Can’t believe iiyak ako. Bigla na lang nag-ring yung bell nung sinabi niyang, “Ganun talaga Jas. Minsan kailangan mo ring maiwan.”

Minsan? Excuse me lang. Lagi niyo na akong iniiwan. For the past days, iba-iba kasabay kong maglunch. Pano naging minsan yun? Lagi. Sanay na yata kayong wala ako!

Big deal pala sakin yun. Akala ko kebs lang. *wink!* Umagos luha ko pero di ko pinigil kahit nasa gitna kami ng Starmall. Wala e. Kailangan kong mag-inarte.

Ang drama. HAHA True friend ko nga sila, kasi keri kong magdrama sa kanila at maglabas ng tampo kung nagtatampo man! Hahahayey!

ThanksLabyuAll

Male-late na ako. Saan ako sasakay?

J: Dito ka na. Saglit lang naman byahe. Maghintay ka lang konti.

T: Sakin ka na, lalo kung nagmamadali ka. Kaya kong bilisan para sayo.

J: Mapapamahal ka lang dyan. Late ka rin naman na e di magtipid ka na lang.

T: Halika na dito. Mag-special ka na. Special ka naman sakin e.

J: Hay naku. Lalakad na, o, lalakad na. Halika na. Punuin lang natin to. Makakatipid ka pa.

T: Ikaw rin. Ang akin lang, ayokong ma-late ka. Ikaw.

J: Larga na, larga na. Ikaw na lang hinihintay. Mag-decide ka na.

T: Miss, baka maunahan ka pa ng iba. Ikaw rin.

Day Six: A Character-Building Experience

Today’s Prompt: Who’s the most interesting person (or people) you’ve met this year?

I’ve known this person since high school, but just this year, I realized how interesting he is!

jassy delights

I never had a guy friend as close as this one. We talk about anything and everything under the sun. We spend more time together than we do with our other friends. I share him my thoughts, he affirms me, and I smile. He appreciates me and I thank him. And oh, he rebukes my thoughts, too, if necessary, and his words get me to rethink my views and opinions on things.

What makes a girl beautiful

Would you rather be a girl who is beautiful but not intelligent or a girl who is intelligent but not beautiful? (For the boys, would you rather be with a girl who is beautiful but not intelligent or with a girl who is intelligent but not beautiful?)

Woah, admit it. It’s a tough question. Not that we can’t really have it both, but what if we would be asked to choose just one – be beautiful or be intelligent? To be honest, I can’t answer it now. Thankfully, the Bible says that I am wonderfully and fearfully made, and that qualifies me as a beautiful and intelligent girl.. 😉

Hahaha. Yeah, I do believe that I’m beautiful because God made me to be, and my mother often affirms it. But as I grew up, I get to ask myself, what is it really that makes a girl beautiful?

A beauty queen-turned-TV show host, after interviewing former beauty queens, concluded three ways that make a girl beautiful:

  1. She is confident. She knows how to present herself in front of other people.
  2. She knows herself very well. She works on her strengths and weaknesses.
  3. She pursues what she loves to do. She spends time on the things that she is most passionate about.

I shared this to a guy friend and he agreed. He even said that I am indeed beautiful and I’m starting to believe it even more now HAHA. We affirmed that it’s not the physical appearance that makes a person attractive or the person’s look that would make you want to spend time with him or her, but it is the person’s attitude and outlook in life.

My friends know the qualities I look for in a man since my schooling years and I think it hasn’t change till now. I would love an intelligent partner. A man’s intellect makes him appear more handsome and gentleman in my eyes. I wonder, do men think of intelligent women that way?

There came a time when I thought I might be too idealistic to hope for a man with a great mind because of my friends’ comments. They say that my standards are unrealistic and so I considered leveling them down. Some even say that I tend to intimidate guys because I have a smart aura.

I almost believe that exposing my great mind (consciously and unconsciously) might give me a nerdy look and may cause a guy to back off or I might appear superior and then cause a guy to lose heart. But reading this article on how a woman’s mind can be sexier than her appearance, reaffirmed me that it’s okay to be smart. Here are some ways mentioned that I feel is true for me and made me feel more beautiful:

  • She remembers what others tell her and genuinely listens.
  • She’s interested in the world around her and actively engages herself in learning about it.
  • She can create conversation about any subject and clearly enjoys doing so.
  • She’s eager to learn about different facets of knowledge.
  • She’s interested in other careers and concepts that she doesn’t know much about.
  • She loves to dig deeper. She loves to learn more. She loves to question.

I somehow feel like the writer knows me and is describing me as he wrote the article. Haha, thanks indeed for writing these down! And of course, thanks to God, who knows me more intimately, for giving me this mind and for making me more beautiful and intelligent each day. Yey!

Byaheng bus 001: Upuan

Sanay na ko sa tayuan sa bus. Kahit isang oras, kakayanin. Pero syempre mas gusto kong maupo.

Kanina, puro babae kaming nakatayo sa gitna. Kakasakay lang kasi namin. E mukang pagod sa trabaho yung mga lalaking nakaupo kaya siguro di nila mabigay ang upuan nila para samin. Okay, naintindihan naman namin.

Naka-dress ako at halos isang oras nang nakatayo. May bumaba sa tapat ko, saktong-sakto para sakin yung upuan. Pumipwesto na ko nung maisip kong may mas matandang nakatayo sa likuran ko. Tinignan ko yung upuan, tinignan ko siya. “Sige, kayo na po muna.”

Haaayy, minsan talaga kailangang magparaya. HAHA

Writing what I think, Thinking what I write

“Writing is a way of finding out. By objectifying his thoughts in the medium of language, he gets a chance to see what is going on in his mind.”

Indeed, writing helps me clear my thoughts. Whenever I need to speak in front, it helps that I write what I’m going to talk about – may it be a birthday wish, an announcement, a short talk, or a sermon.  I am a lady of many words because I want to share ALL my ideas and so seeing my thoughts objectified through words makes me figure out what I really wanted to say and omit extraneous words.

Reading this article, I remembered when I was asked by a friend to send a greeting for the birthday of our common friend. We communicated thru txt and so my words were limited. It took me more than thirty minutes composing my message mainly because I’m not that close to the celebrant and because, as I said, the number of words were limited.

Choosing the right words is a tedious but fulfilling task. I picked the best words, combined phrases, and deleted words. It also led me to go straight to the point, with no sugarcoat, but with utmost sincerity. That was one of my shortest but most meaningful birthday greeting of all time haha! This reaffirms what I said earlier, writing helps me clear my thoughts. And that clear thinking helps me make my writing clear. 🙂

Magkwento ka naman

Kumusta araw mo? Anong nararamdaman mo? Anong nagpasaya sayo? May pinanghihinayangan ka ba? Nagpakatotoo ka ba? Binigay mo ba ang best mo? Naging mabuti ka bang kaibigan, titser, anak, kapatid, o pasahero? Na-share mo ba ang dakilang pag-ibig at Salita ng Diyos?

Kinilig ka ba ngayong araw? Nakita mo si crush? Kailan ka huling umakyat ng bubong para mag-stargazing? May bago ka bang cut-out painting? Nagkikita pa ba kayo ni Cha? Tapos na ba yung librong binabasa mo? Ubos na ba labada mo? Naglinis ka ba ng kwarto? Nabawasan ba santambak mong papel?

Kumusta na ang relasyon mo sa Diyos?
