200th post! It’s like it was just yesterday when I’ve reached 100 posts and now I’m up to 200! I apologize for all the delays I’ve caused though, school has been getting the best of me and that’s the reason why I haven’t been postin’ lately. Anyway, I’ve got to thank all my 154 followers! Thank you so much for supporting me in my endeavours of inspiring a part of the world in chasing their dreams, holding on to hope and drifting away from society’s endless demands! You’ve all been awesome and as promised, I’ll share you a very personal part of my life, a short background of “How I Met My First Love”. And since, I’ve entitled this blog article something completely not relevant to what I’m gonna post it, well, just bare with me! :) (Just so y’all know, the supposed title of this blog is 3 Times The Charm Part 1, but now I’m thinking of changing it to “How I Met My First Love) Well here goes…
How I Met My First Love
My love life has been one of the most influential and saddest things that have ever happened in my life and to tell you honestly, I’ve never had a girlfriend but I have fallen in love. Thrice. All of ‘em were failures but in each one of them I’ve learned a lot starting from patience, maturity, space and appreciation. In the first part of this chapter in my life, I’m gonna tell you my love story with Number 1 which we’ll hide by the name Maia. (Seriously, that ain’t her true name)
Maia was a very happy girl. She smiled a lot and often did stuff that made people happy without her probably knowing it. She liked horoscopes and it usually dictated most of her actions until even I believed in horoscope. At first, we didn’t actually talk but we did have eye contact. This eye contact we did was something we did to acknowledge each other and in all fairness, it made me really happy! It came to a point that I started to talk with her and I remember that the first phrase she told me was “Bungal ako eh!” (something like “My Teeth are not arranged properly”). I laughed and encouraged her to talk more until of course she left me ‘cause she told me she had this ride with somebody (which now I think was a lie ‘cause she’s a close friend of mine now).
Anyway, we had a bit of cliché talks everyday after that and it came to the point that I fell in-love with her. I don’t know how! I don’t know if it was because of her smile or because she was rather unique than anyone else, I dunno, maybe she just had the X-factor in her. Y’know that different feeling you have with somebody? That awesome feeling you have when you’re with him or her? Yeap, that’s the one. Moving on, I tried to ask if I could court her one time and it ended up in a bit of running spree. I chased her for like 3 minutes around the room and the corridors and I tell you, I’d like relive that moment all over again! It was definitely a different experience worth remembering. Sadly, things didn’t go well after that and after a year and a half, my heart suddenly stopped beating for her. I don’t exactly recall why but probably because we started developing into much better friends and if I’ve ever learned one thing with my relationship with her today, I might say that “Love doesn’t always end in a rejection, sometimes it may even begin because of it. Maybe not the love that you’re looking for, but a love that will also last forever.” As you’ve guessed, she’s currently my best friend and I doubt that’ll change any time soon!
And so that ends my 200th post! I hope to seeing y’all in my future posts! Also, as a bonus, I’ll be changing my theme and posting my new official mascot, the ”Rieikku” until the second version appears! Once again, I thank you for all your support! God bless and much love!
Once before in a distant past
I thought that my love for a girl would last
I was wrong though; in the most sincerest of ways
For now I find myself, pleading her case.
Back then this girl was pure in my eyes,
But now I wonder why she always pries
Maybe perhaps she was deaf and mute?
Metaphorically speaking, I think she’s extremely demure!
For once I thought she was my true love,
Yet now I see that she may have been numb,
For she ignored the effort that my actions display
Head over heels, I’ll make no more mistakes.
