"Ich glaube, man sollte überhaupt nur solche Bücher lesen, die einen beißen und stechen. Wenn das Buch, das wir lesen, uns nicht mit einem Faustschlag auf den Schädel weckt, wozu lesen wir dann das Buch? Damit es uns glücklich macht, wie Du schreibst? Mein Gott, glücklich wären wir eben auch, wenn wir keine Bücher hätten, und solche Bücher, die uns glücklich machen, könnten wir zur Not selber schreiben. Wir brauchen aber die Bücher, die auf uns wirken wie ein Unglück, das uns sehr schmerzt, wie der Tod eines, den wir lieber hatten als uns, wie wenn wir in Wälder verstoßen würden, von allen Menschen weg, wie ein Selbstmord, ein Buch muß die Axt sein für das gefrorene Meer in uns. Das glaube ich."

Franz Kafka

translation:‘I think we ought to read only books that bite and sting us. If the book we are reading doesn’t shake us awake like a blow on the skull, why bother reading it in the first place? So that it can make us happy, as you put it? Good God, we’d be just as happy if we had no books at all; books that make us happy we could, at a pinch, also write ourselves. What we need are books that hit us like a most painful misfortune, like the death of someone we loved more than we love ourselves, that make us feel as though we had been banished to the woods, far from any human presence, like a suicide. A book must be the axe for the frozen sea within us. That is what I believe.’

LIFE LATELY // An August Recap

(1) Ruby Rose and I during one coffee break trying to convince ourselves that we are normal.  We do not lack sleep.  We are not gonna go batshit insane.  We are okay. (:);&&(@($,!,” HAHAHAHA

(2) Me and Meann while having our very own, private “Saturday Night Live” and smiling so wide because of too much happiness.  

(3) “Some people just normally look like they haven’t slept in weeks.  I am one of those people.”  😂😂😂

(4) Random cheap thrills that turn out to be a best buy after you start using them and they prove their quality to you during a really bad weather outside.  (i.e. This Php 400 peso worth Parisian platforms)

(4) FIRE AWAY!  🔫

(5) LANCÔME for me, LANVIN for Meann - because we deserve nothing but the best.

(6) Feeling so happy I think I could fly. ❤️❤️❤️

(7) Still Meann & I, realizing how bad our choices in the past have been and how worse they’ve become, literally and figuratively.  How disgusting, dirty and desperate they turned out to be.  We used to say we have no regrets, but then we actually do have some choices we wish to undo, people we wish to unmeet and dates we wish to erase. Hahaha I know you’re reading this and I know you’re laughing.  Text me. @creeklilac lol 

(8) Flew a hundred feet down to our building’s ground floor when I realized that I was about to miss a BIG REUNION with my friends.   Thank Gao for that reminder.  Hahaha

Last week’s FRISKY FRIDAY a.k.a. THE GREAT ESCAPE with my CF

Happy to have capped the week off with Tequila and the awesome company of CF last Friday at Tipsy Pig. I haven’t been with them for quite some time and I owe them BIG for all the “G” that I missed.  LOL  Plus the bonus appearance of my college bud Miguel Flores in the middle of the party - it was one hell of a night! 

I had to come home before the crack of dawn because I needed to drive early the next day for another escape.

Thanks CF for another great night.  I’ve missed you guys!  I promise to free up Friday night of any work and be present at our G!

Flying kisses!

SUPER SATURDAY REUNION WITH FRIENDS-TURNED-FAMILY

The only people in this entire planet not related to me (aside from Kim and Amaine) that I would fight sleepiness for, cancel appointments for, and regardless what I look like or what I bring or don’t bring to the table, don’t really matter as long as I show up - would welcome me with big warm hugs, would rush to my side even at 3 in the morning emergency or no emergency, would tell me “wag ka na maligo punta ka na dito” and would still convince me to sleepover, won’t let me spend even a single peso as long as they have me with them they think it’s already too much, have seen me at my worst, at my most thrashed state and had given me a bath and put me to sleep… Only my parents/ nurse have done that for me when I’m sick. People who cracks me up like a sister and brother does and scolds me like a parent does. These people are my family. Or I think, maybe even more.

My dad said “You don’t meet people like that all the time. Treasure them. Invite them over to our house, Mama will cook, you can play loud music and you can all party as much as you want.”

YKNOWITTTTTTTTTT!!!!!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
