Funny how you messaged my friend to apologize for hurting me. I’ve been thinking about it for a couple of days now and I still cannot wrap my head around how utterly senseless that was.

And how I handle my anger is none of your business. Just like what you feel about her is none of our business and what we think of you (and her) is none of yours.

It is unfortunate that you hurt me. It is more unfortunate that every single move you’ve done after that was unbelievably stupid. What did you expect? That I would curl up in a corner and cry my eyes out? That I would keep quiet? Working in close proximity to me for 7 years should have told you otherwise.

I was never a victim of circumstance and I never will be. THIS is how I deal with my anger… And if you’re biding your time, waiting for the anger to wane, then I guess you’ll be waiting for a really, Really, REALLY long time. Good luck to that.

I’m angry. I’m also vicious and vengeful. You said it yourself… You had it coming. Be a man. Deal with it.

Oh, but you’re not, are you, Old Man?

43 in ’12: Up Close & Personal

Everything I’ve written on this site has been personal… But recently, I’ve decided to open something a little different… Going through the song that made up most of my life. I’ve done 10 in Bits and Pieces. Here’s the second 10.

Enjoy 🙂

The Song: Landslide, Dixie Chicks
The Words: “But time makes you bolder / Children get older / I’m getting older too…”
Why I Love It: I heard this in Glee, when Santana and Britney sang it with Holly Holiday and I had tears running down my face by the first chorus. Originally done by Fleetwood Mac, but I prefer the version of the Dixie Chicks. Elise Testone, Colton Dixon and Phil Phillips also did their version in the most recently concluded season of American Idol. It’s definitely something worth checking out.

The Song: One of These Days, Michelle Branch
The Words: “… And I don’t mind saying / A part of me left with you / One of these days / I won’t be afraid of staying with you / I hope and I pray / Waiting to find a way back to you / ‘Cause that’s where I’m home…”
Why I Love It: It’s a sad song. I am perpetually in love with sad songs. Most of the songs in this playlist always make me cry.
Who It’s For: You, my best friend with whom I eventually fell in love.

The Song: You Can’t Stop the Beat, Cast of Hairspray
The Words: “…So if you don’t like the way I look / Well, I just don’t give a damn!”
Why I Love It: I love running with this song blaring in my ears! It completely brings my average speed up 😛 But I love how completely empowering this song is… And I completely LOVE Hairspray!

The Song: I Can’t Make You Love Me, Bonnie Raitt
The Words: “…Cause I can’t make you love me / If you don’t / I can’t make your heart feel / Something it won’t…”
Why I Love It: I first heard this song on The Voice on Black Saturday. It’s such a sad, sad song… One of my friends in the office said this is the kind of song that you listen to while in front of the fireplace holding a glass of whiskey. He was right.
Who It’s For: You, the Abstract Artist.

The Song: In Demand, Texas
The Words: “…He wrote my name on silver sands / I think you know you’ve lost the love of your life / (You said) I was the best you ever had…”
Why I Love It: Have you seen the video? It was so damn sexy… and you get to see Alan Rickman dancing 🙂
Who It’s For: You, the Voice of Darkness

The Song: Taking Chances, Celine Dion
The Words: “Don’t know much about your life / Don’t know much about your world but / Don’t want to be alone tonight / In this planet we call earth…”
Why I Love It: Although I am a great Celine Dion fan, I kind of stopped following her albums after the release of Falling Into You. Then I heard Lea Michelle sing it on Glee (so many of my songs in this playlist were picked up from watching that show) and I just completely fell in love with the high note that she hit. So I was sitting there and I said, “I gotta learn how to do that, too.” So I did.
Who It’s For: You, Green Eyes.

The Song: Crave, Marc Dorsey
The Words: “…And since you’re gone / My heart won’t behave / It’s your love I still crave…”
Why I Love It: It was Brian McKnight who said the reason why he kept on writing sad songs was because not everyone can relate to happiness, but everyone can relate to being sad. He made a very good point… And worked particularly well for me that I really felt like most of his songs were written especially for me. Crave talks about still being in love with someone who’s no longer with you. I’ve lived that life 10 times now. Apparently, it still hurts the same every single time.
Who It’s For: You, the Son of Adam.

