My Sunday Currently | February 12, 2017

Hi everyone! It’s been a while since I legit blogged something so I thought I would do another Sunday Currently since the last one I did was around two months ago?? Wow, time surely flies by fast. Anyway, it’s around 8 PM right now, and I decided to squeeze in this post before I return to stuDYING. Save me, please. I’m so sleepy. 😦 Ang lutang ko. Okay, here goes!

CURRENTLY

READING stuff for Kas 1. I have to submit an essay which will serve as our exam on Thursday and it just stresses me out! I know that my professor for this subject has high standards and I really don’t want to disappoint him or myself.. *moira shakes terribly*

WRITING down all the things I need to accomplish in the upcoming weeks.

LISTENING to TheMakeupChair’s voice as I am watching her Valentine’s Day Makeup Tutorial on Youtube.

THINKING of new video ideas for my channel! I’m leaning on focusing on quick makeup tutorials because they’re my favorite ones to binge watch. Any suggestions on videos I can film next? 🙂

SMELLING nothing.

WISHING to buy a new laptop because the one I am currently using is slowly giving up on me 😦 Pati laptop, sinusukuan ako?? HAHAHAH.

HOPING to manage my time well in the next months since I don’t like doing things half-baked.

WEARING a blue shirt from high school and neon pink shorts from H&M.

LOVING how my skin feels right now! Haha, it sounds so conceited, but I just exfoliated a while ago using the Black Mallows Fluffy Scrub from Skin Genie, and now my arms and legs feel so smooth ❤ HAHA.

WANTING to sleep. 😦

NEEDING a break from acads. 😦 And to think that I’ve only been back in school for four weeks! Hay, 15 weeks to go.. Syempre may countdown na hahaha.

FEELING stressed and overwhelmed with all the things I need to do this week. Ugh, I always get this feeling during the start of a new week when I just think of all the deadlines I have to the point that sometimes I break down and cry. 😦 But I still end up finishing all those things so I know that all this worrying is for nothing. haha! Remember, this too shall pass!

And here’s a little quote of the day to get us all inspired: You only fail when you stop trying.

I hope you have a great week ahead!

Keep going, even if it hurts

I cannot believe it has been months ever since I did a legit fashion related post. I know I have been busy with school and trying out YouTube and all, but to be completely honest, those are not the first actual reasons why I decided to stop posting “OOTD’s,” as people call them, on my blog.

I don’t want to detail every single thing that happened as to why I stopped, but to summarize.. I felt insecure.

Yes, fashion and beauty and all things girly make me happy, but they make me feel insecure too. It’s not easy to live in a world where you are constantly judged for how you look. It hurts how you can be so passionate about something but you don’t always feel like you’re good enough for it. It’s like loving something with your whole heart, only to realize that it doesn’t love you back. Hugot?? hahaha. It’s kind of too deep or corny or whatever, but I’m sure you have felt that too.

But at the same time, even if you’re hurting because you feel like you’re never going to be good enough for what you want to become, you still go for it anyway. I still go for it, even if there is no certainty as to what this blog will lead to. Maybe I really am just an average teenage girl trying to look good in outfit posts, filming makeup tutorials for no purpose, or typing this blog post that only a select few will read, and maybe that’s it. I want to believe I can be more, but I can only hope.

The point is, insecurities can eat you up. They can make you feel less or unworthy, but never let them stop you. Kahit na ang sakit at di mo na kaya, you have to keep going for it. For if you don’t, you’ll be left with a lot of doubts, regrets, and “what if’s.”

No matter how cliche the saying “Don’t give up” is, it’s true. Cliches are cliches for a reason. And remember that it may be hard to wait around for something you know might never happen, but it’s definitely harder to give up when you know it’s everything that you want (that’s my favorite quote btw haha!). So ngayon ka pa ba susuko?

