It has been a long couple of days. I shall write about it later. I’ve also noticed my tumblr has been pretty drab and depressing lately. Hopefully that changes soon because I’m beginning to forget how to be happy and what happiness feels like.
Family Matters Part 3
I was taking a nap when my dad got the call, lola (grandmother in Filipino) was gone. She died late Wednesday morning. I expected crying and an outpouring of emotions, but nothing. Everyone seemed alright, like nothing happened. I wasn’t sure how to feel or if I should feel anything at all. So we continued life as normal. My dad decided to call his sister, whom he and his brothers are not...
I never got to know you well. I grew up without you here. For most of my life, you were only a voice over the phone and the occasional picture or two. I was able to get through life without you, but why do I feel this way now? I met you for the first time 6 years ago, when you decided to migrate to Canada from the Philippines to be closer to your family. But instead of bringing us closer...
My dad came home and starts yelling at us for mentioning our dying grandmother and her condition to other people. He doesn’t want us to tell anyone and wants us to just keep it to ourselves. His explanation is because he doesn’t want to invite anyone to the viewing or funeral. I understand that he doesn’t want it to become tsimis, or gossip, but seriously what’s wrong with...

Growing up, money was scarce, but love was endless and unconditional. This article expresses all that I haven’t been able to express myself.
Family Matters Part 2
Part 1: http://ajneps.tumblr.com/post/792674335/family-matters I woke up this morning to my dad screaming into his phone. It is the call we have all been dreading, my grandmother is ready to go and be with our Lord. The call came from my uncle-in-law, as my dad is not on speaking terms with my aunt, his sister. He told us to make our last visit today at their house in Mississauga. My dad, my mom,...

Bro, just back off
Seriously, you’ve been trying for the past 2 years to no avail. Nothing has happened, what makes you think it will change now. I know we’re bros and everything, but isn’t it about time you just back off and stop being an annoying little prick and suck it up. Expand your horizons, or think outside the box maybe. I’ve tried helping you. I’ve been your wingman, but I...

It finally hit me
I took my graduation photos today and it hit me like the bus hit that bitch in Mean Girls, I’m graduating high school in six months. I remember taking my ninth grade picture like it was yesterday. I remember being the scared little niner freshman getting lost going from class to class. Now I’m here as a high school senior, done with my applications for college, paying my prom deposits,...
My mom has been wanting for the family to go ‘home’ for ages. I’ve been wanting to go too and I’ve saved up enough for a ticket and a good amount of spending money. For my brother and I, it will be our first time going, ever. Sure, we went when I was a baby, but I don’t remember a thing and going now would be like going for the first time. I really hope it happens...
Either way it's (s)exercise
So, my co-workers at the restaurant I'm interning at are trying to get in shape and they started the Jillian Michael's workout.
Amanda: I'm sore all over, but my calves are killing.
Brian: Oh you too? I'm dying too. *walking away*
Amanda: The way you're walking looks like you just had some rough anal.
Brian: Honey, that was last week's news.
