"Smart girls are the overthinkers, the insecure ones, the different ones. They know what the real world is like. They analyze every little thing in life. Why? To avoid getting hurt. To find happiness. They stay up at night trying to think about every possible situation to get through all the problems. They think too much. They trust fewer people. Their insecurity proves their respect toward themselves. Of course they try to live away from a drama-filled life. Smart girls know their worth. Now those are the ones worth keeping by your side."

Note to self:

What matters is what he’s doing about it, and what he’s doing about it is nothing. And if he’s doing nothing, you most certainly shouldn’t do anything. You need someone who goes out of their way to make it obvious that they want you in their life.

See? Stop it, Abbie. Whatever that is you’re doing. 

Ted Mosby and all the romantic shizz he says.

Finally watched the final episodes of How I Met Your Mother. I know, I know. I’m late. I just don’t want to “end” the series. I could not bear the thought of it ending and I don’t want it to be FRIENDS all over again but, who am I kidding, yeah it did. 

I was a sobbing mess. 

And they were all like…

And Ted was just…

Oh the feeeels..

Here are some of the best  quotes by Ted Mosby, who always believed in true love. 

But love doesn’t make sense. You can’t logic your way into or out of it. Love is totally nonsensical. But we have to keep doing it, or else we’re lost and love is dead and humanity should just pack it in. Because love is the best thing we do.”  —Ted Mosby, How I Met Your Mother Season 9, Episode 22.

Here’s the secret kids. None of us can vow to be perfect. In the end all we can do is promise to love each other with everything we’ve got. Because love is the best thing we do.” — Ted Mosby, How I Met Your Mother Season 9, Episode 22.

You will be shocked when you discover how easy it is in life to part ways with people forever. That’s why when you find someone you want to keep around, you do something about it.” —Ted Mosby,How I Met Your Mother Season 9 Episode 21: “Gary Blauman”

Actually, there is a word for that. It’s love. I’m in love with her, okay? If you’re looking for the word that means caring for someone beyond all rationality and wanting them to have everything they want no matter how much it destroys you, its love! And when you love someone y-you just don’t stop. Ever. Even when people roll their eyes or call you crazy. Even then. Especially then. You just- you don’t give up because if I could give up… If I could just, you know, take the whole world’s advice and- and move on and find someone else, that wouldn’t be love. That would be… That would be some other disposable thing that is not worth fighting for. But that is not what this is.” — Ted Mosby, How I Met Your Mother Season 9, Episode 17

Oh, Ted. You will always be my guy. Even if I hated you for a short time because of what you did to Victoria. But what the heck. You are still great. You always make it through things or go big for every girl you fall in love with. 

All that effort and romantic things. 

Okay. I’m gonna sweep up my broken heart pieces on the floor.

"Sad Song (feat. Elena Coats)" by We The Kings

With you I fall.
It’s like I’m leaving all my past in silhouettes up on the wall.
With you I’m a beautiful mess.
It’s like we’re standing hand in hand with all our fears up on the edge.

I have been busy making aide memoires for work so here goes:

BC05: What is the last book you read, why did you read it?

Last Friday, I’ve read two books and the last one was Easy by Tammara Webber. Easy was trending on my Goodreadsvaccount last year and it was on myvrecommendations too. So I downloaded it from TUEBL but forgot about it as I was hooked on reading series and trilogies.But by Friday, I was all out of ebooks to read and saw Easy.

I’m rating it 3 out of 5 stars. It was a simple read with *~kilig feels~* but not so much feels as my fave ones. I think I’m getting old for teen-ish stuffs and these cheesy love stories. Not bitter, at all.

BC06: How did you spend your last birthday?

I’m not really keen on celebrating birthdays because since grade-school, my birthday was just a usual day since it’s in the summer- no school and less kids around, you get the picture. So usually, it’s just pizza, pasta with the family and my closest friends. Basically, same thing last year. Pizza party with ze housemates.


BC07: Do you have a set-out path for your future yet?

Oh yes, I do actually. I already planned my “future” -setting up a vision board of my goals and the things I have to do to get through them. I just hope that I’d be motivated enough to push them all through. 

But I’m still open to changes. I’m still young, you know ;)

BC08: what’s the most embarrassing thing you’ve done lately?

Oh myyyy. This has something to do with work. It’s a short conversation I had with my boss which was really plain UGH that I just wished the fake wooden tiles of the office would open up, swallow me alive and never spit me back out.

"She is a year ago.
She is the ache in the empty,
the first time you changed your mind
and the last time you were sorry about it.
She is a city sleeping beside you,
warm and vast and familiar, streetlights
yawning and stretching,
and you have never. You have never.
You have never loved someone like this.
She is your first stomach ache.
Your first panic attack and your
favorite cold shower.
A mountain is moving somewhere
inside of you, and her handprints are all over it.
Here. Here. Here, you love her.
In the fractured morning, full of
too tired and too sad, she is the first
foot that leaves the bed.
She is the fight in you, the winning
and the losing battle
floating like a shipwreck in your chest.
When they ask you what your favorite moment is,
You will say Her.
You will always say Her."

I want to be that Her - your Her. 

BC04: Five Things You Are Looking Forward To

  1. Game of Thrones Season 4. Enough said. No scratch that. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH *pterodactyl screaming* Never been so excited my whole life just for a TV show! I can’t wait to see the Starks, the Tyrells and the Martells too! And my khaleesi and the love of my life- Jon ;)
  2. Books coming in soon! I’ve got this book ordered by Jack online because it’s not available here in the Philippines. It has to arrive 2-3 weeks from now. AND, a new Kiko Machine will be launched/released soon!! Rak en rol \m/
  3. My birthday is coming up. No, I’m not excited about getting a year older and being tagged “still free at twenty-three” HAHAHA But I’m planning on travelling alone to Baguio if my boss will permit me to have a “birthday leave”. I’m really praying that I can despite of the busy schedules that we have.
  4. THE FAULT IN OUR STARS SHOWING DATE! I’m going to see my OTP until the end of time- Hazel and Gus 5everr! And I know, I’ll be crying buckets. Anyone want to come with me, pat me on the head and remind me that they’re not real?
  5. WE THE KINGS LIVE @ SM NORTH SKYDOME! TIME TO GET CRAAAAAAAZY AGAIN! After The 1975 mall show, I badly need another dose of a concert where I can dance, jump and sing along! Plus, get to see the band dudes ;)

"I Need You" by M83

This is my favorite song from the Divergent Soundtrack. *~feelzz~*

Going down the dusty roads
We are cold and see-through

I need you

There’s a reason after all
All the things that I have done
Pump the blood and leave it alone
Anywhere you take me

See it all
Just go and solve it all

BC03: When you’ve had a terrible day, how do you deal with it?

First is music. I can’t live without alternative rock.pop/punk rock blaring. Or even soft, soothing senti songs.

Up next, terrible days call for a cup of sundae.

Sundaes/ice cream lift up my mood- tested and proven during the times I failed examinations during my college days. But now that I’m working, cutting my hair short or having it treated is also therapeutic. I don’t know why but maybe I’m thinking of washing or cutting out the bad vibes through
my hair. HAHAHA :D

A few calls to my closest friends is also necessary. It’s really nice to vent out feelings and hear what they’ve got to say. And calls > text, right? HAHAHA Such alazy ass when it comes to texting.

And last, but certainly not the least, pray. I pray a lot during terrible terrible days. Hope keeps us moving.
