Brand New Day

Tomorrow is a brand new day, and I'm saying that just because I haven't done anything productive today. Not even a little bit. Just so you know, tomorrow is the start of Finals Week, and I haven't studied anything. Not one bit.

I have a weird way of studying, like I see some of my friends study things in advance, and I can't do that. I have to study the day before the test, or else, if I study two days prior the test, I will forget what I studied on the day of the test. So, I'm not risking that.

In other way, I want to be prepared, because the 2nd semester is coming and I want to ace all my tests and I want to get great score. I mean who doesn't, right? And believe me, I have and am trying my best for this semester, and thank the stars college hasn't messed with me yet. Fortunately for me, tomorrow's subject is General English, so I don't worry that much. My class got an A2 level on english, so what we learn is basically basic english and I feel like that's an advantage for me. 'A' on English, here I go!

But I really have to study though, even a little bit. And I don't know why or what makes me write a blog post about it rather than actually studying. Oh well, I'm giving myself a pep talk! As for right now, I'm listening to Taylor Swift. I'm in a mood for Taylor Swift at the moment.

More about finals week, I can't believe it's already the end of this year's semester. Next semester is going to be big, hectic, and maybe a little bit crazy. Into to PAC (Performing Arts Communication) is next semester, along with Intro to Public Speaking (if I'm not mistaken), and other projects from other subjects. I have to be ready for that. If I thought the first semester was hectic, I don't know what's coming my way (at least, that's what the lecturers said).

And after finals week, it's HO-LI-DAY!! Yes, I am so ready for holiday and just taking my mind off of things and just winding down. And I think I'm going to find something to do during my time off from college,  so I wouldn't be as useless as a person than I already am, ha ha! I'm also planning to hang out with my friends more; my high school friends, my college friends, or my middle school friends even. I haven't asked anyone to hang out with me though, I mean, I'm planning 'mentally' but I don't have any plans scheduled yet.

Anyway, I really do need to study. I'm gonna have to find the courage to do so.

My New Love for Jazz

New discovery!!! I think I like Jazz.

I watched La La Land yesterday. So it's a musical, with Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling as the stars. It's a great movie, I really liked it, and it kind of revolve around Jazz. And right now, I can't stop listening to the movie's soundtrack and I love, LOVE, Mia and Sebastian's Theme. I don't want to give anything away, but the song played at the end of the movie and my friends and I were literally bawling our eyes out!

Speaking of the song, it kind of makes me want to play piano again. The melody on that song is so beautiful that it kind of my old sparks and love for piano. I know, you probably think that I have too many things or "sparks" for things, but it's true. I used to play piano a lot, and I knew how to play a lot of songs, but as I get older, I lost interest. I sometimes still play piano if I want to, but not so much lately. I think a lot of things grow out on me as I get older. My passion for piano, my writing, my will to live (just kidding). But seriously, I need to get something right on track.

And I don't know what to do with my extracurriculars. I join radio and english club, but that's about it. Just joining. And not doing anything with it. I want to do something, and I don't want to seem like I have excuse for everything, but last year has been hard like I've mentioned (but also partly great), so I couldn't take anything seriously. It's also kind of my fault, because I just got into college and at one point I take things too fast, and when it all started to catch up on me, I back out. Something that I need to figure out how to deal with really quickly.

That's something I can make as my 2017 resolution:

  1. Take things slow. 
  3. Take challenges. Looking back to 2016, there are things that I regret not doing.
  4. Calm. Down.
I don't know what's the reason behind number four. Maybe the same reason as number 1? I don't even know.

Anyway, my new love for Jazz still stands. I have been searching for the perfect Jazz playlist on Spotify, but I haven't found out that perfectly fits me and my mood. As for now, I'm gonna go and look some more.

"New Year, New Me"

It's 2017!

I cannot believe it. I mean, I'm writing this blog post on January 12th, so my excitement is a little bit overdue. As for the title, I'm thinking about getting my blog up daily. My writing has been lacking and I want to get more into it now that I'm 19 YEARS OLD!!! Crazy.

I read somewhere that as you get older, time passes faster. And it's crazy to think that next year I will be an adult, a woman. I will be a woman next year.

And yes, as I was saying, I want to write on my blog daily now like I used to back on 8th grade. It was a fun time. It was kind of like my "unbecoming" as an aspiring author. Honestly, I don't know what kind of content I would be posting here. Probably about life in general? I don't know. But I just feel like by writing and posting on my blog, it will spark the flame I had when I was deeply-crazy-in love with writing.

2016 has been one of the hardest year of my life lately. Things happened and some of them I had to get through alone, which sucks. But a lot of good things also happened in 2016; things that I'm grateful for, things that I'm wishing I could relive. Last year was the year I really found out the meaning of life, finding truths about things that I didn't know exist. Last year was literally the year that I discover more about myself and life.

I graduated high school last year, which was AWESOME! I miss my best friends terribly, but we're on our own now, studying and what not. One of the highlights of last year was graduation. It was pretty awesome.

Look at those! I was so happy. And on that picture with my Mom, I had to carry my heels, because it WAS PAINFUL!

And last year I also had my senior prom. It wasn't like anything from the movies (it was okay), but I still had a good time.

2016 was also the year I met new friends. Very cool new friends. I never thought that I would love college so much. It was nothing like high school, it was way cooler than high school. The friends I made was undeniably funny, chaotic, loving, and a bit crazy. Honestly, I never thought that I would find new sets of groups of friends that I can connect with easily on such new and foreign world. I am glad to find these new friends of mine, or else I don't know if college would be bearable.

But 2016 wasn't the year that I finally find 'love', or whatever. If anything, 2016 was the year that made me...doubt in the meaning of love. Or true love. Maybe because I haven't found 'someone' yet, but there is a reason why I'm in doubt. The reason that I cannot share.

A lot has happened since I posted anything on this blog. I didn't think that I would write anything anymore in here. An idea kind of struck me to make this brand new blog post on 2017! Frankly though, I have tried to post several times on 2016, but I didn't think those post are worth posting. I kind of want to start new, start fresh. Giving away new ideas other than same old, same old, you know?

Nothing else that exciting happened last year, nothing that worth remembering, but I have a high hope that this year would be my year. I'm sure of it.

Oh, and also, I have been really active on Spotify. I make playlist every month since August '16, so make sure to check those out. I will be posting the link on the bottom of the post, on every post!
