Bloggers-United

the reason i get so fired up abt “””ace discourse””” is bc im like no u don’t get it LGBT people are my people like we’re all united by similar experiences of homophobia and transphobia and we’ve all had similar struggles in different capacities and situations and we all love a certain way and if you can’t relate to any of that you Don’t Belong!!!! we’re not united by some arbitrary set of rules a mean allogay blogger posted, we’re united by common experience, by the way we interact with the rest of society and with each other

if that gets me branded as a “hatekeeper” or w/e then so be it!!! i don’t want LGBT minors on this hell site to think they’re “privileged” for being “allosexual”. gay boys should not have to welcome people into their own fucking community who think that pictures of them kissing or holding hands should have a trigger warning on it. imagine being told by the whole world that what you feel is wrong, finding what you think is a safe space, and then have the same homophobic bullshit reinforced by people you were told to trust and welcome

i don’t want any LGBT kids to think they should have to share a community with people who have nothing in common with them for the sake of some straight cis person’s feelings just because they don’t get the urge to fuck

i don’t want them to find out about that MOGAI bullshit and think that their attraction is “abnormal” or that they’re somehow similar to or should share resources with kinksters and pedophiles. 😕  anyway i guess that makes me an aphobic bitch but w/e, come @ this dyke if you want to

Muted

I don’t know what the weather feels like where you are, but here in the south area of Manila, it’s damn cold! Especially in the morning wherein you have to brave the cold water in the shower in order to arrive looking (and smelling) human to your morning class. Brrrrrrr! This weather makes me feel gloomy, which is evident to the muted color palette of my outfit. These days are when wearing turtle necks do not permit too much sweating which is very uncommon in a tropical country like here in the PH. So I took the opportunity to wear my gray semi turtle neck top and paired it with a high-waist shorts.

Moving On.

Before I fully get started with this blog post, I would like to express a huge thank you to all of those who have been supporting me whilst i’ve been taking what has essentially been a short hiatus from my blog. Money has been tighter than usual, University harder + much more stressful than what I had originally thought and my relationships have been a bit wonky to say the least. I also appreciate everyone not badgering me about my whereabouts and rather lightly saying that they couldn’t wait to have me back. So seriously, thank you all so very much, you are the reason I enjoy writing on this blog so much.

BLOGGERS UNITED 5!

Hooray! It’s the 3rd one I’ve been to! I didn’t attend the first one because it was kind of stormy that time. I missed BU3 because I went to the beach naman. But as of the three I’ve attended, it’s always been fun and exciting!

Jacob and I went a little later than everyone else to avoid the crazy hogging and shoving that usually happens when the doors of Bloggers United are opened. I hate that I had to miss out on all of the participating bloggers’ clothes and shoes. Waaah! But that saves me from spending so that’s ok. 

I bought a pair of teal H&M shorts for Jacob from Kelly! And I got a velvet Topshop maxi skirt and a coverup! I’m happy with those buys already! 

It was great to see good friends, fellow bloggers and meet new people in BU5! Can’t wait for the next one! I’m thinking of participating!

What It Really Means to be Free | Bloggers United 3

I guess it’s a bit too late to greet everyone a Happy Independence day. In fact, I’m way behind schedule for a lot of posts since I’ve been out of the blogging radar for about 3 weeks now so here’s an Independence Day Nail Art to welcome myself back into the blogging world. It is of course, inspired by the Philippine flag.

I’ve been struggling with a lot of personal problems since the beginning of May and I’ve never felt lonelier. I thought that I could escape them by keeping myself extra-busy. But Instead, I got sick to the point that I had fever as high as 39.5 and I couldn’t find the strength to get out of bed. Proof that stress can indeed lead to sickness! :| Good thing I got well before the Supersale Bazaar & Bloggers United 3. I am very thankful to everyone who dropped by our booth to support us. (Grabbed random photos from the internet because I forgot to take photos! @_@)

All the sleepless nights from doing inventory and hours of standing up and entertaining inquiries was all worth it because I got to meet a lot of new and interesting people and of course, our very special readers! I’ve never experienced having a bazaar for 2 consecutive weeks so that really kept me distracted from the problem that I was trying to divert my attention from. And oh, did I mention, I was supposed to be a bridesmaid for a wedding on the same day as BU3? Obviously… I didn’t go. I love BU THIS much. :))

I’m also glad I made a new found becky friend, JP Singson! His family is such an inspiration to mine because we’ve never seen parents as supportive as his. I’m glad our booths were beside each other at the Supersale Bazaar because I would have gone nuts without a becky by my side for 5 days. I am such a fag hag. Haha!! We also found out that our dads knew each other since the 80’s and are both in the car industry. Small world, huh? XD

(word vomit and drama ahead)

After overcoming the busy week and Bloggers United 3, I realized that running away from a problem doesn’t free you from it. I found myself in an empty room with a heavy heart and a rattled mind. I was back to phase 1 and I had to face whatever I had to deal with prior to all the hulabaloo– I had to face my own emotions.

Earlier this year I talked about moving on with my life despite all the unanswered questions and ‘what ifs’ standing in my way. But one can’t just turn away from these things because they’re meant to be dealt with. Just because I act happy and bubbly all the time doesn’t mean I’m okay. And just because I’m single now doesn’t mean I’m free from the past. In fact, I’ve been living with the past for years now and recent events only made it worse so I found myself breaking down after weeks of pretending to be okay.

I know it wasn’t a wise decision to just go AWOL from blogging but it’s what I needed to get my mind off things. Most of the time I just stayed home and had loads of 'me time’ so I could reflect on my mistakes. I know everything that I’ve been typing here sounds so vague but let’s just say I had to make a choice between reality and morality; the reality of finally getting the answer to my 'what if’ VS my principles in life.

Aaah I sound so senseless but my point is, in order to be free from everything, you must face your problems because you can run all you want but your problems will always run faster than you. There’s also nothing wrong about taking a little time off because it could be your reset button to life. I’m glad I did because I feel much better now than I did a month ago and I’m ready to take on my backlogs which is a list longer than Rapunzel’s hair. Ow em. XD

My advice to those who are also in the process of healing themselves or recovering from a heartbreak or unrequited love: Stop thinking that he’s the one that got away. Instead, think of yourself as the one who got away.. From all of his mind games and drama. Always be the better person and walk away from someone who doesn’t treat you right. Every girl deserves to be loved and no arrogant a*hole is deserving of ours.

xoxo ;) (for the lack of a better ending)

Bloggers United 2

I can’t wait for BLOGGERS UNITED 2!!!! I wasn’t able to go last time because of personal reasons and this time I’m already looking for company just to be there hahaha. Looking forward to meet the owners of the blogs I really love to read! Like David Guison, Lissa Kahayon, Camille Co, Kryz Uy, and many more! Although because of my very shy personality, I’m not that sure if I can approach them lol. So save the date guys! November 3, 2011 at Treston International College. Entrance fee is 100 pesos! I heard that the proceeds will be a help to the GMA Kapuso Foundation so it’s like hitting 2 birds with 1 stone! :)
