Everyone has to deal with competition in one way or another. Finding a right partner, passing  entrance examinations in college, earning college scholarships, participating in contests: all of these involve competition and we have to accept the fact that all of us have the possibility to win or to lose.  There is no escape with these possibilities , we just have to embrace them and understand them. My point in doing this blog is to admit that "Losing is a part of our life" .  I have to move on with this issue and just accept what has been decided.
    It happened last time. December 6 , 2012. ;)
 That day was the Division Cantata 2012 and we are all excited to go back to Talipan National High School in Pagbilao where last division cantata was held there too. Good thing about us, (ARV)  is we already belong in Category C and we are with IV-CCR (401) and they will compete in Category B. I'm happy because all of us , Arv will going to perform on the stage unlike before that some of us including me we're just watching and yelling our classmates just because the mechanics said that the participants will only be 25. We all woke up early and ready ourselves with our costumes. I'm happy to see our Mapeh teacher , Mrs. Pereha that is so caring and supportive that she was the one to look for what we're going to ride and she was the one to pay our fair. Of course , I also want to mention our loving Adviser, Sir Ayie because he decided to go with us just to cheer us and watch our performance and thank all the mapeh teachers that supported us. We were also wearing our varsity jacket coz we don't like to reveal our costumes yet. When we arrived, we saw different colorful costumes from different schools. They we're prepared and ready to compete. The girls have their make ups unlike us. :) They are wearing hats , neckties and other stuff. We stayed in our so "masikip" room. Arv and Ccr are just in only one room and we're more than 60 students so it was really hot inside the room. We got bored because we're about to perform in the afternoon and there we're a lot of participants. We enjoyed the first part of the program and we supported Ccr. Their performance was still great even though they're not choir like their "kalaban". We have our free lunch and that is "adobong langis" . Let's move on.
Beforewe performed , Mrs. Alcantara said that "Mga anak pag ba binawasan kayo malaking kawalan?" We were actually shocked to what Ma'am said and asked her Whyyyy? Because you're more than 30, if you perform more than 30 then you are disqualified. :( Whow that was a damn announcement. We thought everything was right, we still performed and smile even though the audience were already critizing us. "Bat an dami nila? We don't want to make ourself down , we tried our best. We performed with smiles on our faces and after our performance, some our clappin their hands but some have different looks on their faces. Ohh! They're insecures! >.< The said we looked like sailor moon in our costumes! Reallly? We're cute right! We're unique! We want to tell everybody there that we're not choir, we're just a simple 4th year student who wanted to perform and bring an honor to our beloved school. :/
       The most awaited part the awarding? Ohh. :( We already knew it. We're Disqualified! Can we just say that we are Overqualified because we we're too many and the participants are over.? If only we can admit it to ourselves, if only we knew it right from the start. Yaaah. "AMPALAYER, AMPALAYER." Bitter to judges, audience , everyone their in talipan especially the winners. Not because they win, it's because they were really proud of themselves not thinking that they were wearing a mantle ! :) That was the reason why we're bitter in mantle! We never expect that! We're not bitter just because we lost, it's because it's not fair. We didn't know that the mechanics were there. But one thing about is we we're glad because we were able to performed and we tried our best just to make them proud of us. 

       A bitter sorrow. A bitter chill A. bitter hatred and a bitter lesson. The difference between the Loser and the Winner in each such Game is that the Loser accepts that the proper ending to the Game, like a crescendo in music, is for oneself to lose. The Loser expects this all the time, and is indeed very surprised should he/she win. :/

Leave them be. Let bygones be MANTEL. XD

After all is said and done, there's no room for regret. We did our best, performed our hearts out, what more could we ask for? Three years consecutive Cantata champion baby, beat that Mantel people! :P

AMPALAYER? Hmm. It came to pass.
