Last Day of 2013

So, this will be my last post for this year, 2013!!! (obviously lol)

I haven’t posted anything in 3 months and i’m so sorry for that. This blog entry will contain all the important events that happened in my 2013. Not all of them may seem important to you but they are to me because these will be the things that made me feel happy, sad, important and all different emotions.

Let’s start!

These photos were taken in January during my Tito and Lola’s birthday. Their bdays aren’t on the same day but the family just decided to spend on one day cause it’s more convenient for everyone since we don’t live near one another. I don’t actually remember anything in particular about this day. We just skyped with my Titos in the US and the kids were playing, oh they were really enjoying the time cause it’s not that often that they see each other. And as for me.. well, I think I ate a lot.. like i always do during family gatherings. 🙂

This was on Valentine’s Day! I don’t have a boyfriend so I just spent it at school with friends. The first photo was taken inside my school. The Student Council at that time held a movie marathon so we decided to go because we actually have nothing else to do. The other two photos were taken inside the Eastwood Mall. They had like a special “event” (idk what it’s called, sorry) for chocolates and so we went there then took a picture behind that heart thingy. 😛 The mall was actually just in front of my school… Valentine’s was a lazy day for us. Haha. 😀

OH! The SC also had this BINGO contest thing and my friend won so she treated us some McDonald’s 🙂

INFOLYMPICS :))

My friend and I had the chance to take a picture with Jeric Teng. He went here because he plays for the Informatics Icons for the D-League. They just gave a few encouraging words and hoped that we all support them in the competition. He’s super tall! Or mayber i’m just super short. hahaha 😛 The second pic was taken during the second day of the infolympics. I was reading “Looking for Alaska” by John Green at the time and I actually brought the book with me as you can see in the picture.

This was our project in Logic Design. Alou and I thought we wouldn’t be able to finish this one because we didn’t pay that much attention in this class (sorry, sir Tacs :D) but fortunately, we managed to complete it and make it work. Alou was going through a hard time during the making of this project so I had to be more understanding and patient with her. Hi Alou! LOL.

I don’t remember if this was a fieldtrip or a team-building event.. but it was fun 🙂 We got to swim after we went through all the obstacle courses. Then I actually got to touch a cow or a sheep or a carabao’s back… I don’t know what it’s called.. but it was something on it’s back which was similar to a camel’s but it was so soft when you touch it. It looked hard but it’s not.. get it? Haha 😛

This was a despedida party for my friend, Honeyme and also a birthday party for her. Well, it was a party for the gang 😀 She was going to leave to Mindanao and stay there for good with her family. I was sad this day because my bestfriend was leaving and I don’t know when we’ll be able to see each other again. We did have lots of fun this day but I think I also cried after a few days because I was going to be away with my friend. ugh. the emotions. 😥 We still do stay in contact. 🙂

1st photo: Taken at the entrance of Pizza Hut Eastwood. It was my friend’s birthday and she treated us. She’s actually not in the photo above… LOL. I’m such a bad friend. But I couldn’t find a better picture! She would understand. AHahaha 😛

2nd photo: We were having a photoshoot for our project in Photoshop class. We had to make a poster with a theme, and our theme was…. nothing really… just students wearing their uniforms. 😀 lol. we aren’t that creative. The posters were hung on the first floor of the school building. I don’t know if I should be happy about that or embarrassed.

These are my high school friends 🙂 I forgot where this was though… :/ I think we drove for 4 hours or more just to get here. We left at dawn and we still haven’t arrived at the location when the sun showed up.

It was still a fun day 🙂 This was a treat by my friend’s parents 🙂

My cousin’s debut! (18th birthday) First picture’s with friends from hs and the second one’s a family picture. 🙂 She doesn’t have a phone because she refused to have one but on this day, she wasn’t able to refuse because it was a gift for her. :)) Now, she never lets anyone use it. Haha.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

True Love Waits Ch. 12

Magsipila na kayo!” sigaw ni Rafael. Siya kasi ang class president so ‘yan talaga ang Gawain niya araw-araw, actually, araw-araw for the past 4 years na magkakaklase kami dahil laging siya ang nananalo na president sa room. At pumipila nga pala kami dahil may CFC kami or yung tinatawag na flag ceremony.

