This was one of the reasons I was so busy when the second semester started this year. We were tasked to come up with a good facade for our college for the Lantern Parade season which happens yearly just before Christmas break.
This year’s theme was “Pagmamahal at Pagkakaisa”. It was such a cheesy theme that it was hard to come up with something unique for it. But I’m pretty proud of my college mates,PT majors, OT majors, and fellow SP majors, for making it possible. :> 
Basically, we made a heart(gold because it’s our college’s 50th year) out of various recycled materials that was also made up of gears representing all the colleges in UP Manila. This represented the love and unity the theme asked for. We decorated our windows show the things SPs, OTs, and PTs do to help. The lights going around are supposedly arteries and veins that go around it and to the heart. The heart is our gift to the nation, our beloved Philippines because we are Iskolars ng Bayan.  And we had a gigantic letter to the Philippines explaining why this is our gift. So yeah. It is cheesy. HAHA.
I think I shall explain further in a text post. :P

Rain delay…

Rain delays are known to wreck momentum during tennis matches. I know this not because I’m such a good tennis player that I get to do matches that have them and all, but because I am an avid fan of Nole. ♥ And it shows how his momentum is greatly affected by these rain delays. But this post isn’t really about tennis and my love for the sport and Nole, but more of academics.

The last week has been a week of rest. The southwest wind or Hanging Habagat as we call it in our country has ruined my studying momentum. From the end of June til just before last week, I have been able to study every night and early morning to the point of only getting 3-4 hours of sleep a day. I had the momentum. But man, it is hard to get it back because of last week.

I know that everything has a purpose. And maybe God wanted me to rest a bit, but it really encouraged the lazy fool and procrastinator in me. But I do thank God for the rest He gave me, and for protecting us from the freaky rain that caused a week’s suspension of classes. It’s scary how it wasn’t even a typhoon/storm. It was just a wind that brought scary rains and ruined much of Manila. Floods were scary, but fortunately, we weren’t affected by it. Well, physically, that is. 

Ughh. I don’t even know what I’m complaining about. My momentum or the fact that I got too much rest or just having to deal with the hell of tons of make up classes ahead. Oh well. Now that I am well-rested, too well-rested I think, too much for my liking, I need to find that momentum of studying again. And what better way to find momentum again than cramming? I’ve got an exam tomorrow, a practical one. So yes, I’m supposed to know how to assess a client’s speech perception and production disorders tomorrow. And yes, I’ve only started today. 

So this is me. The real me. Candid me. The lazy procrastinator Anna. Never was a great student. Fortunately, I’ve got a great God. :>

Cleft Palate

So, what have I been up to the past few weeks? I have been studying, yes, I know I am already drowning in my supposed “sea of knowledge”. Hahaha. But when it comes to the College of Allied Medical Professions, your knowledge never seems to be enough.

One thing I have studied recently, and I SORTA did a lot of research on this compared to the other questions given to me, was the effect of cleft palate on a person’s speech.

First of all, what is cleft palate?

** I chose an animated picture because some people might find it disturbing if they see the really bad cases of cleft palate. Photo not mine.

I need to seriously visit the CAS lib this sem just before I leave it. :))

Speech Pathology

Speech Pathology. What is speech pathology? Many people actually have no idea what that is. It’s a profession. A future profession of mine, maybe. And whenever they ask me what course I’m taking up in college, I tell them that. And their response? Ano un? (What’s that?)

It’s funny, the responses I get from people. It’s very diverse. Some would just say, “Ahhh.” just to show that they get what it is, but obviously, they don’t. Some would try to clarify, and they’ll be all like, “So you’re going to pursue your theatrical dreams?” or “So you won’t pursue medicine anymore?” Some think it’s some sort of English course, or something related to public communication. Well, I think maybe it’s the word speech in it.

