Imperfect but Still Blessed

I admit I have a lot of flaws and imperfections. But there are things I'm still thankful to have.

Physically, my face is somewhat wide, my height is below average and my body's not sexy. At least I'm healthy. I have two eyes that can see, two ears that can hear, two hands, a nose that can smell, a tounge that can taste. For short, my body's complete and can function. And I thank God for that.

My family's not rich too. We can't buy expensive clothes, shoes, vehicles and jewelries. But we afford to eat 3 or more times a day. We have shelter and own house too. We have nice clothes to wear. We afford to go to mall and amusement parks to bond together and have fun. We afford to buy gadgets. And some basic necessities. We may not be rich and famous, but we're happy and complete. And I thank God for that. For having this kind of family. They're not perfect but I love them. They're always there to support me in spite of everything.

I have good friends too, who listens to my stories. I've never been bullied in school. I never failed my subjects because I don't want to disappoint my parents.

I don't have boyfriend but I have my brother and cousins too. They're enough for now. I know I'll find that someone soon.
I'm happy for what I have now. And I'm thankful for these blessings. I'm contented with it but still, I have dreams too. I wanted to have my own house, car, clothes and live happily with my partner. That's what every girls dream, right? I dream of that too. Someday.. Yeah someday... :)

What Happened to Our Promises?

NP: DATI by Sam Conception

It was 3 years already since you said your promise....
You promised you'll wait for me no matter how long it will take. You said you'll court me when we're in legal age and when we already have our degrees.
I still remember our chats, your wall posts, all those sweet words you've said and the memories we shared together which made me fall in love with you, deeply.
I believed in you. I believed in everything you said. You weren't my first love but I loved you. I planned my future with you. 

You'll be my driver, right? Because drivers are sweet lovers. Haha. Do you still remember that? Because I do.
I promised that I'll wait for you, right? And I'm willing to do that.

BUT WHAT HAPPENED?

After all those memories we've shared and the trials we've overcome together, you're going away. Have you already let me go? Because I haven't let you. You already moved on, didn't you? Then what about me? Have you consider my feelings? Last time we talked we agreed to just let things be. Right. That's it. You even said we are not the same just like before. And you're being linked to other girl. Maybe your feelings for me already faded. Don't worry I know you loved me too back then. And I thank you for the happiness and lessons you've brought to me. I'm just hoping and waiting here without assurance. And I cannot blame you with that.
These are words left unspoken. I don't have the guts say these things to you. Will you ever read this post? Maybe no. Maybe yes. But when? When you already have girlfriend? Please just be happy. I know you are. Even without me.

I'll move on. I swear. It may take time but I will. And I hope this time, I'll succeed.

Feelings Speak the Loudest

They say "ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS" . And I agree to this quotation. To see is to believe, right? We can say what we want to say, but we must do to make it true .
But I found out that if ACTION SPEAKS LOUDER THAN WORDS, THEN FEELINGS SPEAK THE LOUDEST

I may not say it. I may not do anything to prove it. But even before I realize, my feelings is already showing my love for you. The way I look at you. The way I speak to you. My heart is shouting your name. Can you feel it too? I'm a coward for not voicing it out and for not showing it. I'm afraid of rejection. But I love you. I love you from afar and I love those smiles of yours even though I'm not with you. I'll wait for my time. If destiny will give me a chance, then I will let you see and realize how big is my love for you.


(I wrote this in my diary last January 2013)

Haba ng Hair


Paglabas ko kanina sa supermarket. Medyo marami akong dala. Then may 3 sidecar drivers doon na nag-aalok na sumakay ako ng sidecar.
"Ate sidecar ka na" SC1
"Ate Tugatog po!" SC2
"Dami mong dala miss. Sakay ka na."
Eh syempre umuulan plus ang dami ko pang pinamili edi gusto ko na talaga magsidecar. Tapos nag-unahan sila. Parang gusto na nga magbanggan e. Sasakay na sana ako sa nasa harapan kaso parang pinipilit ako nung dalawa na sa kanila na lang sumakay. Nagsimula na silang magmurahan. Huhuhu
Sobrang hirap mamili noh! Baka magtampo pa yung dalawa.
Anong ginawa ko? Naglakad na lang ako. Kung pwede ko lang kasi hatiin yung katawan ko sa tatlo para quits sila. Kung mayaman lang ako edi sana nagbayad na ako sa kanilang lahat para walang away. Para walang masaktan. Kaya ayun. Nagtiyaga na lang ako maglakad pauwi.

