LIFE LATELY 09

Welcome to another life lately post, if you are one of my new reader (hello ☺️👋🏼), this segment is about my current monotonous life. What I’ve been thinking, feeling, wanting, doing, and hoping lately. Please share yours, I really want to know. 😊

Lately I’ve been thinking…

why I tend to write life lately posts when it’s raining? lol. Plus, what a coincidence with the photo that I keep on using as a featured photo. Anyways, what I’m seriously thinking about right now is what the future holds for the world with the virus still out there? When will it end? So many lives are being affected by this, so many livelihood were taken, so many precious time wasted. Are we ever going to move on from this?

Lately I’ve been feeling…

a bit lonely and anxious but other than that I’m fine. I’m feeling anxious because I feel like I’m wasting time and I quit my job too because of the fear of contracting the virus, I just don’t want myself to worry that I will bring home the virus with me and risk spreading it to my family everyday when I’m coming home from work. I got used to being busy because of work and now that I’m unemployed I suddenly feel like a freeloader.

Lately I’ve been wanting…

to get a home-based job to earn even just a little, and also for the sake of doing something with my life right now.

Lately I’ve been doing...

a lot of blogging and reading. Obviously you can tell that I am active again here on my blog because I have nothing better to do as of the moment, so if you are reading this and I haven’t been following you please do leave your blog or leave something for me to read, or if you need advice/help on something you can talk to me. I have a lot of time apparently lol.

Lately I’ve been hoping…

that this pandemic will end soon. And also that the government of the Philippines get their head straight with handling this pandemic.

How’s your life lately?

P.S. I’m serious about how you guys should give me something to read and stuff. Leave it in the comments. 😄

LIFE LATELY 08| QUARANTINE LIFE

Lately I’ve been thinking…

It’s a rainy day today and I’ve been thinking how relaxing the rain is after so many days in the torturing heat of the summer. I guess this is the start of the rainy season here in the Philippines (yey!) My mind is so calm lately but I’ve also been thinking about getting back to work, we can go back to work on Monday but the problem is there are no public transportation available for the commuters and my family doesn’t want to drive me to work. I should really learn how to drive now but good thing the company I’m working at said that it’s okay if we were still not be able to go to work because of the transportation problem.

Lately I’ve been feeling…

Calm. Being in this quarantine is a piece cake for us introverts. I’ve been wanting to have this kind of break since I started working and it’s sad that it had to be in this kind of way. I feel very relaxed, well I guess I can say too relaxed because I have missed sleeping in and not worrying about how early I have to get up the next day but when you got used to that kind of living you kind of miss it by now.

Lately I’ve been wanting…

To see my friends especially my boyfriend, we hadn’t seen each other since the start of the quarantine which is almost 2 months now. I miss them so much, I miss going out, I miss eating out and I can’t believe I’m saying this but I actually miss going to work lol. I have wanted this kind of break but I guess it’s too much now.

Lately I’ve been doing…

I’ve been playing a lot of video games and mobile games this entire quarantine. I’ve been replaying the story missions of GTA IV & V, I’ve been building houses on Sims 4 and I’ve also been playing Call Of Duty. How productive am I? lol This is also one of the reason that I barely write anymore (sorry). Playing games has been such an effective way to past time or waste time lol either way it somehow lessened the boredom I have been feeling since this quarantine started.

Lately I’ve been hoping…

That this pandemic will be over soon and we could all go back to our normal lives. This pandemic has its upside as well though, we get to spend some time with our family without any excuse or distraction that I hope we will all remember after this. I hope we’ll now value the time we have to know what is truly important.

How’s your life lately? 🙂

LIFE LATELY 07 | HOW WAS YOUR 2017?

Lately I’ve been thinking…

of things that I can do in 2018 to make my life a little more exciting because I want something new in my life, I want some changes. Don’t get me wrong 2017 was great but I feel like something is still missing, I don’t know what it is but I just want to do things that I’ve never done before and I want to do it this 2018 and I’m thinking of those things as of this moment.

Lately I’ve been feeling…

Emotionless, I’m in a point of my life where I don’t really care anymore. I’m neither sad nor happy. I’m waiting for something to happen I just don’t know what it is. It’s really hard to explain what I’ve been feeling lately. It’s like I shut off my emotions, it’s like everything I say and do right now is fake and I act like I do because that’s how normal people should react. I really closed the vents, it’s even harder to write it out when writing was my only way to express how I feel but right now it’s a struggle as well. 2017 was a complete opposite of 2016 for me where I had all those breakdowns, I became a robot this 2017. I wonder what I’ll be in 2018 *fingers crossed*.

Lately I’ve been wanting…

To be with friends, drink and go out. Stay in, write and read books. These are the things I miss the most since I started working, especially writing. This blog has been inactive for weeks and I’m really sorry about that, I really wanted to write but when I get home I just want to lie in bed and just sleep. Now, I want to make up for it this 2018 and be active again and I will really try to post regularly, even just once a week.

