One Day

Don’t keep fighting battles that are already lost.

she was reaching the limits of how much it’s possible to change a man.

Finally finished reading this incredible book, One Day which is soon going to be a major motion picture starring Anne Hathaway (Love and Other Drugs) and Jim Sturgess (21). I think they’re both perfect to play Emma Morley and Dexter Mayhew and I’m so excited for Anne on her British accent (even if critics say she’s awful I know the movie will still be fantabulous). Also, The setting is in Europe specifically in Edinburgh but they’ve done a lot of travelling so I’m pretty sure they’re gonna film the parts in Greece, Paris, etc. What I like about this book is that even if the places are really romantic, it’s actually an emotional riveting love story. Bittersweet to put it in one word.

Here’s the movie trailer. The movie’s gonna be out in August! 🙂
but if you guys are planning to read the book before the watching the movie, I suggest don’t watch the trailer or else you’ll get spoiled.

This is prolly my favorite chapter and I’m so satisfied to have seen it on the trailer and it was greatly shot.

One last thing! Movie’s soundtrack is Good Life by One Republic. One of my forever LSS.

Day 1: Denial

And when it rains on your parade, look up rather than down. Without the rain, there would be no rainbow. ☁ ☂ ☁
This picture was taken days ago when it started raining here in Cebu.
I’d like to think that the sky is making “ramai” on my pointless drama and I want to share this perfect song for this perfect weather:

Song brought to by the epic Adele on her 19 album (published years ago).
Feel the stabbing pains of the lyrics HAHA

Strangers, again

Whether it’s taking each other for granted or people changing over, bottom line is:
Someone STOPS trying and feelings AREN’T as strong as before. ☹

 

So I was sulking this morning with the rain and from waking up with what seemed like a very long sleep (as indicated by my clock) but felt like I haven’t slept at all because there’s a lot of stuff going on inside my head and I keep on waking between hours.
I found this video which I kept seeing on twitter months ago but never actually watched it but something led me to search youtube and it poached my heart really hard and I feel like blogging.

These are actually the songs played on the short documentary as written on the credits. I have a special love for youtube artists like David Choi and Kina Grannis amongst Cathy Nguyen (Marissa), AJ Rafael, Andrew Garcia and others.

I wasn’t born with enough middle fingers to let you know how much I feel. ┌П┐
But I think watching this video will suffice that I’m quite depressed right now (EEEW. that doesn’t even sound like me and my best friends are gonna roll their eyes when they read this) but the video is so sad and true and I know we all can relate to it.
