While everyone’s long weekend is just starting or halfway, I’ve already completed mine. Beach: check. Food: check. Alcohol: check. Family & friends: check. Catching up on sleep: check. Catching up on shows & videos: check. This Sunday is all about getting back on track for the month to come.
Tired. My long weekend had already started since Tuesday afternoon and I am spent. Not so much physically but mostly mentally. My mind was just all over the place since then and I haven’t done much introspection. It’s a little annoying, to be honest.
A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara. Rob has been recommending this book to me and after a good light reading streak the past few days, I am ready to tackle a good and long book–this one is almost 800 pages!
I just finished episode 11 of Riverdale. We’re getting so close to finding out Jason Blossom’s murderer! I’m also watching Strong Woman Do Bong Soon. After Weightlifting Fairy, I wanted another bearer-of-good-vibes kdrama and while SWDBS is one, I didn’t realize it actually masks as a mystery/crime thriller of some sort. I’m not complaining.. episode 7 is where the good stuff starts. You always have to be patient with kdramas and I think that’s the beauty of it.
Mostly to a lot of Dua Lipa and Drake, lately.
I haven’t had dinner yet (time check 11:44pm) but I found this weird small cookie/cake hybrid type on the dinner table and I had two of those. I didn’t like it but I wanted to confirm my preference after the 2nd one. Still do not like it.
About how it’s almost my birthday month! It’s another one of those “slow the fuck down, time!” moments again. It’s the last year of my 20s! What have I done with my life? What am I hoping to accomplish? Why am I
still single again?
I won’t be slaughtered by my boxing trainer this week.
I really need to say this. Sorry. It’s gonna be May!!!!!
All sorts of things, listed below:
1. HAPPY – because I just got my period (FINALLY) today but I am also suffering from major cramps.
2. RELIEVED – because of said reason above, suffering from PCOS makes you feel these things. A period is like a major win in life.
3. CRAZY – all these hormonal emotions are getting the worst of me. I want to snap at people, my PMS was about 2 weeks long and it’s been a whirlwind of emotions.
4. ANNOYED – my ISP has been really shitty lately and if only I had the power to burn down their building I would.
5. EXCITED – because in about a month one of my bestest friends is getting married and it’s on my birthday weekend and I’m a bridesmaid and there’s so much to plan and gaaaaahhhhhhh the emotions!
So there’s that.
I finished Part 2 of Terrace House Aloha State in a span of 2 days and now I’m catching up on Erik Conover’s vlogs. I haven’t been good with YouTube lately and I’ve sort of abandoned religiously watching vlogs but I am always catching up with his.
…to my sister screaming, “Everything’s so boring!!!” in the background.
I have the willpower to update this blog more often. I also want to be able to catch up on my journaling–or bullet journal however you want to call it. I think I have a backlog of 2 weeks now.
About New York City and how I miss it all of a sudden. It must be great during springtime; not too cold (the time when I was there) and not too hot (that it becomes a pain to walk everywhere in the heat and crowds).
To have a good few days off this week. It’s the Holy Week meaning I get to go home to the province, chill and just take everything slow and enjoy my long break. After 3 months of hard work in the new job and just getting the hang of things, I’m glad I have a few days off to recharge and power through work again.
A bit of regret over eating that bowl of rice for dinner. Mom cooked shrimp and it was too good. A bit tired too because I was semi-working all weekend. I am also very very sleepy and will probably doze off as soon as this entry is published.
No book atm because I’m so bad at reading books nowadays. I promise I’m going to catch up!
Descendants of the Sun and it’s seriously stressing me out. I think gone are the days when I could stomach deep Song Joong Ki (e.g. The Innocent Man/Nice Guy) dramas. It’s seriously stressing me out even though I’m just on episode 5. I might consider switching to a lighter one and people have been recommending Weightlifting Fairy.
The same black dress I wore this morning to work. Yes, I worked this weekend!
For this week to be a strong, productive, kick-ass week in terms of work. And that I don’t spend anymore.
That I can easily fall asleep at night now because my job is pretty mentally demanding on most days. Save for my recent PMS, I have not had a bout of insomniac tendencies.
About how I miss Mark. I think about him every day and everything still hasn’t fully sunk in. When will it?
Yesterday, I lost one of my best friends to cancer. I would like to dedicate my love for this book (and our love for Friends) to him.
I’ll love you forever
I’ll like you for always
As long as I’m living
My baby you’ll be
Rest well, Mark. Wherever you are, there’s no shortage of Friends reruns that you can always watch. Love you forever.
