I'm Just Not That Into You

"Girls are taught a lot of stuff growing up:
if a boy punches you he likes you,
never try to trim your own bangs,
and someday you will meet a wonderful guy and get your very own happy ending.
Every movie we see, every story we're told implores us to wait for it:
..the third act twist, the unexpected declaration of love, the exception to the rule.
but sometimes we're so focused on finding our happy ending we don't learn how to read the signs.
how to tell the ones who want us from the ones who don't,
the ones who will stay and the ones who will leave.
and
maybe..
a happy ending doesn't include a guy, maybe it's you, on your own, picking up the pieces and starting over, freeing yourself up for something better in the future.
maybe the happy ending is just moving on.
or maybe the happy ending is this..
knowing after all the unreturned phone calls and broken-hearts, through the blunders and misread signals, through all the pain and embarrassment...
you never
gave up hope"

Perez Hilton got his hands on the New M
oon poster that was supposedly leaked online. I love it, i think it suits the essence of New Moon:)

Edward's "I-love-you-but-I-have-to-leave-you" expression is a perfect 10.
Jacob's scowl pretty much warns Edward to "stay away, Bella is happy and safe with me!"
Bella looks torn.
Since Jacob will get more screen time with Bella,
the reunion between Bella and Edward better be good.

I just have to share these:
Credits to the amazing people at Fanpop!

Oh well, thank God for on-screen fairytales.
It makes reality pales in comparison
and generally makes the world a happier place..
if only for a while.

Carmel: same here!

Elvie: Adoi, I 'operated' my blog as well. got bored with d old template. Pelan2 bah, misti u bz design d header kan..hihi.

Manda: d Twilight book is much better than d movie. More intense n detailed. Not sure about New Moon though, let's hope d director is good. Actually i watched d mv b4 reading d books, and while it's not as good as d mv, at least Edward Cullen has a face in the form of Rob Pattz. Makes d reading experience a whole lot better..hihi
