There are days when I get frustrated about my age, turning a year older is fretful. But today, I’m just going to accept the fact that I am a year older and that I am twenty-one. Well, I can’t do anything about it but be thankful enough that I’ve reached a point in my life where it’s no longer necessary to have ton of friends and no longer necessary to be impressive. Two nights before my birthday, I was too bothered by the fact that I cannot put up all my words in one document. Maybe because sadness becomes a necessity for me to be able to write something logical, or maybe because I am just too happy that writing down my thoughts would become exaggerated when transformed into words. Thank you Lord, I am twenty-one.
Hello friends! Yes, I am still alive. Ahh, it feels so good to be back. It has been solely a month since the last time I posted something here, and now it feels like I do not know how to blog anymore, lol. But really though, missed you all. I seriously have so much to talk about although my life’s been no fun but school. Never even expected that I’d be on hiatus for a month, more like I didn’t imagine myself being hooked up with school and stress. So many things happened for the past weeks and I am thankful enough that midterms week is over-ish now which means I can finally satisfy an 8hr-sleep. Hehe for now, let’s forget about my last submission for the first term, a full-length treatment for my screenwriting class. So here’s to a life lately:
One spontaneous and very much impulsive act but actually resulted to a very productive day. A friend invited me to this small gathering together with The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf and Suw(h)at for a worthwhile notebook making for the children. To be honest, I didn’t expect things to be as exciting as it is. I was bored, a friend invited me so why not give it a try? Right. We volunteered to be part of this little but gratifying activity to help the kids and motivate them as well. As much as possible, I always try to be part of some sort of things like this. It’s really fulfilling to help. So good to finally learn a little about the craft.
I almost forgot I still have pending post about my summer, and I’m trying to remember when was this, lol. Well, summer went off so fast that I am so bothered being not ready for school. I’ve been posting a lot about our summer trips to Southern Leyte on my Instagram, and Tangkaan was one of the places we’ve visited again. Tangkaan Beach Resort is located at the Southern tip of Maasin City, in Padre Burgos. Tangkaan beach consists of beautiful rock formations and proves to be different from the many since it is a white sand beach, thus making the water so clear, while the rest of Leyte’s beaches is made of black sand.
Oh, I’ve been tolerating laziness for a couple of weeks now that I’ve already been missing a lot of blog updates, well I guess for some reasons it was a great idea. So much had happened already, the previous month was totally fulfilling. I have so much to talk about how I have been dealing with my personal life on a summer break in the province. I don’t even know where to start, and all I want to do is talk about everything in detail. I hope you guys will enjoy reading personal stuff about me as much as I enjoy writing them.
This summer, perhaps, one of the best gifts I could spoil myself is to go to places I’ve been to before. Being a “probinsyana” (countrywoman) residing in Leyte, of course, has a lot of perks. Not only that I get to eat a lot because it’s summer break and I’m home, but also because Leyte as a whole has a lot of hidden paradise to bargain. One of which is one of Southern Leyte’s Holy places, Monte Cueva. This uphill shrine’s been existing for a very long time now, however there are still a lot of workings to be made.
