Ang fraternity ay para na 'din DOTA

Tau Gamma Phi is one of the most highly-respected Fraternities in our country (The Philippines). It ranks as the most prestigious frats alongside Alpha Phi Omega (APO) and Alpha Kappa Rho (AKRHO). It is established in 1968 and its affiliate sorority, the Tau Gamma Sigma is established in 1969.

Fast forward in the year of 2004 and there is a Triskelion (that is what the members of Tau Gamma Phi/Sigma are called) hopeful that wants to be a part of the triumphant fraternity. Three years later, on the 6th day of December 2007, he was baptized as the newest member of Tau Gamma Phi St. Dominic Chapter. Months had passed, and he was appointed as the Master Keeper of the Scroll, one of the highest position in the said fraternity. Years later, he was appointed as the G.C of Socio Intelligence, a position lower than the Scroll.

Let us name the character: Sherwin Mojica Victa - my boyfriend. He was a very responsible Triskelion who never misses attending their meetings every Thursday, hangs out at the usual Triskelion tambayan every day and most of all, who adores their Grand Triskelion. I am an independent girl, meaning, I am a non-sorority girl but I could understand the Fraternity because Sherwin taught me how to adapt to their culture, to their words and to their way of life. But in comparison of my life's culture to the Triskelion, I think there is no difference except that they carry a name of Tau Gamma Phi while I'm just the ordinary Chazzel Soriano who likes rock bands, singing, blogging and drinking.

But you know, I will never, ever understand my boyfriend! Promise! He's so hooked with his fraternity that it sometimes pains our relationship. It's like, I have the responsibility of hanging out on the Triskelion tambayan every day. I've never opened this topic to my boyfriend so I'm now babbling about my issues here on my blog. To me, I think girlfriends of Triskelion are just their accessories - to show their brothers that they're cool, that they made a good catch or whatsoever.

I'm really, really tired of this. I wanna be an independent woman who doesn't need a man to make decisions in her life! It's not that I wanna break up with my boyfriend. I LOVE HIM. I LOVE HIM SO MUCH TO LET HIM GO. But the fact that he should and MUST attend the meeting while I'm stifling a bored groan waiting on the other table made me think twice.

Do I really deserve all of the waiting and understanding? I don't exactly know!


  1. well kung important naman yun sa kanya di ba then why not? si soulmate mahilig sa dota pero i support him, pero kung di ka naman nag eenjoy then you have the right to think twice kasi panu kung magkakatuluyan kayo di ba? he must know his priority.. ^^

  2. yah. tama ka dyan, sis. dapat talaga alam niya yung priority niya di'ba? hindi puro frat. :D
