Grabe, 26!

I was chatting with my best friend last night when we realized that 1. We became friends when Meteor Garden came out in 2003 in the Philippines and now it’s being remade in a very bongga way (ayon sa chismis), which was what 14 freaking years ago 2. We were 12 at the time and 3) Wow mehn 26 na kami wait lang paano nangyari yun???

Kids, ito ‘yung F4 featuring a kalapati. I don’t like birds pero ang swerte nung kalapati.

Ang purpose nung unang paragraph ay mapagcompute ka at mapatunayan kong may angking talento din naman ako sa Math. Charot.

Last year when I turned 25, I said that I thought there will be some sort of hanash within me. Something na kakatok sa ulo ko at sasabihing “Huy, 25 ka na. So anong plano?” I didn’t panic. I was okay. But, last night, hahaha nakakatawa kasi pareho kaming:

Omg. 26 na tayo.

Ngayon kumatok yung kakatok sabi niya “Hello, ANUNEY???” Mas demanding si bes.

‘Yung totoo wala akong resolution sa mga hanash ko in life and I’ll navigate my way through ‘adulthood’ in the days/weeks/months/years to come but I do know that I am grateful for another +1 in my buhay. Work’s great (walang halong charot). School’s almost done (sana sipagin ako) (please) (please pray for my kasipagan it’s dying). Family’s still funny (yung nanay ko nagbubukas pa rin ng cabinet ko tapos tulog ako tapos gigisingin ako kung bagay ba sa kanya yung damit pag sinabi kong oo half asleep sasabihin nya Bakit?? I can’t haha). My friends are perfect and yung puso ko ayun ok naman hehe.

Madaming hanash lang minsan but there is nothing that a bucket of chickenjoy shared with loved ones can’t fix. Lalo na kapag puro thigh part. ❤

Salamat nga pala sa mga bumati. Wala nang nagwish ng jowa. Nakaramdam ba kayo? Charot.

P.S. My best friend and I became friends because of Meteor Garden. Sabi ko sa kanya one day, “Nanonood ka ng Meteor Garden? Sinong favorite mo?” Sabi niya, “Si Lei.” And I was like, “Me too!!!” At some point yung nickname niya also transformed to Lei. Wala lang kwento lang.

P.P.S. Diyos ko nasa PS na ako ang dami ko pa ring nasabi.

P.P.P.S. Okay bye.

ANOBAYAN: “Bakit wala ka pang boyfriend?”

HEYYYYYY U.

I know right? It’s been a while! And by a while, I mean two months. So sorry for not updating (yuck may following?!) guys kasi busy ako and, therefore, wala ako masyadong time mag-isip. Syempre chararat lang yan! Hashtag excuses. The important thing is, I’m back and abot pa ako sa #JulyNaMagdangal! To commemorate this joyous month, allow me to share my fave Jolina Magdangal song:

The past few months, weeks, days have been anything but ordinary. There were changes pero ang di nagbago ay ang dami ng taong nagtatanong sakin kung bakit wala akong boyfriend.

The only question harder than “Bakit wala kang boyfriend?” is “Bakit wala ka PANG boyfriend?” Bukod sa binigyan mo na nga ng emphasis na nag-iisa ako e talagang napagtuunan pa ng pansin kung gaano katagal na akong mag-isa. #BAKITMOKOPRINEPRESSURE

Guys may nagtanong sakin once ng “Bakit di ka pa nagpapakasal?” E BIGYAN MO KAYA MUNA AKO NG PAPAKASALAN GAGO KA BA. Haha major #outburst. Sa office naman, since mga mommies and daddies mostly ang kasama ko ang tanong naman sakin ay “Ikaw, kailan ka magkaka-baby?” E penge muna ng kasamang gagawa guys! Ang lagay eh #foreveralone?! No way.

Over the years, I still haven’t perfected this. It’s not that I don’t want to give an answer, it’s just that 1. I don’t know how to respond because I don’t know and 2. I want people to STOP asking. Hehehe. Nood na lang tayo ng O! Shopping. Kung bakit, hindi ko alam. Gusto ko lang ipromote yung Oh oh oh shoppenngggg!

ANYWAY, here are some recommended responses to “Bakit wala ka pang boyfriend/girlfriend?”

Pick-Me-Upper of the Week: The Holstee Manifesto Lifecycle Video

Sosep and I were talking about mantras and my sad realization for the day (yuck I know very sentisabado ang peg) when he shared me this video. If you’re feeling down, discouraged, and confused, I suggest you watch this and realize that life ain’t that bad. PROMISE!

Some of my faves are the following:

  • If you are looking for the love of your life, stop. They will be waiting for you when you start doing things you love.
  • Stop over analyzing.
  • Getting lost will help you find yourself.
  • All emotions are beautiful.
  • Life is short. Live your dream.

Be inspired and have a great week ahead! 🙂

I can’t sleep, okay?

I blame it on my short nap. I don’t know why I fell asleep at 5pm. I was reading Requiem and the next thing I knew, I was already in deep slumber. I dreamed about something I couldn’t remember then I woke up and thought it was already 10pm. Only to find out that I slept for only an hour. That short afternoon nap was stupid cos it messed up my sleeping pattern now I can’t sleep. Dammit.

Don’t get me wrong. I am not complaining that I had the luxury to sleep (although sometimes I do cos it only means one thing and that one thing is that I am still unemployed which sucks but it’s not like I’m not doing anything about it it’s just that I am actively waiting and I’m being really patient and  I have to stop cos I’m being defensive right? I’m totally rambling). What I hate is that I’m lying on my bed, staring at my ceiling, thinking these things that I would really like to share with someone.

In short, I need someone to talk to at this ungodly hour and I have no one. And I’m not talking about any friends here cos I have a lot of friends. I have a few friends who I know are online cos they are still tweeting and posting some stuff on Facebook. I just need that constant someone, you know? Am I making any sense?

And no, I don’t JUST need someone to talk to. I’m quoting my favorite song from The Corrs here, “I’ve got my friends, I’m more than okay.”

Sunday Reflections: Possessed

I was praying for a sign. All these weeks, I’ve been praying for it. I’m glad I heard it today.

I went to mass this morning and the sermon was so beautiful. The priest talked about how we get so attached to our possessions that they end up possessing us. This so-called attachment only leads to unhappiness. Makes sense, huh? He told us that people kept holding on to the things they think that matter like money, power, and success for the approval of their family and peers. Dependence on these things that are not even permanent results to enslavement of one’s happiness.

The priest said that we have to distinguish these false wants and needs, these possessions that make us  feel trapped.

I’m tired of this whole approval-seeking thing. I want happiness. Don’t we all? As for me money, power, and success can’t give me that. I know it.
