It's been a while since I blogged, what with the hectic schedule of the campaign and all. Now, everything is finished. And now, I'd like to take this opportunity to thank the people who've been instrumental in my experience the past two weeks. And now that the results are out, I pretty much went through the entire process of losing elections in the span of a couple of hours. So now, it's time to thank the people who made this entire experience worth it.
First, the Alyansa sa Law people: I'd like to thank Arianne, Sop, Aaron, Ryan, Third, Toff (Rada and Lamug), JV, Viktor, Kring, and all others who were instrumental in helping me out. I think that no matter what happened, it was great to know that there were people who were willing to bet their good names and reputation on me. Thanks for everything guys. And congratulations to our new LSG President, JV La Chica. I voted for you, and I have no regrets in deciding to run under Alyansa.
Second, my slatemates: Nina, Joseph, Luis, Missy, Pats, Katz, Mario, Marj, Cleo, JB, Mimi and my fellow reps Justin, Lloyd, Yet, Sara, Bam, Sean, Tin, Aubrey, Kris, Bryce, Sweet and Dianne. We pretty much became like family in the span of two weeks. For that, we have to meet up anew and drink, drink, drink. Congrats to Katz, Missy, Luis, Mario, Kris, Tin, Aubrey, Bam and Justin who got in. You guys deserve it.
And to the rest of the Alyansa people: Jeff, Rain, Marian, Will, Von, RB, Vans, and whoever else I may have missed. No matter what the results were, we were able to push forward with a clean campaign with direction. We definitely had the best candidates among all the other slates, and that is no exaggeration. Special shout outs to Rain and Marian, For that alone, your devotion is admirable, and may you never tire of everything that you have do for the formation.
We in Alyansa will continue to work for the beliefs of the party, and we will continue to be visible all throughout the year, like we always have been. And we respect the fact that students of UP Diliman want alternatives that are clear and compelling.That said, rest assured that we will continue to do our best to make a compelling vision for the students. We are glad that the students made their choice, and we respect these choices. With this USC, it's about appealing to the students and making sure that there is something to appreciate in all parties, platforms and ideas. At least now, the students have decided that it was not the "Tagumpay" in the recent CRSRS referendum that will compel them to vote; it's something bigger than that.
Also, Arianne once told me that the students deserve the student leaders that they vote for. I agree. They have the mandate, and hence, the students deserve concrete services, campaigns and activities. With that, let's all congratulate all the winners, and hope that we can work together to really serve the students and community of UP.
