I was watching this short film during work yesterday~ Not only becoz da cute guy, but it really captures the isolation of people living in the city nowadays, especially when you start living by yourself. Sometimes you just miss how it feels~
順便質疑一下，為甚麼電影里的宅男可以帥成這樣？But that’s movie, right? We might not have a second chance in life with the same person. There only gonna be one shot, one chance. What if the girl’s got promoted to somewhere else? What if both of them just waiting for the other one to take action? What if the guy is too shy to walk to her department and ask where she’s transfering to?
When we wish 有情人終成眷屬，we might just take it as a nice thing to say; then we become cynical and not really convinced about this BS; and when we go throught some of the joy and pain love brings, we start to see it from a fresh point of view, we start to understand終成眷屬，does not just HAPPEN, it does not depict an end, it is an ongoing process that NEVER ends. The journey begins when two are truly willing and ready to take whatever’s coming along the way, side by side, hand in hand.
Ike Graham: [on the perfect proposal] Look, I guarantee there’ll be tough times. I guarantee that at some point, one or both of us is gonna want to get out of this thing. But I also guarantee that if I don’t ask you to be mine, I’ll regret it for the rest of my life, because I know, in my heart, you’re the only one for me.
In a way, we really own those romantic movies a huge ‘thank you’. It might get us to do silly things and believe in stupid promises or fantasize the perfectionness, but it also demostrates how genuinely romantic we all are and how creative we can be when we fall for someone. By all means, those classic quotes, poetries, actings, scripts, soundtracks, lyrics, paintings are all created by human beings and they are from their personal experiences and understandings, they might polish some,yet I always believe that the spontaneous act of love must be so much magical than those carefully scripted ones.
But then again, the question is, when the love crashes and burns out, how we can convince ourselevs that ture love will come to us, one more time?
And the other day, me and Qian were discussing what ‘true’ love is really true, well, we had no clue, for the lack of experiences-.- Yet we are both so convinced that the love in “500 Days of Summer” is not ‘love’ and love in “Leaving Las Vegas” is ‘true’ love.
Yes, you got it, we love depressing and self-destroying kind of love stoies.
But my version of love is different from hers, in fact everyone has their own version of ‘true’ love. I need someone who can hold my hands whenever and where ever I want, can kiss me in public, can openly express any affection we feel about each other… I know some men won’t do it for some stupid pride and I admit I have that stupid pride as well, but it will all disappear after the DTR-‘Define The Relationship’, yer, that’s what they call it-.-
I was reading this article the other day and I got convinced all over again that true love does come twice if the first one dies. She says “the curious thing about love the second time around: it still has that same swooping passion of first love, yet seems all the more precious when you also know the meaning of loss. That dosent necessarily make you needy (although what is neediness, other than longing and desire unfulfilled?), but it dose stop you from taking love for granted.”
And life after all is all about love~ That is the ultimate feelings we feel towards everything, with gratitude.
All the girls around me are either still recovering from a shitty ‘relationship’, or in a long distance one or in the process of a lot of uncertainty with someone~ But I do believe we all gonna be fine, just that it’s very important to discover one’s own identity through work and independent set of friends~
Love comes when it comes~ Only fools rush thing~
