“Same Sex Relationship in our Society”
-Devy Ann Navarroza Agnes-

            God created us as a unique individual, that’s why we have our own personality and beliefs.  We have different opinions in life that need to be respected by everyone.
        In our modern society, same sex relationship is not new to our ears.  In fact in other countries like United States, the government grant the legality of same sex marriage. Here in the Philippines, most of the people protest about the same sex relationship, especially those who’s working inside the church: the priests. They strongly disagree about this because they believe that a man is for a woman and a woman is for a man only, nothing less, nothing more. They also believe that God only created two kind of person, man and woman. Now, what this they called “Gender Identity and Sexual Identity”? Gender Identity pertains to the genitals of a person. It pertains to the sexual organ of a person. While on the other hand, Sexual Identity is all about the identification of a man about his/her self whether bisexual, homosexual or transgender.
        As a college student, I personally agree about “Same Sex Relationship”. In my own opinion, there’s nothing wrong with that kind of relationship. Love is about loving, is not about who your partner is or who your partner is. As long as you know your limitation. As long as you know your responsibilities. You can’t blame people from falling in love with the person who has the same sex with them. Honestly, I’ve been in a relationship with lesbians, and based on my experience, lesbians are more loving and sweeter than boys. That’s why I can’t blame myself from having in a relationship with them.
        Relationship. Relationship. No matter what kind of relationship you have, always remember, you must know your actions.

Who am I? What has made me who I am?
-Devy Ann Navarroza Agnes-

                         In my 16 years of existence in this world, I have so many experiences that makes me as a person. Experiences that makes me down in life but definitely teaches me a lesson on how to be strong enough to face all the battle in my life. I'll always treasure those experiences because without it, I'm sure I'm useless. Everything that surrounds me, the people and all also makes me a better person in this world.
                          Hi, I am Devy Ann. Lots of nickname but I guess Devy is the nickname that fits me more, but my close friends usually call me "Debs". I'm a simple and shy of person. SHY? Kidding! Honestly, I'm talkative. I love to talk and talk. I never get tired of talking. I never get tired of loving an insensitive person who do not care of my stupid feeling:).Hahah. Sorry if I inserted my damn feeling, let's just forget it. I'm a friendly type of person and seriously I don't know how to be mad at a person. I forgive easily but I never forget what they did to me.
                           I have a harmonious relationship with my family. I was born single, with no twin but I was hoping I had. I'm the eldest and the prettiest daughter of my parents knowing that I'm their only daughter. Hahaha. I have a brother. The most caring brother for me. Yes, I'm the eldest but I guess between the two of us he's the one who has a more mature brain than me. Sometimes I hate my brother for being such a handsome guy, arrrgh. Whenever we attend mass together, everybody thought I'm his girlfriend. Like duh? Usually before, his girl suitors, yes girl suitors always gets mad at me because they didn't know that time that I'm his sister. lot of girls always flirt on him but he never pay attention on girls.He's focus is studies. I do love my brother even though we usually fight for nonsense things. We're totally different he's brainy most especially in mathematics unlike me. We really love our parents. Our family is complete and happy just like every child dreamed to  have.
                     Close friends, best friends and friends?I have those guys. They always makes me happy thou sometimes we lack of communication. Kristine Esquivel is the best among my bestfriends. We were childhood friends. Although now we study at the different school,we still find time to see each other. 
                I'm an adventurous girl. I  love to go to different places but my parents won't allow me. Our home is my favorite place where I can always feel the love, care and comfort of  my family I want to travel the whole Philippines. I want to visit my mother's hometown, Caramoan. I've never been there, same as my mom, she never visited Caramoan again since she married my father. Library is my favorite place. I love to read books. Jude Deverux is my favorite author and "Lavander Morning" is one of  her works that I love most. In terms of watching television. I'm not fond of it. Before, I used to watch television the entire day but everything changed when I went to college. I love to watch horror movies. I'm afraid of ghosts yet I love watching it. I usually scream to death whenever I watch it. Sometimes I also love to watch romantic movies.
                  I'm an environmental lover. I care for our mother earth. Sometimes planting and gardening is my hobby. During my high school days, I am an officer of an organization aiming to have a clean and green surroundings. Rose is my favorite flower. Someday at the right time, I'm hoping that someone would dare to give me rose on valentines day. Hahaha. I never received  anything in the 16 years. I usually celebrated valentines day alone. Hahhaha. Kidding! Of course, I celebrate it with my girlfriends. Friends always make my  Valentine day special. So much for valentines day. Hahaha. Dog is my favorite pet. 
                   I hate rainy days. I always remember someone whenever it rained. Someone I need to forget. But sometimes, I love it when it rain. I know I'm insane but I totally want to snow here in the Philippines. I want to experience even though for a few minutes only. 
                     Foods? I guess everybody can't survive without it. I love to eat, but it isn't obvious with my body. I have a sexy body. Kidding! Hahah. I'm not sexy, I'm thin. Last time I checked, my waist line is 22, sexy right? I know you won't believe me but it's true. I don't have a specific favorite food because all food is my favorite. "Higado" is my  most favorite food.
                   I'm a frustrated singer and definitely  a frustrated dancer. I love music but the music doesn't love me. My favorite band is "A Rocket to the Moon". 
                   Chess and basketball is my favorite sports. I've been a chess and basketball player during my high school days. My dream in life is to be a book writer. I want to publish my own book. 
                      Lots of things that help us mold as a person. I know I'm still young. More problems will come in my life but I know I am ready to face it. With the experiences I've experienced i is enough to make me a better person.

