Chicken no more. I finally did it. I took my oral exams in my Property class yesterday.
I passed.
I'm deliriously happy.

How (not) to get on the list. "What list?" you ask. Well, news reports in Manila have been speculating on the truth behind a supposed "look out" list drawn up by the US Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Central Intelligence Agency. The list consists of six million names of Filipinos who may be, either wittingly or unwittingly, involved in terrorism.
Wow! Six million names. How'd they manage to put together such a long list? Better yet, how exactly do you "look out" for six million people? That would easily take about a million or two snoops. George Bush sure has money to burn. The Texas cartel must be very very good to him.
What bothers me, however, is what this says about Filipinos. Are they now saying that we are a nation of terrorists? We can't even boast of weapons that could wipe out a whole building. How can we possibly terrorize the world?
There are armed groups in the Philippines, but most of them (except maybe for the Abu Sayyaf) have legitimate issues to raise. Only in the US can you find people shooting other people (read:snipers, teenagers shooting up schools, people going "postal, so to speak) just for the heck of it.
George Bush and his minions should invest in mirrors.
They really need to take a good look at themselves.

I don't know what to make of this. It seems like it was written in jest, yet there's also a hint of seriousness towards the end. I got this through e-mail. It's asking people to vote for Fernando Poe, Jr. (FPJ), the Philippine's biggest action star. He is being prodded by many people to run, ostensibly to save the country from politicians.

I would have though people would be allergic to actors now, following the Erap Estrada debacle. People really never learn.

Please vote for FPJ as president. He is a very
sincere person, intelligent, witty, and most of all
trustworthy.

His record speaks for itself. As the "Panday", he
vanquished evil forces and as "Totoy Bato", he worked
his way to glory through his ringside boxing skills.

And who can forget the tenderness he showed to reel
daughter Judy Ann Santos in the film "Isusumbong Kita
sa Tatay Ko?" and to Julie Vega in "Durugin si Totoy Bato!" Like in
the movie, FPJ will protect us, like he is protecting his own children.

FPJ is also a happily married person, and his love for
Susan Roces is legendary. He is not a two timing man,
and only has eyes set for his Susan. He is not
involved in any scandals affecting his married life.
His dedication to his wife will serve him well as he
will dedicate his life for the country.

FPJ is also the fastest gun wielder in the country. No
one, not even the Abu Sayyaf and the NPAs, can beat
him to the draw. Even mining syndicates are afraid of
him as shown in "Ang Pagbabalik ng Probinsiyano." He
is a staunch environmentalist, as he cleans up
Palawan's environment in "Hagedorn." Our brother Muslims only have
high regard for him, as he never had any film which had anti-Islam
sentiments.

And most of all, in times of crisis when the
pandesal's cost is rising, FPJ has only one thing to
say: "Walang Matigas na Tinapay, Sa Mainit na Kape!"

Give the guy a chance. The worst thing we can do to
this country is elect a politician as president. We
complain of an actor's antics but okay lang sa atin na
ninanakawan tayo ng asawa ng isang economista, o ng
isang sundalong nagtapos sa west point, or worse, a bar topnotcher
from UP who went on to become an ugly, unburied corpse. Bakit?
I bet the only reason we have is because they have a
degree from Ateneo, UP, and West Point, while FPJ
comes from an unheard of school, if ever he did
graduate.

Hail to the Chief!
Hail to the King!
Vote FPJ for President!

You can call me chicken. I was supposed to take my oral exams in Property yesterday but I backed out at the last minute. I even made the professor laugh when I told him "Sir, I think I'll ask for a re-sked." He was already turning on the lights in his room and getting ready for the one-hour grilling that he was supposed to give me.
"Why did I back out?" you ask. Well, it's not that I really an a coward. Most of the time, I'm not. But sometimes, you just have to be honest with yourself and admit when you're not in a position of strength. My "unreadiness," so to speak, became very evident to me as I was going through the concepts of Usufruct, but it was the topic of Lease that drove the point home.
I wasn't ready at all.
So now I'm hoping to go back there on Wednesday to face my fears and redeem myself. I hope by that time I'll be able to take on Easements and Servitudes without almost dying from a heart attack.
