let’s go get coffee 

This one time I was hanging out with my cousin after a long day, and he was taking pictures so I was trying to cover my face. But then he turned it into black and white, so now it’s like I’m in a John Legend music video.

I don’t want you to take this the wrong way, I just don’t think that very many people, especially your age, would be able to keep up with you. You know you are and you know what you want to do. Your eyes light up when you talk about your passions, and you’re not afraid to defy social norms and be who you are. And all this, this scares people." -I got this here on tumblr. It reminded me of you.

Okay, this made me smile.

futureghostsandglories-deactiva asked: Jericho! Hi there! It's me again. Remember me or not, I've actually dropped by to tell you that I'm deleting my blog soon for study's sake (not that it makes any difference anyway, since I haven't been on Tumblr for a while now, haha). But I just wanted to say goodbye to one of my favourite bloggers! I can't believe you got to see Taylor Swift. Hope life continues to be interesting and full of adventure for you! Who knows? Maybe our paths will cross IRL one day when you're off travelling :)

Hi!!! How could I not remember you! Thank you for appreciating my blog, I appreciate yours back 100 times more than you appreciate mine. I can’t believe I got to see Taylor Swift either. I’m crossing my fingers for our paths to cross one day when I’m off traveling (Probably this is wishful thinking), but you said it yourself, who knows? It’s making me sad to know that you’re deleting your blog because your posts are so lovely. Anyhow, from the words of Mindy McCready, “A girl’s got to do what a girl’s got to do.” Good luck on your studies!! 

I’m pretty much stoked about #flashbackfridayatbigbys because I’m SO obsessed with the past (and by past I mean antique stuffs)

Like a couple of months ago I went to Manila alone for Taylor Swift’s concert, and on the day of the concert Taylor Swift’s Red Tour Air Asia Jet flew over the taxi I was riding heading back to the condominium after I was at the mall, and suddenly I was running across NAIA 1 and 3 and basically all around Pasay trying to figure out where she might be arriving,while getting updates on twitter that were basically false, and I eventually realized that she was never going to walk through the Philippine’s airport with all the people and stuff because duh it’s the Philippines only to find out Taylor was using her own private jet on her way to the Philippines I mean what the hell Oh god how I lost a huge amount of money for taxi that day. (sorry I can’t even use periods to end my sentences)

Picture this: You’re on a plane with this stunning view while The 1975’s ‘Robbers’ is playing in the background. I can’t even.

Did you know, you can quit your job, you can leave university? You aren’t legally required to have a degree, it’s a social pressure and expectation, not the law, and no one is holding a gun to your head. You can sell your house, you can give up your apartment, you can even sell your vehicle, and your things that are mostly unnecessary. You can see the world on a minimum wage salary, despite the persisting myth, you do not need a high paying job. You can leave your friends (if they’re true friends they’ll forgive you, and you’ll still be friends) and make new ones on the road. You can leave your family. You can depart from your hometown, your country, your culture, and everything you know. You can sacrifice. You can give up your $5.00 a cup morning coffee, you can give up air conditioning, frequent consumption of new products. You can give up eating out at restaurants and prepare affordable meals at home, and eat the leftovers too, instead of throwing them away. You can give up cable TV, Internet even. This list is endless. You can sacrifice climbing up in the hierarchy of careers. You can buck tradition and others’ expectations of you. You can triumph over your fears, by conquering your mind. You can take risks. And most of all, you can travel. You just don’t want it enough. You want a degree or a well-paying job or to stay in your comfort zone more. This is fine, if it’s what your heart desires most, but please don’t envy me and tell me you can’t travel. You’re not in a famine, in a desert, in a third world country, with five malnourished children to feed. You probably live in a first world country. You have a roof over your head, and food on your plate. You probably own luxuries like a cellphone and a computer. You can afford the $3.00 a night guest houses of India, the $0.10 fresh baked breakfasts of Morocco, because if you can afford to live in a first world country, you can certainly afford to travel in third world countries, you can probably even afford to travel in a first world country. So please say to me, “I want to travel, but other things are more important to me and I’m putting them first”, not, “I’m dying to travel, but I can’t”, because I have yet to have someone say they can’t, who truly can’t. You can, however, only live once, and for me, the enrichment of the soul that comes from seeing the world is worth more than a degree that could bring me in a bigger paycheck, or material wealth, or pleasing society. Of course, you must choose for yourself, follow your heart’s truest desires, but know that you can travel, you’re only making excuses for why you can’t. And if it makes any difference, I have never met anyone who has quit their job, left school, given up their life at home, to see the world, and regretted it. None. Only people who have grown old and regretted never traveling, who have regretted focusing too much on money and superficial success, who have realized too late that there is so much more to living than this.

Back in the 90s, you couldn’t just go on the internet to announce something. (You had to go outside and scream ‘The Crusader September tabloid is out today!!!’)
