V Day is Just arOund the Corner

It's February 2009 and Valentine's Day is just around the cOrner! And that means Valentine's Day with all its chances to share warmth, romance, or just plain fun....

So who has more fun on Valentine’s Day? Those who are Single or those who are Coupled?

“Couples, of course!” Mariel said, enthusiastically. “Why?, you fall in love all over again! Flowers in the morning, sweet messages throughout the day, a romantic dinner, and a Valentine’s gift to cap it off.”

“On the contrary,” Nikka countered, “Valentine’s is not just about romantic love. It’s about
celebrating love in all its forms. I can have a fab dinner with my friends or family and have as much fun as you.”

I thought:
To those Valentine’s days spent single—doubled over in laughter with my friends, being silly, eating at a restaurant, or hitting the videoke. The bonding, the good vibes, the company. Those days were a blast.

Fast forward to those people who would spend Valentines Day as a couple, waking up to a call from the person you love, those three long-stemmed roses, and, gosh, a dinner date! The ambience, the mood, the candlelight, and the love of your life! What else would be more perfect?
Then later I was transfixed!

“Well?” Honey and Nikka's voice broke my reverie.

Who has more fun on Valentine’s Day? You tell me.

Rain Drops

Have you noticed how much of a cry baby the sky has been lately? Of course you have! Unless you haven’t gone out of your fully soundproofed house that allows you to not hear anything from the outside. And this house you’ve been living like a hermit in has no windows nor cracks on the wall that would allow you a glimpse of the gray outside. And you had no contact from the outside world, meaning no internet, television, cell phones, telephones, beepers, walkie talkies, and friends who are most likely to talk about the weather. So yeah, if you weren’t that type to live like the aforementioned way of life, well, you must have noticed how it’s been raining cats and dogs.

Not so long ago, I was bored at home and it was raining hard. Being a teenager born in the camera generation a.k.a. “Picture! Picture!” generation, I took shots of the raindrops falling on the window. And again, as dramatic as this may sound, the raindrops looked like diamonds in its purest form.

Do you like the rain? ‘Cause I love the rain. But most people don’t like it. I guess this is because the rain has the ability to dampen a person, not only physically but also emotionally and possibly mentally, too. I love the rain. As dramatic as this may sound, the rain comforts me. And also makes me sleepy.
I often hear people say how difficult it is to focus on lessons because of the rain. True, true. Because when it rains, it’s usually cold and like some magical spell, this has the power to lull someone to sleep. Whenever I hear that soft pit-pattering of the rain on the glass window of the classroom I am in or most especially by my bed, I instantly want to curl up and drift into a deep sleep. And the cold wind and dark sky lighting helps bring me into a lazy and lethargic state. Yawn. Now stretch.

On rainy days, it’s funny how my eyes tend to droop lower and lower until they’re shut.

However nowadays, I can’t do that. I just can’t. ‘Cause it’s not only raining cats and dogs in my world and every other student’s world, but also papers and examinations. Am I right or am I right?

And it’s on Monday nights when this overwhelming feeling of laziness creeps in. Monday nights remind me of the three other nights I have to live through to reach Friday nights that end and welcome the weekend. Do you feel the same way?

We may be sleepless this rainy season but remember, everything that gets wet dries up. We shouldn’t get carried away with those drowsy feelings no matter how tempting they are. If we just put our mind into it, those feelings will go away. :)
