It was all because I had the wrong mindset. And hence, likewise to my drive. D’awwwwwwwww
Some Kinda Ferrari
Why be a corolla altis when you can be a ferrari? Why be ordinary when you can relish in being something else, something novel in this world? I remember once again that we are capable of influencing what we would like to experience in a day. We are capable of influencing what others experience when encountering us as well.
Too many feelings. Hahahaha.
OH MY GOODNESS. WHAT ARE YOU DOING NINA.
You are better than this. You are better than this. You are better than this. FIX IT.

Sincerity and Weaknesses
Oh woe be my weaknesses. They cause me such stress. I sincerely want to eradicate them… The actions that have been ensuing are so hard. Pistol straight to my ego, but that’s alright. Humbling one’s self is good, I think. I am only consoled with this: “Growth begins when we begin to accept our own weakness.”
Faces of Urban Design
Discussion of Arch. Grace Ramos UP College of Architecture, Diliman Commentary and thoughts of mine I suppose it would make sense firstly to assimilate one’s self into the culture of a “sister city” of one’s own. But besides the desire for diversity and treading beyond one’s comfort zone, there needs to be the sense of systematic or methodic means of attaining...

Construction Systems Discussion 2
I find that powerpoint presentations with background images are more engaging; if the topic is particularly boring, the background image reminds one of the reason WHY we must pay attention still. It’s the overall vision. Today’s discussion involved: Security Systems & Communication Systems The suppliers need to be located and identified: 1. Bosch 2. California Systems...
Your Heart Today
I was thinking about my fears, and this song popped in my mind after a while of my chanting “do not doubt do not doubt”. Where there is fear, I can allay Where there is pain, I can heal Where there are wounds, I can bind And hunger, I can fill. Lord, grant me courage Lord, grant me strength Grant me, compassion That I may be Your heart today.

Available Suppliers in the Philippines
One of our professors mentioned an economist’s prediction of how the Philippines’ economy can rise to be 16th in the world. Then, a classmate of mine reacted with a look of disdain and started shaking her head. Will this negative attitude get anyone anywhere? If we are to receive such a gesture from our parents, professors or others who are to support what we do in our lives and...

There are new things that I have discovered recently, and new thoughts and I feel like this is just right. I should trust myself or my way of being to lead me to decisions that will bring me to further self-fulfillment. What purpose is there to doubt. I still believe that all things happen for a reason. And that each somehow integrate to becoming useful for different aspects of my life.

Hide & Seek
Defining elements of majestic architecture of the older days: Ornamentation & Craft Play of Light Open Space Framing Scale Rhythm & Patterns Concept: Semiotics But there needs to be a new set of distinguishing elements to render identity and character to what space is left. I need those defined that I may find identity in my molding of special and valued places.
Addition and Subtraction
The past entries of 2011 have been all about discovering and expression through others. It has also been considered as an outlet to thoughts and feelings, my very own personal SOTAF environment which I may track. I had re-acquainted myself with the various interests I had lost touch of. Now that certain questions have been answered, and solutions have been provided for, I need to embark on a...

Why is it that I have been afraid to grab opportunity? Is it perhaps that sense still of minimizing and simplifying what makes up my life? Getting rid of the unnecessary and organizing?
Where are the Filipino Architects?
How much of our skyline is shaped by Filipino architects and designers? ..With World Architecture Day coming in October …shouldn’t we ask whether globalization in architecture is really any good? …why is it that local design conulstants have less and less say in the way we built Filipino buildings, homes, cities and landscapes? here’s an article I wrote five years ago...
Something has changed within me, something is not the same.
I feel that the path for self-learning must start; the more and more I think about it… I realize that I am not satisfied with what is required, or the mindset that seems to be building due to both myself and the educational atmosphere in which I have been in. Perhaps a new type of therapy must take place. And this may finally involve the aching neglected desire of acquiring a sense of...
Make things right. Make it mine.
Lead me Lord, Even though at times I never go along my way, help me take the right direction, take Your road. Lead me Lord and never leave my side - all my days, all my life.

STILL SO MUCH TO LEARN!
Take it easy. One step at a time. One weekend at a time. One day at a time. One task at a time. Nothing gets done just by thinking, and nothing gets done by vague thoughts either. Find center, balance, grace. Focus.

Prayer of Generosity
Dearest Lord, Teach me to be generous. Teach me to serve You as I should. To give and not to count the cost, to fight and not to heed the wounds. To toil and not to seek for rest, to labor and ask not for reward. Save that of knowing that I do, Your Most Holy Will.
My dad, wondering out loud to my mom. “Even if you give everything you can, you are still hounded for all that you do.” (Looks at mom then looks at me) “Must drama be demanded than real action?”
