The Sunday Currently Vol. 7

Reading

I just started reading Demian by Hermann Hesse. I found out about it because I’ve watching a lot of BTS-related videos lately. Some of its passages are read throughout the trailer videos for their Wings album and those got me intrigued.

Writing

Aside from this post, nothing. Ug, I need to write more often or journal.

Listening

Citizen’s entire discography on Spotify. Stoked for their upcoming album! Listen to them here: https://open.spotify.com/artist/0znuUIjvP0LXEslfaq0Nor

Thinking

“How do I recover from this sickness as soon as possible?”

Smelling

Cheese flavor from the chips that I’m currently eating

Hoping

To get some rest soon

Wearing

Shorts and sky blue shirt

Loving

Sleep

Wanting

To feel genuinely happy and stress-free

Needing

A break, maybe?

Feeling

I feel like shit. I know this is because I treated my body like shit for the past few weeks.

The Sunday Currently Vol. 6

Reading

English lyrics/ translation for BTS’ songs especially those off of their latest album, “Love Yourself: Her”

Writing

This Currently post but aside fron that nothing. I’ve been putting off writing on my journal for days now. Ihdk why.

Listening

Jung Sewoon – Never Mind (a.k.a. the Tsundere song)

Thinking

Wow, uhm, about a lot of things. The future, purpose/ passion vs. practical, the “right” path, etc. The most recurring thought this week though goes to: “Is going back home really giving up?”

Smelling

DURIAN! Hahahahaha. My lil bro brought some from home and I almost ate it all in one sitting. #HelloHighblood sana yun buti napigilan ko.

Hoping

Every time I feel like this, all I’m hoping for is some clarity. To be in the eye of the storm, even if it’s just for a short time.

Wearing

Black leggings and yellow shirt. Glasses. Hair in haphazard bun, as always.

Loving

Slow KPOP songs

Wanting

To feel genuinely happy and stress-free

Needing

A break, maybe?

Feeling

Body – tired. Mind – exhausted.

Clicking

Opened tabs with BTS lyrics for each of my favorite songs.

  • Save Me
  • Butterfly
  • Dimple

The Sunday Currently Vol. 5

Hello! The “Currently” series is now back on it’s regular programming.

Reading

I actually  just finished reading Windfall by Jennifer E. Smith so right now I’m reading Abbey Sy’s round-up post on her blog.

Writing

Well, this volume and also my daily report for our HQ.

Listening

Lately, I’ve been more into KPOP (BTS specifically) so I’ve been adding songs to my playlist on Spotify. It’s constantly on repeat right now.

Thinking

About what arrangement would work best for my sort-of bullet journal/ planner

Smelling

Honestly, nothing.

Hoping

Really hoping that my brother’s going to pay me back within the next week since I have a passport appointment coming up. Also, hoping for that appointment to go well.

Wearing

Old family reunion shirt and pambahay shorts as per usual. Oh, and eyeglasses.

Loving

There are a lot of things that I love currently. Here are some of them:

Music

Others

  • #Girlboss Radio podcast
  • New Philipps earphones
  • YayCam! Retro app
  • Funny BTS English interview videos

Wanting

Wanna One and Jung Sewoon’s debut albums to arrive faster than the ETA

Needing

Some genuine alone time – free from constant checks, social media and the invisible hand of work

Feeling

I have not processed what I’m feeling right now. Maybe sleepy?

Emails

The Day-off Currently Vol. 2

Reading
The Conjugal Dictatorship of Ferdinand and Imelda Marcos by Primitivo Mijares. I downloaded this last year since it was shared to the Filipino public but I’ve just gotten to reading it now. It’s very interesting especially for me since it’s an account of one of the dark times in Philippines history. Also, there are a lot of revisionists denying the abuses during that time so I’m curious as to what their reaction would be when and IF they read this book.

Writing

My end of the month report for February. I sound like a legit adult doing office work, don’t I? HAHAHAHAHA. Also, trying to remember what events and happenings I have this March since I have to put them up in my planner or else, I forget about them.

Listening

State Champs – The Finer Things. Try this out, guys!

Thinking

About what makes me happy and what’s next

Smelling

Nail polish, ’cause I applied some earlier

Wishing

For some clarity

Hoping

To figure out what path to take

Wearing

Blue tank top and black and white striped shorts

Loving

Happier podcast by Gretchen Rubin. Been listening to episodes while taking a bath and I must say, I feel happier after.

Wanting

Money. For everything I need.

Needing

Enough drive to pursue passion projects and alone time to ponder on my situation.

Feeling

Annoyed and slightly angry

The Day-off Currently Vol. 1

Hello! Before you get on with the post, just a little head’s up for future “Currently” posts. I have work on Sundays so I usually am too tired to write so I’m changing things up. Posts of this kind are now called “The Day-off Currently” ‘cause my days off are more interesting. That’s it.

