2nd Semester A.Y. 2015-2016 –done!

 

R E A D I N G
I haven’t gotten to the actual reading yet, but I just grabbed my copy of In Case You Come Back, a poetry book my Reese Lansagan and Marla Miniano. ❤ It also features a foreword by my favorite OPM artist, Ebe Dancel, so more ❤ I can’t wait to read it while I’m in Hong Kong this week yassss

W R I T I N G
I have plans, none of them executed yet. But my sisters are pretty obsessed with the Myers-Briggs personality tests we took, which showed that I am identified as INTP(-A). I already knew that for a while now, but I thought I’d write something about what it’s like for me and how much I identify with being an INTP.

L I S T E N I N G  T O
Ariana Grande’s new album Dangerous Woman. Ughhhhh how to be her??

T H I N K I N G
of the stuff I have to write down for tomorrow’s to-do list

S M E L L I N G
the air freshener that Mom put in our room

W I S H I N G
that I suddenly acquire mad urban sketching skills so I could sketch around in Hong Kong. Alas, it is but a wish 😦 Well right now, it is, but who’s to say I won’t learn in time?

H O P I N G
heavily hoping that I convince Dad&Mom to pay for some art stuff that I want to buy lol because that’s what I plan to do during the break–art stuff and journaling and hopefully writing too

L O V I N G
how organized I was today

W A N T I N G
a sketchbook of great quality!! I personally would like to try our Moleskine’s sketchbook, especially the watercolor blocks, because I tend to lose my works if I use a sketchpad. I really prefer a more put-together sketchbook. The only problem is I’m pretty short on the moolah part.

N E E D I N G
a nice and rigorous workout 😦

F E E L I N G
excited to meet Queen Elsa ❤

Currently, 2016 vol. 3

Tomorrow marks the semi-official second half of the semester, and after spending la Semaine Saint as an unproductive zombie noodle, my academic obligations and tasks are now revived alongside Christ. Happy Easter, indeed.

READING
Lang Leav’s Lullabies before forcing  myself to focus on more important tasks like getting my revisions and readings done

WRITING
So far, my writing muse is experiencing a major adulthood-caused drought, so nihil from the creative front for now.

LISTENING TO
Of all the music choices I have to get myself into an agreeable, acads mood, I chose AC/DC because I spent my whole break drowning myself in Civil War feels. I have no regrets (even if I don’t manage to check off something in my to-do list).

THINKING
(and not looking forward to) about the impending EDSA hell tomorrow, when I go back to QC to face reality.

SMELLING
the aroma of pure black coffee

WISHING
for the spirit of productivity to fall upon me. But mostly, for world peace (both in real life and in the Marvel Cinematic Universe lol)

HOPING
that I don’t get distracted so much by my vices (anime, Marvel, and Tumblr) and by men’s pretty. I need to get my daily life groove back

LOVING
pretty much coffee and watercoloring, how ever random that combination is (P.S. not paired together for consumption)

WANTING
Troye Sivan’s Blue Neighborhood album ! ! ! I heard there are free posters when you buy the physical album from certain Astroplus branches, and the one from SM The Block is included yassss s ss s

NEEDING
more self-discipline and workout (yeesshh couch potato week), more self-time dedicated to helping my inner self to unwind

FEELING
longing for time in my daily life to be set aside solely for pursuits of the soul, like poetry and literature and art

What’s up, fam? I haven’t been updating for quite a while now–believe me, I wanted to! And I really had legitimate things to write about, and I already had half-baked drafts resting in my laptop but academic life was really getting in the way.

You’ll be surprised to hear (read) that I was busy with my social life as well.

S U R P R I S E,   S U R P R I S E!!!

Ergo, I was unable to put aside time to nurture this blog and input some more of my silly thoughts and commentary. The lack of motivation was also a challenge–I have my ideas but the will to actually do it just isn’t there. But I’m free-ish now and I am so happy because the past few weeks had been hectic even with my fifteen units, and I reeeaaaally needed a break from that kind of toxic life. *sigh*

Real life has been getting more and more annoying because it’s the election campaign period now, and as a political science minor, issues about the candidates and other politics-related shit have been up my ass for a while now. Somehow the world went from cute to really ugly and depressing quick.

