Words of Samwise The Brave

Frodo: I can’t do this, Sam.

Sam: I know. It’s all wrong. By rights we shouldn’t even be here. But we are. It’s like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger, they were. And sometimes you didn’t want to know the end. Because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it’s only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you. That meant something, even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn’t. They kept going. Because they were holding on to something.

Frodo: What are we holding onto, Sam?

Sam: That there’s some good in this world, Mr. Frodo… and it’s worth fighting for.

Sometimes when people grow, they grow apart.

500 days of Summer got that right.

Is it just me or are we really growing apart? Ugh. I feel like some of my super close friends are drifting away. Mas lagi na nilang kasama ‘yung new friends nila. Don’t get me wrong, I am not against making new friends. In fact, I love making new friends. Pero I don’t forget my old friends even though I’ve made new ones. I feel that they’re closer now to other people than with me. That sucks big time.

Napag-usapan nga namin ‘to ng girl best friend ko. (Yes, I do have a guy best friend.) Parang nagbago na kasi ‘yung iba naming friends. :( Apektado talaga ‘ko e. Mas close ko kasi ‘tong mga ‘to. Kung meron akong all-boys barkada, sila yun. Seven guys sila: ‘yung guy best friend ko, friend-turned-boyfriend-turned-ex-but-I-still-consider-him-my-friend, friend ko ever since I can remember/old neighbor, and four close friends. Silang pito classmates ko elementary hanggang high school. Sila ‘yung guy friends ko na wala talagang malisya kung lagi ko man katabi sa classroom dati, kasama maglakwatsa.

Nung nagcollege na, syempre di na tulad ng dati na araw-araw magkakasama. Silang pito, madalas pa nagkakasama kasi magkakalapit lang sila ng schools. Pero kahit ganun, okay naman kami. Same old. Same old. Sabi nga ng APO at Sponge Cola, “pag magkakasama’y nagwawala.”. I love them so much lalo na kasi kahit minsan-minsan na lang kami nagkakasama-sama, ayos pa rin samahan namin. Mararamdaman mo naman ‘yun e. Kahit nung nagbreak kami ni A, may ilangan sa’min dalawa syempre, pero barkada pa rin kaming lahat.

Eto na, may girlfriend na kasi ‘tong si ex. Friend na rin nila. Lagi na nga nilang kasama eh. Wala naman yun sa’kin. Eh di na rin ako nakakasama masyado sa kanila kasi madalas gabi na. Eh di naman ako papayagan. One time nameet ko si gf. Ayos naman. Di ko lang feel. Actually, di pa sila hindi ko na talaga feel yang si girlaloo. Dunno why. Ayoko lang sa kanya. Ayoko sa kanilang tatlong magkakaibigan. HAHAH! (Meron siyang dalawang friends na girl.)  Kahit si guy best friend ko nga ayaw din sa kanya e.

Pero these past few months, parang nagbabago na talaga sila. Apat nga sa kanilang pito hindi ako binati nung birthday ko e! What the hell. Eh silang apat yung pinakaclose ko sa pito. Kung may top 4 guy friends ko, sila yun. Sila yung alam ko kahit anong mangyari, di makakalimutan yung birthday ko. EH ANONG NANGYARI!? WALA! KUNG DI KO PA NAKITA ACCIDENTALLY HINDI NILA KO IGIGREET? BELATED PA! NAKAKAINIS TALAGA YUN! Kinuwento ko ‘to sa girl best friend ko. Pero ewan ko kung naconvey ko ng maayos yung feelings ko about dun. Nakakainis talaga! Nasaktan talaga ‘ko nun. :((((( AKO KAYA YUNG PINAKACLOSE NILANG BABAE DATI :(((

May nagsabi sa’kin, chill lang daw ako. Ganun daw talaga. Ewan ko kung naintindihan niya nararamdaman ko. Hindi naman sila kasi close katulad ng sa’min. basta yun na yun. Haaay buhay.

Naisip ko rin na baka may kasalanan din ako. Pag nagyayaya kasi sila dati, madalas hindi ako nakakasama. Kung sasama man, hindi ako nakakapagstay ng sobrang tagal. Madalas kasing 7:30am pasok. Hello, more than an hour kaya byahe from here to Manila. Pero siguro nga, kulang din ako sa effort.

A very difficult question I never thought I’d ever ask. Masyado akong confident sa mga kaibigan ko e. Lalo na sa high school friends ko. Sa tagal ba naman namin magkakasama e. Part sila ng comfort zone ko.

Mag-eeffort na talaga ko. Kailangan matuloy ‘tong December getaway namin. Hindi pwedeng masayang friendship namin. Ako na didiskarte. :)

He’s Just Not That Into You

Girls are taught a lot of stuff growing up. (1) If a guy punches you, he likes you, (2) never try to trim your own bangs, and (3) someday you will meet a wonderful guy and get your very own happy ending. Every movie we see, every story we’re told implores us to wait for it, the third act twist, the unexpected declaration of love, the exception to the rule. But sometimes we’re so focused on finding our happy ending we don’t learn how to read the signs: how to tell from the ones who want us and the ones who don’t the ones who will stay and the ones who will leave.
And maybe a happy ending doesn’t include a guy, maybe it’s you, on your own, picking up the pieces and starting over, freeing yourself up for something better in the future. Maybe the happy ending is just moving on. Or maybe the happy ending is this, knowing after all the unreturned phone calls, broken hearts, through the blunders and misread signals, through all the pain and embarrassment, you never gave up hope.

– He’s Just Not That Into You

I love this quote. Lumalabas tuloy romantic side ko. Haha! I blame movies and novels for my high expectations in love. At dahil nag-eexpect masyado, nadidisappoint tuloy. I may not have my fairy tale love story right now, but someday, I know, my prince charming, no. Scratch that. Someday, I know the right man will come along, and then we’re going to have the greatest love story. ♥
