My elementary school teacher was my inspiration to continue in music. She knew how to make everything we learned fun. She gave us hands on experiences with Caribbean instruments. Bongos, congos, and even steel drums if we were in her special steel drum ensemble. I learned how to play a trumpet as well thanks to her. 

Even after I moved on to middle school, I came back occasionally just to see her and the music room. The kids she was with always had a lot of fun that I wish I could still be apart of. 

Now I'm in high school, and last year, it was announced that she would be retiring because she is diagnosed with cancer. I heard the news through my friend, who has a younger sister still in our elementary school. I haven't seen my teacher once since then. I saw her husband, but I didn't want to touch such a subject. 

Recently, it was announced that she was in the hospital. Her cancer reached her lungs. The day I heard the news, I couldn't bring myself to smile. By the end of the day, I just burst into tears. I can't imagine a world without her. 

My friend and I decided to join the organization that's organizing a special tribute for the music teacher. My friend made a decision to call all of our old classmates who played steel drums with us. I decided to fold 1000 cranes for her with friends, each crane symbolizing how many students she's touched.

I did this during Chemistry class the other day. And I realized I haven't posted in a while here, so here you go.  Drawn in pen, and it was hell.

So, both my brothers are going off to college soon. My second oldest brother is going out of state, flying up with my mother and grandma since they want to visit some relatives there. My oldest brother is going four hours away the day after my other brother leaves. 

This leaves me and my dad alone together for about a week. This is why that is the title of this journal: My dad is not eating healthy lately. 

My mom left two weeks ago to go to a seminar, leaving me, my brothers, grandma, and dad. Dad was trusted to feed us. But since he comes home the latest, his go-to dinner is fast food. I won't lie; we ate at a fast food place almost every day. 

I want to help my dad, so I decided I'll make dinner myself this time. However, I can't drive to the store and I don't have too much money. Not to mention that I'll be going to school starting tomorrow. Ugh… 

I will also do the laundry since my grandma does that, but she'll be with my brother and mom. So I'm basically left as the "man of the house" until my dad comes back from work at 6. Oh and my band practice is gonna be hell on my chores… coming back at 9 at night on Tuesdays and 5 on Wednesdays. 

I got a lot on my plate for the next week.

  • Listening to: J.S Bach Partita No. 3
  • Reading: Driving Course Stuff
  • Watching: Not Blue Spring Ride
  • Eating: Not Rice
  • Drinking: Water
I really want to watch it, but I didn't even start. I am a big Kaji Yuki fan and the plot seems nice (like REAL nice!). But I feel like I'm going to have moments where I will cry a lot. 

Really, I am a wimp. I had a hard time bringing myself back to watching "Say 'I Love You'" after episode 8. A really long time. To be exact, over 4 weeks. And I still haven't finished the series!

So if you are willing to help a wimp, can you give me a possibility of me crying on a scale from 1-10?
  • Mood: Neutral
  • Listening to: J.S Bach Partita No. 3
  • Reading: Driving Course Stuff
  • Watching: Pokemon XY
  • Eating: Not Rice
  • Drinking: Water
So if you can't tell, I'm Filipino, which is Asian. And as we all know, a staple in an Asian diet is rice.

Well, I'm allergic to rice. Yes, an Asian is allergic to rice. And let me tell you, it's frustrating. While I try my hardest not to eat rice, everyone else in my family is just passing the rice pot around the table at dinner. So whenever I make dinner, I always make pasta because it's one of the only dishes that my family can't eat rice with.

But I swear I am about to give up on holding myself back!

If you know anything that is a good substitute for rice, I'm begging you to tell me!

trust me this will put a smile on your face, make your day, or help you











Every night , someone thinks about you before


they go to sleep,










At least fifteen people in this

world love you.





The only reason someone would ever hate you is


because they want to be


just like you










There are at least two people in this world that



would die

for


you








You mean the world to someone.





Someone that you don't even know



exists

loves

you.






When you make the biggest mistake ever,


something good comes from it.











When you think the world has turned its back on


you, take a

look.











Always remember the compliments you've received.









Forget the rude remarks.


















So if you are a loving friend, send this

to

everyone on your list


including


the person that sent it to you.



Tonight

at

midnight your true love will

realize


they like



you.










Something good will happen to you between 12 in the morning

and


four o'clock pm


tomorrow,


it could be anywhere . Get ready for the biggest


shock of your

life










If you break this chain YOU will be cursed with


relationship problems


for



the next ten years . Send this to fifteen people


in fifteen minutes !!


Make Someone else's day! Help get a smile on someone's face! Help someone out! ❤ remember that your loved





F.R.I.E.N.D.S. 😉
= Fight for you
= Respect you
= Involve you
