We meet again! my sincerest apologies for my sudden absence without prior notice. It has been months since I was away and I have been through a lot of adventures which I will unfold day by day. I would rather not to unroll my scroll of tedious excuses why I was not able to get in touch by a single post. To make up for it and get things back to where they once were, I’ll come back to you all bigger and greater!
Formerly youngcampbell.blogspot.com, I shall bring you a revolutionized version. Sit back and relax, it's going to be an awesome bumpy ride. xx
coming this MAY.

Let me collect the pieces of me shattered around. I am not screwed. I just feel that I have no right to say or type anything until something better and greater happens in my life. I passed the board examination. I have a part time job. But I feel like it's not enough. There is a need of change in perception, on how I see life. I need enlightenment. I am not screwed. I just need to take a breath or two.
I'll be back.

The picture is that of a 21-week-old unborn baby named Samuel Alexander Armas, who is being operated on by surgeon named Joseph Bruner. The baby was diagnosed with spina bifida and would not survive if removed from his mother’s womb. Little Samuel’s mother, Julie Armas, is an obstetrics nurse in Atlanta. She knew of Dr. Bruner’s remarkable surgical procedure. Practicing at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, he performs these special operations while the baby is still in the womb.
During the procedure, the doctor removes the uterus via C-section and makes a small incision to operate on the baby. As Dr. Bruner completed the surgery on Samuel, the little guy reached his tiny, but fully developed hand through the incision and firmly grasped the surgeon’s finger. Dr. Bruner was reported as saying that when his finger was grasped, it was the most emotional moment of his life, and that for an instant during the procedure he was just frozen, totally immobile.
The photograph captures this amazing event with perfect clarity. The editors titled the picture, “Hand of Hope.” The text explaining the picture begins, “The tiny hand of 21-week-old fetus Samuel Alexander Armas emerges from the mother’s uterus to grasp the finger of Dr. Joseph Bruner as if thanking the doctor for the gift of life.”
Little Samuel’s mother said they “wept for days” when they saw the picture. She said, “The photo reminds us pregnancy isn’t about disability or an illness, it’s about a little person.” Samuel was born in perfect health, the operation 100 percent successful. Now see the actual picture, and it is awesome…incredible….and hey, pass it on! The world needs to see this one.

Aimlessly wandering the cyberworld, I found myself reading the whole content of Simon Hancock's blog just by one sitting. Aside from its witty and genuine writings, I was inspired to do a style of post similar to his writing. I always have random thoughts coming from eccentric nowhere, sweet memories that give me chuckles and other times senseless naive perspectives on whatever. All mentioned above shall be collectively written week by week and it starts NOW.
>Only mental trusts men who court other woman while he is still in a relationship.
>Don't say to a man that he is your childhood crush, you will make him feel old. My bad, Mr. TJ Manotoc, my bad.
>Watching reality shows makes me realize Filipinos are naturally nice.
>Because of Niel Etheridge, I mean the AZKALS (Philippine National Football Team), Phils became a football loving country.
>I wish aged people would stop being cold-hearted because when they die, no one will cry on their funerals.
>At some point, you feel that you have the most miserable life. Good news, most people feel the same way too, thus you are not alone.
P.S. I wrote '7 days Madness' out of nothing but because it sounds brilliant. yeah, absurd.
