AYO! By God’s grace, I am healed (from chickenpox). Thank you for your prayers and well wishes. #deeplyappreciated I had a really speedy period of recovery–missed only a total of 3 school days; didn’t experience worse symptoms (aside from intense itch and mild fever). I feel glad to return to school after a week in time for the Lasallian Festival which took place from the 27th until the 4th of March (and I can’t wait to write an entry about how the week went). So with that being said, here’s another volume of your fave segment here on my blog. Welcome to ATM with Bryan!

Happy March everyone! A lot of friends and resounding names are born on this month. March babies, you know what to do! Anyway, I’m opening this month with this very entry that you’re reading since I didn’t get the chance to write one during the previous month (blame it on Valentine Week, Prelim/Chickenpox Week and Lasallian Festival for consuming majority of my time). In fact, I missed a lot of things–haven’t updated my planner, been sleep deprived for a week now and put reading (of novels) into a halt. Hoping to get the time to catch up on the things that I miss but for now, I’m giving you a list of my at the moments. 😊

First and foremost, I can’t believe that this segment–ATM with Bryan–has already reached 10 volumes as of speaking (I mean, as of writing)! *mentally shrieking* It’s a feat for me (as a blogger) to have continued a tradition and have made this an experience. In fact, majority of my readers commend this blog series for some reasons. I remember discovering this entry as The Sunday Currently–a link up made by siddathornton, a bandwagon which a number of bloggers have joined (including yours truly). It feels surreal to witness this segment grow and continually develop volume after volume; becoming a favorite among my loyal readers.

The first week of the new term has just ended and (I must say that) I’ll be busier in the coming weeks–knowing that I have a demanding set of professors. First week pa lang, stress na. Apparently, my body clock and system has yet to adjust to the (energy draining) nature of school. Plus, I have exerted my best effort last semester only to witness a single subject ruin my good-looking portal grade page. So now, it seems like I have lost the fire and desire to perform well academically–all because of that subject. Anyway, now is not the time to rant so for now, I’m giving you a list of my at the moments. 😊

ATM with Bryan | 09

Hello everyone! Christmas is indeed near. 🎄 *sends out positive vibes to y’all* How’s December so far (not to mention that we’re a few days shy from 2017)? As for me, everything is just well–a tough and groundbreaking semester just ended and the Christmas vacation slash Term break has just begun (and I’m going to YOLO this). The week prior to the finals week went difficult and I’m passing requirements every day; got a breather on Thursday and finished school works on Friday. For the record, I managed to function for 3 straight days on 6 hours of sleep, which is insane.

Contrary to that, the finals week went tranquil–with only 2 minor subjects to stress about since I have finished the remaining subjects early on. Now, I’m patiently waiting for my grades to be uploaded on the Portal. So far, I’m making the term break worth my while by catching up on my favorite TV series, seeing old films and finishing the novels that I’ve started reading during the previous semester. I’m feeling extra productive today to I decided to write an ATM with Bryan volume (spend some minutes writing something that you could read). For now, I’m giving you a list of my at the moments. Happy holidays! 😊

CURRENTLY

Reading

Veronica Roth’s Insurgent–the second book in the Divergent trilogy. I just finished reading Divergent last night so today, (technically speaking) I started reading Insurgent. I also plan on reading other series such as The Hunger Games and The Maze Runner (which have film adaptations already but apparently, I swore to myself not to read another unless I finish Divergent so…) #doubletime

Writing

the 9th volume of ATM with Bryan but aside from this, nothing (you read it right, nothing). I paused for a while from writing poetry to read more and gather inspirations (I assume you know that I have an inspiration but I’m pertaining to intangible one like concepts or thoughts). It’s crazy how I manage to switch roles from being a blogger, to a poet and to a writer–they are, as far as I’m concerned, different things.

Listening

to Bruno Mars’s 24K Magic album–this album is honestly and surprisingly a banger (well, we’re talking about Bruno Mars here). 🎶 Note: the album is filled with explicit lyrics but nonetheless, it’s a great jam. I also like The Weeknd’s Starboy album. In fact, I play both records back to back, one after the other, alternately. I do that in regret of downloading albums and not listening to them right away (and another album comes out so I end up not listening to some records at all).

