It’s like a permanent bad mood

Yesterday, I was downloading the movie “The vow”, I know, I’m a little late for that movie but better late than never. So, I decided to watch it. I was also feeling so down that’s why I ended up watching that movie knowing that it has some very emotional and dramatic parts stitched to it.

So while watching those heartwarming scenes, I suddenly felt my self crawling in the hole of despair and I found my self crying so hard. The funny things is that I’m still crying even on those happy scenes and I already look like a solid freak. Everything was so spontaneous and I didn’t even care if a family member will see me with that situation. It was all so candid as my tears were gushing all over my face. Even I can’t understand what’s happening to me.

I guess, it was one of those nights where you have second thoughts about everything and nothing feels right anymore. It’s that moment when you burst out crying on your room and you realize that no one knows how unhappy you are. No one can help you. The times that you want to stop the time or drive away and never ever return. Gah! I’m into so much stress and I’m the one who’s pulling myself into it.

But, thanks to that movie, I was able to let myself to dwell with my feelings and pour it all out.

Maybe I  just need some time to think, relax, and breath.

Like Crazy

So, I was looking for a nice movie just to get me through this night and this movie captured my senses. I’ve always been a self proclaimed hopeless romantic and I adore romantic films. When I saw this, I hurriedly browsed for it’s trailer and watched it on youtube. The music and the fact that Jennifer Lawrence was there, convinced me that I should watch it.

While watching it, I googled again and found a lot of good reviews about the movie. It was about a boy and a girl who fell in love with each other but the twist is that he’s American, she’s British, she came to the USA for her studies, her visa expired, she stayed and it didn’t matter how it could be problematic… then, she’s expulsed and sent back to the UK. That’s the start of their struggle with the heartaches of long-distance relationships.

A simple plot but the movie showed the reality of love, of being in love. Don’t get me wrong fairytales and happy endings are awesome but it’s good to not lose sight of reality. I was actually sobbing and crying while watching some heartbreaking parts. =/

“I thought I understood it, that I could grasp it, but I didn’t, not really. Only the smudgeness of it; the pink-slippered, all-containered, semi-precious eagerness of it. I didn’t realize it would sometimes be more than whole, that the wholeness was a rather luxurious idea. Because it’s the halves that halve you in half. I didn’t know, don’t know, about the in-between bits; the gory bits of you, and the gory bits of me.”

Currently watching this because I can’t find any good zombie film.

Found mix reviews about this movie.

The story is about Paul who  is a U.S. truck driver working in Iraq. After an attack by a group of Iraqis he wakes to find he is buried alive inside a coffin. With only a lighter and a cell phone it’s a race against time to escape this claustrophobic death trap. The movie started showing Ryan Reynolds (Paul) struggling inside the coffin.

Oh, while watching this movie, I can’t help but think of what I would do if I were in his shoes. I would probably just sleep and cry until I die.

If skill could be gained by watching

I’ve always been a fan of many American TV series and just recently, my favorite is Walking Dead. 


What I like about this one is it is based on a comics with the same title. Only few TV series are based on books or comics, so it’s interesting to see the difference from the comics on the TV. Plus the fact that, I’m having weird ideas and starting to fashion a goal that I’ll be able to surpass the Zombie Apocalypse if it will ever happen in reality (Of course, let’s wish that it will not!)

The Walking Dead is centered around Rick Grimes, a small-town police officer, his family, and a number of other survivors who have banded together in order to survive after the world is overrun with zombies or as the walking dead or Walkers. As the series progresses, the characters become more developed, and their personalities shift under the stress of a zombie apocalypse. Fighting growing despair — and sometimes each other — the group searches for a secure location which they can finally call home. In this story, I specifically like Daryl Dixon, ahh he’s such a character.

This August will be the continuation of the series, now on it’s 3rd season. I heard there are new characters that’s coming. I’m so excited.

Going back to my elementary and highschool days, my weakness was Charmed. It was so popular that time that I even created my email address with “charmed”.


It was about the three Halliwell sisters who discovered that they are descendents of a line of female witches. Each has a special ability (stopping time, moving objects, seeing the future), and they can also combine their abilities into the “Power of Three” to fight demons, warlocks, and other evils.I think, Alyssa Milano got really famous because of this series.

Originally, the cast was Shannen Doherty as Prue, Holly Marie Combs as Piper and Alyssa Milano as Phoebe, but then I think they had some problems regarding Shannen so they replaced her with Rose McGowan as Paige. Even though there were some changes, the TV series was still supported by fans and it aired from October 7, 1998, until May 21, 2006. That was for almost 8 years!

Unlike the two TV series which already had so many episodes, my other favorite was Pushing Daisies


I found myself captivated by this pilot than any of the others (suprise!). No matter how whimsical or cutsy the world of PD is, it is somewhere to get away for an hour. There are maybe a handful of shows that have as much fun on screen as this… It is something new, definitely bold, and clever.  Too bad because it was cut short and I was not even able to see what happened to Ned and Chuck.

The story revolves around Ned who possesses the unique talent of being able to bring the dead to life merely by touching them. However, the person may remain alive only for one minute, or else someone else dies for them. A second touch will render the person dead again, unable to be revived. Through his connections with PI Emerson Cod, Ned revives his childhood sweetheart, Chuck. The trio, aided occasionally by Olive Snook, helps solve the mysteries of various murders, whose murderer is often surprising.

What I miss about this is the wit and sweetness of Chuck and Ned, on how they tried to work with their relationship without having to touch each other. Nice huh?

There are other TV series that I really like, maybe next time I’ll write about them. So, for now, here’s my top 3, which includes: witches, zombies and magic.

Finally watched it!


I was finally able to watch The Hunger Games yesterday at Glorietta. I must say that I dig the movie better than the book!

I think, Jennifer Lawrence really fits the role as Katniss Everdeen. She looks so sensitive and naive yet she moves like a I just wish Peeta Mellark was a bit taller but Josh Hutcherson is good too.

District 12, really looked what I imagined it to be. There were some parts in the book which were revised in the movie but nonetheless it still turned out great.

I can’t wait to finish Catching Fire. I’ve been very busy this past few days that I haven’t had the time to continue reading it. I promise I will this week and also on holy week. =)
