The Definition of Success
In life, success is that one thing that effortlessly pushes people to work hard, this is true no matter how much you deny it. There’s nothing wrong with it, as long as you’re not stepping on anyone and as long as you’re achieving it the right way. You do everything possible to work your way up there. What are the perks of being successful anyway? Let’s see. You can have...
Things I Wonder
I wonder why two people of different sex, who call each other bestfriends, have a 99% chance of falling for each other and be the last two people to realize it. I wonder if they really didn’t know about that possibility perhaps because of the crazy things they’ve been experiencing in life or maybe they just didn’t want to confront the idea because they’re so afraid to make a mistake and lose their...
The Act of Letting Go
Earlier, I was with my friends and we were talking about relationships. I won’t elaborate things to keep the privacy of my friend but the point that she was to trying make was that it’s hard to stop everything right now for her because she’s afraid to lose it permanently. After that we had ice cream for dessert, and it’s funny because my friends took a very long time in choosing the...
Love and Hate
People always say that there’s a thin line between love and hate. But really, how thin can it be? I’ve always believed that everything is characterized by opposites, thanks to one of the philosophers I like, Heraclitus. Cold won’t exist had there been no hot, nor would fat had there been no thin. This is also the reason why I don’t believe in World Peace. Not that I love...
One Great Love
One Great Love. Three words that have gone through so much experiences. The three words that have done so much sacrifice just to prove that the third word was the greatest of them all. It is the three words anyone can say, anyone can talk about, anyone can write about. But it is also the three words not anyone can feel and have. And so maybe this is why I want to write about it. Because it is...
Unedited: Real Score
This is going to be my shortest entry in this blog but I guess it’s the one I mean the most. I thought you were my friend but with your words I found the easiest way to say goodbye to our friendship. I never doubted, not even for a second, your sincerity when we talk to each other. We may not talk about serious stuff but I assure you that I was serious with my words and I actually thought...
Unedited: Truth Be Told
Do you honestly want to know why people treat you that way? Why you feel a little less than you should be? Or why things aren’t going the way you planned them? It’s BECAUSE OF YOU AND YOU ALONE. You can’t blame everyone for how they’re treating you. Think about it, if everybody’s not treating you seriously and you’ve been ranting about being unappreciated by...
Unedited: Words From A Girl In Love
Do you want to know why I like you? It is because you never made me feel that I have to be somebody else in front of you. I don’t have to be something extraordinary for me to make you feel happy. That by being just the NORMAL me, the me that no one has ever seen, is enough to bring joy to someone like you. I don’t need jokes or punch lines, I don’t have to talk a lot, I don’t have to exert so...
FIRST MOVE.The two words and one action that can make or break one’s heart. It takes a lot of courage for one to do this but it doesn’t necessarily mean that one is sincere. Normally the guys do the first move, although some of the girls of today are not as patient as those like before and they confidently approach the guys and tell them straight to their faces that they like them. It...
Pushing The Hurt Away
Lying is perhaps the number one choice of those who got their hearts badly broken. We say we’re okay when everything is truly going crazy around us. We say we’re happy when honestly, we are silently crying. We say I’m completely over him when the truth is, we check about them every now and then to see if they’re enjoying their lives. And we say We’re just friends when...
PLAYING WITH FIRE
“I think you’re playing with fire.” When I hear this line, I remember the scene in Sex and The City 2 where Charlotte (Kristin Davis) warned Carrie (Sarah Jessica Park) about meeting up with his ex, Aidan (John Corbett). I’ve been saying this line for like more than 100 times already to people who are in the same shoes as Carrie. It’s actually difficult to be in this...
Everyday we are confronted with tons of problems, pressures, rejections, and frustrations. Sometimes we can’t help but shatter into pieces when everything seems to fall apart. We can’t seem to find any more solutions to our problems. We want to simply disappear and bid goodbye to our hellish lives here on earth. We beg for serenity. We beg for ultimate justice. WE BEG FOR...
A PAINFUL SCENARIO
While reading someone’s thoughts here in tumblr, I recalled something that happened to me yesterday. I was on my way to buy a book, math book to be specific, and the design on a shirt of a person sitting on a bench caught my attention. It looked so familiar so I looked at the bench to see who were there. And there were 2 guys, one with the shirt that I recognized from afar, and the...
CYCLE OF REGRET
Sometimes I wish I could just stop the world and savor that special moment, that specific instance where I felt the magic, the unconditional love, and the power that could transcend time. For what reason, I am still not certain. Perhaps no one knows if that could happen again, if that same person I am with could make me feel that way for the second time, or if that same me could still be like...
LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT
I don’t know why but I really have a strong faith in love at first sight. It’s probably not as strong as to love built by years of friendship at first, but still it could go somewhere not all can reach. The curiosity, the burning affection, the fresh mindset, the deep understanding, and the precious love you’ve never found in someone else, I believe they can make the most romantic love story....
If only he knows how happy I am whenever I receive a message from him, whenever I hear his name from other people, whenever I find out that he has a new achievement in life, whenever I get to learn that he is slowly reaching all his dreams, and when one by one, he gets to accomplish the plans we shared together when we were still kids. If only he knows how much joy it gives me when people...
The Day I Will Meet the Right Guy
i’ll meet the right guy for me during the saddest and loneliest moment in my life. this i am sure of because i know that i am the truest person as of that moment. i have no guts to laugh and make other people laugh. i have no other choice but to cry in front of him. i can’t sing lady marmalade anymore just to lift my hopes up. i can’t dance to the beat of dancing queen just...
A Note on Friendship
According to the New Oxford American Dictionary (Apple Dictionary), a friend is a person whom one knows and with whom one has a bond of mutual affection, typically exclusive of sexual or family relations; a person who is not an enemy or who is on the same side. But in reality, there is so much more to say about its meaning. It is like “love” and “art”, there is no...
You’ve probably experienced waiting for a friend for minutes or hours and seriously, it’s irritating. It is like you wanna tell them, “Who are you to make me wait this long?” and after they arrive all they will say is, “Sorry.” And since you’re friends after a minute or so, you will end up laughing with each other, it is as if nothing happened. This...
Moving on is not as easy it seems. Saying those two words is way far from actually doing it. If all you do is announce to the whole world that you are moving on, and you are not doing anything about it, then you better shut up. ‘Cause this world you’re living in is not meant for words alone, you have to do something. you have to WORK ON IT. Sometimes, we tend to think that trying...
i have come to realize that one will only be open to the world of maturity if he surmounts his greatest fear. it will surely be difficult to find the guts to do it, but in the end, it will all be worth it. actually in my case, finding the guts wasn’t a problem. probably because what i was about to do was really the right thing. it won’t cause me any harm at all. i didn’t...
