Appreciation post.

Yes, I shouldn’t have to thank them on a special holiday, but I do try to remind them from time to time that I appreciate having them in my life weather if I just met them or if I’ve known them for quite some time. I apologize if I don’t mention you, but please don’t feel as if I don’t appreciate you. I do, it’s just, I perhaps don’t have much to say. Everyone’s a blessing in my life and I hope they know that, especially these people I’m going to personally write my thoughts out for. I do remind people that they’re a blessing in my life day by day, so it’s not just today that I’m reminding them how special they are to me.

So, the first appreciation shout out goes to my family. I will always put my family first regardless if we’re close or not. They do say that blood run thicker than water and it definitely does. I will always appreciate my parents who give me a home to live in, to shelter me, to push me further in life, to provide me clothes and raising me right. I appreciate my parents for working their ass off for me and trying to make me happy even if it means to nag me or lecture me about things, it just shows they care. I appreciate my siblings who try what they can for me. I appreciate that even though we may not be as close, that I still have them in my life because they’re able to take me to places since I’m not able to drive. I appreciate that they’re around because they have taught me a lot growing up. I learned from them and I just really am thankful to have such a beautiful family. Yes, I’ll let them know that I’m thankful for them rather than just saying it here. It’s just easier written than for me to eloquently say it to them face to face.

Kathy (@chinkbreezy): Kathy, Kathy. Where do I begin with you? You’ve been by my side since day one. To be honest, I wouldn’t have ever thought our friendship would be as strong as it is now. I know I’m always skeptical with people, but you, Aisha, and Kuya Jay are the few people that I can never doubt no matter what happens. You’re amazing to me and I hope you know that you definitely have impacted my life greatly. I’m thankful that you’re in my life. Thank you for sticking with me through thick and thin. Thank you for always listening to me even though you’re tired or going through something, but still manage to listen to me regardless. Thank you for being you. Thank you for being a blessing in my life and I really hope that we’ll have many more years of friendship to come. Thank you for always giving me a reminder to be strong and that things will be okay again. Thank you for always waking me up even though I tend to fall back asleep, it shows at least you tried. Thank you for the little laughter to the biggest smiles you’ve given me since the time we’ve been friends. You’re like an older sister to me and I really like that. I like our bond and I like how we’re comfortable with each other to tell each other anything. We really do think alike and it normally always makes me laugh when we do say the same thing or think the same thing. I’m just really thankful for you, okay? I could write more and more, but you know I’ll just stop here. Just know that I love you and I appreciate you a lot more than you can ever imagine.

Aisha (@aisheritaaa): Hi, Aisha! :3. I know we don’t talk as much as we used to because you’re so busy with everything lately, but it’s alright. I’m pretty sure everyone understands that. I’m really grateful to have you in my life because honestly, you were also one of the few that I didn’t think I would grow so close to. You’re a really lovely person and I hope you know that. Thank you for listening to me and always accepting me as a person. It’s really rare to find someone who’s willing to listen to you and not judge you for whatever you’re venting about. I know I’m not there for you enough, but I really hope I can be when you need someone to vent to. Thank you for just being in my life and thank you for putting up with me. Thank for being just a great person. I love you as much as I love Kathy no matter what happens between us even if we drift. I know in the end, we’ll all have each other’s back. Remember, Forever and a Day. So, I’ll always have your back no matter what, okay? :3.

Kuya Jay (@becauseimjay): KUYA JAY, HI. I believe we’ve known each other a lot longer than a lot of the people I’ve met on here or ever encountered. You have no idea how blessed I am to have you in my life. I am really happy that I’ve met you. I know you’re stressed out a lot of the time due to school and company, but regardless, I’ll always be one step behind you, supporting you, urging you to push forward, and not to ever give up even if you feel like it’s too much for you. This was my promise to you and I will never break that promise even if we don’t talk for a while. I know that even if we don’t talk for a long period of time, you’re still around. We’re just busy with what we have to do and it’s completely understandable, right? :3. I’m just really glad I’ve come across someone like you because you’re like an older brother to me hence why I call you Kuya. You’re hardworking and a good person. You should never forget that and I know in the end, you’ll become a successful person. I’m really glad I can also be someone you can count on for support and to push you forward. You’re amazing and I’m just really glad that I can call you my Kuya. You’ve been there for me and still have been. Thank you for everything and more to come.

Sean (@seanpou): Hai, Sean. I’m really glad to have met someone like you. I know we barely started talking again like a few weeks ago, but it’s amazing how a friendship can grow so quickly, huh? Thank you for walking in my life and thank you for being such a beautiful blessing in my life. Thank you for listening to my mini-vents from here and there when I randomly vent to you. Thank you for being so sweet and nice to me even though you’re such a thug at times. Thank you for making me laugh and smile like a lot. Thank you for being you because I’m glad you’re in this world. I’m glad that out of a billion, trillion people, I ended up meeting someone like you. I just really hope we do remain friends for a long time because it is nice to have someone like you in my life. Someone who pushes me to do better in school and believe in me which is what I really need to motivate myself to do better. Someone who can relate to a lot of aspect of my life and can understand where I’m coming from. I know this may not mean much to you, but it means a lot to me to know that I’ve met someone who is willing to try to stay around for as long as they can. I will continue to get to know you and discover a beautiful friendship from this all, :3. Okay? Okay! Yeah, I just answered myself, but yeah. LOL, I repeat myself a lot. Sorry, anyway, I’m just really glad that you’re around because it just means a whole lot to me. It was also really nice seeing you at Fall Rally for like a split three to five minutes, but still! It was worth it and you give really good hugs, o-o. Random, but yeah. Okay, my point is that I really appreciate you and thank you for being a part of my life. ~

