“Anyone who falls in love is searching for the missing pieces of themselves. So anyone who’s in love gets sad when they think of their lover. It’s like stepping back inside a room you have fond memories of, one you haven’t seen in a long time.”—Haruki Murakami
Last time I checked, you are not his girlfriend anymore. You didn’t even last a for a month. Another thing, we’re not even dating or something. We are close friends though. Mind your own business bitch.
It’s what I hate the most. When I see people so happy, I keep on asking why I can’t feel the same. There’s this feeling of jealousy that keeps coming up. And I would wonder if I’ll ever be that happy. I just don’t know. I’m supposed to be feeling good when I watch such happy things, but the opposite just happens.
In Nov. 2001, the world was introduced to a wide-eyed little boy named Harry Potter and the lightning scar on his forehead. Immediately, we were captivated by his story—essentially, a tale of survival—and joined him in his adventures. We watched him grow up to be a fine young…
A while ago, during our Sociology class, the professor asked the guys this situational question:
Are you going to marry your girlfriend even if she is unemployed?
There was a pause and we all thought that the guys were thinking about it deeply. But then, someone shouted:
"Is the girl pretty and sexy?"
And then all the boys agreed and waited for the professor to answer. The professor said that it’s not the point, but then the guys are too persistent so he said yes, situationally.
Hearing this, we, the girls, looked at each other, obviously bothered. I mean, yes it’s just hypothetical and all, but is it really necessary for a girl to be hot to be loved and married by a guy? Maybe I’m just too affected because I don’t have much on the looks department but really, is it a must? Isn’t love the real factor here? Looks fade and wither right? Doesn’t the feeling matter more than just the physical aspect? If yes, then I wouldn’t wonder why majority of marriages fail. If the grounds of their relationship is based on looks alone, then it’s not a surprise that couples are divorced. I am not saying that every guy in this world is like this, I know that there will always be exceptions. It’s just that, if guys are like these, how the hell are girls going to be treated right? Some girls are just too lucky to find a guy decent enough to look past the face and body.

George married Angelina Johnson, and had two children with her - a son named Fred, in memory of his late brother, and a daughter named Roxanne.
Neville became a professor at Hogwarts, and married Hannah Abbott, who ran the Leaky Cauldron.
Luna married fellow naturalist Rolf Scamander, the grandson of the author of ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’. The couple had twins, Lorcan and Lysander. Her marriage was considerably later than her friends’ marriages.
Dolores Umbridge was arrested for her crimes against Muggle-borns.
Kingsley Shacklebolt became the new Minister of Magic, and he allowed those who fought in the final battle to became Aurors without getting their NEWTs.
Dementors were removed from Azkaban.
Percy worked as a high official in the new Ministry, and married a woman named Audrey.
Draco married a woman named Astoria Greengrass.
Hermione eventually translated the Tales of the Beetle the Bard from the original. Dumbledore’s notes - which were lent to Hermione by Professor McGonagall - on each tale were included in the final publication.
Voldemort was forced to exist in the grotesque and stinted form after his death (as he was in Harry’s limbo) for his crimes were too severe for him to become a ghost.
Ron and Hermione were the godfathers of James, Harry and Ginny’s eldest son.
James Potter would occasionally steal the Marauder’s Map from his father’s desk to have fun with it at Hogwarts.
Harry, Ron, and Hermione were featured on Chocolate Cards - a feat which Ron considered his greatest accomplishment.

