The Anime Addict is Now Watching...

Last Exile.

I love this anime. I got hooked instantly the very first time I watched it over QTV Channel 11. What got me hooked is the battle between ships in the anime that is reminiscent of the pre world war naval battles wherein the winner is dictated by the ship captain's excellence in manuevers and tactics.

Another thing that I love in this anime is the aerial battles that is similar to the aerial warfare during World War I. But this anime is not just all about war and battle. What keeps watching this anime is its good plot and story.

I reccomend this anime to anyone who loves anime and war movies.

If you want to have a good preview of this anime, then you better visit Wikipedia. The website have a comprehensive review of the anime.

Writer's Block

My work is killing me. No. Not the whole me but the creative part of me. The poetic me...my alter ego that aspires to be a good writer, an excellent essayist, and a brilliant poet. It is too bad that I focused all ny thoughts and energy to my work.

Now, sad to say, I lost me (bad grammar, whatever).

How can I ressurect the other part of me? How can I do that now that I have more burden to carry? More work to do? More problems to face?

But I will fight my current situation! I will spun new poems. I will create tales. I will react and analyze and critcize our society. I will....

....when the day comes that I successfully destroy the chains that binds my other personality.


But now I am struggling.

Changes

They say that life is full of surpises and I think that they are right.

I just can't believe it at first. I hung in disbelief when my brother and I talked for the very first time since I came back home from staying in Davao for a month after finishing the fieldwork for mapping the Davo Gulf coastline. I hung in disbelief when he told me that he was now a changed man and he speaks about GOD. He confessed that he he is now a believer (and my Mom told me that he is considering in joining the Opus Dei). By golly, what had happened to him that he was changed from an agnostic to a person aiming to be saintly? I was surprised.

GOD indeed works in mysterious ways. I praise HIM to what HE did to my brother.

From a doubter into a believer.

Now, maybe I had to evaluate my faith. My brother's new ways make me feel that I am the new agnostic in the family.
