WOW! ANOTHER ONE? I AM AWED!

I was in the middle of writing my response to manvsloneliness‘s nomination and I was given another!

Thanks, Cosmic Explorer ! I am giggling with sheer delight at the amount of recognition you guys are giving me. Let’s hope me and my chocolates do not disappoint.

amazing

I shall get down to business and answer the questions.

  1. What is your idea on true love?

It is loyal. Love is love when you stay despite and in spite of all the whirlwind of emotions. Bow.

  1. What is easier? To love or to be loved?

Another tough question. Why do you guys give such hard questions? Both are not easy. But to quote from John Green, “We love those who cannot love us back because unrequited love is much easier to move on from than once-requited love.” That response may change, soon. I think. Haha!

  1. Do you believe that we only have one life or do you believe in reincarnation?

I think that there is only one life. The belief of reincarnation, for me, is a metaphor used that in this ONE life we have, we will be reborn in so many ways.

  1. What do you think is the meaning of life?

Now I see why your site is Cosmic. Your questions are of worldly stuff and very thoughtful ideas. I could very much say what my view on life is, but then again, I am not one to give straightforward answers to matters like love, life, and the universe. Haha! But life is like a box of chocolates! You never know what you’re going to get! Life is unpredictable and what we make of it. It is a tale told by an idiot. It is a word people spend their whole life finding meaning to but I know I won’t. I’d simply live my life. I would not try to understand it.

  1. Are you the same person you were five years ago?

No, I am not. I am, in every way just like I have been – but better. Stupider. Wiser. Funnier. Luckier. Smarter. Bolder. And yes, cooler!

  1. How do you know you are not dreaming right now?

I am. And the good part of it is, I know I am.

  1. What is the best dream you had and that you want it to come true?

Hmmm… I do not remember any of my dreams, sadly. But if were talking about dreams in a ‘goal’ kind of sense, I want my friends, family and enemies to reach their goals, in life. That my friends and family reach them through hard work and constant determination and faith. That my enemies reach theirs with more barriers than the stars up in the heavens!

  1. If you could time travel, where would you go? To the future or to the past? 

Easy! The future! I would go back to the future! Hahaha.

  1. If you could be any super hero or any famous person (dead or alive) for a day, who would you choose?

I choose you! Captain Jack Sparrow! Your life at sea goes beyond compare! Haha! Or if not, Monkey D. Luffy is another equal alternative. And yes, I am aware they are not superheroes. But they are famous are they not?

  1. If you could choose to change something about this world, what would it be?

The negativity, deception, and the violence. I know biases will always be present. But one can hope, right?

Same questions apply as to my previous post. (I had no time to write another one!)

  1. If you were to live another person’s life, whose would it be and why?
  2. Favorite film of any genre and why.
  3. Musician or lyricist? Which would you prefer?
  4. What super power would you choose to have?
  5. What songs and/or which singers are in your playlist?
  6. What do you think is the greatest weakness of mankind?
  7. In a word, describe my blog and say why.
  8. Can you please critique any or one of my posts and tell me how I might be able to improve if I do ever feel like writing one like is some time soon?
  9. If I had amnesia, how would you make me remember you? Assume that we have known each other for as long as necessary.
  10. If everything starts with a lie, what yours?

Nominees! Nominees! Nominees! I am looking forward to your responses.

  1. Congrats! Glad to see you continuing to be recognized for your talent. I don’t want to double dip awards as it is an honor to be nominated even once, but I like your questions so I’ll answer them here, keep the focus on you.
    If you were to live another person’s life, whose would it be and why?
    Anthony Bourdain, HANDS DOWN. First of all his current life is INCREDIBLE. Traveling the world, writing books, having an incredible show that gets the inside look at fascinating countries. But his origin story is even more incredible. Life as a chef. The teetering brink of destruction. He should be dead with all the drinking and drugs and he even mentioned contemplating driving off a cliff. His journey is so enviable. Such extremes and what great success from it.
    Favorite film of any genre and why.
    Could never answer that!
    Musician or lyricist? Which would you prefer?
    I’d rather be a musician if I could. Lyrics are too much like poems.
    What super power would you choose to have?
    Flight, easily. With a flight suit and helmet because of all the bugs that will definitely fly into my face.
    What songs and/or which singers are in your playlist?
    Separate post for another day!
    What do you think is the greatest weakness of mankind?
    The inability to see beyond our own circles. If it doesn’t affect you, your friends and family, or maybe one other layer of association, you stop caring about it as a problem.
    In a word, describe my blog and say why.
    Youth. I can feel your youth in your writing and it’s fascinating. I don’t want to give you any advice, I don’t want to steer or direct you, I just want to watch what happens because I know you have plenty of time left for things to happen in.
    Can you please critique any or one of my posts and tell me how I might be able to improve if I do ever feel like writing one like is some time soon?
    All I can say is, remember your youth. You’ve experienced a lot and have the self-awareness to condense that into your wisdom. But remember your youth. You can’t sell me on world-weariness just yet.
    If I had amnesia, how would you make me remember you? Assume that we have known each other for as long as necessary.
    Uhm…(500) Days of Summer and late night comment exchanges about food.
    If everything starts with a lie, what yours?
    I’m not looking for love at every waking moment.