Top from Cotton On, Jacket from Penshoppe, Shorts from Kim hahaha

I don’t know where this deep topic came from but it never hurts to try and write something inspirational! (weh moira??) Also, thank you to my best friend Ilka for taking these photos. You’re the best! ❤

As we leave 2016, why not leave all our insecurities with it too? Besides, you have to be the heroine of your own life, not the victim. 😉

Change is Coming… AGAIN!

Hello everybody!!! ❤ Wow, how I missed saying that. I haven’t posted in this blog for around two weeks now because I decided to take a break from it. As I have always been mentioning, I am still a college student taking up Architecture. I am currently on my third year and this last semester was SUPER DRAINING. I kid you not. I have been staying up until 4 am to finish all these plates and papers and presentations so I couldn’t really work on blogs or vlogs that much for I promised myself that I would prioritize school over other things. Ayokong ma-delay! Haha, anyway, even if it has been a tiring sem, it was the most fun and memorable yet, but I’ll save that for another blog post. 😉

And finally, I can now say that I am officially on break!!! Yas, four weeks of freedom and happiness. ❤ I actually just had a sleepover with my best friends last weekend and we took lots of pictures and videos so stay tuned for that!

However, I have decided to make some changes with Little Miss Moira. As much as I want to post every single day or every other day, I really can’t anymore. I know it sucks because I really wanted this blog to be a daily thing but like I said, school is my top priority. I have also decided that I would focus on vlogging more rather than blogging. I know everyone says that making videos on YouTube is easy, but it is not! It takes a lot of time from conceptualizing to filming to editing and to uploading. I would really want to step up my YouTube channel and in order for me to do that, I need to make more time for it. Hay, it seems like 24 hours in a day just isn’t enough sometimes, right?

But do not worry for I will continue to post on this blog! I cannot promise to post as often as before when I used to focus on fashion stuff; however, my next posts will really be more about life updates and personal posts and life lessons and what not. You know, things of that sort haha!

I hope you respect whatever decisions I have made with Little Miss Moira as I feel like this is really what I need to do right now. I also hope that you continue to support my blog (weh moira) and my YouTube channel which you can subscribe to here!

On a different note, there’s only 6 days left until Christmas! I wish that yours will be joyous and full of blessings! What’s your Christmas wish this year? 🙂

My Sunday Currently | October 30, 2016

Hello everyone! Yay I’m blogging again! Last week was a pretty stressful week and I’m glad that I am finally on a short break from school. Well, four days to be exact, and there’s only two left. *cries* But anyway, on the bright side, I finally did something that I was always scared to do, and that is to share my blog on social media! I know, I know, such a shallow reason to be scared, right? Well, I guess that’s just the reality of being an introvert. So if you’re reading this because you saw my post on Facebook, hello! I hope you don’t click out just yet. HAHA. Ok enough with this intro and let’s start!

CURRENTLY

READING some new tweets on Twitter. Follow me @alyannamoira! HAHA shameless plug.

WRITING down the things I aim to accomplish this long weekend. Hopefully I have time to finish them all. huhu

LISTENING to the sound of my aircon hahahaha.

THINKING of what I’m going to eat for dinner tonight..

SMELLING nothing.

WISHING that life will continue to change for the better ❤

HOPING that I would be able to get rid of this annoying cough before I go back to school on Wednesday!

WEARING an old blue Planet Hollywood shirt (which I was also wearing during my last Sunday Currently HAHA) and blue shorts.

LOVING the fact that I FINALLY got to go shopping this weekend!!! I kinda shopped til I dropped.. but that’s alright because the last time I went shopping was like four months ago?? Oh, and I’m also planning to film a haul soon, yay. ❤

WANTING to watch 4th Impact’s concert on December 3! :(( But I keep on forgetting to ask my dad to buy tickets huhu.

NEEDING time to finish work, time to blog, time to vlog, and time to sleep. HUHUHU. What a life this life.

FEELING happy!!! I am forever grateful for every single blessing, especially those in disguise, that has come my way. ❤ I hope I don’t lose this feeling soon. 😦

And here’s a little quote of the day to get us all inspired: If you’re really honest with yourself about what you want out of life, life gives it to you.

