Not Made For Parties

I guess IΒ was never made for parties or anything that requires dresses and heels.

Last December, I wore a sneakers in a semi-formal event. I literally walked into an event where most, if not all, of the ladies were in their cocktail dresses, full make-up, and high heels.

Apparently, I am new in the community and still not going out of my shell. I didn’t bother to ask anyone nor get curious about the attire of the night. If not with my friend who is also new that time, I would have walked out.

At least we were able to pull out our performance and still enjoy the night. That’s what I told myself. Epic fail. πŸ˜€

Then last month, I sneaked in a little black dress paired with strapped stilettos during our graduation ceremony. But when we were about to start, the straps of the stilettos snapped. Another epic fail.

Photo taken by Unyii before this sassy stilettos let me down. This is the best photo I can grab.

 

I don’t know what to do that time. Pinagpapawisan nako ng malamig. All I have is a pink slippers that I intend to wear after the event. I am ready to go back to our house and grab another shoes even if it meant missing half of the ceremony. Because there’s no way I’m gonna go in there with pink slippers.

But thank God, a beautiful soul let me borrow her shoes just in time. One of the event organizers traded her shoes with my pink slippers. She’s an angel!

Just in time. πŸ™‚

 

Hampasin Kita Ng Sandok, Eh!

In this world of “just do it”
Think first before you act.
Yes, you can do anything
But not everything is beneficial.

Won’t hurt to tell your plans to a friend and look from their perspective. If they are being objective, their advice will keep you grounded.

Nung sinabi ko kay Cham na kating-kati nako magpost sa WP–actually nakadraft na nga–muntik na niya ko hampasin ng sandok. Sayang kasi bes, art pa rin yun. Pero sabi ko nga eh, baka mahalo lang nang mahalo ang feelings. Nakakahilo yun. 

*puso

Sa tingin ko mas gusto niya talaga kong hampasin ng sandok dahil sa iniisip kong gawin. She’s just being nice kasi hindi pa kami close.  Hahaha!

In Between “I’m Okay” And “I’m Not”

“Would you like a company or would you like some time alone?” ~ Fin to Gabe

A Cornish Stranger by Liz Fenwick

That’s the question of Fin to Gabe when shen was about to read the letter of her grandmother, Jaunty. The letter, which was written on Jaunty’s final days, would reveal the truth about their family’s true identity.

That question strongly resonated to me. I somehow wanted someone to ask if I needed company or some time alone. Because, honestly, I need a little of both. Somewhere in between.

I want a time alone so I could process all these thoughts and somehow see a light at the end of the tunnel and finally call it home. Right now, I have all the time needed to be alone but I fail to intentionally create time for myself. 

But I also want a company at reach when I am lost in my train of thoughts. Someone I can connect instantly without having the need to explain myself. Someone who could understand deeply beyond my smile, joke, tears and positive outlook. Some shoulder to cry on without pointing out what I did wrong nor tell me plainly what to do. Some ears that would listen intently, sincerely. I know that would be someone perfect. And I know you would suggest where to look at, but I somehow lost my way and I cannot move an inch right now.

I’m stuck in the middle of “I’m okay” and “I’m not.”

Isn’t this absurd to hear from someone who just came from the Best Ten Days of their life?

Ironic.  

  

Happy Anniversary!

Let’s celebrate milestones, shall we?

Happy 4th Anniversary!!

I can’t believe that it has been four years since I started blogging.

This platform has been my sounding board for I am not as vulnerable to my other social media account than here. Since I can write better poems when in pain, I pen all my hurt in a poem so it won’t linger in my heart. So if you’ve been following my blog for the past two years, thank you for sticking around, specially on my dark-bitter poems, rants, and whatnot.

But now that I have received freedom through Christ, expect a more positive write-up that would hopefully bring encouragement to our weary hearts.

Surprisingly, I’ve gained new friends and support system here in WP.

I met a blogger for the first time and I’m-oh-so glad I did! I didn’t expect us to be so connected. I thought our meet-up would be awkward but to my surprise, it was soΒ awesome and fun. She’s one of the people I love to hang out and pick brains with. We don’t mindΒ trolling each other’s post in WP and IG. I love her humor and style of writing. I’m really glad we became friends. Itatago ko nalang siya sa pangalang:Β Aysabaw.

Aysabaw is a hotelier by day, blogger by night and a Rock Star in between. She is serving hot soup of awesomeness here: Aysabaw.com

I also became part of an online group of Single Bloggers that as soon as you join, they will encourage you to get out of the group.Β πŸ˜€ Philippine Single Association (PSA)Β has been my support system specially when I was confused and downcast. I haven’t met them yet but whenever we connect on FB, Β we feel like a familyΒ for weΒ build each other up. It helped that most of us are Christians because we are constantly asking and receiving prayers from each other.

Free e-Book, anyone? Download here:Β The Book of Single (Free eBook).

I offer my warmest gratitude to all my fellow bloggers who have been liking and reading my posts and also to my close friends who are supporting silently by “keeping an eye” on my posts.

Cheers to more creativity! See you around! 😊😊
