Lately, I became aware that I am slowly becoming like Haruki Murakami’s typical introverted male lead in most of his novels. I guess college free time are best spent alone. I’ve always of myself as introverted, most of the time since I was in high school and I guess people would think what a…

Island life

So begins my senior year of my uni life. God, how I wish I could ditch the whole thing, travel and study about literature. Isn’t that lovely? I am getting sick of college here, it feels like Im stuck again like how I felt in high school

Also I been obsessing about electronic music lately and it…

11 pm:I think I might go to bed early tonight
3 am:lol

To exist between time and space, to live somewhere beyond reach- that’s where I want to be right now. 

If such place exist I don’t know what would I give in exchange of that. I just want to leave this pit of somber and never ending sinking feeling. If this is up to nowhere then I should just end here. 

You know it’s bad when all you hear from  Bon Iver’s Holocene are just murmur but still everything makes sense.

What I love about Stylenanda so much is their styling. Everything is perfectly put together. How I wish I can pull of these outfit as well. And oh, summer is fast approaching, their latest lookbook is to die for! 

Okay I am no life coach and I may do the same mistakes twice. And yes, you can say I got things wronged. But I am writing this in the hope it would make you realize things. 

1. No matter how hard you cry over things that have happened, they have passed already. See that, it’s past tense. Let it go. 

2. Learn to compromise. I’ve been living with 2 sisters my whole life and if there’s anything that taught me that’s the need to compromise. Sure it’s not easy. You get into fights every now and then. But having an agreement make you settle things a lot better. If someone needs to study do your part and don’t make distractions. 

3. When you need an alone time or to read a book, don’t ever go to Starbucks. Trust me in the Philippines, it’s where barkada’s are all dressed up to hang-out and teenagers busy taking their selfies. 

4. Sleep. I know we’ve been taught about all the benefits from getting enough sleep, but still here we are wide awake at 2 am. Lack of sleep make you gain weight and increases stress. 

5. Don’t ever cheat. Any form of cheating is bad, you’ll end up fooling yourself. 

6. Never listen to sad songs when it’s cold. Ever. 

7. How I Met Your Mother could never been more right when they pointed out that nothing good ever happens after 2 am. 

8. Throwing a party does not make you feel better. I was feeling really terrible on my 19th birthday so I decided to throw a little party. Trust me it did not made me feel better. 

9. You can never pause time. Even if you close your eyes the whole time. Things are still happening. Life doesn’t stop for anybody. 

I am not kidding or exaggerating when I say James Blake is a life saver. But if rock bottom has a soundtrack that would be his Overgrown album. 

I’ve heard about his music for some time now and I gotta be honest. I did not not like it the first time I heard it. Like Youth Lagoon. Sometimes for me, I just hit this certain time and just by then that perfect song/ album falls into that right moment and then boom! perfect! 

It’s been a terrible beginning of a year for me. 2013 did not went as good as I wish it would be. As much as I want to kiss goodbye to all those tears, pain and regrets, my 2014 did not start off well too. And I just lost it. There was this one time I was so ready to quit everything, even school. I was gonna write this long letter about how I’m ready to give up my school even though Im already in the middle of my term. Yes it was that bad. 

But then I stumbled into this music blog and there was this post on James Blake and then I heard Retrograde for the first time. Of course I have listened to his past songs and I might even heard Retrograde on 8tracks but at that song fell into the right place. Couldn’t be more perfect. 

What I’m saying here is that not everyday you come around some song that mean so much and has this “soul” into it- that makes you feel alive and even how cheesy this might sound, that there is something beautiful out there. 

So here’s to James Blake and his song that made me go through the the worst nights of my life.
