Hello December!

I know that I’ve totally abandoned my blog because I’ve been busy with so many things. I still have 2 entries that I haven’t posted yet because I don’t have enough time and energy to do it. Honestly. But don’t fret, because the photos are just in my camera and it will just take me a while to upload it and make the entries. (I haven’t updated the margins for the tablet view and the mobile view so that’s one of the reasons why I’m slacking too.)

I’m trying to learn a few things about CSS with the help of Ino but I think I still need to learn some coding skills here and there to really customize my theme. Well, I had asked for Ino’s expertise since he’s a senior web developer, but it’s almost Christmas… and he always tells me that he’ll fix it but I’m getting impatient. So, I decided to tinker it myself and just ask him for a walk-through. Because if I don’t do it, who else would?

In other news…

I also know that I have to catch up with you and keep you updated with what’s going on in my life. So here it goes…

Reading

I never got to finish 50 Shades of Grey (the Filipinized version), but I was able to finish City of Bones. I forgot when exactly, but I’m happy to let you know that I’m now on the third chapter of City of Ashes. My paperback has been on the shelf for a few years and I just opened the book last Friday because I almost died out of boredom last week. It’s all thanks to our Korean managers and their ‘no-gadgets-on-the-desk’ rule. 

I’m also reading Victoria Aveyard’s Red Queen. I had a hard time reading it at first because I didn’t get it but after trying my best to understand it, I’m proud to say that I’m already on the fourth chapter. I’m still trying to get interested with the plot so, I hope to finish this book by next year.

Listening

I can hear the scenes of the movie, Spectral. Ino is watching it beside me on the bed while I’m writing my TSC. It’s a little distracting, but it’s fine.

Thinking

I’m thinking about my salary, my 13th month pay and my bills. I was hoping to save some money for my resignation and the ‘homebased’ or work-at-home life next year. I’m a little stressed out with work and how I’ll get the hang of everything but I’m really looking forward to the changes that I’ll be facing next year. 

After a while, I realized that I’ve been working in the office for quite some time and I haven’t practiced my degree. In a few months, I’ll be getting married and I have to be more responsible. I have to be a good wife and I have to be a better person. I hope that I won’t regret choosing this over everything that I’ve gotten used to.

Smelling

I don’t smell anything here right now.

Wishing and Hoping

I’m wishing and hoping that I will have a successful career path next year. I hope that I could balance work and leisure, as well as my time for myself without compromising my time with my future husband.

I wish that everything will work out and will run smoothly as planned. If not then, I’d have to think of another plan to get back on my feet again.

Wearing

I’m wearing a blue and white stripes spaghetti nightgown.

Loving

I’m loving this weekend because Ino and I were able to hear mass tonight. I’m also happy that I was able to do my laundry and update my TSC.

Wanting

 I want to have this theme done already. I also want this month to be over so that I could start working at home, go to the gym and learn new things.

Needing

I need to budget my money wisely. I also need to sleep earlier and wake up earlier than usual. I also need to update my resume and prepare my documents soon.

Feeling

I feel uncomfortable because of my itchy throat. Having sore throat really sucks. On the other hand, I’m mentally and emotionally counting down the days that I’ll be leaving the company. I’m looking forward to the things that I can do and I can achieve.

I haven’t used my laptop for quite a while but I’m glad that I’m back to posting things again. 🙂

The Sunday Currently Vol. 13

Weekend is almost over and that means that my 3-day leave is already done. Actually, Sunday has just begun, but I’m writing this now because I may not have enough time to write later.

I spent most of my 3-day leave at home. Doing house chores and enjoying a bit of my me time. I spent half of it writing some updates on Twisted, catching up on some Korean TV series, playing some games and most of it in oversleeping and not sleeping on time.

Not very healthy, huh?

I haven’t posted much of my Sunday happenings because I got veerrryy lazy and I just didn’t feel like writing anything at all. But, I’m back. So, let’s get started.

Here’s my Sunday Currently:

Reading

It really has been ages since I’ve written anything here. I’m already on Chapter 23, which is about Valentine. I can feel the ending of this book and it’s taking me longer than expected because I’ve started reading a Filipino version of 50 Shade of Grey. At the same time, I’m also trying to read the English version on my tablet.

Listening

I can still hear the vibrations of the electric fan, and the voice over on the TV.  

