Write about UP

I just got an announcement from my profile, and it goes a little something like this:

"As part of UP's 100th year celebration, we are putting together '100 Kwentong Peyups', a series of columns which will appear in the Philippine Daily Inquirer and Philippine Star throughout the year. We invite all past students of any of the University of the Philippines ' units to submit their stories. Submissions should:

1. Be a maximum of 1,000 words
2. Be a personal experience and written in the 1st person
3. Emotionally engaging---funny, sad, scary, etc.
4. Make the connection between the story and a life lesson that serves you well today
5. If possible, please include an old photo/scanned memento

Please include your name, College or Unit and Course, and year you entered UP as well as your email address. If you remember your Student Number, even better.

Send your submissions to You will be notified via email if your story has been selected for publication or for use in other Centennial celebrations.

Submissions will be accepted starting January 1, 2008. Btw, please feel free to pass this on to other UP alumni."

So, what are you waiting for, all ye UP peeps? Share your best (and worst) experiences from within the august halls of UP Naming Mahal! Just don't write about how I terrorized my former students, okay? (LOL!) On the other hand, maybe you should. That would be great for my "terror teacher" persona. hehehe...

comment 1: I never thought of you as a terror teacher. Intimidating, yes, but not...terrifying. Frankly, you're just not the type to pull it off (cat-lover, doting mom?) Yet somehow I feel like I've done you a great disservice haha. Should I have not called you nice? Dang.

comment 2: Kaloka ang sountrack. I wanted to run slow-mo a la Will Ferrell by the time chariots of fire started playing.
