Sometimes creating art and playing games make people younger. Do you agree?

Hihi.

Another day of mental break for me due to cancelled plans of fetching Sophia in Bulacan ++

I’ve watched BTS Trilogy ep III the wings tour final + 4 Gift Vods, all for four hours!!! 💖 I loved them all, I sing-dance-smile-laugh-cry-sobs-all feels while watching BTSxArmy!!( I FELL IN LOVE DEEPER AND AS IN WHOAAA !! THEY UPDATED THEIR TWITTER ACCOUNT TODAY WITH PICTURES AND WOWWWWW JUNGKOOK’S SELFIE VIDEO HUHU OMGGGG MISS YOU ALL SUPER!!!!! )

Then in the afternoon, I have my driving lessons with papa but after 40mins on the road, I remembered that I don’t have my driving license with me. WOW, self. My short-term memory is kinda rough these days.

After driving, I watched the sunset, so pretty and calming to the soul.

At evening, I made friendship letters which I really enjoyed doing 😊

Then around 10pm, Janet and I played Rules of Survival haha! After Janet left the game, Kam and I played as teammates too on the same game.

I was about to go to sleep around 12:30am but my sister called and I insisted to play L4d2 haaaaa whutttt a game night 😂😂😂

Thank you for the little things 💎

Lastly, I want to share these simple DIY envelopes that I made tonight:

Bon Voyage letter for Janelle 🌸

Congratulations for Iya’s new business venture 🌸

I appreciate personalized letters as much as I want to receive and give too. The sentimental touch in every letter is irreplaceable 💌 agree??

Goodnight, friends! 😊

There’s always something to be grateful for 🌷

Love,

Nj

Today’s simple joys: ♡ happy morning!

  • Slept for 10 hours! *feeling energized*
  • Woke up from having a lovely dream, I dreamt of BTS again and together with my bff, iya. It felt so real huhu. Got a chance to see them upclose like we’re coincidentally living in one big house. In my dream, I was so shy to approach them for taking a selfie or getting their autograph. I’m respecting their privacy and want them to enjoy their visit in Philippines. So I’m just kilig that I saw them and even make eye to eye with them esp. with Jungkook!! Though in reality I still didn’t see them huhu yet I’m still thankful that I can see them in my dreams for now. Hahaha what’s up to me of dreaming about BTS maybe I miss them so much? Haha anyway maybe because I really loved their songs, I played them almost everyday and I see their poster in my room.
  • Productive Wednesday, End of January already!!

Always be grateful 🌷

Love,

    802 – End of 2 0 1 7 ~

    Hi, my friend! I’m not 100% okay right now but I still want to create a meaningful post with my 2017 reflections. All of us have our own ups and downs this year, some decided to keep on having a good fight, while others had ended their dark life, and it’s a heart-wrenching fact. I don’t know if I can organize my thoughts here, well just bear with me.

    Let’s start.

    Honestly, I’ve been confused and undecided throughout 2017 but still I pushed myself to not renew my work contract in Saudi Arabia and packed all my things back to the Philippines due to infinite reasons. I’m not so sure with my future even if I have backup plans on my mind, plans A to Z. Oh my, quarter-life crisis, self, this is just the beginning. However, I started to realize that everything, everything is in God’s timetable. My unemployed self  for almost six months is still a blessing in disguise, most esp. until my grandmother’s last breath, I was able to serve and stay by her side. Oh I miss you lola Belen.. I’m so sorry for blaming people and hurting myself even more. I will continue to help myself to move on and to forgive. You will always have a special space in my heart.

    On the latter part, this year was full of  learning and self-love. I was able to overcome my laziness, doubts and depressed phase. Even though I didn’t travel much; didn’t received any awards or attended to many parties, events, and concerts; didn’t get my target scores in IELTS’ Speaking and Writing exam; didn’t get a job after my resignation; didn’t get a boyfriend (haha lol standards); didn’t helped my family much this year, all in all – I didn’t excelled much compare to others, (I hate comparing stuff and having trust issues esp. to people but why I kept on doing this to myself.), I have to accept these and must forgive my weak self. As I look back, I want to give myself a gentle pat on the back for doing just fine amidst of these matter. I’m not crying anymore because it’s useless to cry over a spilled milk, instead I just need to fill it up again. I need to be tougher and kinder to myself and continue what I had begun, my life goals and the Feast fellowship. I’m glad to find my creative self again this year and I’m grateful to join and serve at the Feast. So from all the learning and motivation I got from my sister, parents, friends (Sym, Iya, Janet, Grace, Cheryl, Janelle, Marissa, Owdy and Karla), Bro. Bo Sanchez, preachers, IELTS teachers, youtube vloggers (Jordan Clark, Kris Lumagui, AC, and Laureen Uy) and multi-talented artists (BTS, Abbey Sy, Arianne Serafico), I’m immensely in debt with all of you forever! ❤

    Before I sum it up, I also want to thank each and every one of you who visited and followed my blog for six years!!!! It’s never easy to blog everyday, but at least I tried for several months! Although I’m not so consistent (huhu) I failed to post daily for the last two months of 2017, but I didn’t fail you today.

    Life will always have a significant blend of happiness and sadness. It can be overwhelming and unbearable. I can’t guarantee if I can live long, only God knows. however I will always choose to fight my inner battles and appreciate bit by bit all the “simple joys” that makes me ultimately happy every day.

     

    Bye, 2017!

    Treat yourself and choose to love yourself more ❤

     

    HAPPY NEW YEAR, FRIENDS! To more simple joys and positive vibes in my gigantic universe ~

     

    Always be grateful 🌷

    Hi! Happy World Teacher’s Day! thank you, teachers and coaches that helped us unconditionally, for us to learn and to strive for progress in life. 
    Hmm.. What have I done today? 

