All I Want for Christmas 2016

HAPPY DECEMBER EVERYBODY! ❀

I am super glad that the holidaysΒ are finally upon us and I can’t wait to go out and see all the festive decorations and programs around the city! This also indicates that it’s time for more Christmas-themed posts, or at least try to have more up haha. For my first post this December, I am blogging about my wishlist for Christmas 2016 for I also did this last year. And it’s so funny because in last year’s post (All I Want for Christmas 2015), I talked about how as you get older, the things you want can not be bought anymore. Now I feel like I want to take that back. haha! Well, not really. What I mean is that most of the things on my wishlist now are more like “needs” rather than “wants.” What I’m trying to say is that maybe, as you get older, you’ll learn how to be more practical and smarter when it comes to money-making decisions. Money is there for you to survive, so please, use it wisely! πŸ™‚ Anyway, enough with the intro, here is my Christmas wishlist for the year 2016:

Summer Bucketlist 2016 UPDATE!

And just like that, my “summer” for 2016 is now coming to an end. 😦 Well actually, this break lasted around 10 weeks, and it was pretty long but never enough! I am not looking forward to this school year at all because I am now on my third year of college, and I am so freaking scared. Everyone says that it is one of the most difficult years other than thesis year, so please wish me luck? My classes start tomorrow and I need all the luck I can get. 😦

Anyway, on a more positive note, at the start of my “summer,” I made a bucketlist of the things I wanted to accomplish (which you can check out here)Β and it is now time to see if I did them all!

(1) Work out. HAHAHA. Okay, to be fair, I DID work out for around two weeks and that was the time when I decided that I wanted to live healthier and LOSE ALL MY FREAKING BELLY FAT!!! I got really into it at first but as time passes by, you can’t help but want to eat! LOL fried chicken is bae. ❀ Oh well, I’ll try again next summer. haha!

(2) Learn to drive. Sadly, I did not get to do this just because I didn’t really feel like wanting to learn how to drive at this point in my life. To be honest, it’s probably because I’m scared to drive here in the Philippines. I guess I’ll just enroll in a driving school when I’m completely ready. πŸ™‚

(3) Finish my PS3 games. YES!!! I finished The Walking Dead Season 2 (which was so heart-racing and it can really make you feel guilty just bc of choices you had to make), Tomb Raider Underworld (which took forever), and the Uncharted series (yup, all 4 of them). I didn’t get to play much though of my Barbie Puppy Rescue game because I think it was broken (?) and I did start playing Life is Strange on the PS4 but I got too lazy to keep going because playing video games everyday can take a toll on you sometimes. I’ll probably finish it next semestral break. Do you have any suggestions on fun and interesting games we can buy for the PS4? πŸ™‚

(4) Play Sims 4 more often. I did play the Sims 4 during the first half of my break. I also bought the Get Together expansion pack but unfortunately, it didn’t really click with me. And now I have totally neglected my Sims since I started making YouTube videos. I’ll probably play more of it during my next break na lang lol, but at the same time, I want to buy the new Dine Out game pack! The struggle is real. haha!

(5) Watch more movies. I totally watched a lot of movies during this break. To name a few, I watched Notting Hill, English Only Please, Legally Blonde, Legally Blonde 2, Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, Sabrina, Imagine You and Me, and sooo many more.

(6) Finish a book. UGH I didn’t even try to start finishing Girl Online on Tour. I think it’s because it’s too “young” for me anymore. LOL is that even a thing? But I did read Jadine’s book entitled Team Real so does that count? haha!

(7) Buy a new phone. YAAAS I finally bought a new phone! If you want to know more about my iPhone SE, check my blog postΒ here!

(8) Blog more. I totally did the opposite of this. 😦 It is difficult to do vlogging and blogging at the same time. But I do try my best to brainstorm new blog post ideas. I just really don’t have the time, energy, and resources to do both flawlessly. Mahina ang kalaban.

(9) Vlog. YES!!! I finally started making YouTube videos and I really don’t get why I didn’t start sooner since vlogging makes me happy and it always leaves me with a sense of accomplishment. To be honest, I still have a looong way to go since this is just the beginning, but I know that consistency is key and I hope that I will never lose my drive to produce more content on my channel. Check out my latest video down below!

