Make a Difference...

I actually shouldn't be online but oh well... I'm procrastinating again. Got tons of homeworks and exam preparations to do but her I am checking my accounts, Writing on my blog and doing unnecessary things.^^Nyahaha. Well it can't be helped especially when your at home.



Anyways...Here goes...I was watching the "Oprah" show this morning {It's actually one of my favorite T.V. Shows because I learn a lot from it and I LOVE OPRAH TOO of course..^^} and then I was surprised who their guest was. It was Former President Bill Clinton. Oprah was promoting Ex-president Bill Clinton's book entitled "Giving"...

After hearing a few excerpts of it from Oprah I really wanted to read it. So imma try and buy one when I get too..Nyahaha. Anyway, I couldn't finish the last book I was reading. The book entitled "The Art of War." It was featured on my last post {The post before this}. I couldn't finish it because it was too hard for me to understand. Not for my age I guess...

And in the show they also featured "Oprah's Angel Network Foundation's" Achievements. And the achievements they've made for years was a "WOWer!!!" {Got this word from Oprah}. "Oprah's Angel Network Foundation" is inspired by a little girl who started collecting pennies through her neighborhood 10 years ago. And that girl's very big now. She has collected over 6 million $ in penny.

They also featured the Kiva.org. It is a loaning website. That let's 3rd World Countries Entrepreneur's get loans from people who are very willing to loan. You can loan people starting with 25$. W/ just a little amount of money that you loan them you can change lives.

We really can make a difference.^^ Nyahaha.^^ You should try and make a difference to make this world a better place.

Weeee... It's one of my favorite colors and the description really suits me well. Take the Quiz too. And know more about yourself.

A Foreigner of Our Own Land.

Yesterday, Friday afternoon, our school's High School Boys Varsity had a game Versus the High School Varsity Boys of Micah. The game was held in Faith Academy's Soccer Field. These two schools, Micah and Faith Academy are both International Schools. So I was kindda nervous about the game. The very moment I entered Faith Academy's Campus I felt like an alien. It was Davao but we're so outnumbered by foreigners, Americans, Malaysians, Korean. I felt like a foreigner of My Own Land, Our Own Land.

Every time I hear them talk and converse with each other in fluent English I can't help but say, "Wow!" It's not that I don't know how to speak in English but it's just that they've got this different slang accent. And Americans are naturally tall. Yes, They were all tall and every time they kick the ball it's goes half way through the whole field. Maybe that was one of the reasons why they won the game yesterday.

The game was pretty much exciting but aside from that we also got some insults. Well, maybe it wasn't much of an insult for the American Player who said it but I wouldn't want to judge him though or any American or foreigner. He said, "I don't remember Filipinos coz they're faces are very common.." Yes! He said that, and in front of a Filipino. It was kindda harsh. But what do we do. Nothing. Keep our mouths shut and just say our opinions later.

Aside from that Americans have really unique personalities. Very different from Filipinos. We met this Half Canadian, Half Filipino girl named Karen. She's 12 and she's really very hyper. But I wonder why she talks by herself. When my classmates arrived she was playing in the swing and then when they approached they observed she was talking to herself. after awhile my friends played soccer with her. Then during the game she just suddenly picked the ball up and started singing and dancing. Then we didn't know how to respond so we decided to just go along with her. Then we started singing until it became a showdown. And at first she wasn't talking and paying attention to us who were obviously Filipinos but only to our other classmate who had a Spanish blood because she really looks like a foreigner.

I'm not labeling the Americans but maybe just some Americans esp. those we've met yesterday.They were quite boastful and they think very highly of themselves. Maybe for them it is a normal thing. So if you meet an American expect these kinds of things. They're quite insensitive but maybe we should try to understand.
