this video was made by the 1bsa-m3 (07-08) students of ateneo de davao university for the fycf culminating activity. within the video are the different faces of the persons who accepted me as their new classmate during my second semester in addu. they were also the persons who made me realize that "if you want to excel and get good grades, you have to work for it." i'll never forget them..
special thanks to: ralph, tim, mykel, ann, nor, queen, ching, roda, gil, mia, zai, jane, muz, francine..:)
the picture above was taken by kenny around 9pm of april 26. within it are the persons i talked with from 7pm to 12 m idnight last saturday. we didn’t notice the time because we really enjoyed talking about each other’s life. it was a night full of laughers, smiles and realizations..
one of the topics raised by renren was about my height. she asked me, “why are you not tall?” i answered her, “we actually have the same question ren. why? why? why? why am i not tall?” then, my cousin annevi answered me, “nobody is perfect, diba?.” i just laughed at them and said, “yeah, maybe. because if i’m tall, i would be perfect.” they all laughed and said i was “feeling”. they didn’t know that it’s my only way to make myself feel better. i am contended in everything that i have in life. i can’t seem to ask for more except for additional inches to add on my height.. i know that i would be happier if i am taller but i always should be happy with what i have.. the topic about how petite i am was changed and was completely forgotten until we stopped our conversations..
right after i bid them goodbye, i headed to my room and faced the mirror to have a better view of myself. i then grabbed my little book and wrote down what i felt that night. and here is what i wrote:
“i’m tired of answering the same question over and over again. i hate it every time other persons remind me about the thing i lack.. thanks God, i’m a positive thinker. i only have think of the good things that i possess and then, i feel good again. all i need is to remind myself that my imperfections are the things that make other people notice me. this is me – God’s masterpiece.. i have to love myself..”
I LOVE MYSELF. and i’m glad i always do.

17 years ago, she had two choices – either to give birth to a child or not to. luckily, she chose the first one and i’m glad she did it. if she didn’t make that choice, i will miss my chance of experiencing what it’s like to be living in an inconvenient-yet-convenient-in-some-ways world.. did i confuse you with that? i would take yes for an answer ‘cause i, myself, would answer the same thing *LOL* anyway, let’s get back to how she made the right choice. just after she gave birth to me, she had again another two choices – either to raise me up and make me feel she want me as a daughter or the opposite of the first. being lucky for the second time around, she chose the first one. she raised me up with a loving father and both of them made me feel i’m always wanted..

The section that other can’t go along
Many think we are the worst
Without thinking we can be the first
We are composed of many kinds
Which makes our section one of a kind
Each one has different talent and personality
That makes our adviser proud of his advisory
Many problems come to test us
But God is always there to help us
That is, III – St. Mutien Marie
The section that will always be in me.
