I hope when we wake up tomorrow:

  •          We’ll thank God for the new life He has given us.
  •          We’ll not take for granted all the things we see everyday
  •          We’ll thank our parents for the daily allowance they give us
  •          We’ll know what’s right from wrong
  •          We’ll be able to finish an important task each day
  •          We’ll learn in school
  •          We’ll not get soaked in wet because of the rain

You may not be able to do all the good deeds; the important thing is you have done something, and that’s already enough.

Para sa mga in love

Naranasan niyo na ba ang pakiramdam na kinausap/tumawag/nagtext mahal mo kahit sa sandaling oras lamang ngunit ang kasiyahang nadama mo sa ginawa niya ay umaabot ng linggo o higit pa? Sarap sa pakiramdam noh? Sarap ng may minamahal sa buhay.

Are you going to read this? If not, I don’t mind



I always tell myself to be true. Anything that appears in my mind and whatever I feel with so many comings and goings in my life I always blog it.

If I’m away from the computer, I write in on a scratch paper. To be honest with you, I get so pressured when other people tell me that my writing is good. And that’s really something. But who will really stay reading are my real friends and the people who love my blog.


That’s why when I get to read other’s blog I was never against with anything they post. Like me, they also have their own opinions, beliefs and events happening in their life. They are just being real and expressing their emotions. We just need to understand them. That’s what makes me appreciate different people, get inspired, learn from them and get ideas to post something on my blog (and sometimes even for my assignments, haha! like from Sir John Marine’s blog).


I salute every blogger in this world. They contribute a lot of help and knowledge to other people. They might sound harsh or not, but let’s face it we still get something out from them.


As long as we don’t step on other people and we know our limitations, everything will be fine.
"Don't be affected with what other people say about you
especially when you know to yourself that it is not true."

You know yourself better than anybody else

American Guy named Paul challenged a Pinoy,

“Use my name 4 times in a sentence.”

Pinoy thinking.
Paul, be carepaul, you might paul in the swimming paul!


Beat that? :)

For the many things you can do in this world,

You still get to be bored.

When you get sad,

It means that you have experienced to be happy
IF I WILL BE BLIND, I WANT YOU BY MY SIDE AND IT'S YOUR VOICE I'M ALWAYS GOING TO HEAR.

A taken for granted life

Most of the things in our lives are all taken for granted. We never notice the simple lucky things happening to us. Are you still going to ask for more if you're already complete? That you can see clearly, you can walk, you can talk and many more?

You're already so lucky when you were born that way, because there are other people who have nothing to do but to accept what they are. There are even handicap people who can do what you can do but you're just too lazy to do those. The reason for this is you're too confident of what you had.

Try to play with your mind. You don't have to be intelligent to think about simple things. What's important is you know how to observe and that's what matters.

There is even an instance when you even forget to thank God for the new day He has given you, and sometimes you'll wake up with a frown face.

It's been raining...

... and all classes were suspended
... the houses are quiet
... some kids are bored
... some are having their sleep
... some just watching tv
... no one wants to play with the rain,
... but many want to see the sun
... and enjoy outside to have fun
... like me, I want to go out
... to break free,
... to feel the warmth,
... to run and chase the butterflies,
... to be young again
... to be alive,
... but I could no longer be
... for there are lots of responsibilities
... even I'm just stuck here.

Luke & Natalie - Broken Tango



Tonight, I feel like I want to dance tango. I never had a chance to do this for years that I've been into dancing. Every time I play this video, the romantic feeling never fades. I must be so in love, deeply in love with the guy I'm always thinking of. Him, me, just the two of us, I hope this happens one day, make it a surprise or not, but I hope to experience this kind of feeling with him.

Sometimes, I just wish to live in my dreams, who doesn't?

I am also happy for what just happened this afternoon, it's like heaven's gate opened to let me enter and feel the wonder of life. But I'll just keep that happy thing to myself. I don't want to be vulgar. Sometimes, it's better to keep things unsaid.

Am I freaking you out right now? If I am, Sorry. I just want to express the happiness I am carrying inside my heart.

Good night.

"Today I Don't Feel Like Doing Anything, I Just Wanna Lay In My Bed"

The moment my coach announced that we'll have no training tomorrow and this coming Monday in our pep squad I was so glad! I even wanted to shout on top of my voice "HOORAY!!!" but I couldn't because he might change his mind. So I just blushed in one corner. At least I am given a chance to sleep longer this weekend because I badly need it. Sleeping 4 hours every night really sucks! My eyes automatically close when I'm already in class, and I hate that feeling! Plus, I can do on the following days tons of my assignments that are to be submitted next week.

sigh.

