Another Day Has Passed: It's Just Another Day By Paul McCartney

It sure can be stressful when you wake up in the morning. You try to get your senses together as you prepare to face the day. Once you start, it can be a real struggle or you get irritated when something get's in the way of the usual routine. Still, at the end of the day, you breathe a sigh of relief that you were able to last out the day. Feeling the relief that another day has passed reminds me of Paul McCartney's song "It's Just Another Day".

As I've mentioned time and time again, it's always a struggle to get up and face the day. You never know what will happen when you go out there. There are even times when something just hits you hard and before you know it, your whole world turns upside down. Still, you weather the storm and do what you can to control the damage before the day's end. What is important is that you end the day with all issues resolved and you were able to walk away.

We never know what the day would bring. It could be a good day or a bad day. What is important is that we are always able to get up and face the world each day we wake up. Even when things go bad, the fact that we are able to get through the day shows that it wasn't so bad after all. After all, it's just another day and maybe there'll be better ones to follow.

Shedding Off The Dependency: Don't Shed A Tear For Me By Paul Carrack

One good thing about the old songs is that there were always some tunes that some songs that give you reassurance when things look bleak. Among the songs that I liked back then were those that dealt with being able to move on after being dependent on something or someone. It reminds us that no matter how much it hurts or how difficult the times are going to be, we will survive. No matter how long it takes, there will be a light at the end of the dark tunnel. One song that reminds me of that lesson is Paul Carrack's "Don't Shed A Tear For Me".

I know this song is about a break up but then again, it can be about any kind of separation. There are times that we relied on something or someone for so long. It gets to the point that we are too dependent on them and when they are gone, that's when things get hard. Still that doesn't that it's the end of the world. Letting go is part of life and even if it's painful, we must move on.

I'm saying that it's going to be easy. I'm a bit too attached to some things myself and lately things are getting harder and harder. I don't know how I'm going to handle this but other people were able to make it through the storm, then so can I. I didn't make it this far just to fall apart now. I maybe in for a long night but the sun will rise with or without the things that I once depended on so I know things will be fine in the end.

Songs That Remind Me Of My Nanny: For All We Know By The Carpenters

Today is September 22 and that is my late nanny's birthday. For some time now, I make it a point to remember her birthday in my blog posts. It is the least that I can for all the love and care that she gave me and my family. Not a day goes by when I don't think about her. One song that reminds me of her is "For All We Know" by The Carpenters.

This as well as other songs remind of the time she would come back from her province after a long break. She would bring these old record players and some 45 singles with which she would play them on. Whenever she leaves for that break, I really miss her. It's really not the same when she's not around. Whenever she comes back, I always rush in and greet her with open arms because she was the light of our house and the help she gave my mother was invaluable.

Right now, it's been 12 years since she passed away. I still feel sad I was not able to see her before her passing. I can never thank her enough for all that she's done for us. I deeply regret that I was not able to that much for her and I still wish that she was with us not to serve but just to be with us. She's earned that and how I wish that I could have done more for her because there will never be another like her. Happy Birthday Ado, we miss you a lot!

Bittersweet Memories: Bittersweet By Bighead Todd And The Monsters

One of the reasons why I started this blog is to remember the things that happened in the past. Just like everybody else, there were good times as well as bad times. Sometimes the good follows the bad and vice-versa. Nevertheless, they were all part of my life for better or worse. Remembering the good as well as the bad reminds me of the song "Bittersweet" by Bighead Todd And The Monsters.

There is no perfect time and there is no worst time. I may be wrong but even during the best of times, there will always an incident which would prevent it from being perfect. Same can be said for the bad times when there are instances where there are moments where you get some relief and you remember that no matter how bad it gets, it'll eventually pass. No matter how hard you try, you can't remember one without the other. That's because they are a part of one's life

That's why when I remember things, I feel happy and sad at the same time. Sometimes the good memories gets spoiled by past incidents that ruined the moment. Other times, the bad memories were mollified by the kinds of support and sympathy. It depends which outweighed which. Still, that's life. It can be more sweet than bitter or more bitter than sweet.