(10) Go out of town with my best friends. HUHU. This did not at all happen because we (well at least my friends, lol) were so busy this entire summer. There was only ONE legit time when we ALL hanged out as a group, and it’s heartbreaking to think that we only get to see each other a few times in the whole year. Is this really what it means to be growing up? 😦

(11) Spend more time with family and catch up with friends. I did get to spend more time with my family especially during the month of June because I had a balikbayan relative who stayed with us for two weeks. Also, my cousin who just graduated college had to leave mid-June to work in the US, so we went out a lot before she left to really take advantage of the time since she’ll be working there for a year. I also got to catch up with my friends but not as often as I hoped. 😦

(12) HAVE FUN! Did I have fun this “summer?” I’m not completely sure. There were times that were so much fun like YTFF but there were also times where I was just all alone at home with nothing to do. But at least I got to start on my dream of having a YouTube channel, right?

In conclusion, my summer 2016 was not at all perfect and not at all what I hoped it would be. But that’s just how life is. It won’t always be sunny and happy, and things won’t always go your way. You just really have to suck it up, roll with the punches, and choose to see life through rose-colored glasses.

La vie en rose.

My Summer Bucketlist 2016

I am one final project away from my “summer!” WOOHOO! I put quotation marks because technically, summer season is almost over in the Philippines, which was April to May. But since the academic calendar shift, my vacation is now from June to July. I thought it would be nice to share with you some of the things I want to accomplish in this two-month break, and I want to see if I actually get these tasks done before my summer is over. So here we go!

(1) Work out. I feel like I say I’m going to do this every summer but it never actually happens HAHAHA. I really hope I can do this FOR REAL this time. But I’m not sure if I can do the healthy diet part LOL.

(2) Learn to drive. I hope I can turn this thing into a reality! Although to be honest, I’m kinda scared of driving in the Philippines. Plus my height is not exactly an advantage for this task LOL. But hey, if I do accomplish this, then I’d be one heck of a great driver. Because like my dad always says, “If you can drive in the Philippines, then you’re officially an expert driver.” haha!

(3) Finish my PS3 games. I absolutely love playing video games! But the thing is, I can’t play them during the school year because I would totally end up forgetting to do all my plates and assignments. But now that I have all the time in my hands, I really want to play more and finish all my unfinished games like Tomb Raider Underworld, The Walking Dead 2, and Barbie Puppy Rescue Adventure. YUP. BARBIE. I also want to start playing Life is Strange on the PS4 because I think it’s such a good game!

(4) Play Sims 4 more often. Like I said earlier, I want to play more of my video games! I literally did not play any Sims during the school year because trust me, it can be sooo time-consuming. But now I am so excited to get back at it!!! And maybe even buy some new expansion, game, and stuff packs. I guess finishing video games is my way of being “productive.” hahaha!

(5) Watch more movies. I love having movie nights especially during the summer, because I feel like each film will teach you something different every time and you get to expand your knowledge and wisdom. First on my list are Notting Hill and The Matrix Trilogy! Any more movie suggestions? πŸ™‚

(6) Finish a book. It has been so long since I have finished a book, and to think that before college, I could read really thick books (the thickest I’ve read so far was City of Heavenly Fire), and now I can’t even do that anymore! Well, first on my list of books is Girl Online on Tour, which I have started to read like one or two months ago, and I just never had the chance to continue reading it. But after I’m done with that, do you have any great book suggestions for me? πŸ™‚

(7) Buy a new phone. I have been saving all the money I got from my birthday last January to buy a new phone, and I am really eyeing the new iPhone SE. I hope I could get my hands on it real soon! huhu

(8) Blog more. This is pretty self-explanatory. lol.

(9) Vlog. I have always wanted to try vlogging or making YouTube videos, but I never really had the courage to speak in front of the camera. Hopefully, I can try to do it this summer so that I can conquer my fear and also, it would be something I can tick off my lifetime bucketlist.

(10) Go out of town with my best friends. My best friends and I have been wanting to go on a trip for about a year now, and we could never really find the right time to have one. But fingers crossed, this summer will finally be the moment where we get to go to Baler huhuhu. I also haven’t seen them in four months, and I just really miss them so much. 😦

(11) Spend more time with family and catch up with friends. It’s not everyday that you get to be on a two-month vacation, so I want to make as much memories as I can with my loved ones!

(12) HAVE FUN!

What’s on your summer bucketlist? πŸ™‚
