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?

Coffee Update 1: Little Farmers Coffee Brim – Flavors I Tasted So Far

  1. Hazelnut Vanilla (Strength: Medium | Caffeine: Medium)
  2. Bailey’s Irish Cream (Strength: Low | Caffeine: Medium)
  3. Caramel (Strength: Low | Caffeine: Low)

Since then, I tasted two (2) more flavors:

  1. Macadamia (Strength: Medium | Caffeine: Low)
  2. Espresso Blend (Strength: High | Caffeine: High)

Will update this post soon!

My Coffee Is Not Working

My Coffee Is Not Working

Usually we drink coffee to stay awake, right?

I’m not quite sure if this is the result of too much coffee for me.. But whenever I drink it, I feel the opposite. Sleepy.

For instance, I can drink coffee at 10pm and will have no trouble sleeping after that.

Unless it’s a shot of espresso perhaps..? LOL.

Regardless, I still drink it. I guess, at this stage, I’m just loving coffee for its taste and not the caffeine!

Is coffee not working for you too?

I never heard of Little Farmers Coffee Brim until recently–and I am super excited!

My coffee-holic self is internally screaming! ♡

Look at those beautiful beans! (Photo is mine.)

Coffee beans from the Cordillera mountains is now within Cebu’s reach. While we indulge ourselves with our roasted coffee of choice, we are also helping the farmers–the little farmers–in the process.

Price list for the roasted coffee per gram. (Photo is mine.)

As of writing, I already tasted three (3) types of coffee beans from them. I did not buy the roasted coffee though, I instead bought it in an iced coffee way.

Hazelnut Vanilla

Bailey’s Irish Cream

Caramel

You can have it brewed as well if you wish.

For Brewed it’s at Php 55, for Iced it’s at Php 65, for Decaf it’s at Php 85 and for the Civet (Alamid) at Php 200.

The price really made me happy! Compared to imported coffee shops, the taste is somewhat the same (maybe even better in my opinion) but the price difference is huge.

If we can buy expensive coffees, why not try this local coffee shop as well? I 100% recommend it.

PS. I overheard from one of the baristas that they might add Frappes in the future. Hopefully! 🙂

My Rating: 5/5 | Goodreads: 4.34/5

Love, Simon. Wow.

This book is not just c-u-t-e but it is also very r-e-a-l.

I am loving how it talks about the modern day approach of kids (or teens) and adults towards the LGBTQ+ community.

It highlights the main character’s (Simon) journey of coming out.

Coming out will never be easy to more than half of the LGBTQ+ community–if not all–but, would it be fair to let the straight people come out.. As straight as well? LOL.

Well, the real deal for me here is people can’t and should never dictate when you are ready to come out–or heck if you ever need to.

Only you can decide when, where and how. Respect is what you call it and people should know that. But then again, some people will never understand. Let them be. If you accept yourself for who you are, then you are all good.

This book will make you laugh, cry and be giddy on the inside. I highly recommend everybody to read it–straight or not.

As for me, I will definitely watch the movie very soon! Hoping that the directors will surpass the feels the book gave me ♡

Love, Steffi