Know What It's Like To Be Given Up On: Don't Give Up On Us Baby By David Soul

You know what I hate about feeling angry is that a multitude of bad memories flood my brain. A lot of which often deals about being disappointed or being given up on. Man, whenever those experiences come back to haunt me, it really brings me down. This is because a lot of times, people didn't take the patience to teach me certain things. When it comes to being given up on, David Soul's song "Don't Give Up On Us Baby" comes to mind.

I was always a slow learner when it comes to picking up new things. As a result, I had to look to others to learn what I need to learn. On disappointment, I sure had a lot of them and it's all written here for all to see. Opportunities, people, or whatever they were, just turned to dust or simply fell apart. What hurts was these things were lost to me when I needed them the most.

I guess that's the main reason why I do my best when something is set before me. I know how it feels to expect so much but wind up with nothing in the end. It's something I wouldn't want to do on others. More importantly, I don't give on anybody,especially when they are important to me. I don't give up on myself or others because they're worth it, no matter how crazy life gets.

This Reminds Me Of Third Year Chemistry: She Blinded Me With Science By Thomas Dolby

What was supposed to the best year in high school for some was theworse year for me. I'm talking about my junior or third year in highschool. Let's just say it started all right and I thought I was goingto have a blast. Turns out, everything that I hoped for got blastedto bits. One of the reasons for that is Chemistry. Whenever I thinkabout that year and that subject, I remember the song "She Blinded MeWith Science" by Thomas Dolby.

One of the reasons why things soured during my high school year wasbecause of that accursed subject. I fought like the devil in thatsubject but I failed in two grading period. I was terrified because Ididn't want to take summer but because my marks were low, I wasgrounded. On top of that, a lot of other things happened that addedmisery to my junior. Man, sucked big time.

The only time I was able to breathed a sigh of relief was when I got my report card and thankfully I didn't take remedial class, let alonesummer. Still the kill ratio was terrible cause a lot of other guysand even girls either took summer or repeated. Sadly, it did nothingto ease the disappointment that I had cause the things that I wantedto do didn't come true that. It didn't cause I almost got blinded withscience, particularly chemistry!

Some Things That Tick Me Off: Don't Tread On Me By The Damn Yankees

I'm feeling very angry today as in Paul Sr. of American Chopper's mad. I guess it's because of a few touchy issues that irk me once it's brought out for discussion. Or it could be because I'm stressed out only to have more stress poured on me. On top of that, things that I've been working are just getting harder with no results in sight. I guess why I chose the Damn Yankee's song "Don't Tread On Me" for this post.

You know when times are hard and sacrifices are made, sometimes it gets to the point where even the things you treasure are at risk of being taken. When something I treasure is in danger of being taken, it's like lighting my long fuse to a very powerful explosive or when people force me to talk about things that I feel sensitive about, it brings out the ugliness in me. Apart from that, when I feel so tired, my tolerance for nasty surprises are at an all-time low. It's bad enough that I can't do the things that I want to do. So when the few things that give me pleasure are put into question, let alone are at risk of being taken away, I feel like it's a violation of my space.

I'm not blaming anybody but sometimes when these things are brought out, it turns me inside out and it's not good for me and those around me. Usually I'm very considerate but there are certain lines that shouldn't be crossed and if people don't know what those lines are then I guess they don't really know me. I swear if I ever think about getting a tattoo, it would be the the First Navy Jack Flag with the slogan "Don't Tread On Me" or if I get my own place, I would paint a wall-size version of it in my room. My annoyance is subsiding a bit now that I put my feeling to print. To sum it all up, making me give something up or bringing up sensitive issues stirs something in me so don't tread on me.

