I have to do this! Yes folks I am still alive in case you are wondering. How’s everyone? (late post based on BDJ planner)
2-6: I filed a vacation leave for the Opening Night of Eiga Sai. They served unlimited sushi and wine catered by Akira. Too bad I did not won any Shue Uemura raffle. The opening film was starred by my ever crush Kenichi Matsuyama. It’s a pretty film and I just love how it captured the country life.
I have a festival pass at Virgin Labfest. Every year watching this unadulterated plays makes me sad because I really want to be theater actress. It was frustrating but nonetheless there are dreams that are not meant to come true. Or maybe not now but soon. Let’s see.
9:I am crying because of toothache. hahahaha
11:I finished the book Audition. It has a cult following. I like the book better than the film. As always.
16: We have accomadation at Traders Hotel because of Typhoon Glenda but I braved the storm and strong winds because I don’t want to deal with my cruel officemates.
17: Subscribed at BDJBOX
19-25: I love Orphan Black! Don’t you? Can’t wait for Season 3.
28: People will try to bring you down and hurt you but you need to rise no matter what.
3: Cinemalaya 2014. Attended 3 Gala Premiers and free food again. Hahaha
Suffered from Vertigo while watching the 2nd film. Awful.
4: 60th Birthday of Mama. We had a simple celebration.
10: Ace Water Spa with the whole family.
12: Caution: I need anger management program. The world is filled with so much hatred. Don’t let that seep into your life.
14: Mama went to USA for vacation for 5 months.
15: Office gossip and escalations. Only dead fish swim with the current. Go against the flow.
22: I’m in! TESDA for Spanish language. Yey!
29: Career profiling at Tesda.
30: Top- Blue Rating at work
1: First day of Spanish class
5-7: Laguna mode: UP elbi binge eating and food trip with mi amore.
14: VIP Pass at Beauty Camp of bdjbox.
20: Book Fair: But I splurged on Watsons sale. lolz
28: Gaddiel’s 6th month
30: Month end with my love
For the third quarter of this year I was so busy. Work, school, love life and some social events on the side. But I am definetely happy with the turn of events outside work. But speaking of work it was too rubbish and exhausting but it will soon end. I really enjoy studying Spanish language even though the grammar was so hard and I still have a lot of things to learn and I also need confidence in speaking it. For 5 weeks I was sleeping 3-4 hours a day because I need to go to class after work. It was free btw. I actually forgot to take care of my body and because of that I am suffering.
I wish I have new analogue photos to post. Bummer. My go-to developing lab was on hiatus because of restoration whatnot that’s why I am also on hiatus. lol ( that’s a lame excuse btw )
For the last quarter I hope that I can improve my makeup skills and start my beauty and health blog. I also hope that I will take care of my health like eating right and engaging in some group exercise. Lastly, I want to have the courage to speak Spanish in everyday life.
It was hard to admit how clumsy and stupid I was last time regarding online shopping. I should have known better. To remember this event I will just write the things that I could have bought with the money I’ve lost. This was a self-penance act of sort. Sometimes I bully myself.

My old running shoes are still okay but it is wearing out already. It was not because I run on a daily basis but because I keep it inside the locker too often. Blame the weather and my lazy ass. A nice shoes will inspire me perhaps.
More more more Make up
No explanation needed. Girl thing.
I could have bought book collection instead. I have so many books that I want to buy. But I am kind of relying on ebooks these days. But nothing beats the real deal.
SLR or RF Camera
Maybe instax is not really for me. I should have bought this instead. Grrr
Cinemalaya Festival Pass
I have been dreaming of a festival pass for this event too save time lining up. I wish I am still a student to enjoy the perks of a discounted price.
That’s all I can think for now. I will be careful next time. I will not give up on film photography because of this. I will move forward.
Lastly, here are the details of my scammer.

(And again this was based on my Belle De Jour Power Planner)
01: 25TH BIRTHDAY. I am now a silver baby. No fancy party or whatnot just dinner with the family. I am just so grateful for having wonderful people around me.
