Beware of Unknown Numbers

Hey guys! It’s been light years since I last posted here. Oh my! Time flies by too quickly. I noticed that my not that recent posts are all about relationships. Hmm… I think that I should write about another topic but, what? I think I’ll let you in something I’ve been pissed off about during the last week.

Recently, an unknown number has been texting me. He knows my name and my location. He scared the hell out of me. How did I know that he’s a he? Well, I called the number using another number and the rest is history.

I didn’t really intend on replying but I’m really curious of the person behind the number. I thought the one texting me was just another friend of mine playing a prank on me. I asked him where he got my number and he said that he got it from a local newspaper. He said I was looking for a textmate. Excuse me??? I’m a very private person. I’m not the kind of person to post my private number in a newspaper and to look for a textmate at that. I don’t even give out my number to people who ask for my number when I just talked to them once or they were just introduced by my friends and especially to strangers.

He sent me gross messages. Shit! I was really annoyed by this and I stopped replying to his text messages. I think that you guys should be really careful with whoever you are talking to especially if you don’t know them personally. People who send gross messages really get on my nerves.

If you’re the kind of person who talks about sex on text, please stop! You’re annoying, disrespectful and last but not the least a big douche bag. I don’t want to sound mean but this is what I really feel towards people who do this kind of thing. I hope you will get clear thoughts so that you will know that you’re wasting the time of other people. Send a text message to yourself instead. It’s possible and it prevents you from pissing off other people. If it’s a form of satisfaction for your part, think again! The other party is not satisfied at all unless he/she wants to receive those kinds of messages.

If you’re a victim of this, just ignore. Don’t reply anymore. Block the incoming messages or calls from the number or better yet, replace your number. Trust me! When you don’t block the number, they will still send you text messages. I know it’s not good to receive this kind of messages. It’s not funny and not amusing at all.

Everyone, beware of unknown numbers who text you out of the blue. It’s a good thing if they are the people whom you’ve lost contact with over the years but if they are strangers, think again. You don’t want to let people into your lives that easily. You don’t know the harm that they may bring to you, your friends and your family. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. Have a nice day guys! Keep safe! =)

1. Do you need him/her to be good looking?
Not really. As long as he’s okay-looking, that’s fine with me. 🙂

Nineteen

Nineteen. Ito na siguro ang pinakahuling numero na matatawag mong teen ang isang teenager. Kapag teenager ka, inaasahan ng lahat na nagkaroon ka na ng kahit isang relasyon sa iyong opposite sex. Ngunit sa sitwasyon ko, hindi ko masasabi na nagkaroon na ako ng isang seryosong relasyon sa isang lalaki. Kaibigan, oo. Boyfriend, hindi. Maaring isa nga akong NBSB (No Boyfriend Since Birth) pero dito lang ba nasusukat ang pagka-teen ng isang tao?

 

Siguro, isa na sa mga dahilan kung bakit hindi pa ako nagkaka-boyfriend ay dahil strikto ang mga magulang ko. Overprotective sila lalo na ang papa ko. Siguro ay takot lang ako na suwayin ang mga kagustuhan nila kaya ganito ako ngayon. Ngunit sa tingin ko ay hindi lang naman ito ang dahilan. Hindi kasi ako masyadong nakikihalubilo sa ibang tao kaya siguro pwede kong sabihin na socially awkward ako. Hindi naman ako tulad ng mga loner sa tabi-tabi. Hindi naman forever alone ang peg ko. Sa tuwing may jamming ang barkada, kadalasan ay hindi ako sumasama. Ako kasi ang tipo ng tao na mas pipiliin pa ang magbasa ng libro kaysa sa sumama sa mga kaibigan at magsaya. Ayoko ng madaming tao. Minsan naman ay tila may sarili akong mundo at ayaw kong papasukin ang ibang tao dito. Ngunit tama na sa salitang siguro. Ang masasabi ko na lang ay, ito rin naman ay kagustuhan ko.

 

Masasabi ko na masaya ako kahit wala akong boyfriend pero minsan ay malungkot din. Kapag nakikita ko ang mga barkada ko kasama ang mga boyfriend or girlfriend nila hindi ko maiiwasan na mainggit. Hindi naman ako manhid para hindi man lang makaramdam ng kahit ano. Nabanggit ko ang salitang manhid. Siguro ay manhid ako. Low gets pa kung idadagdag mo. Pero hindi ko naman maitatanggi ito dahil sa tuwing may mga lalaking sweet sakin, ang iniisip ko ay super friendly lang sila at wala silang gusto sa akin. Hindi kasi ako marunong magbasa kung ang isang lalaki ay may gusto sa akin o wala. Hirap ako pagdating sa mga sitwasyon na ganito. Mas gugustuhin ko pa kasi ang straightforward kaysa paligoy-ligoy. Sabi nga ng iba ay torpe magnet daw ako. Naranasan ko na din noon ang tanungin ng mga lalaki kung pwede daw manligaw sa akin. Pero tinatawanan ko lang sila dahil hindi ko alam kung ito ay totoo. Mahirap kasing sabihin kung nagbibiro ang isang tao o totoo na pala ang mga sinasabi nila. Kung minsan ay naiisip ko din magkaroon ng lihim na relasyon pero napag isip-isip ko na wala akong mapapala kung gagawin ko ito. Kung magkakaroon man ako ng relasyon ayaw ko ng patago. Mas gusto ko ang alam ng lahat para walang problema.

