This morning, on my bed, thinking of you

Uh-hmm... it's 0150 and I can't seem to sleep. I just finished watching that Kdrama about adulting, the one that I should have finished watching over the weekend had I not chosen to lay on the bed and stare at the ceiling for hours. Come to think of it, is it still a do-nothing day if your mind's…

Weekend read: Some Days You Can't Save Them All

If hospital walls could speak, what kind of stories could they tell me, I would often wonder during the lonely afternoons I spent in the ICU many years ago. I figured it must be fascinating to hear stories of triumph over death, and of course heartbreaking to hear tales of defeat. Years later, I stumbled upo…

Letterbox gift set suggestions you can easily make at home

Gift-giving must be overrated during these troubled times. But what we always forget is that gifts do not have to be expensive. In fact, you can just put together random (but definitely useful) things you can find in your home and put together a nice letterbox gift set. It’s economical because you’d only spe…

10 simple things you can do to live a sustainable lifestyle

The words “sustainable living” have always daunted me. I feel like it’s only for Youtubers and people who can afford to buy organic food and sustainable clothing. I guess it really pays to dig deeper into things. Wikipedia defined sustainable living as a lifestyle that attempts to reduce an individual’s or s…

Hey, it's April!

Just like my March entry , my April welcome post is one day late. I just completed the finishing touches of my April bullet journal spread this morning because I had to do something else last night. Excuses. Anyway, April has always been exciting because first, it's my birth month; second, it's when …

10 lockdown activities to inspire creativity

It’s day 376 since the community quarantine started (at least here in the PH) and here we are again, back to square one. Most urban cities are in lockdown again and people are gonna be stuck at home again for heaven knows how many days. But instead of sulking and being mad about this seemingly never-ending n…

Hello March, it's been a while

This entry should have been written and published yesterday, as the month officially begins. But Spotify decided to deprive me of CNBLUE music (or is it Kakao M? Idk they have contradicting statements) and work pay is a little bit too late. Not that I am complaining - I bought physical albums of my Kpop star…

Book review: Broken Bard, The Path of the Pacifist

Psychology, factions, secret societies, and maybe even conspiracy theories - these are just some of the things you can expect from this action-packed suspense, written by Filipino author Christian Khiel Pineda Unto. Broken Bard is the first installment of the Requiem series featuring the psychology student/j…

The basic steps to adult life

First things first, register to vote.  When we hear the world adulting, it automatically translates to bills, making home-cooked meals, drinking tea, and maybe owning a bunch of discount cards and essential oils. While all of these are true, it's not where you start - at least in my experience. There'…

Kdrama review: Her Private Life and some fangirling shenanigans

It's been more than a week since I finished watching Her Private Life, and I still think of Ryan Gold and his pretty face. It's the first Kim Jae Wook drama I've seen and maybe it's time for me to broaden my horizon and start watching dramas of actors that are complete strangers to me. Anyway…

Creating goals when the new year still feels uncertain

Tabula rasa - a phrase I've learned from my favorite Gayle Forman book. It means clean slate. Starting over. Begin fresh. Leave everything behind as you move forward. The new year is a beautiful opportunity to do all of these, in addition to setting new goals for the year, creating vision boards and work…

In 2021, we'll slowly pick up the pieces

If there's one more thing I should have done in 2020, it's checking out a nice set of wine glasses from Shopee. Strawberry Farm Benguet, March 2020 …

Two days after Christmas

And just like that, my most awaited day of the year is gone. It's been two days, Christmas already came and went, my holiday also started days ago but I am just starting to really feel it.  During the Christmas week, I'd make sure my hair is taken cared of - either it's going to be rebonded or cu…

Nothing's fine, I'm torn...

Oh yes, it's the Natalie Imbruglia song that's on my head right now. You know that moment - when you're in a certain situation and a song lyric just fits perfectly? You're breaking up with your really nice boyfriend and so you just can't have the heart to tell him it's over, you sing,…
