I’m still on massive hangovers from 1.) Gay Pride Party shit cray courtesy of the Panty Monsters (blogging pictures soon, haha) and 2.) the humble success of our little bookdrive, The Bookworm Brigade at Moonleaf Maginhawa…
Didn’t really expect to see a lot of new faces. Honestly, I wasn’t confident enough that we got the word out enough, but judging from the crowd and how books piled titles after titles, I think Jonard, Cariza and I had done a pretty good job! Also some of the people who went were really glad and were asking us to collaborate with them on next ones… I haven’t put much thought about it, but it’d be really fun if we can do this again!
I got to let go some of my beloved books my measly high school allowance could buy. Now I have new babies to read! I AM SO HAPPY!
Time to start reading!! I’m just finishing Pictures of Hollis Woods, and a couple magazines, then maybe I’m off to start Lord of the Flies by William Golding… I can’t wait already!

And I am just very grateful because everything was a-ok! That me and my team were able to pull it off. I’m happy about that. Though, really, emotionally I am still… not. But that’s not the point. I guess you can’t have everything (as I always end up saying.) I guess that’s how it goes. Life always has reasons to fuck us all. Life’s pretty damn short though. And why spend it on caring anyway?
Life ‘s too short to even care at all…
One more spoon of cough syrup now…
So I won’t.
I’m… letting go of these babies. I’m already on the brink of crying because of separation issues… and all the asthma I got after unearthing these babies :(
It’s sad, but in one point or another, we all have to say good bye.
But I’m looking forward to getting new titles on Saturday at The Bookworm Brigade! Happening this Saturday already at Moonleaf Maginhawa :)

This song has been on repeat in my BB for a week already. And I just can’t have enough of it… because it’s just so appropriate for what I feel now. I have to thank Cariza for making a mixtape for me, and including this song.
I think this song, kinda speaks for me… when unsung lyrics, unwritten words, undone actions aren’t enough.
A drop in the ocean, a change in the weather
I’m praying that you and me might end up together
It’s like wishing for rain as I stand in the desert
But I’m holding you close than most
’cause you are my heaven
– A Drop in the Ocean, Ron Pope
Anyway. Please help me spread the word for my bookswap event on the 30th! I’m inviting everyone to come and bring your books for swapping and/or donating at Moonleaf Maginhawa this Saturday, June 30!
I’ll blog about the details and some books I’m bringing later! For now, you may find full details of the event here.
And I’ll leave you to another Ron Pope song, haha! Emo-han na!
