Naisip kita ngayong gabi

Sana nasa mabuti kang kalagayan. Na-miss lang kita bigla. Sobrang biglaan lang. Sabi nila pag naramdaman mo raw yung biglaang gusto mo lang umiyak o matawa pag naisip mo ang isang tao, binisita ka nun, nagpaparamdam.

Kung ito man yun, hindi ako natatakot. Napangiti lang ako kakaisip na siguro eto na yung kapehan na pinag usapan natin ilang linggo bago ka nawala…

Salamat sa pagparamdam. Salamat sa mga alaala. Miss pa din kita at iyong mga kwentuhan. Pero alam ko na sa susunod na panahon na maramdaman ko to ulit, ikaw na yun nagpaparamdam.

Series

One nice thing (or maybe it’s a bad thing as well?) about freelancing is that you end up having lots of free time at some random point. Of course, you can make use of it by staying indoors and sleeping off this ungodly heat, or do something else. For my part, I found myself catching up with tv series i wishlisted to see. 

So I’ve been watching some delightfully macabre series for the past few days, not to mention finally getting updated with my current obsession, Game of Thrones (like the rest of mankind) and well, with the rainy cold weather here in the province, it’s frightfully fun.

Penny Dreadful is a showtime series which follows a motley crew of characters based on some very famous figures in the literary world (Frankenstein, Dracula’s Mina, etc.) as they explore the seedy underside of London during the time of Jack the Ripper. It’s fascinating how the story unfolds and while they don’t follow the literary narrative of the books, they were able to weave in the supernatural into the mechanical development of the century. Of course, the cast has also got me hooked — Josh Hartnett, Eva Green and Timothy Dalton are just some of the amazing actors that star in this series.

Another Interesting series i’ve started following is BBC’s In the Flesh . A Zombie drama (yup), it reminds me of the Walking Dead, only instead of people killing zombies off, the zombies get treatment and are re-introduced into society as “rehabilitated” members. It follows a young man who’s been recently de-zombified and given back to his family, and how he and his family deals with him, the situation and trying to go back to “normal life”. Of course, with human nature and all that, there are problems bound to happen.

Blood, drama, supernatural and zombies. What’s not to like?

Plastics are forever

Yup, it’s HOT, folks. It’s amazing how hot it has been for the last few weeks and what’s worse, it will get worse before it gets better. It’s a much needed reminder of how perilous our weather has become, and how unstable our environment’s been. And yes, it is OUR fault for not taking care of the earth.

I don’t mean to sound like a nagger, but it’s the truth, and the truth hurts. After watching this documentary, it pains me to see how the little things we barely notice actually amount to some major changes that affect us all. What remains is not pointing fingers to whoever is responsible (because let’s face it, we all are) but doing something about it, even in our small way.

So yeah, let’s get those reusable bags to work, to the office, to anywhere we go. Those cups and tumblers we buy from coffee chains? Why not bring those everywhere and use those to take out your drinks (and say no to those takeaway cups)? Reusable bags aren’t just for groceries. Say no to those plastic bags if you’re getting less than 5 items from the store.

Note to self: PLASTIC lasts forever, and at the cost of our lives.
