She loves the city. Its lights, noise, and chaos.
Her work is in the heart of the city where elevator moments are never awkward.
Oh, it doesn’t mean that everyone at work are comfortable or friendly to each other.
It’s just that they don’t feel the need to chitchat with colleagues because everyone is always too busy minding their own business and eyes are always glued to smart phones.
No one would ever notice anyone, their breathing, nor their soul.
She doesn’t mind it. She actually likes it.. a lot.
Currently, I’m watching reruns of FRIENDS and it makes me think about the good old times.
Here is the list of songs that makes me miss my old friends and high school days 🙂
- Lost In Space – Lighthouse Family (This is a big part of our first year high! Hi I-Jonas!)
- No Matter What – Boyzone
- Superman – Five for Fighting
- This I Promise You – ‘Nsync (Actually, all the songs in No Strings Attached and Celebrity album)
- Sometimes – Britney Spears (and Baby One More Time)
- All or Nothing – O-Town
- Best I Ever Had -Vertical Horizon
- Like A Rose – A1 (too cheesy for JS prom and it feels like a little embarrassing haha)
- Pretty Boy – M2M (and some of their songs from their first album)
- Graduation – Vitamin C
“And so we talked all night about the rest of our lives
Where we’re gonna be when we turn 25
I keep thinking times will never change
Keep on thinking things will always be the same
But when we leave this year we won’t be coming back
No more hanging out cause we’re on a different track”
I’m not sure if the nostalgia I’m feeling right now is because of this afternoon sunshine that brings the same feels of what we had every afternoon class dismissal in senior year high school. Time sure does fly fast. Oh well.
“Hey..” is most likely the only word that will come out of my mouth when I see you. I can imagine myself just standing in front of you, tongue-tied, and struck with awe.
Bitten by your charm bug, I definitely am. I can’t fathom how a person from a thousand miles away would have such an impact in my mood and in my mind.
How could you come into my life without a warning? I was living peacefully until you came and put each of my days in deep reverie.
By mere seeing your name, my heart would jump. You’re greater than the serotonin in my coffee cup.
How dare you? How dare you steal a part of me in just a snap? You make me think how different we are and how we are apart.
But who knows what the future holds? It may be written in the stars that I will meet you someday. Our story might just start with “Hey..”
Flushed. I can feel my face is burning red and is numb. Do you know the feeling of arguing with someone while thinking the ace card is on your side? You’d contemplate on how dumb that person could be to even express himself when you both know that you know better than him.. only to find out later that you were wrong.
Earlier, I was arguing with my friend and I discovered later that he was right.
My self-righteous conscience smirked at me making my damaged pride pack its suitcase and it left me without saying goodbye.
I remember one time, my bestfriend and I met in a mall. We were looking for a coffee shop, CBTL to be specific. I forgot what that acronym stands for after a long time of not going there. I settled for “Coffee Blend” and didn’t bother what the “TL” means.
“Where’s the ‘CBTL? Coffee Blend?’ I asked the guard who was roaming around. “Huh? ‘Coffee Bleend,’ go straight and turn right.‘ My eyes wanted to roll but I just smiled and thanked him. Bubble thought: “The nerve of that man to correct me. My pronunciation is the right one!”
Thinking about that innocent man and my bestfriend who wouldn’t stop laughing, I was embarrassed and ashamed of what I thought. Well, not really. Maybe just a little bit. Anyway, of course the guard was right. I just misheard him. It’s Coffee Bean.
I have the same stories in different situations. I just never learn.
My mind is a b*tch. It can go from very pleasant to cruel one. But hey, I am glad my mouth has a filter.
