Typhoon and Other Stuff

24 Aug

Oh hello, i'm back!

Hello Mr. Sun. I’ve seen you again. I never thought I’m going to be this ecstatic knowing you’re here. Hahaha. 😀

Well, if you’re a Filipino, you know what I mean. From Monday to Wednesday, our very own country, Philippines, had a visitor named Maring. Yeah, Maring was the name of the typhoon. It was raining cats and dogs on most part of Luzon. NCR suspended classes from elementary to college and most offices are closed. Wanna know why?? Well, it’s because of the FLOOD. And guess what, even my aunt’s house here in Pasay (where I am staying) was flooded. It was knee high so we’re stuck upstairs for two whole days. Anyways, since I don’t have work, all I ever did was read books. I’m addicted to books again.

I finished reading The Dork Diaries 1-5. I know, I am too old for that kind of stuff. But hey, I’m still a kid at heart. I love the character of Nikki. I can totally relate to her. I was one of the dorks way back in grade school and highschool. And well, until now, I’m still a dork. Like her, I was bullied by the popular girls at school.

I have my own diary too. I remember, I also have a crush on one of my classmates, G. We used to hang-out and went to library after class. I just miss him. Hahaha.

Aside from the Dork Diaries, I finished reading Cloaked, Bewitching and Towering by Alex Flinn. And now, I’m halfway reading The Siren by Keira Cass. I told you I’m now a book addict/compulsive reader. Hahaha.

Aside from reading, I’m becoming obsess with make – ups. Not that I’m buying it. Well, actually, I’m planning to have my own online shop and i want to sell make ups. Hahaha. But I know, I’m not good when it comes to business. But still I want to try. Hahaha. what do you think??

make up

Actually, the make up obsession started when I saw one of my schoolmates’ online shop. Well, she’s been in bizzzzness for almost 3 years and now, her customers are celebrities. I envy her. Hahaha. So started searching for wholesalers of make ups. Hahaha.But anyway, I still have to find another job because, our project will end this August 31.

That’s it for today, and I’m sorry for being so random today. Hahaha. 😀

Have a great day everyone.

Books Are On Their Way To My Place

30 Dec

With the help of Kuya Tom Baker, my wish of having lots of books are made possible. Of course with the help of his friend Carl Dorsey. Books are on their way to our place and it’s going to be the best gift I’ll be going to receive this coming year. Thank you Kuya Tom, Carl and the rest of the people who donate books and money just to make me happy. I don’t know how to repay your good deeds. I am overwhelmed because I met someone like you. We are all strangers at one point but now, you welcome me as part of your lives. And for me, you are all my family. My WordPress family. Thank you.

You can read Kuya Tom’s blog about the list of books and the compilation of songs (made possible by Carl). Just click the link International Priority Mail To The Philippines

Again, thank you and God bless you more.

Thank You Kuya Tom

29 Dec

I woke up this morning with an email from a friend named Tom Baker. I met him here in WordPress just a few days ago. We’ve been sending emails to each other ever since then. I call him Kuya Tom while he calls me Bunso Anne. Kuya means older brother in Tagalog while Bunso is youngest sister/brother. Since I am an only child, I feel like he is my older brother. He’s been helping me to cope up with my emotional problems and he makes sure than I am always fine. He’s been asking me not to tell anyone my address. I’m asking for book donations before I leave because of that I have to tell my address to everyone who wants to send books to me. He told me that not all people are trustworthy. And I agree with him. So to make it easier for me, he write a blog post about me and asks for some books. Instead of sending directly to me, you have to send it to him and then his friend Carl, will send it to my address. You can read his blog post for the details on how you can help me Good News Concerning Our Friend Anne .

To Kuya Tom, again thank you for all your help and concern. And I will never forget the things you’ve done for me for the rest of my life.

Much love,
Bunso Anne

Book Donations For Me?

28 Dec

Some of my friends are already asking where I am going. Of course, I can’t tell them because my Mom and I agreed that it is going to be strictly confidential (though some of my WordPress friends know where I am going). But because I am leaving and again, I am telling you I don’t have my phone and an internet connection there as well as television, I need another means of entertainment. I’m asking for book donations. I don’t know how many months will it take me to stay there so I am sure there will be times that I’ll get bored. Some are asking what kind of books I want.

Here’s the list:

• Books about Fallen Angels, Vampires, Witches (I already have Vampire Diaries, True Blood, Beautiful Creatures first two books, Hush Hush’s first two books)
• Beautiful Chaos (Third sequel of the Beautiful Creatures’ series)
• Silence (Third sequel of the Hush Hush’s series)
• The Hunger Games series
• Mitch Albom books
• Paulo Coelho books

If you have a kind heart, you can send it to me. Just send me an email so I can tell you the details of our address.

***Sorry for being pretty thick-skinned of me. I can’t go to bookstores now because I am stuck at my mom’s workmate’s place. I am not allowed to go outside. 😦

Leaving Soon

26 Dec

I’ll be leaving soon. Maybe on the first week or second week of January. I really don’t know. I’m going to a place where I don’t know anyone. I can’t tell you now where I am going. But I have a good reason for leaving. In that place, I cannot use the internet or phone. I have no source of entertainment except books. It’s a hard decision that I have to make. Leaving the life I am used to. Leaving my possessions so I can finally clear my head and heal my heart. I haven’t told any of my friends where I am going except for one whom I considered as my best friend. I have to leave. I need to leave. I need to find myself. I need to accept myself. I need to change for the better.

I won’t say goodbye ’cause I’ll be back soon.

PS: Since, books are my only source of entertainment, can you send/give a book that you’ll think will help me get through this life. A book that I can bring to that place. I hope this is not too much if I’m asking you for this. And please, do make a letter at the back page. Thank you.
