Half-Hearted

martyr

It’s really hard to be in this situation

Two people, fighting for my love and affection

If only I could choose both so no one will get hurt

But I don’t want to be seen as someone who is flirt

My heart can only choose one but things are complicated

I really like both of them and now I’m half-hearted

But I have to choose or else, I’m going to be really unfair

But I can’t reject one because for the two of them, I care

Letting one of them go is really hard for me to do

But my love can only belong to one and not for two

I’m really sorry if things have to end this way

That the other one has to go and only one can stay

First Love

love

I could still remember that very day

The day you took my breath away

When our eyes met, my heart skipped a beat

There’s no doubt, I’ve been swept off of my feet

I really wanted to ask what is your name

But I’m still a stranger to you, I might sound so lame

I’m even more worried, you might think that I’m insane

That would just send all my hopes all the way down the drain

So I decided to just look at you from a distance

I don’t care anymore if to you, I don’t have a chance

Just seeing you here is already a blessing in disguise

Enough to launch in my stomach, thousands of butterflies

Then, you looked my way and put up a beautiful smile

My world suddenly stopped and everything was immobile

My knees turned into jelly, my heart sank to my belly

I just can’t believe my first love just noticed me

Years may have passed, but her smile still lingers in my heart

And to my memory, she occupied a very huge part

I may not have seen her again, but I just can’t erase her in my life

Because I’m still hoping we could end up as husband and wife

Survivor Series: How To Survive a Math Exam?

We just finished our finals examination in Statistics just a few hours ago and boy, it was very difficult… It was a 55-item multiple choice type of exam but it was still very difficult. Even though we already have a cheat sheet (our professor provided it), throughout the whole exam, it was only a little of help.

That’s why I’m here to give you tips on what to do during the Mathematics exam.

Tip No.1 – Scan the pages. Familiarize yourself with the test paper. Look for the items that you know you can answer. It gives you an assurance that Β you will not get a zero in that exam which could actually boost your confidence and morale.

Tip No. 2 – Don’t stay too long on an item. If you don’t know the answer, just skip it and come back later if you still have time. This tip is very important especially when the exam has time limit. It’s a must because why are you going to stay for too long to a particular item that you are not sure how to answer when you can go to other items that you might be able to solve. If you waste your time, you might miss the good ones.

Tip No. 3 – Don’t give up. If you really don’t know how to solve it, play with the numbers and if you came up with something that’s near a possible answer in the choices, then go for it. It’s better than having that item blank.

Tip No.4 – Trust your instincts. If you really know that you can’t solve it or you can’t come up with something, this could be one of your options. But first, you must analyze the problem. Look for clues and if you think that’s the answer then that’s it. There’s no harm trying it. πŸ™‚

Tip No. 5 – Last but not the least.. hahaha… the power of C. Are you guys familiar with it? Well, it’s just simply answering the letter C if you don’t know the answer. This could be your last resort. My friends told me that among the letters A-D, the letter C has the highest possibility of having the correct answer. Why not? Especially if there’s only two minutes left and you still have a lot to answer. But guys, remember, use this sparingly. It’s not the case all the time. πŸ™‚

So that’s it. Those are my tips on how to survive your Math exam…. Well, these are just mine. Maybe you have your own rituals… πŸ™‚

But always remember to review and practice before an exam. This would equip you with the weapons that you’ll need during the battle. πŸ™‚

For those who are having exams today, well, good luck! I do hope that you can pass them. Also, don’t forget to pray.. cause He’ll definitely guide you all the way.

So goodbye for now! See you on my next blog post. Have a nice day! πŸ™‚

Nineteen…. Twenty…..

For some, twenty may just be a number

But for me, twenty days from now is a day to remember

Because it was the very day that I was born

But I really don’t know what to feel, I’m actually torn

Good Day, Everyone! πŸ™‚

Ughhh! It’s exactly twenty days before my birthday and to be honest, I really don’t know what to feel. Of course, I’m happy, don’t get me wrong. I love birthdays. Who doesn’t love birthdays? (Maybe you?) Okay, maybe not everyone, maybe most? But it’s the very occasion that celebrates life, a thanksgiving for another year that you lived through. Definitely, a gift from God.

