Debutante

The most awesome people in my life (though they're incomplete)

The most awesome people in my life (though they’re incomplete)

 

Yesterday, June 21, 2014, I had a party. It was the traditional debut of a girl who turns 18. I didn’t want one, but I had one. I hated the idea of spending so much money on me. But my parents wanted this for me, so I went for it. That, I guess, must be the last decision I didn’t make for myself. Anyway, despite the fact that I didn’t want this, I did have a lot of fun, even if we did it the traditional way.

Though I didn’t get to see my friends and cousins for most of the night, seeing their photo booth photos makes me feel like I’ve been with them all along. Their heartfelt messages for me were so sweet and tear jerking! I hated them for making me cry! As for the dashing gentlemen who danced with me, they chatted with me, and that gave me a good feeling!

Though the event didn’t go the way I wanted it to be, I’m happy that I made my parents decide for me this time. 🙂 Hey, I got loads of bags, shower gels, lotions, and perfumes! And when I say loads of bags, I mean it. But this is my favorite gift of all, from Ms. Patricia Bonayon:

I didn’t love everything about the party, but I was (and still am) happy. Thank you to all of those who made this possible!

Ready, Set, No

Thank you, UP, for giving me two more months to prepare for the deadly college life I’m going to have. Because with all the college stuff that my friend and other ex-schoolmates are going through, I don’t think I’ll ever be ready for college, especially that I know I’m in the wrong course. Things are just scary to me. I don’t know what to do or feel. Oh life, you go on whether I’m ready or not.
