Thank you coz because of you, I have learned to be strong, to stand up for myself, to not let anyone step on me. Because of you I’ve learned not to settle but to aim for the best. because of you I’ve learned to rely on myself and no one else. Even though you pulled me to do the opposite of all that I have said, I’ve become smart enough to know that I had no future with you, no life with you. That all that’s left for me is trying to grasp that last breath of air so that I can breath. But if it wasn’t for you, then I wouldn’t be where I am right now, you can actually say that YOU had something to do with it, and I thank you for that.
Ok, considering that this is the first question that I have been asked, I will try to answer it without sounding like a hallmark postcard.. the answer to this question is very simple, I think that there can be no life without love. I can say that you have never fully lived without loving or being loved. Good enough?
I am so happy that you were born first, coz God knows that Ate Kris and I needed someone more responsible to be the first, someone who’d take the crap first that’s thrown, and we are lucky that you’ve done just that without rubbing it in our faces. We needed someone to pull us off each other when we were younger, and now that we’re older, you’re house is our safe haven, a place that both Ate Kris and I can come home to whenever something bad happens and we need to vent. You’re always the one I know that when I’m in a shit-load of problems, that I can run to, and I feel safe, and I know that you’d help me.You can always tell when there’s something bothering me just form the sound of my voice on the phone, and with no hesitation you always say “why don’t you come over.” You always try to help me in any way you can and i assure you that in the future, i’ll be able to pay you back. You are the brains of our thread-of-three, the master mind, the one with the clever ideas, ate kris is our cheer leader, our glue that holds it together, and our nerves, and I will carry out the deed for us, like you said, I’m the muscle. I’m so thankful to have you in my life, and i’m so happy that it’s like a forever deal, WALA KANG KAWALA!!!
Dear Ate Kris (A.K.A. failure to save the damn marrriage),
I miss you terribly, and I wish you’re here. It’s just not the same without you. You are the person that I like to see when I need a vacation from all the hustling here, we are always able to have fun even when we are just in the house, cooking and watching scary movies. When we’re in Vegas, we don’t even have to go out to enjoy each other’s company, just sitting in the same space is good enough. I am always home sick when I think of you and the kids, it’s weird coz it’s not my home but I feel like you are one of my homes. AWWWWW! We had our differences when we were younger, but I am so happy that that’s a whole different chapter, maybe even a different volume now, coz I don’t miss the hair-pulling and the biting haha. I am very happy to see how happy you are now, how you ahve changed so drastically and became the mellow person that you are, you are such like a mom and I say that in a good way coz you have it all figured out, I can’t believe you can come home from work, take care of the two kids, and still want to cook dinner, you’ve got it more figured out than most people in the world, more than you know!
I love both of you and I am lucky to have both of you in my life.
I’m so glad I have four of you, two sets of each, people think it’s a broken fambam but on the contrary, I think it’s the best thing ever, I have a bigger family! Thank you for understanding me through out the years, putting up with my bad past and helping me towards a better future, I appreciate it more than you guys will ever know. I feel good to have so many of you to call when I need different opinions on so many different things, and I love how you all have different answers! so many options to choose from. Love you guys!
I know that Rubi is such an ass, but why do you keep thinking of her? and screw maribel, think of me instead, coz maribel is barren and can’t give you any babies, but me alejandro, I will gladly give you one, two, maybe a basketball team, maybe a football team and we will name them Alejandro 1, alejandro 2, so on and so forth! If only I can crawl into the TV and slap Rubi for you I would have done it! coz Maribel can’t defend you! Oh Alejandro marry me and be the king of my country. LOL (That’s what you call too much TV)
Dear Barbaragas, I miss you so much, I wish we were living in the same city, let alone the same country. I just realized that you have been my soul sister for 19 years, in a year you will be my longest relationship in my lifetime, next year will be our 2 decades as bff’s! you’ve been with me through thick and thin and I’d like to think that I have been there with you as well, as much as I can, and will continue to for as long as I can. We went from talking about the scary clown at mica’s 5th birthday, to the sucky braces and glasses that you had to have back in 5th grade (head turner nga sabe ni sak), to talking about the girl who stole our loves away, to talking about me coming home for good (which didn’t happen), to talks about you coming here for my hypothetical-future wedding. So many memories that makes my heart melt and my insides warm and fuzzy. When I think of home I think of you. I can’t wait to see you again in december. xoxo, Your bestfriend
One day you'll meet a guy who would take care of you like you were never in good hands before. A guy that will make you smile whenever you're sad, will give you his sweater just to make you feel warm, would stop drinking just because you don't want him to. Someone who'll have chick flick marathons with you. Someone who'll put up with your rants just because he doesn't want a fight. Someone who'll kiss you on the forehead when you're about to sleep. And someone who'll love you and accept you for who you really are.
