Goodbye, Anberlin. Thank you.
Look what I found in a secondhand books store while waiting for my boyfriend! It was September 1. We turned one year on August 29. Ako yung kinilig, eh.
“ I no longer have patience for certain things, not because I’ve become arrogant, but simply because I reached a point in my life where I do not want to waste more time with what displeases me or hurts me. I have no patience for cynicism, excessive criticism and demands of any nature. I lost the will to please those who do not like me, to love those who do not love me and to smile at those who do not want to smile at me. I no longer spend a single minute on those who lie or want to manipulate. I decided not to coexist anymore with pretense, hypocrisy, dishonesty and cheap praise. I do not tolerate selective erudition nor academic arrogance. I do not adjust either to popular gossiping. I hate conflict and comparisons. I believe in a world of opposites and that’s why I avoid people with rigid and inflexible personalities. In friendship I dislike the lack of loyalty and betrayal. I do not get along with those who do not know how to give a compliment or a word of encouragement. Exaggerations bore me and I have difficulty accepting those who do not like animals. And on top of everything I have no patience for anyone who does not deserve my patience. ”
“ .. And you begin to accept your defeats
With your head up and your eyes ahead
With the grace of woman, not the grief of a child.
And you learn to build all your roads on today
Because tomorrow’s ground is too uncertain for plans
And futures have a way of falling down in mid-flight. ”
Jorge Luis Borges
“ When you’re young, thunderstorms seem scary. Like the sky is angry at you. But now that I’m older, something about its roar soothes me; it’s comforting to know that even nature needs to scream sometimes. ”
The numbers are a little off. Good message, though. Photo from the NOAA Marine Debris Program Facebook news feed.

You do maddening things all the time, but I love you all the same, because you always let me win our cold wars. Happy Father’s Day, Tanda. Come home soon.
