19th

Hi everyone! Today, I decided to blog about how I celebrated my 19th birthday last January 9 because as weird as it may sound, I really did not expect for me to be super happy during that day. Mygahd Moira tigilan mo ang pagiging emosyonal mo! haha! So here’s what went down.

I originally planned on seeing my best friends during my birthday and just chill and film fun videos with them. However, I already felt like it wasn’t going to push through as I wasn’t sure if our schedules would meet. And then, I suddenly read an announcement on Facebook regarding my enrollment last Sunday. I supposedly only needed to go to UP on January 10 but since my adviser couldn’t make it that day, I had to see her on January 9 instead. But I would still need to go back on January 10 for validation and for paying my tuition. When I read that announcement, I literally shouted “HA????” as it was so last minute and instead of hanging out with my friends, I needed to go to school on my birthday so that I can enroll?? Ang lungkot kasi na-hassle pa ko sa birthday ko! But I had to remind myself to stop being so dramatic about it because it’s not the end of the world, hello! So I just accepted that fact for I don’t want to get affected by petty reasons anymore.

It’s a good thing that my parents and I also went to a reunion with their college barkada at Timberland last Sunday because I finally got to go swimming again and forget about all the stress! Plus, masarap pa ang food! I got to unwind there and I realized that despite of all the things that weren’t going my way, my life is still blessed and amazing if only I looked at the brighter side of it.

When the clock struck midnight, I immediately greeted myself with a Happy Birthday and even faked a smile because I wanted to change my mindset and just be happy. My parents then came into my room to greet me too! And suddenly, a few friends also began to greet me online and I honestly did not expect that for I felt like they would be too lazy to actually wait for 12 midnight and already have a birthday message for me HAHA.

Then as planned, I went to school real early in the morning and I was surprisingly first in line! Himala! After that, I immediately went home and played The Last of Us all afternoon and I had no regrets! When it was already night time, I got ready for my mini birthday celebration.

Wow may pa-glam shot pa si ate gurl! HAHAHA.

The food was so freaking delicious that night and I had an amazing time hanging out with my cousins. Some family and friends also greeted me online and some even personally messaged me on Facebook and sobrang na-touch ako kasi swear, di ko talaga inexpect! Before I knew it, I went to bed with a happy heart and a smile that couldn’t be erased. 🙂

I really thought that I would be crying on my birthday (HAHA) because of all the things that were making me sad but instead, I was actually genuinely happy. Just when you think that your life is falling apart, it suddenly has a funny way of letting you know that it is totally not! I also realized that there really are a lot of people who care for me and who still remember me on my special day.

Remember, always look at the brighter side of life. It’s way more fun there. 😉

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. ❤
