The Road to Success is not straight: There is a curve called failure, a loop called confusion, speed bumps called friends, caution lights called family, and you will have flats called jobs. But, if you have a spare called determination, an engine called perseverance, insurance called faith, and a driver called God, you will make it to a place called success!

LIfe at the mountain....



It has been eight years since I was selected as one of the lucky few to enter the Philippine High School for the Arts. Of course, as the name says, the institution is aimed to hone the selected students' skill in their particular Art Major. Like me, my Major is Visual Arts. The school is located at one of the peaks of Mt. Makiling. Obviously, our place is quite secluded and high. The view was very nice.

Since we are on a mountain, the only time we can go to our homes is during weekends. Dormitories and food were provided for our stay. I can say that living on the mountain is a different experience especially if you came from an urban area. You listen to the tune of the cicadas roaming around the trees outside your room, you hear the giant lizard's grunts to signal that a rain is approaching, and you also share spooky stories with your roommates in the glow of the lamps during midnight.

Speaking of lamps, each and every student has a unique one. We were required to use it (just in case we still have something to do) because lights shut off at exactly 10.00 PM. Mine was a simple desk lamp, enough to cover my whole study table. Others almost looked like floor lamps because of their humungous sizes. If there is something that would come first to my mind when I speak of my stay at the mountain, It would be the lamps.

Anyway, if you are looking for different sorts of lamps-may it be a classic or modern one, you might wanna check Farreys.com.
