MY2012

2012. The year I realized the difference between falling in LOve and failing in LOve. And how the first should always start with self-LOve, because lack of it will always lead you to the second. I fell in LOve with somebody. But I failed in LOve with them. All because I refused to rise in LOve with myself.

Happy 2013!

Here is to wishing self-LOve to all you lovelies.

#BestMemories2012 [Part 2]

Tito Jhun @ 43 & Niece Patricia Kirsten @ 1 Birthday Bash

  • One of the happiest birthday celebration ever! Hahaha, ang swerte lang nung kaisa-isa naming pamangkin na kasabay niya magbirthday ang tito ko. Circus ang theme ng birthday nila, mula lobby ng convention may mga inflatable rides, sa mga plenary naman mga arcade games. Sobrang daming give aways, prices at foods. Para bang Enchanted Kingdom yung birthday nila sa sobrang tao. Sana mas maganda pa ang celbration this year. :)

TulAwit 2012 (Buwan ng Wika)

  • Ang pinakamasayang moment para sa aming Bernoulli. Ito yung unang beses na nag-success kami sa isang contest. Yung mga unang months kasi ng school year parati kaming talo or ‘di nakakasali dahil walang cooperation. Pero eto the best talaga! From the start sinabi namin sa sarili namin na walang mage-expect ng kahit ano. And yun nga, 'di namin inexpect na kami ang magcha-champion. :D Walang nasayang na pagod, puyat at pangingitim namin. Haha! Ang pinakamasaya pa, naaperform kami sa Riverbanks para sa isang play. Something to be proud of right? :)
Book Parade 2012, The Iliad and The Odyssey

  • My first time to have a lead role in a book parade. I portrayed the character of Queen Hecabe, King Priam’s wife. Kahit na 'di ako gaanong familiar sa book na 'to maayos ko naman nagampanan ang role ko. Nakakatuwa din na nakakuha na naman and section namin ng awards for this. :-)
Field Trip 2012, Senior Year

  • The best and last field trip ever. Sobrang na-appreciate ko talaga dahil mountain trekking ang ginawa namin. First time ko mamundok nun at ang ganda pa ng mga pinuntahan namin; Mt. Samat, Dambana ng Kagitingan, at Subic Forest. Sana kahit 'di fieldtrip makabalik ulit ako sa mga lugar na 'to someday. :-)
Christmas Party 2012, Senior Year

  • Last Christmas party as a High School Student. Hindi kami prepared for this kaya walang masyadong ganap sa amin non kundi exchange gift lang. But still masaya dahil umalis din kami that day. Gumala kami sa SM North at Trinoma, at iyon at ang first time kong gala na pinayagan ako ng Tita ko ng walang halong galit. Hahahaha!
Rivera’s Christmas Party 2012

  • As usual party again with relatives and Rivera’s catering people. Madaming tao, programs, raffles, at contest. Ang swerte lang ng mga taong nagtatrabaho sa Tito ko dahil halos lahat binigyan niya ng pamasko. Literal pang umulan ng pera. Haha! Sobrang happy ko this time dahil kumpleto na naman ang family ko. <3
New Year’s Evening Celebration 2012

  • Nung 30 pa lang nagcelebrate na agad kami nila Papa at Mama, pumunta kami ng SM North at Trinoma, ayun masaya gala-gala at shopping na din. :) Tapos nakapanuod pa kami ng Fireworks display sobrang saya dahil ang ganda ganda panuorin habang kasama ko sila Mama at Papa. <3 Dec. 31 naman andito na din yung kambal ko. Nagprepared na din sa pagsalubong ng New Year. 'Di man kami kumpleto masaya na din, daming foods hanggang madaling araw kumakain kami. Hahahaha! Konti lang din paputok namin dahil ayaw namin kasi nga mahal at delikado na. Isa rin sa bumuo ng year end ko si *toot* na nagbigay nung gift. :bd
My 2012

2012 was full of amazing things. From laughter to tears. I’ve learned from mistakes, from my friends. It felt like a good year, but not the best. There were ups and downs, it was a roller coaster. I finally got off that roller coaster, but I’m on a new one now. There will be more to come. 

I ended 2012 and began a new year. I got accepted to the school of my dreams. Graduated JHS Class of 2012 and began HS Class of 2016. Through these days and months of 2012, I struggled a lot from crushes to family problems. I’ve lost friends and made new ones. I lost a one close friend to a bitch. I went through so much pain in JHS. From being called a bitch to a slut and even being called fake. I’m not perfect and honestly this caused me pain emotionally and I did things I’d never thought I’d do. Bullying does a lot to one person. Besides losing friends. I made new ones. 