Thinking

Thinking about the upcoming grammar test. I haven’t read anything or reviewed for it. I only have less than a week to start reading and reviewing.

Smelling

I can smell the scent of soup and shampoo because I just took a shower.

Wishing and Hoping

STILL Wishing and Hoping that this week would be more productive and less stressful. I hope I’ll be able to survive the working week without slacking or getting tired of going to work.

I think I’ve been writing this for a few weeks already and it still hasn’t changed. It’s slowly becoming my mantra. 

I’m also wishing and hoping that I’d get through this week without feeling so negative about things. I hope that the test won’t bother me that much so I can still work on the things that I need to concentrate on better.

I also hope and wish that I pass the test with flying colors. 🙂

Wearing

Wearing a long red sleeveless nightgown to bed.

Loving

Loving that I was able to relax this week. I feel quite energized to work and I miss my team! 🙂

Wanting

 I want to have this theme done already. At the same time, I just want to get the test done and over with.

Needing

I need to pay my bills in full. Seriously, I don’t want to have any problems with my budget anymore. It sucks.

Feeling

Feeling excited to be with friends again. Looking forward to the salary day. Looking forward to chatting with my students. Feeling nervous about the test. So, yeah.. mixed emotions.

The Sunday to Monday Currently Vol. 12

Happy father’s day!

The past week was very challenging but I was able to get through it. June is halfway done and that means that the grammar test is up. So, here’s my latest Sunday currently!

 

Reading

I was able to get past Magnus Bane’s chapter in The City of Bones. It’s already half of the year and yes, I’m not yet done in re-reading it. I’m now at Hotel Dumort, still the 2nd part of the book but I’m taking these baby steps as progress in my reading quest. 🙂

Listening

Aside from the usual vibrations of the electric fan and the sound of my keyboard tapping… My current earworm is Drag Me Down by One Direction. Nope, I’m not a Directioner but this all started when I was listening to Love Yourself, Hands to Myself and Perfect by Kaya May and Landon Austin on Spotify. 

 

Thinking

Thinking about the upcoming grammar test. I haven’t read anything or reviewed for it. I still have less than two weeks to hustle but I got caught up with so much things to do. 

Smelling

I can smell the scent of Koji San on my skin.

Wishing and Hoping

STILL Wishing and Hoping that this week would be more productive and less stressful. I hope I’ll be able to survive the working week without slacking or getting tired of going to work.

I think I’ve been writing this for a few weeks already and it still hasn’t changed. It’s slowly becoming my mantra. 

I’m also wishing and hoping that I’d get through this week without feeling so negative about things. I hope that the test won’t bother me that much so I can still work on the things that I need to concentrate on better.

Wearing

Wearing a short black flowery nightgown to bed.

Loving

Loving that I was able to enjoy the weekend with Ino. Our plan to officially celebrate at Hampton Gardens was a success! 

Wanting

 I want to have this theme done already.

Needing

Needing more time to prepare for my test. I also need to start preparing for our wedding.

Feeling

Feeling a bit upset that Ino hasn’t done anything about the wedding preps lately. I know that he’s busy with finding a job and getting his requirements settled. However, I’m just getting tired with hearing “I’ll do that this weekend.” but it takes so long before it gets done. I also feel quite disappointed because he promised that he will request for his CENOMAR this payday but he forgot.

I really want to be a very understanding girlfriend but as a human, I think I am also entitled to feel these things. The worst feeling in the world is getting your hopes up on people to keep their promises but they keep on forgetting what they have said or intended to do.

The Sunday Currently Vol. 11

 

It’s June 12! Philippine’s Independence Day!

I don’t have much to say but I’m doing this because it’s a Sunday once again. 🙂

 

Reading

I haven’t done any reading this past few days.  I was pretty occupied with gaming that’s why I haven’t read anything interesting. 

Listening

My current earworm is Randomantic by James Reid. Specifically the part “Haharanahin kita, san man tayo magpunta, yung tipong kahit wala lang
O kaya biglang may breakfast in bed, just to keep you interested
Lahat ay dahil wala lang (wala lang)
I just wanna do simple random things to say “I love you”
Ohh ohh I love you”

 

Thinking

Thinking about the big move on the 32nd floor, bills to pay for the upcoming payday and how this week will turnout. Overthinking? Yes.

Smelling

I can smell some fruity scent in the room.

