Victorian era

Summer Girl

I just had the most stressful day of my life. Three days from now is the book launching of the hardest manuscript I ever handled, and we were only able to transmit the proofs for printing today. Oh, the joys of being an editor!

I’m a little relieved though that the printing office will start working on it as as early as tonight. I’m crossing my fingers that everything will work out fine. Maybe it’s time to avail that massage in New Manila, yes?

I’m glad the sky stopped pouring its heart out. Aside from my workload, this past week’s weather was so gloomy and irritating. Who wouldn’t feel that way when you’re living on the fourth floor but the flat is  flooded! Amazy crazy! Besides, I only like the rain when I’m about to sleep. 🙂 I’m a summer girl, you know. I’ve always loved the sun and the trends for that season, like there’s always a reason to smile and be happy, hence the photo below:

I’ll end this post by a song performed by my favorite actress, Leighton Meester. As I’ve said, ’cause I’m just a summer girl. 🙂

Bring Me to the Woods

It was about to rain when we took these photos in Tagaytay. I’ve been dying to wear corsets because they’re so Victorian and I happened to have fascination with British royalties, hence the course I’m taking at University of the Philippines-Diliman. Imagine my delight when I learned that I passed their admission exams for a master’s degree in English Studies: Anglo-American Literature! After six years of waiting, I am finally enrolled in my dream school. My dad so wanted to be an Isko as well (Isko/Iska, I learned, is a name for students enrolled in U.P.) but due to inevitable circumstances, he was forced to study in Ateneo de Naga (also my alma mater). Nevertheless, I can still say my college experience was not mediocre.

The above photo was taken just by the side of the road. Nonoy had this wonderful idea of using only a chair and the nature as the props for the photo. The result is quite nice don’t you think?
