MASK

She woke up not feeling like herself, but she goes on her day like everybody else.

She has this mask to hide the loneliness she’s feeling inside. 

At the end of the day, she goes home all alone, takes off her mask and lie and stare at her bedroom ceiling.

NEGATIVE VIBES NOT ALLOWED! 

  

I am taking my current journey with a much more positive outlook and happy thoughts, leaving all the negatives behind and moving forward to a good life.

I’ve lived with negative outlook for so long that I drown myself with it. But thanks to a realization that really hit me in the head big time, I changed that negative thinking to positive. I have realized that this negative feeling is the thing that is holding me back to move forward, it’s like a heavy luggage on my shoulders. 

I have realized that all of those doubts are just in my head, I’m making all this delusions. 

I always remind myself to just think positive and everything is gonna be fine. In a world full of negatives you need to be the one bringing that positive vibes. In a world where you feel you can’t rely on anyone be that person to lift yourself up. And in a world where everything just feels so wrong be that right.

Negative vibes are not allowed on my journey take it somewhere else.  

APEC

This year’s Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) is held in our country Philippines. This is a forum where leaders from different country that is included in the said forum will have a meeting to discuss different economic issues, this is a big opportunity for my country to attract more foreign investors to invest in the Philippines.  

But being the host of this forum has also brought some inconvenience to our fellow countrymen especially when it comes to the traffic. Some roads are closed due to this forum to make our VIP guests to travel along the city with ease. They opened a special lane exclusive for the delegates.


Philippines is known for having the worst traffic and with this APEC thing going on it just doubled that traffic problems. But I think we Filipinos should just try to endure the suffering for a while because this forum is a BIG opportunity for our country, Philippines will truly have a big advantage through this because from what I can see there are more poor families here than those who are fortunate, try to have a little bit of understanding because from what I observed through social media is that most of us are complaining with this APEC because of the inconvenience but thinking that’s why our president declare that there will be no classes/work for 4 days so that you will not be stuck in that traffic or be affected with inconvenience brought by the on-going forum.

The only disappointment here is that the government can only create this “vendor-less” clean city everytime that there’s a special or VIP guest coming here in our country, it’s like putting a show or having a rehearsed recitation in class. I hope our country can maintain that clean city even without special guests. 

COFFEE?

Let’s have a cup of coffee…


If we were having coffee right now… I would probably tell you more about my school life, how it’s been going great so far, I would tell you that I am very excited to finish my college and find a job after.

If we were having coffee right now… I would tell you that I just had a great day with my friends and I’m also looking forward for the 4 days no classes this week.

If we were having coffee right now… We would probably talking about the tragic happenings around the world now and the on going APEC.

If we were having coffee right now… I would probably ask you if you have watched No Escape, because I just watched it recently and I really loved it.

If we were having coffee right now… I would have asked you for a suggestion for a thesis topic because I badly need one right now as I will do 2 research papers this semester.

If we were having coffee right now… I would tell you that I am happy with my life right now.

But If we were really having a coffee right now… I’d probably asked more stuff about your life rather than share mine.
