The Sunday Currently/ 19

 

It’s Christmas day! Merry Christmas everyone! Happy birthday Papa Jesus. Thank you God for bringing Jesus Christ in our lives. Spend this day with the people you love like your family and friends!

CURRENTLY 

Reading
The Christmas greetings from families and friends plus some twitter updates of mi loves. (you already who they are)

Writing
aside from my 19th edition of the Sunday Currently, I hope I could finish the ones in my draft. Lately, I was so lazy witing or my mojo feels is somewhat lost over these past few days. My previously published posts were somewhat shallow. I hope I can recuperate from it. (hahaha like a disease)

Listening

I’m into Bruno Mars nowadays. I just love his voice. But the Versace on the Floor is consistently popping in my head coz it’s the music from our mini reunion trip with friends

Thinking
of my duty this New Year’s break. I will be alone spending the New Years day but no biggie.

Smelling
the mango peach pie I bought from the fastfood chain we went to. Love anything that is mango flavored.

Wishing
for a better and peaceful remaining days of 2016.

Hoping
I could buy the best *toot! I have been wanting this for more than half decade already. That’s how important this to me.

Wearing
my blue spaghetti strap mini dress

Loving

how I spent Christmas today. I may have slept on the actual salubong or the Christmas Eve Noche Buena (it’s already two years in a row. Huhuhu! Here’s the link of my post when I slept from last year https://annjerusalem.wordpress.com/2015/12/24/slept-at-christmas-eve/) but this day is still worthwhile. I am loving the mini reunion with my friends. Thanks to Richie and Mark Lester for initiating the trip.

Wanting
to go somewhere and thanks to my friends for the short trip. We get to bond even if it’s for a short period of time and unplanned. Those unexpected moments are oftentimes the most worthwhile and most memorable.

Needing
a new camera pls…. who’s a Good Samaritan here. I am saving my money for it. Hope I could buy the soonest. I still need this…hahaha (this is my previous need entry)

Feeling
Happy and contented. Christmas is indeed the most wonderful time of the year because of families and friends. I am happy and grateful today.

Have a great remaining days of 2016 guys! Merry Christmas and A Prosperous New Year! May this day serve as a reminder of how God loves us that He gave His only Begotten Son.

The Sunday Currently/ 18

I woke up early this morning for I intended to go out today so, I was able head south. I went there to buy some stuffs for our house and in my course of shopping, I received a text message from my boss informing and instructing me to do something. (I will not tell the details of the instruction for it’s confidential.) Anyways, I was able to buy the things I need to buy and do the things I need to do before doing the said command. I am still happy going home though.

 

CURRENTLY 

Reading
The new Michael Crichton book I bought. It’s already an old book but I love his novels that’s why.

Writing
aside from my 18th edition of the Sunday Currently, I am working on something that you will know in the near future or maybe later if I could finish it the soonest possible.

Listening

 

I love this movie of Ashton Kutcher entitled “A Lot Like Love” and I fell in love with the OST.

Thinking
of how I can collate my thoughts so that I could finish what I have been talking about earlier on writing something.

Smelling
nothing. I have a clogged nose. The unexplained change of weather is making me sick. One moment it’s sunny and in the other moment it’s rainy and even very cold.

Wishing
I could go to Manila this coming month. *fingers-crossed

Hoping
that the monthly compliance will be finished early/ier

Wearing
my navy green spaghetti dress.

Loving

my newly pedicured toe nails. I love nude nail-polish too.

Wanting
to go to Manila. Somebody sponsor my trip..hihihi!

Needing
a new camera pls…. who’s a Good Samaritan here. I am saving my money for it. Hope I could buy the soonest.

Feeling
happy still despite the unexpected compliance earlier but no biggie. I love my work so, I’m still happy.

Have a great week ahead guys! It’s the monthly compliance week for me! Wish me luck that I could finish them with good remarks.

