Cramming for Revalida

5 days to go before I face my tribe during the dreaded Revalida (THE gruelling oral examination that every Thomasian medical clerk needs to pass in order to graduate) . I'm cramming as usual. Decided to decongest the inbox of my cellphone (my old phone got stolen, don't have a copy of the numbers in my phone book so I lost contact with some of the most important people in my life.grr! and the guilt-free guy still had the nerve to text my mom using my old SIM and ask for money!ranting again...) 'coz the NO SPACE FOR NEW MESSAGES flashing incessantly on my phone's screen is causing further agitation...
1. A stoic wondering..."Life is tricky isn't it? You want things you can't get. You get things you don't want. You get things you used to want but not anymore. You want things you used to get but not anymore. When you finally get what you want, you want something else. When you finally want what you get, you get something else. Funny how we make life seem absurd when it's not."
2. A stranger approached a child and asked, "What is love?" The child answered, "Hmmm...Love is when you tell a boy you like his shirt and he wears it everyday."
3. Have you ever experienced a time in your life when you felt so empty for no reason? Have you ever felt so down but you just can't tell why? Have you ever felt like the world suddenly spins around you and you are caught in the middle going nowhere? Weird isn't it? But that's the beauty of being human. It is knowing that there is a purpose for each existence. And whatever that may be, it is also the reason why we still wake up breathing each morning... to discover that missing piece of puzzle that would make our lives complete.
4. Loving someone who doesn't love you back is like reaching for a star. You know you'll never reach it but you just have to keep on trying...because someday, who knows? It might fall...
5. Soulmates are never found by grasping every hand you see and testing if both your hands fit together. But instead, it's that certain someone who stares back at you at the other side of life when you lose consciousness of everything else around you and you feel a few seconds of what eternity really means.
