Goodbye and Welcome


This year is soon to end and yet I'm still not that prepared. But whether I like it or not I know it's going to end. And I got no choice but to leave this year with gladness. This year has given me a lot of experiences that I need for the near end of my student life. The exposure, the confidence and self-esteem for myself. So far in my long journey this year I have discovered the potentials, friends, and skills that I have as to what I can do. I have come up with so many realizations that I was able to surpass. I once felt like I was a burden but I thought of it as a challenge for an improvement. Then, without realizing it, I tried to improve myself at the start of each new day of course, I have achieved quite a lot in the course of time. Anyone can do this, it costs nothing and is certainly very helpful. Whoever doesn't know it, must learn and find by experience that a quiet conscience makes one strong. I'm only one of the few there who have courage enough to own their faults, or resolution enough to mend them. I will end this year by bringing all the good and bad memories with me as I meet the New Year together with my family. More obstacles are to find me in the next year. And I'm looking forward to fighting all that comes my way. But among all those that I've said I will never leave the memories I had in this year because memory is a way of holding on to the things you love, the things you are, the things you never want to lose. And this year will always be a part of my life.


Before the end of every year we are always ask of our New Year's Resolution and here I am to post mine. If you'll ask me for my New Year's Resolution, it would be to find out more of what I can do. As in more. My New Year's resolution is to stick to a good workout plan that will keep me healthy and happy. I know. I'm lazy. But I made myself a New Years resolution is that I would write something really special for myself. Which means I have until December, right? I came up to a resolution as safe as this because I can't say if I can really do all my resolution if I'll specify them all here. But in all fairness I am able to do the resolutions I've made last year. So hopefully on this year I can do my resolutions too.

Vote!

From my last post about Christmas I will go farther from holidays first and will remind us guys of the coming election next year. I would like to remind myself of this before leaving 2009 because until now I'm still not a registered voter. For the reason that I am in doubt of where should I register and also because of my lazziness to do it. Maybe I won't anymore register until the next election. But to those who have registered themselves already I would just like to tell you to always vote for principle, though you may vote alone, and you may cherish the sweetest reflection that your vote is never lost. Anything important is never left to the vote of the people. We only get to vote on some man, we never get to vote on what he is to do. It is better to vote for what you want and not get it than to vote for what you don't want and get it.
The vote is a trust more delicate than any other, for it involves not just the interests of the voter, but his life, honor and future as well.


I think it's important to vote. So you must vote for hope, vote for life, vote for a brighter future for all of our loved ones especially for our country. To vote is like the payment of a debt, a duty never to be neglected, if its performance is possible. When you get ready to vote, make sure you know what you are doing.

Ho Ho Ho!



I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when people open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really are brothers and sisters. I do like Christmas on the whole.... In its clumsy way, it does approach Peace and Goodwill. But it is clumsier every year. Instead of being a time of unusual behavior, Christmas is perhaps the only time in the year when people can obey their natural impulses and express their true sentiments without feeling self-conscious and, perhaps, foolish. Christmas, in short, is about the only chance a man has to be him/herself. Isn't it funny that at Christmas something in you gets so lonely for I don't know what exactly, but it's something that you don't mind so much not having at other times.



May the spirit of Christmas bring you peace, hope and may the warmth of Christmas grant you love.

MALIPAYONG PASKO SA TANAN!

Originals




my second poem about friendship

to my inspiration for this poem
i hope you'll know that it's you
after reading this.
wahihi! LONG LIVE!

Whatever we tell
Will give us the will
Not to break us apart
But to make us do our part

We are the trio
That cannot be separated by ego
Wherever we go
Still our friendship will do

The memories are there with the ambiance
That is brought to us by the distance
But in some instances
The connection never decreases

I feel so blessed
And have nothing to manifest
To the friendship we’ve shared
That will always be remembered

I will always reminisce
All the days with your presence
I promise to bury
Our friendship that will never be blown away

The One That Got Away: A Repost

In your life, you’ll make note of a lot of people. Ones with whom you shared something special and ones who will always mean something. There’s the one you first kissed, the one you first loved, the one you lost your virginity to, the one you put on a pedestal, the one you’re with…and the one that got away.

Who is the one that got away? I guess it’s that person with whom everything was great, everything was perfect, but the timing was just wrong. There was no fault in the person nor flaw in the chemistry, but the cards just didn’t fall the right way, I suppose.

I believe in the fact that ending up with someone, finding a longtime partner that is, does not lie merely in the other person. I can actually argue that an equal part, or maybe even the greater part, has to do with the matter of timing. It has to do with you being ready to settle down and commit to someone in a way that goes beyond the little niceties of giddy romance.

How often have you gone through it without even realizing it? When you’re not ready to commit in that mature manner, it doesn’t matter who you’re with, it just doesn’t work. Small problems become big; inconsequential become deal breakers simply because you’re not ready and it shows. It’s not that you and the person you’re with are no good; it’s just that it’s not yet right, and little things become the flashpoint of that fact.

Then one day you’re ready. You really are. And when this happens you’ll be ready to settle down with someone. He or she may not be the most perfect, they might not be the brightest star of romance to ever have burned in your life, but it’ll work because you’re ready. It’ll work because it’s the right time and you’ll make it work. And it’ll make sense, it really will.

