Cookie Friday

I’m feeling better now. Thank God.

Hooray for today! There are two reasons I’m happy. ๐Ÿ˜€ First of all, today’s Friday which means salvation! I never thought I’d agree to my mom about this but given any chance of no work days I will totally spend it on my bed sleeping or watching TV. I work five days a week, hell, I need a break. Wow. I’m starting to sound like an #adult. ๐Ÿ™‚ Another thing is the Girl Scout Cookies finally came in today. I ordered like three boxes of cookies and as soon as I got my hands on them I devoured it lol. You may not know it but I’m more of a cookie girl than a cake girl. ๐Ÿ˜›

Have a fun Friday!


Happy 4th WP!


Today is my 4 year anniversary with WordPress and I finally decided to register a custom domain name for my site. I was kinda thinking of registering it to my name but I digressed cause I mean I’ve been with this name ‘simplicityismymiddle’ for four years now. I’m sentimental, I know lol. So that’s all for now. Just dropping by to say hello and greet myself Happy Anniversary with WordPress! ๐Ÿ™‚


P.S. I’ll be posting a lot of Chicago stuff soon. :p

5am Thoughts

I woke up half an ย hour ago and can’t sleep since then even though I just drifted off 5 hours ago. Anyway, I decided to just open my laptop and see what I can do and this apparently is what I am doing right now.

It’s been more than a month since I came to Chicago. ๐Ÿ™‚ Yes, and I still have 12 months here to go. I’m not homesick and never was since I first came here. It’s weird? I don’t know. Maybe because this is what I wanted in my life since god knows when: to explore and be away with people I know. Don’t get me wrong, I love my family more than anything but for me it just doesn’t mean getting to see them everyday. I talk to them everyday, if you’re wondering. I’m loving my life here except well the weather lol. The first time I set foot outside the airport it’s so freakin cold I almost wished to go back. ๐Ÿ˜… But everyday, I learn to love and accept the abnormality of the weather here although there’s not a day I don’t say “Oh my god, it’s cold today”.

Anyway, that’s all for now. My moment for writing just flew out of my body lol.

Stealth Mode


Stealth Mode

          Mahirap nga naman kapag broken-hearted, walang nagagawang maayos, ni hindi mo maka usap ng matino. Ganito lang naman ang sitwasyon ni Jenny.

          Nag break kasi sila ng kanyang boyfriend na si Ken. Sa di sinasadyang di pagkakaintindihan na nag simula sa maliit na bagay na nag dulot ng hiwalayan.

            Mag iilang buwan na rin silang nag break. At ayon na nga, palagi na lamang naka tulala si Jenny habang hawak hawak ang kwintas na cross na binigay ni Ken para sa 5 years anniversary nila.

            Napilitan nalamang silang maging โ€˜normalโ€™ na mag kaibigan dahil sa iisa lamang ang barkada nila. Naging madali naman sa kanila ang pagiging magkaibigan na lamang, hindi naman magiging maganda kung mag kakailangan sila sa harap ng barkada nila.

โ€œAlam mo yun Maree? Yung ang sakit sakit ng nararamdaman mo? Na parang kina-cutter ang puso mo?โ€

Hay, eto nanaman tayo. Pabulong na sabi ng bestfriend niyang si Maree.

โ€œBest, kasi naman baka naman mas makakabuti ng nangyari to. Malay mo may mas karapatdapat pa kesa kay Ken.โ€

โ€œSiya nga ang gusto ko eh! Siya lang!โ€

            Paulit ulit lang nila tong pinag tatalunan, wala naman napupuntahan.

          Ngayong gabi habang nag fafacebook si Jenny, bigla nalang may nag pop-out sa babang kanto ng screen โ€˜skaterboss is now onlineโ€™

            Biglang kinabahan si Jenny at di niya namalayan na mabilis niya nang nauubos ang kinakain niyang corn bits yung original flavor, favorite niya yun eh kasi favorite rin yun ng teacher niya sa Filipino na si Mam Raynes, yung maganda at sexy.

