I realized that I’m almost in my 20s and I haven’t even achieved half of the things my 12 year old self thought my teenage self would have.
I got a piercing today, something that I’ve always wanted to do.
I was in 2nd grade when piercings on boys became a trend and I remember telling my parents that I’d get a piercing when I grow up. 11 years and probably a million arguments with myself, I have not one, but two piercings on my left earlobe.
Idk but piercings have always fascinated me. Maybe it’s the misconception that piercings should only be for girls that I want to take a personal stand against, that made me want to get a piercing myself lol. I guess I’m just exploring and looking for my identity idk. It’s a bit late for that tbh, because I’m already 18 and the things I’m experiencing now for the first time have been experienced by other people my age when they were 12 lol
Btw my dad called and he’s livid at me for “demoralizing” my body and said he’d beat the shit out of me until my ears bleed if he sees me wearing earrings.
A week ago, I skipped NSTP class so I could go to my best friend’s debut. It wasn’t as grand as you’d expect (ffs she didn’t even know that there’d be a celebration) but we had fun, I swear.
Her college friends organized a programme and we, her high school friends, would’ve pitched in but it turned out that everything was set and all we had to do was turn up! Her college friends are fucking efficient, kanila na ang korona lol
(I just grabbed most of the photos from my best friend’s Facebook act sorry if they’re a bit blurry)
With her college friends hehe bugaw me pls lol half joke
Her parents have a beautiful house, I swear. It’s on the mountains (lol) basta maganda. They decorated their house with torches that her dad made! I would’ve asked her dad for DIY tips but I get easily intimidated by friends’ parents because most of them know my mom.
Was a bit hesitant about going to the gazebo because it reminded me of Alison DiLaurentis ffs
The celebration wasn’t fancy or swanky lol but that was exactly how we wanted it to be. Sobrang chill lang and low key idk I’ve always been intimidated by swanky parties and shit (which reminds me, I was invited to my pseudo-ex’s debut a couple of weeks from now, v swanky and I’m tempted to wear shorts)
Look at that pansit behind me ang sherep
I’ll fucking stab u
I look genuinely happy (and fucking bloated, hola, Coke) in this photo
Me and the girls watching my friends play beerpong. I don’t drink so I just sit and talk to girls at parties, no kidding. Btw my best friend’s mom works as a nurse for the Coca Cola company, so hence, the Coke cups + tons of bottles of Coke, which we used for Coke pong after the beer was gone.
With our high school friends. My best friend was famous in HS because she was on the school varsity team (jsyk I was on the spelling team hahahahaha) so most of these people weren’t on our year.
Breast friend with Ang, a friend from the team. A lot of people used to ask me if their friendship bothers me or if I get jealous that they spend more time with each other during training and stuff. Lol I’ll tell you the same thing I told them: it doesn’t bother me ‘cause I know Ang and she’s great, and she never hogs Gen all to herself, you know. Whenever they’re together, Ang never excludes you or shit. And I see how happy my best friend is with her, and that’s what really matters. Btw I like your watch Ang hello there
(The last one wasn’t a selfie I swear. I didn’t even know that they were taking a picture of me.)
And then her college friends arrived while we were singing on the karaoke lmao they had drinks with them and I panicked a bit because I DON’T FUCKING DRINK BUT I WANT TO FUCKING SOCIALIZE DO YOU SEE MY PROBLEM
Surprise surprise (hello Ecka bakit ang ganda mo hehe)
Wasn’t expecting that I’d be her last dance though!! Here’s a picture of us hugging because I never thought that I’d even go to her debut because we had a fight (which isn’t something that usually happens between us) and we didn’t talk for most of our freshmen year in college. I honestly didn’t think that we’d make up but she was fucking determined for us to be okay, and to cut the long story short, we made up.
My best friend for 10 years, thanking everyone. We’ve known each other since first grade because we’ve always been partnered for school activities and dances since we have the same height (yup maliit lang ako huhu 5’6 pahinging Cherifer thanks) but we didn’t become best friends ‘till 5th grade (well it happened in 5th grade for me though I think she realized it on 1st year HS.) We’ve been inseparable since. It’s a good thing that she studies on a school that’s only a 5 minute walk away from I do so we often see each other when she has time (lol sakanya naka-depende okay I’m willing to cut anytime)
And then the drinks were brought out lol they tried to pass a couple of glasses to me but I declined and said “I don’t drink even though it doesn’t look like I don’t” hahahaha I tried their chaser though. It was fizzy and tasted like bubblegum. Found out after 5 cups that it had a bit of alcohol in it so FUCK I MIGHT AS WELL DRINK
Obviously a bit drunk. IT WAS MY FIRST TIME OKAY.
Apparently this is how I look like when I find something funny lol fucking braces
This one was fucking blurred but you can see how happy I was at the background aye
We played drinking games lol. Started with the basic lol SPIN THE BOTTLE. Lol as I’ve said it was my first time to drink so I was dreading the times that the bottle pointed to me. Pero nung tumagal puta nag-enjoy na din ako. Hahahaha and then Gen’s friend, Von, taught us this number game where we had to do a dare if you blurt out a number at the same time with another person. Tangina, I love my best friend’s college friends hahahahaha
THE PINEAPPLE SQUAD lol in case you were wondering, we had pineapple vodka shit idk what theyre called pero masarap ok
I want to hang out with them again but it’s very unlikely since we go to different schools etc etc one of the best nights of my 2014 tbh
Tonight it rained way too hard again but it wasn’t as hard as last night. Jsyk I was drenched last night and I had to walk through ankle deep flood just so I could go home. Hay, Manila.
Listening to this song brought back feelings that you get when you’re deeply in love with someone. And I’m not even actually in love right now ffs that’s how good this song is.
