An attempt at conversation

I haven't been talking much, have I?

In the past few months, I saw myself careening through the stress of final exams. In retrospect, I don't think I've ever studied that hard and that long. I'm honestly amazed at myself--at how I woke up everyday at 8:30 AM and never stopped studying until it was time to sleep.

But what's even more amazing is how my priorities gradually shifted. In the early months of the semester I saw myself dating around, trying my luck on finding a partner that could possibly replace the last. And then, just like that, I stopped.

I stopped trying not to be alone. Stopped caring that my ex found a replacement less than a week after we broke up. Stopped caring about physical and emotional imperfections that he would carelessly point out every now and then. I just stopped. And thank God I did.


So what have I been up to lately? Aside from reading books, working, and spending time with my family in what little free time I have, I also watch movies. Just the other day I watched there was a filmfest in Greenbelt. I watched with my sister, and ended up getting free tickets to this film:

The film portrays a modern Italian guy's attempt at making his family understand homosexuality. It's so much more than that, of course, so you'll have to go find a copy of the film yourself. What I can say is that it's a great film that personally made me laugh and realize a lot of things.

So I guess I'll see you around then?

  1. There's a season for everything. A time to study, a time to work, a time to love, a time to grieve, a time to party.

    I think as we go through the changes in our lives, as we grow older we are able to identify the shifts in these seasons. To recognize that something has ended, or that something has begun.

    I hope I'm making sense here. =) I talked back Arwind.
