Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.

Life is a duty, complete it.

Life is a game, play it.

Life is a promise, fulfill it.

Life is a song, sing it.

Life is a struggle, accept it.

Life is a tragedy, confront it.

Life is an adventure, dare it.

Dreams do come TRUE!

A year ago I was really dreaming to be the student with the highest WPA.
I even wrote a note in my closet, and it is still posted there. The note says "Highest WPA". Every morning I read it and it motivates me to do good and reach that big dream. After the first semester, I received my grades and found out that I was qualified in the first honors list. That time I was excited because I thought I got the highest WPA. However, when I asked my friend Mike what was his WPA, I knew that I can't be what I dream anymore. He has a WPA higher than mine. After that, I did not long for the position anymore. Although I dream to have it still but craving no more. Just this day, I realized more that God is faithful and answers prayers. I realized MORE that HIS ways are different from my ways. During the CS Orientation Day, surprisingly, I was called infront to receive an award from ARETE (Ateneans Reaching Towards Excellence). And guess what, I was awarded as the student with the HIGHEST WPA for the 1st and 2nd semester in the Computer Studies divison. I was shocked but happy. I realized that my prayer, my dream was faithfully answered by God. I am very happy. God failed me not. And I know he never will. Prayers are very powerful. They may not come instantly. Theymay not seem to be what we think. But they happen. They DO COME TRUE!

CS Orientation Day: A BIG SUCCESS

June 27 -- The CS Orientation Day has just been concluded. I am very happy that all our efforts have paid off. I really thank God for the big success of the event. Many came--CS and some non-CS students, faculty members and staff and the invited guests. The event was really intended for the first year students for them to be acquainted with the division, teachers, higher year students, and the faculty. But of course, the orientation was not solely for talks and information but also for entertainment and fun. The set up and design of the place was really fantastic. I can say we really did a good job. We had lights, CDs, backdrops, and created a disco ambiance (though it really didn't look like a disco house but we tried and made a CS-disco house version :) ) . I was satisfied of the stage design. Thanks to Sir Rikki for letting us borrow the stage lights. It did help to make the event fantastic. The music was OK. The hosts were great. And the performers were awesome. But most of all, the students were very active. The CS Orientation Day is a BIG SUCCESS. Kudos to the officers and volunteers and especially to our dear CS Representative, Kristine Reyes. :)

On Death Scenes

Yesterday night I saw a death scene in a TV program. As usual I was moved to tears. But because of having a class now in Philosophy, I asked myself why I cry when I see death scenes. There were several answers that popped into my mind. Not being defensive or anything, but I think I cried for reasons that are totally acceptable and not just because I am a cry-baby. I realized that I cried because I pity the person (not the dead). For me, there is no more painful event that could ever happen than a death of a loved one. And that leads me to my next point. I cry because I am so afraid that I would be on a death scene someday. Inevitable it is, but if it I can lengthen the life of a loved one, I would surely do it. Or better die first than see them lying peacefully in a coffin. I don't hate death, and not even trying to escape from it. I just want a longer life for my family, friends and loved ones. I don't want to experience death of a loved one at this young age. I want to spend a longer time with them and do things that I could treasure forever even after death. Funny it may sound but I close my eyes whenever I pass by a funeral home; I don't want to see the coffins, the flowers, the lights and the sad people. Death is a part of life. No one even me can't escape from it. I accept that. I really do. Just don't want it now. Not yet.

True Wisdom by Fr. Moga

The search for wisdom has been part of the human life. History would show us how the wise men gave reasons on the every circumstance, phenomenon etc etc. But what really is true wisdom? True wisdom is not merely a matter of a high mental capacity. It is neither a mere factual knowledge nor a knowledge which is connected with a particular human skill. Wisdom is more than these. Fr. Michael D. Morga SJ presents us with ten various descriptions of wisdom.

1. Wisdom as sensitivity for mystery.
2. Wisdom as the Knowledge of the Ultimate Reasons or Causes.
3. Wisdom as the Sense of the Overall Goal of Human Life.
4. Wisdom as Sensitivity for Human Life.
5. Wisdom as a Broad View of Things.
6. Wisdom as Good Judgment.
7. Wisdom as a Living in terms of the Religious Dimensions of Life.
8. Wisdom as Knowing How to be Happy.
9. Wisdom as a Living in terms of What is Truly Important.
10. Wisdom as Living in Tune with a Greater Reality.

Wisdom itself refuses to be defined, thus, people can only give descriptions to what wisdom is all about. Defining wisdom is like constraining it, putting limits and boundaries. However, wisdom is an open system, you can describe it the way you see it but still be based on logical reasoning.

Celtics DUMPED Lakers by a 39 point lead

BOSTON (AP) -- With Russell and Havlicek sitting courtside, and Red surely lighting up a victory cigar somewhere, these Boston Celtics returned to glory like the great teams before them.

