Love makes me cringe

Cringe

Don’t get me wrong. I love LOVE. I actually receive this everyday. Receiving and giving love is like an apple, it keeps bad things away (but I don’t say doctors are bad. Haha.) However, it makes me cringe. Am I saying that I hate love and it disgusts me? No. As what I’ve mentioned, I love LOVE. It is just so happen that people nowadays have been using love differently. THAT’S WHAT MAKES ME CRINGE. I don’t wanna cite examples but in general, Love has been used selfishly. Love has been defined differently. Love has been used for abominable things which is why Love becomes bitter for many.

There are different aspects of Love; but, let’s focus on the relationship, which is everyone’s fave.

After reading a self-published book of a friend, “LOVE is BLOG“, it made me understand more about love especially to those who are looking for their “The One” or the single people. I even saw the perception of guys pertaining to love. And, getting hope that love is still not dead. Continue reading “Love makes me cringe”

I am an artist for free

I have been designing digitally for about six years now and a year on traditional painting after I attended Graphicka Manila last 2016.

In about 6 six years, I’ve designed for free. Everytime I make layouts, my cousin always asks me if it’s commissioned. No. Then, he tells me to make it a profit since I have been doing that for years. If I’d done that, he multiplies the price to six and the number of design I make and tada! I’m a millionaire. Just kidding!

Those years, people kept on telling me to have it as business. For me, money was never a reason. I design for people and I don’t ask them to pay me unless they insist. To be honest, I didn’t even know how to price my designs. Having those in my portfolio was already enough. Improving my skills through their requests were enough.

Travelling with your family | Bolinao

Have you tried travelling with your family (with your relatives, nieces and nephews, tito, tita, lolo, lola) and thought that you’d better have a trip with your friends? I’d thought that during our trip but I never hated it.

You like going on a trip with them ’cause you’re seeing them enjoying while you’re also enjoying yourself. But, I don’t like it when I want to go somewhere and I have to stay where they can see me ’cause they’re bit paranoid that something bad might happen to me if I am far from them.

My Birthday Time Capsule

It took me hours to finalize the title.

Pre-Birthday Celebration

Tell me about your last birthday.

Two days to go and it will be a beginning and an ending of my life. I mean ending of my age and new age will sprout. Anyways, I am still thinking what to do on that day. Unlike before, I was quite demanding in celebrating my birthday because I knew people were planning to surprise me. I was alluding them with what I want to happen or to see on my birthday. It was actually my first time doing that ’cause I don’t usually expect anything on my birthday.

Tote Bag Project

It’s been a month since I started my tote bag project.

To share with you the story behind this project, I was actually fond of painting – then eureka came and I tried acrylic painting on my tote bag last year.

I planned doing this project on the last month of 2016 but didn’t pursue it ’cause I don’t like starting up a business without a reason. Fortunately, the new year came and I became a part of a building project which means I am also gonna be financing the building. That building, if you want to know, is for a certain community. The building had already, well, built, though it’s kinda old so they decided to renovate it.

Since that building will cause a million, I have to do something to aid the project. That is how I started this tote bag business.

The good Creator pours this artistic talent in me and I humbly wanting to use it for the world. Reading the previous made me cringe but yeah, I don’t want to use this for selfish ambition.

Here are the samples of my design. It only costs 300 pesos. The money will obviously be donated for the building.

If you want to see more designs, you can visit my Facebook page.
I will be designing more. If you want to request, you can send me a private message but I guess I’ll do it in my own style ’cause I want to design from my heart.

Your painter,

Clarence

Baka Pwede Pa

Anong tanong ang may pagsuko at pag-asa
Sana pwede pa
Na kapag gumising ako ng maaga ay tatambad sa akin ang balita na
Pwede pa
Pwede pang dagdagan ang araw ko
Na kahit ilang beses kong gusto ay
Pwede pa akong makalapit sa’yo

Pwede pa
Pwede pa naman dahil may ilang linggo pang nalalabi na
Makasama ka mula gabi hanggang umaga
Makasama ka’t buuin ang iba’t ibang storya ng pagtawa, pag-iyak at pag-iyak at pag-iyak
Sa paglaban na gusto ko pang tagalan ang pananatili
Pero hindi
Hindi ko na pwedeng hilingin

Pero pwede pa naman akong humiling ‘no
Na sana naman
Magkaron at dumating ang tyempo
Na bago ako tuluyang tumalikod
Ay sa harap ko man lang o gilid o kahit sa malayo
Ay bumulong ka o sumigaw at tinatanong sa akin na
Baka pwede pa

Baka pwedeng balikan ang nakaraan ng sa gayon hindi ako lumalaban
Wala akong iniiyakan, iniiwasan
Iniiwasan na sakit kasi tapos na
Ano pa bang gagawin kundi ito na
Ang ginagawa ko ngayon na magtanong ng paulit ulit ulit ulit na pwede pa ba
Pwede pa bang bumalik sa tanong mong baka pwede pa
Pwede ba ‘kong maging tanga?

Hindi pwede kasi tanga nga talaga
Ako
Sa paghaya ng mga pagkakataon na itapon
Ako
Na ang tanga sa patuloy na ipinaglalaban ang sarili sa’yo na baka pwede pa
Sana pwede mo pa akong kailanganin
Ako na ang tanga sa pagpapaisip sa’yo na baka hindi mo kayaning wala ako
Pero kaya mo
Kayang kaya mo

Sana kaya ko
Baka kaya ko rin na balewalain nalang ang lahat ng ginawa ko
Tulad ng ginawa mo
Sana kaya ko
Sana kaya ko nang talikuran ka ng tuluyan at hindi na ko nagtatanong na baka pwede pa
Ito na ang huling tanong
Pwede pa ba?
Ito na ang huling sagot
Pwede pa kitang makalimutan

Bamboo Bike

It’s been a while since I posted my last Sunday Currently article. I’m actually not busy; well I have so much time to blog but I just got a hectic schedule last Sunday ’cause I was given an assignment that the deadline was on the day the task was being given. Am I ranting? I bet no.

Anyway, I’m currently