            Halo halong emosyon ang nararamdaman ni Jenny pero nag lakas loob parin ito at na i-pm si Kelly.


simplicityismymiddlename: Hoy unggoy! Gumawa ka na ng assignment sa Filipino?

skaterboss: Unggoy ka dyan! Baboy! Haha. Meron ba? Pakopya na lang.

simplicityismymiddlename: Asa ka boooy! Di kita pakokopyahin, gumawa ka rin.

skaterboss: Tsk. Damot talaga nito. Bagay talaga sayo ang baboy! =p

simplicityismymiddlename is typing

Tse! Ikaw kaya ang bagay saakin!

OHMY! Erase erase

simplicityismymiddlename: Sama mo talaga kahit kelan!

skaterboss: *evil laugh* HAHA Sige na nga bye2 na at gagawa na ako, di mo naman ako pakokopyahin eh.

skaterboss is now offline

          Aww. Sad naman itong si Jenny at offline na si Ken. Hiling niya talaga na mag ka balikan na sila pero parang malabo na talagang mangyari yun eh. Pero pano nga naman nga ba sila mag kakabalikan kung walang gagawa ng paraan.

           Nang di namamalayan, bigla nalang nasend ni Jenny itong mga message kay Ken, tutal offline naman siya eh.

simplicityismymiddlename: Ken, mahal na mahal parin kita.

simplicityismymiddlename: Sobrang mahal, alam mo bang nalulungkot akong masyado simula ng magkahiwalay tayo hanggang ngayon.

simplicityismymiddlename: Miss na miss na miss na miss na kita.

simplicityismymiddlename: Will you still be mine?

simplicityismymiddlename: Tayo nanaman oh, si mam Raynes naiinip na.

simplicityismymiddlename: Patawad sa mga naโ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”

skaterboss: Ako rin Jenny, mahal parin kita. Sobrang mahal na mahal.

skaterboss: Alam mo bang parang binatohan ng paper weight ang puso ko araw araw, pati may seal ng Ateneo yung paper weight kaya mas mabigat, lalo na kapag nakikita kita at di man lang kita mahawakan.

           Nabigla naman si Jenny dahil sa hindi pala offline si Ken. Nahiya naman tuloy siya sa mga pinagsasasabi niya, pero wala na rin naman siyang magagawa, yan ang nararamdaman niya. Balak niya sanang sabihin kay Kelly na naligaw lang ang mga message na yun at di talaga para sakanya pero sa tingin niya ay di na siya makaka takas ngayon.

skateboss: Naka stealth mode lang ako, pinag mamasdan ko lang ang status mo. Namimiss kasi kita lalo kapag kachat kita.

Skaterboss: Sorry naging torpe ako.

skaterboss: Pwede ba tayo na ulit? Kahit ano pa gagawin ko. Miss na kita boss eh. Ikaw lang naman kaya ang pinakaiisang boss sa buhay ko.

What Is Going On?ย 

Pretending so much to be happy when I’m rotting on the inside. I don’t know what it is that I’m still asking for. I mean I already heard the good news and that alone should make me jump and scream of happiness. But no, instead I feel down. Maybe this is what they call graduation jitters. I’m scared for what’s ahead of me. I don’t see myself doing good in my life. I feel blank like uncertainty of what future holds.

Honestly though, I think I know the reason why I’m miserable at the moment. I just don’t want to admit it. But I’m fine, so much fine. So much that I could cry at any moment. I actually think there’s a lump stuck in my throat. I could be walking down the street and shed tears without any warning. I could be looking at the mirror smiling and crying at the same time yet no one will ever know it’s not tears of joy. I could look like I’m paying attention but I’m actually spacing out. Does that even sound like fine to anyone? ๐Ÿ˜‚ I’m going cray! 