Tammy (@jigokudo): Tamtam! I definitely have to do one for you. We are going to meet one day soon and go to Disneyland, right? Okay, yes we are. Thank you for always being there for me and caring for me. Thank you for helping me with my homework and accepting my retarded moments. LOL. You are an extraordinary person and even though you may not agree with me, I would know because I’m slowly getting to know you. You are wonderful in all that you can be and you deserve so much more than you can imagine. Thank you for always sending me little message to remind me that I actually matter to you. Thank you for being selfless and always putting others first before yourself. I hope you do know that you are a blessing in my life no matter what you say. Don’t disagree with it and just agree with it, okay? You’re a beautiful person inside and out. Even though you can’t see that, I can and so does a lot of other people. Just, thank you for being in my life and for making a difference. You deserve to be happy. So, please don’t think that I’ll ever forget you because hell, I know I won’t.

Stephyboo (@stephsy): Hi, Stephyboo. I saw you at Fall Rally and hung out with you. It been what? Almost a year since I last saw you? LOL, but I’m really glad we were able to see each other and catch up. Thank you for being in my life for the longest. I guess that’s why we’re best friends, right? :3. You did end up proving to me that even though we may never talk as much as we used to, you’re still around. You never left and I appreciate that. Out of everyone, I can genuinely say you’ve stood by my side the longest even though we can go for months without talking. I find our friendship rare because even though we can go for that long without talking, I still manage myself being comfortable around you. I still find myself being able to vent to you and our trust being the same. So, thank you for proving to me that there are people in this world who never breaks their promises or words. You are incredible and when I say that, I mean it with all my heart. Especially you because you’re my best friend and you know me more than anyone else. You really do. You can read me better than anyone and I find that quite shocking because nobody can read me as well as you. So, thank you for being alive and for being by my side. It means so much to me, a lot more than you can ever imagine. Ouhlivejew. :3. You’re the only person who I spell ouhlivejew like that for, you know that? Yeah, now you do, heh.

Max (@justsomefoodforthought): MAX. HI. I know it’s random how you’re in my appreciation post and we’re actually not all that close, but still. I’d like to take the time to appreciate you. You’ve made a difference in my life by being yourself and being silly. If people actually took the time to get to know you, they would realized how lucky they are to have someone like you in their life. Or at least I know I am lucky to have someone like you in my life. You’re so selfless and giving, it’s hard to imagine finding someone like that. You’re always there for others and I think that’s what also makes you so amazing. I hope you know that no matter what happens or how you’re feeling that there are a lot of people who actually appreciates you more than you know it. You’re hilarious and sweet. What is there not to love about that? So, thank you. Thank you for walking in my life even though it was quite unexpected because I encountered you at the SMP meet up, randomly capturing pictures of everyone. LOL. Still, I’m glad to have met you because you’re a blessing. I’m glad that you’re here and alive. I really am. So, please don’t ever doubt my words. ^^. Yeah, I still owe you KBBQ and Pho. I won’t forget that either ~

Rae (@iraezr): RAE, you penis. LOL, jkjk. Don’t kill me. I just want to say that you are a sweetheart. You definitely are. You’re always there for me and I’m glad I can be there for you as well even though you are busy at times. That’s understandable. I know we’ve only hung out like a few times, but still, I think you’re cute and wonderful. Thank you for never judging me and keeping my secrets safe and sound when I tell you things. It means a lot to me more than you can imagine. I think my life would be off without you in it. As corny as it sounds, it’s true. I can’t imagine not giving Rae massages when she needs them. I can’t imagine not picking on you by calling you penis, LOL. FDSJLKFDJSLKFDJS; hi. Anyway, I know you’ll get far in life because you’re such a beautiful person although you are picky with love. Ahem, AHEM. Yeah, anyway. Thank you. Thank you for being a part of my life and walking in. Thank you for always making me comfortable and being here for me even though you may reply slow and say it’s a “Guam thing.” Loser, :3. Yeah, I’m just really grateful you and I love you lots, okay? I miss you too, by the way. We need to really hang out more, k? K.

Michelle (@moomooshalle): Michelle, don’t think I’ve forgotten you. You’re one of the few who have stood with me the longest and I think it’s rare to find someone like that. I’m sorry for always neglecting you when I have so much homework to do or school work to worry about. I appreciate that you’re still here for me even after I’ve done all that to you. I appreciate that you still stick with me even though you know I really dislike clingy people. I don’t know how you handle all the mean shit I’ve done to you, but regardless I’m thankful for you. Thank you for always helping me with my Korean homework and pulling through with it even though you had other shit to do. You are a blessing even if you don’t believe it. I’m grateful to have met you because even though I don’t talk to you for a long period of time, you never fail to still ask how I’m doing or to just tell me to have a nice day. Thank you for always being by my side even though we had our bad times, at least we’ve overcome it and now we have a friendship that have grown a lot stronger. I’m glad you’re in my life even though I don’t show it to you enough, I really am, okay? And remember that you’re a lot stronger than you can ever imagine.

