Merry Christmas cuties!

isabellamari blog season's greetings 2016

G U Y S !!!!!!!!

Party hat’s on cos I don’t have Santa hat but it’s not Santa we’re celebrating anyway nor is it Jollibee (pero let’s say that I do haha luv u bb) but you know we gots a birthday to celebrate! Let’s not forget that today, and also the days that will follow, is about love and kindness and generosity and peace. Terrible things has happened this year so now more than ever we need to practice being kind. It’s hard but I believe in ripple effects so…

I am not the most religious person but last night’s sermon got to me. The priest said that maybe we celebrate Christmas because we need to be reminded to have faith and to not be afraid.

Be brave, hope, and have faith! (Teka nga ime-message ko na ‘yung crush ko….. CHAR BUT U GET WHAT I MEAN RIGHT.)

LUV U GUYS LYK A LUV SONG AND MAY THE FORCE BE WITH ALL OF US!

MERRY CHRISTMAS CUTIES!!!!!

P.S. Hi, crush. In case you’re reading this, next year mas magiging merry ang Christmas mo kapag tayo na. Hahahahehehehe

 

It’s just a little crush promise!

Hi guys!!!

Kumusta? Wow tatlong buwan pala akong walang paramdam. Sabi nga ni Jessy Mendiola: WHAT AM I TO SAY TO THAT? Sorry daming ganap! Bukod sa maraming trabaho, an already finished semester (YAAAASSSSS), a thesis and comprehensive exams on the way (next sem!!), and itong mga kadiring nangyayari sa Pilipinas, wala namang bago other than…

I bought office plants.

and…

I have a crush.

#WOW #SHOOKT

Omg. Yuck wow high school??? Teenager???

Guys wala palang pinipiling edad o sitwasyon ‘yung crush phase. Akala ko tapos na ako don. May iba naman along the way na “uy cutieeee” or “uy bet!!!” or “uy sana single” pero ito wala lang crush ko lang talaga siya.

Medyo kadiri na nga eh. Banggitin mo lang pangalan nung mokong (yesss uyyy playing it cool kunyari wala lang) na yun, mapapangiti na si gaga (me). I try to play it cool pero alam mo yung whenever I feel his presence (WOW) nagfi-freak out ako inside. One time sabi ko sa mga kaibigan ko:

OMG ANDYAN NA SIYA MAG-USAP LANG TAYO SHET HAY ANG CUTE NIYA TALAGA HUHU OK WAG KAYONG TITINGIN BAKA MAHALATA WAAAAAA!

Diyos ko lord parang akong tinurukan. Binulong ko lahat yan whilst maintaining a normal, happy-looking smile pero dilat ang mata.

To answer your question: Single naman yata.

To answer your other question: HINDI SIYA MARCOS APOLOGIST. Hehe.

To answer your other other question: Siyempre hindi ko sasabihin kung sino.

Disappointed na nga mga kaibigan ko cos I’m really off my game. Or talagang willing lang akong tumingin from afar… CHAR ARTE KO.

Dahil holiday today, napag-tripan kong mag-google about crushes. Kasi na-pressure na akong magsulat ulit dito so parang pinilit ko nalang din sarili kong mag-isip ng topic kaso wala eh nanaig ang feelings~

In fairness sa unang-una sa FAQs ha. People ask:

Gaano po ito katotoo mga ka-DDS?

Mag-apat na buwan ko na siyang crush pero parang di pa ‘to applicable sa akin. Bilis naman bezzy. Sabi nga ni madam Carly, it’s way too soon I know this isn’t love. OA????

ANYWAY, diba sabi ko rin I bought new plants?

Cuties

I first bought the right one that I named after my crush. Namatayan na kasi ako ng ganyan dati as in napabayaan ko tapos naging lupa siya 😦 Naging pampataba literally. So, pinangalanan ko after kay ano para maalagaan ko wow. Tapos, parang ay wow ang lungkot niya so I bought the left one para sumaya siya.

And that other plant represents me. Hahahahaha baliw. #halamankanalangbaomagigingkatotohananpa

Anyway yun lang nagkwento lang ako!!! Sorry wala akong tips kasi ako mismo litong-lito na sa mga paandar ko sa lyf. I’m really off my game and I think my n years of being single threw me off hahaha. As in no joke naging shy ako. Baka kayo ang may payo sa akin? Baka lang! Feel free to share!

Bye! Sa mga magjo-join sa rally today please stay safe and let your voices be heard!!! I’ll be here in the probinsya sorry guys I need to recuperate muna wow recuperate.

To my crush, if ever mapadpad ka dito at maramdaman mong ikaw ‘to, try mo kayang mag-message naman.

Mwahugggzzz! Luv u guys like a love song!

Is this love, momshie?

Dahil #ChangeHasCome try ko naman magsulat ng mga positive kemerut tungkol sa love.

