  • Fighting Nostalgia

    It’s been more than a week now since the last time I blogged. I was interrupted by some social events in the workplace and by some activities at home. I also noticed that I easily get tired lately that I felt the need breath out and rest so I was asleep most of the time. And during my spare time, I can’t help but to watch television these past few days, and it seems to be that it is becoming a part of my routine before I get to bed or after coming from work. That could be a sign of homesickness, a separation anxiety that anyone who’s away from home has to deal with.Image Source: http://thepleat.com/

    From Technorati, only then I came across with Blogcritics which from my research, is an online magazine which offers writing reviews in all aspects covering all the contemporary culture and society with more than 3600 registered writers. Image Source: http://www.ryjennings.com

    The first time Friendster was introduced was the actual hallmark or the beginning of the interactive social media connection and "Friendster" being the pioneer was considered as the original and even the "father" of all social networks. Image Source: http://atothepandm.files.wordpress.com

  • Technorati: verifying the Claim Token

    In order to optimize my blog, I need Technorati to have my blog become more visible in search engine. Unlike here in Blogger.com, in Wordpress.com, blogs can be automatically visible from search engines by adjusting the setting without making too much effort to increase traffic, but since I migrated here, I had to register and claim authorization on my blog.

  • World Press Freedom Day

    What could have been with a world without freedom to express? It could have been a diversity of prisoners in detentions with no chance to claim the rights to be heard. It could have been a place where there is no room to break the silence and the use of mouth to speak is not possible in which the chain and the mode of communication seems to be weak and built without advocacy.

A Call of Responsibility

Posted by Ma. Theresa Macabuag On 11:55 PM No comments




I was running against time fighting for others' lives. I was never hesitant and quite determined to go through it all, and no matter how many storms passed by and how many obstacles I had to face, I made sure that at the end of the race I would try to surpass all, not because I want to but because I HAD TO! It was a call of responsibility.


It was then like raining cats and dogs when my family tried to run and ride on a boat from the rivers of hell where it was all rough and tough with the big rocks and big waves in the middle of stormy weather. It was a battle  against crisis of uncertainty and facing it was the most crucial part of it. The decisions involves risk taking while indulging all the eyes of the critics. 


Fears were overcome by the ropes of faith and by the light of hope that at the end of the day, we can make it all, and was blessed from above to conquer all. It might be a temporary destination, but from here I had moved forward and made a stepping stone. It was an experience of survival of the fittest where I had no choice but to change the route for a new direction in order to save lives. 

It was a clear motivation which was not for the sake of a higher post, definitely not an obscure ambition nor a dream come true, it was more of a call of responsibility or obligation and I was more than willing to offer myself  in a known place of self deprivation. In an uncertain situation, found a self-motivation inspired by the others to make a full change of direction. With full guts and determination along with faith, I willingly accepted the challenge to pursue a career in transcultural way. It was a no doubt that things would not be easy from the start when I had to turn over my life above as I had no idea on what awaits me to the foreign land.
