Thankful on Independence Day

First of all, Happy Independence Day. Aside from the historical definition of it, it also means three things to me: (1) Freedom from corporate work because it is a weekend. Even just for a day; (2) Freedom from hamper of dirty clothes. Today is the perfect day to do the laundry; (3) And finally, the freedom to get away from it all. I’m staying in my bedroom the whole day. Game Of Thrones marathon it is.

So guys, how did you waste your life today? Holiday on a Sunday, eh?

A Page of Good Thoughts

 

16

  1. After years of waiting, I finally got the necklace last Saturday that mom told me about.
  2. Pre-valentine’s movie-ice cream-pizza-junk food-kinda date.
  3. Letting myself load up on junk food and sweets last Sunday afternoon after doing the chores and while my dearest wasn’t around. My future six pack abs will have to wait a little longer.
  4. Not caring about  my diet or getting fat no matter how often I eat chocos and ice cream. Well, not worried at all. 😉
  5. Quick summer getaways with my favorite group of friends. Refreshing.
  6. A little rain during the night.
  7. Misunderstandings with friends which resulted in new beginnings and stronger relationships.
  8. A new game app to play with.
  9. Learning to appreciate and love my job despite the heavy workload. I guess it’s the people and free food (sometimes). Hah.
  10. My sweet Seth who greeted me during Valentine’s day and told me how much he misses me.
  11. Munching on 2 buns of pan de ube for a midnight snack.
  12. A glass of ice cold water and ice cream.
  13. Movie marathons before hittin’ the sack.
  14. Sleeping for more than 7 hours before the clock ticks 5:30am on a Monday. Ahhh, sleep’s indeed a luxury for me.

 

OhwhyHELLo

You wake to find love crushed at your doorstep. As if overnight someone had tried to slip it under but it was too big, too unfamiliar to fit in your chest.
The earth shakes and all the cities under your skin are falling. And no one is around to hear it. Are you still broken if nobody witnessed your collapse? So you carry it with you.

All this crushed love, these quivers of excrutiating pain. And they never tell you how hard it is to lose love in people. How at night you can still feel your heart tugging towards them.

Where Do I Go

Where do I go?
When I’m feeling so lost and I don’t want to be found.
When I’m looking and listening for that peace in my heart.
But I know I’ll never hear that sound.
Where do I go?
Where do I go when I’m trying to laugh but all I can do is cry?
I’m trying to keep on living because I’m not ready to die.
Where do I go because the sun never seems to shine?
Can you give me my life back, it’s not yours, it’s mine?
How do I keep going, how do I fight this fight?
I’m tired of feeling beat down, but I’m trying with all my might!
Where do I go when my head hangs so low?
Please give me an answer because I just don’t know!
Where do I go?
Does it take very long?
For me to find that peace and a place where I belong.
I need you to help me, help me to take a stand.
I’m scared to do it by myself, will you please take my hand?
Where do I go? Where do I go? Where do I go?
Do you know?
