THE SUNDAY CURRENTLY | 04

Hi! It has been a while… again. School resumes tomorrow so I decided to squeeze in a post before everything else. We just had our three-week term break and all I could say is that it pretty much sucked. It was yet, the most unproductive vacation I ever had. I was so lazy to get anything done. But the truth is, I want to do something A LOT of things but I get overwhelmed by it so I end up doing nothing. Ever felt the same? No? Just me? Anyway, I did manage to (at least) get one thing done my whole vacay– I already know how to drive! Yay! I went to driving school for 7 days and learned all sorts of stuff about driving… or not? Unfortunately, my driving instructor SUUUUCCCCCKKKKKKSSSSSS. He’s too rude(???) for my liking. The tone of his voice and the way he tells me that I’m wrong about some driving stuff is just…. mean. I mean hello??? Cut me some slack here because I’m new at this and I’m still learning?! I did learn a few things though but he didn’t even care enough to teach me some things like how to turn on and off my park lights or how the windshield wiper works. Am I supposed to figure that out by myself? Sayang bayad. And one more thing– 7 days of driving school is just tedious. I got all excited the first 3 days but after that I just got bored. Maybe because of my instructor? Idk. But some advice, if you’re ever gonna enroll to a driving school, I suggest you just take the 5 day course only. Even so, I’m just happy that at least I already know how to drive before I turned 20! Going back, tough term ahead, time and again. I’ve been at Mapua for almost 4 years and I guess every term is really tough. Just have to work your butt off every time! So even though my whole being isn’t ready to go back to school yet and pretend like a responsible grown up, I have to because I don’t have much choice. Do I? Lol.

CURRENTLY

Reading
Just a few articles and facts about Riverdale and 13 Reasons Why. Every time I finish a series I just love reading facts and articles about it. Makes me love the show more. Going back, I am currently obsessed with these series! Which I’m gonna talk about on a separate post (because I am THAT obsessed lol) and hopefully it will be up by tomorrow or Tuesday!

Writing
Sunday Currently 04 and probably gonna get started on the Riverdale & 13 Reasons Why post. Wait for it!

Listening
Khalid’s American Teen album! Never knew that he was really good?! Location & Saved are my current favorites! 🙂 You can listen to it here!

Thinking
About all the things that I could have done during my 3-week term break. MAN THERE SURE IS A LOT! But I guess I can just do them in the coming week? I hope!

Smelling
The tapa I just cooked. Tapsi for dinner! Hehe.

Wishing
For peace of mind, seryoso. A lot of terrible things have happened lately and I’m glad that they’re all behind me now but for some reason some things still bother me? To the point that I can’t easily sleep at night (most nights I sleep at around 4am. Kaloka!) I just wanna feel “okay” again. Good vibes, please come at me!

Hoping
To feel better. As I’ve said, I just wanna feel okay again. Oh and of course, a good term ahead. Like always! Profs, please be good to me. 

Wearing
My favorite “clubmasterr” shirt and pink shorts with cute cat prints. Very comfy and short kasi ang init, bes.

Loving
The fact that I’m going to school tomorrow. I mean it’s kinda odd though because as I’ve said, di pa ko ready. But for some reason happy na din because I’d get to see my friends again! At least, productive days are ahead because of school. Ayoko na din maburo sa bahay + hello baon!!! HEHE.

Wanting
To watch Kathniel’s Can’t Help Falling In Love movie! I’ve read some tweets that it’s good daw and from the looks of it from the trailer, mukha nga! Saka nakakaintriga yung story! I hope I could watch it this week with my sister… or whoever? *libre nyo ko please*

Needing
A new set of my skincare products! I’m already running out of my micellar water, aloe vera gel, vitamin C serum and I need an acne drying lotion. But I still need to save up some more because they’re way too expensive! Hirap magpaganda ng balat, ha.

Feeling
Eh? I don’t really know. Can’t say I’m sad because I’m really not but I’m not happy either. Is it possible to feel nothing at most times? Anyway, here’s to better days!

