That Thing Called #SELF-CONFIDENCE

When I was still, I always have that fear within me. I am so afraid of many things. I am afraid to face people, I am afraid to enter to the faculty room of my professors during college days, I am afraid to face the entire class when making a report, I even on the brink of dropping my Internship Subject or Student Teaching because I m not so sure if I could make it.

When time goes by, as I already held a teaching position in my dear Alma mater, I somehow manage to overcome my fear. I was able to face my students without shaking my knees (unlike the first day of duty as a teacher). In fact, I already manage my insecurities when I had my last minute teaching-demo. My profession taught me to be strong and, well, confident so to speak. However, when I was already in public secondary school I realized I haven't fully overcome my fear yet! I have fear in facing those in higher authorities. I have fear in being observed while having my class. Another fear was when I was given the task to take the lead in one of our school activities. I'd rather be asked to make certificates, tarpaulins and any other task than taking those bigger leading roles. 

Then I realized again, I think I need more dose of Self-confidence.

Perfect Gift Ideas for Christmas

In few weeks time, it's going to be Christmas, my favorite season of the year. I just love the feeling of playing the role of Santa Claus for my family. It's already been my tradition to give gifts even if I have no gifts in return. 

For this year, I want to be different. Last year, I gave ready-to-wear apparels. This year, since most of my nieces and nephew are on the Secondary School, I will be giving them school items. I already have gift ideas from the internet and one of the items that I love to have and to give is The Cutey Pen at PenFactory.com take note, it's not just like your ordinary pen. One of my favorite among their pen products is the CandleWood (with image below). It's a metallic pen with ribbed gripper and it comes in various colors. Aside from the fact that it is colorful, it is also very affordable at 0.35 USD each. For US residents, there will be free shipping for order above 100USD. This can be a good business ideas too specially for those who are into school supplies retailing. 

So, I have now perfect gift ideas, all I have to do is to save money for the said purpose.

Merry Christmas!

That Paranormal Thing...

Comes Halloween, all you can see on TV shows are horror-themed and frightening movies. But what was really the essence of this All-Souls and All-Saints celebration? Is it really necessary to unearth the memories of those who are already dead through this paranormal activities?

I respect those who believe in this "scary activities" or how may you call it. But as for me, and I will stand firm on this: After we die, we will all face judgment. There's no way we can return on this earth as scary-looking creature.

just saying.

Preparing Videos to be Shared with the Movavi Video Converter

Sharing videos has become commonplace nowadays, whether it is the short clips that you see on Instagram, to the longer ones on Facebook and YouTube. The rise of multiple different online video sharing platforms has made it ever so convenient for people to share their videos with their friends and family – or even with the rest of the world.

Of course, despite how many options there are the one problem you may still encounter is preparing your videos to be shared. Most video sharing platforms tend to accept multiple formats and video settings – but at the same time they recommend certain set ups to ensure that the videos are displayed ‘optimally’. In short if you want to be certain that your display is going to appear the way that you want it to – you need to prepare it in advance.

To do this, you should use the Movavi Video Converter. It is capable of converting video formats as well as adjusting their settings – including the resolution, aspect ratio, bitrate, and much more. Essentially it will let you convert your video into the optimal format and settings for video sharing websites – which is exactly what you need.

The best part about the Movavi Video Converter however is the fact that it is incredibly easy to use. If terms like ‘bitrate’, ‘resolution’ and ‘aspect ratio’ all sound a bit alien to you – don’t worry. All you need to do is select the video sharing platform that you want to use from the hundreds of presets that are available, and the settings will be taken care of automatically.



If you’d like to see an example of the few simple steps to convert videos from MP4 to WMV, just head over to: http://www.movavi.com/support/how-to/how-to-convert-mp4-to-wmv.html

Alongside helping you convert and optimize your video, you can also use the software to edit it and enhance the video quality, cut and combine video segments to get rid of unwanted footage, crop or rotate the video, and even add customizable text as captions, titles, subtitles or watermarks.

By putting to use the features in the Movavi Video Converter, you will be able to prepare your videos so that when you do share them you can rest easy knowing that they will look perfect. Give it a try and see for yourself how intuitive and natural it feels to use it. Odds are it won’t take you more than a few minutes to familiarize yourself with its interface and start using it as if you were an old hand.

Where Am I Heading To?


I've been noticing for quite sometime now that I have some spiritual hang-ups. I even forgot the last time that I actually scan my Bible (not the android app). Though, am not saying that I am backsliding, I just have this so called "spiritual gaps". I haven't lost my real identity, I am just in complete hiatus in doing those tings that I ought to do in order to strengthen my spiritual life. No wonder I easily lost my temper, I have low patience and low tolerance in things that could possibly upset me. Good thing is that, I am still completely aware that what I have been doing and feeling lately is not right anymore.

Nevertheless, I am still thankful that God has always His way of reminding me to go back to the highway of righteousness.

My Passion for Teaching

If there's one thing that I want to thank God with as of this very moment, it is Him giving me all the opportunities to become a teacher. I am hesitant at first to live this profession simply because I do not have that so called "self-confidence" but good thing I am surrounded with people who encourages me to pursue my teaching career.