I thank God for the good news, for my safe travel going to school and at home, for my health and for the abundant blessings I keep receiving from Him every day of my life!

Oh, it's 11:40 in the evening again. I should go to sleep now.

I'll talk (blog) more tomorrow for you.

P.S. I keep thinking about this guy before I go to sleep. I hope I dream of him tonight. He just doesn't know how I love him so much! I can't wait for the day I can hug him tightly.

Ok, I said too much. Good night, world!

Theology 101 (2)

Honestly, when theology subject starts it's either I'm hungry or sleepy because our schedule is from 12 noon to 1:30pm (People are supposed to have their lunch or have a little rest that time, right?), that's why I feel so bad when i'm not listening to our professor for he is discussing about God, His good deeds and what He is trying to tell the people. I'd rather doodle random names on my paper and not listen attentively.

Don't get me wrong, but I really do have strong faith in God, and He knows that. But the case in my school, I'm just really running out of energy.

However, when I hear a quote or poem from my professor I always write it down on my notebook, and the quote I got from Him today is:

"The heart has its own thinking that the mind couldn't understand"

After hearing those words, I began to be alive! I secretly smiled. I can relate to what the quote meant.

I know that each one of you had gone through to a certain decision that you let your heart lead than your mind even though you know it's wrong because you choose to be happy than to be right. I did the same.

Sigh.

Human nature.

Good night, world

Do I look fine?

I lack sleep because of tons of school works I finished last night and up to this time.

So, there, I'm taking a rest now. All of you take care okay?

Do you have a problem? I know you can solve it. Even I give my opinion on how to overcome it, it is still you who is going to decide for your own.

Good night. 



Not over you- Gavin Degraw

"If you asked me how I'm doin' I would say I'm doin' just fine, I would lie and say that you're not on my mind.
But I go out and I sit down at a table set for two, and finally I'm forced to face the truth...
No matter what they say, I'm not over you"

Lately, I feel like singing lines from different songs. Those words seem to get how I feel. Sometimes I feel loveless, so alive, so tired, so lonely, so insecure, so mad, so inspired, so merry... in short, I'm having mixed emotions. And whatever I have in my mind I always want to let it out, but sometimes I couldn't let it all out because there is something stopping me. And it just feels so bad not making it happen :|

sigh. I hope, I hope... cuz I don't want to wish anymore :|

Today, i feel like...

...writing more, blogging more, and doing more! this may be something shallow for you to make you happy, but this means a lot to me. The whole world, they view my blog everyday, no matter what i keep posting here, they just seem to enjoy.

I can certainly tell you that this is me!

Enjoy reading! :)

Nowadays, we are the ones being controlled by the computers

Haven't you noticed? We are now the program and the computers are the user. How ironic, isn't it?

According to the news last night, we are supposed to use the internet for 1-3 hours only, If we exceed, we can now be entitled as a certified cyberspace addict.

To be honest, I am already an addict. I consume more than 5 hours in front of the computer (almost everyday). I blog, I tweet, I chat with whoever is online, I update status, check e-mails, and a lot more of social networking. Well, I guess, these are the only ways to connect myself to other people from different places. And I even tend to tell myself, "I'm sleepy, but I still want to use the computer. So yeah, I'll sleep later." though I know this is wrong because I am starting to care more about the internet than my own health.

Well, what can we do, time changes. We are living in a modern world full of technology. We just have to adopt and be immune with the changing world. And lastly, let us just be cautious with our health, our life is still important than anything else (note to self).

P.S. Add me on facebook: http://facebook.com/ericaritish and http://facebook.com/joanaericadanielle and I also have a twitter, flicker, photobucket, formspring account. Just ask the others to me for those :)

Have a nice day!

Stuck.

"There were so many things
That I never ever got to say
'Cause I'm always tongue tied
With my words getting in the way"

So, there is this guy i really love. I'm so in love, deeply in love, and whenever we talk/chat/text I always wanted to say the words "I LOVE YOU" before we end our conversation, but I couldn't. I always feel so coward. Instead, I always change it with "I MISS YOU".

Yes, I miss him too, because I don't see him, but i just don't want him to know that that is the only thing I feel for him. I always hope he feels that my heart beats for him. And I'm really frustrated right now. I don't know, maybe it's because I couldn't really tell him. Arghh! Whatever. He'll soon know, I hope.


The Happy Life and what it has to offer.

Do you know of anyone who wants a happy life?
Do you know of anyone who deserves a happy life....

