About veraparrocha

I am a dreamer. I may be a goddess, but i ain't superwoman. :) i eat a lot. i love stars...laminating films, papers, pens, markers, chalks, pillows, BOOKS and anything Korean... i love bags and shoes and weddings... i am loud and shy... stupid and witty... snobbish and friendly... hardworking and lazy... i... frown and smile... cry and laugh... love and hate... i am practically a little of everything!


Much has happened since the last time I was here. I was in my 20s when I wrote my last post and now I’m back, starting the 3rd decade of my existence. Fifteen years ago, I thought I’d be successful by the time I reach this age. Yet, here I am still trying to figure out my life’s purpose.

My line of thought has always been all over the place and I think that’s part of the reason why I can’t make up a certain goal I wish to pursue. I want to move someplace else, I want finish my masters, I want to get married.

There are a lot of things I want but I cannot seem to make the first step towards it. What do I do? I want to move, I don’t have enough money. I want to go back to school, I am not smart enough. I want to get married, I am not interesting enough. I don’t seem to have the means and energy for the things that I want for myself. I live my life on a daily basis. No plans whatsoever. I feel like a stray dog wandering the streets without purpose.

5 Things I Would Like To Tell My Future Love

In as much as I want to write about what happened or what I felt then and what I feel now, I know I am still not in anyway ready to put it into words. I know it would still sound bitter and pathetic. I also want to be positive and write to my future love but I know that whatever comes out of me would still have a trace of him. This article may have missed a couple of things I would want to tell my future love, but it gives an unbiased message to whoever he’ll be.

Thought Catalog

1. Go on as many adventures as possible.

I hope you’re going everywhere and doing everything. Hang out with your friends. Travel a lot. See as much of the world as possible. Try as many exotic foods as you can. Climb mountains. Join Fun Runs. Go diving and skydiving. Explore this beautiful world. I hope you’re starting to check off items on your bucket list because one day, when we’re finally together, I would like to hear all about it. One day you will share all those stories with me, and maybe we’ll try to do them together too.

2. Find yourself.

I hope you’re taking time to get to know yourself. Take time analyzing what you really want to do in life. Love yourself and be strong for yourself. Some people enjoy being needed but I what I like is to be wanted. You are your own person and…

Slip Away

In a world that’s full of strangers, they had reasons to divide us.
I kept trying just to be with you. And the most I was fearing, losing my path from you, happened.
Still, I’ll always remember those precious times with you.

Singing My Heart Out

Better in Time
Leona Lewis

It’s been the longest winter without you,
I didn’t know where to turn to.
See, somehow I can’t forget you,
After all that we’ve been through.

Going, coming… thought I heard a knock
Who’s there? No one
Thinking that I deserve it
Now I realize that I really didn’t know,

If you didn’t notice, you mean everything.
Quickly I’m learning to love again,
All I know is, I’m gon’ be okay

Thought I couldn’t live without you
It’s gonna hurt when it heals too, ooh yeah
(It’ll all get better in time)
And even though I really love you,
I’m gonna smile cause I deserve to
It’ll all get better in time

I couldn’t turn on the TV,
Without something that’ll remind me
Was it all that easy
To just put aside your feelings?
If I’m dreaming, don’t wanna lie,
Hurt my feelings

But that’s the path
I believe in,
And I know time will heal it
If you didn’t notice, well
You mean everything.
Quickly I’m learning (oooh) to love again,
All I know is I’m gon’ be okay

Thought I couldn’t live without you
It’s gonna hurt when it heals too, ooh yeah
(It’ll all get better in time)
And even though I really love you,
I’m gonna smile cause I deserve to, ooooooh
It’ll all get better in time

Since there’s no more you and me (no more you and me)
It’s time I let you go so I can be free
And live my life how it should be. (and I know, and I know)
No matter how hard it is,
I’ll be fine without you, Yes I will.

