After seeing the end of journey of being as an assistant teacher, I’ve all want to share my blessings that takes me from every chapter has moving within me. This is the part 2 of The tale of assistant teacher.


Love life has moved twice as I’ve reached the mountains. But the roadblock at the end of the road told me to move on. Why was it happened me between being having as an assistant teacher? Was I even told to be a better assistant teacher? Or was it somebody who doesn’t like too much of being noisy adult? I was always talking and talking to myself in a minutes or in an hour. Telling you the truth honestly, some of the lessons I’ve been going through proved my excellence in my journey. I wasn’t noisy as anymore before. I was waiting for someone listening my side of my story. But was it someone who can lean to?


I’ve covered my eyes as I was waiting for my side. I’ve also covered my ears so I won’t listen to the story. When did I stop talking raging nonsense? I’ve full of passion, full of energy and full of hope. All my positive sides wanted telling you I was able telling the truth.


Honestly I wasn’t perfect human as God says in the bible, ‘there is no perfect human in the world.‘ True. But I hope it would allow somebody to tell the truth. All the angels were sending from heaven telling me if I would continue be a humble person. But I didn’t know which one I was suppose to do.


Let me tell you my whole story from the beginning I went through the start of my story:


“The school orientation came over on 10th of June, 2013. And every parent was there to hear from the stories of two teachers, one from preschool who came to teach the preschoolers and one from special education who came to teach special education kids how to handle on their own in the future. And it was a surprise that my bosses told me that they coped with my problems. I did telling them that I’ve had being having with Down syndrome. But they didn’t know with the word of mosaic Down syndrome, trisomy 21. It was a sudden blessing from heaven that I sent here for a mission. And it was all started to be humble from the good beginnings that begun.


I told them that mosaic has two copies of chromosomes is normal and one copy of chromosome has extra set. Which it is why it formed mosaic Down syndrome. Even Dr. Jerome Lejeune discovered before. But holding right there from my chromosome, my knowledge that I learned. I also hope to bring a message to all special parents who helped their special child to grow like I was standing. My two bosses were taking their jobs as school administrator, principal and also being part as an occupational therapist. Then I started to know when will I begin from my job.


The start of classes went by as the school started on 17th of June, every child has own their behavior. Their behavior that my boss told me being part of growing up have to nurturing their talent. Which was it how it handle the special kids? From ADHD, autism, cerebral palsy and even Down syndrome, the four cases I saw from different special kids in the classroom. I’ve learned new things that I discovered. But my world shook at the back of my mind what needs to learn must have extra careful. To set aside, the nutrition month was coming, the month of July. And there was an interns. And an interns from MCU were optometrist graduates. They were here to practice their lives. And so my life henceforth held on.


New things I discovered that those of who having had troubles with extra care must know how to overcome. And new discovery must learn how to cope with the problems in the future. And I learned each of trials or problems may come must confront of all details. And I fell in love looking one intern who was my one of my type. But I didn’t mind to fall in love. Because it gave me a new inspiration. And a new inspiration came to build my character. Those things in life were about to unfold the new secrets of love life.


So the nutrition month came finally over. I’ve enjoyed the feeling of being youth again. My boss turned good friend of mine. He was able to know my feelings and my inner strength. I’ve must confronted all the details that my mom didn’t know. The negative came from my mom’s aura. But my positive aura came bigger and bigger. And so to tell you my story, before the vacation nulled me thinking right now, the month of August also came. It swept my thoughts at the back of my head that the livelihood project I was working on failed to my own hands. But I learned the lessons that I must strived back with my own hands. And my boss was right that I’ve had to move on. But the typhoon swept all the problems came in. As we started to rebuild new school ground, we relocated new higher facility and bigger spaces to fill in. But the problem came in.


As the month of September 2013 came in, we handled our first language of the month (buwan ng wika) supposed to held last month of August. If the typhoon didn’t persisting to trouble with us, then the language of the month didn’t have to occur. The event was successful. Some kid won in the competition and some kid won the hearts in the audience. It really captivated the hearts of many students participated in the event. It was a brilliant idea. But the fact 13th of September came in, I felt I didn’t want to leave the kids alone with someone they really wanted to keep with. I never said that I won’t come back. But I promised that I would go back. As you promised one word, you kept it from your actions. If it failed, you were a failure. But failure sometimes took granted to rebuild the trust.


I went to Toronto attending my sister’s wedding with my family. And it was my first time in my life I felt I didn’t sleep the whole trip. I was scared of a whole trip might falling down like a turbulence in the movie. So I felt right from my shoes and my feet. I felt scared. But God alone never leaves us. He kept me awake instead and enjoyed watching movies. I also played some of tetris game. But the fact I’ve enjoyed, I’ve finished 6 movies in my first trip going to Toronto. My sister’s wedding was beautiful. She was dressed like a beautiful princess. And my new brother came to welcome to our new family, my sister’s husband. So I was happy to meet new family. When will I have my own family? When it will stop that my mom would nagging me all the time? But hey, I was blessed to have with them on my life. Then on the way back to the Philippines, I’ve also finished 7 movies and played a little game of tetris.


On the way back to the Philippines after the storm finished before we came in the territory of Philippines, I was happy to see the students again. I was happy and turned to be a responsible adult. And being part as a special adult, a lot of things turned good and bad news came in. The bad news was when the preschool teacher left us without a notice. But I continued to communicate with her until now. And the good news that I became a full-time assistant teacher in the school being also part in the morning classes with the preschool kids. The kids were happy to see me again.


When the September was over, the October came surprisingly knocking to my new blessing – attending a children’s party who someone in DSAPI praised me as well. Her daughter turned one year old. And I met new parents again who also have special child with Down syndrome. I felt blessing to them. Meeting new parents and a special child felt the same way I was raised by own special parents. Then one special education teacher came over at the start of the month of November, a friend of special education teacher who came from one school they attended the same school. It gave me something that knocked to my senses.


After hearing the truth when my boss was asking me that I’ve had a crush to the special education teacher, it was then pushing to my limitations that I must forget my ex-girlfriend. Having going back with my ex-girlfriend was already hard to push on because she was engaging to married someone else. So the December’s Christmas party came over. The Christmas party was success event. And from at the back of my mind played a lot of imaginations before the 2014 came over. The new life succeeded to me that I’ve had a new job – being as an assistant teacher on my fourth job in my resume. And I was happy that I’ve had regular job already, my first one.