To be honest, I never heard of it until I started filling up application forms for college during my senior year in high school. And I was uncertain of what I was going to take up for my pre-medical course. I’ve always trusted that the University of the Philippines would give top-notch education in the medical field, so I wanted to get into UP Manila. However, I had no idea what pre-med I should take.

Everyone says that Biology would be the best pre-med. My parents warned me, however, that if I decide not to study anymore after graduating from my first course, I would end up teaching with that course. I’m not degrading teachers or anything, but to be honest, it’s hard to make a career out of teaching. You would need doctorates and all kinds of titles to have a good paying job. So they told me to take a course that could give me a job that can almost be as prestigious as being a doctor.

SO. What is speech pathology? It’s SPEECH THERAPY, basically. We, as future speech pathologists, would go hand in hand with other medical professions. See? It’s in the medical field. So I can still become a doctor. We would work with physical and occupational therapists in helping those who’ve lost specific abilities gain them back. In speech therapy, we get to help those who have gone through strokes and have a hard time speaking. We help persons with disabilities and special needs express themselves. 

Our scope: COMMUNICATION AND SWALLOWING

Yes, swallowing. :)) Because there are certain people who have dysphagia, a problem in swallowing where their muscles are too weak to facilitate proper swallowing. Basically, the muscles for speech production and swallowing are related.

So they say, our profession would be very fulfilling. I still can’t say so for myself because I still have no idea what I will be after graduation. I do hope, that at the end of this year, I will finally come to realize the greatness of this profession. Seriously, to be honest, I don’t want to be a speech pathologist. I really really really really reeeeeaaallyyyyy want to become a surgeon. But I know that I’m in this course for a reason just because God let me pass it. And I know that whether or not I get to go to med school after, I will be happy in my future career. And IF I do practice Speech Pathology, I know God has a perfect reason why.

Right now, honestly, I haven’t achieved that peace of mind of His perfect will for me. But I do hope someday, I would really just thank Him for placing me in a course that a lot of people(those who have awareness of it) would really want to get into.

I just want to be able to endure the difficulties of my college life with passion because if you ask me where my passion level is from the time I started college, it is waaaaay down there. Ever since majors started, I have been doubting my future profession and whether or not this is for me. But as I’ve said, I know God has a purpose for everything. I still have to work on my passion for it, though. But I know I will. I’m certain of it. In His perfect time. :)

The awesome professor.

I’m sitting at my desk at 1am reviewing for more exams next week. One of those exams is the dreaded Language exam. You see, of all subjects, it’s Language I am having the most difficulty with because the concepts are so abstract and hard to grasp. I like subjects which are more scientific and stuff. 

So as I am sitting here, being groggy and all, since it’s so early in the morning, I don’t fall asleep. In fact, I lost all forms of grogginess. WHY? Because I am reading on the famous SLPM (Speech and Language Processing Model) topic by Ma’am Jean Christine Vela, CSP-PASP. It is based on Nation and Aram’s Model. AND BOY, does she explain it well.

I never get any topics on Language on the first lecture. I usually have to read it again after the lecture to be able to grasp the concept. I am just amazed when I remember the first day she lectured in our Language class. For the first time, I was in tune with the lecture and I actually got it. And as I am reading up on it again for next week’s exam, I find the true essence of REviewing. Unlike other topics where my reviewing is actually just learning it first. 

So guys, if you are taking up Speech Pathology in the Philippines, whether it be in UP or UST(but I’m not sure if she talks there as well), if Ma’am Jean guest speaks and lectures for a class, be prepared to get your minds blown. SHE IS AWESOME. :D

BEWARE of seizures…

What I learned in our MRL class yesterday was that anyone is susceptible to seizures. Especially those who are:

  1. 15 - 20 years of age (college students, here in the Philippines)
  2. Sleep-deprived (especially if you’re from UP Manila’s white colleges)
  3. Stressed (I think any college gives this to students)
  4. Not eating well (Stress and exhaustion tends to make students either have no time to eat at all or eat unhealthy junk food for comfort food)

THEREFORE. I conclude. College wants to kill us all… Or at least give us seizures, that is.

