Life

Life, simple as paper,
As complex as rubber,
Yet when lived better,
Everything’s lighter.

How do you live better?
When did you seem to question everything?

Everything’s heavier.

Warrior of Christ: An Armory of Hope and Trust

The path of the righteous is never easy but is never as demanding with the Lord beside you.

We live in a world, who embraces negativity as something valuable just because it is unusual. Unfortunately, this world’s acceptance is twisted in ways we can’t even define. It may be true that we now live in an environment full of pessimistic ideals, but that doesn’t mean there is no hope.

Movie Review

Love, Simon : Movie Review

It’s been a while since I posted my last movie review; I feel like this is worth an appreciation post despite being someone straight. This is the first time I watched a gay movie and I must say, this is very new to me. I haven’t read any gay novel before as well, thus I haven’t read the book; I don’t remember watching the trailer which means I literally went in blind.

Let me put into words my cents without spoiling much of the movie.

Lost yet Hopeful

I feel like I’ve been saying sorry a lot for the past few weeks that some of you may think I don’t mean it. I do. It may have been challenging for me during this restoration process, but that doesn’t justify to disrespect others.

It’s kind of funny how I keep on saying, “Just because you are hurting, does not make it reasonable to treat others just the same”, and here I am eating my own words. 

I assume some of you who knew me for a long time may get confused reading this since you knew how optimistic and confident I am anywhere I go. You know, I realized God gives us challenges not because He wants to punish us. He sees our pain, and yet He knows we will get through this. When that happens, we become better than we were before.

“Lost is a place too” have been one of my favorite things to say these past few weeks. I know I am still lost, hurt and confused, but despite all that I am hopeful. I know that this is not who God wanted me to be. He is preparing me for something bigger. He has better plans and better opportunities laid out for me.

I say this again to everyone I may have hurt in my current state of restoration process, I am deeply, regretfully sorry. To heal one’s heart does not happen overnight. I pray to God that He may heal those who are hurting at the moment. God bless. 😊

Little Adventures

Weekend at Christina Villas Resort

Despite being deprived of decent sleep, I still went with church mates over the weekend for the PPC planning held at Christina Villas Resort.

Being the occasionally loner that I am, I spent most of my time there being alone.

BUNK BEDS. *see the line of the sheets underneath, it calls me…
So I succumb to the arrest of exhaustion I’ve been dealing with all day.

And woke up early for these…

Despicable Nature

​The environment is so defiled, you hate what you’ve become.

I ran out of motivation, I ran out of inspiration.

To keep going, one must endure the unjust attention.

Judgmental eyes they bear, 

immature mentality they wear.

How can you hold on to your intergrity?

When people around you grasp for power and authority.

Genres: YA, Science Fiction, Steampunk, Fantasy, Historical, YA Adventure

Over-all rating of the book: 5 stars

Welcome to the war.

The Tesla Institute is a premier academy that trains young time travelers called Rifters. Created by Nicola Tesla, the Institute seeks special individuals who can help preserve the time stream against those who try to alter it.

The Hollows is a rogue band of Rifters who tear through time with little care for the consequences. Armed with their own group of lost teens–their only desire to find Tesla and put an end to his corruption of the time stream.

Torn between them are Lex and Ember, two Rifters with no memories of their life before joining the time war.

When Lex’s girlfriend dies during a mission, the only way he can save her is to retrieve the Dox, a piece of tech which allows Rifters to re-enter their own timeline without collapsing the time stream. But the Dox is hidden deep within the Telsa Institute, which means Lex must go into the enemy camp. It’s there he meets Ember, and the past that was stolen from them both comes flooding back.

Now armed with the truth of who they are, Lex and Ember must work together to save the future before the battle for time destroys them both…again.
