Trampoline Lifters!

I can never forget this day when our coach asked us to lift the huge and wide trampoline to another place. We walked estimated 80 meters away and the sun was striking hot! We passed through a gate, U-turned, walked to the school's parking lot, and passed through another gate. To my surprise, he asked us to place it near to where it was placed earlier, which was 4 meters away!!! We were like, "Oh, Coach! I can't believe what you made us do today!"

 After putting the trampoline down, coach told us that what we did was fine, because it will help our arms to become stronger and we can use it when we are going to lift our flyers. That's what he said. He was even happy that time for we made it!

Besides, there was no other way (except for disassembling it, but it will take a long long time to assemble it again), because there were bars blocking the way and the trampoline won't fit to the spaces anyway. That's why.

Sigh.

At least it was a productive day today!

I know I am beautiful and everything around me is

Just today, I attended a guidance talk for 45 minutes (because I have to go back to my cheer practice). The Resource speaker who came to school was a lawyer. He tackled so many things about success and hardwork, but one thing from him that I really remembered, and I would like to share it with you also.

The moment you wake up and you face the mirror, if you see beauty, then the rest of the things you see and feel will. By how we look at ourselves affect our attitude, our point of view, and our interaction with the society.

Frankly speaking, I see myself in the mirror everyday as a beautiful creation. Because of this, I feel great! And this feeling affects my mood. The smile I give to people, the kind words I say to them, and the action they see from me are all rooted from how I see myself in the mirror.

The lawyer is right about this. It happens to me. We can even influence other people and do the same thing I do in the morning. There is really someone who has to start this in order to influence others.

This is simple, yet a good motivation, and this can go somewhere amazing!

Remember, everything nice matters.

So, what are you waiting for?

Dear Blog,

I don't know what to do now. I don't know when to fix myself again. I'm being irresponsible, lazy, and happy go lucky lately. Just now, I am in misery.

I just had the most regretful feeling ever! Last meeting my professor in Philosophy collected the journals of students who have completed their entries. It was actually a surprise! I wasn't able to pass mine because I lack one entry. Today, he gave back those journals and announced to the class that those students who have submitted theirs are already exempted in our midterms and can leave the room now! While those who haven't submitted theirs, including me, well, will have to take the written exam. I was so devastated when my professor said that! What made everything worse was when I saw my test paper and gave unsure answers. I guess I'll flank on this.

If only I completed all the entries, I'll be one of those who were exempted today.
Not only that, before we started answering our papers, he also distributed our quiz papers from the previous day. To my surprise I received a failing mark!!! As in big 'F'!!! It was my first time ever in college to fail a class work! That moment I was already low and wanting to turn back time just to fix everything wrong.

Sigh. That was not my only problem.

I also ALMOST fail in my long test in Biology. I got a score of 55 out of 100 items.

I'm so like WHAT'S HAPPENING TO ME?! IS THIS REALLY ME RIGHT NOW?!

I studied the night before, but I guess that was not enough.

Napapabayaan ko na mga academics ko!!!

I want to cry, but crying won't help anything anyway, so I decided not to.

I am also aware that I am no longer helping my family in doing household chores, that I'm being such a bummer at home, that I spend so much money with the things I can't remember, that I become a gluttony, that I no longer prioritize my studies, because I'm happy doing other stuffs.

I am completely out of my mind! I want to return to the real me, the person who I used to be, but how? I am already ruined...

Stunting

I can do what he can do
I can't believe that there was a picture on the internet that looked almost the same as my own picture doing a stunt. LOL! I was amazed to see that dude, that was why I placed together his picture and mine :)

One happy Sunday morning with my little sister

Tricia and I used to quarrel all the time because of one small issue --- cleaning our room. Despite of that, we know that we love each other and I'm happy to be her elder sister. She even runs to me when she's dealing with her problems in school, with boys, with her friends, and etc..

Today, I asked her to join me as we take pictures using the webcam so that I can try the app I just installed last Thursday... and tahh- dahh! here's the outcome.


We just newly woke up that time that's why our eyes look like that :p

Two thumbs up for Gorgeous!


I saw my blockmate's status update on facebook, and I must say I can totally relate with this. It ain't easy being a Communication student, if you just know. We do so many things at a time. In short, multi-tasking. But at the end of the day, we still enjoy the hassle activities we do because we want this, we excel in this kind of field and we know that we are strong to handle everything that's why we survive!