This is what i'd always ask people around me. Sure, they know what being happy means, but they are not aware that most of their happiness can be short-termed. Devouring the food that you love, falling in love with someone special, capturing the greatest sceneries you've ever seen, mingling with your best friends........ all those feelings can come and go in split seconds.
Because right after that, you are placed back to reality. Sometimes, reality just hits hard.
However, most of us are not aware that the "reality" can sometimes be a choice.
Even if you are forced to, you basically had a choice. A tough one maybe, but it is by choice.

So, why don't we try to look at things in a different aspect. For me, I chose this road less traveled because i chose to. In fact, i have learned so much, the process has been so rich and colourful to me. A roller-coaster right at the beginning, to a transitional phase and now, just waiting for the right moment to sprout. Seeds have been planted and i am now seeing some form of results.
The beauty of it? this is only just the beginning. I feel good. in fact, i feel awesome :)

What I read from Rhadson's blog:

"Ang paghihintay ng pag-ibig eh gawaing pang babae lamang. Kung lalake ka eh wala kang magagawa kundi maghanap talaga."


(Waiting for someone to love you is only a girl's job. If you happen to be a guy, well you can do nothing but to search for that someone to love.)

I think I want to start again





I decided that it's about time I start doing the things I want to do and being who I always thought I would be.

Ever thought of that? Just being who you want to be? Just start.

That's what I'm going to try doing.

And I will accomplish it by doing the following things:

Eating less
studying more
Reading books I like
Finding my spirituality
Spending time with people I Love
Taking care of myself and others
Loving
Throwing away/getting rid of so much of the "stuff" I own
Redefining, and strengthening personal values



Ah midyear resolutions. They always seem to work out better for me than the January kind.

Fail photo!


This is me. I was at our porch doing some stunts. When the time I asked my sister to snap a photo while i'm doing one, it turned out to be a failure. LOL. The picture you see here was when I'm doing a front walk.

I didn't ask to take another picture because I can hardly balance myself anymore. maybe I'll show you a perfect one soon.

Have a nice Sunday!

I wouldn't want to be anybody else


"You made me insecure
Told me I wasn't good enough
But who are you to judge
When you're a diamond in the rough
I'm sure you got some things
You'd like to change about yourself
But when it comes to me
I wouldn't want to be anybody else"

Why am I like this?


Whenever I have the chance to take a rest at home I do not do it, even though I really feel so sleepy. I don’t know why. I can’t help but to open my laptop and start doing my agendas at the internet, especially here in my blog. And I know to myself that I really need some break.

Just like now, I should be sleeping this moment for my eyes are already closing, yet I don’t want to leave this place.

And most of the time I regret that I didn't grab the opportunity to do it because now I'm having pimples and huge eyebags on my face (just like the picture you see above).


Weird, I wonder why. 

A humble thought:

"Never look down on anybody...
Unless you are bending to help them up."
-Maegan Lim's GM

Good morning, world! Time to go to school. I hope this quote gives you a new lesson today.
Have a wonderful and blessed day ahead! (I believe I have mine already)

toodles!

One time at the school's cafeteria :)



My blockmates and I had our two hours break yesterday that's why we decided to spend our time taking pictures. And the outcome was full of wackiness. I have plenty more of these photos on my facebook account.

I had fun throughout the week. 

I guess this is the last post for now, It's Saturday tomorrow and I still have a make up class early in the morning so I should go to bed now.

Good night, people of God!

(YAWN)

SOME PEOPLE WILL ONLY REMEMBER YOU WHEN THEY NEED YOU TO:

  • lend them your money
  • like their status or profile picture on facebook (through PM's asking favors)
  • do something great for them
  • or many more that they know they can count on you.
And the most painful part about this is they will neglect you after what you have done kind to them. And all you ever wanted is to have a little conversation with them, yet they wasn't able to think about that.

But when you try to look at the bright side, you're like their candle. You are the source of their light in times of darkness.

Somehow, they need to know that you have feelings too, that there must be a give and take in this kind of relationship.

Just so you know, this is only a random thought inside my head that I want to put here in my blog.

Awkward Punchline


Are you an inverse sign?
Cosecant live without you.

WHY DO SOME PEOPLE PRESS THE REMOTE CONTROL SO HARD WHEN THEY KNOW THAT THE BATTERIES ARE ALREADY LOW?

WHY? CAN THAT RECHARGE THE BATTERIES (again)??
IT'S SO HARD WHEN OTHER PEOPLE CAN'T UNDERSTAND YOUR HUMOR.

Thursday, July 14, 2011

Many people say that I'm a deep person...

.. Ah! no wonder why many fall.

