Last Tuesday, I was very surprised when I got inside my service because V was already right there sitting. I even laughed at myself because I can’t even imagine what I looked like at that time. I was pretty shock that he really woke up early just to surprise me. And now, I’m smiling here while making this post because remembering what happened last Tuesday really surprised me and I still can’t get over with it. Argh!

Good thing, I also had a surprise for him. I surprised him with two mentos. Strawberry and mint. Yay! Strawberry, our favorite. And along with those two mentos was a poem made by me. I sent him a lot of messages that I was busy because of school stuff and I was writing which was pretty long. He didn’t know that I was already making a poem for him.

So here it goes:

Your twinkling eyes
That I adore
That melts me inside
Every time you stare

Your small nose
That I wanna pinch
My nose to your nose
The cutest thing I’ve ever did

Your voice
That gives me weak knees
To hear your voice on repeat
Is all I ever want

Your touch
That gives me warmth
On my icy palms
That makes me warm inside

Your hand fits in mine
Like it’s made just for me
Please bear this in mind
It was meant to be

Your smile
The sexiest curve you ever had
The first thing I want to see
When I wake up

Your face
The most adorable creation that captured my eyes
The last thing I want to see
When I go to sleep

Your lips
I want to kiss it passionately
All day and all night long
Until our lips burn

You, only you
You’re worth the love
You’re worth holding onto
You, whom I love so much

He read it many times inside the car and I saw his genuine smile while reading the poem I made for him. Moments like this is so precious and sometimes, I just wish that I have a camera in my hand to capture the expression on his face. And see it for a million times how blessed I am that I made him smile. His smile that can make me survive throughout the day. Too cliche, I know, right? *laughs*

Last week, Bae took two photos of us in the library of V and I busy making my assignment in English. Well, not literally my assignment. It was a group assignment. He helped me on answering it. Thanks boyfii!

And last Wednesday, V and I went to the swing to swing, of course. It was in our bucket list that we will ride on the swing and yay, we indeed did it. Well, the funny part is that I was the bubbly and the hyper person while he was the lousy person because migraine alert. Nevertheless, it made me happy that even though he dislikes the thought of playing the swing. He did it. Yay! So yeah, I took a picture of him. Isn’t he the cutest? *laughs*

I also remembered that there was a day that we really had fun. I kept on telling him, “One meter apart” while laughing because he kept on chasing me and tickling my tummy at school. I even told him to behave and one meter apart and just looking at him and having eye contact with him and there’s no words to say but both of us are just laughing like there’s really a strong connection between the two of us.

And yesterday while going home, we sat at the back because it’s the only available seats in the service and while going home, every time we look at each other. We would just laugh silently. It would be so embarrassing if we would just laugh out loud and wreck the silence inside the car. He kept on making funny faces and I told him to behave but he kept on doing it and until we came at his house, we still kept on laughing which was really goddamn crazy. From school to his house, we kept on laughing silently. We even exchanged a lot of jokes which is always be one of the best moments we will have. Looking at him and listening to his laughter while I was there to crack the corniest jokes ever to him was hell of a fun. Last Wednesday, he cracked a joke to me. We were far from each other because we were at gymbahan

V: Anong mouse ang nagsasalita?
Me: Mickey Mouse.
V: Anong duck ang naglalakad?
Me: Lahat ng ducks naglalakad.

I already knew this joke and he just ran towards me and squished my face while saying, “Argh!!” *laughs*

And last Wednesday, we exchanged bags. So throughout the whole class, I was using V’s bag and he was using my bag. It’s kinda funny that even though how girly my bag was, he used it.

Yesterday, the only thing inside my bag were two sachets of cappuccino and we had coffee at school. My coffee buddy! ❤

They say, “Be with someone who gives you the same feeling of when you see your food coming at a restaurant” and maybe, I’m already with this ‘someone’.


I’ve already mentioned this a lot of times that my friend, Gian was planning to surprise me this book. I really don’t know if he was really planning to surprise me but the thing that he was looking for me because he wanted me to read the book since he knew that I really wanted to read the book and not informing me that it was his plan to let me borrow the book surprised me. Uh, my sentence was kinda confusing, right? Or nah?

