10 Books Challenge

September 07, 2014 / 31 NOTES ♥

So someone tagged me with this in facebook, and I guess you’re supposed to list 10 books that stayed with you in some way. So here goes in no particular order! (Don’t judge me or my tastes lol)

1. The Five People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom
“You have peace,” the old woman said, “when you make it with yourself. The only time we waste is the time we spend thinking we are alone.” 
 
2. Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
“A lot of you cared, just not enough.” 
 
3. The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare
“And now I’m looking at you,” he said, “and you’re asking me if I still want you, as if I could stop loving you. As if I would want to give up the thing that makes me stronger than anything else ever has. I never dared give much of myself to anyone before – bits of myself to the Lightwoods, to Isabelle and Alec, but it took years to do it – but, Clary, since the first time I saw you, I have belonged to you completely. I still do. If you want me.” 
4. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
“I want more numbers for Augustus Waters than he got. But, Gus, my love, I cannot tell you how thankful I am for our little infinity. I wouldn’t trade it for the world. You gave me a forever within the numbered days, and I’m grateful.” 
 
5. Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy by E.L. James
“Laters, baby.” 
 
6. If He Had Been with Me by Laura Nowlin 
“You think you deserve to be sad,” he says. There is a moment of silence as we look at each other. “You think it is okay for you to be sad every day. But it’s not okay. And you do not deserve it.” 
7. Beauty trilogy by Georgia Cates
“I’m sorry for all the secrecy, for making you feel like you weren’t important enough to know the real me. But I’m most sorry because I have fucked you – I don’t know how many times – and never made love to you.” 
8. Looking for Alaska by John Green
"I wanted so badly to lie down next to her on the couch, to wrap my arms around her and sleep. Not fuck, like in those movies. Not even have sex. Just sleep together in the most innocent sense of the phrase. But I lacked the courage and she had a boyfriend and I was gawky and she was gorgeous and I was hopelessly boring and she was endlessly fascinating. So I walked back to my room and collapsed on the bottom bunk, thinking that if people were rain, I was drizzle and she was hurricane." 
9. Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom
"If you hold back on the emotions—if you don’t allow yourself to go all the way through them—you can never get to being detached, you’re too busy being afraid. You’re afraid of the pain, you’re afraid of the grief. You’re afraid of the vulnerability that loving entails. But by throwing yourself into these emotions, by allowing yourself to dive in, all the way, over your heard even, you experience them fully and completely." 
10. If I Stay by Gayle Forman
“Losing me will hurt; it will be the kind of pain that won’t feel real at first, and when it does, it will take your breath away.” 
I tag everyone reading this! :)

Mahirap po ba exam sa DLSU?

Idk e I didn’t take there. :)

To the new man in her life,

August 27, 2014 / 15 NOTES ♥

Vibrant and full of zest for life — that’s who she was. She lit up a room whenever he walked in, with a smile that makes you jealous, because there was nothing but pure happiness and innocence. She had the most beautiful light brown eyes, which were even lighter in the sunlight. And her hair, oh her hair, they were a wild mess of tangles but in the most perfect way. 

She was smart — far too smart for me, and for any man, I believe. She takes no shit from anyone and stands up for what she believes in. Tell her she can’t, and she’ll shown you she can. She was is beautiful. Both on the outside and inside. She has the purest heart I know, one that’s been through too much heartbreak and pain, and you wouldn’t know it. Because she believes in herself, and she believes that everything will eventually fall into place. I’ve never known anyone as sure of herself as she is.

She reads too — a lot. One minute you’ll be constantly in contact with her, and the next you wait and wait and wait, and she won’t reply. Don’t panic. Go to her place, the old cafe in East 56th that no one knows about. You’ll find her there, sitting on the back booth, so engrossed in a novel she won’t even look up when you sit on the opposite table. Oh, and don’t disturb her; she’ll  come back to you in a few hours.

One last thing; let her be, but don’t ever let her go. Don’t make the same mistake I did, clinging on to her because I was too afraid to lose her. Don’t. Let her go when she needs it, because she’s that person. She doesn’t need anyone much more a man, but consider yourself lucky blessed, because she chooses to be with you. But don’t leash her, let her be the person she wants to be, and let her see that you’re exactly the kind of person she’s supposed to end up with; the kind that loves her enough to let her follow her dreams and grow into thee person she’s supposed to be. 

Oh, and love her. Love her like you’ve been drowning and she’s the relief you feel when you surface, because that’s exactly what she is. Don’t be me. I hope to God that you treat her well. You are so blessed to have her in your life, and I hope you’re smart  enough to realize that. 

Layag Productions | Via Manila BTS

August 24, 2014 / 31 NOTES ♥

As some of you know, TV Production is a junior CA’s major subject. We’ve been divided  into groups, and being in a TOMCAT group, we have to produce 8 TOMCAT shows, our major show being Via Manila, a travel show. Here’s what goes on behind the scenes.

For our first episode, I was a segment cameraman. Our segment’s called “Turo Turo”, wherein a talent had to learn how to ride a kalesa in Intramuros.

In order to capture moving shots, I stood in a pedicab, Rein holding me, with the kalesa right behind us.

This was our TDR (Technical Dress Rehearsal), 15 minutes before our very first live airing.

Meanwhile, the rain was pouring HARD outside, and this is what was going on in the library’s first floor.

Me being a stand in for our guest while they adjusted and practiced shots, with our host, Angelique.

Our entire group, Layag Productions, with our guest and our TV Prod prof.

Back to School: Photo Dump

July 31, 2014 / 24 NOTES ♥

I am so sorry for the hiatus. I know I haven’t blogged in like a month, and that’s because school has already started and I’ve been residing in my dorm room ever since. It’s already been a busy month (going-to-places and outside classroom work wise) and it’s only going to get a lot more hectic within the next couple of weeks with tv prod already starting.

WARNING: Long post without  a “Read More” break.
