Can Someone Buy This For Me, Please?

The problem with being in college is the lack of funds that I have for anything more than the essentials. I’m not exactly what you would call a struggling 20-year-old student but I can’t say I can just throw away what money that I have for stuff that I want. So it truly pains me that I can’t buy this anti-aging product that I found online. It’s by a small company called Joy & Karma and as far as my research has told me, it’s been getting positive reviews so I’m not that worried about its quality.

Now, please, can someone buy this for me? *puppy dog eyes*


Because I’ve been feeling a little bit down on myself, I’ve compiled some fitspiration quotes that I think can help anyone else who’s feeling the same way. I mean, I am not in any way anorexic or even that depressed. It’s just one of those days I guess where you can’t help but doubt yourself and feel insecure about the little things.

Summer Love Thing

When I said I would be busy with college stuff, I didn’t really think I would have waited two years to post something. TWO YEARS! Omg I feel so awful. *sob* At least no one would accuse me of not getting my priorities straight. Ha!

Seriously though, two years is a really long time! I apologize to whoever has not given up on my blog though I’m not surprised if every single one of my readers have abandoned me. OK, I’m stopping the pity party right here.

Because IT’S SUMMER!!! To celebrate this wonderful and exciting season as well as my sudden reappearance in the blogosphere,  here are some of my favorite songs that are currently stuck on repeat. Enjoy!

Busy College Puts Blogging On Hold

Blogging may be put on hold for now. I’m so busy with college and my job that the only thing I do when I get home is sleep. What started as something to do when I am passing the time is now something I can no longer do because I have no time. Since I do not do anything half-assed. I decided to pause on blogging for a while and prioritize the important things in my live mainly my school and my job.

Of course, if I find the time I’ll continue to blog. But at present, it may be months in between posts. College work is really very busy. Sure the classes may be few an far between but schoolwork does not end after class. In fact, the only reason people attend class is to get more schoolwork added to their deliverables. I’ve already complained that I hate my major’s penchant for many practical exercises. While I don’t normally shy away for this kind of work, it’s just irritating because practical exercises are not scheduled in a practical manner.

Sometimes, I have to run really fast from my work just to be able to join on a practical exam. My TA is not that helpful as well. Oh well, I cannot do anything else but to just suck it up and soldier on. I wanted to live the college experience and this is something that I have to persevere on.

Unfortunately, part of my perseverance requires me to stop blogging. I barely have enough time to study let alone blog. However, I am not deleting this blog. It is still a part of me and I want to actually use this blog to chronicle my college life. I just need time to manage everything and see to it that everything is in order.

This is why, there will be a pause in the new posts for now. If you just discovered this blog, then I am sorry because I won’t be updating this for away. However, do stop buy in a few months as I’ll be doing find by then.

See ya!


Happy Birthday to Me

It’s my birthday! I can’t wait for tonight’s dinner. I have been going on a strict diet lately and I have also been working out so I’m definitely looking forward to having my cheat day. That means I can eat whatever I want. I can already smell the pasta and the delicious chocolate cake that I would be eating tonight. All my friends are coming as well.

I’m 19 and loving it!



It feels really good to see the results of all my effort. Like I said, I promised to lose weight and I am absolutely proud to say that I have lost weight. I’m definitely not skinny but I feel great about my body. I’ve always wanted to feel healthy and fit and I believe that I have achieved my goal. I can’t wait to celebrate this amazing feat! I never really imagined myself to be this determined and focus on losing weight. But now, I have actually done it.

Now readers, if I can do it, so can you! Go for it! Nothing is really impossible.


School is Not Always Cool

Sometimes I really hate my major. It requires a lot of practical stuff and true, there isn’t a lot of studying involved but applying all the theories we discuss in class through projects and more projects can really get crazy. I haven’t even been updating my blog all that much lately. It’s because of school and we all know that we have to sacrifice in order to be successful in life.

Don’t worry guys, I’m not dead yet. I have just been really busy and hard at work.


No Pain, No Gain

I went to the gym again today. This time, I was with my good friend Therese. She’s such a good sport and even though she didn’t need to lose weight, she accompanied me. Sometimes, working out can get very boring and discouraging especially if you do it alone. It really helps to be with a friend when you go to the gym. Don’t you agree?

Today, my gym instructor totally got me beat. He made me do cardio but this time, he let me try the elliptical trainer. I sure love the treadmill more. My joints hurt all over after that workout. But it felt good because it was supposed to be more effective on the thighs. Perfect, since I really want to have firmer thighs but how I wish there was a shortcut to that painful and exhausting experience.


Celebrity Secrets

It really amazes me how celebrities can just get pregnant and then soon after giving birth, they simply look hot and sexy, as if they didn’t even get pregnant in the first place. What is their secret? Of course, what money can buy in Hollywood.

Actually, these are supermodel moms.

Miranda Kerr

Karolina Kurkova

Claudia Schiffer

Heidi Klum

Giselle Bundchen

I always joke to my friends that I would never get pregnant if I didn’t have a trainer ready for after I give birth.
