Failures at its finest

The most painful part in life is when someone encounters misfortunes, failures, goals in life that were not achieved, and so many circumstances that affect our ability to share a genuine smile to someone. I would like to share my simple outlook about FAILURES. When I say, I failed on something I refer to a circumstance where I want something to happen, I want something to achieve but it really did not happen. Failure to me is something that makes my heart very sad to the point of breaking it and cry. Every time I failed I cry, and I have cried a lot of times already because of failures may it be in my career, family, relationship, work, and others.

Crying isn't bad at all. It helps me relieve the pain I have in my heart. It helps me accept the fact that I have failed. Crying is not just the cure, talking to friends and finding someone to listen to you also helps a lot. After I have poured out everything through tears, I'll try to get back on track, look back to where I have stopped and then identify what are the factors why it failed. Then, if it is worth fixing I'll try to fix it applying a different way but if it is not already worth fixing I'll take it as a lesson and then possibly go to other direction.

Motivation is the key. You need something that will motivate you to move forward again. Sometimes, you will not be able to find it yourself but someone can find it or give it to you. Seek for it.

Loving you,

Me and my Lenten Reflection

I grew up being close to my Nanay (Lola) . I really love my Nanay to the point that everything she says I follow. I really look up her. I remember when I was just a grade-schooler she would tell me

 "day, dili ka mag spaghetti strap ug suot hah", 
"day pag mag byahe ka dapat mag jacket jud ka", 
" day ayaw ka mag suot ug shorts na dili mutaas sa tuhod hah"

and so many things including the so many "pamahiins". I followed her because I love her so much. I listened to her because she is my Nanay and I know she knows what's best for me. Yeah! so that is why when I was in highschool I was a "boyish" type of a girl. In college, I was the "demure" type and today... I am the conservative type (eh?)

She passed away the day after my birthday and that was one of the saddest part of my life. The person I love just left me and is already gone. 

Remembering this, and reflecting on this...I realize I am the kind of person who would listen to someone I cherish the most. I am the kind of person who would value someone so much to the point of imitating him or her. I am the kind of person who would remember a person I love 'til the end of my life. 

And today, as I remember how Jesus died on the cross... how Jesus died for my sins... and how Jesus suffered just to save me... I tend to ask myself.. have I been living this life into the image and likeness of Christ? my Jesus Christ who have sacrificed His life for me? am I worthy of HIS life? I know I love Him but have I been listening to him? Have I been following him? Who am I to just simply recall His death and not live according to His word... ?

as I was again reflecting on this and recalled my life one year ago when I had my "way of the cross" year 2015... I thank Jesus for what He has done. I thank the Father for His forgiveness... that even though I am a sinner... I know I am already saved through Jesus.

The Feeling of being here

This moment when I am alone in this place...
Looking at different types of people.. Wondering how their lives could be a lot different from mine...
Thinking of so many things,
Doing a lot of things,
Trying to accomplish something,
and many more...

the life of a teacher...

Blue Moon and Blood Moon

This is what a total eclipse looks like.  This is the total eclipse of October 27, 2004 via Fred Espenak of NASA, otherwise known as Mr. Eclipse.  Visit Fred's page here.I confess… I am a frustrated “Astronomer” I always wonder how it really feels to be just standing at the tip of the earth looking at the dark universe… how celestial bodies looks like… I was and I will always want to be a Scientist who travels on spaceships and lands on different planets studying the land texture and everything ( black holes, moons, planets, stars, nebulae, and galaxies )… Unfortunately, the sad truth is… I was born in a Third World Country and education is a privilege… where it is almost impossible for me to be there… so what can I do now? Just a simple stargazing will do… it makes my heart happy, happier and the happiest…

One last Good deed for 2013

Last December 21, 2013... the UIC-ITE Program had their community service. A service to the community... awesome right??!! 💪,  and luckily I was assigned to be a part of a group who will clean up some Estero. We arrived at the area around 8 in the morning and started to walk at the assigned area for about 3 – 5 minutes.

