hello, blog.

And I finally found time to write.

I swear I had time waaaaaay before this but you know me. I was never good with resolutions. Hence, no, I wasn't able to keep my promise to myself. I wasn't able to write more nor was I able to read more non-academic books the past year and I doubt I'd be able to do so during this time. Still, it is worth a try.

Yes, yes. CSIW has finally passed and I no longer have the excuse of saying, "Oh no. Sorry can't make it with dinner out with you guys tonight. I have a meeting with the CORE." I can't say,"Oops. Sorry! Got to go! Have to rush since I have my deliverables due tonight," since that would already be lying. The event's over and I (deliberately) have  time---- as if there is no 40-page reading that is waiting eh? 

Point is, I have more time to write and go out with friends again! :) (Shoutout to XX who have been clearly guilt-tripping me for missing Claire's debut and the block party. Ha-ha thanks guys but I know you know that what I've been doing is for the Filipino youth.)

And you guys must be proud of me. I went out with a few friends last night to catch a movie! #YaaayProgressForEllasSocialLife. After being down for sometime (let's not go to that; my heart only breaks), it was time to move on, pick up the pieces, start over again, face the future with the chin held high blah blah oh you get the picture. =) But yes, I watched Love, Rosie with Nica, Alreen, Claire, Pia, and Vince last night and dear me, it was a sure way to have my heart broken again.

The story was just perfect and I can't help but go along others when they went, "Awww," when Rosie and Alex saw each other again after being separated for a long time. I don't know why but I always put myself in the shoes of the character when I read books or watch movies. It seemed that I felt what she felt when she let their chance go by. You knew she liked him too but she was just so afraid of losing the friendship. She was not ready to risk it and when she finally had the courage to tell him what she felt, damn Alex had to go rushing marry this girl whom I refuse ti discuss because I never liked any inkling of her personality.

But yes, the movie (and the book which I am currently burying my nose in) was all about taking chances. All the lost opportunities could have been that moment but because they were so caught up with idea that it would never work, they ended up just like that-- lost and will always be referred to as almost. Still, I'm glad of how it ended. (And good heavens, Sam Claflin will be the death of me) It proves that happy endings still happen. Only if you make the right choices in the end.

And yes, I cried. At the movie theater. Like all the other girls I was with. While Vince, the only boy in the company and who was sitting strategically in the center of us 5, was laughing out loud. Yes, he was laughing. The whole time.

I swear I am not watching a romantic comedy with Vince ever again.