So okay, you don’t know guys how happy I am every time a book is now in my hands. Like I really want to read it right away and just spend the whole day reading it until I finish a book. Unfortunately, reading this book didn’t turn out to be good because of Midterm examination killed my booknerd life and my schedule was pretty hectic that I didn’t have the time to read the book. It was really kinda embarrassing too for Gian that it took me a long time to finish the book.

Synopsis

"Quentin Jacobsen has spent a lifetime loving the magnificently adventurous Margo Roth Spiegelman from afar. So when she cracks open a window and climbs back into his life–dressed like a ninja and summoning him for an ingenious campaign of revenge–he follows.

After their all-nighter ends and a new day breaks, Q arrives at school to discover that Margo, always an enigma, has now become a mystery. But Q soon learns that there are clues–and they’re for him. Urged down a disconnected path, the closer he gets, the less Q sees of the girl he thought he knew.” - Source

Okay so my book review would be like this: I can say that thanks to Paper Towns my love for poetry grew fonder because thinking critically and being on Q’s shoes was pretty challenging since he was so busy solving the clues that Margo left. In fact, I was even amazed if I can be like Margo with all the adventures and running away and just being yourself like valuing solitude and just doing the things you love but in reality, it’s a big NO! My mom would be so mad at me if I’ll do all the Margo stuff. But imagining myself if I was really the real Margo, I would realize that my life is pretty amazing despite being a bad ass kid. Because she was right, our lives is like a cycle. We will study hard, finish our studies, get a job, marry someone and have a family. It’s a never ending cycle and sometimes, I don’t want my life to be like this. It’s like I want to grab this year, my year, to go on adventures. Because being 17 or whatever age you are will only come once in your life and sometimes, I kinda regret of being a good girl because I’ve missed a lot of adventures in life. So yeah, I really can’t make a good book review about this because I’ve already read the book a long time ago. Nevertheless, it’s a book which is worth the time to read on.

Hey guys, follow me on Twitter and Instagram. Thanks!

I’ve already planned this if I’ll be posting a post about my college life, uh well, I would also post of a picture of my college life, may it be with my friends or whatever it may be because I really just wanna cherish my four years of stay in college. *gulps* I hope it’s four years, who knows? Like “Hello guys! College life is pretty hard and I don’t even know if I can survive this. Can I just go back to high school and be living young, wild and free?” Yeah, “living young, wild and free” is kinda cliche. 

And I’ve also planned that I’ll be blogging like every Friday or every weekend to update this blog despite how busy bee I am but it turns out to be a fail but no worries, I’m already here typing this post. Yay! 

I’ve been into ups and downs right now but I’m super kaduper happy that I’m so good in accounting now. *gulps* Not really that good but last week surprised me because I was the only one who was actively participating and writing on the whiteboard to analyze the transactions given. I felt that maybe accountancy is really for me and I just hope that this will last forever because I don’t want to shift to any course because being an irregular student sucks big time. Right? 

And hoooray, even though how busy bees we are, we can still find time to read novels. So last week, I’ve finished “The Betrayal of Natalie Hargrove” by Lauren Kate. The ugly part of reading it is that I just really hate how my schedule and classes will disturb my booknerd life. I just want to finish a book for a day so that I can get the book hangover and not lose interest on it. Do you feel me or am I the only one in the world who feels this kind of sadness? Oh yeah, also last week, I’ve finished reading “Paper Towns” by John Green. Thanks to Gian for surprising me and letting me borrow this book. Why surprise? Because literally, it surprised me knowing that Gian was looking for me because he knew that I want to read Paper Towns. Yay! 

I’m blessed enough knowing that I have three girlfriends with me to support me and love me no matter how shitty life is. Thank you bae for trusting me all your deepest secrets and simply being my bae. Even though a lot of people thought that we are bisexual and we don’t care because loving you is simply enough. Thanks Gela for being my lunch buddy, team mate *laughs*, my partner in crime and being simply the Gela I’ve known even though how I hate you for always blabbering that you’re going to shift and transfer to another school because of how hard our course is. And thanks to the most quiet bae I have, Maye, thanks for being my buddy every time I wait for my service, my CR buddy even though we hate how lakwatsera you are. *laughs* I love you all to bits guys!

