Just this morning, when I opened my Facebook and logged in to my gmail account, I got two exciting news. With these two exciting narratives, one was just heart warming and the other one gave me  a tensed feeling.

Wanna know what are these? Read on.


I finally found out who will be my MA Thesis Adviser. Yes, it's none other than Dr. Lex. He was my professor last semester. He handled subject on DEVC263: Communication of Scientific and Technical Information. Based on my experiences with him, despite the odds that you'll undergo to complete his class requirements, you will seriously learn a lot from him. Imagine, I was able to produce a Baby Thesis in his class.

Right now, I have a mixed feelings over his assignment as my thesis adviser. I am excited to be under his supervision. However, I am also scared of what will happen for this semester. Hopefully, I will able to meet Dr. Lex's standards which I just encountered and met last semester. Maybe he'll have a different approach for this semester. But of course, academic excellence is a must!

I know that I am on my last semester before I graduate. Hopefully, I will be able to make it.

There's another catch. We need to at least publish our research at UP Open University's Publication. I know this is a good opportunity for students. Plus, it will push you to give your best and publish a well-written research.

Gooooodluck! Fight!


Yours Truly is featured in a blog named OFYuppies. This creative and special blog just recently opened. It's authored by my college friend Jel or Jellyn, who is working as a producer and writer for TV, Film and Advertising in Dubai, United Arab Emirate.


So maybe you're wondering what is OFYuppies? Interestingly, OFY stands for Overseas Filipino Young Professional. "Yuppies" is a colloquial term to refer to young upwardly mobile Filipino professionals belonging to age group which is roughly 21-35 years old with independent spending power.

OFYs are Overseas Filipino Workers too. However, OFYs are a more specific group of the much younger and dynamic young Professionals who go abroad to seek for better career opportunities.

OFYuppies aims to build a strong network of young Filipino professionals working abroad through relevant global news, trends and feature stories.
