I look like I’m gonna kill someone on the top picture.
Day well spent with my Uturn girls/fam. I love the Lifestream bond I share with these people ♥

Tita Lyda left for Maryland today :( Aww haha. But Uturn bonfire was todaaaay! :DDD Woke up at like 10am to get ready hehe x) Then Kuya Niko picked us up from home & then we went to ate Ashley’s house to pick up stuff :) Then we were off to the beach :D It was suuuper cold when we got there though-__- LOL got to the beach pretty early, so we just helped set up c: While waiting for the others, I took a nap, HAHAH. At least the sun came out a little after that =) Then the Aranetas came, & more people came after that, heheheeh :) I swam for a little with the Aranetas & the others, even though the water was coooold, heheheh xD Pretty soon, it got hotter :D & more people came! Later, we started to eat & then held our “graduation” for the graduates of this year, HAHA it was funny xD Then we had worship & then it got pretty dark already D: I played glowstick football with Ate Narah, Ate Ashley, Justine, & some other people, LOL. It was fuuun c: & then we had smores & I played some more with the kidddooooooossss. After playing, I went back to the water again & started to dig up sand crabs with Lerieze & Chelsey & Corey & James & it felt so weird, LOLOLOL. Then it was time to leave D: Sigh. Cleaned up our spot first, & then dropped off some people & then Kuya Niko took us to Lollicup >:D Yeheeey. Bought my brother & Kuya Niko some boba & I bought myself some popcorn chicken.

