I would love to tell you everything about him, but then you'll fall in love with him too.

Thoughts of him infiltrate every inch of my head.
It is as if someone took a butter knife and spread a thick layer of him all over my mind.

This is bordering on ridiculous.

(but a nice kind of ridiculous, if i may add)


And by now I'm guessing a couple of people have already started rolling their eyes (some possibly smiling sheepishly to make up for the fact that they are rolling their eyes) at the current theme my blogposts has been following. But i'm pretty smitten, so I really dont care.

The thing is, nothing is ever for certain and you can never ever be dead sure of something.
You can spend half of your life working on something, and it might just go bust in a blink of an eye.
On the other hand, you can also be waltzing about, not expecting anything, and getting something that is much better than what you would have thought to ask for in the first place.

At the end of the day, you can't tell which is which.
That's why you should just fully indulge yourself in the current blessing (enjoy your present!) and hope to God that THIS will stick around.

And i'm sure, somewhere deep within, you'll know if this is just like all the other times, or if it's really something else.

When The Universe Speaks To You Through Soundtracks

And for tonight, it's the much awaited for Angels - The XX

It doesn't have to be on Valentine's Day. 

It doesn't have to be by the time you turn eighteen or thirty-three or fifty-nine. 

It doesn't have to conform to whatever is usual. 
It doesn't have to be kismet at once, or rhapsody by the third date. 

It just has to be. In time. In place. In spirit.

It just has to be. 

- David Levithan

I think I'm a little too agitated tonight to be able to write my own words. 
Because there has been a word-supply shortage, lately. 
Good thing there's an endless amount of messages that the Universe has been kind enough to lend me.

(Before i forget, cheers to songs that give you goosebumps and make the hairs at the back of your neck stand up ; Songs that make you both want to cry and laugh at the same time)

Again, in the words of Mr. Levithan, "You know that feeling when you treat someone's every word as if it weighs more than anyone else's but you don't even know why?"

You know? No? Know?

Behind The Scenes

because i'm smiling underneath these hands that cup over my face.
because the instant i hear your voice, i let out a sigh of relief
because i both understand and don't understand at the same time
because all the cliches finally make sense
because, well, because,

*avoids eye contact and takes a sip of water*

Second Chances

If you ask me, i'll tell you that second chances are the best kind of blessings that one can get.

It comes in various forms and sizes -
a retest for a paper you did badly in the first time around
a new canvas for a do-over of your artwork
a dejavu of a previous relationship (a Re-relationship?)

This time around :
learn the formulas
make sure there are no more careless mistakes
hold your brush well
dont anticipate the result - just enjoy the process
tread carefully, watch what you say, and most importantly
handle the feelings of others the way you'd like your sentiments to be handled.
