Dream vividly

P and I met at the overpass of Quezon Avenue and Edsa. We talked about a school assignment. Then we walked along several alleys and passed through the fence of a house. We went inside the house and the owner got mad at us. He threatened to tell the bar examiner. We apologized and got out of the house. S saw us outside and we all went home. Then I woke up.

Wait

Today is the start of Advent. This is the season for waiting for the coming of Christ. All my life, I have been waiting for something better.

I just wait because I simply obey what people tell me. I obey my mother and my father when he was alive. I obey my professors and superiors. I ask people what they want and I comply if it is good. I usually wait and know what will happen.

But sometimes the recent events in my life still surprise me. I passed the bar. My father died. I got a job in a law firm. So many things have happened this year, and I am grateful for all, good and bad.

I am thankful that in the homily today, our priest said three important things:
1. God is in control.
2. Trust in God.
3. Persevere and do good.

So please help me Lord as I avoid masturbation, pornography and erotica. I will wait for a loving husband and good children or whatever is your will. Lord, you are in control. I trust in you. I will persevere and do good. Amen

Learn your lessons

1. Don't settle for photocopies. Find the original copies of documents.

2. Review your attached documents before you email them if they show the information you want to convey.

3. Log your hours before you leave the office.

4. Make a list of your lessons learned instead of waiting to write a narrative blog post.

Tanim bala

Nakakalungkot at nakakagalit ang mga balita ngayon tungkol sa "tanim bala" sa mga paliparan sa Pilipinas. Mayroon nang mga misyonaryo, matatanda, at kabataan na napahamak dito. Paano ba natin maiwasan maging biktima ng "laglag bala" sa mga paliparan?

1. Ikaw mismo ang mag-empake ng bagahe mo. Kunin ng mga litrato ang bagahe bago isara. Balutin ang bagahe sa plastic para maiwasan malagyan sa loob. 

2. Maging maingat sa mga paliparan. Huwag buksan ang bagahe nang mag-isa. Huwag tumanggap ng gamit na padala mula sa ibang tao.

3. Kapag may inspeksyon, magkaroon ng testigo bago pabuksan ang mga bagahe. Maaaring maghintay ng abogado bago buksan ang bag.

4. Maging kalma at alerto. Tingnan, makinig at makiramdam sa paligid. Huwag matakot sa mga tao sa paliparan. Irekord ang lahat ng sinasabi nila at kunan ng litrato ang mga pangyayari.

Sana maimbestigahan na ang "laglag bala" at mahanapan na ng lunas ang problemang ito.


Kung bumalik ang Papa sa Pilipinas, baka may makita ring bala sa mga bagahe niya.
