So, it's been, what? Almost a month since I updated my blog. And it's almost dead. Nobody visits here anymore (sob)!
Forgive me for slacking off (again). It's just that I have been pretty busy lately, it almost made me forget that I own a Blogger site. Haha. Anyway, I miss posting whatnots here. Not writing has been pushing me to insanity.
I was browsing my cousin's Friendster account when I realized that she has already gone to the US with her family without having a chance to see or even speak with each other before they took off. I know it was partly my fault because she has been inviting me to go out since forever but like I said, life's been pretty hectic that time that I swore off going out and chilling.
As I was looking at her photos with her friends, I can't help but reminisce those times when we're thisclose to each other. When we were kids, it had always been us; playmates, partners in crime, chatmate, and best friends. Though we occassionally see each other, we grew up together. Distance did not stop us from communicating and catching up. We shared secrets, stories, tears, laughter, sorrow, and joy. I have always treated her just like my own sister, and always looked forward to the next day that we'll be seeing each other.
But as time flew, we slowly drifted apart for no apparent reason. I have the idea that change is to blame but it's not really the culprit since it is the only thing that's constant in this world. I think we didn't even realize it, it just...happened. I've never really given this much thought until today. So many moments were wasted, as well as time.
It made me sad when I think of how it used to be just us. The previous years were nothing as compared to the more previous years we shared together. It's very sad. And I miss her. I miss everything about her and what we used to do together but I can't really do anything because we have changed. Change is a powerful thing; it transforms anything or anyone it can without our permission. And when we realize what change has brought us, it leaves us no choice but to just accept it and live with it.

Finally got the chance to see Twilight on the big screen and I will be giving my informal movie review. :)
To be perfectly honest, I was kind of disappointed because there were several errors and the kilig factor was not given much attention. It mainly focused on the story itself, not on the cheesiness of Bella and Edward. Haha. Then again, I loved it. I LOVE IT.
Some of the actors did not give justice to their roles. Robert Pattinson, who played Edward Cullen, totally justified the character's physique but not the character/attitude. Kristen Stewart played the role just okay, I think. She was not exactly like Bella Swan in the movie but I like how she played the role. Less needy and less aggressive unlike in the novel. I love Ashley Greene as Alice Cullen. She played the role perfectly. Too bad her lines and scenes were limited. But we'll be expecting more from her in the following movies.
Although they made the movie quite differently from the novel, they are excused. Well, that's how it's supposed to be, right? The movie does not exactly resemble the scenes in the book. And besides, the essence of the story was there. That's all that matters.
With the millions they made for Twilight, I am expecting more from New Moon. I hope they would make it tons better. On second thought, I think they should save up half the money they made for the final saga, Breaking Dawn. :p
So long as the movie exists in the cinemas, I will see it all over no matter how many times. My money is worth it. :)

I know, I know. It's been quite a while since I last blogged. I didn't even find time to blog about my 18th birthday (which was, believe me, totally insignificant). It just seemed like my creative juices have run dry and I am somewhat just preoccupied with reading, swooning and obsessing about the Twilight saga. Okay, blame Edward Cullen.
It's not surprising, really. I actually fell in love with the books and Edward kind of late. But then, I am addicted to it. Haha. I couldn't even find the right words to describe how I feel about the books and Edward. Amazing would be an understatement because it's way beyond that.
My mouth only speaks of how excited, addicted, and in love I am with Edward and the books. Gah. Okay. I'm blabbing too much. Haha. PLEASE DO WATCH THE MOVIE ON THE 26th! Twilight has to earn $150, 000, 000 to be able to release the second book, New Moon.
I am having a hard time dealing with the fact that Edward Cullen is a fictional character. How I wish he were real. I wouldn't mind being a vampire that instant if he falls in love with me. Right. As if.
