I am not a child anymore. But what I
can do is to journey you through my childhood experiences and how I thought about it then. So, while I open my diaries and start writing and reminiscing about all my entries, you just sit back, read, learn, and enjoy. :)

Road Motorcycle Runover

Hello People!

Yes, I am quite glad to say that I'm back! I decided NaNo was too much pressure and I hardly have time these days due to my busy work schedule, so I quit! :) Expect lesser posts from me though, but at least once a week. My grandfather rode the boat to another place yesterday, he had to attend the funeral of his cousin who was in his late 70s. His cousin's cause of death? Hit by a speeding motorcycle.

Which brings us to the third time CherryBlossom saved my life. 6th Grade, on my way to school, I skipped down the road happily, fare in my pocket, and bag in hand. Upon reaching the highway, I had to cross the road to ride to school. By then I was pretty confident in my crossing the road skills and didn't use the nearby sky-walk at all. Left, Right, clear. I crossed the first lane, following a lady to my left who was also crossing the road. On my right, I saw a group of vehicles coming, and the lady started crossing hurriedly again. Pressured of having to think quickly, I decided at the last minute to follow the lady, thinking that I could make it even though the group of vehicles were closing in fast. I was wrong.

Halfway through the lane, the motorcycles leading the group of vehicles that included buses, cars, jeepneys, etc. was running very near, one of the rider's shoulders hit mine. He was thrown of the motorcycle and I was thrown back on to the road. 

Luckily, no one was seriously hurt. The driver (a guy in his early adulthood, I bet) and his motorcycle were on the road, but still talking and not injured. (If he was, I didn't notice.) And me? I was a bit shocked and helped up by some people, most of them already talking about bringing me to the hospital. I sat down at the side of the road, my leg still shaking and can hardly get up.

I refused because I knew my grandparents would get angry and I didn't want to let them know, so I just asked to brought to my house, which one of the people kindly did.

I had to tell my grandparents about it sometime later though, but i'm just glad I didn't end up dying.

Thank You CherryBlossom!

The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him,
   and he delivers them.

One Lovely Blog Award

 Another Award?! Thanks a bunch Sarah, I loff you for this. :)

I am now passing this award to other deserving bloggers who has gifts of writing lovely blog posts. So please take note of the following guidelines when you get this award:

  • Accept the award. Post it on your blog with the name of the person who has granted the award and his or her blog link.
  • Pay it forward to 15 other bloggers that you have newly discovered.
  • Contact those blog owners and let them know they’ve been chosen.
     So here are my 15 lovely bloggers : 

 Yes, well, er...I can't really name some of my followers because I lost track on who is who. :P Nah, just kidding. Drop a comment and I'll add you to the list. If you already have this, well, I'm still giving it to you! :P

To all my followers and droppers, don't hesitate to grab this award. The first ten to do so, I'd add you to the list. And the rest will have to wait for someone else to give you this so that other people will have someone to give to too. Remember, if you're following me and/or dropping a lot, I have already given you permission to grab. Think of it as a free gift, already given, but has to be claimed. So don't hesitate! Drop a comment and I'll add you to the list. :)

Okay, now, on to the explanations.

As you may have noticed, I seem to not be here so often anymore. My drops have lessened because I don't drop as much anymore. But no, I haven't abandoned you! Reason is, have you ever had any of those months when everything seems to be so hectic? Yeah, that's what's going on with me now. I have to sleep like, only five hours a day due to my busy work schedule. Plus, I joined NaNoWriMo. 

Does anybody know what NaNoWriMo is? Well, for those who don't, it means National Novel Writing Month. Every year, at the month of November, writers and non-writers from all over the world get together and aim to write a Novel of 50,000+ words in one month, which is November. So many are in this and many will attempt, but only a few will win. If you reach 50,000+ words by the end of November and submit it in to their website: nanowrimo.org, you will be labeled a winner.

Now, there isn't any guarantee of a prize except the satisfaction of being a winner and the feeling of accomplishment, but many join. You can write about anything actually: ranging from Sci-fi to Drama Nonsense. I'm actually writing some sort of teenage romance/sci-fi sort of thing and it's my first year. I didn't expect it to be this hard. I'm behind like, three days. I still have to try and write 6,000 words to catch up after this. So there, you now know what's keeping me.

But carry on dropping, although I can not say I could drop back until December. Just know that I know you're there. I'll try to squeeze in time to blog here and there but we can never be sure.

Meanwhile, Happy Blogging and God Bless!

Over and Out,
