Carpe Diem

I can’t remember the last time I wrote an entry here. I missed writing. I needed an outlet, hence this entry.

I’ve been having a hard these past few days. And to be honest, though it seems that I am able to cope up with these things, it’s been very hard for me. I had to adjust to new things. I was also left hanging by a thread. I didn’t know if I had to say goodbye or to just hold on which makes it harder for me. I’m not good at goodbyes. I hate goodbyes. Also, I really don’t want to say goodbye. It’s hard to wake one day it was gone. But what choice do I have? The feeling to be told upfront that one was unhappy with you is unimaginable. But despite all these, I believe that everything happens for a reason. Or I guess that’s what I like to believe. Well, I can only hope for the best.

Love,

Iya


I would like to greet these two gentlemen a happy father’s day. Pa, Lo, thank you for all that you have done for us. We love you! May God continue to bless the both of you. 👨👨

This one was unexpected. Supposedly, it was only my sister and I who’d take a picture like this. But my father insisted to join us. It was kind of a rare photo and moment for us since we are all busy with our own “businesses”.

Sweating it out. Hehe. Planking with Shean. Late night workout at Terra 28.

You are a thing not given much thought. A minuscule event that bothered a not-so important day. An unexpected reply from a meaningless chatter.

Conventional thinking led to wishfulness, and you began to mean a little bit more:

You were an anticipated text in the middle of the night. A boisterous laugh that pleads to be heard. A movie that has to be seen. A clammy hand to hold.

Ha! Since I’ve been MIA for a few days (well maybe a few weeks) and I also have nothing to do, I decided to do a makeover on my blog. New theme/layout and contents. Sometimes change is good. Hihi. 

PS. Sana hindi ako tamarin. Hahaha. Charot.