So that day comes when you’re finally making sense of things, and you find yourself to be a different person. Things are different, your approach is different, you finally understand who you are and what you want and you’ve become ready because the time has truly arrived. And mind you, there’s no telling when this day will come. Hopefully, you’re single or be in a long-term relationship, or be married with three kids…it doesn’t matter. All you know is that you have changed. And for some reason, the one that got away, is the first person you think about.

You’ll think about them because you’ll wonder, “What if they were here today?” , “What if we were together now, with me as I am and not as I was?” .The one that got away is– the biggest “What if?” you’ll have in your life.

If you’re married, you’ll just have to accept the fact that the one that got away, got away. Believe me, no matter how fairy tale you think your marriage is, this can happen to the best of us. But hopefully you’re mature enough to realize that you’re already with the one you’re with and this is just another test of your commitment, one which will just strengthen your marriage when you get past it. Sure, you’ll think about him/her every so often, but it’s alright. It’s never nice to live with a “might have been,” but it happens.

Maybe the one that got away is the one who’s already married. In which case it’s the same thing. You just have to accept and know that your memories of that person will probably bring a nice little smile to your lips in the future when you’re old and gray and reminiscing.

But if neither of that is the case, then it’s different. What do you do if it’s not yet too late? Simple –find him or find her. The very existence of a “one that got away” means that you’ll always wonder…what if you got that one? Ask him out to coffee. Ask her out to a movie. It doesn’t matter if you’ve dropped in from out of nowhere. You’d be surprised, you just might be “the one that got away” as well for the person who is your “the one that got away.” You might drop in from out of nowhere and it won’t make a difference. If the timing is finally right, it’ll all just fall into place somehow. It would be a great feeling in the end, to be able to say to someone, “Hey you, you’re the one that almost got away.”

3rd Year 1st Sem




First sem of my 3rd year in college just ended. I find it still light and easy. Lol because I was still able to handle and solve the school stuffs and problems that I needed to take care so I can get through with this stage. Some of my subjects this semester are the subjects that I don't like such as Physics, Philippine Literature Accounting for Non Accountants and Discrete Math because of numbers and the rest are the major subjects of mine which includes Multimedia, File Organization, Prinos, and the only minor subject that I love, Speech Communication 3. Hehehe I would just like to say this to the following teachers in each subject.

Sir Cole

As our teacher in Physics 2 I find you really funny in every time you give your lecture for each day of our meeting. I like the way you handle your students with your strictness and even with your foolishness. I admit I didn't like you at first because we find you very terror but as months passed that impression vanished and was changed into adoration. Because we were honored to have you as our teacher in that subject and it's only in our section that you are not hot tempered unlike that in the other section Hehe. We learned a lot from you in that subject though I only gave an average amount of effort to it.

In both of my subjects that you handled I admit I really hate numbers but it is in your discussion that I find understanding and appreciation for it. I am just sorry for getting low grades in each examination because due to some reasons I can't do many things at a time and someday I know someday I'll find the courage to do this words that you always keep on repeating in both Physics and Discrete class "READ and UNDERSTAND".


Mam Vanessa

Our preggy "libog" teacher hehe. Hi mam! thanks for the grades and friendship in Facebook haha. Among all the teachers this semester, you are the most appealing teacher for us *cheering *clap! *clap though you turned fatter because of your pregnancy hehe you are still sexy in the eyes of our boys in the class. Haha You are at first a very frustrating instructress haha because you tend to change your mind so quick that we don't know if you are just teasing us or if you are really serious with every decision that you release because you are so repressive. And you are so moody! we are sometimes confuse of your attitude. But so far you are the only teacher who made us write the numbers from 1-500 in our booklets, before giving the questions of the final examination. And have made us memorize pages of definitions for each topic per term. Imagine!? Haha but I still thank you because you were able to give us the challenges to pass in your subject. Wohooo.

Sir Ping

To you our File Org and Prinos teacher I always salute you for the efforts to your sideline. Lol. I idolize you for being able to find humorous jokes to cheer up your students while you are giving a 40-70 slides lecture per meeting in your subjects, despite the boredom that you see from us, you can still understand us, that to think you do a talk non-stop talk from your previous class up to our class but you can still manage your patienece. And you only eat biscuits during your break time with water. Hahaha. Though we only get to see you during classes you still allow us to have a contact on you (kaya pag tinetext ka napupunta ka kaagad timing naman at wala kang lakad ahahaha)


Sir James

We only meet on Mondays but sad to say there are a lot of holidays in each month that is hitting our schedule on your class. I know I was not that attentive anymore to our class starting on prefinals and up to finals. But I want you to know that I still learned more things from your lectures, that I was able to use in my passion "to be". Thank you for answering everything that I asked you about Photoshop because it was able to give me additional knowledge. Keep working Sir! Lol


Sir Winjay

I thank you for giving us the kind of lecture that we've been longing to have. We thought you'd not be able to deliver your discussions so well. But unexpectedly, despite the mispronunciation of words hehe you are still able to provide us the learning that we ought to have. You marked me NFE but I'll see you on Tuesday for the defense of our system ;)

Mam Accounting

I admire you for the patience you have given to the class and for the way of teaching you've done to make us understand the basics of accounting because I know its hard to teach and let students understand and appreciate accounting especially if it's not really their interest to learn about it. Like me, at first I thought I won't understand anything about accounting because of numbers, but eventually because of you I was able to comprehend. And was eventually became attentive in listening to you. I love Journalizing. Lol


Mam Teresa

I wont deny that I really hated you for the way you handle our Philippine Literature class. But when I forced myself to understand you because of the subject that you handle I know what you really feel for handling it because Phil Lit is pure stories, pebbles, myths and etc so you have nothing else to do but read and ask us about it. And if your students are not that attentive I believe that you should look for other alternatives to get our attention but even if you didn't, as your students of course we respect every teacher's strategy in monitoring the class. To you Mam, I wanna ask sorry for everything that had caused you pain and insult. I accept that I have sinned. And thank you for staying what you are, as a teacher, until the end of the semester.

