9 Perks of Having Your Own Place

What were your daydreams mostly about when you were a kid? Mine's always about growing up fast and living on my own with no one telling me what and what not to do. That's why I loved playing house (bahay-bahayan) with my playmates and cousins back then. And it's not because I get to have fake husband and kids, but because I've always loved the idea of having my own house where I can be the boss of everything. It's not that I hated my life though, that I wanted so bad to break away and escape. In fact, I was a very lucky kid. I guess I was just way too excited to be a big girl living in a big world!

Two Cents Tuesday: Taylor Swift's Wildest Dreams Music Video

Hey guys! Welcome to my first ever post for my blog series I decided to call Two Cents Tuesday. If the title hasn’t made it obvious yet, it’s going to be that day of the week when I can give my two cents on a trending topic/s or issue/s that I have something to say about.

I can do that on Facebook or Twitter actually but I just don’t wanna flood my friends’ newsfeed of my opinions on everything so I thought it’s best I bottle everything up inside for a couple of days first and just write about all of them in one blog post and turn it into a weekly commentary thing!

This is going to be fun!

So today, I'm going to talk fangirl about Taylor Swift's music video for Wildest Dreams!

Have you guys seen it?

I'm a Swiftie. Not going to deny it. Not even going to be ashamed of it. So it's only right I express what I feel about the just-released-at-the-VMAs music video for her Lana Del Rey-ish track from the 1989 album, Wildest Dreams.

I loved everything about it - from the setting, location, costumes, and basically the whole story. And it could've been perfect only if she wasn't wearing that wig. Yes, THAT WIG.

So I wondered, is it just me and my distorted view of Taylor's black hair sitting weirdly on her head? Or is there really something wrong with her fake black hair?

I Googled and found out I'm not the only one who felt distracted/bothered by the awkward thing on Tay-Tay's head! There were many of us! In fact, even BuzzFeed knew we have to talk about Taylor's wig. They even called it "most-terrible-wig-in-modern-music-video-history" LOL


Seeing other people feel just as bothered as I am about the wig made me feel better. Haha!

But then again, it's just a wig. And even if it bothers me, I am willing to let it go because the last part of the video was actually more than enough to make up for the wig problem.

Just when you thought she's just all about the pretty places, pretty faces, pretty clothes, and pretty boys, she goes to prove shes's so much more than that by showing how she cares for animals.

Aww, sorry 'bout the wig, Taylor. I love you still!

On Rebranding My Blog

Something funny happened last week. I moved to WordPress.com and tried to be a serious blogger again. But I didn't enjoy it because I never got the freedom to fully customize the whole thing the way I want to and I thought I was ready for how much it's going to cost but as it turned out, I'm not. I regret the decision immediately, packed my stuff, and left.

Pinto Art Museum, An Artsy Fartsy Sundate

What was supposed to be a typical movie/foodtrip sundate with the boyfriend turned into an unexpected artsy farsty rainy Sunday afternoon rendezvous at the Pinto Art Museum. We were supposed to watch a movie but ditched the plan when there were only 4 movies showing on Robinson's cinemas that day and we didn't feel like watching three of them. Inside Out seemed like a good idea but seeing ALL those kids lined up outside and just thinking about how noisy it's going to be inside during the movie made me think twice. Nope, not a good idea.

The Sunday Currently Vol. I

I find it funny how things have completely turned around for me after only three months of being homebased. When I still had a regular job, well, not that regular because of the night shift, Sundays were always bittersweet because it meant tomorrows's Monday - time to wish it was Friday already. You know you're miserable when you spend all five days of the week just wishing for the weekend instead of just enjoying every damn day you are alive and I'm glad I was able to break away from that sad sad routine.