Hoy, Vince at Kurt, try niyo kaya lumabas na noh?” medyo naiinis na sabi ni Rafael. Well, ‘di ko naman siya masisisi dahil kanina pa naman siya nagsisisigaw eh.

Nung tumayo sina Vince at Kurt, syempre napatingin ako. Iniisip ko lang kung alam ba niya yung tungkol dun sa picture at sa mga comments. Kung may pakialam ba siya o wala. O kung tama si ate Claire na baka panakit butas lang ako.

Napansin yata niyang tinititigan ko siya kaya napatingin din siya sa akin. Hindi ko inalis ang titig ko. Pero…bakit ganon ang tingin niya? Parang may gusto siyang sabihin. Yung tingin na alam mong may gusto siyan iparating sa’yo pero syempre hindi ko naman alam. Tapos nag-grin siya. It was the slightest grin ever. And then, ayon, naglakad na siya para pumila.

Dumaan siya sa likod ko and then he said, “Let’s talk later. After school hours,” I just nodded in return. Sabi na nga ba eh. Bigla tuloy akong kinabahan. Hindi ko alam kung ano ba ang dapat kong maramdaman.

***

Nang naglalakad na kami sa may parking lot, I received a lot of ‘hellos’ and ‘his’ from students that I know by their faces. And as I expected, there were a lot of stares and glares from left to right. Halos yukong yuko na nga ang ulo dahil ayaw kong makita nila ang mukha. I don’t know why but a part of me is embarrassed. Is there a reason why I should feel like that? I know to myself that there is none but sometimes people make you feel things that you shouldn’t, make you believe things that you shouldn’t and make you do things that you shouldn’t. But that only happens if you let them….so why am I letting them?

Wow, bakit ngayon ko lang naisip ‘yon? Bakit ngayon ko lang naisip na hindi naman ako dapat na matakot at mahiya. Eh wala naman talaga akong ginawang kahiya-hiya. Kurt asked me to hang out and I think I accepted. At hindi naman nila ako pwedeng matawag na mangaagaw dahil wala na sila ni Agnes. Well, cool off daw. But that’s just the same thing, right?

And because of what I realized, I decided that I should just be me. Well, kung maiyak man ako sa mga sasabihin nila after, e’di umiyak.

oh Sheen, kaya pa?” tanong ni Anna Mae. Talaga namang magiging BFFs kami nito ngayong araw eh.

oo naman. Kayang-kaya!

Wow! San mo nakuha ang spirit na ‘yan?!” sabi ni Anna Mae na may kasabay pang palo sa balikat.

Aray! Masakit yun ah!” gumanti tuloy ako. Two times pa.

Makapalo! Dalawa yun ah! Wait lang, wala pa bang binibigay na project si Ms.G?” uhm, well, si Ms. G nap ala ang bago naming teacher sa culinary.

Wala pa. ngayon pa lang po sasabihin. Excited ka masyado.

’Di ah! Never.  Ako pa? ” tapos biglang sinabihan na kami lahat ni Rafael na umayos ng pila. Buti na lang at sa likod ako nakapwesto.

***

Sa totoo lang, marami-rami ang nagtanong sa aking ng tungkol dun sa facebook pero syempre, sa mga close friends lang ako nagkwento. Ayaw ko namang may iba pang makaalam ng totoong nararamdaman ko about it.

Tumunog na yung bell. Ibig sabihin, uwian na. ibig sabihin, HAPPY ME!

Yes! Sa wakas!” sabi ko ng medyo malakas.

Excited masyado?” tanong ni kate na nakatawa tapos nakangiti rin. Ito talagang si Kate parang walang kaproble-problema.