How about you? Watchu been up to? 🙂

#ALLBYMYSELF

Hello, guys! How you doin’? *insert Joey’s voice from FRIENDS* How have you guys been? How’s vacation so far? Nakapag beach na ba? O staycation lang sa bahay? Whatever it may be, I hope you’re doing okay! Sobrang init talaga, no?!?!?! (lol, perpetual conversation starter) I swear I don’t know if I’m in Manila or Satan’s sweaty armpit. Ya feel me? I know you do. Anyway, given the extreme heat this summer, if you have nothing important to do outside I suggest you just stay inside the house. Buksan nalang ang aircon/electric fan to the highest level (at matulog), ganoin! Haha! And oh, drink lots and lots of water! Mahirap na baka ma-heat stroke or what… lol #GettyCares (naks). Okay, so everyone is just beginning their summer and I just started going to school again. Wow. Ok. So….

School (again) has officially started!  I always have this love-hate relationship with the first day/week of the term. I love the fact na medyo “chill” pa because it is still the first week. But on the other hand, I hate it for the reason that most profs don’t show up!! (yep, like always. every term, walang mintis!) It’s a first-day-of-school- kind of thing. I also hate it that I still get nervous. I don’t even know why. Considering that it’s the “first day of school” every 3 months on my case. Ewan ko ba, seeing a sea of people lined up on cashiers/registrars trying to pay their fees, trying to walk in on class without knowing anyone, all the unfamiliar faces, bleak stares, introducing yourself in front of the class, meeting your professors for the first and everything else in between, gives me nothing but S T R E S S. I still get random anxiety attacks though I’ve been studying for 13 years already. Nothing compares to the unavoidable back-to-school tension. Anyway, the title of this post says it all. I am (unfortunately) all by myself for the last term of the school year. (#sad  #loner). I don’t have any of my close friends as my classmates this term…. hay. Darn you, Mapua for giving out such shitty schedules and limited slots!!! *beastmode*. But to look at things in a more positive way, I guess this is somehow good. At least I’d exert extra effort on my classes because I have no one to depend on. Naks, Miss Independent! As to my professors… fortunately they’re all okay! I mean GREAT. They’re all great! 🙂 (tyG!) How about my classmates? Uh, let me put it this way…… I guess it’s too early to tell? But I met someone from my calculus class, I can’t remember his name but……. I think I’m gonna hate him for the next three months. Alam nyo yung typical na pa-pogi/pa-cool na guy na SOBRANG YABANG? Yep, he’s one of those. I know that it’s clearly none of my business but…… UGH. Okay, tama na. But aside from that guy, they’re all good and I think I can make it through all my classes this term. Except…. I miss Julian 😦 We were together 6 times a week before. I’ve been with him everyday for the last three months and I don’t know how to survive without him anymore. Ang oa pero true. (brb crying)

LIFE LATELY | 01

It’s already April! We are already on the 2nd quarter of the year! Where did the first 3 months of 2016 go? The months have went by too fast and I can’t keep up anymore. The last weeks have been very difficult for me. It has been a series of total let downs. I’ve dealt with a lot of stress, anxiety, sleepless nights, dreadful days and all the shitty stuff in between. But enough of that– my heart & mind is now at peace… again (well I hope it lasts longer now). To be honest, I never thought that I’d be this happy again. I cannot squeeze it all in here but believe me when I tell you that the way I was weeks ago was surely one of the worst things that had ever happened to me. But that’s life. “it all gets better” talaga ang theme ng buhay! 🙂

How about you guys? How’s life so far? I suppose that most of you are probably on vacation mode already– or maybe some of you are down to their last week(s) of school or will get some time off work and would probably have some fun soon! In any case, I hope you get to enjoy your summer vacay! As for me, maybe I won’t. Unfortunately, I’d be having classes while everyone else is busy travelling around the globe (or sleeping until noon time). #QuartermProbs. Making the most out of the remaining (vacation) days, though!

Moving on! I wrote this entry to let you know about how my (not so) boring life has been going on recently. As I have mentioned earlier, I’m glad that everything is getting better again. Hoping for far more greater things to come my way! Despite everything, I’m just thankful 🙂

So…. here are some of the things that keep me “busy”

Hi! It has been a while since my last The Sunday Currently post. I’ve been up to too many things lately and unfortunately none of them is “blog-worthy” or worth sharing so.. yeah. It’s already 10 days past April! How fast is that?! We are already on the 2nd quarter of the year! Sobrang bilis! Bat ganoin?! Di dapat ganoin! Only a week left before school starts again! Yep, we finally had our vacation last March 30. I was planning to put up a post about it but the past weeks have been nothing but stressful. There was a lot of (shitty stuff) going on at that moment. Anyway, what matters is here I am again writing up an entry! (yay) and can I just say…. tyG! My days are finally getting better again. 🙂

CURRENTLY

Reading
My past The Sunday Currently posts. It’s been a while (almost a month) since my last so I am kind of lost on how this thing goes! Medyo nalimutan ko na. Kailangan ko ng guide!

