Walk Through Time | March Playlist

Studio 3, UST Conservatory of Music

Initially, I thought I'd do a playlist every two months but seeing as to my current playlist has already more than fifty songs, I'm gonna do it monthly or just when the music strikes.

March playlist is somehow the same with the first one I posted but it's less indie more retro 70s to early 2000s. Here, I included ABBA songs because I love ABBA sooo much. I grew up listening to their songs whenever we sang karaoke, my aunties always sang their songs. I also somehow developed a 70s and 80s Guilty Pleasures Playlist that I'm gonna share some other time cause I'm still trying to gather all those songs that I sing and listen to when I was a kid, especially the ones my dad sings (I love my dad's voice).

favourites from this playlist:

Fools in Love - Inara George
Our Last Summer - ABBA 
Honey Honey - ABBA
A Team - Birdy
Blue Bayou - Linda Ronstadt
Stan - Eminem
Cruisin' - Huey Lewis & Gwyneth Paltrow 
Car Radio - Twenty One Pilots
Hello - Evanesence
Goodbye Days - Yui

So, what songs have you been loving lately?

five-forty eight


I’m writing this down before I forget again. I’m scared that if I don’t and won’t, I might not write it at all.

I checked the clock and the calendar a while ago, it’s 5:48. And it’s been one year, three months, and one week today since I left.

Have you moved on? Have you found someone new? I’m saying that I hope you do but deep inside, I don’t mean it. I miss you. And it’s so greedy that I want you to wait for me even though I might not come back. I want you to wait for me. I want you to tell me that you love me, when most of the time, I don’t even know you.

But its 5:48 and I remember everything – how we met, how we fell in love.

It’s 5:48 and I’m listening to the song you made for me. The song you always sing whenever we fought, whenever we broke up, and you want to make up. For our four years, seven months, and three week long relationship, we broke up eighteen times, and made up for seventeen. That was just how we were, that’s just how we roll. We fight, we break up, we make up, we fall deeper in love.

Arthur, I want to go back home... to you. I want to sing you that song and never leave.

I don’t want to be sick anymore. I don’t want to wonder why I feel sand and giddy at the same time whenever your song plays on the radio. I don’t to just remember you for five minutes and question why I’m crying when time runs out.

I don’t want to be scared of the fact that I might not remember you at all.

Arthur, I still play your songs sometimes. Other times that I do, I surprise myself that I could even play. I play and sing along even though I don’t know you. It’s crazy.

Arthur, time’s running out. I can feel it. Maybe someday, I can go back home – to you. Maybe I could write you another letter.

Arthur, its 5:48 and I’m listening to the song you made, I’m singing the lyrics we wrote. I’m singing our love story.

Arthur, I love you. Always and forever. I love you.

Hello Arthur, I’m writing this down before I forget again, I’m scared that if I don’t

Arthur, who are you?

Why am I writing to you?

Who are you?

Why am I writing to you?

This one is one of my favourite favourite works and I don't know why. Maybe it's because I've been wanting to write something that was inspired by something so unusually usual. The title was supposed to be 8:11 since I tend to check the time at that moment. Weirdly enough, I got attached to the time in some way. Anyway, I got stuck with the title 5:48 since I wrote the letter during that time.

Maybe it's one of my favourite works because it's something that could have this long story behind it and sometimes, I imagine scenarios that'd fit with the letter. Like how the girl's forgetful since the start of the story until she forgets everything and remember the person she loves from for a certain amount of time.

girly things #1

Since my senior year I've somehow been sucked into the world of beauty. I don't really know why but it's just... girly. So here's like a replacement for monthly beauty favourites since I use the same things for months and months until I have money to repurchase that thing or try a new product. 
Girly things would focus on well... girly things like makeup, skin care stuff, and hair care stuff. Mostly makeup though.

Hell Week, The First Wave

One of the main reasons why I've been so AWOL on the blogging world is because of college and the terror called exams.

Anyway, exam week just ended and I got most of my results, though I have to say that I'm flunking Statistics. I don't hate the subject, I'm not horrible at it, but whenever there's an exam, my brain doesn't seem to work. Most of my exam results are fairly good, I did get what I deserve (got low ones on the subjects that I didn't study for)


  •  SAT  . 030516 - QUIZ
  •  TUE  . 030816 - QUIZ
  • THUR . 031016 - POETRY ASSIGNMENT -- I did a three part poem for this that's more than three hundred words. I'm so proud of myself! 
  • SAT . 031216 - ANOTHER MAJOR EXAM (SOCIOLOGY) AND QUIZ ON THE SAME DAY... (*sobs in Italian*)
  • MON . 031416 - STATISTICS QUIZ - I'm gonna ace this one! I messed up this one. (*weeps in Japanese*)
  • TUE 031516 - HISTORY EXAM - I did good on this one
  • WED 031616 - STATISTICS EXAM - I lost my soul on this one (*kills self in Filipino*)
  • THUR 031716 - ENGLISH AND FILIPINO EXAM - no results on these ones yet / MOVED ASIAN MAJOR EXAM - also no results yet
  • FRI 031816 - BIOLOGY EXAM - didn't study for this one but barely passed (26/50)

So that's been my life for the past week and I'm still alive. And we've been granted a week's holiday for Holy Week and that means I can catch up on my favourite TV shows and books and manga and anime and just have my life back

I just realised that I didn't post any musing last Monday, so here's one of my recent works. 


So sad it is
For never will they
Cross paths, even not
Tomorrow. Today. Yesterday. 

And also I bought a new journal for my writings, though my other one is not yet full, but soon enough it will. 

Have you written anything lately?

In New Light

February ended a lot of days ago and I was supposed to post this on the 18th but (insert some lame excuse here) I spent my days on bed, or on the couch, reading or sleeping.

Last February 18th, I turned 18 years old, I'm now a legal adult and old enough to go to jail. Oddly, I spent my 18th birthday unlike any other Filipino who celebrate theirs with a debutante's party which is something like a sweet 16, or something. I spent mine in a bowling alley with my closest friends (my best friends didn't come but I'm still hoping to have a date with them in the future). And at night, I had a lovely dinner with my family.

I really don't have a lot to say regarding this but thank you to all those people who are just there to support me. My parents, siblings, my best friends, my godparents... just all of those people who contributed to making who I am now.
