starting over

last year (yes, am still talking about last year. call me nostalgic yeah?),  several things happened that made me doubt the order of things.

my neighbor closet gay friend broke up with his live-in bf of 2yrs and got committed to a girl classmate from post-grad, with plans of getting married even. he apologized to me because he said, "hindi ko kayang pangatawanan ang pagiging ganito. gusto ko magkapamilya... blah..blah..." fine. i did argue that gays can have families too. anyway. a college student neighbor of ours again whom as a young kid already showed his swag as a young gay, recently had himself a gf too! and has been broadcasting to the fb world of their every date/activity as a couple (which made me quickly look for the unsubscribe feature). AND then last December, few days before Christmas, an ex-colleague (female) of mine who used to have gf of 4-6yrs and professed how they are destined for each other, just got married. with a guy. ugh. my world turned upside down and felt apocalyptic already. these signs freaked me out. good thing a lez friend of mine got legally married with her partner of 10yrs. suddenly, the world is right and i feel good.

many things change, from the physical to the emotional to sexual up to spiritual. it can't be helped. but at the very core of these changes one thing doesn't and continues to be universal, it's love. we all love. whether it's from the bottom of our hearts, at the top of our lungs, head over feet/heels, or from the hypothalamus, we love.

and amid the pain, disappointments, it still feels good to love. tirelessly. we may pause, and it's okay. then resume, start anew. just like this new year of starting over.

so to keep the love alive and the good vibes going, let me share you this very special video that is guaranteed to make you sigh, cry, sniff, hope, love. please have your tissues/hanky ready.

I remember when I met with my childhood friend who've just come home after working in Thailand for a couple of years. She was very very girly. She showed me some sexy photos of herself in a corset and some sexy lingerie and told me just how crazy she was about her current bf.

I felt like there's something very very wrong in my world. It's like someone turned my world upside down or i was in a different dimension. I remember how she was very "gwapo" and adored by most of the girls in our teens. Something was wrong that very moment. But eventually, you just have to accept it and get used to it.

funny though,, after 9 years of not liking a guy.. i woke up one day and realize that i liked (yes past tense na) my officemate (guy)... and i sort of "flirted" w/ another guy officemate..

whats weird lang kase parang phase lang sya saken.. the thing that i felt for guys.. it didnt last long..

(just sharing).. nice post btw.. :)