Thinking

about the next blog entry that I should publish. I scrupulously have a number of blog entries waiting for queue–some of them are in order since I follow a pattern on my blog (3 Instagram photos; 2 blog entries) while others are waiting for complementary visuals. That is why I refrain from blogging lately (because I don’t think I can post all of them considering the sequence that I use). #abangan

Smelling

the energizing scent of Milo (I have a cup beside my laptop at the moment). The odor got me singing Help beat energy, energy gap / Beat energy gap, drink Milo every day. The song sounds catchy to me, though. Anyway, I just have to say that I immeasurably love the smell of Milo–I can have it anytime of the day (and by saying, I mean, I can have it at 4:00 AM or at 11:11 PM, irrational).

Wishing

for Aguinaldos or Papaskos to come at their free will. Honestly, I haven’t saved a single bucks during the semester so I’m struggling in terms of financial status right now. Kidding aside, I think I’m too old (note: I just turned 18 last month) for Christmas Aguinaldos. Truth is, I start to worry if I’ll be receiving anything this season because I sincerely have no source of income as of speaking. #sendhelp

Hoping

not to miss the upcoming ganaps of my squad. *crosses fingers* This holiday period, we all agree with the fact that most ganaps and walwal times take place this season and as much as I want to stay at home, I can’t afford to miss these happenings. I just missed a walwal night recently–Danielle and Haree’s bday blast–due to a scheduled dentist appointment and Christmas shopping (and I can’t let that happen again). #walangmakakapigil

Wearing

a black Kin shirt and a white short from Boracay–my type of comfy pambahay pair. Fun fact: (brace yourselves because this is not fun at all) I haven’t been to Boracay. Unhappily, the only beaches I have visited are those in Batangas. During the last holiday break (October 31–November 2), some of my friends took the time to travel and go to beaches or even out-of-the-country while I spent the whole damn time at home. 👏 #mahusay

Loving

the fact that I have a lot of time to do the things that make me genuinely jovial: reading, poetry, TV-babad habits, coffee and so on, and so forth (most of them are, I suppose, gravitated towards introversion). I also love the weather–just the right mix of heat and breeze. There is something else I want to put in this ‘Loving’ section–her and everything about her (but I guess I’ll put it in a separate entry). #workingonit #thisisTHElife

Wanting

a legit fastfood fix, something burger-ish or gravy-ish. Since I got out of the city, there’s one thing that I undeniably miss–food. I bet you all agree with me when I say that I’m (sort of) used to the food at home. I’ve had mad cravings for Bon Chon and Yellow Cab recently and I’ve been itching to eat out for dinner somewhere in Tagaytay (plus, the vibes in that city–perfect for night outs).

Needing

just her (not sure if it’s even a joke or something but jokes are half meant, right?). Here’s the thing, I, in good conscience, want to tell you guys about it–maybe share a story or two but just like what I said, less talking, less chances of jinxing so maybe we all could wait. #satamangpanahon 💏 Needing, probably a more reliable internet connection to update my blog and post some photos on Instagram (I’ll be starting an new feed so watch out).

Feeling

disappointingly lazy and downright unproductive. 😓 It’s just that I don’t feel like I’ve done something (recently since the term break began) that I can absolutely call industrious. After a hard-hitting semester, I thought of hibernating–and this is the ungodly aftermath of burning midnight candles. Perhaps, I need a few more days at home to feel the urge to move and be productive. *sighs*

So how’s the Holiday season so far? From my fam to yours, this is Bryan wishing you Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! 🎉

ATM with Bryan | 08

Hello November! 👋 Time flies too fast indeed. It seems as though yesterday, we were just anticipating 2016. Now we’re down to the last 2 months of the year (and fam, we gon be lit). Aside from the fact that it is my birth month (and I’m ready for the month-long birthday greetings), this season is definitely the busiest yet most wonderful time of the year. No one can argue with that. I could already feel the Christmas season vibes–it’s everywhere. 🎅 In sharp contrast, I don’t feel that my birthday is approaching or maybe I’m too preoccupied to breathe in the bday vibes.

