The Game of LIFE

"What would you do today, if you knew you wouldn't fail?" "Now, go do it."  - from the film, New Year's Eve.

For most time, we stop and restrict ourselves from doing the things we would love to do because we were afraid of failure.
"what if I fail?", "what if I am really bad at it?", "what if things turn out to be a huge mess?"

Do these thoughts seem familiar to you? I am pretty sure it's become a subconscious chant in our head already. In fact, it happens to me most often than not.

The only difference now is, I am gradually becoming conscious about these thoughts. I still hear it ringing in my head before I take a step out of my comfort zone. But when you start acknowledging these thoughts, I find, it has become a choice; instead of submitting passively into those thoughts. A choice of whether to listen to it, or to take a deep breath, silently telling myself, "thanks for the warning, but I am going to do it anyway" :)

If you have read or heard of the journeys of most of the already successful people in the world, they will tell you the same thing. They failed, failed, and failed before they start succeeding. They tried, practiced, learned and fought hard to become who they are right now.

And so, I told myself, after 6 months of stagnant results, I am going to start anew. I also realized that in order to do that, I had to first acknowledge it, let it go and move on.

If life is a game, I am visualizing a monopoly board game. I was a player who got past the quarter of the game and is now restarting.

My friend asked me one day, "why would you still want to play the game? Can't you go to the next board game? Scrabble, perhaps?"

My reason for staying on is simple. I love this game. I love the players, the system and the quality of the game. A game where everyone gets to start from zero and build their way up. A game where if and when I succeed, I know clearly what kind of person I will become. Not just the end result, but the journey and experience along the way will be priceless. I know that if I win this game, the rest will be simple.

That is enough, to keep me going.

I vow to the rest of the world, through this blog, that I will.

My mentor said to me,"You know, you're not exactly starting over from nothing. You have enough skills and experience already."

Merry Christmas!

At Christmas time I find myself feeling all those Christmas-associated feelings. The influence of Christ and Christian cheer runs rampant now more than any other time of year. It gladdens my heart and makes my spirit sing.

However, I get caught up with the concept of giving. One of my favorite books growing up was called "The Giver." That has nothing to do with this blog. Anyway - I find that I'm inhibited. I don't have the money to buy the things I would love to give people, and I find that I'm incapable of giving to others (to the fullest extent) the pieces of myself that I would like to give.

But I've been told it's the thought that counts. Too bad I don't entirely believe that.

However, in a feeble attempt to redeem myself and the lack of giving that I feel has taken place, I will tell you what I would give you if I could:
(you being the few who will actually read this blog. I hope you can easily identify yourselves.)

To my sister and brother:
I am so grateful to you, and as we have become better friends, I would wish only to give you my undying support and love. I would give you everything that is mine to give.

To Mom and Dad:
You gave me my life and all my strongest senses of right and wrong, and common sense. You have lead me, and guided me along my whole life - forgiving everything wrong and understanding everything in between. In return, I hope to relieve you with laughs, comfort you with care and understanding, and keep you involved with all the time I have to give, and honest communication in everything.

To my Crazy Friends:
You have given me instantaneous friendship, respect and kindheartedness. I have been overwhelmed, a bit, and surprised by the outpouring, but I really appreciate it so greatly. In return, I give you my fullest degree of gratitude and mutual friendliness, and my hope to cultivate this unexpected, rapid bond.

To Lance:
You have opened my mind, my heart and my eyes in countless ways. I am fascinated by who you are, who you have been, and who you want to be, and learn such new, interesting and engrossing aspects about myself and life because of it. I love who you make me want to be and hope that through my spasmodic and odd fits of life you can know that I hope to give back to you what you have given me. And know that if I could I would give you more time for you to see, listen and learn. But since that's not mine to give, all I can offer is my pure love, dearest friendship, highest respect, and a safe space you can fall back on.

