Eye Candy : Ryan Guzman

15 Mar

I only saw Step Up Revolution last weekend. It was shown in the theaters last year but I just ignored it thinking it is just some typical dance movie, where groups of hip hop dancers battle against each other. I have seen other dance movies already so I thought I can’t be bothered to see another one. It was only until this weekend when I get the chance to watch it and I liked it! It is a nice feel good movie to see. I wouldn’t say much about how the story goes but I just have to say that the lead actor just caught my attention. Well, who wouldn’t notice him, he is so hot! He is very charming, really good looking and so talented. He dances so well and portrayed Sean’s character well considering, this is his first lead role, I think first his first movie too. Not to mention, he’s got a body to die for. A total Eye Candy! Well, his name is Ryan Guzman. 😉

Ryan Guzman. The Eye Candy

I used to do contemporary and street dancing too when I was younger so I was impressed with the movie’s choreography, especially the moves of Ryan. He is such a good dancer!

As I was watching the movie, I noticed something… Ryan looks like someone I know… well someone I used to know… Gosh! He just looks like him! I mean M, he looks like M. Gosh! But well, minus the abs. Hahaha!!!

Well they have lot resemblances. The way Ryan smiles, when he is blushing and trying to look cute (well, he is really cute, way good looking in fact), when he stares into someone or into nothing… they just look the same. God, I am reminded of him again. But I can’t help it. I now google for Ryan’s picture, read his bio and watch some videos of him. I can’t help but stare at his pictures. Well since the weekend, I have seen the movie about 4 times already. I just can’t get enough of him! But now, I don’t know if this is me liking Ryan as himself or liking him because he looks like M. Gosh, why do you have to look like him?

Well I don’t really follow actors, local or foreign on twitter but after I discovered this beautiful creature called Ryan Guzman, I started following him. He seems like a nice person on and off the cam. The way he tweets both to his family and close friends, and his fans, it shows how a nice person he is and because of that I am liking him more.

Hot Ryan Guzman

But going back to him and M being look a likes, although not entirely because, well, Ryan is metrosexual, has a toned body and into hip-hop, rnb and slow jams, and M is your metal guy who headbangs in a rock and roll concert, has a long hair, wears black most of the time (like me) and doesn’t care too much of fashion (he’s got his own style which I like), well he used to work out in the gym too so he got some muscles and all (but no sexy abs like Ryan’s), in short he is like a bad boy! But they are alike physically, especially the eyes that seems to weaken me and the smile that melts my heart.

M’s look a like, Ryan 🙂

Gosh! What am I talking about? I am supposed to be over him. I am supposed to be moving on and not thinking of him. What happened now?

Well I haven’t really forgotten him and haven’t really stopped thinking of him. But that is another story now.

I have a confession to make

10 Mar

I have a confession to make.

I had coffee during the days I am not supposed to have one.

As you know I have signed up for the 40 Days Of Water challenge by B:WM, not only to benefit the org’s mission but also as my form of sacrifice for the Lenten season. As you see, I have not been very successful with it.

The first week was quite good, except for that instance in Day 2 where I had Iced Tea out of excitement from a football match. I had my first feast day, which I had about 4 or 5 cups of good coffee.

The second week though wasn’t a success, I had coffee twice or thrice. You see, I am very in love with coffee and coming from the “feast day”, it was hard not to start my day without it. So day 6 and maybe 7 and 8, I had a cup of espresso in the morning. It was quite hard to resist, after all, coffee is overflowing in the office.

I had excuses. I said, “it’s not even exactly one cup, just half of it.” Or “BWM said we dont have to be perfect, so it’s okay.” Another lame excuse is that, “I really need to perk myself up, I didnt get much sleep so I need at least half a cup to survive the day.” Then I found myself hiding or making sure none of my co-workers who knew what I signed up for, sees me pressing that coffee machine. Not good.

I was tempted. I was being tested I know. And I gave in.

I also experienced persistent headache for a few days, became grumpy and all. And that is caffeine withdrawal I found out. And because of that, I came up with another excuse to have at least a cup to avoid withdrawal. Bad. So to compensate for the lack of caffeine, I started eating chocolates again. I already cut my chocolate consumptions since I started hitting the gym, but because of 40 Days of Water, I have no other source of caffeine aside from the chocolates.

I guess I could relate this to my relationship with M, that whenever I say that I’m done with him, I find myself thinking again of him and wishing we are back together. I give in to the thoughts that I can’t forget him or that I can’t move on.

I guess when you have something or someone you rely on too much, it’s hard to break the habit of thinking or going back to them.

But then, a comment I read from someone made me go on and stick to my commitment. It says, ” So to practice giving up something when it is available and easy to acquire now, could be an investment in strength for harder days ahead. ”

It is a good training. This sacrifice will help mold my character.

I am now halfway through it. Day 22 was yesterday and today is Feast day! 18 days to go! Well, so far, 3rd and 4th week were successful. By God’s amazing grace, I am able to continue with my commitment. I am still tempted ’till now. Well temptation will always be there but when you are committed, you shouldn’t have excuses.

And it takes a lot of discipline to do this.
