it is my three-year tumblr anniversary soon… and it’s with a painfully heavy heart that i announce that today, i’m gonna log off indefinitely.

this isn’t an easy decision. tumblr has been a major part of my life for, well, the last three years, since i was in grade nine - that’s a lot of life and a lot of learning in one place. but as many of you may have noticed, i’ve got more serious about my faith in the last few months, and i’ve been thinking, and i think that tumblr is taking up a place in my life that i really should be filling with more important stuff. that sounds so trite, but every time i sit down to think, in real life, more often than not my mind wanders to the low common denominator provided by tumblr and a confused white-noise mess of wanting the kind of popularity and mass approval the internet offers… that’s as well as i can explain it. i’m hoping that i can get rid of it somewhat by going away and focussing my time on more healthy things.

guys, you know the feeling - i want to write properly again, i want to read properly again, i want to regain my attention span… i always intended to leave this place once i was mature enough to go my own way, and i think i’ve reached that point.

please, if you want to keep up with me, i absolutely invite you to ask for my facebook. please do. there’s a little lump in my throat as i write this. i will miss everything i found here: the humour, the pretty things, the genuine inspiration, the good times, the friends, the strong community, even the thoughts and awareness of stuff that it wasn’t really pleasant to learn about but that i needed to see. i will miss having this space to call home.

i love you all to death. take care without me, okay?? please take care. know that i love every single one of you and having you along for the ride made everything that much better. and who knows - i might blog with you again at some point. actually, mary and i are going to launch a christian blog at some point and i’ll let you know how that develops. and ofc i’ll be on again in july to post pictures of her and me hanging out. that kind of stuff. but otherwise, this is goodbye… i’ll miss you.

grace and peace to you, my friends. keep remembering space is out there.

Sorry kase di ko kaya yung adobe, I just used this app on iphone na sinearch ko pa para lang makagawa nito buti meron and free. Huhu loveyou! More edits please :(((((

Reaction Paper

Ate Leng,

Masakit. Sobra.

Yan ang una kong na-feel nung mabasa ko yung AU ng Alphabet Couple kaninang umaga. Siguro mga .548973298 seconds tumigil yung tibok ng puso ko at nagsisigaw yung utak ko ng WHY WHY WHY ng mga 10 billion times. Especially dun sa part ng usapan nina A&Z [ i’m happy for you… </3 #araykobhe].

i stand on what i said na akala ko masakitna yung “The Woman in White” ni Barang (both versions), pero wala pa pala yun sa kalingkingan ng feels dito sa ficlet na “to.  Kasi si Andreau at Zades ‘to diba? A&Z? "Solid” at “Diamond”? Si Francisco at Patty B? Na may theme song na “I Got You Babe?” Sila yun eh, at higit pa. Yung #OTPForevs. Hindi yung ganito.

if it’s a consolation, Au lang naman 'to [ tho for the record, i can’t imagine my reaction kung walang note na au 'to, or God forbid, mapasok 'to sa TSIB timeline (overthinking sucks ugh) ]. rest assured, sabi mo naman ate na happy ending ang TSIB [ pero sa opinion ni ricky lee relative ang pagiging masaya diba? goddamnit overthinking again sorry ] so it’s a lil’ bit of relief na din. pero kahit na, ate. masakit talaga eh.

Lemme rephrase that:

Masakit talaga siya, pero kailangan.

if there’s one thing na hinahangaan ko sa'yo ate leng, you’re really brave. Brave na to the point na hindi ka takot na sirain yung mga ideas, beliefs, conventions, and whatnots ng stories mo, and somehow, build it up again. Lik, oo, binuild up mo sila na ganito or ganyan, pero kung alam mo'ng mas magiging better sila, mas realistuc at mas may hugot , wala ka'ng doubt na i-explore yung possibilities like this: yung mga out of the box, tragic moments  or not and everything in between; pinu-push mo talaga. sure, yun naman talaga ang concept ng au pero goddamnit ate you really unlocked the level 99999999999999 or higher because of this.

