Anim na dekadang nakibahagi sa bawat tahanan.
Ang sayang hatid ng kaniyang taglay na talento,
Hindi matutumbasan ng kahit anumang bagay sa mundo.
Binangon mo ang komedya sa Pilipinas.
Pinuno ng halakhak ang labi ng bawat isa.
Ngayong ikaw ay nasa kamay na Niya,
Ang ibinahagi mong Saya,
ang magiging sandata namin sa kalungkutan.
Gaya nga ng sabi mo,
“Mawala man ako sa mundo,
Pindutin niyo lang ang Play button, magkakasama ulit tayo.”
Alaala mo’y patuloy na magiging buhay sa aming puso.
Ihemplo ka ng tunay na Pilipino,
Mabigat man ang problema’y, nakangiti pa rin nang Buong-buo.
Salamat,Ginoong RODOLFO “DOLPHY” VERA QUIZON.

Salamat sa pagiging bahagi ng buhay naming mga PINOY.
After four long years of hard work, perseverance, and determination, another chapter of my life closes and the birth of a new one will soon come to pass. New stories to tell, new faces to meet, new environment to live in, and new challenges to face and overcome. It feels good to know that after those years of sacrifices, I’m already a professional. Yet, it’s so sad to leave, and to adjust with what’s new in store for me. It’s like playing an RPG wherein you have to collect and gain experience points to advance in the next level. The consequence of leveling up is that, you always have to start anew; you always have to continue. And it’s always hard in the beginning.
Though for some, high school days were the best days in life, for me it was in College. My high school days brought me friends, experiences and happy moments. My College days brought me challenges yet it also brought me life. From those years, I’ve learned many things and I have collected good memories that I’ll surely be treasuring for the rest of my life.
My classmates had given me so much to remember. Those nights when we’re about to go crazy dealing over projects and programs which need to be passed on time. The thesis year, the paper works and defenses. It really was an experience to keep a lifetime. The kiosk wherein not only a laptop is present but a dozen or even more. The classrooms which for years had been our training venue. The rooms 303 and 304 will surely be missed by us along with the Computer Laboratories 1 and 2, our teachers, and friends from the lower years and different courses.
What a journey it has been. Seeing us all reap the fruits of our hardships was a fulfillment. We’d finally reached this point in life wherein new challenges are lurking at our paths and the only way to overcome these is to apply what we’ve learned from years of training. The fight is over but the real battle is impending. We can do this! I’ll miss you guys. I’ll miss the times and the fights we’d won together. Till next time, friends. We’ll walk our separate ways, yet, we will surely meet at some intersections.
December 28, 2012
one of my most unforgettable days in 2012.
a moment with the stars, the moon, and music at the rooftop.
The cool breeze, the silence..
All brought me to several minutes of a peaceful and problem-free life.
Hindi ko mapigilang mag-isip kung bakit minsan, ang tingin ng iba sa Pasko ay isang ordinaryong araw lamang na dadaan sa buhay nila. Kung bakit, kahit isang araw lang ay hindi pa nila magawang isakripisyo para sa kanilang mga mahal sa buhay. Minsan kasi nakukuha pa nilang bigyan ng mas mataas na pagtingin ang ibang bagay. Tunay ngang mahalaga ang salapi, mga kaibigan, at ari-arian pero sa oras ng pangangailangan, malubog ka man sa sari-saring dagok ng buhay, isa lamang ang mag-aahon sa iyo at tatanggap nang buo, ang pamilya.

