I take the long way home most nights.
Unwilling to return to a home that would be sought after by many.
But the night air doesn’t taste right here.
Have you ever felt that your life was a fraction off?
Maybe you were born ten seconds too soon.
Maybe you don’t belong anywhere.

Gusto kong isipin na tungkol sa special na mga bagay ang mga sinusulat ko. :-)
Kahit na sobrang daming opportunities ang binibigay sa akin ngayon dahil sa pagiging Chem Eng student ko, hindi ko pa rin nakikita ang sarili ko as an engineer.
Gusto ko pa rin talagang maging pediatrician.
Think you know Elbi more than anyone else? Think again.

I haven’t been ranting lately. Well, here goes my rant.
Everytime I get this kind of “advice”, I get so pissed off. Yes, I understand the concern and the person’s freedom of speech… but not this way. Not in this way all over again.
Yup, I’ve heard this a lot of times. I’ve heard it so much it made me ask myself “what is better anyway?”.
People are too concerned I might get hurt? I have always been responsible for my own failures and heartbreaks. There may be times wherein I needed to seek advice from my friends, and that makes me more human… I can only take so much.
I think I’m old enough to decide on the things I deserve.
"I’ve been spending the last eight months, thinking all love ever does is break and burn and end.
But on a Wednesday in a cafe, I watched it begin again.”
I was afraid that if I write about something and post it here on my blog before it has been confirmed, it’d be jinxed. This post, however, is not confirming anything in all forms. I just want to write this down.
For the past year, I didn’t know the reason why I was there for you all along. Maybe because I don’t like to see anyone get hurt by someone close to me, or maybe because from the start, I wanted to look after you. I couldn’t remember when our first conversation on FaceBook or somewhere else really started, or how I got to know you. But I remembered the first time I saw you and talked to you in person. It was during AChES’ first semester orientation last year. It was my then-boyfriend’s birthday, and since he was having fun with his friends in Diliman, I didn’t want to waste my night by sulking while waiting for his text message. So I left my phone at my dorm, and made the impulsive decision of attending the orientation.
It was after the orientation when I first talked to you in person. You were talking to Dan while I just stand there, feeling a little awkward. Dan left to talk to someone else. You were there in your red jersey. You said you just came from training, asked me if I’m going to enter the organization that semester and got my number. When I got home, I saw my phone full with my boyfriend’s messages and with yours as well.
Narrating how we became close would bore everyone who would even think of reading this. Maybe I’ll post it someday. But for now, even if we admit that our friendship was the most bizarre (not to mention ironic) things that had happened between the two of us, I am thankful everything happened at the right time. I’m glad that finally, we’ve found the right time.
Valentine’s day this year was wow… just wow.
Everything is so different this year. Over a year ago, I never imagined that this year would be so different. The aura this time around was something nice. It wasn’t the lonely time I was used to every year. Maybe because it’s February Fair (Feb Fair) and that I have two booths to go to this year, or maybe because it fell on a Friday, or simply because this time, I am happy with everything that’s happening around me right now.
Moreover, this is the first time Dad didn’t give me any flowers (he does this every year without fail), given that I had to stay here in UP because I had 7 PM classes. And this is also the first time I received a lot of flowers from others aside from Dad.
(No vase so I used a stick-o container to keep ‘em flowers alive HAHAHA)
The UP AChES brods have this “tradition” of giving out roses/flowers to their sisses during classes (large classes, I think). I receieved three roses and three KitKat Chunky’s (God knows how hard these are to find in LB for the past three weeks) from Melvin during my Chemistry laboratory class. I honestly didn’t know how to react wtf hahaha. It just feels so weird (in a good way weird, btw) because I don’t know almost everyone in my lab class and there were graduate students (so they’re like 30+ years old or something), and I keep on worrying if they thought that it was kind of cheesy thing to do; nevertheless, I am very very very thankful for the effort. :)
I spent the rest of the evening with Vena Contracta since it was our second month of being members of AChES. The sisses had surprises for the brods too but wtf we spent almost over an hour waiting for them to show up. We gave them balloons and mini-cupcakes and sang a short song for them. After our surprise, the brods told us to go to the garden beside the student union building. A few of them were there and they sang us some songs. Afterwards, they asked us to go back to the booth wherein there were two columns of brods singing and were giving out roses.
When I went out of the booth, I saw Melvin and he gave me a boquet of flowers once again. It was so overwhelming. I never thought I’d deserve these kinds of things since I’ve always had a crappy Valentine’s day.
Right now, I still can’t find the right words to say how happy I was (and still am) during that night. Still, I thank God I made the right decisions I’ve ever made… probably one of the best ever. :-)
