This year, I became a 5-year-old M!LKys last June. I can't believe it has already been five years. What a milestone! Within those five years of supporting M!LK, I have experienced so much "kilig" and heartbreaking moments. I laughed, cried tears of joy and sadness, went through the struggle of saving money to buy CDs, a photobook, and albums and so much more.
Of course, I have also met a lot of friends from all over the world, thanks to the boys. I've met friends from within the Philippines, Thailand, Japan, Indonesia, America, and Germany. They were with me during those happy moments of my fangirling life. I'm so happy I had them to express what excitement I have within me. A lot of them seem to leave the fandom (sad to say), but I'm so glad they've become part of my life as a M!LKys. I am also SO grateful that some of them became my friends outside of the fangirling world. I still have connections to some of them, while I lost connections to others for some reason. It breaks my heart but I can't do anything about it :(
M!LK has been my inspiration for everything I do, especially in school. I've managed to finish every year in school with honors.. awards, medals, certificates... they're one of the factors why I've been doing my best. I thank them for that as well.
During my first fangirl anniversary, I met this Thai girl. She commented in this blog and we managed to get connected on Twitter. There, she tweeted me a drawing she made for me:
And yes, I'm still determined to meet them one day. Everyone who formed the group, including the ones who left. I'm also determined to attend their events, perhaps have a handshake with them, take pictures with them/of them, talk to them, have their signatures, buy their merch and CDs from stores in Japan... everything I have missed doing in those past years.
