i’ll rant here (baka rito walang grammar check!)

because my effort didn’t pay off. even if i have devoted my weekend, weekdays studying for an exam. or even if i have prepared and researched well for my assignment, i still didn’t get the score that i need. it remains four!

ktnxbye!

Fan of Lib!

im a library fanatic!!!

outside the library.
the right side is where i usually utter my prayers and have fellowship with friends. the front side is where i wait for my friends and sometimes my place where i usually talk with new friends. the back side is where i usually conduct my cell meetings. the left side is too noisy, i think that is where BIG fans are located!

inside the library.
my relationship with ‘inside the library’, is something intimate and peaceful. that is the place where i find peace and focus, where i rest and sleep in the middle of my review, and simply…my place.

below is a picture of UPLB library, my first favorite library. 🙂

Hello World!

how are you?

hey folks, i know that i haven’t written much anything here. not anything with good sense – not something that could uplift your spirit, or break your heart, or at least awaken your curiosity. nothing! this page is becoming so boring that you could even decide to remove it from your blogroll. Lol. my last post is dated last february! wow! and today is already july. i can’t think of any valid excuse (at least valid for all of you. hahaha).

i have my usual work, been here for the past 3 years of my life. just adding some side activities in my career. oh, well. boring things to share right. hahaha.

well, for the past months…i was gone for cheap travels. it is not the usual long weekend getaways that we can have a laidback life. since i climb mt pulag last january, i have been dragging myself and enjoying climbing mountains. i became an instant fan of outdoor stuff and outdoor shops! when i go to malls, i make sure to pass the outdoor shop. even though items are generally the same, sometimes i find something unusual and new at their shop – like an expensive bandana or a very small towel! or a compass or a pedometer. outdoor shops is my forever21(at least for now). 🙂

with the cheap travels, i learned to value the companionship, friendship. companionship and friendship that can traverse the kahirapan sa pag-akyat ng bundok, the scorching heat, the heavy back pack, and whatever. hahaha. i particularly love the camping – bonfire, socials, laughter, and craziness!

after the fully loaded summer, somewhere on the last week of april, i finally decided to get back to a serious life of nerds and school. yes, graduate school welcomed me. it took me x persons to be my advisers and long y hours of talk…and finally deciding to let go one of my precious ‘dreams’. not really letting it go but at least letting it go for now. i have completed and submitted my requirements at grad school on the last day of its application. i had hard time getting responses for recommendation – its summer and maybe some of them are not even checking emails. Fast forward, i finally entered grad school!

grad school that first few weeks are so exciting and next weeks after that are brain drainer. hahaha!. the idea that I’m back with my stat books and theories excite me everyday. that passion gives me energy to work and study at the same. that same passion drives me to seek God’s favor and excellence in my life.

with grad school comes challenges of being in a new school, of pool of strangers, of 3-year backlog in the academe world and to my field per se. but what comes with these challenges is my drive to push myself harder. to at least value the favor, the stage of life where i am right now, the little time of idleness or sleep, the smile and laughter of your friends, that friends who never fail to support you in anyway, that someone who would be there to listen to you from your nonsense argument to senseful thoughts, or those who would give their special time to you.

i can’t think of a glamorous ending for this entry. too much hanging and clattered thoughts, so would it be fine if i’ll just say….

i’m okay and i’m living a life! Thank God! 🙂

until next time, dear few readers! I hope it will be sooner.

The World Needs Men…

The World Needs Men…
• who cannot be bought;
• whose word is their bond;
• who put character above wealth;
• who possess opinions and a will;
• who are larger than their vocations;
• who do not hesitate to take chances;
• who will not lose their individuality in a crowd;
• who will be as honest in small things as in great things;
• who will make no compromise with wrong;
• whose ambitions are not confined to their own selfish desires;
• who will not say they do it” because everybody else does it”;
• who are true to their friends through good report and evil report, in adversity as well as in prosperity;
• who do not believe that shrewdness, cunning, and hardheadedness are the best qualities for winning success;
• who are not ashamed or afraid to stand for the truth when it is unpopular;
• who can say “no” with emphasis, although all the rest of the world says “yes.”

Psalm 138:8 in a MUG

Thank you, Lis for this gift. 🙂 I am not sure if this is a Christmas or a New year gift or just a gift — – anyway, thank you! And thank you as well for that special note, I am really glad that Sheena wrote notes for us. I was surprised! (*Parang fan lang*)

 

 

The simple mug became special because of its unique and creative design. Everyday, this would always remind me that God is working out for His plans in my life.

I was also reminded of the business we are planning to set up – no concrete plan until now! But I hope we could come up to a good plan soon. 🙂