Cheers to all CA!

The truth about us


CHEERLEADING & Stuff

Here’s to the people who say cheerleading isn’t a sport and that cheerleaders aren’t athletes. The very definition of sport is, and I quote, “an athletic activity requiring skill or physical prowess and often of a competitive nature.” We practice just as much as you do. Every day of the week, 2+ hours. We condition, We run, We do ab workouts and pushups and planks. No, we don’t lift weights, we lift our athletes-and we hold them 10-15 feet in the air until our arms shake. Until our legs quiver. Don’t doubt the flyers either. We have more muscle than you seem to think. The amount of balance, leg muscle, and core tightness it takes to stay in the air is unbelievable to someone who has never done it before. We run full speed at nothing, then flip in the air, twist, and land on our feet. We jump. We jump high-without a trampoline. Concentrating on pointed toes, extended legs, tight arms, jump height, facials, and smiling… Ever based a basket toss? You get blood blisters on your hands. Softball sized bruises start to appear like magic. As for the flyers, if you’re not tight, expect to have your back jammed into your bases knee. Don’t forget about the backspots. We are the lifeguards of cheerleading. We save lives everyday. We get concussions, hit, and rammed into the ground. Without us, your flyers would be injured. Sprained ankles, broken fingers, and pulled muscles don’t slow us down. You practice like it doesn’t hurt. Now you have 2.5 minutes on a paneled mat. You have 1000+ people in the crowd every time you go on that floor. 4 judges. 2.5 minutes of horrendous physical activity and we make it look easy. Perfection doesnt exist, but here we go reaching for it anyways. You hit or you miss. Toes weren’t pointed? Deduction. Didn’t stick your tumbling? Deduction. Stunt didn’t hit? Deduction. You all think we’re the prissy girls who always have to have perfect hair and makeup. You’re wrong. At practice, we have messy buns and running makeup. Competitions? Sweats until we absolutely have to get ready. Do you think that cheer uniform is comfortable? It’s not… Sure the hair and make up is fun and gets us in the mood to perform, but ultimately it’s to unite us as a team. To be uniformed and have the same look. Think we don’t eat & are obsessed with being skinny? Good joke. We love food. Not all cheerleaders are mean girls who think they rule the school. We have really good grades and don’t hang out with the “cool kids” and go parties every weekend. We don’t all have starting quarterback football boyfriends or even any boyfriends at all. People see us as stereo types. Its wrong. Cheerleading is in the top 5 most dangerous sports in the world. Did you catch that? Sport. Proven to be in the Top 5 most dangerous, and you still have the nerve to say its not a sport? You’ve got to be joking. Cheerleading is something you have to want and work for. You have to love it and have a passion for it. So you doubt us? Fine. We’ll prove you wrong. Say we’re not athletes? Okay. Come to a practice. Compete with us. You’ll think differently. Say what we do is easy? Try it. I dare you.

I have no contentment in life


I’m tired of being this average person. I get average grades, average skills, and average things in life. Though some people think I’m amazing for I have done these, I have done that, lucky I have these and I have that, but no, they aren’t enough and I’m still not satisfied. I want more.  I’m aiming higher, have extreme and fabulous desires, and whatever I do they just don’t seem to work out the way I wanted.

I still don’t know what is lacking. I always pray to God, always nice to people, always do good deeds to others, always listen and understand them, always prepare things early, always submit everything on time, always save money, always study and train hard, etc., etc., and it frustrates me because I haven’t seen any novelty in myself and in the life I’m living or with the things I’m having.

I’m not a loser, am I?

Sigh.

Aside from not giving up, and finding better solutions to have a higher status, is there still away?

Tuesday, February 14, 2012

Woah!


I know.. you haven't heard much from me. OK, I'll just get to it. I know I have a lot of catching you up to do... I know I've been slack. I know I have lots going on. I know you're probably wondering (maybe) what I've been up to. So... here's part of it.

