Moving On With A Whole Heart

It has always been “moving on with a broken heart”. But, not for some people.
Moving on with a broken heart brings misery, bitterness, and defeat. Moving on with a whole heart is somehow a different story.

One can start mending a frail heart which has been holding on for too long. It may have taken a thousand years for the heart to hope on something- which might, could, or should have been, but sometimes all it needs is an answer. Yes or no. Continue, pause, or stop.

Thank you- the heavens and the angels might have played a different music this time. Really, an answered prayer is God given and purposely driven. If you are in a situation where your heart is feeling stronger and healthier, then you should be happy. Move on, move on. It may take a day, a week, or a month, but hey, at least, this is a new beginning.

Happy Birthday Irine!

Our friendship started during our first hike at Santa Paula. You were a stranger and so was I. We made it easy for this friendship to blossom. You were smart, hyperactive, and articulate. I was lethargic and recovering from a broken wishbone. How can I forget your encounter with the police when you were trying to save me from my sleepiness on the freeway? 

Thank good Lord for someone like Irine. 

May you be more blessed than you could ever imagine. Stay young and vibrant. Cheers to more hikes, nightouts, artwalks, and to our future endeavors! Happy Birthday Irine.

Occidental College

Few blocks away from our apartment lies a secluded, peaceful, and beautiful campus that is Occidental College (Oxy). Right on the hill top area of Eagle Rock, you can have a great view of the Glendale and San Fernando area. Many young and vibrant young professionals choose to live in Eagle Rock (voted as one of the best places for young professionals to live) because of its convenient location. Few minutes aways from Burbank, Glendale, Pasadena, and Downtown LA. If you are considering to study and work at the same time then Eagle Rock might be a good location for you. Plus, Occidental College is a record- breaking school. Yes, even Pres. Barack Obama studied here sometime in his younger years.

As a local at Eagle Rock, I have lived comfortably for the past five years. It’s a home for me now. No matter where I go in town, my body still craves for this humble community. Wouldn’t trade it for another place rather than San Francisco. (To be continued.)

Memorial Day Weekend 2014

Memorial Day is one of the most celebrated holidays in the United States. It’s a time where Americans go to the beach, have picnics, take long drives, or just get drunk somewhere. I choose to celebrate it more with meaning this year. I have been so blessed lately and now that we’re almost on the middle of the year, I am more driven to complete it rightfully. My dad has been working 8 hours a day lately and my sister has been good on household chores. I think it’s time for us to take an adventure together. My dad wants to go to Vegas but we decided to just go somewhere near coz were on a tight budget. Maybe Malibu or Hermosa beach are good options tomorrow. Again, this holiday is meant to be celebrated with loved ones and friends. We also want to thank the soldiers of the United states for fighting our freedom. We owe them our security and the strength of the US allied forces. Happy Memorial Day everyone!