Dominant in every way.

On a new parquet floor below aging championship banners hung in the rafters two decades back, the Celtics won their 17th NBA title and a first one -- at last -- for Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen -- their Big Three for a new generation. After 22 long years, the NBA has gone green. Lifted by ear-splitting chants of "Beat L.A." early and cries of "Seven-teen" in the closing seconds by their adoring crowd, the Celtics concluded a shocking rebound of a season with a stunning 131-92 blowout over the Los Angeles Lakers in Game 6 on Tuesday night.

"It means so much more because these are the guys, the Havliceks, the Bill Russells, the Cousys," Pierce said. "These guys started what's going on with those banners. They don't hang up any other banners but championship ones.

"And now I'm a part of it."

With the outcome assured, Boston fans sang into the night as if they were in a pub on nearby Canal Street. They serenaded the newest champs in this city of champs, and taunted Kobe Bryant and his Lakers, who drowned in a green-and-white wave for 48 minutes.Garnett scored 26 points with 14 rebounds, Allen scored 26 and Pierce, the Finals MVP who shook off a sprained right knee sustained in Game 1, added 17 as the Celtics, a 24-win team a year ago, wrapped up their first title since 1986.Rajon Rondo had 21 points, eight assists, seven rebounds and six steals as the Celtics, who built a 23-point halftime lead and obliterated the Lakers, who were trying to become the first team to overcome a 3-1 deficit in the Finals.They didn't stand a chance.

Boston's 39-point win surpassed the NBA record for the biggest margin of victory in a championship clincher; the Celtics beat the Lakers 129-96 in Game 5 of the 1965 NBA Finals.In the final minute, Pierce doused Celtics coach Doc Rivers with red Gatorade. Owner Wyc Grousbeck, who named his group Banner 17 to leave no doubt about his goal, put an unlit cigar in his mouth -- a tribute to Auerbach, the patriarch who had a hand in the franchise's first 16 titles.Garnett dropped to the parquet and kissed the leprechaun at center court and then found Russell, the Hall of Famer who taught him the Celtic way, for a long embrace."I got my own. I got my own," Garnett said. "I hope we made you proud.""You sure did," Russell said.

Rivers pulled Pierce, Garnett and Allen with 4:01 left and they shared a group hug with their coach, who was nearly run out of town last season. Rivers lost his father at the beginning of this remarkable run, a season no one expected.By the time Rivers was handed the Larry O'Brien Trophy, it was June 18 -- his late father's birthday.When the game clock reached zeros, Rivers reflected on his dad."My first thought was what would my dad say," Rivers said, "and honestly I started laughing because I thought he would probably say, if you knew my dad, 'It's about time. What have you been waiting for?'"It's was Boston's first title since the passing of Auerbach, whose presence was the only thing missing on this night. Even Auerbach, who died in 2006, got some satisfaction. Led by Rivers, Auerbach's beloved team denied Lakers coach Phil Jackson from overtaking him with a 10th championship.

The Boston-Los Angeles rivalry, nothing more than black-and-white footage from the 60s and TV highlights of players wearing short shorts in the 80s to young hoops fans, remains tilted toward the Atlantic Ocean. The Celtics are 9-2 against the Lakers in the Finals.Boston missed its first crack at closing out the series in Game 5, but the Celtics didn't miss on their second swing, running the Lakers out of the gym.Bryant, the regular season MVP, finished with 22 points on 7-of-22 shooting.He started 4-of-5 from the field and seemed intent on forcing a Game 7. But he missed seven shots in a row and everywhere he went, L.A.'s No. 24 ran smack into a wall of Boston defense as high as the Green Monster."They were definitely the best defense I've seen the entire playoffs," Bryant said. "I've seen some pretty stiff ones and this was right up there with them. The goal was to win a championship, it wasn't to win MVP or anything like that, it was to win a championship."

