I’m moving!

It’s been a good three or more so years with Tumblr. But it’s about time to move to a new home. 

I’m currently setting up, but I’ll get back to you real soon! 🙂

On Writing

On Writing

I’ve been writing more than reading lately and it feels quite refreshing. I mean, I love books – they are a little piece of heaven on earth, really – but, nothing feels like words flowing through your head and writing them down on paper or typing them up on a blank canvass. Nothing feels like feeling an emotion and being able to describe it using words effortlessly. Nothing is more frustrating than not being able to get a certain word out of your mouth at the perfect moment, when it feels like you’ve ruined it. 

Writing has always been my art, and it took a while for me to find it. How did I find my art? I was inspired. I was inspired by all the amazing writers all around me. Some have url’s I’ve known by heart, and some just use words and turn them into sentences and paragraphs and make me feel. That’s the best part, I guess – making other people feel what you do. Expressing yourself through words like heartbeats. 

I am thankful, thankful for all the wonderful opportunities given to me to write. I am thankful, for every chance I get to share my art to the world. I am thankful, to all the people who has inspired me through their words.

I am thankful. 

How to Write About the One You Love

How to Write About the One You Love

How do you write about the person you love?

I use metaphors, because simple adjectives are not enough to describe how you make me feel.

No, I don’t use metaphors or adjectives; because no words can describe the way I feel when I think about you, when I hear your name, or when we’re together.

I think about the sun and its warmth, and how it brightens my day. I think about the winter and the cold, like the way you make me feel when you’re gone. I think about what could be going on in your thoughts, whether I’m part of it or not.

At the end of the day, I do write about you, in the simplest way I could possibly can, using the most extraordinary words of the English language. I write about you, not because you’ve filled up most of my thoughts, but because I want to remember everything about you: every moment, every smile, every detail.

I write about you in the most serene way: how peaceful you look when you sleep, or how your eyes never seem to leave a page when you read. I write about you and our adventures, because they are greater than any love story ever told.

I write about you and us, even if ‘we’ don’t exist.

I write about you and this one-way love story, because you’ll never really know how I feel.

I write about me, writing about you and how you inspire me to play the odds.

And if it were up to me, you were probably the most beautiful piece I’ve ever written. 

Polaroids and things

Polaroids and things

Holla, y’all! Okay, I know I said I’m going to stop blogging but heck, we all know it’s hard to stay away from good ‘ol Tumblr. Tumblr peeps are just amazing. So here’s a little update from the past few months. 

  • UP’s academic calendar shift. Finally, after a good dose of arguments and discussions here and there, the Board of Regents approved the academic calendar shift to make amends according to the ASEAN harmonization in 2015. Long story short: UP is one of the universities to start classes on August and end in June. UST follows, starting their academic year on July. Ateneo is set to start classes on August next school year. 
  • After a few quite pressurized days, I have been elected to be UP Sandigan’s Secretary General. Quite a dream come true really! It was one of my goals when I joined our org. And now I’m excited as the new school year unfolds!
  • Hell week. Can’t even stress it enough. But eventually, I managed to pass all my subjects with flying colors! Sort of. 
  • We had our community drugstore internship in April, and our Cavite community immersion last May. I have learned so many things! Mainly on how to become patient when interacting with others, how to adapt to a community, and becoming more aware on the health status of some communities and barangays in our country. 
  • I have been writing more than reading. And it feels good to express my thoughts on paper. A little inspiration goes a long long way, too!
  • Before my siblings went back to school, we went to El Nido, Palawan! The place was just breathtaking. The sand, sun, and sea never felt better! To make things more exciting, we’re going back to Palawan next year, this time to Coron! 
  • So far now, I’ve been bumming around the house. It has been quite awhile, except for a couple of catching up with high school friends and movie dates with the college gang. Hoping for more. 🙂
