The girl who inspired the world, and who had made so much impact into my life. She taught me how to love words. She taught me never to give up. For me, she’s not just ‘buhaybabae’ on Tumblr but she’s a friend and her name is Kirsten. She’s totally different from what you see on Tumblr. She’s a different person when I talk to her on the Phone. She’s one special girl who was given to the world as a blessing. And on this day, she celebrates her 18th Birthday este Legal age. Hahahaha.
Happy 18th Birthday, Ate KJ. You’re 18 na and I know you have a lot going on in your life right now, things that you can’t understand but yeah, HAPPY BIRTHDAY. Hahahaha.
I really don’t know what to say, but I’m thankful to have a friend like you. Today is your birthday and it’s another blessing from God, for you and the people who love you. I can still remember the first time that we spoke to each other. It seems like it was yesterday that we talked about *insert random topic here*. I can remember those times on the phone where in you’d hum songs like the song “Payphone”. And when you can’t take it anymore, you’d sing. I can still remember that time when I first talked to you, you asked me not to call you “Ate” but to call you “Ten”. But then, I still called you ‘Ate’. I can still recall those times when you’re craving for Pizza or even just Jollibee or McDo. There are a lot of memories that I still wanna share the world, but nevermind. You’re actually the first person who made me cry, not like tears of pain but tears of Joy. (Oh I know you could still recall that moment on the phone.)
Oh Ate Kirsten, you know how much I really want to meet you personally, but sadly I’m not ready yet. Although I’ve met a number of bloggers already but none of them could compare to you. I’m just scarred right now, and I don’t want you to see me like this. I’m just so sorry about that time that I stopped by somewhere down the road (Alam mo na yung story nun.). Soon, I’ll be able to fix myself and we’ll do all those things that we used to talk about, like the sleepover at a Hotel room, or the night at McDo or even just the vain moments or just that short roadtrip together with other friends that we dreamed about. Oh I wish.
Since now that you’re 18 na, live your life to the fullest. But don’t you ever forget about God. Don’t forget to thank God for your lessons and the all of the blessings that he has given you for the last 18 years of your life. I don’t know if I’m gonna be there with you in the future, but I know that God will never leave you.
But I hope that soon we’ll be given a chance to meet one another. I may not know when, but all I can say is soon. The thing that I sent you, keep it. (duh). Hahahaha. Just remember, Ate that I’ll always be there for you, even though I’m so far away. GIve me a call and in less than 24 hours, I’ll be there. (what?) Hahahaha.
Happy Birthday Ate Kirsten. I wish you all the best.
