How to read all the tweets from people you follow without scrolling on your entire timeline

It's the struggle of twitter. There are days when you just want to read tweets from your close friends, or the celebrities you're pegging, or the boy band your stalking. But you follow more than 200+ random accounts so the tweets you wanna read get overlooked by you scrolling so fast mindlessly.

Only a few people may know this feature because I guess we're not that kind of people who dedicate time to explore the features of this social media platform. But this thing is very much helpful. 

It's called LIST. I have been using this ever since I started Twitter. And I've been reading all the tweets and even the retweets from my school mates, from the people in my hometown, from the celebrity guys I stalk, from my favorite authors, and from some other people that I grouped into a List. Even if I didn't log in for days, I don't have to scroll my entire timeline to read everything. And sometimes the only tweets you wanna read are from the people you know and people you stalk, sans the tweets from random twitter accounts.

Here's how it works.

The Heart Rides On

“I love you. I love your eyes. I love your smell. I love your hair. I love your laugh. I love your skin. I love everything inside you. And I’ll try to make all the parts that I find, happy.
Because you make me happy. So much.”

– Iain Thomas

Coffee xx

I am writing you this because I was in a coffee shop earlier today and the bitter-sweet taste of the coffee I was drinking reminded me of your lips. And how one sip from the cup transported me back to the time when we were lurking under the big mango tree on an abandoned bridge at 12 midnight being the invincible kids that we are—the hushed whispers, the goosebumps, and the kisses and the kisses and the kisses.

I can still hear your rasp voice saying you just had a cup of coffee before coming to our little rendezvous. And I can still feel the hair on the back of my neck prickling from the heat of your breath against my ear when you whisper the words I love you over and over and over again, like a prayer.

I was brought back out of my sudden recollection of memories when I realized I was unconsciously scribbling your name on the tissue paper. So I decided to write a note to tell you that I remembered you today and hope that you're doing well. There was a bit of coffee stain on the tissue, if you wouldn't mind. And I hope whoever finds this, it makes them remember of a love they once had. And if somehow the Universe plays a joke on us and you'd be the one to find this, I hope you know that it was me, and I hope that you remember.

“I keep thinking you already know. I keep thinking I’ve sent you letters that were only ever written in my mind”

The Mayumi and Pogita story

original and unedited manuscript
written by: Joan M. Magsino



Nagparamdam.
Nagpasaya.
Nangako.
Nang-iwan.

Itago natin siya sa pangalang Pogita. Matangkad, maganda ang kanyang pangangatawan at katamtaman ang kanyang kulay. Siya ang una mong mapapansin sa kanilang barkada..

Isang gabi, nagpunta si Pogita sa kaarawan ng isang kaibigan at nabighani siya sa isang babaeng tila isang anghel kung iyong sisilayan, mapupula ang kanyang mga labi at tila nangungusap ang kanyang mga mata. Siya si Mayumi—probinsiyana. Tahimik sa una, may sariling paniniwala, makulit ngunit masayahin naman. 

Di nagtagal ay nagpakilala si  Pogita kay Mayumi. Sa pamamagitan ng pagmessage sa facebook siya unang nagpakilala. “Hi.” Ngunit hindi ito nireplyan ni Mayumi. Kinaumagahan pag dating sa eskwelahan, nagulat na lamang si Mayumi nang puntahan siya nito sa kanyang silid aralan ng kaibigang nagdiwang ng kanyang kaarawan noong gabi, “Hoy Joan, may gustong makipagkilala sayo!” Nagpanggap si Mayumi na walang narinig. Nang pangalawang ulit ng kaibigan ay sinabi na ang pangalan ng binatang gustong pakipagkilala sa dalaga.

You don't owe anyone an explanation of who you are. They're not entitled to know everything about you. If they can't understand the way that you are, pack up your things and just leave. Do not fit yourself, lower your thinking or conform to what is acceptable to them because one way or another, you're gonna lose yourself. Remember that the best persons in the world are those that make you feel comfortable in your skin and those that forever fuel your soul.
