2014 Reading Challenge (Final Update)

January 3, 2016 § Leave a comment

I know I know. This is one uber late post. The first of three for reading challenges. For reasons, please read the last three or four personal updates.

I am happy to report that for the 3rd year in a row, my reading challenge was a success.

2014 RC - 1

Below are the books I read:

2014 RC - 2

The book with no picture is “Signed, Sealed, Delivered” by Avril Tremayne. Okay so there are 6 comics and 1 short story on the list, so that may be kind of cheating. However, I read a lot of free books on Wattpad that aren’t on Goodreads so it balances. I didn’t get far on my 2nd reading challenge and read 4 books out of 31. I’m not too disappointed though because there isn’t a deadline for that challenge. On to the next reading challenge post.


The Year That Was 2015

January 2, 2016 § 1 Comment

I intentionally skipped doing my annual new year’s post on the first because I was exhausted. I had merely 3 hours of sleep because of NYE celebrations and then went ice skating. When we got home, I was ready to crash but my nephew insisted on playing Star Wars monopoly. I also had to finish the last Sims Freeplay quest because it was ending and I wanted more hairstyle choices, lol. So yeah, I slept past midnight.

I played with the idea to completely skip it this year but I really don’t want to break what has become a personal tradition. So I’m writing this at work in between interval reports (thanks to the holiday quiet).

2015 was a sad and difficult year.

Malipayong Pasko sa Tanan (This Year’s Christmas Post)

December 25, 2015 § Leave a comment

Losing a loved one to death is the most heartbreaking of all heartbreakers. My family lost someone so dear to us just two months past and celebrating Christmas has been difficult.

We were able to rise above our sadness though and got into the season. This afterall is about the birth of Jesus Christ, our savior. Happy birthday, Jesus!

I thank the Lord God, who despite the troubles, has showered us with enough blessings to get by. We offer our celebrations in your name.

Have a wonderful Christmas everyone!

Community Season 4 Episode 11 (Basic Human Anatomy)

Committing is hard because we’re all scared of what happens when we find out we committed to the wrong thing.

Immune (LLP s3 – p3)

The song that inspired the title of my last personal check-in post. Really though, I just didn’t know what to use for the last post and this song was my loop song last week.

One of the new additions to my watchlist this season is Syfy’s new show, Killjoys. The end scene of its 7th episode introduced me to yet another loop song and to a great band.

Immune by Groenland

Groenland is a Montreal based orchestral indie pop band. They released their first album, The Chase, in 2013. Immune is easily my most favorite single. Everything about the song does it for me. It’s one of those songs that catches your attention after listening to just a few notes.

And not just this song. The whole album is terrific. Other favorites are Daydreaming, and Our Hearts Like Gold.
