Recent Realities Vol. 1

I’ve decided to start up a new column called Recent Realities. This will be a dump post of all my “Life Lately” occurrences. There are times when I want to summarise all my happenings, and I figure this new column will help me. This column will not be as regular compared to my other ones; I’ll just post this when I have a lot to cover. Like right now. Life’s been really kicking my butt lately, and I’m so tired. My summer work schedule is easier than the other seasons, but it’s just way more exhausting. The heat and humidity doesn’t help, either. I am so ready for winter. Aside from work, these are some of my major happenings since I do have a life outside of blogging, haha!

First Tuesday of the month means it’s time to do Raisa and Eirene’s wonderful link-up, My Favourite Things. May’s been a crazy busy month, but I still found time to discover new favourites. From books to skincare products to films and music, I’ve been exposed to a variety of new things. I hope to discover more in June! With that said, here are my favourites!

Significant Books

I ❤ reading. I read books, mangas, and fanfics, and I re-read things I haven’t read in awhile. To give you an idea, since this January, I’ve read or re-read 111 books and mangas — this doesn’t even include the fanfics I read. Becca asked me to teach her my ways, but I don’t really have a “way”, haha! ^^; I simply read before I sleep, on the weekend, and in coffee shops. I make the time to read because it is something I really love to do, and there’s nothing better than reading a book that significantly impacts me in life-changing ways. And this post compiles my top significant books that have affected me deeply.

My Favourite Things: February 2016

Can’t believe it’s February! This is what I call the crazy month. I’ve got the annual photography contest to do at my workplace, and I’ll be running around with my head cut off trying to do all these tasks. Regardless, I’m here to do Raisa and Eirene’s wonderful link-up, My Favourite Things. January was — unexpectedly — a busy month for me, so I haven’t really been exposed to anything new. Then again, it seems like I just don’t want to get into new things lately because I want things that are familiar to give me comfort. And with this month’s being my super busy month, this entry will list some of my favourite things that gives me relaxation when things become too much and I want to escape . . .

2015 Book Meme

2015 is almost coming to an end. This year, I didn’t read as much books and mangas I did the last two years. This year, I spent most of my time reading fanfics or re-reading fanfics I just couldn’t get enough of. I ended up reading 50 books and mangas and 11 volumes of scanslations. And this is the year where I spent most of my time catching up on The Baby-Sitters Club books I haven’t read . . . but I did still read some other books, so I’m still going to do the book meme I’ve done the last two years.
