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
Good writers and how I am not one: A novel
Writers are growing on me recently (and no, I’m not talking about authors of our favorite YA novels — although they’re awesome too).
I was never one of those lucky ones who are able to construct sensible sentences or — in a blogger’s case — blog posts (Exhibit A: This blog post alone). I was always the rambling type. I feel like I’m better at voicing out my thoughts rather than writing it (maybe I should start a YouTube channel). The only time I’m able to get the good stuff out of my head is when I feel depressed which, obviously, isn’t an option (I’d never go down that drain again) or when I lie awake at night and stare at the ceiling then I think about all the mysteries of the cosmos or when I’m in the shower (don’t judge me, I know you think about the mysteries of the world too when in said place).
I envy people who have the ability to put their thoughts into paper and create words able to touch your souls and have you going like “oh my god, that is so true”. Good writers have it in them to tell you something you already know but are still able to inject an important piece of information you never noticed the first time (does that make sense?).
Moral of this rant: Good writers should consider themselves lucky because I’d kill to be one (just kidding, i was just exaggerating — don’t worry).
P.S. I know that the title of this blog post sucks. I’m not good at creating such things.
P.P.S. I’m back — FINALLY — with lots of tricks up my sleeves *wink*.
5 → Last day of the Christmas vacation. I keep seeing “school tomorrow” tweets and it’s getting out of hand. I tried completing all my requirements… I really did.
6 → Back to school. It’s so hard waking up in the morning knowing that it’s the first day of the week. Also got my Belle de Jour planner today!
7 → First set of long tests today. Elective Math and is a pain in the ass.
8 → Second set of long test today. Math and Science were a pain in the ass.
9 → Finally free from tests… kind of. Got grounded for the first time. although I don’t actually feel grounded.
10 → Finally Friday!!! My uncle unexpectedly arrived from NY. No shoes for me though. Only chocolates. I crey.
Here’s a resolution plucked out from my list (not that I really have one… i just… i mean a physical list… i don’t have one… nevermind). Be more productive. Not only in school or in blogging but in everything (even playing LoL… ha… ha… kidding… kind of). But here’s the thing, I failed to follow it since the first day of the first month of the year. Anyway, I hope this turns out great for me.

a serious fucking problem in society that needs to be stopped immediately