Last day of camp, waaaaah =( Sigh so saddddd D:
-Woke up early to finish packing up & clean the cabin. Brought our bags & stuff to the front of the campsite & went to eat breakfast :D
-Awardssss after breakfast. HAHAA Green Team pride, most Humble team fsho (; Hehe even though we didn’t get the best award ever, I’m glad to be with my team, we were destined to be, LOLOL.
-After awards, we took more pictures & stuff. Wah, last moments at camp :( Wish it lasted longer.
-After the pictorials, we cleaned up the main auditorium & I had my last moments with the air hockey table… HAHAHA. Gonna miss those competitions, keke.
-Went into the bus & got ready to go back down the mountains. Sigh.
-On the way back home, we watched Tangled again, HEHE ;D On the bus, Kuya Niko started to draw on peoples’ faces while they were asleep AHAHAH so funny. & he didn’t even realize that there were drawings on his face tooooo xD
-The ride back home was shorter than I thought it would be, so we got back at church at around 12pm, hehe. Waited for my parents to pick me & my brother up, & then I said goodbye to everyone D;
-Ate lunch at Chow King & it was boring -_- LOL but I saw Stephanie & Corey at Seafood City >:D Of course I would see them right after camp (;
- Went back home & unpacked & then took a nap. Hehe felt so weird to be back at home :o Woke up & finished my homework as fast as I could. MEH. Then I uploaded picturesssssss!
-CAMP WITHDRAWAL D:
Uturn Camp Day 3!
-Woke up early again :) It feels so good to wake up, especially in the forest cause of the fresh air :D
-7am devotions in the cabin cause it was tooooo cold outside, hehe.
-After devotions was breakfast. Heheh my eyes were still puffy but s’allll gooood. When we got outside, it was SOOO FOGGY & COOOOLD AJSDJAHSGHJKSJKDG. BUT I loved it, tehehe. We walked to the dining hall, but the boys were still doing devotions, so us girls just stood out there freezing our butts off, LOLOL.
-After breakfast was the morning service ^^ Message: 0 Else Matters.
-30 minute individual reflections! I stayed in one of the auditoriums cause it was toooo cold outside stillll.. inside was too quiet too AHAH so I kinda fell asleep.. LOL BUT I did realize that I put other things in front of God a lot.. so individual reflections really helped me still =)
-Group reflections after individual time again :o) Wheeeee I srsly love talking to the girls, even though I don’t have much to contribute to our discussion ^___^Y
-After group reflection was some free time again hehe. Patricia & I stayed in the main auditorium though, to practice our air hockey skillsssss ;) LOLOLOL. & yeh, it was supah fun. & I also played with Sam =) He’s so goooood D:
-It started to SNOW outside, AHHHHH ASHJDGJDHGJS so cooooool. Even though it was a little bit, it was still really cool =) I wish it snowed more though, hehe.
-After everyone finished playing basketball & swimming, I played Mafia with Sophie, Patricia, Joseph, Baba, Natalie, Turner, Steven, & Melissa HEHEHE ended up being a total failure though LOOOOL. But it was still super fun =) Then we played some more games wid the other peoples =) MAD GAB FTWWWWWWWW.
-After the game, we ate dinner! :D Yesss.
-Practiced our skits again after dinner :o)
-Last night at camp :c
-SKIT NIGHTTTTT! Teehehe so fuuun, even though our groups’ skit was a total failure… LOL but it was fun just being happy around them :) One of the best higlightsssss ever ♥ The other groups’ skits were good as well =) Then we had a Bible verse game to see if we remembered our verses from the previous day.. I’m not gonna lie, but my team failed at that too AHHHA x)
-After our skits & stuff, we showed Kuya Ken & Ate Christine our appreciation for them with the video that Kuya Niko made.. heheh aw, it was so precious c:
-After that, we headed out to have our bonfire, ASHJJKASHG it was so coooold! Like waaay too cold -_- Hahha. But yeah. We had our testimonials, & it was nice hearing from other people & their experiences about camp =) & after that, we just worshipped again, & it felt so gooooood to be with my family out in the woods with the open air & the stars & just praising God :)
-Then we threw our burdens away into the fire (on the 1st day of camp, we wrote our burdens down on a piece of wood).
-After our worship & throwing our burdens away, it was SMOORES TIME! Kekeke. So yummmmmy. The ashes hurt my eyes though, so I just went inside the main auditorium & hung out with Megan & Amber & Leah & Patricia & the otherssss =) & we played Mad Gab again!
-HEHEHE then it was time to meet King Bobo! Oh goooosh, it was too unexpected HAHA.
-HAIL KING BOBO. KISS THE RING. Lol toooooooo funny. I was so scared, LOOOL.
-After the King Bobo stufffffs, I went back to the cabin & showered ^^ Then played again with the kiddos heheh. Decided to stay up super late, especially since it was the last night at camp :c Explored again, teheh.
-Went back to the cabin at 2am & knocked out after that, hehe. Good last night at camp, mosdef gonna miss it like crazy.
Uturn Camp Day 2! :D
-Woke up early in the morning & showered =)
-Devotions @7am :)
-Saturday morning worship after breakfast :D
-After worship, Kuya Ken started the message of the day: 2 Live is Christ.
-After the sermon, all of us had 30 minute reflections. We had to find a space quiet enough & far enough from everyone so that I wouldn’t get distracted. It was a reaaally good experience, especially since it was quiet enough for me to focus on God’s Word & hear what He was telling me to do, which is especially hard to do at home. But a bug kept bothering me so I had to move places a lot, LOL -_- I love nature though.
-After individual reflections was reflection time wid the girls :o) We shared & then prayed.
-LUNCH TIME :D
-After lunch time was team pictorials & the whole camp picture shoot kekeke :)
-Team games after the pictorial, HEHEH sho fun. Even though my time didn’t win, we were pretty close to winning (; HAHA but it was a good bonding experience. It became so cold though D;
-After the games, all of us went back to the cabins & changed/showered & then went back to the auditorium to practice with teams for our skit >D Green team meshed with the purple team meheh. Our theme was “living righteously together in harmony.”
-Practiced our dance stufffff & then dinner =) Yuuuummmmmmmmmm, camp food is so good ♥
-After dinner was the evening service =) Message: 1 Spirit, 1 Mind- Unity Through Humility.
-Later was our communion. Kuya Ken allowed us some time to pray & to just devote ourselves to God again. Prayer that night was such a blessing. Having people pray for you & everything.. God’s love never fails. Letting go of our burdens felt good, & just talking with God made me feel like a new person. Everyone was so in tune with Him, & it felt so good to just cry. It’s that kind of crying that feels good, & I never wanted it to end =)
-The skit was cancelled cause of our extended communion, but haaay, at least we get more time to practice ;D Haahha but after the service was down time! =) Played with the kiddos; AIR HOCKEY FTWWWWWW DUDE. Eyes were still super puffy, but oh well! HAHA. Was gonna go hiking in the dark, but decided not to go; just explored with Patricia & Christal heheh.
-Ended up going to the cabin at like 12am & fell asleep at 2am LOOOOL but yeah, goooooood, satisfying 2nd day at camp :)
UTURN CAAAAAAAAMP DAY 1! (Today technically counts, even though it was a school day-_-)
HEHEH first, I went to schooooool! I was toooo excited & I could not focus at all, LOLOL. & then my dad dropped off my brother & I at church after school! KEKEKE first, we checked in & then got on the bus ^__^ Hahah sat next to Megan. Then we waited for the other kids to come & talked with the other kids on the bus :D Waited for like an hour, haha. Then we were on our way to retreaaat =) Watched Tangled on the bus! LOL so funnnn. We got there at around 7ish & then we had to check in again & get our folders & name tags & headbands & stuff heh. Then we got to know our teammates c: GREEN TEAM fsho. Then we got our bags & stuff & headed to the cabins & then got our dinnner! :D Muahah then our team had to make a team chant so we just started practicing outside :) Our team’s chant is so cooool >;) After that, we played a game hehe. & then worship time! :D After worship, we got into our teams again & made some posters. Later, we officially introduced ourselves to fellow camp people meheheh. & then teams stayed late to finish up our posters, & then we went to our cabins to get some sleeeeeeep! Oh & mountain air is so gooooood. Sigh. Good 1st day of camp :D
I will definitely miss this. My life seems incomplete without all the practices now, HAHA. But yeah, I am blessed to have all these wonderful people in my life ♥

Then I went home & got ready for Michelle’s surprise birthday party :D It was super fun meheheh & Danielle threw the party by herself ^___^ Dang, it was pretty fun. I ate a lot that day hehehe ♥
King of Glory, King of Love
Man, I’m really glad that I was part of this production this year. I’m so blessed to have these people with me, & that I get to go to church with them <3 Tonight was one of those nights that I know that I’ll remember forever :D Even though I’ve been busy & there were lots of practices, I enjoyed every single one of them. All of the practices that we’ve been through are most definitely worth it, & they payed off :) Most of all, this production was all for God’s glory, to show our love for Him because of how He loved us =) When I saw that we had a big crowd, my hopes went up. Most importantly, I hope that we ministered to at least one person out there who wasn’t saved yet. Cause they’re also as important to God as we are to Him :)
Haha I’m kinda sad that it’s all over, but I know that it’s not the end! Tonight was such an uplifting experience, & I know that it’ll keep on going on :)
Oh & I saw the Sevillas after such a long time! I MISSED THEM heheh.
Look at what I found, @dannigochuchu!!! LOLOLOLOL THIS WAS FOREVER AGOOOO XD Haha I miss thisssssssssssss.
