there are a couple of people i’d like to thank for giving me a good year. The best year of my 14 years of living, actually.
FIRST AND FOREMOST, MY LORD & SAVIOR, JESUS CHRIST. He forgives me when i do things that i know i shouldn’t. He welcomed me back with open arms when i strayed away. He is always there for me to talk to, whenever i’m having a bad day, or just when i need someone to talk to. And the most amazing.. He never stops loving me. Even though He blessed me with really good days, He also gave me the bad days too. But those were a test of my faith and to purify me. I don’t know where or who i’d be without those, as well. He has blessed me with the courage to share His Word and the strength to stand up for my faith. It’s time for me to give back what He gave me to me. Thank you, Lord, for giving me life and a purpose. I love you with all my heart.
MY FAMILY. My family.. oh man. Yeah, we’re pretty dysfunctional, but i love them. We can yell like crazy at each other and be completely annoyed by one another, but despite that, we love each other no matter what. We have some hellllla crazy days and there are days where we’re broken, but I wouldn’t trade them for the world.
SOULFIRE. “HOLLLLLA-LUJAH!” Right, right? (: Dang. I love my youth group. They continuously help guide me in my faith and are basically my family (even though 97% of them are blood related haha). They keep me in check with my walk with the Lord and are always there for support.
RAYMOND PASION. My Handsome, my Boo Boo, my Precious, my Baby, my Love, my everything, my perfect, my most prized possession. <3 Oh, y’all alllllready know! (; Haha. But forreal though. He knows me inside & out, better than i know myself, honestly. He loves my family and accepts them as his own. Not only is he my boyfriend, but i consider him my best friend, too. When i’m having the worst day ever, he can just simply smile at me and everything will be okay. We have the dorkiest little arguments & ‘who loves who more’ fights, but daaaang, i love them!<3 We have matured so much in our relationship, and developed a trust in each other that nothing can break. Together, we can get through anything. The highest highs and even the lowest lows just bring us closer together. Nothing can break us apart as long as we have God on our side. He does so much for me, and I do the same in return. I am truly blessed to have him; he can always cheer me up and help me stay strong. He’s taught me so much, and he inspires me everyday. He’s such a dork, it rubbed off on me. Haha, i love it though! I know nothing can hurt me when i’m in his arms; he holds me and i feel safe. I get this amazing sensation when i’m around him.. I don’t know how to explain but it is so awesome. I love him so much and I honestly don’t know what i’d do without him. He has truly helped me become a better person - mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. I thank God everyday for having him in my life and for sustaining our relationship. Half a year and still going straight to the top; it gets better & better every single day. <3
ASHLEY AVENO. My unbiological sister! Oh man. We’ve had some crazy times ever since we were little, but now we’re cooler than the other side of the pillow. (; S’all G, s’all G. Hahaha. This girl’s hella gangster.. she’s rubbed off on me -__- Haha. She’s always there whenever i need her, and she continually checks up on me to make sure i’m okay. I know she’s got my back, and i’ve got hers too. Her craziness always makes me laugh and whenever we have those deep talks, we can just hear each other out. She always understands me and can somehow relate to what i’m dealing with. Crazy, right? We always have a fun time with each other, there’s never a dull moment. She brings excitement in my life, no kidding. Haha.
KEVIN CELERIDAD. Kevi-Kev! Like the rest of SoulFire, he’s always there when i need him. He continuously checks up on me and how i’m doing with my walk with the Lord, and i praise God for giving him the qualities that he possesses. He’s a strong leader & I look up to him. I know he hears me out and understands me when i talk to him. I trust him a lot, seriously. Oh, and he gives me rides to youth functions, even if it’s last minute! ;X Haha.
RACHELLE CELERIDAD. Okay, so we’re not suuuuper duuuuper close, but she’s an Ate to me. I remember when i was having problems and she was there to listen when i called her up. I know she understands me, and i fully understand her too. She’s one of those people that i really look up to. It’s nice when i have those kinda talks with her.
