Reaching Out

Today was our SocSci outreach program...it was a happy day, a very happy day...

We crammed the puppet show backgrounds in the 2 hours befor the kids arrived...actually, all of us (Dia-Garnet-Opal-Topaz) were cramming our contributions to the outreach program...then we found out that out of the 40 kids we were expecting, only 15 could come...

Me and Erin, in a desprate clamor for a partner to take care of a child, went up to the bunch of kids together. They were watching us like we were foreign beings who wanted to kill...joking and saying a lot of carp about me and Erin getting married and having a child, we got this quiet little boy named J...j...Jerome! There! (Whoh shit, I thought I forgot my kid's name!)

Anyway, the program started...with Gee-an and Khail of Topaz hosting (did I get your spellingz right?!?)...it was funny and sick and quite stupid...so much it was really good...it even got my spirits up...so there were things like our puppet show! (Go Culas-Culasitos!! Go scissors and tape!!) And a -dance?!- by people from Dia...then a *spontaneously-crammed-but-still-funny* comedy by Garnet (funny at least to us...)...then a sing-and-dance by Topaz; their rendition of "Pinoy Ako"...not to mention Paeng popping up all over with his songs and his boneless body...

It was fun...the food wasn't poisoned (for once)...the face paint booth was alright, even if the face-paint was a bit runny and the Naruto ninja symbols weren't discernible at all. There were a whole heck of fun games, too...I wanted to play...There were also fun play areas, art booths, and a booth where you could throw stuff at Garnet people (woohoo!)...it was meant to uplift the spirits of the kids, but even I became happier after that experience...

But it's so sad though...these children with cancer won't live very long...yet they choose to live life and try to be happy...yet I throw my life away in depression and sadness...

you are not alone in throwing your life in depression. Come to think of it, a lot of people do. But the best thing you can do perhaps is to ask for help from people you know who will help you.
Look at me, i've thrown my life away in depression and i never even saw hope even if it was biting me in the lip!
Anyway, the point is we're here...
Buti ka pa you had fun yesterday!
Anyway, bye! TCCiCVM! ^^,)

hey there gian! nice to see that you found the outreach as fun as i did...

and don't worry about your feeling depressed about your life. everyone goes through those phases, and worrying about them will just make it worse.

if it's any consolation, your existence and the joy you bring to other people's existences bring hope to everyone. keep it up! ^^
