Lessons from Carson: Hope moderately, love fully

Disclaimer: Not a movie review. I’m just a girl feeling feelings who also believes that this film should be watched by many.

Warning: Might contain spoilers!

Hi, guys!

Have you watched I’m Drunk, I Love You. na? Kung hindi pa, you better hurry because some cinemas are already pulling it out (after a week palang!!!) because of idk some shitty system. You can’t really blame it on the lack of demand kasi dine-demand nga siya eh?

Bago ang emote, I want to commend Waltermart Calamba dahil nakikinig sila sa boses ng sambayanan char. When I called them to check kung showing sa kanila ang IDILY, grabe yung energy na sumambat sa akin:

Ate: HELLO WALTERMART CALAMBA HAPPY MORNING PO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Me: Ah eh. I’m Drunk, I Love You. Hello! Palabas po?

NATARANTA AKO BAKS. Si ate parang tumungga ng Milo. Yung energy niya, yun na yung energy ko for the whole work day. Hindi ko kaya.

Ang ending, wrong number ako kasi sa supermarket siya.

BACK TO REGULAR PROGRAMMING. I’m Drunk, I Love You. is about two (best) friends who went on a road trip (with my favorite Jason Ty) days before graduation. The movie isn’t about heartbreak, or your usual ‘friendzone’ tales.

It’s about real undisclosed feelings and settling the what ifs. In short, closure.

BIGLANG SERYOSO KO BA KASI NAMAN EH????

Happenings: Backstreet Boys Live in Manila 2015

If there’s anyone who I’ve been fangirling to the longest, it’s to these guys.

I fell in love with the Backstreet Boys when I first watched the Quit Playing Games video. I know so typical right?? And so sensual! I may have been 6 or 7 and sorry sobrang sexy ni hawi boy Nick! Never mind the other boys’ abs!!!!! Buhok palang ni Nick busog na me!

DIYOS KO LORD PATAWARIN

Ginising nya ang aking katawang lupa which is kinda disturbing if you think about it hehe. If you’re reading this parents, thank you for allowing me to watch MTV!!! Hehehe.

I’ve been a BSB fan for 18 years and their music is still a fixture in my everyday life. Hindi ako OA because nasa playlist ko forever ang BSB songs. If you see me *dancing* in my seat at work it’s probably cos I’m listening to Everybody or Larger than Life. Kung nageemote ako, it’s probably cos I’m listening to Shape of My Heart or Drowning.

Do you guys prepare before a concert? As in you listen to the artists’ playlist para you can sing along during the concert? I didn’t do that. I don’t have to. I’ve been ready for more than a decade.

Happenings: Ed Sheeran Live in Manila 2015

How do I even begin to describe Ed Sheeran’s show in Manila?

I wasn’t planning to blog about this because I don’t really have that much funny kwento other than ate iPad wearing cat ears (SURE KA BA SA PINUNTAHAN MONG CONCERT ATE) who basically ruined a few people’s experience (including us – but not totally) with her tablet and pink cover (seriously). But overall, if I may borrow from Ed’s (ED???) words from his Roundhouse gig in 2014, the whole show was a “big, climactic, orgasm of music.”

Ed nailed it. And damn f we didn’t leave the arena with a satisfied smile on our faces.

Happenings: Switchfoot live in Baltimore

I’ve been feeling super low since the past week (I kind of blame Maroon 5 for this) that I almost forgot that I will be seeing Switchfoot on the 26th! The thought hit me three days ago and I wasn’t really into it. Of course I wouldn’t want to waste my ticket and besides, I love the band so why not? It might lift my spirits! Plus, I really need to get out of the house.

I left home at around 6:30pm. The doors at Ram’s Head Live didn’t open til 7 so I got some time to spare. I didn’t want to wait in line since I was alone (huhu). I even checked social anxiety support forums on how to act when going to a concert alone. I’m a pretty self-conscious person so I was panicking and really very nervous yesterday morning. Luckily, I followed two Pinays (Nella and Faith) in line and they agreed to drag me with them during the waiting and the whole event. Talk about fate. Yayyy!

Mood Playlist: Songs about Chuva

Chuva has been my chuva for quite some time now. I can’t bring myself to write about him directly just cos 1) I don’t want him to find out and 2) I don’t want to admit to myself that it is Chuva who I… like? Need? Want? See, I’m still in denial! Hahahaha!

So dear Chuva, these are the songs that remind me of you. I can’t articulate everything I need/want to say so here goes:

1. If You’re Not The One – Daniel Beddingfield

If you’re not the one then why does my hand fit yours, this way? If I don’t need you then why am I crying on my bed? If I don’t need you then why does your name resound in my head? ANSWER MEEEEE!

2. Somewhere Only We Know – Keane

This is the second time’s this song is featured in my blog. I hear this and I think of you instantly. And maybe we could go somewhere only WE know? You know… just us. Don’t you like the sound of that? Us.

This could be the end of everything! Alamoyon 2012, end of the world daw *knocks on wood* So why don’t we go somewhere only we know? Pag-uwi ko siguro ng Pilipinas? Oops.

3. Things I’ll Never Say – Avril Lavigne

There are a lot of things I will never say to you just cos I don’t want to ruin a moment. That kept on happening until the last time we saw each other. I didn’t want to go all out. Oh well. Guess I wished my life awaaaaaaaay~

4. I Want To Hold Your Hand – The Beatles

“That’s what everybody wants, Nicky. They don’t want a twenty-four-hour hump sesh, they don’t want to be married to you for a hundred years. They just want to hold your hand.” – Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist

I do. I just want to hold your hand.

Always.

Haaay Chuva. You have no idea how much I miss you. Ni kamustahin ka hindi ko magawa. So I’ll let you assume that this post is about you. I hope you’re well and see you soon.