Lately I’ve been doing…

Besides from work, nothing lol. I go to work, go home, sleep and repeat. Well, I go out with my friends sometimes for a night out and I really make time for them even if I know that I will lose sleep and go to work the next day feeling like a zombie lol but it’s worth it. Also, my sister is back from Ireland, so every now and then we also go out and eat and just spend time together. We recently went to Boracay (too lazy to post photos) and spent our Christmas there, I needed that getaway.

Lately I’ve been hoping…

It’s New Year I just hope for the best this 2018 for everyone and I’m hoping that I get to do new things in my life and find more things to be excited and thankful for. I also hope you can all forgive this short entry yet again, adult life is taking over me lol

OVERALL LIFE IN 2017:

⁃ Graduated college

⁃ Struggle of finding a job

⁃ Struggle of transitioning to adulthood

⁃ Realized that the “real world” truly sucks but at the same time I find it exciting.

⁃ Felt like life was only beginning but at the same time I felt like life’s activity was repetitive and thought that I’ve already had enough.

When I look back at 2017, it’s quite a blur. It’s like somebody pressed the fast forward button and I can’t even remember half of the things that went down that year. All I know is that right now I’m still here and I endured it all so far and I’m hoping to do the same this 2018.

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE! I WISH YOU ALL THE HAPPINESS THIS 2018.


How was your 2017?

P.S. Leaving New Year’s Day by Taylor Swift just because it’s New Year’s 😊

LIFE LATELY 06


Lately I’ve been thinking…

A lot about my future and it’s a good sign because it means I intend to live a life and I intend to have a good one. Before I have this thinking what’s meant to happen will happen but now that I’ve landed my first job yes you read that write after deliberately “whining” here from time to time about how hard it was to get a job, I finally have a job now. It changed my mindset on things and in life. I’m officially an adult now and officially a corporate slave lol. It’s not going to be any easier and it feels like life is just starting for me. 


Lately I’ve been feeling…

Excited and nervous at the same time, tomorrow is my first day at work. I’m excited because it’s a whole new “game” for me and nervous because I don’t really know what to expect but right now the excitement weighs more than the nervousness.


Lately I’ve been wanting…

To start reading books again, I still haven’t finish my list yet that I had set 3 months ago and the last book that I had read was Sad Girls by Lang Leav that I wanted to write a reaction/review but sadly I did not had the chance to do. 

Lately I’ve been doing…

For the past weeks I’ve been busy going to job interviews and last week I finally got a job offer so I needed to submit the requirements which took up a lot of my time, adult life is really hard I must say but it pays off right? I’m an accounting staff and it was really hard for me to get a job because honestly I was picky especially with the position that I wanted and I know as a fresh graduate you’re not really in a position to be picky but I really wanted my first job to be aligned with what I studied (finance) and what I want for my career in the corporate world, this is a stepping stone for that. 

Besides all the job related stuff, I’ve also been busy watching series in between. I finished binge watching Game of Thrones and Designated Survivor. 😁 Great shows! 


Lately I’ve been hoping…

For a great career and hoping that my first day tomorrow will work out well (wish me luck). I’m just really glad that I’m not unemployed anymore, it’s quite depressing when everyone around you is busy doing something and you’re just sitting around, wasting other people’s money and having fun. 

I wish I could elaborate more on these things but I really don’t like doing lengthy posts. Anyway, have a great day everyone! 

How’s your life lately? 

LIFE LATELY 05

Lately, I’ve been thinking…

If I should write an individual post about my trip in Hong Kong and China or just share it in this “Life Lately” post. So, if I post this then the latter it is.

Lately, I’ve been feeling… 

Really tired 😴 That trip was really draining. The reason it was very tiring was because we went on a group tour so we had a very strict time schedule that we needed to follow. We needed to wake up at 6 am if we didn’t want to be late. And also it was very hot that it’s quite irritating, it added to that tiring feeling. But we also had fun especially on our free day which was our first day, we’re supposed to go to the Ocean Park but we had a delayed flight and also we just went there on our own. We took the train which me and my family felt like we had mastered the commuting life in Hong Kong lol. Though we got a bit lost which was really funny but we found our way around after asking for directions. When we got to the Ocean Park, we were so late and the ticket we bought was not an individual ticket, it was a group tour so we needed to be there on time. In the end we didn’t get to tour the Ocean Park which was really a waste of time, energy and money. We decided to go to Mong Kok instead.

We got lost in Hong Kong so many times which was probably the reason why we got so tired to the point that we can barely walk lol. 

Lately, I’ve been wanting…

To get a massage. To sleep. We just got back a few hours ago and I’ve already slept but I feel like I need to sleep more to catch up on all the sleeps I lost over that trip lol. 

Lately, I’ve been doing…

Too much walking and standing that’s why my legs feel like it’s going to fall off from my body. The clear overview of our trip in Hong Kong and China was tiring over fun. 

Lately, I’ve been hoping…

To finally get a freaking job!!! I put my job-hunt on hold because of this trip and now I’m back home and back to my normal life. I need to start that hunt again.
