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.

The Beach

This post makes it look like I have lots of time to splash in the waves of the beaches in our country, but the truth is, I still have classes until May (and I do not have the money, okkk). So I grabbed the opportunity to embrace the time that I had in the beach when I went to one of my best friend’s debut.

In this photo, I like how the tiny boat is facing towards us + the lights trying to escape from the tiny gaps between the clouds.

It was surprising to know that this floating rest house can move because I thought it was static.

A candid scene in a beautiful place is a beautiful view to photograph. It gives story to a blank picture.

Indeed, going to the beach with the right people was a fun experience and we’re aiming to do this again someday. However, reality is crawling on my doorway. I still have to finish few requirements to ace this semester!

When He was Afraid to Talk

Whenever I socialize with my lovely friends, I always make a small space for laughter. Talks are frightening for me. I never wanted people to get bored when they talk to me, so I always make simple jokes for few giggles. Most of them would appreciate my jokes especially when it is relatable.

After deeply musing on a sunny day, I immediately begin to wonder why talks feel like a never-ending roller coaster. Engaging in a small conversation will lead me to a ride of anxious monstrosities, leaving the fact that I am just talking to a person, not a god or a goddess. My veins begin to internalize the feeling that I am a non-worthwhile company. But when does it stop? Why does it scare me? Why do issues face me whenever anxiety attacks me?

Dear Friend #4

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.

The Infraction and The Complaint (Part 2)

Now let me ask you

complain

When was the last time you read the rules and regulation on the syllabus? So you can stop complaining why the prof is strict.

When was the last time you cared to move your book and written notes? So you can stop complaining why he isn’t worthy. He gave you notes, do your part, and come to realize your worth (long story short, your worth is to study in his class, are you studying?).

When was the last time you’ve punctually done your homework and dumped activities? So you can stop complaining why (more…)
