A Cinderella Story: Once Upon a Song
My favorite scenes <3
Luke: Katy, are you wearing a door mat?
Katie: Y-yes. Welcome.
Luke: Oh thank you.
Katie: The truth. My step brother locked me outside the house. Naked.
Luke: Oh, sorry. You should, you should take my jacket.
Katie: Thanks. Now the pants.
Katie: *Looked at the pants*
Luke: *Zipping off his pants*
Katie: I’m kidding.
Luke: Oh, you got me.*All smiles*
Katie: *sings* I can see it from the spark in your eyes. You believe in all the things you deny. You wanna fly and leave your worries behind, don’t you, don’t you. Well now I’m knocking at your front door. If you’re looking for the right cure, I’m still a little bit unsure.
Luke: Okay now take off that veil.
Katie: *sings* You can never tell where this might go.
Luke: Okay, You are blowing my mind. You have to show me who you are.
Katie: Don’t break my heart before I give it to you.
Don’t tell me no before I ask you too.
Don’t say it doesn’t fit before you try it on
There’s too much to lose to be wrong
And it feels like that something’s here
But I wanna see it before it disappears
And if there’s something real between me and you
Or are we both open too
All these possibilities
So many little possibilities
Katie: Victor, I thought you hated me.
Victor: Are you an idiot? You’re the only person who knows my birthday. The only one who says good night to me. The only one who makes me mac and cheese. You’re annoying and ugly but I sort of love you.
Katie: I sort of love you too. But promise me you won’t do anything.
Katie: No! No, you gotta get out of here now.
Luke: You’re about to sing for Bev. Why are you about to sing for Bev?
Katie: She can’t sing.
Luke: It was your voice the whole time. Bev never sang at all.
Katie:She better sing for a whole bunch of people. Now please.
Luke: And on that day, that was you.
NP: Give Me Love
As I was wandering again on the web, listening to song covers of my ever #TheVoicePh crush, Japs Mendoza, reading blog of the ever witty and humorous Dexter News, scanning my awesome dashboard, reading my 2013 year review on Facebook, I knew I need to blog.
My last night was a bit emotional due to some friendship dilemma. So right after my video editing of my little sister’s project, I felt no sleeping at all. I watched movies until 3 am, which is not so so me. I love having movie marathon overnight with my dearest friends, but not with myself alone. But I did it.
Good thing, my parents didn’t wake me up early in the morning. My father dared to do so, but having the odds in my favor, nanay told him not to try, at least even just for this day, kasi akala niya napuyat ako sa paggawa ng project ni Jannah. My bad. Haha.
I woke up by 9 am and here I am. No classes today. I’m thinking of…
…designing my blog page today since the yesterday’s seminar, which was successfully organized by my ever loved CREATICOM org and all glory be to God for that, inspired me to “ADD VALUE” in my blog,
…discover new songs and design typography of my old loved songs,
…have my phone files backed up before I bring it to a repair shop, and
…have some good reads of Looking for Alaska today since I think I need to search for A Great Perhaps too.
"Over time you’ll realize who you really are and what you really deserve. You’ll learn not to settle for someone and to not let anyone take advantage of you. If only you could realize this before you get hurt."
Will Not Care
I wanna write a novel, have my life revolve around it and produce a piece that will reflect everybody’s foolish choices and empty hopes. I wanna hurt people by letting them see reality and not what they just wanna see.
I wanna write about how I don’t freaking care if I’m such a disappointment to people because I don’t exist just to live up their expectations. I don’t care if I’m always a failure to anybody because I don’t care about them. I don’t care whether I’ll be graded or not because grades won’t define me either. I’m tired of feeling bothered by not keeping to anybody’s expectations. I’m doing my job and people should be fine with that.
I’m gonna write, do my thing and won’t care if I’ll be a disappointment to anybody. I should’ve done this before, reevaluate my values and drop everything off that only causes me stress and are definitely pointless. So I’m gonna do my thing and won’t live up to anybody’s expectations except God because, come on, He’s God.
I wanna go to Starbucks with Cathee or Claud or Roselle or Kathreen and share them my every thought about people whom they don’t personally know and I personally hate. I wanna have my sticker and fill my card, then I can finally avail my planner.
By and large, the predominant buy-in of our culture is that a better version of us is going to somehow satisfy our souls. “If I could just make me better, I’ll be a happier person. I’ll have more joy. There will be more meaning in my life. I just need to be a better person than I am now.” Our money, our time, our energy will always be pushed into, “I have to be a better version of me.”
At nearly 40 years old now, let me just lay this before you. You will always be disappointing to you. You will always. It doesn’t matter how you transform. You will not be able to fix you, because you’re actually the problem. If you’re broken, any trying to put together of brokenness by what is broken only breaks it all the more. That’s one of the crooked paths.
Another one that is wildly popular is others. We begin to seek others to validate us, to speak highly of us. We need them, whether they are our bosses or our spouses or those who work for us or our friends. We just need them to tell us we have value. We put an unfair, sinful, almost wicked expectation on them to satisfy a longing in our hearts that they simply cannot satisfy. Why? Human beings make crummy gods. They really do."
