360 Degrees

The school with elegance: Arcadia University

Our school is having this 3 Days SAT Camp (with College Tour) started yesterday for selected ten 11th graders from the College Awareness Club. Yesterday, we left Philadelphia at around 9am and we had a tour in Arcadia University (known as the Grey Towers Castle). I love the architectural design and the landscape is breathtaking. The program is great and the students get to study abroad (European and Asian countries). How I wish I can go back to college as a freshman in this institution. Then, we drove 1 ½ hours to Harrisburg University. It focuses more on STEM courses and it is located in the downtown. It is a huge building connected to the Strawberry Mall. Studying there is I guess interesting because the courses are more hands on. One of my students wants to take Forensic in College and she is interested in applying there. On our way to State College Pennsylvania, I was able to write a poem. The travel time is almost 2 hours from Harrisburg.

360 Degrees

Every tick of the clock,

Every 360 degrees round, 

I want to let you know,

I want to let you feel.

You are important to me.

But we are very busy,

We are so preoccupied,

I don’t want time to just pass,

I want every second to count,

In another 360 degrees round

Keep in mind-

That you are my love,

You are my life,

No matter what…

Every day passes by so quickly and we are so preoccupied with so many things that we seldom stop to let our love ones (especially family members) know that we love them. Sometimes that’s all we need to go on our daily lives. Sometimes hearing the words “I love you” or “I care about you” will bring a smile and comfort to get though the day.  May this poem remind you to stop and reflect for a while…think about the significant people in your life.

*A special poem written & given to me by my husband Anjilou Flores for Valentine’s Day 2/14/2012
The words from me spoken so softly,
Listen thine heart to its tone melodiously,
As it cries for love and passion joyfully,
To thy heart’s soul-sweet and sentiments loudly,The days are always brighter with you by my side,
Thinking you out of my life is sure to be a suicide,
Your face,your smile,the mysteries- all kidding aside,
My love for you is and will forever reside,

‘Tis day, although, history proclaim,
Is romantic hour preciously and mostly acclaim,
But this beating heart, O heart of Anjlou’s, plain,
Will forever cast not thy love in vain,

Sparkling water,breezy wind of Love,
May this Valentine’s be thy memory above,
So in time, in human life’s resolve,
Your name, and yours only,will evolve.