2014 came over at the start of January. It was then I realized that something intuition came again for me. I didn’t mind noticing it. But I was afraid to sense it again. But I forgot how to praise myself having with a regular job. Then the troubles came on the month of February 2014. After my parents heard that I’ve had getting a salary from my regular job, the intuition was right. It was my mistake but new lessons that I learned. I stopped from being what it took from my job. I was afraid to let it go and wanted continuing my mission with the students wanting to see me happy again.


The month of March came in, my emotions came and ate my pride. I didn’t know what happened to me. It started to crumble like a rock falling from the mountain or something it never did happening to my life. It was then my intuitions came over. As I sensed it, the ESP or Extra Sensory Projection (sixth sense) has learned throughout my predictions. Before the retreat was going to start soon, I’ve stopped working with them on my final day on 24th of March. From my conscience, I didn’t want to leave them alone but to prosper with my blessings on them. My mom talked about negative things again. She always wanted to have bringing negative things all the time. It was then that I’ve repelled her negatives into positive notes.


The time I’ve stopped working with my load provider before, my mom scrutinized and if the load business crumbled, where will I get the money always spending to sell the cellphone loads of them. I’ve to repelling them. So I thought my positive notes came true. This was the basic truth. Being having with positive life must learn the conscience the truth of positive notes. After I went through all the problems, no negative thoughts would allow entering at the back of my head. It was then I never hesitated. I stopped hesitating. And I didn’t want believing the negative thoughts.”


This was the tale of assistant teacher part 2. It covered the whole story from Assistant’s desk to Assistant’s corner: Going back around. The additions to the story I’ve added have come to seal the words that I brought it up. Lesson number one is never treat negative thoughts at the back of your head. Lesson number two allows you to remember your good deeds, positive mind and fills your hopes and answers. What will you do if you’ve encounter the same fate that I’ve? Don’t treat the negative. Allow positive flowing to your energy chakra.


The second part of conclusion was brought to the end. “Don’t be afraid of your future is awaiting for you, but allow them to come over for you to experience and endure the problems. Let the future handle you and the prosper won’t hurt you but you learn the blessings come knocking to your heart. Remember this as you guide your life alone in the way of beautiful life.

The key of success life is to live peaceful, harmoniously, optimistic and free to open your mind to one of happiness times. I always think free flow at the back of my head never believe to sadness, sorrowful, hurtful or believing to negative thoughts. Seeing my future to unfold will realize how important trials or problems will test me. No matter what makes depressed me, I will stand way out that being having with Down syndrome will be no longer as my label but to act as normal. I am who I am. And I believe in happiness no matter troubles will bring me in.”

~Status message in facebook, January 27, 2014, Tuesday, 8:28 p.m.


It changes my life from the past to what I am standing right now. When I encountered more of my problems before stating I was in depression and frustration times, I was always looking myself down to the mirror before the typhoon in Manila hit last September 26, 2009, Saturday morning. It was then I looked always how I was unchanged looking myself in the mirror. I was thinking at the back of my head I was locking in the cave no wondering that I would ever come back to see the light.


When I saw a light at the end of cave, I always thought that something was missing about myself. It is a matter of acceptance giving myself to change more about myself and to the people who really loves me much. Giving a chance that I have Down syndrome, mosaic Down syndrome that indicates two copies of chromosomes are normal while another extra copy of chromosome has trisomy 21 Down syndrome.


Normally I always not study on my own how to base what is really have to have Down syndrome. When I joined Down Syndrome Association of the Philippines two years ago, the 20th Happy Walk on February 19, 2012. That was Sunday. One rare gift could send to me. And it was a real gift blessing I received from one of my angels I really believed. Angels are my beliefs. And somehow it changes me when they are seeing whether I am doing wrong or I am doing right. I am not perfect who I am used to before or even until now. But I am also a gift from God that He send me to see my visualize my purpose in my life.


I read Purpose Driven Life book before. It was then I realized that book was important to me. But the typhoon washed all the books I loved to read. And one of them is Purpose Driven Life.


My purpose in my life has beginning to change my visions. When I was not able to finish my second choice to digital course in 2006 and until now, I was somehow changed my mindset if I can study again. My third choice today is looking forward to study in special education if I can budget all my savings and turn it all good choice to able looking forward to have a four year course. But on the other side, I will still have my own business creating my unique line – creating more greeting cards in different sizes, pocket books, novels, quotes book and many freshest ideas to make more. And that is how the name of Itsmikki Studio change me as well. But the connection to my wildest dreams if someday will achieve. I will be able to make a movie somehow, or a television show, or something that creates my vision. So I can let other disabilities to work with me as well as the label says that there is no label of being disability allows here on earth.


God always says to me that Jesus Christ will be always our savior to change us, He will be remain to rescue us from the sins we make from him. But we always do what we can do to change us. But it will be my faith to remain as catholic no matter what. I am looking always no matter what you have religion you believe into, the relationship with God is most important.


Seeing no labels as Down syndrome will no longer be part of my life. But I always believe what I can do no matter trials or problems will come after me. The secrets will always open to the truth. And the truth will set you free no matter you have today. And you will see the light at the end of the cave.

Books in the Making

Books in the Making

Books in the Making

I wish I have something to be publish this year. My biggest project I have to make is about writing a book. When you say a book in the making, it is said that you have to beat the deadline or otherwise you’ll end up revising it again your whole book with a lot of grammars, subject verb agreements, etc.


A surprise opportunity I’ve sensing in my dreams. It’s all repetitions. The subconscious related dreams I’ve never had in my life. Well, sort of that I dream all about. The doors for entertainment industry will have to wait for me. Otherwise, I will open other doors to sort my purpose in my life. People will have to try to understand what’s the meaning of fruitful life.


I never have cross in my mind that I would do this. There’s no instant book you will make. It makes you keep ready for your life to unfold. But in a reality world, that’s a sad news thing to hear. Yes, there’s a lot of doubts and fears to recall I’ve read some interesting stories that haven’t publish yet. I have what it takes. But sometimes, it kills my dilemma where I will be going to publish my own book in my own studio name. That’s a real sad news.


On the other hand, society in other countries like the Philippines have sort of something issues. Well it has something you have keeping your alibis. But I don’t judge. It’s their decision to make. I have few friends, some of my life they’re really know me as well. On the other few things, people discriminate me. And I feel a shame to the them. I don’t feel judgmental. What I really want is to make friends a real friends. People have forgotten the fruitful of happiness. Their assistance of helping with others is another I really need to focus. When the world has to know about you, sometimes I stick to my niche. It’s not all about me in my studio articles all the time. Sometimes it has to make senses when you are writing an article.


