Lights, Camera, Action!

IMG_2126Spring Semester 2015 is up, and so am I. Because, finally I’m completely moving to the bigger campus of the University of Hawaii West Oahu. And what this means to me, is that I am getting close to my humble dream of becoming a Certified Public Accountant and tax attorney–and in lieu of a lifetime devotion–to be more of service to my less-privileged clients at Legal Aid Society of Hawaii.

However, as I was struggling yesterday with the $4.00 tote bag that weighed more thand 20 lbs of $1,000+ worth of hard bound textbooks, I couldn’t help but cry for the prices I had to pay in achieving my dream: First, being away from my children. Second, possibly being away from you too, my WordPress friends (for inevitably losing this liberty to write and blog as much as I love to).

It was a quick sentimental moment that led me to a poem quite inspired by William Shakespeare’s All the World’s a Stage. Regardless, thank you everyone for the support and friendship–a million thanks to you all! I hope you cherish your crafts (just as you cherish your blogs and  your followers too. Have a good weekend, and be happy! 


 Just me            

 Lights, Camera, Action!


 Lights are up, 

and the kick-off 

of a playwright 

we call life

has just begun.




As the cam

focuses to you

and Ai, 

 be ready

for the multi-colored stage

to own. 


 Time to give your best, 

and to execute excellence 

with no remorse!





For only 


you give yourself

to your passion, 

 you’ll earn 

true claps

from this world.



 And those hard-earned claps 

  will go on 

 even when the lights turn soft, 

 for as long as 

you have given 

your all.
