THE 2015 AGENDA

NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTION

This may seem early for everyone - a month and a week before the year ends for doing a list for resolutions. I never really consider them as resolutions. They are my motivation. They are my 2015 agenda.

QUOTES AND REVIEW: THE BLOOD OF OLYMPUS BY RICK RIORDAN

              Finally! I am done reading the newest book of Rick Riordan – The Blood of Olympus. My high school friend and I are both waiting for the release of this book to know if Leo Valdez will find a way to go back to Calypso. Did he? Well, I don’t want to be a spoiler so I want you to read the book.

            If you have finished reading the book you might notice that most of the quotes I like are from Nico’s POV. I appreciate how Rick Riordan let his readers see how some of his characters have changed. I am talking about the characters of Nico di Angelo and his father Hades the God of Death. I never expected that the author would give Nico his change to “clear the air” with Percy’s character. I literally clapped my hand when I read what Nico told Percy (it is the last quote in this blog).

            Although my friend and I both agreed that the ending is a really a cliff hanger, we are glad that everyone (I mean the characters) are happy. Anyway, here are the quotes feel free to comment your favorite.

I AM ON WATTPAD

HopeForZero


            I am writing on Wattpad. I have three stories that are on – going, two poetry compilations and a story that I pledged on #JustWriteIt. My username is @HopeForZero. I chose the name because at that time I have been thinking, “I have nothing to offer but love. I have nothing to give but love. And, all I ask is a spark of hope.”
            Here are the summary of my stories. If you are on Wattpad you can read them here. If you are still not a member you can register using your Facebook account. You may register here. And viola you have limited access of different genre of stories. Don’t forget to follow me.

CORNERSTONE DIARY: DAY 13

How was your weekend? Mine was fun and educational. I was so happy because I was able to go to Cornerstone last Saturday (November 8, 2014). As usual the kids were energetic specially my tutees. I thought I share a video with you guys that I’ve created with Magisto. I discovered it when I was searching for a free online movie editor.

            Before the proper lesson, Kuya Cons , encouraged the kids to do an exercise. He said that it was for hand coordination. The kids were able to draw using both of their hands. Butterflies were popular that day. Irish the kid in the video not just doodle one but two butterflies. She was happy that she did it.

ALL ABOUT THESE CATS


CAT
Hello!  Today, I am sharing the recent photos of cats that I have captured. I have been reading photography tutorials for almost a year.  And, I have been so inspired. Aside from writing, photography is one of my passion and identity. One of the tips that lead me to pursue photography is: “You should not only read photography tips. You should exercise what you have been reading. Show yourself what you have learned.”

TEN RULES TO A HAPPY LIFE

Rules to a happy life

1.    Be the best of whatever you are. Based on the poem of Douglas Malloch we must be the best of whatever you are. Because we can’t all be captains, we’ve got to be crew. There’s something for all of us here. How great is that? Every one of us has a place and purpose on life. I understand that we dreamed to be somebody else. But what will happen to our society? Think. If all of us were granted to be captains who will be the crew. If all of us are leaders who will be our followers that will do our bidding? Think. If all of us are super stars who would be our die-hard fans? Be the best listener if all you can do is to listen. The secret is to embrace the person that we are and be the best of it.
