the smaller circle, the better

They say that change is the only constant thing in the world, that not everything will stay as it is, same as people as they come and go. I never came to this realization not until I entered college. That time, I thought I knew who were my true, real friends (or maybe I am still in the process of knowing who’s real or not).

I am a people-person back when I was in high school, like I knew every faces in my year (and higher year). It was not like I was famous lol but it was not really so hard to know all of them because I was enrolled in a private school since grade school until I graduated high school, and we had only 3 to 4 sections with maximum of 35 students per class, that’s why. Because of that, I know most of them and became my friends. I really thought that all my friends that time will remain my friends until now, but obviously that’s not the case.

Not until I entered college, most of the people I know (and considered as my friends) lost in touch little by little. I know that it’s normal, that eventually we we’ll meet new people at some point, but you see, I am very sentimental and I valued friendship over everything.

Right now, I am happy with my friends even if it is just a small circle. Even if we don’t see each other that often and just only talk over chat, we know in ourselves that we have each other’s back when someone needed it and I think that’s what’s important. I won’t be needing a bunch of people who are not sincere and true and prefer a few who’s been always on my side and keeping it real.

You see, I made this post because a friend from Manila went to visit me here in Pampanga — three-hour drive. And I was super happy because after 5 LOOOOONG years we got to see each other again. She’s staying here until Sunday and it’s her 2nd day today. I know there’s more stories to tell and fun things to do yet.

Let me share to you guys some of the things that we did (more of selfies) since her arrival. HAHAHA!!!

the sunday currently | 08

GUYYYYYYYYS!!!!!!!!! I am so ecstatic when I opened my notification in my wordpress app!! Guess what? Guess what??

To my 102 followers, I am sending y’all a virtual hugs & kisses! >>>> >:D< 😘 Thank you so much for reading all my non-sense hanash about my life and everything in between. I know this blog is not that awesome in a way that it can inspire a lot of people but I do hope that my followers somehow enjoyed reading what I have written here so far. Also, I never never thought that I will get to know awesoooome people here. I LOVE Y’ALL!!! 💖

It’s Sunday today and to sum up my week: I don’t know why but I felt my mind went blank last week. I have so much things to share: one is about my trip to Bulacan with my boyfie’s side. But when I was in front of my laptop, I just don’t find the right words to start my entry. Like I have all the stories in mind, but when I am about to type it, my mind suddenly shut off. *sigh*

For now, I just get into this Sunday currently entry. Here you go!

CURRENTLY

Reading Coelho’s Eleven Minutes. I am already done reading half of the book. I must say that the story is interesting.

Here’s some of my favorite lines:

Writing this entry. And I’ll try to write some entries to be scheduled.

Listening to Lana Del Rey’s Love 🎶

Thinking of nothing. And it is so irritating and frustrating. You know? You want to think of something but your mind’s not cooperating. I feel so unproductive. 😩

Hoping for something good to happen.

Wearing maong shorts & sleeveless top

Loving the fact that I had a good night sleep these past few days. Though some nights I felt so empty and oddly sad, but still I am feeling better each day. 🙂

Wanting A NEW NOTEBOOK & PENS!!!!!!!!

Needing some $$$ (so that I can buy some new clothes huhu I don’t even know when was the last time I bought a nice shirt)

Feeling sunny. :—–)

Clicking nothing.

Hope you are feeling happy, too. 😁💖 And have a great Sunday!

me as my sister’s canvas (lol)

I don’t usually put makeup, except if there’s a special occasion. But yesterday, my sister decided to play with my face and wanted to try something.

I don’t have my own makeup kit and I really don’t know what brush or powder to use. I just prefer to wear my lip tints and draw my eye brow and that’s it. No more complicated steps to follow. Another fact about me is: I don’t use powder on my face nor wash my face with soap. It is very sensitive, I get pimples easily.  But I am proud that my face is so smooth. Lol.

Moving on, so my sister made some magic. It was a lazy afternoon and we have nothing to do so we decided to play with her makeup kit. My sister is so girly than me. She has a lot of knowledge when it comes to makeup. I think I am not really a girl but I am just trapped with a girl’s body. 😂 That’s what I like about her: she can make me more pretty. She’s also the one who draws my eyebrows perfectly. (When kilay is life 😂)

See, what I mean? Hahahaha!😂

BUT! I told her that once she puts makeup on me, I will do the same thing with her. And here’s the result: 😂😂😂😂😂

What do you think??? I can do magic too, right? XD

Buffering…

If you tell me a joke, I might not catch the humour of it in a second or a minute. Or you might tell me a story and ask something about it and just stare at you for a few seconds before I realize that you are actually talking to me.

