Of Being Alone

23 Things Only People Who Love Spending Time Alone Will Understand

I saw this post lately on Facebook by a friend, and most of the things listed are totally me. Maybe not all. But most. And I'd like to mention the following:
#1 - A weekend in which you have no plans, no responsibilities, and nowhere at all to be, ranks as one of the best weekends you’ll ever have. - I mean, not that I'm antisocial or anything. There are really those weekends when I just want to be alone.
#3 - A good album, book, or television show can keep your attention far longer than any party, club, or bar could. - CSI, Grimm, #Richkids of Beverly Hills, Keeping up with the Kardashians, The Big Bang Theory, Friends. I can go on and on and on. I love watching tv shows. Probably my favorite pasttime if you ask me.
#5 -  There is nothing more exciting than planning a long, solo road trip, because you know you’re going to be able to think your thoughts, listen to your music, and play your audiobooks for hours and hours on end. Is there anything better? - Even just the though of it is so relaxing.
#6 - When people say they can’t eat alone at a restaurant, you’re like, really? That’s one of life’s simple pleasures! Food? Good. A book? Good. No conversation whatsoever? Perfect. - Already in my bucketlist.
#15 - You are an observer –watching and studying people’s behavior– and, funny enough, are usually quite well-liked, which can serve to be a problem considering how much time you want to spend by yourself. - You can't even fathom the depth of my thoughts when I observe the people around me. I remember once when I was eating alone in a fastfood restaurant, and all the creative words and ideas just come to my head.
#16 - A full day by yourself makes you feel more you than anything at all. - THIS! LIKE, THIS, OMG!
#17 - If you are not thinking about life’s big questions, you must be dead. - Every time I'm alone, there are these random thoughts inside my head that when I arrive home, all of them, gone.
#22 - Traveling to a new place by yourself (even if the new place is only ten miles away) is your idea of a great time. You are always either planning a solo adventure, going on a solo adventure, or coming back from one. Experiencing the world through your own eyes without anybody else’s opinion is not just a desire, it’s an essential need of yours. - Not that I don't want to be with anyone on a long vacation trip, I just like to explore the world alone. It's calming for me. More time to think. More time to hear myself mumble on the greatness of the world I'm in.

Intramurals Shirt - designed by Amyl Ortiz | White Jeans | Black Denim Doll Shoes

Let me start this post by reiterating what is written in our "beloved"-by-all Intramurals shirt. Not that I'm bragging or anything tho. JPIA: Continuing Legacy Towards Supremacy. It's not the typical org shirt that we buy. It's something so wearable in any occasion. For the first time in 3 years, I shall be wearing an org shirt during a washday. I have never worn an org shirt on a washday - like ever - just because I don't like wearing them on washdays. My mindset is that once it's worn on a JPIA event, it's going to be worn on that day only, and never will I be seen wearing it in public anymore. It's just my preference.

So my original plan for this post is to take a bunch of solo photos because I love sporting our shirt. Unfortunately, my camera's battery went empty and the other battery got lost somewhere. Yes, I lost my other camera battery along with the charger. So boo me for being such a klutz. (NEED. TO. BUY. ANOTHER. BATTERY. PLUS CHARGER. ASAP.) Now, I am left with a handful of candid photos which I am not really feeling but whatever. Just gotta have to work with what I have.

Next time, I should be mindful of all my things.

Another White Post

I usually do my own make-up when I go out. So as you can see, I'm still in the process of learning...
Wanted to achieve that blogger post I've seen in one of the magazines I bought, obviously, I didn't nail it. Boo me now. I can take it. This is quite embarrassing really, my friend took this shot in a dining hall. *face palm* But whatever, I have no other better outfit photo than this one and the one before this. I just have to deal with it.

PJ's Birthday Celebration

Having no proper breakfast (which is totally a no no for me), I unintentionally starved myself for one of my best buddies birthday celebration. We had lunch at Kuya J's Restaurant.
I actually like their interior. It has a relaxing feels.
We ordered Pork Ribs.
Creamy Seafood and Corn Soup and Crispy Pata which I failed to photograph because I was too busy eating. (Sorry for the mess #sorrynotsorry)
A group photo is always a must whenever we go out. That's a typical teenage stuff.
I am not a writing a review about the restaurant so as not to cause any unwanted issues.

I really wanted to take blog-worthy pictures but my "photographer" in the name of Trisha Mae Nunez wasn't with me today, so I had to settle for my best bud, Pj. These photos aren't so bad actually, I just didn't particularly like them.