 

I like to think that this is me maturing as a student–at least, I’d like to think so??? I have my life’s updates here, though, so enough with the heavy stuff first and here ya go!


 

READING

Sadly, no time for leisure reading yet 😦 But I did buy new books!! last week from the popup book sale booth at UP. I finally have a copy of “The Girl with a Dragon Tattoo” and a vampire-themed novel which I forgot the title lol but I think it’s by Anne Rice??? I really do hope I get the chance to read them soon, but for now, it’s the 1987 Constitution and some political science articles. They’re very tiring to read and comprehend, but I’m really happy with what I’m doing (reading, studying) right now.

WRITING

I am more inspired these days to write on my journal and decorate it aesthetically yasssss!!! But I’m also currently writing a small potato rant about my love for my country lol because life here is becoming a bit negative for me, so I had to reaffirm to myself this. More about this later!

WATCHING

I’m not on it yet, but if I manage to clean off a good chunk of my school-related to-do list, I might catch up on the Haikyuu!! episodes I missed haha! Karasuno and Aoba Johsai are about to face off soon–or at least, in the latest episode that I wanted (lol).

LISTENING TO 

Ariana Grande’s new single, Dangerous Woman! Damn woman, big improvement from Focus! This is definitely my week’s jam!

THINKING

About what tasks I’m going to write down in my bullet journal–and now that I’m on that topic, I should really remember to write about my bullet journal experience and style soon!!!!

FEELING

A little too sleepyyyyyy… The past few weeks had left me always falling asleep in every free time I get, whether it’s a 3-hour break in between my morning and afternoon classes or a few hours of nap after my last class. It’s starting to become a problem with my fucked up sleeping habits 😦

LOVING

How I spent yesterday!!!!! I brought some of my highschool barkada to my childhood home near Tagaytay, and we had a boodle fight type of late lunch/early dinner, drank a little for fun, before they had to go home. My best friend and I, since we were the only ones who could sleep overnight there, were able to have a nice heart-to-heart talk which we haven’t been able to do for quite some time now.

I admit that I’m really bad at organizing events like get togethers, so some of my friends weren’t able to come but I think we really enjoyed getting to take some time off and just chill somewhere not-urban. And my childhood home is really the perfect place for that, so I hope I get to have more chances to bring my friends over. 🙂 ❤

PLANNING

How I’m going to maximize the remaining part of my weekend to kickstart the acads process 😦 😦 😦 Just because I don’t have exams anymore next week doesn’t mean I get to slack off!


 

I’ll be updating my backlog list and post some soon (I hope!!), so toodles for now!!! ❤

Hello, wassup, 1 2 3 check, test.

Hello from the blazing hot Diliman campus! ❤ I’m back at QC since yesterday because registration and enrollment starts today, although mine won’t start until tomorrow. But my sister, since she’s a freshman, started the grueling task of enrolling for this semester this morning.

She’s been having a hard time because she initially got 13 units, and she’s supposed to have at least 16 or 17 units before she can enroll, but she has her freshie priority and stuff so I still consider that as pretty lucky.

(Although, in my previous semesters with incomplete initial units, I never really relied much on lining up to get a slot in a class because they’re time-consuming and to be honest, a complete waste of time for everybody.)

Starting tomorrow, slots in every class are going to be free-for-all (except for the graduating students, because they have automatic priority). Seeing that I am still stuck with just 9 units, I have to work hard and work early tomorrow–I lucked out this time because all I need to add now are just my majors and a minor. Although, “luck” is pretty relative when it comes to UP’s volatile enlistment process because you can never be too “lucky” as long as you still haven’t locked in your acquired subjects.

Personally, I could never let myself chill every registration period until I already have my tuition surrendered to our university cashier.

The extra week that UP students had after the holidays passed by quickly and now I’m back here in the metro /cries/. The only upside is that there are more places to hang out in–Starbucks, Coffee Bean, Katipunan, SM North or Trinoma–and my restless feet could stretch out and go around.

I’m going to be pretty busy starting tomorrow, but right now I’m free as a bird so I thought I could drop by and post this.

Here goes~
