So umiyak ako kanina. Hahahaha. Isang oras talaga akong umiyak. Pero ngayon natatawa ako sa thought na nakuha ko pang magselfie kahit magang-maga na ang mata ko. Hahaha. Wala kasing mirror tapos gusto kong icheck ang mata ko dahil masakit na talaga so pinicturan ko na lang. Minsan2x lang ako umiyak kaya pagbigyan. After 1 hour, okay na ako. Nawala na ang maga sa mga mata ko. Hahaha. Pero I’m glad na ginawa ko yun dahil magaan na ang loob ko. At ang iniyakan ko, resolved na ngayon. :))
I want to cry.

Nagpapadistract man ako pero wala eh. Tagos talaga sa heart ang loneliness kasi sobra na. Hahaha huhuhu. Babawiin ko na lang to sa sembreak :))
Please don’t delete the link to the photographers/artists, thanks!
Alam ko na bakit lagi akong nag-iinvite ng laag these past few days.
What I lack at home I make up for it at school.
I’m always alone at home. Zero interaction. Although sometimes gusto ko naman maging alone, pero I don’t want to be lonely.
- Friend 1: Huy kumusta ka na! tagal na nating di nagusap ah!
- Friend 2: Okay naman ako. Ikaw? Kumusta ka?
- Friend 1: Okay lang ako Eh ikaw kumusta ka na?
- Friend 2: Tagal na nga nating di nagusap eh. okay parin ako. Kumusta ka na?
- Friend 1: Namimiss na nga kita eh. Oh, kumusta naman ang buhay buhay?
- Friend 2: Ayos na ayos ako, eh ang buhay mo? Kumusta?
1. You have to assert that you’re a grownup. All the time.
Your family will always think of you as the snotty little kid who follows the older siblings everywhere. So when you start to step up and prove your worth as a capable individual, they still doubt you. They probably believe you’re only out for trouble. Again. Like that one time you broke the appliances in a department store. Like that one time you fell headfirst while playing. Doesn’t matter if it happened more than a decade ago, you can’t possibly have changed, right?
It’s not like they don’t trust your skills and talents, but they just can’t see past the little girl (or boy) they’ve been taking care of forever.
2. You will always be doted on in public.
I used to cringe when my father calls me “Bunso” or “Buns” in public, but I have adapted to it by now. I just hope that no one I know is anywhere nearby. But when they do call me Buns in the company of friends and acquaintances, I try to keep a straight face and wait for the floor to open up and eat me whole.
3. You will never win an argument so just admit defeat.
You will always be wrong and your older sibling will, of course, always be right. What do you mean you already finished your bachelor’s degree and already on your way to getting your master’s? You obviously don’t know what you’re talking about. Just shut up because there’s no point arguing with the older sibling. How disrespectful of you to answer back!
4. You listen to your older siblings even when you don’t want to.
You really don’t want to get your older brother a glass of water, but one look from him and you’re scrambling downstairs to get that water. You can insist that you’re not a push over and you’re not created to follow their wiles and wishes. You can pout all day and stomp your feet in frustration, but you know you’ll still get that glass of water.
5. You can’t help but echo their opinions from time to time.
I really think that movie is great, but my sister doesn’t seem to think so. She can’t possibly be wrong, right? There’s probably something wrong with my opinion!
You grew up following their examples, and everything they say is the law. So when you start to form your own opinions, you can’t help but wonder if your ate or kuya agrees. Because if they don’t, you start to question your own judgment. It’s difficult to form your own mind about something when most of your life, there’s someone helping you with your own decisions.
6. You ask permission not just from your parents but also your older siblings.
They obviously have more say on what you do with your precious time. Before our dear parents decide whether to allow us to go to an outing, they ask ate and kuya first. Because what they have to say is a big deciding factor. Because they are the authority of fun and if they decide that you don’t deserve to go out and have fun, then you don’t.
7. You will always be the ugly one.
Older siblings will always find something to criticize about your clothes, no matter how carefully you put together your outfit. Even as you get older, you’ll still be called “pangit” even when you’re all dressed up. They’re probably just teasing, but no way in hell will they actually think you look great.
8. You feel like a responsible and dependable human being when they ask for your help.
Let me get a tissue because I think these are tears in my eyes. They actually trust me now? Did I actually do something right for once? The responsibility suddenly given to you can be so overwhelming that you’re challenged to step up and prove that you’re a valuable member of the family, too.
Despite our issues about being the youngest child, we know we don’t want it any other way. There are days when I have delusions of wanting to be the ate, so I can lord over a younger sibling, too. But at the bottom of my heart, I know that my family only do what they do because they love me.
I know that no matter what happens, they’ll always have my back.
Reblogging this not because I am a bunso, but because it’s Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman in that photo, y’all.
- I'm in my father's class at my high school. He said this today:
- Him: As some of you may not know, I'm a feminist.
- class: *laughs*
- Him: No, really, I am.
- Class: *laughs again*
- Him: Why is that funny?
- Asshole: Because you're a man, and you shouldn't think that way.
- Him: Well why not?
- Asshole: I dunno that's just the way that is.
- Him: I'm a feminist because of my wife. She and I have the EXACT same job. Yet, I make more than her.
- Class: *laughs*
- Him: Why is that funny? Shouldn't women be paid equally as men?
- Same Asshole: No, they're supposed to be in the kitchen.
- Him: *slams fist on asshole's desk* Why?
- Asshole: Because that's how it is.
- Him: Why?
- Asshole: That's their job.
- Him: Why?
- Asshole: *can't come up with another answer*
- Him: I'm a feminist because my wife has the exact same job, gets less pay, and with that, I can barely support my three children. If she got paid as much as me, life would be a bit easier for all of us.
- *note, my mother is a teacher like my father*
- Him: Women gave birth to us, and now, here in the state of Michigan, they can't even have their own rights? It's 2014 people! Grow up or get out of my class.
- Class: *silence*
- Him: Now.. Louis XVI