Guys unang sentence palang ako feeling ko naduduwal na ako (WOW) (HINDI HO AKO BUNTIS) (WALA HONG BUBUNTIS). Joke lang. Last week, may nakausap akong friend na sobrang positibo ang pananaw tungkol sa pag-ibig. Siguro lahat ng sinabi naming masarap (mapa-pagkain o kung ano hehe) ang consistent niyang sagot ay:

Mas masarap pa ring magmahal.

And I was like: GET OUTTA HERE.

Syempre joke lang, english ‘yan eh! ‘Yung totoo kong sagot ay “HEH TIGILAN MO AKO.” Sobrang cynical ko na sa love so how do I give justice to this supposedly happy post?

As a JaDine fan, inabangan ko kagabi ang premiere ng ‘Til I Met You. Minsan talaga feeling ko sinasabi sakin ni Lord, ok lang na olats ako sa buhay pag-ibig binalik naman nya si James Reid sa Primetime. Haha. But James can only do so much 😦 CHARARAT. Anyway, ang unang mga linya sa pilot episode ay mga sagot sa katanungang “Paano mo nga ba malalaman kung in love ka na?” O kung siya na ba ang taong para sa’yo?

Cheesy pero wala kayong pake. I live for this hanash.

Wala akong tips dito o kung ano. Hindi rin ako nakapagsurvey sa isang daang tao para masagot ang katanungang ito kaya wala akong empirical evidence to back up my claims (WOW). Actually, sa tagal ko nang hindi na-in love hindi ko alam kung applicable pa rin ‘to HAHA SO ANO PA NGA BANG PINAGSASABI KO SINASAYANG KO LANG BA ORAS MO??

Nakaabot ka na dito so papanindigan ko na.

Here are some telltale signs na sure, plangak, truly lee – in love ka na momshie.

ANOBAYAN: “Okay ka naman ah. So bakit single ka pa rin?”

Hi. I’m back.

It’s been three months my dear beshies! Kumusta na kayo dyan? Ako, I’m okay. Semi-enjoying the final days of bakasyon. I realized I’ve been studying / working non-stop for 5 months (ito na ‘yung cue nyo para isiping ang sipag ko… pero sa totoo lang wala akong life) kaya nung pumatak ang buwan ng Hunyo goodbye utak muna.

Ang mahalaga naman ay umabot ako sa #JulyNaMagdangal. To commemorate this awesome month, here’s my favorite Jolina Magdangal song uploaded on Youtube. May libre kasing videoke:

Aside from my goodbye utak phase, I’m just running out of funny stories and anecdotes (ANEK???dotes) kaya wala akong masyadong emote.

That was until this afternoon.

My colleagues and I were at the coffee shop when suddenly (SUDDENLY???) napunta ang usapan sa abilidad kong magmahal. (Kung bakit ba kami napadpad sa topic na yon at 3 freaking PM na parang inakyat sa lupa ang impyerno sa init, hindi ko rin alam.) Sabi ko, magaling naman akong magmahal (I don’t feel any pressure right now…). To which my office mate replied:

“E kung ganon, bakit bakante ka pa rin hanggang ngayon?”

Muntik nang masalaksak ‘yung ngala-ngala ko ng straw. Masaquette. Sinundan niya pa ng:

“Okay ka naman ah. Maganda ka naman. Bakit single ka pa rin?”

THAT DID IT. NAPABILI AKO NG CLOVER CHIPS BARBECUE FLAVOR WITH VITAMINS.

Ebidensya. Post-processed using VSCO para ~art~

The only question harder than “Bakit wala ka PANG boyfriend?” ay “Okay ka naman ah. Bakit kaya single ka pa rin?” Tapos may follow up pa yan after a *long silence* ng “Bakit kaya?”

As if hindi mo siya narinig the first time.

As if pagkatapos nung katahimikan, may sagot ka na.

No crisis, just quarter-life

Hello, 25. It me.

Akala ko magkakaroon ng parang cosmic transformation when someone turns 25. Wala lang. It feels like a ~big thing~. Mga kasal nga nagse-celebrate ng silver anniversary e, so parang hey! I’m still here! I’m a functioning, most-of-the-time decent human being! Yey me! Yey parents!

Wala naman masyadong ganap. Like internally (YES kayanin mo ‘yan, muntik ko na i-type from within).

Sa totoo lang, guys, wala naman na akong time mag-reflect. Between work and school, sobrang hectic grabe ‘ni hindi na ako makapag-emote sa bus! Natutulog na lang ako! Like last week, buti ginising ako nung kundoktor kung hindi Cubao ang bagsak ko. If you expect me to go back to LB that day and go to work, nagkakamali ka. Magmo-mall na lang ako.

BUT I still do have time for dramarama sa madaling araw. Kadiri yung feelings ko minsan. At least alam nating lahat na hindi pa naman ako nagiging full-blown halaman.

ANYWAY, it’s been a week since my 25th birthday hanash! I spent it at Jollibee with closest friends and family. The party is secretly called MAHAL NIYO NAMAN AKO DIBA: A TEST OF FRIENDSHIP.
