An Interview with Atom

Wednesday, May 25, 2011


It happens once in a blue moon to meet credible personalities around, and fortunate enough, we got the opportunity to interview one of the most promising journalists of this generation, Mr. Atom Araullo -- journalist, activist, and a fellow Isko. Getting to know more about him is quite fascinating for: one, he answers well that you can very much see how well-rounded a person he is; two, he can crack jokes that are still substantial, meaning you can still learn something from the humor he delivers; and three, he's a very down-to-earth person. His way of thinking and life principles are very inspiring, and for me, that is something that made me look up to him the moment our interview was over. #trulyaninspiration.

On another note, Sis Yesha tagged me! So here's 10 things about me.

Rules:
-Each tagged person must post ten things about themselves.
-You have to choose and tag ten people.
-Go to their blogs and tell them you tagged them.
-No tag backs.
-Have Fun

  1. I do not eat seafood except mussels, shrimp, and fish, though I really don't have an allergy for them (ie crab)

  2. I have a HUGE liking for jdoramas/kdramas/tdramas or yes Anything about Asian Dramas!  XD There's no single day that I don't watch at least an episode of any drama. Yes, even if there's an exam the next day. lols!

  3. I'm very fond of roaming and trying out beauty products when I go to malls (and usually end up buying something from Korean cosmetics)

  4. Dancing and singing are my two hobbies I'm really into.

  5. I have three towels when I take a bath -- for the hair, the body and the feet.

  6. I have dissected frogs and cats for educational purposes, and it amuses me how life can really be complicated (with all the systems and organs in the body working).

  7. I'm a frustrated photographer especially when it comes to nature photography. I guess my exposure to BS Biology and fieldworks awakened my sense of being a naturalist.

  8. I can sing in low or high tones(but not the highest tones made by sopranos as in the highest ever! LOL) When the choir needs a bass or a tenor, I can sing their parts. I'm an Alto by the way :D

  9. I've tried gun-shooting during my highschool years for ACP training and it was really fun! I thought it was a good stress reliever. :)

  10. I can stay all day staring at the computer and of course do something to pass time. HAHA!

So there. :) Now I'm tagging Lianna, Gia, Alyanna, Noemi, Krizelle, Chi, Venus, Dueny, Clint, and Ren.

  1. Ahhh I know what you mean by watching Asian drama's. I haven't watched any in awhile thou. Last one I watched was Calling For Love I think. Forget already since I haven't watched any since the semester started in January. But with one final to go before summer vacation I'm going to be watching dramas and anime non-stop. XD

    And that's pretty cool with doing gun-shooting in h.s. Not alot of schools here have that. I heard it's a good stress reliever and wouldn't be surprised.

  2. I love watching asian dramas too. They're like drugs. I didn't know you could sing ate! yay I wanna hear you sing <3 . I wanna try gun shooting, so much... I don't know. I really need to know how to hold a gun and shoot since there's no such word as "safe" whenever we go out.

  3. I like Atom Araullo! I agree, he's one of the more promising journalists today. Are you gonna post the interview here?

    Our batch was lucky enough not to dissect animals in high school. Hahah. The sight of bloody organs makes me feel dizzy.....

    I agree with Mariel ^ -- Asian dramas are like drugs. I prefer kdramas because I'm more comfortable listening to Korean than Mandarin lol (jdoramas are usually too short for my liking haha). Have you watched 49 Days? :D

  22. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It's very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  23. A large percentage of of the things you state happens to be supprisingly accurate and that makes me ponder why I had not looked at this in this light previously. This particular piece truly did turn the light on for me personally as far as this particular subject matter goes. However there is just one factor I am not really too comfortable with and while I attempt to reconcile that with the actual main theme of your issue, allow me observe what the rest of the subscribers have to say.Well done.
