Weekly Recap 1

Weekly Recap 1 |

Hello! I’m still here!

This post was supposed to go up yesterday but I just couldn’t be bothered to do anything but huddle under the covers. Anyway, for 2017, I thought of doing a weekly recap— very similar to Life Lately but with some sort of structure. It’s a little less formal than normal blog posts and whole lot more personal!

My face @ the proposed vanity tax

On Monday, I took the day off since I had worked over the weekend (but we were in Cebu, hiking, so I ain’t complaining) and spent the day sleeping off some feelings and playing VR games on Karlo’s Vive. It was a good day except for that part where I wasted money and skipped my back to back rowing and cycling classes.

Tuesday was my first day back at Saddle Row and my first official workout of the year. I took a cycling class and thought I was going to get an asthma attack from all the cigarettes I smoked over the holidays. I also spent a good chunk of the day obsessively checking flights and AirBNB properties to a dream destination and I was thisclose to booking airline tickets but decided to hold off for a bit while I save more money. IT WILL HAPPEN THIS YEAR, THOUGH!

I woke up on Wednesday with pain on my outer left hip which oddly went away after my Circuit Rowing class. Do any of you experience daily body pain? I swear to god, ageing sucks. My lower back always hurts and I deal with random body aches every now and then.

Thursday was A GREAT DAY because I finally found a forever home for one of my foster kittens! I don’t think I ever mentioned it on my blog but last August, I rescued six lil kittens from a garbage drum in Intramuros and have been fostering four of them since (1 died— RIP Harry— and 1 disappeared huhu I miss you, Rupert). Fatty Cat, one of the gray tabbies, will be going to his new home/human soon. I also went rowing and had a near meltdown afterwards because of silly self-imposed dietary restrictions.

Friday was glorious because I decided to stay home and spend the day with the cats and cleaning out my room. Karlo and I went to Buen Comer for dinner and I watched Gilmore Girls the rest of the evening. Why did I not get into this show when it first aired 17 years ago?!

On Saturday, Cheeky Cat got adopted! My bro of bros, Jonax, took in the lil guy and I am so excited for the two of them to get to know each other and stuff. ♥ BY THE WAY, if anyone wants an orange tabby, let me know because I have two! :) I also went to H&M Home and bought a mirror for my room.

Sunday was spent recovering from the night before and watching more Gilmore Girls. Karlo helped me spray paint my tiny table and I can’t wait for the brick foams I bought from eBay to arrive so I can cover my ugly patchy off-white walls AND MAKE THINGS PRETTY.

Hope you guys are doing great! :)

    I feel the same way about Gilmore Girls! I only started watching a few weeks ago! They have the wittiest scriptwriters!

    Your room looks great! My room has ugly blue-green walls that my parents won’t let me have repainted because it’s not yet chipping off :( Please give your thoughts on the brick foams, would love to see how it works. :D

      Are your walls dark? I think dark walls can look good!
