Poetry, anyone?

Tonight, I’m unleashing my inner Edgar Allan Poe. haha. For those who doesn’t know, Edgar Allan Poe was not only an author but was also a poet. An exam of a poem he wrote was “Annabel Lee” which is still my favorite piece. I learned it (believe it or not) when I was still in kindergarten. My teacher made us perform it during a school event.

Oh and before I share the things I made, I want you to read the poems I saw from Tumblr. These are all from one blog. I stumbled upon this blog last May? And I fell in love with the posts ♥ I could somehow relate to them.

These are my favorites. Credits to writinqueen. There are a lot of posts like this on Tumblr. I want to share those posts I like too but I can’t find the direct links to the owners. That’s why I only chose the posts of Julie Martinez 🙂

So the following are the things I wrote (no wait, I really didn’t write the first one. It was a line from Awkward, that’s why it’s credited as “J.H” as in Jenna Hamilton at the end of the first one :))

This school year…

I’m going to…

{Photo credit to WeHeartit}

I know you guys have read/seen this quote on Tumblr or on Twitter a million times already but guess what? This will be one of my mottos this year

Like what Kelly Clarkson said “I’ll spread my wings and I’ll learn how to fly. I’ll do what it takes til’ I touch the sky. And I’ll make a wish. Take a chance. Make a change, and breakaway” I have started spreading my wings starting the last half of sophomore year. It sort of stayed like that the whole of junior year and I even thought of hiding under a rock again. But I’m like, nah. I already had made progress. Haha.

Starting this year, I will join any activity. Haha. I wanted to join activities ever since freshman year but after the one that happened in Great Minds Meet, that’s when I decided to not join any contest and stick to sitting in the bleachers HAHA. Whatevs.

Oh, and just so you know, my shyness has ruined a lot of good opportunities. 😦 So yeah. TAKE EVERY CHANCE,   DROP EVERY FEAR. 🙂

High school wasn’t meant to last forever

I can’t believe I’m officially gonna be a senior on Monday. It hasn’t really hit me yet. Oh, and by the way I saw this post somewhere a long time ago. It goes like this (I changed some of the words just so I could relate, and some of you would too haha):

Senior year is unlike any other. Here are a few things you should know.

It won’t hit you when you wake up for your last first day of school. It won’t hit you as you walk into the hallway for the first time as an official senior. It won’t hit you when you get a “soul” (It’s a thing in my school when you’re a senior). It won’t hit you when you cheering your heart out in your last sportsfest. It won’t hit you when you’re filling out countless college application forms. It won’t hit you when your singing boring Latin and christmas songs during Cantata. It won’t hit you when you go to prom (or in my school, Banquet). It won’t hit you when you attend your last camp. It won’t hit you when you have a good time during Batch Night. You don’t realize you’re going to graduate in a month while you’re defending for your thesis.
But you begin to realize it in graduation. It’s the time you look around and realize you will never see half of these people again. You will begin to see it more over the summer when everyone is packing their bags, putting down posters, almost emptying their closets. It still hasn’t fully hit you when you’re sitting in your half-empty room, about to leave the house you’ve lived in your whole life. Probably, you’re laughing with your best friend about all the stupid stuff you’ve done. And next thing you know, you’re already in your dorm, getting class schedules, going to orientations. That’s when it will hit you. When you’re sitting in your dorm room with a stranger you have to live with for the next 4-5 years.

That’s why you need to make every moment of your senior year count. You will only get to do it once. College will be a lot of fun, but in the mean time, jump at every opportunity you get. Do anything thatt you have ever wanted to do live prove your teachers wrong and get beyond high grades. Spend as much time with friends as possible. For it will not be long until you meet new people and inevitably grow apart.

To be honest, I’m really scared of senior year and the future. I’m afraid of facing senior year because
1. My batchmates are going to take over. They’re gonna be ministers. Most of them were my classmates and I’m really afraid they might change.

2. I haven’t made amends with one of my friends I had a misunderstanding with sometime this summer. And I’m really nervous what will happen on Monday HAHA We may be still friends after, or not. Que sera, sera. And note to self: Ignore. Just ignore what ever bad thing will happen. Oh and I did my part (or I think I did)… anyway erika pls don’t let yourself down and by the words of Zayn Malik, I quote “Don’t over think, just let it go”. Lol.

