Opinion: (Pro) Duterte’s 2022 campaign

Posted in politics, Random, Special posts by Fated Blue on February 10, 2020

I’ve been keeping tabs on local news pages, as well groups with political themes and topics. There are still many supporters, but the promise of another pro Duterte presidency grows weaker everyday.

Local news channel TV5 has always been in full support of the admin since the elections, yet it’s slowly changed sides after Ferdinand Marcos was buried as a hero. Now, the news page has become as anti as it could be.

Even their usual pro Duterte followers have shown signs of dissent. Their daily news about what the president says or does are no longer dominated with hearts and smiling faces, but of anger and tears.

TV5 still hates Leni, though, so you can applaud their consistency at least.

There have also been a steady rise of anti-admin pages lately, or perhaps I’m only exposed to them because my friends are mostly anti (or become one).

Bagong Dekada. Bagong Ikaw.

Posted in life, Special posts by Fated Blue on December 10, 2019

Malapit na namang matapos ang isang dekada. Kung di mo pa ginagawa, bitawan mo na.

Mahirap magdala ng mabigat na bagahe na hindi mo naman napapakinabangan lalo na at matagal nang nawala yung tunay nitong may ari.

Sa pagpasok ng bagong taon, travel light nalang tayo.

Puwede na ang backpack. Libre pa ang carry-on.

Mas masayang bumiyahe kung wala kang masyadong bitbit at maluwag mong nagagawa ang lahat ng gusto mo dahil magaan ang pakiramdam mo.

Huwag mo tularan yung mga taong kailangan dala ang buong bahay tuwing may pupuntahan.

Kung ang dala mo ay magpapaalala lang sa’yo ng parte ng buhay mo na nais mo nang kalimutan, bakit bumiyahe ka pa?

Random thoughts re: Koi Wa Ameagari no You ni

Posted in Special posts by Fated Blue on November 18, 2019

There’s a dilemma in meeting someone you end up falling for, but they’re either too old or too young for you.

For one, you get to know each other and find each other’s company to be something to look forward to everyday.

However, you both know the relationship you have can’t go beyond what it already is: Casual and friendly.

It’s like the forbidden fruit, except even though you both didn’t eat it, you still know how good it would have tasted.

So, you both wonder if the two of you would have been happier if you just never met in the first place.

Not knowing what you missed out on holds the exact same meaning as “ignorance is bliss,” and it hurts knowing what prevented the two of you from being together was just a gap between two numbers.

Love may be transcendental, but it’s still bound by society’s invisible chains.

=============

This was inspired by Aimer’s Ref:rain. I haven’t watched the series or movie yet, but the plot synopsis and song meaning made me write this one down.

I’m no longer young, but I still have youth. I’m a year closer to death, and I’ve never felt more alive. (more…)

A recurring jolt of pain at the center of my chest

Posted in life, Special posts, Uncategorized by Fated Blue on September 22, 2019

Sometimes…

When I’m alone, somehow thoughts of a “special” someone crash open the gates of my otherwise barricaded subconsciousness. And my thoughts tell me that she’s out there, waiting for something extraordinary to happen to her.

And while she waits, she’ll suffer on the inside as she stays strong on the outside, holding everyone’s shit together like they’re hers.

This happens a lot at night, even more when no one’s at home, especially when I’m listening to some sad Japanese songs during the day.

I feel like she’s waiting for me, and that I should go to her.

…and listening to Aimer makes me feel like she’s in Japan.

I’m just…bothered. I’m almost 30 years old as of this writing (literally three days away), and I’m having an existential crisis manifesting itself as an emotional longing for someone with a similar fate, with the same playing cards I have in life.

Is this temporary? Is this triggered by the breaking of the 30-year barrier? Is this thought valid both mentally and emotionally?

I don’t know. All I know is, right now I feel like she’s waiting for me, and my heart longs for her.

Game of Thrones Epilogue: Sandor Clegane and Sansa Stark

Posted in entertainment, Special posts by Fated Blue on May 23, 2019

(So Game of Thrones finally concluded. I’ve got a lot to say about it, but I am at least satisfied with how they did the third part of the episode especially since it involved Sansa being Queen in the North. However, I think they did Sandor wrong by just killing him with his brother. I’m a SanSan fanatic by the way, so understand where my bias is coming from.

With that said, I imagined a short story of how Sandor survived Kingslanding and became Sansa’s Lord Commander of the Queensguard. Brienne is no longer guarding Sansa, so it would make sense for the Hound to become her personal bodyguard.

This epilogue also serves to tell us the purpose of Arya’s white horse. I mean, what the hell was that for, right?

Leave your comments below and tell me what you think. I’m by no means a storyteller or a fan fiction artist. I just like SanSan.)

Thoughts about the MCU after Infinity Wars

Posted in entertainment, Random, Special posts by Fated Blue on May 3, 2018

Watched one of Pewd’s recent videos and he made a commentary on the MCU.

Pewds said it’s unbelievable that after almost 20 films, people are still getting excited over a new movie or a new character reveal. It’s unbelievable how people don’t notice that almost every movie is just a reskin of the previous ones. He is also frustrated how it affects the number of films he could watch during its screening, with almost every cinema showing just one movie for two weeks, forcing “other” fans to wait for the Blu Ray release of these other films.

And I agree.