In the Future
"The future depends on what we do in the present"

                                      -Mahatma Gandhi-

               Future? Some of us are excited when we're talking about the future, but most are afraid. Why? Because they are not ready to face the future or maybe simply because they can't move on, that's why they are still holding their past. Honestly speaking, it's really hard to forget everything in the past, especially when you're still holding the memories you can't easily let go.
               In the near future, I want to have a comfortable and  happy life with my own family. I want everything to be perfect just like every person wish to have. To achieve this, I know the first thing that I should do is to make present a better one. To my future self, I have a lot of things to tell you. First, in the future, I don't want to be stupid again. I don't want to feel the same feeling, I always felt in my everyday life. I don't want to feel and experience again this thing they called "Pain". It's hard for me to let go the past. I know I can't master my future as long as I am the slave of my past, but I can't help it. In choosing the person that I will love, I want to be more careful because I don't want to commit the same mistake again. No more heartaches in the future that's what I'm hoping for.
My loving mom. *insert papa*
               Next, in the future, I want to continue my harmonious relationship with my family. I want them to be proud of my achievements in life. A daughter to be proud of, is what I'm wishing to live in a big house and provide the needs  of my family are the things that I'm dreaming and hoping that I can give to my family. I want them to be happy. The happiest thing on earth for  a child is to see her parents smiling because she's able to make her promises to her parents even if it's just in simple  way.
My only handsome sibling
              Lastly, in the future, I want to be a better person, a braver and stronger one. A person who will learn to fight back against her traitor friends. Yes! I'm tired of being a shy type girl. A girl they usually underestimate. I'm not a just a girl that they can easily underestimate because if they do, I can  also do it, but I don't want to compete with them because it's not my passion. I rather sat in one corner of a room and stay quiet. Yet' I know in myself that I'm not insensitive . I cry and get hurt easily. Crying and pretending to be fine is too tiring that's want to be a better one.
             "Only you can control your future" Dr. Seuss said. Yes, we are the only one who has an access on our future lives. Our future is in our hand. We our the one creating it. Our actions today will definitely reflect in our future lives. We should never blame the past for the burdens we're experiencing now, because past teaches us a lesson. Everything happens for a reason, God has plan for us. Always remember, "The past is your lesson. The present is your gift.The future is your motivation".

"The Heartache of the first Heartbreak"
     - Devy Ann N. Agnes -

I was so heartbroken that time,
You left my  heart like a star without shine.
Tears were always falling from my eyes,
Because you left my heart like a frozen ice.

You,ve cause a lot of pain to me,
That makes me sad and unhappy.
Trying to win you back to me,
But I can't for I know, don't love you me!