 

Tulad ng iba, meron din akong dream guy. Pero alam kong wala naman talagang kwenta ang isang listahan ng mga gusto ko sa isang lalaki dahil hindi ko alam kung sino talaga ang nakalaan para sa akin. Yuck! Nagiging cheesy ako. Ngunit isa sa pinakagusto kong gawin para sa akin ng isang lalaki ay umawit siya sa harap ng madaming tao at ialay ang kantang aawitin niya para sa akin. Gusto ko din namang magkaroon ng soulmate. Pero hindi nga lang siguro ngayon kaya kailangan ko pang maghintay at sana it’ll be worth the wait.

 

Ika nga sa Dear No One na inawit ni Tori Kelly:

 

“So if you’re out there, I’ll swear to be good to you. But I’m done looking for my future someone. Cos’ when the time is right you’ll be here but for now, Dear no one, this is your love song.”

 

Pero hindi ito isang love song. Hahaha. Peace! 🙂

What Now?

          I hate it when people nag me into doing something and in the end they’re the ones who will cancel the plan during the last minute. That’s why I don’t expect too much because I know that it will just lead me to disappointments. I know that you can relate to what I’m feeling when there’s this moment in your life wherein you are excited about doing something and it just doesn’t push through. It sucks! I know I shouldn’t feel angry towards that person because I don’t have the right to. I just feel bad knowing that everything’s settled but the person who initiated the idea suddenly backs out. I hate it when things like this happen.

          Sure I know they also have their own plans but what about me? Letting me wait for half a day before they can give me a confirmation. I just don’t get it why people don’t say things straight to the point that they can’t make it and let you wait for hours before they can finally say it. If they had informed me earlier, I could’ve done something productive and not wasted my time doing nothing.

          Sorry for the sudden outburst but I feel the need to release the frustration that I’m feeling. I know that I didn’t consider the other party but I guess this just shows that communication is really important. Conveying the message clearly greatly helps in avoiding misunderstandings.

          So what’s the point? Don’t expect too much, communication is important, and don’t waste your time and other people’s time.

Rough (Japanese) – Movie Review

Hey guys! It’s been a month since I last posted a movie review here. I’m really sorry. Hope you can forgive me. So I watched Rough (Japanese movie) recently and I’m going to give you my review. The movie is based on the 1980s manga by Mitsuru Adachi and adapted to the big screen by NANA director, Kentaro Otani.

STORYLINE:
Rough may sound like an odd name for a film focusing on the budding romance between a swimmer and a high diver, but this seemingly peculiar title choice does come to make more sense as the story unfolds, most significantly when a supporting character announces, “All great art begins with a rough sketch.” Although this metaphor is meant to describe the various athletes staying together at a coed dormitory for the summer, it comes to have greater meaning for the film’s two lead characters, swimmer Keisuke Yamato (Hayami Mokomichi) and high diver, Ami Ninomiya (Masami Nagasawa). The lanky, handsome, but comically awkward Yamato has great talent, but it still a bit rough around the edges when it comes to actual technique or effort. Ami’s “roughness” is a bit harder to define, as it is much more internal – something that cannot be solved by cutting to a rousing training montage. (Calvin McMillin)

REVIEW:
Rough showcases a coming of age romance that begins strongly enough; the film is full of visual gags, captioned freeze frames, and inventive usage of flashbacks. Having a shaky start like Ami calling Yamato a murderer, Yamato as well as the viewers were taken aback by how straightforward Ami was. As it turns out, the two have a history (one that I won’t spoil here) that accounts for Ami’s seeming hatred for Yamato. I’m kind of puzzled why the title of the movie is Rough when in fact they could’ve used another title for the film. But after hearing a supporting character say “All great art begins with a rough sketch.” That’s when I realized that the creator of the manga might have a reason as to why he chose Rough as the title for his work.

Two characters who seem to get the short exposure are Hiroki Nakanishi (Tsuyoshi Abe) and Kaori Koyonagi (Yui Ichikawa).I think the performances of the actors as well as the film’s strong first half make it worth recommending. Also, there’s a nice little revelation that occurs in the film’s second half that might enhance one’s enjoyment of Rough’s already amusing first half. I admit that I hope they could’ve thought of a better ending for the movie but I think it’s up to us to interpret it. I’ll give this movie a rating of 7 out of 10.

 

What Would You Do?

For the Boys,

 

What would you do when a girl confessed to you that she likes you?

Would you be taken aback?

Would you run away?

Would you tell her that you like her too even if you really don’t feel the same way?

Or would you be that person to sincerely tell her that you feel the same way too?

It’s something to think about.

 

For the Girls,

 

What would you do when a boy confessed to you that he likes you?

Would you be confused about what that LIKE really means?

Would you feel awkward and stop having conversations with him?

Or are you the type of girl to just laugh it off as if you heard it as a joke?

Or would you be the person to tell him let’s give it a try?

It’s something to ponder about, huh?

 

Seriously?

What am I saying?

It’s like I’m traipsing.

 

Just random thoughts on my mind.

Nothing hurts right?

=)
