One year of Désolé Boy

On this day, Désolé Boy turns one year old.

There was nothing special that day. I put up this blog and incarnated the person that is Désolé Boy because I was too desolate that time. I had my first full blown sex. I was in love. I was broken.

“Yes. I fell in love with the same guy. I fell in love with a stranger. I fell in love with a one night stand.”
I am your Désolé Boy, May 22, 2010

I would write entries thinking no one is actually reading them. I would write for no particular objective. I would write then for my own pleasure.

Days and months passed, I learned the alleys along the world that is blogging.

On Sequence 1, you were introduced to Désolé Boy. The new guy emerged, the world knows little of him. Sequence 2, Désolé Boy fell in love with a blogger and you witnessed him become more désolé than he already is. The letters bore witness to his pain and struggles, and so are the readers. Sequence 3, you saw him emerged from the hell hole of his unrequited love. The longing for that special someone still swelled though his heart already healed; it was well. Désolé Boy, finally, moved on.

“I survived the war but I did not win the battle
The guns no longer in anger, the canons now tamed.
The air is silent, the deceased scattered.
Look! A mighty soul in standing.
He is not alone.

There were few attempts to have this blog murdered which would mean the death of Désolé Boy. Now, after a year of blogging and sharing my stories, I am thankful I never did.

Come 2011, I decided I would be less emo. I was, after all, called one, a drama queen, drama personae and many other names pertaining to my drama antics. I hide behind my metaphors and tweaked some of my sentences to make it "happier." But the Black Swan would always reveal its real feathers, and so I continue to be the Désolé Boy that I always am.

“I’m sorry that I can’t write fairytales like most of you do. I apologize that you discovered I’m not a prince charming; for disgusting you after seeing that I’m just a pauper with only his tin cans to boast.”

One hundred and thirty one entries. One hundred and fifty three followers. One year of blogging. 

What can I say but THANK YOU for allowing Désolé Boy a space on your laptops and computers [or your mobile gadgets, so to speak.]

I sincerely hope that in one way or another I was able to move you through my writings because that's where a writer's true worth lies; where Désolé Boy's true worth lies.

Here’s to another year of blogging. Cheers!

Happy Birthday, Désolé Boy.

This post is definitely cool, you were quoting DB's history all along.

Idol na kita simula nung malaman ko. Pangarap ko kasi maging gaya mo, at kahit na mas maappeal ang boys este math kaya ko pinili tong course ko, mahal ko pa rin ang linya na yan..

I believe in the profession of journalism.

i like this thought:

I would write entries thinking no one is actually reading them. I would write for no particular objective. I would write then for my own pleasure.
