My PERSONAL MISSION STATEMENT

Image
After reading Stephen Covey's "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People", I learned about writing your own Mission and Vision in life; about your Goals and Roles, and how you wanted to spend the rest of your life (without regret of course). You will always feel great if you have a life with DIRECTIONS. Knowing where you want to go is one of the first steps of having a well-spent life.
This is my Personal Mission Statement or PMS for the year, the month or the Life I wanted to achieve. My PMS is my Personal Constitution: the LAWS and PRINCIPLES I will lead my self with. Learn more about me and what I want my self to be in the future (my ideal self). InshaAllah, I will strive hard to achieve these goals.
 And now, I want YOU to do the same! Write your own PMS: what do you really want to achieve in your life? How would you want other people to remember who you are when you die? (Just read the book guys.)

Facing Fears.

Catching up on things.

There are times I just wanted to do nothing but delve deep in my thoughts. Deep thoughts about anything, feeling tired (or rather, bored) of writing them down on my Journal; even how significant they may have been those moments... 
And in some instances, I just do not have enough time to write, or I feel too exhausted to even look for my always-hiding pen. But I always love to keep record of what's happening to me. Lest other people who will find my journal another 50 years from now would know nothing about me.
And here I am.

"How would it feel to DIE suddenly in a small market you do not even know where..." You were shot with a gun; and you're falling to the ground. A man who happened to know you (or thought knew you; and certainly you haven't met him before) had just fired a bullet, piercing through your heart... 
THUD! You fell t…

New Things in a new World

Image
After almost a week of trying to "blend in" with this new society I am living with in Zamboanga, certain (and really sudden) changes had to take place; be it in my personal ways of living life to the places I go to. And now that I finally had the time to sit down and write or blog about this new adventure I have, sharing it with the world is the first thing I wanted to do!
1) I HAVE A NEW ROOM slash HOUSE slash OFFICE slash PHOTO-GALLERY
Yup, you read it right!  I have finally found a good, and comfortable place to live in--or rent. I am now staying in ALLIAN COMPOUND, BULAHAN DRIVE, SAN JOSE ROAD, ZAMBOANGA CITY. Anyone looking for me, you are always welcome... (specially sa mga magpa-sign ng autographs, biro lang). And yes, I have a number of plans for my room-slash-and-so-on, kasama na dun ang gawin etong isang small GALLERY ng mga ARTS and WORKS ko... I just need to settle some problems and reapir/clean the room muna.

2) I MISSED MY SHARES. I missed my 2-cups, 1 viand sha…

METAMORPHOSIS: Adjusting in a new Life in Zamboanga

Fast Post lang to.
Fourth day in Zamboanga: I am just about to Explore a new world, a new life...
First day, After a half-day rest at my Auntie's 'unfinished house' (wala pa ngang pintuan at bintana eh), I went to the Literacy for Peace and Development (LIPAD) Regional Office (My future Office). To those who will be looking for me in the future, daan lang kayo sa Boulevard, sa harap ng Grandstand (Forgot the name). I found it Empty pa for the mean time, and I have a lot of things to do para magstart yung office to function well. As of what is the office for; what LIPAD Project is; anung trabaho ko dun, InshaAllah I will post in a later date. (Andami na rin kasi nagtatanong. I am also planning to create a website din for the program para dun na kayo magcheck ng details...). Basta, I have a new life to start.
More details later.
Found a good place to stay din. And now I need to Budget everything. try ko muna for one month (food and lodging) kung ilan magastos ko, then decide if …
