Random Snippets

Random Snippets #19

Thought block. My brain is dry. I am currently trying to finish another round of essays and I think I’ve exhausted everything I have for today hence, the random entry. Maybe this will allow me to reset my neurons. So, watsap por yu?

.

Last Tuesday, we went to watch Lany at O2 Academy Brixton. I’m not the biggest fan but I do like and sing along to most of their songs plus tickets were cheap! In fairness, they’ve impressed me. Paul Jason Klein’s (Kelangan whole name talaga?) voice was exactly the same and if not better live and his energy on stage is quite infectious. Kitang-kita mo talaga na he’s enjoying and todo-bigay with all the kadyot-kadyot moves niya on top of the piano lol. I did enjoy the feel-good vibes the whole night.

.

We just finished watching After Life on Netflix last night and I’ve got to admit I didn’t expect to be so moved by Ricky Gervais’ acting. I guess I was just so used to seeing him doing comedy but this series (which he also wrote and directed) was just superb and I was tearin’ up each episode kasi damang-dama ko talaga siya. I am nothing but grateful for the life I have now despite how hard it is at times. There’s also a lot of powerful lines to live by and one that struck me was ”Happiness is amazing. It’s so amazing it doesn’t matter if it’s yours or not”.

.

During one of my heart to heart talks with one of my closest friends here, it was brought up about how sometimes you just get so caught up with work all the time that even on days off you don’t even have the energy to do anything because you would rather rest and conserve what is left of your katawang lupa for the another day at work. It’s a vicious cycle, one that we can never escape but, as I reminded him, we can always find ways (wow BDO ba itey?) to make it worthwile di ba? Find a hobby or experience something new just to break the monotony. We can’t allow ourselves to be enslaved by our jobs because reality is, we’ll never know when our time is up or when our body suddenly decides it just can’t function anymore. Kalma din minsan sa kayod beh. Aanhin mo pa yung madami kang pera pero di mo din naman nagamit sa mga bagay bibigyan ka ng saya. Thanks for coming to my TED talk, charot!

In line with this, siyempre di pwedeng hanggang advice lang ako. I also have to apply it sa totoong buhay. Little by little, I tried to recall things that I’ve always wanted to experience, something that is more achievable and short term and arranged for it to happen. So far, I have 3 pending ganaps and I can’t wait to tell you more about it (once it happens siyempre). I’ve also been thinking of hibernating on social media again – mainly Facebook ( I’ve completed 7 months last year, wooot!) and Instagram just so I have more time to be in the moment. April perhaps?

.

Also, thanks to all my avid readers a.k.a my future self. I hope one day when you’re 50 or so, you won’t roll your eyes so much reading all the randomness your present self has been writing here. Pasensya nadin kung may wrong spelling or grammar, I’m not perfect hahaha charot!

Haaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyy!

My usual routine of winter hibernation has gone totally off course – my hands were packed and now that the sun is setting a bit later than 3pm, I feel that all the things that kept me so busy this season is finally taking it’s toll on my body. Man, I am just so tired. But, but, but! On the brighter side of things, some weight has finally come off my shoulders. Yaaaaaas!!!!

.

When I left the motherland, the thought of 5 years seemed like a long time. A lot has happened and it was not always a bed of roses. Gusto mo yong may pa Bon- Jovi ako? Charrr! It has been a learning experience having lived an independent life, trying to fend for my own. 5 years later, I am still here hustlin’ in what I can now officially call my second, permanent home. In other words, hello I.L.R and goodbye £3.1k lol! I’m gonna my experience on the process and I’ll post in on a separate entry soon.

.

Also, we’re moving houses and this time it’s just gonna be me and the hubs. Not that I didn’t enjoy the company of my previous housemates but it is somewhat nice to actually have a feel of being a husband and wife in your own little home.

.

Uni’s getting more and more complex. Last session, I didn’t understanding a thing. Or, boobita lang siguro talaga ako sa math. Anyway, this and 1 more term and I’m almost finished with my first year! Pagdasal po nating maigapang ko siya.

.

I’ve had my eyes checked recently and I finally know what’s wrong with my always dry, sensitive and achy eyes. And I also love my new frames lakas maka millenial! #Thirtyta

.

Just finished watching Kingdom on Netflix and OMG it’s so good kaso what a cliffhanger I can’t wait for the next ep! I’ve also been watching Luther, Sex Educatio and I love it too!

.

Currently obsessing on Lany and good thing they’re playing here soon and I just scored some tickets! I miss going to concerts sana we can make it to any one of the festivals this summer. Sana di ma-busy ulit.

.

Taaaaaa!

Random snippets: #2

I think it was the alcohol talking earlier that promised to do the daily snippets. Now that my head is back in the clear, I realised I just can’t do that every single day. I’m not that interesting lol.

• Watch Darkest Hour first, and then Dunkirk. Both thrilling and inspiring and doubles the impact watching it in this order.

• I’m not a big fan of horror movies but I do watch it anyway (peer pressure *scoffs*). I’ve recently watched Veronica on Netflix. I honestly expected a bit more basing from reviews but I wasn’t as compelled. The actors (Antoñito is so adorable!) were really good though. Adding to its appeal is that it’s based on a true story.

• I didn’t go to the gym today. Bukas nalang. (Yeah right)

I’m still not over The Greatest Showman’s soundtrack.

• My becklings will be here again on the weekend! Rampaaaaaa!!!
