Reading Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. Loving it so far!
Writing another “Currently” post. Hopefully I can finish and publish it asap!

Thinking about my test in Physics last week. So afraid to look at my marks!!!
Smelling like powder because of my baby cologne. :)
Wishing for serious Physics skills. Badly needed!
Hoping for a good weather this week ahead.
Wearing my favorite PJs. These are super comfy!
Loving school so far and this is the truth.
Wanting to watch Scandal already but I’m trying hard to stop myself until the current season is over. I really don’t like waiting for the next episode on this one because IT GETS TOO INTENSE I CAN’T, OKAY.
Needing a part-time job to support my ~lifestyle~ HAHAHA. Seriously though, hook me up!
Feeling bloated after that Pumpkin Pie Latte. But, I’m gonna say this again… NO RAGRETS. Haha *wink wink*

My {Life Lately} According to Instagram 
It’s kind of sad that I almost always have to start my blog post nowadays with “Hey guys, I’m still alive!” or “Sorry, readers.” (but I really am sorry, readers). I’m not gonna go about my excuses again because you know how it is, so let’s just jump right to what has been happening with my life lately.
I really try to update my instagram account as much as I can to keep you guys updated on my whereabouts (WOW, CELEBRITY?!). It’s been kinda like my “photo blog” — if that’s still a thing — to makeup for the blog posts that my blog has been lacking for a long time now (BOO). It’s been almost 3 months since I landed in Canada (yes, I live here now!) and A LOT has happened and I can’t believe I haven’t even made time to blog about any of those things. So now, I’m going to try and squish them all into this post (hopefully I don’t miss anything) and I’m blogging in bullets because, let me say this again, bullets make life so much easier.
I got to experience two summers in a year because I left a month after the summer (in PH) and it was summer when I got here. And boy I just said three summers (now four) in one sentence! Phew!
When we got here it was all about bonding with the cousins, food, new adventures (getting to know the country, it’s people, how things work, etc.).
While counting the days to our big road trip to Alberta (we live one province away) and reuniting with some family members from the States, we did a lot of swimming and fishing and I did a lot of sleeping (I had jet lag for almost a week). I also met my new BFF that is Netflix.
Our Alberta trip was all about reconnecting with nature and the people we’re with, whom we haven’t seen for so long. We went camping and we did a lot of walking and hiking, then more walking. Alberta is magnificent though, so the total of 32-hour drive (to and from) was totally worth it!
I’ve been having breakouts since I got here. It’s crazy because I don’t think I’ve ever had breakouts during puberty. I’ve had a pimple or two popping out here and there but NEVER A FOREHEAD FULL OF ACNE. And my dark (under eye) circles??? The ‘bags’ are becoming more like suitcases (but this one’s probably my fault).
I’ve done a lot of reading in the summer as well, thank goodness for the Jake Epp Library. And when school started, I found out that my Language teacher is also a bookworm. She has a wall full of books in her classroom! (it’s like God and Seshat got together and said, “We love you, Iyee.”— awesome, awesome, awesome).
I haven’t gone to the movies since we left the Philippines (but I’ve seen TFIOS cos I just had to — hallelujah internet) because, guess what — they just closed down the movie house before we got here. Though according to the city website (yes, we have one) they’re actually currently building a new movie house to replace the old one and it’s supposed to open next month, so it should be open for when Mockingjay part 1 comes out. *squeals*
I have a new man in my life. His name is Tim and he makes really good coffee, tasty donuts, and the yummiest strawberry-cream cheese strudels I’ve ever tasted!
I am super close to surviving a whole month of high school in Canada. There would be 9 more months but I’m sure it will be over in a whim. Time is really going by so fast but I’m enjoying it.
I still can’t get over how attractive Canadians are. I have schoolmates who look like Andrew Garfield, Taylor Swift, and Chloë Moretz among others. I’m not even kidding! Plus I have this classmate who’s so handsome I always keep forgetting that he’s a teenager and I’m sooo trying not to develop a crush because he’s probably two years younger than me (still, he’s of legal age already, eh? *wink* LOL)
Last but most definitely not the least, it’s autumn. I fall even more in love with this season as more leaves fall on the ground. Everything is just so beautiful — the sights, the smell, and my hair is loving this weather.
That’s all folks! For now… :)
Laters!

Thoughts Unveiled #21

"What’s your edge?"

When I was still in school we had this interview thingy for Personality Development and I got asked the question above. We all know me — I’m not very good at talking and interviews involve a lot of that plus three pairs of eyes scrutinizing me plus I hate not being able to really think about my answer before answering a question. So, I went on about being matured for my age and some other shit I will not bore you with.

Anyway, I’ve been thinking about that question ever since and I came up with an answer that I think makes more sense and I can actually be proud of (maybe).

I was just thinking how people are different mixtures of different things. We may have a trait or a skill or a talent that’s the same with others, but that’s not really all you’ve got. No two people are exactly the same. Heck, even identical twins or triplets are different from one another. So really, all I can think of to answer that question is that I’m me. That’s my edge. That’s what separates me from the others. That’s what makes me different and that’s what makes me stand out. You see, if I say that my edge is I can sing, or I can cook dessert, or I work hard, I’m sure there are at least thousands of other people who are the same and thousands more that are better than me in doing those things. But nobody else can be me. And I may not be perfect, and I’m far from it, I know. But that’s what sets me apart from the rest of the people on earth. I am a different mixture from everybody else and nobody can take that away from me, the same way I can’t take away another person’s personality and self.

So. I’ve said my piece. What about you, what is your edge?


Information Overload!!! (TMI Tag)

I’ve been wanting to do this for a while now but life got in the way (excuses, excuses lol), but now it’s finally here! I also did another tag on my Youtube channel where I answered more basic questions. In case you haven’t seen it yet, click here. Anyway, here goes nothing. :)

20: Where do you go when you’re sad? I don’t get sad easily, so if I’m sad, there might be a pretty good reason and I’d probably be crying or I might want to cry, so I’d definitely just go to my room so I could cry in peace.
21: How long does it take you to shower? I want to lie about this but my friends might read it and they’ll bash me forever for sure. Sooo, I gotta tell the truth and nothing but the truth lol. 30mins to an hour. But I could make it 5mins if I want to. Kidding, 10mins minimum.

42: Favorite flavor of sweet? Vanilla or dark chocolate or white chocolate. One can’t just choose one flavor of sweet, it’s simply preposterous!

"Goodbyes are important, even if they’re scary and awkward. So always, always, say goodbye."


Thoughts Unveiled #20

I always have to remind myself that if a person really wants to get involved with you, really wants to talk to you, really wants to see you and be with you, that person would do anything — everything to make it happen. No excuses. And I’m not just talking about romance.

It gets tiring, you know. You make all the efforts to save a relationship no matter how obviously things are falling apart. You reach out to them because you love them and you want to keep them in your life, but what will you do if they don’t want to stay?

It breaks my heart but I think it’s time to let go. I’m done doing too much of my part. I’m done forcing myself into someone’s life when they obviously don’t want me there anymore. I’m done making all the efforts. I’m done. I am so fucking tired. Goodbye.
