The Sunday Currently, v21

It’s almost the start of August! We’re officially in the 2nd part of the year so I wanted to make sure to put out one of these before the madness of the upcoming month.

READING
My WP drafts page. I haven’t been blogging much this month because I’ve been slacking off on finishing a couple of drafts. I’m in that phase again where I write so many things but don’t have a conclusion to any of them. It’s annoying because there’s a chance I won’t ever go back to them.

LISTENING
My July Spotify playlist. Time to open up another one for August!

THINKING
About events this upcoming week. Koko (our new puppy!!!!–haven’t blogged about this) is getting her shots this Tuesday; then going to a club opening on Wednesday and some stuff planned on Thursday and Friday that’s still kind of tentative. Bring it on I guess?

SMELLING
The Lemon Buttercream Hand Foam I used to wash my hands and arms with after playing with Koko before retreating to my room.

HOPING
To have luck on getting that extra income. Ya girl needs to get them paper.

LOVING

1. Koko!!!!!! We got her last Tuesday from a mutual friend. We were supposed to just check her out and think about it but the moment we saw her we absolutely fell in love and decided to just bring her home with us. I think if I decided to wait any longer I wouldn’t have been able to sleep. She’s been such a little ray of sunshine during my days and my heart is so full.

2. My new labeller (Casio Label Printer KL-60). I’ve been labelling all my things and it’s put me in such a great mood. It’s the best!

3. Today. I wasn’t supposed to go out because I wanted a Sunday at home, but my friends convinced me to and we had a good afternoon of coffee and laughter and had super cheap dinner. #SundayFunday

NEEDING
To really curb my shopping urges. I decided to take out the “WANTING” part of this series so that it doesn’t remind me of the things I want and instead focus on the things I need.

FEELING
Pretty okay and excited for the coming week, but I have to admit my anxiety is always lingering and coming up at the most random of times. I don’t like it, but I’m just going through each day and trying to beat it. Otherwise, how will I end up if I let it win?

THINKING
About how full I am and that I ate rice for dinner. I’ve been laying off rice for the past 2 months now but I couldn’t help it earlier tonight during dinner with friends. We decided on Filipino food and it’s just kind of impossible not to have rice with it. No regrets!

SMELLING
Sleep Lotion by Bath & Body Works in Warm Milk & Honey that I found in my mom’s room. It’s such a soft smell and so pleasant that I think I’m going to steal it from her and use it from now on.

FEELING
Generally good. It’s been a great week with a good balance of work, play, food, friends, and rest. Let’s use the #blessed hashtag for all its worth. I’m also excited because as of 5 minutes ago, I think I found a dog!!!! Gaaahh can’t wait to meet her and see if she wants us as her new family.

LISTENING
Drake. Drake is always a good listen.

LOVING
The weather this past week. Overcast with no rain but not too sunny either. Just right. It’s also my tonsillectomy’s one year anniversary so I’m overall grateful and loving the fact that I am living a life with no more tonsillitis. So happy.

HOPING
For my internet connection to get reconnected because it’s been down the past few days. We have two connections at home so I’m not too worried but this particular one is just for me and work, and the other is for the family.

WISHING
For a productive week at work. Good challenges, strategies and tasks are always nice for the brain.

WONDERING
If I should stay up/wake up for the EURO finals later. I’ve been good with next day highlights and replays of the recent matches I’m interested in. It really sucks to be a European football fan in Asia because the game times are such a bitch!

This is going up quite early because I’m home on a Saturday x Sunday night! I’ve quite a lot going on for July so it’s a homebody weekend. The photo above correctly depicts my current position right now, lying on my stomach in bed in the dark, typing away on my MacBook.

WANTING
A new dog. It’s been exactly 4 years since Sushi died and she will forever be missed. Recently I’ve been getting that lingering feeling of having a pet and I think it’s time and that I am ready. I’m just looking for places where I can adopt or buy—whichever comes first. Owning a dog is a huge responsibility and should be taken seriously so I’m not going to rush into it because it’s something that requires a lot of decision making and extreme thought. Also when we bought Sushi, she chose us and not the other way around, so unless I get the same vibes from our soon-to-be dog then I won’t haphazardly make any rash decisions.

LISTENING
All of GOT7’s hits from beginning to end. I’ve been so out of touch with all of K-pop in the past few years but I try to keep up with my (very few) favorites, and GOT7 is one of them.

