A Paraphrase:

A paraphrase: LIFE is neither about chasing, nor envying others of what we don’t have; it is about being contented, and appreciating the things we have.

Says Lindsey

“YOU ARE NOT WORTH MY EVERYTHING,” says Lindsey, with a pout on her face. After months of having the on-and-off relationship with Patrick, she sure knows what will happen next.

Few minutes ago, while she was typing something for her paper, How To Have A Useful Marketing Strategy, due tomorrow, her friend, Lisa, called. “Oh, dear. I saw your spinach (Patrick) with that hell cat. They are both riding Patrick’s Isuzu…”

Lindsey took that into speculation before. Patrick, going out with another girl named Natasha…Natasha kissing Patrick publicly…both of them directing a show for all, and Lindsey crying over Patrick for being such a fool.

“Lisa, please stop…I can’t, uhm…I know Patrick’s happy with her side, but he loves me, still.”

Lisa chortles a bit. She sort of know that kind of laugh Lisa has when someone mocked her beyond extent.”Seems like he cares, you know? He loves you because you are so messed up believing him despite the distortion he’s causing you; or how about this…he loves you because he’s in for your money?’

The truth about Lisa’s theory hit her. It’s the kind of pain you feel when someone stabs you in the chest, two times a minute, digging deeper and deeper before you knew that you are dying. The soggy, scarlet blood is oozing right through that spot where the knife has beat you.

Do I have to stop the bleeding or let the hemorrhage continue until I no longer feel the pain because I’m already dead asleep?

To be continued…

Dear Yellow Tumbler

Dear Yellow Tumbler

Once upon a time, my mom bought us two tumblers. They were yellow and blue. My sister’s blue and mine’s yellow. For 6 consecutive years, I made my yellow tumbler a drinking glass – water, fruit juices, etc.

Needless to say, it has been with me through thick and thin. In our house, it was never a “beverage” without my tumbler. Apparently, it has a high sentimental value on me.

A few hours ago, while I was crunching on the butter cookies that mom gave, I pour a glassful of water to my tumbler and put it to my headboard.

I was fighting the urge to sleep when I caught a glimpse of my blanket – inviting me to sleep. At one stroke, my hands accidentally jerked the tumbler and it fell to the hard marble floor…

(That is not a new thing to me because I am used to having even gallons of water pouring because of my clumsiness.)

But soon as I ran out of my room to get the mop and dry the damped floor, I brought my tumbler with me to refill it, again, with water.

Then came the tiny drops of water pouring and pouring and…whaaaaaaat? I examined the yellow thing closely, only to find that it has a big crack at the lower part, but not bigger than a ballpoint pen.

Somebody, help me! I felt like my world is crashing…=(

Still, I yanked out and drank the remaining ounce of water to the tumbler I treasured for years!

Tantrums bewilder my room when I enter it, crying without tears. (Ha-Ha) Actually, I want to cry. I want to burst out of tears for losing my best-friend.

Some of you may find me “OA” for crying over this tumbler but it has been with me for 6 years, for goodness’ sake. Ugh, and now, it was broken…that fast? Or should I say, in just a blink of an eye?

But is this possible? Dad said I can trade it to Tupperware and they will give me a new one! (I am not sure, though.)
I have to say, the blue tumbler of my sister was broken after a year it was purchased by my mom. But this one was so unbreakable and solid!

Goodbye to you, yellow tumbler love! Or no, I will still keep you inside the cabinet to remind me that once upon a time, I have a dear friend like you. =) I will definitely miss you – my lips will.

A Rain Just Passed

ALL IS WELL NOW — The rain cooled the atmosphere, it was a great help to many. But my bed was partly wet; I need to curl myself up and sleep on the right side of it.

The internet cable was soaked with rainwater…I have to find a new paper bag to suit them.

Image

The clock  is still perfectly working, despite the heavy rain.

Image

My books are safe in their place. Thank you, Lord, my notebook wasn’t ruined because it has a thick celluloid cover. Yet, below that notebook, the router box has been damped with water side by side.

Image

Other than that, I am, still, not yet pissed. There’s no point of getting mad at this very moment. Holy Week, it is. What is easier than being soaked up with plenty of good things in your mind?

All I need to do is wipe them with dry cloth before everything else get cleared out, then I’ll not be sorry for doing so.

Oh, and one good thing. Blessed Virgin Mary and Jesus’ crucifix haven’t been sprinkled with just a single drop of rainfall. 

To make everything clear, these things I mentioned were located on the left side of my bed, just below my windowpane. A few hours ago, my mom and I had an agreement of going out. Right before the rain pours, I did go out from our house and I spent the early evening in my cousin’s house. And before I got a close grip to see my  open-from-a-heavy-rain-windows, I already saw droplets of water nearby, that was why I placidly ran to get a clean mop and a piece of cloth to dry everything.

LESSONS LEARNED: Do not forget to close all the open windows before you go out, esp. when you know that IT WILL RAIN…a heavy and cooling rain, it even cools your even-tempered mind.

One More Step To Summer

I’ve been hanging around to load some pictures and to find something to blog. School’s out, vacation’s in! But one thing that is provoking me to extract my thoughts and to post thousand or millions of photos I had is that, I missed half the fun!

Who wants to read a late blog post, anyway? 

Other than that, I am building castles in the air...if I am going to make this blog appealing the way I did in my previous posts (Oh, did I?), who wouldn’t dare to read my upcoming posts, again, no matter how late that event might seem?

Spell it = S.A.M.T.H.I.N.G.E.X.T.R.A.O.R.D.I.N.A.R.Y.

If that’s the case, let me show you the least photo I found in the latter.

Image

Do not take that note, literally, oh you, dear! Since it’s summer, I’m pursuing to post whereabouts of Heat. (And by the way, that is a page of my Physics notebook way back in High School. So lucky of me, I still have it locked inside my bookshelf.)

So, how’s your well running? As for my case, I drank almost a quarter of water to fill my cotton-mouth body.

You know, I am getting used to drink more not just because of the oxymoron: “freezing heat” of summer. (Technically, yes, because it’s sort of cold in the evening. Agree with me, please.) I drink a lot of water for the 74th Hunger Games survival! Kekeke. Isn’t water the very source of life?

Years ago, lessons in school remind me that you can survive 40 days without food, but you cannot live 4 days without WATER.

So…are you in for the one step before summer? Drink a lot of water, first. Before heading to the beach, to the sports club, or even most to the arena (Hunger Games) and play for keeps with death, it would be essential to have the H20 supply.

That is all and I hope you enjoy your summer, everyone! Make it a “Summer Unlike Any Other.” For now, let us spread this One More Step to Summer before we move on to the beach.
