Some kind of addiction?

for insta.jpg

Have you ever had this friend that always takes selfies, borrows your phone and sees dozens of pictures in your gallery? If you are annoyed with those type of people well, hell no you got to get used to it if you are gonna be friends with me. I’m probably the greatest hypocrite on this website (wordpress I mean) due to the fact that I’ll both be giving opinions on negative and positive effects of taking selfies. But the fact that I am trying to point out these negative facts about it and I tell people those stuff, urging them to stop is being a hypocrite itself since I can’t even follow my own words. I am not someone who can get a taste of my own words.

I swear to the highest point of Mt. Fuji that I am affected by this sort of virus of taking pictures of myself. I don’t know why, its just looking at my face and making myself look pretty looks nice. Even though I don’t post them or something, I just really like doing it. I don’t know if it is sort of a bad thing since it is like I am praising myself for having this apperance or looks but taking pictures or people call these days selfies is fun. Especially that if you are planning to change your dp.

I don’t have a phone and I never really gotten a phone who has a good quality of a camera. Usually, that is the main reason why I borrow people’s phones and start taking pictures there since my phone is somewhat boring in terms of pictures and as of now, I don’t have a phone. But selfies inspire you to think that, “hey I might not be some mistaken crap”  and actually help you with some various things like you need to vlog something and such. It gives a point of you in which it is directly focused on you, not with the things around you like cars, different things and many more. It can help you see what you look like in a much clearer angle or side especially if you want to inspect the face itself.

I took this selfie during the RSPC (Regional Schools Press Conference) which I’ll be making a blog post about in the next few weeks or month. This is a perfect example of a selfie. If I want to look at my forehead to see I have pimples-instead of using the mirror, always lifting up the hair in front of me from of me, I’ll just take a selfie and look at my forehead and zoom in and out to search for the most little of details. Selfies can also give you a portrait of yourself especially when you are embarrased to let someone take a picture of you both in public and private events.

Negative points is that it is somewhat so addicting that people tend to see at it as a normal thing. Okay, I know it can help you see what you look like but it isn’t always you have to take photo (the hypocrite vibe is coming in) I mean, there are plenty of things to take pictures of than yourself. I know looking at yourself is sometimes good that at least you take a bit of a notice of yourself and how you can fix this cruddy face of yours. But taking too many, uploading each photo online is just wrong and is somewhat like a disease or something. I mean, what is the use of your memory cards, files and etc. if you can’t store them in? Maybe you seek for attention and compliments from many that you share them online.

Scientists say taking more than 7 selfies and uploading them into a specific website is already a sign that they are getting addicted to themselves and digging them into the thought of being beautiful. Personally, I think I take more than 7 selfies, check the first photo I uploaded, do you think those were at least 7? Even more than that since I have more stored in my files. See? I am such a hypocrite and probably these are just effects o the addiction of taking selfies.

I take selfies even at times I shouldn’t. With various apps and sometimes I make albums out of it. I pretend to be a model and take selfies as if I am a celebrity. I’m like a primadonna at the same time, once again, a hypocite in terms of speaking. That is a picture in which I didn’t post yet but I took a lot of those pictures especially with those applications available that have those cartoon like filters and like stuff on your face-ugh, its so addicting due to the fact it makes you look cuter, prettier and I don’t know, it makes you look better in any way you should be.

Overall, selfies are well, it depends on how you think of it and use it. Good or bad, the result will always be a picture. And sometimes the reason of the selfie was important reasons or emergency related reasons but you know what, I completly doubt it since how would selfies help in emergencies and important agenda(s)? Oh well, nobody knows and hopefully we’ll know next time. This is such a random topic to talk about but I hope you guys enjoy. Stay updated for my updates and I assure you the trip I’ve gone to weeks or a week ago, will be featured in this blog of mine and yes, it is about the RSPC. I hope you guys read that one too! And remember, once you take a selfie, it never stops.

For a short amount of time (Teacher’s Day tribute)

For a short amount of time

Your presence strucked everyone’s attention
Grasped their minds into the right position
Your teaching had given me more than just information-
gave me inspiration to go to the right direction

As much as I want to say,
I want you to stay.
But sadly you can’t,
You are just a growing plant-
knowing your flaws
and getting to know what is raw.

Leaving us behind,
with unanswered questions a lies-
we are crying deep inside.
Don’t leave us please,
We need your stars to shine.

