Btw, since I had free time last Saturday night I updated my bookshelf page. Added more books I’ve read (tho I still I feel I’m missing something) and some of the books I’ve been dying to read. I have more! But I was too tired to add them. Heee. If you wanna check em out, here http://lemadijane.tumblr.com/bookreads
I have been waiting for this album for months and now that it’s here it didn’t disappoint. Its just flawless. All the songs are amazing and Ariana’s voice is just God its inhuman. She’s amazing. Love all the songs like I did the first album.
Here’s the tracklist:
2. Problem (feat. Iggy Azalea)
3. One Last Time
4. Why Try
5. Break Free (feat. Zedd)
6. Best Mistake (feat. Big Sean)
7. Be My Baby (feat. Cashmere Cat)
8. Break Your Heart Right Back (feat. Childish Gambino)
9. Love Me Harder (feat. The Weekend)
10. Just A Little Bit Of Your Heart
11. Hands on Me (feat. A$AP Ferg)
12. My Everything
Bonus Tracks (Deluxe)
13. Bang Bang (with Jessie J & Nicki Minaj)
14. Only 1
15. You Don’t Know Me
Personal faves would be One Last Time, Break Your Heart Right Back, Just A Little Bit Of Your Heart and My Everything. Also love one of the bonus tracks “You Don’t Know Me”. They’re all amazing, and the album is really worth listening. As always, I put my Ariana Grande music when I’m working because its keeps me alive and energized. Must listen! If you haven’t go ahead, you’ll totes love it. Promise.
Very quick and short review (or just thoughts you know) of the last 9 books I’ve read.
Where She Went by Gayle Forman (5/5)
TEARS. FEELS. EVERYTHING. This book had made me cry on every chapter and I just had so much feels for Adam and Mia. I really love it when boys tell the story I’m just ajgsafjskahj feeling everything for Adam. God.
The Giver by Lois Lowry (4/5)
A really great Dystopian. I liked the concept of this community, really. Although, a life without colors and emotions? Damn. Loved how it was told in a very simple manner, words are just light unlike other novels. Its also very short, which made me sad because I want to find out where Jonas went and what happened gee
Anna and The French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins (4.5/5)
I loved this book! This book actually made me intrested in other Romance books. I’ve been reading a lot of Romance since this and I’m just aghsagfjs. Its really a good story and I loved how it took me to Paris. I’ve always wondered how it looked like, and the book gave me that. Plus, Ettiene is by far the most adorable human being ever.
What Happened To Goodbye by Sarah Dessen (4/5)
Really nice story as well. This is my first Sarah Dessen, and it didn’t disappoint. Loved McLean’s story and I had a glimpse of how someone goes through all these pretend persona and how hard it was to live so many lives. It was so cool how the neighborhood actually changed him and Miles is really cute don’t ya think? Hee x
Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell (5/5)
If I could give it a 6 or a 1000 I will. This book is AMAZING. I loved the 80’s vibe and just everything about it. The characters. The plot. Eleanor’s story. Park’s family. Rowell writes the best “IS-THIS-REALLY-HOW-THIS-ENDS” ending and I’m not entirely sure if I like it or not but God this story made me laugh and cry at the same time I don’t even know how that was possible. All I wish for in life is that a sequel should be written is that too much, Rainbow Rowell?
We Were Liars by E. Lockhart (4/5)
Tbh I was bored at the beginning, some things weren’t making sense. It actually took me sometime to finish this because of the lame start, but as the story progresses it became more interesting and this has by far the BIGGEST PLOT TWIST EVER. I was not expecting THAT AT ALL. So kudos to E. Lockhart. I screamed and went ballistic and all that upon reaching the plot twist. “THAT DID NOT JUST HAPPEN.” was all I could muster.
Lola and The Boy Next Door (4/5)
Another Steph Perkins, and tbh I’m enjoying her novels. They’re just light and it makes me feel giddy, happy and just you know, in love. I’ve noticed her boys are really adorable, not the perfect muscular jock popular kind of boys but the geekish cute awkward adorable boys. Ettiene and Cricket. NEED I SAY MORE?
Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover (5/5)
Colleen Hoover is still QUEEN of everything. God, this book is AMAZING. I love Tate’s personality, she’s so strong. And the fact that Miles makes her feel like water is just ajdhsafk. And Miles, God MILES FUCKING ARCHER is so unbelievable HOT and just asafhaksjhfks. His past is so painful, I love/hate how Colleen Hover makes me feel so much emotions, I can’t even fathom every bit of it. I love Miles. God. And the part where he asked her to move in with him. BEST PART EVER.
Looking for Alaska (4.5/5)
This book made me ponder about stuff I’m not used to pondering about, tbh. I think the last part was great, the letter gave me goosies. John Green is really a genius. I loved every character in this book. Even the EAGLE. I’m telling you. I might be a bit sad that I didn’t find out what happened to Alaska, but fuck it. As what Pudge said, things fall apart. It happens.
