So I just watched She’s Dating The Gangster tonight with The Babe.

While listening to “Burn” while writing, I can’t help but think about a certain scene on the movie that I most related to. Excuse the song choice. I was on a shuffle, okay.

Well, this particular scene showed how Athena bravely resisted her growing feelings for Kenji. The latter, on the other hand, insisted and said that they should take their chances. For short, he encouraged her to take a big leap of faith with him.

I related to it because I was once an Athena. I was scared of loving because we both might get hurt. But Les, the Kenji of my story, proved that he was worth all the risks. It didn’t matter what others say or think. From that moment, I just wanted to let love take over.

I realized that I just made the right decision. I didn’t know what true happiness means until I took that risk.

Pre-birthday Post

Finally, I’ve found a time to actually blog about something. This time, it’s all about myself, my achievements and somewhat a brief story of how my life has been. I just felt the need to share a little bit of me on my birthday eve so bare with me.

A lot of things had happened for the past 2 years. I know I haven’t been that active because I always say that I’m too busy being a working girl but it doesn’t change the fact that I’m still a blogger. There are moments that I return to just read your posts and reblog some that I can relate to. I must say that there has been a drastic change from what I had seen when I started here. Bloggers are more mature now than before. I guess that’s what you get when you realize you’re not getting any younger.

On that note, I’m turning 22 tomorrow! Yes, I still got a lot of years before my age gets kicked out of the calendar. Teehee. I’m happy for what I have achieved as an individual over the past years. I’m in love with my job and I get to nurture my skills more. I have met a lot of people that I soon became friends with, got clients that were satisfied for what I have done for them (service-wise) and dream weddings that came to life. These are a few things that make me proud as a person. I feel like I’m getting one step closer to reaching my dreams everyday. I get compliments for being who I am today and I also get to inspire other people. 

I’m also about to start a business to help with the finances. You know you’re mature enough when you feel like you have to take a risk and venture other things. Watch out for that! But for the meantime, I’m doing my best to save for a capital with the help of my hubby.

And that’s about it. I feel relieved that I get to write again. It’s one of the things that I miss doing. I should do this often, don’t you think? Anyway, happy birthday self! More cheerful years to come!

He has the biggest heart more than anyone else. His understanding about life taught me how to look at the small details that make the bigger picture. His honesty completes his beautiful soul. His love keeps me going and always makes my heart skip a beat. The way he holds my hand, kisses my lips and hugs me tightly are so unique that I seem to crave more and more everyday. He influences me to be a better person than I was before. He is one of the greatest gifts that God has sent and I’m very lucky to have him.

Happy Valentine’s Babe! My heart screams I love you so much!

One thing I learned from the two renewal of vows I’ve handled is that no relationship is perfect. You will always have ups and downs, misunderstandings and frustrations. It all boils down to going back where you started and getting a deeper reason why it’s worth fighting for.

You are my rainbow.

As I listen to this famous South Border song, it made me realize how I badly need you to survive every obstacle life may throw me.

"This is such a wonderful place to be."

In every thing that I think of doing, I see you beside me. Imagining my life with you is one of the factors that make me appreciate what I have thus making Earth a wonderful place to live in.

"Even if there is pain now, everything will be alright."

As how this line goes, if I have your hand to hold, shoulder to lean on and arms wide open, I will be strong for us.

"There’s a rainbow always after the rain."

Our relationship is being strengthened by problems. I guess everyone does. But let me tell you how proud I am because we face each of it with open mind and heart. I may not directly imply what it means to me to talk things over but I’m really thankful for your efforts to listen.

You are my one of a kind rainbow that brightens my day. I would not regret loving and spending every day of my life with you because you make it meaningful. Thank you for being my reason of happiness. I love you, always and forever.

My pledge for Christmas

Really in the mood of blogging so let me share you a memorable experience today.

Just a quick background, I’m currently part of a committee that will organize this year’s CSR and Christmas Party for The Lighthouse Marina Resort. This is a yearly event where instead of exchanging gifts to co-employees, we will sponsor 1 or more indigent students and grant their wishes for Christmas. We will also do a feeding program for them. And as a committee, our job is to look for a school where we will conduct the said event.

Earlier today, we went to 2 different schools to assess their situation. My co-organizers did an ocular to 3 schools last week but due to the nature of my job, I wasn’t able to join them. Going back, the first one we visited was Sibul Elementary School located inside the SBMA area. According to my personal time calculation, it’s about 30-40 minutes drive from the business district. The location was at the top of the mountains and the road was too narrow that it can’t fit 2 cars at a time.

We were welcomed by their principal who happens to be the head of the other school we will visit as well. Upon arrival, I immediately saw this empty lot that’s prone to landslide. We asked if there are any plans to use it for additional rooms for students but she said it depends if there will be a sponsor. As of today, there are 4 classrooms that hold classes for Kinder to Grade 3 pupils only. The principal told us that the teachers are fresh graduates and still on training. I deem the size of the rooms still convenient given the number of 100+ students. We were also informed that the 2 classrooms were donated by the former senator Dick Gordon.

After taking pictures and checking the area, we were accompanied by the principal to our next destination, Amelia Heights Elementary School. Travelling there was rough since it’s outside the Olongapo City proper and roads are not fully developed yet. Good thing she was there to give directions to our driver. While on the road, we got the chance to interview her since we have questions we were dying to ask.

For a summary of the short interview, she goes there every MWF to check on the students and teachers. They have a transportation provided by the barangay however, once the service is not available, they need to walk an hour just to get there. Imagine the heat, sweat and how tiring that can be. It must be her passion and love for teaching that she can endure that kind of situation.

When we arrived at the school, my heart was torn apart seeing how students can fit into their small classrooms. The building was too damaged and doesn’t have a good ceiling. I felt the heat circulating in that area. My heart was in awe because the students greeted us with all smiles despite the situation of their school. It’s suppose to be conducive to learning, not making you want to go home. We checked the area and saw this classroom still in cement and hollow blocks and occupied by Grade 3 or 4 students. They’re enduring a few fluorescent lighting and 1 electric fan. Again, that broke my heart. I also noticed that the people who work on improving the school’s facilities are also the teachers there. I really salute them for not giving up on their jobs even if there are other opportunities that await them.

We got the chance to also talk more with the principal regarding the school. All I did was to listen on her experiences and huge plans for the kids. At that moment, I knew I wanted to help. We bid our goodbyes and went back to the hotel with clear photos of their situation.

We have 1 more school to visit before we make our decision. I was informed by our head that we need to walk for an hour because the road is still not passable there. I was advised to wear shorts and slippers because we’ll walk on areas with waters.

So basically, that’s the summary of my memorable experience and I’m glad to be a part of this CSR.

Artsy Fartsy Side

I have been really inspired lately to show off my creativity side. I have been doing a lot of doodling (thanks to the Doodly app) and some photography alongside with editing for the past few days. It’s very rare I get the time to do this because of my stressful work and time consuming lifestyle. It’s really relieving letting your feelings out by a form of art. 

I remembered a friend who told me that the colors you use can define what you really feel inside. Based on my observation, the colors I’m fond of right now are pastels so it goes to show I’m happy (Just to justify that I really am. Haha!). He also told me that every curve or line tells a thousand words. It’s really a wonder how a masterpiece can be a reflection of your story.
