have you?

have you ever tried wishing and holding your breath while passing on a bridge? weird, isn’t it? well, i tried those things not just once but many times.(haha) how funny and childish it may seem but i enjoyed doing it. trying to hold your breath for how long depends on the vehicle your riding. and your kinda lucky if it is so fast. i said so fast coz it seems like the driver maybe a racer in his past life. he is driving insanely fast and it gives you a chance to just hold your breath for not more than 7-8 seconds i guess. but your in the wrong side of the road if the driver is driving like a turtle. super slow! and there are times that luck may not be on your side if your vehicle is following a tricycle or worst is a “trisikad”. we may hold our breath for about 30 seconds – 1 hour or an eternity maybe. i am just exaggerating! have you ever had experience where you were passing a bridge and it seem like your world has turned upside down. or it feels like all your body organs have been disarranged? what an adrenaline rush! your her=art is pumping so much blood, your heartbeat is raging fast and feels like your neurons have been disconnected from your brain.

have you experienced it? have you tried it? well, if you haven’t. i guess this is the right time to think twice, think again and change your mind and try those things. surely, you’ll have a one of a kind experience.

As a child, many of us have wishes that we want to come true for sure. Wishes that others might find quite weird yet amazing. As a child, our minds are slowly developing and it is being shaped for the future. I, myself have many wishes in life. Wishes that I still hold on to. Wishes that I can make come true maybe someday because I know that it is too far from reality. Why? I’ll let you know about it.

Being a child, I think of wishes that too far from reality. Maybe because of being a child but as the years passes by, I still want that wish to come into reality. I wish to have special powers like Spider-Man, Super-Man and other super heroes. I want to be invisible so that others may not know that I exist around them. I wish that I could read others’ mind, thoughts and even their dreams. I wish that I could fly like a bird and soar high in the sky. I wish that I could go back to the past and be able to meet the persons who made this world a better one. Talking to animals or plants is quite a fantasy and we can see it in movies or read in books. Moving things through mind is also one of the things I wish to have. I wish that I could talk using my mind and changing the things that are worst and transform them into nice ones. You might find them quite unbelievable but it’s true, that these are my wishes since childhood and still existing at this time. But I think the wish that I always wanted to come true is to travel in space, be able to touch the solar system with my bare hands, catch the stars and be able to witness every rising and setting of the sun. It is not just an ordinary rising and setting but it is absolutely breathtakingly beautiful. A scene that could change a certain point of view of the person whenever he/she looks at the scenery.

I know that a wish is a wish. I am not sure if this will happen in the real sense of the world but I know that it will happen. When? Where? Every night. Maybe, in my dreams.

about the aspiring writer

Posted: September 5, 2011 in introduction

Let me start this autobiography by stating my name first. I am Nieva Ester C. Gayo but most of my friends call me “nice”. I don’t know why or how my nickname ended that way but I’ve been asking myself and my parents about that for years. I’ve been living here on Earth for 21 years now and am presently residing at Barangay Oluangan Leon, Iloilo but currently staying at Pavia, Iloilo. I was born on September 29, 1989. The persons who brought me into this world and raised me up were Mr. Leonilo Gayo and Mrs. Eva Gayo.  My father is working as a seafarer while my mother is a plain housewife.  I am very proud of my tatay for he sacrifices and provide everything for our family. I admire my nanay for she raised us to be what we are now and taught us the values that should be lived everyday of our live.  I have only one sister who is 6 years older than me and she is Ma. Evalyn Gayo. There are times that we fight about certain things, argue with what’s supposed to be right or wrong and exchange insights on current happenings. But there are some things that we two like to share with each other and there are some things that we two love doing. We share the same ideas on movies, books, persons, tv shows, clothes and many things. We love the same kind of food and love watching shows that feature food.(yummy!) We both love watching csi’s, chuck, house, national geographic, discovery channel, different documentaries and travel shows. We dream of travelling abroad but we want to explore first the wonders of the Philippines. (Huwag maging banyaga sa sarili mong bayan). As I was growing up, I can say that I’m quite active, very eager to learn and a bit “kulit”. Well, I guess most kids at that age possess that kind of attitude. My attention was easily caught by cartoon shows and I’m an avid fan of those television shows. My pre-school years were indeed a colorful one as what most people describe those years. I can say that I’m a bit lucky because I was able to enjoy those years while others did not have the chance to do so. (just what like one of my  favorite authors Bob Ong said) I’ve played different games, enjoyed my toys and had fun exploring other things that only happens in those pre-school years. And as I grow up, I was becoming aware of the thing that is happening around me. I started to formulate questions in my mind and dig deeper into worlds unknown. I became conscious of my actions and am taking responsibility in doing it. As I started my elementary years, I was very much willing to learn. I excelled most of the time and was able to maintain my number one spot from Grade 1 until Grade 6.  My parents became proud of me and I was also happy with what I have achieved at that moment. I became very active in most of our school activities.  I was able to showcase my talent in dancing and was able to compete with other schools because of it. I joined quiz bees and spelling contest. I can say that my elementary years were full of success and overflowing joy. As I entered High School, I became quiet and seldom talks with my classmates. I guess that would be just an initial reaction of a student who doesn’t know anyone and who is new to that school. High School years as I can say were my developing years for it molded me into a whole being, nourished my mind with different things, nurtured my abilities and tested what I’m capable of. I engaged myself into different sports and was able to find joy in playing those sports. I get excited when the September month is approaching because it only means that it is time for Sports fest, (yehey!) the time when we get competitive and able to release our sporty side. I played volleyball, basketball, soccer, softball and badminton. Yeah that’s right and after playing each game in each sport consecutively, I would lay flat on my bed when I got home. Tiring isn’t it? But it is worth it and you can’t deny the fact that winning brings smiles to our faces. As time passes by, I was able to develop something that I didn’t know I have within me. At first, I was writing because I want to pour out all my emotions. I want to release the different feelings dwelling inside of me and I want to express myself. And I was able to do that through writing. I started to write poems, essays, short stories and even novels but unluckily, I hadn’t had the chance to finish it. My words became the window of my soul. Every word that comes from my mind is a mere reflection of who I am. My ideas, opinions, emotions and other things that I want to convey were reflected in my writings. I was able to gain awards because of this ability and many people have known me deeper because of what I write. But there were some who find me weird, nerd, geek or whatever they call it because of what I just love doing. Why is that? I don’t care either cause what important is I enjoy what I’m doing and I’m not anyone. It became my outlet in pouring out my emotions. I write whenever I feel happy, sad, frustrated, anguish and at times I write because I just love doing it.  I am fond of reading books, watching T.V and movies, listening to music, eating, cooking, surfing the net, playing my guitar and writing indeed. There are still many things that I like to do but it’s quite too many that I can’t remember some of those. I sometimes hate speaking in front of many people. I hate being criticized by others not by who I am but by their own perception of me. I hate it when others question my ability and what I’m capable of doing. I hate it when someone is hurting my family and friends.  And I hate it when someone is judging me by what they see or hear in other people. I guess some people also hate that. At times, I tend to be intimate in terms of my actions towards my family and friends. But there are moments that I want to isolate myself from the rest of the world. I want to be alone and if possible I don’t want somebody to disturb me. I guess for every positive characteristic, there’s always a negative one behind it.  Well, that’s me and my whole personality. Knowing me is their choice and it is up to them to dig deeper and discover who I am truly, what you see is always not what you get. I am bit complicated yet easy to understand and very simple to comprehend.