Last week of January- my class in COM-101 had a guess, and he's a segment producer in ABS-CBN named Sir Von. He talked more about TV Production, and how he became successful in his career, which inspired us, communication students, to perform well in our studies to achieve the things we also wanted, especially the kind of job we want to have.
With Ms. Nancy Conception (professor) and Sir Von (segment producer)

January 29-30- The Communication Department had a Team Building Seminar in Chateau Royale, Nasugbu Batangas. I was one of the students who participated in that activity. Many things of course happened in there, but the highlights were; I was able to finish and reach the 70ft. Altitude rock climbing, won a prize in our group presentation, and wore a floral dress for our Luau Party.




Next to that, when the month of February entered, our training schedule had changed to everyday from MWF. I do not know how to describe the things happening to me. All I know is I am able to survive at the end of the day ....

I'd like to skip more parts ....

February 6- The school had a special guest, Director Pepe Diokno, to give us a talk about the film industry in the Philippines for our Communication Week. It was a pleasure to see him in person that day.



Director Pepe Diokno

February 7- Another special guest came to our school, this time it was Mr. Carlos Palma, a food blogger. He talked about random facts about blogging (which I can obviously relate to) and his life traveling around Asia to discover different foods to blog about. He's cool, awesome, and got SWAG!

Mr. Carlos Palma



February 12- The day the 1st ALLS Grand Alumni Homecoming event was held. Only few from my batch came since we were all fresh high school graduates. Besides, we see each other often that's why the essence of this event did not have much impact to them--- yet.

And since it's February 14 today, dad is the first ever man who greeted me for Valentine's day. He's such a sweet dad ever!

Procrastinating

I still have many things to accomplish this week, and here are the ff:

-finish the audio visual presentation for my high school batch (to be passed on Tuesday)
- review for Psychology 101 midterm exam (this coming Friday)
- make a reflection paper for H-101 (to be passed on Tuesday)
- prepare an informative speech in E-102 (to present on February)

But instead of doing them today, what I did was this...


...smiling in front of the webcam and being vain the whole afternoon.

At least I've finished my laundry this morning. I have uniforms and training attires to wear this coming school days, so as my younger siblings.

Oh well, I guess that's the only good thing I did today, this Sunday. Still, I feel like I've wasted a lot of time.

Saturday, January 21, 2012

Life is more fun with them!

Was with Danica & Andrea at KFC that time. Decided to make a GIF for something new to see on my blog.

A horrible night experience.

I'm blogging tonight using my phone while traveling home. It's hot inside this jeepney and we're like canned tuna at this moment, plus it's already TOO LATE IN THE EVENING, yet it's still traffic!

Going to my main story, an hour ago, after our training, Jaki and I stopped for a while in a convinience store to buy snacks so that we won't feel hungry while we're on our way home. Then, we waited at the pavement for a jeepney ride. As we're standing there impatiently and eating, a street boy suddenly appeared! I was suprised because the next thing that was happening was that the boy forcefully grabbing my food, which was 'siopao' and begging to have Jaki's ice cream! I was having second thoughts, but he already got my food and Jaki's, so I have no any other option but to let that happen. But it was horrible! I thought I was being robbed that instance!

I felt really pissed! Good thing it's just the food that we surrendered and nothing else.

Thanks to God for still keeping us in good condition until this very moment.

Amen.

Just grateful!


Today was a hectic day for many reasons...and at different times today God brought just the right person along my path to say just the right thing to get me through the moment...or even bring me a refreshment and a smile. (Thanks friend!) It was a day God knew exactly what I'd need, and when I'd need it. It's actually like that every day...I just can so easily slide through and not realize it. That's not to say the day was terrible, or to say it was fabulous... I'm just saying there's a grand holy unbelievably amazing God who is watching out for me...and for you. On those days when it may not feel like it, remember the days that it does. Today was one of those days.


Several songs have been playing through my head today: Domino, Beautiful Soul, Something that I want, I see the light ... just to name a few...

What song helps get you through the day? The good and the bad days... I'd love to know...

#simplehappiness

... Is when I can blog wherever I am, whatever I do,and no matter what time it is, with the use of my phone and without needing wi-fi :)

Why haven't I thought of this before?

I could not believe myself

I don't usually bring my make up kit in school, because I really don't apply some when it's just an ordinary school day, plus, I don't want carrying a heavy bag around. But now! Just now... I'm trying to figure out how to fit it inside my bag so I can apply a little amount on my face and do a retouch when I want to.

I don't know, I feel like pampering myself lately.

PS. I only apply light make up, a natural look as possible.