Dear kuya sidecar drivers,
Sorry po tinakbuhan ko kayo kanina. Hirap po kasing mamili. Pinaasa ko yata kayo. Lol. Sana po kapag may naunang makakuha ng pasahero sa inyo magpaubaya na yung iba. Huwag mag-away at magmurahan dahil don. May darating pa naman dyan. Hintay hintay lang :)

'Love' is Like a 'Beauty Soap'

I went to the supermarket to buy some groceries when I cross the soap sections. I saw different brands of beauty soap. Belo, Skin White, Silka, Seriously White by Splash, Palmolive, Safeguard, Dove and etc.
I recall the brands' advertisements  showing how good that product is to your skin. I'm using Dove that time. I don't even have pimples. But I want something new. I  decided to try Belo, Silka and Palmolive to see if they're better for me. Of course one at a time. But I got pimples since I tried them! So I returned to using Dove and yeah, we're really in good terms. NOTE: This is not endorsement u know. Haha.
I remember our TLE lesson last year: KNOW WHAT TYPE is your skin and CHOOSE WHAT'S BEST AND COMPATIBLE TO YOU.

Just like in love. No matter how good-looking and handsome those other guys you see, if they're not meant for you then you're not compatible with each other.

If you are stable with whom you have right now, then be contented and don't look and search for others.

To My Bestfriend

Here's to the bestest bestfriend ever! Hi to my Bhest / Sissy / Twin / Cabrito / BEBANG!

First of all, I'm so thankful to have a bestfriend like you. When I first saw you four years ago in our classroom, I thought you're snobber and masungit. But I'm wrong. As time goes by, especially when we got into the same group of friends which is 9TF, I realized you're kind, understanding, responsible and talented person.
How our friendship started? I think we got close to each other when we go home from school and it's just that we are on the same way. I remember during our freshmen year, we rode a jeep from UE going to LETRE with your mom and we are talking about my first crush, who is already into other girl. I was disappointed that time then you said there are other hot cuties in our university, which I agreed to. :)

We have lots of similarities. They said we look like each other. Aside from that, we love jokes, we love scrapbooking, we love reading novels and stories in Wattpad and we care about our academics because we don't want to disappoint our families.

Our differences? Well, we have different preferred type of guy. We NEVER EVER have crush on the same person at the same time. And that's a big advantage. LOL. I'm a probinsyana girl and you're the Manila girl. You're rich and I'm on the average. Haha ;)
Well, we faced misunderstandings too. Mostly about acads? Because being in the science-based section is a competition. But well it's over. As time goes by, we learned to help each other and not compete, right? I'm so sorry for my shortcomings and selfishness sometimes. I'm sorry. :( We also have misunderstandings about little things when we got into rumors blah blah, and about leaving me during break time. HAHAHA LOLS.

You were there in times I wanted to tell my stories: When I got awards, when I joined contest, when I faced problems in my acads and family and for everything that happened in my four years that we were bestfriends. THANK YOU SO MUCH for listening and understanding. If I'm wrong, you wouldn't tolerate me. On the other hand, you'll cheer me up when I'm down. You never ceased to listen to my dramas especially to my epic love story! HAHAHA if you know what I mean. ;) Even up to now, we're into different universities. But still, you visit me in our house, make chikas and communicate regularly. :*

THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING BEBANG! ALWAYS REMEMBER THAT I LOVE YOU SO MUCH AND I'M ALWAYS HERE FOR YOU! :) XOXO 





PS: To Patricia, Ana, Rhoan, Mhille and etc., don't be jealous. I LOVE YOU ALL GIRLS! :) xoxoxoxo

Me every period:

I'M BLEEDING THIS MUCH.
AM I DYING?
Embedded image permalink


Periods are the worst time of the month for females. We feel like we’re dying, we hate everyone and everything, work isn’t optional and all we want to do is crawl into our beds and never come out. Our guy friends, boyfriends and dads can’t feel our pain, but all of the women in our lives can relate.

We love to bitch about our periods, regardless of the fact that we’ve been dealing with them every month since we were 13(ish). It doesn’t matter; girls love to complain and love to have people who will listen. Bitching about your period basically ensures a great audience.
We have a love/hate relationships with our periods because it’s an excuse to eat whatever we want and to be a huge bitch, to sum it all up. No? Just me? No way.
More of that later. What are the most common phrases women say to one another during this terrible time? Check it out: Things Every Girl Said While She's On Her Period

On my Way to Nirvana

On my Way to Nirvana
by Richanela G. Flores

I still remember when we all filed into this classroom four years ago. We looked playful,young girls and boys. But now, we’re all matured, grown-up ladies and gentlemen.

