the place to be




Title: The Place to be.

What is journ? For me journ is home. It is the elective where no one gets left behind. It’s a place where a student is free to express his/her thoughts on a certain topic.

Journ gives me a sense of originality. Why cause in every competition. I am challenge to think of something different. In journalism, you have to think of ways on how to make your piece different yet interesting but the rules still are still imposed. Difficult huh? That’s journ for you.

I cant complain cause for me journ is the place to be. This may seem shallow ,but for me your officially cool in JCA if you are in journ.

Journ for me was the greatest part of my 3rd year life. Though i did somethings that I’d have to regret, like not passing my requirements on time. Not caring at all what happens when im not around or simply not being a good student to Mr. Albelda.

When I was in 3rd year I was lucky enough to be able to come to the mini-press con.,division and regional competions. At first I didn’t know why Mr.Albelda choose me. I thought because I have a gift or something. Maybe I did but maybe as time grows old my other classmates developed their gifts in writing to.

Honestly im happy where I am in journ today, Cause I know I deserve it but honestly I wouldn’t mind taking a step forward if you know what I mean.

When I joined journ. I didn’t know what will happen. I mean when I was in 1st and 2nd year highschool I used to write columns in Roosevelt collage. I thought both the nws paper wer the same and I was wrong big time. Ignite is a hundred timebetter than roosevelt’s publication.

I thought I’ll get by like I did in Roosevelt. I was wrong, in Roosevelt I get grades of 93 in English for my participation I journalism. But with Mr.J I can’t do that.

What I love about journ is that I get to do what I want and that is taking pictures and writing news. I also love radio broadcasting.

Journ gave me some unforgettable memories that I wouldn’t trade for anything. I love it when we go out of the campus. I love our field trip. I love the time we interviewed mr. Jeffrey Jeturian and imma cried. I love the time Mr. J came by my house to interview my tita. I love it when my tita said that Mr.j is the youngest yet most prepared journalist who ever had an interview with her and she’d had interviews with so many professional journalist she even had an interview with MANY “pacman” PACQIUAO. It made me proud as his student to be hearing that from my tita.

Of course if there are so many good times I can’t help having bad time as well. Like the time we went to SM north and someone almost had a chance to steal my cell phone. But my insinct got the best of me and I actually screamed at the girl. I also experienced having a low mark in journ.

But to be honest I wouldn’t replace journ for anything. Journ is in the list of my favorite things.

That is why I think that journ is the place to be.
