Couch&Potatoes: How To Be Single

How To Be Single

“Heart never fails to remember.”

I’d always say.

Thumbs up to all singles there. Whatever “heart stat” you got, it doesn’t make any difference.

Still, there’s..

COMMITMENT.

Taken: Committed to what they have.

Single: Committed to what they have NOW.

There’s..

VULNERABILITY.

Taken: To what could happen.

Single: To what could have happened.

And there’s..

TRUST.

Taken: For each other.

Single: For oneself. Extending it to others.

Another important thing is TIME..

Taken: For each other.

Single: For everyone.

Then there’s..

STRUGGLE.

Taken: There’s no perfect relationship.

Single: You’re not perfect. But it’s okay.

But of course each has these so called..

LOVE. And FATE.

Taken: Share it with pure joy. And making it stronger.

Single. Shower it with grace. AND GETTING STRONGER.

-HALUH. :p

Do you believe in fate?

Do you believe in fate, Neo?

“No.”

Why not?

“Because I don’t like the idea that I’m not in control of my life.”

(The Matrix)

It was brought up by one of our mentors. I guess it was an appetizer to our main course. He had to discuss the went-well and even-better stuff of our whole shift. And I would say, the idea caught my attention there. Hihi πŸ™‚ (Okay, tama na Ge.) and yeah, do you believe in fate?

Fate.

Destiny.

Serendipity.

Three words that popped out in my head when early morning struck the clock. Tug-of-war telling you, there are no such things. But how about the stranger who offered a seat in a bus, in the middle of a traffic jam.. the train you’ve missed and because of that misfortune, you discovered a new route.. Or the family dinner you missed out? Because you had a date that night.. Or what about the song that kept on whispering your ear got dull while lying on bed because your mind wandered off to dream about the most beautiful mess in life..

Yeah. We make our decisions. We make our choices. That’s why we somehow create the path we want to have ahead of us. But what’s beyond that path?

Fate? Naah. We always try to follow that. Destiny? We always try to find it. But serendipity?

I’d say, it reminds us that life is more than what choices we make .. more than the shooting stars we wish for..

It’s like taking a guess, when the only answer is yes.

-Good day! Sleepy and tired :-/ 😐

“It’s like taking a guess, when the only answer is yes..”

-He does different renditions out of one song. It’s just so cool. ❀ ❀ ❀

Superman101: My Unfinished Melody

You are my unfinished melody
I can’t think about the next beat
And I’m trying to sketch your mysterious lips
Hoping to read the words on it

Yes, that beat
That certain heart beat
Superman, it drives me crazy

You make my heart ill
What am I supposed to do?
That’s what I really feel

You are my unfinished melody
What am I supposed to do?
When are we gonna add some letters
To a melody like, I- love-you

A Sunday’s Best

I went to a temple in 50-something street in Makati City. A friend invited me. I know she was special, and I was right. She had this uhm, special award, they call it “Honor B” (if I am not mistaken.) It is like my journey to explore different religious atmosphere. I had a visit in a Christian building in Global City (Victory), another in AFPOVAI, in Fort Bonifacio, Muslim culture, a 30min talk with a Jehova’s witness, a casual thing with a Dating Daan-woman. Some may find it weird but I don’t. But maybe, it’s not just out of curiosity but more of the urge to know them better and not to judge what they believe in. So, this teenage girl friend, she’s my classmate in our English1 class. I find her special because of her story.Β  I cannot spill her story because it’s our secret. πŸ˜‰ Anyways, when I was there at the temple, I’ve met her mom and her sisters. they were so kind and gentle, and warm, and..I was touched. My mama isn’t like that. She’s cold to everyone. She’s always busy thinking of what she should do for the next day. haha anywayzzz. There, I’ve seen the “testimony” thing I had seen once in AFPOVAI. Afterwards, we were brought into a room, like a convention room. It is where they teach every member, like a religion class. And to another room, for Young Women. hahaha *Hindi na dapat ako kasali dun.* As a simple gift, they offered a chocolate cake for my friend. But instead of taking it all to her house, he shared it with us. So nice. She really is. I’m just glad I did go there. For the win, I’ve also met a young Bicolana, That was a wonderful day. πŸ™‚ BTW, the photo (above), was like a song page board. It tells you the page in the Hymn book.