Wishing and Hoping

STILL Wishing and Hoping that this week would be more productive and less stressful. I hope I’ll be able to survive the working week without slacking or getting tired of going to work.

Wearing

Wearing a black spaghetti-strapped dress and a pair of shorts because we’ll be sleeping in a few hours.

Loving

Loving that I was able to finish my misschesca‘s featured images and tags!! That means, I only have to re-calibrate my tags for this blog and hopefully, Ino can help me out with the theme soon. 🙂

Wanting

 I want to rest some more ’cause all I did was clean the house and not really take a rest. 🙁 I also want this week to be less stressful, more enjoyable and remarkable, and more interesting.

Needing

Needing more napkins! JK. 🙂 Groceries! I need to buy toiletries. I need to paymy bills in full. I also need to pamper myself but I still don’t have the means. :'( And, Oh! I still need an extension of my weekend. 

Feeling

Feeling mixed emotions. I’m tired, sleepy and hungry.

Woah! Where did the time go? It’s Sunday again (in another part of the world!) It’s practically a Monday, 1:46 AM, but because I forgot to make my Sunday Currently and I’m not yet sleepy, I decided to make one for fun.

Reading

I’m still reading The City of Bones. I’m on Chaper 11 which is a chapter about Magnus Bane. I just finished reading polandbananasBOOKS‘  Shadowhunters TV series review and her reactions about how stellar The Mortal Instruments series is made me want to read more and explore the downworlders’ world.

Listening

The vibrations of the electric fan and the humming of the air conditioner are still keeping me company at this hour.

Thinking

Thinking about how the week will turn out. We have a whole day workshop tomorrow and it sucks. Basically, I’m thinking about the coming work week and I can’t wait for the next weekend. 

Smelling

I can smell my hair conditioner because I just took a shower a few minutes ago.

Wishing and Hoping

Wishing and Hoping that this week would be more productive and less stressful. I hope I’ll be able to survive the working week without slacking or getting tired of going to work.

Wearing

Wearing a short black nightgown because we’ll be sleeping in a few hours.

Loving

Loving that I was able to finish my backlogs and that I’m on page 10 of misschesca. That means, I only have 3 pages left to edit before I move on to this site’s tags. :))

Wanting

Wanting for this week to be less stressful. I want more time to relax. I need more time to enjoy and just stare at nothingness and worry less about life.

Needing

Needing more motivation to go to work. Seriously, I’m getting bored with how redundant and habitual my work is becoming. 

Feeling

Feeling relieved because I have already uploaded the photos that I was meaning to post. Although, the reviews were a little sabaw, but at least I was able to finish it. 🙂

The Sunday Currently Vol. 9

 

It’s another Sunday! Ino and I just got back from Pulilan, Bulacan. It was a rainy week and according to the news, the rainy season has arrived!

 

Reading

I’m still reading Chapter 10 of Part 2 of The City of Bones. I know that it has been months since I re-read it and I haven’t finished it since. I’m also reading JamilleFumah’s latest chapter of Indecent Proposal on Wattpad. 

Listening

The vibrations of the electric fan and the humming of the air conditioner are keeping me company at this hour.

Thinking

Thinking about my smartphone, Ino’s latest decision in his career, going to work alone, the rainy days, my future plans. Yup! Overthinking as of the moment.

Smelling

I can’t smell anything in the room. Nothings stands out

Wishing and Hoping

Wishing and Hoping that this week would be better. I hope that things will work out fine and that the problems will be resolved.

Wearing

Wearing a yellow daster. It really feels comfortable most especially when you’re about to sleep. 🙂

Loving

Loving that I passed the grammar test. 🙂 Also, loving that I was able to update my blog (kahit papaano.)

Wanting

Wanting for this week to be less stressful. I want more time to relax. I need more time to blog. A week by myself? I mean a week at home alone. Haha! I miss having a me-time.

Needing

Needing more motivation to go to work. Seriously, I’m getting bored with work. I also need more motivation to do my weekly/ monthly schedule.

Feeling

Feeling bitin because I didn’t get to enjoy the weekend as I want it to be. I didn’t have enough time to be online, didn’t have enough time to update stuff. Medyo badtrip because I didn’t get to enjoy my weekend in my own way. Instead nag-laba ako, konting online, tinamad, tapos eto…

The Sunday Currently Vol. 8

I intentionally didn’t blog for weeks because I don’t have the heart to do it. I’ve been in a roller coaster ride and dealing with it was seriously damaging for me. Now that I’m back, I’m glad that I’m back on my feet again. Another week is here to stay.