i remember na may nagpoint out na rin na reader sa'yo abt this [ if i’m not mistaken yun yung about sa soulmates theory ni A&Z, una hindi ko nagets yun ibig niyang sabihin, ngayon alam ko na ]. Ako, nai-imagine ko sa'yo yung writer sa Stranger Than Fiction, dun sa scene na naisip na niya kung paano papatayin [ wala ako'ng maisip na ibang word for this one ] si Harold (Will Ferrel) nung nakita niya yung pagkahulog nung apple. [ akala ko talaga tutuluyan siya dun eh, i love the twist huhuhu ]. sa isip ko, parang ganun ka'ng writer ate. madalas ma'ng parang isang mahabang roller coaster ride ( emotionally ) yung mga stories mo, you always deliver. They’re always worth it. :)

my only regret is that dahil au 'to, there’s no way na malalaman ni Zades 'to. Pero sana may mabasa siyang ganito ( yes, if possible, verbatim niya mabasa 'to ate, except yung sa ch. names lol ) para marealize na niya early on kung ano yung pwdeng mawala / mangyari / hindi mangyari / magbago if ever dadating sila ni Dreau sa ganitong point. Heads up lang ba kay Zades? ( jusme ang mga ideas ko lols ) pero syempre much better naman kung hindi na nila pagdaanan yun diba? Hayyy basta ate surprise us!!! Basta A&Z all the Way!!!!

{ parting question ate: naisip ko lang dun sa “what if” part; ano kaya mas ire-regret ni Zades kung sakali. Yung “what-if-na-hindi-naging-sila-ni-Andreau-at-di-niya-nasabi-yung-nararamdaman-niya” or yung “what-if-naging-sila-ni-Andreau-but-it-didnt-work-out-tapos-nagkalovelife-yung-isa-tas-yung-isa-narealize-siya-rin-pala-all-this-time”? (does that makes sense??? yung parang ganap sa au ng chesnine ganun) if ever, pareho parin sila'ng masakit ate T___T. Pero yung second, knowing A&Z, kung naging sila na, hindi na sila supposedly maghihiwalay right? AAARRRRGGGHHH basta kung ano-ano na naiisip ko ate}

Take care always, ate.

Upcoming Movies!

Jurassic World (June 12) – intriguing, but I am not convinced yet that we need another Jurassic Park…

Inside Out (June 19) – The latest Pixar original movie.  I almost stopped paying attention to Pixar after Cars 2 and Monsters University, but maybe this one will restore my confidence in Pixar…

Mr. Holmes (July 17) – Ian McKellen stars as Sherlock Holmes, who is 93 years old and looking for one last hurrah before he dies.  This one looks intriguing, based on Ian McKellen alone, one of my favorite actors.  Also with Philip Davis (from TV Sherlock) and Frances de la Tour…

The Man from U.N.C.L.E. (Aug. 14) – Henry Cavill’s spy thriller – could be interesting.

Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials (Sept. 18) – I loved the first one, but will the second live up to the original..?  I’m hopeful.

Victor Frankenstein (Oct. 2) – the Frankenstein story told from Igor’s point of view, with Daniel Radcliffe playing Igor and James McAvoy as Victor…nice.  Also with Mark Gatiss, Louise Brealey and Andrew Scott, all from the TV Sherlock.  Very nice cast.

Pan (Oct. 9) – sort of a Peter Pan origin story with the big name being Hugh Jackman as Blackbeard the Pirate.  Intriguing.

Bridge of Spies (Oct. 16) – Spielberg directed spy thriller, starring Tom Hanks and Alan Alda. Could be good.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 (Nov. 20) – the finale of the series - should be good.

The Martian (Nov. 25) – sci-fi thriller starring Matt Damon who plays an astronaut stranded on Mars after a dust storm hits his group.  It should be interesting to see how the film distinguishes itself from Interstellar and Gravity.

The Lady In the Van (Dec. 11) – cute movie starring Maggie Smith as an old lady who lives in a van.  Not sure what the plot is supposed to be, but with Maggie Smith it could be worth paying attention to.

Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens (Dec. 18) –  Star Wars returns…!  With J.J. Abrams writing and directing, this should be the show stopper of the year!
