Approaching The End Of Semester 1

So yeah.. We are finally approaching the end of this semester. In short, our semester break is just a couple of days to go. YAHOOOOO! XD

Well, I'm not looking forward to see my failing grades though. lol. But heck, I so want to get a BREAK from school. tsktsk. haha. AND we're going to Nadi next week, after our exams. Spell vacation okay. lol. HAHAHA. Man, it's gonna be my second time (make it third including the time we arrived here, in the airport) in Nadi. It's in the western part of Fiji, so we hardly go there. HAHA. But well, maybe in the coming weeks or even months, we can go there more often because we have a house there. In fact, dad and kuya is already there because of my dad's project. Hehe.

Anyhow, this blog post is just for some updates. Nyaha. I can't wait for the semester ends! And I really don't care much about my failing marks because I don't feel like studying anymore, unless they send us back to the Philippines. HA-HA! Yeah, I would just like to continue my studies in Phils. But I don't think my parents would like the idea.

If ever I will be given the chance to study in USP again, I would definitely study hard now. I said 'if ever given the chance' because I don't know how my parents will take my failing marks! lol. Gee, I hate Foundation. I have another option though, if I could transfer to Institute of Technology Australia, it would be nice. Coz I don't have to study Foundation anymore. Foundation is like High School in University. Dang, I had my MAF11 exam a while ago, and I was seriously BRAINDEAD! tsk. In Tagalog, "bokya". HAHAHA! It was more on Trigonometry and Polar whatever. My goodness, I loathe it so much! Grr. So yeah, I would obviously fail that awful subject. lol. Going back, yup, I am planning to transfer to IOTA. I think it's better though it's just a very small school. It's actually just a support centre coz the main is in Aussie. Hehe. But talking about the educational standard, it's better. Hehe. Hello, Australia right?

So yeah. I don't know. haha. Oh well.. Just made an update that Semester 1 is nearing to an END. I'll be going to a vacation. HAHA. But aside from that, I still have to do a lot of things. Hehe. Talk about my future business! haha. XD

Till next time,

God Sees Everything

I've been a Christian since I was 6 years old. Pretty long huh? Because of that I grew up in Sunday School. I'm 19 now, and I've been through a lot of trials in life. I don't regret them because I know God planned it to happen so that those experiences would teach me something and would help me be a better Christian standing firm in His Word.

I've backslidden once. I've turned away from God when I was in High School. That time of my life was too busy that I seldom go to church and have forgotten my roles as an Ambassador for Him.

Here I am now in Fiji. And God is really Great. He's been doing marvelous things in my life. He knew what I've been through so now I experience blessings. But He still gives me trials to mold me.

As I was going through the net a while ago, I've found this new site where we can upload sermons. Hmm, maybe I can upload soon. Hehe. In today's busy world, some people can't go to church. I myself, aside from regularly attending church, sometimes watch sermons online if I believe that God would speak through it, He always does anyway right?

I was in an outreach this morning and we went to a settlement, a place where poverty prevails. It touched my heart. I might not be able to give them something because I am still young and don't have much but I can share to them the Greatest Treasure in Life, and that is Jesus Christ. God sent His Son into the world to save us. What a great opportunity for Christians to share the Good News!

The poor people lose hope in God because they think that if God provides and blesses people, how come they are in that state. Maybe they feel God has forgotten them because they are not blessed with material things. While the rich people, in the contrary, forgot about God because they think they have the 'security'.

Either way, God surely sees everything. He know the trials we are facing and He will surely bless us in His time. Let us remember that our time is different from His time and His is always the right one.

The Internet is a very huge marketplace. We can find anything online. I've learned from a preaching before that there are more people who visit pornographic sites. Can't we use the Internet for the glory of God too? I could say I'm such an Internet freak but this is what I do, I blog about Him. So why don't we watch sermons online instead of browsing sites that would just harm us? Again, God sees everything. So what do you do on the Internet? Head on to now.

Sleep: A Necessity, Not a Luxury

I always surf the net. In fact, almost every time as long as I am awake. I even surf the net more than I study. Am I studying anyway? lol. Oh well. Maybe this is the Internet lifestyle. Internet freak! lol. XD

Mom gave me an article about Sleep: A Necessity, Not a Luxury. Yes, she printed it out. haha. She told me to read it very well. Then give it to April. lol.

Here's the news from Yahoo:

The longer-term effects of sleep deprivation involve a person's health. Doctors have linked lack of sleep to weight gain, diabetes, high blood pressure, heart problems, depression and substance abuse.
Okay, I get it. HAHAHA. Do I need to say more?

On the other hand, there are people who are suffering from sleep disorders. These disorders include:

  • Insomnia, an inability to go to sleep or stay asleep.
  • Sleep apnea, or breathing interruptions during sleep that cause people to wake up repeatedly.
  • Restless legs syndrome, a tingling or prickly sensation in the legs that causes a person to need to move them, interrupting sleep.
I am insomiac. I just can't go to sleep that fast. So instead of forcing myself to sleep, I just surf the net. lol. HAHAHA. OMG. I experience that Sleep Apnea thing. So, that's why! tsktsk. =|

Mom is right. I need MORE sleep!

