Life Recently #6

READING// I have read a handful of books from December. One of it is my favorite author’s new book called Never Never by Colleen Hoover. It was amazing as usual.

LISTENING// I’ve been listening to different kind of music on my Spotify. One of my faves now are Tell Her You Love her by Echosmith, I Can’t Stop Thinking About You By Bebe Rexha, When I Find Love Again by James Blunt, Thinking Out Loud by Ed Sheeran and many other songs. I don’t stick in one genre.

WATCHING// I watched tons of movies. Some of them are The Theory Of Everything, Norman, Instructions Not Included and Babadook. I really love the first movie I mentioned. Stephen Hawkings is more than a genius. His life is so interesting and inspirational.

FEELING// I’m feeling ecstatic these days probably because there’s so much to look forward to: Dinagyang festival, a day at the beach with my cousins, and God knows what else. Oh, and when Pope Francis visit our country, I feel much more in touch with my Faith. I feel more blessed. Wish I saw him.

THINKING// Been thinking about, hmm. Not a lot. I’m kind of just living in the now because I tend to worry a lot when I think about things that aren’t happening yet.

PHOTOGRAPHING// I love sunsets so much. I can’t stop taking photos of it. I just love how it turns in different colors. Sometimes it’s yellow, sometimes it’s fiery red, orange and sometimes it’s even pink and purple!

WRITING// Thinking of a blog post is a struggle sometimes. The writer’s block is real. Kidding aside, I think it really is important to have a segment on your blog where you write about it every week to keep it alive. Sometimes it’s the last resort, but it works. Like this one. If you have any prompts or if there’s anything you want me to talk about, feel free to leave ideas on the comment section.

USING// Been using my new iPhone6 non stop. Thanks to it’s battery, I can use my phone longer than I used to with my old one.

REMINISCING// Fun times with my best friend. I miss her and hopefully we can hang out and talk soon.

    I love James Blunt! His Back to Bedlam album is my favorite album of all time. I love his new song. It has such a nice beat to it. And happy, and hopeful. Lovely!

    Nice choice of playlist! I think they’re great. Also, I watched The Theory of Everything last week and I got hooked with the story. Sadly, Jane and Stephen are not together anymore (because I kinda really shipped them ’til now, haha). Did you take that sunset through iPhone 6? Wow, its beauty is dashing. ๐Ÿ™‚

      I shipped them too! I researched about Stephen’s new relationship and I heard that the new woman is being rude to him and mistreated him. Good thing they broke up. And yeah, took it with an iPhone 6 ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks!

    Great post! I agree, it’s sometimes quite difficult to blog. I have heard of Theory of Everything. Based on the comments here, it seems to be a great movie! I’ll watch it soon!

    Fab post, I actually really love these types of posts – really give an insight to the blogger behind the blog.

    I watched so many movies over winter break! Mostly on the plane ๐Ÿ˜› I watched Guardian’s of the Galaxy, The Maze Runner (Dylan O’Brien <3), The Giver, Alexander and the Terrible Horrible No Good Very Bad Day, Let's Be Cops, INTERSTELLAR, Boyhood, and I feel like I watched a few more… Writing is definitely getting harder for me now that school has started again. I think lists like this are a good way to get your creative juices pumping when you're feeling uninspired ๐Ÿ™‚ -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s

    What a pretty blog you have! It’s always so wonderful to have things to look forward to, and more importantly, be excited about the little things in life. Hope you continue your impromptu photography sessions because it’s definitely a fantastic talent to develop.

    I’ve been excited also to see Dinagyang and take a lot of photos. I was the one who designed and executed this year’s Dinagyang Festival.

    May I just ask, did you get the premium of Spotify? Just curious because I’m think of subscribing but I’m still not so convinced. Haha! Anyway, I’m completely opposite. I have so many things to blog about but I don’t have the time or is running out of words to blog it all down. Haha!

    Looks like iPhone 6 is addictive as you are enjoying too much of it. It’s really great that Pope Francis came to our country. he showed us the value of faith, humility and simplicity.

      Yes I did try. I upload iPhone photos on the WordPress app so that it will go straight to my media library. I can blog there too but I would rather write on my laptop. But I reply to comments using that app from my phone. The battery will last for 24 hours with minimal usage. I use my phone a lot using 3G or wifi but I charge it once or twice a day only

    It’s really nice that you have segments on your blog. It really helps you get out of the writers block. Sometimes, it becomes routine and thoughts just flow naturally.

    The best about Theory of Everything is Eddie Redmayne’s transformative performance as Stephen Hawking. I did not know that James Blunt had new songs. I would like to check those songs you listed out.

    Of all the things that you have mentioned above, I think having an Ed Sheeran background is a good thing.