Without knowing it, I am already in the world of academe for more than a decade! Those years of experiences molded me to become what I am right now-more mature and a little bit more confident.

I learned a lot of lessons as a teacher. I learn the value of perseverance, patience and a little more patience. My students have different stories of their lives to tell. There are those who seems to be deprived with the best in life and there are those who are in abundance. I just love the feeling of having an extended family in school. I love the feeling of being look up to by my students. I love the feeling of being trusted and loved by them. Though sometimes, I have the tendency to carry on their "emotional baggage" at home, I have the tendency as well to broke down in front of my students, but that was me, and they love and accept me for what I am. I am just being honest with my feelings because they taught me so. I also made it a point not to judge them. I do believe that every student has a potential that is just waiting to be discovered. I tried to push them to their limit until they have shown to me the things that they are capable of doing. Indeed, being a teacher is not just a walk in the park, as others were saying; it is a lifelong journey and discovery about life. Teaching is a vocation and not just another profession.



As the old adage goes, teaching is the noblest profession. 

I am proud to be one!

Am not sure when she will set foot here in the Philippines again. 

It just sink in that I do miss her... Her embrace... her motherly love.

Hope she will have the best days of her life there...

Long Live Philippines!

While browsing some images on Google site, I stumbled upon this one particular picture that awakens my patriotism to my beloved country, Philippines. 


The mere sight of it makes me wanna go on time travel where contentment, unity, and simple but happy lifestyle is in the heart of every Filipino. And since I really love this pic, courtesy of Google images of course, I made this as background on the certificate I've made for the Cultural night in our local barangay.

She's Leaving on an Airplane....

♫ I'm leaving on an airplane... don't know when I'll be back again... ♪


Yes, she'll be leaving tomorrow and this separation anxiety somehow overwhelms me. This is the woman who have pushed me to the top, to be where I am right now. She disappoint me, inspire me, nag at me, cared that much for me... she's everything. She's my Mom and I love her very much. I know she will be happier for she will be reunited with my other sisters in US.. Hopefully, she will have the best days of her life. This is the fulfillment of her dream and I have no enough power to give her such this kind of opportunity.

Progress and Innovation



Over the years, the lives of millions of people have improved because of progress and innovations that have been made in buildings. It has made the world a better place to live. A large variety of homes has been constructed that have provided people a safe and comfortable building in which to be. Businesses have become more productive over the years as well. As improvements have happened, life gets better.

Appliance Improvements

Homes have received numerous changes within the last 50 years. While many homes have received renovations, updates and improvements, such as kitchens and bathrooms, there have been noticeable changes. One of the biggest ones is the large and small appliances that are used on a daily basis. Although the style and design of many have changed, many function the same way. However, many large and small appliances are energy efficient. Therefore, when appliances that are energy efficiently are in use, each one does not use as much energy as compared with older models. Energy bills can be much lower as a result of appliances that are energy efficient. Air conditioners and heaters have become much more efficient. After all, each work works to heat or cool a home or business, but the money that it costs to operate each one is lower as compared with older ones that still operate.


Construction Improvements

Technology and human understanding has progressed significantly. What was thought to be impossible a few years ago is now possible because of technological breakthroughs. Therefore, businesses and homes are much more efficient. Building material that is used to construct and office or home are constructed in ways that allow facilities to last longer. Materials like steel tubes, drywall, wooden beams and other similar supplies function well to keep a building working efficiently on a daily basis. In fact, many people take it for granted that a building should run efficiently as a result of the construction improvements that have been made. 

Companies, contractors, engineers, scientists and many other individuals have made important contributions that result in quality products being made available for new projects being done all over the world. Although there is a cost for quality products, the money spent can be absolutely worth it. A quality building can provide people with the peace of mind they need in order to be effective citizens living in countless communities in the world today.

Blissful @ 34!

It's my 34th Birthday and I truly had a blast starting with the surprise party given to me by my former advisory. 

I am deeply touched by my student's thoughtfulness. These bunch of ''kids'' can either make or break your day. They can be rude at times, they can be seems irresponsible, immature BUT they have this tendencies to melt your heart, to make you cry, to make you feel special.

These bunch of ''kids'' are just kids who maybe deprived with so many things in life yet they manage to stand and stay strong. Their behavior may seems unruly but when you try to get into their heart, there you can find an ailing soul, a broken heart, a disturbed spirit.

These are the bunch of ''kids'' who needs more understanding, more patience and more unconditional love...

If you try to get to know them better you might see what I saw in them, and you might feel what I felt for them.

That is why I love them very much and I am so proud to say that somehow my love for them was equally reciprocated, not just for today but everyday.

AND YES, I consider them as "kids" because they need more guidance.

To them, thank you for making my day!

Organization Works to Help Abused Children

Recently, news from Bob Parsons GoDaddy founder, reported that the foundation he and his wife operated, the Bob and Renee Parsons Foundation, had donated to an organization that few people may have heard of, but one they found to be critical to healing those who had been abused. The Free Arts for Abused Children of Arizona organization helps heal homeless and abused children through artistic expression.

