Today is the birthday of German author, Cornelia Funke. She has been selected for many honors, especially for her Ink-Trilogy, the first book of which is Inkheart . Although her first professional role in publishing was as an illustrator, she was “a very bored illustrator,” and…
What I bought for my birthday! I’m too excited for ‘Damned’, can’t wait to read it. ‘Reckless’ is my first Cornelia Funke novel. I know, I’m buying the ‘Ink Trilogy’ soon.
Let us call him A. Just cause his real name starts with an ‘A’ like mine.
Okay.. I know you guys saw the picture with the picture of Jim and me together with a poem from Lang Leav, this guy up there is one of my colleagues at work.
He’s that guy who plays the drums and is in a band. He’s the guy that has a lot of tattoos and gets judge. He’s that guy you never expect to care. He’s that guy who got his ears pierced and got them stretched. He’s that guy who you thought has a lot up on his sleeves.
He got two wonderful little boys who looks so much like him. Yes, he got married at an early age. He and his wife broke up. He has a girlfriend right now too.
But that does not hinder me from liking him. Last few weeks we’ve been spending time together. It’s either fooling around and about the city, having coffee, chilling with a friend and have some burgers and beers and talking what nots at the office. I told myself that I shouldn’t like, waste my time or talk to someone like him. I was proven wrong.
Last Friday, while having beer, he talked about his life without me asking. I was listening until I had a thought, “You could never judge someone without knowing his whole story.” Most people I know judges him and I’ve thought about it why. I never got to the answer. All I know now is that, they don’t really know him at all.
Anyway, that Friday night, he suddenly went to the topic where he and a common friend talked about me. He told our friend who asked him about his thoughts about me, he said, “I like her.” And hearing that I just laughed and I looked at him, he looked hurt. I know he shouldn’t have said that. But I was, am, happy he did.
I shouldn’t even be feeling like this, he’s still married to his wife though he’s working his way to an annulment, he has a girlfriend and he got kids! But I like him back. I wanted to tell him. But I don’t want to get hurt. I don’t want mess too. I think this is just a fear after all that has happened to me in the past. I’ve guarded my heart too well and now I’m afraid to share it to someone.
By the way, he likes how I smell without trying to impress him or anyone. :)
Something cheaper than Moleskin and a fountain pen. At least I could get to write again and have a little place for all my thoughts. #BlankJournal #Pen #Thoughts
reblogged from my other blog. 😁
I feel like this is how he feels everytime he’s near me and brings his nose to my shoulder and say, “You smell so lovely to me.” love you A

The Top 10 Nelson Mandela Quotes on Education
- Young people must take it upon themselves to ensure that they receive the highest education possible so that they can represent us well in future as future leaders.
- Not a day goes by when I don’t read every newspaper I can lay my hands on, wherever I am.
- Without language, one cannot talk to people and understand them; one cannot share their hopes and aspirations, grasp their history, appreciate their poetry, or savour their songs.
- No country can really develop unless its citizens are educated.
- Education is the great engine of personal development. It is through education that the daughter of a peasant can become a doctor, that the son of a mineworker can become the head of the mine, that a child of farm workers can become the president of a great nation. It is what we make out of what we have, not what we are given, that separates one person from another.
- There are certain precautions you should take to prepare yourself for a fruitful study career. You must brush up your knowledge through systematic reading of literature and newspapers.
- Discussion sharpens one’s interest in any subject and accordingly inspires reading and corrects errors.
- Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.
- A good head and good heart are always a formidable combination. But when you add to that a literate tongue or pen, then you have something very special.
- One of the things I learned when I was negotiating was that until I changed myself, I could not change others.
And one more to make you smile: ‘Appearances matter — and remember to smile.’
Ugh I wish this was real! 😥
