Falling in love

Standard

Teenagers these days seem to succumb into hormones and emotions faster and harder compared to their parent’s generation.

Almost all of them are in a relationship and the remaining singles are busy with studies, waiting for the “right guy” or plain engrossed in something else. Rules and reprimands seem to serve no purpose anymore as the saying “rules are meant to be broken” became famous. Nobody obeys them anymore.  But as age comes into the picture, the question remains unanswered, “Are we ready for a relationship?”

Whether it is just peer pressure dictating we need a partner to belong with the crowd or hormones dictating love notes, nobody knows for sure. All we know is what we feel for that person and that is elation, joy and happiness. We go further into the relationship craving for the promise of love only to hit a hard wall as both parties fall out of love and realize the bitter end as a split is coming in.

A cries, screams and tantrums with a lot of thing-throwing follow. Tears , lots of them and ultimate pain  are always at the end of goodbye and its either you part as friends or you part as enemies, you’ll still conclude that you are not meant to be for each other.

You might move on and let go or else you’ll stay, mourn, be left behind and hang on to a hopeless case of reconciliation. Things become awkward with you and your exes and you’ll always miss the feeling of having someone behind your back, of somebody comforting you.

Frankly, I don’t think twelve to sixteen years of experience is enough to say you are in love and if there is an instance that they have found the right one, well, pray, it isn’t the right time to work on loving them, and this institution is the least romantic getaway for any couple.

And frankly, who am I to dictate your hearts with your loving? But as life goes on  and my feelings and emotions roll in turmoil, with my pulse racing, my heart beating and my face flushing, God help me, I fervently hope I am not falling helplessly in love.

Defining P-Noy

Standard

                    “P-noy is just       misunderstood,” is what I can say of him.

Forced into the limelight by his parents’ popularity and democratic roles in the society, he is pushed and pressured to follow in his parents’ footsteps and lead the nation up the ladder of success.

He is an individual with a bland personality and down-to-earth strata as seen on national television and heard on his press conferences, known as one who never cracks under hard work and smiles with wrong timing. Oftentimes, his speeches are never breathtaking in form but contain so much in promise and hope for a better future.

His presidential term has not even reached its peak yet the people he led are expecting him to have done much more and will do more in so little time. But I can say that government projects are currently much more active now compared to the last few years of my existence. Besides, there is a limit to how much one can do in six years.The mistakes of the past cannot be altered entirely in one seating.

P-noy’s trust rating are climbing up after the low downfall of last recordings of SWS and individuals are now appreciating his decisions and the changes he made in their lives, yet, they are still not satisfied and want more from P-noy each day.

A humble man, he chose to serve his country before his own happiness. Criticism has no effect on his demeanor and he behaves as if hearing them is a good thing. His weird quirks are hard to understand and I never got the hang of his facial expressions and his ultra simple but long and promising speeches but I trust him. I trust him enough to put our country’s welfare into his hands. I trust him, because I believe that with his leadership, our country might get the chance for a shot for prosperity.

My teachers, My Heroes

Standard

Teacher are really difficult people to understand. You can’t grip their perception on things and their reactions are far from their expectations.. And the most difficult thing is that when you think you know them, a different side of them appears, making you a lot more puzzled than before.

But I think their trait is a factor that binds me closer to them.  To most teachers, I may just be an average student who comes and goes after  four years, never to be seen again.

To a simple student, teachers are individuals to be endured for ten months every year for fifteen years or so.  To them, every Monday is dreaded and Friday is celebrated.

Well, to me, teacher are specks of gold, meant to be treasured for they are rare to find and valuable to man.  It takes luck to be able to find one in this world.

They bring happiness to be found and collected in my quest to my ultimate goal. A simple word from their lips sends hundred of tremors through my brain which branches out to ” Huh?” and “Ahh.”

They give off light and leave trails that enables me to follow a path towards a better future and the hints and pieces of puzzles they give to me are then pieced together to finish the puzzle of education and growing up.