    (My simple entry for InktoberPH)
    I’ve been sitting all day. I’m guilty again of watching k-drama in between of my study breaks, plus this doodle above. Hihi. I watched Age of Youth S2 Ep8-11 🙈 *i love this fam*. So, as I drew this doodle, I’m imagining myself that someday I will have an overlooking view of the skies, sunrise/sunset, and nature either mountains or sea in my room. Wow, I’m looking forward to it, self! 

    Now, continue studying and reading tips from IELTS Liz website (very helpful site, thank you Ms. Liz)

    Go, go, go! ❤
    ~ It’s so nice to make someone smile with a simple and sincere birthday greeting. Thank you and Happy Birthday again, Karen! ☺️ hihi. ~ simple joys ~ 
    *Even if I am really behind with BTS updates, I kept on streaming Love Yourself Album on Spotify, and voting for you guys!!!! Congrats, fam! I love you! Please eat well hihi ~

    Thank you for today, Lord!!! ❤
    Goodnight, universe!

    Always be grateful 🌷

    Wow, September is so near to bid goodbye to us, and its so fast huhu!!! I don’t know how to start my reflections for this month. Looking back, I can’t remember my expenses haha, but anyway I enjoyed a lot and I don’t know how to end my September. I’m quite anxious and excited for my birthday month which is days from now. I will set another goals again and I’m thinking to start tracking my outgoings.

    Today, I went outside of my cave to meet my sister’s boyfriend at Farmer’s Cubao. Even if I’m feeling lazy, I still arrived early at our meeting place. I kill time by watching Girl’s Generation 1979, episode 6,  and ate alone at KFC. When I saw Kim, he gave me the paper bag full of my sister’s gifts for us. It’s heavy but I carried it all the way to Santolan, near our home. My sister is very thoughtful and for that I’m really grateful to have her. I loved all the bags, short and chocolates she had bought for me ❤ ❤ Thank you, sis! ILY!!! ❤

    On the afternoon, I went at Niner Santolan to ask for slot reservation next month. The staff replied, still same day reservation, but I argued a little to him as regard to reserving a slot. Then, I checked their post on my phone, and his right.. okay I’m embarrassed. Haha. After, I stayed at Eco Earth Cafe to study. I bought Cookies and cream frappe, finished watching episode 6, and then started to complete my essay.

    On the evening, I spent at home watching GirlBoss series which I finished, and then started watching first two episodes of Temperature of Love (oops k-drama). And, of course, scrolled for some updates of BTS hihi. It’s been a week that I’m still streaming on Spotify and Youtube! I really loved their kind of music, their upbeat songs gave me good vibes all day. hihi so happy that they made it on Billboard Top 100 at #5 spot!!!!!!!!!!!! Congrats!!!! And also, they won at MBC show champion yesterday night! ARMYS are proud of you, always. ❤

     

    Goodnight, friends!

     

    Always be grateful 🌷

    English Translation

    (source: DNA Lyrics)

    [Verse 1: V]
    At first sight, I could recognize you
    As if we were calling for each other
    The DNA in my blood vessels tell me
    That it’s you I was looking all over for

    [Verse 2: J-Hope, Rap Monster]
    Our meeting is like a mathematical formula
    Commandments of religion, providence of the universe;
    The evidence of destiny given to me
    You’re the source of my dream
    Take it, take it
    My hand reaching out to you is my chosen fate

    [Pre-Chorus: Jungkook, Jin]
    Don’t worry, love
    None of this is a coincidence
    We’re totally different, baby
    Because we’re the two who found our destiny

    [Chorus: Jimin]
    From the day of the universe’s creation and beyond
    Through the infinite centuries and beyond
    In the previous life and maybe the next too
    We’re eternally together

    [Hook: Jungkook]
    None of this is a coincidence
    Because we’re the two who found our destiny
    DNA

    [Verse 3: Suga, Rap Monster]
    I want it this love I want it real love
    I only focus on you
    You steer me a little harder
    The DNA of the genesis wants you
    This is inevitable, I love us
    We are the only true lovers

    [Verse 4: Suga, Jimin, Jungkook]
    Every time I see her, I freak out
    Surprisingly, I keep gasping and it’s weird, maybe
    This is the emotion they call love
    Because from the very beginning, my heart runs to you

    [Pre-Chorus: Jin]
    Don’t worry, love
    None of this is a coincidence
    We’re totally different, baby
    Because we’re the two who found our destiny

    [Chorus: Jungkook]
    From the day of the universe’s creation and beyond
    Through the infinite centuries and beyond
    In the previous life and maybe the next too
    We’re eternally together

    [Hook: Jimin, Jungkook]
    None of this is a coincidence
    Because we’re the two who found our destiny
    DNA

    [Bridge: V, Jin, Jungkook, Jimin]
    Don’t look back
    Because we’re the two who found our destiny
    Don’t regret it, baby
    Because we’re forever
    Forever
    Forever
    Forever
    Forever
    We are together

    [Pre-Chorus: Jimin, Jungkook]
    Don’t worry, love
    None of this is a coincidence
    We’re totally different, baby
    Because we’re the two who found our destiny

    [Outro: J-Hope, Jungkook]
    La la la la la
    La la la la la
    Because it’s not a coincidence
    La la la la la
    La la la la la
    Because it’s not a coincidence
    DNA

     

    ~ So much love for this! BTS and all the creative and loving team behind them, THANK YOU! YOU’RE ALL UNDOUBTEDLY AMAZINGGGGGGGG!!!!!!
