Ñ Sneak peek into my dorm room (Posting this since i’ll be moving in here for the next 5 months before getting back to my own bedroom in Baguio)
UDS 624
I honestly hope they didn’t take down these photos while I was gone for last three weeks.
Where I got these photos?  T U M B L R. I looked through my archive from the last 4(?) of owning a tumblr account. Then I got the selected photos developed. 
Yes, there are pictures of James Franco, Robert Pattinson, Joseph-Gordon Levitt, Nico Mirallegro and many more. Yes, there are pictures of jelly fishes and giraffes. And of course, there are pictures of my family and friends. 
I guess I chose this side of the entire dorm room for this reason alone. The empty, white wall is the perfect canvas to put up something like this. 
I’m really satisfied with this. It’s simple. But “There is BEAUTY in SIMPLICITY” so… :P

MAKE UP

WARNING: This is a rant. 

What I get when I wear make up:

  • "Are you wearing concealer?" (sorry, I like to conceal my uglehh imperfections lol)
  • "I.S. [international school] girls like to wear make up, huh" (Uhhh,hasty generalizations my friend. Not all IS girls do)
  • "Why do you wear make up everyday?" (sadly not perfect)

What I get when I do wear make up:

  • "You look different"
  • "You look sick"
  • "You have no eye brows"
  • "YOU UGLEH"… loljk maybe not this. But I know they’re thinking it! :P

I guess it’s a given that people have their own opinions about make up. I wear it because, first of all, I do not have perfect skin/features. Second, it makes me feel better. Third, I honestly enjoy putting on make up (I’m a girl, duh). It just seriously annoys me when people question why I wear make up and then point out my flaws when I don’t wear make up. Sometimes, I just want to be like “mind yo own face!”. But in my defense, I don’t even go overboard with my make up. I keep it as natural looking as possible.

The 90s

I may have been born in the year 1995, but I can’t call myself a “90s kid”. I honestly don’t remember anything vivid enough to call a “substantial memory” from the 90s *sad face*. However, if someone were to ask me to pick a decade I would love to live my youth in, I’d pick the this decade. 

I love looking back at old photographs and seeing what my parents and aunts used to wear during the 90s. Having very young parents, they’ve also introduced me to music popular in the 90s. My own dad being an avid fan of Nirvana and Oasis. Watching My Mad Fat Diaries (a show set during the 90s) probably boosted my interest in this decade as well. The show made me love how cellphones weren’t even that popular yet and how getting in touch with a person took more effort than it does today. To me, this decade was the borderline between the simplicity of life then and the life we are familiar with now.

I guess I love how the fashion during this decade falls more on the edgy side but at the same time having an undertone of that “laid back look”.  I think that the laid back look is also a reflection of the “grunge” or alternative rock music loved by this decade. The 90s is surely a contrast to the lively colors popular during the 80s.

My favorite fashion pieces during this decade would definitely be the high waisted denim shorts, flannel tops, combat boots and crop tops. 

I T R I E D to incorporate the 90s in what I wore during the Bruno Mars concert last March 22, 2014 (my birthday)…. Okay, so maybe not. Honestly, the entire 90s inspiration was unintentional. I bought a turtle neck top for a particular reason (in which I do not want to discuss in this blog), and I bought this light denim wash high waisted shorts just because I’ve been loving high waisted bottoms and I lacked one in this shade. Put those two garments together, and you get this:

So seeing this look put together, I guess it’s a 90’s inspired look with a modern twist? The boots may not be combat boots, but they’re black and they’re boots, so it still gives that edginess combat boots can give a look. Turtle necks seem to be a thing of the past, and so incorporating that in this look also throws this look back by two decades (hehe).

Ñ If only anger was disposable. If only anger could easily be folded up and stored in an attic for years. If only anger could be forgotten so easily. 
People say, “forgive and forget” but I just don’t think those two words can actually belong in one sentence. How can you forgive someone completely when you can’t forget what they’ve done? How can you forgive someone when you can’t forget the anger that they’ve caused?
Dealing with the people that caused you so much anger and hurt is one of the many challenges we face in life. Tackling these problems everyday is simply living life. 
Right now, I’m not living “the life”. I am just living life.

Summer Adventure #2

A summer is not complete without a road trip. Luckily, after days of begging, my parents actually allowed me to go on a road trip to Subic with a group of friends. It’s been 2 years since I’ve last been to a beach (I know, pretty depressing). So, yes, going on this trip made me really happy.

Ñ Am I ready for this? Classes from Monday to Saturday. Classes that start at 7:30 am and classes that end at 9:00 pm. Can I actually do this? 
I’m bracing myself for this semester. It will be a very tiring and hectic next few months for me. My schedule is definitely a lot more booked compared to Freshman year and I know it won’t get any easier any time soon. 
I gotta step it up though. My summer grades weren’t the best and I knew I could have done better. F O C U S is what I will do.
I had a great summer. ALOT of things happened. Both good and bad. It was a break I definitely needed and I think, deserved after my first year in college. But I have to redeem myself academically. That way, I can enjoy my next break even more, knowing that I definitely deserve it after another semester of hard work.

SUMMER Adventure #1

My SOPHOMORE year begins in a week and I haven’t posted a single thing about my summer. My 2014 summer is divided into three parts. This is a photo dump of the first part of my summer. 

Spent a lot of time with these girls. (Noelle, Carol and Daenielle). Our outings consists of joy riding all the way to Buyagan Trinidad, stopping over for banana cue, starbucks, finding the blackest music in our ipods and many more.

I can’t stand staying at home the entire day but when I do have to, I watch series, read a book, eat and sleep all day, never leaving my bed.

That impromptu breakfast with Carol. 

Her outfit of the day: School sweater, beanie, slippers, socks, and of course, her LV bag :))

Spent some time with these pretty young ladies:

"Ate duties" driving these little boys around. image

Night out with these girls :)

Oh, and I baked a lot :))

Chill. That’s one word that describes the first part of Summer 2014.

Ñ I’ve learned that it’s easier to get by when you disregard the feelings and the emotions and the cheese and all the stuff we thought were once so nice.

Watching them flow from one area to another, giving no interest to their surroundings. There’s just something fascinating about them. Seeing right through them, their transparency unfolds a sense of purity. Their fluidity manifests serenity, tranquility, and just quiet. The glow that they emit is nothing but tantalizing and magnetic.  Silence has never been so loud, just watching these creatures. 

My fingers itch to touch them but warnings say otherwise. The truth is they mask their wrath with a physique that seems so pure and serene. One wrong touch, and they leave burning mark on your skin.

Every time I visit an aquarium, I take my time, just staring at the variety of jellyfishes they have. They are beautiful sea creatures.

Ñ I hate how I have time to scroll through my newsfeed and homepage all day long but have no time for working on papers or studying. What ever happened to the studying habits I possessed back in high school? :(
Gone.
But here’s a smile I’d like to share because I’m just feeling POSITIVE today. This hot weather that screams “SUMMER IS HERE”  puts me in such a great mood, I had just to express it by posting a teeth smiling selfie on my blog *sarcasm*.
 I am going to be done with my freshman year in 3 weeks and I cant wait to get these next three weeks over with. I have mixed feelings about it. Like, where the hell did time even go? It will be stressful, that’s for sure. But Im sure as hell looking forward to the last day of classes AKA my birthday ;)
YES. I love leather jackets… BOO i can’t wear them here in Manila.
