Dear John: Happy Birthday!

It’s rather difficult to write on a happy note when you still haven’t recovered from a not-so-sensible argument, with details that I need not to disclose. Note: I didn’t have an argument with my boyfriend last night. But then again, this post is not about whining; I’m not into staining this page with blah-blahs!  I just thought of letting you know my current state while I am writing this. Nonetheless, I still have all the more reason to be ecstatic, because yeah, today is a special day for someone very dear to me.


There’s this guy with an undeniable love for music (and me?? =p). He’s a teacher and he dreams of someday becoming his alumni’s Dean for the College of Music. He works five days a week, from Monday to Friday, beats up his masteral studies every first and third Saturday of the month, and reviews for the LET (licensure examination for teachers) every Saturday and Sunday, from 9:00 am to 5 pm; and it doesn’t end there! Currently, he is also handling two choral groups, does choir practice every Saturday, serves two churches every Sunday, and occasionally gives some private piano tutorials if he still have time to spare (oh believe me, he still does!). When his entire superman duties are done, he takes off his heroic suit, and just be that simple person I fell in love with. I know! Cheesy right? But that’s how it goes for him and that’s just me being hopeless romantic.

It’s his birthday today and I only have two wishes for him:

1. Good health – For him to be able to get through the life of a hero. Mr. Steel Man doesn’t get tired, does he? But really, all these things that he does, I  think it’s almost crazy, considering that he barely has time left to sleep and pamper himself. I worry about his health, because he works too much, and he’s addicted to the adrenaline, and that he feels weak when he doesn’t work like mad, and that I think that’s so weird of him. I sometimes wanna slap him for choosing stress over comfort. But, oh well, he loves what he’s doing, and I’m proud of him, even if it leaves me with nothing but pray for his health.

2. Live His Dream – His dream is ever so clear right before my very eyes, and I can see how beautiful that dream is once it unfolds over time. As a proud girlfriend, I could wish nothing but for him to live his dream. I’d be the happiest when that day comes.

Aaaand! Yeah, that’s it.

But no, wait! here’s more…because I’m mushy like that! =p

Dear John,

I know you don’t read my blogs, because you barely have time, and that you’re not into reading so much of my blabs. But just in case you’re here, I want to let you know that you are such a wonderful blessing. I know it’s your birthday, and that you’re the one who’s supposed to receive gifts (don’t worry, I have prepared one already =p), but I just feel like saying that having you has been and always will be the best gift I have ever received in my life, ever! I love you to bits, and even if we have our rough times, you will still hold the biggest part of my heart (and there goes the mushiness..) But you already know that, right? So yeah,

(A photo of him during his graduation recital last March 2010)
(And yeah, that’s me. I know I look blah, but whatever…hehe)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! We’re aging fast, but who cares? Love you! ♥♥♥
