Goodbye Tatay

Standard

My mom and sister called me at 2am while I was sleeping, They have told me my grandfather passed away after 2 days of being confined on the hospital because of Emphysema. And also worsened by his Diabetes. We was bedridden most of the time
since last year because of his deteriorating health.

After I got off the phone with my mom and my sister, I couldn’t sleep anymore. All my memories from when I was a kid till the recent times that we were spending time together came back. Now that he’s gone, it wouldn’t be the same at home anymore when I visit.

I would always remember him scolding me about my dumb decisions in life and always reminded me to do my best with what I do, He’s been very proud of us and my Dad as we all graduated college which what he really wanted.

I will miss you a lot and I hope now you’re free from pain and suffering. Thanks for all the good memories “Tatay”.

Learning a new language

Standard

It’s our Semester break at Grad school already and I’m thinking of studying a new Language. I’m choosing between Spanish and Japanese. (I took basic classes on Japanese already in College but I really want to learn more). I’m looking for a good resource on where I can start and also start practicing with my friends. 🙂 Any suggestions are welcome.

Just be Friends

Standard

Just Be Friends
All we gotta do is Just Be Friends.
It’s time to say goodbye, Just Be Friends.
All we gotta do is Just Be Friends.
Just Be Friends, Just Be Friends.

Early morning yesterday it finally occurred to me.
Just like a puzzle where I had placed every single piece.
And now I don’t know what to do-
Now that I see what we’re both moving to-
Is this the point in time where we both prayed and hoped we’d be?

Somehow I knew that from the deepest reaches of my heart.
The hardest choice would be the choice that tears us both apart.
And now I know I can’t ignore-
All the feelings that I’ve felt before-
I wonder why I never tried to tell you from the start?

Here in the world of ours that’s slowly falling all around us
We’re trying to move on, but it’s the best we can do.
Our happiness fading- And smiles evading-
The truth within the lies.

Now all I hear are screams between us
resounding and bouncing the echoes throughout my mind.
Nothing is left, nothing remains at the end of the line.
At the end of our chain, we’ve both run out of time.
So was it fate that brought us together
only to remind us that love’s not forever?
I said, ‘You know, that’s how it goes.’
‘That’s just the way that life is.’
So no regrets, baby don’t fret.
You know I hate to see you cry.

Last Night a quiet moment helped me bring my thoughts around.
No sense in picking fallen petals up from off the ground.
This flower’s past its bloom-
And you know that we can both assume-
Our time is gone, let’s move along.
It was never meant to be.

Don’t you remember the first summer it was all worthwhile?
Every moment that we spent together made you smile.
Arguments we won’t recall-
With no regard to how we felt at all-
Our words were cruel we played the fool.
The end is on out minds.

And with every single day that passes slowly by us.
There’s nothing I can do, nothing I can do for us.
I will always love you and I’ll always think of you.
But I have to tell you now.

Oh, somewhere deep in my heart it’s raining.
The clouds are remaining to drown me away from you.
I’m driven, but I’ve had enough.
Our broken heartache’s still here.
It seems that no matter what, it simply won’t disappear.
The bond between us has finally broken.
There’s too much unspoken, we’re falling so far apart.
Goodbye my love, it’s done sweetheart.
Sayonara, it’s the end.
It is time to depart and we will never look back, my friend.

Oh, this one time, just this one time.
If I could make a wish upon a fallen star.
If it came true, I’d stay with you.
Always forever you and I together~

Now all I hear are screams between us
resounding and bouncing the echoes throughout my mind.
Nothing is left, nothing remains at the end of the line.
At the end of our chain, we’ve both run out of time.
The bond between us has finally broken.
There’s too much unspoken, we’re falling so far apart.
Goodbye my love, it’s done sweetheart.
Sayonara, it’s the end.
It is time to depart, but you will always be my best friend.

Baby it’s over for us now~
Just Be Friends~

New Year

Standard

2015 Just ended and now just starting  2016. Last year has been a lot of ups and downs. But what really stuck with me is that I realized that things would eventually fall into their places. Just keep doing what you need to do and focus on them. I’m sure 2016 would have a lot of exciting things ahead. And I’m ready for it 🙂

I would like to thank my family and friends that supported me and shared happy memories with me during the year. And I’m looking forward on creating new memories and experiences from this year.
