Flash Post 046: Sunny Days & Rainy Nights

It’s been really sunny lately. Well, sunny during daytime, but it’d rain really hard during the night. I’ve been doing better these past couple of weeks. September came by really fast and it’s the second week of October already.

I’m happy to announce that I passed most of the first exams I’ve taken so far. The psychology exam I took last last Friday hasn’t been returned and I have yet to take my midterm in my accounting class. Although the scores I got aren’t really that high, I’m very much content with them.

I took two second long exams last week and, through God’s graces and mercy, I really hope I pass both of them. I’ve only successfully crammed weeks worth of knowledge into one night and did exceptionally well in the exam a few times and, honestly, I don’t remember anything about that class anymore and it’s only been a year. Sadly, I don’t think I retained any of the information enough to last a month.

That being said, it is NEVER a good idea to cram that much knowledge into ONE NIGHT. I know it’s difficult and, often times, we’d rather binge watch or hang out with friends during our “chill weeks”, but it’s ALWAYS better to study gradually everyday. I haven’t actually done it yet, but I’d imagine it’d make our “hell weeks” less hectic.

I have a quiz tomorrow, a long exam the day after tomorrow, and a midterm exam next Sunday. I haven’t actually studied for any of them yet, but there’s still time and as long as I don’t procrastinate this week, including today, I’ll be fine.

I really really hope that I get my life together, at least enough to pass all my classes this semester. I’m a work-in-progress and, as long as I keep trying, doing my best, and trusting God, I know I can do it.

On that note, I’d like to share one of my favorite worship songs. Honestly, there were times during this semester when I felt helpless and really lost, but each day is a testament of God’s love for me. I’m very thankful for everything and everyone He has blessed me with.

(I don’t really know why I felt like writing and maybe this wasn’t really value-adding to you, as readers, but I just needed to write and remind myself not to cram everything in one night.

And I hope I can share God’s love and word with others with enthusiasm and passion. Also, let’s all hope I can write a post a bit more decent than this one haha.)

 

LIVE. LAUGH. LOVE

Random Shoutout 11

I don’t know why, but I feel really tired and kinda sad right now. I want to watch just ONE episode of Meteor Garden before I dive into all the e-books, lecture slides, and notes I need to review, but the universe says “NO”.

So I had decided to settle for Youtube, then I found this!

And it just makes me want to watch more.

I have a long exam in my Psychology class, a long quiz in my stochastic processes class, and a problem set for my Statics class this Friday, then a long exam in my Statics class (will be my 2nd time to take the 2nd exam) next Monday and a long exam in my stochastic processes class next Tuesday.

I cannot fuck up especially during this time, but why can’t I just watch one episode???

And I haven’t seen him in weeks. I kinda miss him already which is weird considering the circumstances. I want to meet up, but that isn’t possible now either because of several reasons.

ARGH.

LIVE. LAUGH. LOVE

Random Shoutout 010

I have 10 minutes before my next class starts and I have the urge to share the following songs below because I have been playing and re-playing them again and again since last night and this morning. They’re really great songs and, unlike my shoutouts recently, they have a different kind of tune and they lean more on romance and (for the first two) a heartbroken vibe.

Regina Spektor – “Samson”

 

Ben&Ben – “Kathang Isip”

 

Ben&Ben – “Ride Home”

 

Six minutes to go! Till’ next time~!!

 

LIVE. LAUGH. LOVE

Flash Post 045: Keep Holding On

It’s two minutes before three o’ clock in the morning and I’m (sort of) in tears. Recently, I’ve been re-watching a few episodes of The Glee Project (Season One) and I am absolutely in love with this song!

In the show, my favorite version has always been Cameron’s. I had a crush on him and Damian when I first watched it (I don’t know if it was simultaneous or not) and, while I still kinda do, I think I got to appreciate their friendship more and Cameron’s sticking to his principles and beliefs and walking away with his head held high when he felt that this wasn’t what he wanted in life anymore.

(Yes, I edited the video. No I don’t own it. Yes, I’m not over it. Yes, I’m in love with his voice, too.)

Honestly, I don’t know what point I want to make by writing this post. It has been a long but enjoyable day and I was feeling strong emotions up to this point.

Now I just kinda want to sleep.

Good night/morning, world~! See you again later!

 

LIVE. LAUGH. LOVE. SLEEP.

Flash Post 044:

It’s only been 9 days since my last post, but I feel like I haven’t visited this blog in a long time. I’m fairly happy and content with life right now, which I haven’t been for quite some time, so it’s the perfect time to write a flash post!

I know I promised to write a “My Favorite Things” post a while back and I do have the board uploaded here and ready to post, but those were my favorite things during the summer term (which ended about two months ago!) and I haven’t actually found the right time to write it, given the “not so good” days and the busy days I’ve had recently.

