Last October, I had my hair permed. I was excited to embrace change and thought that it was a good idea. Well, we all learn from our mistakes. Though I must say I look good in pictures but in reality, permed hair is pretty hard to maintain. I received some messages to blog about permed hair and here it is!
This summer, Krista, my ever lovely food buddy and I went out to date again and this year we had Johnny Rockets. I was curious to try the burger chain since I often see their chefs and waiters dancing outside the food chain trying to amuse passerbys. Apparently, I haven’t seen them dancing when we were there.
The Jukebox which Krista Abused.
Very vintage and american, I must say. I love the ambiance! Red, steel and black checkered floors.
I’ve had this strawberry milkshake on my summer bucket list and my, oh my. It was great. It tasted like ice cream!
Strawberry and Vanilla teaser shakes for 145php
The Original burger 285php. I love it. A lot said that it doesn’t taste good but I guess we all have different tastes :)
I forgot what Krista’s order is but all I remember is this burger was really spicy daw. So, yeah. I’ll ask her if you want to know :))
The apple pie 240 php. I regretted buying this since it’s too expensive and Krista and I were both really full already. Gah, we even had the unli fries for 60php which was nakakumay for me.
Krista and I enjoyed Johnny Rockets so much, we were so bloated! But the experience was all too good I might come back and try their other burgers.
He asked me what’s wrong and I told him, it’s nothing. Because how can you sum up your pain in words? By the other end of the line, he sighed. That was my cue.
I convinced myself that nothing is wrong. Nothing suffocating my chest and my lungs. Nothing slowly numbing my veins. Nothing choking my soul with tears not shed and words left unsaid. Nothing washing over me, nothing slowly killing me. Oh, no, nothing’s wrong because everything in me is falling apart.
i want a late night adventure. i want someone to call me up and say, “i’m outside. let’s go do something!” i want to go out late at night in my pj’s and my hair all tied up. maybe drive around. go to a park and just swing on the swings. maybe sit in the grass and watch the stars or maybe go to a 24 hour food place and pig out. i just want a late night adventure with people i like to be around. no drama. nothing but good vibes and good company.
I’ve always wanted something like this for a long time and oh! Confess, confess, I finally took the courage to walk out of our house in the middle of the night, with my keys and essentials, all sleepy but also excited, with the adrenaline pumping in my veins. Yes, totally bad-ass. My summer days may be boring but that doesn’t mean my nights (and dawns can I just add) would be. :> Meh, it’s pretty scary though but when you’re with someone you trust, it’s nothing. But I’m glad I did that, if I had a bucket list I’d add check that with the date on.
Another time, yes? :)
They say that opposites attract, a cliche even your 10-year old niece has heard of. Different poles meet, opposites fill each other’s missing holes and all the other things we say to support the cliche we’ve all clung to all our lives: opposites DO attract.
When boy meets girl, we don’t think of the future yet, that’s so Ted Mosby. We linger in the moment, we cherish the butterflies in our stomach, the blushes, the rainbows and smiles, the leaps and skips of our heartbeats and we treasure all the firsts that we could; first dates, first anniversary, first kiss and all the firsts a couple could think of.
And then for a while, we run out of firsts and everything becomes a routine. We get to know the person we like better and saw all their flaws, all their passions and hobbies and likes and peeves and fetishes and all those things we’ve already memorized. It was fun learning them at first but as we get to know the person deeper and see how different they are from us, we tend to be scared, frustrated or sometimes angry for them not being able to understand what we want or what we like.
So opposites don’t attract, it’s a myth. The fights are longer, the painful words stab at our chests and the tears flood the conversations. There are gaps and coldness and spaces we haven’t noticed before and as the sacrifices and demands don’t meet, that’s when the clash happens.
The problem is, we tend to overlook the good side of the person. We tend to ignore all the happiness and joy and love they made us feel from the first day of meeting until the day we realize how in love we really are. We tend to forget that relationships don’t take care of themselves but we take care of our relationships and of course, we take care of the person that matters to us most.
We always, always forget that relationships is not all about love but also about compromise and respect and sacrifice. There is a reason why we must use the “we” perspective not the “me” perspective.
Because when we truly love the person that’s when we learn to understand and accept. Because love doesn’t always mean kissing and touching and cheesy pick-up lines and flowers and rainbows. Because love also meant patience and trust and caring for our loved one’s happiness. We cannot say that opposites don’t attract because that violates the laws of physics. They do. They do attract and last because we understand what love really meant.
