This entry wouldn’t provide a shop list of what I can do for you. Rather the things I did and ‘til the present doing for you, O, so please know the extent of my love for you.
This is to symbolize the miles I would take and hours I would travel for you. Cold and heat can’t make me stop riding that Baliwag transit bus then getting that ticket from Manong Konduktor just to be with you, O, every waking day of my life, except Sundays of course.
I knew we would be celebrating our anniversary together. Its Silver, baby! I knew the importance of our talk – OrCom is communication after all. I didn’t think the little droplets of rain would turn our country down later that day — 092609. But see, I came still and didn’t miss what you have prepared for me. (@shifting paradigms, new mindsets)
O, you are not the only O who affected my life so much because last September 26 when we are about to celebrate Silver, this other O – Ondoy – came in my life too. He was uninvited but he came anyway. He literally and figuratively crashed and crushed the party. And he destroyed one of my favorite flats! Oh how rude of him! I braved the almost-knee-high flood. Look, we all rocked the flood while in our corporate attire! Woah to that!
But never mind there’s always a next time and next week – October 3 at CSB hotel – I know we are to continue the celebration. It would be our night solely for you, O, the other O would be gone by then.

And because of this uninvited guest, I was stranded, love. Celebration cancelled, talk shortened, shoes dampened, new slippers bought, and rooms rented. Alvina, Noemi and I got nowhere else to go. The mall was closing, the streets were flooded, and electricity was crashing down. So when we saw that tiny spec of light – Cherry Blossom – from a hotel we never knew we would enter, we took the opportunity and stayed for the night. We were all away from home that night – not to mention all the years I spent dorming – all for the love of you.

This is another metaphor of the weight I am willing to carry for you. No luggage is enough for me to stop taking all those weight on my shoulders, no readings is thick enough to carry; no laptop is heavy enough to say no to a presentation, nothing is heavy indeed if it is for O.
These are only the few of the things for you, Organizational Communication. And as Jasper would put it, these are all for the love of Orcom!
Happy 25th anniversary to you my love!
