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:
- 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. 🙂
what happen on the story that you are going to do for me po 🙂
omg, yes, have gone totally busy! will find the time to catch up!

*fave*, I mean. 🙂
An all-time have, too. Ganda rin ng soundtrack. Try to see “Upside Down”, nice story, too.
apir! i will try to check it out, thanks 🙂
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!
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.
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 😉
well you have no worries with me. i’m clueless and would love for you to spoil everything. yes, done deal, one time we can. have you been to isdaan in tarlac? they have that kind of stuff.
I have! Hahaha! I love it there, I love places where you don’t get banned for smashing things.
been there once; didn’t feel the need to smash stuff then though 😀
hmmm, mapanuod nga ang movie na ito. 🙂
go for it. it’s a nice movie that will entertain you. 🙂
hmmm, sigurado bang ma-iinLab si Cup dyan. hehe.
aba nasasaiyo yan kaibigan kung naghahanap ka ba ng kakainlaban eh malamamg makikita mo yan!
yes, sa movie. 🙂
sabi ni torrent ilang oras na lang ang downloading. hahaha, at mapapanood ko na.
i will… w/ matching coated peanuts habang nanunuod. 🙂
go for it 🙂
ngiyaw, tagalog ng meow.
sabi ko na eh, di ko alam bat favorite comment mo yan. ngiyaw-ngiyaw.
kasi naiintindihan ko 😆
hahahaha, very nice answer. ngiyaw.
may pet ka sa bahay mo?
shared pets sa kapatid, dogs/cats, ayun. pag nauwi sa lupang tinubuan, iginagala ko at pinapakain. di ko pa nasubukang magpaligo.
we have dogs too, sangkaterba. it’s noah’s ark at home, pretty much.
wow ha. as in alaga nyo?
ng parents ko.
hmmm, ayaw mo akuin hahahaha. sa amin, may 3 dogs (2 may breed, 1 askal), tapos may pusa rin tapos may 5 kuting ata (wala breed pero cute), ang lakas ngumiyaw, tapos tumatakas sa box.
may sarili akong pets hehe two BAMF domestic long hair cats. i love them to pieces. it’s a struggle when i developed asthma and one friend told me i should get rod of the cats and i’m like i’ll kick you out of my life first mister before i let go of the cats, asshole.
mgf. sarap kasing may alaga eh anu. basta masarap, malungkot lang kapag napawalay, hahanap-hanapin talaga. naalala ko di namin makita ung dati namin puppy, hinanap talaga naming sa lahat ng streets within the village, yun pala nasa kabilang kapitbahay lang, wari nagtago.
mother goes crazy when she loses pets. she lost a dog once though, never seen. our dogs don’t go out so when accidents happen, they get lost, morons.
naku kawawa naman. sayang kapag nawala. baka gawing pulutan. hehe
onga eh pero ginusto nya lumabas eh panindigan na nya 😆
hala, ikaw talaga. mamya takasan ka ng pet mo, kaw din. hehehe
SNP, napanood ko na ang pelikula, hehe, nakakakilig at may parteng nakakalungkot.
SNP = siya nga pala.
panalo diba? gusto ko ang isang ito dahil malungkot at masakit. hindi typical na boy meets girl story. para sakin maganda ang mga trahedya, hindi lang agad-agad halata.
pero may tanong ako, naniniwala ka bang ang pag-ibig ay co-incidence daw? hindi daw ito tadhana? base sa pelikula.
hindi ko alam kung ano ang pinapaniwalaan ko pero siguro magkahati. pag binato ka ng mais kailangan ikaw pa din ang mag effort na tukain ito. kahit isang ektaryang mais pa ang ibato sa harap mo kung wala kang gagawin hindi mapupunta sa tyan mo diba?
hmmm siya nga, napakagandang paliwanag, hehe. napaka-mahiwaga ano, naisip ko muli ang mga what if’s… hala tumatakbo ngayun ang imahinasyon ni cup.
mga what ifs tulad ng? hehe philosophical weekend morning ba
kuwari ganito ako, or ganito siya, o nasa ibang lugar ako, at siya rin, eto ang tanong, “ pagtatagpuin kaya kami” o talagang co-incidence lamang ang nangyari. naku napaka-mahiwaga.
i guess it doesn’t matter kung magtagpo or not. we get what we get eventually and we have to live with it regardless. ganun talaga eh. if it happens, it happens. pero habang hindi pa eh pasyal pasyal muna 😀
pero what if di nga nagtagpo, magtatagpo pa kaya, basta nagtataka ako.
pwedeng oo, pwedeng hindi. minsan nagagawan ng paraan, minsan hindi. ganun talaga eh.
meron kasing mga bagay na idinidikta ng panahon, para makarating sa tamang daan. ngunit saklaw pa rin nating kung minsan ang “Oo” o “Hinde”, ang hindi ko lang alam kung either of the 2 choices ay magiging parehas ang kalalabasan, no matter what. hala, akoy biglang nabahala dyan ah. lalo akong nagtaka. hehe.
that’s true. malaking bagay ang panahon pero sa huli kung paano pa din tayo magrereact dito yung magsasabi kung ano ang ending. minsan walang ending pag wala tayong ginawa. 😆
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).
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!
sa movie na yan nasabi kong napaka unpredictable ng babae at napakabilis ng phasing… :)) tingin mo agkakaron yan ng sequel?
maybe it’s not the gender but love itself. naks! ewan ko, wala akong posisyon dito kaya kayo na lang tatanungin ko. 😉
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. 🙂
Yehes! Summer na summer ang peg! Enjoy~!
yes, thank you. idk how much i’d enjoy though as partying isn’t exactly my asperger stricken thing for obvious reasons and boracay is that kind of place. 😆 idk, hopefully it works out right.
Oo naman! Hopefully you get many “blogable” happenings from that trip! 😀
sana nga, idk, i’m not expecting much 😆 i’ve been lazy with travel posts. i remember i only had one each for legazpi and bohol and my thailan posts were pretty crap.
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…
ay takte yan yung may kulay green na mukang koalang sinapak? nako, napakagandang pelikula! 😀
downloading! 🙂 will watch it later. na-friendzone pala si robin dito? hehehe.
duda ako sa pagkafriendzoned sa kanya. watch it and get back to me, eks!