Okay, let’s go back to number one rule: “Don’t make promises when you are contradicting your promise. You will always have alibis and dilemmas about this.” Sometimes it’s real or surreal.


The dreams will have to wait, and sometimes it needs a break instead. There is no shortcuts or exits in a reality world like this. Publishers, studio writers, copywriters, script writers, produce writers and name all the kind of all positions of being writers have sometimes takes time to do their task to fulfill their day. In the entertainment industry, they are not revolutionizing their stories like here in the Philippines. I want something to do with this entertainment economy. Talk about the politics, I try not to talk about it. Because it’s dirty and it’s not my niche to write about negativity articles. If I have something to write it down, I have an easy task is to write instead. When brainstorming takes place, the opportunity takes my place to fulfill that kind of job instead.


I write on my own niche of recreating book stories. Sometimes my niche of recreating books, it’s much alike in United States, Canada, Australia or Europe. Well, I like literature. Literature loves me so much. I write some interesting new topics. Sometimes new topics comes in variation of adventure, sci-fi, horror, and something else that’s at the back of your head. What can you tell about this kind of Twilight books? This kind of vampire-werewolf love story is sort of adventure with a love story. That is kind one of million girls would love to read. Others want to read about Hunger Games, or read about Percy Jackson books. New children classic books is starting to industrialize new titles such as Diary of a Wimpy Kid. Well, I really like those kind of books.


Back when I was still in my adolescence, I used to read about Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew. But I bought so many books about Hardy Boys. Well, I really liked about detective books including Sherlock Holmes. I read a lot of interesting titles. The last book I’ve read about was The Graveyard Book. If you haven’t read the book, try to buy interesting title that suits your mood. I am not a bookworm, although I love to read interesting topics that suits my mood.


What I also love reading is a comic books. I read about Wolverine, X-Men, Fantastic Four, Archie comics and other interesting titles like Superman, Spiderman, Batman and there is more interesting titles to read about comic books. The sad thing part is that I don’t really buying all of them. I just love to browse the captions, the story lines, the graphics and the contents of a book. Because all of the comic books, I usually turned my head and watched in the television set instead. Talk about my niche of my interesting titles, it might really be handy in the future.


I’m a Filipino enthusiast reader. And also being part of that, I have my condition of chronic illness is called Down syndrome. It’s not a disease. Let me recall you one more time. It’s a genetically rare cases that is found in three copies of chromosomes. It embodies three copies of Down syndrome, and it’s called pure trisomy 21. On my part, I have mosaic trisomy 21. It also explains why I also love to write. I have two copies of normal chromosomes and extra copy of chromosome which it explains why I have being as Down syndrome. Don’t misjudge about my looks. Judge me about my abilities. Judge me about my attitude. But don’t call us the m word or any kind of derogatory words.


The books I’ve written unfinished are The Anthology of Firelava, The Legendary of Firelava, The Legendary of Fireice and The Immunes: Race to Extinction. If I release this four-part books, it will end the story of my main characters, Firelava and Fireice. There are other title book names I am writing about including Negaza, Ang’s Legend and the latest I am making about is the Riders. Negaza is much alike in Dragon Ball series, but it has different theme, plot, story line and the characters also. Ang’s Legend takes the place of werewolves, lycans and vampires. But it doesn’t revolutionize the story. But I’ve added an element of a dragons. Dragons are already in extinction. But Dragons manifests their ages and their skins in their bloodiest war. Their first story is battling their clan to another clan who are dinosaurs. Dragons and dinosaurs are much alike in their manifestation. Enter the vampires, the lycans and the werewolves in the story. Ang’s Legend is starting to unfold new part of breed adventure. I’ve been thinking this kind of adventure to revolutionize the story. And the Riders is about the world of technology of all mean of transportations from bicycles and skateboards to motorcycles, etc. And there’s a lot of division book titles I could dream about.


There are a lot of interesting and revolutionizing the new concept of titles. Well I am not kind of buying my concepts. Instead, someday I want to work in studio in United States, Australia or Europe. Returning back to the Philippines, I might applying this kind of concepts. Right before, I am afraid of working alone in other countries. I have home-sick attitude. Well, sort of that I have to change my attitude. Instead, I continue on my part in my journey.


Books in the making sometimes fusses me at the back of my head, thinking if I make it to my count of my list. This is rare talent or skill that I have. It’s not my immortal being about. It’s all about in my imaginations or brainstorming in the first place. Recreating or revolutionizing the new concept of stories is one of my design projects. It may takes time the whole project will come into another level. And the next project will reveal the soon as possible.


I’m not a perfect writer. I don’t use for other terms. I use it for my own good. And I use it for good purposes. There’s no easy shortcuts or exit in a reality world about this concepts. Recreating some new concept of stories will have to take time leveling up. I am not who you think I should be. But I will take time to use of my imaginations. Imaginations sometimes dream in my brain waves recalling what I write so far. I dream my characters would come alive. Or the story concept will come to blossom. It is never a design. It’s a classic and rare skill.


Love who you are conditionally, take time to pray. Even the mightiest word can take you to another level of imagination. Be simple and be modest.” ~quoted from IMS Ltre. (ItsMikkiStudio Literature)

Introduction to Living being as Down syndrome


I didn’t know back then that I was having with Down syndrome. Little did I know was not that I’ve expected. People around me whether it was my relatives, close friends, elementary friends, high school classmates, college batch mates and new circle of friends were much they really knew about me. I didn’t come in any way of living but as long I was normal at their sight.


They expected me to behave. And they expected me to be one of them. Sooner I’ve realize, the new circle of friends I meet once tells me, “you don’t look like having with Down syndrome.” Then I said to her, a mother that has a son and said, “I have mosaic trisomy 21 Down syndrome.” I was referring to the word of mosaic. When you were going to explain issue of Down syndrome, they were already knowing what the meaning looks like.


Down syndrome has three copies of 21 chromosomes. But mosaic trisomy 21 has only normal two copies of 21 chromosomes and extra 21 chromosomes, meaning it will give the kids and adults with Down syndrome looks like their parents’ face. But sometimes, when it grows other abnormalities, it will give much more happier for those who has blessings around you. I never know this from the start of my life. But as life grows more, I have learn more valuable lessons in my life. I am happier around today than in the past. Thinking at the back of my head would give a little misunderstanding if I won’t forget what I become today.


