Ye. You’re welcome.
If my blog is tangible, I’d imagine it as a box filled with cobwebs and dust. All because I can’t keep a promise to update this blog every now and then, I suck. Whatever, I blame school haha! No, I couldn’t blame school. Actually, I thank school for showing me what the world really is and when I say world, I mean “reality”. Most especially, I thank reality for letting me meet new people. But that guy over there is an exception, I don’t thank reality for him. I thank God =) Naks. Cheesy, diba?
Since I always blog about events that happened 1-2 mos ago here’s a sample. (What) Axel and I went on a movie date last October, we watched Carrie and strolled around the mall. Also, I heard him again saying his famous line whenever I introduce him into something new, “Yay, first time ko kumain dito. And ikaw kasama ko” For that, I always give him a shy smile. We ate at Ramen X for lunch, I know how much he love anything Japanese so I think Ramen X was just perfect. Then, we watched Carrie. After that, we went to Fully Booked ahhh I could remember they were playing Ed Sheeran’s Drunk at some point. The feels I just love it. And for dinner we ate at Pancake House, we both love Pancake House because this was where we had our first date. He took me home at around 8 and I was just so happy.
I’d like to thank this guy for always being there for me even though I’m such a moody person. Probably he has this bucket full of “pasensya” and he would bring it anywhere we go haha! Anyway, I just remember that this coming 14th it is our 7th month together. Wait, together sounds like we’re official so, I guess I should say it as “7th month of exclusively dating” as what my friend said. Whatever it is, I am always thankful for him and for making me happy. ♥
Sepanx with summer.
Cagbalete Island with the best people.
You have the most contagious smile ever ♡
It actually pisses me off so much that there’s the whole WORLD out there, yet I’m just going to school every day and learning things that I am - for the most part - completely apathetic towards and I have so little motivation, yet I could be off finding wonderful things in foreign cities or climbing mountains or helping people or just wandering, and I feel like I’d learn so much more doing that instead, really.
"Hey man, take my picture!"
"I can’t do it. It’s too dark."
"Yeah, we need some light. Let’s go over there."
"Are you homeless?"
"Yes, I am."
"How long have you been homeless?"
"15 years. I’ve been in Boston 8 months. Before that I was in Washington, Virginia, New York, Philadelphia, Louisiana, Florida…"
"Why didn’t you stay in Florida? It’s so much warmer."
"I wanted to see my family. But they don’t want to see me. They don’t understand depression. They treat me like dirt. Homeless people treat me better than my family."
"And what happened 15 years ago? How did you end up on the streets?"
"I tried to burn myself twice. I had 30 surgeries. I was dead two times, but God brought me back. I don’t know why."
"And why did you do it?"
"I was depressed. Why you crying?"
"Because you are a beautiful person, and my family is really messed up, and I’ve been very depressed. I think I can understand you."
"Yes, I am a good person. And when you take people’s pictures, don’t disrespect them."
"No, man, I won’t. I like people. That’s why I take their pictures."
"And when you make your portfolio, don’t denigrate people. Let the pictures speak for themselves."
"I will. Are you safe on the streets?"
"Yes, I am…And now I have $8 to buy me some food."
"That’s all I have. Next time I see you, I will give you more."
"No, man. It ain’t all about money. Give me a hug. And next time you see me, give me a hug again. And thanks for taking my picture."
Our other friends under the sea.

I haven’t had the perfect time to blog since 1st term started. I hardly had enough time for anything else other than the usual school work. But I guess it’s good since I’ve got to step out and socialize rather than being socially handicapped (which I still am… somehow lol)
Yesterday, we wrapped up the last day of 1st term aka zombie term. I can’t believe 1st term is finally over, I’ve survived the 11 weeks of TV Production, Radio Production, Writing for Print and Thesis Proposal. I just have to wait for our final grades to be posted. I wish all of my hard works would pay off.
Anyway, here’s a little throwback for the past few weeks… months
Last August 22, A and I celebrated our 100th day. I know it sounds too Korean, blame “My Sassy Girl” Haha! I let him watch it during the summer break and I didn’t know that he already counted the days, starting from the 14th of May. So yep, we had lunch during that day and he surprised me (well not anymore because I already know his plans *wink*) with a long stemmed rose. It literally made me go “awwww” because he’s the first guy ever who gave me a rose ♡
At the studio, recording for our first album…. not. I spent most of my time at our school’s radio booth ahhh my humble abode. How I wish I could sing like Beyonce and do legit recordings.
My favorite shoes. I don’t know why but ever since the beginning of 1st term, I prefer wearing shirts, pants and sneakers. A friend of mine once said, “Baka mamaya magdala na tayo ng skate board” I guess I find it comfortable and more school-ish since our school has a very strict dress code.
Hopefully through the days and weeks, I’ll be able to find time for ~blogging~. Thank you to those people who still enjoy my little island on cyberspace.
