Life Lately + Can Leo Win an Oscars now?

These past few weeks have been crazy. This entire February has been crazy. I miss my bed. I miss sleeping in. I miss being a bum on weekends. I’ve just got back from our Baguio trip around 2 AM then I set off for work around 7 AM. Yep, I’m still alive. Oh yeah, hello February 29!!

I pretty much run myself ragged this month but I’m happy. Tired, but satisfied. The house didn’t burn down when Mom was in Singapore for a quick Valentine’s getaway. Valentine’s weekend with my dork excuse of brothers. My friends and I’s 4D3N Hong Kong trip went off with only few hitches – like delayed flights and getting really lost only once. The Baguio trip with my officemates were cool; I get to know them more as a person other than just the professional image I have of them.

I’m currently working on a lot of travel backlogs – Singapore, Tagaytay, Ilocos, Hong Kong, and now Baguio to name a few. I have thousands of photos to go through and lots of memories to reminisce about. It will take a while to finish it, but I’m in no rush. I might start with the Hong Kong ones first just because I feel like telling those tales of adventures and misadventures I had with my friends. Most of the misadventures are already stated in my Lost in Hong Kong: Culture Shock post.

To add, I’m burned out with all the recent travelling. Gasp. I know. Who would’ve thought I’ll be admitting that? I used to be a real homebody before the travel bug bit me. And by homebody, I mean, I don’t leave the house except for the occasional mall and cinema trips. I guess my body’s missing the comfort of home (and my bed). I actually passed on a Calaguas trip that’s supposed to happen next weekend. And my next confirmed travel is my Singapore trip on late April. I have time to settled back in at home and rest my feet for a while. I’m okay with that.

I’m also thinking of taking a leave from blogging. Because the perfectionist in me likes organization and my blog looks like a mess to me. I want to do a new look for my blog and make sure that my posts are in sync with each other. Sounds difficult but it’s just a thought for now. Or maybe I’ll just do it part by part on weekends so I can still make updates once in a while.

Music wise, The 1975 finally released their second album (!!!)I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet unaware of it.Seriously. That’s the name of the album. Favorite songs so far are A Change of Heart, The Sound, and Love Me. Favorite lyrics: “You used to have a face straight out of a magazine / Now you just look like anyone / I just had a change of heart.

Today’s the Oscar’s and I am still rooting for Leonardo di Caprio to win his first Oscar. Seriously. It’s been robbed from him a lot of times already. And frankly, the only reason why I still read updates from that awards show. Mad Max already won a lot of awards as I’m typing up this post (I’m on my lunch break) and I’m happy about that as well. It’s well-deserved.

Update: Five minutes after my post went up, it was announced that Leo won a freaking Oscar! Freaking finally!!! I can’t wait until my work shift is over so I can properly celebrate my baby’s win!!

I usually do my life lately posts in bullets but somehow this ended up in paragraphs. I’m not sure why. Maybe I just feel like being rambling today. I feel like making my future life lately posts in paragraph form, though. Feels more personal and I like that.