Paper boats float. They enjoy each moment of them being free. Dancing in ripples of cold, blue water, trying to fight the current with shadows of a murky motive, a renegade. But in a minute or two, the waters try to voraciously devour it. Useless, drowned and leaving no trace of existence, paper boats end up in this tragic story.
Opportunities are like paper boats. When you don’t try extend your arms and grasp them while they’re still floating, like greased lightning, they’ll bid you their final goodbyes.
We can’t deny the fact that for once, we’ve suffered the consequences of ignoring a sweet opportunity. It will really take time for us to forget and move on from the hurtful feelings it brought us, but surely, these regrets will really add-up some spice to our life and help us find what really is worth seizing for.
Dealing with opportunities requires a thorough decision-making. We need to consider things before we make up our minds. It’s not just about finding pleasures which last fleetingly, we need to choose what’s going to bear us long-term happiness and contentment.
I wish every person who has touched my life and has given me so much things to remember happiness. For once, they have seen my importance, believed in what I’m capable of doing, never left me at my worst, and have been a part of the past chapters of my life. Everyday is a new beginning for me, and the urge of making my days and happenings in life worth-remembering is my greatest objective. Trying to live a life away from hatred, greed and envy. Doing things I love the most. Dreaming for much happier tomorrows and waking up with a vision of love, happiness, and positivity. Not all the persons in yesterday’s journey will continue to walk with us as we try to face new challenges and learn from the mistakes we’ll make. Some may risk to find their luck. Some will continue the journey they have started. Meeting us was just a part of their history. On separate ways, we’ll gonna walk with courage, meet new faces, and write down another chapter of life stories and experiences. Our books won’t close as long as we’re living. As long as there’s still air entering our nostrils. As long as our heart’s still beating. To touch someone’s life, to draw a curve of smile on someone’s face. To make their eyes glitter from happiness. To lend a helping hand to those who need an addition to the two who bears burden. To be someone’s heroin in easing the pain they’re suffering. To serve as family to those who have found theirs broken. To help someone reach his ambition. There’s more to life than just seeing ourselves at the peak of a towering mountain of hatred. There are so much more in store for us than just living in a world of pride, anger and emptiness. Let God help you hold your pen correctly. Be grateful for each day He gives you to spend with family and friends. For time will come that they will not be there to feel your love and care. There comes a time that they will close another chapter and start anew or even close the book leaving their adieu. It’s like dreaming of stopping the hands of clock for us not to see the setting sun. For there is this fear inside us of not being fortunate of receiving a new life for tomorrow, having this nightmare of leaving our loved ones ill-equipped. But we must ready ourselves, for not all books end up with a happy-ever after stories like fairy tales do. Live each day as if it is your last and let someone feel your love. Let them find some reasons for you to be missed, when you have reached the last sheet of your life’s book and prepared of writing a period to the last sentence of your story.
When you think you’re already patient, God will add some more hardships to break you not, but to test how strong your faith in Him is.
One semester left before getting a grab of my diploma. It’s been so fast since I first stepped in to College and I could not imagine that in five months time, professionalism is already a part of my standing. Staying at the same institution for more than half a decade, I’ve seen my school’s improvements and I’ve been a witness as it take every single step to positive change.
How I ended up getting Computer Science..
It really didn’t crossed my mind getting this career in College ‘cause I really wanted to be a Computer Engineer when I was still in my earlier years. My parents gave me the autonomy in choosing whatever course I would like to enroll in as long as I know that I could be able to manage my studies well and provided that I won’t be getting a failing grade in any of my subjects. I grasped the challenge and enrolled as Computer Science. But to be honest, I misjudged my capacity upon enrolling in this course, renouncing one of my greatest dreams in life, -to have that “Engr.” placed before my name. :) I have had so many “what ifs” during this time and my fear of getting failed was my fiercest rival. So to feel safe, I’ve got to enroll in this course thinking it was easier, but truth is, I always have to abuse my laptop’s stamina just to have a program running appropriately. I might as well have destroyed a number of PCs to my anger of always getting the same output when I thought I already have the right codes to save the day! Left with no choice of withdrawing my decision, I’ve learned to always bear in mind that I need to love my chosen profession.
Sooner than I thought, after getting merits from hardships, I realized that things will bear you goodness if you would just be sanguine and if you know how to first love what you’re doing. One more thing, always think of striving whenever you wanted to obtain positive outcomes and don’t forget to pray, it really works. I love my everyday-programming life as a Computer Science student! :)

Bawat patak ng luhang nanggagaling sa mata mo ay mayroong halaga at may nais iparating, na kahit dumaan man ang bagyo sa buhay mo, masasaktan ka pero alam mong pagkatapos nito’y uusbong ang matatag mong pagkatao at tatayo ka’t magpapatuloy na harapin ang mga hamon sa buhay mo.
“Kahinaan ang umiyak.” Mga salitang duwag lamang ang nakakaintindi. Hindi nila alam na ang bawat pagluhang nagaganap sa buhay ng isang tao’y nagsisilbing daan upang mas makilala nito ang kaniyang sarili. Kapag nakakakita tayo ng isang masayahing tao, madali tayong mapapaisip na wala siyang kaproble-problema. Ngunit, maaaring ang nakikita natin ay ang resulta na lamang ng isang malakas na lindol na minsa’y yumanig at nagdulot ng isang malaking bitak sa kanyang pagkatao. Minsan nang nadurog nang pinung-pino, nabasag at nagkapira-piraso ngunit, hindi nagatubiling buohin at muling ibalik ang sarili sa dati nitong katayuan.
Lahat ay naaayon sa sarili nitong tiyempo at ang lahat ay nagkakaroon ng kasagutan sa tamang pagkakataon. Matindi man ang mapagdadaanan mong hirap at pasakit, umasa kang ang bawat segundong pumapatak sa orasan ay maghahatid sa iyo sa isang bagay na matagal nang ninanais ng ‘yong puso.
