6 Org Lessons That Will be Useful When You Start Your Internship
It's no secret that the org life is an avenue for students to practice what they've learned and apply it in the working environment they will eventually be in after they graduate. At the same time, your experience in the org also gives you lessons that sometimes classes cannot provide. That's what makes college life so colorful and life-changing! So for those who are starting out in college or who are about to graduate, be sure to keep in mind these lessons.
- Communication, communication, communication.
You are bound to work with many people throughout your stay in the org, from upperclassmen to even professionals outside the university. How you relay information and express your ideas and opinions to other people is crucial to working effectively. Plus, it decreases the chances of you making rookie mistakes.
- It's okay to disagree on ideas.
Having different opinions on an important matter is actually a good thing, because it gives you more options and lets you make better decisions! That is also why it's perfectly fine to have disagreements, as long as your reasoning is valid and rational. Keep an open and understanding mind, and you'll surely bring out the best in your work.
- A little wit or pun won't hurt.
There have already been studies about punny people being smart—it exercises your capacity to think outside of the box, which is what will make you shine and stand out from the rest. You will definitely need those skills when you have to promote your next org event, which can someday turn into your future ad campaign, so don't limit your puns to your Instagram captions.
- Be confident with your work.
Bosses—from your org to your future office—can easily tell if you are presenting something that you are not confident about. If you really did your best and you worked hard for it, no matter what the results are, you should be proud of your output! May it be plans or physical products, it shows your boss and your co-workers that you put effort into it and that you used your best ideas. Work it (literally)!
- Recognize other people's work and skills!
Part of being a good team player is knowing your colleagues well, and that includes learning about their skills and capabilities. Having them in mind for a certain task means that you acknowledge them, and that they are just as important as you are in the org. When many people work on the same thing, it's not productive at all, so maximize your assets and let everyone shine!
- Respect other people's time (that includes rest!)
In order to have a mind brimming with amazing ideas, you've got to have a little break for yourself and everyone, too! Taking a breather could also be an opportunity for you to let the good ideas appear on their own. Remember, girls, the healthier the body and mind, the better the performance will be!

To the Person Who Does Not Know Any 1D Song
By: CJ Reyno
Never in my wildest dream I imagined to meet someone who does not know a single One Direction song or who does not even know, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, and err… Zayn Malik. How did you spend your teenagehood without listening to their songs? The disrespect to my #StyPayHorLikSon. My initial reaction, Vas Happenin’?
Since I was 12 years old, that was way back on 2012, One Direction songs have been my official life soundtrip, my go-to songs whenever I feel happy, sad, mad, excited, and etch. I can still remember how people went crazy just to attend their concert here in the Philippines. I must admit, I was one of those. LOL. The group was also dubbed as, “The Biggest Boyband in the World”. They were an era. You really left me in awe when you told me that you do not know a single One Direction song. Their songs are gold. But I was a little hopeful when a new messaged popped up on our conversation, “Hey I know one, Make You Beautiful”.
You do not know how my world collapsed after reading your message. I would like to say that I appreciate the effort, thanks, but they do not have a song entitled, Make You Beautiful, because it is, What Makes You Beautiful. I tried to explain but you said that they are just the same. (Tip: Never fight with a Directioner when it comes to this because we will not let our guards down). No! They are not the same. How can you make this big mistake? LOL. What Makes You Beautiful is One Direction’s debut song. Almost everyone knows this, “you’re insecure, don’t know what for,” ring a bell? The music video of this surpassed 1 billion views on Youtube. On my 21 years of existence, you are the very first person who told me this “I-Thought-It-Was-A-Joke-But-You-Are-Serious” statement.
As a persuasive fangirl, I thought to myself that I should make you appreciate their music, that you should know that it is What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. The group may be in hiatus but their music is and will always remain superior. You are hard-headed lad. We even when to the point where you challenged me to treat so I can make you watch their music video. Am I even surprised that I agreed to this? HAHA. I feel like an agent trying to persuade her customer to buy a property on our company. You do not know how happy I was when you sent me your video listening to What Makes You Beautiful. I felt like I successfully closed a deal with my client. Not to exaggerate but I really jumped because of happiness after watching your video. It was the first message I checked that morning. Thank you for your effort, so much appreciated. Funny how our conversation starts with your innocence on One Direction until it goes deeper and last longer. Up All Nigh conversations which turned to almost Midnight Memories. Ironic how a Directioner had developed an admiration on someone who dislikes her favorite boys? Just like One Direction’s song, Change My Mind, “Never felt like this before. Are we friends or are we more?” I guess, like Liam’s line on Love You Goodbye, “It's inevitable everything that's good comes to an end. It's impossible to know if after this we can still be friends.”
I was happy that I made you listen to One Direction. At least I made you appreciate and made you aware that there is a song called, What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. I am happy that you already found your Girl Almighty. Wish me luck on finding my Summer Love. xoxo, Your Directioner friend
Here's a fan art that I made for Lee Joo Young of Itaewon class! I've been making digital illustration since last year and I'm happy that I was able to see my improvements. I'm also happy to see people's reactions and support for my craft even though all of it are made through my phone (adobe illustrator) only ????. You don't actually have to use expensive or complicated medium as long as you know how to be creative and like what you're doing, then you can do it. ????
