You say I’m falling down, I know That I can’t stop you crying if you fall, if you love The same old feeling is back, you know I always see you coming. Do you feel this again?
But I can see you watching me and saying there’s no chance to leave Your eyes are getting fond of love, you feel it in the air Because I will never be lost without you now Remember where you found me, I was cold and daft around me But then I will always be far away from you Tomorrow feels uneasy and I wind up at the start once again
The feeling can’t go on, so I say Nothing really happened, but I know that is wrong I feel restless, empty… Now I know Sometimes there’s no answers, and sometimes we’re wrong
Chicane -Far Away from You
Just a few minutes back, I typed in a spontaneous emo note to this one person who I wanted to send out the bold lines to but somehow the webpage refreshed and I couldn’t retrieve what I wrote earlier. So maybe it was fate telling me that the post was something that shouldn’t be published at all.
Anyway, yeah if you feel that this is for you then well this is for you.
Don’t put my hopes up, its scary to fly and fall and go through desperation and depression all that the same time, especially when I’m left all alone to handle it.
“Of all the lies we’re fed on which we gorge in our comfort-addicted world, none is more insidious than the lie of romance. The seductive but infantile notion that somewhere there exists someone to complement us in every way, someone who will make us complete. Of course, this illusion keeps us from ever being complete in and of ourselves and eventually encourages us to despise our shortcomings, our flaws; everything in which our humanity lies. Our humanity, without which, of course.. we are nothing.”—
“In the end, if someone’s willing to stay with you, even without words, just staying with you…you can be happy. Even if you lose everything…if you look at all that’s stopped around you, there will surely be someone looking your way. Don’t be sad, Don’t despair. Don’t forget. You are not alone.”—
Full Article of Patricia Evangelista’s This is a condom ad article.
"The condom ban is an interesting argument in the land of free speech and free enterprise, neon signs and presidents with mistresses, KTV bars and HIV. That most advertised products pose greater dangers than a condom does not seem to matter. Let the billboards peddle motorcycles and beer buckets and 24-hour cholesterol delivered to your doorstep. Let the grinning politicians pimp miracles; let Pagcor advertise the glory of gambling. All these are allowed because it is understood that individuals are free to make their own educated choices. Not every man gets drunk and beats up his wife, not every car owner runs pell-mell into school buses. It is abuse that is dangerous, not the cars or alcohol, and is why the government requires seatbelts and limits liquor sales. It’s the same logic with sex, only the seatbelt is called a condom, nobody is forcing anyone to snap it on, and while the Church has every right to call it a ride to hell on a lubricated latex slide, the state is not permitted to do so."
"If individuals choose to abstain, choose to have sex before marriage, choose to be promiscuous, choose not to have children when married, choose natural methods, choose to have threesomes at high noon with a jumbo pack of condoms and hot pink leather, they have that right. It’s called a democracy. Judge them for it, if you will, but the government cannot. A ban on sexual intercourse has yet to be included in the Constitution."
This isn’t just about condom ads or that the existence of over-the-counter contraceptives like pills and injectables is kept quiet. It is about a government, with the exception of Cabral, that has buckled before the altar of Catholic righteousness in matters of reproductive health care. This is the same Church whose Fr. Melvin Castro told reporter Ricky Carandang that it is all right to vote for a crook for as long as that crook does not support modern family planning.
Keeping an entire generation in the dark because of their “delicate conscience” is insane preparation for a universe where they will walk into multiple beliefs that collide at a street corner as Angelica Panganiban shows off her Bench panties in a four-story billboard. You want people to abstain; you offer a foundation that demands it and convictions that stand up to it. You don’t ask it from a government responsible for the protection of the varying convictions of 80 million people.
