A Love for Music for a Stress-Free Day

This past few days was the greatest challenge of my life. I was hospitalized for almost two and a half weeks. I was diagnosed with amoeba and my doctor said I was stressed in my work. The doctor recommend to have enough rest and sleep. I thanks God for my fast recovery. I am out in the hospital and taking my medications and taking enough rest. It also lessen my stress and sickness whenever I listen to inspirational and praise music. My younger sister usually play guitar at home, and it really helps me relax. It soothes my feeling. I got the feeling of tranquility. Good thing there is a site like https://www.guitarcenter.com where you can find great quality guitars. You make your purchase online and get rid of stresses. From then one, I'm going to practice a healthy lifestyle.

Keep going everyone. Have a stress-free day.

Movie Review: Trolls

It's been  a long time since I made my last movie review here in my blog. So what makes me write again in my blog about movies? Well certainly because I fell in love to this movie. Especially the plot of the story and the soundtrack. Any kids born in the 90's well surely appreciate this movie. The soundtrack of the movie is very nostalgic. If you are a Justine Timberlake fan, the more you will fall in love with his voice and if you're not, surely you will be after you watch the movie.

Forget about the soundtrack, let's go on  purely a review on the plot. I'm a fan of animated movies, I'm not being biased, but this one is one of my top of the list. I love the message of the story. "No Trolls left behind", and "Happiness is inside of all of us, sometimes we just need someone to help you find it". It speaks about finding real happiness and camaraderie. It talks about friendship and love. It also shows how happiness can soften people's heart or the opposite, how sadness and aloofness could  hardened ones heart. We can learn a lot of life lesson in the movie. The story of the prince and chamber maid also touches me. If you love someone, don't pretend to someone else just to make that person love you. Don't be afraid of who you really are. The person who loves you, will accept who you are after knowing all your lapses and flaws. Don't be afraid, just let them show... your true colors. Your true colors are beautiful like a rainbow. Heheh

This is the movie for the whole family, young and old. We can surely relate to the movie, to the music and to characters they portray. This is a movie fun and exciting, plus the comedy in it. You'll surely enjoy it. I'll give this movie a two-thumbs up! Keep going everyone. God bless.

Perks of Being a Teacher

I'll be celebrating my 3rd year anniversary as a public school teacher. Year 2014 when I signed my contract and received my item from national the position of  Teacher 1. The feeling was very overwhelming and rewarding- knowing that it paid off all your sacrifices while applying for that job position. And finally all my dreams starts to unfold right in front of me.

The work of a school teacher is stressful and draining sometimes. But, I cannot deny the fact that I am enjoying and loving this job. Along the way, you'll meet different kinds of students- the crazy one, sincere, cheerful, loud and outgoing and stubborn. All of these are sum up in one classroom- your second home. The adventure and misadventure of a teacher is undeniably exciting. One thing, I hate about my classroom is when the whole class is very noisy and student could no longer hear your voice and discussion. Good thing, in today's technology, you could avail and enjoy the benefits of using a lapel mic. Music lovers will also love this. Lapel mic is very helpful especially to those who do not have a  well-modulated voice. Lapel mic is a must for small or big classroom setup. Very helpful and convenient to use in class program, music fest and other extra curricular activities.

Though, some bad experiences happened. And unending hardship and hurdles come along the way, I will never trade this position for any profession and jobs. This is where I belong. This is what I want- to touch lives and influence people (in a good way). Teaching is the noblest job ever.

Keep going everyone.

Procrastinator: The Thing You Should Hate About You

Today, I just learned my lesson- that is to never procrastinate ever!

Procrastinator- is a person who delays or puts things off — like work, chores, or other actions — that should be done in a timely manner. A procrastinator is likely to leave all the Christmas shopping until December 24th. Procrastinator comes from the Latin verb procrastinare, which means deferred until tomorrow.
I know some promises are made to be broken, but I'll try my best to do the right thing. Today, some opportunities just slip away just because I procrastinate. Many of us, boast about tomorrow... the next day and the days to come, but we never realize that those days will never come. The things that was lost today was just a small amount of penny. But hey, you cannot easily find that certain amount this days. The opportunity is already in my hand but unluckily, I allowed tardiness overpower my being. I got tired to do the task, knowing that there's still tomorrow to do it, lately I realized it's already gone.

One thing I don't want to pass on is this kind of trait or attitude. It really sucks. Good thing what got away is small amount, but what if the greater and much bigger opportunities will be gone just because you always procrastinate?

Procrastination is a killer disease. It kills you time, opportunity and dreams to do big. It gives you nothing but regrets. In my life I don't want to say these lines... "what if.." and "if only...". That is the most miserable words to say. And I don't want to be a miserable person who regret her life and the person I could become.

