One of the plants in front of our house bloomed a beauty last midyear break, and I think it deserved a photo. Now, I think it deserves to be appreciated with a blog post. Also, good job, Mom! You did a nice job in taking care of the plants! 🙂
On my last birthday, I received a wonderful self-portrait from one of my awesome and friendly colleagues. It was an honor to be drawn by her because she is one of the graphic artists of the school’s paper aka UPLB Perspective! I felt touched and overjoyed on the day when I saw her gift. Truly, I am surrounded by wonderful people. Thank you so much, Juvelle!
This was the time when Linnaeus (my section when I was a high school sophomore) had a special reunion in Enchanted Kingdom. Yes, flying fiesta made me dizzy, but it was fun!
Alpha’s Way of Covering

They told me to smile often so my insecurity won’t obviously show.
I don’t think that I have to smile anymore. My sleek and on-point hair shows how I sway off the situations that bother me. My pointy stilettos make fearful sounds that alarm the people who work under my company.
However, my gloves cannot hide the truth of how a wife fights for her wants. The blood stains were removed, but the residues lingered in my thoughts.
These thoughts were once real; but now, they are just evaporated plans for my husband’s naughty mistress to prove that murdering is winning.
Midyear break is about to start for me and this blog will become active again. I promise to update this blog with artworks that I am planning to make after I finish my school requirements. All will be well and this blog will be filled with colors again.
This post makes it look like I have lots of time to splash in the waves of the beaches in our country, but the truth is, I still have classes until May (and I do not have the money, okkk). So I grabbed the opportunity to embrace the time that I had in the beach when I went to one of my best friend’s debut.
In this photo, I like how the tiny boat is facing towards us + the lights trying to escape from the tiny gaps between the clouds.
It was surprising to know that this floating rest house can move because I thought it was static.
A candid scene in a beautiful place is a beautiful view to photograph. It gives story to a blank picture.
Indeed, going to the beach with the right people was a fun experience and we’re aiming to do this again someday. However, reality is crawling on my doorway. I still have to finish few requirements to ace this semester!
Since then, I have an affinity for taking pictures of the sky.
Indeed, it is relaxing to look at these photos.
Let me present to you, Princess Mononoke, and my old betta fish (nope, not Bubba) coming out of my old Game Boy Advance SP!
These works were done during the semestral (please let me use this word, sorry) break and let me just say, I got really inspired to draw again because I have watched most of Mary Doodles and Doodle Date’s videos. Sometimes when I am out of creative juice, I watch videos of few artists on YouTube and gladly, it helps! It helps me get going on the road! It informs me that, still, I have a long way to go in the world of arts and crafts! Having a day full of videos from Mary Doodles, Doodle Date, Lizzie’s a Lefty, etc. gives me a lot of reasons to hone my skills in drawing.
But why did I draw Princess Mononoke? I watched her movie and of course, it amazed me. I turned into an instant fan after watching it because I saw the beauty of how fluid the story has become.
But why did I draw my old betta fish coming out of my old Game Boy Advance SP? Simple, it reminds me of how precious my childhood was when I was a third grader (I was about to turn into a fourth-grader that time, though). We all have golden childhood memories. I represent mine with this doodle.
Come to think of it, my first stay in the campus was not easy. Experiencing an easy type of stress (because according to the upperclassmen, more is yet to come) was frightening, and I thought I was not going to come out alive. But lo and behold, I am still breathing and living!
However, I won’t conclude anything yet because I still have seven semesters (hopefully) to go in the university. May the semesters go well (meaning, to pass everything) and the odds be ever in my favor (hi Effie).
Note: This is based on what I understood when I watched the play.
Apparently, Orasa is an hourglass. An hourglass is shaped like a number eight and it is covered on both sides so the sand inside won’t spill. Its primary purpose is to tell time; not the exact time but the time that passed away. By turning an hourglass upside down, the sands will fall from the upper cylindrical space into the bottom part. Once the sands are gone from the upper part, it means that an hour passed since the time you turned it. By applying it, the two-part scenarios in the play represent the two-part spaces of an hourglass. Since time is passing in an hourglass, the two-part scenarios come from two different time frames which are from the past and in the present time. The application was wise and I am fully impressed. Although, it took time to make me realize that the play in a nut shell is an hourglass, literally. This creativity should be applauded and appreciated. But what do the two time frames represent? Simply, they represent how a person falls in love with a person.
In the first part of the play, their cultural and generational decency is a trademark of what happened in the past if a person falls in love with another one. It’s the typical boy-meets-girl scene, but he can’t confess his love for the girl because of sheer shyness, nervousness, and doubting. Fortunately, the boy confessed his love (more…)