Garnett and Allen were All-Stars in other cities, stuck in Minnesota and Seattle, respectively, on teams going nowhere. But brought together in trades last summer by Celtics general manager Danny Ainge, a member of the '86 Celtics champions, they joined Pierce and formed an unbreakable bond, a trio as tight as the club's lucky shamrock logo.They resisted being called The Big Three, a nickname given to Larry Bird, Kevin McHale and Robert Parish two decades ago."This is the reason we came here," Garnett said. "This is the reason we got together, and Danny made it go down. This is it right now."With Garnett scoring 17 points and Pierce adding 10, Boston built a 58-35 halftime lead, and unlike Game 2 when they let the Lakers trim a 24-point lead to two in the fourth quarter before recovering, the Celtics never stopped.They pushed their lead to 31 in the third, and with Boston still up by 29 after three, plastic sheets started going up in the Celtics' locker room in preparation for a champagne celebration.No team had to work harder for a championship than these Celtics, who were playing in their record 26th postseason game after being pushed to seven games by Atlanta and Cleveland before taking care of Detroit in six to win the Eastern Conference title.They entered Game 6 slowed by injuries as Pierce, Kendrick Perkins (shoulder) and Rondo (ankle) were less than 100 percent. There was also uncertainty surrounding Allen, who stayed behind in Los Angeles following Game 5 after his youngest son became ill and was diagnosed with diabetes. The Celtics needed three planes to get back from L.A. and didn't get home until late Monday night.But there were no excuses, and just as they had while winning 66 games during the regular season, the Celtics got plenty of help from their bench as P.J. Brown, James Posey, Leon Powe and rookie Glen "Big Baby" Davis came in and contributed.It was a group effort by this gang in green, which bonded behind Rivers, who borrowed an African word ubuntu (pronounced Ooh-BOON-too) and roughly means "I am, because we are" in English, as the Celtics' unifying team motto.The Celtics gave the Lakers a 12-minute crash course of ubuntu in the second quarter.Boston outscored Los Angeles 34-19, getting 11 field goals on 11 assists. The Celtics toyed with the Lakers, outworking the Western Conference's best inside and out and showing the same kind of heart that made Boston the center of pro basketball's universe in the '60s.House and Posey made 3-pointers to put the Celtics ahead by 12 points and baskets by Pierce, Garnett and Rondo put Boston ahead by 18.In the final minute, Garnett floated in the lane, banked in a one-handed runner and was fouled. His free throw made it 56-35, and after Perkins scored, the Celtics ran to the locker room leading by 23.On his way off the floor, Garnett screamed, "That's that."And so it was.Game notes
The Lakers had won their previous eight straight Game 6s in the Finals. ... Since the Finals began in 1947, 16 have gone seven games, the most recent in 2005 when San Antonio had to go the distance to beat Detroit. ... It was the second biggest margin in Finals history behind Chicago's 96-54 win over Utah in 1998. ... The Celtics went 48-7 at home, including 13-1 in the postseason.

Get Low

Read 1Peter 5:5-11
You know you're having a bad day when... Your horn sticks on the freeway, while you're behind 32 Hell's Angels motorcyclists. Your twin sister forgets your birthday. You call your wife and tell her that you'd like to eat tonight, and when you get home you find a sandwich on the front porch.

Can you relate to these humbling scenarios? When little embarrassments happen, we may think God wants to humble me. Joking aside, that's not what the Bible teaches. God certainly can humble us. Daniel 4:37 says, "Those who walk in pride he is able to humble." Surprisingly, God doesn't want to humble us; He wants us to humble ourselves.

1Peter 5:6 says, "Humble yourselves...under the mighty hand of God." God wants us to choose actions that will produce humility in us. Humility isn't something you feel, it's something you do. When we promote or overly protect ourselves, we're acting out of pride. When pride is our chosen attitude, God opposes us.

So how can you and I choose to "clothe ourselves with humility toward one another" as 1 Peter 5:5 directs? Here's one way: We can follow Jesus' example in the Philippians. "Do nothing from rivalry or [pride], but in humility count others more significant that yourselves... Have this in mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus". Jesus chose to think of others as more important than Himself. Just think about how huge that is! Jesus, the Son of God, the Creator of of the universe said, "You before me. Your needs before my needs." That's the example of our Savior.

Today will present multiple opportunities for you to follow His example. Don't miss or resist them. Instead, smile and think. This is my chance to be like Jesus! God is watching and waiting to reward you.

Ways to Boost Self-Esteem

What we need in this world is a self who can withstand the test of time. If you can't help yourself, who can help you? Boosting the self-esteem is a vital thing to do to survive and to be happy. And there are seven ways to do it.

1) Think back to when you did something new for the first time.Learning something new is often accompanied by feelings of nervousness, lack of self belief and high stress levels, all of which are necessary parts of the learning process. The next time you feel under-confident, remembering this will remind you that it's perfectly normal - you're just learning!

2) Do something you have been putting off. Like writing or calling a friend, cleaning the house, tidying the garden, fixing the car, organizing the bills, making a tasty and healthy meal - anything that involved you making a decision, then following through!

3) Do something you are good at. Examples? How about swimming, running, dancing, cooking, gardening, climbing, painting, writing… If possible, it should be something that holds your attention and requires enough focus to get you into that state of 'flow' where you forget about everything else. You will feel more competent, accomplished and capable afterwards, great antidotes to low self esteem!And while you're at it, seriously consider doing something like this at least once a week. People who experience 'flow' regularly seem to be happier and healthier.

4) Stop thinking about yourself! I know this sounds strange, but low self esteem is often accompanied by too much focus on the self. Doing something that absorbs you and holds your attention can quickly make you feel better.

