Life Lately + Where Have I Been?

It’s been a little over a month since my last blog post entry and I swear, I’m not in a ditch somewhere as proof of this post. As I’m typing this, it’s 6:18 AM on a Sunday and I’m in bed, thinking about things. I’m thinking about the plans I have with my family later. I’m especially thinking about eating at Frankie’s when we’re in SM Aura because, I swear, they have the best chicken wings ever. Ever.

I’ve been suddenly out of the blogging world for a whole month and that’s crazy for me. I had a calendar all set up on what my posts would be then suddenly, I had no time and motivation to work on my blog. Like, poof, it’s gone. Which is ironic since I’m winning contests and being recommended in my work lately because of my ~writing skills~ and my colleagues always bring out that it’s because I’m a blogger, LOL. I’m still not in the usual mood I am when writing out blog posts but I’m forcing this one out to get the groove moving again. And I also missed reading other people’s blog like crazy.

So what kept me occupied while I was out in the real world? Let me count thy ways.

My Korean VISA has been approved!

This has been a source of stress for me lately, and I’ve been trying real hard not to get my hopes up for my October trip in case my VISA gets denied. But… it’s done! I’m sure to go to Seoul this Autumn! Irish and I got our VISA now; I’m hopeful for the rest of my travel buddies.

Pokémon Go has me going loco.

In which all the weekends since Pokémon Go has been released in the Philippines, I at least spend one of those days out to catch Pokémon. No kidding. I’m actually going out again today, lol. I’ve been poke-hunting with my brothers, aunts, AND uncles. My brother even agreed to be included in Ayala Malls’ promotional video about the Pokemon Go craze. He’s loco, as well. And I deny being related to him. Hah! Also, #TeamMystic!

I’m in a reading frenzy; read over 50 books since July!

When the reading bug bits me, it stays for a long while. I’m finishing 1-2 books A DAY for the last two months. It started by me just wanting to catch up on my Goodreads reading challenge of reading 100 books for a year, but now I can’t stop. Send help. I’m losing sleep like crazy. I’m waiting for my reading frenzy to slow down, so I can focus back on my blog. He he.

P!ATD and The 1975 are amazingly insane live!

I just attended my first music festival of the year: In the Mix! I have two things to scream about: Panic! At The Disco and The 1975. Brendon’s vocal range is so impressive, I want to cry. And the light works on the The 1975’s set is superb. It’s my third time to see them live, but I’ll never stop dancing along to their songs. I’ll make a blog post about this later. Hopefully. *crosses fingers*

I’m launching a personal finance blog.

This is something I’ve been wanting to do since forever. I finally decided on a name and I already have a few drafts up for its post. There’s a 80% chance I’ll do this under a pseudonym though. I’m excited for this project! Good thing tomorrow is a holiday. I have time to wrap it up and launch it.

Birthday & blog anniversary + giveaway coming right up!

I don’t think I have mentioned it but I launched my blog on my 20th birthday. I can’t believe it’s almost a year and that I met so many wonderful people through my blog. As a small thanks, I’m hosting a small giveaway soon! By soon, hopefully, it meant before my actual birthday which is a little over a week away.

Okay, it’s now 6:54 AM. Time to have breakfast. Hopefully I’ll be able to edit a featured photo and have this post up today. Ciao, darlings!

What have you been up to lately?
