    Life Lately | Vol. 19

    I have so many feelings right now and yet I want to have none.  I don’t find my thoughts deserving of either a 280-character tweet or intentional publication on my social media accounts so I’m writing a blog post instead. Because this is non-disruptive media and you don’t really need to read this. But if you already are, then.. hello.

    I stress myself out inconveniently

    Looking at my laptop’s current battery at 64%, it made me realize that I pretty much function like it. My laptop is already almost outlet-dependent and like it, I feel the need to be plugged to function or I will die. But in the process of trying to “do”, I don’t allow myself to just “be”. And slowly, unknowingly, I’m also killing myself.

    Fotogra Books: Small Books For Your Big Moments

    A couple of weeks ago, I placed an order with Fotogra Books. There was no special event, I just simply wanted to try their service and have a Fotogra Book of my own. But, of course, being the fickle-minded individual that I am, it took me a lot of time to pick the photos, edit them, and arrange them accordingly. If you are not meticulous with things like this, it probably would have taken you faster. Anyway, so I could not put any photos without them having a theme, right? That would be pointless. It would still cost me P700+, for the record. I thought that Jec and I have…

    A Happy List

    It’s 9:24 on a Sunday morning as I write this blog post. I find myself having enough time to write a quick post, so I do this. I realized lately that I’ve been having a bad case of materialism, a tendency to consider material possessions and physical comfort as more important than spiritual values. This is what has been causing me to want things I don’t need and spend hours looking up online stores on Instagram.  I thought I could write down the things that made me happy lately so I could stop pursuing material things. Surprisingly, the things in my happy list are actually non-material things – they are more…

    How I Commuted From San Juan City to SM North EDSA

    Yesterday, September 10, I went out on a date with a good friend, Nikki. We scheduled to meet at nine .a.m., a few hours after her work shift (she works graveyard). Being the close-fisted girl that I am, I chose to take the typical Philippine public vehicles to get to my destination, knowing in my heart that it would be a bit stressful and far. But I also know it’s going to be way cheaper. Haha! I’m writing this blog post so it can be a reference for others who are going to the same spots I did but do not know how. I’m known for being easily lost (I…

    Life Lately | Vol. 13

    I can’t believe it’s August already. I’ve hardly gone past July yet. Now we’re counting four months until Christmas Day. How did that happen?! But anyway, I’m not here to rant about how fast time flies. I’m here to share tidbits of my life lately and how August is going for me so far. 🙂

    Q&A: Getting to know Bae

    Have you ever looked at something and felt so inspired, like you think to yourself, “Wow, I want to do so many things because of you? I want to accomplish this and that? I want to dream big dreams?” Yes? Good, because I’m looking at it right now. I’m not exactly sure if it is the main reason, but I know that it has a big contribution to it, but ever since I changed my theme, which is honestly just a small thing, I had this itch to just write, write, write. Aesthetics really hold some kind of impact, if I may say so myself, considering that my new theme…