Hundred of items and skills were passed down to me from different teachers and information and wisdom from them prove to be priceless in the world of moral etiquette.

The list for the things they’ve done to me, for me and for others is endless and this blog post is hardly the beginning. Saying thank you to them is not enough to compensate the pain, suffering and enduring they have to keep up with during the process of molding me into a better citizen, student and person.

I truly find it difficult to express gratitude in person but through my writings and ideas, I wish to let you understand that My Teachers are My Heroes!

Functionality VS. Style

Standard

In the midst of our technology-infected world, beauty and fashion is still a big factor in terms of choosing gadgets.

Cool-looking devices are more often than not bought by individuals because of their outer appearance. In fact, most people look for an objects appearance before looking into their function.

But is it really worth it it, buying a device just for show? Nuh-uh-uh! It just  doesn’t work that way. Function plays a deeper role in devices compared to beauty.

Buying second-rate devices are just plain DUH just because of their cool exterior.  It is much recommended  to invest in a  device for its functionality.

Anyway, who would want to buy  a stylish device only to have it break down the next day. So better weighyour options and factors closely and choose a device that not too shabby on the outside but worth the money for its functionality.

Hanging On or Letting Go

Standard

There are only two choices in life–to let go or to hold on. Both pose different endings and different consequences.

As the most difficult choices, one can only fathom the twists and turns of events that follow the big decisions. Consequences vary from funny to insulting. Imagination is not enough to see the what ifs and what-could-bes of each side.

Life is screwed and nothing is much harder than choosing between forked roads or in this case, branching decisions. Courage is needed to make the decision and the risks or high for either part of the group.

Choosing to let go is painful but offers relief at the same time. It takes a lot of courage to even admit that one thing is not yours, never was yours and will never be yours.

Hanging on take a different kind of bravery for the one who decided to hang on is pelted by insults, unasked advice and unwanted suggestions. One can only imagine the suffering endured by those who chose to hang on.

One could never see the two sides of the coin at the same time and there is no middle path to trek on to safety. Regrets comes last and whatever path we choose, consequences follow.

Choose carefully and weigh your stakes and risks. But more importantly, trust your instinct, follow your heart and live life to the fullest. Because now is the time to decide whether to let go or to hold on.

Taken for granted

Standard

Here’s a list of things I took for granted and realized were essential in my life. Thumbs up to those who gave some to me and to those gave all to me. Hope you realize how important they are to me.

* Random smile – ever got the feeling of freshness every time a complete       stranger smiles at you? I get that feeling sometimes, but whenever I do, an invisible force  makes my lips curl upwards into a smile. Such brief exchanges between two people is very rare that’s why I treasure it. I t also seems like a     good way to find new friends.

*Hurtful insults – most of them contain the blunt truth and have insights that you can use to your advantage. Look  behind the spiky words to see the truth and change for the better.

*Help from friends – I always fall but friends always help pull me up whether from a failing grade or a stupid project I don’t have an idea on. I’m sure this is self-explanatory for all readers.

* Problems – Learn to appreciate challenges, life would be boring without them.  Still they may bring me down, but it is just so that  I have to stand up and start all over again.

* Failures – Curse the! Curse all problems! But cursing them won’t make them disappear. I always try to remember all my failures ( which are not hard to do so, cause they are SO embarrassing that I couldn’t get them out of my mind much lees forget them)  and use them as reminders of what I shouldn’t do.

* Other people’s mistakes – I don’t always have to make a wrong move to learn the lesson, right? I also keep track of other’s failures, just so I can avoid the same consequences. Saves me a lot of time than experiencing it first-hand.

*Small successes – -the small things I achieved, all are tiny steps towards my primary  and final goal. This statement is more than enough explanation.

It is the small things that matter the mos, the tiniest details and the minuscule perfections that make life a whole lot more beautiful. It should not be taken for granted but should be cherished and treasured, taken as a challenge, a form of motivation or as an inspiration to be used to propel us towards the winning goal in our life.
