Hey, it’s our faces on the newspaper!

Talk about excitement and shock! My fellow campus journ, Bellie, texted me two weeks ago asking if she could use the pictures I uploaded on Facebook of LSPCon ’12 for her article in Manila Bulletin. I said why not — it would be my greatest pleasure. A few days ago, I woke up to her text message saying that her article had been published in the campus section of the daily newspaper. I wasn’t exactly sure what photo she used, although I thought, most likely, it was of the speakers we had during the event — such as the prominent ones like Boy Abunda. Interested to read her writings and curious to see which picture was included, I headed to Mini-Stop to grab a copy. Much to my dismay, there were no copies anymore (as it was late afternoon already). But I was very fortunate to have gotten a copy for free (eh, not really!) at a store a hundred steps away.

As I took a glance of the paper, I was like, NO WAY.

Whooooooooooooa, our faces. On the national newspaper!

I was shocked. What I envisioned was a dark, candid, grainy picture of a resource speaker standing by the podium, with weird facial expressions and all. But no, it was our faces — it was us!

Bellie said that I would be given credits for the picture. Well, that was the one I was actually looking forward to — caption-caption, photo by Maita. Oh! Yeah, why not? I think that reading my name (rather than seeing my face, honestly) on a broadsheet would be the coolest thing ever. Well, it turned out there wasn’t any (eh, I’m not even a prominent figure to even begin with). But, hey, MB, a picture’s still a picture, right? 😀

Here’s the picture on Facebook:

You know the feeling that same picture’s found on the SD card of your camera and now it’s printed… on the national paper? Now I have something to tease them with! Ohhh, Raissa, YO’ FAMOUUUUUUUUS! Heh, I kid. We’re not… that shallow. Haha!

The title of the article was “My first press con” dated Friday, May 18, 2012.

Thank you, Bellie, for a good read! And thank you, Copo, for giving us so many opportunities! Another school year is heading on its way (well, sadly)… let’s do this!
