Happy Halloween

On Halloween the thing you must do is to pretend that nothing can frighten
And if something scare's you and you want to run
Just let on like Halloween's fun.

Halloween reminds me of my scary experiences in Davao from my old dormitory.
Scarcity and fear had given me funny experiences then. This is my first ever post for Halloween since I started blogging so everyone have a

Happy Halloween
enjoy the feeling of being afraid :D

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
