I feel good about today. My complaining about having to stay in the province has got to stop. It is very ungrateful and insensitive and stupid of me to complain about something as trivial as this. Sure, there isn’t much to do here, the internet connection is blah, and I’m basically stuck in the house since I got nowhere to go, but it isn’t that bad. Looking at the bright side, I could see that I have seven dogs with me here (one is with my sisters in Manila, at the moment), a Kindle loaded with over a dozen new books I could read at my disposal, and an external hard drive that has TV series and movies I could watch day and night. That’s only three of several things I should be thankful for, but for the past week I just make this place sound so horrible, even if that isn’t really the case. Lastly, and this is the most important thing I always forget to be grateful for, is my previous semester’s grades. I passed everything, I didn’t even get a 3.0, and having passed all my subjects, I would not attend classes this summer. That’s why I’m stuck here in the province, but I didn’t fail anything!! Several of my classmates got failures, and being sad about having to stay in the province seems all the more shallow of me. I pray that they’d get through this bump on the road. I didn’t say I prefer Laguna over Manila now, for I still would very much love to stay in Manila… all my friends are there, and there are plenty of places to go to… but I should stop my whining/complaining/ranting and just enjoy my time here, and that’s exactly what I’ll be doing from this day on.

March 22, 2012 I was blessed enough to have been able to spend time with two lovely ladies yesterday afternoon. And I’ve come to realize that it really is amazing to be with people who are on fire for God, and just be able to talk about Him without fear of putting off the person you’re talking to. No man is an island. Our walk with Christ should not be made alone, but instead with godly people. People who are there to support, to help you grow, and to accompany you on the journey. I’m glad I finally made time for this. I can see God placing the puzzle pieces in my life. Perfect fit. Perfect timing.

So long, Fish. And thank you. While watching the Timberwolves/Lakers game earlier, my twin passed by and I said out loud, Me: "Kilala mo si Fisher? Yung maliit na kalbo? Wala na siya. Tinrade siya ng Lakers." Twin: "Haaalaaa. Bakit? Siya yung naka-shoot before mag-buuuuuzzzz (she was pertaining to the buzzer) diba, napanuod ko yun kay daddy." Darn. Even for my twin sister who isn’t into basketball, Derek Fisher is clutch. *sob* My heart is still broken, I always thought he’d retire a Laker. But that’s business, that’s the NBA. Wishing D.Fish the best. He was an incredible asset to the Los Angeles Lakers. Thank you, Fish!

February and March Youth Series February: Weird Love March: WIKI Two series I didn’t fail to complete!¬†Weird Love was the first series I completed, meaning I got to attend a service every week from start to end of the said series, and WIKI was the second one. Today was the last Youth services for the second semester, and I’m grateful to have been able to attend the 19:00 service a while ago. I’m looking forward to returning to Victory Church maybe some time during the summer, and surely by the start of a new school year on June. To God be the glory!
