Journal || Where have I been? Also HAPPY 5 YEARS?! sorta…

Hello, lovelies!!! It’s been more than a month since I last posted! Why? Well, may I inform you that my online class has started and IT IS HARD. HARDER THAN FACE TO FACE CLASSES! I’ve been adjusting lately in this new kind of setup, this new normal as we all say, but geez this is hard, harder than I expected it to be.

So you may wonder why is it so hard? I am in the comfort of my home. Food is here. I don’t need to get up early and endure the 45 minutes just to go to school. Etc., etc. Well, yeah true, but online school is so demanding. True that I don’t need to wake up early but I have to check my mail from time to time. But, I am still lucky to continue my studies despite of this pandemic. 

How about you? Do you have online classes too? Let’s talk! 

OKAY. HERE IT IS. HAPPY 5 YEARS!!!!! 🥳🥳🥳🥳 although I haven’t posted much until this past few months. I may not be active but I have followed blogs that had inspired me to write, to live, to love, to read more!!!

To my followers, even just my viewers, I love you guys! 💖 If you think I not noticing you, I see you. I cherish you. I love you. Thank you for being part of this long long journey.

Journal || FLICKER by Niall Horan

October 20, 2017, Flicker by Niall Horan came out. I am happy and devasted at the same time because of two reasons: 1. I don’t have enough money to buy the album, and 2. My father will found out about it and he will scold me for this.

I know you’ll be like, “C’mon! It’s for your happiness! It’s not like you’re buying illegal or something.” or maybe you don’t buy my reasons, but I’m sorry it’s true. BUT NOW, I am happy to announce that I BOUGHT THE ALBUM with the help of my friend. I’m so so so happy! I’ve been longing for this album for three years now, and now that I have the physical copy, I am the happiest fan in the world! Oh my. I am so happy.

I hope I could buy Heartbreak weather soon.


What about you lovelies? Are you a fan of Niall Horan? If not who? Let’s discuss! Leave a comment!

Journal || When it rains, it reminds me of you.

Hello, lovelies! It’s been a week since I’ve posted. This will be a short journal.

It’s been a hard week for me. My pet cat died and I didn’t handle it well. She was a few weeks old when we rescued her from the storm. She was in a box, alone. Her name was ‘Ulan’ a Tagalog term meaning rain in English.

I love her so much. No days come by that I don’t miss her. I always believe that all animals go to heaven so that I won’t get sad when an animal dies especially in unfortunate ways.

To Ulan, I hope you’re doing great. When it rains, it reminds me of you. You made rain a bittersweet memory of you.

Journal || The reason why I consider books as a luxury

Hello, lovelies! I will share a topic that some of you might relate to; books are a luxury. For me, books are so expensive. I always take care of it, never drew a line, or fold its page as a sign of bookmark. It’s like a baby to me. I value a book because, for me, it is expensive.

how much do electronic school signs cost ---ballpark figure?

I have a few reasons.

  1. I don’t come from a family that buys stuff besides what is necessary. And for that, books are considered wants.
  2. Books are so expensive here in the Philippines. A book’s minimum price is at Php 300. That sh*t is expensive. Most of the book I would love to read is at Php 400+. I know there are second-hand books, eBooks (some), blah blah blah. STILL EXPENSIVE! 
  3. Another thing, the place where I live have limited book stores and no public libraries to request a book! 

Those are the main reasons why I consider a book a luxury and why I small number of reads within a year. Last year, my goal was two books a year. But this year my goal is ten. Thanks to hoarding and gifts from my family and friends. 

Buying books isn’t normal in our family. I started reading when I was in 7th grade. It was introduced to me and I got addicted to it. When I said addicted, meaning I didn’t eat lunch for a week just to buy a book because I simply could not afford them. Good thing that I have friends that lend me books and helped me save money in a good way. I’m very thankful to them. 

I love reading. I do. It delivers you to a different world. It also has the capability to change one’s life and it puts you into a new perspective. It’s an enlightenment. A gift to society. 

So what do you think lovelies? Do you agree or disagree? Have any thoughts? Let’s have a discussion! Leave a comment!

Here’s why I don’t have much posts in my blogs.

I’m one of the people who had a hard time expressing feelings and thoughts, so I most-likely keep it to myself. But then, it came to me that I must express myself in ways where I could put out my thought and not keep it to myself it must be out there in the world, communicate. I had this blog for like 3 years and yet I couldn’t find time and words to post. I rarely had time to post something that came up to my mind. I’m struggling. I am. I even couldn’t write in my diary!

I hope that I would frequently write and post here. It could be about book review or writing like a journal or just a simple thought. I would like also to engage in any discussions with you. I really love this community that’s why I am trying hard to be here, with you all. I’m looking forward to the future of this blog.