In 2012, I thought I wouldn’t fall for any guy, but when I got to high school I did. I fell for a jerk. I thought he was chill and everything, but I guess not. I spend my time waiting for him to go online so I can talk to him. In the beginning I thought I would never fall for him, but I did. It was a big mistake. Sometimes I cry because of him. I chat him and we only say hi and then he tells me he has to go, and when I text him, he never replies. I always feel like an idiot for even talking to him first. The only time he chats me is when he needs homework. Wow, just wow. I thought that we could actually have a convo without talking about homework. I was going to ask him out or tell him I like him, but nevermind. I think its time for me to give up on him. 

Throughout 2012, I realized a lot of things, one thing I realized is that my true friends will always be there for me like these: Sabrina: What would I do without her, she’s my talking diary, my doctor, my shoulder to cry on, my sister, my lifesaver, and my other half. She was there for me when almost everyone had left me. We do the craziest shit together. Now everything is different. We go to different highschools but everything is almost perfect. Where would I be with out her? Love you! Kellie: This girl is amazing. I can tell her anything. She helps me out like I help her out. She’s my other sister. We go through the same shit and share the same experiences. We may not be in the same classes but we have the same lunch period where all the time is ours and no teachers can interupt. I love you. Jason: He’s my older brother. We met through prep school. I can tell him anything. We went through the same struggles in prep school and that’s how we became close and now he’s like the older brother I never had. We don’t go to the same school, but we talk not everyday but maybe a few times a week. He’s the best brother anyone can have. He helps me with all my problems. Makes me laugh when I’m sad. I love him as a brother. No one can replace him as a better older brother. Reema: I met her this fall. We were totally stranger, but then we started talking and now we are like magnets. We sit together during lunch and talk about things. I love her. She’s one of those people I can never forget from high school. We may not have class together, but we are lunch buddies. 

I hope 2013 will be better. 2012 is the past and I need to learn how drop my past and focus on the present. I hope to learn new things, and forget the bad ones. I want this year to be full of laughter and happiness, and less tears. 2013, please don’t be a bitch to me.

My Cousin Patrick’s Wedding [01-20-12]

  • Sa buong talambuhay ko ata, ito na ang pinaka-magarbo na kasala na nakita ko. As in lahat ang ganda. From Simbahan to Reception. Lahat pinaghandaan at talagang pinagkagastusan. Good thing we have a Tito owning a Catering Services. :-)

JS PROM 2012 (Junior year)

  • My first and last Prom in Malabon Natl. H/S. A very wonderful night to remember, had a lot of dances with some unexpected guys. Hahahahaha. Masaya kaso ‘di ko gaano na-appreciate kasi 'di ako mahilig pumarty. Ang pinakana-enjoy ko lang talaga dito yung sumayaw ang buong section namin ng Moves like Jagger nung madalim. Eh 'di walang hiya! :bd

Field Demo/Farewell party, Junior Year

  • My last day in Malabon Natl. H/S as a Junior student. A sad moment yeat the happiest 'cause I’ll be a Senior next school year in a new school. Naalala ko yung sayaw namin nito na Japanese Parasol ay isang malaking kahihiyan! Dahil yung tugtog 'di sumabay sa sayaw namin. Hahahaha, nakaka-miss tuloy yung mga dating kong kaklase at schoolmates. :-(

Mahal na Araw [Good Friday]

  • Since maaga ako pumunta dito sa Marikina nun, dito na rin kami nag Mahal na Araw. Every year din naman kami sumasama sa ganto dahil may poon kami, St. Veronica at yung bago naming Last Supper. :-) Nakakapagod talaga 'to pero kulang pa 'to compared sa sacrifice ni God sa atin. ^^

Cafe Flora’s Grand Opening [04-23-12]

  • My Tito Jhun’s first Branch of Eat-All-You Can. Cafe Flora is at Marikina Hotel’s 2nd floor, try niyo din sa Rikland Cafeteria sa Antipolo at Renaissance Cafeteria sa Riverbanks lalo na yung mga taga Marikina diyan. :-)

Alabang Town Center Tumblr Meet Up 2012

  • Ang first Tumblr Meet Up na na-attendan ko since nagTumblr nung 2009. It was an unforgettable experience for me kasi nagkaroon ako ng chance na maka-meet ng Tumblr friends/bloggers. Sana this year maka-attend pa ako ng Meet Ups. :)

Induction Ball/Welcome Party 2012

  • First party I encountered for this school year. Dito ko lang 'to na-experience kasi wala namang ganito sa MNHS, ito yung party na iwe-welcome yung mga 7th graders then magkakaroon kami ng ka-buddy na 7th grader na iga-guide namin for their first year in high school. Awesome experience kasi nagkaroon ako ng chance na maka-meet ng ibang year level. ;-)