I want to forget you.
Because there,sno sense of loving too!
I hate to tell you this,
But..." thanks for breaking my heart and treating it like a shit! "

           Love, Love, LOve. Love is really unpredictable. Yesterday, I was smiling and now look at me, my heart turned out into broken pieces. Being inlove is a great feeling. You tend to feel the joy and everything yet being inlove is not that easy. Why? When you're inlove always expect that you might get hurt. Pain is the hardest and worst feeling of all. Don't want to feel the pain? Don't ever love again.
           Hi, I'm just a 16 year old teen and I can say that atleast, I've experience this what they call LOVE. Let me share you my story.He first graduated but we've studied at the saame school during our Highschool days. I don't know if he already knew me before, but I guess he doesn't. A kind of guy like him will never notice a girl like me.
          At present, I am a freshman college student here at Central Bicol State University  of Agriculture. During the orientation, I was surprised and shocked to see him most especially when he performed an intermission number for us. I'm quite surpised and really amaze when I saw him dancing a robotic dance.I admired the way he dance. It was all about admiration. It never sinked on my mind that I'll be falling inlove with him for the fact that I hate him. He courted my clasmate then suddenly he reject my classmate,dumped her like nothing happened. I found out that he's a member of CPAG organization and currently taking Veterenary Medicine. He's already a second year college student. At facebook. That's where it all started. We're fb friends. I am the person who's fond of taking selfies and I usually post it. He commented on one of my pictures and I replied to him. I also made a comment on his photos. One night, August 29, 2015 he chatted me asking If he can be my friend. Ofcourse, I told him why not. We both came at the samee school so why can't we. Then after that he asked for my phone number. Without realizing why he asked for it, I gave it  to him, ofcourse we're  schoolmate during highschool.
        He immediately texted me the moment I gave him my number.We texted each other 24/7. We usually talked about our past lives our highschool lives to be exact. August 31, 2015 he suddenly texted me that he want to court on me. I just laugh at him and said " Hahaha. I don't believe in text messages and I don't want anymore court me on text only". Then he told me that he's serious and that he will talk to me personally. Still, I continue laughing at him. I know that he's just having a good time that time. September 1, 2015 he had an accident at the motorcycle, so it was really imposible for him to go here and talk to me. Although Buhi is a far place, he doesn't rent a boarding house insted he always go home at their house at Buhi. September 3, 2015 Wednesday, second day of intrams. He texted me that he's on his way to CBSUA. I'm quite shocked. I know he's not yet feeling well that time. So I don't believed at him until I saw him approaching towards us (I'm with my classmates). He asked me to have a snack with him. I resist. I was a bit shy at that time but he insist. Because I don't to argue with him, I agree. While eating, he keep on talking about his life. I also found that he and my brother are close friends (both Korean and DOTA addict). I'm a bit surprise. I didn't imagine everything. I can't hardly eat my food because he keep on looking at me (OhmyGod! My face that time was so HAGGARD!). He's the one who shoulder the expenses for our  foods.After eating, we went to covered court. We watch the basketball game. When we got bored that time, he asked me to go at the atrium. At the atrium,there I met his classmates. That time the weather is so hot. We do not have a fan so he get his notebook and he continue to fan on me until the table tennis game ended(Kinikilig na ako that time!Hahaha). On our way to the cafeteria, due to the hot weather, he put on my head his cup and told me that I should always bring an umbrella and avoid staying under the sun without any cover on my head. We continue to walk, until he stop and look at my eyes and told me " do you believe me now that  I'm really serious on you?". That line made me mute. I really can't say a word. After a moment of silence. I just laugh then told him "I guess". We spent the entire afternoon together. Happy, overjoyed and great thats what I felt.
        He courted me. September 7, 2015 after the English period. He told me that he was at the stage field and asked me to go there. I went at him. We chitchat or a litte time then we went to my boarding house where he met my boardmates (Siya yan? Oh my devs! Yan ung magaling sumaayaw!-Reaction of my bmates). We also had our snack together. That day was another day to remember. Sadly, I didn'tht expect that it will be the last. Everything change after that time. That night, he dosn't even bother to text me until morning. At around 9:00 am, I send him a groupmessage "Huwag ka ng  umasa tanga!" thats what I wrote. That message wasn't really intended for him. Seriously. At 10:00, he texted me "Ako ba pinatatamaan mo?" I told him no, but his reaction was different. I tried to explain but he didn't even bother to listen insted  he texted me "Okey lang naman mabasted. sabihin mo lang kung ayaw mo na.Kung iniisip mo na pinagtitripa lang kita mali ka. mag eeffort ba ako kung hindi ako seryoso? Buti pa taapusin na natin to." That message made me cry. I tried to change his mind but its useless. He caused so much pain to me. I didn't my lunch and dinner that day. I was so affected of what had haappen.
        The day after that was our Presentation of "Dekalogo ng Wikang Pambansa". I was the first one to perform and I failed.  I didn't even finish it (Lutang na lutang ako that time). Everytime I open my mouth, I tend to forgot what Im going to say because his messages are the one entering my mind. The worst is, on my way to the bhouse that day, I saw him.  Nervous. I felt  weak that time (Yung biglang nanlambot tuhod mo na namutla ka na kulang nalaang mahimatay. hayyy. buti naalalayan ako ng friends ko). Everytime I saw him that scenario happen all over again.
         As of now, we're still friends. We still do have communication. Although it really hurts, I'm slowly managing myself to move forward and forget everything. Honestly, everytime "magkatext kami" the feelings of mine are coming back but I'm learning to control it.
         At the end of the day, no matter how much pain you've gain you're going to realize that it was all GOd's plan, maybe to teach you a lesson for you to learn on. Experiencing the pain and being broken is a part of loving. How can you tell you've love seriously if you didn't experience the pain? We just have to choose the right and deserving person to love. Always remember,  every story has a happy ending,If you're not happy then it's not yet the end.