Seeing one another whether it has Down syndrome, Autism or ADHD, I love to learn each and every day with the valuable lessons. With each kind of disability has deserve to get their rights of authority. Every time I took to learn my self-study about special children or adults with their abnormality study, each lesson had deserved to know how kind of these people with special needs were blessings from the kingdom.


Bible verse:

God didn’t mistake to create people with disabilities so that his mighty works may be displayed in their lives.” ~John 9:3


It was not intentionally God creating us with our mighty skills, whether it has many lessons to be discover for you to know. And we have blessings that will teaches long patience, deep understanding, unconditional love and tender with care.


Many for you may take a while to understand in the span of years to come and it will test your courage. People might not thinking at the back of their head will assume some lesson come in their way. But it will take time to come. Each day has own discovery, each day has lessons and each day doesn’t take your happiness away from their eyes that will teaches your love. I, like myself, also teaches with greater people that loves me and I will help them in a way of teaching how to write well in their minds.


Quote #1:

One day, the day will set your mind how I am living being as Down syndrome show you how I overcome Down syndrome and why Down syndrome chooses me.” ~quoted from IMS Ltre. (ItsMikkiStudio Literature)


The mothers are always the carrier where carrying us to become whether it’s normal or not. It teaches us how to be strong. And my mother also teaches me how I overcome my problems. Because one day when they are gone and when my sisters and my brother will take care of me, I will show them my patience, deep understanding, unconditional love and tender with care. And when they will have their own children, I will also look after them. My future tells me how I will live longer. The Science tells me that mostly with Down syndrome will live in their life span until 60. I will prove them wrong. Because you have to believe yourself mostly us with Down syndrome have blessings and we live legacy in time you will remember us. Don’t be discourage but you have to believe.


Society including the Philippines and other countries has own their organizations with their advocate of their special children or adults have to deserve to know that we are blessings. I may be have a courage but sometimes I also have my own voice to speak. Live longer what it takes. Because sometimes when you are praying whatever your religion is have to seek deep inside of you will be healing us in times of needs. And I believe time will discover your heart to grow more.


Quote #2:

When special children or adults have given to share with their wisdom, their experience will give blessings living being as Down syndrome.” ~quoted from IMS Ltre. (ItsMikkiStudio Literature)


The presence of being with Down syndrome doesn’t give all their matters, it’s what their knowledge has given and proven with their expected life span of age. It is not how age that matters. It gives you more time to believe, to share, to prove and to love one of them. People with any kind of disabilities whether you’re exceptional or not, according to Nick Vujicic, has given blessings that shares bigger audience in the society. I don’t have what it takes, but I believe what I learn from the people I love and love teaches us to be stronger among us.


Stronger relationship with special children or adults has give stronger vision in the organization whether it has many or few circle of friends, it doesn’t take what gives you more wisdom. The knowledge of being living as Down syndrome symbolizes how the vision will take them in a longer love they will receive. And the deeper relationship with them grows and brighten a new beginning of new generation. People will love them and us with disabilities will share the best knowledge of being whether you have disability or not.


Quote #3:

When someone is trying to silent the chromosome with living being with Down syndrome, it is not perfect example. But you only give the life with Down syndrome full of happiness and energy with love.” ~quoted from IMS Ltre. (ItsMikkiStudio Literature)


The scientists in the laboratory last month that I’ve read was not the last time. It only means you are taking the example of full of happiness, wise to say as fruitful of happiness. People will not only saying this but taking grant to put off the chromosome to the test. Let me clear the topic. Some of us has Down syndrome. We are all same cases in nature. Besides with being of Down syndrome, we always believe that it is always a gift from heaven. Then why are you trying to cure the chromosome without knowing the real background of this innocent kids or adults with Down syndrome. People love us seeing unconditional love, long patience to taking care of us and deeper relationship of tender and care.


I am gratitude that I am bless from the heaven. Without a tool or skill, it might be a long time to discover again the real ingredient is called the unconditional love. It happened in the bible too when Jesus cured the person with disability. But it requires for you to understand that every disability around the world is worth to know that love is the main ingredient for everyone to know.

Case no. 2

Insensitive work relationship


Strike me out when someone told me to shut up my last laugh. I always have the same jokes with my other boss as he said. It was not on his jokes, but I also shared with his jokes. My other boss and I were like brothers. We were in closer gap of age of three decades and two years. Hmm…that is interesting to explain the age. It is 32 years. Sometimes I’ve called it the three decades and two years in alphabetical words.


My other boss’s age was three months older than me. He was born on November. But I was born in February. We were like something that cannot break. Somehow I always look to his side of his jokes. And I’ve rarely get sermons from him. But until he called my name, that was my first to hear from him. And he literally called my attention. Because I was having my behavior a human error. I didn’t cope up with this problem. But somehow I lost my focus on my work.


Work relationship comparing from teachers and some other staff were highly sophisticated to me. Among them have rarely had the same comparisons. I hate the comparisons. When you say comparisons, that’s something to do with judging the cover of your book. This is insane but true. And I lost on the way where I can find another job.


Maybe after going to Canada and resuming if I still have my work on my way back, maybe if they can still accept me. Building rapport with parents as my boss said was good. But nonetheless, I have to do improving my performance. Somehow at the back of my head, it was there on my head but I couldn’t think one single word to pop out to my head. Well, normally I really don’t to boast or brag about this. It’s the matter of feelings that count. I don’t need many friends just to help my happiness level up. Or something I would know to make it surely done correctly.


The co-teachers and other staff as well really stabbed my back as well. I won’t call the names to be named here in my articles. It was simply secured and simply annoyed. I don’t know why. I was there already. Almost two months and barely four weeks already before coming to three months on my work, I’ve started really to like my job but until they called my name that I was stubborn to do this and to do that. I wasn’t. Somehow my mind came to burst if I was having alzeimer’s disease. Then I’ve asked my other boss who apparently I really could talk to and said that I also can inherit the genetically disease losing memory one to another. If I may correct or not, just leave a comment at the end of this article.


Somehow along the way, my other boss seemingly was doing good for me. He really treated me like a brother. Maybe if I came along before on their work, they would know better the side of all my problems between love life, family issues, relative issues, financial issues to some never ending issues that I won’t name it any longer.


Crazy as I was, or half away through the universe if I was unavailable seeking for a new clue to solve. Because I am not as a perfect human as anybody does. I may be not as intelligent person, or I may be not as a perfect writer but I could be the one who could tell you if you really need a friend. Then I will be there to help and to rescue you. Because the percentage of the school needs a little comfort towards me.


