The Sunday Currently #1

Reading 

Just started on Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale. It’s already the tail end of May, and I have yet to catch up on the books that I’ve been meaning to read this month. However, I’ve been reading a lot of articles from various publications too, such as the longform piece on Blac Chyna and the Kardashians, as well as the profile on presidential (ugh, it’s becoming more permanent now) son Baste Duterte. Both pieces are compelling, fascinating reads.

Writing 

This entry, plus a few pieces for Philihappy.

Listening

 

I’ve been listening to a lot of hip-hop lately, particularly Chance the Rapper’s Coloring Book mixtape and the Hamilton soundtrack.

(P.S.: this song is my top pick from Coloring Book)

Thinking 

About tomorrow’s job interview, and my writing portfolio.

Smelling 

Peppermint tea.

Wishing 

Improved self-confidence, better poise, social skills, a better Philippines, and more writing opportunities.

Hoping 

That tomorrow’s job interview will go well, and that I can balance my day job with writing gigs if I get in.

Wearing 

An old shirt from college, and my brother’s shorts.

Loving 

Peppermint tea, my new Maybelline Rosy Mattes lipstick in Salmon Pink (which is a beautiful pinky nude that can be a dupe for the Kylie Lip Kit in Koko K), Snapchat, and great company.

(P.S.: The dog filter on Snapchat is my absolute favorite)

Wanting

More time, and self-confidence.

Needing

To lose weight, and more writing assignments to keep myself afloat (creatively and financially).

Feeling

Bloated, due to the amount of junk food that I ate earlier this afternoon.

Clicking

I’ve been reading Carl’s blog quite a lot for some time now, and his stuff is pretty great. I’ve also been reading articles on CNN Philippines Life, and one of my goals at the moment is to be able to write for them in the future. And oh, do check out Philihappy too because I’m pretty proud of the things that we’ve released there so far!