CHRISTIAN TIMOTEO. “DOCTOR TIMOTEO” HAHAHAH. Like my brother, dawg. He always listens to me and gives me advice. He makes me laugh cos he’s a retard. Hahah. I always get random calls from this fool, but it’s cool to hear from him. Even though he always hella puts me on blast in front of my parents, i care for him nonetheless. Sometimes we kinda drift apart, but it’s cool. Cos i know he’ll always be there whenever i need him.
BRANDON VENTURA. Well, well, well. Mr. Vocals himself. Hmm, what can i say about Brandon? I’ve known him ever since grade school, but we didn’t really get close to this year. He always hears me out and it’s funny how he can always catch what i’m tryna say without me having to say anything. We’re hella bad in Matsushita’s class.. Haha, always tryna piss her off >:D He makes me laugh. It’s good to have him as a close friend; he’s always there when i need him. And i’m always gonna love him for introducing me to Raymond. Hahaha <3 Forreal though. Brandon’s a nice guy and a great friend. My singing buddy! It’s fun to have singing sessions with him in English class and everywhere else.
RACHEL ALONZO. Arrite, so. This girl is like, my older sister. We don’t really talk a lot anymore, but i know we’re still close. I’ve known her for like, 3 years now, but we barely got close this year. She always gave me theeee best advice, FOR REAL. Hella sayin’ things that made me think positive, haha. I remember when we would hella check up on each other to see if we talked to certain people. Haha, oh my. Forreal though, she’s like my sister. I’ve always got her back and i’m glad for her always being there for me.
JERWIN FRANCISCO. Even though he’s a JERK, he’s my favorite kuya. Hahaha. He always gives me a ride home, even if it’s last minute. We always have to argue about it, but he always gives in mwahaha. Despite how mean he is to me haha, i still love him. I remember those days when he would call to check up on me and make sure i was doing okay. Or when he’d hella look out for me. “I was like, ‘Ohhh, that IS NOT my ading!” Haha. I know deep deep deep down inside, he loves me. Haha. He gets mad cos he thinks i use him, but i don’t! He knows i care about him. Jerk. Haha.
KHAD. Oh, theeese my girls right here. Hoa, Alyanna, & Danh. We kinda separated as a group, but y’all know we’re still close. They’re always there to back me up when i need support and they give me advice when i need it. I know i can call on them when i need help.
MICHELLE DELA CRUZ. Hey hey Dreamer! Without her, i don’t think i’d be as positive as i am. Seriously, she always keeps me happy and is making sure i’m okay. Haha. We always have the best deep talks and she understands me. I never get tired of talking to her.
ALYSSA CLEMENKO. Even though she’s miles & miles away from me, every time we talk it feels like she’s right there next to me. I’ve had so many fun times with this girl. “Um, excuse me.. is this the Page residence?” Hahah oh boy <3 She’s one of those people that can hella make me laugh, no joke. I love having those talks with her, it’s nice catching up & hearing how she’s doing. She can always cheer me up when i need it.
MAZZIE GUIAM. Hm, my babygirl! She’s a very strong young lady and she has always been there for me when i need her. I’m proud of where she is in her walk with the Lord and she’s always keeping me in check, too. She’s another one of those people who can make me smile & I know she really cares for me. I got your back, Ate!
JOECELL AGAMATA. Mi favoritaaa! She has always been there for me ever since i met her, which was a good three years ago. She has my back and is one of those people who continuously comfort me and make sure i’m okay. Even though we don’t talk a lot anymore, i’m always gonna be here for her. She has a big heart and a big pretty smile to go along with it (; I do my best to try and be as great a friend as she has been to me.
KRYSTINA ANDERSON & KIM BUI. I haven’t seen these girls in forever! *Next Jonas concert, it better be all three’a us (; They always make me laugh; they’re some of the funniest people you will ever meet. They’re always so happy & it rubs off on me; I always get a positive vibe when i’m around them, haha. I love talking to them becos there’s never a dull moment when we’re together.
*There are a lot more; each & every one of my friends have influenced me and impacted my life in one way or another, but these few are the ones that stand out. I love each and every one of you, and I thank God for putting you in my life. <3
