Day 7 — Your Ex-boyfriend/girlfriend/love/crush

Continuing with the challenge that's running for n years now, here's a letter for a never-my-ex but an equally important person that's been a part of my life for about 10 effing years (~1/3 of my fucking life). 

I just don't know what to say to my exes but congratulations on having their cute families. There are no hangups whatsoever. It'll be a boring 2-sentence letter. On the other hand, I'm too old to have crushes, so I picked this guy to write to. 

PS. You are the only exception, my lovely boyfriend. You are my home and my bliss. I wish to be with you forever. I love you, sweet.

Hey, you,

Don't you miss writing online? I've never erased our e-mails; once in a while I check on them and brood about why we can never be friends now. Haha, typical.

On that note, I know we are never for each other. Thinking back, I'm relieved that we did not have a chance to be together as an official couple. We would destroy each other. I want a handful of things in a relationship that I know you won't give, and of course it's the same for you. I remembered when we tried to show our feelings to each other - I told you I liked you; you responded with a "Thank you". You were always just a text away - you were practically my diary, but I did not see the value of time then. I did not responded well with your love language and I guess neither did you with mine. We both felt rejected even though it's not the case at all.

Plus, time's a bitch for both of us. I was almost always ready to have a man in my life, and you never were. I don't want to call you my rebound, but we were always in touch during my 'breaks'. Anyway I was also there when you had your first break up, so. 

Still, it's sad knowing that 1/3 of my life, you were a constant, and now you're not.

Anyway, congratulations for us on finding our perfect partners! I'm so happy we're both happy.

You will always be the kindest, most saintly person I have ever met.

Failures and stuff - Wikimedia Commons photo contest

I recently joined Wikimedia commons' photo contest entitled Wiki Loves Earth 2018. The theme is natural heritage sites, and thanks to J the boyfriend, I had a photo for the contest. I had entered, won and lost contests before but this one hit me hard. Take a look:

Here's my entry - Sampaloc Lake and Mt. Banahaw

I believed in that photo so much that I thought it would make the top 20 cut. Oh well, at least I have a new cellphone wallpaper.
