They say, eighteen months is a short time to be away; They cry, they’ll miss me as next week I’ll be saying goodbye. I’ll be sad, remember to email me weekly when I’m away. I will be fine, I’ll go somewhere familiar called Butuan… I’ll … Continue reading I’ll Be Back
Out of the 421 missions all over the world, where could it be? Popular guesses are Visayas Missions and abroad! The wait is here!!!
Got new glasses today and I’m weirded out. 🤓
First impressions may last but far lasting are the lessons you’ve taught me and emotions you’ve made me feel. You were difficult, dilapidated and demanding. You made me walk so much on uncomfortable shoes and under the scorching heat of the sun. You made me … Continue reading The Last Five Years
Every single time I feel the heavy burden of the tasks I need to perform with the very little time to do them, I would somehow find the time to write an elaborate post on them on my current blog (as they were ever changing). … Continue reading Reflection Time Again
I have known you for more or less than a decade. You were not even among my closests, but as friends we have our own quips and inside jokes. And for me, that really counts you in as an important person in my life. The last time I talked to you properly was when you were about to sing this wonderful song. How apt that the song talks of the wonderful love of the Savior for all of us: a message that your family and loved ones would need at this point.
Your fun and loving nature appeals so much too me that you’re one of those that I found to be very easy to be friends with. You are such a wonderful and beautiful daughter of our Heavenly Father. I feel so much like an ate that you never had.
I hate myself for not engaging with you more than I did the last time we met and talk. And I even hate to use the past tense when talking about you. I feel sad that you will no longer joke about the predator with me or laugh about the things only the two of us understand.
I love you. You are always in my thoughts. Keep smiling. I know Heavenly Father is happy to have you back and we’ll all be here for your family. 🙂

There is your impending thesis, that incomplete grade from last semester, the bulletin board you promised to design, that laboratory exercise that is long overdue, the book you’ve been wanting to read, and the story that is waiting to be written.
And lastly, the blog… that has to be filled with posts. 😐
Saturday night, I found myself with my mom at the marketplace buying tons of vegetables. With vegetables being sold at a very low price, we can’t help buying that much. So, I prepared a salad so late at night to chill for this morning’s brunch. … Continue reading Sunday Brunch: Potato Salad
Strange how someone’s spirits can be lifted up by a few words from a friend. Doubts will nag you, fears will make you cower and problems will make you sad. However, friends are there to lift you. They assure you that you are important. That failures will not make them love you any less. They will share their fears which were surprisingly similar to yours. Soon you won’t feel alone and neglected with your burdens because they will take half the load and worry off your back.
It is what I was meant to make her feel when we started chatting, but it’s what I ended up feeling. If this isn’t friendship and magic, I don’t know what is. ❤
