manila traffic  
Everytime i'm on the road, whether i'm in the backseat or in the passenger seat, i like to look out my window. Watching the cars on the road, the people crossing the street, and the changine traffic lights is so relaxing - contrary to popular belief. I like traffic, at least when i'm not driving. (As if i drive, haha) I find myself contemplating on matters of life, love, and everything else in between. 

A woman crosses the street hurriedly, an umbrella in hand and a basket of her pamalengke in the other; what could she possible by thinking? Of the meal she has to cook for her five children?

A young lady clad in all white carries a bundle of textbooks - could she be thinking about college, her future career, her schoolwork?

I'm no mind reader, but watching these people, these everyday Filipinos go about their businesses while i go about mine makes me wonder just what goes on in their minds. We all lead different lives, we all have different goals, different expectations, different dreams. But we all live one life.

Yesterday is over, that date in the calendar hanging in your room can be crossed out. July 29 2008 will never happen again in history, and the things i did today, belong to today. I guess one can never really do much, but live their life day to day. Minute per minute. Because if you i keep thinking about the future, college, the test tomorrow, who i texted yesterday, what will happen to now?