Syempre naman. Makakauwi na eh.” Sagot ko. ‘di naman yata halata na super excited ako eh.

Pero Monday ngayon so may pasok pa sa susunod na apat na araw,” nangaasar ata tong si Kate eh. Sasagot na sana ako kaya may tinuro siya sa likod ko. ‘Pag lingon ko, si Kurt pala.

Pwede ko bang mahiram ang kaibigan mo, Kate?” tanong ni Kurt kay Kate.

Ah sige. Mauna na ako sa’yo, Sheenna ah. Bye,” nag-bye na rin ako sa kanya. Hay, nakalimutan kong maguusap nga pala kami. Wala na, nawala na ang excitement ko.

Sheenna, pwede bang sa sky garden tayo mag-usap?

Sige.” So umakyat na kami.

True Love Waits Ch. 11

5:00 am, Monday. Oras na pala para gumising. Masakit pa rin ang ulo ko. Dahil lang naman ito sa kaguluhan na dulot ng mga comments sa facebook. Sa totoo lang mas maaga akong gumising ngayon para makapasok din ako ng mas maaga. Iniiwasan ko lang na dumaan sa hallway na alam kong maraming estudyante ‘pag pumasok ako ng 7:20 am ngayon. Alam ko namang makikita ko rin sila pag flg ceremony pero at least, kasama ko mga kaibigan ko don.

“Oy, Sheen, bakit ang aga mo naman ngayon?” tanong ni papa.

“Wala lang, papa. Gusto ko lang po pumaso ng maaga ngayon eh,” sagot ko na medyo inaantok pa. madaling araw na kaya ako nakatulog kagabi. Dahil din pala diyan kung bakit masakit ang ulo ko.

“Okay. Pero maligo ka na muna bago kumain at hindi pa ako nakakapagluto. ‘Di ka naman kasi nagsasabi,” tapos dumiretso na ako sa banyo. As usual, muni muni muna.

__________________

6:30 am na ako natapos. As in tapos na lahat at ready na akong pumasok. Hay buhay. Wala akong kagana-gana ngayong araw. Sana lang pumasok din ng maaga ang mga kaibigan ko. Para naman may kausap ako. Pakiramdam ko kasi may nakatago ditto sa dibdib ko na para bang gusto kong ilabas pero hindi ko alam kung paano. Hindi ko naman gusto pang sabihin ito kay papa dahil marami na siyang iniisip.

Mga 5 minutes lang nandito na ako  malapit sa high school building ng school. Buti na lang at wala pang mga estudyante.

“Good morning, Kuya Cris!” as usual, si kuya cris na naman ang una kong nakita.

“Oy, Sheenna! Aga mo ngayon ah. Bagong buhay ka na?”

“Grabe naman. Porket lagi akong late eh. Pero minsan lang to. Sinipag ako eh,” natawa naman ako, at least ‘di ba.

‘Pag dating ko sa 4th floor, walang katao-tao as in. Pero syempre, good news yon for me. Pagkabukas ko ng pinto, hay grabe! Bakit ba ganito ang amoy ng room na ito ‘pag umaga? Hmf. Well, no choice naman ako kaya naupo na lang ako sa proper seat ko. Dahil wala naman akong makausap, nilabas ko na lang ang Physics book ko para magbasa. Ganito ang napapala ng mga taong walang magawa eh, basa lang ng kahit ano tapos wala namang pumapasok sa utak.

Naka-fifteen pages na ata ako pero wala akong naiintindihan maliban na lang dun sa mga na-discuss ka ni sir. Actually, nakatitig lang ako ng matagal tas lipat na ng page. Galling ko no?

“Wow Sheenna, ang aga mo! Sipag ah, aral agad at PHYSICS PA!” hindi talaga magandang pakinggan ang boses nito ‘pag umaga. Nakakainis lang.

