5 things students do with their uniform and some…

Students who wear school uniforms everyday and feels so sick and tired wearing it like it was a lifetime obligation though it is only while schooling. Every students can relate with this problem.

Some do not want uniform change while some wanted to or even some of them do not want to wear uniform at all while some wanted to have uniform because they do not have enough clothes to wear in school and have a new outfit look every school days.

5 things what students do in their uniforms

1. They alter the required length of the skirt (girls) | Altering the required cut of the pants (boys)

2. Putting other accessories (beads, sequence, patches)

3. Students customize it. (polo / blouse)

4. Adding some “in” clothes (jackets  / socks / shoes)

5. Wearing different color of shoes, socks, skirts and others.

School uniform misadventures

When I was in college my uniform really sucks. It is! Everyday, upon travelling to school, there is someone will ask me if what year I am in high school and if I am a public school student.

My usual reply to them and smile, “Do I really like a high school student? Maybe because of my height and uniform. I am a fourth year college student in UST (University of Santo Tomas)”.

Right after I said those phrases, their eyes widened and laugh and say, “REALLY?! I thought you are only a high school student.”

Oh well, just look at this photo of me:

An old-fashioned uniform

While others schools / colleges / universities change uniforms to fit a new trend in school fashion and to flexibility of the uniform in or out of the campus. Old fashioned uniforms really sucks for others especially for those students who wanted to go out wearing nice and neat uniform tagging along the school name.

When I was in UST, the clamor for uniform change is so loud but the department do not want to change the traditional uniform because there is a “meaning” of what we are wearing for a reason.

I discovered that AB (Liberal Arts Department) uniform in UST was designed way back in 70s, 80’s, 90’s or even older.

Just take a look at this picture.

The evolution of AB uniform in UST

Uniforms is a universal identity

Wearing a uniform can put a person in a class or type which helps the people or the society to keep up things as they are and maybe maintain Karl Marx’s “class struggle”, where there is a proletariat and aristocrat.

Uniforms can help us determine who we are and what status we belong to.



It took ten years to…

It took ten years to… establish confidence to pursue a career and it took another thousand years to decide what path should I take because it is a life long journey.

After college, there is no turning back, I could only go ahead and make right choices for my life. I am a life perfectionist indeed but it is somewhat idealistic right? In life there is nothing perfect because shit really happens. Sometimes I thought everything is under control but sometimes at the end I am in a hurry.

Now my life is currently in a phase which I called, “It tool ten years too…”. I want to have a career in writing but I am good enough to be a writer? I am confident enough to let them read what I write? These questions frequently pops out in my mind and it drives me crazy and lose my confidence to take a chance. I know without trying anything I would not be able to know my strengths and weaknesses. So I need to conquer my fears, try everything, and do my best. I have to say YES I need to work!


Diffusion of minds

A lot today seem so fast, days, time, growing up and even life, we never know what comes after and what we have done before, until we realize it was too late to change and go back.

I am talking with my blog, I couldn’t post any blog posts since we started to write our research paper (Thesis). I’ve realized that there’s a lot to do but the time seems so fast.

I sleep at dawn and woke up at noon, it’s tiring and I want a proper disposition and make everything in a right course of time.

My mind seems to bow-up when I realized that everything changed so fast and it is so difficult to control it, The only thing that I need to do is to run. Run as fast as I could to make time for everything.

I don’t know what will happened after school, It was like a blind side of my future because it is another chapter of my life that I should take no matter what. I should make my own plans and make my own dreams. I should make my life easier than what I had before. I just want happiness. With a simple job and simple life, at least I am living but I will never change the way I dream and the way I want to reach my goals. I will not stop soaring higher. Higher than what people thought about me.

I want to go to Paris, France, Rome, Itsly, Florence, Italy and many more. I want to make time for everything for it seems life is so short to fool around and waste time.

Depleted Minds


depleted mind

Depleted minds, beautiful thoughts and clinging actions. This semester I have experienced “Ideas-on-mind-unprocessed-actions” that’s what I call with my never-ending sickness (I call it sickness, because I can tolerate that!) this is all about: I have something on my mind (a great idea perhaps) then it will turned out nothing because I never acted it out.

I am a kind of person who acted so random and never follow any schedules because every time I made schedule for the day I never carry out them unless I really need it to do by then.

Semestral break, a fun break isn’t it? I have a lot of sleep and talking. I have a lot of rest even my mind rested (not in peace).

Alright, on Thursday classes will resume and my mind will be off to thoughts academically and will bleed (ironically).

I am thinking of what I can do for my Tumblr site (www.ankrishds.tumblr.com) because I started putting quotations that came from me but it ended with nothing but re-blogging others posts. So, now I am thinking of new entries that I can publish through that site. first I want to publish photos, second I want to publish things that I made then lastly I want to create things that others may appreciate.

I have nothing blog seriously. I am so excited, nervous, bored, lazy. My mind is now depleted by the semestral break and I need sunshine of thoughts.

It’s November! and Christmas is coming, Waking up from the dream of Christmas of ’09, it feels like yesterday and yet next month it’s Christmas time!

I could not believe it that on February 2011 Taylor Swift is coming in Manila! so, this is it! the day that I am waiting for. I am happy for that but in a way I am sad for I don’t have and money to afford tickets but I will keep some money for that event.

Please don’t be in love with someone else, Please don’t have somebody waiting on you… – Taylor Swift (Enchanted)

Define Freedom

Weeks full of stressful days and now those weeks officially ended. Done with article exam and now I’m having my two days day-off (I’m waiting for this moment) I want to rest all day. I want to feel I am worry free human. stress makes me feel imprisoned on my own personality, It gives me so many reasons to give up and reasons to move on. Sometimes I feel so sick and tired. I want to jump into a cliff and be drop dead on any situations.

