Can You Keep A Secret?

25 Jan

I just finished reading Sophie Kinsela’s Can You Keep A Secret last week. It’s kinda funny and I like the story. It reminds me of my secrets I don’t want others to know. Secrets I’d rather keep to myself than tell anyone. I have a lot of secrets. Secrets that I know others can’t keep to theirselves. I’m not saying I don’t trust people because that’s not true. I trust people easily but when it comes to secrets, i just don’t feel like telling it to others. That’s why my friend, Patrick*, told me I was a deep person.

I am not going to tell my secrets here. Cause you’re just going to laugh at me or pity me. I’m going to tell here one big secret that makes me proud of myself. I mean, just like Emma(the narrator of the book), a stranger told me her secret. She’s not really a stranger, but she’s my professor way back in high school. She told me a secret that only her close friends and family know. I, a stranger to her, know something that can change her life if I told it someone else. But that’s not me, I’m not going to tell it to anyone. I’ll tell her secret in here but I will not tell who she is, where she lives and any other details about her.

She told me something about her family. She couldn’t bear a child because her husband is infertile. They decided to adopt a child because they really wanted to have one. The big secret in here? Her son doesn’t know that he’s adopted.

So that’s it. That’s her secret. I don’t know why she told me about that. but it makes me proud that someone like her trsuts me. She told a secret of her family and like I said, can change their lives.

I’m good in keeping other people’s secret. I know a lot of secrets of my friends, family, etc. but this secret is someone that makes me feel I am worth trusting. 🙂

The Perks of Being A Wallflower

4 Jan

My friend named Fifi told me about this book. She’s been searching for this book for almost 2 months. She couldn’t find any copy because it’s always sold out. I also tried to find a copy of this book so I could give it to her. She really wanted to have this book.

So yesterday, I told her if she already have this book. She said NO. So without any hesitation I went to Mall of Asia. I went to every bookstore but still the book’s sold out. One of the bookstores finally told me that they made reservations. So I made my reservation. After that, Fifi phoned me that she already have one. Someone gave her that. And then, while I was talking to her, one of the bookstore’s staff called me. Guess what??? They found a copy of this book. One of their costumers canceled the reservation. They asked me if I want to buy the book. I said yes though Fifi had her own now. I bought one for myself.

This is the second book I bought this year. But this is going to be the first book I’m going to read for the year 2011.

I am happy to have this book. Maybe this book is really FOR ME 🙂
