inside ateneo? how bout outside? there's difference b/w inside ateneo and outside ateneo. if they can be selective with treating people, then that only affirms what i am saying... coz from what i remember, in my previous dwelling w/c is located in sampaloc, the residents there talk to everyone... as in everyone... no selections whatsoever...
There can be a whole lot of things that affect how people interact, like how they were raised, their backgrounds, lifestyle, etc.
I think medyo masyado magkaiba naman yung places na your trying to compare. Not all Ateneans on Katipunan live there. Nagkataon lang na they're there because our school is there. Think of it like Makati and the students are the people who go to work. Different people, different attitudes, different stories. I hope you get my point on this one.
On the other hand, Sampaloc is a place where probably most of the people know and talk to each other because it is a community of families that live, work, go to school, etc. together in one particular area, we can say that (maybe) mas friendly ang atmosphere (besides the stereotyping of the place as a dangerous one).
You actually remind me of myself thinking of the same thing before I started studying there.
The people are really friendly and kind (ex: as i walk inside in the mornings, may nakakasabay akong nag tha-thank-you sa guard na nagtratraffic sa may pedestrian lane) once you get to know some of them. Maybe meron nga talaga na snobbish (or hindi lang talaga sila magaling makipag communicate with strangers) pero I can assure you na kakaunti lang talaga sila.
If I haven't made my point clear, I hope we can find time chat about this in the future because when I see misconceptions about students like myself of Ateneo, it really makes me feel bad na mayroon (at nakakalungkot na marami) ang may masamang tingin sa mga studyanteng katulad ko. I hope you keep an open mind about this.
anyways, i do see that ateneans are nice. it's just that, it's hard to start a conversation w/ them. out of all the people i was able to connect with here in katipunan (aside from the security guards, tinderas, and the like), here's the breakdown:
1 - san beda law, dlsu undergrad
1 group of san beda acctg students
2 ateneo law students
1 ue med student, ateneo undergrad
1 ateneo mgt student
just seeing this record gives me the presumption that indeed ateneans are cold.
there is nothing in our deliberations here in this forum that will ever change my mind. unless i see some significant changes in how ateneans converse with others, my perception will never change.
anyways, this issue is minimal. i can get many other friends elsewhere and i know where i stand. i am secure in where i am now. but i will never forget the coldness i felt in katipunan...
Will SOME ATENEAN PLEASE TALK TO JUDGE_OJO ALREADY? Maawa naman kayo!
ahahhahaha... wag na... di ko kelangan... hehehhe...
ano ba yan. ang daming BOBONG THOMASIAN na hihirit na naman sa Ateneo subforum.
Bahay_Na_Bato, I've already done what you wanted you happen, though I think it's not enough for judge_ojo.
honestly kasi, this presumption that i am a ust troll is valid. however, i have proofs to rebut this. heheheh... you can search all my posts here...
anyways, my intention here is not to demean ateneans. i only posted those messages to express my grief. anyhow, i was able to coexist with ateneans the year when i was staying in katipunan. however, i also admit that i wasn't able to find new friends among them. anyways, despite that, i had good times myself in katipunan. pero actually, i admit that most of them are good-looking (hotness levels) and pretty smart. hehehe...
I don't get your whole story. Ba't mo naman nasabing snob ang mga Atenista? Dahil hindi sila nakikipagconnect sa mga taong outside AdMU? Naguguluhan rin ako sa perspective mo. Nagstay ka sa Katipunan, and hoping ka na magka-friend kang Atenista? Ano ba position mo nung nasa Katipunan ka? Studyante ka ba? Guard? Clerk?
Ang hirap kasi kung wala namang reason ang Atenista na makipagusap sayo. I mean, sino ba magrarandomly walk up to a total unrelated stranger and start a conversation with the intention of becoming just friends?
Metro Manila na ito. It's not a peaceful city where you can just be friendly with everyone you meet. Especially when people think that you're rich just because you come from a rich school. Siyempre yung iba, may masamang intention. Wary lang talaga tao dito, kasi ang hirap talaga kung yung majority, iniisip na kung mayaman ka, may pera ka na pwede mo lang basta basta ihagis sa kalye or something. No one wants to be taken advantage of.
I don't know, pero kala ko rin dati snob ang mga Atenista. Kinabahan nga ako nung pumasok ako eh. Di ko alam kung anong klaseng tao ang mga makikilala ko. Kala ko snobs lahat. Pero hindi pala, grabe, down-to-earth karamihan ng mga nakikilala ko dito. Pero siyempre may snobs rin dito, lahat naman ng school may snob eh.
Agree ako kay IonizedSalt, parang ang sad na snobs kami to the majority. Mahirap lang talaga kung the people outside the safety zone kausap mo. Pero majority naman ng Ateneans hindi snobs eh.
i came from "the other school", sa na-experience ko, most of my highschool friends, naging masyadong pro-school rivalry. and they are always bragging about their school to the point na offensive na.
let's not consider them as snobbish, siguro they are just proud to be ateneans.
i guess ateneans aren't really snobbish... just an observation when i was able to get to visit katipunan about 3 times during the past few weeks. however, i think that the atenean culture seems like worlds apart from the rest of the philippines (it seems). quite the contrary, UP is pro-masa pero nakaka-ewan din. so having taken jeepney rides via the Katipunan-UP route is quite a "home" for me. there's just this blend b/w the atenean "blue" spirit and the up "pro-masa" spirit.
judge ojo, perhaps you misconstrue being reserved as snobbish.
Baka yung mga atenean girls ang nakikita mo.Of course they just follow the 'Dont talk to strangers' rule. mahirap na lalo nakung mga pampered,sheltered girls at mga convent HS pa galing mga yun. mga hindi talaga masyado ma-PR sa simula ang mga yun kasi nahihiya pa sila. the ateneo HS boys, wala ako problema sa kanila. mga cowboys nga eh.
You said you lived in katipunan for a year. at that time, did you even try to approach some of them and engage them in conversation, as in your own initiative?baka ikaw ang nag-eexpect sila ang unang kakausap sa iyo.
or maybe you just did not have the opportunity to hang-out with an Atenean for a longer period hence no opportunity to forge a bond.