To all of you, my teachers,I know that you all deserve each student's respect. Bow! See you next semester except to Mam Van :D

Once Again....

Glossy Black Button Icon

Yehey! I'm so happy that now I already know how to make icons like this because before I was wonderin' if buttons/icons like this can also be done in Photoshop. And now I already know the ways to come up with this kind of output. Through the same tutorial site, I am able to accomplish this one.



In this case you only have to make use more of the blending options. Hehe. I don't know if I can recall all that I have learned in this tutorial but all I can say is that I already know the other uses of the other tools of Photoshop, and that tutorials in the web was able to help me a lot for learning this new things I've known.

Hope that you can also learn new things from that site because I just did!

Online Tutorial Learning


For how many times that I'm just passing by in that site, it's only today that I decided to try doing some of their tutorials. The first one is a picture of a "Text Effect" it is supposed to be a "Grungy Text Effect" but since I wasn't able to download patterns and textures for it to have an outcome like there in the tutorial it's the only output I got for what I did. The second picture is a tutorial on "How to Create a Rain Scene" which I think I didn't also get the same output. (Basta my rain scene yan na. Lol)




Rain Scene



This two are the first works I've done after following the tutorial from this site pixel2life.com

Follow the link and you can do works like this!

Blogging As my World


Blogging has always made me feel so relieved in everything that I feel in each day of my life. With or without having any significance to each happening daily, blogging has always comforted me in times of breakdowns to say all that I feel out Loud. I've been blogging for "years" now but I can't exactly count the number of years because I stopped blogging before due to my studies.

see my old blogsite here


I want to pursue in blogging but with earnings this time because it is still somehow related to my course. For an extra allowance, it can help me, as they said there is no harm in trying so I'll try it by signing up into any advertisers.

Right now I serve Google and Nuffnang Ads.
Hope that you will enjoy my posts here in my blog.
And eventually you can help me earn =)

Speech for Finals

Fear to Expectations


We should realize that we should always do right things that will gratify some and astonish the rest. Never idealize others because they will never live up to your expectations. What we see depends mainly on what we look for. To free us from the expectations of others and to give us back to ourselves. Our circumstances answer to our expectations and the demand of our natures. We should never allow our fears or the expectations of others to set the frontiers of our destiny. There will be little rubs and disappointments everywhere, and we are all apt to expect too much, but then, if one scheme of happiness fails, human nature turns to another. If the first calculation is wrong, we make a second better, and then we find comfort somewhere. It is finally when you let go of what people expect you to be and people's perceptions of you that you're able to be the version of yourself that you're supposed to be, like in God's eyes. It doesn't matter if you're half crazy, or eccentric, or whatever it is - that you have to be true to who or what you were born to be. Expect much from yourself and little from others and by that you will avoid incurring resentments. Our desires always disappoint us, for though we meet with something that gives us satisfaction, yet it never thoroughly answers our expectation.


Human beings must have action, and they will make it if they cannot find it.
There is no scarcity of opportunity to make a living at what you are expecting, there's only scarcity of resolve to make it happen. Make everything as simple as possible, but not simpler. We are what we think. And all that we are, arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, there are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth, not going all the way, and not starting. Simply put, you believe that things or people make you unhappy, but this is not accurate. Every choice you make has an end result. Patience, persistence and perspiration make an unbeatable combination for success to yourself and others expectations as well. Do all of you meet your expectations? People are just as happy as they make up their minds to be. We may never be strong enough to be entirely non-violent in thought, word and deed, but we must keep non-violence as our goal and make strong progress towards it. Practice does not make perfect. Only perfect practice makes perfect. Your expectation open or closes the doors of your supply if you expect grand things and work honestly for them they will come to you; your supply will correspond with your expectation. My philosophy of life is that if we make up our mind what we are going to make of our lives, then work hard toward
that goal, we never lose, but somehow we win out.