The Infamous Pool Scene; Moving In Stereo By The Cars

When I was a kid, we drooled over actress Phoebe Cates. Anyone whoever saw her can say that she can give today's young actresses a run for their money. She had that girl-next-door-image that any guy can fall for. It was a big surprise that she did that infamous pool scene from the movie "Fast Times In Ridgemont High". I remember the song used for that scene was the song "Moving In Stereo" by The Cars.

I remember that scene clearly as if it was yesterday. Phoebe Cates and Jennifer Jason Leigh were both relaxing by the pool while Judge Rinehold was fantasying about her. I won't go into details but to say that that scene caught my eye was an understatement. I'm not surprised if every teenage guy who saw that scene was saying "WOW"! I never thought that she would be she did and I'll never forget that scene.

I heard she later married actor Kevin Kline and her last movie was 2001's "Anniversary Party". Despite the scene she did in this movie and the movie "Paradise", she never lost her wholesome image. That alone is an achievement in itself. I guess she's happy with the life that she has now. Well, we'll always remember her for that scene.

80's Excess/When You're Life's A Mess: Bright Lights, Big City By Billy Jimmy Reed

One of the movies that left a deep impression on me was the movie "Bright Lights, Big City" which was based on the book of the same name by Jay Mclnerney which starred Micheal J. Fox. It was about a fact checker who was struggling to keep his job as well as the excess of the big parties and personal problems that were taking a mental and emotional toll on his life. Eventually he lost his job and his wife but he was able to get hold of himdself and break free of the excesses that kept him down. After all those heavy party scenes, I remember the last part where he was muching of fresh bread and complating starting over with Jimmy Reed's song "Bright Lights, Big City" playing in the background.

I guess I could relate with the character because like him, there was a time when I was under a lot of pressure. The scene where he lost his job reminded me of the time the new management moved in and we were let go in favor of the incoming staff that they brought along. This happened during one of my down cycles when the good times ended and the hardships began. Those party scenes remind me of some of the times when I went to some gimmicks but felt out of place and just got plastered. I didn't really enjoy myself because I was out of my element and trying to be with the in-crowd wasn't all that it was made to be.

Right now, I'm still coping with a lot of things which why I stay sober these days. When you do things in excess and for the wrong reasons, you really start to loose your head and your grip on reality. There are a lot of things that I need to clear up right now and hopefully get thngs back on track. Things are still tough but I do hope I find a way out of this. Till then, I'll have to keep on moving in the hope that something comes along

Keep Getting Up And Keep On Fighting: Get Up, Stand Up By Bob Marley And The Wailers

The fact that I talk about dreams and projects that fell apart all the time clearly reflects the frustration I feel about. Who wouldn't feel that way,especially when these could have turned your life around only to disintegrate right before your eyes after working so hard. Yet I don't want to cry over it; instead I'd rather get back up and keep on going. This time around, I really want to succeed cause I'm tired of seeing things go down the drain. The inspiration to get up after a lot of setbacks reminds me of the song "Get Up, Stand Up" by Bob Marley And The Wailers.

As much as it hurts to see dreams disappear to thin air, I have always accepted the end results no matter how much it hurts. Still, that doesn't mean that I like it. I'm tired of loosing what I want in life and having to accept what I don't want. My strategies may be wrong or I'm wailing away at it mindlessly but it's better than doing nothing. I just can't stand loosing anymore and just once I'd like to see something good happen.

Being that said, right now, I'm back at the drawing board. I've been going over all the tips and suggestions for what I'm currently working on. It's still a puzzle to me but if I want to succeed, I better understand it. Life's been playing a lot of bad jokes on me but I'm not giving up. I'll keep going at going at till I get it right

Need To Think Out Of The Box: Living In A Box By Living In A Box

Right now I am sighing of cause life is getting tougher everyday. It doesn't help that no matter how hard you make meet, it's enough. It's not just me but everyone is feeling the pressure and are doing their best to get by. These days, I've been trying to find a way to break this really cold ice to let something happen and I guess in order to do that, I have to try something new. Trying to go beyond what I know reminds me of the song "Living In A Box" by Living In A Box.

