If only it ain't so damn scary

“I want you to get swept away. I want you to levitate. I want you to sing with rapture and dance like a dervish. Be deliriously happy. Or at least leave yourself open to be. I know it’s a cornball thing but love is passion, obsession, someone you can’t live without. If you don’t start with that, what are you going to end up with? I say fall head over heels. Find someone you can love like crazy and who’ll love you the same way back. And how do you find him? Forget your head and listen to your heart… Run the risk, if you get hurt, you’ll come back. Because, the truth is there is no sense living your life without this. To make the journey and not fall deeply in love--well, you haven’t lived a life at all. You have to try. Because if you haven’t tried, you haven’t lived… Stay open. Who knows? Lightning could strike.”

"Because if you haven’t tried, you haven’t lived… "

- Kahit nakakatakot. Susubukan ko. :)

Ay nasubukan ko na. Ayoko nang ulitin. Tama na ang once is enough. I think the human body/mind can only take one such extreme experience in a lifetime. Eh ako nakatatlo na. Over na ako sa quota.

Someone told me I needed pain, lots and lots of it, to make me a better writer. Awa ng D'yos, nagkatotoo nga. Ouch.

The next time I'm in love, it won't be head over heels or over the cliff anymore. Gusto ko 'being" hindi "falling" in love. Mapili ako sa verbs.

AY SUS. Pelikula lang yan.

At hindi lang basta pelikula, fiction pa. Hindi man lang documentary.

Tapos, dios ko... si Kamatayan pa! Naglalakad sa mundo. Nakikipag-sex--sa babae pa! At ka-fez ni Brad Pitt?!

Seriously now, can we take anything seriously from that film? =)

(Labyu, Migs!) =)
