The two posters I’ve designed for a summer event here in Iloilo. Just click either thumbnail to view the contact details on how to buy your tickets. And don’t miss the chance to kickstart your summer by partying with Sunsation’s special guest Laureen Uy, and more importantly, me! Because my friends and I have been planning to go out after a very long time and take a short break from our spinster lifestyle.

Starting my week with all the good vibes I could think of. So here’s a photo of my dad and sister being extra adorbs! I’m also back to my NCLEX review after two months of finalizing my paper application (in reality, I was actually bumming around and enjoying my extended R&R therapy). All that’s left in my checklist is to register with Pearson Vue and finally set a test schedule! The mere thought of taking this final step sends shivers down my balls. But all in all, 2014 is going well with lesser hassles than expected. Thanks, Papa J for listening to all my prayers. Love life na lang, please? :>

I will get my writing mojo back, but until then I still have one more poster to finish. Keeping my fingers crossed that this’ll be my last Photoshop order for the entire summer!

I’m so tamad to make update my blog, so this has to suffice for now. Sorry, blog! But everyone’s celebrating Dinagyang in Iloilo. Apart from the festival fever, photography has been consuming most of my time lately (hence, the daily Instagram update) as a way of coping with all the Photoshop stress since day one of January. And the job orders seem to continuously pile up, some of which I had personally chosen to ignore. Time to unwind!
Also, thank you suntoyourmoon for sharing the conyo version of Do You Wanna Build a Snowman #hahahahaha and posterkidforhappiness for taking this shot :>

Back to basics. I like taking pictures of things. Sometimes they come out as artsy, sometimes they’re a bit mundane, or underexposed, or noticeably grainy, or any other alibi that would prevent me from uploading them. Also, I’m quite obsessed with detail and structure, which applies to mostly everything I do. And I tend to be overly critical of myself. But who isn’t really? Coming from an entire generation that’s deeply immersed in self-indulgence, you are not alone when you feel inadequate and awkward and flawed.

Acceptance is an actual human need, but every so often we fixate ourselves too much on the idea of being acknowledged. Expectations invoked by society turn into thoughts and frustrations become lost souls. But at some point, you’re going to realize that we’re all a little broken, that scars are probably one of the most beautiful things in the world because they remind us that we’re survivors, despite being inadequate and awkward and flawed. *cue Miley’s Wrecking Ball in the background*

Don’t fret over your fear that people are going to judge you, because they will. But that doesn’t mean you’re going to stop doing the crazy things. By crazy, I mean mentally stable crazy, not the killing spree/Dexter kind of crazy. Bottomline: Love yourself, you socially awkward person.
