30 Days of Letter (continued), day 28 — Someone that changed your life

Dear Brother,

I can’t believe it took me a while to think about who to write this letter to when it is actually so obvious. I guess that tells me that I have truly and completely embraced you as part of my life. And that’s a good thing.

There are of course some days when I think to myself how my life would have been without you in the equation, but I don’t think I would prefer it that much.

So yeah, thank you for being part of my life, for changing my life.


30 Days of Letters (continued), Day 27 β€” The friendliest person you knew for only one day

These three lovely people… because they made my last day in Grand Rapids seriously fun. Thank you for welcoming me to the little party we had, even though we barely knew each other. Thank you for the laughs, the panic, the randomness and general craziness. Hope all of you are well and moving forward with the wonderful plans God has given you. And keep being such beautiful, friendly people. The world has hope for the future if we all are as welcoming as you were πŸ™‚

30 Days of Letters (continued), Day 26 β€” The last person you made a pinky promise to

I do NOT remember who the last person I made a pinky promise to is… nor do I even remember if I had EVER made a pinky promise in my whole life. I probably did. I vaguely remember pinky promising with someone. But that was probably a long time ago. So yeah.

30 Days of Letters (continued), Day 25 β€” The person you know that is going through the worst of times

My dear friends at STTJ, especially those in the 9th semester… and everybody else who feel like they need this.

Life’s tough. Assignments are crazy. Sometimes you’ll feel like giving up. That’s okay. Cry, scream your head off, take some rest… then smile and carry on.

Cause at some point it will all be worth it.

Promise πŸ™‚

PS: and if you need someone to talk to or to throw random craziness at you (it might help), you know how to find me ;P

30 Days of Letters, Day 24 β€” The person that gave you your favorite memory

Problem with this one is… what is my favorite memory? LOL. I generally have a favorite memory for each person, so it’s difficult to decide on one person who gave me my (most) favorite memory. But… let’s see… how bout… this…

“So do you like me or something?”
“Do you want to kiss me?”

Two questions… two stupid wrong answers. I still wonder to this day how it would feel like to kiss you. You know, perhaps rather than asking, you should’ve just went ahead and kiss me. It would’ve been my first kiss. It might have been awesome. And even if it wasn’t, at least you would’ve saved both of us the agony of eight years of wondering “what if?” — yes, I am assuming that you wonder the same time after time.

Nevertheless. It’s one of my favorite memories not because of how it went of afterwards, but the moments we had slightly before and the morning right after. Those were really nice.

Too bad, really, too bad… but anyways. I hope you’re happy now. Yes, I am itching to see your wedding announcement soon, so I can stop hoping. Although I still fantasize about kissing you at some point… for no reason at all but to answer that annoying “what if?”

30 Days of Letters, Day 23 β€” The last person you kissed

Hey you…

Wonder what you’re doing right now. Congrats on the first finished chapter πŸ˜‰

I could really use a kiss and a hug at the moment, from you especially. Too bad you’re so far away.

Well, a message should do, actually.


30 Days of Letters, Day 22 β€” Someone you want to give a second chance to

Uh… uhm… I don’t know who to write this letter to. Not that I don’t believe in second chances, rather cause I always give people second chances (sometimes even third and fourth chances) anyway… so there’s no particular person I can think of.

30 Days of Letters, Day 21 β€” Someone you judged by their first impression

Bu Marusya,

I honestly used to be terrified by you. Hahah. Yes, with all your accessories and your long flowing white hair, you were a distant, overpowering, kinda scary figure… a lot like a witch! But perhaps I ought to have learnt from Wicked (the musical, since I haven’t finished reading the book) that too often things aren’t what they seem.

I am glad, grateful and honored to have been your Liaison Officer for the PRPG event, even if I did complain quite a bit about your requests since I seem to be the only LO doing so many (mundane) things.

But it was great to find out that you’re actually a really nice and funny person. Far from the image I had on my first impression πŸ™‚

30 Days of Letters, Day 20 β€” The one that broke your heart the hardest


I used to nick-name you. Congratulations, you win the “award”! And you probably didn’t even notice. Or maybe you did. How else would you explain the awkward almost two-years of silence we had. Although maybe you thought I was the one who broke your heart. Uh, maybe not. I don’t know. What I do know is that you indeed broke my heart. And you are still breaking my heart every time I see you (although fortunately I haven’t seen you in 2.5 months). Fourteen, no, fifteen years! What a record!

Okay, I don’t know why I’m being all sarcastic with you. I have to admit I am eagerly waiting for the day you actually get married, a.k.a. the day you will break my heart for the last time. It doesn’t make sense, really, the way things are between us. And if what happened 7 or so years ago happened today, we might actually have a very different story.

So err yeah, this is the public confession of “I actually did have a (major) crush on you” and I’m sorry things didn’t work out between us. I sometimes still kinda wish it did.

30 Days of Letters, Day 19 β€” Someone that pesters your mindβ€”good or bad


Here’s proof that you are pestering my mind:
I am ALWAYS itching to contact you in some way… and have to exercise great restrain not to!

Otherwise you might find yourself flooded with random little notes from me. Not that you are not already getting some. I’m bad at self-restrain… and I love leaving random little notes. LOL. Believe me if I actually write you something EVERY time I think of you, you’d start hating me for taking up too much of your time or something.

I actually hate you for doing that, you know… I mean pestering my mind. But then again, I’m the one who let you pester my mind, so I guess I have only myself to blame.

The thing that annoys me the most of this whole thing however, is how I’m rendered speechless most of the time when we’re actually chatting. I guess I’m not the only one with this problem, however, since Natasha Bedingfield actually wrote a song about it. Wait a sec, I’m drifting away here… let’s get back at you pestering my mind.

I wish I knew what it is about you that keeps me thinking about you as much as I do. I guess I have a slight idea, I just don’t really want to admit it. Hahah. And now back to Natasha Bedingfield… she does a great job at summing up things for me πŸ˜›

but when you’re around, oh you..
Always leave me speechless
Don’t know how you do this
Don’t know why when you walk in the words run out somehow
Silence is my weakness
All the chances i’ve missed
Just a kiss to let you know
The truth’s right here behind my lips
Oh oh oh oh
I’m speechless
Oh oh oh oh
I’m speechless
