• Sundays Together

    October 15, 2012 ishabelle

    Last Sunday, Jeffrey and I spent a whole day in Plantation Bay Resort and Spa. He has always wanted to experience what the place was like. It was so fun. Yes, the package is a bit pricey for most people, but the good thing is that an expensive package meant the place wouldn’t be too crowded. I’m planning to take my mom there too, as a Christmas gift in December. I’m sure she’d love the place as well. We started…

  • Clashes

    October 12, 2012 ishabelle

    There are people in your life you will remember for always. You may never see each other again, but you know that these people have greatly impacted the person you have become. I have so many people to thank the Lord for. As hard as life has been, I think I’d gladly go through all of the hardships again, if it meant I’d still end up where I am now. I will always be thankful for the friends I have…

  • This One’s For You, Teacher Alice…

    October 6, 2012 ishabelle

    A couple of days ago, I lost one of my favorite teachers. Alicia G. Sarmiento When I was in grade school, she has been a huge influence. I always looked forward to the things I learned from her. I didn’t really like school, but I loved learning, and the things I learned from her have made a huge impact on me. I’ve always looked up to her. For me, she was next to perfect. I loved her not only because…

  • What’s the Latest?

    October 5, 2012 ishabelle

    I’m writing a new story, something I hope I can finish this time. While it is no secret that I write, I am ashamed to admit that I have started on several stories but have ended up abandoning them after the first few chapters. There was a time when I’d patiently write down every word I can think about on a notebook. Now that technology has made writing easier, I find it too tedious to even finish a single story.…

  • Saying it Out Loud

    September 30, 2012 ishabelle

    When you love someone, you should tell them. Not because you want them to love you back. Not because you want to make a fool of yourself. Not because you have a right to say so. Not because you know you can stand by your word. Love, in itself, should be said as often as you can. Whether it’s fleeting and momentary or whether its the kind that scars you for life, it should always be said. Whether it’s romantic,…

  • Hypocrisy and Personal Freedom

    September 28, 2012 ishabelle

    I watched Easy A on cable TV earlier tonight. I like that movie. I like the actress. I like the way it shows how difficult high school can be. I never had a hard time in high school, but that’s beside the point because that is not the reason why I am writing this blog now. What I actually want to talk about is the fact that the movie depicts those who are supposed to be the “religious” crowd are…

  • Blind Curves

    September 17, 2012 ishabelle

    I’ve always been the kind of person with no definite life plan. When I was younger, I’ve always wanted to become a doctor. When I grew up, I realized I could never stand the sight of other people’s blood. How was I possibly going to attend to the sick? When I entered college, I was dead sure I’d be enrolling for a bachelor’s degree in accountancy. However, I ended up pursuing Sociology-Anthropology. I spent the next seven years professionally working…

  • Happy Birthday, Brother Dear!

    September 16, 2012 ishabelle

    I am so happy and proud of the person that you have become. I thank God for all the wonderful blessings He has poured on you. I believe no other siblings are as different as we are. We almost never see each other, but that does not mean I care for you any less. I will always be here to help you out in any way I can, in any way you need me to. I can’t wait for the…

  • Good Things Don’t Have to End

    August 30, 2012 ishabelle

    When I started this blog in 2009, I never imagined it would gain readership. I only wanted something where I could write about what I wanted and post some of the works that I’ve done. There was a time when this blog did really well and had many readers. Joining poetry groups really helped. My blog was noticed. My poems were noticed. Sadly, though, I became too busy to even spend a couple of minutes on the blog, much less…

  • To Lucky Firsts and New Beginnings

    August 29, 2012 ishabelle

    I am so happy to have finally made a decision to have a Chapter Two for my blog, Chocolate High. For the past couple of years, I’ve been hot and cold on my WP blog. I have, in fact, neglected it for several months. It’s not because I did not want to write. It’s just I felt like most of the things I have blogged about before does not connect to the way my life’s running this time. I am…
