On cue my favorite “this-picture/meme-sums-up-my-emotions” of all time:
Yes dear Meeps (LOL I call my imaginary readers Meeps now) I’m in “Let’s Do This Morgan Freeman” state, yet again!
And this time, I’m VERY MUCH MORE excited compared to last time I’m in this state (read back my summer internship woes, if you’re that interested about my fabulous life, teehee).
And of course, THE Morgan Freeman never fails. So here we go, let’s do this!
Read after the jump to see what this rambling is all about ;)
This is my opinion. My version, because I finale they gave us really struck me to the bone *I know I’m being melodramatic*, but I’ve watched the show religiously since season one. I only have one problem with the finale actually, which is how they twisted the Barney & Robin story. After all Ted’s “letting go” of Robin for COUNTLESS times. And the finale, felt like the last slapbet.
If I remember correctly, that the writers never really intended to have Barney & Robin to hook up. That’s why they broke up in the first place. I was fine with that, I shipped them since Robin started flirting with Barney because he & Ted had a “fight” with other guys who won’t leave their booth. Anyway, there. Then, I read somewhere that the fans love Barney & Robin together that’s why they continued writing their story. So of course, I was skipping with joy *LOL*
THIS IS SO UNFAIR. They built & developed the characters, Robin chasing after Barney, Barney chasing after Robin. And finally, Barney realizing that she’s the one after THE MOTHER talked to him. I mean, right? You’ll know that they will be together till the end because she’s the one for him.
We all know that the ending is written in stone even before the show was aired, I think, they really shouldn’t waste the time of writing Barney & Robin love story, especially the whole wedding weekend thing. If the real story was all about Ted & Robin, it would be really nice to give most of the episodes about The Mother instead. At least, even before she died, we got to know her.
And don’t forget that scene, where Lily & Marshall discussed about “when you found the one.. you’ll see her/him differently” something like that. And the ending of that episode, was Barney & Robin looking at each other like how Lily & Marshall look at each other. We all know, that “THE COUPLE” in the series, is Lilly & Marshall. I mean, right?
Barney & Robin are crazy for each other, love each other that much. When you watch the episodes where Ted & Robin were together, all you see was BLEH. Of course, the salute thing is cute. But that’s that. And I don’t find the blue french horn romantic. Sorry Ted. LOL. I found Barney & Robin having a competition “who touched the most exhibit in the museum” much cuter.
Then, the proposal and THE WHOLE season of their wedding weekend, their crazy cold feet moments but realizing that they love each moments. They developed the characters. Barney into finally settling and Robin not being afraid anymore.
It was through their wedding how Ted met The Mother or Tracy/Tracey? So I really thought, that Ted told the love story of Barney & Robin because it was through their wedding that they met the mother. Actually all of them, Lilly in the train going to the wedding; Marshall stranded going to the wedding, The Mother hitched them for a ride; Barney realized Robin’s the one after talking to the Mother; and Robin running away but The Mother helped her to calm down and take deep breaths.
Then, they slapped us that it is ACTUALLY the love story of Ted & Robin, 9 years in the making. What the actual fuck.
I’ll take the divorce, because I really found Barney having a baby girl as his love of his life SO touching. But I really thought that the baby will bring him and Robin back together, and Robin will be back in the gang again.
And Ted, telling the story to his kids because it is a way for him to have closure because the love of his life died. How he struggled to find her, he wants to tell his kids that after all the struggles, it will all be worth it. Even after she died, she is the love of his life. He wants to tell his kids that their mother is worth it. Because she is perfect. His journey to find her is indeed, LEGEN-wait for it-DARY!
And marrying her, THAT’S THE DREAM.
Barney & Robin… last forever.

My life currently:
Lately, I’ve been the emotional “buffer” or “sponge” of my family & friends. I don’t know, I’m not complaining because of course they are my family and they are my friends. They are my rock and I’m glad they feel the same way.
But it’s hard you know, maybe this is why I’m not a counselor *even I’m a psychology graduate* because I absorb the situation. Or maybe because they are the special people in my life that is why I FEEL everything they FEEL about their circumstances. It’s not empathy *like how counselors should do* because it drains me.
It’s just that they are the people you love the most, and you found out they are having a hard time, bitter truth and frustrations and you wanted to get them out of it.
anyway, life’s still good. I just have to manage and balance.
So! Instagram dump after the jump!

Been away from blogging for a while (my Beatles blog, this blog and my somewhat “professional” blog) YES I have THREE. Can you imagine that? sheesh.
*getting a grip*
Okay, before I go slam my face to the wall because of being too much self-involved *after realizing she has 3 fcking blogs*
finally an instagram account. *oh no she din-int! (Carrie Bradshaw reference, just leaving it here) But I did.
Here’s a quick preview after the jump of what I’ve been doing these past few months. Hee-haw!
