Isang akrostik na tula as inspired by Joselito D. delos Reyes

Funny Grave by Moon Hui Lee

Pagdating sa paggamit ng mga salita,

Ang pagpili ng mabuting salita ay mahalaga.

Grabe ang epekto kapag mali ang paggamit ng isang idyoma,

Sana sinabi mo nalang na “A blessing in disguise” imbes na “A blessing in the skies”.

Usapang pasalamat ito, hindi isang obitwaryo.

Lalong lalo’t na kapag ang paksa ay para sa iyong jowa.

Aasa ako na sa pagbasa mo nito, hindi pa huli ang lahat.

Tayo’y magsanay; tamang wika para sa tamang paksa!

With online classes, it’s a valid excuse now.

Good Morning by Defaced

As a child born into the digital age, I found myself exposed and happily engaging in computing devices. Most oftenly because of the vast amount of games it offers to cure our boredom. However, the idiom “an eye for an eye” is taken too literally here: you use your eyes to spend time playing, and in return, your eyes slowly deteriorate due to the unfiltered amount it is exposed to. This can cause a multitude of inconveniences such as brain fog and technostress.

With the introduction of online classes, students like me are forced to expose my eyes to the computer for at least 4 hours a day. These can prompt the aforementioned symptoms and can gradually become worse. That is why it is important to regulate our computer usage and take breaks whenever possible.

Captain obvious, we have to modulate the virus too

Before COVID-19 struck the world, people were getting increasingly scared of multiple terrorism acts. People were getting anxious about which country would be threatened, then bombed multiple times next. What they didn’t know was something smaller than war’s tiniest ammunition is about to cause greater havoc than the world has ever experienced: the Coronavirus. To make things worse, global warming has sped up the release of prehistoric viruses preserved in the Arctic’s deepest icecaps; the kind where scientists say it would be impossible to heal from with current technology.
