My Reaction about the article of NZ student accepts $32,000 bid for virginity.

 I felt shocked and very much disappointed when I read the article..... Can you imagine, students were having sex just to pay their tuition fees.Their morals are being degraded. They will be free in paying their schools obligation but the most terrible thing they did is it will be the exchange of their virginity.Maybe they did it as their escape to their problem but in reality they will be sacrificing immorality.

Losing virginity is not a good examples in a woman but we must accept  that nowadays majority of the teens  in the age of 18 below are already not virgin maybe they think that it is a correct thing to do and for their curiosity in the word of sex but they don't think the possible things to happen and for the illness that they can get in having sex for the different  people and they don't think also for the reactions of people if they know that you are not virgin anymore their respect will be lost.

As a woman, the word  Virginity is very important in the sense that  we  keep our body and our thoughts pure as we trust in God's perfect plan for our life. It is God's will that we should be sanctified that we should avoid sexual immorality that each of us must learn how to control our own selves in a way that is holy and sacred.

Does eating carrots help improve eyesight?

Good news for carrot lovers out there! Yes, eating carrots do help improve eyesight. Carrots have carotene, which is converted by the body to vitamin A. Vitamin A is essential for the production of visual purple --- a photochemical substance, of a purplish red color contained in the retina of human eyes and in the eyes of most animals, that is quickly bleached by light, passing through the colors, red, orange, and yellow and then disappearing. Visual Purple helps a person see in the dark.
Without vitamin A, a person could develop night blindness or poor vision at night or in dim light.

Did You Know That?


The 600 million year old Great Barrier Reef could be seen from outer space? Astronauts on space flights were amazed to learn that they could clearly see the giant coral reef from their space rockets. The Great Barrier Reef, which extends for 2,028 kilometer (1,260 miles) along the coast of Queensland in north-eastern Australia and which covers an area of 208,000 square kilometer (80,000 square miles), supports a greater density of life per given area than anywhere else on earth.

The great Barrier Reef is composed of millions and millions of tiny stony cups, home to coral polyps - small animals related to anemones and jelly fishes.

What is the fiercest freshwater fish?

What else but the infamous piranha! These ferocious fish live in rivers in tropical Central and South America. Piranhas are only about twelve inches long (30 cm) but a group or a shoal of hundreds attacking together can overwhelm and devour a much larger animal in just seconds! Their weapons are their extremely sharp triangular-shaped teeth which they use to hack the flesh off their unfortunate target. Although piranhas are more known for their aggressiveness, some species of this fish, however, are relatively harmless and feed only on plants.

How does a cactus survive in a desert?

Are you familiar with cactus? These are special plants which live in the deserts of North and Central America. The structure of their body enables them to survive the dry, the waterless, and rough condition of the desserts. They have large, thick stems that have spines or scales instead of leaves. Since cacti ( plural for cactus) do not have leaves, they do not lose much water through transpiration. And as most cacti are spiny, they could not be easily eaten by hungry9 and thirsty) desert animals. Also, the stems of most cacti are wrinkled or furrowed which allows them to expand with stored water after a rainstorm.

My Collage

Who Am I?

Who Am I?

I'm Jossel Anne Tomas. Seventeen years of age. I lived in Townsite Lupon Davao Oriental. I was born on January 23 , 1993. For those who don't know me I just want to share something about myself. I'm a simple and shy person Opinions of others about things interest me, but quite often. I end up keeping my own opinions to myself. But I can say that I'm a lucky girl because of the good people around me, they show their care and love to me. Especially my parents, grandparents, friends and my tita's and tito's.
Speaking in parents I'm lucky to have them it is because they have a good heart, not like those some parents hurting their children.They show to me how I'm important to them and also they show that they are still at my side what problem I encounter although they are separated.
I feel most happy when the times the family of my mother and father side will be okay. I feel angry when the time that my own things well be destroyed by the careless persons. My greatest fear in life is the word of DEATH it is because I'm not prepare for it. My greatest worry now that I'm a teenager are being totally perfect lady, be responsible andindependent. And my biggest dream in life is to finish my studies and have a good job to help my parents/family for their needs especially in fiancial and to have my own house and business.
The things that I love to do during the time that I feel bored are the following: watching tv, listening music, sleeping, texting and reading pocketbooks.
The good qualities that I can consider about my self are being , kind,honest,to be strong to all trials encounter , and trustworthy. And the bad qualities are being irresponsible, too much silent , negative thinker and being so dependent.
As a teenager I discovered the difference attitude of someone especially their bad qualities which I hate most. But I discovered also that I have to accept the things I like as well as the things I don't like about my self.
Now, I pray to God I will really learn to use the very powerful tool for my success in life and thanks God for the wonderful gift about my self.

Activity No. 3

What is Identity?

Identity is the picture you have in yourself. It is the result of literally thousands of dialogues with yourself and the people you meet during your lifetime. And it is not something that you can simply demand of yourself. It's development depends on your ability to go through life's different sittings.
