a tribute

december 22, 2007:

after working hard in the past weeks for the college activities, we're finally given the 16-day vacation for the holidays. our batch decided to have an outing of some sort before we go on our own ways (we live in pretty scattered locations around the country) two of us would be staying here in canlubang, one in cabuyao, two in makati, one in parañaque, one in mandaluyong, one in cebu and two in pampanga. too bad cielo was not able to go with us, but bhaby and kuya alan went with us. we ate lunch in tagaytay. It was a very filling meal as we feasted on japanese food. as we were dining, i kept on looking at the faces of my friends, trying to capture mental images of them that i could store in my head for the next sixteen days. true enough, i have grown fond of each one of them. they are the family i chose for myself. they are the people i turn to when i have a bad say at school and even at home, they are the people i turn to when i find myself lost and in pain. they understand and they stand by me no matter what. this morning, a friend asked me, "do blessings exist?" i say yes. i was with the best set of blessings God has ever given me. people who make me feel appreciated and accepted. they are the people who can be brutally honest with me , people who never make me feel that i am alone but at the same time, they make me do things the way i want to. i am overwhelmed with gratitude for having a great set of friends like them.


I'm hopeful, yes I am, hopeful for today,
Take this music and use it
Let it take you away,
And be hopeful (hopeful) and he'll make a way
I know it ain't easy but that's okay.
Let's be hopeful!

This is a song from the soundtrack of Coach Carter. This song clearly send a message across: no matter how bad things may seem, let's be hopeful, things would get better soon. Just like what people often say: "there's a rainbow always after the rain." For someone who might read my blog, you'd find me at the end of your rainbows, waiting. Let us trust in Him. Things will turn out for what's best.

Coach Carter: Reflection

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. It's not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others. " (Timo Cruz)

Being a mediocre can be really tiring. I used to complain about my high school teachers pressuring me to excel in the things I do, but now, it is tiring to have them to make me do things beyond my capabilities. i want to excel in the things i do, i want to go beyond what people expect me to do, i want to be great. i want to show them i can. i want them to believe i can.

Candle on the Water

losing hope...
losing faith...
with knees shaking,
and lips trembling...
i come to her side and seek the comfort i need...
the candle in the dark waters...
my light...
my hope...

to my guardian angel... *ehem*

mic test, mic test...*ehem*

i dedicate this song to a close friend of mine who has been there to see me through all my imperfections and tell me that these imperfections don't make me much less of a person. He believes in me. That's one thing that is very important to me...
thank you so much. you really are my angel.

sometimes i think lola's death is sort of a push for the rest of the family to come together and act like a real family. i am scared na baka 'spur of the moment' lang to. that's why i am trying not to enjoy it. i am trying not to get used to this. baka kasi mamiss ko pag wala na.

Thomas J. Sennett: What do you think it's like?
Vada Sultenfuss: What?
Thomas J. Sennett: Heaven.
Vada Sultenfuss: I think... everybody gets their own white horse and all they do is ride them and eat marshmallows all day. And everybody's best friends with everybody else. When you play sports, there's no teams, so nobody gets picked last.
Thomas J. Sennett: But what if you're afraid to ride horses?
Vada Sultenfuss: Doesn't matter 'cause they're not regular horses. They've got wings. And it's no big deal if you fall 'cause you'll just land in a cloud.

it is amazing how as kids we can imagine how heaven is like. everything's fancy and dreamy, candy coated and feathery. but when we grow up, everything seems to change, we just have to over-analyze everything and do a lot of philosophizing.

if the feeling is gone...

If the feeling is gone
please don't pretend that you still love me
I can see it in your eyes
and it hurts to admit it
but I can't tell that the feeling is gone.

All i ask is just a little honesty
Though i know that you're not coming back to me
You know i'll do anything to make you stay
But i just have to let you go
If the feeling is gone

There is sadness in your smile
Though you try to conceal it
I can't tell if the feeling is gone

All i ask is just a little honesty
Though i know that you're not coming back to me
You know i'll do anything to make you stay
But i just have to let you go
If the feeling is gone


ever been forcibly waken up by someone from a beutiful sleep? feels bad right? well, i have had one of those... it was really bad. You see, i have been sleeping, i have been living in my world of make believe. i have been running along with a crown of daisies on my head, i have been living a princess' life. i have been living happily with my knight-in-shining armor. we were inlove, we were happy. we were safe in the world we were living in.

but one day, my knight said, "it is time to wake up. we need to face the real world. we need to vacate the world we created for ourselves. everything that we had, even the LOVE wasn't real."

what does he expect me to feel? what does he want me to say? "ah, really? okay!" then, i'd jump out of my bed and live my life in the real world and wave at him happily when we see each other again. just like that? after everything that just happened? He actually thinks it's as easy at that? No, i don't think so, i would have to give myself time. i would have to give myself room to heal. a little more of make-believes, a little more denial, a little more lies... a little more...

a little more, trhen i'll be moving on, and when i do, there's no turning back. i'll be moving on...

i'll be okay.

