Make it or Break it. :'(

I am included in the list of those who will take the Removal Examination in Physiology A. :'(

I'm really sad and very depressed right now. I mean, this is my last chance. I'm under probation and if I don't pass this exam, I'm so out! Huhuhu. :'(

My friends who are on probation passed already and I'm the only one who will take the removals exam among us. :'(

What's wrong with me? I studied hard. I prayed harder. :'( It's like nothing is going my way. :'(

I really feel so down right now.

I asked God why. Why me? But then, I never lost faith in Him. I downloaded a podcast from VCF preachings and I know God is telling me something. He is telling me to be strong and courageous because He will never leave me. If this is His will, it will be done.

Now, I surrender all my life to Him, including this examination. I guess all I can do now is study hard and do my best.

I know this is not a FAILURE OF FAITH, but a TEST OF FAITH.

Lord, bless me with Your grace and wisdom. Be with me throughout this journey, and I'm confident enough to say that whatever happens, I know it's Your will that will prevail. Thank you for everything. I love You.

Lamon Friday

After our 3:30-6:00 pm class, my friends and I decided to go to Trinoma to eat our hearts out before hell week come. (It's our finals next week.) We ate at Giligan's. We don't have any photo because I don't have my camera with me and my other classmate who has one, forgot that she had it with her! Haha! :D

Then we satisfied our itching taste buds for sweets with a fro-yo after, in Red Mango.

I took a picture of my Berry Nutty Bliss with my low resolution cellphone camera.

I'm still craving for a fro-yo! Maybe I'll go to SM tomorrow for a white hat and buy some groceries for next week.

Need to study real hard! Have to pass all my subjects this sem or else I'm out! *knock-on-wood*

Good luck and God bless to all of us.

2012 - Doomsday?

The Mayans have this belief that on December 21, 2012 will be the end of the world. There was even a movie about it called 2012 which has a tagline of "We were warned".

A friend posted this on facebook:

"America, one of the most rich and powerful, lost thousands of lives last 09-11-01,
now Japan, one of the most rich and wise, lost thousands of lives last 03-10-11.
Add the dates:
  12-21-12 (December 21, 2012)
Coincidence or Destined?"

I was scared when I read it cause wow. It was really a coincidence that if you add those two dates, the sum would be that scary date.

Honestly, I don't know how they came up with that idea or belief. All I know is that God knows our future and He knows what's best for us. I mean, nobody can tell or predict the future except for Him. All we have to do is trust His will and have faith.

If 2012 really is the end of the world, then we just have to let God take over and bring us home, back to where we came from.

For now, let's live each day to the fullest, offer and surrender our lives to God and just be happy. =)

No worries! God is with us every single second of our life.

Wait! Before clicking the publish post, I suddenly remembered that the earthquake and tsunami that strucked Japan was last 03-11-11 and not 03-10-11! Haha! So nothing to worry about. I'll post it anyways for the effort. :D


What I ate today.

We had our major practicals in Gross Anatomy earlier this afternoon. Got 23 out of 30. Not bad huh? =) Before that, my friends and I went to SM Fairview to eat. Our tastebuds were begging for new tastes, aside from the usual food around here. Ugh! That's what I hate the most here. If you're living in a dormitory and you can't cook your own food, you have no choice but to eat the same food again and again. Tsk.

Last week, we also went to the mall just to eat. We ate at Gerry's then. This time, its Congo Grille. We were looking for restaurants which has group meals. Like in Gerry's, we ate  their group meal good for 4-5 people which costs Php999 and it was worth it. Congo Grille also has their group meals good for 5 people. We chose Set C consisting of Lumpia Rolls, Sinigang na Baboy, Chicken Bacolod, Laing, Leche Flan and Iced Tea. We ordered pork sisig as an additional.

Here are some pictures. Was not able to take much cause we were so hungry, we never minded to take photos of ourselves. Hahaha! :D

After our 4-5pm class, I went to Rustan's Supermarket in FCM to buy myself some stock food and water. I passed by the ice cream section then I noticed a familiar figure. That orange color, round little chocolate peanut butter cups that I love. REESE'S as an ice cream! Whoa! I have to buy one and taste it, I said to myself. Upon entering my dorm, I quickly snatched a spoon and opened the ice cream. Got a spoonful and put it in my increased salivary secretion mouth. The taste? BLAH! Not what I expected. I mean, it tastes like an ordinary milk chocolate ice cream which has bits of chocolate. I can't even taste the Reese's! I was so disappointed I felt guilty for my Php135 for it. Pfft! Oh well. :/

Need to study for our shifting exam tomorrow in Gross and finish my SGD. Good luck to us! =)

Japan 8.9 magnitude earthquake and tsunami 03-11-11

Oh my gosh! That's what I told myself after hearing the bad news. I was attending VCF youth service and my friends were texting me, informing me of what happened, and asking about my father. I quickly texted my mother and constantly called my father who is working in Japan. I was not able to reach him, then my mother replied that my father is alright and safe. Thank you Lord!

Earthquake is a common thing in Japan. I mean they were experiencing earthquakes almost every month so its a usual thing for them. But an 8.9 magnitude earthquake is really devastating, following a massive tsunami.

This is a picture of Japan before and after the disaster.

Here are some videos.

This is a raw video of the earthquake.

A huge whirlpool was formed after the earthquake. A boat was trapped near it.

The massive tsunami.

Japan, the whole world is praying for you. Get well soon. I love you. :'(

Thank you Lord my father is safe. Let's all just pray and trust His plans.

"I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world" -John 16:33
