Essay: Why do early marriages fail?

In some cases early marriages fail, when a person marries at the young age which is about 19 and below. The marriage will surely not work out because at their age, they are curious, adventurous and very aggressive, it’s not the love they feel but lust. They can hardly adjust with each other and that is why they can’t help fighting each other because it is the source of misunderstanding. At young age you can’t or you didn’t think first this situation will bring you, you always think on the present without minding the future, we’re sometimes are close-minded because we only consider our own thinking’s and doings but not the others. In our age we are still dependent in our parents though we think that we are grown-up and old enough to face difficult problems which our parents have already faced. We make decisions quickly but don’t think about the consequences. We will just realize our faults and failure when we are old. Because of financial problems, many families are now suffering poverty and their children cannot finish their studies and so they choose to marry early and they think that they have no future. They think that we need to be practical.

Feelings of dread and trauma..

I will share to you my classmate’s experience. One afternoon they were 4 girls including Thereza who were standing near the traffic light in Brgy. Tambo to ride on a jeep to go home. While they were waiting for a jeep, there was a stranger man, he looks like an addict who attempts to snatch Thereza’s phone. Thereza was shocked. She doesn’t know what to do. She was mental blocked for what happened. She never thought that someone would grab her phone as fast as that. Then the snatcher got her phone and run away. She said that’s the feeling of trauma. She wants to cry but she can’t. After few minutes, she recalls for what happened to her then she started to cry while thinking also what will happen to her if her parents will knew it. She was dreadful while she was going home.

She learned that we should not display our valuables in public places because sometimes our lives will be in danger.

Narrative Report: “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings”



*Maya Angelou- a negra girl who described her experiences from her old school to her new school.

*Miss Kirwin- Maya’s favorite teacher who loves teaching, a brilliant teacher.


San Francisco- where George Washington High School located.


The story goes like this, Maya Angelou studied in a local high school. She tells about the students there. Majority of the students there are like her, negra. Then, unfortunately she transferred to George Washington High School.


When she was in her new school, she felt strange. Most students there were white. She felt dreadful and trauma. She can’t get over while she was away from her familiar neighborhood of the blacks. Her white classmates there have better vocabulary than her.


Fortunately, Maya met a brilliant teacher. That teacher was Miss Kirwin. Miss Kirwin was Maya’s favorite teacher. Miss Kirwin was the only teacher she remembered. Miss Kirwin has a good attitude and she is different from other teachers. She is a rare educator and she has a passion to teach. Maya also conclude that Miss Kirwin never seemed to notice that she was black and therefore different. These are the things that Maya felt okay and got no worries anymore. She enjoyed schooling in George Washington High School.


After years later, Maya came back to San Francisco and went to George Washington High School to visit Miss Kirwin. Miss Kirwin always remembered her that she was Ms. Johnson, the girl who had good mind. Maya knew that she was the only teacher she remembered.

Difficulty :(

When I was in elementary and high school, I thought that college life was not that difficult. I thought that college life is just another chapter of your school career. Well, I think college is the most complicated, TOUGHEST! I agree! College life is not commodious. Other says that it’s just average. Well, for me it’s very difficult and I’m really struggling on my subjects.

I admit that I’m a lazy person, apathetic. I’m active in school activities and stuffs but I get lazy when it comes to studying my lessons. I have many plans to change myself but my plans are just wasted because I’m very lazy to do it. Studying in college needs more study habits, discipline, focus and time management. These factors can help me through it but I’m always tempted to watch TV, to sleep, having much time on the computer and texting. These are my hobbies, really sucks but I’m convivial of doing it.

But how can I still focus on my studies if keep on doing my unimportant things. I’m very confused! Why I am tempted? I’m really hoping as early as now I must change because if I will remain being lazy, I will not have a good future. Changing myself into a responsible one is for my own sake.

June 29, 2010 ♥

This day was a memorable day. I had lot of fun and excitement in this day. In the morning around 7am my father dropped me to school and what a surprised because we don’t have class in our P.E.. My classmates and I were gay but one of my classmate was worried because her phone was lost and she thought maybe the phone was in the jeep so we helped her to find it.

Walking along the way in SET bldg. with my classmates I saw my very special friend: Kevin

:D.We chatted a little because he will have his math class in CSM bldg. That was fine and I am happy because I have not seen him for 3days.

Well, go back to my classmate, she texted her phone to bring it back to her and we waited for reply. After that, we went to CASS bldg, our college for our next subject English 1. While waiting, my classmates and I were chatting in the student lounge. I have a classmate who was one I really chatted all the way. She said, she had many weird and scary dreams. When she shared it to me, I felt creepy and I told her to pray to God always. After chatting, we went to canteen and buy some hot champorado. I had a great time with my classmates; we talked and laugh a lot. Hihihihihi!

We had our class in English 1. Our English 1 subject was interesting especially our teacher who teaches us very well, very kind and patient and you can easily understand her lessons well. She also shared her experiences and teaching good values. It was interesting.

In the noon, I had my lunch at home and I was preparing some stuff needed for our speech choir presentation in our English 3 class on 6pm. I brought a cloth, speakers and my mp4 for our background music. I also wore a color black shirt at that time because we had planned to wear black.
Around 2pm I went back to school to have a final practice for our speech choir. Well, actually we just practice a little bit on that time because we were enjoying taking pictures. Taking pictures with your friends is really fun.  My classmate also found her phone; the driver brought it back to her. We were very happy. On around 4:30pm we went to CSM bldg. for our Math class. In our math class, I felt a bit nervous because maybe I can’t understand what was our teacher discussing but I keep cheering up myself that I can do it and I must practice solving math problems.

After our Math class we went immediately to CASS bldg. for our English 3 class. I went to the comfort room first and I saw my Mom she was asking me if were done presenting our speech choir then I answered, “Karon pa Ma ui, Kulbaan na kaayo ko”. Then my Mom answered, “Oh good luck anak.” Then I blessed my mom and went to our classroom. This is it! Woohhh! We prepared the things we need for the presentation and we presented it. Weeee! I felt so agitated and active.

The feedbacks of our judges were not that good. They said that the setting was solemn and the music really fits to the poem but the people, I mean we were not that good to deliver the poem. They said, we lacked of actions and it would be better if we put some actions on it. That presentation was still good for me, because I was the leader. I really give efforts on it but the problem was my group mates were not that cooperative and we lacked of time to practice seriously.

After the class around 7:30pm my friend Kevin was waiting for me to go home. I never expected that he waited me because I thought he went home earlier. We went out of the school together and he dropped in the street of our Brgy. then he left. While I was riding on a “tricicad” (A 4-wheel bicycle ride) I felt blissful, very stressful yet adorable and blessed day. Thank you Lord for this day.