P.S. Hi :) Thank you for the broken heart.Thank you for the pain. Now I learned. Don't worry someday, I'll be able to look again in your eyes without any regret that you left me, that you just dumped me like a trash.

"Addicted to You"
- Devy Ann N. Agnes -

One day when I was crying so hard,
And I feel so unguard,
An unknown number texted me,
And I didin't expect that It  will e the start of our love story.

I admit, you caught my heart,
You gave my life a new journey to start.
Facing this journey with you,
I know you're the man I'm destined to.

There's always a spark in my eyes,
Just like a  diamond that crystalize.
The smile on my face I cannot hide,
Because you're the man I really admired.

Although distance is the reason why we're apart,
I promise, I won't replace you in my heart.
I will never let you go,
Becaause I found my true love in you.

My heart always shouts your name,
That's why, it's making me insane.
What else can I do?
I'm really addicted to you!

Penafrancia Festival 2015: A Festival to Remember

" Faith is seeing light with your heart, when all your eyes see is darkness."
- Anonymus -

                        Penafrancia festival is one of the most awaited festival here at Bicol Region. Every year, thousands of devotees, even tourists from other countries come here at Naga City just to visit our miraculous patron, Inang Penafrancia. They usually spend their vacation here to  witness the one week celebration of the said festival. There are many activities during the festival that you will really enjoy, these includes the Translacion of Inang Penafrancia, Marian Youth Congress, Military Parade, Fluvial Procession of Ina and many more.
                      Hi! I'm Devy Ann. I've been living here at Bicol, at Buhi specifically since then I was born. I knew  how people celebrate Penafrancia festival. They celebrate it with colors and magic. Honestly, I never experienced celebrating this festival with my family due  to some reasons and I'm actually looking forward to celebrate it with them.
                     This year's celebration of Penefrancia festival was totally a different one. I really enjoyed the entire celebration. I participated at the Marian Youth Congress held at Jessie M. Robredo Colliseum. It was an overnight activity participated by youth coming from different provinces and dioceses. The experience was great, I met new friends and new faces. There are many things  to learn. It is also a time for us to repent for our sins and give importance to those things that we do not value.
                        Military Parade is also one of the most exciting activity, wherein different schools compete to win the trophy. University of Saint Anthony got the first place as alwaays. Sadly, during the parade it rained hard but despite of that, the show continues.
                         Among all the activities, this is the most important, the Holy mass being held at the Basilica wherein it was attended by almost thousands of people or more. Despite of the huge crowd, you will notice everybody's eagerness to come closer to Inang Penafrancia. They don't care about the heat of the sun and they don't care if they might get  hurt in pushing themselves to be near to  Ina. Through this, you can conclude that indeed, the faith and devotion of the people is strong. The last activity is the fluvial procession of Ina in the Naga River. It is usually participated by lots of Bicolanos especially those who are residing at Naga City.
                         Celebrating Penafrancia festival 2015 was a memorable experience for me. Everything was worth it.
