Accidentally in Print

I’d like to share some news with you people. Two of my posts here in my blog will appear in the official student publication of our university sometime in August. I think I find that very cute. The posts that will be published are Special Hopia, Special Siopao [posted here last July 23] and Bleeding Love [posted on [July 6]. The story behind the publication of these posts are pretty interesting.

Of course you still remember Special Hopia, Special Siopao, after all, it is my last post. I submitted it because I thought it was very cute and inspiring plus I think it is pretty obvious I am so in love with Po. I intended that it be a literary essay, but I learned that it was to be printed as a column, because after I edited it, it turned out that they find it very political, which fits the opinion page perfectly. The thing is, early this academic year, I already told the people in the publication that I did not want to have and continue my column [the name of my column for the past years have been Prinsesa’s Anatomy, same as my blog, FYI]. It was funny because when I saw the paper I submitted, the words column po ito, sori! [this is column material sorry!] plus a smiley because they already know I did not want to have a column, but as it turns out, I still have a column. Oh well, still that’s very cute. Imagine Kung Fu Panda as a column that highlights politics, that’s so cool! Even though it just happened by accident, “I’m blinded by its awesomeness”.

The next post Bleeding Love is also an accident. It was not supposed to be in the paper because one, I did not submit it and two, that post is very personal. But since Special Hopia, Special Siopao cannot make it as a literary essay, they had to find one, and it turned out that they liked Bleeding Love when they read it here. I think they find the conversation between my man and the Red Cross personnel very hilarious. If you haven’t read that I think you should, you can still find it here. It’s very funny. Last night, I told my man that Bleeding Love will be published and I think he was as surprised as I am. Oh well. I think we are the official love team of the university now with that post, though he doesn’t go there.

I don’t know how all of you can see the paper. Maybe I can scan it and post it! Hmm… I don’t know. I’d like you to see the illustration that accompany Bleeding Love. It’s very good!

What I really like about me being accidentally in print is the fact that I know for sure that I’d be able to reach out to more people, aside from you wonderful people who read my blog. See, I am amazed by the power of words to make people learn, and feel, and experience even the things outside their reality. I guess, I am just very happy to be able to do and share all this that I write, uh, I mean, type.

  10. Wowowow! Nangyari na din yan sakin. 🙂 Pero hindi accidental. Pinasa ko talaga, at hindi ako sa skul na yun nag aaral dahil nag transper ako. At ang saya-saya. Nakakapulpil. 😀

  11. when you mentioned ‘Po’ I thought,
    ‘hmmm, she can’t possibly be talking about
    Kung Fu Panda…’

    haha! I loved that movie!
    short but…. entertaining. truly.

    PS Congratz!

  12. That’s awesome. It’s always great to see one’s writing in print. It sets you apart, imo. 😀 And yeah, scan the illustration.

  13. Congratulations! You’re a star, and that makes you special (particularly in that post).

    Ma pa-publish din kaya yung mga “commenters” in that special entry? Sana hinabaan ko yung comments ko.

    Take it easy.
