What a tragic story. This movie made a huge impact on me after the Book Thief film.

The plot of the story seemed so familiar. It was like a buried memory in my childhood that is once again dug and uncovered to foresee a reality. Even thought I have not read the book but it felt like I had read this classic story upon watching the film.

To summarize it in one line, it is about a man who is on the tip of his fortune and fame who tries to win the girl he once had five years ago. This man, Gatsby, throws out parties in the hopes that his beloved would miraculously be one of his guests. When he was united with his beloved he was mad-- possessive and obsessed. What struck me about this movie is that I can completely relate to Gatsby. His corruption and obsession.

Money can't buy happiness. Yes, we know. But we were ought to be reminded again. I have been longing to write a reflection about this issue. Ladies and Gentleman, as young as I am, only in my eighteenth year of existence do I fully grasp the meaning of this saying. For the past months, I have been obsessed to what awaits me in the future. Because I knew myself too well what I would do to get my ultimate goal -- and that is to be rich. Wow, what a surprise? Sarcastic, isn't it?

And throughout this greed that has been accumulating me inside, I have been introduced to endless paths and ideas. Incidents that made me wondered, 'SO WHAT NOW?'.  Some of you do know that money can't buy happiness. But ain't it summer? And we got money to party? Well my friend, we are talking of long terms here. I know what I am going to say would make no additional impact on how my explanation would be any different from the ones we already know. But mind you, even if you marry the rich man in the world and experience the grands in life-- there will always be an empty spot in your heart that you know it is missing. "She is so lucky but why does she cry? If there is nothing missing in her life why do tears come at night?" And until now, I am yet to find out.

You can't relive the past. Another thing we ought to know but we wish that could happen into our lives again. Many people put throwbacks, visit their old favorite place, and relive their childhood memories (from cartoons to foods). And the sad thing is - it will never be the same. You got a whole new perspective.

Like Gatsby, as I am, tries to win back Daisy in hopes to find an eternal happiness. But at times we think that things will give us eternal happiness will only end bringing a momentary piece of joy. Those we thought that would last forever would only end up with you being disappointed. I see through the vision of Gatsby who is blinded in hopes that he could end up with Daisy. Such a fool he was. If there is one thing I always learn from each experience I have - you don't force yourself to anybody. Have always learned it in a hard way. :(

Beauty is fickle and fleeting. HA! Allow me to express my rage on Daisy's character. She is a selfish, cold-hearted son of a beach. I know a person who resembles Daisy. How I feel sympathy to the poor old Gatsby. I just hate people who can't make out their minds at the last minute! Even when everything is already planned out! It makes everything so injustice and unfair! You have done everything and then you feel betrayed.

She just got her lover and now completely ignores you. It's like everyday as her relationship blooms our friendship fades (OA-Drama). Those ideas you came up just for each other - she can't do it with you but when her lover or other friends ask her she just say yes! It is truly unfair. I've got used to this pain now as soon she started dating. And oh, let's hide her by the name Celine. (But I love Cel and she knows it.)

Start counting on who are your real friends. This scene made a huge impact where no one went to Gatsby's funeral but only Tom. Not even Daisy (Btch). Though there's a perfectly good reason for it. Gatsby never got the chance to know people. He was too selfish. But he had Tom. He was too busy in growing and reaching his lifestyle that he isolated himself from getting socially involved.

This is too true for us students. Some of us are too focused on one thing that we tend to neglect those people who surrounds us. The family and friends. One day you'll just wake up and found yourself how lonely you are. This is a big lesson for me in my first semester in third year. And now I cherished each moments I have starting with my Family- my parents and then friends.

The Great Gatsby is truly an eye opener of one's selfishness and its consequences. Reflect in order to try and figure out what you truly want from life.

You can never tell where and how you'll gonna meet someone. It simply doesn't end in College. Earlier this afternoon, my parents had a business meeting. And this is no ordinary meeting. (This involves 7-digits here. haha) Though it's not what I imagined it to be (them wearing suits) by their clothes. How I wish it would be grand like that!

