I am Number 22.
Well, technically, i turned 22 today. Thanks to my friends who insisted on doing a little celebration. I love you guys.

But as I grow up, I realize that a birthday is not just about myself. It’s about celebrating who you have become and reminiscing what you have done.

Who have i become?
That’s quite an interesting question. I believe i have become stronger, learned how to be a fighter and to stand for what I believe is right. I have become wiser: I have learned that nothing and no one can stop you if you are determined to do what you want to do and to be who you wanna become. You just need to know how to get through all the struggles and hopefully wish that in the end, everything will be all right. And if it’s still not all right, it means that it isn’t the end yet so we need to keep our fighting face on.

What have I done?
This year, instead of a big celebration, i decided to just be selfless. Sharing my blessings to the people who need it most is the best celebration i can ever imagine.

Today, I’ve signed up to become a sponsor for a child’s education in the Philippines. I signed up with World Vision. I believe that education will be the best weapon someone can have to face the harsh realities and struggles of life. I value education very much and I know tht not all people are as blessed as I am, so why not share mine to them? I will be a child’s (I am yet to know who) sponsor for their education for as long as the child needs it. I know i can stand by this for this is a kind of pledge that I have been contemplating to do for the past couple of months.

I am just thankful that organizatons like this exist. If they can do it, I am more than willing to do my fair share. I am encouraging my friends, blog friends, random people to do the same. It’s quite a small amount to share but it can go for miles.

I was taught by my alma mater to teach minds, touch hearts and transform lives, well, this is just the beginning. Happy birthday to me 🙂

STUCK WITH THE VILLAIN

You’re some kind of metaphor
The kind which no one could understand.
But when we met, I tried
I tried so hard to decipher you.

I’m some kind of light.
The kind that shines on the darkest hour.
When we met, I smiled
I smiled and gave up all my light for you.

But I think it’s wrong
It’s wrong to love you so much
Ooohh, not so much.

I am the apple of your eye
Shoulder when you cry
I’ll give up everything for you
I love it when I love you but
Stop thinking that you’re loving me enough
‘Coz what you can’t see
Is that you’re loving yourself more than you’re loving me

We’re some kind of hero
Trying to save each other from our villains
I never get tired of protecting you
Until I realized I have to brawl with you too.

But I think it’s wrong
It’s wrong to love you so much
Ooohh, not so much.

You are best days of my life
But ironically, my hero in disguise
I’ll give up everything for you
I love it when I love you but
Stop thinking that you’re loving me enough
‘Coz what you can’t see
Is that you’re loving yourself more than you’re loving me

I hate it when I’m feeling all crazy about this
When the only reason I cry each night
Is when I don’t know if you still love me as you loved me before
I hate to tell you but, stop.

Stop thinking that you’re loving me enough
‘Coz what you can’t see
Is that you’re loving yourself more than you’re loving me
Stop thinking that you’re loving me enough
‘Coz what you can’t see
Is that you’re loving yourself more than you’re loving me
And that’s where we’ll gonna be.

Stuck.
