so it's feb. i barely noticed how close valentine's is already, when i'm not even the busiest person these days. =P i was usually on a pre-valentine high when february hits, but not this year... maybe because i'm not in school anymore, i don't see much of those valentine gimmick ads that bulletin boards are normally bombarded with. or maybe because i'll be going straight home and just have dinner with my mom on the 14th because i don't have any date. don't feel sorry for me though, i do have plans on the 13th and 15th. ;)

UP fair next week. kind of sucks when i have to wake up at 5 in the morning the next day... but it's ok (i guess) even if i miss all the great bands (cos i'll probably just stay for 3 hrs :D), i'll see my friends again anyway. it's the company that matters. :)

anyway, i got to read last year's Sieve feb issue again, which made me laugh (pong's valentine's day humbugs), reminisce (kuya rodel's hirit lang po!) and ponder on some stuff (well, the rest of the articles there) such as this:

"what about love?"
"overrated. biochemically no different from eating large quantities of chocolate."
- kevin lomax & john milton, the devil's advocate

well, that's all i guess. i wish everyone a happy valentine's day! :)
if things are not looking up, grab some chocolates. ;)

nothing is more practical than finding God, that is, than falling in love in a quite absolute, final way.
what you are in love with, what seizes your imagination, will affect everything. it will decide what will get you out of bed in the morning, what you do with your evenings, how you spend your weekends, what you read, who you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude.
fall in love, stay in love, and it will decide everything.