At any rate - when angels sing, stars shine and faces smile - I can sing, shine and smile with them. And even though there is a tender regret within my heart, a feeling of inadequacy, a feeling that I should have done more, that i should have put out more, that i should have tried harder to give - I find comfort because it is upon this day that we celebrate Christ's birth, and I know that he CAN give those things that I cannot. He already has given us those things in many cases; the tools and talents to succeed, His support, love, respect, guidance, time and His life. 

Merry Christmas, my Friends and Family. I love you and I thank you. 

God bless us!

Books Vs Movies: The Maze Runner Experience

I have thought of this a long time ago that when you exactly execute a story from a book to a movie, it won't make sense at all. Perhaps you know why, not all senses can be applied to both. And mostly you get disappointed when it appears on the screen.

But not for THE MAZE RUNNER.

I have watched it first before I finished reading the book. Movie is really good, I was even screaming inside the movie theater for its outstanding cinematography. However, reading it was better. Why? You get to know more details that didn't appear in the movie and you'll understand why it can't be there (You do not need to be a film or a Communication Arts major to understand, just using your common sense will do). Just like the ending of the movie, they were rescued by men and brought to the helicopter. In the book, they were rescued but brought to the bus. The people watching the movie needed more visual excitement than just flat watching a boring bus going to its destination. Showing the entire maze from above was better, yes? There were so many alterations from the original story, but you can still appreciate both. And I'd like to congratulate the screenwriter for not disappointing me. He actually did well in his part.

Bottomline, just because you have watched the movie based from a book doesn't mean you'll lose your excitement when you read it. If you think you know the entire story by just watching, I promise you, you haven't. I have proven that to myself several times by watching and reading both counterparts of different stories. Cite, Twilight Saga! I bet majority of you got hooked in the movie even if you know the books were way better (and just so you know, the screenwriter of Twilight really sucked but many still enjoyed watching. It could have been better, right?). So as The Mortal Instrument, Divergent, The Fault in Our Stars, The Hunger Games trilogy, Nicholas Sparks stories and many other more.

P.S. If you have read it first before watching the movie, try to ask yourself "Will it be flabbergasting if ________ in the movie?"


P.P.S. Screenwriters also have a big responsibility to keep you interested watching the movie.

P.P.P.S. I suggest you do the same. It's a good exercise for the mind!

Sleep Is A Luxury

When I was still a grade schooler, my mom would force me to sleep every afternoon and early at night even if I don't feel like to. And when she's not around, my aunt would do the same. I asked my aunt why they have to do that to me. I expected to hear "For you to get taller". Instead she said: 

"Sleep is a luxury for us working people. So when I tell you to go to sleep, you better."

I took my chances to sleep whenever I can for granted. I chose to play outside or watch my favorite cartoon in the afternoon. I only understood her when I eventually entered college. It is when I have to accomplish a lot of school work in just a small span of time, I have to sleep late or sleep early than usual just to finish an assignment or to study for an examination. Worse, I have to sacrifice my sleep just to finish a major project and meet the deadline.  

But thank God! The first semester in my senior year just ended! It was was hell awful than the previous semesters I had! And since it's finally sembreak I can have that luxury now!  

Oh yeaaaaaah!

Seen 9:40 AM

I want to bring back those days when all instant messaging don't notify people if their messages have been read, when "seen zoned" doesn't exist. I guess only e- mails and regular text messaging don't have that. YET. 

Why?

Because people will start questioning you:

"Why didn't you reply to my message. I know you read it"

"What's taking you long to reply when you are able to see it there and then"

"Why why why?????????????"

Sometimes, they will even flood you messages because they know you're reading those until you finally reply to them.

Worst case scenario, they'll get hurt. They'll jump to conclusions of why you won't reply as soon you read their messages. Because of these, you are pressured to respond immediately, because they're already demanding for your time and it is really annoying when the truth is:

1.) You really don't want to reply to their messages because those aren't important.

2.) If you're the kind of person who is on work mode like me, you'll only have split seconds to read their messages, but have no minute to give a reply.

3.) You can't send a message yet, because you're trying to confirm something to someone before you get back to them OR

4.) You're still thinking of what to answer back especially if that's a serious question.

It's really better if they don't know whether you have read their messages or not. The demand isn't that much. You are also not pressured to send back a message immediately. And by "You" meant ME. 