All your smiles and cries
will make you a better person deep inside
You’ll blossom
and be someone who can summon
and shower blessings to a lot of folks
As to your hard work and effort showed,
thank you from the bottom of our hearts-
thank you even for a short amount of time

The Aperture in Between us (A love story) Part 1

I’m in love with a boy. I want to say I am wrong and this is just false love-that I only have a huge crush on him. But no, I do love him. The way he looks, walks and everything more, it matters to me. I hate it when he looks at other people, talks to them as if they deserve it especially to the girls I hate. Why can he talk to them, mingle with them? While I, who had always been clean and nice never had been noticed.

I want to cry so badly. Why? Do I need to be sophisticated or changed just for him to notice someone like me? He knows my name. He knows what I look like. I bet he has taken notice of me but just a little bit of time. But why? Why doesn’t he add me on Facebook or something like at least show something that you know me so I’d be satisfied! I guess you did notice me, but you’ve seen my flaws, misunderstood my ways and thought I was someone you shouldn’t be called. I know your friends, well, they know me. They added me on Facebook-they seem nice. I wish I had fallen in love with them instead for they have taken notice of what and who I really am.

It’s like you are so far. I can’t even imagine myself being with you so why would I think you’d like me? A lot from your class are pretty. I know one who seems to be your type and heard rumours that she and you have a thing. I felt sad but kept it as a secret deep inside and acted like a girl interested but actually fun to be talking about you all through the day.

My friend likes you-a lot of them do actually. But I believe among all them, I am the girl who loves you the most. Not because of time, because of what I feel. I know these emotions that are lingering inside of me are true and sufficient that I am able to determine that I love you.

I’m sorry. I insult you every day so people won’t find it obvious that I like you. You are actually pretty handsome and your skin colour doesn’t determine who you are as a person. Actually, you look good with it. Listen, I want you to know that once you hear someone saying I’m insulting you, please don’t get mad at me and try to misunderstand who I am. I don’t want people to know the truth. I’d rather look up at the second floor where you are, even just a glimpse of you than trying to run after you even though I know I am losing. I’m fine, really.

You love someone else. And I love you. How many times did I say that? I’m not tired though, I’ll never be. It is saddening but I still accept. I’m fine, I’m fine. I hope she loves you too even though some people say you are a jerk sometimes and somewhat misunderstood by people. You have attractive points, don’t get me wrong.

You are famous. It is indeed hard to reach you. I stalk you but I’m not that obsessed. I’m waiting for the time you’d add me or something that is why I check your posts and your friends because maybe, I’m just here, waiting and hoping for something to happen even though it is far from reality. Your followers, likes and many more from the different social media around amazes me. It really is hard being such an attractive dude. That is why I fell in love with you.

I love you. I’m flustered with so much vibe when I say that. It could have been much better if it was in real life, like a movie scene or something but too bad, I can’t and I will never. It is just too impossible for someone like me and someone like you to end up together. This is all a fairy tale but I am not the main character.

 

 

For once,

Really, I desire something

And crave for an exciting story to blossom

Not that I want it to be me and him

Can it be though?

This doesn’t make sense

But the first letters in the first five lines do

It is the name of the guy I am probably in love

 

Saturday Escapades.

Saturdays are my favorite days. Not only am I free for a couple of hours, there is somewhat a vibe of summer on Saturdays-well, for me because high school just started and pressure hasn’t really kicked in. As much as possible, since there aren’t a lot of things to do yet, might as well enjoy Saturdays with family and friends.

Last week Saturday was kind of different to the normal flow and schedule I had. I mean, most of the time, I have training for journalism or either way group projects that are to be done outside or inside of the school campus and it isn’t really normal to not have these kind of happenings on a Saturday. There was actually a convention called Children’s Museum and Library Incorporated in which almost all of my classmates attended. About 10 people or so from my section did not join, including me. I was having these thoughts on going like I already set it in my mind that “hey, I will go because all my friends are there and I am gonna be left out” but it came to me that I didn’t need to do that in order to fit in like yeah, there will be a certain I’ll be left out due to this convention that would probably be an issue on Tuesday when classes return but I told myself that if my heart doesn’t desire to go to such an activity, why force myself just to be somewhat not out of place. I don’t necessarily seek for such thing and also for attention because some people I wish to be friends with are there and that would be most likely a big chance for us to build that friendship but you know what, I’m letting my fate do the work and there were much more fun things that happened than that program. Not to say that it is boring but the way my Saturday went was a blast.

So uh, hey? Stop describing it and start talking.

