The future freaks me out. In one of my old sketchbook-diaries, I once doodled a ghost against a storm of black scribbles. I named it “past,” and right beside it are the words “Sometimes it haunts me in my sleep.” One tossed grad cap and several steps into the proverbial Real World later, a new kind of ghost started to haunt every nook of my head. It was scarier, bigger. It named itself “the future.”

YM CHAT <Like Trowa & Quatre>
  • Airiz (cinderellaincombatboots):Gads, that's amazing
  • Me:LOL rly? You should listen to me live, I sound like a noob
  • Airiz:I'm serious! It's beautiful. Like, I can hear your soul in your music.
  • Airiz:CHEESE! Haha. But I'm serious. That's one nasty harmonica. Better than those mamang musikero's who go house to house during fiesta here. Know them? Leron-leron Sinta's always the song haha.
  • Me:You're flattering me.
  • Me:You're the first person who told me that. My cousin told me I sound terrible. She's good at playing the flute.
  • Airiz:No. Bet your cousin doesn't have much of an ear. And everyone is good at playing the flute at third grade. :p You're awesome.
  • Me:At third grade? Did you study at a music school?
  • Airiz:I thought you're from BOES? Everybody's required to learn to play the recorder when you enter Dr. Mactal's class.
  • Me:Yeah I'm from there, but I studied under Mr.Luyon. :( We just fucking SANG all the time.
  • Me:But thank you anyway! You're my musical heteroheroine! <3
  • Me:Oh wait
  • Me:You're gay
  • Airiz:Hahahahaha. ewan ko sayo! XD
  • Me:You should play Pietro and I'll play my harmonica.
  • Airiz:haha
  • Me:And we can be Trowa and Quatre together
  • Airiz:ahahahhaha!
  • Me:Les yay version
  • Airiz:OMG
  • Me:fuck, you even sound like Quatre. 'I CAN HEAR UR SOUL IN UR MUSIC' bwahaha
  • Airiz:I hate you haha
  • Me:Come on let our souls talk to each other hmmmm

Airiz, I just read this! Oh, my! I want you to know that ever since I found your Book Tumblr and, eventually, your other online havens, you make my day every time I read your posts. I’m a fan of your writing and your doodles. Your reviews made me start reading Murakami and I am forever grateful for that. (BTW, I started reading Gaiman, but I’m afraid my first book of him was not the right choice. I guess I should have asked you first, eh? :D) Thank you so much!

Oh, yeah. The shirts! I love them! If I could wear them every day I would, seriously! I seldom visit Manila, but when I do, in the future, and if we ever encounter each other, I hope I’m wearing one of the shirts. Again, thank you!

Got your reply! I watched the back when I was in elementary school. They have it dubbed in my country and I was glad for that, since we don't have cable TV back then to watch it on Animax Asia or somewhere else. Everyone in my class was crazy about it, both boys and girls! And re Fujima IKR?! I cried when Shoyo lost to Shohoku. I mean I was happy for Shohoku and all, but when the Shoyo guys cried--RIGHT IN THE FEELS! XD Who's your favorite? :)

Aaah me too! They’d dubbed it in Malay (which was pretty hilarious) back then. Ikr?? i remember back then everyone back then wanted to play basketball and put the characters’ names in their MSN messengers (omg that was so long ago hahahahaha) I was pretty emotional when watching that match too uuu Fujima-sannnnn ;;; ahh i have a bunch of favourites! Hanagata and Fujima for one. And Jin. And Sendoh. And pretty much all of the Shohoku’s members! uuu it’s been so long since I’ve talked about Slam Dunk ;;;;