In myself alone, I know there is nothing I cannot do. Because yesterday’s failures are behind me, tomorrow’s successes are yet before me. And I will make today the very best day of all, for this day begins the rest of my life. I refuse to let others predict what I may become because I alone hold my destiny in my own hands. The station of my life is too precious to give to others the handle for me. I will aid my teacher in every way possible, to ensure that my life is on the right track. I realize that if I want to succeed that the first step must truly be my own. Likewise, I realize that if I want to fail, that too, is my choice. I agree that I should not select to fail, and I do not have the right to take my teachers and other people with me. I just have to figure it out for myself and my expectations are there to pull me away from those positive views I have in mind. I got to be careful if I don't know where I'm going, because I might not get there. As we know, a man who becomes conscious of the responsibility bears toward a human being who affectionately waits for him, or to an unfinished work, will never be able to throw away his life. We should know the "why" for our existence, and we will be able to bear almost any "how", because if we did the things we are capable of, we would astound ourselves. As I know more of mankind I expect less of them, and if you accept the expectations of others, especially negative ones, then you never will change the outcome. Now for me, I'm just afraid to face the expectation that people has for me especially my father, because I know somehow I should give a reciprocate for all those things that he did relinquished for the whole family. But how can I do that if I got such a very low self-esteem for myself that even if I am aware of what I can do, I can't relax with it. And that I may have to face the fact that my work will be apparently worthless and even achieve no result at all, if not perhaps results opposite to what I expect. Probably because, a thing long expected takes the form of the unexpected when at last it comes. But even if most of my expectations fail I still value them for giving me such failures to what I expected. Because we should really not depend on the hope of results.


Life is NOT "Supposed to be Fair." Know that there is no single way that life is "supposed" to be. Demanding that life meet our expectations is a sure fire recipe for a miserable existence. Life is a game with no rules because life just happens to us regardless of our best intentions. Our only path to happiness lies in being open to receiving whatever life throws at us, with Gratitude. Have NO Expectations of life because we are not in this world to live up to other people's expectations, nor do we feel that the world must live up to anyone of us.



This is my speech for our practicum in speechCOM 3 and I’m proud to say that I received 95 as my grade for this. I don’t know the bases of that grade but all I felt is gladness for receiving it as my grade.

I’d like to thank
Clark Javines for printing two copies of this speech for me. Thanks to Mam Katerina Vanessa Ladia for the grade that she has given to it and I would like to congratulate myself for being able to submit this speech on time with a short time of preparation only, like (an overnight preparation?)
Laugh out Loud.

Patience is Waiting..


Most of the time I am simply not patient enough, quiet enough, to wait for anything especially if I can do a certain thing without waiting. I always say that I wish I have a long patience, just like other people, such as friends. I tell them I wasn't born with it. I have to learn it. Everybody has patience, but some can just make better use of it than others. Like me, I can't handle my patience most of the time I always burst every time that I can't take control of it, for some reasons. That's how impatient I am. But this time, I need to take control of my patience in waiting even if it would only give me a bit of time for a stay.


I can only give patience to some things if needed. To wait is all that I can do because I got no other choice. It is far better to take things as they come along with patience and its the only key for everything that I want to happen.

I'm just hoping that I am waiting for SOMETHING and not for NOTHING

Special Thanks

The intramurals has ended. I really had very great and joyful time especially during the pageant. I am glad that I was able to acquire the self esteem that i badly needed, for that experience to represent my team and at the same time my school. I'm proud of myself for being in the top 3, among the 20 candidates, and was given the rank of 2nd runner up for the said event. I would like to thank everyone who had helped me in everything that I needed in order to achieve the goal that we aimed. Thank you to NARENE, for forcing me to join, (thou she only had no choice for choosing me, haha) and for the words of encouragement that she has given me that made me decide to pursue what I have started. To YAYING(Lady Anne) for being my make up artist during the pictorial at Ritratto and for her willingness to really look for ways to find dresses for me (thou I wasn't able to use them) you still supported me all the way. To WHENG, MARLON and CARL who answered some of the questions for the q&a portion, for all that you taught me, thanks! To Kuya Xtian for motivating me. To MEEBO for letting me borrow her uniform and bag for the school attire (haha, nagkasya xa meebo weee, sa dib2 lang masikip, bwahaha)To SHAI who communicated with the "gay artists" (peace)who handled everything for me in the pageant esp to Kuya Marylon(my handler) and to his assistants. To all those who shouted and cheered for me because your yells made me more confident. To all of those who VOTED through text poll, that even though you are not here, you still gave your efforts and support for me.


To all of you who supported us, really THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts.

Jas and Reo at yer service nyahaha

I think we all wish we could erase some dark times in our lives. But all of life's experiences, bad and good, make you who you are. Erasing any of life's experiences would be a great mistake.


Be brave, take risks, like us Lions. Nothing can substitute experience guys! No air, no air..Bow! Hehehe

20th Mi Ate Birthday


Whether the day is good or bad,whether I'm feeling happy or sad,
If I have a need, you’ll comprehend you’ll be there to share and be a friend.
Other people may fill my day, but never in such an important way
We support each other ‘round all life’s bends, and it feels so good that we are friends.

It's such a pleasure and a joy to have a friend like you.
You always care, you're always there, you say the right things, too!
You make me smile when I am low.
You're just a pure delight, we talk a lot about everything;
You make my life so bright!
I hope that I am giving you some joy and happiness,
Because you mean so much to me,
More than I can express!


I LOVE YOU Ate q..
Very Much.....

Happy Birthday!

Emotions

There is always something ridiculous about the emotions of people.
There are moments in life, when the heart is so full of emotion, that if by chance it will be shaken, or into its depths that sometimes when tears overflow you can't gather them together. The degree of one's emotions varies inversely with one's knowledge of the facts. You might be wondering why I posted about emotions. It is just to save an unexpected moment, a while ago..

