Basketball and Nerds

Unrequited love. A lot of authors have written books about this particular subject matter. It’s one of the most common tropes used in romance novels. And no matter how many times we have read about unrequited love, we still couldn’t get enough of it. Maybe it’s the hopeless romantic in us. Maybe it’s our own familiarity with these stories. Maybe it’s the hope that maybe the book that we are reading has the happy ending we wish we have had in the past.

Every one of us in a way fell in love with someone dear to us. With someone very close to us. Our best friend. Our next door neighbor. Our classmate.  We all have experienced unrequited love growing up. No use in denying it. We all have. And reading these books not only helps us relive the innocent and sweet feelings of it, deep down in our hearts, we want the story for these characters to have that clichéd happy ending. We hope for the love one gives be reciprocated.

Songs I Discovered in 2017

This year is a year of discovery for me. Not only books but also songs I didn’t know even existed before. I’m not going to deny, I tend to listen to pop songs only or Taylor Swift’s discography so listening to these amazing songs I recently discovered is like a breath of fresh air to my ears.

So before the year ends, I want to share to you the songs that I discovered from reading books or listening to curated playlists that I hope you might also like.

In celebration of 1989 selling over 10 Million Albums Worldwide and the RIAA’s 100 Million Song Certification announcement, Taylor wants to thank her fans by making her entire back catalog available to all streaming services tonight at midnight.

One Instagram post. One Facebook post. Taylor Swift is officially back at Spotify! Mayhem ensued!

June 9, 2017 is officially the day when Swift’s entire catalogue, from Taylor Swift to 1989, is streamable on both the free, and premium tiers of Spotify. If you remember the chaos that ensued when she pulled out her entire catalogue last October 2014, then it’s still chaos today as people celebrated her return to the streaming giant.

But for some, the timing is a little bit suspicious as her return to the streaming service is the same day as Witness’ release, Katy Perry’s latest effort.

Patrochilles

It’s been more than a week ever since I finished reading The Song of Achilles and I can’t seem to get over it. I don’t know why but there’s something about that novel that got to me. Maybe it’s the hopeless romantic in me that got roused up by the love between Patroclus and Achilles that whenever I think about them, they give me the feels. I don’t know, it’s just that in the novel, they loved each other very much that even death can’t stand in their way. The ending killed me.

I titled this post Patrochilles because this post is dedicated to them. Their never ending love for each other really made me a fan. Now, they’re my OTP. I ship them now.
