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.

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.

The Sunday Currently Vol. 2

Reading

I kind-of paused reading It’s Kind of a Funny Story after I saw the movie. Right now I’m reading Abbey Sy’s 2016: First Few Days post on her blog artistic-dreams.com. Her blog is one of the few non-social media sites that I enjoy.

Writing

This edition of The Sunday Currently. I know it’s almost Monday already here in the Philippines but yeah, I’ll try to make it before midnight. The time is still 10:38 PM so I know I can.

Listening

I wanted to listen to Kristel Fulgar’s viral video of her singing JB’s Love Yourself but the laptop doesn’t play audio for some reason. Hmmmm… so now I’m listening to my mother yawning and the sound coming from the fan.

Thinking

About how great is would be if I have a job. Hahaha actually no. I was thinking about how I could earn money and do the things I’m passionate about.

Smelling

Canned sardines in tomato sauce. I fed the dogs earlier with that plus rice and made the decision to use my hands to mix the two. Now, I can’t get the smell off of my fingers.

Wishing

Currently wishing that my CV impressed the people at Equality Marketing so they’ll include me in the list of applicants up for interviews. Also, that when I get short-listed, I’ll nail the interview and be hired. *fingers crossed* 🙂

Hoping

I’m hoping to have a photo taken with the boys of Neck Deep during their concert in Manila on the 28th. Also, that I’ll get to hang with them. But above of all, I hope they’re not douchebags. Hahahahaha

Wearing

My Christmas-themed leggings (printed with reindeers and poinsettias; colors: red, white, black) and a plain blue v-neck shirt.

Loving

My Dong-A gold and silver metallic pens. I write using these two on my notebook’s black cover and I love the result!

Wanting

A job?

Needing

Funds… enough money to enable me to buy brushes, watercolors, paper and merch!

Feeling

Happy because I got to spend time with my little pamangkin. We had a little almost-sleepover.

The Sunday Currently Vol. 1

Reading

It’s Kind of a Funny Story by Ned Vizzini. I watched part of the movie last night after I saw it as a related video to the ME, Earl and the Dying Girl trailer. I had the PDF copy of the book for a long time but it was only last night that I started to read it. I’m on page 75 now.

Writing

This first edition of The Sunday Currently. I plan on keeping this as a constant thing in my new blog, kind of a series that people can look forward to.

Listening

Wake Me Up When September Ends by Green Day. I remember jokes being thrown towards Green Day/ Billy Joe when September ends and then I remember what the song is about. We can be kind of insensitive sometimes.

Thinking

Nothing in particular but my thoughts keep coming back to the scene when our dog ate its own vomit. Gross, I know but they said it was normal.

Smelling

Nothing.

Wishing

I’m wishing that I have enough money saved for the Neck Deep concert that I’ll be attending on the 28th. Also, that I’ll look good with a long bob with beach waves.

Hoping

I’m hoping that I’ll have a job soon. I have been unemployed for a while and it’s not fun anymore. I have tons of free time and not a lot to do.

Wearing

My new BNY racerback sleeveless which is a Christmas gift from my mother. It’s supposed to be worn under a cropped top but I don’t really care for that. I just love this.

Loving

The Me, Earl and the Dying Girl movie. Ugh, I rave about it so much.

Wanting

A hair cut like the one Olivia Cooke had for the MEATDG movie (see how much I love the movie?)

Needing

Funds. Money, money, money. And a job.

Feeling

Sad? Useless? A little depressed? I don’t really know.

Clicking

Nothing. Just typing out words for this.