    1. Whooooa! This, by far, is the longest and greatest comment in my blog. Wow! Thank you! I am almost tempted to respond via email. LoL.
      Anthony Bourdain, huh. Amazing choice! That’d be awesome! A travelling chef!
      Too many to mention? Or none at all?
      Haha. I see. You’d be an amazing lyricist though.
      So, you play instruments (I might have forgotten, did you mention it before? Sorry …)
      Flight! Haha! Iron Man suit ! Just because the bugs will stick to leather jumpsuits! LoL.
      Cool! I am still waiting. Haha.
      You actually have a good point there. We are often so boxed up in our own little lives we forget there are others. That’s good food for thought for me today. Thanks!
      Wow! Whoooa! Really? Great! You’re the second person to say so about my writing. I am honored. It’s fine if you won’t. I’d explore. Haha! And I don’t particularly listen to advise most of the time, anyway. 😉
      Maybe I have. But I still yearn for more. Wanderlust. Your comment certainly will be remembered. It is why I love The Little Prince so much. It has taught me, at a very young age, that I should not forget it.
      Hmm… Good to know. Just say social media is the devil. Hahaha!
      Nice finish, dude! One day, yes. You won’t.
      She’ll be on your bed, snoring. LoL.

      1. You should read some of Bourdain’s books. Kitchen Confidential was great and so was Medium Raw. And his comic book series Get Jiro is great because I love sushi and food culture and it makes fun of both so well.
        I do not play any musical instruments. That’s why if I could, I’d be a musician. Hahah. I’d want to learn trumpet. Jazz trumpet. Like Chris Botti or Chuck Mangione.
        The Playlist post is on my reserve list of backup topics in case I ever hit writer’s block. I have so much on that list I think I’ll be safe for a while. Hahah.
        I’ll be snoring. If we both snore we’ll never get any sleep. Hahah.

        1. I actually have a copy of KC. Chris Botti! My oh my! I would not have known him if I weren’t such a stalker of Katharine McPhee before (even now, haha). Awesome taste in music genre. Not a lot of men these days listen to songs like that anymore. I might be evil but I hope you get the WB disease soon. LoL!
          Meh. No worries. You could both snore. The snoring couple! Bwahahaha!

          1. I actually saw Katherine McPhee sing ‘I’ve Got You Under My Skin’ with Chris Botti! He does a concert in my area every year and I always buy a ticket. It’s just so smooth and sophisticated and cool. Definitely one of my defining music faves. If not for WB, maybe the daily prompt will help you out. Anything to do with sound or music and I’ll write up those playlists for you. Hahah.

          2. You were there!????! Whaaat?!!! I.AM.JEALOUS. T.T
            Yes, indeed. I love jazz music, I grew up to it. Wow! I am smiling here in the jeepney … you saw it.. Wow! Hearing them and watching them on the screen gave me chills. How much more for the actual audience! You are very lucky to have heard Katharine’s voice in person! Haha!
            That’s good to know. Hey, wordpress! HELP ME OUT HERE! A DAILY PROMPT ON SOUND OR MUSIC PLEASE! ASAP! HAHA.

          3. Yep! I’ve seen a lot of great special guests because he never announces who he’ll tour with or bring in. My favorite collaborations he’s done have been with Sting (he used to be a soloist for Sting on tour, that’s how he started and why they’re so close). Like ‘Wee Small Hours of the Morning’ and ‘My Funny Valentine’ with Chris Botti and Sting are my favorites. Unfortunately never saw him though. Today was ‘hike’. I couldn’t even stretch that to be about music if I tried! Hahah.

          4. Yes. I watch a lot of videos on him online and he does not say who he is bringing as a guest indeed.
            Oh, I see. Gotta listen to that.
            Wordpress needs to help me on this one. LoL.
