I FELT YOU LEAVING

I felt you leaving before you said anything. i felt you forgetting my voice and how my laugh would warm your heart. the feeling of my hands tracing the parts of your body you never really liked. the excitement on your face of when my toes were shown and when you get to have me…

A NEW STAR

  There are some people who are meant to stay in our hearts, but not in our lives. I don’t know about you, but the 31 days of December felt like a year all by themselves.  It was a long month and a difficult one.   Last December 13, 2016, my family lost an angel…

IRON

Walking in the direction of a new life, a new school, a new path – I came across a gentleman the school quite talked about. He had the nose of a typical filipino, yet in a way, looked quite foreign to my eyes. He had plump luscious pink lips that grows chapped sometimes. His face,…

FIRST

I didn’t understand people’s excitement of seeing a man until the unexpected moment I laid eyes on him for the first time. As he walked in the pathway, I gazed upon the beauty of his. He walks like a runway model on a high fashion event. His face mimics the grace of that of an…

BEAUTY IN DARKNESS

I first met her in a country I lived in yet was exotic to my nationality. Exotic to her own country. She has always been different, in looks, personality, mentality, and religously, compared to everyone around her. The suns delicate light had just turned the world a-flame with gold when I saw her. She had…

PREPRATION OF ESTERS

The Fischer esterification experiment surprised the researcher greatly and filled him/her with joy in a way. The researcher was surprised to find that many different alcohols mixed with different acids can create various aromas that smell familiar and/or beautiful. Before the whole experiment, the researcher was skeptical about the outcomes of the mixtures. The researcher…

Taking up a sport is a great way to get exercise and meet some new people. Many kinds of sports offer different degrees of exercise, and some are relatively inexpensive to start. Being a Senior High School Student of SSIS-Malarayat, we were given a chance to pick a new sport we would like to have…

IN’TEN’SITY WITH THE KINGS

The tenth foundation week in Stonyhurst Southville International School was filled with multiple events including a benefit concert, sports fest and a fitness event – Zumba. Zumba fitness has quickly grown to one of the most popular group exercise classes on the planet. Zumba fitness is a relatively new fashion which has taken over the fitness…

WHAT IS OUR WORLD MADE UP OF?

“What is the world, our world made up of and what holds it together?” I ask myself. This universe isn’t just some kind of random spark that has fluctuated in an empty void somewhere beyond the space/time continuum. It may be that, but it is also much more than that. Why do so many things…

TREK’KING’ TO TAAL

After checking out from S.O.S Village, an orphanage, on Saturday morning, my classmates, teachers, and I drove to Talisay, Batangas where we visited one of the greatest natural wonder – the Taal Volcano. It has become one of the top tourist destinations in Luzon. Volcanoes are some of the most beautiful features of the Earth, yet they are also…

TAKING A LEAP INTO SCIENCE

When it came to quantum leap, I had to read multiple articles and watch multiple videos to understand the whole concept. And I’m not even sure if I do *laughs*. In one of the articles I read by Karen Wan: “Quantum Leap… what does this mean for you?” (2012) on wordpress itself, I found a…

EVERYTHING IN THE UNIVERSE IS WITHIN US

As I sit at the garden side just outside my house during a breezy night, I wondered about life. Life as a whole – how it was created and how humans were together. A ‘Big Bang’ or thought hit my head. The Big Bang theory is an effort to explain what happened at the very…