I just finished my THIRD first long exam in Statics last Monday and, even though I KNOW I got one problem wrong (Say it with me: “Smooth surfaces still have normal forces acting on the object.”), I’m pretty happy that I finished the exam and I survived more than I thought I would. I was also able to understand the lesson and actually answer one of the problems during the quiz yesterday (scam second problem argh), so I REALLY hope this continues because I really NEED to pass this class already! A galaxy is on the line here (quite literally if you know me personally) and, honestly, I need to already move on to more advanced engineering subjects after this THIRD take.

I’m trying to do this “intermittent fasting” thing because they say it’s effective and healthy. I’m technically on my third day, but I haven’t been doing it faithfully, so this week probably isn’t counted yet. I REALLY need to lose a lot of weight because apparently being obese REALLY isn’t healthy and I can’t donate blood given my current state. I love food, but I also love myself more chz.

Considering I’m a student majoring in a course that stands for efficiency and effectiveness, I’ve been sort of trying it out today. How can I manage other people when I can’t even get myself together, right?? I got to sleep at one o’ clock in the morning, wake up at 7:10, take a bath within the duration of 18 minutes, and get to class 10 minutes early. CAN I PLEASE BE LIKE THIS EVERY DAY???

ALSO, here’s a video I’d like to share in this little blog of mine. I’ve bumped into it a couple of times, including the time when I was trying to get my life together, and I think it makes a lot of sense. So for people out there who, like me, are having difficulty managing time and prioritizing, here’s a video to hopefully help you out!

(I relate to the coffee part in an almost spiritual level.)

My actual phone’s still broken, so I’m using my parent’s phone and, sadly, it can’t accommodate my music needs. But, right now, the songs I listen to the most have to be:

  • High Hopes by Panic! At The Disco

  • Greater by Chris Tomlin

  • In Jesus’ Name by Darlene Zschech

All beautiful songs and I 100% recommend you listen to them!

I have to go, but will be posting soon for sure! ❤

 

LIVE. LAUGH. LOVE

 

 

 

 

 

Random Shoutout 009: High Hopes by Panic! At the Disco

Okay, I’m actually on a study break right now, so I can’t write much. But I thought this song is something that NEEDS to be posted here, both for those who are already in love with this song and for those who haven’t heard it yet (YES THERE IS NO IN BETWEEN IT’S EITHER YOU’RE IN LOVE WITH IT OR YOU HAVEN’T HEARD IT!!).

This is the second Panic! At the Disco music video I’ve posted here and their music is REALLY AMAZING! Also, shout out to my friend who (almost) ALWAYS plays their songs on speaker! Thank you~~!! ❤

 

LIVE. LAUGH. LOVE.  MOMENT GENERATING FUNCTIONS.

Flash Post 043: Kinda Lost

As of writing, I’m four weeks into the first semester of my fourth year in college. Quite a lot of things have happened, most of which are bad ones, but I’m thankful to still be alive and kicking. Honestly, these past few days have been really bad days, but I guess that’s life.

I’m in the library right now and happy enough to be able to write another flash post after 23 days of not writing in this blog AT ALL. I can also write when I’m kind of sad or angry, but then that would be more of a rant post and I think we could all agree that there’s enough rant posts here as is.

I know I’ve mentioned this in at least two of my previous posts, but I really miss the girl I was before (aka my high school self) because, as flawed as she was, she got high enough grades, graduated with honors (not the highest ones, nor the second highest, but honors nonetheless), and got into her dream university.

While I am barely hanging by a thread.. in all aspects of my life… right now.. literally.

I don’t really know, to be honest. I’m getting by and meeting up with my good friend who shares Christian booklets with me helped somehow, but I still feel like a really unorganized person who’s just becoming more of a failure every day. Fighting with someone whom I love dearly and being self-conscious about my appearance are few of the things that make my self-loathing worse.

BUT of course this would just be another shitty rant post without this last (?) paragraph, right? Sure, I’m not the girl I was before, but I still believe in myself enough to know that whatever I’m going through are just challenges and I’ll overcome them, just like all the other challenges I previously faced. Maybe I’m having a hard time right now, but I can and I will get my shit together and improve on the aspects of life I need to work on. I might’ve thought of giving up more than I should’ve, but I’m no quitter and I’ll get through the bad days and cherish the good days.

I am a work-in-progress and things aren’t looking that good right now, but I know God would never leave me nor forsake me and that he has a wonderful future in store for me. I have to remind myself that that, in itself, is enough to keep me going.

P.S. I already made the next “My Favorite Things” board, but I’m still unable to write about it, so maybe next time :). Have a beautiful day every day! <3.
