Listening to: Gravity [Shawn McDonald]
Annnnd the late night posts return!
Saturday night, I was ironing a bunch of clothes for my family, and the parents were out shopping- it was just my brother and me at home and for me that usually means…LOUD MUSIC! BREAK FROM HEADPHONES! FREEDOM TO SING OUT LOUD! Besides, I needed that opportunity because it was a trying day; I found myself clutching at ways to feel better and singing along to my old college playlist did the trick, which included everything from anime soundtracks, to 90s/early 00s CCM of course.
This one tune came on and I had to stop my mindless, melodious attempts at catharsis and become mindful of the lyrics…this tune, was Gravity by Shawn McDonald.
Now, there are a lot of songs titled “Gravity” that I like; Christafari’s Gravity (bassline for DAYS), Detrick Haddon’s Gravity, John Mayer’s Gravity (JOHN MAYER’S GRAVITY!!!!!!!), and Sara Bareilles’ Gravity….just for starters LOL! But as it currently stands, the Gravity that I relate the most with, is Shawn McDonald’s. Read More
Listening to: Hard Love [NEEDTOBREATHE feat. Lauren Daigle (The Shack’s version)]
Existing and imaginary fanbase/readers, hello! Been a minute since I posted something and I am DETERMINED not to let this blog die due to laziness and/or my life not being intriguing enough to blog about.
So, in no way has this year been as ridiculously stressful as last year, thank God. I actually don’t know whether that is due to growing in faith from last year, or circumstances being a bit easier, but whatever it is, it’s been a significantly more decent year thus far. As far as I was concerned, things were settled a bit more and while nothing spectacular was going on, I was taking steps towards an actual future…underdeveloped baby steps, but steps nonetheless. I was so thankful for the direction things seemed to have been heading in this, the early part of the year— Read More
Listening to: Don’t Let it Go to Your Head [Fefe Dobson]
First of all, Happy New Year >_> LOL! First blog post of 2017 so I gotta get formalities out the way. Second of all, I’ve had this blog for about a year…I didn’t flesh it out as much as I probably could have but y’know…there were POSTS! I consider that an accomplishment. Third, this is the first post in the daylight hours I think!
And now for the obvious fact – tomorrow is Valentine’s Day. LOL Do we remember last year’s post? I can tell you my thoughts haven’t really changed (what, did you think I went all soft because I got a bf now? HAHAHAHAH!) Nah, lots of folk still have no clue what love is and mostly what I see are desperate attempts to either rid love of its value OR clutch after a cheap form of love for cycles of temporary satisfaction.
ANYWAY…I’ma share something different this year- my own slow journey to embracing
mush the concept of showing (and receiving) affection. Read More
Listening to: Let that be Enough [Switchfoot]
How bad is it that I only touched this blog because I wanted to get a new one in before the end of the year! And of course update you about whether anything ended up working out or not…
My last post back in May, told you all about how I was still facing my share of trials but I was seeing things happen that was only possible because of God, and I could recognize that. My last post also told you how I started a whole new type of journey, with a great guy, in the middle of all the chaos that was going on LOL. Update: the bf and I have been on that journey for 7 months going on 8 months…and it has really been something of an enjoyable but challenging obstacle course! Something new seems to pop up for us to deal with ever so often, even if it’s not centred around us in particular…nonetheless, we both see it as some serious life training and it’s good that we’re learning how to weather stuff together from early on. I’ve also discovered that I have the ability to be mushy (>_<); I had to work past cringing everytime it happened (still do occasionally), because NOT being mushy was my M.O. for years- but y’know, I’m getting comfortable with actually embracing ~*~*~*~*~emotions*~*~*~*~ bit by bit.
SO enough of that! My new adventures-in-romance are not going to be what this post is about…
Listening to: Tricky Angel [Natasha Bedingfield]
I willingly accept all beatings for being delinquent with my posts. I have no excuses. (._.)
The last time we met back in February, I was in one of the most grueling situations of my life; I had also said I’ll get back to you with a strong testimony as I believe that this will end out in something great that can be used to encourage others and build my own faith. So much has happened since then and honestly while everything hasn’t wrapped itself up in a neat little bow, things have happened that are testimonies in themselves! This week is very crucial to how this whole trying situation turns out, so I’m praying, trusting and expecting wonderful things that I can hopefully share the next time I post! BUT AS FOR NOW…I’m sharing something entirely different that managed to happen to me right smack-dab in the middle of these struggle couple of months…This will not be a very long post as this particular area isn’t my forte… Read More
Listening to: Atmosphere [tobyMac]
It’s terrible that soon after I begin a blog, I already slack off for about two weeks; my apologies >.< But that’s what this post is about…a bit of why I was absent for two weeks. Read More
Listening to: Like I Mean It [Stars Go Dim]
It’s February…more so it’s early February. Which means for the next couple days until the 14th hits, we’re gonna be seeing red… and white… and hearing: 1) all the sappiness associated with ~*~*~*love*~*~*~ 2) all the complaints about having to hear all the sappiness associated with *~*~*love*~*~*
But take one quick look around at how every type of relationship works now… Divorces that happen without remotely enough effort from either party? Check. Entitled kids who don’t think twice to disrespect and embarrass their parents? Check. Parents who ensure that they “treat themselves first” instead of putting their all into their children? Check. People who ditch friends who “aren’t on their level” without trying to understand the other person’s end? Check. What I’m trying to say here is, LOVE?!?!?! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA~~~~~ The world has no clue about what love is much less to even celebrate it right, Read More

Listening to: Pretty Lies [Veridia feat. Matty Mullins]
I don’t wear much makeup. The most you’ll get from me is the occasional lip color (red or plum) and eye-liner. The first time in my life I ever had a whole face of makeup done – foundation, concealer, smoky eye, blush…the entire enchilada, was for my college graduation photo; COLLEGE! I was 22 years old. My dad threw a mini fit when he saw the picture because he said it didn’t look like me. Pretty Lies is the name of the song I’m listening to now, but it is also what an acquaintance of mine said when reacting to my graduation photo:
“Amazing how makeup can make girls look like pretty lies for a couple of hours.” Read More