Who will you choose? A handsome guy who will hurt your heart?

or an ugly guy who will hurt your eyes?

"I can see myself to you"

Me, staring at the mirror.

Note to self: Buy flat school shoes next time :)

LOL!

Did you know that I walked at the footbridge of Ateneo and Miriam last night with my barefoot? It's because I can't walk with my heels anymore :p

Good thing, the concrete is always clean.

"When I dream of you, and I wake to find you aren't really here, I miss you all the more."

Sigh.

A miraculous Tuesday!


I usually set my alarm clock at 4:15 in the morning every Tuesday and Thursday. Since its Tuesday today, I should be awake at that time. I heard my phone alarmed, I already opened my eyes, but I decided to close them for a few minutes because I still feel so sleepy for I just slept at 12 midnight. As I opened my eyes again, I thought 5 or 10 minutes only passed, and then when I checked my phone it was already 5:30 am! I was like, "Oh my, Oh my!!! I'm going to be late. I should be at the terminal this hour!!!"

I hurried myself to take a shower and dressed quickly because I want to travel to school as soon as possible. I know that if I don't leave immediately I might caught by the traffic jams along the way. While traveling, I prayed hard to God to make a miracle today that there is a possibility for me to be there on time.

I arrived in school at 7:47am, and I was already 17mins late. Fortunately, the professor hasn’t checked the attendance yet, so when I was there already I was not marked late.

I felt a relief, and I thank God for this. He is so good!

P.S. This is the also the very first time that I have not eaten my breakfast in my college life. I just sipped an energy drink before I fully left the house.

Monday, July 11, 2011

I HOPE SOMETIMES FACEBOOK STATUS WILL ASK ME,

"WHO'S ON YOUR MIND?

INSTEAD OF, "WHAT'S ON YOUR MIND?"

Because at the back of my mind, it's always that person I think of all the time.

Just sayin'! ;)

Sunday, July 10, 2011

Before I go to sleep,

I would like to thank my cousin, Jessica Erin, for making a background music for this blog. She's the person I can count on when it comes to html's.


Good night!

Hello, Sunday!


Good day to all readers!

I'm glad that I was able to go to church and attend mass today. I feel renewed again.God is really good.

How about you, did you attend mass already?

:D

When you think, "I can't do anymore. I need a break,"

that is the time to challenge yourself to keep going another five minutes. Those who persevere for even an extra five minutes will win in life.

This lifetime will never come again; it is precious and irreplaceable

To live without regret, we must have a concrete purpose, continually setting goals and challenges for ourselves. And we need to keep moving toward those specific targets steadily and tenaciously, one step at a time.

I value small things

 Look at the pink figure at the picture (please don't mind the stains), it was actually a drawing of Jamie Solano, one of my best friends. She sketched and colored a happy character in a sticker paper, cut it and placed on my filler notebook.

I suddenly remembered and missed her when I looked at the art work. I never thought I already kept that for almost two years now, and I still use the filler notebook up to this college days.


 She's a very brilliant person. She made a happy face of a girly bear because she knows that there will be a time in my life when I will feel down and lonely, and the figure could help me find a little joy by just staring at it for a few seconds.

Thanks, Jamie. I hope you'll be able to read this and send me a message. I miss and love you!


I need a car when I turn 18..

.. Because when it is raining, and I stand at the sidewalk to wait for a ride going home, I know that there are few terrible things that could happen.

Do you want to know what those are?

Oh well, how will I say this splendidly in English?

(Thinking for a few seconds….)

Ok, now I know. Those are; when you’re waiting at the sidewalk for a ride going home then you suddenly feel that your jeans are wet and stained it is because those cars already splashed dirty water onto you.  Second, your umbrella will be destroyed by the strong wind and you’ll have no more protection for yourself. Third, it will take long minutes before you can get a ride home for all public vehicles were already occupied by other passengers who also want to go home as soon as possible. Lastly, traffic jams will happen, and then you’ll inhale all the pollutions. And when you reach home, you’re already so exhausted, and eventually, you will decide to cram doing your assignment so early in the morning just for you to have your rest the time you enter the house.

How terrible! But when you have a car, you’ll experience less hassle with those situations.

And When I say “you”, I mean “me”

:)

A new challenge for me

Am I not SEXY?

Don't I look THIN?

Please tell me the truth. I'm open to know what you see in me physically.

You know what happened with our training in PEP SQUAD today? The coach removed me as being a flyer and  made me a front base in the pyramid!!!!!!!

I feel so bad about it. It was my chance, my opportunity and my time to spark in my school,  and in a second, it was taken from me :(

My coach said that I have to lose weight in order for me to be back as being a flyer. I may be small, but I'm heavy.