The Sunday Currently/ 17

ann

I am so overwhelmed today due to the piled up paper works that I need to do. My mind wants to burst and my mother is somewhat annoying today for the so many favors she is asking but as they say, a good daughter always follows her parents. So I need to oblige. But earlier this day, I was able to produce a new video in my YT channel with my new loved song entitled Say You Won’t Let Go by James Arthur.

CURRENTLY 

Reading
The PREVIEW magazine with M in the cover. I am looking for a different cover of her with the same issue but as a Team Province, we are again left out and maybe that issue is already sold out so I need to settle to what’s available. I still love it though.

Writing
my 17th edition of the Sunday Currently. Aside from it, I am planning to publish another poem if I could finish it.

Listening

Say You Won’t Let Go by James Arthur

Thinking
of how I can collate my crazy thoughts tonight. I need to finish these paper works. Cramming time again for me.

Smelling
the viand that my mama is cooking. Home made foods are the best.

Wishing
that I could finish all these things on time.

Hoping
to a better and relaxing week ahead. Today is somewhat crazy.

Wearing
my super comfy red spaghetti dress.

Loving

the new cover of M in the Preview Mag.

Wanting
a super cold orange fruit juice. Tonight is kinda hot.

Needing
a new conduction oven and video cam. Santa Claus I need you! Please grant my request please! hehehe!

Feeling
burned out. I need some update from you A&M to better my feelings please!

Have a great week ahead guys! I hope your weekend is better that mine coz as you can tell above I am ranting about me in a not so good mood. I really do hope that this chaos will end the soonest and I will have a better day tomorrow.

The Sunday Currently/ 16

So I was feeling under the weather today. The morning breeze is getting colder and is very good for bed weather so, I stayed most of the hours today in bed. I started my day today publishing a video of M’s poem she posted on May 5, 2014. As I have said in my previous posts, I was binged reading her blog most especially her poetry entries. And I was inspired to make them or turn them into a lyric video and one sample is above.  I also did a short trip up north to buy a cake in celebration to the birthday of my Mama. (I will post a separate blog to this one). It’s been a long time since I updated my Sunday Currently entry and I intended to not really post anything of it this time but since I changed my mind, so, here are my currently things…

CURRENTLY 

Reading
My newly purchased Michael Crichton book entitled Congo. I know that it’s already an old book but I have been collecting novels authored by Michael Crichton. Aside from he’s one of my favorite author, I now have eight books of him and I hope I get to finish this book the soonest possible.

Writing
my 16th edition of The Sunday Currently and my blog about my feelings towards my beloved mother dearest who will be having her birthday tomorrow.

Listening

The noise coming from my brother’s room. He is, I think currently watching his newly downloaded movies and watching it to his DIY projector. He’s very clever when it comes to butingting and everything.

 

Thinking
of a new business to venture with. I have a vacant lot nearby the public market and I am thinking of what my interests are so that the business I am planning will be the ones that I really love.

Smelling
the perfume that my brother sprayed on. I really love the perfume’s chocolatey/vanilla-like smell

Wishing
to meet A&M before this year ends. (finger’s crossed)

Hoping
that my wish will all come true. Many will be saying I’m mababaw with my wish but simple things in life that money can buy, hands can’t hold and can only be felt is what makes me the happiest. To be able to take pictures, make my magazine/book collections signed and just be in contact with A&M will make my life complete (as per today because we’ll never know what will happen tomorrow) finger’s crossed again!

Wearing
a blue floral super comfy pambahay dress

Loving

the new Preview magazine – November ish (which is I am aiming to get one. Team Province is always left out) with you know it already who’s in the cover!

Wanting
to have a new video camera (Santa Claus where are you? Hahaha!!!)

Needing
a rebreather from work but I think it will not come soon because of the so many compliance that the HHQs has been demanding

Feeling
a bit burn out from work but because of my everyday updates on A&M, every stress and tiring day suddenly vanish. They really make a huge impact in my life especially towards happiness and inspiration.

