Mission Possible: Depriving myself of something for a bigger cause

Finally! I’ve been able to help few students in going back to school this school year!

I started to think about it since last yeat. I did some computations but my allowance is seriously not enough to do this so I told myself to forget about it.

But I can’t.

So I decided to really deprive myself from my cravings. I deprived myself from a slice of pizza, Starbucks, chocolate bars, and many more like MANY MORE! When this started, every single time I feel like eating chocolate or getting a cup of coffee from Starbucks I seriously put my money inside a super duper secured piggy bank.

To make the long story short, I had like less than Php 5000 and I wisely bought super cheap notebooks, pencils, pen, pad papers, crayons and other school supplies which provided 10 students who can’t afford such

It was fulfilling. I wish I had more to give the kids.

I felt happy

(ALMOST) BREAK FROM SCHOOL

It is so good to wake up thinking about there will be no quiz and no exams….

because it’s vacation time!!!!!
And congratulations to me for surviving my third year in the university!

I never even had the minute to update my blog.

But hey I’m so back.
I’ll be writing a lot starting today.

All the love,

Studying (Stu-DYING)

WAKE UP WITH DETERMINATION.

GO TO BED WITH SATISFACTION.

Woah! this examination (hell) week is so far one of the hardest for me in my entire college life  because I have a lot of things to study yet, here I am laying on my back drinking medicines and having a hard time fighting with fever.

Yesterday, I had a high fever and I don’t know what to do because I have to study for my three exams. It was hard knowing that I can’t do anything. But today, I went to school to take my exams because I don’t want to take specials exams because special exams are the hardest and I can’t believe I would say this to myself, I am satisfied with my answers.

Good thing I listened to my professor’s discussion. lol

have a great day y’all ­čÖé

love j.

Have a blessed season full with love and sharing!

LATELY…

How am I feeling?

I am feeling happy these past few weeks with all my college friends and family. Something is just so amazing about them. And right now, I just feel so ecstatic that I had to write this blog. Today was fun, I spent the day with my family. I’m glad that Christmas and my birthday fall on the same day because who needs expensive and materialistic gifts when I get to see my family — the best gift ever.

… and right now, I just feel so overwhelmed by the gifts I have received from everyone.

What I’ve been up to lately?

I am up for the season and by that it means that I’ve been keeping myself busy with a lot of things. We went to Intramuros last week just to get inspired, we also had a caroling session to help the kids in an orphanage, we had gift giving for the children in the community and of course I was quite busy looking for something I can give to my godchildren.

Reading

Sophie’s World by Jostein Gaarder. I started to read this after seeing this on the list of recommended books in Goodreads and the synopsis really caught my attention. It’s something like a book about philosophy and it’s my first time read something written by Jostein Gaarder so I am very psyched to read this. This book is my 99th of 100 in the One Hundred Books Challenge this year and I am pretty confident that I am not going to fail on the challenge.

Watching

Harry Potter Series!!!! Christmas wouldn’t be complete without Harry Potter movie marathon! This is like a tradition!!!

Listening

Since 2011, I always find myself listening to Justin Bieber’s Under the Mistletoe Album. Of course I’m a belieber *winks*

and it just feels so good to listen to Justin (it’s always the most beautiful time of the year)

Thinking

Loved ones who are in heaven.

Thought of the day:

So, we fight, so, we fight through the hurt, through the hurt
And we cry and cry and cry and cry
And we live, and we live, and we learn, and we learn
And we try and try and try and try

On Becoming a Teacher

Today, I had a chance to contemplate about the profession I have chosen.

Right how, I am on my third year in college (and now, I can’t back out).

To be honest, when I graduated high school I didn’t know that I will be taking this path. Like if someone told me in high school that I will take this course, I’d probably just laugh. But hey! Look! It’s my third year!

To be honest, being a Teacher was not on my plan. I honestly wanted to become a writer or a pilot or a flight attendant or a neurosurgeon. But you know, we really can’t tell everything. We plan but things always turn out different the way we planned them.

The next thing I know was I was in front of the university director for an interview. She said I am qualified for the following courses:

1. Mechanical Engineering

2. Electrical Engineering

3. Business Administration Major in Human Resources

4. Secondary Education Major in English

To be honest, I contemplated everything. And this is the only school I passed my papers to. So I had to choose.

1. Mechanical Engineering – Math won’t work with me.

2. Electrical Engineering – Math won’t work with me.

3. Business Administration Major in Human Resources – no more slot

4. Secondary Education Major in English

Yes. I had no choice.

But,

for the past two years, I have learned to love my chosen path.

At some point of our lives, we had to choose over things we should or wr must but we’ll learn to love our choices in time.

And I think that’s okay.

Because the best things in life are the ones we did not expect at all.

Masterpiece

right at this moment,I am an awful masterpiece
left here to be
glanced back on and reconsider.
Enthusiastically as I may try
I’m not the muse the poet speak of
Not made up of the deep body of water, waves or tides, no
My ribcage does not whisper to my lungs,
And my heart is not a precious diamond.
It will at all times be a weapon
more than anything.
I am a vague masterpiece
full of striked out words and evolution
no one ever calls a draft alluring- beautiful.
why can’t I be the last piece?
Perhaps someday, somebody out there will.
