HELLO BABY. :*
Flowers for the birthday girl, our baby, our princess, our angel, our Ganjing..
Happy Happy Birthday Ganjing! Sino nga bang mag-aakala na hindi ka na pala namin makakasama ngayong 7th birthday mo.
Pero kahit wala ka na baby, at kahit ikaw ang may birthday ngayon, ikaw pa din yung may regalo sa’min. Yung memories na iniwan mo, forever naming itetreasure yun! Never mawawala samin yung mga pagkakataon na hindi lang pintawa, pinasaya mo pa kami.
I miss you Ganjing. I miss our kabaliwan. I miss your cute and funny dance steps. I miss singing with you. I miss sleeping next to you. I miss watching movies with you. I miss eating with you. I miss talking to you. I miss hugging you. I miss laughing with you. I miss everything about you.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY AGAIN, BABY!
I took this photo with my left hand, that’s why it’s inverted. :))
It’s hard. But I enjoyed this activity, parang balik-Nursery lang. I remember when my mom was still teaching me how to write; she would guide my right hand [which is my dominant hand] with her hands as I trace the letters in my Writing Book.
I did that as I write the draft for this entry. My right hand occasionally guides my left hand as I write. Minsan kasi bali-baliko na yung sulat ko, lalo kong hindi maiintindihan. HAHAHA.
But for my CJ entry, I used my left hand solely, so forgive me for the horrible hand writing:
Here’s what I wrote(HAHAHAHA. I can’t read it) :
"At first, it was awkward but I’ve learned to live wit it for the next hours.
Funny Story: When I brushed my teeth, I didn’t realize immediately that I was moving my head instead of my left hand.
My handwriting is horrible. I promise, I’ll practice.”
I know, the funny story isn’t at all funny. Sorry HAHAHAHA.
I’ve started practicing already:
I’ll post din about my progress. :)
My barkada keeps on forcing me to sing before our Script writing class. But I don’t really sing.. why? Because I perform! Jk.
Honestly, I am not a singer, but singing has always been my frustration since forever.
Okay, so back to my barkada. The video they are referring to is the “cover” my cousin and I made of P!nk’s ‘Just Give Me A Reason.’ And as I said, I am not a singer, so I just lip-synced in the video. HAHAHA
A lot of people who have watched the video aren’t aware of the reason I did that. It’s funny, I know but there is a deeper story behind that.
We shot that video using my iPad on June 6, 2013, the third night of niece’s wake [I’ll talk about her more in my next posts].
We needed to produce a video tribute for her – we wanted to relive the six years God has allowed her to be with us through a slideshow but we just can’t start the video tribute. Masyadong masakit. Every time I face my laptop, tears in my eyes won’t just stop from falling. I don’t want to cry anymore that night, and I had this crazy idea of doing a cover of ‘Just Give Me A Reason.’
Ganjing (my niece) and I really love to sing. We did not care if we’re sintunado or if we sang the wrong lyrics. Singing at the top of our lungs has become one of our pastimes. And when we’re together, we don’t just sing.. WE PERFORM!
Doing that cover, yes, I smiled, I laughed and I didn’t cry for a short while.
But that wasn’t me.
Katulad ng boses ni P!nk, yung ngiti, yung tawa at yung saya.. hindi akin ‘yun.
I brought this creative journal home!
This journal is Rej’s! Ma’am Faye asked everyone to exchange journals and we’ll do this activity in our classmate’s journal:
1) Set out a bunch of supplies (pencil, paints, etc).
2) Write or draw without censoring.
3) Make a move solely by using your intuition.
4) Use a spread in your CJ (2 pages). [or in this case “your classmate’s CJ”]
Here’s what I did:
I am happy with the outcome, and I hope Rej is, too.
Btw, I just used three colors of highlighter for this one. and ngayon, wala na silang ink. :’(
Yey! After more than a year (-___-) , I finally get the chance to update my blog! Thanks to Ma’am Faye Martel-Abugan for encouraging (requiring) us to create/maintain a blog!
I temporarily deleted my posts in my previous blog ( http://mariansays.wordpress.com ) because I am planning to “renovate” the site. Gusto ko kasi bago. But instead of “renovating” it, I decided to create a new blog here on tumblr. So yeah. I’m a newbie here!
This time, I will update this more often and try as much as I can to post entries with substance, and with heart. [Naks!]
