Hanging Out at the Library - The Multi-Hobbyist

Hanging Out at the Library

Yes, what happened today was a bit unexpected. First off, my purpose for going to school today was just to pass my case analysis for my OJT. Though the deadline was tomorrow, I decided to submit it today since I've got plans for tomorrow. I decided to go to school with my sister after lunch. Her next class was still at 3:45 pm, so I asked her to just be with me before her class starts. She insisted that we should go to the library because her friends were there. I agreed, in one condition--if she'll sit with me instead with her friends. Haha!

Since I wanted to kill time and I am at the right place--which is at the library, I decided to suit myself with a good book. I headed straight to the literature section and chose among Philippine Literature books. A certain book caught me. It was small. Smaller than any other books near it, but wider than them. The book was entitled "The Woman Without A Face". I thought it was a novel. But when I got to sit and got a good view of its cover, the whole title of the book was "The Woman Without A Face, The Lifestory of Pilar Pilapil" by Pilar V. Pilapil. I was born early in the 90's, sure I would recognize her. Especially that she's been on the news like just last month? Because of the car incident thingy. Only the younger ones and those who don't watch, listen or read news wouldn't, I bet.

I knew by that time I got to read the cover of the book, her story is extraordinary. I've heard stories of her from my parents, because she, Pilar Pilapil, was indeed an icon way back her time. I've proven that through each and every page of her life story which was authored by herself. When it was time for my sister to leave for her class, I was just starting to read through the life of Ms. Pilar. I can't get enough, honestly. That's why I decided to just stay at the library and finish the book myself. Even if it means being alone at a large table. Even if it means going home by 5 pm. I told my sister I'll just wait for her to finish her classes in the library and we'll go home together, and she agreed. Then I continued reading the book.

Here are some of what's inside her book. 

I could say that her book, well as for me, is a good book. I've also learned that she is a Born-Again Christian now, and as a fellow Born Again Christian, I was enlightened that I've been shared by her life experience. "Maybe God did allow this to happen. Maybe He has a message for me that's why I was reading her book", I said to myself. Because indeed, the book has a lot of messages. Read it for yourself so you'll know what I'm talking about. :)

The bottom line of her life story is that fame, money, and men will not really satisfy you nor give you the happiness you've always been wanting. Most people nowadays think that they can be happy if they have fame alongside money, then eventually women or men with their side, but no. One day, you'll finally realize that it's not all you've been waiting for. You'll feel that something's been missing all alone. You'll start to find it. But it was Jesus all along that you've been missing. That's why even though you've got fame, money and men/women with you, you still feel empty. Start longing for God. Find Him. Return to Him, for I guarantee you and even Ms. Pilar, that Jesus is all you'll need. After you've found Him in you, fame, money and men/women will all be nothing to you. For with just Jesus alone, you are already contented, happy and loved unconditionally. :)
Oh, and here are some of the photos I took earlier at school. I kind of missed the environment, you know. 

Photos were taken at the Botanical Garden at school. It was my first time to actually be there ever since it was built. Sarreh naman. LOL.