Yes, our vocal folds are nasty-looking. Specially when not drawn. O.o

Phonation(voicing) is a very complicated process. Can’t believe that i never even thought about how much work I put my larynx(voice box) to, considering that I acted and sang throughout my elementary and high school life. 

From now on, I shall appreciate all the work my larynx has done and what it’ll continue to do for me. :P

I. AM. LAZY.

Seriously. I have to get over this laziness of mine. I never get to do my advanced readings like I planned. WHYYYYY. :(

My schedule this semester is so free. I’ve got class for only half the day from Wednesdays to Fridays.(But I never had Wednesday class til this sem, so it sorta is a disadvantage?) But then MAJORS. God. Majors. WHY. WHY. WHYYYYYY.

I don’t even want to go into that whole bitterness issue of my blockmates and me with our very first major subject last sem, but GAAAAAAAAAAAH. WHY. Majors should make you strive harder, but why does it make me so alsdkfj;adlsfj lazy? 

How I wish I could just go and read with the free time I have on those half days to help aid me with my studies. But then again, I realize, those three flippin’ hours of one major subject a day on Mondays and Tuesdays make my mind shut down. Sabaw. It drains the life out of me. I don’t know. Am I burning out? Or am I just plain lazy? I hope I’m just lazy, because God, SP is a good course. It is. I know it is. Or I’d like to believe it is.

CAMP Cartoon Christmas Party
We didn’t really attend our college Christmas party because we had our own block lunch. But we decided to dress up for the fun of it. I mean, we already brought the clothes with us.
This is me dressing up as Alice and my friend as Pucca. Yes, my apron’s a bit of a failure because I had to improvise since I only had half an apron. So I had to pin it to a sando. :))))) 
Our other friend dressed up as Garu, but I still haven’t fixed up the other photos. More to come!
Erm. I looked at the picture again and I just thought, it’s so not fair how my friend has lost so much weight. GOD. That has to be me soon. :)) Hopefully. But for now, I’m happy with myself. :))

This was one of the reasons I was so busy when the second semester started this year. We were tasked to come up with a good facade for our college for the Lantern Parade season which happens yearly just before Christmas break.
This year’s theme was “Pagmamahal at Pagkakaisa”. It was such a cheesy theme that it was hard to come up with something unique for it. But I’m pretty proud of my college mates,PT majors, OT majors, and fellow SP majors, for making it possible. :> 
Basically, we made a heart(gold because it’s our college’s 50th year) out of various recycled materials that was also made up of gears representing all the colleges in UP Manila. This represented the love and unity the theme asked for. We decorated our windows show the things SPs, OTs, and PTs do to help. The lights going around are supposedly arteries and veins that go around it and to the heart. The heart is our gift to the nation, our beloved Philippines because we are Iskolars ng Bayan.  And we had a gigantic letter to the Philippines explaining why this is our gift. So yeah. It is cheesy.

I still have to work on my passion for it, though. But I know I will. I’m certain of it. In His perfect time. :)

I’ve always had a thing for colors. :P

When I study, it has to be colorful for me to remember it more. This is the pinna from my anatomy book. But I colored this more of for the reason of not getting bored. I get distracted too easily making it really hard for me to study. :| :))

CAMP Cartoon Christmas Party
We didn’t really attend our college Christmas party because we had our own block lunch. But we decided to dress up for the fun of it. I mean, we already brought the clothes with us.
This is me dressing up as Alice and my friend as Pucca. Yes, my apron’s a bit of a failure because I had to improvise since I only had half an apron. So I had to pin it to a sando. :))))) 
Our other friend dressed up as Garu, but I still haven’t fixed up the other photos. More to come!
Erm. I looked at the picture again and I just thought, it’s so not fair how my friend has lost so much weight. GOD. That has to be me soon. :)) Hopefully. But for now, I’m happy with myself. :))
