10 Things I had to learn by myself (my mother never taught me):

i. Blame the person who hurts you, not yourself. Never blame yourself for not being what they wanted or not being “good enough.” You are made with perfectly flawed traits, stitched together to be loved unconditionally.

ii. Not everyone you love will love you back and the people who do love you, you won’t always reciprocate the feelings. But that doesn’t make them or you a bad person. You can’t love everyone and not everyone will love you. I refuse to blame the people that can’t find it in their soul to give me what I give them. I don’t give to get back. I give because I want to and because I can.

iii. Don’t let one person tell you negative things about yourself. One opinion out of a million does not make you who you are. No one paints a masterpiece for you, you are the art piece. You make who you are. You are the artist.

iv. Don’t ever settle. People always feel safer with things that they are used to and comfortable with instead of seeking for the heart pounding feelings and moments that take their breaths away. I never want it to be easy; I want it to be hard to breathe and suffocating when I give something my all. I want to learn how to survive through that.

v. Learn how to say no. No, I do not want to dance with you. No, I do not want to kiss you. No, I do not want to date you. No, I do not want to do this. No, I do not want to do that. Because that does not make me happy and that does not make me feel comfortable, so no. And I don’t need to give you a reason nor do I need to make up an excuse to say “no.”

vi. There are different kinds of people. Don’t always catergorize people in groups because people are not meant to be labelled. Just because one person hurts you, does not mean the ones in the future will. Just because one person holds a knife doesn’t mean the next one will use it. There is good out there; there is good in the world and there is good in people. Not everyone is a monster. I strongly believe that majority of the population is good.

vii. Do not let the past prevent you from living in the future. Do not let the pain and hurt take over. Don’t close yourself up to others just because you have been broken before. Never allow the demons of yesterday to control the beauty that is to come in the future. Vow to never allow it to always be stormy for the sun does eventually shine down on all things beautiful. I am beautiful, and so are you.

viii. You can swim across the world for someone but they might not even step outside in the drizzle for you. Even if you hold the umbrella for them.

ix. Never give someone the power to rid you of yourself. Don’t ever fall out of your routine or lose who you are permanently. That is so important.

x. Love yourself. Learn to love the birthmark on your face, the chipmunk cheeks, the thighs that jiggle when you walk, the nose you think is too flat, and your fingers that are too short. Learn to appreciate your almond shaped eyes, your skin color, the thin hair that doesn’t grow fast, the beauty mark above your lips, and the small gap between your teeth. Learn to love your sense of humor, your laughter, your emotions, your tendency to trust easily, and how happy you always are. Learn to love the way you love others deeply, how you sometimes fear being lonely, the way you enjoy walks alone, and the radiance in your soul. Learn to love yourself at 3AM when you cannot sleep and can only think of the skeletons hiding in your own closets and learn to love yourself at 3PM when you are cranky and unable to get out of bed. Learn to love yourself and come to terms with the fact that you are you, and that will never change.

Kanta yan ni Julie Anne San Jose. Favorite kase yan ng kaibigan ko kaya nagddownload ako ng kanta niya sa playlist ko. Tapos ilang beses ko nang pinaulit-ulit pakinggan. Eto na nga yung theme song ko para kay Dan eh. 

You are my only. You are the one. You’re everything I want and baby. I should have told you that I love you.

Oh diba. Simula pa lang sapol nako. Siya lang naman kase yung gusto ko, siya lang yung nag-iisa, walang katulad nyorot. Hahaha. Gusto ko na rin talagang sabihin sa kanya na gustong gusto ko siya kaso nga em so afraid to show my feelings huhuhu.

Oh, nothing compares to you. I’m crazy thinking ‘bout you lately. You and I were meant to be. And baby this is real. Everytime you turn around and walk away. I just can’t resist and I’m wishing I could say..

And lately rin laging siya yung nasa isip ko. Di mawala-wala. Kapag may ginagawa ako, bigla ko na lang siyang naaalala, kapag naman wala siya lang laman ng isip ko huhuhu. 

You are my dream. You are my hope. You are my love and baby you are my heart. I want you to know and let it show that I’m in love. Everytime I see you near, I wanna be close to you but how can it be? ’Coz I know it’s impossible to make it happen, but still you are.

Kaso nga hindi ako pwedeng umamin, hindi ako pwedeng magsalita. Kase natatakot ako. Eto na naman tong karuwagan ko nyeta. Gaano ko man kagusto, syempre kalangan ko ring mapahard-to-get waht hahaahhaha! Pero promise gusto ko siya lagi kausap, laging kasama, gusto ko lagi siyang nakikita :(

You know you had me with your beautiful smile. It’s always in my head, I can’t get you off my mind you got me fallin?