WATCHING
I probably spent the whole day yesterday watching Edward Avila‘s videos on YouTube. I’ve been going back to watching a lot of 8 to 10 step Korean skin routine videos in hopes of getting inspiration in improving my own skincare routine. So far it’s not happening (yet) as I am still lazy as fuck. Of course, one video led to another and I suddenly I drowned myself in most of his videos. Sometimes I feel like male makeup vloggers tend to go overboard with their makeup and I’m not bout that life, not even with female vloggers, and Ed’s videos were just what I need from a male perspective. Straightforward, focusing on the base and brows which is exactly like me in my day to day life.

FEELING
Not sure. I’m definitely feeling broke, to be honest. My phone bill arrived last week and I have to pay more than double my monthly bill so that sucks. Blame roaming and being in two countries in a span of half a month. Oh well, that’s the price to pay! Other than that my abs are feeling pretty sore because last week has been all about the cores and planks.

LOVING
My Wet n Wild Vegan Brushes! They are pink and absolutely gorgeous, inexpensive and super great to use. WNW just restocked them on the website after being sold out for over half a year. Grab them if you can, they are definitely worth it and MORE. I have most of the face brushes: Contour, Flat Top, Large Stipple, Blush, and Powder Brush.

NEEDING
To shampoo my hair already. Saturday night at home made me do weird things like using up all of the hair products I own into my hair, including samples of past beauty boxes related to hair that I don’t use anymore and need throwing out. I have a mix of weird gunk from salt spray, hair masque, volumizing oil, pre-shampoo conditioner all mixed and I won’t be washing my hair until I wake up later in the day. I guess I’ll just have to sleep this off!

READING
I just finished reading Me Before You in hopes of catching the movie before it disappears but honestly it didn’t move me much. It kind of shocked me because I am the most emotional person but I didn’t even shed a single tear while reading the book. I prefer Jojo Moyes’ 2014 book One Plus One—oh I cried buckets while reading that one.

HOPING
For a smooth week ahead! Mom leaves for Jakarta for a month, I have a lot of errands to do because it’s the start of the month and I want to close things out as much as possible, and I’m going to Boracay next weekend! Definitely looking forward to that as it will be my first time.

FEELING
Healthwise, better than I ever did last week. My nose isn’t clogged anymore but I still have a bit of a cold in the form of excess phlegm (sorry for the visual). A bit nervous too, because I’ll be starting the GM Diet this week. I feel like I ate too much during my trips last month that I need to detox.

WATCHING
I watched Zootopia today and incredibly enjoyed it. Now I’m annoyed at myself for not catching it in the cinema. There are so many movies I haven’t watched in the cinema this year. Boo me!

NEEDING
To get my finances in tact. I really need to be more financially responsible.

WISHING
For this week to be kind of to me, both mentally and physically!

THINKING
About where I put my earphones because I need them — my pink Urbanears Kransen. I absolutely love them and have been using them nonstop since I bought them last year. They haven’t conked out on me and have been surprisingly durable with better than average sound.

WANTING
To go back to yoga again. It’s been almost 2 months.

LOVING
My Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim Light. I’ve been raving about this ever since I started using it.

The Sunday Currently, v17

Welcome to the very first edition of this years’ The Sunday Currently! We’re on to the 3rd week of the 3rd month of the year and time is showing no signs of slowing down. My weekends are finally starting to show a footing of routine but I’m still at a crossroads of whether I like it or not. This has been the most unexpected year ever. Anyway, on to the post!

FEELING
Having a headache. I’m not sure if this was brought on by the chocolates I had after dinner and the tea I had with it, but as I sat down to catch up with work (yes, on a Sunday night), an onset of a migraine arrived. Tempted to take a Nyquil but I still have work to do so it will have to wait once I’m done. Aside from that, it’s been quite an eventful and satisfying weekend so I’m capping it off with a good dose of fangirling.

WATCHING
Honestly, videos related to work that I really don’t want to elaborate so let’s just leave it at this.

THINKING
About too many things all at once I don’t think my mind is coherent enough to translate it all to a post. Work, how to get through this week, my future, JaDine, how to finish this challenge of a game I’m playing, travel plans. Ugh. I feel like I need to empty my brain for a bit and just be literally thoughtless. I think it’s also not helping that my period is supposed to start in less than a week so maybe it’s a combination of that.
