Before I bid 2013 farewell…

Before I bid 2013 goodbye...

By far, I think it’s safe to say the 2013 has been one of the best years in my entire existence. This year, I’ve grown a little independent than the usual, experienced the hardest trials and felt the euphoria of selfless love.

This year, I finally made my parents proud when I finished my degree, got hired on a job that I didn’t applied for, and surprisingly, even got regularized!

On this year, I’ve gotten the chance to visit a lot of places! I usually stay in the city since I don’t really travel. But this year is different! I flew to cebu to attend a temple wedding, traveled to Cagayan de Oro for a business trip (Also, when I got home from CDO lo and behold! Cho2 got his dream tattoo which made me flattered and insane at once lol. ), wandered through the mountains of Datu Salumay when my boyfriend and I visited BuDa for a weekend vacation, and lastly, had a challenging trip to Lake Agco which is 10, 311 ft. above sea level! Oh and sojourning occasionally on our neighbor, the Samal Island. Honeslty, it made me crave for more. I made a wanderlust out of my boring self… thanks to Cho2x, my best travel/food buddy and nurse at the same time.

On this year, my father finally, finally, finally retired from the Philippine Air Force and immediately got hired in Qatar. Which also implies that we weren’t able to spend Christmas together (but thank heavens for Skype!).

Additionally, I think on this year I gained weight. You can tell by the way i fill my instagram with photos of food! I thank Heavenly father for giving us the resources to taste the food that we weren’t able to wallop when we were students (and broke haha.)

These blessings immensely filled my heart with gladness. For the coming year, I solemnly swear that I will travel more and fill the entire year with good memories and experiences..and I can only make these things possible with the help of my confidant. Thank you for staying with me. ♥

I wish you all a prosperous brand new year and may on this coming year, your hearts intent be fulfilled!


Drip, drip, drip

Drip, drip, drip

See how lame my titles are.

Today is such a great day. I cannot even put into words how glad I am that the week already ended. Yes! Hell week just ended and  allow me to experience this moment of ecstasy even just for today. As a reward for surviving the pandemonium, I gave myself what I was craving since “case studies” were born – time for art! It’s been a really long time since my last serious piece (ahehm! Look at how she talks about things that never happened).

I went to my room at once and gathered my materials, not making it too obvious to my mom that I’m excited to do whatever foolishness I’m going to do. As I set my things up, I checked one tutorial about how to do that dripping/bleeding watercolour effect because I really find it eccentric. And so i tried and this is my the product of my first attempt.

Not that bad for a beginner, eh?

4:16 am

4:16 am

I’m not very particular with titles so let’s leave it like that.

Well, as they say, people tend to be sentimental at 3 am and become potatoes during the day. Yes, I’m one of those midnight people who thinks of lovely and crazy things that make my heart fickle and make my eyes woozy at the same time. Everything seems to be in place at this very hour, when most of the people are still struggling to wake up, and people who are in love are still trying to sleep. I think I am just a step away from the latter because the reason why I’m up is that I have to do my case analysis. Haha.

Kidding aside, I think I always fall under that “people who are still trying to sleep” category because I’m… blissfully in love. It’s quite humorous how love works. It feels so beautiful when someone shows care like there’s no tomorrow, when someone hugs you tight, write you letters, fetches you at school :), forces you to eat more (yes i understand), and tell you words that make your heart jump in elation. You can’t blame me if I feel happy because I have this person who bravely plants a kiss on my face in public. I like being kissed on the face. Is that weird or something? Whatever. I think I just have to stop being mushy because my case is waiting to be analyzed.
