Rest In Peace, Grandma

Edit: Before I leave, I made a new tutorial for Photoshop, which is a wallpaper and coloring tutorial. Hope you guys like it. 🙂

Yes, as the title suggests, my grandmother passed away just this October 22, 2009, due to diabetes. Actually, she’s not my real Grandmother, though I consider her as one; she’s my late Grandfather’s brother’s wife. So we’re going to Bohol to attend her burial.

I came from school that day and was wondering why they were eating with a gloomy look on their faces. I was listening to the music then and was dancing and abuprtly stopped when my Mom said “You should stop it. Your Lola Ponsa died just this morning.” And my mouth dropped just like that.

When I was a kid, we go to Bohol every summer and would always drop by their house often. It was near the beach – which was free – so we’d always stay there for about 5 days before coming back to Cebu with a sunburn. She’s always nice to us. Everytime we went to the beach and forgot to bring something, she’d ask their helper to give it to us, whether it’d be a towel or a lunch so we could spend the whole afternoon in the beach without starving ourselves.

I haven’t gone there for quite some time now, since we moved when I was 14, so what I recently saw was her picture – and she was thin. We were even planning to staying there during summer, and now, we would go there to see her in a coffin and attend the burial, which makes me really sad.

I guess what they say is right: memories would make you sad when you remember them. The things she did for us, the watching of late night movies, the praying of the Rosary together… All those memories are rushing back to my mind and I can’t help but smile, despite of myself.

I’ll be back on November 3, since we start classes on the 4th. I’m finalizing my writing portfolio, and it’s like a joint portfolio with some other friends. If you wanna join, just drop me a comment. 🙂

  5. Georgina says:

    I’m so sorry about your grandma. Even though she wasn’t your direct grandma, she was still a relative and one who was close to you.

    Sometimes memories are happy. Despite what happens, these memories live far past death. Memories do make you sadder when you remember them more clearly. 🙁

    I wish you a safe trip.

    I’ve got my own writing portfolio so I don’t think I’ll be in on it hehe. 🙂

    Haha yeah. It’s alright; we have different music tastes.

    Oh, sometimes when I watch television or movies and there’s a hateful person in it, I feel such a great urge to punch the screen or something like that. :@

    Yeah, it is very sickening. 🙁 It’s good to hear she’s somewhere safe though.

    Ooh, then that wasn’t the book I was thinking of. It sounds pretty creepy though!

  11. Olivia says:

    I hope you and your family can easily get passed this tragedy.
    Although, I cannot imagine it being at all easy.

    But on the bright side, at least you knew her.

    &Yes, I just told the girl to stop spamming. And I do not plan on yelling,
    swearing or anything like that. It’s just a complete waste of time.

  12. Claudine says:

    I’m sorry about what happened to your grandma. That must be really hard on you. But at least you still have those memories of her to hold on to. 🙂

  19. Delilah says:

    Awhh, I’m so sorry about your “grandma” but I’m happy that you were so close to a person who wasn’t your real grandma! I never even met my grandma’s/grandpa’s sister/brothers. xD I don’t even know if they have one, ahah.
    But I never got to really meet me grandpa from my dad’s side. Well, I mean, I saw him before when I was like 2. But he passed away with lung cancer. D: My grandmothers and grandpa are still living well. x]

    Freak! Really, you couldn’t access my site? Was it because of your computer/connection or was it because of the server? Cause my site never seems to be down… /:
    Learning Korea is sometimes fun. [x Notice I said sometimes, lmao. ;D
    Awhh, no, I won’t delete you!! (:

    KPOP FTW (:
    Current Korean obsessions:
    Movies) None
    Dramas) You’re Beautiful [BEST DRAMA ATM <3]
    Music) Heartbreaker – GDragon from Big Bang; LaChaTa – f(x); Love Rain – Kim Tae Woo; RingDingDong – Shinee. 😀

  25. Sienna says:

    Like, a title page that is basically the name of the subject and pictures that relate to it around it. Well, I think they’re just a waste of time. You could be actually studying instead of colouring. :/

  26. MIMING says:

    ohh filipino ! haha sorry, i think its your gravatar that made me think youre korean 😛
    sorry to hear about your grandpa ! i lost my grandpa and grandma very young so i dont really remember much.

  28. Georgina says:

    Aww, that’s really sweet. I usually get annoyed when my parents follow me around and want to know where I am going. But sometimes it can be helpful. 🙂

    I don’t have any exams in my course so far. But I have three massive assignments this week. There’s only one left but there is a lot to do. I guess it’s a good thing that I don’t have any exams. I would be pretty stressed out.

    Yeah, he has – he used to be so snappy and pushy. I don’t know – it’s not like I’m going to be best friends with him now or anything but it was nice of him to apologise.

    The kissing scene in the Notebook where they kiss in the rain is incredible. They are so cute in the movie and the movie is sad at some points.

    Haha, she IS very cute! 😀 I get scared when a dog barks suddenly when I go by – it’s like they don’t like me.

    LOL, ants rushing to me. I was more imagining children coming up to me to steal lollies from my outfit.

  29. kissliin says:

    Condolences 🙁
    Hope you’re doing ok now. We all know that she’s gone to a better place, so you should just ask her for her guidance 🙂

    I’ve only been to Bohol once, and that was before we came to Canada. When we went there, we weren’t allowed to touch the tarsiers 🙁 So sad, coz I was really looking forward to it too! But it was fun. Gosh, bayad manta pirmi sa Cebu kung ganahan ta maligo dagat. Mahal pud oi! HAHA

  30. Olivia says:

    That’s great Senyth. And thanks for the virus advice.
    It’s okay now, if it happens again I may look more into it.

    ;D How was your Halloween?!

  31. Sharla says:

    The beach? Haha, lucky! :p
    I didn’t do much of anything just passed out candy to the trick or treaters.

    I like the new tutorial, btw. 🙂
