Ready...set....."Oh No"

Hey bloggers, those snapshots are taken yesterday, December 20, 2010 for our yearbook. I don't know if I should be happy with the fact that if I pass all the subjects, I will soon be graduating and leaving college and my alma matter, and weeks from now I would be 20 years old.Ironic right? If ever theres one thing that I wanted to invent now, it would be a time machine. I wanna travel through time and go back to the past and stay there forever. That would be one of my greatest wishes. Theres really something in the past that I have the obsession to move back there. There are just things or events that I wanted to change in the past. I mean lots and lots of things. The things that I did but I don't have to, and the things I never did but I really have to. Its like the commission and omission. The things I should have committed myself to, and the things that I should have omitted .  From pre school to college, and everyday I always remember the previous days wherein these phrases always pop out my mind " I should have done that" or " I shouldn't have done that". I remember one of my favorite instructors would tell us " Those who care for the future knows how to handle the present" I feel guilty with that statement because all I ever think is the past. But hey! theres the future waiting for me. Then I came to realize that true, the past is real but we don't have look back at it like it would determine the future. Because its the present that would determine the future and its also the present that makes up the past. But the question is, am I ready for the future? Am I handling the present well? that sounds like a buzz. Actually I don't know if I am but all I know is that I should be and I would be. Here are some quotes that I got from famous people.

The future depends on what we do in the present. -
 Mahatma Gandhi

If you would create something,

you must be something.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Every artist was first an amateur.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

The more difficulties one has to encounter,

 within and without, 

the more significant and the higher in inspiration his life will be.

Horace Bushnell

Life has no smooth road for any of us; and in the bracing atmosphere of a high aim the very roughness stimulates the climber to steadier steps, till the legend, over steep ways to the stars, fulfills itself. 
W. C. Doane
Experience is the child of thought, and thought is the child of action.
Benjamin Disraeli

Men do less than they ought,
unless they do all they can.
Thomas Carlyle

Bangkok Fun

These are some of the snaps I got in Bangkok. We stayed there for two days and one night. All we did was a little shopping and a lot of eating . We did not visit the spots there due to lack of time and planning. But it was fine, I had fun and most of all I learned the virtue of being flexible to other people specially if you dont understand a word they speak.
