Today is my second day away from home. I miss my family, friends and that special someone. I wish Nandito Sya. Katabi ko sa pag tulog. It is a very great experience to be out here in the wilderness hearing birds chirp so loud and clear. Absorbing the beauty of Yosemite. Sana sa susunod kasama ko sya. Miss na miss ko na sya kahit hindi kami mag syota. I wish all my friends are here with me. But it’s fun also because I’m still with a few friends. :) Pero ang gusto ko talagang kasama ditto ay sya.

Right now I’m at LeConte Point. Chillin' like a villain, ate some gummy worms enjoying the wind. I got super tan with mosquito bites on my arms. It’s so beautiful up here. What motivated me to come up here is Beatriz. She’s partly the reason why I came here in Yosemite. Coming up here was a struggle though. I was very tired. Sweating a lot and very sore from my whole body. It is such a beautiful view I want my special someone to be here so that we can be together on the mountain top.

What wilderness has taught me is to be respectful of the land. It made me realize how bad it is to use chemical in our body and how bad it is to pollute other people’s property. It may be uncomfortable to live in the wild without the things I’m not really use to having but it may also teach me a lesson to be more focused on myself and studies other than friends and other things.
