They say a good love is one that sits you down, gives you a drink of water, and pats you on top of the head. But I say a good love is one that casts you into the wind, sets you ablaze, makes you burn through the skies and ignite the night like a phoenix; the kind that cuts you loose like a wildfire and you can’t stop running simply because you keep on burning everything that you touch! I say that’s a good love; one that burns and flies, and you run with it!

The problem about cutting out the best of your heart and giving it to people, is that 1. It hurts to do that; and 2. You never know if they are going to throw it away or not. But then you should still do it. Because any other way is cowardice. At the end of the day, it’s about being brave and we are only haunted by the ghosts that we trap within ourselves; we are not haunted by the ghosts that we let out. We are haunted by the ghosts that we cover and hide. So you let those ghosts out in that best piece of your heart that you give to someone. And if the other person throws it away? Or doesn’t want it to begin with? Someone else will come along one day, cut out from his/her heart that exact same jagged shape that you cut out of your own heart, and make their piece of heart fit into the rest of yours. Wait for that person. And you can fill their missing piece with your soul.

"Sustainability is an issue of equity; inter-generational equity, that is, that what we have today will be available to the future. But this is sustainablity from a resource perspective. We also have to look at sustainability from a process perspective. To be truly sustainable, we must ensure that what we do today would still enable the Earth’s processes to continue in the future. What good would resources be if our planet is no longer functioning properly?"

- Dr. Srikantha Herath, United Nations University

It’s always fun listening to Dr. Herath. You either think he’s brilliant or he’s crazy. Whatever the case, his ideas are revolutionary. Anyway, sabi ko na nga ba, I shouldn’t aim for UNU at this time yet. Sabi ni Dr. Herath, he doesn’t recommend young people going there dahil kailangan pa raw ng maraming experience at specialization. Dun kasi sa MS Sustainability program nila, trans-discipinary ang approach. Tingin ko maganda namang fit sa akin yun dahil I’ve always been interested in social and technical aspects of problems.

A saying goes, “The most valuable guys are those who can integrate everything to come up with a holistic solution to problems.” But it is also generally agreed upon that a person who knows a little bit of everything, a jack-of-all-trades, never really makes a name for himself. Kailangan talaga ng specialization.

O well. Dilemmas. Feb. 26 na ang deadline ng application sa UNU. I think mas ok yung PhD in Sustainability kaysa MS in Sustainability. So ma-specialize muna ako sa MS. Kaso baka by the time na mag-aapply na ako for UNU, baka hindi na si Dr. Herath yung mag-i-screen ng applicants. Sayang yung chance. Ooohh. I’m going around in circles arguing with myself.

Incomplete

I feel my body
From scalp to sole
Nothing seems to be missing
Yes, outside I am whole.

But tell me,
Did you take a rib or two
When you left me
All alone without a clue?

My breath falls short although I gasp
As if the wind is knocked out of me
The howling drowns my silent sobs
As my pillow is drenched in midnight memory.

Flashbacks loop in my restless mind
Searching for that moment
When what seemed to be eternal sunshine
Shattered into stormy fragments.

I feel my body from head to toe
Nothing more, nothing less
But here I lie, broken and blue
A man who’s incomplete without you.
