Valentine’s Status: Single and Waiting

Kay bilis nga naman ng paglipas ng panahon. Parang kahapon lang, nang una akong magblog dito sa WordPress ng tungkol sa Valentine’s Day. Ngayon, unti-unti kong naaalala na nakaisang taon na pala nang huli kong ipagdiwang ang February 14.

Ngayon sakto na apat na buwan na akong “Status: Single”, hindi nakapagtatakang bumalik ang damdamin na nararamdaman ko bago ko pa nakilala ang dati kong kasintahan. Ngayon, kaisa na ako ng mga nagnanais na mag February 15 na agad. At katulad ng ilang mga kasama ko sa Kapnayan, ay nagpapakasubsob muna sa aral, o kaya’y nagpapakasaya sa kasagsagan ng aming Foundation Week sa Adamson.

Sa totoo lang, kanina lang talaga napagtanto na bukas na nga ang Araw ng mga Puso. At kahit na itanggi ko man sa karamihan, na hindi ko ito iniinda, talagang hindi ko maiwasang maisip kung maipagdidiwang ko ba ng matino ang araw na iyon.

Ngunit ang mas nakagugulo ng isip ko, ay kung bakit sino pa ang matino – kung sino pa ang nagmahal ng totoo, at niloko ng taong minahal niya, siya pa ang nag-iisa ngayong Araw ng mga Puso? At bakit kung sino pa ang nanloko, ay siya pang may kapiling na ngayong iba, at masaya?

Siguro’y sadyang ganito lang talaga ang buhay: Hindi mo lahat makukuha. Ngunit may siguradong dahilan sa lahat ng mga nararanasan natin. Sabi nga sa isang patalastas sa TV “Bilog ang mundo” – at alam kong hindi ako mananatiling malungkot ng matagal na panahon. Kaya naman, hindi ko maipagdiwang ang Valentine’s Day ng may kasamang “special someone”, sigurado akong hindi ako magmumukmok tulad ng karamihan.

Konting hintay pa. :)

You’ll Never Know

T’was another Friday night
You’re all gloomy, with a sigh.
My worries push to ask you why,
And then, you hugged me as you cry.

At first, he hesitates to tell,
But I knew better, he ain’t well.
A lonely boy, trapped in a cell
In grief and shame, his damp face fell.

I knew, he’s never treated right.
Arguments each and every night.
He never shared, but clear in sight –
Each scars his heart had every fight.

I comfort him with words I say,
And pray’rs I have each waking day
Were prayers that come what may,
He had a ‘friend’ that’s here to stay.

I had to tell him but he bid goodbye
He said “We’ll fix this, I have to try”
And now I sat here, with a sigh.
Again, my chance had slipped me by.

The OxyToxin Madness

Last night’s Pre-Valentine’s Party/ PACSiklaban Kick-Off Party, organized by the Philippine Association of Chemistry Students at the IMS Tower in Sta Cruz Manila, would surely count as one of my most memorable experiences for 2013. Though I’m not really a party-goer (since I don’t go to bars often), I did enjoy the lights, sounds,the booze, and most especially, the fun time I spent with my Orgmates, and fellow Chemistry students who came with me to the party.

Having survived the Midterm Exam week, the OxyToxin event was my best outlet to unwind and have fun. Though, most of my sophomore classmates were absent during the event, I definitely had fun being with some of the Juniors and the Seniors who were there in the event – Guiller, Ate Shena, Ate Micah, Kuya Robert, Kuya Miggy, Ate Jel, Ate Racquel, and Ate Erika. Each of us had to state our relationship statuses at the registration booth, since we had to wear a specific color for the bands – blue/pink for Single, and green/yellow for ‘In a Relationship’. As for yours truly, he didn’t have to fake his status and chose a blue one.

As the hour passed by, the function room started to fill up with students from different member organizations, like UP KEM, UP BCS, UP ChemSoc, UST-Chem Soc, and Biochem Soc and the PUP ChemSoc. Four representatives from their societies performed on stage for a talent show, and there were games that were played in between performances. They even had a ‘BeerPong’ table at the corner of the function room, and an open bar at the middle of the party area.

Around past 11 in the evening, my fellow Chemistry students danced their way to the stage, and even my friend (a high school batchmate, who is a member from UP KEM) couldn’t help but imagine that his orgmates really do party hard. As for me, I was lucky enough to get home without getting very drunk!

Though, I didn’t come home with a date, or with someone to celebrate the Valentine’s Day, the fun-filled event was enough for me to enjoy, and to share that awesome feeling that I needed to experience once in awhile.
