Saturday High

I am freakin' out.. after 4 monthss... I will be dating someone this afternoon... and will be watching Captain America. Let's see how it goes.

Fireflies by Owl City

You would not believe your eyes
If ten million fireflies
Lit up the world as I fell asleep

Cause they fill the open air
And leave teardrops everywhere
You'd think me rude, but I
Would just stand and stare.

I'd like to make myself believe
That planet Earth turns slowly.

It's hard to say that I'd
Rather stay awake when I'm asleep,
Cause everything is never as it seems.

Cause I'd get a thousand hugs
From ten thousand lightening bugs
As they tried to teach me how to dance.

A foxtrot above my head,
A sock-hop beneath my bed,
The disco ball is just hanging by a thread.

I'd like to make myself believe
That planet Earth turns slowly.
It's hard to say that I'd
Rather stay awake when I'm asleep,
Cause everything is never as it seems.
(When I fall asleep.)

Leave my door open just a crack.
(Please take me away from here.)
Cause I feel like such an insomniac.
(Please take me away from here.)

Why do I tire of counting sheep?
(Please take me away from here.)
When I'm far too tired to fall asleep

To ten million fireflies.
I'm weird, cause I hate goodbyes
I got misty eyes as they said farewell

But I'll know where several are
If my dreams get real bizarre
Cause I saved a few,
And I keep them in a jar.

I'd like to make myself believe
That planet Earth turns slowly.
It's hard to say that I'd
Rather stay awake when I'm asleep,
Cause everything is never as it seems.
(When I fall asleep.)

I'd like to make myself believe
That planet Earth turns slowly.
It's hard to say that I'd
Rather stay awake when I'm asleep
Because my dreams are bursting at the seams

Soulmate

Lately, I’ve been talking to a guy friend of mine who would often joke about finding his soulmate. In all honesty, I have been torn ever since if “soulmates” actually exist until I read Paulo Coelho’s Brida, which gave me enlightenment about the topic. I know the book was fiction but nevertheless, the details seemed so clear that at the back of my mind, I agree with the whole concept of soulmates. I rarely talk about it just because I know I am a hopeless romantic and I believe in the impossible which most people find really weird. Most are practical and not really up to the idea of finding the one who’s really meant for you but rather go with what they want regardless if connection emotionally or spiritually was there or not.

So, I was thinking about it last night too. I was speaking with Kae through twitter and I was telling her how I wish I can meet my soulmate soon. It’s a crazy thought but I think I found mine. And it’s funny that just like Brida, I knew it was him but I was trying to erase the thought because there are other things I should be thinking about or working on in my life. I felt it. It was weird that I found someone who does the things that I have always wished someone would do. Little things like ordering the same food as I do, liking the same music and the same hobbies which is close to impossible that someone from the other part of the world would be like, knowing you barely know each other.

It was the feeling that you know he would talk to you among the crowd and you start to stare at him and recognize that he is familiar in a sense that you know you will get along well. It’s that thought when you are listening to good music and realize that it was something that reminds you of him. But no, I won’t be romantically involved anytime soon. I am taking my time. This soulmate of mine will wait, he can wait until I am a better person. Until I realize what’s best for us: To be together or apart.

Loving The Me Time and Me Chances

I haven't seriously blogged about my life recently. Sorry for that. I was too tired and a lot of things had been going on that I can't even find time to blog about my thoughts.

Well, honestly speaking, I was empty the past few days. I was working real hard recently and I am focusing on my goals. I had the chance to be close with people I never expected I would ever mingle with and I guess, this is the miracle of being single. It's opening your door to more people, more chances of learning and more time to realize just what you want in life. What are negotiables and non-negotiables for you.

I met a lot of great people recently. Interesting people, I may say, from different walks of life. They are the reason why I am inspired right now. Don't get me wrong. My family is my biggest inspiration, but those that I have met recently, came as a surprise which made things better for me. I am thankful I met them and that I am now building a strong relationship with each of them.

I haven't dated anybody in 4 months which I think is the best decision I made for myself. Some guys already expressed their intentions to me and I appreciate the fact that they find me attractive because I am me. I appreciate the fact that they are enjoying my company and wanted to get to know me better.

I am not closing my door to a possible relationship anytime soon even though I have said before that I can't imagine myself being in a relationship anytime soon... Because really, I think we can never tell what's gonna happen next. I just trust that the best will happen... In God's time.

Looking Back

I just love clothes that have sexy back...

Republiq With My Cousin Mario!

Saturday night, I was out partying with one of the closest person in my heart. I partied with my cousin, Mario! We haven't seen each other for about 2 to 3 years and I was so surprised when he actually sent me a message asking how he can be guestlisted in Republiq on Saturday. So, being the party girl that I am, luckily, I know how that goes. I've been partying at Republiq for quite sometime now. I even call it my "happy place". So, last night was the most anticipated night. I had the chance to see him again and i met new people as well. I learned he now works as a Consumer Marketing Manager at Nestle Philippines which is actually one of the top companies here in the Philippines. I also learned he had an operation recently and still trying to recover from it. We talked about so many things and had fun dancing with his friends. Here are some pics I have taken from the great night with him and his friends.