I Have Failed This... Dream

                  

Do you watch the Arrow? The guy who says, "You have failed this city", every time he catches a bad guy?

I dreamed about him last night as himself, Stephen Amell. He was in our country having a mall tour. And I was there at the very first row of the seats. The weird thing was, we were only less than 20 people who went to that mall tour. However, that's better because I was able to talk to him longer and asked a picture with him. He said, "Sure pretty babe. Let's have as many as you want". He hugged me so tightly and he even kissed me on my forehead and I didn't see that coming! The guy who was taking our picture was very jolly and I almost wanted to ask a picture with him too.

It felt so real I even checked my phone as soon ad I woke up! And as expected, my pictures with Stephen weren't there :(((

What a disappointment. I should have stayed asleep. I wanted more time with my celebrity crush :((( sigh.

It all started with a lemon and now I sticked to DIY natural beauty products

I used to have acne problems back when I was still a teenager. I tried almost every product that will help remove my acne. I've also been to a derma clinic, but none helped me solve my problem. I'm about to accept the fact that they will never disappear until "Rated K", a magazine show hosted by Korina Sanchez, featured a topic related to acne. From there, I found out that just an application of pure lemon extract on your face (well, she dipped a cotton ball) every night before you go to sleep will dry the acne instantly.

I've got nothing to lose but a few pesos to buy a lemon. So the next dat I went to a supermarket, bought one and tried it at home.

Guess what! It worked! I consistently applied lemon for a week and and it's like something magical happened to my face!  I really couldn't believe it! My face is finally pimple free! I should have discovered this earlier! I regret spending a lot of money for those facial cleansers that didn't work from the past. However, what the tv show didn't mention is that it hurts every time you apply lemon on your face. There is this certain reaction when you just want to scratch your face but you can't. You'll get used to it eventually. And I guarantee that you'll get good results too.

Because of that one natural ingredient- lemon, my perspective has changed. I stopped buying commercial shampoos, moisturizers and scrubs. I replaced them all with my DIY natural beauty products. They showed better results than those products that you see on television. Not only that, I am able to save more money because the ingredients I needed are way much cheaper than the commercialized.

Now, if you ask me what I use for as a shampoo, I'd say a BAKING SODA. As for my body scrub, I use BROWN SUGAR w/ EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL.  For my facial moisturizer, I apply a dip of pure HONEY and of course my facial cleanser, LEMON.

I'm still doing a research to use as a lotion. And with the help of eating lots of fruits and  vegetables, I can say I AM ALL NATURAL.

If you have the same problem as mine, give a DIY NATURAL BEAUTY PRODUCT a try! ;)

A Copywriter's Creative Resume

Today, I presented my creative resumé in class as a final exam. The goal is to sell myself as a copywriter. And after excellently presenting it to the panelists, who have high positions in the advertising industry in my country, I also gained confidence to share my work to you.

I made my resumé looked like a salad recipe book. And from the cover page you will immediately find out what kind of person I am and what principles and values I hold in life. For those who don't know me yet, I am a senior communication student graduating few months from now, and just because I do not major in visual design doesn't mean I cannot execute something like this.


So... why a salad recipe book?

I personally love salads, green and fruit ones. And I believe I am a salad. It has several vibrant colors that exactly represents who I am, for I am an energetic person who can contribute abundant and fresh ideas for a given project, and that's just what a copywriter should have. In addition, I promote health and fitness to everyone (A passion I'll always live by). 

"Inside are the fresh ingredients I have that will give you a reason why you should hire me as a copywriter", I confidently said. I know one of the panelists was impressed when he said, "You are now hired!"

Below is the first page of my recipe book. I extended my concept inside by placing variety of salads in each page. This is also where I placed the summary of the contents. And since this book is less than 10 pages, I changed the paging with the image of salads instead of the usual numbers. 

"I want people to know me as the young fit copywriter. Young means new and fresh; and Fit is synonymous to capable and competent. And a copywriter like me have them all!"


The next two pages are basically my objective, summary of qualification, and work experience.