Last Saturday, my mom told me that V can visit here at home every Saturday. You don’t know how excited V was when this very day is fast approaching. Even though how hectic and tedious our schedules are specially that we have our different chosen fields of courses, we can still find time to talk and hang out at school for a short period of time. Sometimes, we even use our time studying together and no wonder, that I’m already good in our accounting class and V is already good in Math. In fact, his score yesterday was higher than mine. I was like, “Wow. Good job. You’re better than me in Math if you weren’t just a lazy ass.” *laughs*

I downloaded a lot of movies last night so that we can watch it today and yeah, we’ve watched some of them like “God’s Not Dead”, some parts of “Despicable Me”, “Despicable Me 2” and “The Fault In Our Stars”. We just watched some of the parts of the three movies I’ve mentioned specially TFIOS because I want him to read the book first. It’s better to read the book first than watching the movie, right?

We finished watching “God’s Not Dead” since it’s a movie that talks about the existence of our awesome God, it’s worth the first watch and I know that his professor in Theology would let the whole class watch the movie. The same way my professor let us watched the movie though we weren’t finish watching the movie yet. Maybe in Monday, we can already finish it. So there was a part of the movie that you’re going to text all your contacts “God’s Not Dead”. So V did it this evening and I did it last night, it’s kinda saddening and maddening at the same time how our contacts would react that we’re madly crazy for sending that three-word message. What’s wrong with you people? Are you anti-God people? They thought that the message we’ve sent was sort of a joke when in fact, it’s not. We just want to simply share that God’s really not dead. If you haven’t watch the movie, well, I recommend you to download it or ask a copy of a movie from a friend because if you won’t do it, it’s like you’re missing a good part of your life. Cross the word “good” because I prefer the most amazing part of your life. It’s just that every line in the movie moves you and strengthens your faith in God.

Mom cooked dinner and obviously, V ate with us. This is the first time that he ate dinner with me and my mom. It’s kinda nervous and happy at the same time since my favorite guy whom I love is eating with me and my mom whom I love too. Mom talked to V and give us pieces of advice and mom even asked V how long our relationship already is and V answered that we weren’t a month old yet which surprised mom. I wanna laugh out loud to show mom that I’m not lying to her when I told her that V courted me since day one and we were just in a relationship on this month, this month. Ha!

I also downloaded four e-books on his phone because he also wants to read the books I’m into. I downloaded “Anna And The French Kiss”, “Lola And The Boy Next Door”, “Isla And The Happily Ever After” by Stephanie Perkins and “Attachments” by Rainbow Rowell. He really wants to read Rainbow’s book from the very start he saw my library here in my phone since here at home, I have a good internet connection, I downloaded the book for him. Yay!

Every day with V is my favorite day so today is another favorite day!


Your smile
Widely in perfection
Seen for a while
Beauty in appreciation

Angel, you are
A disguise?
Wounded, yet why shine?
Like a nigh sunrise

I heard, quite deaf
Loud, never let go
Over and over
Vague feelings of I, you saw

Enchanted aura
You guided way
On wonderful days
United as we are!

- V

Last night, I got upset when V didn’t reply any of my messages through text and Viber. I thought he fell asleep but he was too busy studying on his subjects. So I just slept last night right away and this morning, I received 22 messages from him. The last message I received from him was 2:09 in the morning and I assume that he really waited for me to reply on his texts since he told me that he’ll be waiting for my reply. It’s kinda funny that he already knew that I was asleep and he still expected that I’ll reply on his messages. Since he thought I was so mad at him for not replying on my messages on text and Viber, he used his time in making a poem for me instead of using it for sleeping. So this morning, we had our lunch together for the first time and he surprised me with the poem above. And as you can notice, he also thought of a way to say ‘I love you’ through the poem. Did you notice the initials? And now, I let him sleep early because I’m already sick worried of him for not getting any sleep.

