Bosconian

Engraced with the Seal

I am a Bosconian, I feel proud and good everytime I proclaim that, I was first made a bosconian when I was in my first year of High school. It was the first time, I attended a all-boys school, no pretty flowers to fly around at. It was a culture shock to me because I am unfamiliar of how they interact with each other(especially I hailed from the City of Love). Nonetheless, I gained friends, friends whom I felt I would keep for all of my life. One day when I was exploring around the school, I felt the presence of the Holy Mother, as if cradling me in Her arms. It was a weird feeling but also a soothing one. I found myself in front of the chapel. I decided to walk in silence and genuflect at the altar and beheld the image of the holy mother as I turned to pray among the pews. From this day I have been bestowed the seal.

Carrying the Seal

Eventually, I had to transfer schools, I went to 2 different schools until I finished Highschool. To myself, I still felt I was a Bosconian, I never knew why exactly. As I entered College I went to a Baptist University in my home town. It was a wonderful experience for me along with the freedom I never really had back when I was in Manila. I still carry values that follow the a Bosconian. I lived by the great phrases: run,jump, shout but do not sin, and do your ordinary work, extraordinarily
with gentleness and prudence.

The Calling from the Seal

However, I was feeling that something is missing . One day my mother asked me if I wanted to go back to Manila, in weighing the benefits, my money was in staying, but I felt a certain calling to go back to Manila , go back to where my heart called me to, Don Bosco Technical College Mandaluyong and the Holy Mother

The Growth and living by the Seal

I have journeyed into my chosen path as a Computer Engineer in DBTC, I had an enlightenment that, Don Bosco doesn’t just teach us about the academic aspects, but more importantly the Values that Don Bosco endowed to his Pupils. As a legacy it is passed on to us.

Up until today, I still and will always try to live by my Seal and proudly say “I am a Bosconian.

This is my story,my journey,my Seal

workplace setting

The end of my OJT is fast approaching. I learned a lot of things even just for a short time. You’ll be surprised that a company isn’t defined by advanced equipments alone. Well it definitely surprised me and made me realize a lot of things about the workplace.

It’s really amusing to know that a company isn’t just defined by the advanced equipments alone, but rather the people behind those radio static and deafening engines. People are the most precious resource and the root of most of the aspirin popping action. The diverse personalities and methods are surprisingly well coordinated than expected. When they work comfortably they give their 100% plus more. Mainly in my stay at Panay Power Corporation, I learned more about people and how they do their work in amusing manners. The interaction between colleagues aren’t just professional, but rather family oriented. Each department or individual is dependent on another. You don’t have to be too serious of your work or you’ll end up going crazy.
