Day 2: Two boy-friends that mean a lot to me and why.
Derek Hui: I know most people would try to think of guys other than their boyfriend, but honestly,
Babe Derek is my bestest friend in the world. The job of a boyfriend, a truly real boyfriend, goes beyond the romance and beyond the drama. Derek is my best friend and I know I can trust him with everything. I talk to him about my problems. Problems with school, my family, and myself. We talk about music, band, school, everything. He shows me cool jailbroken stuff on my iPhone. We play video games together. We do yoga together. He’s my companion, lover and most importantly of all my best friend.
Jerome Zapanta: Yes, my brother. Although I wouldn’t really consider him a “friend”, he is pretty important to me. I grew up with him. When he was little, I protected him from bullies. When he got older and developed an attitude, we became enemies. When he was promoted to middle school, we became strangers. But now he’s growing up, and now we work together. He understands now. We work together to try to make life easier for our parents. He understands to try to take school seriously, but slowly. We go shopping together. We ask each other about clothes. We talk about hair. He respects my dorky “swag” as he says it and I respect his nerdy yugiohness. With him it’s more about the mutual respect.