I’m so blessed today for receiving good comments on my Instagram posts, V surprised me with a poem, mom surprised me with this month’s Reader’s Digest and watched God’s Not Dead. By the way, I’ve also downloaded “The Fault In Our Stars” today and I’ll watch it tomorrow with V since he’ll be here tomorrow.

Oh, before I forgot, I wanna thank V. Without his phone, maybe I wouldn’t have these photos above. *smiles*


Yay for today! *throws confetti*

You don’t know guys how nervous I was when Saturday, this day, was already fast approaching these past few days because today marked the day when V will visit here at home and the day that my family will know about him. Officially know about him and see him in person since I was only into stories about him to them.

He doesn’t know about this place that’s why he got lost and it’s kinda funny how I waited for him outside and my armpits were already crying because of sweat! *laughs* And when we arrived at home, mom wasn’t feeling well so we just sat, surf the internet, talked a lot of stuff and listened to random artists. My mom got out of the room and it was pretty obvious that she wasn’t really feeling well. Though she still smiled to V and she went back to the room again.

V bought ensaymada for me and it was obviously our snack and don’t forget coke which was really not good for us. We’re both acidic and we’re trying to avoid those things but my mom told Ate to serve coke for us. My mom called me just to tell me that I should cook for V. Like seriously? This is my first time to cook for a guy here at home. And the fact, my mom told me so which is really surprising. From out of 10, V gave me 9.5 for making those hotdog sandwiches and if we round off 9.5, it’s already 10. So yay!!!

We took a lot of webcam photos and we’re laughing so hard until our stomachs hurt because of how hella funny our webcam photos are and the funny part is that I kept on pressing the arrow keys. It’s like a GIF though I was just using the arrow keys. But now, look above, they’re already edited by yours truly. I didn’t include the ugly ones that really made our stomachs hurt but the photos above are still cute, right?

My mom and grandma talked to V like for hours and it’s really quite a shocker that it seems like they’re already close with each other and I was just here so quite while holding his hand and listening to them talking about us, my family and my hometown.

Nanay told us, "Kung tapos na kayo mag-aral, ako sasagot sa gasto sa bakasyon niyo sa Borongan." We all laughed of course because we’re expecting that V and I would be travelling in another country but it was just in my hometown. *laughs*

You don’t know guys how extremely happy I am today that we’re officially legal. Yey!

And for the record, V isn’t a codename or a Tumblr name in order to hide his real name or whatever you may think about it, I really call him V because it’s his nickname which was created by me. Hihi

If you ask me to talk about myself, one of the first things I’ll say is that I’m a writer. Once they know that, then they start asking the usual questions: What do you write about? Short stories or novels? Etc. The one question that they always neglect to ask is why?

The first time I saw you when my mom and I were inside the jeep and I said, “Hey mom. Look! A Letranite!” You were planning to get inside the jeep but it was already full. I expected that you were older than me because you really look older than me. When I saw you, I already had a crush on you because of your looks and I just like how your body does every single move of yours that captures my eyes. When we arrived at school, I was shocked that you’re a freshman student but I wondered why that I didn’t even see you on day one. I really wanted to know your name but I can’t since I’m not good in making friends because I’m an introvert. I discovered that you’re an I.T. student. You don’t know even though how crowded a place is, my eyes would look for you.

And when school starts, I was surprised that we’re on the same service and I was kinda shy that maybe you would find me funny or awkward specially that I always sleep inside the van. You don’t know how eager I was to see your face, your smiling face but I’ve never seen you smile and it made me wonder why.

I asked one of your classmates what’s your name and what kind of personality you have. And then one day, I was in my accounting class, I received a message, “Pink cherry nalang pre?” and I replied, “Osige, pink cherry nalang pre. Sino ‘to?” and I was very shocked to know that it was you. It was you all along. You thought that it was Jaz, when in fact, it was me.

From that day on, we started to exchange messages and you don’t know how happy I am every time you talk to me. But knowing that you already have a girlfriend (who wasn’t even a girlfriend) broke my heart, I don’t know why, I didn’t even expect that you would fall in love with me. I don’t know why when in fact the only thing I want was to be a friend to you.

