D’Sound - Real Name
Still dwindling with the curse of neutrality, bound by the chains of mediocrity, enslaved by the tormenting fear that— words spoken, peace shattered, ripples made— could turn out to be treacherous, and thus transform to wound the author with its own actions. And thus a cutting blade a piercing shrapnel, or an irreversible crease it may turn out to be in...
Loneliness does not come from having no people around one, but from being unable...– Carl Jung (via laeticia) (That makes a lot of sense. Hm.)
Professor: What happens to the money when the creditor refuses to accept the payment from the debtor?
Me: It stays with him.
Professor: Yes. And he incurs interest because it is assumed that...?
Me: *mumbles incoherent statements* ...?
Professor: What happens with the money?
Me: ...Uh, it stays with him??
Professor: Again, yes it stays with him. But what would he do with it? He'd count the money every night and check if it's still complete? He'd weigh the money and figure out how heavy 1M pesos is? What is the most practical thing that X can do with the money when it remains with him?
Me: Uhm... put it in a bank?
(Hello to me and my sabaw-ness. Hahaha! Apparently, the most practical assumption is that he'd spend it. Oh, but... but... but I would put it in a bank because it's not mine anymore! Ang bait ko lang. Ako na ang inosente. Hahahahahaha! *I can't exactly recall how it went though. I was scared out of my wits to even remember everything.* HAHA.)
30 posts in 30 days—one of the easiest ways to break through a writer’s block in an age where reblogging and picture-inspired posts infest the mainstream net scheme, and there’s clearly a lack of more substantive and thought-provoking entries online. That is not to say that I don’t enjoy my fair share of reblogged and a-picture-says-a-thousand-words entries, mind you. So,...
mengsales: pacific18: INSTANT REBLOG! NEXT UP: GREENHILLS! :P At dahil gaya-gaya ako, I’ll reblog as well. :)) And let me just say that the highlight of the day was getting to eat that Almond Roca Cheesecake from Starbucks which tasted like heaven! Kidding! Although the cheesecake was really great, the day was awesome because I spent time with some of the...
To find that one thing-or perhaps things-that would engulf me with happiness and passion is still my goal to this date. It has been, still is and will always be until I finally say “yatto mitsukettaaaaa!”* to that pot of gold. Superficiality aside, I secretly search for that elusive rainbow behind every conversation and opportunity that I stumble upon in this 20-year journey of life...
Random: When I’m extremely stressed, I always get the urge to engage myself in an activity that provides a great adrenaline rush. I never get to do them in reality but I wish I could. At the top of my list are drag racing and firing a gun in a shooting range. Either that or I sleep. My rebellious streak (though perfectly tamed and in-check) is manifested in my desire to wear a chain...
People say that when a person spaces out, they end up killing brain cells. With the amount of time I spent spacing out due to stress and what have you, I wonder how many brain cells I have already killed… Does that make me a murderer? Haha. (WHUT? Talk about ka-sabawan and ka-sabogan.) Bye! I will study and drive this sabaw-ness away. : Sidenote: Only mitzyred gets a...