We, the candidates for Ms.ACLC had our workshop on how to answer the Q&A portion and was given tips in joining pageants. After the discussions in each tips we we're asked several questions to be answered and was like teaching us on how to deal with questions. When it was already my turn I had 3 questions the first is 1.) How will you improve the children's understanding about the importance of organtonation? 2.) What do you consider yourself, a giver? or a taker? Why? I forgot the last question but it has something to do with the province where I was born. That's it.

In that questions, the second one made me cry. Because to substantiate my answer I need to give further explanation or example by using my personal life. And that would include my family or should I say my parents. In substantiating my example, I wasn't able to handle my emotions. I'm not really that good in handling my feelings especially when it is going to be about my parents. It is because it reminds me of my mistakes for being selfish sometimes, for wanting to take anything that I want, not minding that is more important than having what I demand which I shouldn't have done specifically to my mother. The unexpected thing there is that I was still able to speak a sentence for my answer while I was crying which is very unusual to me because whenever I cry, I don't want to speak at all but in that situation I was able to do it. I don't know how to explain my side coz my emotions ruled over me. It is not because the truth is too difficult to see that we make mistakes...but the truth that you have done it and you still don't to realize what it wants to imply. I can only say that:

Your intellect may be confused, but your emotions will never lie to you


Control your emotion or it will control you.

Thinking of the possible personal questions regarding families in the search is what I'm feared of because I know when my tears starts to fall I cannot have that fine answer anymore. And that's for sure that I will loose the competition when that happens. Thou I am still hoping that I can overcome with it.


Quote for myself:
"I have a woman's body and a child's emotions.”

InfoTech Shirt

First time to design a t shirt for our department. Nobody appointed me to do this design for us. I myself is the only person who decided to do a design for us because I want to wear t shirts that I have designed, during the intramural days. And here are the pairs I was able to finish:


It is to be printed at a 200p cost including the t shirt. I was just glad that however, I was able to come up with my own simple design. I took this chance to have my own souveneir and not to deprive others from having a t shirt with this design too. I'll be printing this two designs so I'll have my remembrance for my effort to this.

I have always tried to hide my efforts and wished my works to have a light joyousness which never lets anyone suspect the labors it has cost me. every accomplishment starts with the decision to try.

Which is yours?

My Photography


I always thought of photography as a naughty thing to do. That was one of my favorite things about it, and when I first did it, I felt very perverse.


Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still. To me, photography is an art of observation. It's about finding something interesting in an ordinary place... I've found it, that it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.


Look, I'm not an intellectual. I just take pictures. I take photographs with love, so I try to make them art objects. But I make them for myself first and foremost that is important. Photography for me is truth, it's because there is only you and your camera. The limitations in your photography are in yourself, for what we see is what we are. As I have tried it, photography produces pleasure by simplicity. I see something special and show it to the camera. A picture is produced. The moment is held until someone sees it. Then it is theirs.

Most things in life are moments of pleasure and a lifetime of embarrassment, photography is a moment of embarrassment and a lifetime of pleasure. And that's what make me love this. I love photography because it is is catching a moment which is passing, and which is true. It tells its own story, shaped by the mood or insights of the person you are at the time you see it. It becomes layered with the past and the present. It need not be of people you. It is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever... it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.

I wish more people felt that photography was an adventure the same as life itself and felt that their individual feelings were worth expressing. To me, that makes photography more exciting.

Here are some of my takes and my simple enhancement for each:

Intramurals '09

For this years intramural, I am not going to be active as a leader for our team. For this intramural I was tasked to make the design for our team's t-shirt. Actually, I was already trying to design a t-shirt for our team even before they assigned the task to me, because I wanted to wear a t-shirt with my own design during the intramurals. But those t-shirts that I designed did not have any concept at all. When I already knew the team names I've had enough concept for each team t-shirts. And below is the output:

Brave Lions
a.k.a
"Low Land Lion"


for our second day of intrams na tshirt




I run out of ideas about the concept, and here is where I ended up. My mind became so dry to think for ideas of the concept due to the rush of events that I will be joining, the meetings and other things to take care. Hope this catches your eyes that you will like my design.

Too much, about the design, I also want to join the pop dance contest by team because I want it to serve as my exercise to help my diet work. Lol. I was also told to do the dance sport but I appointed my other team mates to perform it because I don't think I can handle many events while joining the search too. Sigh!

Point of View

Human beings must have action, and they will make it if they cannot find it.
There is no scarcity of opportunity to make a living at what you love, there's only scarcity of resolve to make it happen. Make everything as simple as possible, but not simpler. We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts. There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth, not going all the way, and not starting.


Simply put, you believe that things or people make you unhappy, but this is not accurate. You make yourself unhappy.Money won't make you happy, but everybody wants to find out for themselves. Every choice you make has an end result. Patience, persistence and perspiration make an unbeatable combination for success. Do all you can to make your dreams come true. People are just as happy as they make up their minds to be. We may never be strong enough to be entirely nonviolent in thought, word and deed. But we must keep nonviolence as our goal and make strong progress towards it. Practice does not make perfect. Only perfect practice makes perfect. My philosophy of life is that if we make up our mind what we are going to make of our lives, then work hard toward that goal, we never lose - somehow we win out.


Tough times never last, but tough people do The best way to predict the future is to create it. I'd say it's been my biggest problem all my life,it's money. It takes a lot of money to make these dreams come true. You can design and create, and build the most wonderful place in the world. But it takes people to make the dream a reality. I must have a prodigious quantity of mind; it takes me as much as a week sometimes to make it up. I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. If you can't make it good, at least make it look good. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it.

