May 02, 2017: 2 Days in Chicago: Day 2

We woke up really early that Sunday. Like, around 6 am, we were already up but really sleepy though. The major event for the day would be the play at the Opera Theatre in downtown Chicago on Wacker Drive. But, early that morning, we were just preparing and watching TV in bed. The breakfast buffet that morning was from 7 to 10 am, and we decided to go later that morning and use this time to prepare ourselves. Well, we […]

May 01, 2017: 2 Days in Chicago: Day 1

2 days ago, we went to the largest city within 50 miles of here. The bustling beautiful city of Chicago was home to many beautiful buildings and parks. 2 days ago, around 9 in the morning, we were up and preparing everything we needed for the vacation ahead. Although we had prepared for the trip just the night before, we still needed to prepare the small stuff we kept in our bags. At around 10 am, we got an Über […]

April 26, 2017: Moving and Packing

Yesterday, Grams moved out of her apartment to transfer here at Granny Gail’s. It all started 2 days when we packed like mad men. Actually, the house was much cleaner before we started cleaning it, which was the irony. We started with the balikbayan boxes, the boxes that are extra large meant for shipping pasalubong or treats and goodies for the family living back home in the Philippines. We had this cool Belen, the Netivity inside of a ceramic Christmas […]

April 24, 2017: To Keep or not to Keep, That is the Question

Some people put sentimental value on their objects saying that it belongs to a loved one and that that object was his or her favorite. Now it’s okay to do that in remembrance of that person, holding on to that object to never forget how much you loved that person, however, it is a bad thing if you become too attached. In our apartment, we have 5 pianos. 1 baby grand piano and 5 standalone, all of which belonged to […]

April 29, 2017: Why I Like To Talk

Many people think that this is a girl’s trait to talk a lot, and I like talking a lot. However, one of reasons why I like to talk is because I have all the questions and topics and answers. One can never stop a person’s curiosity, even if it killed the cat. It’s just human nature to seek the truth and to know more. And so I answer people’s questions with extremely detailed answers so I can share how much […]

April 17, 2017: Education

Sometimes being at a school doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re smart. There are many other subjects to study about, and the regular schools just cover the most basic of subjects. These schools just prepare you for the world out there, but lots of us can’t even retain the most boring of subjects that racked our brains for years. That’s why some people are classified as dumb or stupid, but that simply isn’t true. And those subjects may be useless to […]

April 19, 2017: Confidence

Confidence is an ability everybody is supposed to have, but maybe you just haven’t unlocked it yet. I’m gonna use me as an example. Around 5 years ago, I never wanted to go onstage, let alone be anywhere near it for the fear of getting called on by the MC or speaker. After attending a supposed only-for-adults seminar with absolutely no kids besides me, I met Obet Cabrillas, or as many teens know him, Daddy O. Funny story how it […]

April 18, 2017: Paying Yourself

A different version of the equivalent of this blog which I also posted, this is about paying yourself and making yourself feel free. Grams is fine with a simple home, simple food, simple treats here and there, completely content with everything. However, it’s actually quite suffocating for me to see Grams not treating herself to some fancy food at a fancy restaurant from time to time. The only country she has ever been in is US, and she never went […]

April 18, 2017: Being Generous Versus Being Too Generous

It has been said that you can’t give blessings if you don’t have any. The Law of Attraction says that you should receive blessings first before you receive any. Imagine if you had an empty pitcher and an empty glass. How can the pitcher give the glass any water if there isn’t any in the first place? The same principle works for people as well. You can’t give generously to others if you have nothing to spare. My Grams is […]

April 17, 2017: Being Grateful

Being grateful is the most important task of the day. You must always be grateful to have a successful day in your work or school. Let me give a demonstration. Today, complain. Whine as much as you want about your daily duties and how they make you tired and ache a lot. Complain and ask God why you’re still alive and why He’s giving you this pain called responsibility. Even if someone gives you blessings, let’s say a cup of […]
