High School Heartbreak :-(
When my best friend and I attended the concert of my ultimate crush, Daniel Padilla, we got the best view in front of the stage. Because of my period, I felt so uneasy that night as I danced along Daniel's songs... and then I felt a sudden gush! Eek! I hurriedly ran to the nearest bathroom, and when I got back, I saw my BFF onstage being serenaded by Daniel. At that moment, I was so bummed! I could have been onstage with him, too!
Prom night was just around the corner, which got me all excited again since Daniel was invited to be our prom king. ♥ ♥ ♥ I was sure I was going to meet my dream guy—and possibly get chosen as his prom queen, too! But before I left our house, I suddenly got my period! Could the timing be any worse?
At prom, I felt so conscious and uncomfortable. Just when I wanted to dance, I felt a sudden gush so I rushed to the bathroom. When I got back, my whole world slipped away as I saw Daniel dancing with my best friend, his chosen prom queen. It’s unfair how I missed MY perfect moment yet again just because I had to make sure everything was going alright with my pad.
Lesson (not only) for Today
I wanted to blame the unfair circumstances of life for what happened, but I know there’s only one person to blame—me. Sadly, I settled with my pad, which has brought me nothing but constant worrying, endless trips to the comfort room, and the worst, missing out on Daniel!
But now, I refuse to allow my period to stop me from doing anything. As soon as I saw the Whisper Cottony Clean commercial, I was sold! I knew that I needed to switch.
After using Whisper Cottony Clean, I went from being awesome to being wonderstruckingly fantastic! I’m so happy I have discovered that Whisper has a cotton variant (I used to think they only had the purple one with the mesh top). Now, even with my period, I feel super comfortable because of its soft cottony cover that keeps me feeling clean all day! Not only that, I am confident because it is longer than a regular pad, so it fits me better, protecting me from stain. I can move freely and I don’t have to worry about wearing light-colored bottoms even with my period. I know Whisper’s got my back!
Senior High Highlights! ♥ ♥ ♥
I was also able to enjoy the remaining high school events. And get this, I had my period during my high school graduation. But this time, I felt super comfortable and confident, all thanks to Whisper Cottony Clean! During my friend’s graduation bash, I was having so much fun dancing to Daniel Padilla’s “Hinahanaphanap Kita” when suddenly, someone tapped me on my shoulder. I turned around and couldn’t believe that Daniel was looking straight at me! He asked if he could join me and my friends since we looked like we were having so much fun. Of course I said yes! Good thing that my period didn’t get the best of me. And at last, Daniel saw the real me—fun, confident, and unstoppable! So yes, even though I wasn’t the girl he serenaded or his chosen prom queen, at that moment, I felt like I was the queen of the world!
Whisper now has a cotton pad!
All-Day Confident is longer than the regular pad—so there's more protection from stains.

Hi! It's been so long since I planned to post my story in another platform aside from wattpad and now here I am, hoping that my story can be featured here.
My story is entitle "Who Are You," it's a tagalog-english teen fiction story so I hope, those filipinos who visit here can read my story!
WHO ARE YOU: PRELUDE
Sinungaling na ba ako kung sasabihin ko sa inyo ang pangalan ko? Hindi ako sure kung anong sasabihin kong pangalan ko pero may nagsasabi sa aking wag nalang magpakilala sa inyo.
May gusto lang naman akong itanong... Paano kung may makilala ka sa kasalukuyan na nagpapaalala sayo sa nakaraan? Anong gagawin mo kung ang nakilala mo sa kasalukuyan ay may tinatago pa lang sikreto na kahit siya mismo ay walang alam pero may kinalaman sa iyong nakaraan? Anong gagawin mo kung ang dalawang ito ay may koneksyon? Anong pipiliin mo? Ang nakilala mo sa nakaraan? O ang nagpakilala bilang ibang tao sa kasalukuyan? Past? Or Present?
There was this guy I dated for a while but things didn't turn out well. I was so into him that one night I can't stop thinking about him, I've decided to send his MOM a message on facebook confessing how much I like her son. I wish it ended there but no. I had to make it so emotional, lengthy and detailed like the drama queen I am. Luckily, it went to message request so I'm hoping she hasn't really read it yet. Up until this day it makes me cringe whenever I think about it but hey, whenever it pops in my mind I make myself laugh too so thank you self for being unbelievably shameless and brave when it comes to love. I may age faster because I have made a lot of cringe-worthy moments that I constantly make faces out of embarrassment just reflecting on my antics but I know I've made more hilarious memories than what ifs and somehow that makes the disappointments feel more like assurances that I have gave it my all and I have lived as honest (maybe a little to honest) as I could. #ItsOnlyNatural #CanBnatural
I've been investing in arts, photography, and writing. I've also got back to reading the other day and I finished reading this amazing book entitled 300 Things I Hope by Iain S. Thomas. It is all about the things the author hopes his readers to do in all aspects of life. So, I decided to make a version of it with all of the things I'm hoping for.
I hope I get to see my friends be successful in life. I hope to make a big mural someday. I hope to be a well-known artist like the artists I look up to. I hope to marry the person I am in love with today. I hope to be a little kinder to myself. I hope to see happiness even in the smallest things. I hope to travel the world. I hope to be a good mother and a wife to my future family. I hope to have my artworks displayed in a gallery or an exhibit. I hope to learn more about creative writing. I hope I won't learn how to get tired and give up my passion. I hope I won't get too hard on myself whenever I don't get the results I've been wanting to see in my works. I hope to love myself more even on the days I hate it the most. I hope to lead and empower women; to be their voice and for them to believe in themselves that they can be the woman they look up to. And when I've reached my limit of these things, I hope I won't get tired of reminding myself that my emotions don't make me weak, hence, makes me stronger. These are some of the things I always hope for. What about you? What are you hoping for?
I started fixing myself this quarantine. I mean, I started trying makeup products. As a teen, I'm on my phone almost every hour of the day, scroll on my social media accounts, especially Instagram, and also Pinterest where you get to see nice and pleasing photography by bunch of amazing and beautiful people from different parts of the world. So I started taking my own as well. I did not know that taking your own photo and try to get an Instagramable one is sooooooooo hard, it's exhausting. I do not have alot of space in my room, and I would definitely not do it outside our house because of Corona Virus, and I don't want to be seen by our neighbors HAHA so I have no choice but to make tiis inside my room.
Out of atleast 25 shots, only 2 are a nice picture. While I'm all sweaty and tired, I am proud of what I could do beyond my comfort zone. And this definitely built my self confidence, (and I secret love the compliments I received from both people I know and don't know) It's not my first time visiting in here, Candy! But I'm new to writing my thoughts and experiences, so bare with me HAHA.
Until next time!
