Going Home

Your life is a very long weekend.
Live it. Love it.
Bask in the heat of the sun.
Smell the sweet scent of the trees that the cool wind carries.
Pick that ripe fruit and taste its bittersweetness.
Play in the sand.
Run like a kid on the fresh blades of grass.
But when your skin starts to ache
Or your feet get blisters
When your hair dries up
Or when you start to feel your empty stomach
When you get tired
Pack your bags
Go home
I'll be waiting.

Sunset Boulevard

Despite how jaded and materialistic the world has turned out, it is such a relief to discover that there are still people who find walking by the breakwater during sunset sweet. Simple things still matter after all.

Mariah Carey's My All, JerryBoi Style

This is just so tempting not to share. ;-) This was first posted by Cha02xx, an online buddy of mine over at Multiply. Watch that teenage boy turn into a diva.

All Friendship and No Broken Hearts

He'd kill me if he sees this. hahaha.

I met Jeff one morning on my way to work. I was having breakfast at one of the fastfoods in Ayala and there he was on the other table exchanging glances with me. He is cute. Being the malandi that I was, I finished off my pancakes and transferred to his table for some small talk. Well, come to think of it, we barely talked. I just sat there and we stared at each other. Nobody wanted to talk. I had to go in a few minutes so I grabbed a pen from my bag and wrote my number on the receipt. I slipped it on his hand, winked and smiled at him, and left. I received a text from him after a few minutes. He was apologizing for being torpe, and that he was glad that I was brave enough to get up to him and leave my number. We texted each other the entire day. He said he was glad we met.

But then you just know when it’s not worth it. He doesn’t answer most of my questions. No matter how I want to talk to him about many other things, he manages to steer the talk towards a neutral topic. When I text him about serious stuff, ask him about work, family, and friends, or when we talk about what we were all about, he doesn’t text back.

Last weekend we were able to spend some time with each other. We went out and just talked the whole time. All of my questions were answered. Is it really not worth it? Let me put it this way. Jeff is not relationship material. At least not for me. He knows what he wants and he had no qualms of letting me know about it, something that I appreciate better than him taking me for a ride. We've leveled our expectations and now everything is in its place. At the end of the day, there was all friendship and no broken hearts.

I've created a playlist about Jeff and I which I want to share with you guys. The centerpiece of this playlist if this song by Joe featuring N'sync:

"I Believe In You"

I never believed in dreaming, it never got me very far.
I never believed that love could find me, like an arrow through the heart.
I never believed in miracles, or building castles in the air.
Not until that day I found you, turned around and you were there.
From the day you came, you gave me, a whole new point of view.
I've been touched by an angel, it's impossible, but true.

I believe in you.
I swear that forever from today, no one will ever take your place.
I believe in you.
And I believe our love will last always.

I never believed in fairy tales, tho sometimes I wish I could,
I never believed that golden slippers could ever find the perfect foot.
I never believed in magic, or that wishes could come true,
But your very first kiss changed all this, something only you could do.
You made me a believer, you made me trust again,
You showed there's a pot of gold, at every rainbow's end.

I believe in you.
I swear that forever from today, no one will ever take your place.
I believe in you.
And I believe our love will last always.

Only love, sets you free,
And if you serve to fate, then you're my destiny.
Now I know, now I see.
Anything can happen, if you just believe.

I believe in you.
I swear that forever from today, no one will ever take your place.
I believe in you.
And I believe our love will last always.

The other songs in the playlist are the following:

Last Chance by Allure
Kung Ako na Lang Sana by Bituin Escalante
Ikaw and Lahat sa Akin by Pipo Lina
