The Pen

Fulfilled heart
An experience which taught me how to value life at its fullest, the day when I was informed about this activity I was actually in doubt if I would go or not; however, there was that feeling that pushes me to join. Then, the day had come, it was Friday afternoon where I packed my things and counted myself in. As we walked along the road towards the village, I have thought of those things that I left especially school works, but I made up a decision to let go of it for a while because I knew that there is still much important thing to do.
In less than 45-hours of encounter I have finally found myself in a place where I may belong. We were so overwhelmed when we got to meet the community especially when we came in, the way they greeted us as part of their family was very flattering even though they didn’t know who we are and where we came from. I am very grateful that they welcomed us wholeheartedly that’s why I didn’t hesitate myself to opened my arms and embraced them.
As we reached the GK community center, we immediately registered our names and got ready for family distribution. I was partnered with Helen, and we are fortunate to be part of Nanay Lucia’s family. With Nanay Lucia, I have learned many things as she shared her life to us. One of which is how to make a simple and yet wonderful living. There too, I have met new friends who took us along the road of our journey in this camp (they were the kids). Moreover, my trust to other people widened throughout the different challenges that I have undergone in the camp. I was able to know better my classmates especially my buddy.
More than that, I have experienced another great adventure with these people. The camp was an opportunity for us to know ourselves better as well others. In fact, it brightened my mind and my heart to know that we have that one thing in common, the nature of being a Filipino. I may not be a true-blooded Filipino yet I live to be one. The camp taught me great things

    THE LIGHT PEN

    A light pen is a computer input device in the form of a light-sensitive wand used in conjunction with a computer's display. It allows the user to point to displayed objects or draw on the screen in a similar way to a touchscreen but with greater positional accuracy. A light pen detects a change of brightness of nearby screen pixels when scanned by cathode ray tube electron beam and communicates the timing of this event to the computer. Since a CRT scans the entire screen one pixel at a time, the computer can keep track of the expected time of scanning various locations on screen by the beam and infer the pen's position from the latest timestamp.…

    The step I took as I entered the camp I was in awe of the tall, wooden trees stand in front of me. Also the mountains high above the trees made the scenery perfect. It felt like I was staring into a picture frame but this time it was real. Second thing I would like to give approval as I have stated before in paragraph one, it moves kids to go outside to get some fresh air. It lets kids get some fresh air outside and not be trapped inside the house playing video games. Other than this approval most of my comments seem to be more about my disapproval toward this camp. As a continuation of my disapprovals I would have to say that unlike other family vacation spots you are able to sleep in a comfy bed with and a room that has its own air conditioning but here you do not have any of that. You actual have to sleep in a wooden cabin the has windows with no screens so bugs and mosquitoes can be crawling on you while you sleep. There are only two plain mattresses that can only be shared (example: one mattress for the children other for parents.). Also at night it becomes freezing cold there is only one quilt per bed to be shared with the other people with you so half of the night your left…

    The truly great thing about camp is that it encourages independence while supporting the parents' values. When my kids were in elementary, I was a single parent. I had a lot to teach them and I relied heavily on my family and community to help me. Camp was part of that community, reinforcing the lessons I tried to teach my children at home. And every time I hear someone say that my son or daughter is a "good kid", I know that it is in part because their camp helped raise them. Not only that, but camp makes the learning painless, fun even.…

    It was not like they said it would be. Taking a cold shower from a pipe coming out of the basement wall of a seventy-five-year-old school was not fun. They said this would be the best week of my summer. Until I began writing this essay, I had never thought about the impact my experiences on Appalachian Service Project mission trips had contributed to my transition from childhood to adulthood. However, now I realize that not only was I affecting other people’s lives, but the work I was doing was also changing me. That was the best week of my summer, and so have the two following trips been that I have taken.…

    I cut the grass for some of my family because they asked me to cut it for them. I did it for my Aunt Gwen and my Grandma Hill. I enjoy my time with my Aunt and I was working together with my brother and my cousin and we had a great time over at my Aunt’s house. And at my Grandma's house we had a great time over there. I got to see my baby cousin and I haven’t seen here in a long time. I would do this again anytime because it was fun and if they ask me to. I picked this to do because they asked me to do it for them. This experience made me realize that family matters and to never let them go. It changed me making me a better person and making myself more available to family’s need. This helped someone else and it help the community…
