nunuuu: (hanger)
After having dinner at Greenbelt with some college buds, I headed to Republiq for Eli's party. (GOD, IT'S THE YEAR WE'RE ALL TURNING 23. LE GASP.)

To put it simply, it was so much chaos and so much fun! I don't know if it's still strictly counted as "acting our age" but whatever, we're work hard, party harder kind of people anyway. High school friends are the bomb, and will be forever. Probably except for the part where they foist seven shots on me even BEFORE I put down my bag. Fucking alcoholics. HAHA

I SHOULD HAVE NEVER STARTED ON THAT TEQUILA

"Check, please," says birthday girl. (EH MAGKANO BA ANG PRESYO PARA PAGAPANGIN ANG MGA KAIBIGAN?)

...and that was the last picture where I looked decent. I actually ended up puking in the garage lobby of Resort's World, lol. Embarrassing shit that I can't remember! How convenient, yes? Haven't been that wasted in so long! Goddamn Patron, bakit naman kasi ganyan. HAHA. Anyway, happy birthday again, my soul sister! For you I will brave the seven seas and happily barf on my pretty dress! (Gumising ako na amoy suka at may eyeshadow pa, okay! Mahal talaga kita!) Last night's one for the books. ;-)

I can't believe Shige's Aoi Hitorigoto column in Myojo is ending. Oh how my heart aches

I remember first stumbling into his articles a couple years ago. Back then, I never knew that a Japanese idol like Shige existed: how can someone who sings pop songs in a boyband in feathered, glittery outfits be this astute and literary? I was so bowled over. Through numerous Aoi Hitorigoto essays he has written, I've fallen in love with Shige and how he expresses himself. He has a clear-eyed, balanced outlook in life that is spun into beautiful words by his literary heart, inspired by his deep regard for art and the people he loves, and more often than not, arrived at thanks to his offbeat (and sometimes arrogant) humor and his ready laughter for his shortcomings and failures.What deepens the connection for me is that he's only one year older than me, and I frequently think we're so similar. Not in a we're-meant-to-be-together kind of similar, but just... similar. The same, I tell you. He's always been so painfully self-conscious and self-aware, just like I am, and that is the meat of his writing (as it is mine). But he's on a completely different level, and I'm willing to bet his writing reads even better in its original Japanese, which I sadly can't read. I want to be able to, one day. Shige's words are compelling exactly because he is always nothing but honest. He might not be the best dancer or singer or actor in Johnny's, but he more than makes up for it with sheer personality, gravitas, and character. And please, he finished law. He's geeky, awkward, funny, and sincere. I will never understand people who say he's boring. 

This is an excerpt from one of my favorite essays of his, written about his visit to a Salvador Dali art exhibit:

"Dalí continued to produce art to show his love for Gala. But as a result, his art touched the hearts of many people. Maybe someone creates art to express his love with all his heart, then this art becomes a stimulus for someone else who in turn creates his own piece of art for the person he loves. This mixture of love becomes the nurturing ground for new art. Someday I want to meet my fated someone, the person I can continue to love my whole life. It would be great if at that time I could express my love in an equally charming way as Dalí did."
(translation by [info]dotintheshark )

How many girls want to be the Gala to your Salvador Dali, Shige, you'll never know. (Thousands! Millions! Me!!!)
