EUTS: everything under the sun

All Stories Revealed Under The Sun

Fun Starts at School, My Idea of Fun

What is your IDEA of FUN? A question that entails a meaningful story

When I was in grade school, our teacher told us a story about this teenager and it started with a line “I’m happy, I am now 10 and 5…”. After that, she asked us, how old is the main character of the story, and some of us answered 10 while others said 5, but it’s actually 15. A group of my classmates amazed and asked how come they didn’t notice it. But for me, I had hard time thinking how old really is the character…this phase of guessing and thinking is a delight. Since grade school, I am treating education and schooling as enjoyable pages of a person’s life.  And until now, it is a great FUN and it never fails me to get excited when the season of “papers and pen” comes.
But FUN is not just to go and be happy with some useless stuff. My idea of Fun is to accomplish this F.U.N formula that I believe in and will contribute a lot in our life’s endeavor and struggle.

Finalize your Education
This is my first and foremost priority, not just for my own good but for my life’s satisfaction and success. Success in the way that I would accomplish all my needs and obtain my greatest FUN in life, boosted Career and well-built future family.  The best way to obtain this is to finalize and to take a good education.  I bet everybody knows about it and hope to treat this as part of their FUN life.

On June 16, my 4th year and last year of schooling will start. I’ve been studying for two years already in Cebu Institute of Technology where I always do a FUN learning. Because I enjoyed schooling, I am now ready for the school opening and hopefully, I will spend my FUN school time throughout the semester with ease and smile.

Utilize the Knowledge
How useless would it be, if a person spent many years for good education and in the end, will just sit back and assumed nothing happens?  We must use our earned knowledge. This is our tool outside, in the real world, in the battlefield — this is our shield and with this, we will be successful and the ultimate FUN will be accomplished.

Negate the Unnecessary
In my own dictionary, to negate means to eradicate. Thus, we must eradicate the unnecessary things and happenings in our life in order to obtain the much awaited FUN. How to eradicate those? Well, very simple, focus on the bright side of life, work with it, expand and give it a heavy value to your life, enjoy with it, love it, experience with it and lastly, make FUN with it  —  Just focus and be optimistic.

Remember, Unnecessary is synonymous to unneeded; obviously means, those things which are unnecessary are not needed in our life. Live life to the fullest and focus on the good things around you.

At first people assumed that Gabii sa Kabilin event here in Cebu was a tiresome activity but as the event went on, we, CBS participants felt at ease and had enjoyed the culture and traditions that Cebu has. LEFT: A shot from the Gabii sa Kabilin Event.
RIGHT: By focusing on the output of this event, 6 CBS members aggressively cleaned the walls,posts and nearby buildings at Pari-an St so with Colon and Mabini St. A result was a never-ending FUN of food trip and story telling. Photo: A picture of me cleaning the wall just near the Parian Monuments

FUN doesn’t always mean activities that are enjoyable or amusing. Sometimes, we ignore those people, events or activities in our life which at first, we treat them as hassle bugs. But if we just swim and explore deeply on them, then we will find out that real FUN is there waiting for our embrace. This is how I formulized my idea of Fun, Finalize your Education + Utilize the Knowledge + Negate the Unnecessary = ultimate FUN. How about you?

Twilight Saga: New Moon (Nice but disappointed)

Click for High Resolution Copy

I bet i was right after i watched the 2012 (2009) Movie. My predictions is correct and i still cannot get over with it. Yes, 2012 movie is the best film compared to the Twilight Saga, the New Moon.

Actually, i was expecting some fight scenes between the vampires and werewolves but huh? nope! all are about the “LOVE” issues and twist. Since it was believed to be the best film for this year, a number of Bella and Edward or Bella and Jacob fans lined up to SM City Cebu Ticket booth. But out of my 6 company, i think i am the only one who are not satisfied. I believe Zyra and Blair liked it but i cannot confirmed and maybe Charlie too. Anyhow, i still managed to save some captured quotes, phrases and famous sayings from the New Moon movie, the twilight saga.