Harry was on “Christmas Card” terms with Dudley, and occasionally visited him. These were occasions that were dreaded by Harry’s children.
Harry and Draco made peace, and were civil with each other.
Oh damn, I want to know how these all happened, IN DETAIL!!
Isn’t the Tale of Three Brothers actually describing Voldemort, Snape and Harry? Voldemort, who so wanted to be the most powerful so badly, could be the eldest brother. Severus Snape, who’s blinded by his love and longing for the dead Lily Evans, could be the second brother. And Harry, who death can’t seem to successfully conquer for a lot of times, could be the third brother. The story is just so amazing. Makes me love it so much.
So here’s to the boy who I don’t regret falling for Here’s to the boy who thought I was a complete bore Here’s to the feelings I couldn’t find the words to describe Here’s to those feelings that never left my mind Here’s to my stupidity self who thought about it too much Here’s to me being a coward for not speaking up Here’s to this boy that I don’t think I’ll forget Here’s to the boy who won’t even remember how we met Here’s to that boy who will think I’m pathetic for writing this Here’s to the friendship that I sometimes miss
Sorry, but I just got home from watching Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part 1. And all I could say is that I want July 2011 to come faster!! Of course, as an avid reader, the book is much much better than the film. There were a lot of scenes that were left off and there were also altered scenes. As for those who don’t read the book and just watch the movies, I think it’s quite okay and the story was understandable enough. There were so much mushy and cheesy scenes of Ron and Hermione. The people watching was like, squealing and screaming every time there is a Ron-Hermione moment. And the movie was all too emotional for me, or maybe it was just because I got carried away of all the happenings. Although it was supposed to be a dark part of the series, the movie was sprinkled by a few really REALLY funny scenes especially the part where the Golden Trio went to the ministry. Tom Felton’s acting was also very VERY VERY good even though he hasn’t got much part there. I was also too shocked of Dan and Emma’s kissing scene and now, I think I could understand why Dan described Emma like an “animal”. The Tale of The Three Brothers was also amazing. I just can’t explain how brilliant the animation was. It was all too good. Part 1 ended as they aparated away from the Malfoy Manor and with Voldemort seizing Dumbledore’s wand from the tomb.
Sorry for this epic spoiler but I just can’t help myself. I am still shocked, excited, happy and sad because of the movie.
It’s really different when you get to hang out with your closest friends. I, for one, feel very much at ease when I am with my most trusted friends. Maybe one of the reasons why I was so happy a while ago, when we ate together, is that we don’t regularly spend our time together these days. We have different sections, so we have different schedules thus, having barely enough time to be with each other. I really cherish these such spare time when we could all hang out because these are the times that I feel like I’m truly happy. Maybe because I am so carefree when I’m with them and we could talk openly about anything. Just a while ago, we were talking about the morning “wood”. Of course the girls don’t know about it so we asked our guy friends and then that started the laugh. We were all laughing our asses off and yet we don’t feel ashamed or judged. Truly, the time I spend these kind of people are priceless.
Harry Potter has reached out to an estimate of 200 countries, spoke out in over 69 languages and has touched the lives of more than 400 million people. It is the phenomenon that ignores race, age, gender or religion and it has brought us together despite all our differences. We are the Harry Potter generation. ϟ
I’ve recently downloaded the whole album and I am actually enjoying the songs. It’s not all party-ish and the message of each song is nice. My favorite is Fading Away. It’s about finally realizing that she needs to move on. It’s about being ready to let go and knowing that things have changed.
Ohh Ohh I just cant sleep tonight. Knowing that things aint right. Its in the papers, its on the tv, its everywhere that I go. Children and crying. Soldiers are dying Some people don’t have a home But I know there’s sunshine behind that rain I know there’s good times behind that pain, hey Can you tell me how I can make a change I close my eyes I can see a brighter day I close my eyes and pray I close my eyes I can see a better day I close my eyes and pray
I lose my appetite, knowing kids starve tonight. When I sit up, cause my dinner is still on my plate. Ooo I got a vision, to make a difference. And its starting today.
Cause I know there’s sunshine behind that rain I know there’s good times behind that pain, hey Can you tell me how I can make a change I close my eyes I can see a brighter day I close my eyes and pray I close my eyes I can see a better day
I close my eyes and pray for the broken-hearted. I pray for the life not started I pray for all the ones not breathing. I pray for all the souls in need. I pray. Can you give you give em one today. I just cant sleep tonight. Can someone tell how to make a change?
I close my eyes I can see a brighter day I close my eyes and pray I close my eyes I can see a better day I close my eyes and pray
For a Justin Bieber Song, the message is actually good.
“Everyone, at some point in their lives, wakes up in the middle of the night with the feeling that they are all alone in the world, and that nobody loves them now and that nobody will ever love them, and that they will never have a decent night’s sleep again and will spend their lives wandering blearily around a loveless landscape, hoping desperately that their circumstances will improve, but suspecting, in their heart of hearts, that they will remain unloved forever. The best thing to do in these circumstances is to wake somebody else up, so that they can feel this way, too.”—Lemony Snicket (Horseradish: Bitter Truths You Can’t Avoid)
At, last the first week of classes is over. I was so tired even if it’s just the beginning of the second semester. I am also having difficulties in adjusting with my new blockmates. Although some of them are quite friendly, there are still a lot whom I haven’t been able to talk to yet. It’s still awkward since we had our sections reshuffled so we get to stay with new students. I hope that we could all be at ease by next week.
“We could learn a lot from crayons..
Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull.
Some have weird names, and all are different colors,
but they all have to live in the same box.”—Unknown (via 500daysofkissingmypillow)
Love. Or whatever hell is that. I just don’t take it for granted. I’m sorry but I’m not those type who just enjoy being in a relationship and then if it’s boring, they’d end it. It’s different for me. It’s hard for me to get over someone and it takes time for me to heal. No one could ever tell me that it’s easy to find someone else. Once I love someone, the hold on that person to me is very tight and that person will always have a place in my heart.
First, they know that I was in our province this past sembreak. I was hoping they could understand why I was not able to be with them. Second, when I had time before going to my province, I go to their house and tried my best to spend good time with them. WHat I don’t get is why they felt that I neglect them? And you know what? A while ago, they had this get together and I wasn’t even informed. I just knew about it last couple of minutes ago. And now, they are telling me that they feel like I’m getting away from them and that I was trying to avoid them? What did I do? I wasn’t even told in the first place? I love them. They’re my closest friends and I don’t want to lose them. But why did this happen? I feel so hurt. I just feel so confused and sad at the same time.
Sometimes, it’s much better than having everyone sticking their nose in my every business. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not that I don’t want others to care for me, it’s just that I hate the feeling whenever I get criticized and told of.

How can I explain the pure joy that this text gave me?
And then again, I was told this quite a lot this past week by my relatives who have seen me when I went to our province. I know that I am not one of those skinny people who are so loved by others but hey, can I not be like this? I am not obese to the point where I can’t move my body and do stuff. I am just, well, I am overweight. But, am I not allowed to be myself? How can I accept myself the way I am if you, my blood relatives, are trying to change me. I know it won’t hurt if I lose a bit pounds but can’t you just not shove it to my face that I’m not sexy or whatever? I want to feel good about myself. I am trying. I just need you to be considerate. Please? Am I asking too much?
After 3 long days of staying at our province, I am finally back. I missed being online and tumbrin’ at night. Back there, the internet connection was so crappy that I have to wait for a couple of minutes for the page to load. I missed reading posts and staying up late just watching online movies. LALALALALA. :)
