peaks and friendship 

A group of friends that hikes together, stays together forever! Even when you get at the foot of the mountain knowing there were only eight peaks when there are actually twelve. Our laughter filled the air in Mt. Batulao with some sighs of exhaustion in between. We were speechless when we finally reached the top, partly worn out and partly awed. The twelve peaks were like a test of friendship and I’m so proud we conquered them all. The next day after climbing a mountain, we went to Caleruega Church to pray and reflect a little. It was a weekend well spent with friends.

feelings & adventure

Knowing yet never being prepared is an adventure in itself. Even if you know what’s gonna happen, I think you can never prepare your feelings; I can attest to that.

Our feelings have their own life, and they create their own adventures. Sometimes they wanna play with us and sometimes they unite with our hearts. They also make us wonder at times if a certain feeling is ever ours.

It makes me think if the word ‘prepared’ really exists. Maybe it’s just an illusion to calm us down.
