slideshow for you

Last year, I made compilation of my files from paper works to files and photos of previews events I attended. Though I find it cool, still I need an area or anything convenient where I can organize them altogether. Of course, my compilation includes the events and places I just visited within the year. It's always nice to see things in proper places and order. They're easy to locate too. I want my personal captures in place. I find joy in having them gathered together. Last year, I tried making slideshows of photos I gathered from the series of events, like family and social gathering, however, when I start to view them from time to time, I felt like the loading ate most of my time.

This time, I want them something new like jquery slideshow , that will help me make my slideshows more quick to download because it is user friendly. The features are customized too. I sure would recommend this to my friends who love to make their captured memories all in one beautiful and organized show.

Happy Weekend!Ciao!:)


dear God...

I see it slowly coming true in your perfect time. Bless that I may have enough courage to face another stage in my life. Only in you that I find solace as I take each moment with hope and a persevering heart and mind..bless not only my personal wants but mostly, that which you plan for me. God, forgive my shortcomings as I try to be worthy Christian. Guide my decisions and let my waiting be worth it all. Amen.


Father and Son

It's not time to make a change,
Just relax, take it easy.
You're still young, that's your fault,
There's so much you have to know.
Find a girl, settle down,
If you want you can marry.
Look at me, I am old, but I'm happy.

I was once like you are now, and I know that it's not easy,
To be calm when you've found something going on.
But take your time, think a lot,
Why, think of everything you've got.
For you will still be here tomorrow, but your dreams may not.

How can I try to explain, cause when I do it turns away again.
It's always been the same, same old story.
From the moment I could talk I was ordered to listen.
Now there's a way and I know that I have to go away.
I know I have to go.

It's not time to make a change,
Just sit down, take it slowly.
You're still young, that's your fault,
There's so much you have to go through.
Find a girl, settle down,
if you want, you can marry.
Look at me, I am old, but I'm happy.

All the times that I cried, keeping all the things I knew inside,
It's hard, but it's harder to ignore it.
If they were right, I'd agree, but it's them they know not me.
Now there's a way and I know that I have to go away.
I know I have to go.



Express yourself with emoticons

Some years back, when I was still ignorant to computer, I was content finding a very good friend enjoying her games online, even the chatting she was once used to almost everyday with her friends in the virtual world. While I found joy in watching her typing the keyboard, I saw how fun the emoticons she used each time. Well, it's okay to be cool. :P

The 21st century already gives rise to all kinds of gadgets that even I myself will have to keep pace. The fun thing in it is that there are lots of things that you'll still get to enjoy for free. As it is my turn this time to enjoy the latest technology, just as how my good friend back then used to, I thought of something exciting that free emoticons can offer. While I freely express my different emotions I also get to freely enjoy myemoticons.com   and how cool these emoticons make me feel. Oh yeah! I feel like a child again. Well, just savor the thing of the youth. Every inch of life is a gift.

So, express yourself! A blessed weekend. :)

Improving my outdoor

I've always believed that I am an artist. Even when I was still a child, I've always wanted to put a touch of art to my works whether in school or some tasks my older sisters and mom asked me to do. Even when our house was very little, still, I always wanted things to be orderly and in place artistically from the position of our dining set to the couch in the living room. But my interest to designing things my very way didn't end there. As I grow old, I continue to think in mind how things around me back home are supposed to be in place. Not that I am obsessive compulsive, I just simply love to do home chores by doing improvement on my own.

This time, I thought of a wonderful project for home design. I thought of improving my lawn. This might help me in my outlook on how my outdoors might appear to be. And so I thought of industries that will help me for a synthetic turf  to improve my outdoor. The idea is not only to meet my satisfaction for home beautification but I wish this might also help all my neighborhood. Maybe I can share this bright idea. But of course will have to make sure that turf installers are experienced enough. I know there are a lot of  the best direct installers around. In this present time, experts have been cropping up. And they'll help me realize what I've just envisioned to my home. :)


Shifting gear through K-12

While I think of today as my holiday off enjoying Philippine Independence day, I promise that I will not let my coming busy days pass by, not being able to divulge how I feel about the K-12 curriculum in my country.

