moments in our lives..

I was watching the tv show: One Tree Hill awhile ago. When Lucas' words at the end of the episode made me ponder on such moments in our lives - from the choices we make..being tested..

Life..trying to figure out what lies ahead beyond existence, but we never know what really does.

"There are moments in our lives when we find ourselves at a crossroads. Afraid. Confused. Without a road map. The choices we make in those moments can define the rest of our days.

Of course, when faced with the unknown, most of us would rather turn around and go back.

But once in awhile people push on to something better - something found just beyond the pain of going on it alone and just beyond the bravery and courage it takes to let someone in. Or to give someone a second chance.

Something beyond the quiet persistence of a dream.

Because it's only when you're tested that you discover who you truly are. And it's only when you're tested that you discover who you can be.

The person you want to be does exist, somewhere on the other side of hard work, faith and belief, and beyond heartache and fear of what lies ahead."


Everyday is a brand new day.

A new day of realization.

Realization of the day that one has made to.

Realization of more new problems to be solved.

Yet realizing more things to be happy with..

More goals and targets to work for..

And realizing many more things to thank God for.. :) Manila.

We didn't have any classes/duty today since PGMA was going to attend our school to commemorate the new president of our university. So our group in research spent the time researching in 4 colleges (UP, UST, CEU, SBC) at Manila..just for one day..actually..hours! Our group met up at 5:30-6am but unfortunately someone still came late (Filipino time huh lol)..anyways, we left by 6:30am and took the NLEX for easier and faster transport. From Pampanga to Manila it would usually take 3-4 hours including traffic. But using the NLEX, it only took us 1 and a half hour to reach Manila! What an improvement! We arrived at Manila by 8am and went straight to our first 2 destinations: UST & UP. Then by lunchtime, we went to to the last 2 schools left on our list: CEU & SBC. All we did was research for more sources for our thesis. One thing that also made me happy today - I saw 2 of my H.S.Classmates, Rami & Tin, a while ago, they made time for at least a few minutes since I haven't seen them for like 2 years now. I missed them so much! I can't believe I missed them..and the others! We were talking like back in the days when we were back in AUH! So anyways, they promised me a tour next time I visit Manila cuz I had to go back to Pamp.,and I have people with me..a dozen lol! Sad to say I didn't take a pic of us. Back to researching, we finished by 4:30pm. Since we had school the next day, we didn't have to chance to roam around at least..we went straight back to Pampanga after finishing our task for the day. We arrived here in Pampanga by 6pm..from there, everyone parted ways and went home. Tiring but somewhat fun hehe

This is just in my POV: I would say I never liked to live there in Manila even if the colleges are all high standard. If only THEY can do something to make our country better! THEY keep on repeating the same goal every year..geez! Anyways, my parents were's not a good environment for me and my siblings to be in since we were born and raised in a very well environment. Or maybe it just depends..But this is the way I see it!

Even if majority of my friends are far from me..I know that we'll be seeing each other even if it takes a long time..time will come!

To Rami & Tin: Next time I go to Manila, I'll expect the tour you guys promised! :') miss u guys so much!

Sorry for the wrong grammar! I just wanted to post about this fun & unforgettable experience (I didn't mention all..don't have to) that I had today. I'm sleepy and tired right now from the adventure today haha..*yawns* I'm off to bed! Ciao!