5) Get seriously relaxed.If you are feeling low, anxious or lacking in confidence, the first thing to do is to stop thinking and relax properly. Some people do this by exercising, others by involving themselves in something that occupies their mind. However, being able to relax yourself when you want is a fantastic life skill and so practicing self hypnosis, meditation, or a physically-based relaxation technique such as Tai Chi can be incredibly useful. When you are properly relaxed, your brain is less emotional and your memory for good events works better. A great 'rescue remedy'!

6) Remember all the things you have achieved. This can be difficult at first, but after a while, you'll develop a handy mental list of self-esteem boosting memories. And if you're thinking "But I've never achieved anything", I'm not talking about climbing Everest here. Things like passing your driving test (despite being nervous), passing exams (despite doubting that you would), playing team sport, getting fit (even if you let it slip later), saving money for something, trying to help someone (even if it didn't work) and so on.

7) Remember that you could be wrong!If you are feeling bad about yourself, remember that you way you feel affects your thoughts, memory and behavior. So when you feel bad, you will only remember the bad times, and will tend to be pessimistic about yourself. This is where the tip 'Get Seriously Relaxed' comes in!

To Line for Rice

Philippines is believed to be experiencing a rice shortage. I don't know how true it is but all I know is that the Filipinos are becoming poorer and poorer. The most affordable rice now costs 36Php and the others range from 40-50 Php per kilo. This is such a burden for the Filipinos. Because of the expensive commercial rice, people opt for the NFA rice which costs 18.25 per kilo. Looking at the price difference, Filipinos would really save a lot. However, they must first wait for their turn and take a long line. Every morning as I pass by the public market, all I see are people falling in line to avail that cheap rice. I feel pity. I am grateful, not because they are suffering but because I am blessed not to do what they are doing. I don't have to fall in line just to have that cheap rice. My parents can still afford to buy those commercial rice. I am thankful and sorry. I am helpless. I am still a student. I wish I could do something to help them. But at the mean time, all I can do is pray for the betterment of the economy.

Water is Life. Water takes Lives.

What gives life can get away lives. We have been blessed to use water to sustain life. This natural source gives nourishment for us to survive. It is the source of food; used for cleaning, for sanitation, for agriculture, etc etc. But the respect it deserves, we did not give. Water is avenging for what we have done. Despite of its generosity, we never gave back it deserves. We throw garbage. Oil spills. Dynamite and cyanide fishing. Coral reef destruction. And so many activities that contribute to the destruction of the waters. We can't blame the water if it take away lives. We deserve its wrath. And we need to restore what we destroyed to prevent its wrath from coming back. We can't afford another tsunami, or a great flood or worst, water would take over the land and eat us all alive. I can't picture that event to happen. I don't want that that time would come. Not now. Not ever.

Robi is my BIG WINNER!

I don't know what happened but it turned out that Ejay bested Robi. He took the title as the PBB Teen Big Winner. I was expecting Robi to be the big winner because he really is a model in the house of Big Brother. He showed what it should be like a teenager. He embodies the characteristics of a good filipino teenager. But I am not saying that Ejay is not a good teen. It just that, Robi is a better teen. I was so disappointed when Robi's name was called for the SECOND TEEN PLACER. He should be the BIG WINNER. Well, I can't undo what happened. Maybe, Ejay won because he really needs it more than Robi. Still, I am happy for Ejay. I hope his family would be united and that they could start a better life. And to Robi, I think people love him more. To PBB staff, the show was so great.

L for Lingaw

June 5-6, 2008, I and Donella oriented Business and Management students. Because of tiredness from the previous days of orientation, I thought I could not enjoy the class. But I was so wrong. I really enjoyed the class. They are lingaw. The class is still dominated by guys and as usual the loud boys gave the class the fun it needed. However, I was a bit disappointed with the others who did not come back. They missed the fun. And to the remaining others, thank you for staying. I guess I have acquired new friends this time again.

U1 some?

June 2, 2008--My second time AFYOP experience started. I was enthusiastic. I was so excited to handle an engineering class. Although there was a little fear in me that maybe the class would be too noisy to manage, still, I stayed excited. My 1st class, U1, was at first a silent class but after the activities conducted, there was an improvement. The class became fun! I talked to some. I have people that I kept on approaching to make them feel at home. And most of all I had a very wonderful partner, Donella. I can say we have a good tandem, a pair to beat. LOL. I think the class enjoyed the orientation. I was so happy and still am happy because I had U1 as my class. The class is composed of 5 girls and the rest are boys; some are silent, and the others are just so hyper but everybody participated well. And it made us proud as facilitators. I will never forget the class, although I may not remember all their names, their faces but the experience I had with them will forever be remembered and treasured. After the two-day orientation, I know I have additional friends. So U1 some? Come get some. :)