3. On Monday, if ever my friends decide to eat and hang out during breaks in the upper bleachers, I’m afraid I’m gonna eat alone again. Like what happened last year. I told them I didn’t like it there because I don’t like heights. But then, some of them even made fun of me. I hope it’s still funny when you’re in hell. And no one even bothered to check up on me. They just went down AFTER they ate. I didn’t even finish my lunch because a trashcan was near me and some boy batch mates were looking at me and I think they pitied me. No, no, guys. You got it all wrong. I HAVE FRIENDS (or I think I have friends), I just didn’t have lunch with them bc they’re being inconsiderate. HA HA. OKAY.

4. WHAT IF I FAIL CALCULUS OR PHYSICS…. OR FOR THE FIRST TIME P.E WH A T I F
5. What if I get placed in the “hell” part of school a.k.a the main building. *knocks on wood* I RLY HOPE I DON’T WTF
6. I don’t like things to end. Really.

I’m really afraid of the future because
1. I am really afraid. I’m excited but then again I’m scared.

2. Because what if I don’t get in one of my dream schools?!

3. Or worse, what if I get in one of my dream schools and what if after I graduate, I don’t get a decent job

4. WHAT IF NO ONE FALLS IN LOVE WITH ME AND I END UP LIVING ALONE WITH 40 CATS

5. OR WORSE WHAT IF I BECOME A HOBO

I just… I’m nervous, scared and excited for everything right now. Really.

P.S: I included a new category. “Senior year” haha. Obvsss, I won’t be posting things under Junior year anymore 😛

All I know is you held the door

Can I just talk about the Everything Has Changed music video?! I just ASDAKDHGA. I NEED A MOMENT. Haha. I totally flipped yesterday when I found out there was a music video of this song. This is my 2nd favorite song from Taylor’s Red album. FYI: I like her songs but that doesn’t mean I like her. Sorry not sorry. This music video is really cuuuute. I totes wish I had a guy best friend when I was younger and I wish we “liked” each other. But nope, I didn’t have one. I  don’t even have a best friend, guy or girl. Haha. Sadlyf.

Y’all need to stop what you’re doing right now and watch this music video. I don’t want to spoil the ending, but it sorta made me kilig… even though I don’t like Taylor. BUT I LOVE ED SHEERAN OKAY. No, no, I LOVE HIM TO DEATH. HELLYEAH. If I had to choose between Ed Sheeran and the entire male population, I’d pick this Ginger for crying out loud. He’s so perfect and I just want to hug him and tell him he’s so perfect and I just love him with every fiber of my being… Hopefully someday when I meet him.

Here are some screenshots. Haha. Credits to the owners. x (Ooohhh and I placed them in order *wink wink*)

All I know is we said “hello”. And your eyes look like coming home.

And all I feel in my stomach is butterflies
The beautiful kind, making up for lost time,
Taking flight, making me feel like

I’m feeling like I’ve missed you all this time. Ohh.
And meet me there tonight
And let me know that it’s not all in my mind.

We got the beat

As promised, here’s the post about the 80’s movies I watched for the past few weeks. (See, even the title of this post is 80’s-ish.)

Here’s a quick story about why I decided to do an 80’s chick flick/highschool movie marathon. There was a quote in the movie, Easy A which was:

“I want John Cusack holding a boombox outside my window. I wanna ride off on a lawnmower with Patrick Dempsey. I want Jake from Sixteen Candles waiting outside the church for me. I want Judd Nelson thrusting his fist into the air because he knows he got me. Just once I want my life to be like an 80′s movie, preferably one with a really awesome musical number for no apparent reason. But no, John Hughes did not direct my life.”

So I googled John Hughes and then read the wiki page about him and the rest was history. Since l devoted my summer last year watching Friends (which began in the 90s) and watched a few 90’s movies, I thought I’d watch 80’s movies for a change this summer. Especially that my parents were 80’s kids (Wait, I think they were already teenagers in the 80s…). Anyway, I wanted to know what movies they watched, the actors they fangirled/fanboy-ed about and the bands they listened to.

First off, I watched The Breakfast Club. I watched this sometime in 2012, though the quality wasn’t that good since I watched it online.
This movie is about 5 teenagers who come from different backgrounds, different cliques, who spend their Saturday having detention. Their personalities clashed first, but they became open to each other (with a little help of marijuana). You know, if this was set in the present time, the characters wouldn’t even bother being friends. They will all just bring out their phones and text. Lol. Anyway, this has got to be my fave Brat pack movie! And you guys should watch it too. Heh. Oh and Victorious did a parody of The Breakfast Club but called it The Breakfast Bunch. Haha.

