Sunday readings individual reflection

September 10, 2012 Leave a comment

From all the three readings, I could relate to the first the most. This is because it directly reflects the world we live in and it reminds us that people are inherently selfish. However, it also tells us that despite that, we can still hope and that we are in God’s favor should we avoid succumbing to their evil intentions. It shows us that the reason these people try to bring us down is because they cannot be as moral, and it is our fault if we succumb and stoop down to their level to entertain them.

Idea Blunder

IDEA 1 OCT 1-2

The start of this month was quite hectic for me. Since Xavier hosted the IDEA(International Debate Education Association) 1 competition, I had to help out in the organizing and running of it. The call time for us was supposedly 7 am, registration was originally gonna start by 7:30 or so but everything got delayed. When I arrived at 7 which was kind of late already, I found out that I’m the only one that was there. It was a blow to xavier’s reputation. As a form of damage control, I ran around, contacting people until I was able to get Ms. Santos down and start the registration. things started to go well until the tabs came. after the first round, it was my job to table the scores or tabs so it will be ready for match ups for the next. The reason for this was we wanted the competition to be fair, therefore we want the teams to go against those who matched them in skill.

To put it simply it was a fail. Our match-ups took long and there were inconstancies. Since there were two of us tabbing the scores, there were inconsistencies in the scores so we had to recheck and redo. it took long. the same thing happened for after the second round. IT was a good thing that a XDT veteran dropped by and gave us a hand by the third round which sped things up a lot. however, by the announcing of the overall breaks, we had one error in the order. A team that supposedly had 8 points ended up with 6, it was the fault of a typo because instead of inputting 3 points which equates to first place, a 1 was put. It did not affect the breaking teams though which was good.

Redemption came from the fact that we were able to finish the tabs with speaker scores early meaning that the Veteran, Weston and I stayed late in Starbucks finishing everything to be ready for release ASAP.

video reaction

In the three videos we watched, I was laughing in some parts of the first, felt awe in the second and was quite tensed in the third. The second clip, my eyes widened a bit when I saw the product of what he was working on. It was like an OMG moment. The third clip, Sophie’s choice made me quite tensed and gave me a sense of pity towards the child but it gave me a cathartic effect after.
