Sheila Tamayao. 17. MNL. Bedan.
Whenever I feel alone
I read a book of my own
It takes me to my special zone
Like a place of outmost love and peace is shown
To my life, it adds another piece of me
Sparks my whole world, incredibly
Burning is my passion and desire
It adds logs into the burning fire
In moments of despair
My books are my friends to whom I can share
My deepest feelings
To help me mold my inner being
Love, in many ways
In any type of day
To books that helps me
To be successful as I embark on my wonderful journey
I’m not used in commuting alone because I’m scared and paranoid about what might happen to me and my parents made me get to used to the kind of setup wherein they will send me to the place I’ll go to or fetch me wherever I am or can I just say, they treat me like a baby. Yesterday, I went to school alone and I’ve decided to ride a jeepney because I’ll be late if I would wait for a bus. At the moment when I step up and sit down on the jeepney, my heart beats faster and faster. I’m so nervous and paranoid. At first, the majority of the passengers were women but as we go on, it turned the other way around, the men passengers were more than us and some of them looks suspicious and they really sat beside beside the girls like they want to corner us. I cant do anything but pray. I prayed the rosary until I get to my destination and I’m so blessed because God did not let anything bad happen to me. This incident strengthen my faith much more than before and proved that you can lift up everything to God and must just believe in Him and everything will be okay.
Prayer and work are the access
To reach the peak of success
My inner being is molded
By the bedan core values
To God, I owe myself
He is the redeemer, I cry for help
My faith, my life’s worth
To belong in heaven, my mission here on earth
Spending each and every day like the Father
Will make my heart and soul cleaner
For myself, I have a mission
That is to repay my great nation
Become a hero like my ancestors
A humble citizen like no other
A faithful child of the Almighty
To be a servant of my beloved country
Being a Bedan, Filipino and a Christian
Will mold your personality
To be a better citizen
To have a great nation
Ever since I was a kid, I always wanted to have a fairytale themed debut. I want to be, feel and be treated like a princess even just for one night and all the important and special people in my life will be there to celebrate with me the significant moment in my life. The place will be full of sparkling and pastel colored things and flowers. My guests will wear their best suit. And I will walk down in the staircase wearing my elegant gown while all lights are off and the only thing lighted are the candles and spotlight focusing on me. That night will be so magical.
I hope my dream can turn into a reality. I still have three months before my special day. I cant put all my ideas into words but ahhhh Im so excited!!!
Have you ever asked yourself, “Who am I?” This has to be one of the most common question that is always on my mind. It’s just a simple question but hard to answer. I can contemplate on this seemingly simple question for years without establishing who I am as a person and my purpose here on earth.Each one of us has his/her own personality and characteristics that make us unique from others. Meeting new people and knowing them not just by their names is one way to broaden one’s horizons, create new ideas and share it with other people. I can say that my life is full of meaningful relationships and blissful memories.
I will start off with my name, Sheila Tamayao. I am a simple girl that have big dreams in life and will do whatever it takes just to reach for my dreams. After all the years, there is one thing I know that I am sure of; my experiences in life at a very young age have made a big impact in who I am now and who I will be in the future. My parents are somewhat perfectionist. They would expect me to exceed in everything ranging from getting good grades in school to becoming a successful person in life. My life as a daughter was a very challenging but a rewarding one. As time goes by, I did not realize the many lessons that I was learning, or the importance of how much I would carry them throughout my life. I was taught by my parents that there is no shortcuts in life and anything you want to achieve, you must go on the hard way. I am learning that in life there can be downfalls sometimes and I just have to put myself up and continue to move on.
