Who would ever have imagined it! My whole life, school always began in June and ended in March. But starting 2014, some schools will be shifting academic calendar by beginning in August and ending in May.
The first to announce the change is the University of the Philippines, which will implement the new academic calendar with the 2014-15 school year in the following constituent units: UP Manila, UP Los Baños, UP Baguio, UP Visayas (all campuses: Iloilo, Miag-ao, and Tacloban), UP Open University, and UP Cebu, according to this Rappler article. But did you notice the list still hasn’t included UP Diliman (UPD)? It appears more consultation is needed with UPD’s stakeholders, which they will be doing in the coming weeks.
I was a greenhorn blogger in 2007 attending my first ever iblog3 summit in UP. Back then, I was just a participant — listening and being in awe of the blogger speakers who, for me, were already popular and well known in the blogosphere.
One of those that struck me then and in succeeding iblog summits was one guy who started vlogging (that is a v, not a b) ahead of his time. While the rest of us were writing our thoughts down, Coy (then popularly known by the monicker CokskiBlue) was already making waves as one of, if not the first ever, video blogger.
Imagine, Coy was already vlogging as far back as 2007!
When do you pay your annual realty tax?
Sec. 60 of the Real Property Tax Code (or PD No. 464) states:
“Payment of real property taxes in installments. — Real property taxes may, in the discretion of the taxpayer, be paid without penalty in four equal installments; the first installment to be due and payable on or before March thirty-first; the second installment, on or before June thirty; the third installment, on or before September thirty; and the last installment, on or before December thirty-first, except the special levies authorized under Sections forty-seven and fifty-five of this Code which shall be governed by the local ordinance or Department Order issued by the Secretary of Finance, as the case may be.”
For taxpayers who choose to pay the entire year’s realty tax within the first quarter, there are discount incentives.
The SoMoms had another life coaching session with Coach Pia recently. After my first coaching session with her, I realized how important it was to have a life coach that can look at your state of life and concerns from an objective and FEMALE (important!) point of view.

Coach Pia mentioned several factors that make a relationship with one’s spouse a healthy one:
(1) I can be myself – I can still be myself while nurturing my partner (AUTHENTICITY)
I can trust myself – I can trust my partner (BASIC TRUST)
(2) I feel respected – I respect my partner (BASIC RESPECT)
I feel understood – I can understand my partner (DEEPER UNDERSTANDING)
(3) I can nurture our children – Our children feel nurtured by us (BASIC PARENTING)
