A lot of first time experiences happened to me this year. Or let us say I've been braver to try new things this year. I am always an over thinker and as much as I hate to admit it, I am a pessimist. I do not know exactly why, but I always tend to stay inside my comfort zone.
Since the start of 2014, I've been trying to change some of my perspective. I got this new idea to push myself to the limit and try different things. I encouraged myself to join various competitions that will hone my skill and recognize my talent as an artist. #chos! I am very happy that I won most of them. I trained my mind to think that it's okay not to win but I gotta try. I need to try.
A lot of good things happened to me this year and I'd like to believe that these things are not because of luck but blessings from above. Below are some of the blessings I received this year. My main purpose for listing them down is not to brag but to share to you my happiness and to remind you my dear readers that it always pay to take courage in everything. Who knows, that little courageous act of yours might take you to where you belong. Sometimes we need to get lost to find meaning in our very existence.We may not make the right decisions at all times but everything that happens in our life keeps us going. Wait,why do I sound so inspiring here? labo.
Our Wanted Picture of the Week winner is Kamags Christine Chan (PICTURES with your art pieces ) with a caption, "Sometimes the best way to find the real you is to indulge yourself in art..."
'What Happened Last Night'
I was more than lucky to have a picture with the main casts of Lav Diaz' film during its first screening in Cebu. ( I said FIRST because I'm hoping for a 2nd screening).Feeling close kay Sid Lucero si ate hahaha. Norte, End of History is considered as one of the greatest films of 2013. A real masterpiece. New wave to the Philippine film industry.
This is not because of luck, this is because of hardwork (and sleepless nights)
I haven't joined any creative writing workshop before prior to the latest Mugna creative writing workshop held in our university. The led panelist was Dr. Eulysses Aparace, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences of the University of Cebu and a recipient of Palanca Award in poetry (english category). To have your work read and critique in front of writers and literary critiques is overwhelming enough for me. To know that they love your work is heaven.
Furor Scribendi has chosen ten young aspiring writers to consist the third annual Badlis Creative to be held at the Katarungan Hall, CNU, on Saturday, March 29.
The panel will be led by Palanca award-winning writers Januar Yap and Jona Bering.
I'd be too narcissistic if I'll just blog about myself so here's another spark of sunshine. The little boy will shine brighter than I do. Credits to me of course hahaha :P
If there's something that you really love doing, give it a try. Now is the time. Not tomorrow, not yesterday. Only now :)
Good luck readers! before you sleep and in every waking moment of your life, always remember to count your blessings. <3
