Happy 18th birthday! It’s a new chapter of your life so you better start it right. Remember that legality comes with great responsibility, so be smarter, be wiser.
Anywho, I really want to thank God for bringing you in my life, I never imagined life without you right by my side. I remember 5 or 6 years ago, we were complete strangers back then, no Hi, no Hello, we cant even give each other a smile and the only thing that made us connected is through FRIENDSTER. I never expected that you will be this special to me, this close to me, I’m just grateful, to have you in my life is a special gift. Four years ago we became closer, and we have grown together with every passing year. I have grown to love you more every day, and if it wasn’t for you, I would be lost right now. We have our ups and downs, misunderstandings and we may argue sometimes, but these just made us stronger and even grow closer. As I said before, you’re just one of a kind, you can make me laugh when nothing’s even funny, you’re the only one who made me cry inside a shopping center not because you hurt me or what, it’s because that’s the last time that we’re going to be together before I leave. And of course, you’re the only girl who trusts me with everything more than anyone else. And just because of that I can proudly say that you’re the girl whom I love the most.
Anyway, I just want you to know that I really really miss you! I miss your sweet voice, your warm tight hugs, your soft hands and lastly your stunning smile. I’m so sorry if I cant be there when you’re sad, I cant wipe your tears when you’re crying and I cant even hug you if you needed comfort. I may be far from you right now, but every time I close my eyes, it is you who I see standing right beside me. I know that distance may keep us apart but please keep in heart that you are carefully tucked in my heart. You know that all I want for you is to be happy with whatever you do. I wish I could truly thank you for all that you have helped me with And all the hard times you have helped me get through. But words aren’t just strong enough. I don’t know what I would have done if you weren’t here. For every second that I’m with you, I am stronger; I’m better, because every moment I was with you, I was everything but myself. You’ve helped me to become a better person. Thank you for making this friendship from nothing to something worth fighting. I can tell you ”I love you” over and over again everyday, cause we never know, this could be my last. Again for the girl who have helped me define my life, your BIRTHDAY is an exclusive day for me to let you know that I LOVE YOU
Again HAPPY BIRTHDAY, we still got heaps of plans ahead of us! I LOVE YOU
I hope a re-post is alright for the first of the year. Sup 2011!
ChocNut by Gina Verdolaga
Yes, Chocnut, the sweet staple of my childhood, a simple concoction of peanuts, milk, cane sugar, cocoa powder and flavoring. What joy it evoked to know that I had a secret stash of Chocnut in my school bag or desk - not to be shared of course, for that would destroy the thrill.
There are different ways of eating Chocnut: you can break it into smaller blocks or divide it lengthwise. The challenge is not to crumble it in the process. If you’re in a hurry, you can swallow the whole rectangle. But you risk possible choking because its texture allows it to stick to your throat. You can chew it or let it sit inside your mouth and wait for it to melt. Since that would take a while, you can shift it around with your tongue and scrape it off your teeth. That way, you can savor the peanut grains better. Any crumbs left inside the foil can be reshaped with your thumb and forefinger into an edible mass, or you can more efficiently take care of any remainders by licking the foil. The foil is plain silver but occasionally, it can come in shiny green, red and blue colors during the holiday season.
