Another one of my selfies, haha. I really apologize that I don’t get to update these days, but hey, I’m really enjoying my summer vacation right now. :)
Lately these days I’ve been very exhausted and I tell myself always that, “I need to get a break before classes even start.” Yup, it’s only a month away and all I could really think about is how my classes would look like in college. You could say I’m pretty excited, yet still nervous at the same time. I can’t wait for college to commence!!!
Fortunately, I’m done revamping my blog after so many weeks of changing my theme and still getting unsatisfied of the result. I think the current one suits my taste as of the moment. Haha.
Enjoy the rest of your summer! :)
Time to Chill @ Green Lagoon Park
It was such a long and tiring week for me - and I am both emotionally and physically exhausted - that I needed some time to basically rejuvenate myself. We finally had some time to get away from our normal lives for a while, so we made a trip last May 5, 2013 to one of Compostela, Cebu’s famous resorts - the Green Lagoon Park! :)
The view was beautiful and relaxing, but the heat definitely killed our imagined excursions to tour around the place. Our cottage was supposed to be right in front of the beach, but we transferred near the pool area so they could guard my sisters while swimming.
The splendid view of the pool area! The water wasn’t really deep but the sun’s heat could definitely hit you big time. Summer is just too hot!
I acquired a brownish complexion right after our escapade but it was really worth it. I didn’t get myself out of the pool not until we were headed home already. Basically, I stayed there the whole time we were there. I still have sores until now but I’m simply coping up with it. Haha.
I definitely enjoyed the slide there! Who says it’s only for kids? I’m an adult but I screamed a lot just when I was sliding down. Haha! There is always that thrill that I feel whenever I splash myself down to the depths of the water (though in that case the water wasn’t entirely deep, but I can’t count the times I drowned myself. Boo.). My little sister was diligent enough to put up with me to shot pictures. *u*
Swimming could definitely exhaust you, especially if it takes arms and limbs to practice yourself how to do so! I’m not a great swimmer (really, I’m the worse :c), but I really tried my best that time. I run out of air easily so I get a hard time doing it. Hehe. Their coconut juice was just simply refreshing.
For a day, at least, I was able to relax my mind and stop myself from resolving unresolved problems. I was really at the brink of confusion of telling myself what to do, what with my failing judgment of my problems and how to fix them. But thank God because He helped me in those times when I needed a tap on my shoulder. He was always there and He never left me ‘til I felt the resolution to my problems. You are always never alone, because He is there even at your worst.
This resort is ideal for perfect adventurous trips. They also have ziplines, jetskis, and banana boats offered. And you have the option whether to go to the pool or beach. They also have a souvenir shop and a special store catered to selling swimming outfits and goggles, so you won’t have a hard time ever to finish off your relaxation.
Have you been enjoying your summer so far? It’s never too late to capture memories with people you enjoy being with. Happy summer, everyone! :)
When things go wrong as they sometimes will;
When the road you are trudging seems all up hill;
When the funds are low, and the debts are high;
And you want to smile, but have to sigh;
When care is pressing you down
Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.
Success is failure turned inside out;
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt;
And you can never tell how close you are;
It may be near when it seems a far.
So stick to the fight when your hardest hit;
It’s when things go wrong that you musn’t quit.
A poem shared by a fellow Carolinian that I happened to read when I was passing by CC’s page. Super enlightening! I definitely need this :)
I bet if we dusted her heart for fingerprints, we’d only find yours.

Anonymous asked: it's really so good to hear you blog again! i hope that whatever sadness u have now, i hope u feel okay soon. please be okay soon. and please write some more, especially this summer! xoxox
Thank you. :) Nah, I’m just feeling a bit off because I don’t want some people to take advantage of my vulnerability. It sucks to know that you love someone so much and they could just afford to scream in your face. What is wrong in this world now? :) Haha. I shall write more, yes. I really missed it here!!!
Why do some people like to hurt other people so much? Does it even justify that we make it even for them because they hurt us as well? Can we not change the ways and love the people unconditionally, and understand them as well?
It’s bad enough that I’m very sensitive with people I deal with. It’s even worse because I am supposing they could just hurt my feelings because I easily forgive people. Well, for self defense reasons, I don’t want to underestimate the power of psychological control, and thus I SHALL DRIFT AWAY FROM SOME PEOPLE UNLESS THEY TELL ME SO.