I was a late bloomer. Everything about my life didn't come in fast pace as some of the people I once envied. My childhood days were perfectly smooth back when computer was yet borne to the heart of many. My teenage years were filled with happy memories, given the chances to meet wonderful people who are now living life their own apart from me. And of course, I must slowly learn to face reality in my younger years. Change, being the only constant thing in this world, taught me about life. My school days, almost half my entire life, were things I continue to cherish and be thankful for. Poverty didn't hinder my heroes (my parents) from letting us enjoy education. And though I have only a single page to say about lovelife, as part of growing up, I have but very few regrets, however, for this entry, I choose not to spoil.(which should have been even more interesting to read or know for some, instead of seriously focusing on K-12..well, lol).

Now, what is K-12 curriculum? The higher education simply said, "it's another best way to elevate the educational system of my country, in order for our learners to be even more globally competitive." As I believe that there is no aim borne without purpose, still I am confident that as educators, we are not being misled on this.  However, it is but a normal reaction that as human, we become at first hesitant to start anew. Sometimes we are so afraid to shift gear because we are already clouded with negative thoughts and emotions as to how this might be implemented and will even succeed without putting our learners' future at risk. Sometimes in life, we learn one thing at a time.. and for this- "just TRUST".

There is never a perfect first time. The first time you go to school as a child was scary, thinking you are out of your parent's pampering hands and sight.  The first time you take a test, might have filled you with fear, although hoping you will make it. Even the first time everyone of us fall in love, fear never left our sides. But as an old cliche said, "the biggest risk in life is not to risk at all", I think it's about time that we risk in order reach a certain goal.

This is not to dwell verbatim on K-12 curriculum per se mandated by our Department of Education, but this just to air my view why we must yield to a thing called "change". Everyone of us has the right to our own logical way of thinking. I still respect how parents and even educators thought of this curriculum more so of an additional load to struggling parents just to send their children to school. Or to us educators, knowing we are never sure how our ends for this might justify our means. But if we will not start today, then when?

For this 21st century, where everything around just seem perfectly a big competition, the feeling of survival of the fittest, and most of all the downfall of moral values everywhere, our learners need us today.

I say, other than feeling anxious about this K-12, I think the only biggest experiment that everybody may have been facing nowadays, where we continue to experiment, having no school --is Parenting. And so, it's about time, we help parents reaching their dreams for their children through K-12.

May God bless us all..

Ciao! Got to enjoy the holiday off now. Tomorrow is another day. :)

Get your Driver License Written Tests now!

I remember a friend once telling me her struggle on learning how to drive. It wasn't easy as thought, she said. As driving needs physical skill, it must also need enough knowledge about the do's and don'ts. Only that, in most part of the globe, you will need hundred pages to read  a dmv handbook  in order to pass the test. Having said that fact, in this busy world where almost everybody around has no longer enough  time to sit down to contemplate and read a hard-bound handbook, one will need to look for easy way out and yet learned still. 

How to simplify things? Not as complex as online courses offered to pass the driving test and not as expensive as it appears to be in order to learn perfectly well. In this fast pacing 21st century, we continue to keep ourselves abreast of what's latest and what time will likely save for us. If there's easy way to learn a thing, we normally grab the opportunity in order to save time and even money. The good thing about latest technology and us, virtual learners, is that we find means to meet our ends so that we continue to grow in different aspects in life. This is not a closure to old ways about learning with the help of hard-bound manuals or books but just an appraisal as we face trends that somehow in turn, help us to be competitive while the rest of the world is leading to the complexity of the present time.

As long as it will not do us harm, of course, we learn to swing with time.

Ciao! A blessed day!:)
