In no particular order.

Jackie Bui of Buitiful Confessions

Hi reader, I reckon you already know Jackie because of my Day 5, where I publicly professed my love for this gal. WHIP-SMART. That’s what I love about her. Her writing style reminds me of the ones I read in books. I think I’ve mentioned a million times how much I adore her. All I know is that Jackie, my online twin, serves as one of my inspirations in maintaining this blog. Remember! She’s the first person I look up to in terms of blogging. Anyway, just look at her new haircut. Isn’t she gorgeous? I got it from her facebook account

Read her blog or you’ll miss the amazing things life has to offer. 😉

lara

Lara of Deep Fried Jupiter

Aside from Jackie, this girl is also my favorite even until now. I first learned about her when I was just a newcomer in tumblr. Her blog consists of her experiences, advice,  basketball, basketball, and basketball. She’s a journalism major in UST. Running and playing basketball (obviously) keep her sane. I love the way she writes, and the manner she expresses herself. I can say how honest she is when I read her posts. Her taste in graphic design always gets me. Oh pink. She’s also into photography. This pretty Joyce Jimenez look-alike will definitely capture your heart.

And oh!! I got this photo of her and her boyfriend from her tumblr. I JUST LOVE LARA AND KRISTEN. They have this type of relationship every girl dreams of.

mikkey

Mikkey of Isang Malaking Microwave

This is Kuya Mikkey. He has to be one of the most sarcastic persons I know. He’s a huge PBA fan. He’s never afraid to say what’s on his mind. He usually writes in Tagalog. Visit his page and you’ll find yourself laughing at his wit. His gif of himself inside the fridge while welcoming the summer is just sajhfgashdhjhlfsa. I laughed until my side hurts. He’s always been a concerned citizen of this country. (wait I’m cracking up with what I’ve just said) You’ll often read politics-related posts in his blog. I admire his honesty and practicality.

gio

Gio of  Tomorrow Never Knows

This lad here is Gio. He wants to be a journalist someday, a dream I didn’t pursue because I love Accounting more. I can somehow see myself in him. Driven and frank. He’s a bookworm too! He can be very random at times, but when he writes, you’ll ask yourself if he’s read what’s on your mind. Everyone can relate. It’s like he’s been through a great deal of struggles at an early age. I seriously don’t know what to write in here since we’ve been twitter acquaintances only for a few months. I think he’s pretty smart too, though HE LOATHES MATH. (Oh well I love Math.)

Read his blog.

kapatid

John Brix of Put Your Cape On and Fly

This young man here is my non-biological little brother. He followed me a few months back on twitter. He loves John Green and Algebra as much as I do! *applause* I think I haven’t even thanked him for being such a supportive friend to me. I can vent my feelings, vanities, and whatnot. He’s quite mature for his age, and I really appreciate everything he’s done for me. Whenever I’m feeling low, he’s just there, always telling me KAPIT-BISIG. 🙂

Dear kapatid,

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Big sis is always here to listen or whenever you need any help!! Don’t hesitate, okay? Stay awesome!  Mwah! 🙂

PS: I felt like a stalker finding photos of these people. Reasons behind.

  1. Jackie’s photo was from her facebook account. She just recently cut her long hair and it’s sweet that she even messaged me about cutting it and telling we’re really twins. 😉
  2. I think I’ve mentioned it already. Kristen and Lara. Lara and Kristen. Adorable, eh? 🙂
  3. Kuya Mikkey’s photo is what’s in her sidebar in tumblr. Just see for yourself. Also, I think the pitcher’s cute.
  4. I think Gio’s cute in that photo. He looks genuinely innocent.
  5. ISN’T MY BRO THE CUTEST?

Oh just don’t mind me, reader. Read their lovely blogs instead. DFTBA!! xx

The role of a writer is not to say what we can all say, but what we are unable to say. — Anaïs Nin

‘Buitiful’ Jackie.

Day 5, May 5th, Sunday: Publicly profess your love and devotion for one of your blogger friends. What makes them great? Why do you love them? If you don’t have blogger friends, talk about a real-life friend or even a family member.

Meet Jacqueline Bui.

We’ve been online buddies for several years now. Since high school I’ve been totally obsessed with quotations. I had this habit of searching quotes and printing  everything that touched me. I stumbled upon this tumblog with a certain quote from One Tree Hill. At first I thought it was a movie then I kept scrolling on that page. The blog belongs to Jackie. It was never my intention to stay on that page but I ended up reading the entirety of it. I fell in love with the way she writes. I’ve learned that she’s always wanted to be a writer, somebody like Carrie Bradshaw. I was all like “such an amazing writing, amazing blog, the page is so pretty!!” I didn’t know anything about tumblr not until I found her blog. Right there and then I created my own account and I filled it with quotes. I followed her right after making my page and being the ever-nice person that she is, she followed me back.

She’s a Psychology graduate and those days I was still in high school and in the verge of deciding for a course to take in college. I asked her about being a student and being the pied ninny that I was, I told her, “How’s being a psycho student?”. Yes, reader. I said ‘psycho’. I couldn’t stop laughing after realizing what I just said. Everything else follows. We started talking since then. She’s really approachable and you couldn’t really tell how protective she is when it comes to her younger sister. She actually reminds me of Holden Caulfield. You know how Holden was protective of Phoebe. Like that.

We’re oceans apart but it feels like I have an older sister online and that’s her.

She inspired me to write. I can tell she sometimes feels like she’s not good enough but Jackie, I know you’re reading this, you’re too good. I swear. You really are amazing and if you ever feel like you’re not good enough, just remember someone here who aspires to be someone like you. You’re an independent, loving, humble and beautiful human being with a beating heart.

Don’t forget to be supercalifragilisticexpialidociousy awesome!! ALWAYS.
