Huli ka! ● etymology: tagalog

1. got you
2. you're late

unreleased recordings from 2013-14.

it's very much so unpolished, with the levels all over the place. thought i'd keep it classic whatever, dad, you know? sloppy. temporary. diary entry observations on old friendships and heartbreaks and fears that are different now!

despite all the other terrifying realities, i plowed through some years and life is more delicious. as someone who feels easily embarrassed of my early projects and those projects as a reflection of my earlier self, i also think there's something nice about revisiting that kind of stuff. to reflect on where i was, how i thought and felt, in relation to this present...there are still some reminders worth hearing.

anyway, it's been a while. thanks for listening.

Excerpt from Codependent No More by Melody Beattie:

"Caution: intense happy feelings can be as distracting and scary as intense sad feelings, especially to codependents who are not used to happy feelings, according to Scott Egleston. Many codependents believe happy feelings must always be followed by sad feelings, because that is the way it has usually happened in the past. Some codependents believe we can't, shouldn't, and don't deserve to feel happy. Sometimes we do things to create sad feelings after experiencing happy feelings, or whenever the possibility of a happy feeling exists. It's okay to feel happy. It's okay to feel sad. Let the emotional energy pass through, and strive for peace and balance."
