I turned a year older so I bought myself a new watercolor palette. I upgraded my student-grade 8-color palette to the 16-color palette. If that doesn't scream maturity, then I don't know what does! But in all honesty, I’m dreading adulthood because I honestly don’t want to be held accountable for any of the choices I’ll make. I just want to avoid any form of responsibility. The best birthday gift would’ve been the abolition of my strictly imposed curfew (19 years in but I still have to be home by 10PM).

On that same week, I facilitated a Leadership training with a few of my batchmates and upperclassmen. It was really weird getting called "Miss" by 7th graders but it felt so humbling to have shared my experience as a student leader back in high school. I have no clue how I managed to facilitate all day despite having only an hour of sleep.

Also, I really got into writing on my journal with Halsey playing in the background. Is There Somewhere is the perfect song to listen to when it's past 3AM and you're alone with your ~*feeligngz yuck gross ew*~ 

The frequent trips to Pearl Drive and Shangri-la have turned mundane but my friends make my trips superkaduper fun! If I'm not in Pearl or Shang, I’m practically rotting my summer vacation away at home. As much as I want to write, there’s just nothing I can purge out of my brain!!! I feel like I’ve been drained of all my creative juices but luckily, I came across Camie Juan’s blog and picked up the “Life Lately” prompt. Along with this, my friend Ida tagged me in one of her blog posts. Let me just answer these questions like those passé Multiply surveys!

1. Do you have hidden talents? If so, what are they?
I can solve a 3x3 Rubik’s Cube in less than 5 minutes. It’s a pretty long time which is why I’m teaching myself how to speed cube.

2. Name 3 things you can’t leave the house without.
Lip tint from The Face Shop, my wallet, and my phone.

3. If you were in a car, rain started to pour, and you were looking outside the window, what’s that one song that would play in the background?
Blindsided by Bon Iver

4. What’s a movie you’ll never get tired of watching? (Add a fave quote from it.)
I can’t talk about it. (Someone please get the Fight Club reference)

5. If you could only drink one beverage (besides water) for the rest of your life, what would it be?
A&W Cream Soda or the red Gatorade

6. Would you rather be a mermaid with a hideous tail or a fairy with hideous wings? Why?
I’m a beach bum. I’d rather be the Mermaid.

7. Who is your ultimate bae? (… I had to.)
John O’Callaghan ughghhhggguuuughhh I'm devastated over the fact that I'll be missing him again.Why must my money go to something else other than concert tickets? Oh right, adulthood.

8. What was the first fiction book you’ve read?
Twilight………….. Please kill me.

9. If you could live anywhere (even in a fictional world), where would you live?
I’d live on the Upper East Side of New York with the cast of Gossip Girl.

10. Why did you start blogging?
I used to be such a fangirl  in 2010. All I reblogged were photos of the members of my favorite bands (All Time Low, The Maine, Mayday Parade, etc.). But then came across Tricia Gosingtian’s blog and found out she came from the same high school. I thought it would’ve been cool if I documented my life as she did so, I gave personal blogging a try and I really liked it. Come 2012, I got an entry-level DSLR camera from my parents and really got into concert photography. I used my blogs to promote my “photography” but then I ran out of concerts to shoot because man, concert tickets are expensive. So after jumping from one blogging platform to another, I’ve finally landed in Blogger and haven’t left ever since.

11. Who is/are your favorite blogger/s?
Tricia Gosingtian, Camie Juan (her prompts are really interesting!), and A Beautiful Mess are the only ones I view regularly. I love browsing through blogs but I can’t seem to keep up with everyone at the same time (which is why I can't tag anyone... because I have no blogger friends.#alat)
