Happy Ending

I wish you a story with a happy ending and the wisdom to look for it.
~ "My Sassy Girl"

This is what I get for watching mushy love stories when I'm bored, but this makes sense. A happy ending doesn't just come and happen. I have to do something in order to get what I want. That's why I believe in both destiny and free-will.

This year is about to end like all chapters in the book and I have to start a new one. My story, so far, is not as exciting or interesting as I would want it to be. Nevertheless, it is full of significant events and roller-coaster emotions. I am grateful for this year. I have learned a lot from my mistakes and experiences. I have also learned to treasure the people who love and care for me. This year also introduced me to new-found friends whom I know I will always remember.

I am looking forward to next year. I just have the feeling that I can finally start on working to get the happy ending that I wanted.

Happy New Year, everyone! =)

Falling Into Place

I am feeling optimistic today and this rarely happens, so here goes...

There will come a time in one's life when everything seems to fall into place. I have always believed that things happen for a reason. Sometimes, the reasons aren't clear enough. Sometimes, the reasons just make life more confusing and heartbreaking. Time can be a friend, if you want it to be.

Yesterday, I accompanied my parents to the hospital. It was my mother's birthday and I didn't want her to spend her special day alone while waiting for my father's operation to finish. My diabetic father had his cataracts removed from his right eye. The operation was successful and we will be facing a few weeks of adjustment at home. My mother and I never really bonded that way I bond with my girl friends or sister. Sometimes, I prefer to be quiet when I'm with her because I can't seem to gauge her moods and/or perceptions in some instances. But sometimes, quiet time is enough. Lately, I haven't been a really good daughter and spent time with them because work always takes my time away. I know that'll change soon.

I had a chat with my best bud today, after a long time of not talking since she's halfway around the world. I was glad we talked. I was surprised about the main topic of our conversation but I was so happy to listen to her. I miss her a lot.

I had a feeling that I may be lost now but eventually, everything will fall into place. I may not be able to find a purpose right now but I am ok. I am happy, most of the time. I have people who love me, care for me and trust me. I may not have a "love life" (haha!), but I am good. Everything will be ok. I just know it. =)

Bite Me!

Carlisle bit me.

I wish!

Oh well, "Twilight" the movie is so-so. I didn't really except much. There were a lot of mushy moments and I don't think the cheesy cinematography and directing really helped at all. They could have cut down on the spinning, super close-up and supposedly romantic scenes, and added more action/adventure ones.

Surprisingly, I appreciated Kristen Stewart's acting as Bella. She was klutzy enough. Charlie was not really what I physically imagined but Billy Burke's acting gave justification to the character. I realized Robert Pattinson actually looked more yummy when the scene is a bit dark (during the dinner date and during prom night) and looked yucky with glaring lights on (cafeteria scenes). The smirks are nice. The makeup should have been applied evenly. Yes, that includes the neck and nape. The dazzling was ok, but I didn't like the background sound effects when he was dazzling. It made me think of fairy tales and Tinkerbell. In all fairness, he has a better bod compared to his Cedric Diggory days but he didn't actually made me fall in love with Edward all over again. No offense, R Pat fans! Cam Gigandet as James, on the other hand, made me love to hate him. I think he was the best actor to fit the character. I am saving the best for last. I have loved Dr. Carlisle Cullen in the book. Watching Peter Facinelli on screen made me love him more! I think I wanna watch the movie again because of him. *love*love*

I am counting the days. After more than 4 years, I am finally going to move on to (hopefully) somewhere better. I am crossing my fingers that everything will work out for me. I am going to miss a lot of moments and a lot of people. I am just doing this for myself this time. I guess there are going to be lessons learned, such as never taking someone important for granted. *sigh*

Here's to getting bitten... and moving on! =)
