Serendipity

Another mark off the list
I'm really glad you got me into this
We burst into a cocktail full of emotions.
then paused and contemplated for awhile
now strike a pose
let's be merry,cheers!
we made it!at long last!

The world seems different
especially from up here
speck of human dots
walking across the street like ants
tiny box houses and skyscrapers like matchsticks
faint blinking lights from the  towers antenna

the view's amazing! worth the hike
birds fluttering and chirping around
the sky full of clouds
the sun glimpse
as if saying hello
it's like another world up here
that I don't want to let go.




(Draft: Wednesday, October 16, 2013 quite like the unexpected post but with the heart not leading to infarction then decisions,meant to be,eloping then I later on edited it on March 1,2015 now it's all about adventures,bucketlist,exploration and stuff)

Beauty Within

This is an essay I wrote 8 years ago (english class) my professor asked us to write any topic we like that time I'm not really sure what or where to begin all I could remember was jotting a couple of ideas on a piece of paper and propose some ideas to her some are approved but most of them are rejected and this was the subject I stick to and talked about the following week in a very limited amount of time.I'm glad I found it and would like to share it to you.I'd also like to thank Lady_Kree and everyone for their love and support.Ok here goes:



How do you know you are in the presence of beauty? Is it something you see? Is it something you hear? Is it something you feel? Is it something you feel within yourself when you experience it? Is it something within you that you choose to become aware of only in specific circumstances?

Everyone possesses inner beauty. What is not on the outside is always on the inside. Our bodies and minds are magical creation. By knowing ourselves our inner beauty can grow and flourish. If everyone would just look for a person's inner beauty there would be so much love and peace in the world.

Take a look around you and see what you are missing. Our lives, no matter how short on this earth deserves to be shared in the beauty around us.

“I am what I am…”

There is an inner beauty…an inner light that God put within each and every one of us. We just need to find it once again. If we don’t find that little piece of God’s inner light, we will only be disappointed in life.

Tips for True Beauty (developing inner beauty): 1.For attractive lips, speak words of kindness. 2. For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people. 3. For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry. 4. For beautiful hair, let a child run his or her fingers through it once a day. 5. For poise, walk with knowledge and you’ll never walk alone. 6. be confident in everything that you so that when you face a certain situation that can either be intimidating or what, you can step up to the challenge. Reservoirs of self-doubt can be emptied and replaced with confidence and excitement. 7. Be positive 8. Always smile
9. Be young and energetic 10. Get satisfaction/ be satisfied in small petty things you do 11. Always feel you have done something worthwhile 12. Be happy and have fun.

Always keep in mind that people, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anybody. For nobody knows what the future holds. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, it is a gift from the Lord, it is skin deep and spirit deep, Eyes are indeed windows to the soul; Don't judge a book (or person) by its cover. Beauty is the radiance of truth; the fragrance of goodness and that Beauty without virtue is like a flower without scent.

Take time to notice those around you. Make a new friend...maybe even the one you're not attracted to at first. Is it possible that you could find an unexpected beauty hidden within that weird looking guy/girl sitting next to you?

If we don’t try to find our inner beauty when we are young, we might end up being old one day with no substance. The person who is always striking and beautiful is not always good, but that person who is good is always beautiful from within.

My first lucky clover:Plant Journey

A very late post!

I didn't know and now I realized I forgot to post this or maybe I did and this is just a draft copy of that but anyway yeah almost 2 years ago this thing happened...

June 25,2013
I went and hangout at Barnes & Nobles for awhile and scavenge my way thru the 50% off clearance bin full of random stuff and bought myself a Lucky Clover plant set in a box. ($5.95- 50%= 2.95+6%tax=$ 3.15)
Day 2:they're beginning to sprout
Day 3:more sprouts yey! ^_^
Day 4 they're growing nicely! I try to talk to them from now and then.
at the end of day 4 they grew a lot taller!
Day 5: they're growing up fast! I think I can spot a 4 leaf clover haha this is very exciting indeed!
Day 6: xD
Day 7
Day 8: swing to the right follow the light
Day 9-10: It's been raining these past couple of days.Not much sun that's why it started to wither mayhaps.
Day 12: most of them are dying so I changed their setting and place them at a windowsill with lots of sunlight hopefully that would do the trick I don't really know how long this plant will last it doesn't really say on the box the longer the better I guess...from day 13-18: it looks pretty much the same as 12 but they are withering slowly.
Day 19 (July 13):Last one standing I hope and pray it will become a 4 leaf clover coz it looks like it xD


[Notes from the future: As far as I could remember I think I saw a 4 leaf clover like the last one standing or maybe I'm on denial like maybe it's like 3 but the branches are a bit off so yeah 4 I decided meh maybe it's a 4 haha]

Daylight Savings: Spring forward!

I love it! well more on the time going back an hour part haha but today's March 8th so yup that time to spring it forward here in the USA.

In the Philippines there's no such thing as daylight savings due to its geographical location which I find rather sad when I learned that there is such time to save in other countries in those days when I was still a young student I really hope and pray there is such thing in my hometown that way I could sleep and do more when time falls back haha!

maybe that's why I appreciate it more this time going back and forth thing when my mom and I immigrated also not to complain about it since I don't have it in the first place and now that I do have a chance to do so it kinda feels so liberating in a way.

due to my curiosity I searched for the history of daylight savings around the interwebs and so happy on what I discovered (if the interwebs is to believe that is) here's the link to that. At first all I know was about Benjamin Franklin's essay (some parts of it at least) here's a quote from that linked article



Benjamin Franklin

American inventor and politician Benjamin Franklin wrote an essay called “An Economical Project for Diminishing the Cost of Light” to the editor of The Journal of Paris in 1784. In the essay, he suggested, although jokingly, that Parisians could economize candle usage by getting people out of bed earlier in the morning, making use of the natural morning light instead.

Before I haven't really seen what it's like in Paris or anywhere in europe besides photographs on books and sometimes in the interwebs but when a friend of mine shared on one of here social media sites what it's like at 9pm in Paris I was like whoa!so sunny and bright wth?! *mind blown*

so I further more think that Benjamin Franklin's essay made a lot more sense, genius,economical and awesome idea! Time's definitely a lot more weirder in other parts of the world or so also another supporting story was when my father told me in which for example in the Philippines when it's 5:30-7pm it's already/really dark and when he was in Vienna,9pm it's still so bright outside he remembered he needed to utilize the curtains in order to go to sleep.

anyway, cheers! to those who thought of daylight savings \_/ \_/ without you I wouldn't be able to enjoy this kind of thing.