Sorry for the spoilers and all. Hahaha. I’m very bad at this. If you wanna know more about them, please check Goodreads! x
I’m at home all day. I woke up to an announcement that classes on all levels are already suspended. I’m all like:
Turns out I have another rest day-ish. Haha. I have stuff to do that’s work related, but very minimal. Supposedly, my classes will have their midterm exam tomorrow, but since there’s no classes, and apparently, no one would be at the school today, I won’t be able to have my exam signed and photocopied. So, I just decided to move it on Thursday. I just worked on my lesson for tomorrow, since we’ll just have a discussion instead of the exam. I also painted boxes and I’m letting them dry for the rest of the day. So far, that’s all my work related shiznit and I’m not free to sleep read and eat and just be lazy (which is what I’m bout to do after blogging)
Hooo I missed Tumblr. x
helloimchels: Thanks for the suggestion last night! Kakabasa ko lang. I will try that. Thank you so much xx
It’s been a very long day. God, the rain has been pouring since morning non stop. Battled through the rain this morning with Shiela by going out to pick up payments and buy supplies. After that, we went to Mini Stop to have lunch. Their rice toppers is now my current food obsession. The pork barbecue thingo is just heavenly. Damn. And even if it was cold as shit, we had chillz. I had the chocolate flavor and Shi had the coffee one, simply because there wasn’t any chocolate left. Too bad for her.
When we got home, we worked on Shi’s items to be printed. She’ll be giving out pins and bookmarks to her top students this grading period. So we did layouts of customized designs chosen by her lucky students. But then in the middle of working, I suddenly felt dizzy so I decided to take a nap. When I woke up, another friend of mine, Timothy, was already here. I just remembered he asked if he could come because he needed help for the invitations and certificates of the event he was moderating at his school. When I felt better, I got up and did the layouts for him. Then I had the exam for this week printed and made visual aids. It was announced that classes are already suspended for elementary and high school. I kind of think ours would be suspended as well, but I made my visuals anyway. Plus, class or no class I still have to go to school because I have to get my exams signed by the dean and have them photocopied. So much to do!
I’m so tired after everything today so I’m just here on my bed, watching random stuff eating chips and just relaxing before another stressful week comes my way.
**I was gonna include photos but turns out my memory card got corrupted and I lost all of my photos. I mean ALL. Like every photo. I’m crying rn T____T
I can’t believe I’ll be turning 21 in 30 days. God, I feel like I just turned 20. Now, I’ll be 21. Everything is just happening so fast lol. I still not feeling the 21 vibe tho, maybe when October comes I will. My students always ask me what my age is, and I answer them “you guess”. And then they’ll start saying 24? 25? 30? God, do I look like 30? Hahaha. I just laugh. Tbh, some of my students are older than me. They will never know. They will never know.
So. I haven’t been blogging for quite some time now. Juggling business and work has been consuming most of my time, and I haven’t had the energy to compose a long post, until now. But I miss blogging, really.
i. Sneaky faculty selfie. I now work as an English Instructor in a University around our place. It’s just near, around 10 minutes travel and its “part time” but tbh, I have a full load so I don’t really think I can consider it part time hahaha.
ii. Although life may be a lot stressful, I’m still happy because I have the BEST stress relievers ever. I’m talking about my dear friends whom I spend my Saturday evenings with. We sing at videokes and then eat and talk and laugh. Just relieving stress! I look forward for Saturdays because these people are just the best ever.
iii. As I’ve mentioned, still working on the shop. We’ve got quite a number of orders lately which was all stressful + fun. I work Mondays to Thursdays and then work on the shop Fridays until Sundays. #BusyLife
iv & v. On my vacant time at school or at home, I still read. Its something I don’t think I would get tired of or would slip my busy schedule ever. I tried taking a selfie with my “shelf” but I failed. Hahaha.
vi. Another thing that had been keeping me busy is one of my life goals, learning an instrument. I have been learning how to play the keyboard for two weeks now. I still suck, but I think its far better than not knowing anything about it at all. I did a cover here of an Ariana Grande song that I learned using a Youtube tutorial. Thank God for Youtube.
Life’s still busy, I’m currently working on exams while writing this. Hihi. I will try to write queued posts. I so hate myself for not keeping up with the blog and my daily post themes. But I will try now. *fingers crossed*
This feels #lemadijane ❤️❤️❤️
Hahahaha. Found ya through instagram lol. Ya never told me you have tumblr na. How dare you. Hahaha.
Today’s book haul. I wasn’t planning on buying We Were Liars today, I was kind of reserving it for next week. But I saw that there were only 2 copies left, so I was like “Damn it, I’m going to buy you now.” Lol. I’m still not done reading The Giver and my to-be-read list is just going on and on. And the books-I-want-to-buy list is going on forever. I cry lol
PS: The K-Zone was for my brother. He looooves Adventure Time. And this month’s episode has a free AT poster. He freaked, but got upset immediately, seeing that at the back of the AT poster was a poster of Regular Show. He also loves that show. Now he has a dilemma. Very great sisterly work I did there. Haha.
