The ‘sidekick’

This blog is originally a class requirement in my undergrad days. After graduating, I decided to keep it so as not to lose the ideas I shared with my classmates. What follows is my original profile. To view my revamped, rockstar profile, click here. To visit my life as an audiophile, click here.

With communication comes great power, and with great power comes great responsibility. Words of Spider-Man’s Uncle Ben, with a communication twist. πŸ˜€

Hey everyone! I am KC, a senior Organizational Communication student from the University of the Philippines Manila, and this is a documentation of what was, is, and is to come in the field of communication– coming from my perspective, of course.

Why CommicRelief?

Yup. That is not a typographical error. Communication issues are serious stuff, but I guess we can still try to make them lighter. πŸ™‚

Have you ever seen a movie where there is that sidekick who often comments on the absurdity of things and oftentimes the one who thinks of the best way out of a problem, or the leading role’s best friend who often puts the situation in a lighter mood? Of course. In real life, I am that sidekick, or that best friend. I can be that person anyone can talk to, that person who gives witty remarks, that person who exposes details through constant probing. I want to give things a taste of humor, sometimes even sarcasm (good sarcasm, if there’s such a thing).

However, unlike other sidekicks, I don’t choose to be ignored. πŸ˜‰

Why One Week Notice?

I am required to post a blog every week (not that I don’t like it), so I always have a week to think of a good topic and good things to say before it gets published here (I hope they are good enough!). πŸ™‚

What now?

We have a lot of things to expect from this blog, of which even I cannot tell. But one thing is for sure though, all these things would be done to further improve our way of communicating. A little laughter in the process won’t hurt as well. πŸ˜‰

Cheers to new social media, and *ehem* Organizational Communication 152!

      Hello, Sir Barry! I am glad you liked the concept of being a ‘sidekick’, and I hope I can give justice to that. Thank you, Sir! πŸ™‚

    There is! There is good sarcasm in the world! XD The ones that sound funny, but are witty and don’t seek to destroy the feelings of other people in the process. That’s good quality sarcasm right there. >D

    Uncle Ben’s going to smack you, though, for using that quote. XD

      Erose! Haha, yes. I think I know that kind of sarcasm, and I think we OrCom students (as what I know from the batch) use that a lot. We’re used to it, and I think, most of the time… It helps! And it could be something to laugh at, too πŸ™‚

      As for the quote, I’ll just tell Uncle Ben: “Hey, that’s what I get from watching a lot of your nephew’s movies!” πŸ˜€ Then maybe he’ll forgive me πŸ˜‰

    yay kcee! lolol you just inspired me for my first official post. I’ll expect to be COMMically relieved soon. HA HA Yea, you can kill me for the pun! :))

    1. KC says:

      Yo, GJ! Me, inspiration? Haha, Now that’s something. πŸ˜€ Hey, we use a lot of “comm” puns for wordpress usernames recently (or is it just me?) But of course, we will always have something to relieve us COMMically. It’s what we do best. πŸ˜‰
