The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants

Maybe happiness didn't have to be something big, sweeping circumstances, about having everything in place. Maybe it was about stringing together a bunch of small pleasures. Wearing your slippers and watching the Miss Universe contest. Eating a brownie with vanilla ice cream. Getting to level seven in Dragon Master and knowing there were twenty levels to go.

Maybe happiness was just a matter of the little upticks- the traffic signal that said "walk" the second you got there- and downticks-the itchy tag at the back of your collar- that happened to every person in the course of the day. Maybe everybody had the same allotted measure of happiness within each day.

Maybe it didn't matter if you're a world famous heartthrob or a painful geek. Maybe it didn't matter if your friend was possibly dying.

Maybe you just got through it. Maybe that was all you could ask for.

i watched the adaptation of one of my fave books last night. i won tickets to the premiere and even if there was a slight change in the story (alright major. they did Lena's part different) the story still moved me like the book did. i dunno if they are planning to do the other books into movies too (there are 3 books as far as i know) but i wish they would. i recommend you watch it. oh and bring tissue. :)

major chick flick. but you learn lots. that's what i like about books/movies like this. It's about growing up and learning to understand what's happening to you then learning to accept it.

i for one know that i still have a lot of growing up to do even if i'm already 27.

ps. i totally loved bridget aka bee. she's tough and she's a hottie ;)

they changed lena's part? oh no what did they do?

i so wanted to kick kostos in the second book. grrrr.

i wish they will come out with the paperback of the third one. i still have to buy it as i didn't want to get the hardbound one (masisira ang look ng books pag pinagsamasama sa bookshelf).