On the other end, it is also the kasagsagan of midterm week and I am chasing deadlines and examination schedules. #stresspamore 😵 It’s probably one hell of a factor to consider why I’m not getting the legal age feels. The stressful part actually started a week ago and I shall say that the exam week proper (sort of) extended the nerve-wracking rush. A long weekend due to holidays is consequently coupled up with a long list of school works to finish. Putting all the rants aside, let’s breathe in all the positivity that we can. To start the month off, I’m giving you a list of my at the moments. Happy scrolling! 😊

CURRENTLY

Reading

Veronica Roth’s Divergent trilogy. 📖 I’ve actually seen the first 3 movies (Divergent, Insurgent and Allegiant) and I must say that I’m deeply gravitated towards the story of Tris Prior–and that notion inspired me to read the trilogy. The 4th and last installment of the film series, Ascendant, will be released next year (the producers decided to split the last offering into 2 halves similar to Twilight and Hunger Games).

Writing

the 8th volume of ATM with Bryan. 💻 Of all my blog series, this is the one that I am proudest of–it contains the real and authentic Bryan and I’m (trying to be) more honest each time I compose an entry under this label. I’ve been writing a lot of poems lately in between class discussions and as much as I want to share all of them with you, I’m paving the way for other blog worthy ganapslately. *winks*

Listening

to Calvin HarrisThis is What You Came For. Not to bring the Calvin-Taylor issue on the surface but this song is a pretty good one. 🎧 Now here’s to all the majestic collabs that they could’ve done if they didn’t split up. *note sarcasm* 😂 Recently, I have downloaded Lady Gaga’s Joannealbum and no words could fairly describe my adoration for the album. Each song on the record is precious and personal. 🙌

Thinking

about how to celebrate my birthday (in ways more than one). 🎂 The more resounding thought is ‘how to celebrate your bday when it’s the middle of the midterm week?’ That has got to be cruel. But seriously, I’m planning to celebrate my day in a number of ways with different set of people each. If my sched allows and moolah comes into play then probably I’m good to go. 🎉 #legalage

Smelling

*sniffs* 👃 the unbearable and freezing smell of air conditioning units. I used to hate air cons–well, I hate them until now. *coughs* I can’t seem to stand the odor of the cold air blown by air cons and the low temperature that lingers even after you turn them off. Apparently, we have an air-conditioned kind of low temperature in Mendez but it surely is natural and fresh. ❄️ #OnlyInMendez

Wishing

for the final term to be smooth and easy-going. Wishful thinking it is, I know. Babala: Wag umasa! ⚠️ Christmas season is indeed getting closer (parang The Chainsmokers lang ‘diba?) and it wouldn’t sound awful to wish for my professors to be EXTRA generous this time, right? Final terms are usually the hardest and most ngarag in terms of requirements and demands–not this time, hopefully. *crosses fingers*

Hoping

for everyone to radiate positivity. *clears throat* At this point, all I seek is peace of mind and I wouldn’t take a good grip on it unless I eliminate toxic people (I have zero tolerance for bullshit and it ain’t worth my time). Good riddance, though. *sigh* I am growing up and it’s about time to make crucial life choices–one of which is to outgrow all the negativities that I accumulated. 😇 #SignsOfAgeing #LoloVibes

Wearing

a foundation day anniversary shirt from high school and my high school PE jogging pants (both of them are green). This is my usual sleepwear–a shirt and PJs. I usually arrive at home in time for dinner and changing to my sleepwear is the first thing I do the moment I reach my room. Today is a Friday so I wore a Lasallian shirt matched with jeans and a hoodie at school earlier. #keepingitsimple ✅

Loving

my Instagram feed. 📷 I just finished my usual ‘12 photos per feed’ using a filter under the Legacy collection. I’m extremely satisfied with my previous feed (and I wouldn’t want to have it any other way). Up next: Street Etiquette. 😍 By using one of my new favorite filters under this pack, I’m looking forward to a dull and laid back feed. I’ve been madly in love with Instagram lately and for no apparent reason, I could spend hours scrolling through the app alone. Check out my Instagram feed: bryanllamado

Wanting

perhaps a spontaneous beach trip / getaway. 🌊 I desperately need one (if you have no freaking idea)! Lately, I feel like my soul is longing for the sands, being by shore and witnessing waves. Blame it on the fact that I spent the long weekend at home while my friends traveled during the entire layoff from everything. What’s good? Nothing. I just drowned in envy and I swear I’m fine. #okaylangtalagaako

Needing

some sort of a ‘reward for all the hard work and effort that I exert in everything I do. 🎁 It’s as though I needed a prize or a token–be it material or not–that’ll make me fall in love with ‘work’ more. School has been stressful recently so I yearn for time away from academic demands and requirements (and I’m absolutely sure that you get the same feeling sometimes). Reminder: It’s okay to feel stressed. You are human, after all.

