My own kind of adventure

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

Throughout my life, I’ve always belonged to a small group of friends consisting of three people and have had a best friend of my own separately. It was not difficult being friends with me but it was my choice to watchfully let people into my life. I thought maybe because it was hard to let them come inside my comfort zone. People, they had to break my walls. It wasn’t easy, not because I couldn’t let them but because I was terrified of them knowing me more.

I thought having many friends was too much to put up with. But these people, they were all so surprising that I didn’t expect I could handle their tantrums, endless dramas, inside jokes and not to mention, their unique personalities that made them special.

I’d like to say sorry. Sorry, for being the most childish in the group, for hurting you sometimes in any way possible may it be through the words I’ve said or actions I’ve done so carelessly, for mistakenly proving something that at times caused us chaos, for the times I wasn’t there for you when you needed me, for not being able to say the right words whenever you needed advice, and for all my shortcomings and mishaps as your friend.


I’m thanking you for staying by my side. Thank you, for being the bigger one and understanding my mood swings and bizarre needs and wants, for truly showing how you felt for me whenever I got sad or even depressed, for supporting me still and for choosing me as one of your best friends.

I’m so happy that I hope you’d also value this friendship like I do. It’s heartbreaking saying goodbye to you because honestly you made my BSA Junior life bearable enough that I actually survived it. Know that whatever happens, I’ll always be here in spirit or even physically if time would still allow me. And If I’d repeat junior year, again and again, I’d still choose all of you. Now, there’s no need to look for “the one” when I’ve got five. I’m rooting for you guys and gals.

The Ship That Won’t Ever Sail

I want to write something about you. Yes, I just decided I want to write something about you. I don’t know why. Maybe not about you exactly. Might just be something about how you keep on making me feel excited every time you’d want to talk to me. Or maybe it’s just concerning about something you said to me three weeks ago that I don’t know why I still remember.  I’m not sure actually, I sense it’s about you keeping me up all night thinking whatever happened spending the whole day with you and the gang. But mostly, it was all about spending the whole day with you. Do you get me now? Are you as confused as I am right now?

You’ll probably just laugh at me right now. I’m guessing that if I tell you the truth you’ll just say I’m kidding and believe me, no matter how hard I try for you to notice you’ll never understand me. Sometimes I wished you knew but I’m glad you didn’t.

I wanted so bad to drop clues or maybe show you hints but I was always terrified. I didn’t what to know the outcome. I never wanted. I’d love to stay where we are now. I don’t want you to stop looking after me nor considering my own wellbeing before anyone else. I really appreciate those things that I’m being selfish to you sometimes. I don’t want to be that person. I’m not even sure if you’re treating others just the same. I don’t know how long I can hold on to something we have but I don’t want to ruin this. Why would I ever dream of ruining something that actually works? That’s why I’m telling myself to stop. I need to stop, don’t I?

Low maintenance friendships

I may have found the best of friends I could ever have in highschool but I never thought I’ll meet more of them in college.

I have this theory that you’re only friends with people on college for the reason that you see them on a daily basis. These people proved me wrong.

We may have argued a lot about trivial things that sometimes don’t even matter but I’ll always miss our inside jokes, our petty dramas in life and how we’d talk about our commonalities, interests and set aside our differences for awhile.

Edit

I’d say that this, this is the kind of friendship I know would last. And I’m hoping that we’d all still be part of each other’s lives five years, ten years or even twenty years from now.

My Course and Whys

5 excuses for why we failed not at love but Accounting.

1. “It’s not you, it’s me.” Remember those days when you were still young, naive and as carefree as you can be. Let’s go back to the time when your father asked you for the first time what you wanted to be when you grow up and confidently answered him “I want to be a doctor. I want to save the lives of many people.” “I want to be a lawyer. I want to fight for what is right.” “I want to be an architect or an engineer. I’m going to build my own house someday.” Now, tell me, did the 5-year old you ever thought of saying “I want to be an accountant. I want to analyze an organization’s financial operations.” Probably not and probably this is one of the reasons why you fail in Accounting; because it wasn’t your dream. Perhaps, you’ve been planning your whole life ever since you were in kindergarten; what kind of person you’re going to be, in what university you’re going to get in and finally the dream job you want, the dream job you’re going to love. If right now you’re stuck in Accountancy for reasons other people may and will never know, may it be failing the qualification exams for Engineering or having no chance to be included in a quota. The first step to succeeding this course is learning to love it. When you start loving Accountancy everything will add up. It may be difficult but what’s the sense in blaming yourself for not being able to take the path you wished to.