Writing
The Sunday Currently Volume 3 & I’ll probably start writing the “Life lately” entry (that I’ll be posting some time next week) after this one. Yay to productivity!

Listening
To my brother’s random upbeat/happy songs on his Spotify playlist. (Someday We’ll Know is currently playing! One my faves!)

Thinking
about all the to-dos I have to finish before my last week of vacation ends! I am currently trying to get my act together (like for real #weh) so I want everything to be organized.

Smelling
the apple-y smell of the floor cleaner (my brother’s currently cleaning the house… wow sipag!)

Wishing
for my mom’s better health (di naman siya ganon kalala) pero sana ma-ease na yung backpain nya. Please…..

Hoping
for a great term ahead! (yup, like always)

Wearing
a pink Hollister shirt and blue ombre shorts. A comfy combination of pambahay.

Loving
the fact that I’ve been waking up early & working out (naks) since Friday! I just loooove mornings! (even though mornings don’t like me that much)

Wanting
kitkat green tea! MAD CRAVINGS FOR KITKAT GREEN TEA. Someone buy me a box, please.

Needing
a new bag! All of my bags have already given up on me *sad face* and only a week left before school! Saan ko ilalagay mga gamit ko?! *ehem* parents *ehem* lol

Feeling 
Happy! (yay, finally) considering that I am on the road to better days, again! And the fact that I just  had tilapia and kangkong (favorite ulam in the world) for lunch a while ago? Happiness! 😛

How about you? How are you? What have you been up to? I hope you’re having a great day as I am!

TUESDAYS

My tuesdays (at school) are usually spent with my loves– Erika and Julian! These people are the ones that I have been with for the past 3 terms (more or less 9 months, almost a year). We always spend lunch time together. It’s like a weekly date for us three (since we don’t get to be with Erika that much because we have different schedules). It’s our time to catch up… and we really love to eat.

So anyways, I spent my last Tuesday of the term with Erika alone. Unfortunately, Julian was sick that he can’t go to school so he wasn’t able to join us. Erika and I ate at this Korean Restaurant, Red Table. Their food is delicious! AAAGGGHHHH BULGOGI!

I had their bulgogi deopbap! Probably one of the best bulgogis I ever had. Good job, Red Table!

THE SUNDAY CURRENTLY | 02

Gaaaah, the last few weeks have been one of the busiest weeks in my existence–schoolwise. 9th week has just ended; which means finals is approaching. Kaliwa’t kanan na ang last-minute projects, assignments, submissions, quizzes, reports, etc. Kaloka! But the good thing is, I’m only a week away from “vacation”! As I have mentioned in my previous entries, since Holy week came in a little early this year, we’d be having a week of “vacation” first before having our finals. Anyway, can’t wait for the last week to be over para makapagpahinga naman! Super pagod na sa lahat ng dapat tapusin. 

 

CURRENTLY

Reading
some random Articles on Marc and Angel LIFE HACK

Writing
The Sunday Currently Vol.2

Listening
to the sound of tv– random tv commercials as of the moment

Thinking
of ways to make my “vacation” productive. Kailangan din mag-aral para sa finals!

Smelling
the chocolate from the Chocolate Bliss I ate a while ago. Oh how I missed Sugarhouse!

Wishing
for “things” to get better. ( (( ((( positivity ))) )) )

Hoping
for a productive and less stressful week ahead!

Wearing
my favorite Artwork shirt and purple shorts

Loving
the new lip balm that my mom bought me! I’ve been having such dry, chappy lips over the past month… super hapdi huhu. Anyway, thank you Mommy!

Wanting
peace of mind. PEACE OF MIND. PEACE OF MIND. Pretty, pretty please.

Needing
more hours a day and more days a week. 24 hours a day and 7 days a week is (currently) not enough to do all the stuff that I have to do.

Feeling
Mixed emotions– as always. Happy and sad. But 45% happy and 55% sad. I’m happy at the way (some) things are right now. But all these things inside my head just keep on ruining everything. Have you ever felt like you’re happy but then suddenly a negative thought just pops into you’re head. then bam! Everything is just ruined. Oh well, matatapos din ‘to. (I hope!)

 

Anyway, hope you had a great weekend! And I wish you all a fruitful weekend ahead! Here’s to better days and positivity!