Feeling

in love? ❤️ Take that, but twice as blessed, equally loved and reasonably positive. *counts the adjectives and adverbs used in the previous phrase* There is no lone adjective (in my vocabulary) that I can use to describe the way I feel so I decided to write down a phrase. #EnglishMajorsBeLike 💁 Plus, the midterm week is forbidding me to exude even the thinnest strand of bliss. Ugh! Too blessed to be stressed. #stayingalive 📚

Wishing everyone to have a splendid weekend ahead! By the way, thank you all for sending your birthday greetings. Greatly appreciated. 😀

ATM with Bryan | 07

There have been a lot of on goings lately–visited random cafes around the city, finished tons of term requirements, breezed through a hell-like busy yet productive prelim week and hit the barwith my high school friends. I would like to share them all to you through blog entries but this week seems to be a busy one (more like an extension of the prelim week). I wouldn’t mind promising that I will draft entries each for the prelim week and the night out with my colleagues for they are really ‘blog-worthy’ in terms of highlights. Sit back lang kayo, ako na bahala sa kwento. 😁

The last time I wrote a volume of ‘ATM with Bryan’ was more than a month ago. A lot has changed since, thinking it has only been a month. I feel blessed with so much more than I deserve and it humbles me knowing that I’m not in the best position to be worthy of the blessings. I can’t catch the right words to describe the way I feel but I hope you figure it out. (As much as I want to revive the rest of my blog series,) all I can offer this time is a list of my ‘at the moment’s’. Happy scrolling! 😊

CURRENTLY

Reading

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs. Yes, I’m still not done with this book. For some odd reasons, I can’t seem to continue flipping through the pages. Maybe it’s the plot, or the uncertainty of the next chapters, or simply because my mind is not yet ready for a fantasy novel. Either way, I’m finishing this book before the movie comes out (hopefully, *crosses fingers*).

Writing

Another volume of ATM with Bryan and working on a whole bunch of upcoming entries. I can’t wait to share the recent ganaps here on my blog but I’m looking for a legit timing and setting to blog (write), probably a coffee shop check in on a homework-less night. *notes it down on my planner* 📅 Plus, I’m working on a few visuals to accompany the entries (fancy photos and editing applications, ya know).

Listening

To Taylor Swift’s The 1898 World Tour live album. There is a film of this album which is exclusively available to Apple Music subscribers (I wish I was one, though). Flaunting my inner Swiftie vibe with this playlist. Anyway, I have downloaded a couple of R&B and Rock albums which I haven’t played yet. And recently, I’m stuck on local tunes in the likes of Eraserheads, Up Dharma Down and South Border.

image

Thinking

About other things to blog about. I must admit, there was a certain point last week when I got extremely sad over a hectic sched with zero time for blogging. #bloggingislife 💻 Let’s just say that I’m pursuing a lot of blog-worthy activities recently yet I have no time to write them down or put them into words. How ironic! One more thing I’m thinking about: Upcoming midterm lessons.

Smelling

The scent of the choco drink I finished after dinner. I still have the empty tumbler filled with chocolate stains beside my laptop. I also had a glass of fresh milk to accompany my meal earlier. #bestofbothworlds 🍶 It smells like Hershey’s but you can also trace a bit of sweetness in its odor. I also had the same drink for lunch (naadik na). #chocooverload 🍫

Wishing

For a productive but not-so-busy week ahead. I desperately need sleep as I spent the entire last week burning midnight candles. A week that’s not loaded with school works, is it too much to ask for? 😵 When you’re fresh off a hell week, you really feel this sick need to catch up on sleep and the rest of the things you missed. Free time is a luxury to be considered at this point of the semester.