2. “Never allow someone to be your priority while allowing yourself to be their option.” Most of the time, when we’re not doing anything, and midterm or final exams still months away; we tend to distract ourselves with minor things to do yet clearly we still have more backlogs to finish. We’re unable to assume our responsibilities and set our priorities. We’d always choose to watch kdramas/series/movies than pay attention to our books on a free day. Yes, it’s called a rest day for a reason but don’t kid me, even on a hell week you’d still manage to finish an episode. Always remember, there are some things that you will have to say no to in order to succeed.

3. “Nothing hurts more than trying your absolute best and still not being good enough.” We’ve all probably felt this way. Imagine having to spend twelve hours or even more studying, skipping on family occasions and other social gatherings, forgetting the blithe life you once had when you were not yet an Accountancy student only to find the results were not as rewarding as you expect them to be. They said that when you accomplish something you need to give your 100% best because if you don’t then you’re just wasting your time. We cannot also erase the fact that some students are underachievers and though they can finish school works, they lack initiative and enthusiasm. “Support system is a key to success.” It’s such a big help to be joining in a group of people who could lift you up and boost your confidence, someone who could help you in reaching your goals.

4. “I’m afraid I’m just going to fail myself.” Now, stop it right there. Validation starts from within you. It’s not gonna come from your parents, your professors, your friends or even your classmates; it all comes back at you. You need to believe in yourself, that you are able and capable of so many things. That failure was never an option and if ever once in your life you’d experience failing, think about what Thomas Edison said, “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.” It’s just a temporary setback and setbacks aren’t supposed to affect your future goals.

5. “Pointing fingers cause you’ll never blame yourself.” While there are a number of setbacks in life that can interfere with your plans in succeeding and focus on earning your degree, excuses will get you nowhere. Stop blaming your professors for lacking time in discussing all the lessons, you should’ve known better, stop slacking off saying you need to relax and reward yourself sometimes, rewards are at the receiving end not in the middle, stop complaining and challenge your excuses.

Castle – Halsey 

​This year has been a very rough ride towards flawlessness. I couldn’t even perfectly describe how this year went through. With all the misfortunes and misadventures I’ve been, this year has been overwhelming. I failed in class, I lost a friend, I lost the chance to run for a position in an academic organization I was eyeing ever since I was in high school, I disappointed my parents and my professors who knew me for my father; everything was a mess. I overthink a lot, I miss sleep most of the time; I panic and lose myself in the process. I thought I was doing just fine but I wasn’t. Somebody told me I should have a journal. They didn’t know me well. 

On the other side, I was a little bit glad how I slowly recovered from my mishaps. I appreciate those people who has been consistent since day one, those people who stood up for me throughout my battle. They never needed to know what happened in detail but they were there, always. Even when others looked down on me, they were proud of me, they never doubted me. And so, maybe, my 2016 wasn’t bad at all. I thank God for blessing me a family and a circle of friends who adore and support me no matter what. They’re one of the many reasons that’s making me stay, making every single thing in life bearable. I just hope 2017 would be less offensive. Kidding. I’m still looking forward to what’s in store for me, to better things. 

Breathe – He Is We

​I never dreamt of taking all the credit that’s for me because I know to whom the credit is due. But it sometimes sucks having the need to be great, no, to be the best. Sometimes I wished I had a different family name then, only then my professors would never compare me with my father. I think it’s only unfair that they’re seeing me through my father. If I did well at exams, they’d tell me “Kaya ka naman pala magaling kasi tatay mo siya”. And if I failed they’d say “Para kang hindi tatay mo. Ang galing galing kaya ng tatay mo”. I’m tired, exhausted, and I just want to lay down every day. I just want to rest like I’ve been working all day. Because honestly, it’s been hell having to hear these comments. Lately I’ve been accepting, accepting, accepting, accepting and accepting more disapproval from my professors, from most people. Why can’t I be different with my parents? It’s like every waking day of my life; I have to prove them wrong. Sometimes I wished I wasn’t even born at all for always disappointing my parents. I don’t want to be somebody else’s daughter because I feel lucky to have them as my parents but I keep on becoming a burden to them and I don’t want that. They aren’t even seeing how I’m struggling everyday having to face my professors with so much expectation ahead of me. Maybe that’s one of the many reasons I didn’t even consider studying in PUP. I just didn’t want to be comparing to them. Is that too much to ask?
