I was contemplating if I should share this wala namang kwenta talaga na kwento. But I decided to write it nalang din because I’m bored right now and I’m in the mood to overshare.
So yesterday, after paying St. Jude and Jesus Nazarene a visit in Manila, I went to Fully Booked in BGC because I have nowhere else to go. You know, loner. Ganyan. Walang maaya. Ganyan. So, after hours of looking around shelves and tables filled with books and IG story-ing about said books, I found this chunky black book called “The Book of Answers” by Carol Bolt. It is a book filled with, well, answers to questions answerable by yes or no. So, little old bored me decided to have fun by consulting some nagging questions in my mind on The Book of Answers. And boy, the answers it provided me made me laugh so much. Some were vague though so I don’t know how to feel about that. Like this one. I asked if I am meant to live my whole life in the Philippines. The first answer I got was something along this line: “Count to ten then ask again”. When I asked again it said that there will be obstacles to overcome. So uhmmm. Yeah? What was that?
I’m not going to share every questions I asked since some are way too personal so really, I don’t evem know why I started this. Haha.
This was the answer to my first ever question and this is the one which made me laugh the hardest. But at the same time, it also made me wonder why. It felt though that it raised more questions instead of answering one. I’m not even sure if I want to be involved in it in the first place and now I’m even more scared of the thought of diving into that.
This one made me laugh too. It is still making me laugh. The answer is much too apt with the question that it was kinda freaky. Should I? Would I? Could I?
This one is such a comforting answer. Who knew that the answer “No” would make me feel that way. And I love how it sounded so firm in my head. Just “No”. Wow. When I read it, I also felt it. Like it’s the real answer.
Okay. My question in here was: “Should I study Astronomy?” It did not outright told me that I should do it but I won’t be disappointed naman daw so push ko ba? Haha.
It was fun. I enjoyed getting answers for my weird-ass questions. I know they are probably not the real answers. But they are also probably the real answers. Who knows?
Okay. I don’t know how to end this. Bye!
