Laidback Sunday, I need this! :):) for today is the start of the zombie week!
and btw, 新年快乐!!! :)
My sistur and I went to Ortigas yesterday, in search of her black flats. lol. When we went to Forever 21 (F21), of course the impulsive buyer in me was spurred to purchase stuff I don’t actually need hahaha. Ergo, I bought two necklaces, one with the litol tag of HOPE engraved into it, (I believe that LOVE was out of stock already) albeit my sister protested on the heart shaped one ‘coz it’s a bit pricey and that I could actually make something like that on my own, hee! Nah, I have no spare time to go to Quiapo and buy the materials :):) F21’s accessories never fail to amuse me, I saw their own version of a kidada bracelet, you close it by magnet. haha, this I could hardly explain. Anyhow, another thing I purchased was the LUCIDarling fantastic nails nail polish from Etude House. Apparently, I’m into wearing nail polishes that are sparkling and shimmering. I feel like my nails now have some sequins on it. lol. For photos, I shall perhaps upload soonish!
Anyhow, our thesis oral validation, better yet known as defense was scheduled this week, so wish us luck! So many things to do so litol time yet I have to bear with it, haha! I often sob or meltdown ‘coz of burnout, and I hope I could still manage to overcome everything with God’s grace (Hope) and my family and friend’s support (Love). Thus, Love and Hope. :):) You see, I don’t have to wallow in stress.
And oooooh! My mother bought wishing papers in China Town, Manila, we wrote our wishes there and burned it on 12mn before Chinese New Year. :):) It’s turning into a tradition for some strange reason.
Lastly, I present you our vanity. huh, hee!
”Having a hobby that’s different from everyone else’s? Awkward. Singing the national anthem on weekends instead of going to sleepovers? More awkward. Gain a lot of weight before you hit the growth spurt? Awkward. Frizzy hair, don’t embrace the curls yet? Awkward. Try to straighten it? Awkward!”
“I think, for me, the bigger pitfall is losing your self awareness”
“I think I am smart unless I am really, really in love, and then I am ridiculously stupid.”
“…The only way that I can feel better about myself — pull myself out of that awful pain of losing someone — is writing songs about it to get some sort of clarity.”
Fellow 4th year MC students, it’s prelims week once again and we’re bombarded with school works especially thesis, IKR, but despite that may this article I found online help us J

This is your word of assurance for the examinations that lie ahead : You have had many anxious moments. You have been fearful and dismayed. But I have helped you, I have not brought you this far to desert you, to leave you,to let you find your way home. I have begun a work of faith in your life. I have watched your progress. I have strengthened you. Thus, your confidence and your courage can be quickened by this thought: I have brought you this far and I will see you through. But child, this is how you shall go forth and win the victory : Not by your might, nor by your power but by My Spirit. You have learned from your own understanding but your understanding has failed you. Therefore I will give you this Spirit of understanding. You have applied your own wisdom but your wisdom has not been sufficient. Therefore my Spirit of wisdom will rest upon you. Know this: That in all you set to do, My Spirit will empower you and work a miracle for you and glory and honor will come to Me. Look not to your lack of wisdom. Look not to your weaknesses. But look on to Me. I remember you are dust and know you are fearful. But I have loved you with an everlasting love. I will continue My faithfulness to you. Understand this : My grace is sufficient for you, My power is perfected in your weaknesses. What is done will be accomplished by the power of My Spirit in you. You will see tremendous victory wrought by My hand.