04: I lost my wallet. I’m just that clumsy.
05: I walked from home after night shift duty. That’s my exercise. MOA Pasay to Malate. I do this 3 to 4 times a week.
06: I finally finished Elementary Season 1
08: I applied againd for Spanish at Tesda for 2nd time around. They have long list of applicants. :(
13: Hot Air Balloon Festival with Sabs and Santi. It was short trip but fun.
14-20: Mi amore was confined again because of Asthma. It’s a crazy holy week. After work I stayed at hospital and skip my exercise routine. I was just so drained. After discharge at the hospital I spent quality time with “le family”. They just love me I guess.
21: 7th Birthday of Gabby. No fancy birthday party because of the the newborn baby.
22-24: Absent because of vertigo. Sabs accompanied me at Healthway for checkup but we still had time for makeup shopping.
25: I went to Makati Med for “real” check up. Diagnosis: I am pre-diabetic. My PCOS is getting worse and I have myoma. That explains my sudden bouts of pain. It was so depressing. I still manage to go to work that night.
26: It was our 26th month together. I just got home from work and then suddenly our neighborhood was on fire. I was so shocked and I am in panic mode. I screamed and cried. The fire did not reach our house but 12 houses were burned. I can’t sleep that night. Is it post-traumatic syndrome?
30: I was in so much pain again.
01: I rushed myself to ER. I thought it was appendicitis but it was just a gyne case.
03: Digiprint delivery. It made me happy. I wish I can shoot more but I am too sick.
04: Movie Marathon
05: Applied for unified id of SSS.
07: A friend of mine visited me before she left again to work in Saudi. Thank God I made a decision not to be a nurse anymore.
12: Post Mother’s Celebration. I love my mom so much.
15: We celebrated an officemate’s birthay at SNR. The best cheese pizza ever.
16: I detox by drinking infused lemon water. I realize that I am a better person because I choose my battles. I know when to give up and fight.
18: Mi amore’s advance birthday party. After 7 years I had a taste of Red Horse beer again. I am not a beer person. I prefer soju, tequila or vodka but I rarely drink.
23: I was sent home after four hours of working. I rushed again to ER. This time it was gastroenteritis. Then milover rushed to accompany me. And their house was robbed. I felt guilty but I know it’s not my fault.
28: There was too much oppression and office politics at work. I don’t know how to fight anymore. My officemate friends were struggling. I think all my sickness boils down to my hazardous work.
02: Man from the Stars. I love this kind of kilig. I felt like a teenager.
06: I lost 6 kilos in a month. It was an achievement. I hope that this is the beginning of a new me. I am finally getting better and healthier.
08: Taco Sunday with milove. I thank the universe that we met and stayed together even though it was a harsh and complicated world.
15: French Film Festival was sold out. Thank heavens for the intarwebss. I downloaded Mood Indigo instead. My two favorite films are Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Amelie. A movie with Gondry and Audrey Tatou makes my heart skipped a beat. It was magical.
18: I was scammed. I was so stupid and careless. I bought instax online and lo and behold it never came. I reported it to olx.ph. They can only do so much. I just have to give up and move on and of course be wiser next time. Someone bashed me because I should just give up analogue and shift to digital. No offense but that was so out of line. We need to respect each others hobbies.
22: Gaddiel’s Christening. It was nice to spend time with family and relatives. After that I went to a mini reunion with my Accelerated Class in Elementary. After 14 years we met but it felt like yesterday. Time flies and I feel like I have not changed that much.
23: I bled too much after 10 months. It was too painful to bear. I read that red wine has analgesic effects. It was helpful but not that much. I tried Green books because of the hype. It was okay.
29: Shopping and quality time with Mother. We don’t do this often because I have lame excuses but I know she likes it. I wish I can spend more time with her.
30: Off to meet mi amore. I’m excited for July. A lot of events. Life is a series of film festivals. I hope I have time and healthy body to shoot again too.
It was not that eventful second quarter. I was always depressed and sick. Hopefully it will be better.
