My June 2017 Playlist!

It’s the last day of the month so it’s time to share the tunes that I were into!

This month saw me driving alone for the first time so of course I had around an hour of alone time in the car at least three days a week. Which means most of the songs here are the ones played on the radio so a lot of EDM, which honestly I don’t really listen to slash seek out? But since listening to the radio calms me down while driving (I AM VERY PANICKY BUT THEN AGAIN, DUH, I AM AN ANXIOUS PERSON), I chose to tune in to the station that plays current pop songs. I end up belting and singing along too much when I tune in to the ~oldies~ station that I get distracted from driving? Maybe I can finally tune in to the classics when I become better at driving. Hehe. (In other news, I over-reversed last night and banged my car on a wall. Damn.)

Anyway, here it is!

Even though LANY just released their debut album today, it has a lot of LANY tracks because I LOVE LANY AND I’M SO HAPPY THAT WE HAVE NEW SONGS!!! And of course I also love Mating Ritual and he finally released his debut album so YAAAAAAAS HE’S HERE DEF.

I practically put all of the songs Justin Bieber and Demi Lovato are featured on this playlist. And ugh, Selena Gomez with Bad Liar, I tried so hard to resist it but it’s so addicting! Anyway, favorite discovery is Daniel Caesar’s Get You featuring Kali Uchis, all thanks to Sarah. And Lou Lou by Albin Lee Meldau care of Dawn.

Sadly, no Bleachers because I gave up halfway with the album. It just wasn’t clicking with me. Maybe next month I’ll try listening to it again and maybe I’ll end up liking it better?

Hope you enjoy! And do share songs you think I should listen to!


KDrama Review: W-Two Worlds

I finished this drama in only four days and given the limitations of my watching schedule, that was quick. In fact, I didn’t go to work last Wednesday just so I can finally binge it until the end. (What can I say, I excel in truancy!)  W-Two Worlds was exhilarating, but confusing. And I knew I was being manipulated (FEEL THIS! FEEL THAT! BE SHOCKED! ANOTHER TWIST/PROBLEM JUST SO I CAN THROW YOU IN FOR A LOOP!) but I was complicit in the manipulation. I knew it had faults but I was too into knowing what will happen next that I didn’t mind the things (everything!) being glossed over. And here I am trying to make sense of what I really feel about it. Do I like it? Do I hate that it pulled a bag of tricks on me and then left me hanging? (I won’t be careful about spoilers so read at your own risk!) Continue reading →

Your love was handmade for somebody like me

This post has been sitting in my drafts for so long I almost ended up not writing it because it’s not relevant to my headspace anymore. But when I was about to delete the draft, I felt sad (and mostly like I’d disappoint Jay because I told her I’ll write it) and now here we are, spouting possible word vomit. You’ve been warned. (Jay, you’ve been warned. Nothing fruitful in here.) Continue reading →

National Book Store’s #ReadOutLoudChallenge: Two Boys Kissing by David Levithan

Happy 75th Anniversary, National Book Store!

And to celebrate their anniversary, National Book Store is promoting reading and literacy in the country by the Read Out Loud Challenge! What is it, you ask?

With every 75 videos of people reading their favorite line/s from their favorite book/s posted on Instagram and/or Facebook, the National Book Store Foundation will help establish a library in public schools all over the Philippines!

Here I am doing the challenge and reading from Two Boys Kissing by David Levithan. I had this book tabbed with so many quotable passages that it was so hard to choose just one. And it’s just so apt for June because it’s Pride Month!

I hope you’ll do the challenge as well and help National Book Store build libraries! My non-Filipino/Philippine-based readers, please do participate too! You’d be helping Filipino kids a lot!