Hoping

Be able to focus on things that are really really worthwhile. Last week sucked the best and worst out of me that I wasn’t able to make time for the things that count. #priorities 📚 Quite frankly, the things that bring genuine joy to me tend to settle below the list and it’s rather dismaying. But hey, school is also a priority but I hope it’s a little less depressing to me (and the rest of my blockmates of course).

Wearing

A pair of biking shorts, a pair of pajamas with no top, already in my sleepwear. I’m actually planning to sleep shirtless unless we use the aircon. Earlier, I’m on my slacks (which was repaired during the weekend) and PE shirt (no undershirt, the PE shirt itself fits around my body so well) and changed to rush guard and cycling shorts during Swimming class. 🏊

Loving

The fact that I survived the prelim week which came off as a long, hard and busy one. Each day, I’m chasing deadlines for term requirements and paper works. Each night, I’m trying to stretch that hands of the clock to scan through my notes and review. I survived the week and haven’t missed a single school work or major exam. #thankyouLord 🙏 Okay lang na walang tulog, basta nakapag-aral.

Wanting

Anything and everything that’s associated with food or eating. I’m craving for fast food and sweets such as ice cream lately. Life Hack: If you’re craving for something sweet, drink sweet beverages like soda, milkshakes or juices. It works! (In my case, it really does but too much sweets, nah) I’ve been craving for Bon Chon as well (since last week) but I’m too lazy to lift a finger. Ugh! (You might as well check my Facebook wall; been sharing mouth-watering foods all week long).

Needing

Probably an escapade or a getaway somewhere north bound. I really need to immerse (yes, I used that term) myself to a different environment. That brings out my creativity and the overwhelming feeling hits me so hard that my creative juices for poetry jumpstart. I need new inspirations for my blog and for photography as well. I guess I need something, an element, that’ll make me fall in love with art more. #onthelookout 🔭

Feeling

As I have mentioned earlier, blessed. There is that moment when you’ll come to the realization that not everything is perfect but when you look around you, goodness prevails. But along with the blessings we receive come hard word and effort. You can’t just sit around pretty all day long and wait for a blessing to come your way. You gotta work for it! And I suppose the reason why I’m feeling blessed is because hard work is paying off. #forevergrateful ❤️

Everybody have a productive and pleasant week ahead! Thank you for dropping by! ☺️

PS. I’m currently hibernating on Instagram to focus on my blog. Meanwhile, check out instagram.com/bryanllamado/

ATM with Bryan | 06

I’ve been feeling blankly lately; I don’t mean to say that I’m empty but yes, I do. These days I feel nothing, as if I’ve forgotten the definition of ‘emotion.’ I believe it’s normal to feel a variety of emotions every once in a while. Maybe I am trapped in a transitional phase in my life wherein I don’t know what to expect and what has yet to come. Therefore, the minor melancholy I am feeling right now is brought about by uncertainty. Probably, I’m losing track for a while and I feel like swinging–going with the flow but refusing to lose myself in the process. Yes, I have a tight grip on who I am.

I’ve said no to a lot of attempts to write another volume of ATM with Bryan. I have a lot of time but I’m waiting for a good time to write one. Plus, I can’t just simply post volumes after volumes; aside from the fact that it’ll be redundant, the blog will lose its essence. I have a lot of plans to accomplish this month and I can’t wait to share them with you but first, here’s a list of my at the moments. Happy scrolling!

CURRENTLY

Reading

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. I have read this novel before but I wasn’t able to finish it for some reasons. I believe I’m halfway through it when I decided to quit reading (it almost 2 years ago). I missed reading novels like this one–classic ones, with Western setting and relies mainly on social standards and statuses. I have plans of buying poetry books (but there is a right time for it). I can’t wait!

Writing

Obviously, the 6th volume of ATM with Bryan. Fun fact: I write ATM with Bryan volumes in just one sitting. I’m keeping it intimate and personal–I don’t plan on what to write, I just type in what comes out of my head and that’s it, a blog in an instant (although I must reveal that it takes me a while to be on groove for writing). I’m looking forward to writing a novel this year! I’ll make it happen.

Listening

To Fifth Harmony’s 7/27 album–just the right tunes for chill nights and sweater weather (although I have no sweater with me; I wish I have one though). Me time + coffee + blog + good music on loop. It couldn’t get any better. I’ve downloaded 6 recently-released albums and I haven’t played all of them yet. I guess I’ll be killing time for them. I can never say no to good music.

