When people ask me to define love, I say, "Love is like handing someone a gun, having them point it at your heart, and trusting them to never pull the trigger." (Sponge Bob)

When they ask me why I laugh at my mistakes and even write them with pride in my blogs, I say, "I'm not crazy. I just don't give a damn!" (Daffy Duck)

When one time I was conducting a group activity, a student asked what road sign I love the most, I said, "I like dead end signs. I think they're kind. They at least have the decency to let you know you're going nowhere…" (Bugs Bunny)

And when for the nth time a friend would ask me what do I get from writing, I'm not even sure if there are good old souls out there visiting my site, I just smile and say, "Kung gusto mong maging manunulat, eh di magsulat ka. Simple." (Bob Ong)

And last night when Eva said she wants to quit from her work because nobody believes in her, her boss got mad at her, she doesn't even have friends at her agency, and she's crying like hell, I said, "Either you stay to prove your worth or you quit and just show them you're a loser, you have to strive for your happiness." (MY original)

My CHOICES: I remained believing in love. I continued spicing up my mistakes and rewriting my life, accepting failure but keep on dreaming until words would fade into thin air.

Leo Buscaglia Collection

Got so sentimental upon remembering an old friend today because of Leo Buscaglia, college days and autumn leaves. So I browsed over Buscaglia's page and saw an array of books, some I have read but don't have a personal copy. My passion for reading in college was a bit frustrating because I need to wait a long while just to borrow the best sellers from the university library. Or I'll just be contented in waiting for my boardmate to finish what she was reading before I'll get my hands on a book.

After browsing the net, I have arrived to a new list of best buy books for the summer, all by Leo Buscaglia. Hopefully I will havethe luxury of time to read some and ofc ourse, will have the money to buy some more. Ooooopssss... I mean, hope my brother would grab these books for me:

1. Born for Love
2. Love
3. Leo Buscaglia's Love Cookbook
4. The Fall of Freddie the Leaf
5. Seven Stories of Christmas Love (recommended for the summer!)
6. Bus 9 to Paradise
7. The Disabled and Their Parents
8. Papa, My Father
9. A Memory for Tino
10. Personhood
11. The Way of the Bull
12. Because I am Human

Oh well, my list is very Guidance Counselor. Hope you will enjoy the books as much as I imagine myself enjoying them.
