aka Joseph George Monterrey

  • I live in Manila, Philippines (Vacation purposes)
  • I was born on January 17
  • My occupation is Police Officer (Rockport, TX)
  • I am Male

I was born in January 17, 1991 in Rodriguez, Rizal (formerly known as Montalban). I was a chubby during my toddler years (crying, crying, eating, etc.). Then when I reach 5 years old, I started to love playing, especially when it comes to Toys, everytime my mother didn’t buy any toys for me, I will get sad. I don’t know much anything about be a Man (because I was kinda scary when it comes to unusual things, and also I am a Momma’s boy). Things changed when I turned 12 this is the first time my mother sent me to a School (Public Elementary School to be Exacted), during my elementary years my first classmates treated me bad, they put trashes on my food, writing anything on my notes, and worst part is: They started to called me a Pig (because I was so fat before), they called me Fat everyday, every school year, up to my graduation (this is the first time that I’ve been bullied).  The important is, my academic performances during my elementary years were quite good (especially in Exams, I got a Top) and I learned Sports (Basketball and Badminton). Before I went to high school, my mother sent me to clinic to have circumcised (Parents orders). Then it’s time for High School (originally I will go to the Private high school, but due to Family and Safety concerns, my mother sent me to Public high school)….(gasp…My darkest years of my life. The reason I said this is because some of my  classmates from elementary, are still my classmates again, to Bully me. My grades in school were not good because we are too noisy, and mis-understood lesson. During my summer vacation 2006, my brother forced me to take a exercise because my previous weight is embarrassing, after a 6 month diet, my fatty weight reduced drastically, during my 2nd year period new classmates have been introduced, most of them were “bad ones”, and others were kinda nice, I don’t want to explain This further in order to conceal my personal memories but don’t worry, you will gonna think logically soon enough.  During my 3rd year days, my grades are starting to get good, because of one thing: Being Serious, this is my only year that I got an another top after our major exams (since Elementary).  Before I stepped to fourth year, I really need to improve my Badminton skills, yeah I was a kinda a Rookie, then after some training and regular matches, my skills are improved and the best part is: I won 5 championships in different division, during my rookie years as a won my very first Championship ; The Junior’s Title, then 3 months later I won The European championship 4 times in a row. I never won a “highest rank “ of Badminton before, but since I won and lose every match, maybe I’m gonna win that Title someday in the Future.

Fourth year, my last year in my High school years if I remember This, it would be my final year, for being bullied with my classmates, and I participated in some Recitations and school events and most of all frequent Lessons (with mild quizzes, activities, etc.). I will never forget this Song during our Graduation:

Who Am I lyrics

Who am I, that the Lord of all the earth
Would care to know my name
Would care to feel my hurt?
Who am I, that the bright and morning star
Would choose to light the way
For my ever wondering heart?
Not because of who I am
But because of what You've done
Not because of what I've done
But because of who You are
I am a flower quickly fading
Here today and gone tomorrow
A wave tossed in the ocean
A vapor in the wind
Still You hear me when I'm calling
Lord You catch me when I'm falling
And You told me who I am
I am Yours, I am Yours
Who am I, that the eyes that see our sin
Would look on me with love
And watch me rise again?
Who am I, that the voice that calmed the sea
Would call out through the rain
And calm the storm in me?
Not because of who I am
But because what of You've done
Not because of what I've done
But because of who You are


I am a flower quickly fading
Here today and gone tomorrow
A wave tossed in the ocean
A vapor in the wind
Still You hear me when I'm calling
Lord You catch me when I'm falling
And You told me who I am
I am Yours
Not because of who I am
But because of what You've done
Not because of what I've done
But because of who You are
I am a flower quickly fading
Here today and gone tomorrow
A wave tossed in the ocean
A vapor in the wind
Still You hear me when I'm calling
Lord You catch me when I'm falling
You told me who I am
I am Yours, I am Yours, I am Yours
Whom shall I fear?
Whom shall I fear?
'Cause I am Yours, I am Yours

Yip, yip, yip….yeah enough for the emotional time, As I was saying, My high school years are considered my darkest years of my entire life, I’ll give you a deep explanation about that, First; Bad attitude of my high school classmates, Second; the environment is unpleasant, Third; frequent bullies (that’s what I don’t wanna to remember) Fourth; during the class hours, some of the Teachers are either absent, or they attending a meeting or other important things, they this frequently, last Fifth; Noisy students (especially my classmates/friends). The only thing what I like during my high school years is; Nice teachers, during my first year, I met a Teacher who has a masteral degree, unfortunately that Teacher just resigned 4 months later before we became close friends, the reason why he resign simple: He want to retire after 10 years for being a Academic professional. Before I College, my brother obliged me to take a counseling session to adjust my behavior. After our counseling, I went to Roosevelt college by the course HRM  (my previous course). I’m feeling the environment is not quite good, my new classmates?

Let’s just say that from the beginning they were very nice, but later on they started to turn on backs on me. I spent 5 months in Roosevelt (that’s 1st semester) before I transferred to Our Lady of Fatima University. Before I get through this, I will give a you deep reason why I transferred to other school: No.1, My parents decision is to find a School without getting annoyed by Bullies, strict professors, and clean atmosphere. No.2, is the school’s dean. I really hate the attitude of the Dean of this school (Roosevelt), it is not about his Gayish behavior, but it is also; very strict, No.3, no defense/case study manner, before semester ends just take the finals and do the clearance (it’s too early to do a clearance stuff), and lastly No.4, anytime you failed on that particular semester, you will be kick out, in other words, No second chances.  Since I transferred now to Our Lady of Fatima University, things changed drastically, First is the Atmosphere (the environment, etc.), Second, the Professors (Good attitude),  the Students (not just helpful, but hardworking and diligent), lastly Third, Waterproof (It is rare to occur class suspension). Unfortunately my course is now I.T (Information Technology) because my inspiration of being Computer-holic started when I was 13 years old (I love computer games back then). During my 1st  year in OLFU, I met my very first classmates, most of them are unrecognizable. My grades after my first year were quite excellent, I got a 1.25 in Computer subjects, 2.75 in Math-based subjects, the rest, 2.75. During my 2nd year days, this is my first time that I got a failed score in a computer subject. My professor told me that I don’t have a grade for a final project is because of “Group conflict”. Second year is my only time to met a very nice professor named; Jero A. Trugo, I always answered to his questions, even we talked gossip. The last time I saw him, that was last March 2012. All of these years as adult were challenging the others were the “obstacles” (bullying, physical contact, etc.) of my entire life. Good thing I avoid those “obstacles” in order to be safe and sound. Do you know who helped me to pass the obstacles? Is none other than Lord Jesus Christ,  he is the one who guided me to the right path and also he watches me whenever I do.  So now I have to face a new challenge, I don’t know much about it, it can be easy, normal, or hard to fight, all what I want is to be Prepared.

George Mamauag was the most decent man I ever encountered during the days of my life. Everyone else, I can safely say, was either a Good or a Bad or quite often both. At first glance, George seems like a backwoods cowboy, one of those good old boys swapping lies about the days gone by. Yet over time you come to see him as a valuable ally and -- dare I say it? -- a Friend. It all comes from belief. George Mamauag believed in himself and believed in those around him. And from that strength came the strength that allowed him and those who followed him to survive everything else the universe threw at him. George Mamauag was a most decent and honorable man. I suppose that's why he is the greatest component in this godforsaken history    -Anonymous family member