 

Reading

I’ve been obsessing on the Vice Presidential vote tallies lately. This obsession led me to making a new twitter account which only focuses on reliable news and accessible information. I’ve made it a habit when I’m at work instead of trying to access social media during working hours.

Listening

The vibrations of the electric fan is keeping me company at this hour.

Thinking

Thinking about the grammar test. Oh, how this feeling lingers and agonizes me each and every time.

Smelling

I can’t smell anything today. I got sick last Friday which made our Hampton getaway nonexistent and now, I’m having runny nose the whole day.

Wishing and Hoping

Wishing and Hoping that I will pass the test and hopefully pass with flying colors. I need to be motivated to review. Seriously. Getting a passing score is never enough.

Wearing

Wearing a My Heart Says Choo Choo shirt by Mint and my polkadot shorts from Taytay, Rizal.

Loving

Loving my momentum in writing again. My backlogs are haunting me because I cannot manage my time well.

Wanting

Wanting this week to be a blast. I want this week to be more enjoyable than stressful if it is even possible.

Needing

Needing more motivation to blog about what transpired over the past few months for the photos I forgot to post and deliberately didn’t post here.

Feeling

Feeling sick because of the changing of the weather, stress, and other things I do not know. Dreading the weekend as always.

The Sunday Currently Vol. 7

 

My Sunday Currently should already be the 8th but because I was out of town last week, I wasn’t able to update my blog.

I’m currently at my hometown to visit my family and to vote for the elections tomorrow.

 

Reading

I’m currently reading my twitter timeline and After Us by Sourpatchedkid on Wattpad.

Listening

Listening to the ruffling of the leaves, the crowing of the rooster and the barking of the dogs.

Thinking

Thinking about how Ino and I ended up arguing about our jeepney mannerisms.

Smelling

Smelling the print of the newspaper on the desk. I don’t like it and I’m not intentionally smelling it, okay?

Wishing and Hoping

Wishing and Hoping that Ino and I will still patch things up and will put this incident behind us.

Wearing

Wearing a Baguio City summer capital of the Philippines T-shirt, a pair of CEU shorts and a pair of slippers .

Loving

Loving that I survived from not taking pills. The thoughts of suicide lost and I just decided to take a weekend off to think things over. I just hope that my decision was right.

Wanting

Wanting a fresher week to start, more opportunities to come, a better future, a better life, more proper and realistic decisions.

Needing

Needing more time to think things over and to contemplate on my life decisions. I also need to be tougher and happier.

Feeling

Feeling tired from all the depression that I’m feeling these past few weeks. I just want to be okay. I hope that I will be okay in time. It just sucks that I have to act all tough and happy when deep inside my world is crumbling apart. I don’t have a choice but I have to continue.

Thinking

Smelling

The Sunday Currenly Vol. 5

 

I almost forgot that I was supposed to do my Sunday Currently. I am already sleepy but I am fighting this sleepiness and laziness. So here it goes:

 

Reading

I’m currently reading What camera should I buy? Use our step-by-step guide

 

Listening

Listening to the clicking of the mouse, the sound of the vibrations coming from the electric fan and some typing sounds.

 

Thinking

Thinking about the compact camera that I’m going to purchase soon. 🙂

 

Smelling

Smelling my hair. It smells like the anti-dandruff shampoo of Palmolive Naturals.

 

Wishing and Hoping

Wishing and Hoping that my students will give me a high score for my TSR. I hope that I won’t get a 1 this month.

 

Wearing

Wearing a very old daster which was given to me by my Mama Babes when I was very young.

 

Loving

Loving that I got to finish my blog entries. Except for the few backlogs that I have because most of it are on my phone. I also need time to reorganize everything and write about a little something for each photo that I published today.

 

Wanting

Wanting a vacation. I want to feel that it’s summer by actually doing something that’s about summer. The very scalding temperature is out of the question.

 

Needing

Needing more time to blog, declutter my e-mails, publish photos on Google+ and also to update my recently published photos.

 

Feeling

Feeling tired from working out at the gym, publishing my entries and tolerating anger from someone who’s as moody as a pregnant woman.