“Manahimik ka nga, Anna Mae! Ang sakit sa tenga ng boses! Alam mo yung taong may sipon tapos parang inipit pa yung boses tapos bulol, ganun ka!” nako nako nako.

“Weehh?! Taray mo!” pero umupo naman siya sa tabi ko. Nako, sana lang at hindi ito mangulit.

“Nakita ko pala yung picture niyo,” bigla na lang niyang sinabi. Napayuko tuloy ako. Parang bigla na lang akong nahiya. Hindi ko man lang alam ung bakit.

“oh bakit parang nalungkot ka? Sorry naman, ‘di ko alam eh,”

“Hindi naman ikaw eh. Naalala ko lang yung mga sinabi nung iba dun sa picture. Parang galit lahat ng tao sa akin tapos parang wala rin silang pakialam,” sabi ko sa kanya. Hindi ako naiiyak, talagang nakakalungkot lang.

“’Wag mo silang pansinin. Inggit lang yung mga yon. At tsaka mas bata rin sila.”

“Alam ko naman na mas bata sila. At ‘di naman nila kailangan na mainggit eh” …eh wala naman kasi talaga silang dapat na ikainggit dahil hindi naman ako girlfriend.

“Hay nako Sheenna, kahit na sabihin mo pang hindi ka niya girlfriend, maiinggit pa rin ‘yong mga ‘yon.” Eh bakit naman?? Tanong ko sa isip ko na parang nagets niya dahil binigyan ko siya ng isang questioning look.

“Kasi ganon ang tao. Walang may alam kung naging sila ni Agnes but everyone called you ‘mang-aagaw.’ They’re throwing insults at you because they don’t know you and also because that’s what they chose to see you as. Alam mo kasi, kung magrereact ka dahil galit ka rin sa kanila, pare-pareho kayong talo,” napabuntong-hininga na lang ako after sabihin ni Anna Mae ‘yon sa akin. Fair point. Actually, a good point.

“Natatakot pa rin ako eh”

“Bakit naman? Kasi baka laitin ka nila sa loob ng school?”

“oo naman.”

“Tumabi ka lang sa’kin. Ayaw naman siguro nila ng report sa principal ng bullying from the SSG President.” Sabay ngiti niya sa akin.

“Winner ka na talaga!” seryosong napagaan nun ang loob ko ah.

A Place In Time by Jessica Concha

Uhuh. the title tells everything. well, not all 😛

It has been a few months ago since I finished reading Jessica Concha’s A Place In Time. One thing I kind of regretted before reading it was asking my friend to tell me the story and who’s who. But yeah, that just made me want to read the story myself more.

I’m not planning on summarizing the story. Instead, I’ll just tell you its aftermaths. Yes, reading A Place In Time has its effects.

From the first 4 stories by Concha that I’ve read, APIT had the best Chapter 1…or whatever you call it. Hahaha. (I don’t know if it is an introduction or a prologue. Sarreeehh :P) ——> Back to what I was saying, yeah, Chapter 1 of APIT captivated me after its first 3 paragraphs. I don’t know why, it just sounded so interesting to me. It kept me reading.

It only took me 2-4 days reading the first 3 stories(I read the fourth one after APIT, that’s another story :P) but I read APIT for more than a week, that’s for sure! It was because I didn’t want it to end yet so I kept myself from finishing it. And also because I was so sure I’ll be crying (though I told my friends I’ll never cry over fictional stories).

______________________________

NOTE: this was last edited on April 3, 2012. i forgot to post it. and yeah, APIT is still the best. thumbs up to Ms. Jessica Concha. 🙂

i did cry though….

and i don’t know if the sequel ended already… the last chapter i read was 40-ishhh.

I Love you….Because you’re Pretty (an edited version of Love At First Sight)

Does love at first sight mean true love or just temporary love? Well, who knows?

According to a website I was reading, love at first sight is an emotional condition whereby a person feels romantic attraction for a stranger in the first encounter.

