Watermelon kisses

25 September 2012

I still haven't completely escaped the somber state I found myself in since last week, but thankfully things are looking a little brighter these days thanks to friends and work. I didn't really notice days passing by until I realized today is already the 25th and this is only my 11th(!!!) post whereas looking at my blog archives I used to average at least 20 posts a month. SeptemBLUR, indeed! Still, my daily page views remain consistent no matter how infrequently I update these days, so thank you for visiting regularly :)

Tonight I will go to a special advanced screening of The Perks of Being a Wallflower movie --- I chose this over a big bash to celebrate the launch of a new shoe collection by a renowned local fashion designer even though I know I can catch the movie any other day. I'm not really fond of night-outs you see, and I'm just not in the mood to dress up and socialize. I say, give me a book or a movie any day and I'll be happy.

Those who've read the book know that Charlie is fond of mixtapes, so in honor of Charlie and Sam and Patrick, I made a mixtape for you :)


I can never live in a world without music. These are some songs that make me smile and I hope they will have the same effect on you. Shake It Out and It's Time sound like perfect anthems, like songs that can rouse and encourage you, and even help you wake up on the right side of the bed. I'm not a The Wanted fan but The Warblers' rendition of Glad You Came in Glee gave me goosebumps! Boyce Avenue's What Makes You Beautiful, on the other hand, melted my heart hee. Also, this is weird but whenever I'm sad I listen to Won't Go Home Without You because it never fails to cheer me up. I love Stacie Orrico and I miss her so I have to include one of her songs, while With a Smile makes me nostalgic and brings me back to happy days when I was younger and everything was simpler. Hope these made you smile, too.

Oh yeah, I named it watermelon kisses because I've always loved the word watermelon and how it easily rolls off your tongue. Say it: Watermelon. Watermelon. I love it. Also kisses, because aside from hugs, what in the world could be better than kisses?

"Maybe it's good to put things in perspective, but sometimes,
I think that the only perspective is to really be there.
Because it's okay to feel things. I was really there.
And that was enough to make me feel infinite.
I feel infinite."
- The Perks of Being a Wallflower

What's not to love about watermelon???  I'm glad you're feeling a little better.  I just realized I've only posted twice this month.  I need to correct that because "my universe will never be the same" thanks to blogging!  :)