I can not take away the fact that we are born in a society where we have to be morally upright and that the Church serves as God’s voice to tell us what is good and evil. Even at 23, I can still consider myself conservative when dealing about sex (sad to say my first up close and personal encounter of the deed was due to pressure) and until now I would probably cringe on the thought that there is a possibility that I wouldn’t be doing it with the one I will get married with or at least the guy that I truly love (not inlove in the moment). But not everyone thinks the way I do. True, not everyone can make an educated decision when one is being pressured by her/his friends or lover to do it, not all gets that one chance to have the courage to say no; not everyone gets to be brought up in a conducive environment and with sex or sex education considered as taboo by most people, not everyone can get an easy and reliable access about true nature and danger of sex. I am for the RH Bill, this is merely because I am thinking of what is lesser evil than just completely putting into the dark the methods that can actually help save someone’s life and of their families having to go through the consequences of unprotected sex. We can not always choose nor decide for other people, but we can provide them options to protect themselves from creating much more damage and I hope this is one side that the church would consider before they proclaim that this alternative promotes an immoral lifestyle.
There is no reason for me to delay doing the detox, it’s about time that I let my body rest from all the toxins (alcohol, oily and junk foods). It’s more than just losing weight, this time, i want to really take care of my body - not just for outward appearance but making me feel good on the inside.
Since last week, I’ve been slowly taking off red meat from my meals munching on more veggies and fish. Quoting a vegan model, “I can’t bear the fact that a living thing has to die for my satisfaction”, and I agree. I have no plans of being a full pledge vegan soon but I do have plans to lessen the intake of red meat (and there will always be magic meat, tastes like the real thing!)
I’ve gained maybe 3x of what I lost when I started to diet and exercise - that just sucks. Now, I have to work thrice as hard phbt. thats okey, at least now I’m learning my lesson that the consequences of sliding back is harder than the beginning.
So wish me luck. I’m hitting the groceries later, so I can start tomorrow.
“Nothing frustrates me more than someone who reads something of mine or anyone else’s and says angrily, “I don’t buy it.” Why are they angry? Good writing does not succeed or fail on the strength of its ability to persuade. It succeeds and fails on the strength of its ability to engage you, to make you think, to give you a glimpse into someone else’s head—even if in the end you conclude that someone else’s head is not a place you’d really like to be.”—Malcolm Gladwell

GOOOODDDDD MORNING TUMBLR!
New season of Gossip girl is coming up, yey! and so as 90210! Yipee. and then DEXTER and GLEE!!! woot woot.
Ok, together with the music and the lyrics is a short love-emoish entry but I had to hit the backspace button cause I just can’t start my day melancholic and depressed about a guy that obviously doesn’t miss me (cause if he did, he could have called or sms-ed me or could have somehow made a move to see me), so FML and F*** him too for missing out on someone like me! ROFL. confidence level 10!
Wow, I can almost taste summer. YEAH! Quite excited for a lot of things - the holy week and krispy kremes. It’s just so sad that in two days, mona is leaving for the US and has no exact return date yet. (the last time we talked about it, she said probably after 2 years).
I’ve been eating less and started seriously exercising - goddamn, how the hell did I do it before?
Annyyywaayyyy… I’m cutting down with my rice and researching about vegetarianism. Cutting down on red meat is fine with me but I just simply cannot take away or resist poultry! Good thing there is what they call Pollotarianism, its semi vegetarian diet that includes poultry! Woot woot!
I’ve also started my vision board, it looks like a scarp book thou. I look at it every time I wake up and before I go to sleep, just so my mind would have a constant picture of what I want to happen or have in my life. Whenever I feel hungry or have the urge to eat, I work on my vision board just to keep my mind distracted.
This week, my goal is to buy those cute studded flats at SM and to watch Alice in Wonderland in 3D with friends.
“When you get to know someone, all their physical characteristics start to disappear. You begin to dwell in their energy, recognize the scent of their skin. You see only the essence of the person, not the shell. That’s why you can’t fall in love with beauty or looks. You can lust after it, be infatuated by it, want to own it. You can love it with your eyes and your body, but not your heart. That’s why when you really connect with a person, any physical imperfections disappear, become irrelevant.”—
“As far as I’m concerned, Shaw was a punk, ‘cause you know what? Tragedies happen. What are you gonna do? Give up? Quit? No. I realize now that when your heart breaks, you gotta fight like hell to make sure you’re still alive. Because you are… and that pain you feel, it’s life. The confusion and fear, that’s there to remind you that somewhere out there is something better… and that something is worth fighting for.”—Nathan Scott (One Tree Hill)