Alright, straight to the point. So we have this Korean businessman who looks like our moderator in JPIA (haha husshh). We got our intros and asked me what's my age. I said 18 then he said 'Ohh I have two sons who ages 20 and 16) He's older son is studying in New York and the younger is in Manila studying. And at that moment, I reflected in life how there are so many connections and endless possibilities to meet new people!

Laughing out loud in my mind, I imagined what if he'll introduced me to his son and everything. BLABLABLA~

So my point here is, the world of one person doesn't end where he is living or studying. Because one day someone will appear in front of you that will take you to another place you never expected. Endless possibilities.
Nokia: Connecting People. HAHAHA.

I know, DUH CATHY. But that incident just serves as a reminder. Never hurry yourself. There's a greater unexpected experience in store for you!

"Little Wonders"

Let it go,
Let it roll right off your shoulder
Don't you know
The hardest part is over
Let it in,
Let your clarity define you
In the end
We will only just remember how it feels

Our lives are made
In these small hours
These little wonders,
These twists & turns of fate
Time falls away,
But these small hours,
These small hours still remain

Let it slide,
Let your troubles fall behind you
Let it shine
Until you feel it all around you
And i don't mind
If it's me you need to turn to
We'll get by,
It's the heart that really matters in the end

Our lives are made
In these small hours
These little wonders,
These twists & turns of fate
Time falls away,
But these small hours,
These small hours still remain

All of my regret
Will wash away some how
But i can not forget
The way i feel right now

In these small hours
These little wonders
These twists & turns of fate
These twists & turns of fate
Time falls away but these small hours
These small hours, still remain,
Still remain
These little wonders
These twists & turns of fate
Time falls away
But these small hours
These little wonders still remain

This song will be tattooed in my heart and mind in every obstacle I overcome. :')

Inflamed to express liberty,
The sun is vibrant;
Shining through me.
Sound that echoes this season,
Untangles the stress in
Misty winds that nothing could beacon.
Morning's soft air like a weather chime,
Embracing the moment being
Reckless and wild this summer time.

Audrey Hepburn is my all time favorite classic actress. And out of all her movies, Sabrina is THAT movie that reflects MY life. (Laughing out loud mehehe) But compared to her other movies, I'm still weighing which is the best; Breakfast at Tiffany's or Sabrina? Well, either way, Audrey's still the best!

I know it's been a very long while since I made a post that I even skipped the month of February o______o. Being a third year Accountancy student is the hardest challenge one faces--- yet. You will experience going through the eye of the needle. IT'S FREAKING HARD AND I DON'T HAVE ANY CLUE HOW DID I GO THOUGH THIS YEAR. If only this was a rant post, I've been swearing the whole time.

Okay back to the movie.

My love life in a nutshell. (Haha)

The movie starts with Audrey being so in love with David. (Even if she's always hurt when David has another girl #relate)

Fast forward -- She flies to Paris to study cooking and came back to the place as a Sophisticated Mature Woman. And that's when David starts recognizing her. Until such point, this event happened:

DAVID: Oh, Sabrina, Sabrina, where have you been all my life? 
SABRINA: Right over the garage. 
DAVID: Right over my car. Right up in that tree. 
 What a fool I was! 
SABRINA: And what a crush I had on you. 
DAVID: It's not too late, is it? 
SABRINA: I don't know, David. Is it?

But then Audrey - Sabrina starts to fall in love with his brother. And I really love this line:

SABRINA: Dear David. Yes, I did get over that. I'm cured. 
 Now I have to get over the cure!

The moral lesson of the story? You think you're already in love but one day, one person will come to your life and will wake you up or even save you sa imong kahibangan. BOW. THE END.

You can't hurry love, no, you just have to wait. :P AHW.

Skwela sa ta!