I am not that strong

In fact, i am very weak.I have gone through a lot and all these trials must have worn me out along the way. i am not that strong. at the end of the day, i am just a child, helpless, weak. i still cry out for help once in a while.

I never really enjoyed my childhood. i have been watched all my life. I grew to be a person who's afraid of what others have to say about me. i have always been afraid of doing something wrong. i have been very afraid of being weak, of not knowing what to do, of not knowing the answers. I am supposed to be the strong one, the smart one the one with all the answers. i feel stupid whenever i can't provide the answers even to my own inquiries. but what can i do? i am no super human, just like anybody else, i am just what i am. a child... all i can do is pray for a better tomorrow...

i am tired. fed up.

"You know how when you were a little kid and you believed in fairy tales, that fantasy of what your life would be, white dress, prince charming who would carry you away to a castle on a hill. You would lie in bed at night and close your eyes and you had complete and utter faith. Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy, Prince Charming, they were so close you could taste them, but eventually you grow up, one day you open your eyes and the fairy tale disappears. Most people turn to the things and people they can trust. But the thing is its hard to let go of that fairy tale entirely cause almost everyone has that smallest bit of hope, of faith, that one day they will open their eyes and it will come true. "

(Marideth Grey, Grey's Anatomy)

My fairy tale's over. I didn't have the happy ending i was hoping for. I prayed hard for each magical moment to last, but like what other people always say, good things never last. It is time to let go, time to snap back to reality and time leave the world of make believe. Life is not always fair. Life may be such a pain in the ass. I am ready to let go, not because i want to, but because I have to. i don't want to hurt anybody. Love can be very choking sometimes. I probably love too much, i probably give too much. Maybe it's time i give myself the love i deserve. Maybe it is time that i step out of the shadows of the people i call for help. Maybe it is time to stand on my own. They won't always be around. At the end of the day, i will be responsible for what my life has become. maybe it is just fitting that i make the most out of it.

everyone's having a hard time completing the requirements imposed on us. but i noticed this morning that i am the most relaxed among my batch. in fact, i am too relaxed daw...when i was in high school, we call our bath the "rushbabies". I like working under time pressure. I like working after a big push. i like working on term papers, a week before the deadline, i like working for field study reports just before time runs out. I am not a good group mate, i am not a good team mate when it comes to scholastic requirements...
i am sorry for giving my group mates a hard time... i am sorry for being such a pain in the ass...

if you'd just trust me... i know what i am doing.
this works for me...

on love...

"Love is not something to be over-analyzed. it's supposed to be spontaneous and involuntary for it is an activity of the heart."

in memory of our Murphy...

totally terrified of what i knew was about to happen, i came late for my biology class...
we were about to kill, skin and open up a frog... what we had wasn't really a frog, it was a toad (read: bigger) i was terrified... sir oliver demonstrated how to paralyze the frog, i sat in the corner crying until kuya ron told me to get up and join the group. i did join them, but i was not looking at whatever they were doing. after a few words of encouragement from almost everyone, i found myself holding the feet of the toad as kuya ron was pithing the head. then i said to myself, "*snap* they actually talked me into doing this thing." i was crying of course... i cried like a kid, like a baby, it was quite embarrassing, now that i look back at it, but at that time,i didn't really care... all i was thinking of was the toad. when it was dead, i helped in skinning it. i found inspiration from grey's anatomy. hahaha! it was there that i realized that i could be a surgeon. we named our frog "Murphy". He was a good frog. He didn't give us a hard time though it took quite a while to kill him completely. I will miss Murphy. But i am still terrified of frogs and toads, especially if they're alive and croaking.

College Retreat

Life is like a pencil...

1. there is something good in you.
2. you need to be sharpened in order to live.
3. in case of mistakes, you are provided with an eraser.
4. remember, somebody is holding you.
5. you have to leave a mark.

