ACTIVITY 1: To ensure the smooth flow of our vacation, I thought of the ASDAL methods to be applied in planning based on the mind map and the checklist that I made in my previous post.
ACTIVITY 2: I then shared the ASDAL methods with my classmate, Phoeboa, and we discussed it further.
When people talk about getaways, their mind drifts off to faraway places. They think of other islands, other countries, and even other continents. I used to think the same. However, after pondering more about it, I realized something. Why should my family go somewhere very far when there’s a place here in the Cordilleras where we could truly get away?
A getaway doesn’t necessarily mean that we have to go somewgere far. To me, a getaway is simply getting away from what surrounds us every day. The city, while full of life, is also full of noise, stress, pollution, and…
My ideal wallet isn’t the conventional square or rectangle wallet made of leather. Rather, it is a pouch made of thick and smooth cloth that could fit all my essentials. By essentials, the first two things I’m talking about are money and my phone. The rest of the contents are things that are not as necessary (probably because they can be found on my phone), but are present in my current wallet. The pouch is yellow, as it is my favorite color, and is big enough to contain money (both paper bills and coins), my phone, my school ID and…
Communication Planning, as both a science that is systematic, planned, and evidence-based and an art that uses creative strategies, channel mix, and tools/materials development, can guide both organizations and individuals to reach their goals by managing and implementing communication efforts. The simple mind map above should be able to cover the most important words to remember about Unit 1 of Module 1 for Communication Planning.
Of all the tests in all the courses that we had to take this semester, this screen test was probably the most challenging one for me. For starters, I’m not good at putting on make-up. And when I eventually learned how to apply those colored products on my face, it wasn’t for the camera. It took days of practice before I felt satisfied about how my face would look in front of a camera that captures all flaws and with so much lighting.
Here’s the result of all those days of frustration over my face and angry dabs on it with baby wipes:
This has been one of the most stressful things I’ve done, to be honest. While it is necessary for BA Communication students to learn to work in teams, doing so is in no way a walk in the park under flexible learning. For starters, the internet does not like to cooperate. Whether you’re uploading something, meeting with your group, or researching for your story, the internet will not let you do that as smoothly as you want. Additionally, your equipment would simply decide that, “Nope, not today.” My groupmates and I refused to give up, but it seems our crashing laptops were the ones giving up on us.
However, like everything else, we were able to finish our group MoJo. In this video, we report about democracy, voter education, media literacy, COVID vaccination, and a local community pantry. You can watch it here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1jgpkAwNhAbIfSjkhWi1HyEgDq_kYXAeh/view?usp=sharing
You can’t really shoot a perfect MoJo in one take. You’re human. You make mistakes. You go and try again. Here’s a version of my MoJo about the community pantry in our barangay that didn’t make it to the final cut of our group MoJo: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1IU8JRLZ95V1gK4W6KJJ0RulCTiOqjMYC/view?usp=sharing
Mobile journalism is one of the ways that we, BA Communication students, can practice our craft while limited by the pandemic. This MoJo contains a brief report on the two webinars in our program during this second semester.

Whenever I write personality profiles, I usually look for something that strikes me most about the person. In the case of Ada Marie Sibayan-Bédard, it was her general warmth as a person. There’s something about watching someone whose name you’ve heard and whose face you’ve seen countless times on television speak animatedly to you.
Back when I was in elementary school, I would always hear her extro spiel, “Ada Sibayan, ABS-CBN News,” whenever my mother was watching the television. I also used to watch her in the morning news before leaving for school. …
I made a 30-second PTC about Baguio City’s Public Information Office’s post on Facebook. Businesses and other establishments are encouraged to use pooled method when testing their employees.
