Thirty days

Sa tingin mo, mahaba o maikli ang isang buwan?

Minsan parang ang tagal matapos ng isang buwan. Tulad na lamang kung may hinihintay ka, ‘yung tipong parang wala kang ibang pwedeng gawin kundi maghintay. Minsan naman parang ang bilis. Lumipas na lang ang mga araw nang hindi mo namamalayan.

Sa buhay ko ngayon, parang nabibilisan ako sa paglipas ng araw. Hindi ko nga namalayan na meron na lang pala akong tatlumpung araw para mabasa, ma-recall at makabisado ang mga napag-aralan ko na dati. Saktong tatlumpung araw na lang kasi magtetake na ako ng board exam. Medyo nahihirapan nga ako. Chill lang kasi akong estudyante dati. Gusto kong pumasa, syempre, pero hindi ako ‘yung tipong subsob talaga sa pag-aaral. ‘Pag napasa ko na ‘yung subject, karamihan dun nakalimutan ko na. Ang dami ko tuloy kailangan aralin ulit.

‘Yung isang buwan na natitira para maaral ko lahat ng kailangang aralin pakiramdaman ko fourth quarter ng isang basketball game, tapos ako ‘yung tambak na team. Tambak na ko ng mga topics na babasahin at formulas na kailangang makabisado. ‘Yung ang dami-dami kong kailangan habulin kung gusto kong manalo ‘pag tumunog na ‘yung buzzer. Ito ‘yung sitwasyon na kailangan manalo sa fourth quarter. No to overtime. Kailangan isang take lang, pasado na. Nakakahiya kasi sa pamilya ko. Kahit hindi nila sabihin para ‘di ako mapressure, alam ko namang gusto na nila akong magtrabaho.

L’amour fou ♥

The great loves are the crazy ones. 

I’ve always wanted to experience a love that won’t make me feel bored. I don’t want a routine. Of course, I want someone who makes me happy. But there’s gotta be more than that.  Perfection is overrated. I don’t want a perfect guy. I just want someone who can tolerate the weirdness in me, someone who’s cool and funny. A guy who’s like a best friend and loves me so much. I want a crazy love, a frustrating love — with screaming and fighting, a roller coaster kind of rush. I want a love that will make people go, “You’re still together?! Wow!”, a love where we’ve been together for so long but there are still butterflies.

What we have is a great love. It’s complicated, intense, all-consuming. No matter what we do and how much we fight, it’ll always pull us in. What’s mere happiness in the face of all that, right?

Thank you Jane for nominating me! :)

So I have to answer some questions, nominate five blogs and ask them random questions. Is that right? Haha

Here it is.

1. What was your favorite birthday?

That would be my 7th birthday. My whole family was there. All my childhood friends were there. There were lots of food. And I don’t have a care in the world.

2. Which song do you hate the most?

I don’t have any. Sure, there are some songs that I don’t like but I don’t hate them.

3. What is your favorite word?

Serendipity. It means finding something good without looking for it.

4. What’s the greatest thing about being your nationality?

We always smile. Whatever is happening in our lives, we still find something that makes us smile.

5. What’s the best piece of advice anyone has ever given you?

“Not having a lot of money shouldn’t be a reason not to achieve your dreams.”

That was in my parents’ letter for me in my sixth grade retreat.

French.

7. Which foreign country do you like the most?

England. I really, really want to go there someday.

Counting Stars by OneRepublic

9. What makes you nervous?

Public speaking, and being around someone I’m not comfortable with.

10. What was the first film you remember seeing at the cinema?

I think it was Kokey. Haha!

I nominate these awesome bloggers:

Little onion

Your random questions are:

  4. What’s your favorite quote?
  5. Tell the story of your life using lyrics from a song.

This was fun! :)

And just like that, one year has passed.

HAPPY FIRST ANNIVERSARY TO MY BLOG!  :)

greeting

I remember when I started this. I just wanted to have a blog where I can post anything I want. I already have a Tumblr account, but that’s mostly for my fangirling. Wherein here, my posts were really personal. Sometimes, I can’t think of new entries so I would just post a quote or pictures.  I even did Day Challenges! I know I’m not a good writer. I actually hate doing essays in class.  But I do my best, and that’s okay. I made this blog for myself, not for my English teacher. Right? Hahaha!

To everyone who follows and visit my blog, who likes and leaves comments on my posts, THANK YOU VERY MUCH! Cheers, guys! :))

Note to self: Life is too short to worry about stupid things.

I tend to worry about things I shouldn’t be worried about. Like what will happen a year from now? Will I be successful by then? I really hope so. Will I get to have my dream job? What if I disappoint my family? I’m afraid of failing. I’m afraid of not being enough. Not being good enough, not smart enough, not pretty enough. I act like I don’t care what people think and say about me, but I do.

And then I realized that I shouldn’t be worried of things I really cannot control. Some things just don’t go according to plan. If I fail at something, maybe that’s just wasn’t meant for me. Maybe I am destined for something else, for something better. There’s this quote that I’ve read before, “If you didn’t give up on getting there, then you’re not on the wrong road because everything in this world is connected.”

remindyourself

As for not being enough, I cannot do anything about what other people would think. I can’t please everybody, right? So I’m just going to be who I am, if they can’t accept that then I’m better off without those who can’t like me as I am. I’m just going to live my life the way I want to.  You should, too.

neverchangewhatyoufeel

Go ahead. Take chances. Tell the truth. Date someone totally wrong for you. Say no. Spend all your cash. Get to know someone random. Be random. Say I love you. Sing out loud.  Laugh at stupid jokes. Cry. Apologize.  Tell someone how much he/she means to you.  Tell a jerk what you think. Laugh until your stomach hurts. Live life. Regret nothing.

PS. Photos were from my Tumblr account.

I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For

I think this is the theme song of my life right now.  But I also think this could be the theme song of every one of us. We are always  searching for something. We always look for something that’s not there. We were never contented. That’s why we keep looking even though we don’t really know what we were looking for. And I hope we would find whatever it is. :)

Hannah's birthdayIt was so good seeing these two girls again. The last time we saw each other was a few months ago. We’ve been busy. I’ve missed them so much!

Best friends are people you know you don’t need to talk to every single day. You don’t even need to talk to each other for weeks, but when you do, it’s like you never stopped talking.
