Trying On My Blogging Wings Again

I've been trying to write something for 2 hours now. Frankly, it's not helping that I'm in an internet cafe right now and my creative juices just can't compete with all the smokes and craziness in here. Thank goodness it's quite peaceful right now because I'm one tick away from killing every self-righteous brat in this place. And although the girl beside me still keeps on reading what I'm writing, at least I can finally hear myself think. Hallelujah.

I’ve been planning to come back since forever. But something just keeps on happening it’s becoming next to impossible to really do it. So here I am now, just winging it. I don't know what to do from here but I just miss blogging so much I fear that if I don't take this chance, I might just not be able to return altogether.

One of the biggest obstacles that made it hard for me to start blogging again was my laptop's unfortunate demise. Since my laptop's death, I felt lost and debilitated. I feel like crying every time I remember all the review drafts that will never see the light of day anymore. It was more than my writing tool; it was my safe space.

It’s a testament to how much I really love reading and blogging that I’m trying to write in a noisy, public black hole right now. This is going to be challenging and I will have to remind myself every time I'm feeling annoyed or murderous or think that I'd die from lung cancer due to all the secondhand smoke I've inhaled, that this is not a permanent fix and that it won’t be long until I can finally buy a new laptop. All I ask of you guys is to just bear with me until I can regularize my posts. 

I miss blogging and I hope you guys miss me too. I simply cannot wait to fully resurrect this place one again. I hope you are all still there to support me and make it all worth it. So until then.

A Quick Post from the Dead

Image from nekkedbeararmy.com
Hello you guys! Just typing this short post for everyone who's been asking about my whereabouts. I'm still alive, thank God! I'm currently preparing for my upcoming graduation this March 22 so I am every bit as busy as those who are taking their final examinations before the term ends.

Hopefully when all the crazy subsides, I could come back. But that's not for another 2 months, I guess, because I'll be taking my licensure examination this coming June. Maybe after that?

I hope you guys are doing okay. I can't wait to fully start reading and blogging again. My reading pile is in dire need of a reader and I wish that could be me soon. I wish to come back with a very good news and a fantastic giveaway to spark things up again.

That's all. Tata for now.

Greetings + Winner Announcement

Hi everyone! Merry Christmas! How's the holidays going for you? In the Philippines, Christmas is pretty crazy mainly because it's the time of the year for everyone in the family to get together and celebrate. This year, our Christmas is a little quiet and hot but the important thing is it's peaceful and we get to spend quality time with each other.

This day also marks the end of my blogoversary giveaway and I've already contacted the winner. So who's the lucky one? It's... *drumrolls*

Congratulations! I've sent an email and I'm just waiting for the confirmation. Thank you for everyone who entered. You made my 1st ever blogoversary special. Thank you, thank you so much!

Now let's get back to the festivities, shall we? Ho, ho, ho. ;)

Where Have I Been?

So here I am again. I can't believe I have neglected my blog for almost 3 weeks straight now. And I can't believe I am going to write this type of post again. I thought I am going to have time to finally blog again because our schedule is not as crazy as before. But again, I was wrong. 

Just last Wednesday to Friday, we had our retreat. Then on Sunday, we had our Grad Pic. I am graduating soon! I am so excited for that end goal, I keep forgetting about the remaining days I have at college. So I decided to take a step back yet again in blogging to try to spend more time out there. It's just that I keep my head buried in books all the time, not that it's a bad thing, but I will try to tone it down this time. 

I don't know when I'll be back. Maybe next week, after Christmas, next year. I just don't want to push myself into committing to a definite time I am fairly certain I couldn't follow. The thing about me is the more I try to schedule stuff in advance, the more I deviate from it and procrastinate. That's why I think I'll work as I go. :)

My blogoversary giveaway is still ongoing by the way and I'd post long overdue reviews soon but I can't comment or reply to comments as much as before. 

That's it, I guess. I'll be back indefinitely. But I think the more important thing is, I'll be back. Until then, folks.

"Waiting On" Wednesday (13): Just One Day

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating. 

Book: Just One Day by Gayle Forman
Publication Date: January 8, 2013
Publisher: Dutton Junevile

A breathtaking journey toward self-discovery and true love, from the author of If I Stay.

When sheltered American good girl Allyson "LuLu" Healey first meets laid-back Dutch actor Willem De Ruiter at an underground performance of Twelfth Night in England, there’s an undeniable spark. After just one day together, that spark bursts into a flame, or so it seems to Allyson, until the following morning, when she wakes up after a whirlwind day in Paris to discover that Willem has left. Over the next year, Allyson embarks on a journey to come to terms with the narrow confines of her life, and through Shakespeare, travel, and a quest for her almost-true-love, to break free of those confines.

Just One Day is the first in a sweepingly romantic duet of novels. Willem’s story—Just One Year—is coming soon! - From Goodreads

Ever heard of If I Stay? Where She Went? Those two are my most favorite books ever and they're both written by no other than Gayle Forman. So it's kind of implied that I'm dying to read more of her works. I just know I'd love them as much if not more.

What are you waiting on?
