Turmoil in Middle East

I think the Middle East needs better government, honest leaders, and stronger human rights. My heart and thoughts are with those innocent people who are affected by the turmoil in the Middle East. The thing is, I don’t have much more to say about what is going on there because I don’t follow it closely enough to have an informed opinion. From what I see though, I think this is happening because a lot of the young people are fed up with corruption and a lack of opportunity.
I can sympathize because my home country has the same problems.

This is not only affecting Middle Eastern countries but also, other counties too, like us here in the United States. Gas prices are rising significantly even though our wages aren’t going up. And gas prices don’t just affect what we pay at the pump. It affects the prices charged for a lot of goods and services like food and heating.

I hope and pray that this thing going on in the Middle East gets settled peacefully and soon.

It’s Raining... Again!

In the past few weeks, the weather has been very cold and wet.
As a Filipino, I grew up in tropical weather so, this was a big change for me.
Even now, after eighteen years, I am still not used to this kind of weather.

However, it rains a lot in the Philippines, specially during the rainy season which starts in June. Since it is very humid, though, I could play with other kids in the rain without getting cold. But, still, I am not a fan of a rain. I don’t like when it’s raining specially when it’s a very cold rain and the weather is gray, that makes me feel sad and lazy.

I am so happy that Spring is around the corner. I can feel it coming!