Thinking

About what to eat? I’m at one of my favorite coffee shops right now. I brought my laptop with me so I can write while I’m taking sips off my drink. But on a serious note, there is a completely deep thought that dampens my head as of now but the sad thing is, I can’t fully take hold of it. It’s as if I need to (sort of) spend some more time before I can fully realize what’s in my head. One thing’s for sure: I will figure it out.

Smelling

The brewed smell of coffee and the relaxing atmosphere that surrounds me. It’s been a while since I last went out by my lonesome and I must admit that each day or night out alone is considered pricey for me. I love the smell of such places–pleasant yet enticing; not too fragrant yet relieving. All around me are frappuccinos and overhead light bulbs.

Wishing

for some things to be in perspective (for things to get better slowly, piece by piece). I’m willing to wait until the fog clears out and my path has been revealed. For some reasons (that I can’t disclose), I kept wishing for things to get better despite the fact that no matter how blatant I demand for them to be, they won’t until the right time has come for them to be. #waitingwaitingwaiting

Hoping

That whatever I am doing right now would be worthwhile. Right now, I’m prioritizing things that are worthy of being so. *crosses fingers that I’m making the right choices* I thought of fulfillment over ‘people’s reaction’ in everything I do–there ain’t no need to please people after all and what I’m after is the joy I get in what I do. I hope to live the life I deserve.

Wearing

a white v-neck shirt, a pair of jeans and a pair of black sneakers – just the simplest of all combis for a night out alone (although I have to admit that this look is much of a downfall when you’re really desperate to go out). Apparently, I haven’t brought all my favorite clothes to the dorm so I can pick the right combi each time I go out. Well, I really am fond of night outs and spontaneous ganaps and not even lack of clothes could stop me from the hell of it, my bad.

Loving

Myself now more than ever (or maybe I’m just making it look like) but I’m dead serious. Now is the time to do so. I mean, if no one loves me that much (aside from the Lord of course) then I better do, right? It isn’t hell to spend time on yourself–productive things for self-betterment, gravitated towards introvertion. For a while, I lost faith in myself and began thinking that I’m a failure (not enough in other people’s calibration and it sucked the best and worst out of me). Feeling that ‘I’m-not-that-good-enough’ is the worst goddamn thing in the world. Ever.

Wanting

More moolah to spend on cravings. and books. and clothes. Ugh! I just suck real bad at budgeting. You should know how ‘bad’ it feels when you ain’t got wise money-spending-saving decisions. Man, money matters should be taken seriously though. But soon, I will be starting a good habit that (I hope) will help me with regards to this matter. *crosses fingers again*

Needing

Probably balance in all things. You know what I mean; everyone needs a sense of balance (literally, physically, figuratively, etc). I had a conversation earlier with an acquaintance and ‘balance’ surfaced out of the exchange of view. Due to the fact that I want a change in lifestyle, I kept losing balance in my priorities. Yes, my bad. Again and again.

Feeling

All sorts of emotions but in small and bearable intensities (I’d like to say quantities but it’s awfully inappropriate). I believe it’s normal (just like what I said earlier) but it’s extra harder to feel this way this time since the last time I felt such way was long ago. Now, I seem to have unlearned how to deal with it but I’m trying to remain optimistic, for I believe that optimism is a way out this bullshit. #positivityisthekey

How about you? I hope y’all are starting the week/A.Y. on a good note.

PS. Bear with me for being too talkative. I didn’t expect this entry to be this long though. If you bother reading, I have to thank you big time. *winks*

ATM with Bryan | 05

Hello readers! Thank you so much for dropping by and paying my blog a visit. 🙂 There is nothing significant about me at the moment. I’m stuck at home (nothing is spectacular about it I swear). This is much to the adjustment made with regards to the academic calendar. Well, I attended Rheza’s debut party last week (it was Tuesday, July 5). Rheza is one of my college friends and being a part of her special day (or night) is a joy on my part. I’m planning to write an entry about that soon but for now, I’ll be writing another volume of ATM with Bryan.

