I hoped that you would put more faith into us, but I hoped wrong. To be so close to something, yet so far. I wonder, is it truly better to have a glimmer of hope in a sea of despair ? 

If that light didn’t exist, I can adapt, grow to live in the conditions I’ve been put in. But, as long as that light is there, I can dream, I can hope, I can aspire. But with that, there exist the possibility that I can never reach the happiness that exist. 

So why do I keep holding on? Hope can be so foolish sometimes.

Shoutouts to Anthony for getting me to this view.

Where did we go wrong this time? I can’t seem to recall, it flew by too fast for it was quite the ride. I always thought of myself as a logical individual, someone who could quantify utility and weigh it over other possibilities. You said “No,” yet I can’t fathom your reasoning. Maybe, you’re the clearheaded one. Maybe, I’m just lost in my emotions right now. 

I used to think of myself as a fighter, an individual who can beat the odds. One who can preserve and endure all obstacles. This was one of my proudest qualities. I mean, that’s who I was for the first 18 years of my life. I grew up underprivileged in a school where my teachers didn’t even think I was going to make it. But I did it, and it stuck with me. And maybe that’s why, no matter what, I like to think that somehow, we’ll end up together again. 

But I digress, I must focus. There are things that I must do first and I can’t get distracted. Maybe in a better place in a better time, things will work out. 

You were absolutely perfect. From head to toe, from your most noticeable qualities right down to the smallest details. The way you held my hand, how our fingers intertwined. The special way we communicated. You could speak only one word, yet an entire message was relayed to me. Your ambition, determination, independence, the list goes on. You had a smile and humor that could light up the sky on the darkest days. You held an innocent curiosity for the oddities of life that I couldn’t help but get lost in the moment when I’m with you.

To this day, I can’t answer that simple question, “what do you like the most about me?,” because to list one attribute, one quality would do no justice. 

And the part I hate is that we didn’t end because of disloyalty or jealousy or trivial fights, we ended on the matter that we couldn’t perceive everything ahead. I can’t say that I hate you nor can I say that I dislike you in the slightest bit. I can’t say that things fell apart, I can’t even say that things didn’t work out. And I can’t be satisfied with an ending such as that. It could just be a fault of mine, but I wonder what would have happened if I caught you before you open the door. Then maybe, things would have turned out different. I felt so lifeless on my bed, hoping that it had all been just a dream. 

I’m young, I’m stupid, I’m arrogant, I’m selfish, I’m cocky. I’m stubborn. I’m twenty and I don’t know nor can I comprehend what the idea, emotion, or feeling of “love” is. I understand your point and I would be lying if I said it didn’t scare me. I would be blind if I said there was no validity or possibility in that outcome. I’m in no position in my life to say that I know how the next three, or four, or five years of my life will play out. 

But, I can recall how the last two years played out. I remember when I first met you. Of how absolutely wonderful you are. I was struck head over heels. If goddesses truly existed, then I thought I had just met one. I remember clearly thinking to myself, “there’s no way she’ll ever go out with me.” But you did and here we are now. 

And yet, I simply can’t let you go. Maybe I’m just being selfish and I’m acting in the moment, but I can’t help but to think that there’s some way, some outcome, some endgame, where I win you back and we live happily ever after. But we both know that’s not how our lives work.

And yet, I can’t help but to contemplate on your happiness, that in a better place and a better time, you find someone who’s smarter, who’s better looking, who has a brighter future, and who can make you happier than I can.

FDA proposes food label changes
CNN: The Food and Drug Administration is proposing the first changes to food nutrition labels in more than 20 years. 

If approved, the new labels would place a bigger emphasis on total calories, added sugars and certain nutrients, such as Vitamin D and potassium.
The FDA is also proposing changes to serving size requirements in an effort to more accurately reflect what people usually eat or drink. For example, if you buy a 20-ounce soda, you’re probably not going to stop drinking at the 8-ounce mark. The new rules would require that entire soda bottle to be one serving size — making calorie counting simpler.
