Denial

Denial

You see it happening right in front of your eyes.

You hear it being said to you over and over again.

You feel your heart break into million pieces while your throat tightens into an impossible knot.

You can even taste your own tears running down your face now.

Yet you still listen to that tiny crack of voice inside your head that ever so softly whispers,

“It’s not true–it can’t be true.. Right?”

Quarter Life Crisis Is Getting Real

Quarter Life Crisis Is Getting Real

Some–or maybe all–of you may not know, but I’m going to be 25 this year.

Gosh. I feel old.

I’m hearing my bones literally cracking just by typing that.

Kidding aside, I’m definitely feeling this quarter life crisis now and I don’t know what to feel about it.

Am I on the right path?

Am I doing enough?

Do I need to change career all over again?

Just some of the questions that bother me everyday that’s obviously left unanswered.

*sigh*

Blogging Therapy

Blogging Therapy

For me, blogging is very therapeutic.

There’s that sense of relief and liberation when I write about my feelings or the things I’m very passionate about.

People reading my blog and leaving positive comments is just an amazing bonus.

Working + studying at the same time is very exhausting–I’m in dire need of a blogging therapy now.

My heart and mind is just bursting with feelings that needs to be written down.

I guess I can say I’m back.. Again.

The Good Kind of Busy

The Good Kind of Busy

Oh, wow. I haven’t updated this blog for a while now–a lot has happened these past few days and I’m bursting to share it here!

First off, I’m now working as a Lower Primary School Teacher and I’m loving every bit of it. I’m always excited to teach my students new things everyday! The cute little messages they give me is just the cherry on top! ♡

Aside from being a teacher during the weekdays, I transition to being the student during weekends. I’m already taking my classes for my Masters Degree in Special Education–and I love it even more!

As of the moment, we are learning Sign Language in one of my classes and I’m proud to say that I already know quite a few signs just enough for a deaf person to understand what I’m trying to say. Aside from that, we will soon learn how to use braille as well. I can’t explain how motivated and excited I am! I’ll probably do more detailed posts soon about the things I learned in my SpEd classes or my experiences of being a Primary School Teacher! ♡

As what our School President said, “We are not stressed, we are just busy!” Heck yes, I am busy–the good kind of busy–and I love it! ♡

“Whatever goal we’re pursuing,

no matter how rugged the climb,

we’re certain to get there

by trying our best, and

by taking one day at a time.

“Forever” is hard to imagine,

“the future” may seem far away–

but every new dawn

brings a wonderful chance

to do what we can on that day.”

Emily Matthews

One Day At A Time

I’m Already Missing The Moment While I’m Still Living It

I’m Already Missing The Moment While I’m Still Living It

My new-found friends in grad school, co-teachers and my students in my current job (which I will be leaving very soon–see here for more info) makes it really difficult to say goodbye once I’m done with that chapter in my life.

I’m already missing the moment while I’m still living it.

Truth is, we need to move forward for us to be better.

This is my way of finally embracing growth and the new adventures waiting for me–writing about it.

Adios… For now.

Macao Imperial Tea’s Cream Cheese Milk Tea ♡ | Milk Tea Review

My Milk Tea Rating: 5/5

Aside from coffee, I am a huge milk tea lover as well! This post is long overdue, but here it is! ♡

Macao Imperial Tea is one of the milk tea shops I really want to check out. When I went there, I’m not really quite sure what to order–typical me in every new shop I go to–so I ended up asking the barista their best milk tea instead. They happily suggested Cream Cheese Milk Tea.

A portion of their menu. (Photo is mine.)

So, for the taste! I love it ♡ though it’s a slightly different taste from what I am used to–it’s less sweeter and more on the creamier (and a bit salty) side (they don’t call it cream cheese for nothing!)

Here’s my Cream Cheese Milk Tea (Photo is mine.)

My mom even approves. She loves it. LOL.

If my memory serves me well, the price is around Php 145 + Php 20 for the pearls.

Though a bit pricey compared to other milk tea shops, it’s still worth a try! Will definitely go back there soon ♡

Lord, Help Me Understand

Lord, Help Me Understand

I still have a lot to do and yet to achieve…

…and I want my Mom and Dad to witness all of it.

I need more time.

I cannot be 24 already. I was just 18 and starting to plan things out, right?

Why am I still where I am at this point in time?

I should be successful by now.

Why..

..why am I still not?
