Interviewed by the Dean

Hey everyone!

I’m just getting back into the swing of things.  As usual, I’ve always treated this blog as a sort of confessional online journal of my life. I  always come back to this when something has bothered/been bothering me; hence, here I am. Continue reading

Losing Focus (Update)

Hey, hey! What’s up, everyone?

I know, I know.  It’s been a long while.  Sorry about that…again.  It seems like I just can’t shake the old habit of never finishing anyth

Speaking of, I started multiple (and kind of ambitious) art projects near the end of 2015 and at the very beginning of 2016.  First, I started not one, not two, but THREE new art journals sometime before Christmas break.  I messed up one, so it was down to two by the time school closed for the Christmas break.  One of them was going very strong, inspired by one of my classmates who was VERY diligent with her many Moleskine journals.  Then school started again and I lost sight of why I wanted to finish it in the first place.  Same with the other one which I’ve left absolutely blank, aside from the covers.  Also during this time, my mom and I worked very hard to get the four different Starbucks planners (which is now a custom for at least the two of us).  I absolutely love Starbucks, and I especially loved their 2016 planners because they were MOLESKINE JOURNALS!  (Yup, inspired by that same classmate as well.)  We got help from my mom’s colleagues, who seemed to see it as a charity case hehe…

Finding My Inner Passion. Here’s to the Music students!

Happy Friday the 13th! (The second one of 2015 actually…)
(Just f.y.i., ’13’ just happens to be my luckiest number, and ‘Friday the 13th’ has never failed to be one of the better days in my life so far.)

So I’ve been really free lately, which leaves me a lot (too much) time to think. And my mind just can’t seem to stop thinking back on the embarrassing, funny, scary, anxious, fun, happy, sad and generally memorable moments I’ve had in SOTA (my former high school)…I think this is what people think/feel before they start seeking closure, am I right? And if ‘closure’ is what I want, then I really have to visit them really soon. It’s starting to get annoying.

Anyways, I brought that up because I started reflecting on my ‘Arts journey’ in SOTA, if that makes any sense, and I realized that I auditioned into SOTA under Visual Arts ONLY because it was what I thought would be beneficial and it was what I was more passionate about at the time…But after just a month in that school, I quickly realized that I may have joined the wrong art form. Why? Well…

“Live Long and Prosper”

Hey guys! I’m back once again!

First things first, may you rest in peace, Mr. Spock (Leonard Nimoy). You will be dearly missed. We’ve lost yet another man who changed how we looked at the world. (I know, I know…3 days late. I got busy, k?) Sigh…another one bites the dust 😦

Still got the Valentine’s Day blues?

Hey guys!

Haha, a belated ‘Happy Valentine’s Day’! No offense to anyone who didn’t have a happy one…it’s just that the combination of ‘Happy + Insert random noun here + Day‘ sounds really good together. And I don’t believe in ‘Anti-Valentine’s Day’. That’s not very nice, coming from a Catholic who takes feast days of certain Saints very seriously. Anyways, I had an average Valentine’s Day, if you were wondering–I went to a museum and made sweet love to some 19th century contemporary art…again…

Discovering WordPress.com & My Inner Geek

Hey everyone!

Woah, I’m unusually early with my next post, huh? Haha. I guess I’m getting really into this blogging thing. I come on here everyday to check on my views, re-read my posts, browse through other blogs, and then plan my next posts. And being an introvert, I over-think and plan elaborately for just about anything and everything. (Special mention: Check out ‘Quiet’ by Susan Cain! In a nutshell, it’s about how quiet people actually rule the world.)

Things Are Looking Up!

Hey guys! Hope you’re all doing fine 🙂 I know I am! I’m just so happy nowadays, probably because I went through what came close to hell last year… Continue reading

Update time!

Hello once again, cyber world!

First things first, my apologies for neglecting this blog. I got caught up in my school work and so much teenage, hormonal drama stuff…plus, I went on a service trip to Tarlac, Philippines, which went splendid by the way.

Why is it so hard to say “Goodbye”?

Hello friends,

So the school year here is coming to an end…exams are right around the corner, after which we have our various overseas school trips, and then, I think, some concluding lessons once we get back. I’ve already said my farewell to a couple of teachers. It was nice to see they were as affected and saddened by it as I was. Never thought/realized they really did care about us. Actually, right now, I’m in the middle of skipping a class. Continue reading

A Series of Unfortunate Events

DISCLAIMER: this post gets REALLY messy…I mean REALLY messy. You’ve been warned.

Hey guys…

Feeling really drained lately. I don’t know why. I’ve been getting at least 8 hours of sleep, and I take ciestas(aka naps) on weekends for like hours at a time. I’ve been eating healthy–no soda or fast food at all–and exercising. (Well, I haven’t been taking my meds, but I haven’t done that in a LONG while so I doubt it’ll make a difference.) So I don’t know what’s wrong………..well, maybe I do…
