Ordinary People

We're just ordinary people,
We don't know which way to go" -John Legend

I think it's more than just a severe case of last song syndrome, I've been singing this song (actually more like trying) for how many days now and maybe because more than just the fancy piano playing and the awesome vocals of John Legend--is the grand idea that no matter how much we'd like to believe in ourselves, is the fact that there will always be moment when all of us would be just like everyone else--ordinary people.

We are naturally vulnerable, imperfect, emotional, confused and most of the time clueless. Maybe that is why superhuman or superheroes appeal to us that much because we'd love to hold to the slightest thought that we can be super. Not in a sense that we can pick up tanks and throw them away when were mad or fly way above the clouds to escape our normal life but the mere idea of having a sense of control. We are smart and to some extent yes--we can control our life. Some people go around this by having a plan, we make decisions that would affect not just yourself but people around you, we look forward and invest our time to have a better chance in surviving whatever comes our way, but at the end of the day after all the planning and anticipation, just a simple twist of fate and you're as good as dead. On the other end of the spectrum, some people choose to not have a plan. There are those people who gets up in the morning waiting to be just blown away when destiny makes it move. Ironically, this kind of carefree outlook in life can only end in two ways--you either lived a full life with no regrets or the complete opposite.

On the context of this song and love per se is where I believe it's most evident how fragile we really are. It's when we think we are at our best and invincible when we are in fact the weakest. Our happiness completely dependent on the other person that feel the full load of pain when everything falls apart. Six billion people on the planet and yet there is no two individuals that are exactly like the other and people who are in relationship are bound to have their differences exposed one way or the other--fueled with emotions and pride and even love doesn't stand a chance. This song is generally sad however that's not the reason why I liked it. Looking on the positive side, after each fight and storms we are always left with a choice.

We have the choice either to
move on and leave everything behind or to move forward and start over.

Note: This post does not reflect the feeling of the blogger while writing it.(Just in case anybody asks). Though, I can't say I'm happy I am not in any way sad as well. I guess a simple "I'm ok" would say everything. Last song syndrome lang talaga. Medyo matagal na ako walang update kaya eto isang quick post.

Sabi nila, pagdating daw sa mga beauty contest. "There is no such thing as a wrong answer" dahil ang sagot ng kalahok ay base sa kanyang perspektib na hinubog ng kanyang pansariling karanasan, paniniwala at sa mga bagay na kanyang pinahahalagaan. Walang tamang sagot, ngunit madalas may isang sagot, pagsalaysay at pagtugon sa mga katanugan na palaging mangingibaw dahil marahil ang mga salitang ito ay totoo para sa marami at hindi lang sa nasabing kalahok.

I agree, there is no such thing as a wrong answer, but I think there is a Wrong Question.

Ang Q&A portion sa mga beauty contest katulad ng Bb. Pilipinas ay ang pinaka-aabangan ng manonood dahil ito ang bahagi kung saan kadalasan napagdedesisyonan kung sino ang karapat-dapat magwagi. Isang patunay rito ang ingay na ginawa ng pagkapanalo ni Janina San Miguel noong nakaraang taon dahil marami ang nagsabing hindi siya karapat-dapat sa titulo. Ganoon na lang ang ingay ng nangyari kay Janina noong nakaraang taon dahil sa kanyan…


I've been planning to change my blog lay-out for about a month now. In fact, I already started with a semi-flash version of my blog (wow! flash?)which I plan to install once I purchase my own domain. However, today's lay-out change is totally unexpected and just like most unexpected is very frustrating.

I was supposed to change the lay-out of my test blog today but because my brain has been on vacation since April Fool's Day, I didn't really know what I was doing. I stupidly mistaken my actual blog as my test blog, so I wasn't even looking when I clicked on the save new template button. So instead, of working on the test blog. I ended up working on my blog which I really didn't intend to touch in the first place. For the time being, I'll just use this lay-out I made overnight.