I am not a superstitious person as well believing something that is not related in life. What I really believe is the creator above, Jesus Christ, the saints and the guardian angels as well. On other side of superstitious, I rarely find interesting in folklore stories sometimes that rarely seen the impossible into possible times. It is compared to fantasy and imaginative characters that you would know to come up the best intentions at the back of your head. Silly as I am thinking at the back of my head knowing not it’s all going back.


I may have my condition as mosaic trisomy 21 Down syndrome. But I am really considering to accept who I am really to become a role model someday. But I never get an intention to grab an opportunity becoming as a teacher. What my real dreams are that I am focus to get it one by one if I really come closer. I am not into rush but in a slow, classic and fashion way to become uneasy to cope with. Or maybe I won’t think at the back of my head that I would become.


Normally at the end of the day, if I smile, I’m always smiling. But I nod my head in other way, then my emotions and my pride will eat me. Then it would become a neutral smile, not as possible to become a negative thoughts. Or some ways will become getting closer to my aspiration dreams. I may be not grab the biggest dream, but I am always dreaming to get one by one step closer at a time.


Possible? At the back of your head, dream bigger. My boss is quite not seemingly happy at the end of the day today. Good luck to my life ahead if I may get a possible wish may come in my way.

My new family


My happiness sometimes exists today when you are having a good community and a good circle of friends. Well mostly in my days are exactly common of my happiness days. My boss and I usually share the same idea of happiness terms.


It was started when I joined the Stand and Walk Therapy Center as an assistant teacher. My salary was basic commodity in my life. It was not necessarily in life that you have had this or that. You have to be a simple guy to walk in the community where you can start to work.


First day or maybe my first week of my work was dramatically changing me as well. My routine was changing me from being as a couch potato to work-acholic. And the best start I’ve had started there was they really accepted who I was to be. The teachers changed me as well. As they knew my condition, my routine became part of my life. I knew it was changing me that well.


But things have changed when someone was to leave and someone was to enter. It was not necessarily to say this. But sometimes the eagerness inside of you wants to say something you really want it to say. My secrets are limited. I’ve overcome being as a secretive. But knowing myself, I also limit my secrets from no one can ever know about something not as necessarily as well.


One month I have lasted that long, my performance level didn’t change. I still managed to catch time to sleep and managed to use of my routine levels. From being facebook addict I was before, being as an online gamer before and being as a console gamer before literally changed my life as well. I was almost changing myself to a better future. My attitude before changed me as well now today. From being self-confessed addicted gamer, I am seriously change myself and my routine today.


I am no longer an addicted gamer today, and plus that I am no longer a facebook user anymore. I can update myself from time to time. But not as always when I am glue to my computer, I always put myself not sleeping entirely in the night. I have a work today plus with my loading business. My boss said to me that I have a potential where I can contribute something for the school important. It is something I find rarely in my life – a perfect new family.


What’s a new family by the way? That’s a good question. And my answer is my work environment. I am really glad that I have family on my back: my two bosses, the secretary and the co-teachers as well. I am considering myself as a lucky person. Don’t get me wrong if I am not right. So tell me if I am really wrong.


My new family is my work environment. Things are changing me as well. And my perspective in my life is also changing me as well. If I continue this as well, my routine in my life today should not considering to change me as well. Because I want some my work to have my loyal in my back whenever I have problems. I can be open-minded but sometimes that I have to be shut up also. Because sometimes I am really that talkative either also in my life.


I have mosaic trisomy 21 Down syndrome. It means that I have partly becoming with disability doesn’t mean that I have to stop there. I am a blessing. And blessing should use in the proper use in life. And so I use it properly. When you have disability, sometimes you care of yourself, your family and your pet also. You love anything that considers the most of your time in your life.


What is my happiness? I could tell you that is because of my work. And I love my work. The work environment, the circle of good friends and the day routine find myself in a better way of living life. I rarely get a chance a good set of friends. And I share my life with good people including the student’s parents where I get a chance to talk with. Being with somebody else you really to talk to open-minded somehow change your vision in your life.


It is because I really want to get a chance to be a better person. And I really need to change myself also as a part of your own reality. And reality sometimes chooses you to find your own path of fate. The fate chooses you and choose to work what is best for you. And so I am consider to be part of my life.

Why Down syndrome

Somewhat in 1985-1988 Passport Picture

Somewhat in 1985-1988 Passport Picture

What is Down syndrome? Normally the new parents are asking the same question why do they have their child have with Down syndrome. There are normally two copies of 21 chromosomes on each side, one copy from a male and one copy from a female. But the genetic studies, there are three copies of 21 chromosomes.


Well in this article, I will bring you one topic, not less or more subjects.


Why Down syndrome?


I may be living as a normal to everyone. But to tell you the truth, no one seems to know me that I also have Down syndrome. Three copies of Down syndrome. It was called mosaic trisomy 21 Down syndrome. And that’s where I begin to fight over my case in the past years. Because I was in denial stage that time. Now in the terms you didn’t notice, mosaic trisomy 21 Down syndrome is a slightly chances to have change through the years.


Pure trisomy 21 or full trisomy 21 is the presence of an extra number 21 chromosome, the error or misdivision of chromosomes occurs in the egg or sperm cell that becomes the zygote. Because this error was at the very beginning of development, every cell that comes from this zygote will have an extra number 21 chromosome.


Mosaic trisomy 21 is the error or misdivision occurs after fertilization at some point during early cell division. Because of this, people with mosaic Down syndrome have two cell lines – one with the normal chromosomes, and one with an extra number 21.”

(Researched in http://downsyndrome.about.com/od/whatcausesdownsyndrome/a/mosaic_ro.htm)


Little did I know in my life, I realized that I wasn’t a sophisticated one. I rather to be called also one of the living factor in this little world called earth. I may be not boasting you to tell you this, but I would like to share what I decide to write this article about me, my life with being Down syndrome.


It’s not a big deal to have being with Down syndrome. I’ve discovered when I was in sophomore year in high school. The science teacher pointed out that I have had the case of Down syndrome. Little did I know that I didn’t know back before. I was having a little dilemma if I really have being what it takes to have Down syndrome.


So I came home and told my parents if I really have had on it. And yes from their mouths, then the world somehow devoured on me. I didn’t know all the time. I was in sixth grade or maybe in fifth grade when I began shifting to recall my memories. My voice somehow changed me as well. But the copies of Down syndrome didn’t get on my way.


