How are you?

A simple question that I find difficult to answer recently. It makes me stop and think for awhile... "Do I REALLY have to answer?" "Do I trust this person enough to say what's really on my mind?" Most of the time, I say "I'm fine," other times I say, "My boyfriend and I broke up."

I'm not even sure if you guys knew that I had a boyfriend. So, a short backstory, we were together for 3 years and we were friends 2 years before that. We started our relationship 6 months before I had to leave the Philippines and we were on a long distance relationship since then. I wouldn't say that it was the distance that made us broke apart, but it was a factor, I assume.

It's been a month and I am fine. This July, I met these super cool people on Telegram via Camie's group chat  and we all kind of clicked. It may sound silly because these people are technically strangers on the internet, but you know, we're all strangers here and they really helped me go through the whole break up. I love you guys. In case, you stumble upon my blog. (which I hope won't happen. Lol)

Two more updates I want to talk about, I've been learning/playing the ukulele! It started because (1) I had to make a video for my Mom's birthday and I thought playing "Lemonade" by Jeremy Passion would be cool enough to make her cry and because (2) I was encouraged by one of my new buddies when he said that learning the ukulele is easy! I've been posting on Instagram if you want to see me embarrass myself. 

Lastly, I had my first out-of-state drive alone on my own last week! It was an hour and half away to Maryland and another hour and half back home. Driving back home was a challenge because Google Maps led me through the woods, with two-lane curved roads in the dark. The thought of certain death came to mind but I was also happy that I was there going through it by myself and surviving, like in life. :)

Have a merry December, guys!