The Song: Strong Enough, Sheryll Crow
The Words: “When I’ve shown you that I just don’t care / When I’m throwing punches in the air / When I’m broken down and I can’t stand / Will you be man enough to be my man?”
Why I Love It: This is for every man who wants to win my heart… But more than that, this particular song brings to mind that one teambuilding in Laguna, when – at that time – it felt like my life fell apart. And we were so far from civilization that I couldn’t run away no matter how much I wanted.
Who It’s For: You, my First Grown-Up Love

The Song: So Close, Jon McLaughlin
The Words: “So close to reaching that famous happy end / Almost believing this one’s not pretend / Now you’re beside me / And look how far we’ve come / So far… We are / So close…”
Why I Love It: It was that scene from Enchanted that sealed the deal for me. When Patrick Dempsey started singing to Amy Adams, tears were running down my face. I remember thinking to myself, “This is what I should have – a grand passion and a great romance.”
Who It’s For: You, Baby Bear… and, more recently, You, Baby.

The Song: Breakaway, Kelly Clarkson
The Words: “… Trying hard to reach out / But when I tried to speak out / Felt like no one could hear me…”
Why I Love It: Considering that I’ve felt like an outsider for most of my life, this song resonated with my soul on so many levels. I can’t get through it without crying.
Who It’s For: Me 🙂

Soul Speaking

I’ve come a long way, haven’t I? But the journey’s not over yet and I hope you continue to travel with me. Till we meet again…



Ciao Bella!

25 in ’12: Sinner

I’ve been watching The Voice for most of the afternoon (which explains the twitter post about Adam Lavigne’s hotness) and heard this song. I seriously do not understand how I could not have known about this song before today.

And on that note, I really did mean what I said about Cee Lo’s creepy persian cat. “It looks at me like it knows my sins from another life.”

*          *          *

Turn down the lights;
Turn down the bed.
Turn down these voices
Inside my head.

Lay down with me;
Tell me no lies.
Just hold me close;
Don’t patronize.

Don’t patronize me.

‘Cuz I can’t make you love me
If you don’t.
You can’t make your heart feel
Something it won’t.
Here in the dark
In these final hours,
I will lay down my heart
And I’ll feel the power;
But you won’t.
No, you won’t.
‘Cuz I can’t make you love me
If you don’t.

I’ll close my eyes,
Then I won’t see
The love you don’t feel
When you’re holding me.

Morning will come,
And I’ll do what’s right;
Just give me till then
To give up this fight.

And I will give up this fight.

‘Cuz I can’t make you love me
If you don’t.
You can’t make your heart feel
Something it won’t.
Here in the dark
In these final hours,
I will lay down my heart
And I’ll feel the power;
But you won’t.
No, you won’t.
‘Cuz I can’t make you love me
If you don’t.

I Can’t Make You Love Me
Bonnie Raitt



Blessed Be…

11 in ’12: Damian

In the last thirty-six hours, I have been watching episodes of The Glee Project. I’ve been trying to stretch it – trying to make it last as long as possible – but, finally, as I’m beginning to write this entry, Alex, Lindsay, Damian and Samuel are singing their last Last Chance Performances.

Before I move on, a little background. I have never, EVER been interested in The Glee Project in the past. During its run, I was able to catch part of an episode – the one where Emily gets cut – and the only thing that stuck in my head was Cameron and his rendition of Your Song. And then I went on to becoming uninterested all over again.

Then Rory Flanagan showed up in Glee. And then nine episodes later, Joe Hart appeared. Needless to say, suddenly, I was interested.

Enter The Glee Project.

In the course of 10 episodes, I have fallen in like, fallen in love, was fascinated and appalled by various characters (I’m not going to spend time describing the show. If you need this, however, go here. Or here.). Let’s take a look, shall we?

Here are the ones that made me smile time and time again…

Cameron
For me, he was the first person who made an impression. Me catching the episode where he sang Your Song for his Last Chance Performance didn’t hurt either. Cameron is awkward… and geeky… and a little coordinated. But something does burst out of him during his performances. And I’ve always had a thing for people who don’t fit in.

He’s also the only person who left the competition out of his own volition. I can’t find fault in this because he left for the right reasons – but I can’t help but feel the void that his departure left behind. If he had stayed on, he probably would have made it all the way to the top. One good thing did come out of his leaving, though – that was when Damian started getting better.

Marissa
There’s something about this girl that makes me want to look at her. I have a feeling it’s her hair. I look at her and I think of the song Jolene.

On the episode “Vulnerability”, she decided to change her sign in the middle of the video shoot. From saying “flawed” it was changed to “Anorexic”. I don’t think I appreciated her more than I did at that particular moment.

And, of course, there was that kiss with Samuel during “Don’t You Want Me?”

