500 Days Of Summer Moment… Or Not

500 days of summer

Hi guys, the week almost closing, how are you doing? 🙂 Okay, so I really did not plan on posting anything today  but I just had this conversation with my friend about the fantastic movie 500 Days of Summer that I just love to death… You know me, sometimes my sister has to check if I’m sleeping or dead while watching movies but this one I’m just crazy about it.

Anyway, I wanted to ask you a few things:

500-days-of-summer

  • Is there such a thing as love as in happily ever after or is it a fantasy as in there’s a unicorn kind of thing, you’ve been fooled HAHA?
  • Is it possible to love someone so much to be 100% sure of forever or is it expected that a day will surely come when you or your partner wake up with completely changed feelings and there’s nothing left to do but walk away?
  • Is there a name for someone who isn’t a friend but isn’t a lover? I love that bit when Joseph Gordon-Levitt playing Tom throws this giant tantrum against Zoeey Deschanel playing Summer, where he said, “Don’t say it. This is not how you treat a friend!” Incredible.

So, what do you think? It’s nothing personal, just throwing some thoughts at you. If you haven’t seen 500 Days of Summer, watch the trailer here. It’s the cutest – the music in there is fantastic too. Let me know, okay and have a good day. 🙂

  2. napanood ko na siya dati at medyo hindi ko na maalala yung ibang detaly pero nakakalola yanh film na yan with dancing-dancing pa ha. hehehe

    i want to believe that there are people who know how to love wholeheartedly and for life. Pero I admit, sa situation ko ngayon para sa akin isa itong miracle. Parang wala rin akong tiwala na madali itong mangyari. puro sana.

    • sabi ko nga hoshi eh dapat magdagdag ng status sa facebook, isama yung waiting for a miracle para mas accurate at mas useful para sa nakararami!

  3. I love this movie din! Minahal naman ni Summer si Tom, hindi nga lang enough yung love niya para mag-next level ang relationship nila. Favorite scene ko yung sa dulo, yung nasa bench sila. Yung sinabi ni Summer dun yung magpapatunay na hindi naman na-friendzone si Tom. Bow.

    • you have a point. at the end of the day, it will always fall down to the simple question: is it enough to inspire you to move forward? the answer may take you to heaven or hell but as long as it is the truth then only good things can come out of it eventually.

  4. Hahaha this is one of my favorites too because HEARTACHE! Anyway, I’m going to answer now.

    Is there such a thing as love as in happily ever after or is it a fantasy as in there’s a unicorn kind of thing, you’ve been fooled HAHA?

    No, I don’t think you can love a person forever. It’s ideal, sure, but we need to wake up from this grandiose delusion that love stays because most times it doesn’t. Let’s stop putting love in the great outdoors and expect it to remain in its original state.

    Is it possible to love someone so much to be 100% sure of forever or is it expected that a day will surely come when you or your partner wake up with completely changed feelings and there’s nothing left to do but walk away?

    Both situations are absolutely plausible. One day you’ll meet a person and you’ll know. You just do, I think? I mean, I know feelings shouldn’t be measured but there are times when you feel intense love towards another person. Where do you think all those sad bastard songs came from? Intense feelings and sudden indifference. Hahaha

    Is there a name for someone who isn’t a friend but isn’t a lover? I love that bit when Joseph Gordon-Levitt playing Tom throws this giant tantrum against Zoeey Deschanel playing Summer, where he said, “Don’t say it. This is not how you treat a friend!” Incredible.

    It’s called a fuck buddy. I’m siding with Tom, all right, because Summer is a fucking bitch. Don’t play husband and wife with me in Ikea and expect me not to feel anything. LOL JK. They never DTR (defined the relationship) so good on you, Summer. You played it well, girl.

    I think my most favorite scene is when Tom got super sad and started slamming plates on his countertop. Fucking golden. I always use that GIF when I’m frustrated and sad, which is all the time. Anyway, great post, PM. 🙂

    • i so love it when you talk about tv or movies, elaine. fantastic! remind me again why i feel some bit of aggression getting released on your comment? 😆 strong points btw. i also loved that scene. maybe i should try that sometime. looks cathartic. or better, we can have a contest and see who breaks more plates in a minute. 😉 thank you, your post today is awesome too.