I hope you have a great week ahead!

In the Middle

Hello everyone! It’s been a long time since I did a post like this because I rarely have free time anymore. But since we have no classes today and I surprisingly finished all the things I need to do, I finally have the time to legit blog about what’s been going on in my life lately. Yay! So basically, I’m already in the middle of my fifth semester in college, aka third year college, aka HELL. It’s a known fact in my course that third year is probably the most difficult yet, next to thesis I guess.

Before the semester started, I was on a two month break, basically doing nothing. I was just hanging out with my cousins, watching movies, playing video games, and what not. And in a blink of an eye, those precious ten weeks of just sleeping and eating and laughing were about to end! Noooo! I was not ready to go back to school. No. I didn’t hate school, but I just didn’t like it that much anymore. Whenever I’m in class, I just always feel tired and anxious and all I ever wished was for the day to end so that I can go back home in my safe place, my comfort zone. I didn’t want to experience that again because it’s not fun. It was sad and scary and frustrating.

I was so afraid to go back to school but there’s really not much that I can do. I still want to get a good education and to have that, I have to go through the “sacrifices.” It’s not always fun, and it definitely isn’t easy, but it has to be worth it, right? So I enrolled and my first day of my third year in college started. It was only my first day and I was already freaking late for class! What a way to start the semester right? Every first meeting with my new professors made me so nervous, and to think that I have SIX majors for this sem plus one Engineering subject. Deadz na dis. Despite that, I tried my best to look on the bright side. At least I have the same classes as my friends! I mean, I know a lot of people in Arki and they probably know me too, pero mabibilang lang talaga sa kamay yung mga feel ko ka-close ko na. So yeah, somehow I was still happy because at least if there’s ever any group activity, my friends and I will automatically be groupmates! Well, wrong. Naubusan ako ng groupmates for not just one, but two of my subjects. Here I am, trying to be positive and all, and then I’m suddenly alone again? No one likes being the last one picked. It sucks. Very, very much.

However, life doesn’t stop for anyone. It goes on, and no matter how crappy you feel, you have to keep going, even if all you want to do is find comfort in your safe place. But just when you think that your life is falling apart, it surprises you and it lets you realize that your life isn’t really falling apart. Sometimes, not getting what you want is a wonderful stroke of luck, and that’s what happened to me. Because I didn’t become groupmates with my close friends, I got to become groupmates with new people whom I have never talked to before. I got to make new friends, while keeping the old ones, of course. I had the chance to talk and laugh and mingle with people outside of my small circle of friends, and it feels so nice. I get to go to classes where I can actually talk to my seatmates and share jokes with them. Before I knew it, I was enjoying the company of the people around me and it was the genuine kind. The kind wherein you’re just extremely happy that you have actual people to talk to and to listen to you. Ang saya-saya lang.

And yes, my third year of college still stresses me out because of all the school work, but I’m so thankful that somehow, I’m not as anxious as I was before the semester started because now, I know that there are people who are there for me and that it doesn’t hurt to make more friends. I learned that you should give everyone a chance and to have a little faith in people, a little faith in life, and a little faith in yourself.

It’s just so crazy to think how three months ago, I was crying so much because I was scared to face all the stress and anxiety that my third year of college will bring me. And yet here I am, already in the middle of the semester, and I’m not crying and I’m not as scared anymore. I’m smiling and I’m happy! I have real friends and I enjoy being with them! I’m motivated and I’m driven and I’m hopeful that even better days will come.

Whatever you’re facing right now, know that you will always make it through. I know it doesn’t seem like it, but life can really change for the better, sometimes even in a blink of an eye. You just have to keep going and never lose hope in the future. Feel everything, let it hurt, but don’t let it stop you. Don’t ever lose faith in life and don’t ever lose faith in yourself.

Whatever pain you’re feeling right now cannot compare to the joy that is coming, darling! Kaya mo yan! I believe in you. ❤
