As a Journalism student, I have to know the code of ethics not only by mind, but also by heart. That’s what my professors have told me.
A Journalist must always remember and should keep in mind everything that is stated in the code of ethics for us not to be in the danger zone. I would like to share you the Journalism Code of Ethics in the Philippines formulated by Philippine Press Institute and National Press Club.
I. I shall scrupulously report and interpret the news, taking care not to suppress essential facts nor to distort the truth by omission or improper emphasis. I recognize the duty to air the other side and the duty to correct substantive errors promptly.
II. I shall not violate confidential information on material given me in the exercise of my calling.
III. I shall resort only to fair and honest methods in my effort to obtain news, photographs and/or documents, and shall properly identify myself as a representative of the press when obtaining any personal interview intended for publication.
IV. I shall refrain from writing reports that will adversely affect a private reputation unless the public interest justifies it. At the same time, I shall fight vigorously for public access to information.
V. I shall not let personal motives or interests influence me in the performance of my duties, nor shall I accept or offer any present, gift or other consideration of a nature that may cast doubt on my professional integrity.
VI. I shall not commit any act of plagiarism.
VII. I shall not, in any manner, ridicule, cast aspersions on, or degrade any person by reason of sex, creed, religious belief, political conviction, cultural and ethnic origin.
VIII. I shall presume persons accused of crime of being innocent until proven otherwise. I shall exercise caution in publishing names of minors and women involved in criminal cases so that they may not unjustly lose their standing in society.
IX. I shall not take unfair advantage of a fellow journalist.
X. I shall accept only such tasks as are compatible with the integrity and dignity of my profession, invoking the ?conscience clause? when duties imposed on me conflict with the voice of my conscience.
XI. I shall conduct myself in public or while performing my duties as journalist in such manner as to maintain the dignity of my profession. When in doubt, decency should be my watchword.

Love does not choose people, nor choose the time to be fallen in love. But love does only one thing— connecting two persons in an unexpected time.
Miles Ryan’s life was a mess after her wife— Missy Ryan, died in a tragic incident. She was hit by an unknown driver, which still, is not yet known. Miles is a Sheriff at the County. Two years have passed but Miles still doesn’t know who is responsible for Missy’s death. It haunted him for two years. Until he met Sarah Andrews, Jonah’s teacher.
They met when Sarah asked Jonah to bring his father at school to talk. Months have passed and their relationship becomes deeper. They fell in love with each other. Two years, Miles have been brokenhearted, and now, Sarah made his heart whole again. But there is one thing that led their relationship to a rough road. Miles knew who Missy’s killer is— Brian Andrews— the brother of his girlfriend.
Miles was so angry, full of hatred. But in spite of the information he got, he didn’t let Brian to be in jail. He talked to Brian and said that no one should know what had happened, what he did, even the persons close to him, people he will meet in the future including his wife to be and his children. And that, Miles and Sarah got back together happily with Jonah.
Nicholas Sparks is really a master when it comes to novels. I don’t know but, there is something in his skill that is so unique.
One thing I noticed in his novels is that he often uses the same names such as Jonah– and that I knew it’s the name of his son. Cool huh? Well, at first I thought it was Sarah who killed Missy when I read the plot in the back cover of the book. But as I read the story, I knew it’s not her but it’s related to her. When Miles met Sarah’s family, that’s when I knew who’s responsible for Missy’s death.
What else could I possibly say to these wonderful sights I’ve seen on the way to the beach?
Last Saturday, we went to Batangas (again) to spend a one day vacation with my relatives. Take note: that trip was the very first time that we spend an out of town trip with our relatives. We rarely do that because most of the times, if we’re just alone (our family), we’re with my Mom’s/Dad’s friends. So, I was really excited when my mother and my aunt planned this trip. I was really looking forward to it.
I’m so lucky that I live in the Philippines because we have 7,107 islands to enjoy every summer! I am not a beach kid because I don’t want my feet getting wet with pebbles or mud or anything. But every time we go in a beach, I am really excited. Seems confusing, right? I am confused too, I don’t understand myself. Hahahaha. Anyways, I just want to share with you what could be seen on the way to the beach where we’d swim around.
Don’t you just love the color of the water? I fell in-love with it! These pictures below remind me of the Underground River in Puerto Pricesa, City in Palawan (too bad I didn’t have any picture of it to share )
We were so amazed at this huge rock. If you would stare at it, you would notice that it looks like something that was peeled off because of the details (at least? Hahaha).
Other beach resorts. You know? You could see a number of resorts around the town so you would have a lot to choose from.
I remember the days when you scolded me in front of many people,
I can’t forget how embarrassed I was that time to see them staring at me.
Those days you told me I was wrong and I need to grow up,
Made a way to my mind that strikes my heart.
I remember the day when I said to myself
“She’s not the mother I want to have”
You don’t have to tell me that it’s wrong because I know that.
I, too, is not the daughter a parent would wish to have.
But the world is ironic.
We were together.
In spite of all the things we had confronted,
We still managed to see in each other’s company.
I am so ashamed to have a mother that is so caring and all that wants is the best for a child like me.
I do not deserve a mother like that.
For a girl like me, I am the worst daughter you could think of.
I am really sorry Me, for being such a brat girl.
And Ma, I’m sorry if I can’t tell you personally how lucky I am and how grateful I am to have a mother like you. I may not be the affectionate daughter that will show you every minute how much I love you and Papa, but I can sure you that my love for you will be endless.
So to all the mothers out there, HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!

Sometimes people don’t understand
The promises they’re making when they make them,” i said.
Isaac shot me a look. “right, of course.
But you keep the promise anyway. that’s what love is. love is keeping the promise anyway. don’t you believe in true love?”
-― Remember this quote? If this seems familiar to you, you’ve already read John Green’s The Fault In Our Stars. Or maybe, you’ve read my post before.
A typical teenage love story of Hazel Grace Lancaster and Augustus Waters but not a typical story you’ll ever know. Sounds confusing, right? It’s a typical teenage love story because it involves two teenagers that fell in love because they’ve met at a certain place and at a certain moment, but not a typical love story because they fell in love though, they have flaws and a life that made them struggled.
Hazel has a stage four Thyroid Cancer since she was 13 years old but has managed to live on. And here goes August or “Gus” for short, who was a former basketball star player and lost his leg because of osteosarcoma. They met at a support group that involves people who survived or still living with cancer.
At first, Hazel didn’t want to have a deep relationship with Gus, knowing that she has a stage four cancer that might just give Gus more struggles and pain. But when Gus wished to ” The Genies”– a fictionalized character of Make A Wish Foundation, to fly them to Amsterdam, Netherlands to see Peter van Houten, the author of Hazel’s favorite book An Imperial Affliction. He made that wish because Hazel wasn’t satisfied on the ending of the book and wanted to know what had happened to the characters, personally!
Hazel met a lot of unexpected happenings while they were in Amsterdam. And the one that surprises her more was when they went on a date and that’s the time when she knew she like Gus and wanted to pursue a relationship with him.
Gus knew that his cancer got back but didn’t tell Hazel about it because he didn’t want to ruin Hazel’s feelings but Hazel knew about it. Gus had several treatments but they both know that he will not live long enough.
The ending of the story is great because if it’s Hazel, it’s expected. John Green successfully made the twist of the story. I love the structure of the story on how it was written. John Green, you’re the best!
I hope you guys will read it too. It’s definitely a must-read and highly recommended!