History of Organization

In 1993, Elda Unger and Margaret Beresford, both art therapists, met to discuss a program that Ms. Unger had founded in California. The program, Free Arts for Abused Children, used creative arts as a tool for healing in children who had been abused. Ms. Beresford, along with Stephanie Small, who became the Executive Director of the Arizona program, gathered others who with a passion for the arts as well as healing and children. With an initial $30,000 budget and five volunteers, the program began with 60 children, the two women launched the Arizona program.

Significant Growth

Since that small beginning, Free Arts for Abused Children in Arizona has grown to 13 paid staff members, more than 550 volunteers and a budget of more than $1 million. More than 8,000 children receive therapy through four core programs. In 2015, the organization was awarded the National Society of Arts and Letters Arts Advocacy Award. In 2011, they were given the Governor’s Arts Community Award and named the Arts Organization of the Year by the Arts and Business Council of Greater Phoenix. They are the only group to win that award twice and is the only non-profit organization in Arizona to bring therapeutic creative arts programs to homeless and abused children.

Benefits of Art Therapy

The creative process required in artistic self-expression can help individuals physically, emotionally and mentally. In addition, art therapy has been used to resolve conflicts, develop interpersonal skills, reduce stress and manage behavior. There have been studies conducted that indicate that art heals by changing attitudes and physiology. As the individual expresses themselves through art, their physiology changes. They become more relaxed, less fearful and more in control. Science has shown that art and music can change brain wave patterns, affect the autonomic nervous system and balance hormones. Children, in particular, respond well to art therapy as it helps them with problem-solving skills and increases cognitive ability. Students who are exposed to art classes in school are often more successful academically in some areas of math and reading.

Group Therapy

In addition to individual therapy, the organization also promotes community-based art programs to provide socialization to those who may be isolated. These community programs provide an outlet for those who need to work through every day problems without feelings of judgement. For lower income children, art offers them the ability to express themselves while also increasing positive relationships with adults, developing motivation and helping them create their own identity.

Free Arts for Abused Children in Arizona’s core values are that art heals, that every child matters and that mentoring works. They believe that creative arts transform lives, that children have every right to be respected and cared for. They also believe that mentoring builds self-esteem, social skills, trust and the ability to express feelings in a positive way. Their vision is to be the premier resource for healing children through art.

In the Arms of the Almighty

As a College Instructor for almost a decade now, I met lots of students with different personalities. There were those students who leaves a lasting imprints in your life, those who made , in one way or another, a difference that somehow made me, as  teacher, to become more humble and genuine. 

I do learn a lot from my students. I gained much lessons in life from them. It's varied but somehow unique in their own little way.

That is why, when one of my best students passed away, I really can't help but cry. It's a great loss but knowing the fact that he is already at peace in heaven, it lightens the burden within us, somehow though at the back of our mind we could only hope and pray and wish he could stay a little bit longer. But again, it was written in the Bible, Many are the plans of man but it is the plans of GOD that SHALL prevail.

To you, Jake, thank you for making a difference in our lives. We'll surely miss you and your unique but awesome personality.

Enjoy your day with the Lord always.

Rest in peace.

That Thing Called PERSEVERANCE

Things are getting complicated lately, so does my responsibilities as a teacher, a mother, a wife, and a blogger! Honestly, with so many things in my mind, and so many tasks to be done, I am quite confused how to begin and what should come first. Of course, you might say, as a Mom and a wife, my family should be on top of my priority. As the breadwinner, I might say, I should prioritize my job. Well, by strength coming from God, I was amazed how I could get things done simultaneously.

Maybe because PERSEVERANCE is the key. For me, I could define this word as doing things slowly yet surely. God never failed to amaze me with the strength and wisdom that He bestowed upon me. He is simply amazing

Ensuring Your Safety and Working Better with Quality Equipment

A job that requires you to cut into very hard materials can be dangerous if you do not have the right tools for this work. Tools made from poor quality materials can slip and cut you, leaving you seriously injured or maimed. Rather than bank your safety on parts made from materials that you may question, you may fare better to choose those that have tested and approved parts like carbide core bits. These components allow you to carry out your work without fearing that you will somehow get hurt or permanently injured during your workday.

When you want to make it your priority to have these parts on hand, you may wonder where you can find the most thorough selection available to consumers like you. You may be unable to find a local dealer in your area that has such components on hand. Instead of looking at local dealers, you may find it better to shop online through this website. The site is set up so that you can check out the parts you need and understand the level of quality that comes with them. You can also learn about why it could pay to have access to such elements for your tools.

If you work with both wet and dry materials during a typical workday, it also may save you time and money to invest in components that are suited for both types of materials. Rather than switch bits repeatedly during a shift, it may serve you better to have a single part that can stay in your tool and be used regardless of the material into which you are cutting. You could find such a part when you shop online. 

If you need resources and tools for more than just cutting into concrete or tile, you likewise can use this website to filter your search for other work items as well. You can find demolition tools, tools for sawing, and more using the links on the left of the page. If you or your company prefer one brand over another, you can also filter your search using the manufacturer link at the top. Staying on budget may also be a priority for you. You can find sale items available on the website. These discounted items let you save money on the tools that you need to work safer.
