Was it hard letting go of him? It was, and it wasn’t because I missed him, because who he is right now isn’t who I miss, I don’t know who he is anymore. But it was hard letting go because I had this person who had became a huge chunk of my life, a person who lit fires in the darkest parts of me, and then they had left me, the fires burned out and I now had a gaping hole in my heart, and that’s why it hurts to let go. It happens in stages really, I had found myself one day laughing at how pathetic I was for ever loving him, but the next day I was on the floor of my shower begging God to bring him back to me. I think if anyone’s every experienced heartbreak you know how hard it is to do things without that person. It’s entirely way to hard to move on, and it’s also hard to accept. It’s also hard to grasp the fact that the person you had grown to love is now a stranger to you. You don’t talk to them anymore, but you hear about them and your stomach clenches and I can promise you it won’t feel too great. I’m sorry to tell you this but you’ll probably always have a spot for them in your heart, the hole they made can be filled by them, and only them. I truthfully don’t think I’ll ever let go of him fully either. (via @poemsporn)
I’m over you. It’s been two years since we split, why do I still think of you? Is that what love really is? To constantly think about someone even after you’ve told yourself that you’ve moved on? Maybe I’m just trying to convince myself that my feelings for you are dead and gone. I’m trying to erase the fact that when I hated everything about the world and the people in it you made me love myself and want to live. I still think about it, and not just at 2am when it’s cliche but at 8am when I’m brushing my teeth and 1pm when I’m going to get lunch and 6pm when I’m doing laundry. I think about it, us, how we were. I think of the good times when we laughed so hard our stomachs ached and we felt dizzy from the lack of oxygen, when we made up our future kids names and picked where we’d live and made fun of how we’d act when we were 40. I also think of the bad times, when you told me that what I had to offer wasn’t enough for you. Was I ever enough? I still question it all the time. At one point, you made me the happiest I had ever been, but then again near the end you made me the most miserable I had ever felt in my entire life. So I ask myself, still, did you really love me? and then I have to ask myself right after, am I really over you? -@poemporns
Backpacking is an adventure. You meet different kind of people from all walks of life. You have the chance to know and understand their culture and all.
When I went to Boracay, Philippines this year. I decided to book a hostel, for a change. And there are a lot to choose from.
However, after reading some of the reviews from different kind of Hostels in Boracay. I choose MNL beach hostel Boracay. One reason is that the room is air-condition. Because, other bed and breakfast hostels only have fan rooms. And I cannot live with that (not that I am very picky, I just need some cool place to standby when the outside world is at 25 degrees… you know what I mean)
MNL Boracay Beach Hostel is located just a 15-minute drive from Boracay Jetty Port, which is a 20-minute boat ride from Caticlan Jetty Port. It offers free Wi-Fi and 24-hour front desk service.
The rooms of MNL Boracay Beach Hostel has air condition, concrete flooring, and a wardrobe or a locker. There is a shared toilet and a shared bathroom. Some rooms also include an en-suite bathroom and balcony.
The hostel has a shared kitchen. The stay include continental breakfast. Toast and bananas are over flowing (no kidding).
They also have a bar. A Roof top where you can sit around and mingle with other travelers. Billiard table and a hammock.
There are also restaurants only a 10-minute walk away, offering local and Chinese cuisine.D’Mall is a 10-minute walk from the hostel. Kalibo International Airport is a 2-hour drive away.
Since It’s my first time staying on a Hostel. I can say that I enjoyed my stay. Because I met new friends and made new memories. I’ll definitely recommend and go back to this hostel.
Note: Book 1 month in advance during peak season (specially LA Boracay. They are normally fully book that time)
