of a WOMAN trying to translate pulsations

for the relief of the body
and the reconstruction of the mind."

a not-so-bulilit mind

happy new year to all!

i'm quite happy about the new year and all that, and i hope this year will be a blast for me. hehe.

so what's new?

a new perspective on lovelife, for one thing. i'm starting to like not having a bf around, although i must say i miss him a lot, like missing talking and laughing with a best buddy. (bruha, if you're reading this, text me *wink*wink*).

also, i mentioned in my previous post a preview of the research paper my group and i are currently working on. embarking on a new journey in media. haha.

in techie terms, we're hoping to do a reception analysis of kids, aged 7 - 12 years, who watch Goin' Bulilit. basically it means that we want to know what kids think of the show, what feelings do they have on the issues that are presented, what values they get and learn from it, and so forth. Although Goin' Bulilit is a gag show, one can argue that not all the values, the issues, the current events that are portrayed are necessarily for kids. most of the time, the show has to do with the currents, the media, and the issues that adults are exposed to.

most often, people take for granted what children think about the world around them. this paper is hopefully a glance into what children think about shows that are supposedly for them. by kids simply giving the responses instead of the adults who frequently answer for them, we can get at least an honest truth about their perspectives.

after that, hopefully we can also get parents' views. if we have the time, that is, since it's a very limited resource, since this is a one semester thing.

two semesters ago we did a research paper on QTV, and last semester on radio promotion strategies, and i really hope that even with my limited experience in the broadcast media, i can still breeze you through what (at least i think it is) is an interesting taste of the audience's opinions.

btw, we're doing this qualitatively, meaning we won't be binding ourselves to surveys and such. haha.

sounds like much hashish at the start, but once the ball starts rolling, it's going to be a good game.

post-script. one day (if i have the time), i'll put up a different blog based solely on research work. topics will mostly be about media and communication. gawd, let me have time. haha.

    mahirap magresearch.
    hindi ba mas mahirap
    pag qualitative
    kasi hindi mo siya
    wala ring structure.
    kunwari alam ko
    sinasabi ko.
