October 7, 2014


Today is October 7th, Tuesday, 5:15 PM. I just spent 1 out of my 5-day weekend celebrating my close friend's sixteenth birthday, Zoe (on the left, with her bestie Rian) and it was a blast. The next day I got picked up and had my upper left first molar taken out to make space for my teeth (upper braces are coming next saturday!) so for the rest of the day I slept soundly. I woke up happy there was no school, and started doing productive Prom Committee Media things because sleep makes you energetic and inspired at the same time. A few hours ago, I ate out with my grandmother and helped her buy groceries. Here I am now, wishing the long weekend didn't pass, hoping for a reason to have no classes tomorrow.

This was an ordinary day, and I'm really thankful for it. No 'up' or 'down' happened, and it's great to live that relaxing, straight line in life. Little things like the smell of newly bought bread, borrowing my big brother's hoodie during sweater weather, playing the uke and eating chocolate almonds, and idling around watching my favorite youtubers make me content and happy.

Nah, I'm not craving so much the month October in the sense of Fall and Halloween and Pumpkin Spiced Whatevers, but enjoying ordinary days spent with yourself (or special people) make the month count. So so far, October really is the finest month--not because anything special happened, but because it is here, and it is present, holding many opportunities for us to take. Have a happy week everyone!

Happy September everyone :-) Excuses aside, I hope you're currently enjoying the fall season, and sorry for missing a whole month of blog posts. I don't even think I should explain, because you guys don't deserve explanations; you guys deserve kick-ass photography and writing. Rian, my very good friend, already had a photoshoot with me during the summer. But what can I say? We can't get enough of each other. Today was my Prom Committee's Garage Sale fundraiser, and we couldn't help but take pictures in the lot across. She's fiercely real, and we all know it. (I know I took too much vertical photos, someone help me.)

In case you're wondering: yes I am not dead. I have a bunch of photos in my library and I guess I just couldn't find the time to edit and write because--yes you guessed it--school. If you don't know what Prom Committee is, then here's a link to our Facebook. Yes, I'm in media, so yes me and a team made the posters. I've been feeling quite happy because my design has been printed onto our shirts and all members are free to wear it any time. Call me a narcissist, but I actually quite love it.

p.s. I can't believe I stopped blogging for a whole month...
p.s.s. ticks "Have your design printed on a shirt" on my bucket list
