Yes, you read correctly the last time. I am in a two year relationship. What's that you say? I'm not entitled to, nor have any business talking about unrequited love? Not true. You see, I'm not talking about your everyday sorta love. I'm talking about loving someone from a distance, someone who doesn't even know you exist from a speck of dust. Yup, that's right. The love for celebs - in my case, Taylor Daniel Lautner.
I remember flipping through a magazine when the "Twilight" movie was still fresh, and there was a feature on Taylor Lautner as the new Hollywood heartthrb next to Robert Pattinson. "What's the hype for?" I wondered. I actually could not understand the obsession with Taylor Lautner. Little did I know I would become one of his biggets admirers - I firmly testify to that!
It all started one Saturday when I was surfing the TV channels and came across Saturday Night Live - the episode where Mr. Lautner was the youngest host in the history of Saturday Night Live. As I sat there in my pyjamas and a luke warm mug of coffee, I observed his personality, his amazing martial talents, his sense of humour and his leather jacket. I remember saying out loud, "Hey, he's actually kinda cute!"
Over the next few days I found myself downloading pictures of him and, before I knew it, I was hooked! Borrowing the "Twilight" and "New Moon" movies became top priority, and after watching it... well, let's just say I still watch his scenes when I'm alone, and of course, I bought my own copy of the Saga.
Even though my sisters think I'm going way overboard with my obsession, my eldest sister still bought me Taylor Lautner memoriblia over my birthday and Christmas. Truly the best presents ever!!! Hahaha...
I may sound like a typical teenager (which I would not deny), but Taylor Lautner serves a greater purpose than an obsession to me, believe it or not. Whenever I feel down, especially when my boyfriend and I have our quarrels, watching Taylor brings a smile to my face no matter what. He is the rare butterfly in my life... There for fleeting moments to make me forget about whatever may occur around me. I may never reach that butterfly, but it leaves a lasting impression in my world.
Until next time, keep flying :-)