TC Fam (Justin @justinrecio, Mikey @mikeyavila, Danny @dannyhiga who is no longer active on Tumblr, Ben @benwhuzhere, Rob @r0b0h, Viet @choreocookiesz, Blaine @blaineblogs, Kam @-kam0lester, Elaine @e2k8, Victor @vlha, including Kathy @chinkbreezy, Jay @becauseimjay, and Aisha @aisheritaaa which I mentioned aboved. I hope I’m not missing anyone, if I am, I apologize!): HI, GUISE. I MISS YOU ALL. WE HAVEN’T ALL TC IN THE LONGEST AND I THINK WE SHOULD SOON WHEN EVERYONE ISN’T BUSY, OKAY? Yeah, I hope you guys read that in a yelling voice. I want you guys to know that you guys are the best people in my life that ever exist. I am not lying either because without you guys around, I don’t think I would be where I’m at. The laughter, the smiles, and the tears, you guys stood with me through it all even though there are times when things kind of got out of bound between a few people. Regardless, I’m grateful to have met all of you guys. You guys have made my life a better place and have always made me felt blessed to have you guys in my life. I really hope we reunite soon, okay? Please have a good one and gobble lots of food. You guys are beautiful to me and will always be. Don’t ever forget that. I really love how we have each other’s back no matter what happens. You guys are my family and have become a part of me. I just hope that you guys are doing alright for those who hardly TC with us anymore. I just want to say that I really appreciate you all because, well… You guys have made one of the biggest difference in my life and I’ve created a lot of memories with you guys. It’s incredible, really. So, once again, thank you. Thank you for being there for me and creating this beautiful family. ^____^;;.

And last of all, HAPPY GOBBLING DAY, EVERYONE! I hope you really read what I wrote for you because it came from my heart and I genuinely meant it all. Have a good one and take care of yourself. I appreciate every single one of you and even if I didn’t mention the people in here, don’t think I don’t appreciate you. I do. :3. Just have a good Thanksgiving day and remember to always be grateful for what you have and who really matters. ~

P.S. I know that today isn’t the only day to give thanks, but I’d like to give a lot more sincerity to people I know I remind them that they’re a blessing in my life. I’d like to give them more of a reason why they are rather than to just simply tell them they’re a blessing in my life like every other day.

Dear Kuya Jay,

Hihi, Kuya :3. You’re 21 now, you old-fart. Sorry this wasn’t made exactly at the strike of midnight, your time or my time. I guess I was too busy absorbing knowledge about sex-related stuff. Yeah. Hai :3. Anyway, it’s your birthday and I really do want you to have an amazing time today. You’re always working hard and never leaving yourself space to relax. Please, please relax today and do something fun. It always makes me sad that you never have time for yourself anymore. So, I really want you to know that you deserve to be happy. I know this more than anything because you really do. You’re amazing, you put others before yourself, you’re always willing to be there for someone even when you’re tired and busy, and so much more. You always have to remember your self-worth, okay?

Anyway, this is suppose to be about your birthday and you. So, I want to say that it’s an incredible blessing to have you in my life. You’re always there for me when I need someone to vent to and I’ve known you a lot longer than most people. You know a lot about me more than a lot of people and I’m truly grateful that you’re always around even when you’re busy or when we stop talking for a certain amount of time. You’re a genuine person and it shows because you’re you and you actually stick by your words. I’m really glad that you’re my Kuya. You have taught me a lot and to actually learn to be patient and acknowledge that I’m really blessed with people like you in my life. You’ve watched me grow from freshman year up to now and I think it’s amazing that you’ve actually still stood by my side.

So for that and all this, I want to say thank you. Thank you for walking in my life and being a beautiful human being. Sorry if a lot of things seem repeating, but I really do mean all this from my heart. I do look forward to actually being able to meet you one day face-to-face, perhaps with TC Fam :3. I still remember a few list of things we have to do when we meet though! Don’t forget that you have to enjoy yourself and be happy, okay? Your happiness comes first, but you’re always putting others first, so today put yourself first, okay? Okay. I love you lots and I just want to say that I know this isn’t much, but one day when you come to Cali, that’s when things are going to change ~

Yeah, anyway. My point is that I wish you a wonderful one and I hope you enjoy yourself on your twenty-first birthday. You’re legal to buy alcohol now, so now go drink! Just kidding, please don’t. LOL. Okay, yeah I feel like I ramble too much, so to end this, I’ll say HAPPY BIRTHDAY, KUYA JAY AGAIN! Heh. Remember to keep your head up high and that you’re always so much stronger than you can imagine. I’m always here and I know you know that, so is Kathy. Heh, okay yeah bye <3.

Lily also known as your little sister.
