Currently: Trying not to overthink everything  


Loving: Birthday month. Sure, the birthday is long over but the fun times have been pretty awesome. I've met up with some friends, not feeling so bad about my employment, got a quasi-new job out of it and just feeling really, dare I say, happy this February. I like it. A lot.

Reading: I'm quite behind on my reading list and I'll have to remedy that soon, but I'm starting Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk and hoping it's a good one, but I should also be starting on book four of the A Song of Fire and Ice series with season 3 starting up soon on HBO.

Watching: I came into The Lizzie Bennet Diaries late but I've caught up on everything and I'm obsessed. Like very very very obsessed. I've seen it all over my dashboard on Tumblr and thanks to mellowdee over here and obviously, it is the best thing to happen to P&P fandom lately.

The way they adapted it is brilliant (it's just enough modernization without diverting from the original work). The casting is perfect (hello Bennet sisters, Lee siblings, Lu friends, Wickham, Fitz, Gigi and of course, Darcy!!!). The extensions are amazing (transmedia is too cool, I am obsessively tracking down every conversation), and of course the chemistry (Lizzie/Darcy, I'm looking at you) and I could go on and on. Plus, I gained new friends at work because of it. Too bad, I feel it's ending in like 10 episodes but it doesn't mean I can't rewatch. Oh internet. Never change.

Anticipating: The new season of Game of Thrones and the (I hope you're good) web series inspired by it, School of Thrones. Like I mentioned, I really need to finish book four and five, but I'll take my time with the fourth. Season 2 of the TV series was still pretty awesome and seeing the trailer for season 3, I'm more than ready for the series to be back in my life.

Listening to: Coming from the high of the wonderful Stars concert that happened two weeks ago, I've been listening to the 25-song setlist they performed and trying to relive the experience. It was pretty awesome way to end the birthday week, seeing them live with awesome friends so they'll be on repeat for quite a bit.

Planning: my Oscar-awards viewing strategy for tomorrow. I have work and a bunch of meetings so I know I'll be spoiled before I get home to watch it. So I'm trying to find a way to sneak in red-carpet viewings and winner-revealing in the between meetings. Why didn't I just take a leave again?

Working on: Finally finishing my Paris 2012 photos. My London ones were done quite a while ago but the five days in Paris is taking forever. I really just need to sit down, disconnect from the internet and finish putting it together so I can finally upload them. I'm a procrastinator, what can I say?

Wishing: I could turn off my overthinking head sometimes. I know it's good to think things through, and I've always been a head-over-heart kind of girl, but I feel if I turned off my brain for a few seconds over the years, I'd be 'living' more? I don't know. I'm glad I haven't had any serious damage done to me because I think everything through way too much but at the same time, perhaps I've missed out on some things too? I don't know, I'm overthinking overthinking, of course.

eee, happy belated birthday my dear!!! i can't believe i had no idea, but here is to many many happy returns~ ♥

i was kind of iffy on the LBD during their lydia arc because i felt like it was mishandled, but now that we're nearing the end of the story i'm starting to love it again. ashley clements and daniel vincent gordh really do have excellent chemistry together.

stars = ♥ overthinking, not so much :(

They really do have amazing chemistry and this calls for a rewatch. I miss it already

haha. Stars needs to happen again. Overthinking needs to go away. Hugs!

I cannot believe February's over. But what a month it's been :)

I hope you were able to watch the Oscars na :) And excited for your London/Paris pics too!

"I'm overthinking overthinking, of course."-- Pati ba naman 'to. Hahaha ;) Never really a good idea to completely turn off your brain, anyway so I think you're doing fine. And who's to say you haven't been "living"?
