when i got something so say. or not. but good chances are: i'm probably procrastinating.
I’ve been trying to wrap my head around the fact that my college-bound baby cuz passed away suddenly last Monday night. It was just a few weeks ago that I was having brunch with him asking if he was excited to start UCI this fall quarter. Even when I see him lay there, I still can’t believe it.
Kyle— Even if it may not seem like it to everyone around me, I’ve been grieving all week, trying to hold it together. A blog post isn’t enough to explain how I feel right now (plus, I honestly don’t know if I have the strength to speak at your eulogy tonight), but even though I wish you were still here, playing with your little brothers with me, I wanted to thank you for teaching me more about myself, and most importantly, life; especially in the course of this past week.
I know that it was rough for you growing up, in & out of hospitals, but you also taught me to be tough. I’ll take care of your little brothers for you as much as I can, but I can tell you already taught them well and they can take care of themselves, as well as your parents, soon, if not now.
I regret that I haven’t spent as much time with you as much as I wanted to, especially recently, but I hope that I was able to teach you a few things while I watched you grow up into the awesome, educated, handsome, & tough little man you became.
Kyle, I miss you. We all do. But I believe that, even though your physical self isn’t alive, I know your energy is still with us; and as you probably already know: Energy can neither be made nor destroyed (Nerd Alert!). Plus (and I know it’s a bit cliché), I know your soul is resting in a better place—free of worries, hardships, and hospitals; someplace peaceful where you can sit back, relax, play Pokemón on your DS, & read Harry Potter as you watch over all of us.
Again, thank you, cuz. I love you, miss you, & I look forward to reuniting with you when it’s my time.
Rest in peace, Ading.
yesterday was Chick-Fil-A appreciation day. Long story short, I aired my feelings on a Facebook status update. After receiving a ton of positive responses, I responded to one in particular, not necessarily negative, but one sort of defending the company based on the 1st amendment. I’ve responded back via the comment section, but just so I can express to everyone how why I came to the decision why I chose not to go there in the first place (along with other notorious companies/corporations), here is that response:
first off, thanks so much to everyone. i woke up to so much positive support coming from a lot of people, friends & family, who I’m so glad to know is on my side. i’m so overwhelmed to know how many people know where i’m coming from, it’s
To sum up, it’s one thing to consciously know where your money is going to and how it’s effecting people and actively supporting it, but it’s another to know that same information but being ignorant or apathetic about it. Please, think before you act (or purchase).
