Stuck in Stasis

You've got to get yourself together
You've got stuck in a moment and you can't get out of it
Don't say that later will be better now
You're stuck in a moment and you can't get out of it

And if the night runs over
And if the day won't last
And if your way should falter
Along the stony pass
It's just a moment
This time will pass

I've been stuck in stasis for quite some time now, but it's time to get out and face the world again.

Leaping off the edge

Sinabi nyo sa akin dati, wala kong problema sa lenguwahe, pero takot akong tumayo sa bingit.

SInabi naman ng prop ko sa creative writng, natural daw ako magsulat sa Ingles, na ganito raw talaga ako mag-isip. Pero ang kwento ng burgis na namulat sa gitna ng isang hacienda? She's heard it so many times before.

Nabasa ko ang sinulat ni Piya tungkol sa sinulat ni Milan Kundera, na kaya tayo natatakot kapag umakyat tayo sa mataas na lugar ay di dahil takot tayong mahulog, kundi takot tayo sa nais nating tumalon.

Ganito ako. Hayskul pa lang, mahilig na kong umupo sa taas ng mga ledge sa second floor at tumingin pababa. Hanggang sa rooftop ng Vinzons, iniisip ko pa rin ung anong pakiramdam kung tumalon ako.

Wala na kong trabaho, pero sa wakas, maisusulat ko na ang gusto kong isulat.

Handa na kong tumalon.

Why it's not always good for birds of together to flock the feather

Naalala ko ang sinabi ni Eleyn minsan na mas mahirap ilaban ang gender sensitivity kapag nasa labas na ng Kule, kung saan pare-pareho naman kami mag-isip.

Eto, galing sa blog ni Ethan Zuckerman, co-founder ng Global Voices:

At mula sa Wahington Post, Why Everyone You Know Thinks the Same as You

Ano tingin niyo?

(side note: sa wakas, naka-update din ng blog. :D)

kelan ba ko makakapost ng matinong update?

They say there's time enough for everything, but if there is, I haven't been able to figure out how to fit everything into the seconds that just seem to slip away.

Meanwhile, another chummy quiz (from Kat's multiply).

Parang hindi ako ah (except for the contemplative cat part. baka yun, pwede pa).