I hope to get normal sleep very soon. Well actually, I do get around 8 hours of sleep a day naman. Just not at night. HAHA. I like sleeping in the morning till afternoon than at night. XD

I catch my friends online. Hehe. Coz Fiji is like 4 hours ahead of Phils! So yeah. And it's more quiet at night. I can study. As if. lol. And since most people are sleeping, the broadband connection is damn FAST! Hahahaha! XD

Well, I hope you guys get enough sleep though!

Till next time,

The Land of My Suffering

Okay, does it sound so mean? lol. Just read on. =p

I've been here in Fiji for more than a year now. But until now, I still feel like a stranger in a foreign land. I guess, nothing really beats home. I just so miss life in the Philippines, man. tsktsk.

So many times I've heard my friends telling me to just consider this place a 'wilderness' where God will help me to grow and be fruitful, just like the story of Joseph. That's right. I really did grow up. I'm now one year older. I was 18 years old when I got here and now I'm 19! LOL. Hahaha. Kidding aside, yes, I grew up in faith. I could say my faith and trust in Him is much stronger than ever before. I've experienced a lot, and I've learned a lot. Do I have to enumerate it? haha.

First, the family's relationship is way, way, way better than before. I know it's a bit mushy. HAHA. But well, there are really things that cannot be forgotten. Until now, when I think of them, it still hurts. I know I should let go and let God. But sometimes, I just can't. Who to blame? My childhood was just traumatic. lol. But yeah, although I'm so dying to go back to my home country, I still thank God for this chance to be with the family. I am nearing a marrying age, you know. LOL. Hahaha! Geez, I don't even have a boyfriend. lmao.

I know why my parents don't want us to go back. Not because of the Philippine's economy or whatever. It's because we are all getting older. We might not get another chance to be together. For the eighteen years of my life, we've never had this chance as a family. Ekk. HAHAHA. I mean, yeah, we had been together naman. But not like this. Like before, if we're together, it's not really REAL. Ahh, whatever. Basta! Haha!

Second, I fell in love with God even more! Hehe. I am faithful than ever before. Although I don't have much friends in church, it didn't make us backslide. lol. It's all about Him anyway. My sister and I are in the ministry. There's great joy in serving God. But it just suck lately coz sometimes we miss outreaches coz of school stuffs. tsktsk. But I know God understands. So yeah, if not for Fiji, I wouldn't be closer to Him. I just need to stay focused. Coz there are times that I think I'll be more effective serving Him if I would be in the Philippines. There are just so many ways to serve Him way back home. There's Jzone, there's Project S.C.H.O.O.L., etc... It's sometimes hard to deal with people where you can experience a culture clash. So there, I NEED to fully accept than I am in the RIGHT PLACE at the RIGHT TIME. Sometimes, when there are conflicts, I wanted to give up. I wanted to think I'm not supposed to be here. It sucks.

So yeah. I've patched things up with God when I got here. And I don't wanna slip away again. It's a real blessing!

Third, I love my friends here. I don't care if I can count to my fingers how many friends I have here. I don't need a lot of stones, I just need precious diamonds. Sweeeet. lol. haha. Well if you guys have been reading all my blogs, you probably know that I have really few friends here. tsktsk. HAHA. That's the one thing I hate. I really feel like a STRANGER in FOREIGN LAND. Some where really friendly when we were new. Now, I don't know. They're gone. lol. I know I'm not unfriendly, I have lots of friends in the Phils. lol. Oh well. God is burdening our hearts. I have to admit, I miss them. haha.

Anyways, yeah. I love my friends here. I will miss them big time! Specially the friend (Yes, FRIEND as in singular.. lol) who is always there. The friend whom we always hang out with. haha.

Lastly, I've grown up. Although am still childish at times. HAHA. I've learned a lot now. Poor me, I have to be a cast away first before realizing everything. What a pity it is that I have to experienced all these pains and sufferings before learning these things I've already encountered in the past. But hey, that's why they are called EXPERIENCES, right? The best teacher (aside from God) is EXPERIENCE. haha. I know there are still things that I need to let go. I'm fully aware of that. I still struggle in some things. I just need more time, I guess.

There you go. haha. This place is the land of my suffering, but this is also a LAND of BLESSINGS! It might be too early to quote this, but I think this is also a right time:

"God has made me fruitful in the land of my suffering."
-Genesis 41:52

Even if I still have almost 2 years to stay (unless we'd go home soon) and there will be more things to come along, I can say God has made me fruitful now. And I know He will make me more fruitful in the near future. I pray that He would always use me to His Greatness. Just keep on praying for me, guys! Hehe. Although I stand firm, I'm still prone to sin. lol.

We all have a purpose in life. And our main purpose here on Earth is to serve our Heavenly Dad. I hope you guys also know that. =]

Till next time