Since childhood up to my adolescent stage, I still hear the phrase “love at first sight” connected to sentences about this stranger they saw while they wandered around the streets. They usually said praises pertaining to the other’s physical traits. That’s why, as a kid, I always thought that beautification of the outside appearance is key to having a long lasting relationship.

I had also heard a real love story that started with just a simple look then they clicked to each other and, amazingly, they did get their happily ever after.

But growing up in a society like mine, I have learned to grow. To grow in mind and to live not according to what people tell me. And that’s when I realized that love is not measured on the attractiveness of the outside but the wonderful human inside.

I’ve watched movies that had let me see how a person can fall in love with another just by a glimpse. That’s a literal definition of love at first sight to me. I don’t remember the titles of those movies but I still remember those moments. And like any other fictional love stories, the person who fell at first sight lived happily ever after with his love.

But when I see those moments on television, I still have this question in mind: How do they know if it’s love?

How can they determine that that person will be the love of their life? How can they be so sure of such feeling? And can it be that it’s only because of their hormones? Yes, all these questions pop into my mind when talking about love at first sight.

As to how I see it, love at first sight is possible but it’s always a good idea to take a second look because I know for sure that it is not love yet but just an attraction or rather, a crush. I think no one will question me about that for everyone is at fault. Of course, there those who really look at someone’s attitude and character but we cannot deny the fact that most people judge by how we look physically. That’s something I’m certain because I’m also human and I have done it too.

Boys rate girls and girls rate boys. Others say it’s normal and others say it’s rude. For a lot of people, height, weight, color, race and social status matter. And within different cultures, there are different standards. Yes, culture is a big consideration when it comes to love.

In movies, love at first sight ends in happy endings but in reality, not so much. It isn’t safe to say that you can beat all the odds with just one glance because maybe, you don’t know, you’re the only one fighting. 

It is fine to have a ‘type’, it is fine if your standards are mostly based on the outward appearance because no one must dictate you on whom you should like. But make sure that that someone is willing to build a team with you in your relationship. 

Love at first sight is a mere attraction of the physical but if built with a foundation of strong emotional connection, two people might experience true love. 

Grow old with……..myself.

at 2:00 am today, October 31,2012, i had the courage to listen to Little Things by One Direction written by Ed Sheeran. The result of my bravery was awfully brilliant.

The first time i heard it, i cried because of Niall’s solo. He sang it like he meant every single word in it. The second time i listened to it, i cried once again for the song itself. The third time listening to it, i cried for the last time because i it made me realize that no guy would love me like that. Painful but true.

So yeah, i rejoice for the master piece that is Ed Sheeran. And the boys sang it beautifully.

Maybe I should stop fangirling to any band. It just takes away my social skills. I have no RL friends that also fangirls over the boys. Maybe I should start having a life. Maybe then, I’ll meet someone who’ll love my little things.

Little Things is an awfully brilliant song that makes every girl feel loved but also makes girls, like me, feel bad about themselves.  I love the song, don’t get me wrong, it’s just…..i’m not something special.

SOOOOO, i recommend everyone to listen to Little Things. 🙂 It is a great song.

“But I’ll love them endlessly…..

But you’re perfect to me…..

Coz it’s you…..they add up to….”

istoker.

someone found my blog through facebook. i think i should remove that link from my about me so people won’t see my blog. lol. haha 😛

that’s only because i accept anyone. as in anyone i don’t know. so yeahhh….

WHO’S STALKING???

and i just want to say thank you to the people who are still reading that short story and the unfinished love story. i think i won’t ever be able to continue that one because i lost interest. the people who inspired me to write that aren’t my classmates anymore.

yeah, it was supposed to be my birthday gift to my bestfriend. (it was all just for fun) but then i wasn’t able to finish it on time. 😦 good thing she didn’t get disappointed. (well, of course, it was all for laughs)

i still have school tomorrow. so i have to sleep now. 🙂

night night 🙂
