Hesitation to use the I may be a tell-tale sign that the I does not know itself fully. Or maybe the I doesn’t know which I, of the many different Is, to use. In any case, there is an I. And there is a You. The You is validated by the I. There couldn’t be a You without the I. But the I also becomes a You through the validation of I through You. And so, the I also exists thanks to You. And so to You who is reading this confused speech of I, THANK YOU. I's existence has become meaningful because of You.______________________________

“When we love a wanderer,
Edith Tiempo, “Between Living” (via proseprunings)
We wait for footsteps
That may, or may not, come:
First the hours-the days-
Then-years. Then, never.
Yet always we do know
Whereof we wait:
The creaking gate
The scraping on the steps
And at the door the level gaze;
For these we wait to know
The roving one is home.”
“The basic idea is to impose a sentence structure that names the person first and the condition second, i.e. “people with disabilities” rather than “disabled people”, in order to emphasize that “they are people first”. Because English syntax normally places adjectives before nouns, it becomes necessary to insert relative clauses, replacing e.g. “deaf person” with “a person who is deaf”. Furthermore, the use of to be is deprecated in favour of using to have, i.e. “a person who has a hearing impairment” over “a person who is deaf”.”
What's the meaning of "noble"?
- Nung 2nd year hayskul ako, meron kaming English teacher na itago natin sa pangalang "Ms. P". Mabait siya at di naglaon, naging mahal rin namin siya bilang aming class adviser. Isang araw, sa English class, habang nagdidiskusyon kame tungkol sa isang istorya, may mga kaklase akong nagiingay.
- Joel: Ma'am, what's the meaning of "noble"?
- Ms. P: I beg your pardon?
- Joel: "noble". *sabay turo sa part ng libro*
- Ms. P: "Noble"? Hmmm... Ahhhmm... *nakita ang isang klasmeyt namin na nagiingay* JOSHUA!! WHAT'S THE MEANING OF "NOBLE"??
- Muahahahaha. Mga tactics nga naman. XD
