Save for probably moving out of my parents’ house, 2013 wasn’t all that great. It also meant growing apart and straining my relationships with the very few close friends I’ve had as a child to my early teenage years. Some of them have started building their own families, almost making their kabarkadas at the bottom of their priority list (which is totally understandable). Some of them just decided one day to put an end to it, even if I’m having a hard time wrapping my head around their reasons. Some, though probably unintentional, lead the friendship on to something else that’s fleeting and disappear right after, leaving me completely clueless and hurt just the same. Some simply fade over time.
Speaking of time, I have learned the value of it more the day I started calling the shots. I had to set aside time for stuff I didn’t really put much thought on when I was still living back home: doing the groceries on a weekly basis, going to the bank, planning my meals/cooking my food, cleaning my room, etc. I realised none of it should be wasted, especially on things that put me nowhere or give me a lot of uncertainty. I can be uncertain of so many things in life like my job, the place where I’ll be in, say, 5 years, and so on but I believe that friendships are not one of them. Nevertheless, it’s comforting to know that friendships give one a great control over with because while it;s emotionally draining when you lose people you thought valued you, the chances of finding newer, better ones are almost always limitless.
Despite all of this, I’m very thankful that I still have people who I can constantly talk to about anything day in and day out. They’re even less than what I can count on one hand and I pray everyday that I get to keep them forrrr-ever because after all, friends are not just friends. They’re the family you choose.
Now excuse me while I pick myself up from yet another “feels” post.
Story of my almost non-existent social life. Mojito not necessary. Can be water as well :p
PS: New layout! I tweaked one of the preset tumblr themes’ colors and some little details I’m a bit OC on. Now if only I could figure out how the endless scrolling works on this one, it would be perfect. Maybe some other day. Zzz.
What’s even more sad is that he was just in a fund raising event for Haiyan victims before that unfateful crash. Thank you :’(

My loot from yesterday’s Sephora 20% off storewide sale! Quite a steal for a little less than a hundred dollars and for someone who only wears minimal makeup once or twice a week (haha lazy daisy), I’m pretty sure they will last for more than a year. Not bad eh?
What’s good about keeping a blog that’s not known to 99% of the world is that you can post fitting room selfies without getting judged. Yeah.
This was taken after work and a 45-minute use of public transportation so please spare me from the “you look tired” comment because really, I just am.
Say hi to my belly.
Xy and I spent a couple of minutes before work being total narcissists on Skype by taking this personality test. I remember answering the same thing in the past, but I totally had a different result. According to her point-of-view, me getting an INTJ outcome was a total spot-on. I’m currently going through everything and I can almost say the same thing - especially in the emotions department that it almost gave me goosebumps. It’s as if someone was writing a book about me that I myself couldn’t put into words! So many “oo nga noh! This is me!” moments in my head. How is this?!
BTW, INTJ is one of the rarest and most interesting types – comprising only about 2% of the U.S. population (INTJ females are especially rare – just 0.8%! That makes me special! Also, I share the same result with 2 American presidents, JFK being one of them. NAAAAKS!!! Now I feel more special and kilig!! Take yours here!
I ain’t even mad. Filed my Christmas leaves today and i can’t wait to go hooooome (again)!
My Singa Sissie (hahahahahaha #jej) and I go to Ikea on random weeknights after work for this awesome melt-in-your-mouth cake. And meatballs. And mushroom pancakes. Apparently they don’t only have stuff you want to fill your entire apartment with, their food is also something you’ll eventually look forward to. Nyum nyum
I’m getting the R4 so I can play unlimited games without breaking the bank (mwehehehe) but it’s sad I can’t buy now because nobody sells it here.
For now, bye 3dsxl, and hello, Tumblr. Missed you.