It's so frustrating that when you trying your head above water, the water level starts to rise. You get that feeling that your trapped. But are those who were able to overcome and even succeed in life. They took a lot of risks and went beyond their safety zone. As a reason, they are now reaping the fruits of their hard work.

I hate to admit but right now I'm still haven't been able to make any improvements on the things that I've been working on. Every time, an opportunity arises, there's always a catch and I'm back at square one. It's not that I'm afraid but I need to know what I'm getting into as well as assessing what resources I have available if it is enough. I just want to make something and continue to make it happen. As I've said earlier I have to think outside the box ore else I might wind up living in a cardboard box!

Life Sure Was A Breeze Back Then: Semi-Charmed Life By Third Eye Blind

Sometimes when I see my nephews always going out early and coming home late. I get a little jealous. It's not that I'm condoning that kind of habit. It's just that it reminds of the good old days when life was a breeze. You wake up on the weekends and go where you want to go to pass the time. Remembering those days when life was cool reminds of Third Eye Blind's song Semi-Charmed Life.

I know it sounds redundant but for reason I was kind of stressed this weekend and I don't so hot today. Bad enough that it's Monday but I longed for the days where I just hung around and ate whatever I liked before heading back home. In between, I get to relax and re-charged so I face the week full of spirits. Apart from the freedom, it was also cheaper back then. This made possible for me gorge myself to my stomach's content. Even though cellphones were still in the hands of a few and the internet was still dial-ups, it was still a blast because I got to go where I wanted to go and did what I wanted to do.

As I've said before, today is a different story. Something always happens to the point that I'm stressed out. There are no outlets save for working out and that's always in danger and I don't get enough down time to recharge anymore. On top of that, prices have skyrocketed and I would be spending five times the amount that I have spent in the past if I were to continue those weekend getaways. Life sure was a breeze back then and boy do I miss it.

Fight Against The Hurt/Trying Again And Again : One More Try By George Micheal

Not a day goes by when I wake up and I don't feel the sting of a lot of failed attempts at gaining stability that have haunted me. Even as I move on the hurt is always there and it cuts like a knife. Still, I keep moving because I don't want to give up. I've made it this far so there must be something that I'm doing right. That's why I keep trying even though past attempts have hurt me deeply becauseI know that one day, I'll get things right. Trying again and again despite the hurt reminds me of George Micheal's song "One More Try.

They say the past is the past but for me, it haunts me because of a lot of things that ended in failure. What hurts so much about this is those things meant a lot to me. Some people would tell me that may be it wasn't meant for me but doesn't take the hurt away. It gets worse when you see that what is meant for you is something that you don't want. The only obvious answer is to work hard and think harder cause I always believe that you change your fate if you work hard.

Things are getting harder and time is now luxury that is slipping away like water in one's hands. Despite the odds and hurt, I don't want to back down. I'll keep on trying and learn from past mistakes. I'm still and that means there is hope. Ignore the hurt and give one more try and maybe, just maybe we'll get it right.

A Very Angry Song About Wanting To Break Free: Free Me By Roger Daltrey

I remember when I was a kid a saw movie trailer that start The Who front man Roger Daltrey called "Mc Vicar". It was an action packed flim about a criminal who was imprisoned, breaks out and later captured again. I was interested in watching that movie based on what I saw from the trailer. I also liked the soundtracks from the movie. One soundtrack that really caught my ear was the song "Free Me" by Roger Daltrey.

This song had a lot of angst in it and this was before the 90's grunge era. Whenever I hear this song, it reminds of the repressed feelings that everybody has. These days when times are hard, people do their best cope with the pressures that bear down on us. To add insult to injury, things are getting worse and there's no relief in sight. That's one to drive a person up the wall.