As months passed by, I became your best friend. You always tell me how sad, mad, pissed, and happy you are. Every rant of yours were entertained by me. And you do the same way to me, too. You don’t know how blessed I am, how I thanked God so much for having you as my best friend. For having a true friend like you that will comfort me, be there for me no matter what. You’re a friend who accepted me for who and what I am. You didn’t change me and I liked it.

August 13, we sat beside each other inside the van. And I didn’t notice that I fell asleep on your shoulder and knowing it from you, it gave me butterflies inside my stomach. You told me that it was your first time that someone slept on your shoulder.

And then one night, even though how broken I was knowing how you’re so into this girl that it made jealous, I was still and will always be a friend to you even though how shitty it would be knowing that I’m here to save you from your demons while I’m here, no one saving me from my own demons. I tried, I really tried to ignore you, to distance myself from you but I don’t know what kind of spell you’ve put into me that made me like you this much. Well, I didn’t like you that much since I had a crush with a guy and you had a crush on a girl.

August 25, you sent a lot of messages telling me all your problems, those morbid thoughts which creep the hell out of me. And I was there to save you, I made poems and sent you those poems for you to know that there’s indeed true love, that love ain’t stupid, that there’s hope, sunshine and there’s more to life. I cared and will always care for you. Why did I even care about you when in fact, I can just ignore you? Well, I was in your situation before and knowing that no one’s there to even care or save you sucks big time and it’s really depressing. That’s why I was there for you. As a friend. As your angel to fight your demons.

The next day, you told me how touched you were and how your heart was hit by my words and telling me that you’re already in love with me which is indeed kinda funny. Who would fall in love with me when I can’t even love myself? But you changed it, and I thank you for that. You’re indeed a blessing to me. You’re even in love with my flaws which made me warm inside. Knowing that there’s someone who will love me despite how a messed up shit I am and who would understand me even the dustiest corners of my mixed up soul is really kinda wow. Wow just wow!

August 27 was our very first date and we stayed in a very tranquil place. And I appreciated it so much. Having a buddy like you who has the same personality I have; introvert, pluviophile, having the same demons and all those funny whatnot that most people find it weird is really amazing. I just love it when every atom of yours craves every atom of mine. I didn’t even know that you would be this showy and clingy to me because I find you the "torpe type of guy. Knowing that this is your first time to be like this, knowing that I’m the first girl you love, seeing your twinkling eyes and smiling lips because of how happy you are made me feel lucky and blessed at the same time.

Thank you for everything, my everything, my happy pill, my Yin, my guy, my love, my sanity yet my insanity too, my deVill, my babe and my hubby! ( Argh, I find this corny, to be honest. Like “Tin, is this for real? Aww, sweet.” But who cares? *laughs*)

I’m a mixture
Of Yin and Yang
Of wild thoughts
Waited to be written
Of shattered dreams
Aching my broken heart
Of hopeless hopes
Yet still hoping
Of rain and ra
Of ups and downs
Where my demons collide
Introversiveness
I can’t deny
Wanted to be
One with nature
What a tranquil ambiance
I do appreciate
Four years of stay
I’m going to cherish
Of morbid thoughts
Of broken hopes
Of joyous memoirs
Mixed with the reality of life
Hoping to survive
The difficult challenge
Of college life

The Throne Of Fire by Rick Riordan

I got bored reading a book which I won’t be mentioning because I might hurt the author’s feelings even though my blog isn’t that popular but who knows he might stumble upon this little space of mine. I got bored with it also because I’ve already missed a lot of days of not reading it since the day I borrowed it from the library because of how hectic my schedule was. I can still remember that I finished answering our quiz on computer, going back and forth from the library to the rector’s office and I sat down on a chair inside the library and opened the book. I’ve lost my interest on it when my english professor told me that she doesn’t like the book’s author. I know that I shouldn’t be influenced but I didn’t feel any interest on the book anymore. So I got up, went to to the fiction section and look for another book to borrow and spend my awesome time on it. And I also swore at that time that I would really read the book. 

