Day 7 – Five pet peeves
Why only five? Haha. I admit it, I can be a high maintenance companion and I do have some pet peeves that can put be in a very awkward situation with other people.
1. Repeating things
When I’ve said, I’ve said it. I can’t repeat it for more than three times. Or I get super duper annoyed. Like I want to shake you or just punch you in the face. You can’t make me repeat something I’ve said for more than two or three times. It puts my mood off.
2. Asking me things and not believing my answer.
Like srsly? Why ask me in the first place? If you don’t trust me then ask somebody else. Don’t ask me.
3. People who makes plans to do things together but never goes through at the end of the day
So like, everyone, right?
4. People who thinks they have to lie to me
I would very much prefer for you to just tell me the truth, thank you very much. It would help show your remorse and that you have good intentions. I’m very accepting especially if you tell me the truth. I like honesty!
5. Freeloaders with faces as thick as their asses
This is especially at the office. Like, it’s okay if you don’t have any money to contribute to the team lunches. Tell us and we’ll understand. Don’t make it seem like you’re not like that but you totally are. Like, I also don’t know what I’m saying. Hahaha. This specific one is mostly an annoyance to a specific person. I don’t like unfair people.
Day 6 – Your views on mainstream music
I honestly don’t know what to say about mainstream music. What exactly is considered as mainstream music?
So according to urbandictionary.com, mainstream music is music that’s usually on the radio, Top 40 and is well known to the general public.
All right. Well that clears it up, doesn’t it?
Hmm, so mainstream music would be One Direction, Drake, Rihanna, The Chainsmokers, Ariana Grande, etc.?
I would think that music in the past year is much better than the previous years. Of course, there are still some that focuses on T&A’s but it’s much better now. It has meaning even though it’s not what it’s like before. I guess it focuses more on the beats and bass rather than the message. Compared to the previous years though, I think music is getting better again.
I only started listening to mainstream music when I started my job at Alorica. I focused my music genre on Big Bang before so it’s good to rediscover this stuff.
It’s catchy and all.
Day 5 – Things you want to say to an ex
I don’t have an ex lol. I haven’t even considered other people I dated B.M. (Before Mc) as exes. But the challenge did not really specify ex-boyfriend. So I’ll be writing to an ex-almost.
Fuck you. It was one thing to stain what we almost had but it’s entirely different when you betrayed my trust. I trusted you with personal things about me. What hurts is the fact that I thought that maybe, even if we couldn’t take whatever what we had to the next level, you would still have some sort of respect in me. That you would still value the friendship we had. That was enough for me but you proved that wrong last week.
You are by far, the most vile human being I have ever met. I’ve met a lot of people but you had no conscience. I just want to shake you and ask you what the hell is wrong with you.
I just expected more from you as a friend. That’s it.
I can accept a lot of things but what you did was too much. It just showed me how wrong I am for trusting you. How I should’ve trusted myself when my gut was telling me that you are someone I was supposed to stay away from.
I gave you the benefit of the doubt and you fucked with that. You fucked with the people that gave you that. Try fixing yourself for a change. Like really, really fixing yourself. I hate you so damn much. But I don’t care anymore. You are just so, so awful. Rot in hell and I hope karma gets you good.
Ahhh. Where do I start? When will I end? Lol
Day 3 – A book you love
Ahhh. Where do I start? When will I end? Lol
I met someone a couple of months ago and it was my first time sitting down with this person. Reading books excites me more than shopping or just plain going out. So expectedly, I asked this person about what books he loves. He mentioned some philosophy books that I have never heard of before and says he’s not into the YA kind.
I’m 20 years old and other than mystery books by PJ Tracy and Lena Diaz, I pretty much stick to Young Adult novels. I have preferences on the genre but YA all the way!
So this person, a year younger than me, said he didn’t like YA. That was okay for me. I could roll with that. I’m open to learning new things and I ain’t afraid of philosophy books. (lol!) But then, he said something that was so much of a deal breaker. Like I seriously cannot look at him after that. I even considered leaving right at that moment.
He said and I quote, “I especially don’t like Harry Potter. It’s a waste of time.”
*silence* I seriously wanted to use seven books of awesomeness to choke the guy. Suffice to say, I didn’t see him again.
So yes, a book that I always love talking about and I will always love are the Harry Potter books by JK Rowling.
I won’t probably be able to enumerate all the reasons why but my life was molded to the lessons I learned from reading the books.
It all started with a reading assignment when I was in 5th grade. We were supposed to read a book. No specific ones and submit a book report about it. So my aunt and I went to a bookstore and I bought the thickest book I found.
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.
Yes, the first time I read the books, it wasn’t in the chronological order. (I’ve read for a hundred times now xD)
It’s like the escape to Hogwarts from every book was what I needed. It sparked a light in my mind and showed me how imaginative and creative I can be. (Reason #1)
Lessons from the books does not need a deep analysis but it also wasn’t just there. I can’t put it into words, exactly, but I live my life largely influenced by what I’ve read and learned from the books.
From the friendship of the Golden Trio to Draco Malfoy’s upbringing. Let me try to enumerate some…
- Real friends will go through anything with you.
- Darkness never wins.
- Some people didn’t want to be bad. They just didn’t know any other way. (ILYSM Draco Malfoy!)
- Love always wins.
- It’s okay to be different because real friends will accept who you are.
- If you love someone, you can go through lengths to show it to them. (Always!!! *cries for Snape*)
- Parents will do anything for their child. (Praises to Narcissa, Molly & Lily!)
- There are many types of bravery. (Hi Neville & Snape!)
- Loved ones never really leave us.
Phew! I’m sure it’s not just that. There are many, many more. I love how the things they experienced on their extraordinary lives, we get to apply to our good old Muggle lives.
I can rave about this series all day.
Other books I love and learned a lot from:
- Tuesdays with Morrie
- One Hundred Names
- The Notebook
- A Walk to Remember
- The Female of the Species
- Perks of Being a Wallflower
- My Not So Perfect Life
- PS I Love You
- Falling into Place
- All the Bright Places
December, for most people, has always been something to look forward too. Year-end bonuses, the holidays, reunions.
Well, I’ve never been one to celebrate the last month of the year.
For me, it has always been the worst of those twelve months.
There’s the bonuses where will make you spend a lot of money and then feel incredibly guilty afterwards.
The holidays which left a lot of opportunity for space. In my case, that means space for cheating, for thinking of how I failed the first eleven months of the year and most importantly, for thinking if this is still what I wanted to do spend my time on next year.
And that has always been a bad thing.
So I propose a boycott for this awful month starting December 2017.
December, I will be ready for you next year and I’ll sure enough turn this month around for good.