Upon entering my college years before, my world began shifting again. This time, I told my batch mates if they were really know what was really like to have a friend with Down syndrome. One batch to another batch, I found one batch that I could really stayed and graduated with them. One of them became my best friend.


After the years it really came to my life that I have to accepted who I was. Then I found one group who among the parents have their child or adult with Down syndrome. It was an instant change that I have to join. It was one of my best endeavors when I realized that I wasn’t alone all the while. Down Syndrome Association of the Philippines or DSAPI was already in 20 years of service.


I joined 20th Happy Walk last February 2012, the first Happy Walk I’ve ever joined. But the community there somehow I knew was little that time. But my eagerness to come out somehow changed me again. Well I’m sort of talkative. But not as always, I’ve always want to talk. There is a dilemma again.


Let’s forward for this topic today. I have a job today. After seven years and seven months searching the job database in the nation of Philippines, I realized that I was a high functional Down syndrome, according to what my boss told me about it. It may be weird for you to hear, but I am aware what would be your reactions look like. My jobs before was different before. I began all my three jobs only lasted two months. None of them kept me in their service. Was it because of being competitive in the first place? They should treated me as one of them, not as a different from others.


Living with being Down syndrome is not difficult to handle with. In the community where I joined, new parents came closer to me. They have had even congratulated me for what I was being accomplished as one of the different from others. After living in 32 years, I finally cried for who I was to be. And it was my first time I discovered that I have potential in my career. I may be not perfect one, but as a gifted one, who have potential career ahead of time. Wish I could have my long life in more coming years of life.


The community where I joined and the work where I worked were the only treasure circle of friends I really trusted. I have never doubt them to become my friends. I may have few friends who were closer to me, but they were really closer to me. Among them in the small crowd of big population of 95 million Filipinos around the nation were really nice to me. It was nice to write, but sooner I will bring more articles to enjoy you will be reading.

Alternative job

I haven’t get into real job yet. But as soon I’ve accepted the deal being having with Down syndrome, it was the fate that chose me to go to.


I have mosaic Down syndrome like most of mosaics do a lot common. But some of us can’t do anything like similarities. Well mostly some of myself can’t do. I can draw. I can sing. I can write. I can even walk. But I am surely can talk. When I was younger, I’ve had a hard time to talk in straight in english. Like most of you can do and some of others won’t. Trisomy 21 Down syndrome is a different pattern in genetically disorder issues. I’ve met few people in my life when I joined Down Syndrome Association of the Philippines. That was when I’ve decided to add my advocacy to help special children to reach their talents.


My talents were sometimes a little different. Because some of you don’t notice what are my talents. I could be an artist. Drawing a lot of occasions in different patterns makes me part of growing up. And I remembered my most important of my life was the drawing of the sun. It was difficult at first learning that stage of knowing what to do in your talents. Maybe a little of perspective of your kid might have a chance to grow in their talents.


Now I am facing the fact, that I want to join as a teacher like my teachers did it to me. I learned so much well from them. If I’ve never been in occupational therapy, physical therapy or speech therapy, what would the field will choose me? Chef, maybe. Because I chose that field to learn of all nutrition of all meals. And of course, I didn’t regret choosing culinary course. Because I learned the knowledge of culinary and the basic concepts of culinary was. Artist, maybe. There was a little chance if I was given to graduate in First Academy of Computer Arts. But there was always given me a wrong decisions in my life.


Maybe this was a guess. An artist. Yes, I love the face of being an artist. Being an artist makes different from all the aspects in life. It can learn you from different perspective views or animate the feelings of a human. Well like most of the animators do are to create some humans involving with the things they can work it to. I guess if I make it right the good views.


A singer if I was given a chance with a good voice. Unlikely, I don’t have a beautiful voice. But I have beautiful talent writing lyrics of a song. Maybe for a lyricist for example, I can make different tunes for a song. Well most of the composers and lyricists did that for their field.


And of course, I’ve given a chance what to do in my life is to be a teacher. In the past, I always want it to be as a teacher. But most likely of the teachers do came from the education they have. From early childhood education, special education course, or being as a teaching course you would like to take it. But I don’t have teaching background. So I am ready to take a challenge to be part of teaching a class.


Special education is what I am aiming to teach about. Because this is where I learn so many different lessons. From the fact I learned how to read properly, how to speak properly, how to respect properly and every lessons you can make it the special children grow in their talents. And now my advocacy will start in special education. And I will make it happen to teach this children how to prompt their duties in their lives.


Teaching is the most profession in any countries. If you don’t have teacher or professor in your school, what would you can learn from them if you don’t know what are the principles of being as a teacher? Teacher is a remarkable position you can handle it to. Like I want it to make discuss what’s the down syndrome looks like. Some of my teachers were still in my facebook. And one high school teacher I knew in my life was very sweet to me. Because I was sweeter to make her good to me.


I hope the school I am applying to will simply going without a mistake. I want to dedicate myself as a teacher if I want it to make happen. This is a small step of my journey as a teacher before going something bigger step if it will make something bigger dreams.


And I was very proud of where I’ve been gone from my school. My journey as a student before ended. And now my journey as a teacher will make it something smaller to take. Teach them with your unconditional love you have. I love myself and I want it share in the world something smaller. Smaller dreams are sometimes a bigger opportunities to grab. But opportunities will grow eventually from your heart.

Happy Walk 2012
my dad and I

I’ve joined Down Syndrome Association of the Philippines around the time Happy Walk 1 year ago. This with me was my dad. He came with me to celebrate my birthday during the Happy Walk 2012. And I was happy that I belonged here in DSAPI society. And I am proud who I am and what I have accomplish so far. In one of my DSAPi closest friends was Jennica Gan who invited me to talk in their school in University of Santo Tomas or UST Campus, Alberto Magnus Building, College of Education. It was my first time to give short inspiration talk about Down syndrome awareness about me last November 19, 2012, Monday around 10 am in the morning.

