School Supplies Haul 2017

I know this blog post is a bit late, a month late haha!! But it’s better late than never. So here’s a glimpse of some of my school supplies haul for this academic year. 

I haven’t really bought a lot of things because I still have a bunch of school supplies from last year. And since I am in grade 12, I don’t really have that much things to bring or things that I need at school as much as the things I needed back in junior high school. 

I actually bought a rim of bond papers but I was too lazy to get it upstairs so here’s a pack of A4 and graphing paper for our Physics and Entrepreneurship subjects, also a pad of yellow paper for school activities. I also bought another pad of ‘Stuffs to do on Filipino Time’ from “Quote ang Quote”. 

I bought highlighters!! The Stabilo Swing Cool highlighters in yellow, pink and blue are my old highlighters from last year, while I bought the six pastel stabilo highlighters this year. I really wanted those highlighters since last year, but apparently, it wasn’t available on nearby national bookstores until last month. So I was really happy to finally get these highlighters on hand!! 

My Cattleya binder is from last year, because we weren’t allowed to use fillers until grade 11. I don’t want to buy a new one since I could still use my last year’s so what I just bought are fillers. I also bought a pair of protractors for our Physics class, as well as a new ruler.

I bought an Oxford notebook in pink for my reviewer, and a Victoria Journal in silver just for my journal hehe! My Sharp calculator is definitely old, I’ve bought it when I was still in grade 7. Also, an Elmer’s glue stick because it’s a must! My scissors are given by my friend in grade 10. 

I bought the pastel pink clearbook last year as well, while I bought the clipboard last month, though I haven’t really used it for its purpose haha! I bought it because it’s cute!!

Well, it’s not much. This is all that I bought and will use for this academic year! Hope it could help 🙂 

Intramuros

I’ve always wanted to visit intramuros because of its beauty and its historical value. Finally, it has been checked off my list! 

It is my first time exploring the walled city last May. I was excited for our tour that I forgot to read beforehand. Though I know a bunch of things about it. Intramuros is the historic core of Manila, it is a latin word which literally means “within the walls”. Everything inside the walls is Manila, everything outside is considered a province. 

We didn’t had the chance to actually explore outisde Fort Santiago because we took a grab all the way there and we had no time to check out the Casa Manila nor take a calesa. But it was still as fun, and there will always be a next time. I would love to come back tho!

Let’s get wasted and hook up!

Well, that is all for our mini trip inaide Fort Santiago. Looking forward to visit it the second time!!

“You are all the colors in one, at full brightness.”
“We do not remember days, we remember moments.”
“You saved my life, why couldn’t I save yours?”

After reading How to Love by Katie Cotugno, which I haven’t created a review yet oops haha, I was scrolling on my ebook library and I was trying my best to find a new read that would spark my interest as I stumble upon All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven.

Lately, I spent most of my time scrolling and reading posts from one blog to another, yes, almost the whole summer break. And I am clearly obsessed with blogs, especially those who are about fashion, lifestyle and of course travel. In fact, it was one of the reasons why I wanted to start a blog, I was inspired by most Filipino bloggers like the blogger besties, ViVid, etcetera. Of course, I have my favorites but one of the first blogs I followed was the Thirstythought by Kryz Uy.  Continue reading “Style Peg: Kryz Uy”

Landline by Rainbow Rowell

Georgie McCool knows her marriage is in trouble; it has been in trouble for a long time. She still loves her husband, Neal, and Neal still loves her, deeply — but that almost seems beside the point now. Maybe that was always beside the point.

Two days before they’re supposed to visit Neal’s family in Omaha for Christmas, Georgie tells Neal that she can’t go. She’s a TV writer, and something’s come up on her show; she has to stay in Los Angeles. She knows that Neal will be upset with her — Neal is always a little upset with Georgie — but she doesn’t expect him to pack up the kids and go home without her. When her husband and the kids leave for the airport, Georgie wonders if she’s finally done it. If she’s ruined everything.

That night, Georgie discovers a way to communicate with Neal in the past. It’s not time travel, not exactly, but she feels like she’s been given an opportunity to fix her marriage before it starts… Is that what she’s supposed to do?

Or would Georgie and Neal be better off if their marriage never happened? Continue reading “Landline by Rainbow Rowell”