Have a great weekdays ahead y’all! Start the week right with positive mind and right attitude. Spread love and happiness to all the people you meet everyday! *wink and flying kiss to all

Privacy

I was very productive today in different manner. I woke up super early at November 1 not to go to the cemetery but at work. Yeah you heard it right I went at work super early today and you already know why because I have been ranting this every first day of the month but for the benefit of those who don’t know yet, it’s the monthly report day. So I rushed at the office today to finish my compliance with the help of my colleagues. I was also of help to them of course and I’m super happy about that. I was also happy deep down coz my boss appreciated me being kind. I will tell the whole story about it at the right time (naks lakas kong maka-tamang panahon). I was also productive in the sense that I went to buy groceries today. I am a very thoughtful daughter and sister today because I bought all the stuffs they wanted from our basic necessities, their favorite foods etc. After going to the office, I planned to really go to the cemetery, but because when I went to my Aunt’s house and she said that their plan is to go the next day so, I just obliged to go with them tomorrow. Aside from that reason, it’s really raining hard today as in you will be afraid hearing the strong sound of the rainfall. We still have trauma from the past typhoon we experienced so, we are still afraid to the unexpected weather condition. I was also productive in my social media (I think I’m always productive in this side everyday. Let’s just be quiet about it that I included it in here just for the sake of discussion) Yes, I update my social media accounts minute-by-minute today. I enjoy spreading good vibes and teaching about positivity regarding life, family, yourself and love. (Not that I’m an expert at it because I think I have so much more to experience but I try my best and base it from my mistakes, my experiences and other people’s experiences. You may be thinking if what is the connection of this being productive thing to my title privacy? Here comes the answer. 

I was looking for updates on my favorites. And many people were very eager to hunt their so-called whereabouts. We were left from a misunderstanding that’s why we were speculating situations or overthinking things or even became a troll at some point making commentary to the things that didn’t even existed. So I made some rants in my socmed awhile back about privacy or giving our loves some private moments together. Here’s the point I have said.

  1. I don’t understand why us (including me) were very eager to know their whereabouts yet  we also tell them to enjoy their personal trip which means it’s private/ intimate/ secret trip (whatever you call it).
  2. Can’t we just be contented with what they want to share with us?
  3. Can’t we give them the privacy they deserve? I think we can make them happier if we let them be & do the things they want in this trip.
  4. They are flying beneath the radar for the longest and up to this time. This personal trip is their rebreather.
  5. I just give that space for now coz I love them. That’s how unconditional love should be given.
  6. Be happy with their happiness and if their happiness is at least staying away from the spotlight then let’s give it to them. Anyway they have been very generous enough with granting our requests so let’s also grant their request too.

Privacy to them has been very hard especially when they are here in the country. Every streets they pass, every gathering or occasion they attend too, every vacation etc. draws large amount of crowd. They are very generous in attending to the requests of their fans but sometimes we step ahead into the line between their private life to the limelight. Now that they are out of the country and having their so-called personal trip, then they want some private moments wherein they can be their normal selves, they can bond together away from the scrutiny of the people (eventhough their scope of popularity is worldwide that it’s hard not to be identified). They may have some moments now of being relieved from everyone’s eyes that follows their every move. (So give it to them) If I have a superpower and if their wish is to be with each other or be together without fans snooping at them even just for a day, then I will give them the invisibility cloak so that they can roam around, enjoy the things they want to do, just bond and profess whatever they want to profess to each other.

Privacy for me should be respected especially when they request it for you. It may be hard to control as a fan who loves their idol but if you really love them, then you will be the one to give way or succumb to their request. As they say if you love someone, do the things that will make them happy and if that happiness will be granted through us being away at them then so be it.