The news sucks!

But I'm not losing hope. And I am eager to do everything for the team. The reason for this is I love what I am doing there and I love the whole PEP SQUAD.

It's not the end of the day btw. I still have a training tomorrow morning and I should be sleeping this hour.

Good night to all! :)

PS, I'm accepting the challenge. Fight!

Humanities 101

Do you know why I am taking up Bachelor of Arts in Communications?

Simple. I want more writing and speaking than do drawings. I'm not good in art. I don't even know how to apply make-up well on my face nor mix and match colors when i need to color my drawing. I'm a not so good artist.

I'm telling you this because I have a subject, Humanities, and I thought that from the root word human it means studying more about people, how you will understand and communicate with them.. for short, how you will deal with them. But it turned out to be an ART CLASS which I really hate! our professor asked us all the time to sketch, to draw, to color, etc., etc. and I'm so frustrated!

Why? It's because I almost got a failing grade when I last submitted my work, and I do not like seeing a low grade in any paper or card. I get so grumpy when that happens!

The highest grade a professor can give in my school is 5.0, the lowest is 1.0, and the failing is F. 
and you know what grade i just received when the moment i saw my paper? It's 2.5!

Now, imagine how bad my art work is.

And there's more. Humanities is supposed to be a course and not a subject!


oh, dear. I need help :)

What I have learned from life:

IT IS NOT SMART TO BE LESS THAN WHO YOU ARE  

=)

I'm one of the strongest people on earth

Why?

There are so many people on earth, but God has chosen me to handle a very difficult challenge because He knows i'm STRONG and I can over come it all.

I hope when we wake up tomorrow:

  •          We’ll thank God for the new life He has given us.
  •          We’ll not take for granted all the things we see everyday
  •          We’ll thank our parents for the daily allowance they give us
  •          We’ll know what’s right from wrong
  •          We’ll be able to finish an important task each day
  •          We’ll learn in school
  •          We’ll not get soaked in wet because of the rain

You may not be able to do all the good deeds; the important thing is you have done something, and that’s already enough.

Are you going to read this? If not, I don’t mind



I always tell myself to be true. Anything that appears in my mind and whatever I feel with so many comings and goings in my life I always blog it.

If I’m away from the computer, I write in on a scratch paper. To be honest with you, I get so pressured when other people tell me that my writing is good. And that’s really something. But who will really stay reading are my real friends and the people who love my blog.


That’s why when I get to read other’s blog I was never against with anything they post. Like me, they also have their own opinions, beliefs and events happening in their life. They are just being real and expressing their emotions. We just need to understand them.

A taken for granted life

Most of the things in our lives are all taken for granted. We never notice the simple lucky things happening to us. Are you still going to ask for more if you're already complete? That you can see clearly, you can walk, you can talk and many more?

You're already so lucky when you were born that way, because there are other people who have nothing to do but to accept what they are. There are even handicap people who can do what you can do but you're just too lazy to do those. The reason for this is you're too confident of what you had.

Try to play with your mind. You don't have to be intelligent to think about simple things. What's important is you know how to observe and that's what matters.

There is even an instance when you even forget to thank God for the new day He has given you, and sometimes you'll wake up with a frown face.

It's been raining...

Oh, it's 11:40 in the evening again. I should go to sleep now.

I'll talk (blog) more tomorrow for you.

P.S. I keep thinking about this guy before I go to sleep. I hope I dream of him tonight. He just doesn't know how I love him so much! I can't wait for the day I can hug him tightly.

Ok, I said too much. Good night, world!

Theology 101 (2)

Honestly, when theology subject starts it's either I'm hungry or sleepy because our schedule is from 12 noon to 1:30pm (People are supposed to have their lunch or have a little rest that time, right?), that's why I feel so bad when i'm not listening to our professor for he is discussing about God, His good deeds and what He is trying to tell the people. I'd rather doodle random names on my paper and not listen attentively.

Don't get me wrong, but I really do have strong faith in God, and He knows that. But the case in my school, I'm just really running out of energy.

However, when I hear a quote or poem from my professor I always write it down on my notebook, and the quote I got from Him today is:

"The heart has its own thinking that the mind couldn't understand"

After hearing those words, I began to be alive! I secretly smiled. I can relate to what the quote meant.

I know that each one of you had gone through to a certain decision that you let your heart lead than your mind even though you know it's wrong because you choose to be happy than to be right. I did the same.

Sigh.

Human nature.

Good night, world

Do I look fine?

I lack sleep because of tons of school works I finished last night and up to this time.

