Date a GIRL who READS

“You should date a girl who reads.
Date a girl who reads. Date a girl who spends her money on books instead of clothes, who has problems with closet space because she has too many books. Date a girl who has a list of books she wants to read, who has had a library card since she was twelve.

Find a girl who reads. You’ll know that she does because she will always have an unread book in her bag. She’s the one lovingly looking over the shelves in the bookstore, the one who quietly cries out when she has found the book she wants. You see that weird chick sniffing the pages of an old book in a secondhand book shop? That’s the reader. They can never resist smelling the pages, especially when they are yellow and worn.

She’s the girl reading while waiting in that coffee shop down the street. If you take a peek at her mug, the non-dairy creamer is floating on top because she’s kind of engrossed already. Lost in a world of the author’s making. Sit down. She might give you a glare, as most girls who read do not like to be interrupted. Ask her if she likes the book.

Buy her another cup of coffee.

Let her know what you really think of Murakami. See if she got through the first chapter of Fellowship. Understand that if she says she understood James Joyce’s Ulysses she’s just saying that to sound intelligent. Ask her if she loves Alice or she would like to be Alice.

It’s easy to date a girl who reads. Give her books for her birthday, for Christmas, for anniversaries. Give her the gift of words, in poetry and in song. Give her Neruda, Pound, Sexton, Cummings. Let her know that you understand that words are love. Understand that she knows the difference between books and reality but by god, she’s going to try to make her life a little like her favorite book. It will never be your fault if she does.

She has to give it a shot somehow.

Lie to her. If she understands syntax, she will understand your need to lie. Behind words are other things: motivation, value, nuance, dialogue. It will not be the end of the world.

Fail her. Because a girl who reads knows that failure always leads up to the climax. Because girls who read understand that all things must come to end, but that you can always write a sequel. That you can begin again and again and still be the hero. That life is meant to have a villain or two.

Why be frightened of everything that you are not? Girls who read understand that people, like characters, develop. Except in the Twilight series.

If you find a girl who reads, keep her close. When you find her up at 2 AM clutching a book to her chest and weeping, make her a cup of tea and hold her. You may lose her for a couple of hours but she will always come back to you. She’ll talk as if the characters in the book are real, because for a while, they always are.

You will propose on a hot air balloon. Or during a rock concert. Or very casually next time she’s sick. Over Skype.

You will smile so hard you will wonder why your heart hasn’t burst and bled out all over your chest yet. You will write the story of your lives, have kids with strange names and even stranger tastes. She will introduce your children to the Cat in the Hat and Aslan, maybe in the same day. You will walk the winters of your old age together and she will recite Keats under her breath while you shake the snow off your boots.

Date a girl who reads because you deserve it. You deserve a girl who can give you the most colorful life imaginable. If you can only give her monotony, and stale hours and half-baked proposals, then you’re better off alone. If you want the world and the worlds beyond it, date a girl who reads.

Or better yet, date a girl who writes.”

If you find a girl that is willing to go through hell just to keep the relationship going, you really shouldn’t take her love for granted.

Going through hell for someone and in return being taken for granted was the most painful thing I’ve ever experienced. Never. Again.

Di ko akalain na ako pala ang leading sa ranking naming mga teacher applicants. Ang saya nito. Pero may English Proficiency Test pa bukas. I have to do my best, kelangan kong intindihin at wag bastahin ang pagsasagot sa bawat categories and essays. A 9.75 over 15 is not acceptable anymore kahit passed naman, that was my recent grade. I have to top it up tomorrow, to ensure my position in the ranking. I so need to have an item, I wanna be able to help our family financially. I can’t always be a volunteer. I need to be in the regular position immediately. God guide me, open up my mind, enlighten it so that I can think and concentrate properly for tomorrow’s exam.

Ngayon lang ako magmumura, sa sobrang inis. Alam niyo yung mga taong mahilig magpahirap sa kapwa niya? grabe bwisit, sobra na. HIrap na kaming mga aplikanteng guro. Nakapagdemo at interview na kami, na sa panig naming mga lumang aplikante ay napakadaya, nakarank na kami, tapos pinagdemo ulit kami tapos biglang nagpatawag ng pagpupulong kahapon at sinabing uulitin daw namin ULIT ang interview at demo sa Division. Bale void na daw yung una naming ginawa. PUTRES na yan. Di ba nila alam ang hirap at pagod namin, bukod dun, gastos pa at oras. Ang daming oras na nasayang para dun. Tapos uulitin lang palang lahat. Bakit di na lang sinabi nung umpisa pa lang na sa DIVISION pala ang gusto at hindi by District. Mga Shit heads yata kayo e, ang iniisip niyo lang e yung gusto ninyo. Di manlang ninyo naisip na sobra sobra na ang pagod at sakripisyo namin. SHIT talaga! TATLONG BESES na kaming mga lumang aplikanteng uulit sa proseso. Nakakagalit at nakakapanghina na ng loob. Sana kayanin pa namin ito. Putek ang masaklap pa nga pala e. ON THE SPOT daw yun, ibig sabihin sa mismong araw na yun kami bubunot ng asignatura at paksa. Anong akala ninyo samin ENSAYKLOPIDYA? (encyclopedia)na alam lahat? mga tsong! di din kami computers na pag hinanapan ninyo ng sagot e maibibigay agad sa inyo! di bale sana kung sinabihan niyo kami ng matagal na e, nakapag-aral sana kami. Mabuti yung mga nagtuturo sa gr.1-6 medyo alam na nila yun. E paano naman kami na kindergarten ang tinuturuan, at yung ibang aplikante naman e wala pang karanasan sa pagtuturo. NGARAG na ang utak namin. Di lang yan ang iniintindi namin, paano naman ang personal naming buhay. Ang gusto ninyo kayo lang ang ipaprayoridad! MALI yun! matuto naman kayong kumapa sa pinamumunuan ninyo! Katakot takot na gastos na. butas na butas ang bulsa namin. masasakit na ang mata at kamay, lalong lalo na ang utak namin.
