) outdoor every Saturdays and Sundays; the DLBC practice at the church ground, various student clubs that met in some places just to bond together and establish friendships. Even the pain looks poetic from a distance.

High school years are a great time in one’s life, far better than your elementary years. I’m talking about personal experience here. In high school, you will gain new freedoms, new experiences and also new responsibilities. Many high school students gain a new type of independence and maturity in thinking as well. However, other changes are less fun. To fully enjoy your high school experience, try to address the aspects of your life with which you are not happy. If you are feeling pressure to do something you feel is wrong, talk to a friend, parent, or counselor to find a solution. If you are not succeeding academically, find someone to help you improve. If you feel isolated socially, try to join a school club or group to make new friends. High school may seem rather daunting at first, but with time, you will come to appreciate everything about your experience. High school may be a time of change, but these changes should be for the better.
To all students of Borbon National High School, make the most of your experience all throughout your high school years. Believe me, it is worth to reminisce especially if you choose to savor the good ones.

Drop, Cover and Hold On!

After experiencing that 7.2 magnitude earthquake, all I can think now is that, “Thanks God I’m Still Alive!”

Remembering those moments, I was browsing the net for some safety tips on how to survive an earthquake. You know, wala gyoy nasayod kong ang kalamidad moabot. Ingon pa sa uban, better ready than sorry!

I’m checking if what I actually did (my action) that very time, ie: running outside the street would be acceptable to the experts. Unfortunately, the expert’s assessment was somehow less satisfactory. One best tip shared though …is to DROP, COVER and HOLD ON! Experts proved this as the best action for personal safety especially during actual earthquake emergencies.

But what if you experience panic attack and eventually lose control over the situation (like what happen to me that I ran like ‘Forest Gump’ and follow other people…bahalag asa dagan). Maybe in cases like makuyawan na jud ka, I think the best thing to do is… KNEEL, PRAY and REPENT! Maayo lang kong makahuna-huna dayon… ang ako lang ug makuyapan hinoon sa kakuyaw!

As no one really knows when disaster strikes, a few precautionary measures can enormously increase our chances of surviving an earthquake – or any other type of hazard. The earthquake safety tips below will not make us an expert. However, they could make a life-saving difference if we find ourselves in an earthquake situation.

Endow in your personal safety by reading some tips below (I’m serious! hehehe):

During the Earthquake:

Situation: INDOORS (eg: sulod sa balay or any type of structure)
If you are indoors, stay there. Quickly move to a safe location in the room such as under a strong desk, a strong table, or along an interior wall. The goal is to protect yourself from falling objects and be located near the structural strong points of the room. Avoid taking cover near windows, large mirrors, hanging objects, heavy furniture, heavy appliances or fireplaces.

Situation: COOKING (eg: nagluto ug sud-an)
If you are cooking, turn off the stove and take cover.

Situation: OUTDOORS (eg: nalaroy-laroy sa gawas)
If you are outdoors, move to an open area where falling objects are unlikely to strike you. Move away from buildings, power lines and trees.

Situation: DRIVING (eg: namasayro ug habal-habal or nag-drive sa imong car…kong naa man gani, joke)

If you are driving, slow down smoothly and stop on the side of the road. Avoid stopping on or under bridges and overpasses, or under power lines, trees and large signs. Stay in your vehicle.

After the Earthquake: Mga Kinahanglang Buhaton inig Human sa Linog

1.Check for injuries, attend to injuries if needed, help ensure the safety of people around you.
2.Check for damage. If your building is badly damaged you should leave it until it has been inspected by a safety professional.
3.If you smell or hear a gas leak, get everyone outside and open windows and doors. If you can do it safely, turn off the gas at the meter. Report the leak to the gas company and fire department. Do not use any electrical appliances because a tiny spark could ignite the gas.
4.If the power is out, unplug major appliances to prevent possible damage when the power is turned back on. If you see sparks, frayed wires, or smell hot insulation turn off electricity at the main fuse box or breaker. If you will have to step in water to turn off the electricity you should call a professional to turn it off for you.

Sa giingon pa ni anhing Ernie Baron, “Kong walang knowledge, walang power!” Pero kong naa na gani ka sa kakuyaw, ambot lang asa lagpot imong kag…

Mohupas jud dayon ang knowledge, kay nilabaw jud ang kulba!

The devastating earthquake we experienced just recently (15th October 2013) and continued aftershocks is really something to reflect on.

