The Paper Kites - Young

If you’ve followed me since last summer, you probably know what great love I have for this band. I once cried to the beauty of one of their songs.

So yea, I’m still pretty bummed about not getting to see them live this summer. I mean seriously, they’re one plane ride away. </3

But yea, i guess some things are not meant to be.

But allow me to drown in my sadness for awhile.

… Thanks.

list of graduates not yet released but i’m pretty sure i’m graduating. and haaay. I LOVE UP! but this post’s not about the whole four years, just the last one.

fourth year life - the most tiring, busy, fun and unexpected school year of my entire life. right from the start, my sched’s been blocked by activities already, both from acads and non- acads. here’s a recap of the glorious year:

1. Perception - gosh that class was waaay bad. like if i hated science back in highschool, i hated this subject x1000 more. i mean what’s the purpose of trying to trace where perception starts for all senses, that was crappy. but shit, i ended up with a really good grade, the best so far from our terror teacher. god, that subject… i hated it while it lasted, but loved it when it ended.

2. Miss UP remnants - ofcourse, I had projects aligned to the win which meant model experiences - both the glam model and the role model type. i had runways, photoshoots and the best of all, i was given the chance to help the ones in need. forever thankful to that crown, indeed.

3. thesis  - ah, another challenge i surpassed. though it was crappy all through out, i loved how it all ended up. the findings were so new, and ofcourse, the grade was wonderful.

4. organizations  - a lot of my days were occupied with these, and life would’ve been dull without them. thankful for these blessings, coz i ended up with a social life all throughout the year.

5. friends, old and new  - new places, new stories, new experiences everyday with these people. I have them to be grateful for at the end of each day.

6. food and travel - new food, new destinations. no further explanations needed!

7. grades - probably the most unexpected grace of this year. i just wanted to survive the last year, not expecting the wonderful grades that followed. i’ve always dreamt of becoming a college scholar (our school’s equivalent of dean’s lister or honors), and i always ended up disappointed with being so close to the goal but never really there. but this year, for both semesters, i qualified as college scholar, and yes, one thing off my bucket list.

so basically. I LOVE YOU FOURTH YEAR LIFE <3
such great way to end my college life.

Beauty in an old soul.

I invite people to my not-so-secret spot because I want to talk to them in person, see them laugh, hear their stories and make a connection. It’s difficult, taking down barriers, but stories are revelations. You wade through the conversations and the warmth.. it grows in you.

Thanks for sharing a piece of you with me, Frankie.

Still fan girling. Thank you for this opportunity, ate nawe!

Are you willing to dedicate one tumblr post to the victims of human trafficking?

Today, April 10, 2014, young people from all around the world unite in our fight against human trafficking.

#stand4freedom campaign is an online campaign that hopes to make a noise and let everyone know that this issue is a grave one, one that needs as many supporters and voices as possible.

I encourage you guys, tumblr people, to join the cause.
All you have to do is post a similar photo as the one above, one with your friends, family, alone, etc holding up signs stating “i stand for freedom” (with hashtags #stand4freedom #stand4freedomph #standforfreedomcebu)

Who knew one post can make such difference?
Who knew one post can serve as voice of the oppressed?
Who knew one post can change someone’s life?

One post, one statement.
That’s one day for their everyday!

rants.

I seriously don’t understand my parents. I mean really, they’re so frustrating for the following reasons:

1. They hate me for going home late. Now, it would’ve been reasonable if i went home late coz sex or parties or drugs. but seriously… i’m prolly a goodie goodie. i spend night outs in Mcdonalds or school or in a cafe shop with friends. no alcohol, no drinks, no boys. really, what’s the strict thing for. safety? pssssh. my sister goes home late and they’re fine with it. my brother is a different story.

2. they won’t allow me to go to a concert this may. it would’ve been reasonable if like they have to spend for everything but seriously they won’t. someone’s paying for my plane tickets, i’m paying for the concert. i even asked if pwede kahit one day lang, and they still won’t allow. graduation gift na lang sana? kahit yun lang? a concert? MY SISTER WENT TO A CONCERT TO MANILA ALONE BEFORE. BAKIT AKO DI PWEDE.

.. i mean seriously. i have been a great daughter. i have done so many wonderful stuff that they told me they’re proud off. and this is all i ask. is this what i get for never having summer class coz i seriously never failed any subject in my entire life? for achieving so many things for society? for making a difference?

… and now i’m considering not entering law school anymore, because obviously it’s their dream and not mine. and if i allow that to happen, puta that’s four more years under their command. if i start to work, that’s like money for myself, a place for myself, a life for myself.

… or maybe i’m just too sad about the concert right now coz one band i love so much is playing and i’ve been waiting for this concert for months now.

.. sorry for the rant.

Waiting for forever.

Dear you,

For the second time around, I find myself staring into darkness. Sitting in the middle of land, vast land, surrounded by thousands and thousands of water. Watching as each wave meet with others, carrying stories from across the universe. The shattered stars illuminate, gracing such wonder upon me, a lonely being in the middle of nothingness.

I ask you to not worry about me, for I know that I am never alone.
Somewhere, in some other place, the same stars cast their wonder upon your beauty. Somewhere out there, the same ripples of ocean lead to wherever you are. Somewhere, the same time today, you’re also somewhere, in the middle of nothingness. I feel we are connected, connected separately, for destiny’s still crafting the story that would be ours.

But i know soon, we will be together.
We will be under the same stars,
staring at the same vast ocean,
lying on the same warm sand,
Touching. Feeling. Loving.
We will be with each other soon.

But for now we remain connected separately,
waiting for nothingness to finally mean forever.

Love,
Frankie.
