Tomorrow Could Be Different -- This Keeps Me Going, How About You?

There will be a time when you would start to think that "it" is no longer worth it. You know from the bottom of your heart that it is something that you've always wanted. You wanted it so bad that you were once willing to do whatever it takes to get it, to have a taste of it and to finally succeed. Then, something happens and all your hopes start to crumble down. It would seem like no matter what you do or how hard you try, you'll always "get stuck". Sad as it may sound but sure, shit happens.

Learn the Art of Writing (How to Submit Open Letters at TCC)

I am the type of person who always has a pen and a notebook or a journal inside my bag. Aside from the “girly” items, these are the things that I always bring wherever I go. For everytime that I feel a sudden rush of emotions or the lack of it, I write on my journal or blog about it. Writing, whether the traditional way or through the use of technology, is undoubtedly therapeutic. It is one of the best and easy ways to release the burdens that we feel, to take note of the special moments worth remembering and to finally say words we are afraid to let out.

We write for the same reason that we walk, talk, 
climb mountains or swim the oceans - because we can. 
We have some impulse within us that makes us
 want to explain ourselves to other human beings. 
That's why we write 
that's why we dare to love someone - 
because we have the impulse to explain who we are.

Wanting Someone Everyday in Every Way

Reading anything that has nothing to do with law school makes my soul happy. The reason why I enjoy reading so much is because it brings me into a different place -- where I can let my thoughts go wild and my heart feel great things. For tonight, I checked one of my favorite Tumblr blogs and browsed for the latest posts about poetry. One post caught my attention. It was perfectly written so I want to share it here. To make this article better, allow me first to show you a famous painting by a French surrealist Rene Magritte.

"Just Give Me A Happy Middle and A Very Happy Start"

I think this is just the saddest part of F.R.I.E.N.D.S. (so far) -- where Rachel hugs Ross before his wedding. It was only recently that I got too engrossed with this 90's TV series to the point that I couldn't go to sleep without watching one or two episodes. You know that I easily get attached to the characters of the TV show or movie that I enjoy. Verily, it can be said that I'm absolutely in love with Rachel and Ross. There is something about their love story that makes my emotions fluctuate and it really breaks my heart to know that they're parting ways.

Friends Need Time and Space Too

I woke up at the right side of my bed today. I had a really good sleep, which only means that I had a wonderful Tuesday night. What made last night exciting and full of fun was my reconciliation with a close friend in law school. We haven’t talked for like six weeks despite the fact that we see each other almost everyday, sit beside each other in class and hang out with the same group of friends (both LA and Nachura). I can’t even believe I had the courage and too much “pride” to ignore him for the past weeks. Trust me, it was difficult but my useless pride helped get through it.

Our reconciliation was totally unexpected. We never said anything to each other, we just smiled. Right there and then, we both knew we’re back to being friends. The first thing I said to him was “I miss you!” and all he said was “I wish I could say the same.” It may sound mean but I know he’s just kidding since he always does that whenever I try to show him some affection. My friend K is not really comfortable with my smitten personality. He finds it annoying and fake! (Hahaha)
