DramaQueen…

HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

Life itself is a gift…we just have to learn to live it, love it, and own it…no one can tell you what to do, you own yourself but part of that great power is the phrase saying that “you enjoy your life but give the best part of yourself to everything that you do…your soul, your heart and your everything…do more expect less, dream big, play once in a while but work a little harder…”

always and forever…

i dont know know how it all began, all i wanted was a companion but instead he gave a one heck of a mate…you are one of my favorite cup of sweet soda and thanks for always being there whenever i feel like sipping for more…you’re not just one of my confidante but you became my good conscience telling me that “yong!ok lang yan…ang puso mo na naman”…sweet chikaMATE and maybe my long lost soulMATE…haizzz aia basta keep in mind that BMD will always here for you…you may not see us but just knock! and we’ll let you in, ok!!

have a HAPPY SWEET BIRTHDAY DramaQueen!!!

marie digby: MISS INVISIBLE

waaahhhh!!! now i am a SELF CONFESS marie digby fan…she is a GENIUS!!! i love her… her song MISS INVISIBLE again brought me in tears…haiizzz!!! i could imagine myself way way back when i was still that lil kiddo trying to loosen up a bit…i dont know if would feel sorry for myself or what…but well maybe we all have experienced that being alone not knowing what lies ahead…we all feel scared and left out…stumbling, wondering and trying to ask ourselves “WHAT WAS I THINKING?!”…

hope you’ll enjoy as much as i did…and for the second time i was like “MY SONG AGAIN!!”

MISS INVISIBLE by MARIE DIGBY

Theres a girl
Who sits under the bleachers
Just another day eating alone
And though she smiles
There is something she’s hiding
And she cant find a way to relate
She just goes unnoticed
As the crowd passes by
And she’ll pretend to be busy
When inside she just wants to cry
She’ll say…

 Chorus

Take a little look at the life of Miss Always Invisible
Look a little closer, I really really want you to put yourself in her shoes
Take another look at the face of Miss Always Invisible
Look a little harder and maybe then you will see why she waits for the day
When you’ll ask her her name
 
In the beginning, in the first weeks of class
She did everything to try and fit in
But the others they couldnt seem to get past all the things that mismatched on the surface
And she would close her eyes when they laughed and she fell down the stairs
And the more that they joked
And the more that they screamed
She retreated to where she is now
And she’ll sing…

 Chorus

Take a little look at the life of Miss Always Invisible
Look a little harder I really really want you to put yourself in her shoes
Take a little look at the face of Miss Always Invisible
Look a little closer and maybe then you will see why she waits for the day that you will ask her…her name

 And one day just the same as the last
Just the days spent in counting the time
Came a boy who sat under the bleachers just a little bit further behind…

marie digby: UNFOLD

it had been really quite a while since marie digby sang her heart out…i love her songs and i adore her great great passion in composing great songs but it was just now (as in just now) that i got the chance to viw her youtube page and hear her songs and digest it by heart…OHMYGOSH!! she is so damn great singer and writer…she really moved me…i can feel her soul in every word that she is trying to sewed up…

after hearing her song UNFOLD…it was like “uuuurrrgggghhhh!!! that’s me! that is really me…i was so thrilled hearing her words…i felt like “THIS SONG IS REALLY FOR ME” and maybe for you too…as a writer, she inspired me to write more and just write whatever i wanted to write and just BE ME and BE NOT AFRAID to SHOW MYSELF…

try to visit her youtube page “she is not just a beautiful face”… http://ie.youtube.com/user/MarieDigby

UNFOLD by Marie Digby

 

what i can remember
is alot like water
trickling down a page
of the most beautiful colors
i can’t quite put my
finger down on the moment
that i became like … this 
 
  you see, i’m the bravest girl
you will ever come to meet
and yet i shrink down to nothing
at the thought of someone
really seeing me
i think my heart is wrapped around
and tangled up in winding weeds

but i don’t wanna go on living
being so afraid of showing
someone else my.. imperfections
even though my feet are trembling
and every word i say comes stumbling
i will bare it all.. watch me unfold
unfold

these hands that i hold
behind my back are
bound and broken by my own doing
and i can’t feel
anything, anymore
i need a touch to remind me
i’m still real..

my soul
it’s dying to be free
i can’t live the rest of my life
so guarded
it’s up to me to choose..
what kind of life i lead.

cause i don’t wanna go on living
being so afraid of showing
someone else my.. imperfections
even though my feet are trembling
and every word i say comes stumbling
i will bare it all.. watch me unfold
unfold
i will allow someone to love me
i will allow someone to love me… 

 

love me.. love me…

SONG FOR MYSELF… 🙂

RCYCC: define LDP…

aba! siyempre!! the MOST ABUSED WORD…

haiiizzz!!! how will i describe my whole experience in RCYCC: Leadership Development Program (LDP)…if i would literally define LDP but asking myself how would i really define LDP…hmmm lets see, i can say “SWEET TORTURE”…believe it or not it really was! but i tell you every sweat and every pound that had been shed was sooo darn WORTH IT, and when i mean WORTH IT- it really does worth it!

i myself being part of the 2nd batch dated October 15-16, 2008 from 8Am-5PM…i could really say that woah! it really was a dedication for EVERYONE to give their 18 hours of LEISURE TIME especially now it’s semestral break…

and if you would ask me, what was my first purpose of attending the LDP…honestly im only after the certificate that i will be getting…not thinking of “hey rio, that was the dumbest and most stupid reason ever!!”…but after ALL the HARDWORK and CHALLENGES i never thought that i could gain A LOT!!!

