My tripod, and dear, it needs a looooot of patience doing manual adjustments and things like that. Hahaha. Good afternoon!

Na sa aking paghithit, pinupuno ng iyong pagkatao ang aking mahihinang baga. Na sa aking pagbuga, hinahabol ang iyong paglaho ng aking pandama.

Alam mo iyong pakiramdam na parang bumabaliktad ang sikmura mo tapos parang may malamig na gumagapang mula sa binti hanggang sa batok mo tapos parang hindi ka mapakali at parang nagwawala iyong puso mo. Parang gusto mong maging malaya. Iyong parang uhaw ka sa adventure. Oo, totoo, iyan ang nararamdaman ko ngayon at gusto kong maglakbay.

“How about guys who don't only have a crush on you but also include you in their bedtime fantasies?”
— asked by Anonymous

Haha. Hello dear anon! Well, are you referring to Dayn’s anon? Hahaha. Well, ahm, I think it is okay since that is their own personal time and personal motive and other personal personal things and we cannot do things about that, but, if ever, they don’t have to tell me the details of their bedtime fantasies and what’s my part there. Hahaha. Plus, here are some more details if they think of me naked: I have layers of fats all over my body. Hahaha. Good afternoon!

“Thank you Jake. (I was the one who asked about the ask a guy out) We're not close kasi, so I'm so afraid to approach him and I don't even have his number. So the fastest way of communication that we have is through FB. :|”

Hala. I think it is always better no matter what to do it personally. I mean, like in a face to face communication. That would be more intimate, and, err, real. Haha.

“I'm wondering if your this personality type or a physical one. I mean when your choosing for your future partner.”
— asked by Anonymous

Hello dear anon! I guess I am 40% physical and 60% personality. Well, for the physical, of course, I have to consider if we would look good together, haha, and aside from that, if she could physically bear the burden of falling in love with me. Then for the personality type, I believe that when we grow old, it is the personality that stays. I like someone who is spontaneous and really adventurous who would also make plans for me, and surprise me, and bring me to different places, and is okay to look stupid with me and try new things with me. We would be perfect.

“Kuya, may nanliligaw sakin for more than a year na. 3rd year hs siya nagstart, sobrang ma-effort niyang tao, pero di ko talaga mafeel na magiging kami. I mean, wala akong gusto sa kanya, and naaappreciate ko yung efforts niya pero i only see him as a good friend. Then last week, he asked me kung may pag-asa ba siya o naghihintay siya sa wala. Sobrang nabother ako sa sinabi nya, and I dont know kung ano irereply ko sa kanya.”

Hello! Nako anon, mukhang sinagot mo na rin ang tanong niya dito sa TA na ito. Kung ako sa iyo, sasabihin kong wala na siyang pag-asa, kasi ikaw na rin mismo ang nagsabing wala, na hindi mo nakikitang magiging kayo. That’s it. I don’t think na deserve ko ang effort, na sobra sobra sabi mo nga, ng isang taong hindi ko naman kayang suklian ang effort na iyon. He deserves to be happy, and to make someone who would make him happy be happy, too. At ikaw, magfocus ka nalang doon sa tingin mong mafi-feel mong magiging kayo. Pakawalan mo na siya. Do not be selfish. Good afternoon!

“Hi Jake, what's your opinion about girls asking guys out on a date or confessing how they feel for them? I like this guy so much and my friends tell me to have the courage to tell him and ask him out pero I'm scared. But I've been so bothered for weeks now.”

That is a-okay! You see, we do not need to be caged in gender expectation and roles. Liberate yourself, and have the freedom to do what you want to do without considering whether you are a woman or a man. Just do it. And it is okay.

And personally, I find that amazing, and the girl really memorable. Go on. I would be hoping for something good for the two of you. Good afternoon dear anon!

“are you gay?”
— asked by Anonymous

Hello dear anon. I am not.

And I guess asking people that is rude because I think that it is really disrespectful if we ask a person if he is a man or if she is a woman, then you would ask someone if he or she is gay. See the point? And also, I believe that no one should ask for any social affirmation or permission on the things they want in their life, like as if them being gay is a disease or a sin. It is just tiring to see people asking labels, as if it is something that should always have an approval or an announcement to the public, on people who do not discriminate based on gender, who see love as not heterosexually biased, or give the freedom from stereotypes.

We need to grow up, dear anon. We are growing old, but in this matter, some are not growing up.

“Hi Kuya Jake. What can you say about students who transfer to UP? Do you agree that they're not supposed to be studying there since they didn't pass the entrance exam?”
— asked by Anonymous

Hello dear anon! I believe that that is not the appropriate way to look at the situation. First, if people do, or did, not study in UP in their first year in college, it doesn’t mean that they all didn’t pass the UPCAT. Some might have prioritize another school, or they were not able to take the UPCAT, and other things like that. And then, second, and I think the most important point, is that the entrance exam in UP should never be an excuse in not pursuing academic excellence. If they believe that UP can offer that kind of academic excellence and honor, then I salute them all for they did their best to be in UP. That if UP is their dream university, then I am glad that they did their best to achieve that goal, and that is something already to prove that someone is in hunger of knowledge, of good education, and the conviction to be an Isko/Iska no matter what. We should never discriminate people whether they pass the UPCAT or not. And same to the other students in the other universities. We all have our reasons and other factors that we consider in making our plans in college like deciding for which university to go and other things like that.

It’s perfectly okay. I believe that everyone has the right and freedom to have a crush on someone. Haha. And I appreciate that. Good afternoon dear anon!

Nagpatabi ako sa iyo ng isang koleksyon ng mga alaala. Ito ay mga alaala nating dalawa mula noon pa man hanggang ngayon. Hindi ko alam kung itinago mo pa iyon o kung itatago mo pa. Alam kong sa koleksyong iyon, hindi puro magaganda ang iyong makikita. May mga panahong makulimlim ang langit, o malakas ang buhos ng ulan, o nakakatakot ang alon ng dagat. Parang tayo. Hindi puro matitingkad na sinag ng araw, o mga boses at halakhakan, o mga nakaw na sandaling nasa atin ang mundo nating dalawa. Kapag sumilip tayo rito, sigurado ay masasaktan tayo. Pero mayroon din namang mabubuting alaala. Mayroon din, maniwala ka. Marami. Kung kaya ay sana ay itabi mo pa rin ang koleksyon ng mga alaala nating nilikha, at sana ay gumawa pa rin tayo sa susunod. Iyon ang paborito kong koleksyon, at hindi ko siya ikinahon, dahil alam kong hindi magkakasiya ang mga alaala para sa isang habambuhay sa isang kahon lamang.

"May iba rin akong mundo."

"Ako kasi, pinili kong wala na. Kasi akala ko, ikaw na ang mundo ko. Na iniwan ko na ang lahat nang makilala ka kasi ikaw ang pinili kong maging mundo ko. Akala ko tama iyon. Akala ko, matutuwa ka pa."

"Nahihirapan ako. May sarili rin kasi akong mundo."

"Sige, huwag kang mag-alala. Susubukan kong ihiwalay na rin ang mundo ko sa mundong inakala kong mundo nating dalawa. Siguro, mga magulang ko lang talaga ang naniniwala na ang mundo nila ay ang isa’t isa."