Murky Me



I really don't think life is about the I-could-have-beens. Life is only about the I-tried-to-do. I don't mind the failure but I can't imagine that I'd forgive myself if I didn't try. What others say of me matters little; what I myself say and do matters much. I am not myself in any degree ashamed of having changed my opinions. I asked God for strength that I might achieve. I was made weak that I might learn humbly to obey. I asked for health that I might do greater things. I was given infirmity that I might do better things. I asked for riches that I might be happy. I was given poverty that I might be wise. I was given weakness that I might feel the need of God. I asked for all things that I might enjoy life. I was given life that I might enjoy all things. I got nothing that I asked for, but everything I hoped for. Almost despite myself, my unspoken prayers were answered. “I was always looking outside myself for strength and confidence but it comes from within. It is there all the time. “I would much rather have regrets about not doing what people said, than regretting not doing what my heart led me to and wondering what life had been like if I'd just been myself.” When I find myself fading, I close my eyes and realize my friends and family are my energy.





I don't know if I'll continue, to like myself, even today. But what I learned to do many years ago was to forgive myself. It is very important for every human being to forgive herself or himself because if you live, you will make mistakes it is inevitable. But once you do and you see the mistake, then you forgive yourself and say, 'well, if I'd known better I'd have done better,' that's all. So you say to people who you think you may have injured, 'I'm sorry,' and then you say to yourself, 'I'm sorry.' If we all hold on to the mistake, we can't see our own glory in the mirror because we have the mistake between our faces and the mirror; we can't see what we're capable of being. You can ask forgiveness of others, but in the end the real forgiveness is in one's own self. I think that young men and women are so caught by the way they see themselves. Now mind you. You can overcome that. The real difficulty is to overcome how you think about yourself. If we don't have that we never grow, we never learn, and sure as hell we should never teach.
I am Me. In all the world, there is no one else exactly like me. Everything that comes out of me is authentically mine, because I alone chose it. I own everything about me, my body, my feelings, my mouth, my voice, all my actions, whether they be to others or myself. I own my fantasies, my dreams, my hopes, my fears. I own my triumphs and successes, all my failures and mistakes. Because I own all of me, I can become intimately acquainted with me. By so doing, I can love me and be friendly with all my parts. I know there are aspects about myself that puzzle me, and other aspects that I do not know but as long as I am friendly and loving to myself, I can courageously and hopefully look for solutions to the puzzles and ways to find out more about me. However I look and sound, whatever I say and do, and whatever I think and feel at a given moment in time is authentically me. If later some parts of how I looked, sounded, thought, and felt turn out to be unfitting, I can discard that which is unfitting, keep the rest, and invent something new for that which I discarded. I can see, hear, feel, think, say, and do. I have the tools to survive, to be close to others, to be productive, and to make sense and order out of the world of people and things outside of me. I own me, and therefore, I can just be me. I am me, and I am Okay.

PHYSICAL AND INNER-SELF CHANGE



Photobucket

Change is hard for most people.

BUT we must learn to view change as a natural phenomenon to anticipate it and to plan for it. The future is ours to choose in the direction we want to go... we must continually ask ourselves,
"What will happen if...?" or
better still,
"How can we make it happen?"

PHYSICAL CHANGE

Our identities have no bodies, so, unlike you, we cannot obtain order by physical coercion. We believe that from ethics, enlightened and self-interest our governance will emerge. Man's characteristic privilege is that the bond he accepts is not physical but moral, that is, social. But the TRUTH is, I AM, therefore I think! We exist first and then express ourselves as bodies in physical dimension.


Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don't resist them, that only creates sorrow. People change over the years, and that changes situations for good and for bad. Life belongs to the living, and he who lives must be prepared for changes.Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.


The fun never goes out, but it changes with the years, with winning and losing.It is not well to make great changes in old age.Relentless, repetitive self talk is what changes our self-image. For changes to be of any true value, they've got to be lasting and consistent.They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.

I always say that changes despise me, but I realized that at the right time a person will change to become a better person for the future of his or her own self. You can't even notice that you've changed. It's just a matter of time and self willingness.
Time, which changes people, does not alter the image we have retained of them. Face the facts of being what you are, for that is what changes what you are.There are good and bad times, but our mood changes more often than our fortune. The changes in our life must come from the impossibility to live otherwise than according to the demands of our conscience not from our mental resolution to try a new form of life.


To exist is to change, to change is to mature, to mature is to go on creating oneself endlessly. If you want to change your life, change your mind. Thou, any change, even a change for the better, is always accompanied by disadvantage and discomforts.

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

Habits of Effective Teens



This is just suppose to be an advance reading through research for our Euthenics subject tomorrow. Since I can relate to it as a teenager, I posted it here in my blog for my co teenagers to relate themselves into it too.

I have related myself into that habit of:

*
not having time management,
*being reactive,
*the stimulus and response,
*and involvement

And the rest..Just somehow but not really doing it every time, every minute and every second of the day.

Here are the following habits:


- Principles of Personal Choice:
-emphasizes the original sense of the term "proactive" . You can either be proactive or reactive when it comes to how you respond to certain things. When you are "reactive", you blame other people and circumstances for obstacles or problems. Being "proactive" means taking responsibility for every aspect of your life. Initiative and taking action will then follow.

