I was supposed to do a Sunday Currently for the New Year’s Eve because it fell on a Sunday, but I ended up just laying on my bed watching bunch of movies on Netflix. My family and I had a 2-week travel in Australia for the holiday and I was dead tired coming back home. Year 2017 has been amazing overall with few struggles along the way like most people do experience in their lives. For me, one of which, is to diligently write and regularly post on my blog! 🙁 However, considering that the reason behind such failure is because I enrolled for my Masters in Law at San Beda College were I need to travel to/from Manila once or twice a month (while simultaneously having a full time job and two part-time works). Netflix and travels abroad were the other causes of my inactiveness to post blogs.
But for year 2018, one of my personal goals is to revive this blog site for the nth time! Writing is one of my passions in life and this is one way of expressing myself and living up to my motto in life, i.e. to inspire without reason.
So here it goes…
Reading I have around 5 books that I either borrowed or bought and I haven’t managed to read any of them. Honestly, I listened to one audiobook (Ready Player One) last year and that was it! I want to go back to my old habit of reading at least one book a week and that is one of my goals for 2018.
Writing This first blog post for 2018.
Listening ‘I Did Something Bad’ by Taylor Swift. Honestly, I love all the songs in TS new album, Reputation. She does not disappoint.
Thinking of work starting tomorrow. 🙁 I have lots of pending deadlines, which I need to finish by the end of the week.
Smelling Jo Malone’s Peony and Blush Suede. My new fave scent.
Wishing for the incessant rain to stop. Philippines has been struck with 3 typhoons this month of December 2017 where there were heavy flooding and landslides.
Hoping to accomplish my 2018 goals I set unlike last year’s goals that I sadly failed to achieve.
Wearing Plain blue green shirt (from Giordano) and Elephant-printed pyjama, which my Dad bought from Bangkok, Thailand.
Loving Cadbury’s Marvellous Creations Jelly Popping Candy Beanies that I bought from Sydney and unfortunately unavailable in our country.
Wanting my last month’s salary and benefits to be credited to my account ASAP. I just found out a day before leaving for my Australia trip that I need to submit a certification of my return to work after my travel abroad to our HR, otherwise my salary will be withheld. Sad to say, it has not been credited yet due to the holidays.
Needing winter clothes for my upcoming trip to Korea in a few months.
Feeling blessed. No words could sum up how grateful I feel for all the wonderful blessings I received throughout my entire life!
Clicking YNAB (You Need A Budget). I really need to control myself from impulsive shopping spree and settle all my outstanding credit card balances. The struggle is real!
Watching ‘The Sinner’ series on Netflix starring Jessica Biel.
