My name is Jocelle Dela Cruz, a law student in Polytechnic University of the Philippines and the author of the blog "The Legally Blunt". I was born on a hazy day of August 23, 1991. I have small yet tantalizing eyes, aquiline nose, fair complexion and an average built of height and weight. My family and other relatives are fond of calling me Jocelle, but I prefer Jhay-cee. I grew up in a populous yet lively neighborhood in Tatalon, Quezon City.
I best describe myself in 3 C's -- Courageous, Capable and Crazy! I know that perfection doesn't exist in this world but I always make sure that everything I do is out of my 100% effort because in all means, my name is at stake. I enjoy reading mystery novels from authors like Sidney Sheldon, John Grisham and James Patterson. I am also very fond of romantic-comedy movies. Becoming a lawyer was at first my Mom's dream for but as I go along the journey, I learned to love and claim it! I decided to put up this blog to share how it's like to be a one hot crazy law student chic.
“I hope that you understand it is my job to raise you into a well rounded, healthy young man that can function in the world and coexist with technology, not be ruled by it,” she wrote at the start of the list.
WITH THE ACCEPTANCE OF THIS GIFT COMES RULES: THE AGREEMENT
It is my phone. I bought it. I pay for it. I am loaning it to you. Aren’t I the greatest?
I will always know the password.
If it rings, answer it. It is a phone. Say hello, use your manners. Do not ever ignore a phone call if the screen reads “Mom” or “Dad”. Not ever.
Hand the phone to one of your parents promptly at 7:30pm every school night & every weekend night at 9:00pm. It will be shut off for the night and turned on again at 7:30am. If you would not make a call to someone’s land line, wherein their parents may answer first, then do not call or text. Listen to those instincts and respect other families like we would like to be respected.
It does not go to school with you. Have a conversation with the people you text in person. It’s a life skill. *Half days, field trips and after school activities will require special consideration.
If it falls into the toilet, smashes on the ground, or vanishes into thin air, you are responsible for the replacement costs or repairs. Mow a lawn, babysit, stash some birthday money. It will happen, you should be prepared.