Feeling extra productive today since I wasn’t able to go to school for I was not feeling well. Super sakit ng ulo ko! Hay nako Julian, kasalanan mo ‘to! Haha kdding! Anyway, 3rd blog entry for the day, yay!

So yesterday was just a typical day– muntik nanaman ako ma-late kasi naubusan nanaman ng UV (well, what’s new?!). Super hassle talaga palagi ng Thursday Mornings ko. Hay. So while I was (finally) on my way to school, my classmate texted me that our professor won’t be able to make it to school. So yay! Okay lang kahit ma-late!!! (lol) I reached school at exactly 9 am. There was just a guy student who was the substitute teacher for that day. We just had a seatwork, that’s all. Fast forward, I called Erika so that she could prep up for we are going to watch a movie. We already had everything planned last week. So came 12 in the afternoon, Erika and I met at the school gate and went to SM Manila together. As usual, hindi nanaman namin alam kung saan kami kakain. Haha! She said she was craving for mac and cheese and I was kind of too(?) so we ate at Pizza Hut. Ang sarap ng mac and cheese nila! Huhu *sobs*.  While waiting for our order, I went up and bought the tickets.

#noselfies together because… hindi kami ganon ni Ery. We are selfie addicts ourselves pero kapag magkasama kami (for some unknown reason) ‘di kami sanay na we take a lot of pictures together. Siguro dahil lagi kami naman na kami magkasama. Hehe

WORST CLASS EVER

My COE128 course is probably the most annoying, corny & boring class that I have ever attended in my life. EVER. It’s only week 6 but I already ran out of reasons to keep me going to class. I have been studying for 13 years and I already had a pretty good amount of professors and classmates that I have been with, that’s why I’d have to say that THIS IS THE WORST CLASS EVER. Why?

First of all, the subject itself is boring. At first you thought it’s simple but at some point you’d realize that it’s waaaaay too complicated that you won’t wanna listen to whatever your professor has to say. Kebs naman sya, magegets naman, kaya naman… pero ewan ko ba. Di talaga ko naeenganyo makinig.

Second, my professor decided she wants an alphabetical seating arrangement… which probably means that I’m seated at the back AGAIN. I totally hate it. Mas nakakatamad makinig. Ang tangkad at ang laki pati ng mga nasa harap ko. Jusko paano.

Third, my professor is sooooo boring as well. No offense. Yup, she knows what she’s discussing, she knows what she’s teaching us– I can definitely see that and I can probably say that she is good at the subject itself but she’s not so good at the “teaching” part. She doesn’t provide a learning environment that is “enjoyable” for the students. You get what I’m saying? She’s a little too bookish (figuratively), which makes it a lot harder for me to listen to her because IT. IS. SO. BORING. (jeez, how many times have I already used that phrase?!) I mean with all the rules and such like bawal ma-late or else you’ll either sing or dance in front of everybody in the classroom. Recitation EVERY MEETING. EVERY MEETING. Or else you’ll perform in front of everybody, again. Oh ‘di ba? Ang lakas lang maka-high school vibes. Well you know, every once in awhile it’s okay to treat us like that but to do it for the entire term? Not a good idea. Though I’d have to say that I’m thankful that she doesn’t rush when it comes to teaching, she even does it step by step for the students to understand– for the students to be able to cope up. It’s a breath of fresh air. It’s a break from all the other professors who teach soooo fast as if someone is actually chasing them from behind. Buuuuut… but, but, but… it’s also too much. I don’t know if somehow I already got used to fast-paced learning that’s why I already find her ways tiresome and a bit stodgy. Basta masyado siyang old school. Hay, ewan. Can’t find the right words to use. Okay naman sana siya eh… kaso di talaga siya okay. (lol what?!) Oh and one more thing, she’s too damn confusing. I can’t figure her out. She’s kind of laid back but strict too.

Lastly, my classmates. Most of them are guys. 99% of them. Okay so HEAR ME ON THIS– THEY ARE THE MOST ANNOYING CLASSMATES IN THE WORLD…THE UNIVERSE, RATHER. (wow Pia Wurtzbach lang? Lol!) But seriously speaking, nakakairita sila. Nakakairita talaga. Sobrang high school ng attitude. Puro kasi geeks, ugh. Basta ang babaw nila and they give out A LOT of side comments–which by the way is very annoying. Like for an instance my professor relates the lesson to some “hugot lines” and they’d all be like “OOOOOHHHHH” or “AAAAAWWWWWW” And the worst expression? It would have to be “Boom!” My goodness. Sobrang high school. Jejemon. Yuck. Ew. (I’m a mean bitch right now, I know). I can never rant enough about how annoying these people are. Sometimes I feel like they’re all born to annoy the sh*t outta me thrice a week. Oh hell.

