I'd really love to go out and have coffee with you.
Veni. Vidi. Amavi.

.I thought I was alone and sad. But the more I think about it, the more I’ve come to realize that I have cherished nothing more but my singleness. My freedom to do everything I like without anyone hindering me. That I would trade hours of being with someone, with hours of staying at home, reading books or watching movies I have missed when they were shown in theaters.

I’m no hopeless romantic, I just thought I was.

I have read them, and Jonas and Gabe are featured, although in what capacity are spoilers. Hihi.

Whoa. That’s good to know. Thank you for the heads up. Teehee. But the fact that the sled miraculously appeared still overwhelms me. hahaha. Hmmm. Can you go off anon please? I have questions regarding the other books. If it’s okay though. :)

Hi! Just wanted to let you know that The Giver actually has three sequels, which sort of continue Jonas's and Gabe's story ;)

I don’t know about that. As far as what I have read. The other three (Gathering blue, the messenger and the son) have a different storyline. I’m not sure though if both Jonas and Gabe are going going to be featured.

The Giver takes you to a place where everything is governed by a group of elders. Job assignments, the manner of speaking and even the choice of spouse are weighed carefully. Order is given high importance to ensure the safety of the individuals in the community.

It may sound interesting but the catch is you’ll have to live a life full of “sameness”. There would be no variations in colors, in feelings and in sound. Everything would be monotonous. Only the Receiver has access to the memories of the world. Only this individual knows what it feels to be loved and to be in pain.

The book is pretty light to read. You don’t really have to think hard in order to grasps what the author wants to tell you. The only problem I encountered is the ending.

{Maybe a spoiler}

Towards the ending of the book, Jonas found himself on top of the hill reliving one of the memories that the Giver has imparted him with. He and Gabe sled their way to what we can call as the “Elsewhere”. It ended giving us the impression of them having a bright future.

What I can’t shake off of my mind is the fact that it can be a Deus Ex Machina. It is very unlikely that a sled would appear just when they needed it. Well, there is a possibility, but still the probability of someone leaving a sled on top of the hill is very slim.

That is why it also led me to another conclusion, and that is Jonas and Gabe died. The ending was just a recollection of his favorite memory. Just like what happened to The Little Match Girl, she lit her last matches in order to see her grandmother, the only person who treated her well.

Or I could be wrong. Maybe the author really wanted it to end that way. A happy ending for everyone.

It’s a panopticon not a labyrinth.

I seriously had high hopes for this book. I was enthralled with how the author wrote the introduction and I even told myself that maybe this novel could be better than any of John Green’s works.

It wasn’t long after that when I noticed that they are in a way similar. i don’t know if that’s because they are both YA novel writers but the thing is I can’t help but compare it with Looking for Alaska.

Both female protagonists are smart ass bitches who people don’t noticed just because both can give mind boggling quotes. All the while, the main male characters are freakin’ clueless.

Honestly, I would have love this book if I wasn’t able to read any of Green’s novels. It’s unfortunate though since it’s overshadowed by one of the mainstream writers today, but if she’s going to published another one, I might give it a try.

Still, I love the first and last paragraph of the book. Hahaha.

She tasted like buried treasure and swing sets and coffee. She tasted the way fireworks felts, like something you could get close to but never really have for yourself.

Guess it’s true
I’m not good
At a one night stand
But I still need love
Cos I’m just a man
These nights never seem to go to plan
I don’t want you to leave
Will you hold my hand

Oh won’t you
Stay with me
Cos you’re
All I need
This ain’t love
It’s clear to see
But darling
Stay with me

Why am I so emotional?
No it’s not a good look
Gain some self control
Deep down I know this never works
But you can lay with me
So it doesn’t hurt

Oh won’t you


Stay with me
Cos you’re
All I need
This ain’t love
It’s clear to see
But darling
Stay with me

Oh won’t you
Stay with me
Cos you’re
All I need
This ain’t love
It’s clear to see
But darling
Stay with me

So, it’s the time of the year when I can officially steal one of your photos in FB. hahahaa.I was really thankful for that letter you made on my birthday and I was planning to make one myself but that would mean I’m being unoriginal. So, I decided to make a post instead, which I usually do during your birthday!

Happy Birthday Rogelio!

That’s it. Hahahaha. Let’s save the drama for our private conversations. LOL.

Deh joke. Parang every birthday mo na lang kasi ako nagsasabi na isa ka sa mga uber long time friends ko dito. Yan lang ang laging laman ng mga sinasabi ko. HAHAHHA.

So, instead I’ll wish you a very happy happy happy happy happy birthday! May you be blessed with a lot of boys. HAHAHAHAHAHA. Wag girls kasi baka magkaka gf ka na at wala ka ng panahon para sa mga friends mo. Kaya boys na lang. HAHAHAHHAHAHA.

Sige, God Bless you Rogelio and Ingat ka lagi.

Labyu~~~~

I came along
I wrote a song for you
And all the things you do
And it was called ‘Yellow’

Brooding

And i let my thoughts overwhelm me
Cause there is no other bigger let down
Than to have your expectations cut short.

We were supposed to go to Agutayan Island but the weather’s not on our side so we had a detour. Went to tinago and maria cristina falls instead.

I think Kuroshitsuji is just one of my all time fave animes. Too bad there’s no Alois Trancy this season. :P