Hanna
Hanna is sweetheart. She’s funny and insecure and just so… real. Although I never really rooted for her to win (not like Cameron who was just such a strong contender since the beginning), she was one of those people that I appreciated because she was so sincere.

But I didn’t like everyone…

Alex
There’s no denying that Alex was one talented dude/dudette. When he finished singing “And I’m Telling You I’m Not Going”, I wanted to jump off the bed and clap. The thing that gets to me when it comes to Alex is that I kind of got the impression that he like to dish it, but he can’t take it.

He did soften up towards the end of the competition and seemed to have a real moment at one point, but it wasn’t enough to make me want to want him to win.

But more than Alex, there was…

Lindsay
I hated Lindsay.

True, she’s overflowing with talent, but I felt that the title that she really deserved was that of Drama Queen. She’s very seldom overtly snarky – except for that one time with Elis – but her “confession” shots say so much more about her than anything else.

Then there’s the limitless need of being the best. When Marissa was asked to kiss Samuel in “Don’t You Want Me?”, she just had to go off and kiss Cameron. When Alex broke down and cried during his session with Nikki, she just had to burst into tears too.

With Rachel Barry, it was kind of annoying (remember when she decided to run against Kurt for Senior Class President?) but at least she redeemed herself in the end. For Lindsay… well, let’s just say that the show’s over and my opinion of her hasn’t changed.

And then there were those who sparked my interest in the first place…

Samuel
This guy has the “It Factor” oozing from every inch of his body. To be honest, I started watching The Glee Project because of him and his appearance in “Heart”. I mean, the guy is HOT. You have to be blind not to see that.

I’m such a sucker for the rocker/tortured artist type. And Samuel fell right into this category.

Damian
And then there was Damian. I’d have to agree with what Nikki told him before his final performance – “You’re not the strongest singer. You’re not the strongest actor. You’re not the strongest dancer.”

There is something about this kid that I simply cannot explain. The first time he showed up in Glee, he wasn’t a standout. That’s why I never took interest. But in the show…

In the course of watching episode after episode of The Glee Project, I realized that I always start out looking for Samuel.

But I can’t take my eyes off Damian.

That Other World I Live In (92/365)

I spent most of Sunday watching old One Tree Hill episodes.

By “With Tired Eyes, Tired Minds, Tired Souls, We Slept”, my pillow was wet with tears.


Yes, I have issues.  But this is my world.


Live in it if you dare.


Ciao Bella!

One (89/365)

At this moment there are 6 billion, 4 hundred 70 million, 8 hundred 18 thousand, 6 hundred 71 people in the world.

Some are running scared.
Some are coming home.
Some tell lies to make it through the day.
Others are just not facing the truth.
Some are evil men at war with good.
And some are good, struggling with evil.

Six billion people in the world.
Six billion souls.  

And sometimes, all you need is one.

(Peyton Sawyer’s voice over)
One Tree Hill – Season 3, Episode 2

Because I Can’t Let It Go (77/365)

Still watching One Tree Hill season 1.

Brooke got Lucas drunk and they ended up making out in an alley somewhere.  And then he comes home with a tattoo (the chinese symbol for “fun”).

God, Lucas is an idiot.

*          *         *

On a rather unrelated note…

I’m  starting a new series – NBC’s Grimm.  Like Once Upon a Time, the show is loosely based on various characters found in fairytales.  Once Upon a Time, however, takes on a more magical, Charmed feel, while Grimm is something of an action, Buffy the Vampire Slayer thing.  Both have proven to be interesting.

Grimm begins its first episode with a girl going out for a run (and I’m taking this as a sign that I should go jogging today.  Due to recent events, I’ve missed out on one).  I had a rather strange moment, finding myself thinking that the Eurythmics’ Sweet Dreams would be a good song to run to.  Anyway, so this girl goes running on a trail in the woods.  Somewhere along the way, she notices a little figurine on a piece of fallen wood (it looked like Gretel, if you ask me).  She stops and picks it up and then suddenly this black furry blur comes out of nowhere and drags her off-screen.  We then hear her screams and, at this point, it would be appropriate to assume that she was dead.

Now Buffy the Vampire Slayer held my interest for so many years – up until that very, very disappointing finale – so it’s very possible that I may get hooked on this show.  Imagine CSI crossed with Buffy the Vampire Slayer without Nicholas Brandon as a comic relief.

I guess, for now, it’s wait and see for me.


 

Blessed Be…
