Lately, everything seems to pass by too fast. For one, today marks the last day of March 2013. I can’t believe that one quarter of the year will come to pass a few hours from now. This means that our deadline for our undergraduate thesis is fast approaching as well as our graduation rites. As I recall what happened over the past three months, each event feels like it happened just yesterday or at the latest, a week ago. I am quite nervous whenever I remember that this coming May, I will be starting my first full-time job. Though I am also excited since I know that there will be lots of good things in store for me in my work place. Wish me luck!

Think about the photo before and after, never during. The secret is to take your time. You mustn’t go too fast. The subject must forget about you. Then, however, you must be very quick.Henri Cartier-Bresson

Don’t wish it were easier. Wish you were better.” —Jim Rohn

This was taken almost a year ago somewhere near Manila Bay. My family and I were jogging at around 6AM when I noticed this man. An hour after, he was still there trying to catch fish as his means for living. One of the things that I first noticed in this picture is the sharp contrast between the image of the fisherman and what is reflected on the other side of the water. Along the sidewalk near the bay, there were also vendors who sold fishes, which they claimed as fresh out of the water. It was a weekend but still, this man had to work in order to earn money for his family.

Live with the Fear? Love in spite of the Fear? Wake up every morning knowing that today could be the day on which someone you Loved might be Lost?” — Lars Farf, Excessively Fearful Father and Husband, George Saunders