The past week has gone by like a blur and everything was just so busy. To be honest, I’m like really super stressed with the amount of orders we had this week. Don’t get me wrong, I am super duper beyond thankful of everything. Its just that I am just human and I get tired and stressed, especially when people pressure me. Hey, I just do these myself, please be gentle. Ha ha. So glad my brothers helped me out with pick ups. I don’t think I could have brought 20 jackets all on my own. I would die.
So finally, I get to have my rest this Saturday afternoon until night which I decided to spend with my girls out. First we sang at the karaoke, to relieve stress. But then, we got upset that the other mic isn’t working, meaning we only get to use one and that would be a tragedy because we sing mostly duets. Yeah, we were pretty upset at first but we decided to just make the most of it and sing our hearts out and just go crazy. We even spotted this cute guy and we crushed on him like the entire time (and pretty much until we’re all home we still talked about him haha)
Photos stolen from my bestie’s PS vita lels. You can see that its really very late because Jollibee is almost closing time and the table and chairs are already being stacked.
The night kind of almost got ruined but we decided to not let it get in to us. We still joked when we were boarding the jeepney on the way home. I love these girls, they never fail to relieve my stress every time. x
We have spent.. Crayons and pencils.. Learning out ABC. Hahaha. I’m tryina joke lol. Well, the past days have been crazy busy, I think this might have been one of the busiest weeks I’ve had ever. Monday was full on work day, Tuesday was pick up and meet up day. Yesterday was journey to PRC day. And today, well today I got a bit of rest during the afternoon, but I also went back to work by 4.
So as I’ve said Tuesday, I picked up payments, picked up hoodies from the supplier, and had them printed. I also met a customer with Shiela and then we went window shopping for gadgets. Ha ha. Really want to buy a tab. *sigh*
Then yesterday I went to PRC, alone. Again, ALONE. I am very proud of myself that for the first time I went to PRC by myself and I didn’t get lost or get robbed or anything lol. At first I was really scared that I might get lost, because I’m not sure I remember that landmark where my brother and I gets out of the fx. Good thing I got a seat near the driver and I ask him to drop me off there. He was really nice. The walk along recto was excruciating, not because there’s too many people or anything, it was because my shoes were killing me. I don’t really know why I bought those shoes. They make my feet hurt like hell. I stopped by this lady who sells slippers and I bought one. Phew. The actual process on PRC was really fast. I think I only stayed for like 10 minutes. I read a couple of pages of the book I brought. And then, tadah! I now have my license!! *happy dance*
I look really crappy on my picture haha. This was taken when I was 3rd year college for my pre-board examination. I decided to use the same photo for my board examination since I got a couple of extras. Little did I know this will be the photo recorded on their database, and thus it appears on everything - I mean EVERY thing - every document, etc I get from PRC. So just a little tip, if you’re going to take the exam SEND YOUR BEST PICTURE. Put on some make up, get a good night’s sleep the night before. Ha ha ha.
Well that’s it. How have you been? :)
So today was really really busy. When I woke up, I immediately went to printing to check on the shirts and hoodies, then shortly after doing morning rituals I packed all items to be shipped and replied to shop messages.
Them packages.. haha
And then I went to Morong to pick up payments and have a very late lunch and then I met my best friend and we went to Tanay to buy shop supplies and also to pay for the supplies we bought online. Then we ate at McDonalds Tanay, for the first time. McDo Tanay is always on full house and we never had the chance. Good thing today there wasn’t much people, probably because of the rain.
That one time when we actually took a decent photo using my cam haha
Yup so we went to BPI and damn it the queue was like ahgasfhsja and we tried waiting for like 15 minutes but it doesn’t seem to be making progress and I’m still like 20+ numbers away. So we decided to ditch and just come back some other time because we still have stuff to do. We went to SaveMore to look for supplies. I literally squealed when I saw this at Pandayan:
Taylor Swift Myx Mag!! Aghhh!
I have been looking for this! I’ve gone back and forth to SM Taytay for days and they just don’t have it. I’m really surprised Pandayan Tanay has a copy and this was the last one!!! Aghhhh omg I just can’t!!!! Its perfect! All the song chords and the articles!!! Help
So after buying supplies, we went home to work on some new items to be launched at the shop. We’ve been working on these (well actually my best friend did most haha) its supposed to be like a sort of plushie keychain. I’m not yet sure how its called, but its gonna be superb! Hee :)
Adventure Time + TFIOS
After plushie making, my bestie went home and then I did some box painting. I retouched some of the boxes I did before and added final touches. This one in particular was hard, I tried but nah
I tried lol
Hahaha so it all leads up to a very tired version of me now responding to shop messages, while chattinng with my friends and listening to music. x
