I am very much ecstatic to finally own a new camera which is now resting peacefully at the palm of my hands: a Fujifilm X20. Oh my. I never thought that I will be able to purchase one that soon (few months after investing on an Iphone 5s). Perhaps, let me just do a separate post for the Fuji love.

Yesterday, my sister and I took test shots within the neighborhood. I was itching to have a moment at a wall decorated with oh so lovely bougainvilleas. Finally, we were able to steal a few seconds to do it. Mission accomplished! In spite of the heat, rusty “posing skills”, roughly unperfected cam settings and nosy rural teens (Sorry not sorry, they were quite a pain to deal with.), it was a pretty good start! I hope to do better quality/artsy posts similar to these next time. So excited.

I would rather be tagged as underrated than overrated any day. It implies that you are an unpolished gem, waiting to be discovered.

Pre-Midnight Iphone Monologues

I cannot stress enough how happy I am to finally do a breakthrough and muster up the courage to splurge on the “right things” at my early twenties. Woot woot.

Maybe this isn’t a biggie for trufax rich kids out there (You, lucky people). However, for an average yuppie who works her butt off 9-5/Monday-Friday, I guess I deserve a pat in the back for finally being able to invest on something with my hard-earned cash. A top of mind priority is my Iphone 5S. Yup. Go big or go home. 

WHY IT’S TIME TO UPGRADE TO AN IPHONE:

1.  YOURS TRULY IS ADDICTED TO THE INTERNET.- I need something to entertain me. All the time. I am guilty of leeching wifi at malls/coffee shops whenever there is a chance before. Hahaha! What the heck. Shoutout to Glorietta for being my free wifi mecca.

image

Also, my dorm is bordering to boring at times. Whenever I don’t have any plans with friends/workmates/boyfriend to hang out, I’d rather curl up and check Twitter or watch Youtube on my bed than stare into nothingness.

2. ALL MY PREVIOUS PHONES WERE VERY OUTDATED. - Yep, those Nokia phones and all. I *tried* lowering my costs by purchasing a second hand Blackberry. Unfortunately, it had an untimely death in less than a year! Goddamnit. I was just thankful that my boyfriend lent me his old phone that’s why I still had a connection to the world.

3. IN DIRE NEED OF A GOOD CAMERA- So, why didn’t I just get an SLR or something? Naah. I’m kind of leaning towards a mirrorless cam but I will purchase one once I have funds already. Huhuhu.  Anyways, I’m digressing..

(Me trying Iphoneography) 

Being a fan of anything multi-functional, I want my phone to be a very convenient companion in keeping up with primarily Lookbook and blog posts. Also, being able to snap random photos and moments with other people is a close second. I am trying my best to be able to update my portals as often as I have done before (circa 2011, pre-working girl days).

4. OMG. GAMES, MAN. - God, it sucked so bad when I can only play games like Candy Crush or Zombie Tsunami on someone else’s phone before. :( (Honestly though, I don’t play so much anymore now)

image

5. INSTAGRAM!!!!! - To the creator of this app/SNS, you da bomb. <3

image

6. HELP. I AM DISORGNIZED.- Oh god. I am so SO bad in remembering birthdays. If I can sync that Facebook friends’ detail in my gadget or get an app that does so, life will become easier. Also, I need to track my to-do lists and reminders more efficiently.

image

7. I AM A SLAVE OF CONSUMERISM.- Enough said. Aren’t we all? 

Oops, yup, so far that’s about it. Notice all those GIFs? I guess I have been reading a ton of Buzzfeed articles lately. Oh well. :|  Hahaha.

Now, what will my next big purchase be? Well, one thing is for sure- it’s going to take some time but it will definitely be worth it.

My Blog is Not Dead

Weeeeh! I’m really happy that my on-the-verge-of-dying enthusiasm for posting here is already revived. I was terribly busy and distracted for a long time. Due to this, my online presence has been unfelt. I don’t post in LB anymore, moveover, even browse the site. Wow. I have not taken new interesting pictures in a while as well. Tsk tsk. Here’s..

-

WHY I’M STILL HERE

-

1. Photoshop 7-I  finally have this installed again in my PC. Yay! This is one of the reasons why I feel handicapped before in blogging anything “creative”. Stupid me erased the old CS3 version before. SMH. 

-

2. Nice Theme- I have been searching forever for the perfect one. Finally, it already appeared. Phew. I changed it for the second time. I thought I was happy with the first one that I posted on Instagram. :b

-

3. Time- Less pressure=more room for happy stuff.

-

4. Blogspiration-  My shortlist are on the ‘Favorites’ part of sidebar. Haaay. Awesome people, Y U so perfect?

Help, I am horrible at people

vivatregina:

It’s yet another weekend that I’ve spent in the company of my books, my bunny, my bed, and mostly my mother. I just don’t go out, and it’s not for lack of things to go out to (because this is Manila; there’s so much going on). It’s that I don’t appear to have actual friends to go to anything with.

-

I mean, I have friends, I guess. Friends who are maybe a step up from acquaintances, who I can talk to on a level a little higher than superficial for a respectable amount of time, but I don’t have friends friends. I have a couple of people I consider best friends, who are all so busy that I only see them a few times a year. (But every time I do, it’s like not much has changed. I can count on those people to be there when I absolutely need them to be.) But I don’t hang out with them. I don’t have friends I can hang out with. I don’t hang out.

-

I scroll through my online feeds on a regular basis and see lots of people basically just hanging out with each other, and it looks fun, and I don’t have that. It makes me sad that I don’t have someone I can text at random to grab a drink or a bite to eat or some coffee or to catch a movie or to go with to some random thing. I don’t have anyone to be casual with.

-

Is it because I’m bad at people? I don’t like to be the initiator; I’m too shy. I don’t like to force my company on others because I feel like people feel like they have to put up with me. I rarely really feel welcome anywhere; I need to be a little drunk to be comfortable in the company of others. I think I’ve grown so used to being in front of a screen and having a QWERTY keyboard of some form at my fingertips that I’ve essentially lost the art of conversation. I feel dull.

-

For a while, I thought maybe I didn’t want to go out because I felt ugly and didn’t want to be self-conscious, but then I checked myself. That’s only true sometimes, and rarely.

-

Mom says I’m like Dad; I’m just the lone wolf type. I mean, I see my boyfriend a few hours a week and barely text him, and I’m surprisingly okay with that. (I know I have a taste for expensive things and I can be terrible when I’m moody, but I can honestly say that I’ve never been a clingy, needy, possessive girlfriend. He doesn’t have it so bad with me. Or at least I hope so.) And this is the person I’m closest to.

-

I just worry sometimes that I’m too young to be so closed off to everything going on around me, that maybe I should make a little more effort to get out there, try harder. But I just don’t know how.

-

I mostly enjoy being alone. It’s on the very rare occasions that I feel lonely that I wonder if there’s something wrong with that, with me.
