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?
