I just have this inspiration to try writing Haiku, from my best bud who also do it. (Yeah you know who you are.)
Btw, Haiku is a kind of poem in Japan, mainly consisting of three lines, with 5-7-5 syllable measures.

I think it's cool to be able to write your feelings in prose^^ ( when you don't want to say it straight)

This doesn't sound jolly at all, still... I wrote it down hehe :) Here's my first take:

Too much
I'm over thinking
Lost in sea of emotions
Oh God hear me out...

Small beginnings

As I was reading the biographies of popular actors and actresses, I realized one thing: They didn't become famous instantly; they worked themselves up, starting with insignificant roles, meeting disappointments and trials along the way, until they get where they are now.

Then it hit me. Great things start from small beginnings.

(Ok, I know it's from Milo but anyway, it's true.)

I guess it also applies the same way with ordinary people. Too often we don't try because we are afraid; afraid to fail and to be disappointed. The feeling that what you have isn't enough to get you where you want.

Or sometimes, we are too proud of what we have we think we don't deserve to play just that 'insignificant part'.

But keeping yourself afraid will just paralyze you. It's better to be afraid and do it anyway, than just be afraid and do nothing. Trials, disappointments would surely hurt, but it's the only way to make us better, to make us stronger.

Pride can be a poison inside you. It will hinder your development because you think you already have enough. How can you fill a cup that's already full?

We won't get where we want if we would just expect happy-endings all the time, even roses have their thorns.
 In the same way, we also have to face whatever might hurt in order to have a beautiful reward.

The English language is tricky, and we all know it.

Now if you're the type of person who likes skipping or sleeping in English classes, then this one might be for you. Here are reasons why you should really be paying attention to verbs, prepositions and vocabulary.

As an esl teacher, I have heard a lot of times  expressions gone bad and stirred out the imagination in me, just because what the student mean to say in his mind, didn't really go well with his sentence.

So now, I'm going to share a compilation of few bloopers they made. I have no intention to belittle anyone who doesn't have good English skills, I'm just writing this for fun ;)
  • The storm has passed away. (Should I say r.i.p or should I jump for joy? :P)
  • I suffered from hard work  (Is hard work an illness now? /parang sakit lang ang hard work.. hehe)
  • I had a dinner with Korean galbi. (ok, you're the kind of person who dates with food :P /Oh sige ikaw na ang may ka-date na pagkain.)
  • I'm breaking now  (Humpty dumpty is that you?!   O.o )
  • My high blood pressure is normal.(Just what? /Ano raw?! O.o)
  • My company send Japan for me(Oh your company is rich!/Ang yaman ng company nyo ah..)
  • I was drinking together with my colleagues in the tree (Are you tree spirits?/Mga engkanto ba kayo? o.0)
  • I ate my friends. (Did you eat them alive?! x.x)

So that ends the list. I'll try to keep tabs if I ever encounter one again, but I think it'll take long, since my students are already on their way to improvement. ;P
