Ako ay Pilipino Buong katapatang nanunumpa Sa watawat ng Pilipinas At sa bansang kanyang sinasagisag Na may dangal, katarungan at kalayaan Na pinakikilos ng sambayanang Maka-Diyos Maka-tao Makakalikasan at Makabansa.
I read the Yahoo news today about Obama showing the Filipino flag backwards during a summit
It was an “honest mistake”. But what does that mean ? Does anybody know why the filipino flag upside down means bad news to filipinos ? Do you ?
To the FilAms out there, I hope you know your roots. I hope you know the reasons why our flag is so important. You cant be proud of our race until you understand the meanings of our history. So learn a little. Maybe you’ll be surprised and gain more pride.
Coming back always makes me feel happy :]. I see the people who go to tennis and those who have the time to wait til 3 o’clock to be at school xD. I get good hugs ;]! They give REALLY good hugs XD. Hahaha. The teachers have not changed. They all just …. aged x]. But I cant say much cuz its only been a month and two weeks. Wowe.. so short but feels so long… Anyways, people welcome me with open arms there and i’m more than happy to come by to be with the Bethuners.
He has bad habits and he tends to do things that hes not supposed to (nothing wrong), but here, he just doesnt have anyone who can relate to him. I dont want to pity my grandpa, but the way my family treats him sometimes, Its hard for him to not have such a heavy load on him. He just wants to provide for the family. He just wants to see his grandchildren become something better. He works hard for us. In this economy, hes trying to look for a job. But for the first year and a half he was in America, he was going through trash everyday for recycables to have some source of money for us. And when he finally got his license and drove me to school, we would always talk about the Philippines. We would talk about going back together and meeting my cousins. Whats happened since we last saw them and all that. He would sound so happy when he talked about it. I can tell he misses home. But rite now, hes in America. Thinking of having some work so that he could have saved something for us, but is struggling just as much as everyone in the economy is.
I feel incomplete somehow. And with that, I feel insecure. Something feels like its missing and im frustrated because I dont know what it is. I look around with the people who are completely happy with their lives and i wonder how i can feel that way too. im shy because idk what to say. im awkward because i say things at wrong times. *sigh* i guess this is my phase of looking for myself.
My first week was good :]. I’ve defintely gotten the hang of the routes to get to my classes. And I’ve realized that during class that I should focus solely on my work x]. Socializing will take away all my ability to focus and I seriously want to do good in my classes xD. The socializing part has been a good and bad thing. Depending on how I look at it. Its good because I can do my work and no one copies me. Its bad because when its time to socialize, sometimes I’m alone. So it depends.
Today after school, I spent time with some of my close buddies at Gabby’s house :]. I missed them so much throughout the week! When I just chilled and relaxed with them, it made me feel more at ease. Its nice for us to just hang loose once in awhile. Plans for next week makes me hopeful :D!
It wasn’t how I expected it to be. My morning didnt start good. I got ready late, I looked like a mess, and I almost missed my bus. Wooh ~! I texted my Mom, Patricia, and Matthew the whole bus ride. I was soo nervous going to school, I needed support. When I got to school, I got my schedule and saw familiar faces on the way. First period, I was the first person there. I felt blank at first, but then I was like “wth”. We had a seating chart x].. My goodness. Second period, was all the way in the other side of school! Im gunna get a workout. It was ok too. Made me feel kinda dumb cuz I forgot everything I learned in Spanish x]. Third period, Art ! Wow its a big class x]. U get lotsa room. Fourth period, P.E. . BORING ! We just signed in for class then got to talk and chill for the rest of the period. Thats it. But lucky for me, Tron is there to kill my boredom ! Lunch, Riye ! Old friends are chilling together like old times xD ! Fifth, Bio. I sat rite in front and closest to the aisle. Makes me look like a teachers pet xD. I think its going to be my favorite subject x]. Sixth, English!! Funniest teacher I met so far ! Shes so kool :D ! Im glad I have her in the end of the day. Then I got books (9th grade literature book is HUGE!), made a new friend then went home :]. The End
