everything happens for a reason

Tom never saw Autumn coming his way because he’s so busy thinking about (and dealing with) Summer. I just hope that you’re done with your Summer and welcome me as your Autumn now, Macky. heehee

After all the events that happened, this becomes my favorite scene in the movie 500 days of Summer:

Girl at Interview: Have I seen you before?
Tom: Me? I don’t think so.
Girl at Interview: Do you ever go to Angela’s Plaza?
Tom: Yes… That’s like my favorite spot in the city.
Girl at Interview: Yeah, except for the parking lots.
Tom: Yeah, yeah I agree.
Girl at Interview: Yeah, yeah I think I’ve seen you there.
Tom: Really?
Girl at Interview: Yeah…
Tom: I haven’t seen you?
Girl at Interview: You must not have been looking…
Tom: …

After the Baccalaureate mass yesterday, my friends greeted my crush through the announcer in front of the field, letting the 6,000+ UST batch 2010 candidates for graduation to hear “me” profess my feelings to my crush who we’ll just call Macky here. The message goes like this:

Macky ———,

crush na crush talaga kita.

Shayne ——–

at tsaka ikaw rin, Emil ———–

from Shayne of 4JRN1

The moment I heard my crush’s name, I wondered who is it. After hearing my name as the signee, I hurriedly grabbed my red envelope and covered my blushing face and to sheer away from the teasing crowd who thinks that I am really the one who professed my feelings.

Actually, just when the message happened, I am also considering of greeting Macky but not putting my name as the signee. If I were the one who did it, of course I’d like to keep my anonymity so as to keep Macky searching where the smoke comes. hahaha But when I heard the message, I never got mad of Lian for doing it but instead, considered it as one of the most embarassing yet wonderful and crazy moments I ever had.

Going back to the quote from the movie 500 days of Summer, I quoted this because in Macky’s profile, he said: patiently waiting for Autumn. So, what I did after last night’s embarassment/happy moment + a photo op with Macky himself, courtesy of Lian of course, I scanned the quotes of the movie and found this scene very appealing.

Well, I can relate to this scene because I met Macky one day in my first year of college along the street of Blumentritt while waiting for the passengers to fill the jeepney we are into. The first time I saw him, it was like magic. I still don’t know his name then but I know that from that moment, he would be someone special to me. And some random times, we get to be in the same jeep again and agan. I get to see him perform live in stage in our 2nd year days when our professor asked us to watch the Rizal play the Communication Arts prepared, by that time, I eagerly watched him perform as one of the most valuable characters in the play, Padre Florentino. Right then and there, I still don’t know his name.

On third year, we become busy with most of the school stuff. I become busy with achieving my goal: to have a macbook. My friends are busy dealing with their school stuffs, just like me, but only different because they dazzle their school stuffs by thinking and checking out the latest buzz about their college crushes. By that time, I have totally forgotten him, the tall, slender boy with white complexion and well elaborated adam’s apple. Ah. But every once in a while, when I get to see him, my life starts to have more color than the usual.

On fourth year, the final year and the final chance to get to see him, and bump into him along the corridors, along the Dapitan streets and last chance to be in the same jeep with him every moment the hands of fate decides to side by me whenever I need it. Oh hai. At last, this last year, I finally get to know his name. Thanks to connections. I have a friend who have a crush on a CA major, whois apparently a classmate of Macky, so then I scanned his profile friends, looked for that familiar face and WOOOP YOU GO! I found the pot of gold! I finally know his name. And from then on, I started to get more interested with him. I started to be more curious about him. I started to be one of his online stalkers, oh slash that, I started to become a researcher who passionately digs information about him.

Yes. it is indeed true. Once you get to know a person’s name, everything will change in a blink of an eye. Everything happens for a reason. I got fed up with hoping and trying to make a move. I just hope that I’m eyeing at the right person this time.
