    Getting to know Bae: Vol. 2

    I know that I still have a lot of backlog blog posts to write, even way back when we went to Sagada earlier this year, but being a random person that I am, I thought of doing a blog post that would help you, reader, learn more about me. I know a lot of bloggers have their own ways of having their readers know them more, and I actually Googled some list of questions I could answer myself, but I remembered having these screenshot of questions in my phone, which I actually intended to ask someone else while getting to know each other, like when I meet a new friend.…

    Magic Monday | Vol. 6

    This header’s color theme is all over the place, but I actually kinda like it. It works for me. The white background is nice but it contradicts my white texts. Anyway, welcome to another volume of Magic Monday where we list down nice things from the weekend that we can carry over the coming week. I would have stuck with the events of Saturday and Sunday, but it was a long weekend, so I’m going to make a longer list just for this one. It’s 7:19 PM on my laptop’s clock as I type this, but I honestly meant to publish this blog post earlier this morning, since I feel…

    Life Lately | Vol. 7

    I have been pondering whether or not to do a Life Lately blog post because I’m not sure if I’m ready to reveal what’s been happening in my life lately. I know I’ve been active on Snapchat (username: bpcmilanes), but that only shows all the fun and mundane stuff. Deep inside, I’m fighting against my demons. However, I realized that it’s not going to help trying to keep everything inside – my thoughts, opinions, and whatnot – and one way or another I would need an outlet. It’s ironic to say that blogging about the personal events in my life makes me uncomfortable because, well, this is my personal blog,…

    Magic Monday | Vol. 5

    This Monday started out kind of slow for me and I was in a bit of denial as I lazily got up from the bed and tried to stall by scrolling through my social media accounts. I want to sleep some more, but I know I can’t and shouldn’t, and it’s entirely my fault for sleeping late. I guess another Magic Monday blog post would put a little sparkle in my dull morning – or so I hope. I wasn’t able to finish all my goals for the weekend but I was able to start on them. Starting is better than stalling (note to self). I’m 70% done with this…

    The Sunday Currently | 6th

    I don’t really focus on blog series since I don’t have much, but this is just my 6th Sunday Currently volume, like, really?! Anyway, Shane and I were supposed to go out but I realized we actually can’t because everyone else is leaving and we can’t leave the house unattended. I know, what are keys for, right? But I guess I grew up having a mindset that you can’t leave just like that and everyone should coordinate their schedules so at least one person would be home to keep guard. That said, here’s an addition to my Sunday Currently blog posts because it’s a quick one and I’m basically just bumming…

    Life Lately | 7th

    Since last night, I have been feeling dizzy and slightly nauseous. A few minutes of staring at the screen would make it seem like my world was turning and the dizziness didn’t go away when I woke up this morning so I just called in sick at work. I figured that it might not be that bad but staring at the screen for too long might worsen it. I don’t even know if my employer still believes me when I tell him I’m sick or not feeling well because I’ve been “sick” too many times already since I started working for him. But he always emphasizes how health is important…

    Magic Monday | Volume 3

    Wait, it’s Monday again already? How the heck did that happen? Oh well, time to #adult again and deal with another work week. Before you start grunting though, if you haven’t already, I just want to remind you that Mondays do not have to be as gloomy as your face or your attitude towards it. Come and let’s see some fancy and happy things we can carry over the coming days. Here’s a listicle of mine: We went to Baguio City over the weekend and it was a simply relaxing and refreshing weekend. It felt good to be away from my gadgets (unless I’m snapping photos or talking to Shane…

    Magic Monday | Volume 2

    Are you ready for Monday? It’s a new week ahead, but this time, it’s not going to be as fun-filled and care-free as the past few days have been. Now that the holidays are over, we’re going back to reality but it doesn’t mean that we all have to be cranky about it. In fact, we should be welcoming it with a huge hug and grateful heart that we have work to keep us busy and help put food on our tables. I know I’m one of the people that doesn’t escape from work complaints but I still appreciate the fact that everyday I have a goal to accomplish, everyday…