I don’t want to be locked up in the house. My room isn’t exactly a therapeutic place either. I have dark orange curtains and a speaker that blares suicidal music so yeah it’s not helping. And I can’t go out at night just whenever and wherever I want. I’m not exactly a free bird. I mean I can be if I want to but the last time I did it, it was for someone and you know when someone doesn’t appreciate the risks that you do so you just stop bc you’re just human and it’s not like you’re asking something in return but a little love would be appreciated. But oh well, I’m done risking for a while. ๐Ÿ˜Š

This is getting out of hand. 

I wish to disappear. 

Good night. 

Bye Bye January

My Favorite Lines in WRE(Love,Rosie)

“What seems tragic now wonโ€™t even be an issue in a few years time.”

“Youโ€™re only 17. You and Alex have the rest of your lives to catch up together . . . After all, soul mates always end up together.

“Things are too perfect. It almost feels like the calm before the storm.”

โ€œIโ€™m over the moon of course but you know the saying, โ€œIf it ainโ€™t broke donโ€™t fix it.โ€

โ€œIrreconcilable differences. Isnโ€™t that what people always say?โ€

โ€œIt was a million little things that all finally blew up in their faces.โ€

โ€œAnd who needs Paris, when you can get a hug?โ€

โ€œIf thereโ€™s any love there at all then you should work at it. Every small thing grows when you nurture it.โ€

โ€œThe men in my life may have let me down but the little girl in my life makes up for it every single day.โ€

โ€œItโ€™s nice to find a hobby, something that excites you and makes you look forward to the week ahead instead of constantly dreading days.โ€

โ€œYou have betrayed me at a time just as I had learned to fall in love with you all over again.โ€

โ€œLife is far from perfect, for everyone.โ€

โ€œIโ€™ve discovered that no one, not even the big man upstairs has the slightest clue as to whatโ€™s going on.โ€

โ€œYou really are my moonbeamโ€”guiding the way for me all the time.โ€

โ€œDonโ€™t be so pessimistic. Soul mates have a way of finding their way to each other.โ€

โ€œIt seems that every few years Iโ€™m shoveling up the pieces of my life and starting from scratch all over.โ€

โ€œMarrying someone you donโ€™t love is not right.โ€

โ€œHome isnโ€™t a place, itโ€™s a feelingโ€

โ€œYou can put me with a guy thatโ€™s perfect in every way and too good to be true and Iโ€™m still not ready.โ€

โ€œIt doesnโ€™t feel right to love the world and see such brightness when something so awful has happenedโ€

โ€œA bit of ink on her skin doesnโ€™t tarnish the goodness or dim the brightness that shines from herโ€

โ€œNo. I have a shit job with shit pay, a shit flat with shit rent. I have no time for shit sex with a shit manโ€

โ€œWell Iโ€™m not with the man for conversation am I?โ€

โ€œHere we go, in a fortnight weโ€™ll both be free.โ€

โ€œBecause if I donโ€™t follow this feeling right now who nos where I will be twenty years on from now.โ€

โ€œToday I love you more than ever; tomorrow I will love you even more. I need you more than ever; I want you more than everโ€

Where Rainbows End (Love, Rosie)

My first read this 2015. Where Rainbows End by Cecilia Ahern. I totally enjoyed reading it. Like seriously in love with them Rosie and Alex. The first time I read it was when I was about to sleep and I felt so torn and connected with the Rosie I could not sleep pondering about it. I don’t know why but it felt like I was Rosie and it’s my life laid out in there and there I was reading it openly. It’s like a warning and a preview of what will become of me. I love it. Really liked the book I can’t stop complimenting. Sorry! It’s just that I haven’t read this kind of good book in a long time. ๐Ÿ˜ญ

Here’s one of my favorite lines that Rosie said:

Life is funny isnโ€™t it? Just when you think youโ€™ve got it all figured out, just when you finally begin to plan something, get excited about something, and feel like you know what direction youโ€™re heading in, the paths change, the signs change, the wind blows the other way, north is suddenly south, and east is west, and youโ€™re lost. It is so easy to lose your way, to lose direction. And thatโ€™s with following all the signposts

Totes recommending this book! There’s a movie adaptation to this book titled “Love, Rosie”. But first! Read it! โ˜บ๏ธ

Good Bye 2014 ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

2014 has been one helluva roller coaster ride for me! Too many to mentioned things had happened but alas, I survived it. Thanks to those people who were there for me in my desperation times. I’d like to give you a million thanks becuase I wouldnt be what I am right now if it weren’t for your help. Thank you so much!

