There are specific months of my life in 2011 soundtracked by Penny & the Quarters' "You and Me". Many of us have that, no? We hear a song and it brings back vivid memories without much effort. I hear "Fences" by Phoenix and I'm instantly in that Ortigas office, pining for a boy who would never like me back, waiting for him to instant-message me on Pidgin. I hear Tracy Bonham's "Whether You Fall" and there's the sound of rain. I'm walking home, thinking about everything that ended and how should I begin again? Should I begin again? What now?
