Cringe-worthy Memories, you are the BEST.

Today started out quite well. I told myself that starting tomorrow (because I am a procrastinator) that I would get my sh..stuff together, I would create schedules, I would get my body clock running right and have a healthy, balanced lifestyle. It’s something I wanted to do ages ago, but because I am lazy as well (perfect combination huh, procrastinator and a lazy bum, well well) I have’t done it. So I noticed that I do feel like my life lately has been a series of blurred scenes, that’s when I wanted to get my act together. I’m addicted – highly addicted – to watching TV series (I watch 2 seasons in one night, that’s how serious it is) and I sleep at 8AM, which is when other people get up. I don’t know, but it feels so boring to have a routinely schedule of when you have to wake up, go to school or work, do something other than school or work, then sleep. My habit, HOWEVER, has affected my attention in class, how I feel about myself, and how I interact with others (whenever I DO go out because, duh, I’m in my room all day and night – TV series).

Oops. Off-topic, jeez. Ok, back to what I WANTED to share. I went out today to get my *drum roll* ARCTIC MONKEYS SHIRT. FINALLY, it arrived. I was extremely excited about it. Then as I was walking back to the dorm, I realised my mom asked me to check my bank account because she sent my budget for the next two to three weeks again. Afterwards, I had a sudden craving for a coffee from this really hipster, cool, and friendly coffee shop (which I’m not going to name because..well, wait for the rest of the story).

So there I was getting a flat white – and the barista was quite cute too – and I was completely aware of that. When I was about to pay, there were two other guys behind me waiting for their turn to pay for their drinks. Damn they were cute too. So, surrounded by these cute and really attractive guys, the barista (with his accent) was asking me about something. Here’s the really funny part, I DID NOT UNDERSTAND WHAT HE SAID. And so I asked him to repeat it, but even as he repeated the words, I DID NOT UNDERSTAND IT THE SECOND TIME AROUND. It was so embarrassing because as he gave me my change back he was kind of holding his laughter. Which I kind of laughed as well because why the hell not, you looked stupid anyhow. HAHAHA, so yeah. Oh God I hope I don’t see those guys EVER again.

It was so cringe-worthy that as I was walking back home, I kept cringing and half smiling and thinking to myself what he was asking me! DEAR LORD I NEED TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT MY STUPIDITY. HAHAHAHA

So yeah that’s it. So if you thought something happened to you today, just remember to laugh at yourself in the end. Nothing you could do about it anymore anyway. HAHAHAHA, no but seriously, I want to lock myself up for being so stupid earlier.

So without further ado, I leave you with State Champs’ Critical:


Having friends who are [dot][dot][dot]

Since the third week of June, I’ve been going out and hanging out with different group of friends. I only have less than two months here in the Philippines, which is why my mom lets me go to places.

It’s really amazing that I have different group of friends but they are really similar with each other. And it’s really amazing that I get to balance out and spend time with each of them.

I like how my friends are the type of people whom you can really talk with – when hanging out I mean. We don’t get distracted by smartphones, or androids, or iPhones. I like how they can be funny and comedic instantaneously as if they’ve been doing it for a living. It’s pretty amazing that we can talk for hours and hours and we do not seem to run out of things to share or things to remember, OR, we can just sit there drink beer or coffee or tea and just listen to music. There’s just no pressure.

I’m so grateful that I have friends whom I have special moments with, inside jokes, and even a theme song with. I’m so grateful that I have friends that I can act foolish with, whether I am in a good mood or bad, whether I am a mess or not, they accept the fact that I am how I am.

I consider myself really lucky to have friends that understands you and can even tell when you are craving for an Iced White Mocha Americano – on the rocks, half and half.

So cheers to those friends that stood by your side through sunshine and storms. Cheers to those who have shared almost 12 years with you. Cheers to those you don’t see often but you never seem to miss out on anything. Cheers to those who can appreciate a good conversation with you rather than check their phones every single minute. Cheers to those you go to concerts with or discuss and exchange really good books!

Cheers to the kind of friendship that only grows with time.