Ups and downs; friends and enemies; smiles and tears; and victories and trials are part of my journey. There are a lot of things that took place, and surely there are so many changes that happened to me--- physically, emotionally, socially and intellectually.

I’m writing this piece for you, my dear younger earthlings, to share some of the lessons I learned in my high school life.

“Everything happens for a reason.” As we grow older, things seem more complicated than the past. Challenges and trials are inevitable. Trials come for a reason we don’t know. We fail in some subjects, lose in some competitions; however, life goes on. Go with the flow. That’s it. Worrying, crying, bragging, and over thinking make no sense at all. Enjoy your journey, face the challenges, trust God, do your best, and you’ll see how great life is.

“Do not compare yourself to other people.” We don’t know what other people are going through, so we shouldn’t judge them. Don’t envy what other kids have. Count your blessings instead. Enjoy and treasure what you have at the moment.

“No man is an island.” You’re not alone! Get along well with others! Find good friends.It’s either they inspire you or you’re the one to inspire them. They are your brothers and sisters in school. 

“True love waits.  In the long run, you’ll  meet different people. Surely, you’ll  admire some of them. Crush? That’s normal in teenagers. Boyfriend-and-girlfriend relationship?In my opinion, there’s nothing bad in that, as long as it serves as inspiration in your studies and everyday life. However, don’t focus too much in love. You’re too young to be stressed in that thing. YOLO(You only live once)! There is this right person destined for you in the right time and for that perfect reason. All you have to do is to wait.

“Be yourself.”  Don’t change who you are just because people tell you to do so. You are yourself. You are unique.

“Don’t rush things.” Great things take time. Be quick, but don’t hurry. Never force things into happening. Let everything fall into place just how it should, on its own. If it’s meant to happen, it  will  eventually happen. Let things happen naturally and you will notice how much happier you will be when they happen unexpectedly. 

“In the end, we only regret the chances we didn’t take.” Opportunity knocks once,so grab it. Some things are meant to be your first and last. Second chances are rare, so use your first chance wisely. 

“Today is never too late to start something new.” Nobody’s perfect. If you fail today,there’s always tomorrow. 

I know that we should never have regrets. We should live life to the fullest and just go for it. But once in my life, I actually do regret. It is something that I continually thought about and hoped to change to make it better. However, after it ended, I learned so much about myself and know the value of the lesson it brought. I never thought that I would have that opportunity. We should just learn from our experiences and move on instead of regretting it.

People make mistakes, and that’s normal. Some of us wishes to turn back time just to correct or delete the mistakes we’ve done. If only there is a time machine that we can use to go back in the past just to edit or delete those not-so-good happenings in our lives, we would purchase and use those time machines. However, those time machines just exist in fictional stories, cartoons, and movies. Time is very precious in the fact that we can’t get and buy it anywhere, so we should use and consume it wisely. We should put and exert our best for every opportunity that came in our lives, because some chances given to us is just now or never.

If God can forgive people for their countless sins, why do some people can’t forgive others and give them second chance? Don’t they think that the second time will work out better than the first since people already learned their lesson in the first one?

I do believe that we all need second chances. Nobody’s perfect. I may be in my 700th second chance right now, but I’m not ashamed to admit it. Because even though I have failed a lot, it means I have tried a lot, too.

We rarely get things right in the first time. Almost every major accomplishment in a person’s life starts with trying again and again in spite of difficulties, discouragement, and obstacles we encounter.

They say that the only difference between an opportunity and an obstacle is attitude. Getting a second chance in life is about giving yourself the opportunity to grow beyond your past failures. It’s about positively adjusting your attitude toward future possibilities.

When people struggle, it makes them stronger in the end. I am lucky to be still alive today, and I am grateful for what I have now and who I am.


A quote from Dawn Stanyon that inspires me a lot: “It’s okay not to be perfect. It’s okay to make mistakes. It’s okay to do something that you wish you hadn’t done, because if you hadn’t done those things, you never grow.”

UPM Crushes.... Wait what?

One rainy evening, my blockmate mentioned me on Twitter telling me that I have secret admirer. I laugh. I was like: 'WHAT? I HAVE NO IDEA DUDE' I asked her why and where and how did she thought I have an admirer. Then she sends me the screenshot of the post in UPM Crushes. Oh my!
