I am at one with a sea of sensations, glitter, silk, skin, eyes, mouths, desire.

“Have enough courage to trust love one more time and always one more time.”
― Maya Angelou
I love the Lord. He heard my voice; he heard my cry for mercy. Because he turned his ear to me, I will call on him as long as I live.
She could never go back and make some of the details pretty. All she could do was move forward and make the whole beautiful.
~ Terri St. Cloud
Love is patient
Love is kind
Love does not envy
Love does not boast.
Love is not proud
Love is not rude
Love is not self-seeking
Love is not easily angered.
Love keeps no record of wrongs
Love does not delight in evil
Love rejoices with the truth.
Love always protects
Love always trusts
Love always hopes
Love always preserves.
That’s right, Kuya Heck. Humor me first before the real litany tomorrow. Apir! ;)

“Malinaw pong SONA ang matutunghayan n’yo ngayong hapon. Wala kaming in-advertise na laro o exhibition. Kung hindi n’yo po magugustuhan ang inyong maririnig, huwag umasa ng refund. Batasan po ang inyong pinuntahan, hindi Araneta Coliseum.” [Applause]

It’s that time of the year when the UP Fighting Maroons have to deal, again, with heartbreaking, nerve-racking losses. In the past season, the clamor for a single victory has not materialized. And as an incoming freshman of the University of the Philippines, I am writing this not to accept that we are the worst team in the UAAP because I firmly believe, even my own friends will never agree with me, that YOU are way better than that.