Best examples to learn

One of my biggest challenges I’ve never complete in my life is improving where I am excelling from subject to another subject. I am not telling you to hear from this. But I guess I give a little shot in my life. Sometimes in the world really needs to know where you are excelling to the subject. Let me give an examples:


Science is the best example that I learn there from biology, genetics and any other form of the branch in Science. What I really like Science? Science is my best friend subject since 4th grade. I don’t know why. In the first place, things were changed. When I found I can learn from Science was more better to explore in any kind of environment, somehow it gave me more interesting topics. I learned how to draw difficult drawings such as the anatomy skin, plant skin or an animal skin. It gives me exciting to create more any kind of forms in Science. Then I found out later when I was in 6th grade that I really talent in Arts as well. Apart from where I was excelled from my subjects, my other subjects fell to me. I’ve got lower grades in other subjects. I’ve even didn’t know why. But somehow, exploring in my talents gave my break. I first got tasted into acting when I was in 5th grade. I loved giving jokes and acted as if I don’t care to other grade schoolers. Back then, I’ve used to be anybody’s friend. It means that I was supposed belong to my grade level but somehow I joined other grade schoolers. During our time, we’ve used not having high school back then. The only we have before was one section in each grade levels. We were the third batch who would graduated in elementary. I didn’t know why how I got this memory. But the sad thing, I really didn’t remembered what I did in the past.


As far as I knew, the teachers somehow always got my attention. Strolling around the campus made me a jolly person who would loved to do a lot of things just not like any other kids in the school. But I guessed it wasn’t the same until high school. Back from where I was saying from Science and Arts made me difference from the rest of my classmates. I used love any kind of games from hide and seek, running across the basketball court and the patintero or harang daga (in english definition: tagging). I’ve used to love that game. Each team consists of five players and there is only two teams in the court. You may choose which you are in the water lines or parallel lines. When the person touches you, he or she will call you “it” and you’re out of the game. But when one player passes all the hurdles either in your back, front or beside you, your team of your player will win the game. Or else when all the players are touch, the game is over. And there was another game I’ve used to love before was agawan base. There are two teams with two bases. Each team of their how many players was in your team decides where you can run and hide, or else your base is caught losing the other team. Oh, I really loved that game. I wonder if I can still play that games. By the way, this two games I have mention were the two Filipino traditional games here in the Philippines. You might know what I am talking about. It is different from your country. But I really want to discuss what is my favorite subjects. Traditional games we loved playing together.


But once in my life crossed at the back of my head was playing with my cousins were the games of chasing-the-rabbit, it was similar to agawan-base game. But this game we loved doing it. All of my cousins and my three other siblings worked this game through our ages. But the game is slightly different from agawan base. It consists 6 players in each team. Agawan-base game consists of how many players you can choose. When somebody sees you and dearly you have to run, or else the player will be caught and cannot return. So another player will have a chance to rescue the player who is caught. But if it’s caught, you are deep in trouble. But when the player is rescue, the player will return to your original team. I loved this games. I’ve never wondered why I was saying this. Those times were happy memories. Including the other games of my cousins and my siblings used playing the games. But the memory going other countries, that is another topic I’ve to tell you next time. Because it was really that long story. I might have end in this article a very long discussion article.


Aside from where I started telling you my subjects to tell was History, Literature, Music and Economics. Then later after graduating from high school was the huge deficit a little change of my life, I began wanting my English to improve more. Because back then when I was in high school, my skills in language test in English and Filipino were terribly bad in my grades. Somehow I really can’t much to improve more. I can’t even say the hardest words that I can’t excelling to remind myself. But even so, after so many years it takes me to another level to improve. Likewise, I am not even an intelligent person which I can excel to all subjects I want it to. A simple gesture of “please” or “thank you” would give me determination to improve more. I fell in love in Literature back when I was in junior high (or third-year high school). So the literature gave me a break. It really challenge me everyday as if there is no tomorrow for me. But I do importantly in my life throughout the years I have experience it. Then one of my nerves is telling me when I can publish some of my unpublished works. Which there are so many to revision some of my works. But then I decide to myself I can do better more.


History in entrance exams back when I was in senior year (or fourth-year high school) gave me an outstanding grade of 88. I didn’t know I can still remember some of the historic facts I have learned back in elementary to high school. Surely, I was challenged to a better school. Failures back when I was in elementary, I learned some of important review tests because I got a chance to get a NEAT (National Elementary Assessment Test) exams. I really don’t remember well some of my scores. Somehow I survived it. But the incident happened. I was so sleepy going to Antipolo with my mom. But my mom said to me that I would get a photo ID of 2 by 2 or 1 by 1. I really can’t remembered properly because the victim was me. Then somehow, I saw some vehicles going towards me. But what I heard from my mom’s story was that I was walking sleepy in Sumulong Highway going to cross to another sidewalk in the street. Because it was in the left. So I assumed there was no vehicle going through to me. But what I saw was the stars in my vision as if I was the cartoon character seeing the stars. Anyway, my mom gave me a lift going to the nearest hospital with the jeepney driver. So I guessed that was the end of the story I could still remembered.


The huge difference today is that I am still studying on my own without getting to the school anymore. Because I am older already. And I got a high school diploma from the school I’ve been attended for almost 11 years. And the school accepted me as the only and the last 7th grader who got a chance to study together with the 6th graders as my classmates in my high school. That was 1995 when I entered 7th grade and after that, I already was in freshman year (first-year high school) in 1996. Of how many challenges crosses back of my head, I am still learning of how the events is still on-going. That is the Philippines history although my mind is still sharp just like a grade schooler. Because of what I believe one of sayings, “Don’t stop learning of what you can learn. Always have empty-glass in your mind and you can learn as much as you can.”


I’ve remembered some of the important places I’ve been going to was the Assumption Antipolo where my three sisters and my two cousins were attending the same school they were going to. My classmate transferred from my school, Montessori Integrated School, Antipolo to my sisters’ school. I saw some of the prettiest and sexiest girls in the private school. Somehow, my jaw dropped as if I can court a girl. But I was torpe (meaning you somehow lack to say the girl you really love or to say something important) back then until now. I saw the soccer field, the chapel and every time there was a school fair in my sisters’ school. I loved to ride some of the rides and enjoyed as much I loved. But the different back then, I was even can’t say that I wasn’t proud as before despite having with Down syndrome. So much to say and so much to be scared somehow mixes my reaction. You somehow can’t say something important in your life if you are in my situation. Well, I was also a speechless whenever encountering talking some of the high schoolers which were all the girls in the private school. And I lost my count who I wanted to have a girlfriend. I was afraid and lost somehow in the road thinking some of the girls might saying to me, “are you from the school you are attending?” Maybe a little bit of worried I was.


