Lurking in the dusk
A maiden weeps
Emotion and reason
Toiling in her depth
Another incredulous soul
Yearning for solace
An utter passion?
Only time could reveal
I was browsing my albums when I saw these not-so-old photos of me and my gorgeous niece. We’re able to form a strong bond despite our 5-year-gap. She’s my shopping, barayle, movie, and lakwatsa buddy. She’s also my companion whenever I feel like pigging out and cam whore-ing. We absolutely get along because she’s the only person whom I can be with during a non-stop shopathon; besides, we both agree that shopping is really the best cardio. Hahaha! It’s just nice to have someone whom I can always count on, and I also like the fact that I can go crazy about life when we’re together. She just lets me be myself. I mean, she lets me decide on my own yet she never fails to give me some words of wisdom. I do love her more than Lee Min Ho, Harry Potter, Candace Bushnell, baked macaroni, pizza, books, shoes, UST, etc. Hahaha! But seriously, I love her so much. We may not see each other often but deep in my heart I know that the friendship we’ve built will never, ever fade.
P.S. Good luck on your LET! Bring it on, alam kong kaya mo yan :) Dapat pumasa ka ha para naman mailibre mo na ako sa isang posh Makati club and hindi na tayo sa plaza magtiyatiyaga na maki-bayle every fiesta! LOL
‘’A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor.’’
This old adage only proves how significant failures are to one’s journey. Many are afraid to commit mistakes but one can never deny that it is unavoidable. Victory cannot be easily achieved without failing. Some of the common failures that teenagers encounter are the failure to make their parents proud, failure to excel in their chosen college programme, failure to do their best academically, and the failure to make their lives memorable and worth living. Failure pertains to the lack of success, and the inability to perform an expected action but it extends to that because it can improve one’s self to be a much better, stronger, and wiser person.
Failure might be really hard to handle for those who are competitive since defeat is unusual for them. They always want to be on top. They might also be depressed and even consider themselves unlucky and unworthy because they failed. However, failure is also a way to be a better person in a sense that one will learn the value of acceptance and contentment. It is important to know that one cannot get all of her heart’s desire maybe because God has other plans for her. Moreover, failure is also a way to be a stronger person in a sense that one will be brave enough to admit her weakness and not be easily discouraged when things doesn’t seem to fall into place. Lastly, failure is also a way to be a wiser person in a sense that one will be more cautious and vigilant in every move that she does to make sure that she’ll definitely achieve her goals.
People often ask, ‘’How can one have the courage to face life’s trials?’’ Well, faith in God is what matters most. Always bear in mind that God never gave problems that one cannot surpass. Giving up and running away from hindrances will never be the solution. One must learn to believe in her own strengths and abilities. The courage to withstand life’s adversities is also important.
As I’ve said earlier, failure is inevitable, but over-thinking ruins happiness and peace of mind, so it’s much better to accept things as they are, learn from the mistakes that have been committed, and strive to be the best that you can be.
I was surfing the internet when my nephew suddenly entered the room and hugged me. I thought he was simply being nice and sweet until he started yelling “ahhhhh germs!!! you are now infected kasi hindi pa ako naliligo at grabe ang pawis ko kanina” OMG this kid makes me crazy
I only have one week left :( I’ll surely miss my nephews even though they annoy the shit out of me. I’ll surely miss my loving cousins who fed me, took care of me, and adopted me for a couple of days. I just want to cry right now. I don’t want this summer vacation to end yet.
ALL I NEED IS AN ESCAPE FROM MY PETTY PROBLEMS
