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.

Luwalhati 2016

Last week, I visited Luwalhati, a photo exhibit held at Ginhawa Art Cafe in UPLB. It was a joy in the heart to witness an exhibit like this because I am a fan of artworks in any form. The idea of looking at masterpieces displayed on a plain surface makes me happy and contented. Indeed, Luwalhati 2016 made me feel like an excited art student again.

The photos in the pictures were not the only displayed photos in the exhibit. In my trip, I discovered that there were more photos behind the panel boards and they were also beautiful and aesthetically meaningful! Hopefully, more exhibits like this will be held in the campus and I will visit them all alone!

Yes, I prefer visiting art exhibits alone because it gives me a glorious moment to reflect on and appreciate the displayed artworks. Sheer solitude will always have a place in my heart.

PS: Sorry for having low-quality photos.

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!
