“And because there is something they can’t see people think it has to be special, because people always think there is something special about what they can’t see, like the dark side of the moon, or the other side of a black hole, or in the dark when they wake up at night and they’re scared.” ― Mark Haddon, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
What if the only way to thank you for this life is by having a cup of brewed coffee every morning around a corner, facing the wild bounty of beauty this life offers. The comforting breeze of wind that touches every leaf of an old oak tree, still standing strong behind my fences, who speaks a fresh sound of “hail ye rise of the eastern sun” to tell myself, what, and how to accomplish everything that is given to this pretty day. To tell me that I have already sought the courage to face every challenge there was. Sip by sip, the cup’s already half empty, or half full maybe? ‘Til the warmth the coffee brings, from the feelings of how my taste buds love it, until it reaches the tip of my toes. I inhaled the fresh morning’s provision of a new life, closed my eyes, and spread my butterfly-wings for the long cold night’s gone. Be brave, you say. I was and still is, for the roaring thunder of yesterday already brought the rainbow upon my honest eyes witnessing above these dying cherry blossoms in my garden of mishaps, that slowly gaining it’s power of white and pink colors of beauty is now embracing the eastern yellow sun, and now is telling me how beautiful life is. The cup’s already empty, but I still can make another for everyone. For they have to be thankful of this life. Now I say, thank you, God. Good Morning!
Proud sister, guilty here. Yeah whatever I’m going to post this. My sister is now an RN. Hoo-hoo as expected, she passed the board exam. Okay, we weren’t shock. We all know she will pass, but she topped 3rd nationwide!And I was like, what the fck how did she do that?! And relatives said something like “Why not send her to Stanford University?” bla bla bla. And that their Cum Laude didn’t even made it to top 10. I feel lucky. My parents’ expectations from me isn’t as high as for my sister. I shouldn’t feel pressured, but hell I am. I just don’t want to be a disappointment. Not again. I know, deep in their hearts, they aren’t happy when I changed my course. I’m the kind of person that always say “I do what I want.” regardless of the risks it’ll cause me, now or in the future. Go kiss your ass. It’s all about learning. It’s about the journey, not the destination.
Winning a giveaway may feel great, but actually receiving these stuff as a gift, especially from an inspiring person, is priceless! Sss-s-speechless! I was expecting the prints, as a hint Kuya Glenn (pseudoperfection) gave me. But the shirt, the book, and a handwritten letter was absolawezing! (did I just say that?!) I can’t put my excitement and happiness into words!! But, geez, thank you so much Kuya Glenn! :) I really had an awesome 17th Birthday! & for a moment, the world became a wish-granting factory for me. Merry Merry Christmas!
Book of thoughts. I write, doodle, illustrate & whatnot in this notebook, This serves as my daily inspiration, motivation and my escape from the real world to my own world where I can write and think of almost anything unspoken. It’s good to have this. My daily breakout from insanity. Hi good evening. ≡
Okay. Not bad for a first timer :) Mum bought me Art Studio watercolors lately. I don’t know if that’s a ‘cheap’ brand or what. Haha. I got inspired by those speed paintings on youtube okay.. I lost my old paintbrushes and I only used ONE old cheap brush of my little brother for the whole artwork. Not bad eh? :)
I used a Canon 600D, though I still don’t know how to work well on it’s manual mode, i’m pretty sure I made the right settings on taking night photography last night. Viewing on my camera, the shots were really great!! But when I transferred them on my laptop, they turned out darker. When I tried editing them, they were grainy and looked low quality (btw, I edited the photo above). I know, I used a kit lens in shooting long exposure shots (small aperture) resulting to darker photos. But, they were really great on the camera. Ugh I was so disappointed. Look how beautiful last night was T.T
