There's Hope

There’s Hope India Arie
I thought that I needed a lot
A little was over rated,
but a lot was a little too complicated
You see-Zero didn't satisfy me
A million didn't make me happy
That's when I learned a lesson
That it's all about your perception
Hey-are you a pauper or a superstar
So you act, so you feel, so you are
It ain't about the size of your car
It's about the size of the faith in your heart

There's hope
It doesn't cost a thing to smile
You don't have to pay to laugh
You better thank God for that

There's hope

[Verse 2:]
Off in the back country of Brazil
A met a young brother that made me feel
That I could accomplish anything.
You see just like me he wanted to sing
He had no windows and no doors
He lived a simple life and was extremely poor
On top of all of that he had no eye sight,
but that didn't keep him from seein' the light
He said, what's it like in the USA,
and all I did was complain
He said-livin' her…

Week 1- Complete!

Words to describe it: Shocking Tiring Yet I always look forward for the next day that I'll see them again.

We had been assigned in a public elementary school in Quezon City. It will be a 12-day Summer Class for all incoming grade three kids. 
First Day Looking back when I was in grade three I was already turning 9 years old. However, these incoming kids are more or less 7 years old. With the K-12 new curriculum a lot of changes are happening. I haven’t really had the time to go through the new curriculum. I promised myself that I will do that. Soon is soon. Going back to my kids, yes, they are my kids now. First day was merely an introduction of three of us. We are working as a triad- one teacher for each subject- English, Math and Science. 
Asked what they want to be when they grow up, they have ready answers-- teacher, doctor, seaman, police, and soldier. Makes me want to think what did I say when I was their age.
We had 12 kids on our class on our first day. We were expecting 60, coz th…

Para Sayo

Habang sinusulat ko ito, puno ang dibdib ko ng takot. Takot ako kasi baka hindi sapat ang kakayahan ko para matulungan kang abutin ang mga pangarap mo. Takot ako kasi baka hindi mo ako hayaang makapasok sa mundo mo. Takot ako kasi baka mali ang mga maituro ko sayo. At marami pang ibang dahilan na nagbibigay alinlangan sakin kung tama ba ang desisyon kog hangaring maging parte ng pagsisimula mong mangarap. Nag-aalinlangan ako kung may maidudulot bang mabuti ang presensya ko sa buhay-paaralan mo. Lahat ng ito ay nagsimula sa isang hangarin. Takot man ako subalit di ako napigilan nitong humarap sayo at ilahad ang intensyon kong maging bahagi ng tagumpay mo.
Minsan din ay nagtanim ako ng galit sa mundo naging malaking tanong sakin ang bakit ako nito pinagkaitan ng ginhawa. Hindi hiniling na mamulat na salat sa mga material na bagay. At naghihikahos sa bawat araw. Subalit naisip ko, may ibang kwento ang buhay ko at ang sayo rin. At naghihintay ang mundo na makita ito. Isang kwento ng tagu…
