Confessions Vol. 1: I Have Never Been to Starbucks

Sunday, July 27, 2014 2 Comments A+ a-

Whenever I tell people that I have never been to Starbucks, I always get that expression of disbelief. Now, that makes me feel like I am such a loser and I think the world thinks it's a crime or something. Hmmm.

Never been there nor tasted anything they have to offer. Okay, I'm not a coffee person to begin with, that's one. Two, I don't feel like I belong there. So why bother? And three, I can already buy at least three pre-loved books at BookSale for a price of one coffee.

There's always the brightside

This day didn't go very well. Seems like everybody and everything that surround me is testing my patience. I lost my cool; one more tic and I'd reach my boiling point. This day simply sucks. I want it to end so soon that I'm already looking forward to working on Monday.

But one message changed everything. Just one simple message from the boyfriend and it brightened my rather gloomy day. It wasn't even cheesy. It's just a simple and casual message. And just by that, I know he's thinking of me.

They said it's always nice to have someone in your life who can make you smile even when they're not around. I wouldn't disagree on that because it is absolutely true.

Now that I think about it, I think about how lucky I am to have that someone. Someone who can make my day no matter how rough it has been. Someone who can make me smile even when he's doing nothing. His thoughtfulness and love trumps all the challenges and whatever sh*t comes my way. Now that I think about it, I know and I am so thankful to be blessed beyond compare.

And oh, look at these yummies! There, there. That's double strafe. Nothing can ever ruin my day. Hahaha :)

An Open Letter to My Soulmate

My lab,

I love the way you look at me, the way you make me laugh, the way you tell me to eat the last grain of rice on my plate, and for letting me eat food I've never tasted before. I love the way you randomly kiss me, the way you squeeze my love handles or massage my back. I love it when it rains because you would hold me very close to you while we share the same umbrella. I love it when you try to fight sleepiness despite being tired from the whole day's work just because you still want to spend more time with me. And yes, I can name more.

These simple gestures you do can sweep me off my feet. How can I not love you when every time I see you my heart melts and I instantly fall for you? I don't think I would ever get tired of falling in love with you over and over and over again.

I see more than the sweet things you do, or your good looks, or your charms when you speak, or the chemistry that we have. You have beautiful eyes but I see beyond that. I see a beautiful and gentle soul with a kind heart, and a dirty, err.. I mean, brilliant mind. Naka-jackpot ko diba? Haha.

Now I think about how I must be favored by the gods or what have I done in life to be given someone like you. I am very thankful you came into my life and became a part of it. I know it's too early to tell this, but I see a person I know I'm willing to spend the rest of my life with.

I just want you to know that I love you. I love you because you deserved to be loved. I love you despite your flaws and I know I am yet to see the worst side of you, still, I love you simply for who you are, what you were and what you will be. I love you just because I love you. It's as simple as that. I love you more today than I did yesterday and I will love you tomorrow more than I do today. And if you think I have loved you more than enough already... allow me to love you just a little bit more.

Your lab

P.S. Lab, I've never known this self before; this side of me that's cheesy. I know we both don't like cheese, but please, make this an exception. Panagsa ra ni. Haha.

World Cup 2014

Thursday, July 10, 2014 0 Comments A+ a-

For the past few weeks I've been going to work lethargic. World Cup is happening, and yes, I'm putting the blame on that. I live in the Asia Pacific where the games are televised live from 12:00 am to 4:00 am. But I don't care. I cannot just let this event that happens only every four years slip away.

Football is my sport, albeit I play a lot of sports. Football is my passion, my first love. And I terribly miss playing football. So I guess that's more than enough reason for me to stay up all night just to relive what I once was even if it is just on TV, even if it means having bigger eye bags and a powerful headache the next day.

It doesn't matter though. Those sleepless nights were replaced with excited screams, mini heart attacks and a thrill to every goal attempt only a football fan knows. And not to mention, you get to see those hot and good looking players in action. Haha.

And the best part is, *drumroll please* two out of the three teams (Spain, Argentina, Germany - in that particular order) that I am rooting for are going to the finals!

The heat is on and the whole world is on fire. While there's only one game left for me to watch, I'm savoring the moment cheering for the team that I will be rooting for in the finals: Argentina. Because I'm gonna miss this feeling when the World Cup fever subsides.

In a few days, the world will be back to their normal lives. I will be back to my normal life.
