Positivity

Dear Virtual Friend,

Today, I had a great chat with Joyce, a really good person. I am really thankful that we had that. I am extremely encouraged. How I wish that I’d have a lot of conversations like this.

Her words still lingers in my mind, and I wanna keep them their forever. She said, “it becomes harder and harder to meet real friends as you grow older” these words somehow explains why I am all by myself right now. But then, as I am typing, I realized how urgent it is for me to find a best friend.

Hmmmm… What to do?

Anyway, my crush recently posted something in her blog. So I kinda falling for her again. How I really wish to meet her and know her and have a great conversation with her.

Vacation With A Friend: Day 3

Dear Virtual Friends,

This is the last day of this trip and I’m kinda sad thinking that we are about to leave tomorrow dawn. However, thinking that I truly enjoyed this is much of a beauty than that negative idea. (Also, I don’t want to spoil everyone with negativity now, do I? )

One thing for sure, trekking in a random place here in the Philippines is absolutely awesome. It is like walking in the midst of the unknown where a lot of stunning creatures await, where a lot of breathtaking sceneries are beautifully arranged as if someone is anticipating a traveler’s pilgrimage.  I am a living witness to this since this is what we just did today, with Peter, Philip and Uncle Remy

We first looked for somebody who can accompany us throughout this unknown. We don’t want to get lost now, do we?

The local has pets. They were adorable kitty cats. I’m more into dogs though.

I wanted to ask the local whether I can bring this home, but I was shy to ask. So cool!!!

Resting is a good thing, especially if you have all day.

Sigh… I will surely miss this. To encourage myself, let’s think that this end is a new chance for me to visit new places. I mean, how can we be prepared for better things if we are not letting go of the old, right? After all, we won’t completely let it go, since we have a lot of photos to look at everytime we miss the place.

Before I end this blog post, I want to thank God for the beauty He has created and for giving me such heart that appreciates every single detail of it. And I want to encourage everyone to have the same kind of mind that appreciates beauty. Now, after all of this, who could say that there is no God? Seriously.

Sometimes, I might be compulsive

Dear Friend,

Right now, I am here with some people who love to mock me. I don’t take it seriously though. I think they mock me in a positive way if that is even possible. Or is the term “mock” not the right word to say. Should I use the word tease, or deride or make fun? Whichever, it’s fine with me since I also laugh at myself every time they do it because they kinda point out the funny side of me.

By the way, I want to blog something about a latest tease they hurl against me. And honestly, this one’s funny.

It all started few weeks ago. If you’re not yet aware, I am a frustrated musician. I do music and I am trying hard to be good at it. That’s not my problem. I mean, everybody starts as a beginner and nothings wrong with that. My problem was this: it was my first time replacing the strings and I’m not so sure what I was doing. Everything seemed to be a mess. It seemed that I broke my guitar. To cut the story short, I ended up giving up and asking for a friend’s help.

So a week later, that is this week, I and my friend went to a couple of guitar repair shops. The first shop offered us too much without even checking up on the instrument. So we looked for another shop. We walked around until finally, we got there. We entered. Their door has chimes on it. After a few seconds. We left. I was so red. My friend doesn’t want to laugh but it is in his face. He didn’t want to offend me. So I joked, “At least I learned”

What happened was such an epic fail. The man on the shop said, “This is normal, nothing’s wrong here.”

The problem was not the guitar, the problem was me, being compulsive, thinking that I broke it already. I won’t blame my friend who didn’t check the guitar first before joining me to the shop. But I would like to blame him for telling it to this person who is teasing me right now.

It is such an epic fail, I’m laughing so hard.

PS. I guess, I should change the title of my blog since I am somehow being socially active these days. I mean, if that would disqualify me from being an introvert, then I guess I should.

PPS. I also want to start sharing this blog on fb. But I guess I should hide some posts first. *wink

 

Your friend,
