While viewing my friend jha's multiply account I found this picture:

Students getting ready for the last passage at the Arch of the Centuries with the magnificent UST Main Building in the background

Wow! was my instant reaction. It was really amazing. The person, Jesse Herrera, who took the picture is a genius. The picture was taken last March 23, 2007 during our Baccalaureate Mass.

Baccalaureate Mass. As cited in wikipedia, baccalaureate is "a farewell address in the form of a sermon delivered to a graduating class". And what was the sermon about again?? It was about a lot of things but the topic that was retained on my brain is all about change.

Another video about the events that took place during the Baccalaureate

During our baccalaureate mass, I'm feeling mixed emotions. I felt happy and relieved that finally all my efforts were paid off but at the same time I was sad and uncertain. Change. Another chapter of my life has ended and another one is about to begin. After leaving the walls of my university what's next? Honestly, I do not know. Sometimes saying goodbye to the things that we have grown accustomed with is really dreading but we don't have a choice but to go on with our life unless you wanted to end it. If only we can rewind our life then what I'd be doing right now is going back to the days when I was a kid, innocent, have high hopes, and really happy but then again reality bites... we can't do that. There are no rewinds or even fast forwards only play... and we have to play it right.

I recall a statement on the "Interview with God" presentation which was shown during our retreat in Caleruega. Here is the Lord's reply when He was asked what surprises him most about humankind:

That they get bored with childhood,
they rush to grow up, and then
long to be children again.

That by thinking anxiously about the future,
they forget the present,
such that they live in neither
the present nor the future.

Change is inevitable. We have to embrace it.

Best Moments with IM2007

Now that graduation is just a few days away this is the perfect time to have a trip down memory lane and cherish the wonderful moments with my classmates. I never thought that college could be this fun! It is true we had a lot of difficulties in school especially during our 3rd and 4th year but there's never a dull moment whenever I'm with my friends. I miss you guys already! =(

I wanted to show my appreciation so I made this video. There are so many pictures and I really had a hard time choosing what to include in this video. Check out the video. I hope you'll like it. =)

Also, please do check out this video (please click here) that my friend Janine made.

Photos of the Recent Lunar Eclipse

I got these amazing photos of the recent total lunar eclipse from various websites. Lunar eclipse occurs when the earth lies between the sun and the moon, so earth's shadow darkens the moon. It can only happen when the moon is full. It is said that lunar eclipse occurs at least two times a year. The recent eclipse by the way was the first total lunar eclipse in almost three years. The next one will occur on August 28, 2007.

This photo was captured by Associated Press. A Lunar Eclipse is seen by the Big Ben in London, Saturday, March 3, 2007.

This is another photo by AP. Older Projection of a lunar eclipse is seen on the radome covering of the observatory in Bochum Sundern, western Germany, Saturday, March 3, 2007. Because of bad weather conditions visitors could not observe the entire shading of the moon at midnight.

This photo was taken by Reuters. The moon is pictured behind a sculpture of the Cathedrale of Lausanne during a lunar eclipse in Lausanne March 3, 2007.