6 hours of training

I had a good start with my Monday! It was productive because of the pep squad. If I were not a member of the team, I might be a fat lousy lady who doesn't enjoy herself by this time being fit, and not to mention., SEXY! (oh yeah!)

Kidding aside, our cheerdance competion is very near, it will be held on February 25, 2012 and everyone of us are getting ready for that event. Finishing the routine, improving our skills, exerting more energy are just the few things we do.

And now, I'm on my way home with my pepmate, Jaki, who lives in the same city. Feeling exhausted, yes, but it doesn't matter for it can be restored.

That's all for this evening. Good night!

PS. I'm blogging using my phone :)

Is there a way ...

to make my upper arms smaller?


I've been doing exercises to make them thinner (both left and right), but it seems like nothing is happening, and it frustrates me.


Any tips or advices out there?

Thank you!
Gotta be me. It's who I am.

A song I love

I was travelling home today, hit shuffle on my playlist and ta-da - a song I haven't heard in a while that somehow just draws me closer to Him and makes me smile and sing a long at the top of my lungs... and so, I don't know where your mind or heart are today. But if you want, listen in and enjoy... the youtube link has the lyrics - it's not a video per se, but someone went to the effort to put the words there for you to watch as you listen...





..." everyday, all the time, music sounds better with you! "...

I think I might do this more often... I know that occasionally I've dropped a song in here and there, but there is something about music that tugs at my heart, draws me close, puts words to what I don't exactly know I even want to say...

Before I leave the house I would like to leave something.

"We should show/see ourselves smiling at least once a day so that we could see the real beauty of life" -Rhadson Mendoza :)


Hi there! I've been blogging here since the moment I woke up. Today is just a bright and beautiful day and it gives me a good vibe!

In just a few hours, I will be meeting my dad’s friend to hand over something, so by this time I should start preparing myself to leave.

And to you, dear reader, enjoy the rest of your day! I hope you're feeling jolly like I am right now!

:*

Recent discoveries about myself:

1.) I love watching BEN TEN TIME MACHINE (so much that when someone will change the channel I'll immediately get mad!!!)

2.) I'm an obsessive compulsive person (maybe because I organize ANYTHING too much).

3.) It takes me 2 hours just to settle a perfect layout for my blog (seriously, just done one today).

4.) I'm starting to be a shopaholic (for clothes and make-ups! YIKES!!!)

5.) I'm starting to cram doing my assignments and  review for quizzes/exams most of the time (I'm not like this when I was in highschool)

6.) I'm obsessed with Jake Gyllenhaal <3

7.) Now I weigh 92 lbs.

8.) Lastly, I always end in this number :)

Good morning!

So, I am trying to get a new blog design going here. Just a little something different. But somehow in the midst of it, I've trashed the content part - part of which is not allowing for comments. That stinks. I like your feed back. It's a part of connection I guess. So, thanks for your patience as I try to figure this out. I know - I'm a techie wanna be - and there are days I am better at it than others - today is not one of those days.

8 minutes...

I have 8 minutes until midnight and sure want this posted before the clock strikes twelve. OK, so I don't have a clock that will strike twelve, but it'll be midnight either way... Eight... Eight... Eight... Here we go.


EIGHT things I did today:
  • 1) Slept until about 2 am... =)
  • 2) Crammed reviewing for my midterm exam today
  • 3) Arrived home at exactly 12PM
  • 4) Ate Tuna Pasta for lunch (mmmmm... delicioso!)
  • 5) Laundry
  • 6) Disappointed some people that I surely didn't want to disappoint...
  • 7) washed the dishes after having dinner
  • 8) Blogged tonight


EIGHT things I DIDN'T do today:



1) Review for my midterm exam tomorrow
2) Finish my assignment in NSTP
3) Attend E-102 Class
4) Eat rice
5) Make a real dinner
6) work out
7) Dust... I really need to
8) Finish this list...

Whew... two minutes to spare... Hope today was a great day for you... What did you do?

It's a little surreal...


... that I'm sitting outside the porch, looking at a sky full of stars, and I'm posting a blog by using my phone. I can't be the only one who thinks... Wow. That's crazy. I think we continue to take for granted the technological advances. Just like we take for granted the star-filled sky overhead. To say this sky is beautiful is an understatement. To say it is awe-inspiring is not enough. To say it is mesmerizing is true but not close to accurate.

