Today I am deeply honored to finally welcome my friend, Wella Añonuevo as a guest blogger for this particular post on Sketchy Stories. She’s a Computer Science graduate and currently working as an SEO Specialist like me. She maintains a blog called “The Book Rambler” which focuses on her thoughts about books including reviews, covers, news, dream casts, etc.
Read her contribution that describes this latest illustration of mine below. A story of finding the perfect partner withstanding all the differences and crossing all boundaries.
CROSSING BOUNDARIES (ink and colored pencil on paper)
I always believe that finding the right person is never that hard. I know everyone will disagree but yes it is not that difficult to have someone who will love you and whom you will give your love to. It’s just a matter of waiting for the right one to come. Oh, I know it’s such a cliché! But trust me it’s the reality. Sometimes the person you least expect to be your partner will be the most perfect thing that ever happened to you.
I’ve proven all of those when I found him. I can still clearly remember that first day of school in college. He was quiet and smart and he’s a geek while I’m outgoing, always with my girlfriends and famous? Not really. I’m just the type where I join a lot of events in school whereas, he never did. So we’re totally the opposite in other words. Yes, it might be the usual love story that you see in movies or read in novels but that’s not all.
During our second year, we became officially together and I was the happiest girl and I could see that he was also happy with me. We made plans and dream of our future together. But suddenly, a thought came up to me like a lightning that struck my mind. How are we going to handle our differences in the future? We have different belief and religion. We jokingly talked about it but nobody wants to give up his/her belief. We argued about it and laugh at the end of the day. We try to convince each other of who should shift but it’ll just be forgotten after some time. It’s like loving an angel when you are a demon or vice versa. And you ask yourself, where will you live, in heaven or in hell?
So that brings me back to finding the right one is easy but making your relationship work is entirely a different thing. But if you really love each other, there’s no angel and demon. And why choose between heaven and hell if there’s an earth where you can shut them both up? All I’m trying to say is, no matter where destiny puts us, as long as love finds way, there will always be US. Or as long as there’s US, love finds it’s way. ;)
