I have yet to apply Inkwell to my collection of mundane pictures. So, let’s play a game, shall we? Can you guess what object it is that I shot and edited with Instagram?
“Merge” is a most fitting word for this change I have welcomed. In the last few weeks, there have been a “merge” of two stubborn personalities, of two cultures, and of two lives. My husband and I have just started, yet I can’t help but feel that Japan is really one of the best settings for our beginning.
My feet took me to places where my heart have always wanted to be
At your side, by your side… to be bound to you eternally…
As I was about to call it a day on my 28th birthday, this showed up in my e-mail.
Last 2011, I “celebrated” my 27th in a new country… thinking I had no one to celebrate the day with.
Wow. Has it only been just 3 months?
I do feel like I’ve changed quite a lot in just the past three months. I am certainly not living the life of what that control-freaking 15 year old was mapping out in sheets of yellow-hued paper, marked with red and blue ink.
I no longer wonder why people keep coming back to that island. It was neither Palawan nor Bohol. But, Boracay Island can certainly boast of being the most commercially comfortable among all these beach beauties.
So with a plan (thanks to the Internet!), a backpack filled with clothes, a wallet stuffed with a few bills, and a stern resolve to enjoy what Pundaquit has to offer, my friends and I whisked our Manila-weary selves to Zambales (and all its promises of doom)!
We dwell often on things that make us feel bad for ourselves, making us miss those many wonderful blessings we get everyday.
For the past eight years, I’ve been waking up at six or seven in the morning almost daily with a bitter mood, dreading what the day is about to bring.
In medicine, we usually check on a list of criteria to determine whether a certain patient was sick with a very important syndromic disease (e.g. infectious endocarditis, Huntington’s, APAS and the list goes on).
So, I figured why not do the same for my future boyfriend/lover/husband?
Rule for Diagnosis:
You can only be Ivy’s future boyfriend/lover/husband if you meet:
2 major criteria + 1 minor… OR 1 major criteria + 3 minor.
