the only thing i want in this world is to hold you in my arms
and to put flowers in your hair
to kiss your wrists and remind you
that the ocean is not as vast as the love i have for you
and that no nebula can compare to the beauty i see in your eyes
that your smile reminds me of sunbeams in a forest
that your voice is the soundtrack to my favourite dreams
and that i love you
more than you could ever know
Sometimes I just watch khan academy YouTube vids because why not

Kuya Ron: So how do you know if you actually understood what was sung during the hymn singing?
Me: If you cry? That’s what everyone does.
Kuya Ron: No, anyone can cry. If you do the things that you sang in your everyday life, it means that you actually understood the hymn.
~5 years ago after a CWS Final Thanksgiving Practice~
Someone: Omg, I cried.
Someone else: Me too? (To everyone else) Did y’all cry?
Me: Just because you cried doesn’t really mean anything.
~Today for our Holy Supper General Practice~
Choir Directress: A minister stressed to us the importance of singing from our hearts. Now, he told us that to sing from our hearts, does it necessarily mean to cry? No, because anyone can cry. Because the same person who cried can be the first to fall asleep during the lesson. Because the same person who cried can be the first one to disobey God’s commands as soon as he or she walks out this door. And so, if we do the things that we sang in these hymns in our lives, it means that we are singing from our hearts.