Monte Carlo With My Girls

6PM, I was in a hurry to get to Alabang simply because I have a movie date scheduled with 2 of my closest friends. However, the van that I took didn't leave on time and it was raining really hard so I got to Alabang later than expected. I got there past 7PM and I was soaking wet and looking really unpleasant.

So, 8:40 was the movie schedule. It was a nice, girly movie and it showed so many nice spots in Europe. After the movie, Janella had to leave early whil Kath and i decided to stay behind and have pizza at Giligan's. So, of course, part of the girl bonding is to talk about our failed lovelives and how our breakups took place and the realizations we had. It was a short conversation since we had to leave before 12mn but definitely, we were able to catch up on the basics. We will be watching Harry Potter next week and also we will be seeing each other on Friday next week, Mark Bermudez' birthday.

I enjoyed my Friday with the girls more than the movie. Oh, and I want to go to Europe. can someone take me there? Puhleez.... ? :)

Lucille Is Getting Married!

Yesterday I received a message in Facebook with an attachment. I downloaded it and after that I was in total shock. Lucille, my good friend back in 6th grade is getting married this coming July 16th. We’re of the same age. We haven’t seen each other in years because after graduation, she moved to Lanao with her Mom. However, we still maintained a good communication through Social Networking sites. Thank God for their existence right?

So anyway, when I heard the news, I cried. Like really. I became so emotional. Haha! It was because I know Lucille is a very sweet and smart girl. Our muse in class and a leader in school. She has that strong personality which made her one-of-a-kind and I’m so happy that she finally found the man she wants to spend the rest of her life with. Not everybody in my age gets married. Some just get pregnant, some had live-in partners. Don’t get me wrong. I have nothing against those who weren’t married but living with their man and having a family of their own. It’s just that I feel, Lucille is a very lucky girl because she’s getting married. In this modern age, it’s not so usual anymore. I met some guys who would rather have many kids than get married to a woman. They’ve been so occupied with the thought that being single is the life of a man and being a Mom is the life of a woman. Lucille found a man who truly loves her and offered her a lifetime commitment that not every man can give.

We won’t be able to attend Lucille’s wedding but definitely, we are wishing her a perfect moment on her wedding where her happily ever after starts. After that, she will have a new life already with bigger and brighter priorities in life. I think marriage is the second best thing in a woman’s life. First is becoming a Mom.

We are all growing up and getting to the part that we never thought we’ll be headed to. It’s just nice that we have seen each other grow and mature. The remaining singles in the group would just be me, Janella, Kath, Marky, Elmer, Nedlloyd, Nico and Jimmy. Who’s next is something we don’t know.



Cheers!

Thank You Post

Today is a very laid back day for me. home alone, a lot of room for my thoughts and realizations and just basically concentrating about anything and everything about me. Now, I also feel that it is the perfect time to THANK the people who made me happy, strong and accepted regardless of what mistakes I have done in this life. These people are the people that I will forever be thankful for.

1. Janella
My bestfriend since 6th grade. Capricorn, born on Janury 17th. I so love her for being my betsfriend all these years. She made me feel what true friendship means. Always one call or text away. We lost contact for sometime because as we grow, we have to deal with our own issues but nevertheless, friends will always be friends and we're still here for each other specially when either of us feels like we can't face the world alone.

2.Marky
My guy bestfriend and the only person I know who doesn't recognize the existence of curfews. haha! He is the only guy I trust who is outside of my family. He's like a brother to me and we've been through a lot together. We would go out and it doesn't matter if I end up crying as I tell him my story of heartaches and pain. he just patiently listens. A Gemini like me, born on June 21st and single since birth.

3. Katherine/Kath
Kath and I have been friends since 5th grade. We have the same personality. Outgoing, fun, creative and always up for something different. She's my out of town, gym, malling, partying buddy and definitely a soul sister. Always up for dating and on the search for Mr. Right. Born on January 23rd, Aquarian and had just 1 boyfriend.

4. My Family
My family gives me the assurance that there is something good out of the bad things I have experienced in life. I am thankful that I have a very supportive family. they are the reason behind every success that I had with things I want in this life. I am a go-getter just because they made me believe that nothing is impossible in this life as long as you are willing to get what you want.

EPIC NIGHT with Friends

Saturday was the day I've been looking forward to! First, because I was scheduled to watch Transformers and second, because I will be watching with people close to my heart. I woke up early that day just to get tickets as soon as the mall opens because I know lines will be super long. I got to the mall around 10AM and found myself lined up in one of the ticket booths. It was crowded in as early as 10AM! I was busy tweeting about what was going on just in case someone was planning to go a little later. Just trying to set expectations for people. It's like everybody's watching Transformers 3. So, anyway, I got 3 tickets only to find out that Marky and Mark wanted to watch too and I can't catch up on the line anymore as the number of people doubled after about an hour or so. Then I decided to go to Southern Flavors to grab lunch. I wasn't really starving so I just got myself and Iced Tea and Quesadillas while waiting for either my sister, Gladys, or my bestfriend, Janella, to arrive. Soon after, my sister arrived and ordered nachos, which was by the way, really tasty! I will post the pics of the food we got here: http://bigappettite.blogspot.com. Enjoy the pics below!
