My Secret Dream

During my first year in law school, I casually told my classmate, Ma'am Geraldine, one of the reasons why I want to be a lawyer....

She smiled at me when I told her, "When I will be a lawyer, I wanted to be a guest speaker in a graduation exercises of my alma mater"... She could have thought it a joke, because that dream was so simple and not one that would spark an interest. Yah, I thought too, that what I dreamt of doing is insignificant....

Years passed by but my mind was still bugged by my somewhat silly statement. Yet, I realized that when I uttered those words, it meant a lot to me. I wanted to talk before the graduates and inspire them with my life's experiences and struggles.

My secret dream became a reality yesterday. I did deliver my Commencement Speech in the graduation exercises of my alma mater. I felt so happy! I hope that I was able to touch young hearts towards the right track and make them dream big and pursue their dreams no matter what....

My lucky number: 837

I have mixed feelings upon hearing the most-awaited news in my life... My friends already cried with happiness, but I have not cried a tear when they called me up of the results of the Bar Exam.

PASSING THE 2011 BAR EXAM IS NOT A JOKE. It means a new life for me. I felt in my heart excitement, happiness and uneasiness! I have to be sure that I really made it and see for myself that it is really happening. That I am now a Lawyer for real!...

When I finally saw with my own two eyes the result, I was listed in number 837, I was truly overjoyed!!!! Thank You so much my Lord, my Creator for giving me this wonderful gift.

Yes!!!! I won the battle!

Learning American Accent

Learning English is so fascinating. It is like playing with words, grouping it together to become sentences then sentences are grouped to become paragraphs and so on..... Writing words has an art. However, literally voicing those words has a different form too!

In one training I attended, we were taught the American Accent training, and there was Paul Gruber's workshops. I feel like I was a kid, learning how to pronounce words the American way. I super love it when I hear his voice saying, "Very Good"... Ajah! I feel like I am more confident now to talk with Americans. I hope that I will be able to get an A+ grade from them! :)

One Fine Day

Experience the white sand beach in Isla Del Mar Beach Resort? Wow, I could not believe real relaxation at its best. The water was super nice, I did play with the waves....
I personally do not like sunbathing but I was under the sun all day! Imagine me getting sun burnt? I would probably be super toasted. Hahahaha! But this day was an exemption. I could not resist the seawater, the white sand and sheer pleasure.

Love this day so much!!!!

I was like a kid! Hmmmmm..... 

I hope to explore nature again next time! See yah!

A Little Act of Goodness

December 29, 2011. Home for the Aged.

My niece, Cry2 tagged along with me when I joined my batchmates in high school for an Outreach Program. VISITING THE HOME FOR THE AGED . We conducted this instead of the usual high school reunions, for a change.

I felt a fierce pain in my heart when an old man, a resident of that institution came near me and Cry2. He hugged Cry2 to the latter's surprise. My little companion was sure taken aback but I explained to her that the "Lolo" missed his "Apo" who did not pay him a visit for years now.  

The old man cried. But I knew he was happy. This is just a little act of goodness before the year ends. More for 2012!!! :)

The Lolo approached Cry2

Then he dedicated a song to his "Apo" (grandchild)...

Our visit made his day.

Hopes for Year 2012

The new year is too near! Gosh, I really have a lot of plans and hopes. But foremost is my passing and hopefully, topping the bar ~... Quite a big dream but makes my heart happy.

I pray for God's wisdom and guidance. Nobody can do anything perfectly without His permission. Life is filled with puzzles, and I intend to place the pieces correctly and promptly.

I pray for good health. Health is very important. For how can I enjoy everything if I am weak and plagued with disease.

I pray for happiness. It is the air that breathes life to my being. I hope to live harmoniously and blissfully with my love-ones and new found friends each day.

I pray for peace of mind. It will bring tranquility amidst a world that has a lot of trials, so that I may sleep comfortably, not disturbed by nightmares.

I pray for God's blessings. Each day and forever, so that I may be able to live my life nicely and share it with others.

I have a lot of prayers. There are a lot more. Better kept inside than said.

THESE ARE MY HOPES for the coming years of my life...