      • Heehee ❤ that's because I love talking about television and movies all the time. I swear, my friends hate it when I start talking about television shows and series they haven't seen because I almost always end up spoiling them :/ I'm trying my best not to but I get so overwhelmed sometimes, especially when the material is good. Okay, deal! Breaking stuff is fun especially if you're doing it with a friend 😉

  5. PM, Hollywood movies only show the beginning of a romance that works, and the first complication that the lovers successfully manage to move past from to discover the perfect relationship. Don’t compare relationships to Hollywood though – you will always be disappointed.
    What such features do not show you is the hard work that needs to be put into a relationship. But, you’re an intelligent young woman, so you already know this, right?
    Relationships can work like a fantasy; however you need commitment, respect and magic. If you look very closely PM, you will find that love is everywhere – it only seems to hide when your eyes are not completely open to it. Also you can truly love someone forever, however today cheating more often than not is something that many people will often do when their partner’s backs are turned. Like I previously mentioned – you commit yourself one hundred per cent, and you never look back, and when this happens, nothing nefarious can come between you. Change only happens if you want it to. Nefarious change only happens if you do something wrong – do the right thing, and your relationship will succeed. Feelings can and do change PM, but you control it, nobody else. The heart may want what the heart may want, but you, and you alone are entitled to make that choice. You need to use your brain and your heart in one – not remove one from the equation, for the two are stronger together. However PM, if you already have yourself a partner, then you needn’t worry about such philosophy for you would already be living the dream, right?
    Also, if you liked 500 days of Summer, I’d recommend to you (if you haven’t already seen it) Love Happens (Aaron Eckhart, Jennifer Aniston, Martin Sheen).
    Cheers!

    • you don’t like hollywood much, do you my friend? thank you for your thoughts. they’re a nice insight into you, appreciate it. who knew a naughty nefarious guy can be 100% game to commitment? or is it easy to say these things because you’re out of the equation? no, i don’t have a partner right now but i can tell you i’m quite living the dream still 🙂 i’ll try to find that movie and tell you what i think after, thanks!

  6. sa movie na yan nasabi kong napaka unpredictable ng babae at napakabilis ng phasing… :)) tingin mo agkakaron yan ng sequel?

  7. Lovely questions for my Thursday! Thanks ate PM~!

    My heart is inclined to think that there is indeed a happily ever after kind of love; it’s just that, they’re rare these days which make some people THINK that it is not probable anymore and so, said people just relegate the love-ever-after as some unicorn’s farts. Lol.

    It’s possible to love someone so so much to be 100% sure of forever AT ONE POINT or points in your relationship but I think it(chemical attraction?) will die down later on during the “forever”. Wah. I sound like a cynic already. Haha.
    If I will have the honor to name it, maybe I’ll name it Pillow. Hahaha.

    Pillow: “Hugging and Kissing? Don’t say it. This is not how you treat a friend!”
    Neither a friend nor a lover. Hmmmm. Hmmmmm.

    Sorry if my answers seem like they aren’t serious…but yeah, they are. 🙂

    • it’s a nice fantasy, isn’t it, the happily ever after story? i love your take on the pillow. sometimes i ask myself how do you treat a friend. 😆 but i do believe that by nature, feelings and people change. you just have to hope the changes are for the better. well if you’re the kind of person to hope, that is.

      • Yeah. And btw, this 500 days with summer is just classic Classic! I love every bit of it. I might watch it again this weekend because of your post. hahaha.

        That’s a good one! Changing for the better! It’s also possible to grow closer (take that Zooey!), hopefully. 🙂

        I love Zooeys eyes…they’re calling me. . . Haha~

        • or grow apart and become suffocated. 😆 yes, she’s a doll, isn’t she? maybe i’ll watch it too when i get some time off work, which is very soon! where are you heading this summer anyway, lady?

          • Yeah she is! I religiously watch her New Girl show just to get a dose of her quirks. Haha.

            Yay~ Did you file for a leave?

            I don’t know yet. My summer is always default: sleeping. My brother is inviting me to go mountaineering. I’ll think about it.

            How about you ate? San ang lakad naten? 😀

            • good for you. i haven’t developed the interest to watch any tv series yet. give mountaineering a shot! who knows, maybe you’ll fall in love with it. yes, boracay on the first week of april, company outing. 🙂

  8. I don’t think it’s possible… There are no happy endings, no forever and ever… Sorry to be the evil step mother, but that IS reality..

    And yes i’ve watched 500 days of summer… Is this the movie with the “this is sparta” shout?

    At bakit nag iinggles na naman ako!?!?!?

    • noong una ko tong pinanood kampi ako kay tom pero napatunayan ko na tama si summer 😆 ay teka anong pelikula na nga pinapagusapan natin? saan part nga nakita ni nemo yung tatay nya?

      • sa bandang huli.. yung nag eespadahan sila.. sabi nung tatay niya.. “i am your father, luke”..

        nagustuhan ko yang 500.. ayoko mang aminin pero may kurot sa puso ko.. kaya naluha ako…
