• I was so drained earlier nakaborlog ako agad after work (around 6ish) then woke up 10 na! So here I am again with my 2am wide awake cheneller!

• Stormzy’s Glastonbury set was an ultimate banger. Haaay. Glastonbury kelan ba kita maaattenan? Hopefully next year ma-ipush na kita.

• I’m on to my last module for the first year and sa dami ng ganap and pressure for the last few months, I couldn’t get myself conditioned enough to get my requirements started. Pengeng motivation please!

• Excited for the coming months ang busy ko na kaagad besh! July – We’re seeing Florence & the Machine (tickets were gifted to me by one of my ever so generous best friend) dream come true mga besh! August naman will be for, secret muna hahahah and then September aurahan ulit with the becklas!

• My work mother is leaving. Nakaka lungkot and at the same time, nakakapressure and nakakapagod yung mga changes. Prolly one of the reasons why I’m tired all the time. But I love what I’m doing so keribels!

• I’ve signed up for dance class and so far I’ve done 2 sessions and looking forward to more! Nakaka happy talaga doing things you love.

Random Snippets #22

| 23:46h | Sunday

I woke up from a really long nap (around 3-ish hours) and while I attempt to get myself to study, I started hovering around and thought I’d clean up and sort some of my albums.

I say this time and time again, I always fear that one day I’ll forget everything hence the unending documentation and collection of pictures, videos and this blog all for the purpose of reminding myself that I had all these memories and thoroughly enjoyed and made the most out of life. Browsing through my collection, I couldn’t help but feel a twinge in my heart – especially those that remind me of HOME.

I was born and raised in a really small town up north. Growing up, I remember how we didn’t have enough malls or restaurants or club and I always wanted to study in Manila and experience city life. I wanted more and felt like I’m missing out on a lot of things. But, looking at all the captured moments, every single one showed pure joy. Looking back, I know that putting other factors aside, growing up in the province didn’t inhibit me at all. It actually made more appreciative of the small things, of what I have and still be thankful for the bigger things; that there’s always beauty in simplicity; that as cheesy as it may sound, it is legit when they say it doesn’t really matter where you are, it’s who you are with;

I couldn’t sleep again. This is normal. I guess it’s my prime indicator that I’m well after my 2-week sickness.

After

I’ve just started reading the After series by Anna Todd and as much as there are parts that I hate about it, I am actually drawn to it. I’m currently on 2/5 books and I must say, my now tita self disapproves of the seemingly toxic and unhealthy bickering but looking back at my previous teenage naive self, I can actually relate. Of course I wouldn’t want to give away too many spoilers about the book but yes, I am hooked!

Oddly enough, on hours that I’m adulting and not reading, my mind tends to drift off, remembering my past years and comparing my similarities in terms of impulsiveness to Tess, the female protagonist. You know that stage where you’re just too in love and the only way going forward was to stick with that person and fight against all odds until the end. As in forever and ever. That was the idea back then. That was sort of my norm. My baseline. Too much romcoms and happy ending movies I guess. I thought it was noble and the right thing to do at the time. And man, even the way I defied friends, family and especially my Mama all those years just to get what I want makes me wanna cringe. But the experience was a vital chapter in my character building (taraaaay). I’ve learned more about life and love and it comforts me knowing there were a lot of happy moments so no regrets. Only facepalms and shaking of head. I will stop here before I go on divulging more details about the book lol.

I miss traveling. I aim to travel more and practice more photography and videography but warm and sunny England makes me want to just stay home and read. Thirtyta me is such a bore.

I haven’t watched Avengers End Game yet because I’m part of a small percentage of people who goes after all the hype has died down. I am also unbothered by spoilers so yeah. Add to that, I also haven’t started on the last season of GOT because hey, I’m also on that spectrum where bingeing the whole complete series is more reasonable. Worth the wait right?