My little sister always gets irritated with me being slow like she was talking the whole time and I was not paying attention to what she’s telling me. My attention gets easily caught off of something and that’s not intentional (I PROMISE!) I don’t even know why I became like this and I just laugh at it. It is funny how my sister would tell the story all over again, but ofc, I need to hear her out if ever she’ll repeat it.

Last night, my brother was calling me and I am busy with my phone. Not until my sister tapped me on my shoulder and knew that my little brother was calling me, asking me to volume up the tv. WHAT’S HAPPENING TO ME? HAHAHAHA. And one time, while having our dinner, we had a little chit-chat with my boyfriend and my sister about I dont remember and suddenly I don’t even know what we were talking about and I was like, what? wait, can you tell that part again, and there was my sister, staring at me like I did something horrible and she rolled her eyes on me and told me to just shut up and she won’t repeat what’s she’s talking about. And I was like okay. Or sometimes I misunderstood the whole point of what my sister was telling me.

AM I REALLY SLOW? HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

 

A dead dream came back to life

So we waited for the arrival of my aunt’s at the airport yesterday afternoon. Dark clouds above us, raindrops waiting its signal to pour, while us standing in a roofless area that was made as a waiting area. Half hour passed after the scheduled time but still no appearance from my aunt. And after 1 1/2 hours of waiting, passengers started to come out from the arrival area.

As we were waiting for my aunt, my mind wandered as the flow of people hugging their loved ones, saying how much they missed each other and kisses here and there, went off to the cabin crews who paved their way out of the exit. Like everything slowed in motion and my eyes twinkled with awe, as they walked with their luggage, tall and chin-up, sophisticated and beautiful – a constant reminder why I dreamt to be one like them when I was still a kid.

I never rode an airplane before nor I have a passport. But the dream of being a cabin crew stayed in my heart though I didn’t pursued a course related to it. I remember imagining things like wearing their uniform and helping the passengers but the flame of that dream once put out and died. And yesterday, I remember all the feeling I had on how much I want to become one. To wear make up and high heels (that I don’t usually do) and walk with my other colleagues with our luggage and talk about the places that we’ve been to.

I set aside my dream of becoming a cabin crew when my grandmother asked me to be a Communication major because she wanted me to my face on television or maybe hear me in the radio which I thought it was a joke that time and ofc, the idea doesn’t come to me not until the day of my application in college. I also remember writing to be a flight stewardess as a dream in my high school year book (and maybe if I will attend my high school reunion in the future they will be shocked that I didn’t became one because they know how eager I am and always tell them that I will become a flight stewardess and that I am sure of that.)

But maybe not everything you want in life will be in your hands. Maybe those dreams were there to push you to your limits for you to give you 100 best shot. But not fulfilling your dream doesn’t make you unpersevering and incomplete. There are many roads to take, and you can go back eveytime you want. You can turn left or right. And the road is long. I must say that my dream became an inspiration to me – I studied hard, make good of myself, and I did all that I can to have a good personality and that’s what’s important, right?

I may not be a cabin crew, but I know that I can be a person that is reliable in my chosen field and ofc, awesome in my own way. I always put in mind that it’s not too late, and I know that someday everything will be on its right place and at the right time. :—)

Look who’s nominated? XD

Another first! So touched, even though I am still an alien here in wordpress community I got to know some awesoooome people here, and the lovely Maggie who nominated me for this, thanks!!♡

I am kinda excited to answer all the questions. (I remember answering an autograph book when I was in grade school. Hahaha! Quite similar to this. :—)) Okay, nuff said.

