New Year! 2011

January 7, 2011

1. The New Year is the best time to reflect on things, thank our Almighty God for all the blessings and graces received and make resolutions to improve what you have done last year.

2. The silliest way to ring in the new year is to tie cans in a vehicle and roam around the streets.

3. My family’s New Year’s tradition are NO CHICKENS will be served during the media noche because my parents firmly believe that the good luck and fortune will also fly together with the chickens. We also collect twelve circle fruits for the coming year.

4. Every new year, I like to go out with my friends. We pop firecrackers in the streets.

5. I started my countdown for the new year at home.

6. What is my one wish for the world during the new year? For the world in need, I wish peace, love and unity among mankind.

7. If I could have all the chances to go somewhere during the New Year’s Eve, I would still choose to stay at our home. Holidays are best spent when I’m with my family. As they say, there’s no place like home.

A letter to Santa =)

December 10, 2010

Christmas is time for gift-giving, sharing your blessings with the less-fortunate people and expressing love to others. If Santa would drop by your window,what will you wish for this Christmas?

I wish that my family, my mama, papa and yaya will be in good health always. I wish them happiness. I hope I make them proud always with no matter what I do in my studies.

I wish to have more true friends. People whom I can share my victories and failures in life, aside from family. People who would laugh at me when I’m happy and ease my burden when I’m sad. I wish to have genuine friends who will never leave me no matter what.

And for the world in need, I wish for peace, love and unity in our country and in the whole world.

I wish that all mankind would recognize that Jesus Christ is our Lord and Saviour.

I wish love and understanding would always prevail in every man’s heart. I believe that the very reason for man’s existence here on Earth is to glorify and praise God, our Creator.

Begin Again

December 10, 2010

God gives us life and health, loved ones and friends, education and enlightenment, jobs and security, success and fulfilment in life. And now, our Almighty Father surprises us with another gift – a brand new year.

A beginning of a year is the time to make resolutions. Resolutions that would probably change you to a better person. This is not a good practice if we do not end with a collection of broken resolutions. Let us act on our good plans. Let us remind ourselves that we have the acts of apostles, not their resolutions only.

So besides the flare of fireworks and their boisterous bursting, as we sit around the dining table under the load of medya noche goodies, let us not forget that this new year means, another chance of doing better than we had done before.

Only a friend :)

October 16, 2010

It was raining that time when I was egg on to compose a poem for one of my best friend. He is a boy. He could’ve been my first love but it faded when I knew he had a new girl. It was a year ago and I can still recall all the memories we once had.

Its almost a year ago,
When Cupid hit us by an arrow
You and I fell deeply in love,
That sweetly sings like a dove

The times I had with you are worth remembering
Times of foolishness, joys and suffering
You and I are attached in a special way
I just can’t go on without you in a day

You being mindless, adventurous, silly
Kindhearted, emotional and skinny
Whenever I’m down, your wittiness makes me sprightly
You are you and I truly love your immaturity

I can still recall that night
When stars were gleaming so bright
I was shocked when I saw you holding her so tight
I feel so cold and uneasy and I almost start a fight

At that very moment, I feel so much misery
Even though people around me try to make me merry
I thought our love would never end
And Yes! I am just your friend, your very best friend.

Enough Posts? I hope.

BER months =D

October 3, 2010

Christmas season is fast approaching nowadays. You can feel the coldness of the air that swiftly calls. In just a few months, we’ll be saying goodbye to 2010, welcoming the New Year 2011. For the information of others, 2011 (MMXI) will be a common year starting on Saturday. In the Gregorian calendar, it will be the 2011th year of the Common Era, or of Anno Domini; the 11th year of the 3rd millennium and of the 21st century; and the 2nd of the 2010s decade.
The United Nations has designated 2011 the International Year of Forests and International Year of Chemistry, according to Wikipedia. But I’m pretty sure, one question is running in your mind. That is, What can be my future in 2011? What are my accomplishments? What are my major mistakes? What are the events that could change my life and the lives of others?
Find the answers very soon 🙂

A week of…

October 3, 2010

The Seniors of Eastern Visayas State University experienced a nerve-wracking week. Last Friday, we presented a play portraying our sick Mother Earth. The play was all about how can the youth be a part of the change we’re all longing for.
Those who have witnessed the performance of the Juniors and the Seniors of the SLS are very ecstatic of the feedback of the teachers. Especially our Physics teacher, he pressured us to come up with the best presentation. At first, we’re afraid. Maybe we can’t meet his expectation. But I’m so glad that he was very happy with our performance. Thank God! It payed off after tiring days of practices and preparation of the props and costumes 🙂 Congratulations Seniors!

Headaches! Go away! :(

Dreaming Dreams :)

September 7, 2010

We all dream, right? We sleep every night and we wake up every morning. Unluckily, others don’t. Ha! Ha! LOL!’ I’m pretty sure we could recall what we have dreamed last night. They say, dreams are series of mental images and emotions during sleep. These are imaginative thoughts processed by our brain while we are asleep. I’m gonna share what I have dreamed last week, I guess. It was very tragic yet very deep dream. It was very emotional. It was about my father, saying goodbye. He says, he must go to a place away from us because we’re in danger if he is with us. In the middle of my sleep, I was crying! Then my mother, beside me, woke me up. She asked about what I have dreamed. I told her the story unknowing that my father was also listening. After which, my father hugs me tight and he volunteers to sleep beside me.
Recently, I have been dreaming of the world. I was travelling around Mexico. In my dream, I’ve been meeting Latins, Americans, British and many races. How I wish it was true! Yeah! Someday, I hope. Now, if someone ask me, what dream is, my answer would be, a dream is a hope, a wish and an aspiration. Dreams can also be a reflection of what we really feel. It is a contemplation of life issues and matters of life and death. Maybe, we can’t really interpret all our dreams but I believe that these are natural phenomena also created by God to motivate ourselves to reach our ambitions in life.

Each and every one of us has special memories form our past, no matter how good or bad those memories are. Some memories are worth remembering and some of them must be forgotten. I say forgotten because it hurts much to cling unto the memories you once had. Letting go is a part of life. Yes, its hard especially when you love the person and you know that person loves you too. Amidst of these letting go, what keeps you going? Yes! Its HIM, our almighty God. Our Almighty God who loves us very much. We come to him with a broken heart and a weary spirit and He will uplift our spirit to become whole once more.
