My Kernie's back!
But the truth is they won't.
Since Kernan's accident, I've realized once again how easy it is for you to lose the people you love in an instant. Whether it be a sudden break up or an inevitable permanent separation, it only takes a few seconds to take all that love away.
Loss is something that won't ever be easy to cope with. I'm just so happy and grateful I don't have to go through that again.
A lot of things make us lose sight of the people and things that do matter in life. Work almost always drives our life, putting everyone and everything else at the back seat waiting for when we'll finally have time.
It's sad because when that moment of loss finally hits you in the heart, you won't wish you logged in extra time at work and earned that extra pay. Rather you'd give anything just to have a chance to spend more time and give more love to that person over again.
Kernan and I have always exerted extra effort to make time for each other despite our hectic schedules. We never know when we'll be away from each other for long periods of time so we try to go out as much as we can even if it means just going to the mall to catch the last full show. We go out for dinner and try to eat at a new restaurant each time. We've got a whole lot of activities lined up, things we've always wanted to do but just haven't gotten to:
- go to Boracay or Palawan together
- wall climbing
- biking at Luneta Park (yeah, we can be jologs sometimes)
- fly to hongkong together
Some of these may be surprisingly simple but we really haven't made the time yet to do just one. I don't want to wake up one day and realize that we've spent all our lives working that we haven't even done one of these. And I intend for us to place a check mark on each one and add new things on our to do list soon.
For now, we'll stick to the movies.
Bonky, Kernie and Jayme at Pancake House in Gateway before watching D' Anothers
Kernie, in a streak of ka-jologan and perhaps a little bit of curiosity, wanted to watch the D' Anothers. I vehemently refused since I wanted to see "Must Love Dogs." But of course, since it won't really hurt to give in to his wishes once in awhile, I agreed reluctantly after minutes of persuasion and his trademark "pleading little boy" face.
As expected, the movie sucked and I'm glad I didn't pay for it. :)