So in summary, yup! Worst class ever it is. Well, wala naman ako magagawa. It’s not like I have a choice. 4 more weeks. 4 more weeks ng pagtitiis and it’ll all be over. Kapit lang, self. U got this.

It’s Valentines day today! (#NoLovelife #NoDate lol) Happy Valentines day, everyone! I just spent the whole day at home, figuring out what to do. Super unproductive day, though. I hope you all had a great day today! … because I did not. Haha kidding… not. After weeks of thinking things through, I decided to join the bandwagon! So here it is, my Sunday Currently vol. 1 😊

Reading
“The Sunday Currently” entries on tumblr. Wanna see what people have been up to!

Writing
The Sunday Currently Vol 1 😊

Listening
To my V-day playlist on Spotify. Love is in the air? Lol!

Thinking
About life.. I guess? I don’t now but lately I’ve been contemplating about my life and what to do about it. You know, realizations & such.

Smelling
The pungent smell of the chemicals in my hair. (Kakapa-rebond ko lang last week!)

Wishing
For peace of mind… better days, please.

Wearing
A black shirt from the Foundation day of our school that I got last year and my fave comfy shorts.

Loving
The song All About Us by He Is We and Owl City. Gee, I’ve been listening to this song over the past two weeks, I think? I just looooove  everything about the song! But nope, I don’t find the lyrics relatable. I just love the melody, rhythm or whatever you call that. Plus! I told my brother to listen to it and he is currently loving it now as well. Hehe!

Wanting
A venti  iced Caramel Macchiato & choco glazed doughnut from Starbucks.

Needing
Someone to talk to about everything that I’ve been keeping inside. I. NEED. TO. LET. IT. ALL. OUT

Feeling
A bit of every emotion about all the current happenings. Both happy and sad. Everything right now is just a big blur of confusion. I just hope everything will fall into place. Positive vibes lang, ganoin!

THE WEEKEND

February 6th

  • Saturday classes suck forever.
  • Wanna know what sucks more? I only had one class. ONE CLASS.
  • But looking at the bright side, I finally finished Kyla’s 18th entry! Oh dear God it took me 5 hours to finish and proofread the whole entry (which by the way, took me literally a week to get it all together)

February 7th

  • Two exams on a Sunday. Wow I love my life. *note the sarcasm*
  • got a high score on my diagnostic exam! Wohoo!
  • got a passing grade on my HUM25 Quiz!! AAAHHHH (hirap ng philosophy of technology, FYI)
  • It feels great because not to brag but I did well on my exams that day considering that I did not study much…  kasi wala talaga akong nagets + the articles are just too long & boring to readHe he talk about luck!
  • BEST. SUNDAY. EVER.

February 8th

  • The original plan was to get a keratin treatment but I ended up getting a rebond treatment instead.
  • Cancellation of plans– I was supposed to accompany my younger brother find his suit for the Prom this Saturday but I spent more hours on the salon than I expected.
  • A random stranger at the salon told me that I look like Bianca Umali. (But I don’t think so… ang layo, eh? But I’ll take that as a compliment. Ganda kaya ni Bianca Umali! Thanks though, Miss!)
  • There was quite an unpleasant scenario that happened back at the salon. GEE. IT WAS HORRIBLE. HOLY GUACAMOLE.
  • I’m finally friends with this hairdresser Chesca (who is gay btw) who did my hair earlier. I’ve seen him several times and we’ve already had an encounter before but we didn’t get to talk much because I thought he was masungit, mataray and all but turns out.. he’s not! Yay.
  • SPENT 9 FFRRREEEAAAKINNNNN HOURS AT THE SALON. MAN, THAT’S TIRING, SRSLY.
  • But I’m so glad I finally got my hair fixed after 10 years!!! (I’m exaggerating) Gone are all those bad hair days.
  • Finally home by 10 in the evening.
  • WENT HOME TO ALCAPONE DOUGHNUTS & COFFEE CRUMBLE ICE CREAM!!!! CAN U HEAR ME SCREAMING *happy dance*

Long weekend well spent! #happygirl
