Must watch: 3 Idiots

I've just finished watching the Indian movie 3 Idiots.
The film is really awesome I don't think my words could be able to explain it, you just have to check it out yourself.

It's comedy, romance, drama, and a lot more all rolled into one.!
Of course, a good film wouldn't end without quotable quotes and heart-gripping soundtracks.
So let's have some:

-The heart gets easily scared, you have to trick it. However big the problem is, tell your heart "All is well".  

-First year or fourth year, it's knowledge. Just grab it.

-Study to be accomplished, not to be affluent.

-Follow excellence and success will chase you down.

-For once dump your fears, or someday on your deathbed, you're going to regret it.

Here's an excerpt from one of the soundtracks:
In this journey of a few strides
On the path called life
Don't quit just celebrate the ride.

Listen please to those who love you
Every dark night is followed by sunlight
Don't shut those who love you. 

(not the so-energetic All is well soundtrack, but I like this too coz of the melody. Let's hear it.^^)

It's time to add something on my 'what I can do' list

*Nakakabaro ako hin Bisaya bisan na usa pa la ako ka beses nasingadto ha among probinsya.
Ginyayakan ining Bisaya ha among balay ng akong mga paryente.

*English has been part of the Filipino Education system. It has been taught starting from Nursery, and that way, most Filipinos become fluent in English, even better than other Asian speakers.

*Pag pagod na mag-English, magtatagalog na, nose bleed eh. Madali lang ang tagalog, pero marami ring rules at exceptions.

Ako ay isang pinoy, sa puso't diwa, pinoy na isinilang sa aking bansa.
Pero sanay ako sa isang wika ng mga banyaga, at iyan ay ang Ingles.
Naging napakalaking tulong nito sa akin, at sa pagsisimula ng aking career.

I've grown up in the city, far from my parents' hometown, but despite the distance, I'm proud to say that somehow I can understand and speak the Waray or Bisaya language.( Yes, it is not just a dialect. That's one of the regional languages in the Philippines.) Even if I didn't grow up in the province, my parents were generous enough to immerse us in the Waray language at home. And that's how I got to learn it, through listening, trial and errors in trying to speak it, eventually I got a bit better.

As for English, it has been part of the Education system in the Philippines starting from Nursery. And I'm thankful for that.

So all in all, I know 3 languages.Tagalog = proficient/ Waray =errr... basic survival to conversational / English = ehem.. I think proficient lol.

But I think it's high time that I would add some if I can.

English was my favorite subject back in high school.It wasn't easy to learn it. There are a lot of crazy things and exceptions in the English language. But through constant studying and perseverance, it gradually seem easy.

I think it's the same with other languages I might decide to learn.
Immersion is the best way to learn a language, but thank God the internet was invented, now we can find some useful information in the net on how to do it. Plus there are helpful netizens out there who are willing to help.

I believe God will not lead us to a dead end dream. Even if something might seem hard or impossible, it's only in our thoughts. The truth is, behind the door of that dream lies opportunities.

And if we give up just because the door is hard to open, we opt to leave the opportunities wasted.
And I don't want to do that.

I know, I myself, or other people might think that I'm 'already-old-for that-stuff', like learning another language or learning an instrument. But no, these are just lies in my head, and I shouldn't listen to them.

The truth is, as long as you're alive, you have a chance, so take your chance and do improve.

Whatever happened to my fruitful distractions, it was serious!

Seriously... I don't know how many times I've traveled a certain place, with a certain person, spending all the time with him.

 Too bad to think it's only in my mind.

I said this blog will be my distractions, but instead of thinking of something to put here, I flee to dream land, with my illusions on both hands.

But now I know I have to go back and face my reality.
I have to let go of the fantasy.

I have to set my mind straight.
I pray to God that He help me set my way straight, to his plans, and not to my wishful thoughts.

Someday, there may be a chance, when all I've been dreaming will come true,
but for that to happen, I first have to go through the real stuff.
Train and persevere. Work hard and be determined.
Honor God and ask Him to keep guiding me.

I know that God's best is better than mine.
When we ask God,it's not a matter of 'possibility' or 'impossibility'.
It's a matter of God's timing. :)

Remember, God's delays are not God's denials. :)
