  2. 6 Reasons why you should start your own organic garden

    1. It makes you smile and excited seeing the first sign of life growing from that seed you planted a few days ago.

    2. It teaches you patience. We all know we need that in this crazy-everything-instant world we live in.

    3. They attract butterflies and bees and add beauty to your home.

    5. You get free food. One that’s also free from chemicals. 

    6. And lastly, coz it’s fun!

     

  3. "It’s nothing personal. I’d love to hangout but I kinda need to hangout with myself for a while✌️"
     

  4. WTF am I doing, writing this at 1 in the morning. Also, I don’t proofread so this one’s just all over the place ha!

    This past year I’ve just learned a few things about myself. I know you’re probably thinking “dude, you’ve been alive for 19 years! How do you not know yourself?”. And I’ll probably answer you with my middle finger. No I’m just kidding. Or not. Haha. See, back in gradeschool we used to take personality tests or aptitude tests (think divergent hah!) or something. And my results were always intrapersonal (or something like that). I used to think it was such a lame result. My classmates were more into musical, dancing, logical, interpersonal, artistic side. And I’m the i-like-to-be-with-myself kind. The lonewolf. The loner. I’m not gonna lie I used to deny it all the time. I used to think those tests were stupid coz they made me feel different from the rest of the crowd. Only for a little while though because I was 12 and didn’t take that shit seriously. I continued to live my life but somehow that feeling of in denial was buried deep down inside my freakin stomach or some part of my anatomy. Hah! Anyways, I got to highschool and moved on with my life. I remember back then I was always in a hurry to go home after dismissal. I’d tell my friends that I’d be fetched early even though it wasn’t really true. I just really wanted to sit in the chair near the guardhouse alone and wait for the driver to come pick me up. There were times when I’d be fetched really late and my friends would see me (trying to hide from them hahaha) and they’d be like “oy din you’re still here. I thought you were going home early?” And I’d be like ☺️☺️☺️ hehhehe. I never really understood why I was acting that way, not till I got to college. The beautiful world of the interkernet gave me answers. Answers I’ve been wanting to know. I can picture you saying “The internet’s been here for a long time. How could you have possibly gotten your answers just now?”. Again, middle finger. Hahahha. I had just recently (and I mean the past 2-3 ish years) come across the word introversion and started reading articles about it. And I found out that that is exactly who I am. I found out that I am not alone. I am not alone in being alone. Hooray! There are people out there who are just like me. People who love being with their own company. People who enjoy silence and solitude. People who enjoy staying home and doing nothing for the weekend. I found out that I am not weird, that I am not a loser for wanting to stay home all the time, that just because I don’t go out that much doesn’t mean I have no life, that I’m not a fucking killjoy, that it’s not true that I don’t know how to have fun. Reading those articles helped me understand who I am and has somehow put things in perspective. I’ve gotten to know myself a little better now, probably not fully but somehow. I don’t expect people to understand though, hell I don’t even get it myself sometimes. I’m just happy knowing that it’s okay to want to be with yourself, that it’s okay not to want to go where everybody else is, that it’s okay to be an introvert.

    So hey if you’re an introvert like me, dude high five✋! Also, you’re okay ;)

     

  5. Lifehouse plays in the background

    I sit in a rust covered chair at the second floor of my house that’s overlooking a scarecrow-guarded-maya-infested ricefield while the cool winds brush against my skin, giving me the chills and possibly gas passing urges. I watch from afar, the little boys flying their kites on a late summer afternoon. Yes! Summer is upon us. It has finally graced us with its awesome presence, reminding us that the beaches are prepped, the swimwears screaming from our drawers begging us to let them see daylight and that we can kiss school goodbye for a good two months. Summer has always been my favorite season, given that I live in the Philippines and we only have two seasons: wet and dry. I love the rainy season too but that would have to be in a different post. I remember when I was younger I used to beg my parents to let me and my brother (it was just the two of us then) go out and play what we thought (and still think) were (are) the coolest pinoy kids games with our 20+ kid neighbors. Bato-lata, bahaw-bahaw, buwan-buwan just to name some some. I remember asking my mom for money so that we could buy halo-halo as afternoon snacks. I remember going home smelling awfully good (think sweat and fun! A perfect combo for a summer eau de toilette). And I remember wishing the nights would be in a hurry so that I could do the same things the next day. Man, I am feeling nostalgic! I blame Regina Spektor (her music makes me nostalgic idk why) whom I was listening to on my way home from the gym.
    Anyways, point of post: I LOVE SUMMER!

    Vavay👋

  8. Sorreh couldn’t help myself

    I  can’t put into words all the feels I’m feeling right now. But just to give you an idea here’s one word that would best describe it. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! 

    There! Now that I’ve let that out. Oh wait here’s one more, AAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! 

    Anyways I went to watch Divergent with my friends today. I’ve been wanting to watch it since the day it came out but I still had school so no go. I finally got to watch it today and man I am flippin’ glad that I did. Seriously my insides are literally flippin. I should tell you though that I am a fangirl and when I fangirl, I fangirl thoroughly! Hahaha. Anywhoo I should end this. I need to take care of my feelings (and screams) before someone tells me to shut up. 

    Also, Hello summer!

    This is merely a suggestion. Can you please spend some of that infamous pork barrel funds on solar powered houses. Build decent and energy saving homes for every Filipino. Thank you.
