Yes I have. When I start a relation with my boyfriend, I don't want my friends to know. So I didn't tell them anything about him. But after my class in university, I went with my boyfriend to eat something. Unfortunately I met my best friends from university in this restaurant and they don't call me almost two weeks .

I met my boyfriend when we went a trip. At this time, his seat is infront of mine in express car. When I took photos of library opening ceremony, he asked me if he had took photos for me. It isn't very unusual way. Now we broke up. I miss him very much but he can't never know how I miss him.

When I was in a school scout camp in 10th grade, I played a football game with another school from another village and there was an arrogant player said we will defeat you but we did that and a problem has occurred. After that, at the beginning of university in the first year, we lived with each other in the same student housing.

Hey..! I'm from the Philippines and I'm currently studying in highschool. I have always dreamed of going to the United Kingdom someday. That's why, at my young age I pursued studying and practicing on how to speak in English properly. I hope one day I could have a conversation with a British person for REAL. Anyway, thank you so much for making this awesome website!
