The past week felt so looooong, and today, I finally finished one of my short stories! It didn’t go as how I thought it up years ago. While writing this piece, I also looked back on the others and seriously considered abandoning most of them because most of them were ideas I had ages ago, and now, I have different perspectives [and a different love interest]. It all just feels so shallow and childish. I’m still thinking about it though, but what’s for sure is that I’ll be publishing new stories weekly! (Hopeful I can really accomplish this!)
I was looking for inspiration in one of my notebooks since I was planning on creating another watercolored lettering. I saw a rough and unfinished sketch of this, and with the Infinity War spoilers lurking around the internet, I decided to do it digitally. And because basically I had no idea how I would draw it.
Don’t we all have those times where we just feel disconnected from everything? I know I do. Sometimes I blame it on the weather. (Like now, thank you very much Baguio!) Or sometimes it’s just really that time of the month before I get my period. This is when I feel all sorts of feelings and where my anxiety is on the freakin’ roof. Most days when I’m in a good or okay mood, I sing along to the radio and I usually laugh at corny jokes and memes I see on the internet. But if it’s that time of the month, I’m usually quiet, aloof, and always on the verge of crying. Continue reading “Art as my therapy”
All I knew about bullet journaling before was that it’s artsy and creative, very pretty to look at. I also deduced from researching before that it demanded so much of one’s time. I wanted to try it but time was holding me back.
After working so much on my personalized planner in college, I decided that I was done with all these personalized artsy planners and journals. Especially then that most of my 8-5s were dedicated to work and weekends were meant for rest with the fam, and the occasional dates with the boyfriend.
Early in December last year, however, I chanced upon a post that mentioned bullet journals as a way to be organized. This made me start thinking about giving it a try. Especially now that I was leaving my job. (Surprise, surprise!) And so, a few days later, I started researching on how bullet journals were made. There are a lot of tutorials on the internet. Instagram and Pinterest are the best sites to look into. #BuJo Continue reading “Bullet Journal 2018”
Because of a mishap following a misread and misunderstood message, I had 3 hours to spend around town this afternoon. Following the announcement of the release of Abbey Sy’s new book The ABCs of Journaling yesterday, I thought about visiting the two bookstores along Abanao to see if they had it. Unfortunately, I was too early. I recently checked her site and it turns out the book launching is not until the 10th. Anyway, while browsing for art supplies, I chanced upon this cutie. Earlier, while having my phone charged, I vowed not to buy another journal and instead just make one. But it was similar to an old notebook I had. So I just bought it, and now I have another journal to fill! Yay!