When I was at the fiction section, I was happy that there were more books compared to every time I check the section. Maybe because it was also Friday, the reason why there are a lot of books and of course, the borrowers already finished the books they’ve borrowed, I hope so. So I was looking through the titles and I saw a lot of Nicholas Sparks’ books. I grabbed his books and read the synopsis. Then, returned the books in their respective places when I saw Rick Riordan’s The Throne Of Fire. I read the synopsis and went to the library counter right away to borrow it. When the book was already issued on me. I sat down and when I opened the book, there was “Book 2” printed on it. I was upset. However, I remembered Jirah, my schoolmate last year, read the second book of Rick Riordan’s Heroes Of Olympus while I was reading the first one. I was anxious to know who borrowed the first book but I didn’t mind it and just decided to focus on the book instead.

The reasons why I borrowed the book are the following: 1) I love how Rick Riordan writes his books 2) The sun-god Ra was involved in the book and you all know, I guess, that the meaning of ‘Ra’ in my name is the God of the Sun of Egypt. My name is quite historical, by the way. 

It took me days to finish the book because of accounting101 and ACBA week. And when weekend came, I thanked God that I’ve finished the book. 

Synopsis

Ever since the gods of Ancient Egypt were unleashed in the modern world, Carter Kane and his sister Sadie have been in trouble. As descendants of the House of Life, the Kanes have some powers at their command, but the devious gods haven’t given them much time to master their skills at Brooklyn House, which has become a training ground for young magicians. And now their most threatening enemy yet - the chaos snake Apophis - is rising. If they don’t prevent him from breaking free in a few days’ time, the world will come to an end. In other words, it’s a typical week for the Kane family. To have any chance of battling the Forces of Chaos, the Kanes must revive the sun god Ra. But that would be a feat more powerful than any magician has ever accomplished. First they have to search the world for the three sections of the Book of Ra, then they have to learn how to chant its spells. Oh, and did we mention that no one knows where Ra is exactly? Narrated in two different wisecracking voices, featuring a large cast of new and unforgettable characters, and with adventures spanning the globe, this second installment in the Kane Chronicles is nothing short of a thrill ride.

Lessons

 We should trust more on ourselves even though how pressured we’re already are because the only person you can trust is yourself. As cliche as it may sound, “The devil was once was an angel.” so yeah, you should trust yourself and your capabilities to solve such tasks.
 There are true friends out there willing to sacrifice just for you even if it means losing their lives. 
 There are friends out there even though you know how scared they really are. They’ll conquer their fears just to be with you in order to successfully encounter such difficulties along the way.
 It takes time to know the real definition of true friend is. On the book, a true friend is being with you no matter what.

When the book was already issued on me. I sat down and when I opened the book, there was “Book 2” printed on it. I was upset. However, I remembered Jirah, my schoolmate last year, read the second book of Rick Riordan’s Heroes Of Olympus while I was reading the first one. I was anxious to know who borrowed the first book but I didn’t mind it and just decided to focus on the book instead.

The reasons why I borrowed the book are the following: 1) I love how Rick Riordan writes his books 2) The sun-god Ra was involved in the book and you all know, I guess, that the meaning of ‘Ra’ in my name is the God of the Sun of Egypt. My name is quite historical, by the way.

It took me days to finish the book because of accounting101 and ACBA week. And when weekend came, I thanked God that I’ve finished the book.

Synopsis

Ever since the gods of Ancient Egypt were unleashed in the modern world, Carter Kane and his sister Sadie have been in trouble. As descendants of the House of Life, the Kanes have some powers at their command, but the devious gods haven’t given them much time to master their skills at Brooklyn House, which has become a training ground for young magicians. And now their most threatening enemy yet - the chaos snake Apophis - is rising. If they don’t prevent him from breaking free in a few days’ time, the world will come to an end. In other words, it’s a typical week for the Kane family. To have any chance of battling the Forces of Chaos, the Kanes must revive the sun god Ra. But that would be a feat more powerful than any magician has ever accomplished. First they have to search the world for the three sections of the Book of Ra, then they have to learn how to chant its spells. Oh, and did we mention that no one knows where Ra is exactly? Narrated in two different wisecracking voices, featuring a large cast of new and unforgettable characters, and with adventures spanning the globe, this second installment in the Kane Chronicles is nothing short of a thrill ride.
