2AM, Unfiltered

It’s one thing to be nocturnal and another to wake up in the middle of the night with thoughts you haven’t had in a while. Thoughts that used to make me sad or hurt..

January Days

Everyday I’ve been saying “best weather ever!” (who isn’t? haha! I’m hoping it’s here to stay *fingers crossed*).. just like that thirty-one days have passed, ending with a celebration of Chinese New Year!

In the real world, each of us have our set of friends. They come from different backgrounds, might have a different perspective in life, but ultimately we all have something in common that bonds us

In my case those who are close to me are treated like siblings, knows me inside out, and my partners in crime. We are there for each other in times of happiness and of need. We can’t deny the fact that there are friends who are closer to us compared to others – who we call ‘best friends‘.

In the military (US Army in particular), it’s the same thing, but they’re called ‘battle buddy‘.

The package came from China (and yes, before you ask, I purchased this before the whole PH-China dispute :P)

Waking up to a sunny yet chill morning, I knew it was going to be a good day, even if it rains. My day brightened up more when the package I’ve been waiting for has arrived.

As everyone knows I have been online shopping earlier May, wherein I got to purchase a bag from Chicify and a pair of doll shoes from Zalora.

In conjunction to my earlier post about a past relationship, you might have noticed that aside from a change in theme, I also changed my blog’s title.

One day I went out of the house to buy street food beside our village’s main gate. On my way home, I was getting tired of listening to my favorite songs that I shuffled my playlist and try other tracks that were there but I never really listen to.

Then I came across David Archuleta‘s song from his 2010 album, “The Other Side of Down”. Listening intently to the lyrics, I found a connection to my current dilemma at the time. Add the crazy weather and my sudden preference for everything simple and viola~

Up until now, my old email accounts that I don’t use are still active. I check them once in a while and get rid of spam messages. Sometimes I look over old messages and read them. Yup, those messages our friends pass us like they do in SMS. Some are funny, some are inspiring.

Here’s one that I’ve found worth sharing. It now makes sense to me 🙂

It is when you stop going along with the crowd and start realizing that there are many things about yourself that you didn’t know and may not like. You start feeling insecure and wonder where you will be in a year or two, but then get scared because you barely know where you are now.  You start realizing that people are selfish and that, maybe, those friends that you thought you were so close to aren’t exactly the greatest people you have ever met, and the people you have lost touch with are some of the most important ones. What you don’t recognize is that they are realizing that too, and aren’t really cold, catty, mean or insincere, but that they are as confused as you.  You look at your job… and it is not even close to what you thought you would be doing, or maybe you are looking for a job and realizing that you are going to have to start at the bottom and that scares you.  Your opinions have gotten stronger. You see what others are doing and find yourself judging more than usual because suddenly you realize that you have certain boundaries in your life and are constantly adding things to your list of what is acceptable and what isn’t. One minute, you are insecure and then the next, secure. You laugh and cry with the greatest force of your life. You feel alone and scared and confused. Suddenly, change is the enemy and you try and cling on to the past with dear life, but soon realize that the past is drifting further and further away, and there is nothing to do but stay where you are or move forward.  You get your heart broken and wonder how someone you loved could do such damage to you. Or you lie in bed and wonder why you can’t meet anyone decent enough that you want to get to know them better. Perhaps you love someone who doesn’t love you back, or worse yet, loves someone else. Or maybe you love someone but love someone else too and cannot figure out why you are doing this because you know that you aren’t a bad person.  One night stands and random hook ups start to look cheap. Getting wasted and acting like an idiot starts to look pathetic.  You go through the same emotions and questions over and over, and talk with your friends about the same topics because you cannot seem to make a decision. You worry about loans, money, the future and making a life for yourself… and while winning the race would be great, right now you’d just like to be a contender!  What you may not realize is that everyone reading this relates to it.  We are in our best of times and our worst of times, trying as hard as we can to figure this whole thing out.

Worth reading and still rings true. 🙂

My mom and I was supposed to buy shoes for me to use since a pair of my black doll shoes were unfortunately included to the trash and the other one I was using when I met with her is already damaged. We did get to look around but there’s nothing that fits me. In the end she’s the one who got to bought home a pair :))

Anyway, since she cancelled our scheduled plans last Sunday, I thought of buying one online so that I can still go out and apply for jobs.

Yet another package that came in the mail today! It was delivered by the same LBC personnel from yesterday 🙂

Honestly, I was worried while placing the order because it’s my first time to buy a pair of shoes without actually fitting it. I’m on the plus size side and I definitely had to rely on my size in centimeters. I am so relieved that it fits me well and very much happy that the insoles are comfy.

Cute little accents ♥

It came with a shoe bag too (see first photo), though it isn’t waterproof. I’m just a little worried about the shoe itself when it rains, because of the other material of the shoe. Or not, since I’m planning to buy another pair as an alternative.

I bought this from Zalora and paid via Paypal also. It was for sale at P760 and shipping was free. They also have a 30-day free replacement policy, which makes me want to buy from them again in the future. Package was processed using Xend but they route to it LBC for provincial deliveries (funny, Antipolo doesn’t look provincial to me anymore lol).

Two down, one more to go. Can’t wait for it 🙂

My Grandma woke me up by shouting at my ears because a package came in today. She was insisting she doesn’t know what do to with it. Anyway, she could have saved me and the delivery person the trouble by just signing it. Here’s one of the three packages I’m waiting for this week:

I’ve been staying at home for the past couple of days, since I don’t go beyond my ten-minute immediate places to go to. It feels like forever and I’m very uninspired at the moment. Since I’ve been looking over the garage sale with my grandma since Saturday (there were people already buying that day since the items are organized already), I took a little walk around the village.

One of the small toys my Uncle bought home one day. Will try my hand on Toy Photography hmm..
Random pink flower on the street.
Random white flower with the pink one on the same bush?
Had to enhance this a couple of times using Photoscape since the tree part was very dark on the original photo :/

I ended my little walk with..

Fishball, Chicken Ball and Kikiam :3

Oh! First day of May and it rained! 😀

We’re going to have a garage sale on Sunday and my uncle and aunt brought the items here. I felt like taking photos of them to post on Facebook.

EDIT: Our garage sale is extended! 😀

Here are some of my favorite shots:
