Reminders

Recently, we have been organizing documents and house materials. I decided to organize the documents stored in the yellow box that is located at the corner of our kitchen. There were important papers and sentimental documents in the box, but there were few things that immediately caught my attention. I got the chance to see my past plates and artworks again.

Touching and examining each plate was like walking down the path where I started my adventures in college with innocence and diligence. Each plate has its own memory and it has a very powerful impact to me. One plate reminded me of the time when I rummaged through my classmate’s phone to find some faces of people for the facial emotion activity that we had in Body Parts Drawing. Another artwork reminded me of my ventures in joining the annual Petron Art Competition! It was a memory that I will always cherish for it taught me so many things such as hard work, perseverance, and wisdom. Another piece reminded me of the hype that I had towards drawing Disney characters! I actually Disney-fied some of my high school classmates, and I chuckled when I saw the drawing! Another piece reminded me of how I met my first college best friends and their essentiality in making FA a fun course! Also, some of the plates greatly reminded me of the helpful professors that I had in FA, and I will forever cherish their essentiality in making my talent grow in a challenging way. They showed me that learning can be a friendly process with the involvement of the teacher who shares lessons, and the student who works and makes heaps of plates and artworks! I was only asking for an improvement, but they have given me more than that in a very casual way. However, I will never forget the plates that reminded me of the deadlines that I had! Some of my plates were rushed, but as soon as I reached the campus with hours to spare, I added details to make an improvement.

Well, the set of artworks as a whole reminded me of my diligence and perseverance towards every task when I was an FA student in AUP; this reminder would be very helpful now that I am about to become a sophomore student in UP. It tells me that diligence and perseverance will always get me to where my goals are, even though college is a distinct series of drastic success and failure. Thankfully, this small task that I have accomplished earlier reminded me of my true purpose as a college student.

Orasa by THEA 107- H

Note: This is based on what I understood when I watched the play.

—–

Apparently, Orasa is an hourglass. An hourglass is shaped like a number eight and it is covered on both sides so the sand inside won’t spill. Its primary purpose is to tell time; not the exact time but the time that passed away. By turning an hourglass upside down, the sands will fall from the upper cylindrical space into the bottom part. Once the sands are gone from the upper part, it means that an hour passed since the time you turned it. By applying it, the two-part scenarios in the play represent the two-part spaces of an hourglass. Since time is passing in an hourglass, the two-part scenarios come from two different time frames which are from the past and in the present time. The application was wise and I am fully impressed. Although, it took time to make me realize that the play in a nut shell is an hourglass, literally. This creativity should be applauded and appreciated. But what do the two time frames represent? Simply, they represent how a person falls in love with a person.

In the first part of the play, their cultural and generational decency is a trademark of what happened in the past if a person falls in love with another one. It’s the typical boy-meets-girl scene, but he can’t confess his love for the girl because of sheer shyness, nervousness, and doubting. Fortunately, the boy confessed his love (more…)

‘Tis I, the one who made the boat scene

Voila! This is the boat scene that I made on GIMP for today’s lesson in IT. Obviously, I need to practice more! But hey, it’s always like this! You learn the basics, progress into it bit by bit, and you turn into a successful person like Bill Gates. Yes, that is what I learned today in IT and it is enlightening. Someday, I will paint the whole world by using GIMP and no one can stop me because I want to be a successful person like Bill Gates!

Okay, I just need sleep, but learning new things is just fun! Anyway, IT helped me in so many things; especially the things that I cannot understand in the world of computers. I know that I can apply the IT lessons in real life. I will always bring these lessons in life, and yes, just like a loyal boat carrying its cargo into the seas where the beautiful sunset resides.

The VILLS of Today

Vacancy

Transferring into a new school is exhilarating; a new environment is purely refreshing and meeting new people gives you a clear description of how diverse a school can be. Although, being occupied by these things made me wonder of how vacant my time can be. I just think that I have been so occupied by certain circumstances that I tend to forget my vacancy. Luckily, in the past few weeks, I balanced my priorities and whatnot with (more…)

Leaving Home

Heavily going back to my dorm, I sadly think about the faces I have left at the living room of my abode. These faces brought me to tears as I find a decent jeepney along the road behind SM Calamba. Stopping myself from crying strongly reminded me of the faces I have left. Leaving in a particular circumstance made it hard for me to find some place to cover the fluid gushing out of my eyes. I closed my eyes and wondered, when will this hurting stop? I know I cannot escape this feeling. It forces me to pity anyone who does not want to leave his/er comfort zone.

How Long

How long does it take for a flower to wilt?

It takes long… long that you begin to lose the patience that you have in the first place.

But

How long does it take to feel sad?

How long does it take to move on?

How long does it take to live again?

Nobody knows.

But once you’ve entered the turning point,

you won’t remember these questions

that made you lose your patience.

Hey there! Are you still afraid of threats like pointy objects being impaled at you for no reason at all? Of course you are. I miss you. I remember the last time when we had a formal talk; we were at a kubo near the canteen that sells scrumptious spaghetti. You seem worried about unsettled matters in your academic life. I calmly helped you with your activity. I told myself, I am going to miss this type of moment with a friend like you. You always ran to me with worried words. I am truthfully sorry if I shrugged some of your problems. I was always expecting you to arrange those unsettled matters, so I remained silent if I had to. You were one of my first buddies in the school, and I will always be thankful for it. When we were at the classroom, I feel like I have someone who reminds me of Santa Rosa, my home and your home. I also feel like you’re someone who I can relate to with personal matters. Thankfully, I was never wrong. We will not be seeing each other for a long time! But I hope we will still be there to reminisce the moments that we had with our bubbly friends in our course.

How are you? Are you still bored? It is unfair for you to not know that I have been annoyed at you. Is it because of how talkative you are? Is it because of how you think? Is it because of the way you express your thoughts? Is it because of how you undermine me with your beliefs? Is it because of the slight boastfulness that I sense whenever we meet? I want to tell you that I fully respect your existence because you have a right to live and because you have feelings too.

Oh friend, I feel guilty having the feeling of distancing myself from you. It was not a healthy way of thinking, but (more…)
