Half of my heart is happy about the fact that RED Tour Philippines tickets were sold in less than 2 hours but half of my heart feels miserable for not being able to get one. *dying*

- "That’s the thing about pain - it demands to be felt."
- "I believe in true love, you know? I don’t believe that everybody gets to keep their eyes or not get sick or whatever, but everybody should have true love, and it should last at least as long as your life does."
- "You say you’re not special because the world doesn’t know about you, but that’s an insult to me. I know about you."
- "My love, I cannot tell you how thankful I am for our little infinity. I wouldn’t trade it for the world. You gave me a forever within the numbered days, and I’m grateful."
- "You don’t get to choose if you get hurt in this world but you do have some say in who hurts you."
I put my songs on shuffle then this hype song plays and I feel all good and happy and dancing and then the next second this specific song plays and I feel all fucked up in the corner of the room and I tell you I will never be okay again
i’m basically “pro-do whatever you want as long as you’re enjoying yourself and not hurting other people”
You read THAT long post? Aww. Thank you! And that is such a nice thing to say. I thought no one read it because, you know, basically, it has no notes at all. Even you didn’t like it. Haha. But thank you, thank you! :)
I am just another victim of the ups and downs of life. In those downs, many times have I wondered if there is actually even the tiniest bit of hope on going up again. Do I have to try again to have hope? Or do I need hope to be able to try again? Is hope gone the moment I knew that I get no second chance? Or do I get hope from a second chance? Or, maybe, another chance is hope itself? Am I down because I am hopeless? Or is my hopelessness dragging me down? Am I up because I am hopeful? Or is my hopefulness lifting me up? These are just some of the questions in my mind that are seemingly the same but are not.
I never had a clear understanding as to what "Hope" really is. And then, just this 1st January of 2014, I watched a movie that gave me a perfectly different and at the same time weird interpretation of ‘hope' with which I believe is the best.
It is a movie about a man who lived with nothing but hope. A man who hoped on hope itself. A man who kept on hoping even on the toughest of times. A man who, from the bottom, made his way up with hope. A man who kept on hoping even if others believed there is none. A man who kept on hoping just for the only woman he ever loved. A man who hoped and did everything only for that woman. A woman who, instead of carrying the burden as a result of the odd situations they went through together with him as his other half, did nothing for him and let him carry it alone. A woman who tells her she loves him but cannot prove it in any way. A man who never cared if she can or cannot prove it because he believes so. A woman who tells her she loves him but leaves him alone. A man who she left but still hoped for her to call back. A man who hopes from zero. A man who hopes from nothing. It is a movie about a man who died holding out hope.
Hope, I think, is biggest and most important thing on earth, and not the other four-letter word whose second letter is also ‘o’ and also ends with an ‘e’. It is the key to make anything effective. To make things work out. To make everything. And the man I am talking about taught me the most important of all things: To hope even if there is no hope. To hope even if it seems impossible. To not think that it is not possible. To go with my gut. To go against the flow if I have to. To struggle to transform my dreams into reality by both transcending and recreating the past. To hope.
Glad to have watched it on the first day of the new year. All my years, I’ve been f*cked up by nothing hopelessness which made everything in my life fall apart. It will probably make no sense to you if you haven’t watched the movie or read the book yet. Or if you happened to read or watch it, I’m not certain if you will think the same as I did. At the end of the day, we all have different interpretation, don’t we? All my respect goes to him. He is indeed great that it makes me want to meet him so badly. Hats off to "The Great Gatsby."