Here’s some of my personal experience during the quake…

I thought at first that it was not real. I just finished my morning ritual and are about to head for work when I noticed our ceiling fan moves erratically. To think that it was not connected to the main switch at that time. It was pretty much different to my normal days as I start hearing commotions at the living room when all of my roommates run towards the exit door at the back. I lost my composure too due to the stir of panic and immediately followed the pack outside. I realized that it was indeed an EARTHQUAKE.

My neighbors too are in state of shock because of the ground shaking for more than 30 seconds and seeing the cable wires dancing, walls creaking, roofs rattling and debris from our neighbor’s old houses falling one by one.

I certainly couldn’t move and there was no sign that it was stopping. The scene outside the street was just total disarray. All I can hear were racketing, weeping and howling from children and oldies. Some knelt down in prayers to ask the Lord to stop the ground from trembling.

One thing I learned though… that in times the earth shakes, one must find refuge to a safer ground.

After several hours, Philvocs recorded a 7.2 magnitude that lasted for thirty-eight seconds. We might think it was just a short period of time to experience that horrible scene but it also took stingy seconds to alter the lives of many Cebuanos and Boholanos forever.

As of this writing, I just couldn’t imagine the devastation brought by the 7.2 quake to Cebu and most especially to Bohol province.

Still grateful though that God spared us and it is but fitting that at the time of desperation for our affected brothers and sisters in Bohol and some areas in Cebu, we should not forget to offer our helping hands, generous hearts and true bayanihan spirit in order for “SUGBOHOL” to rise again.

We pray for all our affected brothers and sisters. Amen.

The School Called Life


Here’s another story from one of our alumni. She shared with us her work experience and the learning she has acquired along the way. Read and enjoy!


I once read this beautiful phrase from a poet named Oscar Wilde, when he wrote and I quote, “Education is an admirable thing, but it is well to remember from time to time that nothing that is worth knowing can be taught.” SO TRUE, I say.

LIFE LESSONS: “My arrogance was an utter sign of ignorance”

Years ago, in all of my 15 years in school, I too, had earned my fair share of academic awards in school. I was a consistent honor student since my first grade, made it to the top ten of the graduating class in BNHS and had been able to maintain excellent grades during college days. I even graduated with flying colors.

After graduation, I appeared on my very first interview at Ayala Mall more than just anxious and a bit frantic. I was 4th on the queue of more than 20 candidates. I emerged flustered during the interview but I nailed it down. For one, the interviewer told me to wait as I will be accepted for a counter sales position. In other word, ‘tindera’! Hah! Could anything be more insulting? My pride bled as I was applying and expecting a management trainee position.

But because life in our country is not that easy, I accepted the offer, though whining a bit on the side. Years later, however, I’ve realized how silly I have been. Not because I accepted the job as a ‘tindera’, but because my arrogance was an utter sign of ignorance. I started my very first job rock bottom and little did I know that it has given me tremendous learning in the process. The more experienced I have become, the more I have realized how little I really knew back then, despite all those years of excellent academic performance at school.

And as the years pass by, I have reached the management position bringing with me the slugs and shells from work; also realizing that I have eventually ascertain the work alphabet— down to the lowest echelon in the company. What’s better is that I have come to realize that the best lessons in life are the ones we learn and discover along the way, as we encounter other human beings at work and on certain level of our life. I have actually learned more things through actual experiences which I will not learn in any institution or the academic kind, but only in the school called ‘life’.

For me, it really is not the subjects in high school or the difficult subjects in college like anatomy, chemistry, rhetoric, physics or creative writing that fulfills our natural need for wisdom. It is both these simple and profound lessons we learn ourselves, the ones that bring us self-realization, facilitates our bonds with other people and moves us towards fulfillment that make us the whole package.

SO TRUE!!! As an expression in a local TV series.

SO TRUE… is what the rumormonger ‘Friends of Dona Tomasa’ (or FDT) used to say. “FDT or Friends of Dona Tomas is a group of elderly women in the famous ABS-CBN teleserye ‘My Little Juan’. These women professed to have served the church in the town of San Juan Bautista; but in reality are also fond of spreading gossips and scandals within the community. This group of women is an avid follower of Dona Tomasa, a rich widow. SO TRUE is an expression they always say in unison to buoy up and concur on Dona Tomasa’s malicious plans”.
