The Office of Student Affairs (OSA) released the updated second semester calendar today–and it was pretty clear that the year, at least the org year, is ending. On January 18, 2009, the perfomance management system phase 3 (OSA’s system of monitoring and grading organizations) year-end reports are to be submitted, signaling the end of the story, the start of the epilogue rather, since I’m feeling metaphoric.
I’ve been “waxing nostalgic” (Sarmenta, 2009) recently, probably because ACOMM has defined my stay in Ateneo, and this is seriously going to be one tough goodbye. Months ago, I was just thinking of linking ACOMM to other Communication organizations in other universities, and creating some sort of official coaliton, but now things have been slowly (and painstakingly) materializing. COMMotion is getting back on its feet, ACOMM NSTP is steadily becoming more systematic, and the organization in general is being more inclusive.
What a Taylor Swift-y year. So excited for the few months left. Def gonna make a COMMotion (WEH).
ACOMM 8 is COMMing soon (WEH).
