After getting a big surprise a few weeks ago from my friends, I realized more and more that I’m not really good in receiving great surprises. For one, I feel that I don’t deserve something so grand. Two, giving a surprise is very fulfilling. And lastly, being on the receiving end feels like being out of my comfort zone, which makes me feel awkward or even emotional. You have much more control when you give a surprise. You know what you want to happen. When you receive one, you have no idea at all of what’s about to happen.
Well, I think it’s just that my heart couldn’t handle the adrenaline of being surprised compared to giving one. And that I love it when people like the surprise that I, together with other people, have prepared. I do believe that someone who knows how to give a surprise also knows how to receive one. So hopefully, I won’t have these feelings anymore whenever I receive a surprise.
July 21, 2012 will always have a special place in my heart and my neurons. Me and my friends were supposed to have a trip to Corregidor. It got cancelled because of the very rough weather conditions. However, the reason why it is special is because we proved that friendship is more powerful than all of the storms combined. We still had a great time and we redefined the meaning of the word fun.
Now, whenever I experience heavy rainfall I will be reminded that each storm in our lives can be overcome because of the people we call friends.
And so from this day forward I will call our bunch the Corregidor friends. ^_^
I’ll be starting to post a series of poems today. I am planning to complete it before the end of the year. This will be the first time for me to write poems that are not purely about romantic love. I call these thank you poems since I dedicate them to the people that I would like to thank for just about everything they have shared with me and how they have shaped me as a person.