Once again, they say that all work and no play makes one dull. These days it can drive one crazy. We all need an outlet for the pressures that hit us everyday. If we don't have that, we might wind up venting our pent-up anger on others and that's not cool. You really need some form of release to free yourself the chains of pressure.

What Excites And Motivates Me: Man Overboard By Eric Clapton

There are a few things that excite me these days. I guess I'm just not in touch with what's going on because it's the same old crap. But when something does catches my eye, I won't stop until I get it. This is especially true when I have the means to obtain it. When it comes to getting excited over something, Eric Clapton's song "Man Overboard" fits the bill.

I know this song is about being excited over a girl but for me, once I like something, there's no stopping me. It's not just about obsession over things. It's also about getting motivated in doing things everyday. Starting things off with a positive attitude and finding a reason for getting things done. Something that drives you which is always important because it gives you are reason for doing things or sticking to a certain path.

I guess that's the reason why I do things right away when a task is assigned to me. I tell myself that I'm doing something that will help others. When I get excited over something that really matters to me, I do what I can to either get or achieve it. As I said earlier, very few things excite me these days. That's why when something motivates me, I really go overboard.

This Always Gets Me Motivated To Work Out: Don't Quit By Bobby Caldwell

I first started working out when I was a freshman in high school. This was because I was kinda jealous of one of our classmates who had washboard abs. Apart from martial arts, I also lifted weights and did ab work. It wasn't hard to stay motivated at that time cause the fitness craze was on rise. One song that keeps me motivated to keepon exercising is "Don't Quit" by Bobby Caldwell.

I remember this song was used to promote some fitness instructor namedJake Steinfield who made it big during the body building boom.Anyway, since I realized that I was stocky and flabby, I needed totone myself a bit and get in shape. I had to admit, I got so into toit that if I miss a workout or a practice session at the dojo, I getirritated. Not only do I get into shape but it also helps me mentallyand emotionally because I get to take my aggression through workingout. I find that better than being grumpy which can alienate me fromother people.I still work out to this day.

Though I don't lift as heavily as I useto, I still make it a point to continue working out with just lightweights and some running. Someday I hope to get back to martial artsbecause I miss the sparring and discipline that I received back in theold days. To sum it up, I'll never quit exercising cause it makes mefeel good. If it's fees good, don't quit and you can't have a betterreason than that.

Using Sexy Models To Promote Anything And Everything: Stop Using Sex As Weapon By Pat Benatar

Back then, if you wanted to revealing images, you picked up a dirty magazines. Nowadays, publishers have a way of always inserting a model with curves in every publication. It's not just confined to adult mags but you them in every kind of print. From men's magazines and even gadget magazines, you'd see somebody modeling where you'd least expect it. I guess that's one way of enticing the readers to buy the magazine as well as the products being endorsed there. When I think about these kinds of advertising, the song "Stop Using Sex As A Weapon" by Pat Benatar comes to mind.

I have to admit I'm no angel but I am surprised at the things that come out every magazine these days. I guess the economy is really down in the dumps. They not only show provocative images, but they really push the boundaries as well. I guess companies will do anything to make a sale. Catch the eye and then catch cash in the wallet is the thing these days.

Well, I just hope people don't lose sight about what the message they want to get out there. I mean if I want to read about gadgets, then it's the gadget I want to read about. Most of the time, people just drool over the model and forget about the contents. I guess the publisher wins out on that's score. I just hope that they don't loose sight of what their message because that's what happens with this kind of advertising.

Holding On Till Help Arrives: Hold On! I'm Coming By Sam And Dave

Just when I thought I found a place where I might be able to generate some traffic and income, a big barrier just fell on me again. I won't go into details but it was big let down. I don't have resources for the requirements and even the free alternatives are out of my league. Still, I am determined to make some income online and I need to hold on just a little more till I get it right or till the answer comes. Sam And Dave's song "Hold On! I'm Coming" helps keep me going when I feel weary from these disappointments.

