In these ~crazy~ times, there are no assurances that online classes will be effective, but here we are. Every student has their own struggles in adjusting to online schooling. And each of them has their own way to cope with it.
For Alyanna Cabral, a law student from the Arellano University, doing song parodies is one way to make herself feel better amidst the stress of online classes, as well as to make other students feel that they’re not alone in this battle.
During quarantine, Alyanna started to upload parodies on Facebook. She did anime OSTs, ‘90s hits parodies about COVID-19 efforts in the country, and other socially relevant parodies. Recently, she released another one which is about online classes using Korean girl group Blackpink’s “Ice Cream” as the song.
In an interview with Alyanna, she shared that this online class parody started when her friends asked her to do one. The lyrics were all written by her and were all inspired by her friends’ struggles and even her own.
“Ang naging inspiration ko po ay personal experience, experience ng friends ko, at ‘yung mga nakikita ko po sa social media. Nag-aaral din po kasi ako ngayon so may parts doon sa song na galing sa experience ko sa online classes so far,” shares Alyanna.
With some lyrics like, “Not so good ang internet. Minsan brownout pa, awit,” every student will surely relate to the song, even those who are located in the provinces.
“May naririnig din akong kwento galing sa friends ko tungkol sa nararanasan nila sa online class, kung gaano ka-stressful, ganyan. May ilan akong nakikitang posts sa social media na nagpapakita ng estudyante na pumepwesto po sa labas ng bahay, sa ilalim ng puno, para makakuha ng signal habang nagkaklase.”