Happy Halloween guys! (If you’re thinking why is it that my first greeting unto you is about Halloween and my photo above is by far and unconnected. It’s just that I was looking at the photos on my gallery and these what popped-up first. I think these photos are more relevant to us in the North because of the devastation we had to go through to ST Lawin. I took  these photos earlier today when I went south and I saw in my very own eyes how terrible the damage incurred in these places and we’re luckier to have a minor damage in our town. Thank you God. But on a brighter note, the sky is blue and the sun is shining again and the beauty of nature is more appreciated and given importance nowadays. We learned our lesson, “I hope so” to conserve energy, love thy mother earth, significance of planting more trees and making sure that you’re always ready in times of  disaster) Anyway, How was your celebration of the Halloween so far? Well, as for our family, we do not really celebrate it like we had to do costume or attend into a Halloween party or do Trick or Treat. hindi po uso sa amin yan. 

CURRENTLY 

Reading
About the history of Halloween. (By the way, tomorrow October 31 is the real celebration of it)

Writing
my 15th edition of The Sunday Currently

Listening

To different horror stories

Thinking
of how I could easily assemble my newly purchased stand fan. I can’t unscrew the locks.

Smelling
nothing. I have a clogged nose because of the change of weather

Wishing
that I could be of help to the people struck by ST Lawin.

Hoping
to a more productive weekdays and less stressful workload

Wearing
my colorful duster.

Loving

my braided hair and how it naturally curls my hair when I  untie it

Wanting
to buy a new camera. (may Santa Claus ba dyan?)

Needing
an exercise. My mama is already worried that I’m getting fatter everyday. (E, masarap kumain e. Excuse! Excuse! Excuse!)

Feeling
happy coz I got a copy of the Mega and Garage Magazine with A&M on the cover. (Next target is the Preview and Style Weekend hehehe)

 

Have a meaningful observance of the All Saints’ and All Souls’ Day everyone. Dalawin po natin ang mga mahal natin sa buhay na namayapa na. Baka tayo ang dalawin nila. hahaha!!! On a serious note, have a safe visit to the grave of our beloved departed and don’t forget to say a prayer for them.

presentation1

Hey! Hey! Hey! It’s Sunday again and we still don’t have current (power lines are still on the process of repair and they are saying that the estimated date is until the 29th)  and our communication lines were still unstable (one of the cellular sites just got back after two days after being interrupted) but I made myself very productive today because I was able to update my blog despite our situation. I am actually updating this one in the middle of the dark night because our generator ran out of gasoline. We need to wait until there’s available to fill the tank of  the generator. These were some of the aftermath of supertyphoon Lawin. Before I do my currentlies, I just want to state what happened to me after the storm. There’s a positive turnout from the catastrophe that we just experienced. I was away from work and was able to bond with my families in mother side. I was able to travel different municipalities and enjoy myself chatting with my cousins, having a movie marathon with them and more chikas. There’s a positive outcome from the challenge that we faced. Literally, as the song says, “there’s always a rainbow after the rain.”

CURRENTLY 

Reading
The #ALDUBWedding write-ups. It makes you feel how love is despite being loveless.

Writing
aside from my 14th edition of the Sunday currently, I was able to write my experience from the Super-typhoon Lawin and of course the #ALDUBWedding that happened just yesterday (by the way I didn’t write much on it because I want the videos to speak for itself)

Listening

to She Used to be Mine by Sara Bareilles. I felt like this song just describes me. So much feels. Just listen unto it to know what I mean. Aside from it, my ears were irritated to the sound of the generator

Thinking
of when will the power lines be fixed. I am already a refuge to my aunt’s house and I am thinking of what was their feelings towards it.

Smelling
awful smell of the gasoline from our generator.

Wishing
all is well that ends well from the people devastated by Lawin.

Hoping
that all the challenges that the people who were struck by the typhoon could overcome it and this will serve as a vehicle to move on/ move forward and hope for a brighter tomorrow.

Wearing
my checkered shorts and pink shirt.

Loving

my aunt’s generosity of letting me stay in their house and charge all the gadgets I have. I was able to do these updating staffs because I have enough batteries and power supply to back it up.

