Business Idea: Deliveries Sitter

I want to buy online, but one cannot schedule deliveries. What if the delivery guy arrives and no one is home? To remedy this, I thought of a business idea that I would never actually create (haha, as always). So here’s me sending it out to the universe, fully willing for it to be stolen. My idea is: deliveries sitters.

Open Fan Letter to Julia Cameron

Note: from a prompt in The Daily Poet by Kelli Russell Agodon and Martha. Jan. 12 prompt: write a letter to an artist

Dear Julia Cameron,

I did the exercises in your book The Artist’s Way, and they’ve healed me. I don’t know what to say to thank you. I am also a teacher, and I hope that someday I will have a job where I am teaching your creativity course. I want to also make my own creativity course. I want to do something that’s nuanced to Filipino culture. How did you come up with your idea? You said it was just trial and error. Could you elaborate?

Fictional Monologue: No Bullshit Breakup

Note: This is a work of fiction

I have something to say, and I wish to just be very truthful when I say it. I don’t mean to hurt you, but I know that what I will say will hurt, and I’m sorry.

I want to break up. Over the months that we’ve been together, we’ve had our clashes, and I don’t want any more of them. I have made mistakes, but you have also attacked me and hurt me. I appreciate that you have apologized for some of those things, but I feel like your blow ups will just happen again and again, and I am not emotionally stable enough to handle them.

Have You Forgotten
by Age of the Diary

We wanna tell you
That we are true friends
We wanna tell you
That we’ll be here up to the end
We wanna tell you
That we care
But when sorrow comes, were you there?

Kiddie Loves: He Played the Panty Game, My Christmas Husband, Celebrity Crushes

As I said in my post I’m in my Ted Mosby phase, I recently realized I want to start dating, and I also want to write about love. One dilemma is that I probably do not want to write explicitly about the people who I am currently interested in. Instead, I will write about my past experiences, and then talk about things that I am currently learning in a more general way that gives no clues as to who I am talking about. Ok, good plan. Anyway, so for this entry, I want to talk about the guys I had a crush on when I was a kid.

When Your Crush is Not on Facebook

Note: I found this in my laptop, and omg it’s so embarrassing, it’s gold.

It’s hard to be obsessed when your crush doesn’t have Facebook. Yup, he’s one of those people, the ones who think that Facebook is beneath them. Why do I like older guys again?

When my crush has Facebook, I am updated on his random thoughts. I can make papansin with my posts and deliberately post something that I am sure he will comment on, and then I’ll start a conversation. I can be surprise kilig whenever he likes my posts. I can talk to him on the walls of our common friends so that I am commenting on the same topic, and it’s not like I went out of my way to find things he commented on and then try to strike up a conversation with him. I can look at his photos on Facebook and laugh about how ugly his ex-girlfriend/ current girlfriend is.
