Today, Jesus sent me these to find hope in the hopeless, faith in the impossible and patience in the long wait.

Woke up at 2:30 a.m. and received an email from UNAOC that I didn’t make it to the summer school in New York. I will try next year though and tick off that UN visit item from my list. Fingers
Crossed!!!

Unwinding and spending quality time with my siblings, Kenneth and Kath at Basilio’s Resto, Koronadal city before finally heading back to Davao city…

May14

Today too, I spent time reading articles on winery and blind wine guessing. It’s good to know even just a few info about things I don’t usually pay attention to.

Photo Journal #4: May 13, 2014

Recently, about 200 girls were kidnapped by a terrorist group, Boko Haram in Nigeria. As a lover of children and as a feminist myself, I found this appalling and atrocious. Who on earth can do that? Only selfish vile people! Although hating would never bring back the girls, I somehow couldn’t deny the fact that when I took this photo, I FELT that. A hashtag can’t do anything but to persons like me, this only shows support to the victims and their families.

                My prayers go to the girls who were victims of this kidnapping.

1,000 Notes from Heaven

“1,000 Notes from Heaven” is one of my works of mercy. I promise myself to write a thank you letter, give a gratitude note or send an appreciation message through email or other social media to at least 1, 000 people. I believe this is one of the best ways to be a blessing to my neighbors and to fulfill the will of Jesus for me. This activity leaves me looking forward to each day. You should try it! I just want to inform you beforehand, however, that this activity is addicting. Yep, at first, I was a little hesitant and shy to write a thank you or praise note to random people (usually in restaurants) and even to individuals I know but believing that this simple act of kindness will make them see the world in a better light pushed me. Now, I extremely love doing it without a tinge of reluctance.

The List

1. Ate Icely – my friend

2. Jacky  – my buddy

3. Jayron – my classmate

4. Edwina – Vendor of Squid balls in Victoria Mall

5. Barrio Bistro Staff – a restaurant

6. Mang Ineng’s – a diner

7. Michelle – my co-lector in Sta. Ana Parish

8. Kuya Lito – my co-lector and mentor in Sta. Ana Parish

9. Ate Tetchi – my co-lector and partner in Sta. Ana Parish

10. Ate Mayang – my aunt and former professor in NDMU

11. Kristina – my childhood best friend

12. Ma’am Jearvy – my classmate in my USEP French class

13. Ate Kristy – my co-lector and friend, a psychologist.

14. I honestly forgot who’s no 14 but certainly, there’s someone who received a thank you from me.

15. Gee and Kath- from Dunkin Donut’s (May 29, 2014)

Thank you Gee and Kath for the smile! :D

Thank you Gee and Kath for the smile! 

  • I will do my best to take photos next time. By the way, my parents and siblings always get hugs, kisses, gifts and thank yous from me so for now, they’re not included. 😀

Photo Journal #2: May 11, 2014 (Sunday)

Today, I decided to see Jacky, my best friend, at a chocolate shop which I first thought of as a chocolate restaurant instead of meeting at a packed fast food resto. I finished two cups of hot choco and a slice of chocolate mousse cake after having a mixture of aimless chatters and serious talks with Jacky for almost two hours. We, then, headed to KCC Malll cinemas and waited for Princess, Tata 1, Tata 2 (our house helps) and Ate Lilian (the wife of my uncle, Gerry) to watch the Amazing Spiderman 2.

Meet Jacky! :D

Meet Jacky! 😀

Photo Journal #1: May 10, 2014 (Saturday)

There’s actually a reason why I always chose to stay in South Cotabato for a short while and never for two weeks or so. You see, I didn’t (not anymore) like the past. As I kept on burying my past, I realized how totally unfair it is for these persons whom I decided to totally shut off from my past. It dawned on me that abruptly closing relationships and forcing myself to forget about people from my past (although, they didn’t hurt me in any way) do not heal. Part of healing is facing the cause squarely. Certainly, thinking about persons in the past as actors on a movie that one can just easily remove at the click of remote button isn’t tying the strings at all. It’ll just worsen the wound, instead of healing it.

So when one my former college classmates texted me to come to the reunion, I said yes and decided to leave Davao to meet up. It turned out great. We in fact, discussed teaching experiences and activities we currently engage ourselves on. And although some consumed the conversations and yacked about random things; I didn’t regret coming to this college reunion at all…
