It has been two years since we made it official. It certainly feels longer, maybe because the courtship took us more than two years. Haha. The point is, I’m glad to be here and to be happy and to ask for nothing more. I guess I’m pretty lucky to be this happy after two years of petty bickering and endless laughter.
Ever since I got in a relationship, people have been telling me to not take it too seriously. But I don’t think I can do that. I can’t look at Alex and not think that it’s real. Hee.
I’m just glad that it’s Alex that I chose. And I’m just glad that I’m the one he chose. (HEHEHEHE) I guess we’re pretty lucky that we chose each other. Haha. But seriously, I’m just glad that our choices had led us here, and I seriously don’t want to be anywhere else. I haven’t expressed it enough but I’m pretty luck to have someone like Alex.On our anniversary, we didn’t do anything out of the ordinary. But instead of eating at Chicboy (his favorite) or Jollibee (my favorite!!!!!!), we ate at Kenny Roger’s. Haha. And because I’m the slowest eater in the entire world, we were the last ones in the place. They even already turned off the A/C, that’s why Alex kept telling me to eat faster. Heh. Well, I’m sorry if I can’t stop talking when I’m in his company.
After dinner, MOA was closing already. What’s new. Haha! I wanted to ride the ferris wheel with him but watching 21 Jumpstreet seemed more fun. I wanted to watch that movie since I heard about it! We watched the last full show and had quite a lot of fun watching the movie. It was so funny! Haha. I’m glad Alex enjoyed the movie because it was my choice, and yeah.
But the highlight of our movie-watching was when he randomly blurted out during the prom scene that he wished he went to prom with me. It took me off-guard because he never said anything like that before. It’s just that it seemed to me that his past is definitely apart from his present. He doesn’t say weird things like he wished he met me sooner, etc. Besides, he was with someone else in high school (therefore went to prom with that someone) which I gladly reminded him. But it’s nice that he said something like that because I always say I wish to see him in a high school uniform, I wish we went to high school together, I wish to cheer him on during intramurals, etc. And for him to say something like that is quite touching. I guess I’m really the only one who’d understand why it’s such a big deal. I don’t know.
The point is, I’m just glad we’re together. Well, we don’t see each other as much but at least we see each other. At least we make time to see each other even though it’s so late in the night but it’s really the only time we have. He puts so much effort to make all this work, but he makes it seem so effortless. And I thank him for never complaining for waking up early or for not having enough sleep since the time he was supposed to use for sleeping is spent on traveling. And I do hope that I’m making as much effort even though he doesn’t ask anything in return at all.
I have so much to be thankful for. We may not be happy and laughing all the time but at least we get over any feud or misunderstanding. I’m thankful that we always work it out and never let any problem get any bigger.
As a present, I made a scrapbook for him despite the fact that I’m the worst scrapbook-maker of all time. I just wanted to give him something personal every anniversary. Like last year, I gave him our first couple shirt. Yes, first couple shirt because I’m already thinking of the next one and he can’t do anything about it!
In the scrapbook, I list down 20 reasons why I love him which is rather silly because I have infinite reasons to love him. Wehe. 🙂
No, I won’t divulge in here the 20 reasons. But I can tell you that it’s full of keso stuff like, “Hindi ko alam kung nameet mo ang standards ko, o naging standards ko lahat ng ‘yun kasi nameet kita.” WEHEHE. Don’t worry, not everything is as barf-inducing. I actually gave it to him once we got back to my dorm. I left him the scrapbook when I went inside to get my laptop. I looked back and saw him smiling. I think. And it made me realize that the lack of sleep and crazy thinking of ways to be creative when I’m really not were so worth it. At least I think he liked it. Well, he had a pretty good time laughing at my designs.
So yes. We’re two years and counting, and we’re still as keso as hell.
So Alex, thank you for making me smile the past six years and making me the happiest the past two. 🙂
