Graduation: The End is the New Beginning

Most people are happy when graduation day comes. It means that you have succeeded in your studies and that you are ready to begin a new chapter in life. It is also sad because we will leave our friends and teachers. Let me tell you about my own graduation experience.

It was April 10,2018, I was really excited for graduation so I woke up at 4a.m. in the morning. I put on my makeup and my mom did a Game Of Thrones inspired hairstyle.

When we got to the graduation ceremony, I realized that time is fast. I cried because I will never be able to repeat the moments I had with my classmates and teachers.That someday I  will soon forget their names and faces.

I figured out that I didn’t want to graduate, I didn’t want everything to end so fast. Then my mother told me that life is like a book. We all have to begin a new chapter.

I then realized that I should be happy on this day because it’s is a sign that you have accomplished your studies and it’s time to move up to the next level. I may not be able to turn back time, but I still have beautiful memories with them that I will always treasure. And my mom was right, this isn’t the end but the beginning.img20180410074101.jpg

I’m a WCOPA Registered Delegate!

OK, I have been MIA for several months now. It’s just that school has made me so busy lately that I didn’t have time to update my blog anymore. But I have a good news which I’m so excited to share!

Last November 18, 2017, I auditioned for the World Championships of Performing Arts –  Team Philippines. It was such a thrilling experience. I got to see Jed Madela! He is a famous Filipino singer, and very popular in our country.

Jed Madela was one of the judges during the audition, together with the WCOPA National Director, Tito Gerry Mercado (he is not my uncle, he just wants us to call him ‘Tito’) and his wife, Jed Madela’s talent manager, Tita Annie Mercado (again, she is not my aunt, she just wants us to call her ‘Tita’). =D

My First Outdoor Camping: An Epic Fail

School-related camping is one of the most exciting things that we could experience in our lives. We can do educational and fun activities, and spend time with our friends and teachers. Of course, you would always think that it would be perfect — however, there are so many things that could happen which would make it a total disaster. In fact, my very first supposed outdoor camping for Girl Scout of the Philippines was a total epic fail.

Early morning of our camping day, I was all prepared and excited. My mom told me to be very careful, to always stay with my troop, listen to the teachers, don’t go away from the camping area (the usual reminders), and to have fun. My dad dropped me off to school where the bus was waiting. I found my scout mates and we talked about our expectations about camp. Obviously, all of us are excited and looking forward to all the fun that we were about to have.

Our camping location was in Carmen, a town northeast of Cebu. On the way, we stopped by Jollibee to eat our lunch.

After the drive, we arrived at peaceful place, the rest house of our school headmistress’ family, Ms. Mia Villamor-Young. There were a lot of trees and and it was located beside the beach. We then explored around and put up our tents. We did some fun activities, and everybody was just so happy!

My Theater Experience

Like everyone else, I have a talent. I like to sing, dance, and act. So I joined the Little Boy Productions’ musical theater summer workshop. I really had a great time there. It taught me a lot of lessons, and I learned a lot. It’s just a sad thing that it has to end so soon. I really miss my friends.

During my first day, I had to try two classes: one for the kids 4 to 11 years old, and the other is for those 12 and above. See, I think they could not decide right away which category they should put me in. I am only 10, but I could also pass for a teen. So the coordinator made a suggestion for me to try both, and let me decide which group I would feel comfortable learning with. I personally thought both classes were fun , but I ultimately decided, that since I am already a big girl, I should be with the teens.

I kept thinking that the theater workshop  would be so strict, because that was what my mom and dad told me. But actually, it was very fun and full of interesting people and friendly teachers. We played a lot of games, which by the I way I enjoyed so much, and learned a lot of things about theater singing and acting, including dancing (which I still need to improve on). It was the most wonderful experience I’ve ever had this summer.
