  • Jake, Matty and Awkward

    Posted on September 23rd, 2012 brenna No comments

    I found this new addiction. I started watching Awkward because it had Ashley Rickards in it. I love Ashley since I watched her in One Tree Hill. And when the plot sounded interested, I started to download the series. I couldn’t even stopped and went through 1 season and half of 2nd season when I should be sleeping.

    You see, Awkward is about a loser type of girl, Jenna, who fell in love with a popular guy, Matty who kept a relationship with her in secret. It was adorable at first, but when the popular guy’s bestfriend, Jake also fell in love with Jenna, things were different. You see, while Matty was the playboy type, Jake had a girlfriend in season 1. He was the steady kind of guy. He was a good guy, basically, while Matty played the bad guy. Normally, I’d root for the bad guy. I usually do, because good guys are boring. Stefan (Vampire Diaries), George (Hart of Dixie), Ben (Secret Life of the American Teenager), good guys are boring. So, to my surprise, by second season, I was actually rooting for Jake, even if Matty’s smile is adorable and he has a hunky body. While Jenna obviously still has feelings for Matty and that may never go away, I do think Jake is good for her.

  • Genesis 8:7-12 – What Does This Phrase Say? #PrayforthePhilippines #Philippines

    Posted on August 7th, 2012 brenna No comments

    For those who are too lazy to check it out:

    Genesis 8: 7-12

    Noah sent out a raven. It did not come back, but kept flying around until the water was completely gone. Meanwhile, Noah sent out a dove to see if the water had gone down but since the water still covered all the land, the dove did not find a place to light. It flew back to the boat and Noah reached out and took it in. He waited another 7 days and sent out the dove again. It returned to him in the evening with a fresh olive leaf in its beak. So Noah knew that the water had gone down. Then, he waited another 7 days and sent out the dove once more; this time, it did not come back.


    This phrase is particularly essential today, because it is August 7, 2012 or 8-7-12, as what the quote says.

    And currently the Philippines is undergoing some major calamity all throughout the central regions. After raining for almost 10 days straight, today, 90% of the Metro, plus several other provinces nearby including Rizal, Zambales, Bataan and Pangasinan all experienced flooding and heavy rain. Major dams have opened its gates, causing water to overflow. Currently, most of the central Luzon is still underwater. This marks the worst flooding since the fateful Ondoy which only flooded specific parts of the Metro.

  • Ondoy 2.0: The Feelings of an Ondoy Survivor #PrayforthePhilippines

    Posted on August 7th, 2012 brenna No comments

    I am so scared at the moment. At 7.39am in the morning, the country’s been going through 9 whole days of rain and I am so scared. I can’t stop moving, I can’t stop thinking. I can’t stop picturing what I remember. I can’t stop remembering. I can’t stop fearing for the worst. Fearing for the day that my family will have to experience what I experienced during that fateful September 26, 2009 on the day of the Ondoy flooding, wherein I was trapped with a friend’s family and far from my own.

    I’m with my family now, but when I looked outside to the raging current of the river, I am scared. I am scared of what’s going to happen. I am scared of what this rain is capable of. I am scared for my family, my two young brothers and my parents who have never experienced this kind of flood in their life.

  • To the Girl in Love With a Man Who Doesn’t Love Her

    Posted on July 4th, 2012 brenna 37 comments

    love letter


    Hey girl in love, 

    I know it’s really hard to be in love with someone who doesn’t love you back. I know how much you suffer because every time you try to move on, but then you see him again, everything comes rushing right back in. I know because every time you look into his eyes, you fall in love all over again. I know it’s hard.

    And I know it hurts.

    And I know it’s really hard to hear your friends tell you how much this person is great or not great just to make you feel better. I know how hard it must feel every time we tell you this guy is an a-hole, because deep down, you believe he’s the best guy you’ve ever known.

    I know how disappointed you are every time he comes into the room and it’s not you he looks for. But still, when he lays his eyes on you, I can feel you melting right then and there.

    I know how many times, you wonder, are you even pretty or beautiful? Because why doesn’t he love you? I know how insecure you get just because he didn’t choose you. I know how hurt you are because when it comes to him, you double think your confidence and you can’t help but believe you’re ugly.

    I can tell when you’re lying. Every time you say you’ve moved on. You’re lying because whenever we go to a restaurant where he hangs, he’s the first person you look for – even if you try not to show it.

    Every time you’re online and you’re supposed to be working. Instead, you go on Facebook, checking his page out for any updates. If that wasn’t enough, you even check out his Tumblr and Twitter too, just in case he’s posted anything that you might be able to answer. Ahh. The chance to talk to him.
