Just need to keep on keeping on


Hi blog, it’s been a while. Sorry for the lack of updates, I was really really busy with college work and only now I have the time to blog.

Well, I have to say that this week was one of those killer hectic weeks, but I went through it anyways. I think my assignment was done pretty well and my presentation wasn’t bad at all. I was happy, there was this huge cheesy grin on my face as a sign of success and relief on last Thursday. Nevertheless Mr. Friday took it all away.

One of my exam results from last term turned out to be far from what I expected and practically that particular subject equals to 2 subjects which means that this mark will decrease my overall university score like GPA kinda thing.

So last night I was down and I didn’t feel like telling anyone.

I just felt that this is unfair since I have worked my butt off and yet received a lower mark than those who didn’t even make an effort to care.

I know I’m far from smart, I’m slow in learning things, I’ve known that all the time. That’s why I try to work harder so that I could at least avoid the place at the bottom. I’m not doing it for anyone, it’s for myself, and I know I have given my best. But sometimes things just don’t go as planned, do they?

My 2 girlfriends tried to console me and I was glad they were around. I didn’t expect them to do so though, since my bestfriend doesn’t care about me anymore I stopped expecting a lot from others.

I like the little things that people do in times when I least expect them.

I couldn’t believe myself that last night I forgot about music. It was the first thing that could heal me. So just now I made a playlist of the songs that could back me up during shitty times and I found those old school stuff like Simple Plan and Avril Lavigne’s first album.

I took a lot from Simple Plan because their songs just perfectly reflect my middle school life, which is pretty similar as what I’m going through at the moment. I don’t listen to them as much as before anymore and yet somehow I still remembered all the lyrics and it felt so good singing them.

In addition, I looked back through some funny pics that I took with my friends. Just by looking at them made me giggle uncontrollably.









And I don’t want to worry too much of how these people will be like in the future because the most important thing is these moments happened and I was there enjoying them.

So I guess the morale of this post will be:

-If God hasn’t fulfilled your wish, it means that He has better plans for you.

-If you go in with high expectations, you’re setting yourself up for disappointments.

-The little things in life are the ones that count. So let go the past since it's gone and live at the present and make it beautiful. Live like we’re dying baby :)

Have an awesome weekend!

Nothing’s gonna tear us apart (TT #34)


My favorite love song of all-time!

I basically love all the songs in this movie <3 The BEST Disney movie ever!!

We were strangers, starting out on a journey
Never dreaming what we'd have to go through
Now here we are, I'm suddenly standing
At the beginning with you
No one told me I was going to find you
Unexpected, what you did to my heart
When I lost hope, you were there to remind me
This is the start

And life is the road and I wanna keep going
Love is the river I wanna keep flowing
Life is the road, Now and forever
Wonderful journey
I'll be there when the world stops turning
I'll be there when the storm is through
In the end I wanna be standing at the beginning with you

We were strangers, on a crazy adventure
Never dreaming how our dreams would come true
Now here we stand, unafraid of the future
At the beginning with you

I knew there was somebody somewhere
Like me alone in the dark
Now I know that my dreams will live up
I've been waiting so long
Nothing's gonna tear us apart

valentine_largeHope you all had a sweet Valentine’s day!

Mine? 6 hours of Management Accounting and a girls’ date (Carl’s Junior, pauseless chat, and dancing in the supermarket) :p

Til’ next time! :)

Didn’t have time to make posters and such, so why don’t we just make friends with those who did? :P

And your lips are mine, they’re raspberry wine (TT#33)


Such a cute video, love it :)

over the lights of sunset and vine
we're floating away from the fortune and fame
and your lips are mine, they're raspberry wine
your body's a map i will follow into the sky
cause what you got is all that i want
and still that's not enough, it's not enough

cause we're on fire walking love's highest burning wire
helium hearts we're falling skyward
we're never coming down
we're so high the city below gets small and quiet
every breath just makes us lighter
we're never coming down...

the further we go we're losing our clothes
one shoe at a time thrown over the side
like our fears and doubts we cast them out
till nothing is left and we're standing together now
cause what we got is all that we want
and that's always enough, enough for us


I was thinking to post this song next Tuneful Tuesday on Valentine’s week but then I remembered that I should post my most favorite love song instead ;) So stay tuned!


LOL sorry for the caps, I literally said it with full of excitement haha!

I’m so pumped!! Gonna post about it soon!

So let's dance until we die (TT #32)

Kimberly Caldwell! This is officially my new favorite song! Love her hair in this music video :)

Kiss kiss
Kiss tomorrow goodbye
This is gonna be a late night
Get get
Up and let it go
We've got the right to
Take this party over
Changing up the sound
Check your ego it's all a blur
Desperate boys and stupid girls

Here are some pics from my friend's birthday party last week. Overall it was fun, but it would've been better if we chose another place since the place we went was FULL of perverts! Eww! Desperate boys...

1st hour:

2nd hour:Birthday boy posing mermaid style.Typical squid face.
Align Center3rd hour:Passed out. LOL.
