Like I Can

It would be my last High School Intramurals in five days. Yesterday, I was watching the Behind-the-Scenes of Frozen, and I realized it has been a year since it was shown (and since I've longed to build a snowman). I found out the Juniors took a Diagnostic Test for a college review center, the same test I once took last year. Today, I took my last College Entrance Test. All these have been making me feel quite nostalgic. As a teenager filled with a ton of angst, I've always voiced out my hatred for school. Although, now, I'm quite scared to change my settings. I don't even know if "scared" is the right word. I literally am at loss for words and emotions. Also, to everyone who will be affected by Typhoon Hagupit/Ruby, stay indoors and stay safe!

Life has been nothing but short of amazing. I'm not sure if I simply changed my perspective on things, or what. All I'm sure of is right now that I intend to end this year right. Also, my friend is a brilliant writer, and maybe I'll post one of her writings here soon! It was just so heartfelt and aghh, ineffable. Enjoy this set and the song! (Sharna Bass is forever stunning!!!) Oooh, and Kim's here on my blog again hehe!

Another couple of cheeky photos with Kim is unavoidable. Considering the fact that we've been friends since the summer after 7th grade (due to some certain tween magazine involvement) and actually kept in touch, such a photoshoot is a must. Despite the evident sweat on my part, t'was a memorable shoot! With regards to the title of the song, I quite like the idea of leaving an outline before I die. Instead of a mark, maybe an imprint would do so as to boost the imagination of the others who come after me. So maybe they can fill in whatever outline or idea I made. An odd thought... Nevertheless, hope you enjoy this set!

I Know Write MNL: Inspired By

Find your purpose.

In a world of technology, it's easy to get lost in the hustle and bustle of all the happenings. There are times where it seems like giving up is the only option. It isn't. After all, I did hear that God's delay does not equate to His denial. 

We each have a purpose. We all end up creating some enigmatic idea or advocacy. But we don't know that yet. I don't know what the future has in stake for me, and instead of being paranoid, I try to stay curious. Let your curiosity be that extra push to keep you going.

We must keep ourselves inspired. Let the unknown inspire you. Let the people around you inspire you- but never imitate. Imitation is completely different from inspiration. Let us use others as inspirations to create our own unique and distinct style. Imitation may be the greatest form of flattery, but from that, you may just be robbing someone of something they've worked on for years.

Keep on finding your purpose. I admit, I still don't know mine- but in a way, that's why I keep going. I hope Yannie, Jodie, Arielle, and I were able to help everyone who came to IKWr yesterday be inspired. So never ever forget that inspiration can come from anywhere.

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. (Jeremiah 29:11)