Well, under the heat of the rising sun 🌞🌅, together with my ever dynamic and energetic co-faculties Sir Flores,Sir Benablo and Sir Pitlo with some “langas” and “kiat” but “kugihan” ITE students I had a very memorable moment. To my surprise, the supposed to be Estero cleanup; turned out to be a coastal cleanup. But its okay that’s no big deal ... ^_^

It was a very tiresome but happy experience for me.

I think that was the last MAJOR good deed I did for my countrymen for the year 2013.

So, chow for now dearest readers... enjoy some of these photos. ..

PS: OH by the way!!!.. credits to the owner of the photos :)

Just Anyhow

What a one whole day to be here in CDO... I started my day so early to prepare myself for the seminar... I was so excited since I was expecting a lot of information to process today.. hehehe.. and I was not wrong about it... 

Well a seminar about plagiarism or plagiarism itself is nothing new to me... been hearing it (plagiarism) since high school i think... but when i was in the seminar.. there was something in me that was renewed... it was like i said to myself “ I need this” hahahaha... it was a wake up call for me since being an educator I am always telling my students different kind of information that was cited from diffrenet kinds of media (books, webpages and even opinion of others) without even properly citing the author.. (shameful) 

I am quiet amazed to see a lot of known names in the field of research in the seminar... now im hesitant if unknowingly i am plagiarizing some text in this post... hehe.. to share my learnings for today i would like to mention this... 

I had learned that even if you were able to paraphrase the sentence of the original author as long as the thought is still there.. IT IS STILL A FORM OF PLAGIARISM!!!!.. 

Well i am planning to write a more detailed report on what had happen to me here in the National Conference on Plagiarism but im afraid its time for me to sleep to welcome my second day here in Cagayan tomorrow.. so bye for now...

By the way.. i almost forget.. the TECHIE THING software called GRAMMARLY and TURNITIN... were so COOOOLLLL.. i mean (*** 0_0 ****)

Welcome 2013

Hi dear readers… its been a long time since the last time I posted something here… For the year 2013.. this is my first post.. hehehe…

I have been very busy for the past few months.. career pathing.. decision making and a lot more activities.. Last night I was reading a book authored by a Filipino writer but was written in English. The book was all about being Moral. It tackles about many different aspects of ethics and morality. I was curious when he asks “ why do people strive to become moral?” Is it because people believe that there is God above who will punish us if we become not morally upright? “What if there is no God? Should we be not become moral at all?” an atheist exclaimed. 

Well, in my humble opinion… the reason of my existence is because I believe I need to do something in here (in this planet ^_^). I must say I highly believe that GOD created me and that GOD have been guiding me all this time. My parents have been the vessel of my creation… GOD had wanted me to realize all of this things.. and that GOD is the only and will only be the author of my life.. I am just the actress of HIS novel.. and I believe that in the story of my Life I AM THE LEAD PERFORMER… Imagine??? How many life stories God has been creating and continually writing for all of this time… my story, your story and every one of us stories… 

I may have had downs… and I’m so glad I never have been in those down moments for a very long time… I learned how to stand and stand again every time I fall… You know what makes me stand all over again????  MY DREAMS…. No not dreams at all… my aspirations… I have so many aspirations in life… and no one can stop me from fulfilling those aspirations.. I may pause for a moment but I will never stop…

2013 is another year for me to walk into the path for which the Lord wanted me to follow. This year is another interesting year that will let me experience the love of the Lord. I might be encountering another challenge but I am pretty much sure, with the love of my friends, family and everybody who loves me, I can be the woman and the person whom everyone can be proud of. 

I just hope and pray that my quest for satisfaction will also inspire others (especially my students) to also strive and reach for their dreams. 

And my quest starts now ...Thank you 2012. Welcome 2013.
