S: Memories 2010/2011
2: How it all began.. | This girl liked this boy, she heard nice things about him, and she thought he was really cute. She gathered the courage on November 20, 2008 to start a conversation with him. It started off really well, and they slowly grew closer and closer. Each day she would fall for him more and more. She was head over heels for this boy, he was always on her mind. She would always smile every time she received a text from this boy. This boy was literally her best friend, if they got in an argument, she would give in, because she would rather keep him as a best friend, then lose him over something silly. The feelings she had for him weren't mutual, but the girl was still happy having him as a best friend. Even though they texted each other everyday, and would be there for each other, they were only friends. Nothing more. She accepted it, she prefer having him as a friend, instead of confronting him about her feelings being afraid that their friendship would never be the same if she got rejected. From then on, they would hang every friday, and text everyday. It didn't feel right if they didn't hang out on fridays, or if they didn't text each other frequently. This boy has made a big impact on her life. Things wouldn't feel the same if they weren't friends. That is why the girl decided to just accept the fact that he will never have the same feelings for her as she does for him. This girl was a year ahead of him, so when it was time for her to graduate, she felt really sad knowing that she wouldn't be able to see him at school everyday. She would be attending a university, while he was in high school. The good thing was that the distance only made them closer. They would talk to each other on the phone, and online daily. Every chance that they got to hang out, they would. She liked him for almost 2 years, but he never realized. Summer 2010, was when he realized that the girl was the one for him, even though it took him a long time to realize. On November 11, 2010, the boy finally gathered the courage to ask her to be his girlfriend. This is the beginning of a new chapter for the two, love birds.
3: What Is Love?
4: Dear Boyfriend, On November, 11/2010 was the beginning of our lives. You have become a great part of my life. You're practically my other half. We've gone through a lot of ups and downs, but I'm glad that its with you because it made me grow as a person, as well as help us build a stronger relationship. We shared so many great memories, that should be kept and treasured forever. This is the reason why I decided to make you a scrapbook. I wish I could see you everyday. I wish I could hug you tightly whenever you need me. I don't think I've ever missed anyone as much as I miss you. I've never liked anyone this much. You're probably the first boy who's ever made me feel this way. I refuse to ever let you go. My biggest fear is losing you. You’ve became a part of my daily routine. I’m already used to waking up to your texts, and being the last one you say good night to. Everything changed for the better, you make me happier than anyone else has. I know it’s rare to have something good last for a long period of time, and the thought of us possibly becoming strangers already frightens me. I’m scared one day you’ll turn around and forget about all the memories we’ve had, all the laughs we shared, the arguments that drew us closer. I don't know what the future has in store for us. Just please don't give up on me. You're really silly, and thats what I love about you. Plus, you're always there for me whenever I need it, just know that I will always be there for you, no matter what. I hope you're happy with me, because you're stuck to me like glue the moment you walked into my life. No regrets, kay? You're my best friend and lover, and that will never change. So I hope you know what you're getting yourself into! I love you, forever and always. | Love, Vanessa Tran
6: “If I could explain love in one word, it would have to be trust. Trust that he doesn’t cheat on you, trust that he doesn’t lie to you, trust that he really loves you, trust that he will always be there for you, trust that he can go to a party and not get high or drunk, trust that you don’t have to worry about him breaking up with you the second you wake up, trust that he will stick up for you, trust that he will never fall in love with another, trust that he won’t just get sick of you, and trust that he wants you like you want him. Trust is the key in a relationship, treasure it.” He is my weakness, and my strength. I'm seriously scared of losing this boy, so I do get a little overprotective, but who wouldn't be? Especially if they have an amazing boyfriend as him. He completes me.
7: "You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams." - Dr. Seuss I love this boy with all my heart. I love how we can do anything and just laugh it off like we're five year olds. It is always a good time with him. He knows how to make a girl smile. I'm thankful he's mine.

13: Special Occasions We've spent Valentines, Halloween and Christmas together. I've cherished every moment of it, We didn't really take any pictures of the times we spent together when it was just us. Last Halloween in 2010, forced us to grow closer. Remember when we went to Screamfest, then I was holding onto you really tight because I was so scared. This Halloween was when we decided to take pictures for what we did! From now on, when we spend time with each other on holidays, I'll try to take as many pictures as I can so we can remember it forever. Remember when you walked all the way to Monterey Park on a chilly Halloween, I was literally surprised, and I appreciated that you walked so far just for me. I fell harder for you. Remember on Christmas Day we had trouble deciding where to go, because everywhere was closed. In the end, all that mattered that we got to spend quality time together. We decided to have Denny's for breakfast, then enjoyed a Christmas movie, just the two of us. I can't wait to spend Christmas 2011 with you, and I'm looking forward to all the upcoming holidays. I love how we can just do anything, and have a great time while at it. I can't believe we've dated for a year now, feels like forever since we've been together. I can't wait to spend more time with you in the future, and create our own memories. I can't wait to travel around the world with you. I think that is what I'm looking forward to the most. I can't wait to spend the rest of my life with you. I love you.
14: PLACES TO VISIT
15: THINGS TO DO
17: What if? What if I didn’t meet you? What if you never walked in my life? What if I never said hi? What if you never said hi? I wonder I just wonder what life would be right now. Would it be amazing? Fun? More lively? But everyone I meet is someone special to me because each one has a different personality and is different in their very own way. I realized life would be very different and wouldn’t be as amazing as it is now without meeting you. Even though you're younger than me, I look up to you, not literally. What I meant was that, you're a strong person, and I really admire that. I love how you don't let things tear you down so quick, you keep trying no matter how hard the situation is. As you can tell, I'm a pretty weak person, I cry, and break down easily. I can't imagine what life would be like if you left me. Probably unbearable. You became a part of me, so if you ever left me, I wouldn't know how to handle it. So I just wanted to say, I love you. You're my lover, other half, and my best friend. You're an amazing person. You're strong-willed, determined, and considerate. I'm lucky to have you in my life, I wouldn't know what I would do without you. You have made a huge impact in my life, believe it or not. You're very caring, giving, and a great person to be around. Never give up because you have a lot of friends that love you for who you are and will always be there for you when you need them. I'll always be here for you no matter what. You're my number one priority, and it would be foolish if I ever let someone as special as you go. You mean the world to me, don't change. I'll love you no matter what. | Gordon Yau
