Happy Feastday to St. John Berchmans, S.J., our class's patron saint.

"John offered the type of the saint who performs ordinary actions with extraordinary perfection. In his purity, obedience, and admirable charity he resembled many religious, but he surpassed them all by his intense love for the rules of his order. "

"If I do not become a saint when I am young", he used to say "I shall never become one".
>>>>i have to get ready, our class will hear the mass at the Sacred Heart Chapel at 11 am. update on that later. (^_^)

Sa may QC: debate recap

After like a month of solitary confinement...i'm finally back. again. So, i'll skip the blah blah and i'll go straight to the point.

AdMu was great!!!!! the IISDC went well. Shivs and I (AdZU A) were the highest breaking provincial team, we broke at 3rd. For those of you who don't know what that means..after debating for seven rounds, at the break night (the night where they announce the teams that will move on to the octofinals), after Miriam and Xavier, we were the third team to break, out of 80+ British Parliamentary teams. This has been the highest rank that AdZU and possibly, Zamboanga, has ever reached. Weeeee!!!
Then, to the octos,and suprisingly, quarterfinals!!!!!! I was ecstatic!!!
Not bad for someone who just started debating last year. haha. Shivs was 3rd best speaker, beating more than a hundred debaters(woah). I was the 27th!!!! on my first national

But, we didn't make it to semifinals, but at least we managed to have a day for shopping!!!!
