August

Last August had been quite eventful for my otherwise boring life. Firstly, I had an extremely bad scare because, having obsessive-compulsive tendencies, I usually don't lose things. This time though, I completely forgot my wallet at the PAG-IBIG office after paying. I only found out when I was back home and it was already dark, plus it was a Friday. Losing money was not the problem because I already paid everything to my monthly dues. But I had all my important IDs in that wallet that just imagining myself trying to file for every lost ID was dreadful. It would cost me a lot of time, energy, and money.

But I couldn't do anything yet but wait. I was hopeful that I left it at the PAG-IBIG office because that was the last place I went to before going home. The other possibilities were that I got robbed in a jeepney or it somehow fell from my bag, which were both highly unlikely.

So the next day, Saturday, I went back to the office. Luckily there were people because some employees were working over time. I asked the security guard if they had a wallet in their "lost and found" box. He got it out and it was full of unclaimed IDs and cards of all types! Unfortunately, mine were not there. He told me to go back on Monday and directly ask the cashier of the counter where I left it.

So I went back and thankfully, thankfully! I've never been more thankful in my life. I got the wallet back and everything in it! Salamat sa mga maayong tawo sa kalibutan!



After more than a year of trying, I've finally finished my Spanish tree in Duolingo. Duolingo is an app for learning languages. This does not mean though that I am now fluent in Spanish, it only means that I finished the tree haha! If I'm going to rate my self, I might be kindergarten level, or grade 1? So unless I continue studying, practice writing, and listening, I will be stuck in basic Spanish.

I have been catching up on superhero movies last month, Marvel and DC. I did not bother watching Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark World; they both looked bad on trailers alone. I was Team Cap on Civil War, preferred Ant-Man to Deadpool, and honestly liked Batman v Superman. I watched the ultimate (longer) version. Speaking of Batman v Superman, someone made a RETRO trailer. What if Michael Keaton and Christopher Reeve had made this movie? Check out the trailer below:

Finally, I made a website for the Diocese of Digos for the Evangelization 2033 movement of the Catholic Church. I hope you could visit the site.

#TindogDavao

Tindog Davao!

I was planning to post personal updates that Friday night. But then, at about 10:45 PM, I received a call from my sister. I don't have television, so I mostly rely on the internet for news. She wanted to confirm if the explosion was true, so I looked it up on FB. Apparently, this is where I get most of the news updates nowadays. The first things I saw were video clips from witnesses of people running away from something and then the aftermath. So it was true. The first reports included an exploding tank as a possibility, but the next day the ASG owned up to and later disowned it, saying an ally was behind the blast. I really hope the authorities get to the bottom of this.

All I can do now is say prayers for the victims and also pray for our leaders especially the president and his daughter. He is old and isn't getting much sleep while Sara is pregnant, and they still do what they do best and that is be with the people in times like these. May the Lord guide us all!

I'm currently listening to this song:


Buffalo Springfield - For What It's Worth
There's something happening here
what it is ain't exactly clear
there's a man with a gun over there
telling me i got to beware
i think it's time we stop, children,
what's that sound everybody look what's going down


There's battle lines being drawn
nobody's right if everybody's wrong
young people speaking their minds
getting so much resistance from behind
i think it's time we stop, hey,
what's that sound every body look what's going down

What a field-day for the heat
a thousand people in the street
singing songs and carrying signs
mostly say, hooray for our side
it's time we stop, hey, what's that sound
everybody look what's going down

Paranoia strikes deep
into your life it will creep
it starts when you're always afraid
you step out of line, the man come and take you away
we better stop, hey, what's that sound
everybody look what's going down
stop, hey, what's that sound
everybody look what's going down
stop, now, what's that sound
everybody look what's going down
stop, children, what's that sound
everybody look what's going down
