Journal entry #4: Birthday vibes 💙

 :

19th April 2017

I haven’t done one of these entries in a bit! 

Anyway, I have many things to be thankful for this beautiful month. It was a month fill with joy, laughter, and love, and I got to spend it with the best people in the world: my friends and family. 💙

I took a week vacation and during that time, I turned one year wiser. I don’t make a big deal of my birthday; I’m just always grateful to be alive when the BIG day arrives. I am not one to celebrate my birthday, but when in the company of loved ones, how can I pass this up? So on April 19th (nope, not my date of birth), we descended upon Rizzoni’s at Movietowne, which is my favorite hangout.

It was six of us and it was our first time there. I have to commend the service. Everyone was accommodating as soon as we stepped inside and our hostess was wonderful! In short, service was a 10/10 and we were given a waiting table to return. So whenever they call, we’ll definitely be there. 

My sisters took these photos:

I didn’t have this pizza, but it sure looked yummy!

One of my friends had this. I can’t remember the name of the dish, but she tremendously enjoyed it.

One of my friends just had to let our kind host know that I was celebrating a birthday, and I was serenaded by staff and presented with this delicious vanilla ice cream.

Short Story #16

Pepe thinks he will have plenty of time to tell Jezelle he may be interested in more than just friendship. He believed that they were soulmates and that their fate was written in the stars.

Then suddenly, time seems to be slipping away from his fingers because he is standing in front of well-wishers as a best man at Jezelle’s wedding. It seems completely unreal and he distinctly thinks if only he didn’t leave to further his studies in Switzerland to become a better person and to earn wealth. If only he only had more time to tell her his feelings, then she wouldn’t have been getting married to his best friend today.

When the priest asks if anyone objects to the union and to “speak now or forever hold your peace,” Pepe looks at the bride and she looks at him, a fleeting moment passing between them. He doesn’t object and when the couple kisses and became a new union, his heart sinks and shatter quite unexpectedly.

I didn’t know what I was going to write today until I was going through the Ideas folder on my pen drive. I came across this title and immediately thought of Depeche Mode’s ‘It’s No Good’ and viola! I had my Sunday short! 🙂

I’m going to take my time
I have all the time in the world
To make you mine
It is written in the stars above
The gods decree
You’ll be right here by my side
Right next to me
You can run, but you cannot hide

Don’t say you want me
Don’t say you need me
Don’t say you love me
It’s understood
Don’t say you’re happy
Out there without me
I know you can’t be
’cause it’s no good
