Friendster Testiomonial # 84:

“The one who helps me with shopping decisions particularly with shirts and shoes. The one who actually yearns to hear my stories no matter how morose or mundane. The one who never fails to make me feel loved. The one who keeps steady my otherwise turbid life. The one. – Kid [Monday, August 29, 2005]

Simple things like that leave me with nothing to do but fall in love all over again. <3

I’m on a High
Posted on: 25th of August 2005 | Under: Life & Love

I love coffee and I love coffee shops.

Since it’s my final exam week, and I have four exams coming up (one everyday until Monday), I decided to study at Starbucks this afternoon. The perfect place, really. The whole ambiance was just perfect. Not too crowded and not as noisy as I thought it would be. In fact there were actually about 10 other people studying there too–for the bar exam, I presume (since they had big books on law and stacks of photocopies too).

Anyway, I sat myself down in one corner and did my studying. Over cups of coffee and a plate of ham and cheese croissant, I studied.

But, after downing two and a half cups of hazelnut caramel macchiato, I started feeling a little weird. Caffeine overdose, perhaps? Maybe.

I found myself blankly staring out of the window, for what must have been like 10 minutes or so. I was obviously spacing out. My blood was racing before me and I started feeling a little restless. My heart was beating faster than normal. I realized that I was no longer used to drinking more than one cup of coffee at one sitting.

Back when I was still studying Interior Design, I could gulp down over three cups in one night. I was used to the caffeine rush. In fact, I survived on coffee. Without coffee, I would’ve probably fallen asleep on my plates.

I guess I’m not used to it anymore.

But, despite the caffeine rush that I was no longer used to, I still got a lot of studying done. Thirteen whole pages on the church, the sacraments and Mary – all for my Dynarel exam tomorrow (more like later, actually). :) Sitting down for a good five and a half hours was definitely worth it.

After studying, I washed down the caffeine with an overdose of water, several trips to the bathroom, a 30-minute walk around Ruins and a long shower when I got home. It worked. ^^;;

Anyway, before I turn this post into endless babbling, I will go now. Wish me luck for my exams! :)

Love Is Truly Ironic
Posted on: 18th of August 2005 | Under: Life & Love

Love is both pesky and beautiful. It can help you to figuratively float on cloud nine, but at the same time it can make you sink your head on your pillow, crying buckets. It can notch up the cheesiness in your life, but at the same time it can double the pain felt. It can make you feel butterflies in your stomach, but at the same time it can make your heart feel like it’s been stabbed a thousand times.

Love is ironic, isn’t it? It makes you happy, and at the same time it makes you cry. Two extremes that, if you think about it, do not click at all. That’s what most people ponder on, but actually that’s the whole beauty of love. It’s supposed to be just as it is.

The true test of love is not how you handle the happy moments: rather, it is how you deal with the petty arguments and disagreements. It is how you manage to compromise and make the decision to stay, because you know that every trial just makes you stronger.

My own love life is not always cotton candy. We have our fights and bouts of squabbles. We get irritated with each other and hope nothing but silence from time to time. We clash at times and do things that make us cry like there’s no tomorrow. But, neither one of us ever give up. We know that all the arguments makes us stronger. We know that it’s essential for us to know each other’s flaws and weaknesses. All things happen between us so that we may understand eachother better and in order to love whole-heartedly. :)

Plus, the most wonderful feeling in loving is always the time when you kiss, hug and make up after a fall out. ^^;;

I love LOVE. <3
