“Sex is difficult; yes. But those tasks that have been entrusted to us are difficult; almost everything serious is difficult; and everything is serious.”— Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet (translated by Stephen Mitchell)
Because you know you need one when you’re thinking of a million other things aside from the woman who had two navels—
which also means that:
1. I am back. Sort of. I’m back to reading almost non-stop, and I can feel it, I might write something too. The carelessness and recklessness are also kicking in—with a little dose of maturity (I hope so).
2. The little issues that are usually tucked in the darkest corners of my mind are baaaaack gah. I don’t want them to be, but there’s just too much idle time. Metaphysical anguish, as one of my friends say. So cheers, Ace.
3. I wonder too much. And what is so new about that?
4. It’s time to assess myself again.
5. I might have to actually do things, even if it’s not my type of thing just so I could satisfy my curiosity temporarily (temporarily, because there’s too much of the world out there to suppress curiosity).
6. There is a need to find something/be found by something.
7. As life gets more and more interesting, it also gets more and more complicated. A break is both a necessity and a privilege.
I always regret checking out my Twitter news feed, since everyone’s been updating about The Hunger Games and it’s my responsibility to stay away from spoilers—as someone who’s not priveleged enough to have watched the movie by now. So, I now declare a Twitter pseudo-hiatus. (I might have to stay away from Tumblr too, once bloggers start posting about the movie.) XD
Bumalong ang dagta sa hiniwang kaimito. Namuo sa talim ng kutsilyo ang ilang patak.
Diyan ako naiwan, mahal, at hindi sa laman.

isa sa paborito kong eksena sa “Ang Sayaw ng Dalawang Kaliwang Paa” ay nang hinimay nina Dennis at Marlon ang tulang ito.
Hanggang ngayon, hindi ko pa rin lubusang maintindihan ang tulang ito. Kapag ikinakabit sa pelikulang Ang Sayaw ng Dalawang Kaliwang Paa, parang (take note: parang) naiintindihan ko na. Pero kapag babasahin ko uli nang hiwalay sa pelikula, naliligaw uli ako. Namamanghang naliligaw. Naliligaw na namamangha. Kamangha-manghang pagkaligaw. Hay.