So, there, I'm taking a rest now. All of you take care okay?

Do you have a problem? I know you can solve it. Even I give my opinion on how to overcome it, it is still you who is going to decide for your own.

Good night. 



Not over you- Gavin Degraw

"If you asked me how I'm doin' I would say I'm doin' just fine, I would lie and say that you're not on my mind.
But I go out and I sit down at a table set for two, and finally I'm forced to face the truth...
No matter what they say, I'm not over you"

Lately, I feel like singing lines from different songs. Those words seem to get how I feel. Sometimes I feel loveless, so alive, so tired, so lonely, so insecure, so mad, so inspired, so merry... in short, I'm having mixed emotions. And whatever I have in my mind I always want to let it out, but sometimes I couldn't let it all out because there is something stopping me. And it just feels so bad not making it happen :|

sigh. I hope, I hope... cuz I don't want to wish anymore :|

Today, i feel like...

...writing more, blogging more, and doing more! this may be something shallow for you to make you happy, but this means a lot to me. The whole world, they view my blog everyday, no matter what i keep posting here, they just seem to enjoy.

I can certainly tell you that this is me!

Enjoy reading! :)

Nowadays, we are the ones being controlled by the computers

Haven't you noticed? We are now the program and the computers are the user. How ironic, isn't it?

According to the news last night, we are supposed to use the internet for 1-3 hours only, If we exceed, we can now be entitled as a certified cyberspace addict.

To be honest, I am already an addict. I consume more than 5 hours in front of the computer (almost everyday). I blog, I tweet, I chat with whoever is online, I update status, check e-mails, and a lot more of social networking. Well, I guess, these are the only ways to connect myself to other people from different places. And I even tend to tell myself, "I'm sleepy, but I still want to use the computer. So yeah, I'll sleep later." though I know this is wrong because I am starting to care more about the internet than my own health.

Well, what can we do, time changes. We are living in a modern world full of technology. We just have to adopt and be immune with the changing world. And lastly, let us just be cautious with our health, our life is still important than anything else (note to self).

P.S. Add me on facebook: http://facebook.com/ericaritish and http://facebook.com/joanaericadanielle and I also have a twitter, flicker, photobucket, formspring account. Just ask the others to me for those :)

Have a nice day!

Stuck.

"There were so many things
That I never ever got to say
'Cause I'm always tongue tied
With my words getting in the way"

So, there is this guy i really love. I'm so in love, deeply in love, and whenever we talk/chat/text I always wanted to say the words "I LOVE YOU" before we end our conversation, but I couldn't. I always feel so coward. Instead, I always change it with "I MISS YOU".

Yes, I miss him too, because I don't see him, but i just don't want him to know that that is the only thing I feel for him. I always hope he feels that my heart beats for him. And I'm really frustrated right now. I don't know, maybe it's because I couldn't really tell him. Arghh! Whatever. He'll soon know, I hope.


The Happy Life and what it has to offer.

Do you know of anyone who wants a happy life?
Do you know of anyone who deserves a happy life....

This is what i'd always ask people around me. Sure, they know what being happy means, but they are not aware that most of their happiness can be short-termed. Devouring the food that you love, falling in love with someone special, capturing the greatest sceneries you've ever seen, mingling with your best friends........ all those feelings can come and go in split seconds.
Because right after that, you are placed back to reality. Sometimes, reality just hits hard.
However, most of us are not aware that the "reality" can sometimes be a choice.
Even if you are forced to, you basically had a choice. A tough one maybe, but it is by choice.

So, why don't we try to look at things in a different aspect. For me, I chose this road less traveled because i chose to. In fact, i have learned so much, the process has been so rich and colourful to me. A roller-coaster right at the beginning, to a transitional phase and now, just waiting for the right moment to sprout. Seeds have been planted and i am now seeing some form of results.
The beauty of it? this is only just the beginning. I feel good. in fact, i feel awesome :)




What I read from Rhadson's blog:

"Ang paghihintay ng pag-ibig eh gawaing pang babae lamang. Kung lalake ka eh wala kang magagawa kundi maghanap talaga."


(Waiting for someone to love you is only a girl's job. If you happen to be a guy, well you can do nothing but to search for that someone to love.)

I think I want to start again





I decided that it's about time I start doing the things I want to do and being who I always thought I would be.

Ever thought of that? Just being who you want to be? Just start.

That's what I'm going to try doing.

And I will accomplish it by doing the following things:

Eating less
studying more
Reading books I like
Finding my spirituality
Spending time with people I Love
Taking care of myself and others
Loving
Throwing away/getting rid of so much of the "stuff" I own
Redefining, and strengthening personal values



Ah midyear resolutions. They always seem to work out better for me than the January kind.

