My Very Exciting Summer

Bangui Wind Farm (Windmill Farm), Bangui, Ilocos Norte

Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park, Puerto Princesa, Palawan

Boracay Beach Resort, Boracay Island

El Nido, Palawan

These are just some of the beautiful sights within the borders of my country. These places are also considered as tourist spots, summer or not. Unfortunately, I haven't gone to one of them, though someday I know I will see those places myself.

Summer could not be more boring within the corners of my house. Wake up, eat, read, internet, household chores, eat again, read, sleep. That's basically the plot of my summer. Very exciting. How I wish I am out in a road trip with my family, or friends even. I would appreciate swimming in the pool. I just want some relaxing place to relax (lol) and breathe out. 

Since it is really kinda boring here, I came up with a list of songs for road trips. I just wish I could spend my summer outside my house. Beaches, and more time in province with my cousins. Good thing is, there is a mall near our location so my sister and I get to spend some days there, chilling out and shopping. I also get to meet my church mates at least once a week. It was really fun and refreshing.

Song list:

  1. We'll Be Alright / Travie McCoy
  2. Heart Skips A Beat / Olly Murs
  3. Good Time / Owl City ft. Carly Rae Jepsen
  4. It's Time / Imagine Dragons
  5. When Can I See You Again / Owl City
  6. Live While We're Young/ One Direction
  7. Brokenhearted / Karmin
  8. Up All Night / One Direction
  9. Stuck In The Middle / Mika
  10. How Do You Sleep / Jesse McCartney
  11. Thinking of Me / Olly Murs
  12. With Your Love / Cher Lloyd ft. Mike Posner
  13. On Top of the World / Imagine The Dragons
  14. Send Me On My Way / Rusted Root
  15. Gone, Gone, Gone / Phillip Phillips
  16. Nothing Is Impossible / Planetshakers
  17. Leavin' / Jesse McCartney
  18. Our Lives / The Calling
  19. I'll Be Yours / Those Dancing Days

I suck in giving titles. Seriously. So, anyone who wants to give me tips on how to make a really good and creative title on any thing like blog, journal, article, etc. will be appreciated so much!

Vacation day back in school

6:15 AM Posted by ask me No comments
I’m feeling lazy earlier this morning to go to my school to fix my college application. Today was really hot, just like the other summer days. Unfortunately, I forgot to bring an umbrella so I have to suffer from the burning heat from the sun.

I was with my classmate and friend today. We have the same case. 'Til now, we still don't have a college program for the coming school year. I failed my test for Medical Technology; that's why here I am, doing my best to reconsider my application. Same thing with my classmate; she applied for accountancy, but failed. I'm praying to God for His perfect will. Sadly, everything's kinda vague still. I'm just kinda worried because nothing has accepted my application yet, given the fact that I only inquired for one program. As my uncertainty about my application for reconsideration for Med Tech rises, I submitted another letter for reconsideration in Behavioral Science and in Financial Management. It is really inevitable for me to worry, but God didn't leave me behind. He didn't let me carry those worries without even giving me the chance to lighten up my load by His Word / promise.

"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." ~ Jeremiah 29:11

"Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am." ~ John 14:1-3

A Trilogy Addiction

I really am sorry for this Summer trilogy spam. I know I have more than two blog entries about this trilogy, but I'm sorry I just can't get enough. :(  I just don't have someone to talk to about how good this book is, so I have to express, express, and express :) 

I spent two days rereading It's Not Summer Without You and We'll Always Have Summer. I seriously can't get enough of the Summer trilogy. Believe it or not, I still found myself crying (but not as bad as the first time I read it though) at the end of the book. I even managed to e-mail Jenny Han last night to show my appreciation and gratitude. Anyway, in my post entitled The Summer Trilogy, I put up a list of songs that fit the characters and two tandems respectively. But I think I should put all the songs all together in a mixtape, so here it is. Hope you'll like it :)

One last thing. Movie casting. I really wish this trilogy would have a movie. I came up with my own dream cast. It was really a hard to choose, knowing that a lot of actors/actresses can be qualified. Unfortunately, as of now, I came up with my list for a few characters only. For the really main characters, I have two choices each.


Lily Collins


Thomas McDonell

Steven McQueen

**I really like Thomas McDonell to take the role of Conrad. And I think Steven McQueen can take Jeremiah's role, too.


Jeremy Sumpter


Meaghan Martin


Drew Roy


Logan Lerman


That's it. I hope I can finally get over this trilogy. It affected me so much :)

Thanks to Jenny Han for this amazing trilogy.

Disclaimer: I don't own those pictures. I forgot what specific sites I have gotten those. I basically searched in Google Images, but I believe each picture belongs to a certain website, so yeah :D

PS. You may read my Summer trilogy book reviews, too! :)