Your love, O Lord, reaches to the heavens. Your faithfulness to the skies. (Psalm 36:5)

For as amazing and big and vast and awe-inspiring and mesmerizing and beautiful this sky is... God's love is bigger. And just when I think I can focus on how big it is, God's love is bigger still. And then you think of 1 Corinthians 13 that says Love is patient. Love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast. It is not proud. It is not rude or self-seeking. It is not easily angered. It keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices in the truth. It always trusts, always protects, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.

Then... I think about it again but every time I say the word Love or It, I put in God's name... Or Jesus' Name... And then I stare up at this big ol sky and go ... Wow!! Thanks God for loving me this much. Thanks for loving me regardless, in spite of my faults, through good times and bad...and so on.

Maybe you can go take a peak outside tonight or tomorrow night and catch a glimpse of how big the sky is...and how big His love for you is... It's a lil surreal...

Superstition.

I guess I'm starting to believe the speculation that whatever happens to a person on the first day of the year or every January 1st, it will repeatedly happen to him/her until the year ends.

Why?

It's because when the firecrackers were already illuminated in front our house, which bought by my parents from the market, at exactly 12 midnight, something strange hit my left knee and it started to bleed. I figured that it came from the firecrackers for I'm obviously near those. I was hesitant at first to believe that this circumstance would occur to me again not until another week had passed and something horrible turned out with my left knee for the second time! I slipped on the wet pavement in town and got disgusting bruises. It's not yet healed until now nor the first incident, and I'm not letting this happen to me for the third time!

Trampoline Lifters!

I can never forget this day when our coach asked us to lift the huge and wide trampoline to another place. We walked estimated 80 meters away and the sun was striking hot! We passed through a gate, U-turned, walked to the school's parking lot, and passed through another gate.

Besides, there was no other way (except for disassembling it, but it will take a long long time to assemble it again), because there were bars blocking the way and the trampoline won't fit to the spaces anyway. That's why.

Sigh.

You have to love it and have a passion for it. So you doubt us? Fine. We’ll prove you wrong. Say we’re not athletes? Okay. Come to a practice. Compete with us. You’ll think differently. Say what we do is easy? Try it. I dare you.

I have no contentment in life


I’m tired of being this average person. I get average grades, average skills, and average things in life. Though some people think I’m amazing for I have done these, I have done that, lucky I have these and I have that, but no, they aren’t enough and I’m still not satisfied. I want more.  I’m aiming higher, have extreme and fabulous desires, and whatever I do they just don’t seem to work out the way I wanted.

I still don’t know what is lacking. I always pray to God, always nice to people, always do good deeds to others, always listen and understand them, always prepare things early, always submit everything on time, always save money, always study and train hard, etc., etc., and it frustrates me because I haven’t seen any novelty in myself and in the life I’m living or with the things I’m having.

I’m not a loser, am I?

Sigh.

Aside from not giving up, and finding better solutions to have a higher status, is there still away?

Woah!


I know.. you haven't heard much from me. OK, I'll just get to it. I know I have a lot of catching you up to do... I know I've been slack. I know I have lots going on. I know you're probably wondering (maybe) what I've been up to. So... here's part of it.

Last week of January- my class in COM-101 had a guess, and he's a segment producer in ABS-CBN named Sir Von. He talked more about TV Production, and how he became successful in his career, which inspired us, communication students, to perform well in our studies to achieve the things we also wanted, especially the kind of job we want to have.
With Ms. Nancy Conception (professor) and Sir Von (segment producer)

January 29-30- The Communication Department had a Team Building Seminar in Chateau Royale, Nasugbu Batangas. I was one of the students who participated in that activity. Many things of course happened in there, but the highlights were; I was able to finish and reach the 70ft. Altitude rock climbing, won a prize in our group presentation, and wore a floral dress for our Luau Party.




Next to that, when the month of February entered, our training schedule had changed to everyday from MWF. I do not know how to describe the things happening to me. All I know is I am able to survive at the end of the day ....

I'd like to skip more parts ....

February 6- The school had a special guest, Director Pepe Diokno, to give us a talk about the film industry in the Philippines for our Communication Week. It was a pleasure to see him in person that day.