Fail photo!


This is me. I was at our porch doing some stunts. When the time I asked my sister to snap a photo while i'm doing one, it turned out to be a failure. LOL. The picture you see here was when I'm doing a front walk.

I didn't ask to take another picture because I can hardly balance myself anymore. maybe I'll show you a perfect one soon.

Have a nice Sunday!

I wouldn't want to be anybody else


"You made me insecure
Told me I wasn't good enough
But who are you to judge
When you're a diamond in the rough
I'm sure you got some things
You'd like to change about yourself
But when it comes to me
I wouldn't want to be anybody else"

Why am I like this?


Whenever I have the chance to take a rest at home I do not do it, even though I really feel so sleepy. I don’t know why. I can’t help but to open my laptop and start doing my agendas at the internet, especially here in my blog. And I know to myself that I really need some break.

Just like now, I should be sleeping this moment for my eyes are already closing, yet I don’t want to leave this place.

And most of the time I regret that I didn't grab the opportunity to do it because now I'm having pimples and huge eyebags on my face (just like the picture you see above).


Weird, I wonder why. 

A humble thought:

"Never look down on anybody...
Unless you are bending to help them up."
-Maegan Lim's GM

Good morning, world! Time to go to school. I hope this quote gives you a new lesson today.
Have a wonderful and blessed day ahead! (I believe I have mine already)

toodles!

One time at the school's cafeteria :)



My blockmates and I had our two hours break yesterday that's why we decided to spend our time taking pictures. And the outcome was full of wackiness. I have plenty more of these photos on my facebook account.

I had fun throughout the week. 

I guess this is the last post for now, It's Saturday tomorrow and I still have a make up class early in the morning so I should go to bed now.

Good night, people of God!

(YAWN)

SOME PEOPLE WILL ONLY REMEMBER YOU WHEN THEY NEED YOU TO:

  • lend them your money
  • like their status or profile picture on facebook (through PM's asking favors)
  • do something great for them
  • or many more that they know they can count on you.
And the most painful part about this is they will neglect you after what you have done kind to them. And all you ever wanted is to have a little conversation with them, yet they wasn't able to think about that.

But when you try to look at the bright side, you're like their candle. You are the source of their light in times of darkness.

Somehow, they need to know that you have feelings too, that there must be a give and take in this kind of relationship.

Just so you know, this is only a random thought inside my head that I want to put here in my blog.

Awkward Punchline


Are you an inverse sign?
Cosecant live without you.

WHY DO SOME PEOPLE PRESS THE REMOTE CONTROL SO HARD WHEN THEY KNOW THAT THE BATTERIES ARE ALREADY LOW?

WHY? CAN THAT RECHARGE THE BATTERIES (again)??
IT'S SO HARD WHEN OTHER PEOPLE CAN'T UNDERSTAND YOUR HUMOR.

Many people say that I'm a deep person...

.. Ah! no wonder why many fall.

Who will you choose? A handsome guy who will hurt your heart?

or an ugly guy who will hurt your eyes?

"I can see myself to you"

LOL!

Did you know that I walked at the footbridge of Ateneo and Miriam last night with my barefoot? It's because I can't walk with my heels anymore :p

Good thing, the concrete is always clean.
"When I dream of you, and I wake to find you aren't really here, I miss you all the more."

Sigh.

A miraculous Tuesday!


I usually set my alarm clock at 4:15 in the morning every Tuesday and Thursday. Since its Tuesday today, I should be awake at that time. I heard my phone alarmed, I already opened my eyes, but I decided to close them for a few minutes because I still feel so sleepy for I just slept at 12 midnight. As I opened my eyes again, I thought 5 or 10 minutes only passed, and then when I checked my phone it was already 5:30 am! I was like, "Oh my, Oh my!!! I'm going to be late. I should be at the terminal this hour!!!"

I hurried myself to take a shower and dressed quickly because I want to travel to school as soon as possible. I know that if I don't leave immediately I might caught by the traffic jams along the way. While traveling, I prayed hard to God to make a miracle today that there is a possibility for me to be there on time.

I arrived in school at 7:47am, and I was already 17mins late. Fortunately, the professor hasn’t checked the attendance yet, so when I was there already I was not marked late.

I felt a relief, and I thank God for this. He is so good!

P.S. This is the also the very first time that I have not eaten my breakfast in my college life. I just sipped an energy drink before I fully left the house.