Thought I couldn’t live without you
It’s gonna hurt when it heals too ohhhh
It’ll all get better in time ooooh
And even though I really love you
I’m gonna smile cause I deserve to (yes I do)
It’ll all get better in time, woah

Thought I couldn’t live without you
It’s gonna hurt when it heals too, yeahh
It’ll all get better in time
And even though I really love you
I’m gonna smile cause I deserve to

Assuming Lang Si Ako

The Bro: Hi! Did you do something to your hair?
Me: Sorry. I didn’t comb my hair. Hehehe.
The Bro: No. It looks good.
Me: Yeah. Haha.
The Bro: No, I’m serious. You look great. I rarely give compliments but when I do, I mean it. Oh, by the way, do you know what day is it tomorrow?
Kid: Tomorrow’s Chinese New Year.
The Bro: No, stup*d. Chinese New Year is on the 31st.
Me: Tomorrow’s the day before Chinese New Year. Hahaha.
The Bro: Yeah! Do you have anything you want for Chinese New Year?
Kid: She wants a “non-fat” pizza.
The Bro: Really? Calzone has. So we’re having dinner tomorrow. Would you like to join us?
Me: Haha. Kid, homework?
Kid: [whispering] I can’t believe he said a compliment!

No Frills. Just Love.

No frills.

I am still hurting.

But I think this break-up is doing me some good…
Well, besides the lady mustache…Don’t I look gorgeous?! LOL!

Seven years,
six months,
ten days.

I am bitter.
I am insecure.
I am depressed.
I know I am still hurting.

New House. New Responsibilities.

Today marks my second week in this new house. From our humble abode in Keuangan (in Cilandak), we now live in a much bigger house near Permata Hijau.

The night I arrived back from the Philippines, I already felt the stress of unpacking. Everything I have is still inside tightly sealed boxes. I was so tired from my flight that I decided to sleep right after arriving. But as it turned out, I stood up from the bed for 4 times to search for my towel, clothes to wear for work, toiletries, and blanket before I finally got to sleep straight.

The house itself is beautiful. Really big and very spacious. I have a bigger room now (Yay!). But as of right now, that is the only thing nice about this new home. Bigger house means bigger electricity bill. Longer distance from work means shorter sleeping time. New place means unfamiliarity with the area. I just wish I’m a little more adventurous. I admit I’m still afraid of getting lost around this big city.

Oh well, maybe I just need a little more time to get used to this new place. For now, I still have a lot of unpacking and tidying up to do.

The Magna Cum Laude

The Magna Cum Laude

I really feel bad that I can’t go home to the Philippines tomorrow. It would have been a great time to be with the family because tomorrow our baby girl will be graduating from college.

I remember you telling Mama that I was your favorite sister even if I am cranky most of the time. So before I sleep, let me tell the whole world how proud I am of you. Forgive me for letting the whole world know how intelligent you are.

Salutatorian, St. Mary’s College, QC. Batch 2004
High Honors, Philippine Science High School, Diliman. Batch 2008

Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering at the University of the Philippines, Diliman.
Oblation Scholar (Top 50 in the UPCAT).
DOST Scholar.
Petron Scholar.
Executive Officer for Academic Affairs – UP Academic League of Chemical Engineering Students

Gel, you’ve got the whole package. Beauty and brains, they say. But what I love most about you is that you have the heart. You have a big heart for everyone. You are always ready to help. In everything you do, you don’t just use your head, your heart always plays a part and you never forget to enjoy the moment.
You are God-fearing. And it’s funny how you would ask us to pray for you because you don’t like praying to God just to ask favors.
Chemical Engineering was not a joke and I have seen you in your down days of being a student. But you made it through with much diligence that you absolutely deserve all the honors that you received and will be receiving. I know you know how proud we are of you.
I love you. Be very beautiful tomorrow. Enjoy your graduation. Congratulations. 🙂 -Ate Chi
