Before the day ends…

Happy New Year, everyone! Hopefully I’ll be a better blogger this year. Also, no magic there…just 4 exposures :)

I seem to have fallen off the wagon when it comes to blogging recently. I can never seem to keep my attention on one task for more than 30 minutes, and the whole ‘blogging between homework’ scheme appears to have failed because I’ve reached the age wherein a single assignment takes more than a couple of hours to complete *sighs*. For the sake of my own sanity, I’ll leave this here as a reminder of the little pocket of comfort that I found in the mountains.

Take me back.

A little bit tilted, and a fuzzy result from my previously snow-logged lens

Being alone is a blessing and a curse. Sometimes, the privacy is the answer to my silent prayers for silence to be able to hear my own thoughts. Other times, the silence becomes too loud, and my thoughts run too rampant.

Tonight, I’m telling myself that I’ll start studying at 8PM. I’m giving myself a deadline to feel all that has to be felt before I move on with my life and go about my daily routine like I’m not waiting for the other shoe to drop or for the world to give me some momentous sign. What am I waiting for exactly? I don’t know.

It’s been a great year filled with some really beautiful mornings.

Still can’t believe I managed to get up before 7AM on this many instances to take these.

What in the world was I up to in 2015 (read: what was I doing that I forgot the existence of my blog)

Japan (Tokyo and Osaka | June 2015)

Also, dream shoot ideas realized thanks to fancy lights, two cars (+ killer headlights), and an amazing team.

I go on spontaneous trips in the middle of the school week and go MIA on all blogging platforms for indefinite periods of time

Channeling all my [lack of] summer frustrations into this project

Spent the last week of 2014 in Thailand! It was definitely an interesting place with a colorful culture from altars at every street corner to the death-defying stunt of crossing the street.

I think fireworks are temporary sparkling nebulas in the universe, and they look absolutely magical.

Another WIP, another attempt at drawing (let me laugh).

[I’m really just trying to finish a paper but my mind won’t unclog itself so I resort to blogging]

It seems that my time lately has been primarily consumed by academics that I can’t really remember doing much else besides eating, sleeping, and studying in the library. But I did spend last weekend at a photo shoot in this gorgeous studio.

Sunlight @.@ so much of it

Waited about 10 minutes for that person to walk by the water. Patience is not my strong suit

August 23 2014



I often find myself wishing that I was a lot of things. That maybe, in the back of my mind, I can play the selfish individual and hope for a ton of other things that go beyond the different sorts of wonderful that I’m experiencing now. I wish I were a lot better; a lot less self-concerned, a whole lot more responsible, a whole lot more aware, more eloquent, more organized, less awkward…more (or less) insert-adjective-here. Maybe I wish I was capable of filling every unfulfilled expectation.

And then I realize that there’s a whole lot more to it. Honestly speaking, it’s easy to wish you were a lot more of this or a lot less of that, but it’s an entirely different ball game when it comes to actually making it happen. It means doing a lot of things that you don’t want to do, it means doing something you dislike, so much that it hurts–not in the physical sense but in the entire “my mind and body are rebelling against this out of the norm experience”-sense, but you do it anyway because you know you’ll be thanking yourself later.

It’s forcing yourself to get up and get yourself a glass of water when you’d rather lie down. It’s willing yourself to open your notebook and study for that test when you’d rather sleep. It’s hugging a pillow so tight in hopes of turning your thoughts off because you want some peace of mind for a change. But most of all it’s accepting every little thing that you aren’t and not falling into a sense of complacency that you already are—at this very moment—something, because you and I both know that you’re eons better than that.

If it weren’t for this belief, I think I’d already be burned out. It’s refreshing to be able to thank myself for the words that keep me going. While it’s often convenient to express your emotions through the words of others, it’s a challenge to be able to go back and thank yourself for your own motivation.

Saw these little kittens (twins!) while I was taking shelter from the rain. The other one seemed to dislike me (top) while its twin was a little more forthcoming (bottom).

Thank you Lily! ♥ Sorry this took a while! flipthroughthepages

ps. yes, I’m still doing the palette challenges but I honestly didn’t expect to get so much requests so I still haven’t gotten around doing a bunch of them ;; But I will get to drawing them! Eventually :-“

Wonderful work from my fun-sized friend (as usual). Thank you so much, Oreo!!

I absolutely adore Google’s doodle tribute to Nelson Mandela. Kudos for thinking of a way to creatively present his life and his inspiring words.

What I would give to work with a think tank like that.
