Because of THEM

It is really hard to find the accurate and the most appropriate words to express my feelings towards English especially that how am i ever thankful to THEM why we and I develop such  Englishes since I started schooling. I could never forget my late father who can speak English well where in fact he did not even graduated in College. Because of their teachers who colonizes us during that time. But because of THEM he and we, us,  had developed better English.

Who are they? Who are the "THEM" that I am referring to?

Philippines were colonized by many colonizers but one less than a hundred year as far as i remember when these colonizers brought education to my beloved country. Until now, I couldn't help to realize that things are happened for a wonderful purpose and reason/s. They brought English language to us and it is the medium of language in the Philippine curriculum especially in Colleges and universities and the lingua franca to the world.It really helped us and a little bit easier to some to understand and converse to people who can speak English any where in the world. As I had read to our English Literature book in grade 8 , our  country now is one of the largest English speaking nation and it gave us an avenue to make us easier to go abroad and got a job. Gain more friends easier around the globe because we can converse English language and can understand too. Not just that but more. And I am very thankful to THEM for leaving us an immortal token to the world. Thanks to the Americans. It is because of THEM.

Resiliency

We always encounter people everyday. These people are part of us whether we like it or not.They are in your work place, or at school, market places, at the mall, parks, in the community or in your near neighborhood.
However, we cannot control circumstances and people we meet, we pass by with people in the streets, in our workplaces like our colleagues, in the neighborhood, our friends, and even our own family members. Sometimes, we tend and try to understand people around us when there are things or situations something wrong about their responses and behavior,asking the questions why they act and why they speak that way? We may sometimes misinterpret how they talk, how they will respond and even to their gestures they show. In some cases in our lives,we may sometimes blurted out if we cannot contain anymore the sensations we felt in our body like stiffness of the heart, heavy shoulders or numbness when anger arises. We may sometimes respond negatively or more to the person/s whom we felt and encountered negatively. Thus, we go down to their level. How does resiliency important to our life then? How could we be resilient? let us always be reminded by tracking down the sensations we felt and find always a resource on how to cope with the situation. That may be hard and not all of us would have the same reaction when negative situation comes in. However,being resilient that is to be practiced every day makes everything and everyone less miserable and even friendlier and worry-free. It would always start in our very selves. Be resilient.

Scammers

I have been in an online social media for the purpose of enhancing my English proficiency, professional growth, make friends around the world, know about interesting facts on foreign men and women, education and lifestyles..etc. Due to the fact that  I love to have more friends and curiosities ignite me that a friend of mine here in EC suggested a site. I signed up immediately and begun to gain friends. Several friends whom I made an exchanged emails seemed to bother me when they refuse to let me see them on cam via skype. It is very funny that they also describe themselves..too hard to believe positive adjectives were used seemed to be almost perfect. When I always invited them, very curious...they refuse and they change and ignored the topic..of seeing them on cam lol ... why do they love misleading people and having fun doing it?
