RIP, my Captain

Just last weekend, I watched The Angriest Man in Brooklyn, so when I learned that Robin Williams passed away, the news was like a continuation of the movie. And like everyone else, the news made me watched scenes of his unforgettable movies, just like the Dead Poet Society. I kept repeating those scenes with lines which reminds you of life's lessons, and my favorite is:

"to remind myself that we must constantly look at things in a different way" 

I also kept watching the most touching scene of the movie which is the last part. Most of his famous movies are really inspirational which makes the cause of death really odd coz it seems like his living in a totally different world from the roles he's been portraying.

The 8 Types

I recently read about Gardner's theory of multiple intelligence, I might had encountered this in my Education subjects in college, but didn’t really matter to me that time. I'd like to visualize it as having partitions in our brain and each person has different configuration in a way that one intelligence may be higher than the other.  Though there is no further studies yet that offer evidence of the theory's validity, I find the concept quite interesting and very practical, and I believe should be widely make known to Filipinos so as to not limit our concept of being intelligent. It's sad to know that it seems to be part of our culture, that the students coined as “intelligent" are only those who are good in Math or Science or English (Logical–mathematical, Naturalistic, Verbal–linguistic) thus, the best opportunities are always available to them. And for those who have more of the other abilities, are only termed as good in the extra-curricular, which sounds not as important. Most of us had this concept instilled to us when we started going to school. This is just my random thought anyway without any deeper research on the issue.

Anyway, out of curiosity I tried those free online tests and most of the results say that my Intrapersonal intelligence dominates.

Small beginnings

I’m glad that Jose Cuervo gave me the guts to be honest with myself and to my friends. I haven't had a conversation like that with them for quite some time and it was such a relief to pour out my emotions to them. It's funny how the universe makes wonderful things happen, gathering friends together in the right time to be with the right people to tell each other the right things. I learned a lot from them that night, though I might have missed some, since Cuervo knocked me down. One eye opener though is the idea of enabling and disabling, never thought that's what I've been doing, and it's up to me to change that; I will be one brave girl if I'll be able to make a move and learn to let go. It was fun and heartwarming at the same time talking to them with my deepest emotion. We don't exactly have the same points of view all the time but we know when to talk, when to stop and when to listen.

I'm lucky to have them, they are my life’s music, my musian friend, the long distance and length of time not seeing each other didn't matter. It seems like it was only weeks ago when we had our last inuman session. A lot of things may have changed but our closeness didn't. It’s like we were college girls again, talkin' about boys, but only better and hotter. :)

I wish us all the best especially with the N.I.CH.e plans. I really hope it will be realized coz I believe great things start from small beginnings.
