Lantawanan Beach Resort: A quest to unwind

The stress is on. It is difficult for you to reconcile. You then try to imagine the common fever – face mask here, face shield there, and what-not! Stressful to think, you cannot just yell on top of your lungs or even post some foul language and expression on social media. Once you do, you can be penalized. So, you try to zephyr your mouth and begin to think – why not just go somewhere.

Now, you are here at Purok 5 Sitio Magkot, Barangay Lanca, Mati City, Davao Oriental, Mindanao, Philippines. It is fun. You travel so far away to unwind and even spend two or three days in Davao to remove hassle and stress. You can think now if lodging houses, inns, or hotels are open. Perhaps, you think to spend swimming overnight. Well, you do not want to think about it now. As long as step on your feet on the sand and in the water, you cannot complain. It feels magic that you cannot say a word.

The water is inviting. It fascinates you. Of course, you can tell if you visit there. To tell you based on other people’s experiences, the beach water captivates their hearts. So, none can complain or they are even under the hypnotic surroundings of Lantawanan Beach Resort.

Now, you want to go there with friends. Pack your bags including your snacks, swimming apparel, and what-not. Oh, did you say the entrance fee?

Well, there is no entrance fee. But, you can donate any amount. According to Mindanao Recreational Hub on its FB page, kamo na daw bahala kung pila ihatag ninyo sa management sa resort. In other words, your generosity matters at this point. However, it is fine. The management does not demand anything, only to maintain the cleanliness of the area.

Do not fret. You cannot find any cottages there. There isn’t one either if you try to find it even harder. Nevertheless, the beach water always calls you to take a plunge. When you go there, you feel like you are in Siargao.

The resort is clean. It has fine white sand. The crystal clear water truly enthralls you to dive and swim. As the wind gets cold and refreshing, you feel something fresh and comforting. Sabi nga nila – makatanggal daw sa stress. Well, that is so fantastic and pretty amazing remarks.

Amihan Sa Dahican: A stirring journey to make

One strange night came. You felt dizzy. Now, you stood in a little while. You tried to find your balance. As you moved your head toward the clock on the wall, you felt certain that something was bizarre. You just checked your watch. It was 8 P.M., but your muscle and nerve grew numb. You could not move a muscle and you did not feel anything. So, you tried to walk slowly and go to bed. Right there, you lied in bed flat and motionless. So, you closed your eyes. After a few minutes, you heard a commotion outside. People were shouting. So, you stood up slowly. You walked toward the window to see where the noise came. You opened the window and saw raging flames scattered from all directions. You thought the fire could reach you in minutes. You were just a block away. Now, you could not move. You turned your head slowly to your bed. You could not decide whether you went back to bed or you got ready to escape from the fire. Then, you walked slowly to your bed. Surprisingly, you saw yourself lying. “What happened?” You asked. You asked yourself why you were lying. You knew you stood there all along. “Am I dead?” You thought. This time you were trembling. You got closer to your body and tried to wake yourself up. However, you failed. You remained asleep. Now, you cried. You thought you were dead. “Ouch!” You shouted. “It is 8: 00 A.M. Try to water the weeds. If you want hot chocolate, you can have it. It is on the table. I just boiled the water.” My mother said.

3 Reasons Why Students Get Easily Flunked

Students, these days, are at risk of failing in their studies. At any length and pace, they get poor results in their academic examinations. Even if they come to class or submit projects and requirements, they still fail to advance their academic levels. They cannot even progress despite the efforts to submit reports. The problem now depends on the ability of the students to realize their mistakes and manage their time to focus on their academic tracks. Though students, from time to time, hire tutors to help them improve their academic scores, they easily fail because of peer pressure stress, teacher factor, and technology interference.

Peer Pressure Factor

Students who cannot refuse to discard friends’ gimmick and party invitations tend to jeopardize their studies. They even lose their focus on resolving their academic projects and tasks due to friends’ commitments to do some extramural activities. Oftentimes, they go to the movie theaters in the afternoon and the bars and casinos in the evening. Instead of studying their lessons, they set their obligations with friends to enjoy their college life. Then, they drink too many alcoholic beverages and liquors at parties, abandon their studies, and forget assignments and projects. Without saying anything to refuse from classmates’ and friends’ tempting party gimmicks, students easily get failing marks and retake the course program.

Teacher Factor

Students, occasionally, decide to stop and drop the subjects because of their teachers. On the first day of school, when teachers lay down their semesters’ plans and projects, students slowly lose the courage to attend the class lectures the next day. They cut classes and go somewhere else remote to escape from their lectures. Sometimes, they claim that they do not like the teachers’ teaching strategies and styles. On the following day, they claim that their teachers do not exert their efforts to teach the subjects with finesse and panache. As such, students cannot pass the tests and fail to proceed.

Technology Factor

Advanced electronics and other technologies can alter some set priorities among students. For example, students grow addicted to playing mobile phones and video games without preparing any materials and tools for their studies. They cannot study properly because they do not have proper study plans and strategies to succeed in college. They even lack the courage to advance their studies to the next level. Somehow, they depend on the Internet for their assignments and reports. They even fail to improve their studies and take extra effort to change academically through scores and tests. As such, they easily fail to pass the courses if they do prioritize the use of their mobile phones, laptop computers, and other electronic devices.

Indeed, abandoning study plans, allowing classmates’ interference toward learning, and letting technologies to ruin concentration and focus are three powerful factors that permit students to fail easily. Because they allow their classmates and friends to distort their focus, they impossibly advance to the next level. They cannot even find any means and ways to learn new lessons, pay attention to their studies, and thrive in the process of learning. As they fail to change their lazy and lousy attitudes, they cannot focus on their studies. At some point, they tend to complain that they do not like their teachers’ teaching styles. They even prejudge their them and choose to stop schooling, for no reason at all. These superficial reasons only add to the significant outcomes that students easily fail in college due to a lack of focus and addiction to technologies. For that reason, students without doubts, fail in college.
