Day 02- Favorite Movie: Serendipity
I kind of forgot about the Tumblr challenge so I'll catch up as much as I can. This isn't my only favorite movie, but Serendipity is one movie I can watch a hundred times and still enjoy it like I've never seen it before.
Here are a few good dialogues from the move:
Sara: You don't have to understand. You just have to have faith.
Jonathan: Faith in what?
Dean: Jonathan Trager, prominent television producer for ESPN, died last night from complications of losing his soul mate and his fiancee. He was 35 years old. Soft-spoken and obsessive, Trager never looked the part of a hopeless romantic. But, in the final days of his life, he revealed an unknown side of his psyche. This hidden quasi-Jungian persona surfaced during the Agatha Christie-like pursuit of his long reputed soul mate, a woman whom he only spent a few precious hours with. Sadly, the protracted search ended late Saturday night in complete and utter failure. Yet even in certain defeat, the courageous Trager secretly clung to the belief that life is not merely a series of meaningless accidents or coincidences. Uh-uh. But rather, its a tapestry of events that culminate in an exquisite, sublime plan. Asked about the loss of his dear friend, Dean Kansky, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author and executive editor of the New York Times, described Jonathan as a changed man in the last days of his life. "Things were clearer for him," Kansky noted. Ultimately Jonathan concluded that if we are to live life in harmony with the universe, we must all possess a powerful faith in what the ancients used to call "fatum", what we currently refer to as destiny.

the comfort behind the struggle
For quite a while now, I’ve been carrying this heavy cloud of wanting to be somewhere else, with someone else, and even wanting to be entirely someone else. I got so caught up in this cruel phase of jealousy, loss and restraint that I’ve carelessly ignored how blessed and loved I already am. I expected the world from one, but forgot that I already shared my world with many. I...

slaughter somber sally
I think I’m getting depressed. I used to smile and be amused at the littlest things, now I tend to force smiles and loose interest in everyday details I used to love being around company, I still do but I also feel like I tend to be recluse and would rather be left to my own thoughts and imagination. I used to have so much to say….to anyone and everyone, now I tend to run out of...

This article is something I can somewhat relate to. Like the author said, it’s not that I’m ditching my old ones, but it really sucks that my BFFs are far away in Seattle, Virginia, Sydney and Baguio. Of course I know that I can count on them despite the distance and I really do love the friends that I have here in the Bay, but sometimes, just sometimes, I feel like I’m living...
Sometimes I feel like I’m my boss’ burden. No matter how much I slave, how many extra hours I work, or how much I disconnect from the rest of the world to keep up with her……I always feel short. Don’t get me wrong, I get things done. Not always on her clock (which often is 5 minutes before she assigns something), but as thoroughly cohesive as I can. More often than...

What a bum weekend! I am so frustrated and mad at myself! I’ve been very careful with my money, only to loose it so carelessly.

Can-asian vs. Amer-asian →
An interesting article on multicultualism and the difference between Asian Canadians and Asian Americans. I never thought there would be a big difference, and I hope I understood right, but apparently Canada has embraced multiculturalism as an economic asset while America still sees it as a liability. Not sure how much I like that idea….

welcome, sunshiney NEW day
I woke up in an incredibly optimistic mood today. I have a huge paper swamp of things to do, several boring meetings to sit in, an appointment to donate blood, a few more errands to do after work, and even more unsettled questions……………..but you know what?!? F all that!!!!!! Today is a NEW day, and I’m about to make the most of it!

“The part about journalism we can’t afford to loose is the part that goes about the world and tells you about things that nobody is telling you.” Gail Collins Every time I read a blog or news article online, a huge part of me still wonders how much of it is accurate and how much of it can really be counted as a thorough depiction of knowledge and understanding of the topic....
