A Good Question


I have not dared to even answer this question, mainly because a million different ideas came to mind.  Seriously, a million different ideas of varying proportions and fluctuating priorities.  But then it’s a pretty good one.  This should be the kind of questioning you can ask at a pageant to actually get intriguing results.  At least, for me.

So when I get my answer, I’ll let you know.  What’s yours?

Can you finish this sentence?

I cannot wait to tell you all about the Big Bang Bazaar that happened this weekend (and by all, I mean the good, the bad and the ugly!), but for now, I just want to know what you think.

If it’s not evident yet, I am a romantic.  Hopeless sometimes, but I think most of the time hopeful.  I like to think that everything has a purpose and that we were brought to where we are for a reason.  But that doesn’t necessarily mean I surrender everything to fate.  Some things, I make happen still.  Or at least I’d like to think so.

And some things just come to me.  I like imagining things, and sometimes, it almost feels like I willed myself to make something happen.  Like I thought about it too much that it had no other choice to be here.  Like the night I met Dylan.  I said, I miss feeling something powerful.  And when I first met Dylan, I was just superbly annoyed.  Like amazingly annoyed for no reason whatsoever.  The rest, as they say, is history.

So how about you?  Do you still remember the times when it felt like you willed something to happen?

How about you finish this sentence for me then? :)  It doesn’t have to be addressed to the night you met me; I don’t love myself that much (haha).  Think of the night you met this person and see if you willed this person to be in your life.  What were you thinking then?  What were you doing?  Do you think fate brought you there?  Was it a coincidence?  Was it purposeful?  Or was it a mere happenstance?

Let’s make this your dead letter. :)

Question of the week

What is your favorite song of all time?

I think that’s a pretty difficult question, being a fan of so many artists.  I think most of my friends would no even know the asnwer to this.  Most of them would complain that I have too many weird tastes so I guess it’s better for me to have a permanent playlist in mind.

I love European pop and rock, and a lot of indie artists.  I feel like I’m doing some sense of injustice each time I don’t defend the quality and the depth of their lyrics because in all honesty, most of their words sink to the very core.  People just fail to acknowledge it, probably because they’ve gotten so used to the pop sound and the bandwagon that they just automatically reject whatever it is that’s new to their ear.  Or maybe that’s just me being judgmentsl.

However, I do have a list of my favorite lyrics.  Once revealed, everyone would know the romantic that I am.  What the hell, it’s bound to show anyway.

  • Maps (Yeah Yeah Yeahs):  Wait / They don’t love you like I love you
  •  Shiver (Coldplay):  So I looked at your direction / But you paid me no attention
  • The Scientist (Coldplay):  Oh take me back to the start
  • With or Without You (U2):  She left me with / Nothing to win / And nothing left to lose
  • Northern Downpour (Panic at The Disco):  Hey moon / Please forget to fall down
  • That I Would Be Good (Alanis Morissette):  That I would be good / Even if I lost sanity
  • Congratulations (Blue October):  My words, they don’t come out right / But I’m trying to say I’m happy for you

And of course, I have to cite something from John Mayer:

Should have smiled in that picture / If that’s the last that I’ll see of you

 So far, that’s it.  I know I’m eventually adding more to this list so expect me to answer this question again.  :)
