"a caterpillar doesn't just grow into a butterfly. a caterpillar must undergo metamorphosis, and a cocoon is where a caterpillar risks it all: enters total chaos, undergoes total rebuilding, and is born to a new way of living. only in taking the risk of entering that inert cocoon can the caterpillar go from dormancy to potency, from ugliness to beauty."

all the things they said

here are a dozen and three things i got from my interactions with people:

"I know you. You two are alike. You have many secrets, but I know."

"Your hair smells good. It really smells good, but it does not look okay."

"Slow down. Slow down. Whatever happens, you know I'm here."

"Tumaba ka na ba?"

"Oi! pumayat ka!"

"Take my unsolicited advice: Allow the guys to court you, ok? Tsk. You're breaking too many hearts."

"Para kang bata. Para ka lang bata."

"Ang titigas ng ulo n'yo. Ang tigas ng ulo mo. Magpartners nga kayo."

"Ang malas mo naman."

"You're witty. They chose you because you're witty."

"Napaka-high naman ng standards mo. Isn't (sic) it (sic) stressing you??"

"Ngano man jud ka, 'teng?! Nganong contrabida man jud kaayo ka? Na na na."

"Sorry. I will not entertain your childish acts."

"Pahamak na babae at nakuha pang tumawa. Pahamak ka na babae. Hahaha."

"Oh, you're having backpains. That means one thing: you need to get laid!"

be careful, folks. you might be the ones i'll be quoting next time (*winks*).