Reading

I just finished a fiction book called The Hating Game so as of the moment I’m not reading anything. BUT! I have a pending book on my list, the one I talked about in the last edition (see, I forgot about it).

Writing

My end of the month report for February. I sound like a legit adult doing office work, don’t I? HAHAHAHAHA. Also, trying to remember what events and happenings I have this March since I have to put them up in my planner or else, I forget about them.

Listening

Currently playing Taeyeon’s first full-length album “My Voice”. She’s a KPOP singer and member of SNSD.

Thinking

Nothing in particular. Exactly at this moment, it’s: “What happened to We Are The In Crowd?”

Smelling

The lingering smell of white onion from the dinner I cooked earlier

Wishing

For continuous sunny days and strength when storms roll in

Hoping

To get a long vacation soon (away from life, maybe?)

Wearing

Grey sort-of cropped top and blue workout (?) shorts

Loving

The music video for Taeyeon’s single, “Fine”. Check it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NHXUM-6a3dU

Wanting

Sensible sandals that I can wear to work or to ganaps

Needing

Enough drive to pursue passion projects

Feeling

Post-exercise bliss

The Sunday Currently Vol. 4

Reading

There’s this book that was a present from my boss called The Winning Attitude by John C. Maxwell. It’s probably one of the very, very few self-help books I own. I’ve actually been enjoying the book which is a surprise since I only reserve that joy when reading fiction.

Writing

Rather than writing, I’m doing some admin work for our Cebu site. Just inputting the latest batch of reimbursements on an Excel document, ynow, boring stuff.

Listening

My personal playlist on Spotify is in shuffle mode so right now, it’s Jimmy Eat World – The Middle. Oh, and the background noise of the electric fan swinging it’s head from left to right.

Thinking

… about the things that I have to do or get done by tomorrow. I’m plotting my schedule later and set reminders because I am a forgetful person. RIP, memory.

Smelling

Nothing bad, which is really good. 😉

Wishing

I’ve been clouded by doubts lately so right now what I’m wishing for is clarity – of the mind and of the soul. Maybe some soul-searching is in order.

Hoping

I’m hoping to finish these backlog of admin work by Tuesday so that I’ll have some time for delayed personal projects.

Wearing

A sky blue Adidas shirt and some really cheap pambahay shorts that I bought from a local mart.

Loving

  • Nike’s Training Club app
  • This Is: TAEYEON playlist on Spotify
  • As It Is’ single, “okay”

Wanting

A Bazooka Rocks 2017 Day 2 VIP ticket because it’s fcking State Champs that is playing that day.

Needing

More than 24 hours in a day

Feeling

“I’ll be just fine”

The Sunday Currently Vol. 3

Reading

Posts on the wall of a Venice Anderson on Facebook.

Writing

Nothing, really. Just filling out the sections of this week’s Sunday Currently. No special write-ups yet. The muse is elusive.

Listening

Tonight’s tunes are from the “One Directions Hits” playlist on Spotify by Filtr Portugal. The song playing right now is Story of My Life from the Midnight Memories album.

http://open.spotify.com/user/filtr.pt/playlist/0RqF5xtzNWd1U3PZ3gjOED

Thinking

Is Php 2,000.00 is enough money for my four-day trip to Manila? Will I not be hungry? Short of cash? Also, how do I navigate the unfamiliar streets of Manila? Ugh, Manila.

Smelling

Nothing. I’m not near anything that could give off odor so I’m not smelling anything.

Wishing

I wish, I wish with all my heart to have a job that fits me and that I want to be doing. Also, to have an artist grade watercolor and fine brushes for lettering.

Hoping

I’m hoping that this trip to Manila to see Neck Deep will turn out to be a great one. It will be memorable for sure, I just hope that the memory will be one of those things that I’ll remember for life for all its good parts.

Wearing

An old sleeveless blouse that used to be something I love wearing when going out. It was transferred from the “going out outfits” pile to the “bed wear” pile long ago since it shows too much cleavage. Hahahahaha problems.

Loving

Carpool Karaoke videos on The Late, Late Show with James Corden’s Youtube channel. The amount of time I spend watching and re-watching those videos is ridiculous. I’m checking them out every day. (call me crazy)

Wanting

(Still wanting) A job?

Needing

Money and some time alone to do things that calm my soul

Feeling

Exhausted from the traffic because it’s the Sinulog weekend. But not exhausted enough because I’m still staying up to type this.

Clicking

Some Venice Anderson’s Facebook  profile because apparently it’s funny and trending now. Also, because my best friend told me so and I know that if I don’t check it out I will never hear the end of it.
