Hi. Do you have an e-book copy of The Curious Incident of the Dog in Night Time?

Yes, I do. If you want a copy of it, come off anon. :)

so tempted to create a Wordpress blog again 

April 20, 2014 / 10
I’m currently…
reading Veronica Roth’s Allegiant. It’s taking me ages to finish this!
writing baloney on my journal, and this post. 
listening to some Jack’s Mannequin’s stuff. I heard a song of this band earlier and I liked it and thought of downloading an album but I ended up downloading their discography. 
thinking about how my circle of friends is unbelievably small and how I don’t have much connections out there. Stinging.
smelling my shampoo’s scent over some layers of sweat — if that makes sense.
wishing for an influx of cash and better speakers for this computer.
hoping for a better me. Yep.
wearing nothing but my insecurities. Jk.
loving my torrent’s download speed. And my hair right now. You know how hair gets so fab before you go to bed? That.
wanting a bar of fine chocolate, four pieces of chicken wings from Yellow Cab, a can of Cali, someone.
needing a not messed up circadian rhythm.
feeling blessed and satisfied with how my Sunday was spent. 
clicking the ‘x’ buttons of my opened tabs because I’m planning to go to bed aka read a book now.

H e e y.

I haven’t been active and posting these past few days but the ‘Activity’ thing on my sidebar seems to be doing otherwise. I don’t know where all my new followers came from—I must be doing something wrong—but thank you for considering my blog. *smiles sheepishly*

Not only I have been inactive in Tumblr lately, but I’ve been also not updating my Twitter as much as I normally did.

Things in my life must be that serious.

Contrary to that, I deal with anything but serious stuff right now. I’m just preoccupied with a lot of house chores, that they aren’t burden to me anymore. After finishing those, I usually find myself lying on my bed and taking a nap. 

On the other note, I need to finish Allegiant already and move on from this dystopian trilogy to a light YA thing. Then read a kind of heavy one again and then a not too heavy and the cycle goes on.

I need to finish Community’s season 4, too, before FOX starts airing season 5 every Wednesday. Hurray to watching TV shows from an actual TV! 

One thing that’s been bothering me also is money.

And trying not to get disturbed by such scum of the earth.

But here’s something that should pester me seriously: my writing skills and the lack thereof.

posting to let you guys know, not that you care, that i’m still alive

I’m currently scrolling through different blogs of cool and pretty interesting 20-something-people. I’m learning a lot, honestly. I’m awestruck right now at how they find bliss and pleasure in this world I treat, well, diversely as they do. Of course, their lives aren’t always high-spirited; they have internal struggles their readers aren’t aware of. But keeping my point, they keep their lives in state of euphoria and see things in different perspectives. 

It’s cool how they have jobs in line of their field of expertise or interests. They get money from what seems like “not working at all” because these works are already part of their daily lives. Perhaps, that’s already the trick.

I’m turning 18 in June and just few days ago, I decided to sketch out my ultimate goal and sort of life plans in the future. I won’t limit myself to do just those things, though, because I know, I’m still in the process of what they call in movies “character development.” Things are yet bound to change. And so are my plans and goals.

I want to be careful with my decisions and life. I also want to not be careful with my decisions and life and commit mistakes so I can learn. However, there are so many ways to discover the black and white of the world.

Some people might think, “You’re full of crap. You’re still young. Live it. That kind of bull isn’t your problem yet.” 

Excuse me, I’m trying to be responsible here.

  • Mom: *hugs me* Thanks, anak. Feel na feel ko na may babae ako sa bahay. (talking about me helping with chores)
  • Me: Ma! Sexist! Gender roles!
  • Mom: Sabi na nga ba, sasabihin mo 'yan e.

recommend some indie rock or indie pop artists please?

Oh, um, I’m still in the process of exploring indie stuff so… Okay, here are some cool bands I know: New Politics, The 1975,  American Authors, The Kooks, Arctic Monkeys, The Airborne Toxic Event, The Neighbourhood, The Temper Trap, Imagine Dragons? Uhh… What else… 

Hey, do me a solid and listen to She’s Only Sixteen. Yay. Let’s support OPM.

School was still ongoing when Allegiant was published (2013). As well as the fifth book of the Lorien Legacies by Pittacus Lore, The Fall of Five, and the fourth of the Lux Series by Jennifer Armentrout, Onyx. 

I swore I’m not gonna read these books first because I want to focus on them and reading them while doing school stuff is not a good combo.

And now, summer has begun. The time has come.

I’ve kind of forgotten what happened in Insurgent so I decided to reread it before going to Allegiant. I’m still on it. I’m going to read Onyx next, then The Fall of Five (the book before this one too is a blur to me now).

This is a good time, too, to finish the books I’m still holding. They are: 

  • The Diary of A Young Girl, Anne Frank
  • The Catcher in the Rye, J.D. Salinger
  • Mrs. Dalloway, Virginia Woolf
  • The Time Traveler’s Wife, Audrey Niffenegger
  • Angels & Demons, Dan Brown
  • The Miserable Mill, Lemony Snicket

I also have a list of the books I should reread just because they’re awesome.

  • Being Henry David, Cal Armistead
  • After Hello, Lisa Mangum
  • The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks, E. Lockhart
  • Let It Snow, John Green
  • Graffiti Moon, Cath Crowley
  • Love Is the Higher Law and The Realm of Possibility, David Levithan

Wala lang. Hahaha!

Okay, if you’re following me for a long time, you probably know that most of the books I read is not the tangible, physical ones. I read… pirated ebooks. Oh, crap. I’m not helping the authors, I know, but I’m out of fund for books right now. Sigh.

I have many .epub type of ebooks, so if you guys want some, just let me know. I may have the books you want to read. Or I may not.

HAPPIER THIS WAY
by Save Me Hollywood

I was in my mom’s car, tuned in to Magic 89.9’s Local Vocal, when I heard this band play and talk about their music. I found them interesting and amazing—Paramore-ish especially the vocals—so I checked what more they’ve got on the internet. Most of their stuff sound really pop punk, which is what I am interested in right now. 

Save Me Hollywood is a five-piece Quezon City-based Filipino rock band. The members are from acknowledged OPM rock acts: Chicosci’s Carlos Calderon in bass, Typecast’s Melvin Macatiag in drums, April Morning Skies’ Aaron Corvera and Kenneth Aranza in guitars fronted by a former MYX VJ Juliann Savard.

They have produced a full-length studio album “Your Story To Tell” in June 2013 subsequent to their first EP released in February of the same year.

If you guys are interested, here are some of their whereabouts in the interwebs:
