Few Hours Before the End

Bago magtapos ang taong ito, nakatagpo ako ng ilang kwento. I didn’t hear it, but I saw it. Hindi ko alam yung buong kwento, pero yung summary, Oo.

May isang family na last minute na nung na-isipang mag-handa para sa New year. Bibili na lang ng isang supot ng bread at margarine para sa palaman. Idagdag pa yung 1/4 kilo lang ng pasta na corned beef lang ang sahog.

Along that scene is the noise children creates using their improvised turbo bombs. At the background of that deafening noise is an old lady waiting for no one in particular. Sabi nya may hinihintay sya, but I doubt that.

For hours, nakaupo lang sya sa harap ng isang shop. Hindi sya mukhang beggar. But she looked old. I also overheard that she have a family, or I just heard it wrong.

I have this urge to give her some food which is yung handa namin for New Year. Hindi ako nice. But I know I have a heart.

Well, aside from that part, may isang nuclear family naman na sa hospital na ice-celebrate ang New year. For the reason na biglang nagkasakit ang 10 month old na baby nila. They are currently on their way to the hospital. I just pray ang hope na magiging okay ang baby nila. God bless them.

Another is this ordinary yet happy family. Extended ang family nila. May handa sila, hindi bongga, pero okay na. Pabalik-balik nga yung isang anak sa tindahan para bumili ng mga condiments and ingredients. He’s my friend, too. So, basically, kilala ko talaga sya.

Enough of that. Let’s move to another scene.

There’s a circle of friends or classmates, I guess? They bought alcoholic drinks at pulutan. Base from what I saw, hindi alam ng mga magulang nila na umiinom sila… at naninigarilyo. I can say that it is the way they welcome the “new year”– rebellious.

Well, I don’t care about that. I know it’s wrong, but it is their life that they choose to manage. I just hope that they choose the right choices.

My story? Well, it’s nothing special. Perhaps, I can state it as just plain ordinary.

We cooked “handa”: spaghetti(my favorite!), pancit, macaroni salad, buko sala, graham balls, barbeque… at hindi ko na alam kung meron pa. And oh! May fruits pa pala. You know the tradition? 12 or so kind of fruits every new year? Tradition na kasi yun eh.

An hour starting at this very moment, mag-iingayan ang bawat bahay. Liliwanag ang natutulog na langit at iingay. Kasi sa point na yung… dumating na si 2016!

 

Sana, sa susunod na taon, magbago naman yung unfortunate deals na nangyari sa mga taong ito. Sana, even if it seems unusual, kahit isang oras o araw lang sa isang taon, maging bloomy sila imbes na gloomy.

Right now, I want to be jolly and party! Yeah boy!

 

Happy New Year to everyone! I’m happy and proud to be loved by God.

Thank You Jesus for everything, good or bad, that had happen during this year. I am looking forward for the years to come.

Dearest 2015

Naalala mo pa? Nung winelcome kita, ang saya ko di ba?

Salamat nung January ha? Dahil sa’yo nabusog ako ng bongga!

May handa kasi ning new year, tapos may trade fair pa! Miss ko na nga yun eh.

Nung February, wala akong ka-date nung Valentines pero masaya pa rin kasi kasama ko ang barkada ko. Last year ko na sa high school eh, kaya sulitin na, dibadibs?

Muntik na ring walang Prom, pero thanked God! Natuloy pa rin sya!

Well, honestly, hindi ko na-trip-an yung dress ko, pero ayos na rin! Di na masama!

March, palapit na ang graduation day. Busy kaming lahat… busy-busyhan. Hahaha.

Practice para Senior’s day at Commencement exercises.

Alam mo bang may tatlo akong medal? Isa ka sa mga naka-witness ng araw na yun.

Graduation Day… late yung bestfriend ko. Hindi nga ako sure kung naka-march sya. Oo ata?

Well, medyo boring, alam mo naman kapag graduation, maraming kaek-ekan. Bssh!

Pagkatapos nun, diretdo kami sa bahay ng bestfriend ko… lamon na!!!

Sarap talagang magluto ng tito nya! Yeeeeiiii!

Miss ko na sila! Miss ko na yung house nila. Haist!

Syempre, balik pa rin kami sa school kasi may aasikasuhin pang clearance, after nun! Bwalah! Bye bye high school na!

Pasado naman ako sa dalawang University na kinuhanan ko ng entrance test, kaso pinili ko yung CL.

Days passed, eto na nga. Pumunta na ako sa lugar na ‘to.

Nabago school year calendar.

Dahil August na ang simula ng classes, apat na buwan ang bakasyon. Alam mo ba kung gaano ka-boring yun? Geez! Syempre hindi mo alam.

 

Well, masaya naman palang mag-college. Nakaka-stress nga lang talaga. I met new friends. Sampu sila actually. They are all awesome and pretty!

Yun nga! First kong mag-term exam. Nagsabayan, nag-fieldtrip. Projects, exams, quizzes and the like.

Pero ganun talaga. Binagyo na’t lahat, tuloy pa rin ang buhay.

Eto, Christmas break-slash-sembreak.

Tapos na nga yung Christmas eh at eto, last day mo na.

Anong feeling? Bukas papalitan ka na ni 2016. Mala Miss Universe ka rin eh. Isang taong ka lang sa trono.

Salamat sa lahat ha? Marami-rami rin akong memories sa’yo. Ingat ka kung saan ka man makakarating.

Tsaka, pakisabi na rin kay 2016, ayusin nya yung trabaho nya para naman maalala sya ng lahat. Yun lang!

Goodbye 2015, hello 2016!!!

“It’s goodbye to some things. And hello to others.”

Damned Too

Alam mo yung pinaka ayaw ko sa lahat? (Do you know what I hate the most?)

Yung titigan ka nila na parang wala kang nagawa… parang wala lang.

(It’s the way they look at you as if you didn’t do anything… like nothing.)

 

Do you know how frustrating that is? Nakakaloka! (It makes me crazy!)

Even if I exert effort to improve myself, they won’t appreciate it. It will never be enough. Aish! I hate it! I totally hate it!

When will we be able to accept that things change. We’re able to chnage. Can’t she just forget about my past bad attitude? I’m trying! Pathetically trying, hoping that she’ll notice it.

Ako ba talaga yung mali? O sya? (Am I really the one who is at fault? Or it’s her?)

Even if I try to understand the situation, I still can’t understand it!!! Why is it like this? Why?

Tss. Whatever.
