I admit to being a terrible blogger. I did not intend to write a blog entry tonight but the excessive problems that I’ve been encountering in LoL (League of Legends, in case you didn’t know) convinced me otherwise. There’s absolutely no excuse as to what I’ve been doing these past few days. I’ve been trying to be a better blogger—under a shade that is. I’ve been drafting posts from my trip to Singapore and Malaysia (which was like, a month ago). I’m trying, really. It will probably be up soon. Real soon.
It’s exactly 2:35 (at least that’s what my clock currently says) and basically I need to pick up a gift for my friend, prepare my outfit and my things for the party later, meet up with a friend at 5:30 then head to our friend’s party. Stay there from 6-7:30 then I have to go home alone to try and catch my volleyball training (I missed two meetings in a row so I need to attend this one). My training starts at 6 then ends at 8 so I probably only have 15 minutes to train.
Let me just say, I hate overlapping schedules. They make me crazy. Also, the procrastinator in me is stopping by and saying hello (she’s writing this entry instead of doing said things above). Good luck to me.
Let’s Talk: TV Shows
Since summer has yet to end, we still have a month before saying goodbye to late nights, long hours of sleeping, and the beach and all it’s glory (or in my case—chlorine-filled pools).
If you guys didn’t know, I have a penchant for TV shows—series, if you may. I enjoy marathoning (yes, that is now a word) heaps of episodes all in a day. Here’s a few of my favorite TV series and a couple that I really need to finish:
The Vampire Diaries
This is the first ever series I started. I started watching it when I was a freshman in high school. I love vampires but not to the point that I’d actually kill to be one. I can assure you that this series is a must watch. The Vampire Diaries is now on it’s 5th season. But hey, if I can catch up, you can too.
You need to watch this because Dylan O’Brien and Daniel Sharman. That’s all I can say. Okay, I’m kidding. Before anything else I would like to tell you guys that I’ve never liked werewolves (maybe as animals, but as fictional characters? nah). But ever since I started Teen Wolf (last year), my love for wolves blossomed. It’s that good, I swear. Teen Wolf just finished season 3-B and season 4 is (hopefully) on it’s way!
The Carrie Diaries
Just recently started this amazing series. The Carrie Diaries is really fun and light and perfect for teenagers like myself. It teaches tons of things and gives perfect advice. I’m looking forward to continuing this because I really really like it.
Awkward is a really entertaining series. I really enjoy watching it but that doesn’t necessarily mean that I love it. Although if you start this, you will be jealous of Jenna. I warned you. Awkward is now on it’s 4th season (I think).
I started this series ages ago. This is actually one of my favorite series. I finished season 5 last year so hopefully I can start season 6 soon since it’s summer and all. Also, Gossip Girl ended last 2012.
Pretty Little Liars
Currently stuck in season 2. Pretty Little Liars isn’t really my cup of tea but it is intriguing. I started this ages ago and I really want to know what happened to the girls.
This is actually a new series. The reason why I started this is because I was told that it was a modern day Romeo and Juliet (hence the title?) and you guys know (okay, probably not) that I’m a sucker for anything Romeo and Juliet. If you liked I Am Number Four (the movie because I haven’t read the book), maybe this will tickle your fancy too. Starcrossed is only on it’s first season.
I also want to start a new series so if you have any suggestions, feel free to leave them on my ask box!
While half of the country’s population is probably soaking up the sun (sand, beach waves, etc.), here I am soaking up radiation from my gadgets. I was given a chance to bathe in a chlorine filled pool and I blew off my chances. I only stayed in the pool for 3 hours. I swear I’m only regretting it now. Also, I did not take a lot of pictures (what with the lack of waterproof gadgets which I need to save up for) because I wouldn’t risk the life of my camera for pictures (lol).
Hope everyone is having an amazing summer!
The Versatile Blogger Award
No fancy photo to accompany this entry because I don’t have Photoshop on this computer I’m using at the moment so that sucks.
- First, thank the person who awarded you and include the link to their blog.
- Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly and include a link to their blog.
- Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself in your blog post.
Again, thank you to ate Je!
Here are the 15 bloggers I choose:
Here’s 7 random facts about me:
- I joined the Tumblr family last April 30, 2011.
- I am a clean freak but I don’t mind having a messy room.
- My dream destination is Florida. Not Paris nor New York nor LA (well I love those too a LOT), but Florida.
- I like hospital food.
- I have been scolded by my mom a number of times for being weird.
- We own life sized characters namely: ET, Darth Vader, R2D2, a Stormtrooper (I think) and an alien from Aliens and Predators. All of them scares me (except for Vader) and thank God they’re already stored in the garage.
- I get jealous easily.
So that’s that I guess. I’m about to prepare for a TVD marathon with my friends so I’m signing off at the moment.
January, February and March Wrap Up(?!)
I should be catching up on YouTube videos I haven’t watched but said platform is crashing and acting all strange and funny so I thought, what better alternative than to write blog posts since I’ve been MIA for the past month(?) or two (??). Either way, here I am sitting on my bed, listening to an acoustic playlist I found on 8tracks, and trying to write a decent blog entry. Enough chitchat. Let’s move on.
During a span of 3 months, I was able to read a total of… *queue drum roll*
4 books. Wow. That is a new record, just… wow. I’m in a major reading slump, don’t judge.
Catching Jordan by Miranda Kenneally
Read my review on Catching Jordan here.
Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler
I loved Twenty Boy Summer. I won’t be raving about it here that much but I will be writing a review about it on my Goodreads.
How to Be a Hepburn in a Hilton World by Jordan Christy
How to Be a Hepburn in a Hilton World is my first non-fiction read. It’s like a little guide on being classy like Audrey. Not my favorite non-fiction book. I think it only filled my mind with too much information that doesn’t really cover the main idea of the book. The author kept going around in circles and I was convinced she was at lost for words so she was just gibberish (at least to me) during the second half of the book.
A and D by Louisse Carreon
A&D was your average Wattpad story. Sure it was cute but it wasn’t my cup of tea. It was okay.
I hope I could finish the books I started to read but again, i’m in a reading slump (hopefully not for long). But you know, it’s okay to take a break every once in a while. After all, at the end of the day it’s still our choice to make whether we pick something up or not.
Life is Bittersweet
My lack of blog posts is unjustifiable, I couldn’t muster enough sensible ideas about anything, the weather sucks (the level of humidity is getting on my nerves), I’m in a major reading slump (I haven’t read more than four books in the past 3 months) but other than that, my social life had been nothing but awesome. I got not just one but two pictures with my crush (yes old school love but whatever) and my girl friends and I have been watching our guy friends’ volleyball games. Also, I’m learning how to play volleyball and enjoying it (even though my arms says otherwise).
Went to school anticipating makeup examinations then went to Kyla’s after school for a movie marathon. I have this theory that people don’t really watch that many movies during said activity. I have a feeling this is gonna be the highlight of my day.
I can officially say I am now inspired to the brim! These past few days has been nothing but a plethora (read: PLETHORA) of requirements for school and projects that are a pain to make (I blame the soon to be two weeks of a project to test our entrepreneurial skills), late night hangouts with old friends and most especially, prom!
Speaking of prom, here are a few photos (heads up: low quality ip4 photos ahead) to bring a little color to this dull post:
And here’s two photos of my after prom hair (that I wish I could wake up to every morning):
Now I’m signing off for a couple of hours. I have to attend to said requirements and hopefully finish them by tonight! x