Well, sorry. I am just trying to make it catchy so a lot of people will be happy in reading my blog post especially that this is my first blog and people are gonna judge the way it is through this write up so please understand. Anyways, early morning around seven, I ate breakfast as always and don’t think of it as a formal and wonderul breakfeast that I have this fancy mug and toasted bread that was fresh from the toaster. Welp, too bad, I only have cheap chocolate milk from the store and some bread that was newly bought from a bakery shop. But, it is delicious and it will always be loved by me. Okay, let us go back to what should  be talked about, so my mom asked me if I wanted to go with them, the other members of my family, to Robinsons or SM. And since I wanted and love Jollibee, I agreed and so, the family went out together.

I don’t have a specific pictures of the things we did but we kind of seperated ways. I went with my mom to buy clothes and some materials needed for the family and school. While dad, with my little brother and sister went to the playhouse to stay there for an hour or so while we go buying stuff. We went to a lot of places just to buy specifc things and the best part was the shop filled with headbands, ties and other accessories. It was cute and fun!

When we got home, around 1, I got ready for bible study which I go to evey Saturday (sometimes I am absent due to the practices and training for journalism and other stuff). We went there 3o minutes early or even more than that and one of my best friends and church mate was already there. That bible study had been a routine for us girl best friends for months already and it is considered as our bonding time. I have been with them ever since childhood and they are outstanding friends. We have another squad with boys too but compared to the boys, of course, the girls are well, they understand how I do like we understand each other because we are girls and we have specific topic for the boys too. And the bible study is one way for us to hang out with the help of God’s word of course.

Bible study went on as a success but some weren’t there because of school matters. We went out to Chew love, a place where in the place design is extremely wonderful and gorgeous. The food is yummy but kind of expensive for some people. I ate fries as usual. I don’t really go to that place for snacks because a lot of older people are there and it is embarassing for a teen like me to be in that type of atmosphere but since the squad decided to get there so I had to at least try to go out of my comfort zone and luckily, only a few people were there. We were even the first group of people to eat there in the afternoon.

After eating and using the wifi (yes), we went out to take a few pictures and it was a huge success I had a lot of things to choose from for my profile picture and other things that needs to be updated in terms of pictures. Here are some examples of what we took.

It wasn’t only me who they took a picture of, don’t get the idea wrong since I am posting and featuring my face. It is because we used my friend’s Ipad and she only sent me specific pictures where I was in so sorry if you guys had to see pictures of me. I know my face could be annoying at some points. I think of that to when I look at myself at the mirror. Anyways, after chew love, we went to other cafes or stores to buy other snacks because we are just so in love with the food in Tacloban, they are so good! I went to K Patisserie to buy a cupcake and my friend, Summer bought in the other store for these bars. I don’t know what they are called but they are delicious as to what she said. And my cousin, who is also part of the squad, went to a convinient store in which she bought junk food and some cute looking notebooks.

We went to church to stay there for a while since it is an open area for everyone and we talked about stuff specifically I was talking to Summer since the other two were using the wifi and watching something fun. We were planning on taking more pictures but then our driver came already and the four of us seperated ways. I got home around five and I immediately jumped onto my bed because I was so tired. I ran by the way to some drama before taking a nap but I won’t be telling you guys because it isn’t that big of a drama, don’t worry. I cried.. Because I was so mad and sad for the thing that made me cry. I kept talking to myself, thinking that I was talking to my sister who started everything. And then, I took a nap, trying to drive away everything, the emotions that were raising up and the tiredness.

When I woke up, typical schedule comes. Takes a bath, eats dinner etc. I was still mad but I was able to talk to my sister with a vibrant attitude because I don’t dig in the atmosphere of being mad because I don’t want to be filled with hatred and stuff. Eventually, around 9 o’clock in the evening, I decided to watch Suicide Squad. I ran into casualties since I watched it through my laptop and the cd is somewhat I don’t know, weird? So, I couldn’t start watching the movie immediately but I was able to! It was fun and I enjoyed it! I really love the movie and the story was amazing. I hope I could cosplay Harley Quinn next time when I get rich or something. I slept around past 11:30 that time and my body was aching because I was in that position for two hours straight so I really needed to sleep or rest. I didn’t sleep instantly though, I did something before that and then eventually drifted off to sleep.

Thank you guys so much for reading this blog post of mine! I hope you continue to read my other blog posts and support my blog for what it is. Tune in for other stories that might give you an inspirational message to reflect in life or just have fun buy reading random stuff. It doesn’t really matter haha. Thank you guys so much and see you next time!
