I've never been to Vietnam and so far my introduction to the city is not bad. Of course, I also find myself in bed with Sayaka (she's sick) as we watch Sex and the City (more on that later), but I really don't mind. I miss chill days like this one with brunch in bed and just vegging out.

And vegging out, I intend to do for more weekends to come. But for now, Ho Chi Minh is calling and tomorrow, we'll venture out. But for now, I'm totally ok. + + +Collapse )

What are you guys reading, watching, listening to, excited for? Tel me everything, please.

The 12th also happens to be the Philippine Independence day and it was fitting that I spent today enjoying my freedom. Sure, I wasn't in Manila, but I did most things alone today and it was alright -- it was great. I tend to focus a lot on my single-ness and how I would like to be attached but days like this -- when I can wake up when I want to and do whatever it is I want to, without having to think of anyone but myself are days when I'm glad that I am unattached.

But also, independence from my parents and my family and being able to live away from home is something I've valued and am grateful for. Cheers to independence. We take it for granted, so much.

    It's June! We're entering the halfway point of 2016 and it's been quite the insane ride already. The month has started off on a slightly sad note just because 2 of my friends have left for Vietnam but there's no point being sad sad sad, so I'm trying my best to stay positive and keeping my chin up and distractions! I need all the distractions I can get.

    + Distraction 1: Running again. I thought that I would start doing the 365 miles a year starting in January but of course, I have not, so now I have to cram the balance of the miles I need to run for the rest of the year. It's quite insane. and I have to run 5K every other day for the rest of the year, but I want to do this and now i have time. I'm going to be so tired.

    + Distraction 2: UnReal is back in our lives! I'm so excited to see this crazy tv show back on my screen just because the first season was so insanely awesome. Constance Zimmer and Shiri Appleby have such an amazing chemistry together and I'm so psyched to see how huge a clusterfuck they're going to get into this season.

    + Distraction 3: Work -- not just my actual work but thinking about what it is I really do want to do. Now I have time to simmer and stew and figure out what I want to do next or in this current company or just think things through. It's been pretty hectic and there never is any down time but I need to create time to think otherwise, i'm going in circles.

    + Distraction 4: You guys! Expect random messages and much more stalking from me just because I want to keep busy and keep updated with all of you. For those I have on snapchat or those I haven't, I'm pattylazatin on there and if you're not on Twitter, Tumblr or Instagram or Facebook, let me know because I'm going to bug you guys there or on WhatsApp. I'm annoying, I know.

    What are you guys up to this month?

    My months are getting more emotional. With Sayaka resigning at the end of April and Chris following her lead and resigning in May, it's been a month of denial and not wanting to let go but also clinging to every last bit of time we have together. It's insane, I met these people a year ago and yet, it feels like eternity.

    May was good, don't get me wrong. I'm not depressed (yet), I'm smiling and I'm grateful. It's just always sad when people leave and May was like one big countdown to Sayaka leaving for Vietnam. It's been a good run, and I know it's not the end, but I clearly underestimated how much I had latched on to her. Here's to May, it was merry when it was. Read more...Collapse )

    These past few weeks have been an emotional bit for me and I'm honestly just a mess inside. I can't put it down on paper or type it out without rambling like a maniac. So instead, I took this from earnmysong so ask away!
    So I want you to ask me something you think you should know about me. Something that should be obvious but you have no idea about, or something obscure you just have to know. Ask away. All topics, within reason, are open for discussion.