It's a known fact for all of us that life is hard and getting harder. We do what we can and it doesn't help that more crap gets thrown your way. Right now there are a lot of things that I want to do but don't have the dough to do it. Just when you thought there was a light at the end of the tunnel, it suddenly turns pitch black. I'm just trying hard to keep to my wits and think harder on how I'm going to get this thing to earn money.

As much as I'm down with another empty well, I can't linger on it. Got to get up and look for greener pastures. Things won't move unless you do and I guess I have to try harder. It's tough enough as it is but I don't want to give up. I just hope that I hold on long enough to see something good happen.

Magic Cure: Send Me An Angel By Real Life

Boy, just when you thought problem solved, another pop out of nowhere. It reminds of those horror flicks when you thought it was over then something grabs your leg. On top of that, there are still more problems piling up and the news alone stresses you out. This maybe wishful thinking, but sometimes I wish there was a magic spell somewhere that can make everything all right. Every time I wish that was true, the song "Send Me An Angel" by Cutting Crew comes to mind.

Although this song is about love, for me it's more about a quick solution to all the mayhem that life throws at you. It's bad enough that you give your all and it's not enough. To make it worse, more problems just keep coming just the zombies in the game "Plants Vs Zombies" and before you know it, they just ate your brain. I know life isn't fair but lately it's becoming more unfair than it already is. It really stings that you do all you can and no help comes cause it leaves one feeling abandoned and bitter.

Sadly, there will be no angel sent. The only thing you have to do is think hard and do it. You may win or you may lose but you're going down without a fight. Life sure is hard and we to be just a hard to keep up with it. Hopefully, an angel will come if we just hold on a bit

Another Song To Remind Me To Learn Where I Went Wrong: Cruising For Bruising By Basia

I guess one of the things that I keep blogging about is learning from past mistakes. It may be redundant at times but it also serves as a reminder for me to learn from the past or else I'm doomed to repeat it. Right now I'm desperate for another shot at getting back on track so I want to do things right. Otherwise, I might go down in flames again and that I don't want anymore. One song that reminds me to be careful lest I slip is Basia's "Cruising For A Bruising".

This millenium hasn't very good to me and as much as I don't want to whine and treasure the good times, there's been too much bad than good. I know this is a song about letting go but it is also about second chances and the need to know what went wrong. I don'r want to repeat my mistakes which why I have to tread carefully and learn why things went that way. Just like anyone else, I also want a second chance but until I learn from the past and shake off some habits, I might wind with another bummer.

I guess this is why I feel so tense lately. I'm getting older and everything is out of reach and it's bad enough that problems seemed to outnumber the solutions. Even if learning and understanding takes time which I'm running out of, I need to be patient and learn. Chances will always be there. I have to improve myself. If I don't it's just another cruise for a bruise.

When You Get It From Both Ends And Feel Groggy About It: Thorn In My Pride

I remember a few years ago when I got literally caught between a rock and a hard place. I won't the details but for some reason, there was time when I felt I was a in a middle of a very stressful situation between two sides. One side wanted me to do something but the other side told me not to do it and when caught between two bigwigs, I knew I was at the losing end of the stick again. I thought I would never get any relief from that awful predicament and when I think about it, I still get the chills. The song "Thorn In My Pride" by The Black Crowes reminds me of that dreadful period where I got from both ends.

What I can tell you is that this is what happens when two sides don't see eye to eye and your caught in the middle. The situation was bad in a sense that I didn't know how to follow which stressed me out physically as well as mentally. It was like tug of war with me as the rope. Thankfully, the situation was resolved, thus ending a really bad stalemate. I won't say how but one side won while the other's gone. I'm just thankful that I'm standing after that.

You know this isn't the first time I got caught in these crazy situations. This is what happens when there's lack of or no communications. The little people or innocent bystanders are the ones who gets and the worse part is that they didn't deserve it. Every time I think about it, I just shake my head and hope I don't go through that again. It really can be a thorn in anyone's pride.

