Answer Me Baby


You only want me when it’s convenient
You only love me when
You’re scared
I’m so crazy for you, oh
Baby, is it wrong to want you
A bit crazy for me, too?

Oh, honey, life is too short
To burn your eyes all day
Figuring out figures that don’t want
To be figured out

Oh, honey, life is too short
For saving words for your deathbed
Words that will be worth nothing
In the end.

You only want me when it’s convenient
You only love me when
You’re scared
I’m so crazy for you, oh
Baby, is it wrong to want you
A bit crazy for me, too?

If I only had a car
I’d drive you to our secret spot
Tell you secrets you’d want to hear

But you only want me
When it’s convenient
You only love me
When you’re scared

Reality Check #1

It’s the kind that’s real only in the fake lives of others. But it’s the one I want. It’s the only kind I’ll ever want.

Five Things You Learn Eventually

1. In the long run, “dress to impress” never works.
2. #1 Only backfires.
3. A comfortable comfort level is hard to reach sometimes.
4. It seems as if you’ll never get to #3.
5. When in doubt, sleep it off.

Shameless Plugging Ahead

Growing up, I’ve always loved paper and its various applications. I enjoy taking in the scent of books old and new, comparing different types of paper stock with my fingers, and hoarding notebooks for my collection. Now that I’m older, why not continue that love affair and marry it with my passion for capturing images?

There’s a tiny arts and crafts fair happening the weekend of July 20 & 21 and I’ve been fortunate to have been given a space to show and sell my work! If you’ll be in the neighborhood, drop by the “10a Alabama Arts & Crafts Fair” over at Alabama Street, New Manila to say hi. I’ll be there all weekend, with a new collection of photos printed on postcards, bookmarks, and other fun paper stuff.

Like the 10a Alabama Arts and Crafts Fair Facebook page for more information on the other crafty folks who’ll be joining.

Note to Self

You become extra vulnerable when you know that there’s something you must do with your life, but that something is still unknown. Suddenly every fake attack on your persona feels like an insult. Since you’re too sensitive to segregate emotion from reason, you resort to frowning and being moody, claiming each joke causes a tiny heartbreak. How heartbreaking.

Today’s To Dos (as of 11:53 AM)

  1. Fix clean clothes.
  2. Fix laundry.
  3. Scan passports.
  4. Clean out Chuck’s tank.
  5. Work on photos.

The wonders of getting 12 hours of sleep and waking up at 9 am on a Sunday!

Five “Becauses” to Last Night’s “Why” (Part II)

  1. Because you were/are an excellent pusher.
  2. Because you know when a situation calls for maturity, a trait rare among angsty folk. (wink)
  3. Because of the “Holy Shit” epiphanies.
  4. Because I would ditch the pen and bring you to a deserted island instead.
  5. Because I just know. Because this is the truth.

Five “Becauses” to Last Night’s “Why”

  1. Because we are both left handed and have unconventional views on certain issues.
  2. Because we both love the same music, and would pay good money to fly out and watch concerts.
  3. Because you look like Trent Lane came out of the television screen just for me. Except you are more muscular and animated than him.
  4. Because you are funny and can make me laugh hard on the cellphone at 1 in the morning on a weeknight, when I am supposed to be in bed, sleeping.
  5. Because you are smart, witty, and funny (which is worth mentioning twice).

Five Things Deemed Irrelevant Five Years Ago… Until Now

  1. How to hide the short, white strands of hair bursting out of the top of your head, revealing your true age (read: old).
  2. Not having enough money in the bank to sustain you in case a) you lose your job, b) you resign without a new job, and c) you quit your job and fulfill your graduation dream of being a bum for a year.
  3. The realization that apart from owning your own gadgets, you have yet to have “big toys” written under your name (i.e. a house, a car, a fat bank account).
  4. In seven months, you will be celebrating the last year of another decade in your life. What have you done?
  5. An epiphany: The city life is getting too much for me. I think I need a change of scenery. This time, I am no longer scared of being on my own.

Five for a Hump of the Week Wednesday

  1. Successfully negotiating a deadline extension for a project at work.
  2. Getting lost in Makati looking for a way out, only to end up where we started.
  3. Having 20 minutes of much-needed Me Time to mull things over at the neighborhood mall.
  4. Coming home to a good dinner and a quick nap thanks to a welcoming couch.
  5. Waking up to the sound of the doorbell, dogs barking, and a door opening up to the best stress-melting surprise: milk tea drinks, a tuna sandwich, and that night’s Partner-in-Dine (a.k.a. The Love of my Life).
