I am a little frazzled today; it’s a Friday and I am strapped for time. I have rehearsals at 7pm tonight (all the way in Makati… and the John Mayer concert is tonight, too! Can you imagine the heavy traffic I’ll have to sit through?) and I still have to go back home (Quezon City) to get my shoes. Days like this, I wish I lived in a bike-able city so I could whiz through traffic and get some exercise while at it. Unfortunately, I risk respiratory diseases, dying, and maybe even getting mugged.
It was raining when I left for work this morning so I happily donned gray tights and my thrifted ridiculous knit sweater.
Lazy outfit!: my brother’s white shirt and herbench (lol, I know) jeggings/knit jeans. I am aware that my shoes are mismatched; I was undecided, was in a hurry, and needed to take photos. I ended up leaving the house with the yellow pair (from tOnic at The Ramp).
I decided to stay in Friday and ended up missing a fun night at Cubao X with my friends (you don’t have to watch the video. I mean, it’s fourteen minutes long for chrissakes lol). Unfortunately, I will have to keep passing up on Friday nights out due to Insanity.
Not a lot of photos for today as I’m in a hurry. I have an appointment at 4pm and I still have a handful of things to do. Saturday: dinner with friends at Flaming Wings, hanging out at National Bookstore’s Young Adult section (we were drawn in by Halloween decorations and led christmas lights on sale), hanging out at Tin‘s with Jewel, hanging out at RA‘s with Tin, Jewel, and Jason. As always, Sunday was spent hungover and lazing about.
My mess of a table.
100 Best First Lines from Novels. One of my favorite novels is at #4:
Many years later, as he faced the firing squad, Colonel Aureliano Buendia was to remember that distant afternoon when his father took him to discover ice. -Gabriel Garcia Marquez, One Hundred Years of Solitude
All you need to know about having a pet meerkat. Random, I know, but I had a thing for meerkats yesterday so I looked up how to go about acquiring one as a pet. Oh well, it’s okay.

Looking for Alaska is about 16-year old Miles Halter leaving his uneventful life in Florida for Culver Creek Boarding School in Alabama, in search of “the Great Perhaps.” There, he meets his roommate’s best friend aka the hottest girl he was ever seen aka Alaska Young and predictably falls in love with her. She is moody, intelligent (presumably because she has a wall full of books she calls her “Life’s Library), a little nutty, and self-destructive. Hello, Manic Pixie Dream Girl. She also has a long-distance boyfriend but I think he’s kind of a jerk. These are personality quirks that make her desirable to Miles which surprises me a little because what teenage boy would want to deal with that mess? But maybe I just knew the wrong kind of dudes (so LOLSUX4ME) and to be honest, I wish I had a Miles in my life when I, myself, was a dramatic, self-destructive teenager.
