The Sunday Currently | 10

Oh gosh! It's been a long time since I've last posted a Sunday Currently post! I have been so busy with my winter semester, it's been hella crazy, tiring and exhausting. I couldn't remember when was the last time I posted here. I wasn't able to reply to comments as well. Sorry! I've got 2 more weeks left of school and I'm still looking for a summer job because I won't be able to afford my summer semester ㅠㅠ. Anyways, I have some time to do a post, so here it is.

The Sunday Currently | 10

Reading Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli

Writing this post + my importing final exam review notes 

Listening Nuest's Hello!! I can't believe this song has been released years ago. I remember this was my bop when I was in high school. I was watching PD 101 season 2 and they played it during Nues't's introduction and I can't believe I forgot about it. It's now on repeat.

Smelling that Glade thing you plug on the power socket and it makes the room smells good lol

Wishing for the semester to end well.

Hoping the two-toned lip tint I ordered to arrive faster!!! 

Wearing a jeggings + my H&M striped top

Loving scrolling through Instagram that posts bullet journal photos!! I've been so obsessed with them lately

Wanting to buy cute school supplies for my bullet journalling obsession 

Needing a job lol. How long have I've been saying this?

Feeling sick. Boo. I caught a cold a few days ago.

Clicking through my email and deleting unnecessary spam mails.  

Yey. Now I should be back to studying. I still have 2 more big assignments left for the semester OTL.

Open Letter | Best Friend

I've been contemplating whether I should start an open letter series on this blog. I don't know how long I will be active on blogger and it would be nice to have something to look and think woah was I like that during my younger days. Something to ponder when I get older you know. So for my first open letter series, I introduce you to an open letter to my former best friend.

Time sure does fly. 10 years. 

It's been 10 freaking long years. How the heck have you been? I don't really know where, when and why our relationship started falling apart. I mean, I did have some assumptions and ideas after our encounter at school as to why. I know change is inevitable but I didn't think that would happen to us. But it did. Must have been a puberty thing, haha. You were growing into the man that I have always knew you were going to be. You have always been smart and you know what you've always wanted to be in life. 

I guess our views in life just didn't seem to match up. It's such a bummer that we drifted apart. When I first came to Canada, my world seemed so terrifying. Learning a new language that I didn't know, new environments and new friends seemed to terrify the shit out of me. I was barely 12. I still remember that first-time jitters that I felt as the principal accompanied me to the classroom. And there you were. You were smiling and everything and we hit it off right away! Everyone would be jealous of our friendship. Every lunch time, you would go to the corner store and buy me these unusual looking candies that I have never seen in my life. And everyone would keep begging me to give them. sigh. I miss the elementary life. Remember when we went to Science Centre? I don't want to get into the details of what we did there but I'm sure you remember it vividly because I do. I won first place there out of all the Catholic schools who entered the competition.

High school came. And everything just seemed to be changing around me. Even you. I saw you that day with a girl. To this day, I could still make up what that girl's face looked like. She gave me that look. You know that "why are you friends with her" look. Up to this day, I don't know if she was your girlfriend at the time. We just stopped talking after that. And I hate myself for it. I wonder if you feel the same as well.

I just want to let you know that even after all these years, I would still want to be your best friend in a heartbeat. Well, that is if you ever ask me again or if we ever meet again. I don't even know if you still live in the same address or if you're still in contact with our group of friends or if you still love that candy you always buy at the corner store near school. I'll always be here for you even if you're not.

Book Goals in 2017

Hi, here again for another post. Why do I keep finding myself posting in the middle of the night. It's currently 2:09 in the morning. Anyways, I'm trying to keep my blog alive. Recently, I've decided I want to read more books in 2017. One of the reason is because of Seventeen's Wonwoo. One of his 2017 goals is to read 50 books a year. If he can read that much despite his hectic schedule, then what is stoping me? Another reason is that one of my friend, Andrea, has inspired me to start reading again. She probably doesn't even know that and probably will never see this post but if you ever do, hi! my little soft! 

Now, I've read a lot of books in the past, not that many compared to other people who are way into reading, but just enough for me to say a lot. But like I said, recently, I've wanted to read more books.
I've only ever started getting into books when I got to Canada. The first book I've ever laid my hands on was The Outsiders by S.E Hinton . It was a mandatory reading for all the grade 7s. We even had to watch the movie. To be honest, I don't remember what the book was about. It was just very memorable as it was the first book that was given to me on my first day of school.

The book that I will never forget is The Giver by Lois Lowry. Again, it was also a mandatory reading, for grade 8s this time. The story was something I've never even heard of. The setting of the book was so vivid into my mind, it made me think like I was actually in the story itself. Everytime I go into a bookstore and see The Giver, I always smile and think, Aaah this is THE book. I really love it. I recommend for everybody to give it a try!

I've finished the very first book of my 2017 book goal yesterday. It's called Walking on Water by Richard Paul Evans. It was very eye opening and it tugged at my heartstring. Not gonna lie, it really did make me shed a tear here and there. Gotta give it up to Mr. Evans. I've read another of his work and felt the same thing.

I went to the library earlier with my sisters to borrow more books that Andrea had posted on her Twitter thread. I'm impressed with her book thread as I realized we are kind into the same genre. We also love poetry. Here are the books that I've borrowed and on my reading list:

David Levithan - Everyday
David Levithan - Every You, Every Me
David Levithan - The Realm of Possibility
David Levithan - Love is the Higher Law
David Levithan - Are We There Yet?
Richard Paul Evans - Last December
Tamara Ireland Stone - Time Between Us

Ah! Now that I think about it, I should go and make a series about book reviews. Let's see how that goes. Good luck and happy reading to me! Also, if you have any book recommendations to share, please feel free to comment down below! I love reading books that people recommend. It's like peeking into a tiny part of their life.

Happy 2017!

I had a Christmas post saved in my drafts but it had already past so I guess I'll delete that and instead write this post. Anyways, although this is very late, I wish all the readers of this blog a Happy New Year! I hope happiness, luck and success only comes your way this 2017. I haven't done a lot of things last year and I wasn't proud of the things I did last year.

I am hoping 2017 treats me a little better this time. I need to make better decisions this year. I think the only sole reason why 2016 was meh was because of all the choices I've made. And I'm here to change that! I've even wrote a new years resolution that I really want to accomplish. I don't know what else to talk about so here is my little new years resolution.

- Work out
- Study hard
- Get all A+s on all my Jan 2016 subjects
- Continue learning/playing the guitar
- Get back on stretching 
- Get back on doing my skin care routine
- Stop procrastinating or at least lessen it. 

I used to make my resolutions every year but for some reason I can never follow it. Hope all of you guys are able to follow your own new years resolution as well! I believe the reason why people fail to follow their resolution is because they set up such a high standards on their list. Start from the basic and ask yourself if you are capable of doing it. Then the rest will follow. You will eventually be able to successfully do it!
