It’s frustrating to actually think that I am on my 2nd week in my internship at The Manila Times yet I haven’t published anything.
I am never good at writing straight news. I am aware of that, that’s why I really wanted to join the TMTC’s program. However, it was too late for me to realize I have to work my a$$ off to get 45 published articles. And I honestly have no idea how I can possibly complete that task within freaking two months — after my first internship, of course. Just imagine how insane this is.
You might say this is a good training ground and I could not disagree with that. My only concern is the capabilities of the students are limited — we are like trap in a game. We can win a diploma but we lose the chance to get in the company we wanted to be in the first place — again, because the requirement limits us to stick with the company that can provide and allow us to publish that number of articles.
I am not angry at anyone, I am just voicing out my opinion. Our chairperson, though, gave us a deal: publish one article about PUP in our respective companies. I guess if this were to happen, the student who can publish anything about our university can stop worrying about not finishing college. If only I can.. I’ll probably apply to my dream company without stressing myself to reach the quota.
I just feel sad.
And I am sorry, my dear blog, for posting unnecessary thoughts.