February 7- Another special guest came to our school, this time it was Mr. Carlos Palma, a food blogger. He talked about random facts about blogging (which I can obviously relate to) and his life traveling around Asia to discover different foods to blog about. He's cool, awesome, and got SWAG!

Mr. Carlos Palma



February 12- The day the 1st ALLS Grand Alumni Homecoming event was held. Only few from my batch came since we were all fresh high school graduates. Besides, we see each other often that's why the essence of this event did not have much impact to them--- yet.

And since it's February 14 today, dad is the first ever man who greeted me for Valentine's day. He's such a sweet dad ever!

Procrastinating

I still have many things to accomplish this week, and here are the ff:

-finish the audio visual presentation for my high school batch (to be passed on Tuesday)
- review for Psychology 101 midterm exam (this coming Friday)
- make a reflection paper for H-101 (to be passed on Tuesday)
- prepare an informative speech in E-102 (to present on February)

But instead of doing them today, what I did was this...


...smiling in front of the webcam and being vain the whole afternoon.

At least I've finished my laundry this morning. I have uniforms and training attires to wear this coming school days, so as my younger siblings.

Oh well, I guess that's the only good thing I did today, this Sunday. Still, I feel like I've wasted a lot of time.

Life is more fun with them!

Was with Danica & Andrea at KFC that time. Decided to make a GIF for something new to see on my blog.



A horrible night experience.

I'm blogging tonight using my phone while traveling home. It's hot inside this jeepney and we're like canned tuna at this moment, plus it's already TOO LATE IN THE EVENING, yet it's still traffic!

Going to my main story, an hour ago, after our training, Jaki and I stopped for a while in a convinience store to buy snacks so that we won't feel hungry while we're on our way home. Then, we waited at the pavement for a jeepney ride. As we're standing there impatiently and eating, a street boy suddenly appeared! I was suprised because the next thing that was happening was that the boy forcefully grabbing my food, which was 'siopao' and begging to have Jaki's ice cream! I was having second thoughts, but he already got my food and Jaki's, so I have no any other option but to let that happen. But it was horrible! I thought I was being robbed that instance!

I felt really pissed! Good thing it's just the food that we surrendered and nothing else.

Thanks to God for still keeping us in good condition until this very moment.

Amen.

Just grateful!


Today was a hectic day for many reasons...and at different times today God brought just the right person along my path to say just the right thing to get me through the moment...or even bring me a refreshment and a smile. (Thanks friend!) It was a day God knew exactly what I'd need, and when I'd need it. It's actually like that every day...I just can so easily slide through and not realize it. That's not to say the day was terrible, or to say it was fabulous... I'm just saying there's a grand holy unbelievably amazing God who is watching out for me...and for you. On those days when it may not feel like it, remember the days that it does. Today was one of those days.


Several songs have been playing through my head today: Domino, Beautiful Soul, Something that I want, I see the light ... just to name a few...

What song helps get you through the day? The good and the bad days... I'd love to know...

#simplehappiness

... Is when I can blog wherever I am, whatever I do,and no matter what time it is, with the use of my phone and without needing wi-fi :)

Why haven't I thought of this before?

I could not believe myself

I don't usually bring my make up kit in school, because I really don't apply some when it's just an ordinary school day, plus, I don't want carrying a heavy bag around. But now! Just now... I'm trying to figure out how to fit it inside my bag so I can apply a little amount on my face and do a retouch when I want to.

I don't know, I feel like pampering myself lately.

PS. I only apply light make up, a natural look as possible.

6 hours of training

I had a good start with my Monday! It was productive because of the pep squad. If I were not a member of the team, I might be a fat lousy lady who doesn't enjoy herself by this time being fit, and not to mention., SEXY! (oh yeah!)

Kidding aside, our cheerdance competion is very near, it will be held on February 25, 2012 and everyone of us are getting ready for that event. Finishing the routine, improving our skills, exerting more energy are just the few things we do.

And now, I'm on my way home with my pepmate, Jaki, who lives in the same city. Feeling exhausted, yes, but it doesn't matter for it can be restored.

That's all for this evening. Good night!

PS. I'm blogging using my phone :)

Is there a way ...

to make my upper arms smaller?


I've been doing exercises to make them thinner (both left and right), but it seems like nothing is happening, and it frustrates me.


