"Law School" (Payphone by Maroon 5 Parody) by Chocolate Ghost House

This is something that only law students will be able to understand.

It's also something that we're all experiencing this semester, dating the 3 very complicated yet interconnected courses concurrently.

The harmonious tunes of “My Heart Will Go On” and “You Ruin Me” swept me emotionally when mi hermana basked in the emotional melodies. It’s not exactly the song I’d want to listen to after an exhausting morning with International Law, but the heart gets what it wants (to quote one of Selena's songs).

My throat began to thicken at the same time as my eyes stung, sigh.

Who knew "You Will Ruin Me" would still have such an impact on me? =/

Anyway, I was tempted to enroll for piano lessons after that. Here’s the catch; I was exposed to piano lessons as an elementary school student but threw it in the towel when I couldn’t handle the balancing act of academics (we're talking about at least a decade ago) with lessons. I surrendered for more than a decade without touching the musical instruments - until now, until I discovered my hidden recorder. It was a gift from Mama Carrie when I was in the music club during the SS 19 days. I haven’t been able to convince myself to dispose it because embedded in it are happy reminiscence of the musical experiences - including presenting a performance for some VIP once. Yet I’ll not succumb to the temptation; it’s pricey to purchase a piano here and my place can’t accommodate a keyboard either. First thing first, I’m a freshman who barely has enough time for herself, let alone straighten her priorities. How can I even afford to commit myself into the lessons?

I’ll just have to contend with listening to mi hermana and, hopefully, have the opportunity to see the acquaintance at the piano. With that being said, he still thinks that I’m one of the best players he’s met - and I shall let him awe in that amazement for the time being. #sneakyCiana

That’s just wishful thinking, though.

I don’t think either one of them will have the spare time to play the piano. Between the three of us, we’ve a packed calendar and obligations to fulfill (note: personal life). The free time remaining will always be reserved for the me-time and nothing more.

Meh, we’ll have to see how things end up.

Plus, I've a busy fortnight ahead of me *help* in the form of an assignment (no, make that two assignments! Although the compiling of contributions for the case log has been assigned to a team member, I can't help but pace in anxiety... and yes, it's a one-way street to passing this particular course. No redemption whatsoever permitted.) and lectures with its related seminars.

Some people may say that it is the golden key that keeps friendships and relationships alive, but it does not come easily. Depending on the individuals, not everyone have it easy for them. Some can’t trust without fearing that history will repeat itself. Some can’t trust because of something that the other party has been doing.

I’ve heard too many examples, but there’s one that will always stand out in my mind whenever trust is mentioned.

“One allowed the poison to infiltrate his bones to the point where his facade crumbled in the public eye, pouring buckets of freezing water at all. The other sought solace in music and travel, flying to a place where she was confident she could start over.”

All in the name of what?


Although they could trust each other with their secrets and thoughts, they couldn’t be honest about their feelings. The mere knowledge of this couldn’t prevent the blossoming flames into something they couldn’t have or even save their crumbling friendship.

There’s another thing that I’ve realized too.

Those who trust a tad bit too easily tend to have their hearts cracked in two more often than those who trust with caution.

What about you guys, my readers? Have you experienced a moment in time where you felt that you should have (or should not) trusted someone?
