Rediscovering old interests and hobbies.



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!)

Inspired by a drawing c. 2013

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.

Art as my therapy

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”

Bullet Journal 2018

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”

Take things one at a time, and don’t forget to breathe.

For the love of handmade boxes

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!

Second star to the right, and straight on ’til morning!

I was told when I get older all my fears would shrink,
But now I’m insecure and I care what people think.
