Month: April 2015


April 23, 2015: It was almost 11 o’clock pm when I received a message regarding a one-day trip with my best frands. I expected that we’re going to have our own summer vacation trip but I did not anticipated it to be this early. Apparently, they are planning on going to Fontana Waterpark on April 24, which means at that time it is “tomorrow”. And we haven’t even planned properly yet. Besides, I am not sure if I’ll be able to come since I have a kind of parent who needs to be informed a week before the trip. Hahaha. But I guess that night was different. Yes! 

Finally, we’re able to spontaneously plan our long delayed getaway!



I want fresh flowers, a hand to hold, camping with friends, books I can’t stop reading, compliments that don’t call me beautiful, traveling to new and faraway places, big warm hugs, smiles from strangers, coffee, long walks, talks about nothing at all, tears of happiness, to go someplace where no one knows my name, to serve others, learn a new language, to take days off to do nothing, sleep in, dream while I walk.

I want to feel stronger, to forgive and forget, to love and be loved. I want to make people feel loved, to believe in themselves. I want to be grateful for the pain and for the growth that came behind it. I want to improve myself, grow, and learn and teach something to someone as well. I want to be there and I want to be here. I want to live full and happy and well.
