If you want to go up, you have to let go



Just this morning, we had our first meeting with our teacher Sir Romy Amarado in one of our major subjects which is Business News reporting. Wearing his faded jeans and checkered black and red polo, our teacher started to give us an overview about the subject.
At first, I thought that this subject would be one of those boring classes I have but surprisingly, it turned out to be so interesting for me. He made mentioned about how important business news reports are in our society and all those stuffs. And what struck me most is when he mentioned that “If you want to go up, you must learn how to let go some baggage in your life”.

Certainly, we are living in a world where almost everyone want to excel in their chosen fields may it be in their studies, wok, business, and etc. And of course, I am one of those. Hahahah! Chos! :)

Seriously for me, it really takes a lot of courage for you to let go some things in your life that you’ve holding on to for such a long period of time. Having that fear that we couldn’t live without it is just one of the reasons why it is not that easy to do it.

But as we grow up, we experienced a lot of things in our lives which empower us to learn and allowed us to prioritize things. At some point, we have to let go things that would somehow hinder us from achieving our goals no matter how much it may hurt us. Letting go may result into some changes. But embracing those changes for you to be a better person is just worth the risk. I remember this bible verse that talk about “letting go” and so, I’ll share it with you. :)

Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us. - Hebrews 12:1 

a new beginning



Here I stand


I can't look back, never again

The past is the past, gone forever

I refuse to think about it

It’s too painful; too wonderful

Too overwhelming



I shake my head


I can't think of that now

I must look forward

But looking forward is scary

Painful. Wonderful. Overwhelming.



But I must take a look at the future


The new beginning

I left my head up

Unafraid. Prepared. Ready.



Ready to start again


I walk forward

Growing more confident with each step

I can do this, no problem

I walk on, away from the past

And into the new beginning!

There is inside you all of the potential to be whatever you want to be, all of the energy to do whatever you want to do.
Imagine yourself as you would like to be, doing what you want to do.
And each day, take one step towards your dream. And though at times it may seem too difficult to continue, hold on to your dream.
One morning you will awake to find that you are the person you dreamed of, doing what you wanted to do, simply because you had the courage to believe in your potential and hold on to your dream.
- Donna Levine



I’ve read this quote when I was browsing over the internet for some inspirations. And with this quote, I feel so enlightened with the worries that are bugging me for how many weeks.

I am writing this post at exactly 3:30 in the afternoon. I don’t know how to start to explain to you what I’m feeling right now. Pardon me if I have a wrong grammar with this post. I just wanted to express what I feel at this time. Let me share with you what happened to me this week.

 First, this week was our enrollment for the Second Semester. I thought I would not be enrolled this week because of the long process I’ve went through as a scholar of our university. At one point, I feel a bit hopeless because there are this people you thought would help you but later on would decline to help for whatever reasons.  But in God’s grace, I was able to make it through!

Second, I feel somehow hurt when some people in my life that I thought would always be there but then just because of certain events, they leave me hanging. I want to cry all day but I just couldn’t do it because I have a lot of works to do. For once, I want to travel and be alone. I want to be in a place where I could just be with myself. When I don’t have to think to a lot of things, and let myself be relaxed. But I know, I’m still young to be able to do all the things I wanted to. Perhaps soon, when I’ll be able to graduate and have my job, maybe that would be the time.

I just hope, things would be better soon.  Life really sucks at times but I believe, God always have better plans for me. :)

It’s been a long two weeks for me. Before our final examination week started, a lot of projects were given to us by our professors. Urgggh! We just couldn’t complain since all of those are the requirements for us to have our grade and avoid having an INC (Incomplete) Grade for this semester.

After the countless sleepless nights of editing and finalizing of the videos, script, and voice over, we were able to make it. We were so happy for a little achievement :) :) :) The heartwarming comments that our professors uttered during our defense for our 15-minute investigative report wherein we featured the Human Waste Disposal of some squatter areas within Dumaguete City just made us feel so relieved. Thank you Lord!!

I believe that God’s grace has really been with me for this semester. And I thank Him for such blessings. Even though I’ve faced a lot of problems, but His provision never stops and He let some people be an instrument in helping me and my family. God is just so good :)

Thank you for reading this post. Have a great week everyone. Be blessed! :)

Amazing Bohol :)
















This trip was such a unforgettable trip for me. First, I almost wouldn't be able to go with them since I already woke up at 7:00 am and our scheduled trip was also at 7:00 am. Hahahah :) As a result, I haven't take a bath that whole day. All of my classmates teased me but, I did not care at all.

