When I was a kid, maybe around eight or ten years old then, I would go to the cousins’ place to play with them. One time, I went there and I played with their Game ‘N Watch. You remember that small gadget of the past that had so many kinds of games in it?
I was so envious of that so when I got to play it, I was ecstatic!
While playing it, I didn’t know I dislodged the battery at the back. Those batteries were the small round ones that cost a fortune back then. I didn’t know where it went and the guilty me dreaded getting the ire of my cousins and my aunt. So I immediately gave back the Game ‘N Watch and went home.
I was already napping when I woke up and heard my aunt angrily asking for me. My mom woke me up asking me where I put the batteries but, of course, I denied it. Unfortunately, I was the last one to play it and my cousins saw me. I didn’t know what my mom did but she asked me to go back to sleep and she dealt with my aunt after.
She probably paid off those darn batteries!
I just suddenly remembered that day when I saw a Facebook game like the one I played in that Game ‘N Watch that day.
Whenever I visit my loved ones’ grave, I am reminded of those times when every little thing in our lives was so harder than it is now. When there’s always little left for the other stuff. When we were left to ask help from relatives and friends all the time. I hated that time!
But just as the fishes are, I tended to adapt and just leave everything to the passing of time. And it all passed. I would like to think we are all in a better place now.
When I was a little kid, my mom used to bring me with her to the cinema house. One of the movies I remember watching was Over The Top of Sylvester Stallone. It’s about a “about a long haul truck driver who tries to win back his alienated son while becoming a champion arm wrestler”.
I just remember the movie among the many movies my mom and I have watched because for one, the moviehouse was packed. I remember my mom and I sitting on the steps of the moviehouse throughout the whole viewing. And then it was a movie that made me cry.
Who am I talking about in the title of this entry?
That would be me! *takes a bow*
When I was younger, I used to love buying those songhits. It’s like thin, mini-magazines containing song lyrics and guitar chords. I used to own quite a number of it back in high school. I loved the songs of the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s. Believe me, if there was a chance I join a contest where the contestants would guess the lyrics of a song, I’d win it hands down!
Unfortunately, in college, I stopped with the song lyrics. I became more interested in movies and thick novels. I can still guess the lyrics of old songs but with the newer ones…
I saw this girl that I used to dislike so much because of a guy. I saw her in Facebook where she left a comment in the guy’s post. I was surprised to see her in a social networking site considering she’s not very sociable back in high school.
These little reminiscences make me realize how petty I was when I was younger. How something trivial could control my life. How something as silly as a getting a boy’s attention could cost you a potential friend. Not that I think we’d make good friends but who knows, right? She could be a nice person and all that.
I’ve burned bridges one time too many. And half of it was really my fault. I admit as much. Along the way, I realized that attaching myself to persons I don’t really know is bad. It was bad and it happened too many times in the past.
I try not to be too trusting anymore. It was my downfall and it will continue to be my downfall if I don’t watch out.
Burning bridges is bad. I don’t get to return to places I’ve been in, or meet up with people I was with. But when trust becomes an issue, you cannot help but hear the ripping of the bond you once formed with the person.
It becomes inevitable when trust is no longer there.
I first read of Twilight from another blogger’s blog. I searched the book, curious. When I found out what the story was, I immediately asked an ebook from my friends. Then I read it for 1 and 1/2 days!
I guess you now know what came of it. This post is a testament.
I am in love with Edward Cullen!
