My Second Chance

April 5, 2014

I had every reason not to attend this year’s graduation. We already finished our thesis last October, finally had our manuscript bound, finished our clearance and I already had my diploma, TOR and other important documents with me a month or two ago. I could have applied already, could have gone to Manila to pursue my dreams of becoming an IT professional, but I decided to lie low in applying and patiently waited for March 31 although I had every reason not to.

All of those reasons were overpowered with my desire to come up the stage not only for myself but for my parents. It was my way of giving back. It was my way of letting my parents reap what they have sown with blood, sweat and tears, in striving hard to help me get through college. It wasn’t all me, it was all for them. Continue Reading

10 Lessons Fairytales Teach Us

March 27, 2014

I’ve been watching Once Upon A Time  for the past days (one of the many reasons why I haven’t updated my blog for the past weeks). I must say, the people behind the storyline of this majestic TV series are so good in making sure all the stories we’ve grown up with are connected with each other. Due to this amazement I’ve been feeling since I watched the pilot episode, I came up with 10 lessons I personally learned from reading and watching fairytales (even from before). Lessons which remind us why even in our adulthood and old age, we still love listening to, reading and watching fairytales.

On not graduating on time and “being left behind”

December 15, 2013

Note: I have to warn you, this post is quite long and emotional. But if you’re willing to read up until the last word, I pray that you be blessed as well. 🙂

April 2013 was the month I was supposed to finally bid a chapter in my life goodbye. It was supposed to be the month to march up the stage and finally hand my parents my diploma after four painstaking years of college. It was supposed to be the month when finally, after 16 years of going to school, I will reap the fruits of my labor and move on with my life. But on April 2013, I wasn’t able to graduate. And the rest, they say, is history.

Letters to God Project

May 21, 2013

Last week, I watched a movie entitled Letters to God. It’s about a 10-year old boy named Tyler Doherty who has cancer and an admirable faith. Everyday, he wrote letters to God, put it in an envelope and sealed it with a stamp. He gave each letter to their street’s mailman to actually “bring it to God”. A lot of lives were changed because of what he did. Not only were their encouraged to write letters to God, but their faith was strengthened and they realized the importance of both God and prayer in their lives. (If you want to watch the movie, click here [x]) Continue Reading

Why should I thank God?

May 22, 2012

Why should I thank God? I thank God for creation. For the wonderful moon, the beautiful stars, the vibrant sun. I thank God for the night sky, and the daylight. I thank God for the breathtaking views of both ocean and landforms, and even the magnificent sky, with the clouds as embellishments. I thank God for the birds that fly high up in the sky. I thank God for the fish that swim in the sea, the coral reefs that serve us home to these fish. I thank God for the sweet smell of flowers which beautify the lands, for the plants that bear fruit and the trees that give us shade. I thank God for every small or grand thing in nature. I thank God for Creation. Continue Reading