Wanting
a fresh new start for everyone.

Needing
my wi-fi so that I could do the staff I was doing everyday.

Feeling
a bit sad because of what happened to us. I am also happy despite the calamity we faced because we are still alive.

Have a great weekday ahead! I hope our power supply will be back the soonest and stay safe wherever you may be. I will be going to work again tomorrow and good luck to me.

The Sunday Currently/ 13

sunday-currently-13

Hey! Hey! Hey! It’s Sunday again and it’s already super late. Probably publishing this a Monday already. I need not to be awake late because, eventhough it was announced earlier tonight that all classes were suspended, still it has no bearing for me because of two points: 1) I am not already studying or no student anymore 2) I am working in an organization that prioritizes emergency situation. These mean that I need to wake up early tomorrow (Tomorrow! Tomorrow! I love yah Tomorrow! to the tune of Annie. hahaha!) But I want to share the good vibes that happened to me this day. I woke up early morning to go to the north and when I was on my way there, I bump into an old man (my uncle by the way) it was raining hard and I who has an umbrella was able to share it with my uncle. It’s been so long ago since I was able to talk to him and this was my chance to have a catch up to what’s happening in his life. After this unexpected bond with my uncle, I met a woman who was handling a very heavy water dispenser. I helped her carry the dispenser to her car and seeing her smile towards me made my feeling uplifted. This day is a better day than ever….

CURRENTLY 

Reading
My previous Sunday Currently posts.

Writing
My thirteenth edition of the Sunday currently and at the same time, finishing some stuff that you will learn Sa Tamang Panahon. Naks! Kalyeserye is back and the terms I am using is sort of I got it from KS of course and I’m the happiest

Listening

To new version of My Guardian Angel. Thanks for the heart-wrenching and heartwarming rendition of this song A. My favorite line would be…

I will never let you fall (let you fall)
I’ll stand up with you forever
I’ll be there for you through it all (through it all)
Even if saving you sends me to heaven

‘Cause you’re my, you’re my, my, my true love, my whole heart
Please don’t throw that away
‘Cause I’m here for you
Please don’t walk away and
Please tell me you’ll stay, whoa, stay, whoa

Thinking
So many things right now but my priority is on how I can see them personally. I am having a hard time and somewhat upset/frustrated because I wasn’t able to go to the #AldubNationFest2016. I was able to get an e-ticket to the said occasion but my line of work doesn’t permits me and I also have no courage of doing things all alone. My sense of dependency to my parents always get me and this is the weakness that I cannot control ever since.

Smelling
the scent of M from bench. I love spraying it on my room.

Wishing
That the plans I am making in my head will turn into reality *fingers’ crossed.

Hoping
for a stronger and more independent me in the coming days and months and forever. I am such a weakling and I hope that I can come out to that shell.

Wearing
my pambahay shorts and an Aldub shirt from the IYAM giveaway that I received

Loving
the Livestreaming of the #ALDUBNationFest2016 . Eventhough I wasn’t able to attend the said occasion, I get to watch what is actually happening in the SMX. Seeing A&M attend and being very generous to their fans through having pictures with them and do autograph signing and treating us like their friends or making us feel how important us to them. I am loving, loving, loving it!!! And I love them both.

Wanting
to sleep early tonight but my sense of eagerness/happiness doesn’t allow me. I am still kilig to A&M especially the beso, mano and hug of M to A’s family and of course how will I forget the statement of A kissing M in their wedding. You’ll understand what I am talking about if you watch the ADNFest2016.

Needing
nothing right now. I am still elated on how fast are the turnout of events these past few days. I don’t feel like I need anything as of the moment. (Except enough sleep pala)

Feeling
Happy talaga as in. My upset/frustrated moment a little while ago is officially gone. Thanks to A&M for always making my bad days into good days, my sad days into happy days and my loveless days into kilig days.