I HOPE SOMETIMES FACEBOOK STATUS WILL ASK ME,

"WHO'S ON YOUR MIND?

INSTEAD OF, "WHAT'S ON YOUR MIND?"

Because at the back of my mind, it's always that person I think of all the time.

Just sayin'! ;)

Before I go to sleep,

I would like to thank my cousin, Jessica Erin, for making a background music for this blog. She's the person I can count on when it comes to html's.


Good night!

Hello, Sunday!


Good day to all readers!

I'm glad that I was able to go to church and attend mass today. I feel renewed again.God is really good.

How about you, did you attend mass already?

:D

When you think, "I can't do anymore. I need a break,"

that is the time to challenge yourself to keep going another five minutes. Those who persevere for even an extra five minutes will win in life.

This lifetime will never come again; it is precious and irreplaceable

To live without regret, we must have a concrete purpose, continually setting goals and challenges for ourselves. And we need to keep moving toward those specific targets steadily and tenaciously, one step at a time.

I value small things

 Look at the pink figure at the picture (please don't mind the stains), it was actually a drawing of Jamie Solano, one of my best friends. She sketched and colored a happy character in a sticker paper, cut it and placed on my filler notebook.

I suddenly remembered and missed her when I looked at the art work. I never thought I already kept that for almost two years now, and I still use the filler notebook up to this college days.


 She's a very brilliant person. She made a happy face of a girly bear because she knows that there will be a time in my life when I will feel down and lonely, and the figure could help me find a little joy by just staring at it for a few seconds.

Thanks, Jamie. I hope you'll be able to read this and send me a message. I miss and love you!


I need a car when I turn 18..

.. Because when it is raining, and I stand at the sidewalk to wait for a ride going home, I know that there are few terrible things that could happen.

Do you want to know what those are?

Oh well, how will I say this splendidly in English?

(Thinking for a few seconds….)

Ok, now I know. Those are; when you’re waiting at the sidewalk for a ride going home then you suddenly feel that your jeans are wet and stained it is because those cars already splashed dirty water onto you.  Second, your umbrella will be destroyed by the strong wind and you’ll have no more protection for yourself. Third, it will take long minutes before you can get a ride home for all public vehicles were already occupied by other passengers who also want to go home as soon as possible. Lastly, traffic jams will happen, and then you’ll inhale all the pollutions. And when you reach home, you’re already so exhausted, and eventually, you will decide to cram doing your assignment so early in the morning just for you to have your rest the time you enter the house.

How terrible! But when you have a car, you’ll experience less hassle with those situations.

And When I say “you”, I mean “me”

:)

A new challenge for me

Am I not SEXY?

Don't I look THIN?

Please tell me the truth. I'm open to know what you see in me physically.

You know what happened with our training in PEP SQUAD today? The coach removed me as being a flyer and  made me a front base in the pyramid!!!!!!!

I feel so bad about it. It was my chance, my opportunity and my time to spark in my school,  and in a second, it was taken from me :(

My coach said that I have to lose weight in order for me to be back as being a flyer. I may be small, but I'm heavy.

The news sucks!

But I'm not losing hope. And I am eager to do everything for the team. The reason for this is I love what I am doing there and I love the whole PEP SQUAD.

It's not the end of the day btw. I still have a training tomorrow morning and I should be sleeping this hour.

Good night to all! :)

PS, I'm accepting the challenge. Fight!

Humanities 101

Do you know why I am taking up Bachelor of Arts in Communications?

Simple. I want more writing and speaking than do drawings. I'm not good in art. I don't even know how to apply make-up well on my face nor mix and match colors when i need to color my drawing. I'm a not so good artist.

I'm telling you this because I have a subject, Humanities, and I thought that from the root word human it means studying more about people, how you will understand and communicate with them.. for short, how you will deal with them. But it turned out to be an ART CLASS which I really hate! our professor asked us all the time to sketch, to draw, to color, etc., etc. and I'm so frustrated!

Why? It's because I almost got a failing grade when I last submitted my work, and I do not like seeing a low grade in any paper or card. I get so grumpy when that happens!

The highest grade a professor can give in my school is 5.0, the lowest is 1.0, and the failing is F. 
and you know what grade i just received when the moment i saw my paper? It's 2.5!

Now, imagine how bad my art work is.

And there's more. Humanities is supposed to be a course and not a subject!


oh, dear. I need help :)

What I have learned from life:

IT IS NOT SMART TO BE LESS THAN WHO YOU ARE  

=)

I'm one of the strongest people on earth

Why?

There are so many people on earth, but God has chosen me to handle a very difficult challenge because He knows i'm STRONG and I can over come it all.
