SAVE MOTHER EARTH

How wonderful to watch the sun rise and the way it set
The butterflies that are sipping pollen of colorful flowers
To hear the melodious voice of the birds in the tree
The laughter of the children playing hide-and-seek
To taste nature’s gift from sea and farm
All these are gifts from God
Time past
Man started to abuse nature
The green leaves are starting to turn gold
A sign of poverty, famine or may cause death
Land and water will be different
Marine life may vanish
Fresh air will be no more
Health or even life will be dangerous
 We will suffer
If this catastrophe occur when we are dead we are lucky
Though I doubt that we can find our luck in heaven
We will die!
We will die leaving unwanted legacy to our children and the next generation

Please help protect nature
Help save Mother Earth!
Help treasure the gifts of God
Act now!

WHAT I WORE: BOHEMIAN ATTEMPT

It is when a certain theme is required for a party when I become creative and resourceful in my outfit. Back in College during our Christmas party someone thought that it would be cool to spice up the event by requiring us to wear shorts and we should do something with our hair. My classmates think that I looked like a fortune teller. I think they have not guessed what I am attempting.I just smiled despite myself. :) It would be pretty obvious that I am a Bohemian fan. What do you think?

WAYBACK WEDNESDAY: F2F PRODUCTIONS

            When I was in college I had experienced many things that sometimes I forget if it is part of the curriculum. It was those days that I become a believer of the saying, “Everything happens for a reason.”

CORNERSTONE DIARY: HUMAN ALPHABET

            Teaching is a very rewarding profession.  I’d known that fact since the beginning of my school days. I gained more proof when I started volunteering for Cornerstone.  I have learned that it would take patience, determination, knowledge, and creativity to teach whether you are doing it as a profession or volunteering.

A QUOTE FROM DON'T LOOK BACK BY JENNIFER ARMENTROUT

“You had your moments. And those moments outshone everything.” – Don’t Look Back  by Jennifer Armentrout

            Perhaps this is not new to you. Explaining this quote might result paraphrasing and redundancy. But I will do it anyway. We have our own interpretations of things. We have our own philosophy in life. This is mine. I may have written lot nonsense things here my blog. But you never say a word about it. I believe that somehow you read an article or two that pleases you or a poem that touches your heart. Well, that might be my moment. And that moment is good.

SWEET POTATO

SWEET POTATO FLOWER

            Our neighbor has a small vegetable garden in their empty lot. Once you go to our house it is impossible that you won’t notice it. I don’t know if they planned of having one or it is just a blessing of nature. They have a papaya, wild flowers, and sweet potato. I thought they are going maintain it the old - fashioned way until the vines of sweet potato started to crawl over their fence.

NO REASON TO HATE

  
I have no reason to hate you
I have no right to tell you that you are wrong
Besides, no one really knows what is earthly correct
Unless, what you have been acting is under the demand of the modern society
So really, I have no reason to hate you

I’ve got something better than hatred
Though this one is very much complicated
Unlike hatred this one will make us a bunch of fools

This one can lead us to our smiling thoughts
This one can also destroy our poise
But somehow this is very reason of our existence

Even if we give up on it
Someone will come along and bring it back to life
This one I am offering is hard to explain

Funny, because there are moments that we deny this to ourselves
Yet, its existence is much enjoyed
More than anyone else, offering this is easy
But considering the ratio of our society this is hard

I have no reason to hate you
I have no reason to be sad
Because I have love to give
I have love to receive

I am in love
I am in love with the idea of loving
It so powerful that it outruns some childish hatred

I am in love with the thought of happy possibility
So really I’ve got no reason to hate you
I may had some heartbreaks but I will get over it

WAYBACK WEDNESDAY: GUIUAN AND ITS DANCE

 
I danced even though I did not know what would be the next step. Lucky for me, my  dance partner guided me.

            It had been years since I visited my hometown Guiuan. The last vacation I had was with my cousins on July 2012 to remember the date anniversary of my grandmother. Many firsts happened during that trip: 1. I finance my own travel. 2. I rode in an airplane for the first time and 3. I met with my high school friends.

CORNERSTONE DIARY: THE 24TH AND 31ST OF JANUARY 2015

CORNERSTONE
THE TUTORS
            If I am submitting a journal in my tutorial experience in Cornerstone that is based in Inuman Elementary School I would probably failed. I missed writing or rather publishing for two Saturdays. So much had happened. Luckily, I have taken photos that can compensate the words to fill this diary and some notes stored in my phone.