That’s it, pancit! Hope you guys had a great week ahead! Stay safe and dry coz after Ty Karen, the PAGASA is seeing Lawin entering our PAR. have a cozy and sweet night everyone. As for me, I hope I get to sleep …

The Sunday Currently/ 12

It’s been very long time since I update my Sunday currently. I’m baaaaccckkkk! How time flies right? We were almost half way of October. My weekends for the past weeks have been very laid back. Just like today, I end up staying and chilling at home, appreciating the simplicity of life and enjoying my short weekend staycation. But beforehand this rest day, I went through a very stressful workload, concerning the problems of other. I just hope this will end in a positive note and we can solve in a peaceful way.

CURRENTLY

READING

Tweets of the launching of A’s Album, their kulitan with M in IG, his having a Diamond Record Award. You’ll understand what I’m saying if you have read my previously published post. Hahaha!

WRITING

My 12th edition of the Sunday Currently. But aside from that, I’m planning to write my thoughts on the pros & cons of being a millennial or the social media per se.

LISTENING

To the featured rap artist in KMJS now. These kids are really great at singing their hearts out through their rap song. Despite their unfortunate condition, they have their talents to back them up. I hope our country will have programs that will support talented kids that will hone and improve their capabilities. I am also thrilled when I heard the newest version of My Guardian Angel. I need to have a copy of that!

THINKING

Of what to do tomorrow. It’s workday weekday again tomorrow. As what I have said awhile ago, I’m also collating my thoughts now on my next publish post.

SMELLING

Aside from the perfume that was given to me last week by my cousin, I’m also liking the smell of my hands enjoying my Cheetos Cheddar Jalapenos.. Thanks to M, I got curious to the taste and now I’m enjoying not only the taste but also the smell.

WISHING

To have a baking appliances, tools and ingredients. I’m planning to bake the cakes I want because I love giving cakes. I know the basic steps of making cakes and I want to improve that skill of mine. I also want to make a personalized cake for my families during special occasions that’s why.

HOPING

That my decision in life of staying with my family is the right decision. I am having second thoughts of what if I pursue a career abroad, what would life be like for me? But at the back of my mind, my heart is at peace with being beside them and that’s what I’m holding on whenever I am having doubts.

WEARING

My blue spaghetti strap dress.

LOVING

The new cover of A & M in Mega magazine. I need to buy the print issue of it.

WANTING

To go to the ADN fest. I have an FB friend who is currently attending the launching of A’s newest album and I felt a bit of jealousy. I also want to see them (A&M) personally and I don’t know when or how will that happen. Next week will be the fest, I have ticket for one and unfortunately, I can’t go because I don’t have the guts and my family wouldn’t allow too…

NEEDING

Some exercise. My mother is now bothered on how I gain a lot of weight.

Double chin pa more.

FEELING

Bloated and heavy. Yes I admit it now that I am super big that my clothes are very tight to wear now. I just need more encouragement char. I also feel kilig with the little conversation of A&M in IG post.

Have a great week ahead!!! If you’re going to work or school or just in your house, I hope that all of us have a brighter and positive outlook ahead of us. Have a great week ahead! Let’s exercise or should I say I need to exercise and I have to do it now before I regret in the future.

I SEE THE REAL YOU

Worthy to republish and I quote from https://twitter.com/mainedcm/status/777110562882715649

I do not care if people get so repulsed by you. I see you–the real you–even if the world does not. #TangongGrasa 

“In a world full of reel, I still see the real me”

As long as you know in your heart who the real you, then you can ignore those who consistently repulsing you, let them be, but just don’t let them get in to you.

The picture says that you are now being idolized, you serve as an inspiration and behind that, or equals that, there are the trolls that want to put you down, there are people that will destroy you. But despite that situation of your life, you remain constant to your own self, you are still you, you are still grounded by your values and you still see the real you.

The picture also depicts that there are two sides of you. One is what the people see about you and the other is how you remain true to yourself despite the notion of other unto you.