In fact, my sisters were always there for me. And I’ve understood the feelings they have on me. It was because they were transferred to another private school in Antipolo where I was also attending to my school in 11 years. Somehow in 11 years made my adolescence and childhood a better life for me although we resided in Quezon City. We provided a car where we have had a driver giving us a ride to the school attending to and fetching us at the end of the day. Also back then, my father used to have a business together with his siblings and his parents also. So much to say and so so much to be not to say are also my reactions. The only exams I didn’t get was the NSAT (National Secondary Assessment Test) exams. So my teacher advised not to get in because I might can’t finished the test in time. The level in high school and elementary test exams were different despite the high school math also got me in trouble. But I managed to get a good grade in my senior year.


What I liked mostly of all high school subjects was the Biology. In one of the topics came to my head was Genetics. With some of chromosome and other mentioned names like Down syndrome and trisomy 21 crossed at the back of my head. That was the time our biology teacher said if I knew about the Down syndrome subject. I was a little of bit emotions of curious, anxiety and scared. Somehow I lost how many days that was passed already. Although in the past made a very clear to me that it was the time in 2011 I have to move on. I was somehow not working in my networking deals with my friends, my up-lines, down-lines, cross-lines and of course, the mentors or leaders. Despite I hated so much of the word abnormal that crossed in my back of my head. It was a turning point that I made clear being abnormal wasn’t good enough to say to all of the people including the society if I may include. But I jumped to another networking company which I really can’t to say the company’s name. Their service was also bad as the other company I’ve joined. The crowd was crazy and I don’t know why all the people were crazy. Some of the traffic enforcers I’ve encountered was telling the driver to move the vehicle to a better place to park. Somehow the driver disobeyed the traffic enforcer and said something bad towards to the traffic enforcer. At the back of my head was saying that I have to, “not doing of kind of work anymore.” It really crossed at the back of my head I can’t continue this anymore but applying in the future might help me about this kind of knowledge. Other universities have the course, the multi-level marketing course. Or it also known as the networking. I might dismaying about this but I discourage to continue it.


The half of my decade felt something strange to me and I realized that something I have to deal in the future. With the knowledge I gain is something to do applying in the future. This present times is telling me that I have to do something I can work with my financial. Because someday I might settling my own family. And the reason to live purposely has a mission for me. It is something I want to return my blessings to some people I want to exchange it. And I’ll be starting next week to do this because my birthday is coming in eleven days to countdown.

I have difficulties before I come up writing down one of my experiences. Each of my experiences will tell you how your special child surpass through like challenges can come up with.


What if your special child running away and end up going back to you again?


I did this many times before. Although being an independent special adult I am now today, this gives me a wild answer. I don’t know how I overcome right now. Each time I recall one of my experiences before, I really don’t how to explain this. But to tell you the truth, it comes out naturally for me. Yes, I tried many times before. This one little experience when I was getting to know myself more. There was one night before. My parents scolded me for a reason why in the first place I was still living with them in a first place. Back then, I even didn’t know myself that much as I do. I didn’t know in the first place what is Down syndrome. Not until I learned back when I was in sophomore year (or second year high school), the Biology teacher taught us in one branch of Science which it was the Genetics she came up with. With trisomy 21, I even didn’t know in the first place that was genetically gene disorder. Or somewhat called as down syndrome. So I realized I have some issues with other special children I met in the association. Parents with their special child with special needs came up to my point that he was having problem the same way I do before. I found this problem by solving my own. It was last year that I learned from an organization.


It was exactly that I have in my mind. In the streets in Manila from the place we used to live Quezon City before, I even didn’t know to do with 100 pesos before. I’ve managed to pay 5 people out of 100 pesos. But I didn’t receive the change of money. So the jeepney driver stopped by at the end of his journey said that it was the time I have to go down. I didn’t know where I was going to. By the time I’ve reached in Makati area, the area I’ve used to go before with my family, I went to. So I was dressed like a student. With brown pants and white polo shirt without logo on my shirt, I was hiding myself under a loose white polo shirt. The staff inside the shop came out from the area and saw somebody sleeping outside the shop. The shop I was sleeping in the street was my father’s running business before, the car repairing shop. He said to me that I have to leave. But then, the roaming town official guard (barangay officer in other words) came towards to me. He was beating me with his black wooden stick (the baton). Then as he grabbed my loose white polo shirt off my head, that was the time the staff noticed me already. He said to me that I was a son of the owner’s shop. Then the barangay officer left. The staff let me in through the shop.


It wasn’t my first experience that I was beaten up by barangay officer. I’ve beaten up before by the bullies before in the school. I did several times this before. Including when I walked away from the house to go looking after the girl I’ve used to fall in love. That was the time when I was in college. I knew at this time I already knew my curious case.


This is my first time I bring up with about my experiences to confess about who I am before and now. The truth slips out. And I guess the answer to the question I bring up. You have to know the limitations of the special child. Somehow he or she will cry about your advices not to walk away again. You have to know that every special child or special adult I am now has feelings or emotional state of their own. My lesson here is not to do it again. Because I learn so much of my experiences before. What I did wrong is absolutely wrong.


What if your special child gets tantrums all the time if he or she don’t get the things he or she wants?


This is the perfect opportunity I want to answer on my own question I bring up. Yes, I get a lot of tantrums before until I learn something I want to discuss with.


When your special child gets annoying about his or her sibling, it simply he or she is jealous about the attention that your another child has own things to take care. I’ve even notice that to myself. I’m always envy or jealous about that. Including before when the technology was introduced in the society, the computer was owned by my sister. I simply messed up with my sister, She sometimes scolded for a reason not to touch her things. Then she said to me if time comes, she would allow me to teach how to use the computer. But I guess I learned on my own through computer lessons in the school. Eventually after high school, I’ve notice myself that I can use computer for long hours. Not to mention that I used to be a computer addict before. I played console games, online games and Lan games. Every kind of game in the world I knew before, I used to play outside of our house playing online games through the business I have before. And the business my mom gave me was cellphone loading business. Which is until now, I still have that kind of business. I’ve been running the business for six years and seven months already.


Until I’ve discovered one of my talents which I grow my opportunities to come. I’ve been a lot of tantrums before. But I guess I’ve overcome up already before I am already a special adult with a certain age. Certain age means that I am much more mature, more thinking to solve of my problems and more responsible of what my actions do. And the things I don’t have before is to have my own computer. I’ve gain my blessings that I have now. Except I don’t want to download a game or something that it would distract me. Computer games are the distractions in your life. Whether you like to move him or her outside of the house, he or she would definitely get a tantrum. Except to the people who are still young and a stage to move on.


For me, tantrums are no longer new to me. I’ve get a lot of lessons to learn before. It’s the best example I have to answer the question I bring up with.
