7 Unique Summer Classes To Try
Are you tired of the same old boring summer activities that you're constantly doing every summer? Piano lessons, voice lessons, swimming classes, and the same old sport and art workshops are great and all but summer is the time to be more adventurous. You're given this insane amount of time to do things you can never do while at school. So I encourage you to use this time to do something you've never done before. Try something unique, something you never thought of doing, something like the list of classes down below.
- Baristas Workshop
Ever wonder what it would be like to be that barista in your favorite coffee shop and make the most fabulous drinks? Well, now you can stop the daydreaming and make those drinks a reality. The Barista and Coffee Academy of Asia offers courses that are sure to teach you how to brew everything from coffees to teas. Soon enough, you might be opening your own mini café with your own amazing drinks.

- Archery Lessons
Don't you want to pull off a Katniss Everdeen and be the girl on fire? You may not be a star of a rebellion and have two incredibly gorgeous boys falling all over you, but you may be one step closer to the dream by being an awesome fighter and learning how to shoot like her. The Archery Academy is offering a summer program with 2 hour classes, 3 times a week for you to gain the skills you need to be an archer! It’s a little daunting and pretty difficult but who’s to say you’re not up for the challenge?

- Diving Lessons
The beach is a lovely place to be during the summer but for those who are seeking a more interesting and exciting experience, I suggest for you to go beyond the sandy shores and into the deep blue. There is just something magical about being so close to the creatures under the sea. It’s an experience like no other. PADI offers courses for those who want to see such wonders that the ocean offers. Their courses range from the kinds of terrain you want to explore and the kind of diver you want to be.

- Programming Classes
Who says that a girl can’t code or build robots? Who says that a girl can’t be as impactful in the world of science the way a boy can? You can change that stereotype by trying out these programming classes at the Power Mac Center where they offer classes that range from basic electronic engineering to game design to even robotics programming and so much more. Their programs are for the girls who are up for a technological challenge. And whether or not you think you’re gifted in the sciences; I suggest you try it. You never know what you’ll enjoy if you don’t try it at least once.
- Boxing/ Martial Arts Classes
This class is for the girl who can kick some major butt plus it's a fun way to reach your #fitnessgoals this summer. It’s also somewhat of a stress reliever, taking out all that negative energy into a punching bag while learning self-defense. Learning how to fight back emotionally is vital but learning also how to defend yourself in harsh situations that require physical strength is very important too.

- Makeup Classes
Have a little more creativity this summer by learning how to paint the most beautiful canvas on earth: your face. Seriously, learning how to use makeup is a skill that could be very useful and save you a lot of money instead of hiring someone to paint your face. It's also a very underappreciated form of art where you are able to see people transform drastically. You can learn to do that at the HD Makeup Academy.

- Surfing Lessons
If you really want to spice up your summer, take on the heat and ride a few waves. Learning how to surf is not only fun and exhilarating but it will also be able to teach you a great deal of physical balance and a lot of patience. It's not going to be easy but when you're finally surfing along the coastline on a beach, it'll be total worth it! Club Manila East offers classes.

these sheets that exactly remind me of how I gushed in between my pillow and space you filled in the longing of my burned sorrow put smile to my sober face just like how a three year old receive her lollipop
i searched you everywhere and here you are laying down beside me in my imagination the walls that our screens built a boundary and an obvious message that says i can never have you because you wear clerical shirt and obviously you loved someone else before me
oh god, do I really want this forbidden love? that only exist in my imagination? that only exist through my words? would you, meine liebling, notice me and my art one second? because I am dying to say I love you.
A Simple Learner Who's a Great Pretender
Maybe I'm just a learner, not a weirdo. A learner that knows how to listen and pretend. A simple learner who's a great pretender. Pretending to be slightly dumb enough not to be judged and criticized by those who do not appreciate my existence. We surround ourselves with people who's levels are either beyond or below our intellectual behavior, because as for reality, people may use you either for their success or your downfall. Since then, people tend to judge someone who has an intellect with things they shouldn't be. Making them a criticizer, and most of all, calling them weird.
Honestly, I'm one of this "weirdo" who actually loves to learn things, and for the record, I'm bullied and stressed out for making myself not to learn more and go with the flow to dumbness I had. Have you ever feel being assigned to some task where you know every process to make it easier and faster to finish but turns out to hesitate to voice out because some of your mates put themselves in charge. There are times where I know what to do, what to say, or how to react, but kept myself silent and pretend not to know anything that may help us. Maybe it's a good thing to just go with their ideas and learn from their perspectives, but sometimes you can't control it and says something, and once again called to be a weirdo and let you finish the work by yourself.
It's annoying that you only know one process yet they gave you the whole work and let you finish it by yourself because they insist that "MAGALING KA DIBA?". It's not your fault being an intellectual person, knowing such things that may help you to pursue your dreams, and have the basic knowledge about something. You don't need to know everything, just the basics. And as for those people who do not appreciate your existence, let them be and continue what's the best for you. In some cases, you'll be annoyed by this but most of the time you'll be thankful for it. Not for now but maybe later. Just be yourself either a weirdo, a great pretender, or a simple learner, and always remember to lower your voice and behavior because no one loves that.
Just be a great pretender not to hear any runts and be a good learner that appreciates everything. It's out of nowhere thoughts of mine, but simply I leave you this my favorite life quotation; "Don't introduce yourself, Let your success introduce you"
Dear me in six years, I wonder how life will treat you when you’re already 26 years old. Will you be financially stable? Will you be working in an advertising agency while pursuing everything about the arts? Will you be doing freelancing and living in a condo by then? I don’t know since things are very uncertain. I hope by the time you graduate from college and face the real meaning of the world, you’ll know what the real purpose of doing and living in the art will be.
I know it’s been so tough ever since you turned 20 but that’s how life works, I guess. There will be a lot of hopes and trials, breakdowns, and breakthroughs but I have high hopes of you becoming the better version of yourself. You always do, though. You were never a quitter. Making decisions is getting harder and harder as you grow but I hope it doesn’t make you stop doing what you really love to do. You will face different people with different perspectives. You will feel like a stranger once again, it’s like you were back in your freshmen year. It’s going to be tougher than you’ve expected but you can do it. I believe you can.
Most of the time, people's perception of us as a strong person makes us feel that we are not entitled to be vulnerable because they might be disappointed for seeing our weak spots. And so when we are hurting, we are often scared of extreme emotions and so bury our feelings. We deny them, trying to avoid the pain we feel.
But by doing that, we are just allowing it to come back to us and haunt us. And when it comes back, it might be stronger and it will be harder for us to get over it than when we faced them first. I realized it just now that facing those emotions will scare them until they're gone. The saying 'Let it hurt until it hurts no more' goes true. Admitting your pain to yourself doesn't make you weak. It only proves that you are strong enough to acknowledge such extreme emotions without avoiding them. We are humans and it's okay if we hurt sometimes.
Before, sliding over the rainbows
Now, our hearts are bruised
Days once full of love and laughter
Became dawns of forfeited ever after
Smiles that bring ticklish sensations
Turned to cold question and answer
Figuring who would be the next instructor
The queen’s awake
Grappling to the happiness that the sorrow and sadness take
Going back to all the promises he couldn’t make
Poetry #2: YOUR VOICE
When you talk, your voice brightens my days. You provide me comfort in all the little things that you do. Your deep and mellow voice sends a tingling feeling inside me that makes me want to keep you in my life. I love talking to you every time, every day, every night and every minute if I could. You're someone just simply amazing.
