The Sunday Currently, v27

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.

FEELING
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.

READING
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!

WATCHING
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.

LISTENING
Mostly to a lot of Dua Lipa and Drake, lately.

EATING
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.

THINKING
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?

HOPING
I won’t be slaughtered by my boxing trainer this week.

I really need to say this. Sorry. It’s gonna be May!!!!!

FEELING
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.

WATCHING
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.

LISTENING
…to my sister screaming, “Everything’s so boring!!!” in the background.

HOPING
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.

THINKING
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).

WISHING
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.

FEELING
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.

READING
No book atm because I’m so bad at reading books nowadays. I promise I’m going to catch up!

WATCHING
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.

WEARING
The same black dress I wore this morning to work. Yes, I worked this weekend!

HOPING
For this week to be a strong, productive, kick-ass week in terms of work. And that I don’t spend anymore.

LISTENING

LOVING
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.

THINKING
About how I miss Mark. I think about him every day and everything still hasn’t fully sunk in. When will it?

The Sunday Currently, v24

Hello 2017 and a happy new year everyone! That greeting is still valid, right? After all we’re only 8 days into the year but it already feels like 3 months. Crazy. I’ve been a little slow on blogging, mostly because I’ve been prioritizing different things and most especially getting my daily life on track after travelling for 4 weeks. December was weirdly great and I’m always grateful to end the year on a good note.

FEELING
Crazy old. I turn 29 this year and it’s an age I never imagined turning. I’m not a fan of these feelings because I feel and look forever 19 or something. I was at a wedding yesterday where I had to make a speech and the host was genuinely shocked when I said I was only 28. And I had a full face of makeup to boot! I’m also still really lazy to wear glasses and I am feeling my eyesight just deteriorating, and been getting eye strain-related headaches lately.

READING
Then Unpredictable Consequences of Love by Jill Mansell. I started this book since mid December to keep myself entertained before and during travel lulls, most especially if I couldn’t sleep in the cruise. I had no trouble sleeping in the cruise and did not have many travel lulls so naturally the book is still unfinished. I’m looking forward to at least finishing it this month!

THINKING
About blogging backlog and updating this blog with things that happened in chronological order for the sake of my OC-ness. I didn’t want to start the year without a “2016 in retrospect” post and an update of my travels but I realized I need to start doing whatever I want and just go with it. So here it is!

WANTING
A new dumb phone. I currently have two smartphones right now, one for work and one personal, but since I’m getting a new job(!!!!!) I don’t think I need an extra smartphone anymore. I’m not sure where I’m going with this but yeah. I want a new cheap-ass phone.

WATCHING
I just finished the third season of Younger. As I grow older my time and mental capacity with TV shows and binge-watching them has greatly shifted. I used to have all the time in the world to just watch everything but now I limit to the shows that truly make me happy. Anything that stresses me out (no matter how great—don’t get me started on Black Mirror) is immediately a no in my book. Not saying I completely dismiss them, it entirely depends on my current state of mind, of course. I hope they never stop making light-hearted smart shows like Younger for my viewing consumption.

LOVING
My new Glossier Generation G in Crush. This is really bad, because now I want to get all the colors. The good news is (just a little consolation here), even after countless of Sephora trips last month I only bought very little. Yay me and reducing makeup obsession!

HOPING
For a smooth sailing month. As I leave my current job to start a new challenge in my professional journey, I am excited yet super nervous as this is uncharted territory. The fact that this position was given to me makes me all the most hopeful that I can perform up to what is expected of me.

LISTENING
Ed Sheeran released two really good songs in the past few days, one of them which I absolutely love. Shape of You is such a great song and will no doubt be one of his million dollar hits.

WISHING
For this year to be a kind one. Nothing more, nothing less.

FEELING
I’ve been having really sudden bouts of bad headache the whole weekend. It’s weird because when I’m doing something like reading or watching something it goes away but when I’m idle or just looking around that’s when I really feel it. I have a feeling it has something to do with my glasses usage because I’ve had to take it off and put it on again a few times this weekend.

READING
Miracle on 5th Avenue by Sarah Morgan. I’ve been having a good streak with cheesy, romantic books this month and fortunately this is a trilogy starring 3 friends and their 3 different love lives. So far, so good!