I need to read. I am not a born crammer but still I am cramming on so many things that I need to do.

I want to define Freedom.
I want to see those city lights. I want to fly. I want to shout my liberty. I want to create pictures in the skies. I want to feel freedom. I want to run from them. I want to go out and paint city walls with colors of freedom and full of heart creations.

I feel so suffocated and my personality has been abducted by time. I am in full of madness. I am wearing chains. I cannot move. I want to gain freedom. I want to feel frenzy.

Paintings. bright colors. daylight. sky. pictures. flowers.

I want to tell you something. tell that I want something to be painted in the wall of mine. Can you see those skies they are so blue. Hold these brushes isn’t it so nice? waving hand creates lines and patterns they comes from freedom.

Lets sleep together under the tree while the sun is overhauling it flares towards the surface of the earth.

Lets run! lets feel the cool breeze of rainy days. Pick flowers and smell it.

Hobby? Stress remover. abstract. Lets draw together and color the sky in different vibrant colors on paint palette. Lets use the sun, leaves, flowers, water and trees to come up with a beautiful life.

lets smile because frowning makes us feel old and older. Lets smile and laugh together with the sound of ocean reach us and like the infinity of universe that is undefined and measured. Lets feel the mystery of life. Lets love life for being sacred and simple.




Laughing out Loud!
Spanish time I was so sleepy and my professor told us what is the translation for “kiss me” it is “besa me” and out of the blue I said it to my seatmate and friend Bea then suddenly all my friends look at me and laugh so I was. :)

Late this after noon,
I was about to atteend my class but I dropped by at the org. room to see my classmate and I saw Jose my friends – friends :) he is a pro in playing guitar and he plays Taylor Swift songs so my friends and I sing a long with him. It was really really fun and somehow it made my day.

Early this morning I was informed by the fansite of Taylor Swift that she will have a live chat on July 20 at 5pm EDT, I am so excited about that news. apparently it will be on July 21 at 6am because I am residing here in the Philippines, she will talk about her third album and I am so excited to know what it is all about.

Generating the my ideas I come up to a point that what is the last thing happened to me today. I am sleepy right now or I just miss someone to talk to, maybe later when I am off to bed. :)

silly and bubbly friends create my wonderful life in college they somehow give colors on my sucking day in school.

my love (summer) he give strength and corrects me if I am going into a wrong path, he is my companion in the road I am currently taking in and I am so happy to have him.

There are people along the road that we take inspires us to do good things and we never know how long they will stay, treasure them like precious gems and take care of them so that they will never leave you behind and forget all about you.


Catch those butterflies.

No matter how hard I try to make an entry just to have an entry for June but I can’t. So now! July is here and I am going to make an entry I don’t know what topic but I am sure this is about my life.

I keep on staring the box of quick press for minutes and now I am starting to type what I am thinking right now. so many people conspires to have an inspiration but many have tried to stand alone but they just can do it.

I am going to better soon, I want to write an efficient story that people can relate, I want to make a move though I know little by little I can do it.
as my professor in Spanish1 said, “we all want to learn Spanish language in one day but it takes a lifetime to learn a language.” and I believe that to become a better one I need to pray and practice the craft.

I need to learn the craft I am taking in, I am not practicing witchcraft but I am practicing the craft of writing. So much expectations, so much pressures and it can kill me to death though I am still standing right in-front of anybody trying to move forward step by step a and soon those steps when I put them together it is a long journey of my life and it takes years to see the miles of my road and look back of what I have done.

Taking the life of a real journalist is not easy! I wonder why I am taking this course what I know is, I am half way dead in this.

Last Wednesday, my last class ends at 9 o’clock in the evening and my professor dismissed us thirty minutes early so we are glad to go home early. So, my friends and I are the last who leaves the class together with our professor. At first we are joking our professor to treat us for a snack, we don’t even expect that he will take it seriously, so we are saying goodbyes until he said, “ay goodbye? bye!?” so we are wondering why, it was just mean that he will treat us for a snack (it sort of a late snack and a dinner) so we eat then and had fun chatting.

so Thursday, I suppose to review because we will have a quiz but I am a bit lazy so in the evening I watch movie “The Back up plans” the movie is very good, I really enjoyed it. I remember the line of the guy in the movie, “Some things lasts FOREVER.” it just caught me in because the girl did not believe in forver and that guy making her realize that some things are forever. so lovely quote.

One life, One moment, One month. It’s been a long time since I blogged and now I am posting a blog and I am going to update this again. I am pretty busy with my classes I only have one day off and I am not happy with that. I need more time to adjust and to cope up with my schedules. I need to read a lot as in a lot, particularly newspaper because I need to learn how to write a news story and not like tis kind of story.

Hey summer! I miss you so much! I hope you are fine! No one is special than you.

I am learning to think, I am annoyed with my face that is full of pimples! arrrggh. I know I am complaining maybe you are laughing because of that complains, because sometime when I look in the mirror I see my pimples it just ruin my day though it is none sense to ruin my day because of my pimples.

Incredible June! What a hilarious month! full of adjustments and full of change. I am having my time to take things slowly and make plans ahead. I am wondering why I am so shocked why all my plans are gone, I know something good will happen, I don’t know when, I don’t know where or how I just know that I need to believe.

I feel like I am in a full whirlwind and I cannot grasp everything that is happening around me. I am stuck inside of it and I am in a full blown in magnitude waves of wind. (Oh! that’s how I describe my month of June) Now at this moment I am taking time to make everything going to be fine.
