Cha! Baka maiyak ako!

I don't even know why I bother going there. It's like I want to torture myself. People have told me not to visit anymore because they know the effect that it has on me.

Before you think that this is some big, national issue, it's not. But it is an issue that's close to my heart. I am talking about the Ateneo heart and spirit. Although I think the "all-out support" for Larry has gone overboard, I still haven't underestimated the heart of an Atenean. Non-Ateneans have always misunderstood an Atenean and think they are all about parties and fashion and fancy cars and suffering from superiority complex.

Admittedly, there are some people like that. But most Ateneans are some of the most passionate people out there, whether it be in business, politics, the arts, sciences and/or the medical field. That's probably why when non-Ateneans do meet the Ateneans, they are genuinely surprised because they are not who they thought they were. These Ateneans are so passionate about making a difference. People don't hear about them because doing the work is enough. Letting the whole world know about it is not very important for them. There are some Ateneans who are some of the most down-to-earth people I know.

I am Atenean and I am proud to be an Atenean. I will always be thankful to Ateneo because my Ateneo education shaped the person that I am today. I learned to think for myself, to be socially-aware, to take action, to work, to lead others by serving them, to love God above all else.

I don't really respond to "false allegations and accusations" against Ateneans but when they've gone too far, I always put these people in their place. It's just so sad that they don't practice the education the education that they received. I mean, what kind of education teaches its students to backstab, misjudge and accuse another group of people?

I consider myself an Atenean and I will always consider myself an Atenean. And if anyone dare cross us falsely again, I will be prepared to meet them head-on. I have the utmost respect for every person but when they show themselves to be ignorant, judgmental and narrow-minded, they better prepare for the consequences of their actions.
