Summary of required work for courses currently being taken crazy commentary included
Kas 205 - book review (Face of Empire by Frank Golay: makapal na libro pero sabi ni Prof Jose yung part lang relating to the Commonwealth), class report (PKP: Partido Komunista ng Pilipinas, may readings na ako nung 1st sem kay Prof Ambrosio, magbasa ulit!), term paper (eto yung medyo tricky --plano ko yung Libel Laws of 1936 and the reactions of media-- archival research na naman ito!)
Kas 110 - research paper - bigla lang naman kaming tinanong ni Prof Llanes kung anong gusto naming topic sa research...hello! kauna-unahang meeting, research topic agad? ni wala pa ngang syllabus eh...thus all the topics came off the top of my head...Prof Llanes went around and asked each of us what our prospective topics were. The first I gave about the Audiencia was not to his liking. The next one -- about crime and punishment during the Spanish colonial times -- was the topic Prof Llanes approved of. A few moments of reflection made me realize I picked a VERY difficult topic. To think that Spanish colonial period spanned 3 centuries...ubuson ko ang tatlo ka siglo? haha buti na lang may sources maski konti...
I'm planning to concentrate on the 19th century...tentative title: Law and Order: 19th Century Manila. Or pwede ring Crime and Punishment in 19th Century Philippines. The latter title inspired by a book by a Russian writer, the former inspired by a TV series) Kung crappy ang paper, bumawi sa title! hahahaha
Meron pang additional instructions si Sir sa paper:
should have at least 20 sources...(P*t**ng*n*! Tinalo pa ang Kas 199.2...kasali ba primary sources? No leo y intiendo mucho español! Mierda!will my sources even reach the prerequisite number? Grabe ka naman sir...talo pa namin ang gumagawa ng Master's thesis)
dapat isulat sa wikang Filipino (Tangina parang Kas 112!writing in Filipino has never been my forte daw kabalik-awot para sakon hehe) Prof Llanes! Magaling po akong mag-Ingliiiiiis! wahahahaha!
Pero in fairness...may fieldtrip raw ang class sabi ni Sir hehehe
Kas 226 - wala pa. bukas pa kami magkikita (ulit) ni Prof Jose
Wala na 'kong sex life nito! wahahahahahaha!
