Rocktember + Central Stage

Just a short recap of the places that I've been ! 


My best friend Bill invited me to watch their band's performance as they will be participating in a contest, the Rocktember. It was an event where bands from universities and colleges will be given a chance to showcase their talents. 

The event was held at San Sebastian College's Auditorium.

Since my best friend will be busy on the day of the contest, Kath, his girlfriend and her friends accompanied me instead. I've known Kath for quite some time, but I'm that awkward friend who gets shy around new people, so I didn't talk a lot to her friends. Sorry if I came off as "maarte" or snob, I just don't know what to say, I'm just too shy to talk with you guys TTuTT   

Anyway, reached the venue and I'm very impressed with the school's premises, because I'm from a public school, I have no idea what a private one actually looks like hahahaha ! Their auditorium looks like a freaking cinema xD 

 and the contest finally begun !

I wasn't able to take a picture of my best friend while they were performing because I got hooked by their performance! They sang their rendition of Price Tag and my best friend's own song composition ! I feel so effin' proud ! :) I talked and congratulated him before going home because I couldn't stay until the end of the show. It's getting quite late too. 

Anyway, I had fun ! I feel so pumped whenever I see someone playing guitar or drums ! It's always a good sight , making me remember my old band T^T Music has always been my happy pill, maybe that's why I easily fall for someone who knows how to play an instrument. lol say whuttt ? 

Central Stage

Last week was my cousin's birthday :) He went back here in Manila just so he could celebrate it with his family and I was lucky enough to get dragged with his celebration ! 

The celebration took place at Central Stage ktv located at MoA's seaside. Took pictures before going inside.

Blogger Dream

Before I start this entry, I just want to request a prayer from you (who's reading this now) for my fellow Filipinos who are affected by the Typhoon Mario aftermath. The down pour of rain was so heavy and non-stop resulting to a massive flood.  Many residents were forced to evacuate for their safety. Overall, almost half a million residents of Manila and other provinces are affected. :( 

Somehow today, the weather calmed down a bit, and the sky is brightening up now. This will soon pass, so to my fellow Filipinos, please be strong !

Now let's get down to the business haha ! 

I think I might consider being a 'real' blogger in the future.

I get inspired whenever I read somebody's blog, especially those Filipina bloggers who reside in my dream land, Japan. I get so fired up whenever I see their entries about the places they had been and get to enjoy every little thing Japan has to offer. I feel so excited hearing their stories and adventures and it's making my motivation fueled up. I'm like "I want to go there too and take pictures and put it in my blog".

It's not because I envy them that's why I want to go there. Given the fact that it has been my dream, I also want to explore the places and share it with people, tell them my stories of how amazing Japan can be. Whenever I see my future self, it would be me wearing a very kawaii outfit, holding a camera and taking pictures of everything I find interesting. That image has been on my mind for quite some time now. I feel so overwhelmed by that idea. Personally, I didn't think I would end up having these dream since blogging is just my hobby but look at me now ! broadcasting it to the world hahaha ! I want to be a Japan lifestyle blogger. So far within my reach but who cares ? Dreaming is free ! :D

Anyway, I don't know if this is just because of my excitement of going away. I might lose my drive one day and forget about this 'real blogger' dream. but as of now, I really do enjoy blogging and will continue doing it :)

Or maybe it's because it's 5 am now and my brain is still working so fine that I came up with such an unreachable dream.

About Me Page ??

If there's a last thing I would want to do on earth, it would be making my "About Me" page. Actually, I don't plan on making this entry but I've been staring this white blank screen for almost an hour and still couldn't come up with something that satisfies me, Like what should I write ? Who the heck am I ? It's 5 am and I'm still up, This has always been my dilemma. It's not like I don't really know myself that much. I just don't know what are the right things to say or the right way to introduce, of course I want it to be unique and something that my "readers" (if there's really any) would find interesting.  I bet all the bloggers out there can relate to this. I salute you all for coming up with such well thought and well-delivered introductions But really, what should I write ? T___T me so hopeless. 

Look at me, instead of doing and thinking, I'm procrastinating and letting out all of my frustrations through this post. 

I might do something stupid and just say

"Hey, I'm Grace and I love donuts"

I can't just shrug it off and not do it. I feel like it's part of my obligations, so I really want to come up with something that will represent not only me but also the things that I'm passionate at. I should probably think about it thoroughly, and put more thought and effort.  

and now my back is aching, I should head to bed !

How My August Went

August felt like a New Year to me. It seemed like I have to pull myself together and go back to my normal self. I might be okay but I'm not fine at all. It has been a hard month for me to be honest.

I had a fever for almost a week. I'm not the type of person to catch a fever as I believe in my strong immune system, but I guess I was wrong that time. My taste buds were gone and I lost my apetite. Sleeping became troublesome as my head felt like burning. I also had an emotional breakdown. I cried for nights. It's really a frustrating feeling.
Thank God I finally recovered after a week or so 

I also had a haircut coz I've been torn between keeping it long to having it short for a change. In the end, I decided to finally cut it. From waist length to shoulder length. I haven't had a haircut for like 2 and a half years as I was very regretful the last time I cut it up to my jaw line. My hair is always messy it became unmanageable, I'm not the type of girl who grabs a comb every 5 minutes so I often look like an evil minion. And then there's also Taylor Swift rocking her new short hair, she just made my decision 100% definite!! 
 So yeah that's how I came up with it. I have my reasons you know. 
 Booooo yah !!!~

I spent more of my August by reading manga and watching anime !

I've read Dengeki Daisy. I love the story line because it doesn't only focus on romance, it has an action, mysterious and psychological genre. Also the fact that it took 68 chapters just for Kurosaki and Teru's first kiss made it more exciting! Too bad it's still ongoing.

I've also watched the anime of Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun. I've known it a long time ago before the anime is released, I've been reading it's manga. The anime made me love Haru because to be honest, I find the manga a little boring.

Educational Tour

We had our Educational Tour last August 22. 

and you know what's the most frustrating about it ?

Me and Vien got separated from the rest of the gang.
I didn't enjoy half of the tour because of that. You feel me right ? I'm excited on spending the whole tour with them because I'm sure we'll enjoy the company. But no. We didn't get on the same bus. Luckily, we're with our other classmates so it's not that awkward, except for this guy that I was seated next to. He's from a different course and he's not talking to anybody in the bus.

We spent most of our time on the bus while getting to our destinations so it sucks that we're not complete. On the side note, we're actually the ones who were at fault because we came late so we had no choice but to face the consequences. Screw that. 

Anyway after getting separated we hit the road and headed to our first location.  

First stop : Enchanted Farm Village University.
A decent picture with Mrs. Ochoa and my class 

another one with Mrs. Nieva and Sir Bautista.
The Gawad Kalinga held a short seminar and talked about their history, their goals and how they plan on changing the society by helping those who are in need, They also provide free education to the deserving students and accepts internships from around the globe.
