Day 41/100: Quiet Place.
Helps my life a lot! Go here if you want to try! :)
"If I would compare Lourdes to any song, it will be the very song I compared with my Mother. The song goes this way. "You tucked me in and turned out the light kept me safe and sound at night, little girl, depends on things like that. Brushed my teeth and combed my hair had to drive me everywhere, you were always there when I look back. You had to do it all alone make a living, make a home. Must have been as hard as it could it be."
Four years ago, my father died. Since then, I’m like a shattered puzzle figure. Like a huge part of me is gone and no one, not even my mother can fill it in. Isn’t ironic that inside the 4 blue walls of Lourdes, I was able to collect and find the missing pieces of my shattered puzzle. I want to take this opportunity to thank each puzzle piece.
To my second mothers & foster fathers:
Mrs. Alnajes, who saw me grow up, be mature enough to make right choices. She’s the one who cared like a grandmother. One time, she made me cry so hard, she told me, “Hindi ka naman ganyan Colin, eh.” and then, that moment, I knew, she cares for and believes in me.
Sir Carlo, who was my adviser in SAB for 2 years. A father but more like a barber. but, he made me rethink of my priorities in life.
Mrs. Lumbre, who can be anyone. Adviser, teacher, a mother, a sister, a best friend an inspiration. I never thought we would be this close but, I’m glad that we are. She made me believe that all things are indeed possible and She made me believe that wonder woman exists because for me, that’s her. and someday, I want to come back in Lsqc and proudly say, I’m now a wonder woman like her.
Ms. Chat, some of the lines from her. “Piliin mo mga iniiyakan mo” “Make me proud anak” “When you’ve done your part and it’s beyond your control, you have to let it go.” She taught me how to be a strong person, physically, mentally, spiritually because Ms. Chat is one of the strongest & smartest women I know, who did not gave up on us, Justice. I know she does not have a choice, but I know too that if she did have, she would choose to stay.
To all my 4th year teachers, Ms. Regner, Sir Gervic, Sir Ron, Sir Silao, Mrs. Dignos, Sir Elpol, Sir Castillo. Thank you.
To the friends I will keep for the rest of my life.
Coleen, I miss you.
Erica, Sting, Nate, Vianca, Armand, Cali - I woudnt survive LIFE without you guys. Mahal ko kayo, sobra. You guys are huge puzzle pieces. And I’m sure, until the end of our days, we’ll still be best friends. The ones who will cry so hard at each other’s funeral.
Gabo, there is no assurance that we’ll end up together but I just want you to know that, having you is like having my own Patrick, my own Marshall, my own Mickey, my own Christof, my own beast sometimes. You’re an all in one package that the universe seems to want me to have.
IV-Justice, III-Patience, II-Purity, I-Faith
SAB, who shaped into becoming a better person, the very reason why I am here. We may not met all your expectations but I am proud of what we have accomplished because I believe that for every project, every event, ever proposal we did were all for the entire student body. As much as we would like to do more, time has come to an end for us and we would like to thank you all for thr support and cooperation. But, we will not stop. Together with my co-officers, Juanch, Carlo, Cali, Mark & Jedrek, we will continue igniting the leader in us.
With all these, I am grateful beyond measure That I got to meet these puzzle pieces. They will always be with me wherever I go. Thank you & Pax Et Bonum!”