Keep going everyone. Enjoy life and please... Do not procrastinate.

What and Why I Prefer "Harana"?

This February, celebrate love month filled with music and love songs. Enjoy every minute with your loved ones. It's very nice and romantic when you play music to your love ones. I find it very sincere and touching. In the Philippines, playing music to the one you love (usually used in courtship) is called "harana". Serenading the one you love. Making her feel extra special. The man looks attractive and sexy when they know how to sing songs and play the guitar. I believe in using songs to say things.
Music and love makes this world go around. 

Don't settle for flowers and chocolates. I prefer "harana" than any other gifts. Start it now by learning the guitar. Go grab your sheet music guitar. This love month, February, now is the perfect time to pursue someone and make them feel special and wanted.

Keep going everyone. Happy Love month. God bless :)

February: The Love Month?

It's the beautiful month of the year again. Hello February! Many doesn't care about this month, while other also look forward for this month to come.
February is a love month celebrated all over the world. It originally started as Valentines day. Valentine's day was named after saint Valentine's commemoration at 14th of February. Later, it was associated with tradition of country love.

Where flowers, chocolates, teddy bears and etc. are very expensive during this month, it keeps me wonder. Why wait for February where flowers and other gifts are in it's peek price. We have all the time.. and other months to surprise and give special gifts for your love ones and special ones. I'm being practical. Why not give them flowers everyday, or every January or any other month? Stop practicing rituals- don't be so traditional. I don't find it very sincere, when you give flowers to someone because 'hello, it's February'? I don't see wrongs in giving gifts on February, I just want to share and express to you that everyday can be a love day, every month is a love month. Stop, don't wait for February to remind you to buy flowers for your wife, children girlfriend and etc. They deserve to have it everyday. They need to be appreciated everyday.

Anyway, I'm not playing protagonist. Be wise enough, don't buy flowers on February. Hahaha kidding. Happy love month, anyway.

Evolution of Music Lovers: From 90s to Millennials

I was one of the kids born in 90s. I witnessed how our generation changes as well as the taste in music. I was inspired to write this blog when I heard my sister's music playlist. I don't know why but there's really a change when you hear today's hit. I am not biased, but I think the 90s songs are more meaningful, classical and... I don't know, it's inexplicable. Nothing quite brings you back to the good old days like '90s music, and even those of us who prefer far hipper music today have to admit that lisening to 90's music gives us all sorts of nostalgic feels.

Born in 1989, I've witnessed how music evolves as well as music icons.  Westlife turns into Coldplay and The Script, cassette tape and CDs replaced by ipod, song hits books faced out due to Google search lyrics and chords. Everything is now accessible through internet, even music are now downloadable in ITunes and available in spotify. 

If you are a "true blood" music lover, you will clearly see the changes. Even in musical instruments. You will witness how it evolves. I've visited some sites today like guitar center rockville, you will see different kinds of modern guitars and other musical instruments. You can find great selection of guitars, keyboards, basses, drums and etc. Those instruments are far more different than the instruments in the 90s. The instruments now are so modern and hightech.

Music also undergo evolution of different different genres. From pop, hiphop, alternative rock to Dark Bass Music, Triphop, Air Pop Glitch Soulazz, Country Dance Music, Space Trap and etc. I'm not an expert in music and genre, but as a normal music lover I've clearly hear and see the difference of the style, instruments and genres of music. But despite all the changes... music always touches ones soul.

Keep going everyone. God bless.

Facing New Beginnings With a Grateful Heart


Another year has ended and we are about to face a new year- a new beginning. I can't imagine how my life looks like 10 years... or 5 years ago. Everything happens in God's perfect plan. I thank God everyday of my life because He made all things work together for good. I've been grateful for all the blessings He showered me. I am also thankful for my family for the treasured moments and some sad and painful moments. The 2016 is the year for me for reconciliation, for healing of wounds and forgiveness. I won't elaborate all the pains I've been through in this blog, but all I can say that God has been so gracious to us that despite all the pain, He shows mercy. The hardships I had the past year will not compare to the love and grace I received from God. It is easy to be thankful for the good things. A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who are also thankful for the setbacks. 

Things to do and look forward this 2017:
1. Give more time for myself. Explore, wander and do the things I love. I would love to go back to painting- again. I want to go to different places within the Philippines with my family. I want to explore new things alone. "More Me time" for me. This all I want.

2. Change my perspective. Give priorities and finish work on time. I hate to procrastinate. Not this time! Not this 2017.

3. Make a better version of me. Feel and be beautiful. There's always a better version of yourself. Go and find it. Be beautiful- inside and out. 

Get a life. I'm so excited for the new life that awaits. God is gracious. enjoy life's adventure. Keep going everyone. God bless. Happy New Year.
