Pinuno ng mga kaibigan at taong mahal niya ang buhay niya ng mga sorpresa, lalo na ang dating pinaka-espesyal sa kanya. Pinasok niya ang buhay ng isang “legal” na kabataan, kung maituturing ng iba. 365 na araw niyang isinulat ang kabanatang ito.

Paano nagbi-birthday ang isang mag-labin-siyam-na-taong-gulang-na-laging-late na Education student? Simple lang. Hindi niya ipinagdi-diwang. 19 na eh, korny na ang babangon ka tapos nakabantay ang parents mo sa kama mo para batiin ka ng “Happy birthday!” Iba ngayon, nagmadali akong maligo dahil late na naman, ma-mark-an na naman ni Brother Raffy ng “late”.
Medyo malas na birthday.
Special mention ang University of Batangas – Lipa sa post na ito dahil limang minutong naka-tengga ang sasakyan naming dahil sa parado. Hindi ko naman ito masisisi kasi ilang beses o araw-araw nang nagta-traffic sa J.P. Laurel Hi-way dahil daw sa La Salle na kung tutuusin, dahil naman sa kantong malapit sa amin.
Tapos pag-pasok ko, brownout, walang elevator, napagsabihan pa ni Brother na ido-drop ako kapag late ako sa susunod. Sakit. Tapos naiwan ko ang wallet ko at medyo nakaranas ng pag-inarte ng tiyan. Umuwe ako. Hassle.
Ang daming sinabi. Susmiyo.
Eto na talaga. Nais kong magpasalamat sa mga kaibigan kong una-unang nagtext ng pagbati. Sa mga twitter followers ko na todo tweet ng greetings. Sa mga Facebook friends ko na mapa-Jejemon man o hindi, nagpost sa wall ko, kahit yung iba, “HBD” lang. Z for effort. Charot. Sa tumblr followers ko na todo TA at FM!
Sa mga kaklase kong sinabihan ko nang ayaw kong kantahan ako pero kinantahan parin ako. Pati sa Asslearn2 kung saan piang-message isa-isa para sa akin na tunay ngang awkward.
“Walang E3AE kung walang Eythan.” Salamat!
Pati sa mga tumawag na LAVOXANS, Tumbloggers, close friends, best friends, fck buddies (CHAROT), Lasallians, family, relatives, classmates, twitter followers, unknown people (HAHA), teachers at sa lahat lahat! Pati sa mga nagbigay ng regalo! Mwamwa. Basta lahat kayo, ang hirap isa-isahin, ano to “Pa-Promote ng blog?”
Pati siyempre sa isa diyan na sobra-sobra ang effort sakin. Mwamwa. You know who you are.
And kay God na nag-bigay ng extrang papel sa sinusulat kong kwento ng buhay ko para madagdagan ng bagong kabanata.
Pero seryoso, salamat sa lahat ng bumati at babati pa lamang. Mahal ko kayo.
At sana samahan niyo ako sa susunod na kabanata ng aking buhay.
Ang drama ko. Wait wat. xx
We should be having sex now.
I miss having a conversation with you. I may be in love, I may be in a relationship, I may be happy with someone else, but still, being with my best friend is the best thing ever.
Young, tech-savvy Filipinos more sexually active than you think
BY JEE Y. GERONIMO, 02/06/2014
MANILA, Philippines – In the age of social media, more young Filipinos are engaging in premarital sex.
A recent study on the fertility and sexuality of Filipino youth and young adults released Thursday, February 6, showed the digitally-wired generation is exploring new forms of sexual behaviors and activities, too.
The 2013 Young Adult Fertility and Sexuality Study (YAFS) conducted among 19,178 respondents showed 1 out of 3 Filipino youth had premarital sex, most of them young adults aged 20-24 (54%).
“Increasing prevalence of premarital sex may mean greater acceptance of behavior among our youth than in the past,” Maria Marquez of the University of the Philippines Population Institute (UPPI) said.
The increasing pattern in premarital sexual activity is expected, Marquez added.
"We suspect new media has something to do with this. That is what defines this young generation now," survey director Josefina Natividad told Agence France-Presse.
Sex videos via cellphone
The nationwide survey by the Demographic Research & Development Foundation and the UPPI noted the shift of young people’s preference from traditional to new media, which is also evident in their sexual behaviors.
25% or 1 in every 4 Filipino youth has sent or received sex videos through cellphone or the Internet, while one in every 100 Filipino youth has recorded his/her own sex video.
In addition, 4 in every 100 Filipino youth has had sex with someone they met online or through text messaging, while 6 in every 100 Filipino youth engaged in phone sex.
Young Filipinos today are also more sexually adventurous, the survey noted.
Of the 19.2 million young people in the Philippines, the survey translates to 1.4 million youth who had engaged in casual sex, 600,000 who had experienced having a FUBU (f*ck buddy), and 1 million young men who had sex with other men.
They are, however, only adventurous to some extent. The prevalence of commercial sex remains low, as the study showed a slight decline in the number of young Filipinos who paid for or received payment for sex.
But access to more information through new technology did not mean safer sex choices.
The study showed that even as young Filipinos explore more forms of sexual activities, most of them do not use any form of contraception as protection from pregnancy or sexually-transmitted disease.
This includes 78% of those who engaged in premarital sex for the first time.
Commission on Population executive director Juan Antonio Perez III, one of the reactors to the study, said the high number of unprotected first premarital sex encounters is something that should be studied further.
Another point of concern is the increase in teenage fertility in the past decade. Since 2002, the number of female teenagers who reported being pregnant had more than doubled from 6.3% to 13.6% in 2013.
Michael Tan, a reproductive health advocate and dean of the UP College of Social Sciences and Philosophy, said results of the YASF must be shown to the Supreme Court so teenage mothers could get more support from society.
“The Supreme Court is going to meet very soon on the reproductive health law…We need to present these figures of YAFS to them to remind them the number of young mothers in the Philippines are also their fault. By depriving our youth of reproductive health services, of comprehensive sexuality and education, we are bringing this country down on its knees,” he said in a mix of English and Filipino.
President Benigno Aquino III signed the RH law in 2012 but a Supreme Court temporary restraining order stopped its implementation shortly after.
Noong nagkaroon ako ng 2.50 sa isang subject na nag-alis sa akin ng pag-asa para maging Cum Laude, nasabi ko nalang sa sarili ko na I failed my Mommy and Papa. Pero sabi ko sa kanila, hindi man ako maging Cum Laude, ipapangako kong aakyat parin sila sa stage ngayong kolehiyo.
Sabi nga ni Papa, mapasama pa lamang ako sa Top 20 Outstanding Junior College Students of De La Salle Lipa ngayong taon, isang malaking karangalan na para sa kanila dahil mula sa ilang libong estudyante, napasama ako sa dalawampu.
Maraming salamat kay Lord, sa school, mentors and administrators for the opportunity to prove myself that I can be anybody in this Lasallian institution. Para sa parents, friends, classmates, and relatives itong oportunidad na mapasama sa dalawampung outstanding third year college students ng De La Salle Lipa. :) ♥
Sino bang Beans? HAHAHHA
