"Safe space" doesn't exist anymore!

Not even Twitter! It's so hard that I can't rant or rave about anything on Twitter anymore. I mean, I can't even post how proud I am of my weight loss without sounding like I am trying to fish compliments from those who can read my tweet.

Anyway, I really am proud of how I look now. I've been working really hard and I've sacrificed a lot of free chips, free cakes, and free steaks for me to reach my goal and I'm finally here! I tried on a few clothes I've been holding on to since I got pregnant in 2010 and they look better on me now than they did before! Now I just have to firm up (eh?) the pregnancy flabs and I'm good to go.

I'd post photos if I weren't too self-conscious of how Haggardo Versoza my face looks like. Also, my room is too messy to show the world.

I need new clothes! Universe, if you're reading this, I terribly need to get that opportunity...of course, not only because I need new clothes but also because... I just need it and you probably know what it's about 'cause I keep on talking to you and God about it.

OS X Yosemite

So I updated my Mac OS to OS X Yosemite:


Please don't judge my choice of software/applications.

Now I truly want to dispose my Samsung tab, get an iPad (Mini), and finally get myself an iPhone (6 plus please Lord!) again.

Consumerism will be my downfall. Damn you, Apple, and your sexy gadgets!

The Power?

I forgot how powerful wish lists and vision boards are. I just posted my wish list for this Christmas last Monday, right? Well, my mom decided she wanted to get me something and actually got me this:


Tomorrow, I'm going back to wish listing and vision board-ing my ass off.

#72. I've always wanted to learn how to play the guitar.

I am a frustrated musician, yes. I believe I wrote a song back in 2006 about the guy I was dating back then, when I was so sick and tired of always being number 2 to his "job". Which, when you think about it, is quite alright 'cause I didn't really like him all that much but it always is frustrating when you are not a priority when you make sure he doesn't feel he is not yours.

Anyway, that dream still hasn't died since I first had it way back 2001. I still haven't learned a thing about guitars but I kinda think it's okay 'cause a friend of mine - who's celebrating her birthday! - taught herself how to play the guitar and she's getting so good at it even with work and grad school and all.

So I stumbled upon a musician's friend website just this morning and the dream has once again started this fire in my heart. (Okay, I may be lying because I remember having a conversation with my boyfriend about it a few weeks ago but, yeah. Seeing sexy guitars can excite the hell out of someone like me.)

Now getting the urge to play More Than Words on my brother's guitar. That's the only song I actually remember how to play but I knew how to play Angel of Mine, too. I know that's not something you should brag about but those are the only two songs I know how to play, okay? It's worth documenting in case I bump my head and forget all about it.

This song!

Please remember that I am a proud jologs.

On that note, I looooooooove this song!


Every Pinoy (ABS-CBN) teleserye and movie from the past - I don't know - 2 years? has this song on their track list and it always, always, ALWAYS gets stuck in my head right after hearing it. Even if I don't know any lyric, the melody just sticks to you... No? Just me? Okay. I don't care. I just freakin' love this song.

I don't even watch Arrow.


But, yeah, this pretty much sums me up.

I love quizzes. Bite me.

Wishlist 2014

If I am not mistaken, this is my first wish list for the year which says a lot but I am not going to talk about that anymore.

Anyhoo, here are the stuff I've been lusting for these past few months:



Just 'cause I finally look decent in a bikini again.

I am willing to let my Samsung smartphone go for an iPhone 6 Plus.

For MacBook Air 11"


Honestly, I need an entirely different wardrobe with a lot of the same stuff I already have and more (skater) dresses but with smaller sizes. I don't want to brag or anything but it seems like I'm 2 sizes smaller than most clothes I have now. The sacrifices have finally paid off. Oplan Balik-Alindog 2014... Challenge completed!

Lily Aldrin

After years and years and years of watching and re-watching How I Met Your Mother, I've finally realized why I was always ready to scratch my friends' eyes out whenever they call dibs on her when the Sino-ka-sa-*insertshowhere*? game comes up during our drinking sessions: She has the most patient, understanding, loving, and supportive husband. Despite the freakout she always has when something huge comes up, her husband stands by her...even if that meant him, getting hurt in the process. I want that.

Also, she's way hot in season 2 so there you go.

Does this apply to EVERYONE?

"It's amazing how much your life opens up once you stop filling it with meaningless activities and pointless drama. Cut complainers, haters, manipulators, and other idiots out of your life and watch your life expand in every direction."
-Isaiah Hankel

Like, you know, cut people who are actually related to you out of your life to make everything bearable? I'm not saying treating them like they're dead or something but just - I don't know - stop letting them affect me and the decisions I make?

Sometimes the positive thinking quotes/advice I read online contradict each other, I don't know which one to follow anymore.

One of the best weekends of my life.

I enjoy going out with friends from time to time but I prefer staying at home. I don't know if I'm just extremely lazy or I'm what you call a homebody. Anyway, the ideal setting is someplace else rather than here at Pasig and that is exactly what I got just this weekend.

Lounging around the whole day and watching Masterchef US while cuddling with the two most important people in my life right now...that's all I did the past 3 days but I wouldn't have it any other way. It's so refreshing to wake up without having to dread what the day will bring and much, much more refreshing to sleep without carrying all the burden, complaints, and all the blame of the whole day on my shoulders. Plus zero airplanes flying over the roof every 15 damn minutes can take all the anxiety away from you.

The past weekend has brought me nothing but love, acceptance, calm, and relaxation. I want that every damn day for the rest of my life.

PS. This Alex and Zoe sticker set from Viber perfectly captures how our weekend went...plus, of course, a toddler who kicks everyone else on the bed while she sleeps:








I can't move on. Best. Weekend. Ever.
