“I wonder if you know yet that you’ll leave me. That you
are a child playing with matches and I have a paper body.
You will meet a girl with a softer voice and stronger arms and she
will not have violent secrets or an affection for red wine or eyes
that never stay dry. You will fall into her bed and I’ll go back
to spending Friday nights with boys who never learn my last name.
I have chased off every fool who has tried to sleep beside me
You think it’s romantic to fuck the girl who writes poems about you.
You think I’ll understand your sadness because I live inside my own.
But I will show up at your door at 2 am, wild-eyed and sleepless.
and try and find some semblance of peace in your breastbone
and you will not let me in. You will tell me to go home.”
Something funny from me, for all of you!! Have a nice sunday! xx Agnes
We both can’t figure out which is which because we’re confused of what we really want to do in the future. All we know is that all of our dreams will not stay as it is. We’ll study and work hard together.
Ina and I were best friends since fifth grade and we’re both lucky to have each other. I admit that we’ve gone through a lot of ups and downs but it didn’t stop us from putting effort in our friendship. She keeps on reminding me that friendship is something that you put your heart on without expecting to get anything in return.
I’ll be back on track this school year and I’m so excited to shift course. From Bachelor of Arts in Filipino to Mass Communication. Everybody knows how much I love singing, acting, dancing, writing, and browsing random things; which is why I called myself an all around junkie. I appreciate colors more than anyone else but I am not blessed in terms of drawing. On the other hand, Ina will give herself a break from all of the family issues she’s been through. Next year, she’ll study at my university and will take up Bachelor of Science in Legal Management.
My friends and relatives keep on telling me that I should take care of my academics because I am my mom’s heiress of the company. At first I didn’t take it seriously and instead took things light and selfishly. No one can blame me for my parents didn’t have enough time to spend with me alone. But then I realized, there is no one else in this world that my mom could trust aside from me. She may be a strict mentor, but she’s a dedicated woman. All of her employees and trainees love her. She is remarkable and excellent in all aspects. Obviously she wants it perfect not because she’s meticulous but because she’s taking care of the company’s reputation. Once something fails, everything will also fail.
While Ina plans to work under her uncle’s administration at P&G. She told me that she wants to be an event organizer and interior designer, too. She also asked me to be her companion because I have sources when it comes to photographers, videographers, editors, etc., I suggested that we both study professional photography, video editing, and interior designing. We both love to travel so we might as well dwell on to it.
I’m so thankful that God gave me the most beautiful, talented, understanding, and loving best friend. I may have a lot of friends around me, but no one could ever compare to Ina. She’s the best that I got and I have no plans to lose her. 🙂