We were able to visit to the various tourist destination around Bohol including the famous chocolate hills the Baclayon Church, and the Loboc River. I had also the chance to meet and greet the little cute tarsiers. We stayed overnight at Panglao Island and that my first time to see a real white sand. Nyahahahah :) Indeed, Bohol was such a great place where you just can relax and feel the nature.

Thank you for reading this post, Ciudao :)

One Real Friend :)





As the years pass, 
and we grow apart, 

I want you to know, 

that you're in my heart.




You helped me through problems, 
through things good and bad.

You helped me keep smiling, 
even when I was sad.





And where the years take us, 

No place is too far, 

we will think of each other, 
wherever we are.





You're a wonderful person, 

with a good heart to lend, 

and I want you to know, 
you’re an amazing friend. :)

steady my heart


Wish it could be easy
Why is life so messy



Why is pain a part of us
There are days I feel like
Nothing ever goes right
Sometimes it just hurts so much

But You're here
You're real
I know I can trust You
[
Even when it hurts
Even when it's hard
Even when it all just falls apart
I will run to You
Cause I know that You are
Lover of my soul
Healer of my scars
You steady my heart

I'm not gonna worry
I know that You got me
Right inside the palm of your hand
Each and every moment
What's good and what gets broken
Happens just the way that You plan

And I will run to You
You're my refuge in Your arms
And I will sing to You
Cause of everything You are

You steady my heart 












This is a song of Kari Jobe entitled “Steady my Heart”. Just a little background of Kari Jobe, she’s an American Christian Singer. She started singing at the age of 3. And she’s one of the Christian singers I admire most. :) I first heard this song through Youtube and the first time I have listened to it, I got LSS (last song syndrome thingy) Nyahahahah :)
Seriously, I’ve come to reflect this song to what I have experienced. I’ve been in a relationship where I thought it would really work yet at the end, a broken heart is what I got. Oh yes, I just thank God for saving me from such relationship. And now, I’m on the state where I feel so contented with what I have and enjoying every blessing God is giving me every single day.

In life, there’s such a point when you just follow and follow your heart without even thinking if it’s worth the risk. But after you would get hurt, you would really learn. God is there, He knows everything. And no matter what would happen, He’s there ready to rescue you when you feel like you’re drowning. He restores broken hearts. He heals broken souls. For now, I just pray that God would continue to steady my heart. :)

Soon, I’ll gonna say goodbye..







Two years back then, I applied for this organization as an affiliate for their Writing Department. Luckily, they accepted me and gave me the chance to be a part of this family. They believed with my talent in writing, they trusted me that I can handle tasks, and they gave me that opportunity to develop myself more to become a responsible individual. 
 
Now, I’m on my last year to be with this organization. Time flies so fast that I couldn’t imagine that I was able to make it through. The sleepless nights I’ve spent with my co-stupendous writers, the adventurous travels around the external campuses I experienced with them, the laughter and cheers I had with the Pylonites are memories that forever will be in my heart. My college days would never be that fun without the Pylonites. 

Soon, I’ll bid goodbye to this family. I’ve realized this when we had our IPR. That was my last IPR. Although March is still far, I slowly feel the sadness and that thought that I would really miss this people. And no matter how much I wanted to stay and be still called a part of the Pylon Staff, I know I have to go soon, and be a part of the Pylon Alumni. 

with the stupendous writers and Danica :)
with my teammates :D

Let me share with you this short poem I've made for my Pylon Family


The hardest part of any friendship
is when it is time to say goodbye,
and even though I wished I could stay,
I know I have to go and let my wings fly.

For life is a journey that needs to be traveled
Though  I am uncertain if I'd make it through,
I just want you to know and never forget
that I will surely miss all of you.

So I'll follow my heart and never give up,
as dreams and wishes do come true,
for I know that someday we'll meet again,
because in my heart, I will always be a Pylonite!


Thank you for reading this post, Ciudao! :)

souvenir from Malaysia :)



Just last Friday, one of my major teachers gave us some souvenirs from Malaysia.  Tenterenteren... 
It's a key holder with miniature figures of Malaysian ladies, I think :D
I found it so creative especially that their heads have a description of their country "Malaysia" :)
It's handmade by the way. :)

I found it so creative especially that their heads have a description of their country "Malaysia" :)
It's handmade by the way. :)
