Masters of Sex * The woman who couldn’t conceive

I was oddly moved by this heartfelt conversation from Masters of Sex (Season 3 Ep 2). When a woman cannot conceive, especially when an heir to the throne is needed, it’s a national tragedy. It’s even worse for the couple involved as the pressure is coming from all around them.

“The tubes have already been permanently damaged.”
“There is nothing more that can be done?”
“I’m so sorry.”

“Does my husband know?”
“He’s asked for you. Shall I, uh–”
“No. Please… I need a minute.”
“Of course. Take as much time as you need.” Continue reading “Masters of Sex * The woman who couldn’t conceive”

Say I love you

Sukitte Ii na yo

Mei Tachibana was once a regular girl who enjoyed hanging out with her friends. But after a traumatic incident where all her so-called friends suddenly turned their backs on her, Mei’s idea of friendship changed forever.

Even though I only feel warmth at those times, the moment I leave, I start to get cold again, and I fear that even my heart will turn to ice

In order to stop herself from ever going through the same awful experience again, she decides to stay away from people as much as possible, and ideally, to never make any friends ever again. Continue reading “Say I love you”

Living life in constant happiness

As I lay laughing today at the latest gag from Family Guy, I realized something nice. I am an innately happy person. I am trying to remember the times where I was sad – like really sad. Depressed. Down. But the furthest I can go are times when I was desolated and downhearted and angry – but they never last for more than a few moments and they go away, like clouds pushed by wind after a short summer storm.

So I started thinking – do I do this on purpose? Am I actively working every moment to be happy? Or is this something I do unconsciously?

Before we go movie

If you want to relive “Before Midnight”, “Before Sunset” and “Before Sunrise” without looking at Ethan Hawke, have a look at “Before we go”. A woman misses the last train home that can take her to her husband before her marriage falls apart and she ends up talking and having a great night with a busker playing in the subway. A totally adorable rom-com.

Brooke Dalton: It’s possible, isn’t it? It’s possible that you could meet somebody who’s perfect for you even though you’re committed to somebody else.
Nick Vaughan: No, no, see, I think if you’re committed to somebody, you don’t allow yourself to find perfection in someone else.

A POEM FROM YOUR EX GIRLFRIEND TO THE NEW LOVE OF YOUR LIFE

If she asks you
If she asks you who I am, tell her. Tell her
because she is not starting a fire for an explanation but a confession.

If you tell her I was just a girl you dated
for a couple of years, she will only give you a hard time.
The hundreds of photos tagged in your outdated profile and the stack
of books with our names written will be her allies. Continue reading “A POEM FROM YOUR EX GIRLFRIEND TO THE NEW LOVE OF YOUR LIFE”

The ice queen has melted!

Got great news! After being single for what seems to be an eternity and refusing to lower my standards, I have finally met someone!
It is tough, it is very tough to get to like someone. I have tried sites like e-Harmony (but refused to pay for the expensive service) and after literally going on blind dates (they don’t show you the profile pics if you are not paying), I decided to give it a miss. The dates I picked on personality were totally lacking in the physical department! And while I tried to fool myself into thinking that personality means more than looks, I could not imagine sharing a bed with any of the men I met.
