Day 32: @25

I just turned twenty-fucking-five and I am not a millionaire yet. I failed. But I have a lot of friends who love and understand me. I think I’m more than a millionaire.

I started the day by waking up beside him. Mom and dad were the first in my messages greeting me and loving me even more. They threw a party despite my absence. I honestly didn’t have any plans today, but to try to sleep for 10 hours and go to Zoobic Safari. We scoured the shoreline to find dead jellyfishes, and ended up getting to The Cliff. It seemed like an abandoned establishment but it was actually a paradise. The view of the West Philippine Sea 15 feet above sea level, empty pavillion and villas, plus him acting like he doesn’t enjoy were the snippets of my day that I’ll treasure forever.

We went to Zoobic Safari after lunch to see kuya Glen. I said hi to the animals again and enjoyed the tour. I’ve been here for the nth time, but it never bores me. After that, we met his friend and he took us to dinner. We went drinking in a videoke bar after.

And now I stand here in this seashore ready to confess. I have waited for this moment with tears of happiness. Now, I’ll leave behind past by taking a chance. Now we stand at four corners of this room to have and to hold. Now he stands beside me to walk life’s winding road. And I owe it all to him for taking a chance.

I’m twenty-fucking-five, I look like 30+ and I am loved.

Thank you, my loves, for all the greetings. I’m sorry if time, my carrier and my device can’t acknowledge. I read them all and they made me smile. I love you all.

Day 31: Olongapo

Been on the road since 1 pm. From the office, I went home to see my Mamita. She made me ice cream and greeted me in advance. After small talks, I decided to pack my stuff. I was supposed to travel. I had a different plan which was cancelled, but I thought I should be away from the corporate world.

It’s been a year. Last time I was here was with him. We were its adopted sons. But tonight, I’m with someone else. Same setup, same impromptu lines, unplanned vacation. Despite all of it, I think I should be happy.

Or have I waited for this moment with tears of happiness? Here, I’ll live behind my past by taking a chance. I think I found just the right man.

Day 30: Afterglow

As I sit here in this dark room, all I seem to feel is light. And I see color, I see the mahogany in the blood of this life that’s ours.

I can’t fucking wait to see you again. You have no idea.

Day 23: Compensation

Today I got the prize when my novice artists placed 2nd last Christmas.

After the long wait, I got what we deserve. We may not made it all at the finish line but our teamwork put our program in the company’s competition map. In my opinion, that is what’s more important.

Being their POC is a lonely job. In a sense, you ought to be: you just cannot lead from a crowd of heroes and thieves. I got bashers, I got haters. I placed my reputation in a bad light. I declined corporate meetings, I lost my grandmom during the competition, I got hated for backing up my decisions. People didn’t understand. But with my Artist’s Guild behind my back, I was never alone. Yes, we have misses and slips. But we tried so hard. What a talent. What a discipline. What a team.

Love is more important.

Love always,
Jp

Day 21: Palm Sunday

Waking up beside you on a lazy Sunday morning. Priceless.

Day 21 of 100 hasn’t started yet, but I don’t think whatever happens today can be any happier than this. Unless I’d get to fuck Jake Cuenca today.

Day 19: Guadalupe, Makati, Philippines

I took my favorite 3-year old sandals to a repair shop and I realized Guadalupe is also known for authentic Pinoy-made shoes. You can find all sorts of shoes here, brogues, boots, etc. Either I’m a stupid Americanized local or I just appreciate small things. I have never been to a place with a huge number of black shoes by the way.