Man is different from other animals in that he has self-consciousness. He has the ability to detach himself and observe his own self; think about his thoughts. He goes on to say how this attribute enables him: It gives him the power not to be affected by his circumstances. This talks about "stimulus and response." Between stimulus and response, we have the power of free will to choose our response.

Principles of Personal Vision:
-this is about setting long-term goals based on "true north" principles. it is recommended in formulating a "Personal Mission Statement" to document one's perception of one's own vision in life. VISUALIZATION is an important tool to develop this.
-organizational mission statements, which claims to be more effective if developed and supported by rather than prescribed.


Principles of Integrity & Execution:
-a framework for prioritizing work that is aimed at long-term goals, at the expense of tasks that appear to be urgent, but are in fact less important. -Delegation is presented as an important part of time management. Successful delegation, focuses on results and benchmarks that are to be agreed in advance, rather than on prescribing detailed work plans.

Principles of Mutual Benefit:
-An attitude whereby mutually beneficial solutions are sought that satisfy the needs of oneself as well as others, or, in the case of a conflict, both parties involved.


Principles of Mutual Understanding:
- warns that giving out advice before having empathetically understood a person and their situation will likely result in that advice being rejected. -Thoroughly listening to another person's concerns instead of reading out your own autobiography is purported to increase the chance of establishing a working communication


Principles of Creative Cooperation:
- A way of working in teams. Apply effective problem solving.
-Apply collaborative decision making.
-Value differences.
-Build on divergent strengths.
-Leverage creative collaboration.
-Embrace and leverage innovation.

Which specify this saying.

“The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.”
The result of the teamwork will exceed the sum of what each of the members could have achieved on their own.


Principles of Balanced Self-Renewal:
-Focuses on balanced self-renewal by engaging in carefully selected recreational activities.
also emphasizes the need to sharpen the mind.


I hoping that you did understand what you just read. And hope this will be able to wake up your sleeping minds, from the real world of teen habits in each of our lives. I hope this habits have
persuaded you to change the usual habits you have. Do this kinds of habits and let it enlighten you. Because we have to be open-minded for this tips to enter our minds without obstacles from realizing its meanings and the message that it has to impart to us.

Trivia for Codes

A day in discrete class. I got to know about this sort of trivia through my classmate in our discrete subject. He shared to me the interesting thing about the that certain book, that he just bought recently, which is about codes and how to read them.

E.g


HL FKZC VD LDS
means
"I'm glad we met"

do you have any idea of how did it become its meaning?



I really adore the author of the book, who was also the author of the "Da Vince Code" book, that I have read before(the very first book I read), of how he was able to come up with this kind of strategy in converting encrypted codes into text.

I'll be waiting for your guess guys. This is really admirable.

Proud to Be, Pinoy!

the first one

To come up with this , you can follow what I was thinking while doing this one. First it my mind there was that three constants in life... the CCP
(Change, Choice and Principles)

Change--is the essence of life. We should be willing to surrender what we are for what we could become. In this kind of work in enhancing every works of yours we change in minds can't be avoided.Wether we like it or not there's going to be a change.


Choice-- for our own selves are the ones who has to decide. Whether you'll do it or toss it aside, you are the person who makes up your mind. Whether you'll lead or will linger behind. Whether you'll try for the goal that's afar. Or just be contented to stay where you are.


Principles not to believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.


the 2nd one

The whole point of getting things done is knowing what to leave undone. If you don't put anything into it, you don't get anything out of it. With this thoughts on my mind while doing this one, this is what I got! I made this for another adobe flash effect for having a sample situation of, a program in school, or anywhere else to where we can perform programs, that has that has invocation, singing of the national anthem, and prayer and etc. but since I still can't post the embed code of my whole presentation I will let you see the different steps or materials I have used to arrive with this kind of output. Bow! Just always remember that success breeds success.

Te quiero mucho

28th RACOISIE MONTHSARY

Distance never separates three hearts that really care, for our memories span the miles and in seconds we are there. But whenever I start feeling sad, because I miss you, I remind myself how lucky I am to have 2 someone so special to miss. When I miss you, sometimes I listen to music or look at pictures of you, not to remind me of you but to make me feel as if I'm with you. It makes me forget the distance and capture you. I don't miss you, and you alone, I miss you, and you and me together. I may not see you as often as I like. Whenever I need you I just have to call, pm and text you. No matter how far you are, no matter how long I'm gone, you will always be with me. I will see you always as clear as day, for our friendship knows no boundaries and never will, because you see our hearts are one, and mine is always home.


The test of friendship is not when we are together. It comes when we are not together and realize that despite the distance, the deep friendship is still there. How I wish I could be there with you guys, but distance has kept us apart. Apart physically, but in spirit, you are always in my heart. I miss you when I'm sad. I miss you when I'm lonely. But most of all I miss you when I'm happy. I may have cried million times since I got problems without you guys by my side, but all the times you made me smile, is what will remain in my heart forever.

HAPPY MONTHSARY COISIE!

I LOVE YOU invariably!

