Eyes wide open.
All will be better tomorrow.
365 days ago, I decided to write here to release some pressure.
"I know I shouldn't hang around the college when I'm through at the lab, but seeing the young men and women going back and forth carrying books and hearing them talk about all the things they're learning in their classes excites me."
“Intelligence is one of the the greatest human gifts. But all too often, a search for knowledge drives out the search for love. This is something else I've discovered for myself very recently. I present it to you as a hypothesis: Intelligence without the ability to give and receive affection leads to moral breakdown, to neurosis, and possibly even psychosis. And I say that the mind absorbed in and involved in itself as a self-centered end, to the exclusion of human relationships, can only lead to violence and pain.”
“Intelligence and education that hasn't been tempered by human affection isn't worth a damn.”
“The only question now is: How much can I hang on to?”
“Because I want to see. I've got to know what's going to happen while I'm still enough in control to be able to do something about it.”
“I don’t know what’s worse: to not know what you are and be happy, or to become what you've always wanted to be, and feel alone.”
Keep busy and move.
Song for the day: Until We Meet Again by Tonik Ensemble
Listening to Yaarrohs
Sometimes it helps to distance yourself from where you belong. Had to go far away to look closer into my self.
It's sun down but my day ain't over.
Edith Piaf - Non, je ne regrette rien
To set the mood I have here tracks from C R W N. His music sets a really subtle intimate mood.
More of the intimacy with the environment and the things around. Not just towards people. A little like how Tycho or maybe Spazzkid. or Stwo. or maybe more of Speak.
Here we have a screenful of colors,
With smiling made up faces,
Shining seamless wears,
And synchronized body movements.
On cue one - entrance clap,
Unending friendly hellos.
On cue two - lined up glass bottles,
Unending beer refills.
On cue three - pure white dust,
Unending boom of invincibility.
Follow banal patterns -
Pixels scattered and checkered.
Beating lines rising high and low.
Non-stop blinking boxes.
Eyes closed and then blackness.
Whistling in the dark.
"We promise you,
You'll be all better."
Today's playlist: CAZZETTE and Knife Party
It's such a gratifying feeling to know that someone else in this world loves you unconditionally and would be so horrified to live without you. I can't help but be happy.
The simple words and actions, the small deeds that someone else does to tell you that you are cherished and loved makes the heart overflow with joy.
"...it seemed that his heart would be shaken out of his body so great was its ecstasy."
I wish everyone to feel the same.

Honest title from Damned by Chuck Palahniuk
Happy quote from Call of the Wild by Jack London
I am as busy as the rain clouds today. So many people and things to rain on today. I'll just dance through the night until all work is over.
No dream can last forever,
unless this chase becomes a fever,
Not a sickness, more of a disease.
A false sense that we can do things with ease,
A false thought of gleeful aspirations,
A false hope on getting there with no altercations.
Nothing can be done in a breeze,
You're there in an indefinite freeze,
While others progress in leaps and bounds.
Time to sleep on cold ground.
Envy tastes so bitter on the tongue
Carry on and come back in a bang.
Get up, you can't wait much to long

Some Herman Hesse on the title
Some EchoDroides to listen to
I have nothing on my mind.
No worries. No skeptics. Just fresh rainy season air.
It's a dark and rainy day here in Manila. It's all cool and cold.
I heard a storm is coming over again. Be safe everyone!
