I’m a huge Hunger Games fan. I hate all the morbid stuff and I hate imagining or seeing blood but I still love that series. Today I realized that the main reason I loved those books and those movies was because I’ve always wanted to be Katniss.
I know you weren’t expecting anything from me today especially since I have posted a blog yesterday. Actually that blog has been sitting in my Evernote app for days, waiting to be posted. I’m just too busy and sad to notice that I am totally out of schedule. Today, however, I am feeling extra… I don’t know. I just wanted to write something meaningful… or at least something I really want to write.
SO today I thought I’d give myself a 5-minute writing breather to type down every random thing that comes to my mind.
Have you ever talked to someone who assumed you were something or someone else and you were left to wonder: “What? Why? Who the heck am I?”
Here’s a good example: Hannah Hart, a YouTuber also known for her web series My Drunk Kitchen, revealed a lot of things about her recently on a podcast called Ear Biscuits, by fellow YouTubers Rhett McLoughlin and Link Neal. One of those things is that when she was a kid she used to go up the roof of the elementary with her friends and throw rocks at cars passing by. One time, a rock missed and shattered a classroom’s glass window and when school began she told her teacher that she was the one who threw the rock. The teacher dismissed her saying, “No, Hannah, you didn’t do this. I know you. I know that you’re trying to cover up for your friends, but I know you didn’t do it.” At that Hannah left, feeling really bad for getting other people in trouble and thinking, “Who am I?”
I spent three days without electricity, cell signal and Internet. Where was I this weekend? I went away with three of my closest friends to a top secret island where no one will find us.
We went on a roadtrip to Zambales and rode a boat to this beautiful island called the Anawangin Cove. I tell you, you will never be prepared enough for everything Anawangin has to offer (see second sentence of this post). So, if you’re planning on retracing our footsteps to Anawangin sometime soon, here is a checklist of the things you should pack and prepare as well as a brief instruction on how to get there based on what we have encountered last weekend.
DISCLAIMER FOR FOREIGN FRIENDS: There is a huge chance that you will be persuaded to come to the Philippines and experience Anawangin for yourself after reading this blog so stay strong and be prepared.
