Don’t ever trust Google translate.

Halaman, or Plant in English, is a living organism typically growing in a permanent site, absorbing water and inorganic substances through its roots, and synthesizing nutrients in its leaves by photosynthesis using the green pigment chlorophyll…okay, stop. In order words, they’re asexual living organisms.

We used the word Halaman to analogize the state of being of someone who doesn’t have any sexual feelings or desires to the opposite sex. Being asexual is also, somewhat, relates to being a celibate–a person who abstains from marriage and sexual relations.  However, celibacy is already far from being a halaman. Probably, the nearest word to describe this is Alexythimia.

Alexythimia derives from Greek, which literally means, having no words for emotions. According to Psychiatrictimes.comalexithymia implies a glitch in the process that permits the expression of feelings in words that capture the body’s involvement in these feelings. Though this is a very specific term for emotionally detached people… ooppss… did I just say “emotionally detached?” Yes, that is right. Halaman people are emotionally detached people.

You mad at me for beating around the bush? Well, I just want to let you know the clinical term for this. Peace!

So to those people who doesn’t really give a piece of sh*t about St. Valentine’s Day or others call it, Self Awareness Day or Independence Day, I made some compilation of quotes, tweets, and memes for you.

1) This time when you starred at a Jollibee commercial

“I never felt like a superstar before!”

2) When you’re just really dead on the inside

3) Or maybe your zodiac sign is really Aquarius?

6) When your friend is annoying you with food

7) Hail to the Halaman Anthem!

Even though you’re a halaman, don’t worry. There’s still someone out there who loves you (even though you won’t ever love them back, perhaps?).

Happy Halaman Day!

Bye College! Hello Adult Life!

 

Hi! This is the author speaking (or writing). Well, enough with the corny introduction, I’m here to show you what I did on the day of my college commencement exercise.

Since my graduation is early in the morning, 8:00 AM to be exact, I did my own make-up and styling. It’s a good thing that I already went to wax and thread out those unwanted hair, so I’ll be lookin’ fresh on my graduation day (yow!).

Add that Snapchat filter for a PAK! GANERN! effects

My grandma came for my graduation, so I’m really happy and excited!! (Doki doki suru!!)

Selfie with my Madera the first!

My whole family was there too! Who wouldn’t be happy to rock their toga?

Coz selfie’s the way!

Here’s some live videos of my graduation, well most of the content are just me being the overly active me. (Open link below to view videos)

I spy… Euei!

These past 3 years has been one hella ride. College taught me and showed me a lot of things. Who would’ve thought that a half-hearted, unconfident, self-doubting Faye would turn out to be a strong, versatile, and mature Euei? I never did. I just believed in myself that whatever trial I may encounter, I can surpass it.

Now, that I finally put the tassel on my left, I am ready to fully pursue my dreams. I just need to plow out some weeds I guess?

Adult life… bring it on!

Char!

To all students who are doubting right now like I did before, if everybody’s telling you that you can’t do it, sino ba sila? sila ba ikaw? NO. You know your capacities and capabilities. Why not try first before giving up? I promise you won’t regret it.

That’s all. Au revoir!

またね!

Mata ne!