Everybody is a leader in some respect, that is what Joshua Chasez said about leadership and being able to be part of this leadership training makes me again think? Yeah! Why not be a leader in your own simple ways!!! There is no perfect formula not even a single strategy for us to be called A PERFECT LEADER but for me it’s how you see yourself, mold, and work on yourself to your own perfection…and when you find that special mark that makes you an exquisite leader-then that’s the time you can finally say that “I am changed”…and that’s how LDP scratched its mark in me…I don’t know how exactly its struck me but it literally hit me…all the hard work was like my parents molding me to become a better person not for their sake but for my own benefit, I may not know the reason behind it at first but life itself is a learning process and at the right and perfect timing time will bare it all….

back to my experience…all i can say was WAAAAHHH!!! it was so tough and certainly tiring…so exhausting but mind you guys just like what i have said “it was a very SWEET TORTURE”…you’re not doing everything just for the sake of doing it, but you’re doing it because of ONE GOAL!!!

MY UNFORGETTABLE EXPERIENCE:

LUNCH BREAK that was not so appetizing…imagine they asked us to bring our own packed lunch so we did…and when it was time to eat, they were the ones who prepared our food…we ate the food of EVERYBODY…hmmm sounds VERY EASY right! but here’s the catch- we were like eating a left over that was from the trash can ( like beggars…) yeah! yeah! the food itself was clean but the “donuts were sprinkled all over the whole food and they mashed the food with their own bare hands plus we were not allowed to feed ourselves in short “BAYANIHAN LIKE…eating with bare hands, not with your own bare hands…with someones hands”…yummy isnt?!? waaahhhh!!!! i feel like i was sooo full and i dont want to eat..its not because i hate the concept of feeding everybody with your own hands, it was definitely OK for me, but the main problem was the “GROSS FOOD”…not so healthy, but i really does understand the purpose…i respect them for doing that…i enjoy the experience but i dont know if i will be willing to do it again “maybe i will excluding the mashing of the food and the sprinkled donuts…”

—-

too bad i didnt get a single chance to capture every single moment…all the rush was pouring plus all the sweat was literally getting out of the system!!!

souvenirs from my co-redcrossers…

my name tag…sorry not so artistic…

AFTER THE LDP…

i want to scream and shout…yeah baby! finally it was all over…i can change my clothes and go home…my butt hurts…my feet sore…my hands were so untidy…my face was sooo oily and itchy…and i stink! hahaha…REKLAMADORA!!hehe oopppsss sorry i just got really exhausted to death but al in all ” i absolutely LOVED every second of it!…”

when i finally stepped my feet inside our house, i went straight to kitchen wash my filthy hands ang like a hungry greyhound i look for freezing cold drink…soooo refreshing…plus i wanted to get all the food in the fridge and stuck everything up in the microwave…i was sooo starving to death!!!

photo straight from the microwave…it was like a feast for me…yummy yummy

LDP…really a once in a life time experience…

tell me and i might forget, teach me and i’ll remember but involve me and i’ll learn ” -benjamin franklin

haizzz…finally the whole agony was over…the long wait had just finished a couple of hours ago…yeah! one more nerve racking slash terrifying exam and walah!!!—-SEMBREAK NA!!!

so before i got out of my computer and start reading, i just want to share my speech…i got a pretty satisfying grade…should i say it?!?hmmm i guess noddaa…(lets just keep it secret!ok?)

so here’s my FULL speech…with no revision (i cut some of it because we have a 3 MINUTES mark, so i have no choice but to delete some…)

Great achievement and great love involves great risks…

Everybody wants to create something BIG for themselves; more than just ordinary…a wonderful FAMILY, a perfect LOVE, fantastic JOB, magnificent LIFE…nobody wants to be a flash in the pan and be labeled as JUST ME…but have we ever tried to look and see ourselves in the mirror and ask ourselves-are we doing anything, something for that great things to happen?

There was once a woman with great courage who stood up firmly and lived by what she believes, IMPOSSIBLE was never in her vocabulary; Dra. Fe del Mundo- an educator, an author, a scientist and a researcher; 1st Filipina and 1st woman student of Harvard school of Medicine believe it or not it was never easy for her, she have sacrificed a lot leaving a material life and offering herself without thinking of what’s going to happen…That’s how great things all start, we don’t know what lies ahead we just have to let it go and let it be… we wont fully enjoy life unless we unlock ourselves and try new things…one must run mile after mile just to reach the end zone…carrying all the luggage of doubts, fears, worries and life’s uncertainties…and there will be point in time where we will get tired, experience failure and even rejection but people BE NOT AFRAID because all those things are part of what we call LIVING and just like what Reverend Diana Puno have said: “great and successful individuals are not those who never get wounded and never felt any pain but great people are those who have suffered a lot with all the scars and the marks tattooed on their skin… those people who are not afraid to fall, fail and be rejected one after the other… we cry, we stumble and we fall, but the point is LIFE IS ALL ABOUT TAKING RISKS…

Mountaineers have one goal in mind to reach the peak, love seekers have one goal in life to find perfect love, and athletes have one great goal in spirit to be no.1…no one told them to go for it and push themselves into limit…they just did…because they know how this tricky world revolves “nothing is certain…there are no assurances” but Sir Winston Churchill said : “we make a living by what we get and we make a life by what we give”…we are all dreamers-our stage is our world and it all lies in our hand if we will dare ourselves to live our dreams or we will be satisfied dreaming without merely having the glimpse of what’s inside…

There would always be that one great risk that we need to do for us to reach the peak of our own Mt. Everest…and just like what Elliott Yamin said “we have to take the 1st hardest step because there is place that we are just not there yet”…more to come more to offer…great achievement and great love involves great risks…