Fear to Expectations


There is nothing I cannot do. Yesterday’s failures are behind me,tomorrow’s successes are yet before me. And I will make today the very best day of all, for this day begins the rest of my life.I refuse to let others predict what I may become because I alone hold my destiny in my own hands. The station of my life is too precious to give to others the handle for me. I will aid my teacher in every way possible, to ensure that my life is on the right track. I realize that if I want to succeed that the first step must truly be my own. Likewise, I realize that if I want to fail,that, too, is my choice. I agree that should I select to fail, I do not have the right to take my teachers and other people with me. I just have to figure it out for myself and my expectations are there to pull me away from that positive views I have in mind.

I got to be careful if I don't know where I'm going, because I might not get there. A man who becomes conscious of the responsibility he bears toward a human being who affectionately waits for him, or to an unfinished work, will never be able to throw away his life. He knows the "why" for his existence, and will be able to bear almost any "how." If we did the things we are capable of, we would astound ourselves. As I know more of mankind I expect less of them. If you accept the expectations of others, especially negative ones, then you never will change the outcome.


We should realize that we should always do right--this will gratify some and astonish the rest. Never idealize others. They will never live up to your expectations.What we see depends mainly on what we look for. To free us from the expectations of others, to give us back to ourselves. Our circumstances answer to our expectations and the demand of our natures.


I didn't noticed that my words are getting deeper I really get shocked every time I make or post something different, from my old posts due to the emotional cause. Then now for me, I'm just afraid to face the expectation that my father has for me to somehow give a reciprocate for all those things that he did relinquished for the whole family. For the reason that I got such very low self-esteem for myself thou I'm aware of what I can do, but I can't relax with it. Probably because, a thing long expected takes the form of the unexpected when at last it comes. But however I'm still praying and wishing that I'll be able to overcome this fear of not being able to meet my father's expectation to me when I graduate in this course I'm taking up. Same with my friends. Thanks to the person who reminded me of expectations again. Because of you I was able to post something emotional in this blog site of mine. I owe you this and hope that you know yourself without me, telling your name here.Even if most of my expectations fail I still value them for giving me such failures to what I expected.


How about you? What do you do with your expectations? Do you do the same thing?

Calculation Using SQL Commands


lTo be able to calculate dates and
to be able to make use of SQL commands in retrieving data from two tables here are some commands:


Slide 4
The Table





Date Calculations

mysql> SELECT name, birth, CURDATE(),
-> (YEAR(CURDA
mysql> SELECT name, birth, CURDATE(),
-> (YEAR(CURDATE())-YEAR(birth))‏
-> - (RIGHT(CURDATE(),5)‏
-> AS age
-> FROM pet;
TE())-YEAR(birth))‏
-> - (RIGHT(CURDATE(),5)‏
-> AS age
-> FROM pet;


+-----------+--------------+------------------+-------+
| name | birth | CURDATE() | age |
+-----------+--------------+------------------+-------+
| Fluffy | 1993-02-04 | 2003-08-19 | 10 |
| Claws | 1994-03-17 | 2003-08-19 | 9 |
| Buffy | 1989-05-13 | 2003-08-19 | 14 |
| Fang | 1990-08-27 | 2003-08-19 | 12 |
| Bowser | 1989-08-31 | 2003-08-19 | 13 |
| Chirpy | 1998-09-11 | 2003-08-19 | 4 |
| Whistler | 1997-12-09 | 2003-08-19 | 5 |
| Slim | 1996-04-29 | 2003-08-19 | 7 |
| Puffball | 1999-03-30 | 2003-08-19 | 4 |

the result



mysql> SELECT name, birth, CURDATE(),
-> (YEAR(CURDATE())-YEAR(birth))‏
-> - (RIGHT(CURDATE(),5)‏
-> AS age
-> FROM pet;


l.CURDATE() - gets the current date
l.YEAR() - pulls out the year part of a date
l.RIGHT() - pulls off the rightmost five characters that represent the MM-DD (calendar year) part of the date
l.AS age - an alias for the resulting column
l.MONTH() - pulls out the month part of a date


mysql> SELECT name, birth, death,
-> (YEAR(death)-YEAR(birth)) - (RIGHT(death,5)‏
-> AS age
-> FROM pet WHERE death IS NOT NULL ORDER BY age;



name | birth | death | age |
+-----------+--------------------+----------------+-------+
| Bowser | 1989-08-31 | 1995-07-29 | 5 |



mysql> SELECT name, birth FROM pet WHERE MONTH(birth) = 5;
+-------+---------------+
| name | birth |
+-------+---------------+
| Buffy | 1989-05-13 |
+-------+---------------+


For the second table:


mysql> SELECT pet.name,
-> (YEAR(date)-YEAR(birth)) - (RIGHT(date,5)
-> remark
-> FROM pet INNER JOIN event
-> ON pet.name = event.name
-> WHERE event.type = 'litter';



+---------+----------+----------------------------------------+
| name | age | remark |
+---------+----------+----------------------------------------+
| Fluffy | 2 | 4 kittens, 3 female, 1 male |
| Buffy | 4 | 5 puppies, 2 female, 3 male |
| Buffy | 5 | 3 puppies, 3 female |
+---------+----------+----------------------------------------+


Take Note:

lThe FROM clause joins two tables because the query needs to pull information from both of them
lWhen combining (joining) information from multiple tables, you need to specify how records in one table can be matched to records in the other
lINNER JOIN allows for rows from either table to appear in the result if and only if both tables meet the conditions specified in the ON clause