q u e s t i o n s  f r o m Maggie

  1. Have you ever have pets? Yup, I have two dogs, Pulgaso and Bondat, they are homeless when I got them from the street and took them home. And now, they are my babies. Btw, I think my Bondat is pregnant. I am so excited for the new pups. 🐶
  2. What is your favorite dish? I love Adobo and Sinigang and Kare-Kare. I think my love for food is undeniably stronger than my love for my boyfriend (lol) because FOOD IS LIFE! I eat whatever in the table (except anything with ketchup and blood soups) 🍕🍔🍝🍗🍟
  3. What do you think about being a vegan? I tried my best to become one, but the thought of having no meat in my meal feels like I am just eating a small portion of a whole meal. ✌
  4. What is your best blog post so far? If the most viewed post can be consider as the best blog post, it will be this. :—)
  5. If you can be one of the fictional characters, who will you be? I would be Ariel, the little mermaid. I love being on water. It calms me and it feels like home for me. Though I am not that good as a swimmer, I just want to feel the water on me and just float, without having any thoughts on mind. (If swimmers have back strokes, breast strokes and butterfly stroke, I have my very own play dead position <where you pretend a dead person floating in the pool hahaha>)
  6. Do you watch sports?  No, I sucks at sports. I remember in my junior year, I have to hit a ball (for my soft ball class) but all I did was to scream. Meh.
  7. What is your favorite holiday? Christmas Day. LOTS. OF. FOODS. and also, gift-giving.
  8. What is the happiest time at school? When there’s no teacher, me and my friends gathered at the back of the room to jam as we kill time. I think the whole High School experience was my happiest time at school.
  9. If real life is like anime, what kind of hairstyle and eye colors you want to have? I want my hair color to be pink and pixie-cut, and have an aqua blue eyes. Can’t imagine that though. Hahaha!
  10. If you have to time travel, do you want to go to future or the past? The past. I had so many regrets and things that I think I could do that time. I wanted to say all the things that I felt, and not remained silent, that time when I had a chance. I want to stand up on my own, without contemplating if its right or wrong. I just want to be myself and do what I wanted to do when I lost that chance.
  11. One random fact about yourself, please. 😉 I don’t want pineapples on my pizza. 😳

An intro of some sort (maybe a little late)

I always wonder if the parentals were too lazy to put some effort in thinking of a nice name for me because (1) my name (Angelica) is, I am quiet sure, too generic. I envy those whose name sounds like it came from a city street or have an etymology or story behind it. (2) The fact that I always wanted to have a second name or having Maria as a first name, maybe if they can give it to me as a gift, like I’ll be able to pick a name that I really really want, something like that. Hahahaha! and (3) it was too girly for me. It came to a point that being called by my name irritates me. (weird?) So, I prefer being called Ica or Kang on that matter.

I am 20 something, but often mistaken for a high schooler, which I find it as a compliment. (Ha!) I am the eldest, by the way, I have a sister (and people thought that she was my older sister, maybe I just looked younger than her. HA!) and a little brother. I am  currently living here in Pampanga, Ph. Jobless and have all the free time in my hands.

I will not go into details about my life because I am sure that it will only bores (or rather annoys) you. Ergo, I’ll just leave some random fun facts about me and perhaps gives you some glimpse of who I am. Here you go:

#1. I started my interest in indulging (and investing) on books, for the love of written words, when my English teacher in high school asked us to make a book report on our chosen book, and I have to blame Sidney Sheldon for that. My ever first book was Bloodline, and since then, I found myself hiding behind bookshelves and saved half of my allowance for buying books. Booksales are my safe haven.

#2. You can surprise me with a box of rats or lizards, but not COCKROACHES! I hate it. No, I. lOATHE. EVERY. SINGLE. COCKROACH. IN. THE. WORLD. If you ever hear me screaming in the bathroom and you’ll know it is because of that freaking little creature. One more thing, FLYING COCKROACHES ARE THE WORST!

#3. KARAOKE IS LIFE. Though I am not a pro but I can say that I can sing. Or maybe occasionally, when I have the guts or when I am drunk. (lol) At least, I can sing outside the shower. ;—-)

#4. My wardrobe consists of pants, tshirts, and shorts. I think I owned a few dresses that I don’t usually wear. If you let me choose between flats or sneakers, it will be the latter.

#5. As mentioned in my #4, I am not the girly type. You can say that I am one of the boys. If I am not with my boys, my gay friends are to blame for.

#6. On the contrary with #4, I got to experience to join in a beauty pageant. Not that I liked it nor I intentionally put myself in the dilemma of having to put make up thrice a week for pre-pageant shoots, to wear two-piece and a 7 inches heels (which I don’t wear), and of course the nerve-wrecking Q & A portion. I thought I am gonna passed out that night. But luckily, I got to Top 10, even though it was my first time. Indeed, t’was a refreshing experience.

♡♡♡

That’s all for now. I babble a lot, I know. I hope you guys find me interesting as a human being. There are more beans to spill, maybe another blogpost will do.
