Janis says, KAYA!

This is the only piece of paper (literally) from college that I kept. I had it photocopied on acetate (and made it my background, hence the sheen on the photo). I placed the actual paper inside the pocket (see arrow), it is a submission for my Philippine Literature subject discussing my view of death. Naturally since it was a literature subject, we were given the freehand on how to discuss it (please visit my blog for the contents of the paper because it?s rather long - - I thought I might as well share it, just to explain my professor?s remarks). Anyway, for this LO, I used BearyBox?s Sketch#10 (was not able to upload my entry in their gallery though, I forgot about the deadline!!!). Thanks Ching for this great challenge. ;o)

The last project in my Philippine Literature subject was to stage an actual play in class - - I cannot recall the title of the play but I remember that the role assigned to me was that of a child prostitute. I?d (secretly) longed to act, but the idea daunted me. I never joined any dramatic arts group in school (even though I wanted to) as I prioritized the ?intellectual? clubs.Anyway, it was my last shot - - and I gave it my all. My group did not attend class after our performance, we were just so happy that it was over. It was only during the class card distribution (and return of a previously submitted paper) that I learned of my professor ?s (whose name I have already forgotten) feedback.This is the only piece of paper from college that I kept. It has been more than 10 years now, yet every time I read this I can?t help but smile and be reminded of the drama queen in me.