The next movie I watched is: Yes, Sixteen Candles. It’s about this girl, Samantha who turns 16 but her family forgets about it because they were all busy with her sister’s wedding the next day. Then, a series of unfortunate events happen to her the rest of the day. And then, there’s this guy named Jake Ryan who waits for her outside the church on her sister’s wedding. Then, they celebrate Samantha’s birthday with a cake and a kiss. It’s a pretty simple plot but if you look at it, it’s pretty sweet.

Next, Pretty in Pink. Fun fact: I thought Duckie was Michael Hall before I watched it then I found out the role was only offered to him and Jon Cryer was Duckie. Okay here’s the whole movie summary. This girl Andie isn’t rich. Her mother left both her dad and her. Andie works at a record store and one day sees a hot boy, Blaine. The next day, Blaine chats Andie asking her out. Oh and by the way there’s a character named Duckie who is Andie’s bestfriend. Duckie likes Andie but Andie likes Blaine. When Duckie finds out Blaine asked Andie out he convinces her he’ll only leave her but he failed so he storms out the store (by the way before that he had an awesome dance scene). Fast forward to the prom scene. Andie went alone because Blaine and her fought earlier. Duckie sees Andie and decides to escort her but then he decides to let go of Andie and make her chase Blaine. In the end, Blaine and Andie share a kiss. Thus, the end of Pretty in Pink. I’m sorry if you didn’t understand? I skipped a few scenes haha. Just watch it okay? 😛

Some Kind Of Wonderful. Fun fact: I thought Molly Ringwald was in the film. While watching the movie, I looked for her. Only to find out she’s really not part of the cast. Summary: Watts considers Keith as her best friend. Keith asks most popular girl out. Watt realizes she has feelings for her best friend. Popular girl’s boyfriend causes trouble for Keith because he didn’t want to lose his girlfriend to a loser. Oh and the end Keith leaves Amanda for Watts and giving her the diamond earrings he originally bought for Amanda.

Weird Science. This movie has a really simple plot and makes me laugh because in reality, you can’t really make a perfect girl out of a floppy disk. Nevertheless, Geeky Anthony Michael Hall never fails to make me laugh… (and sort of fall in love)

Johnny Be Good. IN THIS MOVIE YOU CAN SEE FETUS ROBERT DOWNEY JR. Hahahaha. Johnny is this beyond amazing football player and there were a lot of universities asking him to play for them. There were a lot of offers and the universities used his friends and family so Johnny would choose them. In the end, Johnny decides not to go to the big universities and just play of the State Uni. Oh and in this movie, Anthony Michael Hall isn’t a geek anymore.

Say Anything. FETUS JOHN CUSACK WHO FALLS IN LOVE WITH A SMART GIRL NAMED DIANE. DIANE’S DAD WANTS THEM TO BREAK UP SO DIANE GAVE LLOYD (JOHN CUSACK) A PEN TELLING HIM TO WRITE TO HER.. OH AND THERE’S THIS SCENE WHERE LLOYD WAS HOLDING A BOOM BOX OUTSIDE DIANE’S WINDOW. THIS IS ONE OF MY FAVES OKAY BECAUSE OF THE QUOTE “I gave her my heart and she gave me a pen” BECAUSE SOMEHOW I CAN RELATE TO IT SOMEHOW OMFG.

Somewhere In Time. This movie hurts my brain??? Because of reasons I don’t want to talk about because it’s freaking too complicated to explain here. It’s like Back To The Future but without the romantic shiz going on between the characters and it doesn’t involve a flux capacitor and a DeLorean that needs to go on 88 miles per hour to work. This movie is bittersweet because Richard dies in the end but yet reunited with Elise. I don’t even know why I downloaded this because we have a VCD of this. Haha.

Last is, Can’t Buy Me Love. I’m really lazy to tell the whole summary. You can either watch it or read the summary yourself. But all I can say about this film is that this is where Patrick Dempsey rides a lawnmower with a girl. Hahaha. Yes. And since I’m going to be a senior this Monday, I want to make the last year of high school big too. So umm, should I hire a popular boy to be my boyfriend? HAHAHA. KIDDING.

Okay that is all. I watched a few more like  Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Back To The Future, Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Dirty Dancing etc. But I’m too lazy to include all of it here. Sorry. There are a lot more great 80’s movies there, not only the ones I mentioned. Just google it haha. I really hope you guys could watch these amazing movies. 🙂  x