But sometimes, you can’t help but feel worried because you’re already getting old, which means more responsibilities. It was like a friendly reminder for you to grow up already. No more playtime… 😦 But that’s the cycle of life.. we need to move on. We can’t be forever young… We should just enjoy life and live it to the fullest. Let’s do things while we still can.

Okay so I may be nineteen already twenty days from now but after a long reflection, I really do think that I’m still young. Maybe I just over-reacted. πŸ™‚

So guys, mark your calendars, May 11. It’s my birthday! Don’t forget to send me your gifts! I’ll be waiting for it… Hahaha.. Just kidding!

P.S. A box of chocolates or pizza would be enough… πŸ˜‰

That’s all, guys! See you on my next blog post! Have a great day! πŸ™‚

The Good Old Book

IMG_20150421_003415

Covered in dust, by the little corner

Where the light is dim, it gets darker and darker

Feeling so depressed, it’s like I’ve been forsaken

Nobody remembers me, I’m totally forgotten

My clear white pages, through the times turned into yellow

My pictures suddenly faded, been filled with sorrow

I’m torn and my precious pages, already falling apart

But there’s nothing I could do and it breaks my heart

Until came a girl, lost in the library

Been strolling around and there she found me

She slowly picked me up and handled me with care

Finally, I’ve been freed out of my seemingly nightmare

Update: Thirty Followers and A Versatile Blogger Nominee

Good day, everyone!

I would just like to thank everyone who has followed my blog, I really do appreciate it. Having thirty followers is more than enough for me because all I want is to share my talent to people. You just don’t know how happy I am with your likes and nice comments which inspires me more to write poems.:) Again, thank you! πŸ™‚

Last Monday, my dear friend and co-blogger Sophie Kat nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award. Thank you, Sophie! πŸ™‚ So I’m here to tell you seven facts about me. Read it if you want to get to know me more.

1. I really like Winnie the Pooh ever since I was a child. Even though I’m already eighteen years old, I’m still a fan of him and I have a collection of Winnie the Pooh stuff toys at home.. πŸ™‚ (A little childish but yeah…)

2. I’m really picky when it comes to food… These are the things that I haven’t even tasted yet in my whole life.
– crab
– oysters
– squid
– octopus
– clams
(I only tasted shrimp ones, but mostly it’s seafood that I’m really not fond of)

3. I’m from the Philippines and I’ve never been able to go overseas. I really wanted to visit and have a vacation on other countries like the USA or maybe Singapore… France? (Can you suggest other places?)

4. I really like to eat Italian food like pizza and spaghetti ( or any pasta except pesto and seafood marinara) I so love them that I could eat them all day. πŸ™‚ By the way, my favorite pizza is Hawaiian pizza. Love the pineapples…

5. I got hit by a car ones… luckily I survived… I was only twelve when that incident happened. I was really scared back then… just imagine yourself under a car… it’s a really terrifying experience.

6. I only started blogging because it was a class requirement but then I learned to love it and up until now, I’m still blogging. Yey! πŸ™‚

7. I’m into caps and bonnets.. I actually have three each and I wear them alternately at school. My favorite one is my panda cap which I bought from Baguio here in the Philippines… πŸ™‚ (My prof got curious and asked me why I always wear something on my head, he just concluded that it was some sort of my security blanket.)

Well, that ends this blog entry. By the time you read this.. maybe you get to know me a little better… If only I could write a hundred facts about me why not? But it only required me seven so that’s it. Thank you for reading and have a nice day! πŸ™‚

Crush-ed

IMG_20150414_193120

This is my lucky day, I happen to sit beside my crush

Suddenly, my heart’s racing, like Β on a few meter dash

When she looked my way, I can’t help but blush

Then she smiled, so sweet, I’m having a sugar rush

Β Suddenly, I panicked, what I am going to do?

Β Just greet her a simple “hi”, will it be okay?

Because I can’t think of anything else to say

Or should I ask, “how are you?” or “how’s your day?”

But I might sound nervous, she might not even look my way

So I muster all the confidence I needed to get by

I told myself, now or never, Β it’s do or die

And when I was about to greet her with a “hi”

She stood up, left, and my “hi” turned into a “goodbye”
