Spon·ta·ne·i·ty

April 23, 2015: It was almost 11 o’clock pm when I received a message regarding a one-day trip with my best frands. I expected that we’re going to have our own summer vacation trip but I did not anticipated it to be this early. Apparently, they are planning on going to Fontana Waterpark on April 24, which means at that time it is “tomorrow”. And we haven’t even planned properly yet. Besides, I am not sure if I’ll be able to come since I have a kind of parent who needs to be informed a week before the trip. Hahaha. But I guess that night was different. Yes! 

Finally, we’re able to spontaneously plan our long delayed getaway!

I want fresh flowers, a hand to hold, camping with friends, books I can’t stop reading, compliments that don’t call me beautiful, traveling to new and faraway places, big warm hugs, smiles from strangers, coffee, long walks, talks about nothing at all, tears of happiness, to go someplace where no one knows my name, to serve others, learn a new language, to take days off to do nothing, sleep in, dream while I walk.

I want to feel stronger, to forgive and forget, to love and be loved. I want to make people feel loved, to believe in themselves. I want to be grateful for the pain and for the growth that came behind it. I want to improve myself, grow, and learn and teach something to someone as well. I want to be there and I want to be here. I want to live full and happy and well.

katherinehenson The Manifesto of Me (currently unfinished)

Cliche but, I can’t imagine my life without God. Ikaw ba? Ako kase, I always need someone else for support or help. Gusto ko laging may assurance. Gusto ko laging may nakaantabay in case na mahulog ako sa mga life decisions ko. I’m scared to fail but I’m even more scared if I don’t have anyone to lean on in times of my failure. I’m afraid that I might break down kung walang nag-aassure saken. Kaya nga lagi akong nagcconsult sa mga friends ko regarding my decisions pati na din sa parents ko. And it’s such a great feeling to have them and most especially si God. I have His words. His words that lasts forever. Words na alam kong hindi magbabago. Promises na alam kong hindi mabbreak. Assurance na alam kong hindi mawawala. Everytime that I read the bible, laging may promises and assurance that He will never leave me. He was faithful and is still faithful to me, to us. Ang sarap sa feeling. Medyo exaggerated ba? Hinde, talagang ganyan kapag naffeel mo love ni God. Yung no worries ka. Yung bang andami mo ng problems pero yung attitude mo grateful padin. That feeling is so priceless and you can’t compare it with anything in this world.

Right now, I am trying develop that attitude. Being an anyway-praiser, having a grateful heart, and a beautiful, beautiful soul.💖

CHANGING FOR THE BETTER

I can’t believe I almost forgot that I have a blog. Is that even possible? (No? Okay. Sorry, I was joking.)

I have so much to write on this particular blog post but due to lack of time and motivation, I will just make a summary of what has been happening to my life lately. Or not.

So, for the supposed to be year-ender post. This year gave me so many reasons to be grateful for. Obviously, there were some downs but there were always some ups. There are moments that I definitely want to remember for the rest of my life but there were some too that I wanted leave behind and just label them as my past. To be honest, I did not expect anything for the year 2014. I was too scared to expect that something good will happen, although I was hoping. But things worked the way God wanted them to be and for that I am grateful. I know that I am slowly going back on track. I learned a lot of lessons too, if I truly assess what kind of year is 2014, I can say that it’s full of learnings about myself and the people around me. I learned how to love myself more, to focus on permanent things, to know my priorities, to be independent and at the same time to depend on God more.

I also realized that I don’t have to be like someone else in order to be love or to be like by the people around me. As they always say, the opinion of others does not really matter. Also, in life, some things does not work in a way you wanted them to be, that you cannot just control everything. This year also made me more of a risk-taker. If there is one thing that I’ll never forget about managerial finance that is, the more risk you take, the greater return you get. It will always be worth it, I assure you. Lastly, every journey becomes ultimately fun if you share it with the One who loves you no matter what.

Now, I don’t want to spoil anything for myself so I won’t promise anything but I am already claiming it. Just like what I did last year. So this 2015, I am hoping for more answered prayers, life learnings, and happiest of everything!

FROM THE BOTTOM TO THE TOP

Let’s talk about how I spent my sembreak and the day after that, which is school. Haha!

All I can say is I got all the time I needed to rest, to sleep, to watch, to eat, to do everything that I want. In short, things which are not related to school. Instead of starting to review for our qualifying exam next year, I’ve decided to make this break as an opportunity to give myself a rest. I’m not gonna be productive if I’m going to review anyway. Besides, I’m not yet in the mood to do anything related to school. I had a really tough semester so.. I guess I deserve a little break.

I don’t know how I’m going to start this little recap regarding my bakasyo.. oo bitin! Okay, I cut my hair and yeah (I’m too shy to say it), had a time to watch tv series (I am in love with TWD and suits and the mentalist!!!!), fan girl-ed so much about one direction’s new music video, bought the shoes that I like (OMG!!!), of course Halloween (I don’t like it), spent time with my family and my pets, started my journal (I am excited), and realized that I need to go back on track, I am going to lose if I didn’t and it is not healthy for my life anymore. To sum it up, I had a fun, simple, and a “me&Him” time semestral break.

About school, Idk but I don’t feel anything about going back to school. I guess I am still hoping that they would miraculously extend the break for at least one more week because I’m still feeling weak. Joke. And now that it started, all I can say is sana bakasyon nalang ulit.

Good day!

I was a grade five elementary student (if I am not mistaken) when I first watched Naruto, and from then on I became a great fan of Anime. Naruto just ended last two days, again if I am not mistaken, and couldn’t believe that it really is over. It was my first favorite anime and it was the anime that got me into more animes and mangas. I am making this post because I felt the need to thank its mangaka and to everyone who became part of the amazing and epic story of Naruto. Thank you for making my childhood fun, Masashi Kishimoto! Thank you for 15 years of adventures with my ramen boy, for sharing your world with us, for letting me feel how to be a ninja every time I watch Naruto and for teaching me not to give up with my hopes and dreams. Thank you, Naruto. I will surely miss you. Thank you for the memories and great episodes!

PS: See you soon?
