In Metropolis and the Mental Life Georg Simmel becomes one of the first academics to examine the conditions of the modern city, claiming that the city produces conditions of behavior unfathomable to those in the country. He states that while this freedom is liberating it is also a…
I guess you already had me when we were counting the cranes together. For some reason, it’s a moment I’m quite fond of. Maybe because we were both doing something for the org we’ve grown to love or maybe it’s the shared silence we had, maybe both. Whatever it was I felt then that you’ll be someone I’ll treasure for a long time, maybe even for the rest of my life. It was a thought that I’ve pushed, believing it was only because of the moment but since then I’ve been so drawn to you. It was a feeling I couldn’t understand or maybe because I just refused to accept it. But the hurt was there when I thought you liked someone else and I felt foolish to even think for one second it was still me. That’s why I never thought you’d even ask me on a date before the semester ended.
It was quite a surprise, D. I was also a bit nervous because I wasn’t sure what I was getting into when we were at Pi eating pie (tangina ang sarap). I felt happy and at ease, though. For the first time it felt so easy to be with someone without putting up any facade. I felt excited because it was the first time we ate out together. Who knew we’d be having a lot of those in just a short span?
In just a few months you’ve made me the happiest I’ve ever been. All those times we’ve spent together: eating, drinking, studying, sleeping, or just driving around brought me closer to you. I’ve grown to love you more with each passing day and it’s a privilege you’ve given me, D. I’ve never been so sure about anyone else. I remember the things we’ve done, the things we’ve been through and I feel blessed because I had you. I look forward to the future with you and the more time we spend together, the future without you in it is a though I can’t bear. I know it’s only been a few months but I know it’s you I want to waste time with.
I promise to love you more every day, D. I promise to fight for it each day that we’re together. And I promise to give you half of the pizza all the time.
I’ll always love you, through hell and high water, D.
