Date a girl who tweets
By Antoinette Jadaone (The Philippine Star) Updated June 23, 2012 12:00 AM
MANILA, Philippines - Date a girl who tweets. And please, follow her. Even better, follow her before she follows you. She will be happy when she learns about that, and she will let the world know about it, but you will never be sure that it’s because of you. She will either tweet a cryptic happy statement or RT the @DalaiLama (e.g. “The purpose of our lives is to be happy.”). She will quote Steve Jobs right after, so she’ll confuse you. But really, trust me, that’s still about you.
Date a girl who tweets. She knows a lot. She knows about the Miami-Oklahoma Finals, and she’ll RT @nba like a real true-blue fan. Support her team; you’ll know which one immediately. She’ll remember to shout out her “Go OKCs!” or “Go Heats!” on the day of the game. If you’re lucky, it’ll be on caps lock. She knows about the Smashing Pumpkins concert this August, about the violence in Syria and the elections in Greece, about Uniqlo, Girls, and that author’s death. Suddenly, he’s her favorite author, and she’s really affected by his death. Cry with her, console her, send her a virtual hug. (It’s (((H))), by the way.) Don’t worry, it won’t take too long; she’ll be all right after 10 minutes. She just finished downloading Game of Thrones.
She not only knows a lot, she has a lot to say about each of them, too. Find her opinions on her Twitter feed. Her thoughts on the Pacquiao-Bradley fight? The CJ trial? The Bayo ad? They’re there. Her thoughts on Independence Day? Prometheus? Traffic sa EDSA? Taxi drivers who ask for additional charge? Raining too hard? Her plane to Hong Kong being three hours delayed? They’re all there. If you’re lucky, they’ll come with #justsayin or #IMHO. It will save you time. Be careful about putting her on the spot. Give her time to compose her thoughts. Be patient, she’s still Googling them.
Date a girl who tweets, because she’s so “cool” and “witty” and “lives life to the fullest,” and sometimes, you can even quote her on that. She tweets that she just booked tickets to this beautiful island and this Asian city and that European destination, she’s so #excited! She tweets that she really, really, really wants to read 50 Shades of Grey, she’s so #excited to buy the book! (She said that aboutHunger Games and Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, too, by the way. She never tweeted about actually starting to read them though.) She tweets about watching the Snow Patrol in August, she’s so #excited! She’s trying surfing next month, and paragliding the month after, and probably glassblowing the month after that, she’s yeah, so #excited! (She’s so excited, she might even forget to do all of those come next month.) She’s witty, too: you can RT her tweets. In fact, she’ll most likely RT your RT, too. She loves that.
Date a girl who tweets, and it will be fairly easy to know if she likes you. She tweets about your dinner and lets Foursquare know about it. She posts a mysterious one- to three-word tweet that has kilig written all over it. She posts a picture of your “heavenly Angus beef steak with yummy mashed potato on the side” with you in the background. If she likes you a lot, she might include herself in the picture, too. She quotes sweet lines from a song that’s #nowplaying, and when her friend asks her what’s up, she says, “Oh, nothing, I just remembered this song,” you know it’s because of you. She RTs romantic film quotes. Pray it’s @Notebook; that would be a dead giveaway.
Of course, it also isn’t hard to know if she hates your guts. If you really broke her heart, she will let her followers know. That includes you, obviously. She will RT quotes on karma (not @DalaiLama’s good karma). She will post tweets on how some people can be “very rude and so full of themselves na feeling ang gwapo-gwapo nila na God’s gift to women when in reality, they’re nothing but douchebags with the maturity level of a three-year-old! You #jerk!” If you’re lucky, she will cross-post it on her Facebook and Tumblr. She will not mention you, don’t worry — her friends will. You will be tormented by DMs from her angry BFFs. You will be forced to unfollow her and her friends, and the @DalaiLama. You will be out of Twitter until she finally moves on. It will be quite a while, you bastard.
So yeah, better date a girl who reads.

- But hey, I read too!
You say that you love rain, but you open your umbrella when it rains. You say that you love the sun, but you find a shadow spot when the sun shines. You say that you love the wind, but you close your windows when wind blows. This is why I am afraid, you say that you love me too.William Shakespeare (via modernise)
People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life.
A true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to live with a soul mate forever? Nah. Too painful. Soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you, and then leave.
A soul mates purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light can get in, make you so desperate and out of control that you have to transform your life, then introduce you to your spiritual master.
— I guess that’s the purpose of it.
Taft Avenue has been a boring place for us lately so Mickey and I kept on searching for new hang-out places. It was last December when we saw “Moonleaf Planner” trending on Twitter and with our curiosity, we began searching this Moonleaf thingy that everyone is craving for. We felt so relieved to find a Moonleaf branch within our vicinity!
It was Christmas vacation then when we had our first Moonleaf experience.
It started with “patingi-tingi” visits until we almost spend our mini dates at Moonleaf HP Village Square everyday. After school, Moonleaf would be our instant pick-me-upper. As in naadik kami, no doubt! Yummy talaga ng blends nila eh!
We could say that Moonleaf has already been a part of our lives as a couple. My boyfriend and I would share over a slice of cake or cookies while sipping our favorite Moonleaf drinks. His bias drink is the Wintermelon blend, while mine is the Oolong blend.
**This cake is PERFECT! It has the right moisture and texture, the wholesome icing that isn’t so sweet and too soft, and a reasonable price of P65! – M
To kill time, and to relieve our stress as well, he would sketch me while I’m doing my homework. (Ang sweet naman, ako lagi ang model nya diba! No choice eh! Chot!) Sometimes, we doodle together, write love notes for each other, then pin them on the doodle board afterwards. He would also write some sweet nothings on my Moonleaf planner at randon times. Trololol~
Here’s are some of the artworks that we made together:
Icing on the cake…
See… I claimed my planner here too!
Love birds, tiab. Thank you Moonleaf for being a part of our love story. <3
PS: We are doing a collab with ML soon. Hoping for the best.
