While I’ve been blogging a lot lately – actually more than I should – I feel like I’m writing too many filtered posts, so I’m gonna throw in a little bit of something personal about me.
Welcome to another Life Lately blog post. I have a lot to share, so hold on tight.
I have a lot to share, so hold on tight.
Lately, I noticed how I’m writing more reviews than I have the past few years I’ve been blogging. It just comes to me, really. I don’t intend to go to a place to blog about it. But I find something special enough to me, that I think is worthy of a share with you all. So far, I’ve come up with a restaurant review, some beauty product reviews, and a café and food review. It means a lot to me when I share things like this with my readers because I believe those are little bits of my life that I can impart to them.
I really think I’ve already outgrown the phase of listicles. At least for me, personally. Like I can’t emphasize some things enough that I would bother to list down what’s, why’s or how’s. You get what I’m saying? In line with these reviews, I guess it’s safe to say that I’m touching more categories than I usually do. And I think that’s good. I’m finally living up to my lifestyle + personal branding.
I’m also trying to clean my blog for good. So I started deleting really old blogs from my Tumblr days since last week. And I’m still not done until now. I went from 4,00+ blog posts down to 1,000+ so there’s still huge progress right there. I started the clean up by arranging the categories one by one and deleting some irrelevant ones along the way, but I thought it was too much work. So I sucked it up, went to my oldest blog posts and started bulk deleting them with only one eye open. I didn’t bother checking the blog posts one by one because that would only defeat the purpose.
So my plan now is to basically start my blog posts from when I moved to wordpress.org and retain some evergreen blog posts. It’s gonna be really tough once I start sorting everything one by one.
With backlogs, well, I still got some blog and vlog backlogs, to be honest. It sucks because I have all these footages and pictures, but no will to edit any of them. LOL. I know, I know, better get on with it.
Since I laid back from my travel vlogs (which I thought were a lot, but weren’t, apparently), I just focused on uploading some video clips I have from the gigs Jec and I attended. I swear, I’m like a stage mother when we go to gigs. Because I’m not gonna experience the same thing all over again, I try to shoot as many videos I can. Okay, maybe I shoot everything. But the point is, I don’t want them to go to waste, so I just started uploading them on YouTube. I don’t really care about the views and likes/dislikes on them. I just want to have a public place to dump them. You can watch those gig videos here.
Weirdly enough, I’ve been getting a bunch of editing tips from strangers lately. I should probably watch more travel videos to get tips, too, before I start editing my old footages. I still got some from our trip to Bicol (December 2016) and Banaue (January 2017). Yikes.
Admittedly, I’ve been reading books less and watching Netflix shows more. I just that at the end of the day, I just want to satisfy my visuals, you know? I just want to literally sit and watch. That’s it. I don’t watch TV, so I make up for it by watching Netflix. Anyway, I would rather watch something focused than jus mindlessly surf channels.
So far, I’m done watching all seasons of How To Get Away With Murder (not in Netflix yet, so I streamed online) and Vikings (until Season 3). I tried watching Riverdale but I found it too.. dark (?) for my liking. I know, HTGAWM is pretty dark, too, but I like that I’m seeing adults and blood. Lots of blood. That would explain my fondness for Vikings. I admire their courage, hands down. I tried watching Series of Unfortunate Events but completely abandoned it. Same goes with House. I enjoyed watching every episode (I like House’s personality, to be honest), but I realized that it’s just gonna be like that for every episode. There’s gonna be a severe hospital case and he’s gonna solve it because he’s so smart.
So, seeing what I like in terms of TV shows, recommend any?
I went back to gym a month ago (yay!). And my 1-month fee actually finished yesterday (March 3). I still don’t know when I’m gonna go back (soon, probably), but I’m thinking of finally paying for the treadmill as well so I would stop paying an extra of Php40 every time I decide to use it at the last minute. It’s gonna be way cheaper then. And I could use the treadmill as much as I wanted.
In other news, I just got a haircut! Yay! Do you like it? No? What do you think? Anyway, it doesn’t really matter because I love it. Haha. Getting pixies is no longer new to me. I’ve done it twice already, so it’s not that big of a deal. An undercut, however. Hmm. I was up all night the night prior, contemplating whether I should go ahead with it. So I just said yes to challenges. It’s just hair, anyway. It’s gonna grow back. This, after saving a bunch of photos from Pinterest. Haha! All I had to say was, I wanted a pixie cut like a guy’s and an undercut. So that was what I got. I’m glad my boyfriend liked it. I was nervous that he would preach on me for wanting to grow my hair finally and then chopping it all off at the last minute.
Oh, and I recently made a new playlist on Spotify. It’s so good, I’m actually #shookt. I’m pretty obsessed with the songs. But I believe I didn’t choose them. The songs chose me. 😛

So that’s it for me. This is a pretty long update, I should say. But it’s just to dump all my thoughts here and write something more personal than a restaurant review.
How’s life treating you lately?
