The king in every Archer

The Sports Panel

With the success La Salle is having lately, I keep on hearing people asking: who is the new King Archer? A king is someone who is skilled, powerful and wise; someone who is capable of commanding a situation into his liking.

Such title, if I must say, is a huge praise for one player to be acknowledged with. The King Archer title isn’t necessarily required to be tagged on a single player alone. As a matter of fact, every Archer on the team is a king of their own.

Basketball is a game won with different players of different capabilities; no team is an exception to this. Every Green Archer plays a game that deserves recognition then and now, but relying solely on that great player, that so called “King Archer” won’t deliver you the W.

The point I’m trying to get at is this: a player joining the UAAP…

Not to save face but to save my heart.

Not to save face but to save my heart.

Haven’t been posting for a while now…it’s because a lot of things happened these past few days. In one day. I decided to leave everything behind, something comfortable and just there. It was a risk. I went home to my Mom, and this was the condition. I’d gladly accept it.

I decided to shift courses.

Emotions and Conscience

Honestly, I felt very sad at first. Actually, many feelings came to me.
1. Anger
2. Sadness
3. Resentment
4. Bitterness
5. Longing

And the list goes on. Yesterday, I attended The Feast at PICC. It was not new to me but yesterday’s session was just really, I don’t know, life-changing. I remember what the preacher said, that emotions are different from your conscience. He said that emotions are real, these are things that you feel. Conscience is doing what is right, what you know is good for you. So it comes down to what is real (emotions) and what is right (conscience).

For now, I am trusting the Lord with all my heart that this is the path He has planned for me. Of course I will feel a lot of things, that’s normal, I am only human. But I know that this is the right thing to do. For my Dad. For my family…and especially. This is the right thing for me.

Officialy a member!

This day was just a good day for me. Thank you God for all of the blessings I am receiving! 

 

Gotta love lab! 🙂

I really enjoyed my two lab classes (electrical and organic chemistry) today. I’m happy that I squeezed it all on a Friday, ’twas a good choice.Now let me talk about my Organic Chemistry lab. I really love my groupmates! ❤ We really worked hand-in-hand to finish the experiment correctly. We finished second so we got a +3! Yay! :)) #nerd hahaha.

On the other hand, I’m still getting used to my Swiss cheese schedule and so far I’m liking it. At least I can do school stuff during long breaks. :)) Really really hyped on doing good this term, I really want to learn this stuff. ❤

We made it from the bottom now we’re up.

Moving on, this day is very special for me because this is the day I became a legit member of the official  University paper (Ang Pahayagang Plaridel). Before I was only a correspondent, but now I am a fully-pledged member! So proud of myself. :> Another blessing indeed!

 

Realizations: When I think that things are not going the way I planned, or whenever I feel insecure, I just talk to God and that always makes me feel better. That’s the reason for the smile on my face. 🙂 I still have a lot to be grateful for.

 

 

“The most beaut…

“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.”
— Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

A close friend of mine named Janne commented this on my Facebook page and said that I’m the first person she thought about when she read this quote. I am deeply moved by this…truly. ❤

Thank you God for this wonderful feeling.

 

“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths.”

I totally agree with this. Coming from a broken family, I guess I have a lot to say about suffering, struggle, and loss. But given this tragic past, I don’t want to continue living in it. I still cry about it at night though… 🙂 But whatever. I realized that if those things did not happen to me, I would not have been the same person I am today. I’ve grown closer to God. I’ve got this deep and personal relationship with Him, a very priceless thing. I have found my way out of the depths. ❤

 

“These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern.”

Which makes me the emotional optimist that I am. I’m very hard to understand (malabo talaga ako hehe), but once you’ve taken the chance to get to know me..please. I am fabulous! Hahaha, joke. I just really like talking to people, about anything! Problems, advice, or if you need someone to talk to, feel free to contact me. 🙂

 

 

Beautiful people do not just happen. 😉

 

 

10 Everyday Things That Can Save A Relationship

Thought Catalog

1. Don’t listen to what they say any less than you did your college lectures. Pay attention to what they tell you, no matter how insignificant or mundane. Don’t turn the conversation back around at yourself by using an example from your own life to compare to theirs. Stop comparing all together. Don’t just talk to them, have an actual conversation– an art that is waning. Don’t pepper your responses with mindless head nods and a high pitched “yeah” or “nice.” Engage.

2. Withhold the blame-placing, even if you know you’re right. There is an incredible emotional buffer in starting sentences with “I believe” rather than the accusatory you-are-wrong-and-I-am-right. Nobody deserves to feel like they’re the lesser in a relationship, especially not for something they think or believe.

3. Be selfless. Not just by monetary means or anything like that, but in the way you remain faithful if you say you…

There’s something about the cold weather.

Is it just me or do weird things happen in the cold weather. Wait, let me rephrase that. Not really weird, but surprising things do happen when it’s raining. Now don’t get me wrong, I didn’t say that because I think it’s #MOMOL weather. Ugh, I don’t even like that.

Anywaaaaay. There’s just something about the cold weather that I really like. To the person who brought me home today, thank you so much! Nabasa ka tuloy dahil sakin 🙂 A newly found friendship yay! 😀

“Buti hinatid mo ko, kundi mararape ako. Ang dilim kaya dito samin.”

“Ha? Sino naman mag-rarape sayo? Asa ka naman.”

“Tumahimik ka dyan, kundi ako ang unang mag-rarape sayo.”

HAHAHAHA okay, why so witty Mons? Oh this day. ❤ I am very thankful for this day.
