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

 

 

 

 

 

(Not So Short) Flash Post 016: Never

Reblogging my own post because it’s about to be as relevant as it can get.

The Girl With The Pen

I just noticed that, before this post, the last flash post (Flash Post 015: Summer Rant) was written a bit more than 2 months ago! Well, I wasn’t able to post anything last July so…

Anyways, I’ve learned an important thing about life recently due to a rather terrible event. I’ve learned that we shouldn’t take time for granted because the time that has already passed is time lost- you can never get it back. Our time here on Earth is very short and uncertain, so be careful how you choose to spend it. It’s an awful feeling to want to go back in time to change things when you can’t.

I’m really no good with time management and prioritizing. I’m easily distracted, forgetful, stubborn, and a bit lazy, to be honest, so basically I’m the worst at time management haha. But I’m working on it (sort of)…

Random Shoutout 006: “First Burn” + “When He Sees Me” from Waitress

 

I think it’s been well over a year since I first began to love Hamilton: An American Musical and I still constantly listen to the soundtrack and yet another gem of a video was released a couple of days ago. I only got into it yesterday, but I’ve been listening to it non-stop ever since (yes, pun intended)!

I’ve always favored Angelica from the start and until now, but I’ve got to admit that I admire Eliza’s courage to walk away from someone she loves because he cheated on her with some woman (IN THEIR OWN HOUSE!) causing her heart to be torn into pieces. Eliza’s this kind and trusting person (according to Angelica) and she’s been nothing but a great and faithful wife to Alexander, so this song really presents a side of her that, I think, nobody should mess with. She might be helpless, but she ain’t putting up with your shit any longer, Alexander!

FIVE DIFFERENT ELIZA’S (Arianna Afsar, Julia Harriman, Lexi Lawson, Rachelle Ann Go, and Shoba Narayan)  AND THEY ARE SLAYING IT!!

Similar songs that come to mind are “Sorry Not Sorry” by Demi Lovato, “Part of Me” by Katy Perry, and “Problem” by Ariana Grande.

 

On the other hand….

 

This has been a favorite (and a super relate-able) song of mine for a while now, so I don’t really know why I’m only posting about this now. Or maybe I have and I just forgot about it..?

Well, in any case, I still love this song and I’m still very much like the character singing this song. But there’s no use in thinking about it right now, so might as well not.


I have an exam at 6 pm later and, though I’ve studied for it already, I still need to study more and I just really needed to sneak a post because I might not be able to post these next couple of weeks (final hell weeks for this semester!).

Flash Post 031: White

Today, the sky is completely white (the proper term would be “cloudy af”, I think) and it’s so cold everywhere and I realized that I really dislike this kind of weather.

My classes for Wednesdays and Fridays end at 12 noon and 10 am, respectively, and I should really plan out what I do after class because now I’m very hyper, because of the coffee I drank earlier, and super unproductive.

I had planned to study, but it seems that I’ll be doing that a bit later. Everyone’s so busy with a lot of things and I know I should be busy, too, but here I am writing a blog post for my personal blog.

I’m only starting to learn more about my course from my majors, so it’s not that bad if I don’t know what to do for the rest of my life yet. I know I want to pursue a master’s degree after graduating and I want to make a positive impact on the world, but that’s pretty much it for now.

And I don’t know how I’m going to manage that because I don’t have anything legit to put on my resume, my time management and work ethics need A LOT of improvement, and I don’t have any other skills aside from writing which I’m not even that good at in the first place.

The weather is so depressing and I don’t know how the rest of my day will go but life is still very much beautiful and I’m glad to be alive.

Flash Post 020: Is this blog even mine?

Because I keep writing about someone else.. 😦



I don’t know what I’m gonna do ’bout me liking you,

See, I think about you ALL THE TIME –  it’s distracting.

Should I stop this – just be friends? Is that what I should do?

Or should I keep this up – see what the future will bring?



I’d love to continue this poem, but I’ve only allotted 15 minutes for writing this and my time’s almost up. I think about the guy too much already, so I can’t let thoughts of him take up more of my time.

I should probably just stop this cos’, rather than him being just a happy crush, it’s become a sort of infatuation wherein I over think too much and it’s getting really.. alarming.

I think I’m allowed to post this since it’s highly unlikely that he’d read this and, even if he does, I doubt that he’d care.

Since, in his perspective, this poem isn’t for him and he’s not the person that I like.

Am I making sense? Well, sometimes it’s alright not to.

Well, he’s that sort of person – ever so slightly oblivious – but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t care.

I guess, he just doesn’t know.

Or does he?

Probably not, but who knows?

P.S.

Dad, if you’re reading this, please don’t talk to me about it. If you do, I will change my URL or stop this blog and move to some other blog website. I swear.

Flash Post 019: MCM

I’ve made a lot of mistakes in life and I’m gonna make loads more mistakes, but supporting a fellow Filipino on his journey of pursuing his passion in figure skating is not one of them. Sure, it’s highly unlikely that I’d ever buy stuff and ship them internationally for someone I don’t personally know, but I have little to no regrets in doing so for him.

I have to make this shorter than all my other flash posts (cos’ of my statics exam later DX), but this post is dedicated to no other than Michael Christian Martinez. He became famous for being the FIRST skater in the Winter Olympics to come from Southeast Asia and the ONLY Filipino athlete to compete in said competition back in 2014. It’s been a lot of years since then and yet he’s still chasing after his dreams in figure skating –  constantly pushing himself to exceed his limits and achieve his goals.

Sadly, he wasn’t able to qualify for next year’s Winter Olympics. Only 6 slots were left after the Worlds 2017, which skaters fought for in the recent Nebelhorn Trophy 2017. He got 8th place out of 26 competitors which isn’t bad, but it didn’t earn him a slot in the Winter Olympics either.

A lot of people are hating on him for focusing more on his appearance than his actual skating and for spending too much time vlogging, and admittedly, I sometimes do think that he needs to focus more on skating than anything else. But we don’t see everything that goes on in his life. I’m sure he works hard both on and off the ice, but he also deserves to live his life like everyone else. Sure, he’s a skater and a really good one, at that, but he’s also a 20-year old human being trying to live his life the way he wants to do so.

Now, I’ve watched his performances and, personally, I think they’re two of the best he’s done in a while. Forgive me for not being that acquainted with specific figure skating terms and for my lack of skills to actually describe performances properly. All I can say that I saw him give his all in both of the programs and it warms my heart to see him that happy on ice – doing what he loves doing – especially after his short program. And his Biellmann spin was magnificent, as always.

So yes, he didn’t get in, but as they say “When one door closes, two doors open.” He didn’t get this one, but God has a lot in store for him, like he has for you and me, so I hope Michael would just keep trusting God and working hard towards his passion.

Michael, if ever you’re reading this (which I highly doubt because you’re too busy doing your thing haha), I’m proud of you and I’m sure a lot of people, especially Filipinos, are proud of you, too. Don’t let the hate get you down cos’ you’re better than that. Just keep chasing your dreams because you’re inspiring a lot of people, myself included. I’m glad to see you enjoy giving it your all out there and I’m sure there’s a lot more to come for you. Good luck in all your endeavors and we’re just gonna be here to support you all the way. May God bless you always~! ❤

 

LIVE. LAUGH. LOVE

(Well, I gotta go back to studying cos’ I have an exam later. There are times when it’s harder for me to study for a class because I failed the first exam TERRIBLY.. This is one of those times.. But I’ll live, I guess.. Till’ next time~)