Our three-day retreat focused on the pencil module. the points stressed are quite self-explanatory. I enjoyed the retreat. It felt good going back into myself. I needed a break from all the drama and the chaos my life has brought me. I needed this break. In fact, I need more breaks like this. I am not as strong as I seem. I am no super-human. I am weak. In fact, the bruises on my arm would prove that i do not do well with stress. I am an angry person. Very angry, incapable of loving truly, at least not yet. I need to settle things first. I need to solve my issues. I need somebody to talk to. I am tired of running away from everything. I want to talk about what happened almost 14 years ago. I want to speak up.

numbness and oblivion

repeated blows to the chest made me choose not to feel. my heart that was once empathetic is frozen with apathy . i do not to care about anything and almost everything. I find the situation quite amusing, i do not have to worry about getting hurt over and over again, i need not to fear being left behind, i need not to fear losing anything in my life. I sit here watching people around me cry and scream in pain. I must be happy about it. I really do not know. How am i to know? i choose not to entertain thoughts of feeling any emotion. i created this snow castle around me. I live in a world of oblivion. i am no cinderella, i am more like aurora, the sleeping princess. I am in a deep slumber and i don't plan on waking up any time soon. allow me to rest for a while, a little longer please...

seeing double

i live a double life...

a part of me is the shallow, loud mouth people see often... i laugh a lot and i talk a lot. i appear to be rather stupid... a push over...

the other part of me is the cold and bitter person, i speak seldomly but i have the answers. i am the thinker. this part of me is the smart one. i never let my feelings get in the way, this is the part that has forgotten to feel...
somewhere between these two hides the silent deviant... a rebel... a happy rebel... damaged, broken, scrarred, imperfect... but hey, nobody is perfect... i am trying to be normal... i am attempting to live a happy life. I am trying to see the essence of living inspite of all the pain. i am trying to let "me" show... trying to be there for people as much as possible without conforming. i am going against the norms, defying the rules... i am trying to live life the way i want to, guided by the values i have kept in my heart. i follow the inner compass that leads us all to where we're supposed to go... i am risking getting hurt and being rejected. i am embracing all my issues, i am owning my mistakes, i am living and loving it... i love. i try to be human, i am in the process of thawing my cold heart. i am in the process of regaining the ability of feeling---something that i have forgotten to do after all these years...

convinced that i am born for greater things, i try to maximize my potentials... i am done with mediocrity... gone are the years of effortless victories... i will make the most out of every opportunity laid before me... i will be someone significant....
whew... rather ambitious, don't you think???! *winks*

with you...

my life seems to have started anew...
i dunno how long this love would last...
maybe for as long as you don't know how i feel...
maybe for as long as they don't know how i feel...
but each day that passes our way,
i feel as if what i have been keeping inside will let itself out in one way or another...
not now...

happiness is...

having friends who'd stand by you no matter what...
friends who won't ask, they'd just understand...
friends who'd listen even if words are not spoken,
friends who'd give space to grow,
friends who'd respect one's individuality,
friends who'd love and accept one for who he/she is...

having friends like them makes my life worthwhile...
friends who make me happy...

keeping my heart out of sight

some say i have turned into someone as hard as a rock,
as cold as ice,
maybe it is because they do not understand what i am going through...
maybe it is because they really don't know me,
they judge me out of the things they hear about me,
they harshly comment on what i do,
they rarely take time to see what my intentions are...
people misunderstand me,
i am NOT my work...
i am what i am...
you just have to believe...
take time to get to know me,
maybe you'd see who i really am...
you'll see the pain I'm in...
you'll see that i am not as happy as i seem,
i am not as strong as i appear to be...

you'll see that i am broken...

and almost hopeless...

so don't go on making me feel how bad i am for being cold...
i have my reasons...
i need to keep my heart out of sight...
I'm just trying to be fair with myself...
I'm just trying to help myself heal...
give me time...

close encounters...

i am dating...
i have a constant date with this wonderful guy...
He's fun to be with,
He makes me feel good about myself,
He is really nice.
we get along really well.
I could tell Him anything and everything under the sun.
after a long day at school, it just feels good having someone to talk to.

As i walk my way home, i stare at the stars and just admire how He wisely placed everything in its proper place.
I just start to tell Him stories, especially those about my classmates.
I try not to forget to listen to what He wants to tell me.

At the end of each day, I try my hardest to remember that the world may throw at me the biggest of all the problems there is, but then, i have one big God to back me up, there's no need to fear. Everything's gonna be okay, I'll do just fine.

random thoughts

one name: Don Bosco!!!

the foundation week may be over but i am still on high...
last night was one of the coolest nights ever!
that was the time when i felt that i really AM a Bosconian...
happiness just overwhelmed me and it almost made me cry...
true enough, Don Bosco lives on.
he lives in each Bosconian there is, the inspiration he left us is just so great.
I feel really blessed having a saint for a father.
I feel blessed being with people who makes life really wonderful.