Any tips or advices out there?

Thank you!
Gotta be me. It's who I am.

A song I love

I was travelling home today, hit shuffle on my playlist and ta-da - a song I haven't heard in a while that somehow just draws me closer to Him and makes me smile and sing a long at the top of my lungs... and so, I don't know where your mind or heart are today. But if you want, listen in and enjoy... the youtube link has the lyrics - it's not a video per se, but someone went to the effort to put the words there for you to watch as you listen...





..." everyday, all the time, music sounds better with you! "...

I think I might do this more often... I know that occasionally I've dropped a song in here and there, but there is something about music that tugs at my heart, draws me close, puts words to what I don't exactly know I even want to say...

Before I leave the house I would like to leave something.

Hi there! I've been blogging here since the moment I woke up. Today is just a bright and beautiful day and it gives me a good vibe!

In just a few hours, I will be meeting my dad’s friend to hand over something, so by this time I should start preparing myself to leave.

And to you, dear reader, enjoy the rest of your day! I hope you're feeling jolly like I am right now!

:*

Recent discoveries about myself:

1.) I love watching BEN TEN TIME MACHINE (so much that when someone will change the channel I'll immediately get mad!!!)

2.) I'm an obsessive compulsive person (maybe because I organize ANYTHING too much).

3.) It takes me 2 hours just to settle a perfect layout for my blog (seriously, just done one today).

4.) I'm starting to be a shopaholic (for clothes and make-ups! YIKES!!!)

5.) I'm starting to cram doing my assignments and  review for quizzes/exams most of the time (I'm not like this when I was in highschool)

6.) I'm obsessed with Jake Gyllenhaal <3

7.) Now I weigh 92 lbs.

8.) Lastly, I always end in this number :)

Good morning!

So, I am trying to get a new blog design going here. Just a little something different. But somehow in the midst of it, I've trashed the content part - part of which is not allowing for comments. That stinks. I like your feed back. It's a part of connection I guess. So, thanks for your patience as I try to figure this out. I know - I'm a techie wanna be - and there are days I am better at it than others - today is not one of those days.

8 minutes...

I have 8 minutes until midnight and sure want this posted before the clock strikes twelve. OK, so I don't have a clock that will strike twelve, but it'll be midnight either way... Eight... Eight... Eight... Here we go.

Whew... two minutes to spare... Hope today was a great day for you... What did you do?

It's a little surreal...


... that I'm sitting outside the porch, looking at a sky full of stars, and I'm posting a blog by using my phone. I can't be the only one who thinks... Wow. That's crazy. I think we continue to take for granted the technological advances. Just like we take for granted the star-filled sky overhead. To say this sky is beautiful is an understatement. To say it is awe-inspiring is not enough. To say it is mesmerizing is true but not close to accurate.

Your love, O Lord, reaches to the heavens. Your faithfulness to the skies. (Psalm 36:5)

For as amazing and big and vast and awe-inspiring and mesmerizing and beautiful this sky is... God's love is bigger. And just when I think I can focus on how big it is, God's love is bigger still. And then you think of 1 Corinthians 13 that says Love is patient. Love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast. It is not proud. It is not rude or self-seeking. It is not easily angered. It keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices in the truth. It always trusts, always protects, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.

Then... I think about it again but every time I say the word Love or It, I put in God's name... Or Jesus' Name... And then I stare up at this big ol sky and go ... Wow!! Thanks God for loving me this much. Thanks for loving me regardless, in spite of my faults, through good times and bad...and so on.

Maybe you can go take a peak outside tonight or tomorrow night and catch a glimpse of how big the sky is...and how big His love for you is... It's a lil surreal...

Superstition.

I guess I'm starting to believe the speculation that whatever happens to a person on the first day of the year or every January 1st, it will repeatedly happen to him/her until the year ends.

Why?

It's because when the firecrackers were already illuminated in front our house, which bought by my parents from the market, at exactly 12 midnight, something strange hit my left knee and it started to bleed. I figured that it came from the firecrackers for I'm obviously near those. I was hesitant at first to believe that this circumstance would occur to me again not until another week had passed and something horrible turned out with my left knee for the second time! I slipped on the wet pavement in town and got disgusting bruises. It's not yet healed until now nor the first incident, and I'm not letting this happen to me for the third time!
