I frequently read your blog and you inspire me a lot to start a tumblr account, too! But, I doubt my blogging skills because I am really not that into sharing my private thoughts, unless you are a close friend to me, or you're my mom because I fear that someone maybe hurt when they come over my blog and read it. Can you give me some tips? And btw, I have learned to love your blog and I am still wanting more from you. Thank you!
You need to learn to blog for yourself, not for other people. It is more than just for people to see, but for you to discover who you really are. Tips? Uhh, write, read, write and read!! And give blogging some time, it will be worth it. Update me if you have already made a blog, I would be happy to check it! Thank you, that means a lot to me. *hugs*
We live in a world where people are used to fast and convenient. People go to fast food chains, copy-paste their homework and Google the things they do not know. Just. Like. That. Eventually, we start to take things for granted without us even noticing it. I have seen so many girls unappreciated and feeling worthless inside relationships they never thought twice about. Some people feeling all left out in a group of friends they are in. I thought about the hearts I had broken. The ones that had broken mine. The people who make this a game on a routine basis. I ask myself, what do these people really want? Why do relationships, most of the time, end up in broken hearts?
As I met more people in life, I started to grasp that oftentimes, individuals accept what is in front of them because they are afraid to wait. They are fearful that it might be the last person in line. They are pressured by the world getting in and out of relationships easily.What ifs are running through their mind, back and forth. Yes, it is scary, but a love that overwhelms and makes someone feel again, I believe, is worth the patience and sitting.
In love, no matter how crazy it is, settling for convenient is not the right or best answer, we wait until someone comes to pursue and to make us feel worth it. We have different standards, but it doesn’t end there. Everyone deserves someone who will love them as much as they do. Yes, waiting can suck a bit and people can judge our perspective of love and standards. I get that, it is crazy hoping for someone to come by sit next to us while drinking a cup of coffee inside our favorite shop or bump us during a rainy day with a yellow umbrella and live happily ever after; however, I think what is normal is knowing that we deserve better.
In the waiting game, people who know that they deserve someone better do not find “the one”, they become “the one”. They do not just wait, they grow and do things in the world that make their identity more secured. They need someone, but they are also learning to stand up for themselves and dream for something bigger. Do not just accept what is offered, know your worth. It can be an insanely long road, but it is going to be so beautiful you might not even believe it.

Summer is one of the many things a student, like me, always look out for every year. This is (finally!) the time when we can chill with friends and spend quality time with our family. Personally, I am thrilled of this year’s summer vacation because I have 4 months to spend until school starts.
I have not done so much since the start of summer, but I have already been to family adventures and an overnight party with some high school friends. I’m not yet heading to the beach since, but my dad and I are planning to book a trip to Batam. Making this one boring and dull is not even an option, so I decided to make a list of the little things I am intending to do within the scope of my summer vacation.
1. Learn new things.
Probably skateboard? Idk, I just want to learn something new. Asked my best friend if he could teach me over summer and he said yes!! I just need to buy one or he needs to get his board fixed. I freakin want to learn skateboarding!!!
2. Read 10 books.
I have finished Everyday a couple of days ago and starting a new Sophie Kinsella book today called, “Remember Me?”. A great line of books, i.e. Fangirl and Peculiar Children, are still on my iBooks. Yep, I started to torrent ebooks when vacation started because money probs.
3. Avoid chilling alone.
You guys may know that I always - and somehow learned to love - chill alone, and I know that this is one thing I need to change if I want my summer to be really fun and worth all the time. There was actually a time when a barista tried to talk me about it, and asked me that it is actually better if I could bring someone with me. I just smiled and told her that I will try. Well, I will not try, I will do… soon.
4. Run again, maybe 10 kilo meters a week.
I am seriously gaining weight for the past few weeks!! I need to start running again and watch what I eat. I’ll be doing a lot of walking in Laguna, so I better get used to it.
5. Watch all the existing seasons of Grey’s Anatomy.
Currently on the 3rd season of Grey’s Anatomy! As I said to my last The Sunday Currently blog post, I’m getting addicted and attached to this series, but it has too much drama and almost every other episodes can make my cry like a baby. I’m learning life and medical lessons.. what more can I ask for, right?
6. Coffee with some bloggers.
Been wanting to meet some bloggers (Hello Amiela, Reuben and Sam!!). Ben and I actually planned to have coffee soon! Blogging has been my great escape since then, but I never expected to have friends over this one thing I am really passionate about, so thank you blogger friends!!
7. Add stamps to my passport.
As the saying goes, “The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.” Already booked somewhere for a month, but travelling alone is getting on my nerves.
8. Go on to endless adventures with high school friends.
Pretty sure that the friendships I made on high school did not end after graduation, so I will never take these special relationships for granted through time. I will always try to send texts first, ask how my friends are and plan catch ups.
9. Find a new place to explore and chill.
Starbucks is starting to get boring, and my money’s asking for help too, hahaha! Maybe try to take a break on coffee shops? I need to be somewhere peaceful.
10. Spend one hour outside everyday.
This is really hard to do especially because it is very easy to just stay in my bed and watch TV shows everyday, right? An hour everyday can do a lot to me, I believe. Bike, watch sunset at the roof or visit my grandma? I don’t know yet, but these little things can mean a lot.
Lastly, I will not forget to blog about my adventures. Anyways, tell me about your summer plans this year, I would be very glad and excited to read it. Also, I might get ideas from you guys and have more things added on the list. Hope you guys had a memorable Holy Week with your family!
Little Things in Red
“When you dip her in the middle of the dance floor, it is the color of her dress. When she whispers in your ear, it is the color of her lips. When you make love, it is the trace you want her to leave all over your body. When she places her palm over your heart, it is the color that comes to the surface as her fingertips trail like a sentence that can never be finished. When you see her in the bedroom with another, it is the color of your breath. When you smash the vase in the hall, it is the color that threatens you to abandon the shattered pieces. When you scream at the top of your lungs, it is the color that pierces the atmosphere. When she hears you, it is the color of her pulse. When you look in her eyes for the last time, it is the fading color of your heart falling to your knees. It is not the color you see when she leaves.” - Tyler Ford
i. Seventeen days ago, someone made me realize that the most painful word in the English language is “stay”.
ii. There were nights that I can feel the caffeine rushing into my veins causing me not to go back to sleep. I cry at 3 am in the morning not because of the coffee, but how things will never be the same again.
iii. I sometimes daydream of how we should have ended up if I had that 15-second guts to admit how I truly feel, but feelings change and all I can do is think about it.
iv. The innocence we once had as kids vanished like smoke through time.
v. I loved 500 Days of Summer, but I didn’t believe that when people grow, they grow out of each other until our friendship changed. I am sorry, but I gave up on you a long time ago.
vi.You have no idea how tempting it is to go back to how it was back then; however, I will never learn if I keep on coming back to my comfort zone. I’m sorry, I miss you, but goodbye is really necessary.
