In A Nutshell

"The most important things are the hardest to say." -Stephen King
Eriq Anne. 18. UP Diliman.
 Stranger/s (I hope)

I didn’t really expect too much for my birthday this year. Aside from me being busy with school, you know it’s a 19th birthday, it’s not 18th or anything special, although I’ve had surprise over the past years. But this year I thought it would be uneventful.

I’m actually a birthday person. Like, I want you to greet me because it’s my birthday. And I expect you to know that it’s my birthday. I hate it when people forget my birthday. It’s my day, this is the only day I get. Give it to me. LOL

Anyway, this year established that I really am a Daddy’s girl. Mom, if you’re reading this, it’s obvious that you love my sister more than you love me, but that’s fine. I just sort of expected that since I have one brother, he’s automatically my Dad’s favorite. But no. I’m spoiled by my Dad! Heh!

Thank you Papa for all the food, and the legit cake (not the cake roll! yes!) that you gave me! Also for being my driver and my alalay whenever I need you. Hehe! Also to my Mom who helps me with my studies, especially when it deals with the law! Thank you to all my friends, who gave me tight hugs and kisses! Who greeted me through Facebook and Twitter! I appreciate it so much :)

I remember Ramon Bautista saying that you can have a boyfriend when you’re nineteen…kasie nineteendihan mo na ang buhay. I just turned nineteen but I still don’t have a clue what life is. So I guess I remain single. For now.

Cheers to nineteen years!

Guest ako sa Usapang Midya. Makinig kayo please charr hahahaha

I need more sleep. Holy shit.

My readings are drowning me.

Sa wakaaaaas! I was so rooting for the UP MBT to win this time. Hurrah for breaking our super long overdue losing streak!!

Sayang wala ako sa Bonfire, it would’ve been so much fun! :( May rumors na andun daw yung Eraserheads, but of course paasa ka Raymund. :( =))

Also sayang dapat nanood ako nang live, super saya ng atmosphere pag nanalo ang UP, kasi andun ang Pep Squad and drummers, so super maingay. (Come to our football games, madalas kaming manalo, kaya madalas maingay sa football field. Hehehe.)

UP, fight!!!

Hotel King (2014)

Yes!! I finally finished Hotel King. Honestly. This show was a total rollercoaster ride. Extremely dangerous to watch. Not for the weak-hearted.

I watched this because of Lee Dong Wook at first, but as it went on, I really loved the story and the characters. I’m actually disappointed because there was no love triangle between Jae Wan, Mo Ne and Cha Su Wan. Like, was I the only one waiting for it? Also, why didn’t they continue the Roman Lee and Song Chae Kyung team when Roman came back? That would’ve been great.

I particularly liked that episode 32 was sort of an episode for the romance, because the drama overall had a familial sort of theme. And I honestly haven’t met an antagonist as evil as Lee Jung Goo. I swear. That guy. Hmp. Thumbs up to Lee Deok Hwa because he made believe he was really evil when in real life he’s really a cute ahjussi.

Anyway, watch this! It’s great!

Dito nagsimula ang lahat. Mula sa screening, hanggang sa final interview hanggang sa text message na ito.Sunday nga pala ngayon. For the past 2 months tuwing Sunday or Thursday nasa CEM Audi ako, o kaya sa Tabernaculo or kaya sa Philippine Are na. Mamimiss ko lahat ng mga receptionists na naging kasama ko all throughout the Centennial preparation at celebration. Pati na yung linyang “Sinong may matalinong tanong at ayaw pang umuwi?” ni Ka Reden. Lalo na yung mga haggard moments sa bus habang nagbibihis at nag-aayos ng buhok at mukha para maging presentable sa mga delegates. Pati na yung legendary adobo ng Unlad canteen, at ang kalbaryo namin para lang makakuha ng pagkain. Yung baho, dumi at putik na tinitiis papunta sa mahabang pila sa canteen, para makakain ng adobo, makainom ng Chooga Juice at AquaSweet Mineral water. Yung ilang oras na pagtayo sa Column 9 & 10 ng Upper Tier B sa Door 35 para salubungin ang mga bisita, pati yung pagturo sa mga column sa taas. Pati na rin yung mga kapatid na pinaiyak ako at pinasakit ang ulo ko dahil hindi nila mahanap yung upuan nila. Lahat ng pagod, gutom, kawalan ng tulog, worth it lahat. Sobrang clingy ko lang, miss ko na sila. Mamimiss ko lahaaaat. Salamat Ama at isa ako sa pinahintulutan Mong tumupad ng tungkulin sa pagdiriwang ng Sentenaryo ng Iyong Iglesia. Sa Iyo po lahat ng kapurihan.

After n years. Kinapalan ko na mukha ko at nagpa-picture. =))

At least di na ako awkward pag kasama ko siya, at inaapi ko na siya ngayon. Hehehe.

Hello there. Bitterness and rage might be the emotions that prevail in your system. It’s okay. It’s going to be okay. Things may not have worked out the way you wanted it too but always remember this — God has a master plan for us. From the time we were born, God has planned every path to forge, every hurdle to overcome, every detour you must take, the people you will meet. This may seem ludicrous at first — trust me, the moment I heard that, I can’t help but feel more frustrated.

Life is not running at theoretical capacity. Life may have its set of norms — standards. But remember what our professors told us? It is inevitable that there will be unfavorable variances. It just so happens that you’re experiencing one right now. Yes, it is difficult starting from rock bottom. It is painful to see your friends post photos of their testimonial dinners, thanksgiving parties and status updates of being hired. It is most painful to see your family members crying. It is unbearable. But would you rather settle for that situation?

I know it may be difficult but keep moving. You won’t be less of a person when you failed. You’re still the same person six months ago. This is just a setback. The Big Guy’s preparing you for your comeback. 

Ever wonder why God gave you this trial? Because He’s confident that you’ll make it through. Muster all the strength you can muster, dust yourself off the ground and keep walking, keep trying, keep the faith. 

You can do it.

Goodbye July, hello August.

July has definitely been a productive month! Being a receptionist for the INC Centennial celebration has kept me busy the whole month. It was tiring, yes, but I felt fulfilled! And now, my birthday month has come! May it be a month full of happiness and blessings. :)

Medyo di na ako awkward sa kanya. Kasi nasasabihan ko na siya ng:

"Miss mo na ko no? Bat mo ba ko sinusundan?"

"Ano ba yan, puro ikaw nakikita ko. Pwede ba iba naman? nagsasawa na ko sa mukha mo eh."

Pakapalan ng mukha. Wala, eh. Naka-gown pa kasi ako nung nagkita kami. Haynako.

"Nakita mo si Daddy?"

Tinanong niya saken yan nung nagkita kame. Di ko alam kung kikiligin ako o matatawa. After ilang years, ikaw pa rin?

"Nakita mo si Jasmine?"

Tangina hindi ako tanungan ng nawawalang tao. Lalo na ng mga babae mo. Bwiset.

I am honestly so happy right now. Kahit naibalik lang sa dati yung bracket ko at hindi bumaba, at least dininig yung appeal ko.
