greatest failure of my life

I cannot sleep. That one subject I failed still haunts me everyday. I cannot even log in to systemone because I dont want to see my grade in another subject. I am so disappointed with myself. This is the first time in my 19 years of existence that I lost confidence with myself.

But the most disappointing thing ever is how my heart reacted to this. Why do I feel this? God is always asking me, am I never enough for you? Almost a month has passed since I asked God, why did you let this happen?

This is a struggle. The enemy whispers the what ifs and the could haves. It is sad that I listen to them instead of listening to what the Father says to me, my Father who has proven to me for so many times how faithful and true He is.

I declare today that I would trust God with everything. If this did not happen, maybe I’m still a hypocrite who lies to herself that I have lifted everything to God.

Lord God, I trust You will all my heart. I really do not see Your reason for this. But I know that You can see the bigger picture. I declare that for the last two sems of my college lives, you would fulfill your promises to me. I lift to you all the burdens and heartaches that would not let me get to sleep. I declare that your love is truly enough. In Jesus’s Name. Amen

My housemates and I had a little photo shoot before parting ways during the Christmas season. Here is what I wore. It was super pretty in LB. I hope that they did not bring down the Christmas vibes. Wouldn’t be that the world will be a better place if it’s Christmas everyday?? 

Here is one of my housemates, Leslie. :) Hahaha Everytime I’m with her, my face is always like the one below. :) Kidding!:) Praying for our growth in our relationship with God!! <3

And that’s Maika! My super pretty housemate rin. She’s always fun to be with! Az in. We have our own way to find something funny about something. :)  Love you girl.

And that’s Ghelvin. :) We do not get to hang out a lot but when we do, it’s always fun! :)

First ootd for 2014

Happy new year everyone! :) This is my first post for 2014 and one of my many new year resolutions to keep this blog updated all the time. So guys, this is what I wore to our family reunion a while ago.

I tried to be simple as possible. I got my dress from Mura Dito, a shop in Divisioria. It’s very cheap and doesn’t look like the usual clothes that come from Divisoria. My sandals were from Charcoal. It was my Tita’s Christmas present. I love it because I can wear it everytime it rains in UPLB. 

Anyway, here are other photos. Hahaha!:)

I think that this is a better Facebook profile picture :( 

But this is my DP :( Do you think that I should change my DP with the photo above?

Natuwa lang ako sa test shoot.

Anyway, I feel so excited for what God has planned for me this year! and I am going to have a partial closet makeover because God has been dealing to me if what clothes would honor Him. 

xoxo,

Highlights of 2013

Hi everyone! I’m so thankful because 2013 was/is a blast. It’s the best year so far and I’m totally looking forward for 2014. So here are my top 12 highlights (one for each month) for this year. 

January

Econsoc’s Strobe Party. As an external affairs committee member, it is very fulfilling to be a part in making this happen (though unfortunate events happened in the making). Also because I got this legit Forever 21 dress for only 300 pesos. Because I had this picture with Pathway <3 and because that “thing” happened which led me seeking Jesus. 

February

My housemates surprised me for my 18th birthday. It was a sweet gesture from them. It took them so much time and effort. Hahaha. But this was a very long story.

March

No photo. The grades that I did not deserve. Because I learned that I deserve a nothing but then God gave me more. <3

April

My baby sister/pamangkin. At first I didn’t like the feels of having a sibling but I can say now that it is one of the best feelings ever <3

May

Fashion internship. I have no photo and I’m not allowed to post anything about it. :( But it’s the best job ever! 

June

Educom’s UPCAT Review. This school year, I transferred to another committee in our organization because I dreamed of being a teacher before, and this was a part of my fulfilling my dreams. I taught Math to 4th year students. I hoped that they passed UPCAT. 

July

I had ombre red hair. It was supposed to be pink but the color faded as days passed by. This was part of my bucket list because I realized that I could never get this hair color again. (maybe because the firm that I’ll be working for someday has strict hair color rules) 

August

Actually, I’m thankful for these people all year round and forever. (hahaha I can’t think of something to post for August eh so I posted this but I’m thankful for my VGmates all days of my life) These ladies are my sisters in Christ. They push me towards God. They are always there to listen <3

September

My Victory Weekend!! This is one of the best days of my lie. Finally, declaring to the other believers that Jesus is my Lord and Savior. <3 

October

No photo. My grades for the first semester. I deserve singkos because I learned that I deserve nothing but yet God gave me more than that. I didn’t even give my all yet I passed! 

November

Thankful for second semester because I know that it’s going to be the best sem yet!!

December

Econsoc. The best org ever. Being part of it is really one of the highlights of my life. Having people that you know would be with you for a lifetime. (if not all, at least some) :)

I owe this post to God. This all happened because of Him, because He is faithful and loving. Thank you Father. I’m so excited for 2014. :)

Why Do We Celebrate Christmas?

17 years of my life, I thought that Christmas is giving gifts or money, having new clothes and shoes, and people are obligated to be happy just because it is Christmas. Or I thought that it was making a point that you actually heard mass which is a little different from Sunday masses. However, I know that Christmas is the birthday of Jesus Christ. Period. Then, so what? 

Ever sine I accepted Jesus as my Savior, I learned today that Christmas is a season for us to be reminded that 2000 years ago, God gave His only Son to take your place for your sins. God is a just and loving God. According to the Scriptures, for the wages of sin is death. Thus, we have to go to hell. However, Jesus was sent to pay that death. He bought us with His blood. Thus, Christmas is a reminder that Jesus was born to save us from our sins. This is the best gift ever, right? 

Merry Christmas everyone! Let us not forget that we celebrate Christmas because of Jesus.
