Grace List

I often look at my "to do list" and muse about how many of them I haven't crushed out yet and when I will be able to do them all. But come to think of it, there are so many things I have done but haven't acknowledged. So I have written this list of graces that I have been blessed with. This is my list of "Things I did which I never imagined I could do".

  1. Become the director of a stage play  (for our Theater 102 class with a flat 1 grade.)

  4. See Mark Logan in person -  Araw ng Sibugay. Ipil. June 2007.

  11. To go over-the-bakod at my boarding house at Ipil when I lost my key for the gate. (Haha! that was really funny! at 2am too! I made sure that I climb it very fast and that  nobody was passing by. Or else I would have been mistaken for a thief.) 
  12. To survive Sir Jaime. (hehe!)
  13. To organize events - (thank you SFC Creative Team!)
  14. To deliver quite a lot of talks - (maximum audience was 600plus during the PYA St. Paul Culmination)

That Alden would become more courageous in his pursuit.(We are always communicating and he reports to me his whereabouts).