Feels Like I'm In A Ghost Town: Ghost Town By Cheap Trick

Recently, I joined a new blog community and I liked it. I get to interact with other bloggers and traffic is starting to move again. But prior to this community, I joined two others during the summer and boy was I disappointed with those two. No matter how hard I try, I just wasn't making contact with anybody which really irked me. I felt that I was in a ghost town just like that song from the band Cheap Trick.

After finally getting my blog fixed and cleared of its attack status, the first thing I wanted to do was to generate traffic again and hopefully earn something on the side. This was difficult because the community that I joined suddenly closed down which presented a new obstacle for me. Things have been tough on all of us so I joined these two communities bragging that they are good for generating traffic. Alas, that was not the case for in one community, I kept having problems with logging in and nobody was returning my messages. The other was not user-friendly for every time I joined a group, my membership gets revoked because I failed to post anything on the so-called group talk even I keep clicking the button and nothing's happening and not matter how many messages I send to the members and administrators, I get no reply or help.

I like this new community that I have joined and the people are cool. I still have a long way to go with trying to generate income again. Still, I'm these other two community another try. I wish I can join another community where I ca n gain both traffic and some income as well cause I need to make ends meet. This doesn't mean that I got into blogging just to make money because it helps me gets some load of my chest and express what I feel at the end of the day. If these two won't I assist me, then I better quit cause I don't be in a ghost town anymore.

One Of My Favorite Romance Films: Someone To Watch Over Me By Sting

I'm not much on romance films but there's a hint of common sense then I might be motivated to watch it. I always believe that no matter how much in love you are, common should always be in the equation. You need it to know it if it is true love or just infatuation. Even if you don't get the girl in the end, the fact that you still kept your senses intact makes it worth it. One of my favorite romantic films was "Someone To Watch Over Me" where Sting sang title song which was originally done by Cole Porter.

The film was about a rich socialite who witness a murder and the policeman who was assigned to watch over her. Though they were to very different backgrounds, they were attracted to each other during the time he watched over her. This created a lot of complications for both of them as it was starting affect both their lives. Things came to a head when the killer targetted the cop's family to bring the girl out. In the end, the killers were killed and they went their separate ways with the consolation that they shared something special.

The reason why I liked this film is because the characters saw that eventually it had to come to an end. He still loved his family and she was only looking for someone to lean on. They shared something special and now it was time to move on. If that was done here, they would make it like they got together and that wasn't realistic. For me, letting go like that strengthens a relationship even if it means going on separate ways and that's why it's one of my favorite films.

Silence Here=Everything's Fine: Enjoy The Silence By Depeche Mode

A good day for me is when nothing's happening from morning to night. That may sound boring to some of you but when you get older and responsibilities start piling up, a moment of quiet, let alone a quite day is rare luxury. When things get so chaotic, it really turns your world upside down. You get stressed out and when there's more to come, you really wish for that quiet day because when nothing's happening then everything is cool. Enjoying a nice quiet day reminds of the song "Enjoy The Silence" by Depeche Mode.

When it's quiet around here, that means there's no trouble and everything's cool. You get to relax and your heart beat and blood pressure is stable since there's no stress. You get to organize your thoughts and be more focus since there's no rumble in jungle going on. Most important of all, your at peace with your environment. No need for artificial enhancements since everything's in order and there are no hassles. With a relaxing and serene atmosphere, you don't have to ask for anything more.

When you're in the real world, you don't have time for a lot of things and quiet moments are hard to find. Even when you go to bed at the end of the day, your minds in chaos about the things you need to do. Then there's everyday problems that everybody faces in the real world and it's becoming a really hard world to live in where you struggle to get by. That's why for me, there's nothing like a nice quiet day. I enjoy the silence for as long as I can for you'll never know when you'll have another.