 Inside are just a few of my works; such as product description, concept statements, movie poster, flyers, copies, tv scripts, radio scripts, short stories, commercials, media kit and done productions.



The last page is where I placed my interests in an article type (I also dream of being featured in a magazine someday, you know! ).


et voilà! A creative resumé! I hope you liked it too :))) And to those who are searching for a creative resumé, I hope this inspires you :)))

Worthless Blog Entry

I know my blog posts usually start with "It's been a long time since I posted anything here" because I'm no longer active blogging like I used to. Blame Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for that.

But it's really been such a long long long long long time. A lot of things already happened in my life such as; I had an amazing internship last summer, my ex boyfriend broke up with me before I celebrated my birthday, I turned 20 this May, I'm finally a college senior, thesis makes me have less time doing my workout, I have a new boyfriend again who is really supportive, protective and really really charming, and a lot more; but I still can't find a good reason to post one tonight.

Sigh. 

But I wanted to update this blog, to let people who follow me know that I'm still here, reading theirs too while thinking of a good topic to post. Unfortunately, I have nothing.

I actually had few minutes ago when I was inside the bathroom contemplating about how I drastically changed from being picky with guys to not anymore. But meh. Are you even interested to know about it? I don't think so. But if you're interested, just message me and I'll be willing to share that to you.

So, here I am again in my bed going to sleep without anything in my head.

The Game of LIFE

"What would you do today, if you knew you wouldn't fail?" "Now, go do it."  - from the film, New Year's Eve.

For most time, we stop and restrict ourselves from doing the things we would love to do because we were afraid of failure.
"what if I fail?", "what if I am really bad at it?", "what if things turn out to be a huge mess?"

Do these thoughts seem familiar to you? I am pretty sure it's become a subconscious chant in our head already. In fact, it happens to me most often than not.

The only difference now is, I am gradually becoming conscious about these thoughts. I still hear it ringing in my head before I take a step out of my comfort zone. But when you start acknowledging these thoughts, I find, it has become a choice; instead of submitting passively into those thoughts. A choice of whether to listen to it, or to take a deep breath, silently telling myself, "thanks for the warning, but I am going to do it anyway" :)

If you have read or heard of the journeys of most of the already successful people in the world, they will tell you the same thing. They failed, failed, and failed before they start succeeding. They tried, practiced, learned and fought hard to become who they are right now.

And so, I told myself, after 6 months of stagnant results, I am going to start anew. I also realized that in order to do that, I had to first acknowledge it, let it go and move on.

If life is a game, I am visualizing a monopoly board game. I was a player who got past the quarter of the game and is now restarting.

My friend asked me one day, "why would you still want to play the game? Can't you go to the next board game? Scrabble, perhaps?"

My reason for staying on is simple. I love this game. I love the players, the system and the quality of the game. A game where everyone gets to start from zero and build their way up. A game where if and when I succeed, I know clearly what kind of person I will become. Not just the end result, but the journey and experience along the way will be priceless. I know that if I win this game, the rest will be simple.

That is enough, to keep me going.

To Lance:

Worthless Blog Entry

I know my blog posts usually start with "It's been a long time since I posted anything here" because I'm no longer active blogging like I used to. Blame Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for that.

But it's really been such a long long long long long time. A lot of things already happened in my life such as; I had an amazing internship last summer, my ex boyfriend broke up with me before I celebrated my birthday, I turned 20 this May, I'm finally a college senior, thesis makes me have less time doing my workout, I have a new boyfriend again who is really supportive, protective and really really charming, and a lot more; but I still can't find a good reason to post one tonight.

Sigh. 

But I wanted to update this blog, to let people who follow me know that I'm still here, reading theirs too while thinking of a good topic to post. Unfortunately, I have nothing.

I actually had few minutes ago when I was inside the bathroom contemplating about how I drastically changed from being picky with guys to not anymore. But meh. Are you even interested to know about it? I don't think so. But if you're interested, just message me and I'll be willing to share that to you.

So, here I am again in my bed going to sleep without anything in my head.
