It's Really Been a While

SpeechlessSpeechless by Hannah Harrington
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I laughed. Stunned. Amazed. Shocked. Surprised. Humoured.

There even some part when I read it, it just takes me back all the way to high school. And some freshman year in college.

Overall, I love it. Looking forward to Harrington's next project.

 Yeah. I haven't finished reading a single book in more than 6 months! The reason would be none other than being busy with studio and stuffs.

I gotta admit. I really enjoyed reading this one. Though it falls on high school romance genre but I still enjoy it anyway. Not in the mood to read heavy materials anyway. But I'm not in the mood to read manga too. Oh, I just got myself the final instalment of Maid Maiden by Kaoru. I know. I know. I'm over 20 and I still read these things. Can't help it! I'm a big fan of Kaoru-sama since high school!

Still, I don't really know how to write a book review (Lie. Of course I know how to. I did some before. Again, just not in the mood too. Haha. Please bear with me.) but overall the book really takes me back to high school. I wonder if I didn't go down to the same resolution as Chelsea when the incident back in high school happened. I'm pretty sure things would turn out differently. If I could just talk things out with that guy, things won't be dragged for over 7 years. Well, I'm glad that chapter has ended.

Back to the book, there's this one part, if I may, 

"As far as silences go, it is pretty's the kind of quiet shared between two people who don't feel the desperate to fill every second with the sound of their own voices."  

Someone once told me that when you are able to be with another person in a same room without having need to talk to each other not because you don't want to or you don't feel like you have to entertain that person with any sort of things, that you're okay or more than fine just to sit and not talking, it means that you have reached a level that you're comfortable with that person.

Personally, I only have like 1 person like that in my life. Apart of my family members. For that matter, it also means that I trust that person enough. Enough to tell just about anything. Some people may be able to reach a point that they're finally comfortable with another person easily, but for me it's nothing like that. Though with some people that I met for the first time I knew right away we're gonna be close friends, those are exceptional. But most of the time, it took me a while to get used to people. Yeah. Yeah. I am easy going and literally intentionally talk to strangers at Starbucks especially at the airports, but my point is it's not easy for me to reach that level of comfortable with just anyone and I believe most people like that, am I right?

“You can be surrounded by people and still be lonely. You can be the most popular person in school, envied by every girl and wanted by every boy, and still feel completely worthless. The world can be laid at your feet and you can still not know what you want from it.”

Though in my case, it's a bit different but I still can relate to that kind of situation. We often hear  "you can't have it all," but when it's really happening and we can actually have it all, questions like "do we really want to have it all?" pops in and then you just don't know what to do. 

Anyway, as time passes by, whether we want it or not, it's already the end of 5th week. One more week and it's gonna be mid term week. So, guys! Take good care of yourselves and let's study well for the tests.

I'll see you guys next entry.
