Marocharim is a 21-year-old college senior from the University of the Philippines Baguio, majoring in Social Anthropology and has a minor in Political Science. He lives with his parents, his brother and his sister in Baguio City - having been born and raised there all his life. He is the author of three book-versions of The Marocharim Experiment.

Most of his time is spent at school, where he can be found in the UP Baguio Library reading or scribbling notes, and sometimes hanging out with his friends or by himself in the kiosks, or the main lobby. During his spare time, he continues writing. When not in school he hangs out with his friends, or takes long walks around Baguio City to, as he puts it, "get lost."

Desperado

< hmmm... >

   There are things I really, really want to do when I put everything on the line, going at it tooth-and-nail.  Some of my friends say that I am at my best when I take to my fighting form, when my self-imposed desperation takes the better of me.  Like my thesis: to be honest, I was a walking act of desperation during those days.

   And here I am in yet another desperate attempt: making a technical paper that condenses my 366-page thesis into eight pages for submission to an international conference.  I've been at it for a couple of weeks now, and somehow, I'm nearing that point when my better half emerges.  Whether or not I deliver is out of the question: I'm in a position where the beginning of my career is at stake.

   Desperation... near-total obsession, I say.  Forget near-total: I'm obsessed.  Really obsessed.  I'm on my way to fulfilling not only a dream, but something I'm hell-bent on doing.  I've got a lot of proving to do to people who have thought that I'm going to amount to nothing at the end of the day, that I'll eventually be a mere flake of ash left over from a blaze of obscurity.  No way, man.  Not now.  Not ever.

   This is exactly what I felt when I submitted my thesis last week: like N*Sync's "Pop," or perhaps a lingering affliction of herpes, I wouldn't close chapters just yet on chaos I start, or find myself in the middle in.

   Yup, there's only me, a stray tumbleweed, a technical paper, and the bureaucracy that is the foreign service that stands between me, Seattle, and my dream-like obsession.  And if it doesn't work out the way I would rather like it, there is always another way.

   Invenimus viam aut faciemus.
