This is actually a dream come true!
Last July, I opened a new domain on wordpress to give space to my much awaiting comics, which is The Zero Calorie Adventures of Milk and Coffee. It’s a bunch of Filipino (Tagalog) comic strips that focuses on the friendship of the characters Milk and Coffee and friends.
The story line came out of no where, when I kept on wearing my weird shades and I started drawing my mini me. That’s explain why ‘Coffee’ had this bug-eye/heart-shaped shades. While the other characters are based on people I encounter and some friends.
The comics is in Tagalog, so sorry for the English-speaking fellas who are following me. It’s actually a risk because I don’t have an idea how it will go since I’m never familiar with the local SEO and how the new site’s Google ranking will climb up. Plus the fact that it’ll be composed of mostly images, I think it will be a great challenge for me.
But anyway, to my Filipino friends here, please support The Zero Calorie Adventures of Milk and Coffee. I’d appreciate it if you will follow and like our posts both on blogs and Facebook.
Just kindly go to these link and hit like:
Thank you so much!
This blog will never close, by the way. I have plenty of poems to share to you, so please, please stay tuned!
Long Title: My Valentine… (talking to myself) — a very short story of someone feeling something strange the night before Valentine’s day.
By Yours Truly
Love is an emotion, they say.
Love is a condition for some.
Love is god & God is love for many.
What is love, though?
What is love when if the heart is broken?
It might be easy to answer, but it’s hard to explain why.
It could be hard to answer as well. But who knows…
…the answer might be that someone sitting right beside you.
If he’s the answer, why then couldn’t define love yet?
Should I enumerate: (Grabs a pen and paper…types it in my laptop)
Butterfly in my stomach. Check.
I can relate to love songs. Check.
I feel comfortable with him. Check.
I miss him after some few seconds we separate ways. Check.
I hate it when he don’t text one of these: good morning, good night, and how are you? Check.
Well, I stay awake late because of him. Check.
Can these be a good definition of love?
There could be ways, I guess, to finally tell that I’m in love. And perhaps, he could be my valentines if I tell him what I feel.
It’s so perplexing. Sometimes, I don’t know what I’m writing. I’m starting to run out of notebook pages and my drafts are filling up because I have lots of feelings I want to express in all different ways.
Can you be My Valentine?
My Love? OR, maybe not?
Gosh! This one is getting longer and longer.
Oh My God! It’s you. Why the hell you’re messaging me in the middle of the night?
*pause writing* *Grabs phone* But wait, should I say good night or I will just seen-zone you for a while?
*Types Good Night!… and :-* and sent*
Oh My Gosh! What did I just do?
*Sees Replying… and beep*
OH MY! He wants to see me tomorrow. Is this it? Is this really it?
Oh my! (Yes, I keep on saying OH MY!) I’m convincing myself now with sighs and relaxation. I guess I should sleep.
*drops pen* *turns off laptop*
I guess I will have My Valentine tomorrow.
As you’ve noticed, I’ve been gone in my own personally space here in the world wide web for many months. My wordpress has sending me anniversary notification but it saddened me because I wasn’t able to fulfill my duties as self-proclaimed blogger.
During the time I was gone, I focused on finding myself after the great break-up. My ex was never in good terms, until I finally forgive him, forgive myself and forgive the people involved in our great divide. It didn’t mean we were back as boyfriends, we came to the point where we became friends and somehow trying to see each other and trying not to feel the hurt anymore. We’ve decided that we’re better off friends. I’ve been vocal about this because from the first place he was here in this blog. He became most of the time my inspiration in writing stuff here, and that’s why I was also gone writing because blogging reminded me of him always — and I was trying to escape from my past that time because it hurt every time — but I’m definitely okay now.
When I was gone, I got involved in an advocacy on spreading awareness concerning HIV/AIDS and self-worth. In this volunteerism, I engaged myself in activities such as counseling the people who are getting tested — yeah, I’ve undergone training to do it — and events organization (wherein I conquered my fear on dealing with people) and educating youth in different colleges and universities.
Actually, it wasn’t easy to be involved in an organization like this because it really takes my free and idle times. But to be honest I’ve never experienced to become as productive as what I am right now. I feel like my time is being spent well during these period. That’s why I had to set aside blogging just to find what I really want to happen in the next phase of my life and now with this new duty.
Another thing, my gaming hobby is not obsolete yet. I’m still having fun playing games on my phone. Later on I’ll go back to Granado Espada once I’ve got the laptop I’m looking for. I will try to squeeze it my schedule and let’s see what I can do.
Anyways, see you on my next post.
…with lots of things to share. Stay tuned.
