Korea Study Abroad Expo 2014

I think most of us has dreamt to study abroad. Some of us wanted to take short courses in culinary arts or courses in fashion design in Paris, France or other European countries. Some may also want to study in the United States of America, in Singapore or more. It is maybe because we want to learn first hand from the experts and at the same time we want to experience the way of life in those countries. 

And that is why it is truly exciting for me when I found out that there will be a "Korea Study Abroad Expo" in University of the Philippines, Diliman, Quezon City. I must admit that I really wanted to go to Korea and I think it is also not a bad idea to have fun while learning. I understand that is not that easy to study and live in a different country but I believe that the experiences you will gain will be very valuable to the lessons you will learn.

It is my first time to attend an expo/fair related to Education. I would like to share what happened in Day 1 of the "Korea Study Abroad Expo 2014". I took few pictures using my cellphone and I apologize for the quality.

Inside my mind

did you ever feel like you were trapped
cornered and can't go anywhere
felt like there's no where to go
you just need to stay still and wonder

but it won't work because you're a wanderer
you can't be just cornered and caged
you want to fly and just go anywhere
escape and run freely everywhere

It's sad because you are stuck
You've been there sitting
doing nothing and just wasting
waiting as if something will happen

but that won't do for you
it will never be
so, you tried to escape 
You tried to fly but broke your wings

Then you were wounded
but to you it was nothing
You didn't care and wouldn't mind
as long as you can just go through
Even it's tough, you'll push through

You hate it because it's irritating
annoying and frustrating
then you promise and swear
that you'll never be like this

Your chance came, with anticipation
you are expecting so much
you know this is the time
You're getting there, slowly

You will see yourself there
running with all your strength
pushing through, so persistent
you don't care what will be broken
All you can do is just to move forward

Now, nothing matters
You just do everything you want
you have to dream high and make it right
keep moving forward, one step at a time

You're getting there
just keep moving, move forward
step, walk and run more
do it more and more

you shouldn't stop
your mind tells you not stop
step forward, move forward
don't let it slide, don't stop

never make yourself to stop
don't make yourself to like it
just keep on moving,
don't make yourself used to it

that won't really work
You're losing yourself
you might be lost
so now surely, you are found.
