When everything seems falling apart,
just remember how far you have come.
I am still in love with the past. I am still in love with what we had and dream of what we could have. I am still caught up with the illusion that second chances exist and can happen to us. I still drift to fairylands where all wishes can come to life.
I still search for your face on a room crowded with unfamiliar faces. I still measure every new guy I meet and compare them to your looks, thoughts and wits. Even the way you brush your hair and say a sarcastic remark to my shallow sentiments. How you want your coffee to be black and pizza without olives. I still care and grieve for the what ifs of our brief romance.
Yet, don’t worry. I have long realized that letting go is not going to be easy. I know it would take some time but I can’t find a way to begin letting go- where, when and how. There’s so much chaos and confusion that it cracks down my courage and commitment to stop living in the past. I can’t move forward. I just can’t.
This is the consequences of choosing passion over modesty but I would still choose it anyway. This is my story and regardless whatever judgment added into it, I don’t regret writing it with you. I still love you and I still want the past even if it doesn’t want me back.

I went back to Anstruther in Scotland for another visit. It is a small and sleepy fishing village that I bet everyone knows everyone. Aside from St. Andrews, it is a popular destination in this area with sea food restaurants sprouting all over the coastline.
It is very chilly and windy because it faces the North sea. So, be prepared to have your thick coats and ponytail bands for the hair! It is like a bad hair day after subjecting yourself to the unforgiving winds.
I find the coastline worth falling in love. The magnificent lighthouse towers the village with hundreds of beautiful yachts lined up close to it. There are two rocky pathways where the sea waves strongly surges on. The left rocky pavement goes directly to the lighthouse while the other gives you a picturesque view of the whole village.
We also tried the world-famous Anstruther Fish Bar, a traditional fish and chips restaurant. I was amazed because there was a long queue considering that there were plenty of restaurants nearby! We waited for 20 minutes before we got seats. The fish and chips are all good and very cheap! Very affordable considering this exact restaurant has received considerable awards for its sea food menu.
The Scottish Fisheries Museum was not open so we were not able to check it out. Though, I heard the collections of model boats and fishing gears are vast and tells the interesting story of the village. It has a £15 entrance fee for unlimited visits. It is near the harbor, just few steps away from the Anstruther Fish Bar.
I really understand why people keep on coming back to this village. It is like a movie setting of one of those romantic movies you would wish you are into it. As cliche as this would be, it is an ideal setting for those times that you need to pick up the pieces of your life or to reboot meaningless chapters of it. In other words, soul-searching.
It is a perfect place for cruising and experiencing tranquility of life while enjoying impressive, very picturesque sceneries.