I hope you’re finding this blog series worthy of reading though. I’m a bit frustrated (and confused) about this blog series. I’ve thought of renaming this into something else– apparently, I haven’t come up with a clever title yet. So if you have suggestions, I’m willing to entertain them. 🙂 So let’s get it on! Here’s another list of my currently’s. Enjoy scrolling!

image

CURRENTLY

Reading

John Green’s Paper Towns. I love this novel! I’ve seen the movie adaptation first (my bad since I’m not that fond of books) before reading the novel. I must say that I love the book. I love figuring it all up in my head, with the words starting to clutter and tinker with my imagination. I’ve (successfully) related significant details of the novel to the film (and it kinda makes me feel great).

Writing

ATM with Bryan. I have plans of editing this blog series soon! Haha. For now, I’m also working on other blogs. I have entries ready for publishing but on the other hand, I have pending entries that I can’t finish (and it makes me feel more frustrated). It makes me sad that I can’t finish an entry. :(L But I’m checking on them from time to time and I can’t wait to share them to you once they’re all done.

Listening

To Taylor Swift’s You’re Not Sorry, a song from her 2008 album, Fearless. Damn. I love this album so much! (y) There are a few tracks that have remained close to me (and my heart) from the very first day I heard them. So much feels, I must say. No doubt this album went on to win Album of the Year at the annual Grammy Awards.

Thinking

About the drafted entries I haven’t finished. It really makes me sad (and frustrated) for not finishing them but I’d like to think that now is not the right time for them to be unleashed. So far, I have more than 10 blog entries in queue for posting. I’m also thinking about featuring prose and poetry on my blog soon! YAY! I know it’s a good idea. Watch out for them.

Smelling

The not-so-fresh scent of my blanket. Haha. I’m planning to change my bedsheets by the end of the week but the weather won’t let them dry in case they head on to the laundry. Trivia: I only sleep comfortably when I’m all wrapped in my blanket. That’s true. I love tucking myself in between the sheets whether it’s hot or cold. Blanket weather every day. Haha

Wishing

For more and more productivity! Damn. I just feel like my sleep pattern has gotten a lot worse (and I’m not exaggerating I swear). I wish to do more things and move around the house more. Since school’s going to start in roughly a month, I’m itching to get on a productive mood so that when school starts, I’m ready.

Hoping

For more and more ganaps! Haha. I just want to go to Tagaytay with my friends. I miss hanging out with them. L I hope we can be able to spend some time together because I know (for a fact) the when school starts, we’ll barely see each other. That’s sad and I’m missing them more every day. I hope we can go see a movie or just hang out at one’s place.

Wearing

The One Run singlet I got from this year’s USC event and a blue Boracay-printed shorts, just the right pair for a usual day at home. The jersey-like singlet proved to be a comfy top for the days when I hate sleeves while this pair of shorts have always been a favorite much because of its color. ♥

Loving

How the things are going rn. I get to talk to my girlfriend regularly, check out on my friends, write and blog, and do the things I should do on a daily basis. That deserves a big hooray! But still, I need to be more productive and avoid wasting time. One more thing I love: my braces. I got them on both of my upper and lower set of teeth.

Wanting

A more reliable internet connection. I can recall just how upset I was after registering to a promo which did not ‘work.’ An evidence to how pissed I was that time – I messaged Globe on Facebook just to tell them how madly upset I am for their service. And guess what? They did not respond well and kept giving me practical ‘tips’ that I already did before contacting them. Wow! You guys deserve a round of applause.

Needing

A crazy not-so-little thing called money. Yep, I’m broke and there’s nothing I could do about it. Haha. But I’m completely okay with it. I just miss school because I used to splurge and spoil myself with my sick obsessions like food, clothes, prepaid load, random gala and night outs/dinner. But one of my goals is to save this upcoming school year. How ironic, right? Ugh.

Feeling

Satisfied that I am finishing this blog in one sitting! That deserves a big YAY! I really do stay up to write because I’m finding it uneasy to write during daytime. It’s just satisfying that I’m able to write (and stay up, I love night life for reals). I hope I can finish my other blogs soon! I’m crossing my fingers to that. 🙂

How about you? I hope you’re all having a great week! Enjoy the bed slash cuddle slash rainyweather, everyone! And mind you, we’re halfway through 2016! Thank you, Lord! Till the next entry. – Bry