I love you Mom, Dad, bros, sis, friends and love ones.

I hope 2015 will be better for me and for all. Good luck to us!

I can finally close another chapter in my life. Cheers to a new year and another chance for me to get it right! ๐ŸŽŠ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‹

I miss this ๐Ÿ˜–

Hello Readers (if there’s even any) ๐Ÿ˜’

I’m back!!!

I might have been gone for almost two months because of a certain reason. But I was still writing everyday and now that my blog is back in public, almost all those that I’ve posted these past months have turned private. ๐Ÿ˜Š

I missed visiting my page and viewing my stats! ๐Ÿ˜‚ And reading posts and liking good articles ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ and sharing my own personal rants! โ˜บ๏ธ But I’m happy at the same time cause I was able to attain some peace of mind. ๐Ÿ˜œ Haha alright now I’m not making any sense. ๐Ÿ˜Š Enough.

Merry Christmas to y’all! I hope you had a good one! I MISSED YA FELLAS! ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜

Let’s all welcome 2015!!!!! Just four more days. Imagine that! ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

Serene Night

Serene night? ๐Ÿ˜‚ More of like freeze-to-death night. Haha here’s what I’m talking about:

9-ish pm

On our way home from a road trip(2 hour travel time), I decided to ride in the back of the pickup car. I mean I’ve always wanted to do it you know. It’s actually one in my bucketlists so I just crossed off another thing! Yay to that. So going back, I was only wearing short shorts and tee shirt no jacket whatsoever but I didn’t care and still gave it a go. I plugged in my music and enjoyed the trip.

30 mins after…

I’m loving the night sky! It’s full moon and the sky so lit up. And the wind daamn cool.

1 hour after…

Uhmm. Wait…the cold’s starting to creep up my skin. I think a blanket or whatver clothing would be much appreciated at the moment please. It’s starting to get cold!

1 1/2 hour after…
Holy shit I’m numb. I can’t feel my hands anymore! ๐Ÿ˜‚ Good thing we had a stop over. My mom bought a coffee cause she was starting to get sleepy. Told her I wanted a black coffee too but it’s not available so…

At the moment…
I’m still cold af. ๐Ÿ˜‚ I didnt go inside the car though. I can’t give up now I’m finishing this battle bitches. Besides! I’m kinda used to this kind of situation anyway and I totally love it. 30 mins to go before home. It’s 10:15 now and fingers are numb. How in the world can I still type these words is beyond my comprehension. ๐Ÿ˜… I see we’re entering the city now, more cars and lights to see but no more trees and creepy shadows! I still like it more when in suburban. Damn I just wish this journey would be forever.

Time’s up. Finally home.

Rainy Morning

Rainy morning everyone! I woke up to the sound of pouring rain. ๐Ÿ˜Œ One of my favorite ways of waking up.

I’d rather not share what happened last night as it would ruin the whole sentinental mood of my morning. โœ‹ Instead I’m looking forward for this day. Me ๐Ÿ˜‡ dont have to go to the school because I don’t have a scheduled exam for today. Yay, right?!

I have to go somewhere though. I have to buy some things. I have to go to the doctor. Ermm what else? Study for my another three exams for tomorrow. That’s probably all. ๐Ÿ˜Œ

I just hope it’s rainy all day. I don’t mind if it’s gonna get me wet. ๐Ÿ˜ I just love rain, don’t cha? ๐Ÿ˜

Begin with a positive attitude today and smile at all times. You can make someone’s day with a simple smile. โŒฃฬˆ