Ewan ko pero hindi talaga mawala sa isip ko yung itsura mo pag seryoso eh, lalo naman kung nakangiti auuuuh heaven! Feeling ko nga namumula ako every time eh. Shet ang harot ko bat ganon hahahahahahahaha. Pero seryoso, nabubuo araw ko pag nangiti siya hayyy.

Maybe someday, I’ll be with you. You’ll say the words I love to hear because I need you here and I’ll do everything..

Kahit na sabihin kong hindi ako umaasa na magustuhan din niya ako, syempre kashitan ko lang yun. Sino bang babae ang di naghangad na magustuhan ng lalaking gusto niya? Tanga ko naman kung ganon. Syempre deep inside umaasa pa rin ako. Malay mo diba, hindi natin alam, malay mo kami pala talaga para sa isa’t-isa. Pero okay ang corny na hahahaha!



Sabi ko kahapon kakausapin ko na siya ngayon eh. Kaso nahiya na naman ako nyeta sarap kong i-flush sa inidoro hahaha. Halos buong araw ko siyang nakita! Nasa room pa namin siya ng hapon kase may ini-install siya sa lappy ni friend. Huhuhu. Ni hindi man lang ako nakapag-“hi unspoken friend.” Konti na lang talaga masasapok ko na sarili ko kaso baka mapagkamalan akong baliw eh hahaha. Eh kase naman miss na miss ko na tapos lagi ko na lang pinapairal yung hiya huhu. I want to cry a river. Tas hinaharot pa ng isa kong kaibigan nakakainis. Ako hanggang ganto na lang letse. Anyways, nag-pe kami bandang 4:30 sa gym tas pagbalik ng coc, nakita ko siya sa likod. May kausap sa phone. Nalungkot ako bigla :( :( :( Baka kase girlfriend eh. Baka umaasa ako na single sya tas taken na naman pala. Abaaaaa matinde na yun. Lahat na lang huhu. Pero sana naman kase magulang lang niya yun, sana namimiss lang siya sana wala siyang girlfriend. Sana sana sanaaaaa. Hahahaha. 


I want you to wrap your arms around me so I feel your chest rise and fall with every breath, play with my hair and run your lips down my neck so I shiver against your touch, pull me close and let me fall asleep against you and I’ll feel safe


Hindi ko alam kung kelan ko narealize na gusto na pala kita. Hindi ko alam kung matatawag ko bang infatuation or crush lang to or love. Basta isa lang ang sigurado ako, ikaw yung dahilan kung bakit masaya ako ngayon at the same time eh malungkot. Sabi ko noon di kita magugustuhan kase mabait ka lang naman, achaka magkapamilya tayo sa org. Pero unti-unti yung nagbago. Masyadong mabilis yung pangyayari, na kahit ako eh hindi ko inexpect, pero unti-unti kitang nakilala eh. Hindi ka lang mabait, pero mabuti ka pang tao. Masarap kasama, may laman. Isa ka sa mga taong bibihira lang magsalita pero lahat ng sinasabi mo tumatatak. May pagka-misteryoso ka din. Ang sarap mong titigan, lalo na pag ang lalim ng iniisip mo. Minsan nangangarap na lang ako nang di ko alam, basta magugulat na lang ako kase iniisip na pala kita unconsciously. Sana kase ganon lang kadali to eh. Sigurado ako sa nararamdaman ko sayo, never pa akong naging sure, until now. Ang hindi ko sure eh kung ibabalik mo yung nararamdaman ko sayo. Kase hindi naman ako nagsasabi, nahihiya ako sayo. Pero hanggang asa na lang ba ako? Siguro nga yun lang naman kase yung pwede kong gawin sa mga panahong to. Basta yaena. Di ko alam gagawin ko. Kakausapin na kita sa monday. I miss you :(

You’re going to fall in love one day,
and you’re going to want to stay there.
It’s like waking up from a dream
and realizing you’re still in it,
even after the alarm clock screams like it’s hurting
and the birds sing loudly enough to break the sky open.
You ‘re going to fall in love one day,
and you’re going to watch yourself get left behind.
You’ll know when it’s coming,
but you’ll still act surprised when it does.
I don’t know what you thought was gonna happen,
baby, but this is it.
And maybe you’ll hold your breath
like you’re waiting for a different ending
and maybe you’ll hate your mother like it’s her fault
for not protecting you better
and maybe you’ll forget you even loved anyone else.
It’s okay, baby,
you’re going to fall in love,
and you’re going to eventually fall out of love,
and you’re gonna get better
and you’re gonna cry like you’re being reborn,
because maybe you are
and maybe you needed to break your heart
to realize just how big it really is.
You’re going to fall in love one day,
and it won’t hurt this time.
It will feel like a storm you
didn’t know was coming,
and you’ll learn how to dance in the rain again
instead of running away from it.

— Y.Z, you probably knew it all along
