Life lately: Watchlist

Imagine me making this blog post on Valentine's Day, with a glass of champagne on my bedside table, and simultaneously listening to a bunch of sappy love songs on Spotify. I don't even know why I decided to drink a glass of champagne today, but I just feel like I want to.  Coincidentally, today also marks the third week of me being temporarily disabled since the accident. And reality check? Fortunately, my sanity is still intact.

Worst day of my life

I always take pride in being healthy. Healthy in the sense that I rarely get sick, and when I do, it’s just the usual headache, coughs and colds. I’ve never been so sick enough to get hospitalized or operated. 

And then in the morning of January 24 — the thing I feared the most happened. 

A kiss.


It was one fine evening and they are sitting together on a rooftop while looking at the stars one night. She lit his cigarette and uttered the word which sounded more of a demand than a request.

This happened.

2017 happened. I honestly can't decide if this year is amazing or absolute shit. Aside from this blog being born with my very own domain, I spent the first quarter of my year, trying to survive school by setting my alarm for every 15 minutes until it was time to wake up, and drag myself out of bed. The bad days were over until I finally got the courage to speak out and tell my parents that I'm losing my sanity and I don't want to wake up miserable again. I quit school. And that was the best decision that I've made. 

People's Paradise

In lieu of wet and cold Salzburg photos, I am (late) posting one of my beach trips with my best friend Jade. This was really not spontaneous but it was definitely unplanned.

Wow, that did not make any sense at all. Lol.

Okay, let me explain. It wasn't spontaneous in the sense that the idea didn't spring to our minds that morning and we decided to get on with it. Months before I went home, we were really planning on going out of town - just the two of us - for some good old bonding. It was just that we had no idea where to go. Finally, we talked about it over Messenger, decided when to go, but still never got to decide where to go.

Until the night of September 24, we were still arguing and did not seem to have a well polished plan. "Should we go to Guimaras? Ok but where in Guimaras? Tatlong Pulo? Or we can go to Roxas! No? What about Boracay? Still no? Okay te sige linte ma Villa Baybay nalang ta ah!" Hahahahahahahaha we are an exquisite waste of time to each other sometimes.

Basta, let's go. Anywhere. To any beach!
