The past weekend has definitely been a productive one. I’m proud to tell you guys that I haven’t been skipping classes as often as I did in the previous school year. I can actually count the number of classes I missed so far, unlike last year. Aside from that, I also participated in the DevCom General Assembly last Saturday. It’s something I have to be proud of because for the first time, I actually attended the yearly event.

Yesterday, I went on a fun shoot with my group mates in my major subject and three friends who are in the mood to model for us. One of the requirements of our major subject is to conduct a seminar this September. My group and I are focused on organizing one about the Freedom of Information Bill for our 30+ fourth year high school audience. Instead of shelling out our own pockets for the seminar’s budget, we thought of doing a photo session to raise funds instead. It’s something creative, fun, and productive at the same time.

So ladies and gents, let me (and my group) present to you, “The Indie Project”. A music festival fashion inspired photo session that will happen on July 26 -27, and on every Sunday of August. The best-est part is, I’ll be giving away two slots to two lucky winners! 

Here’s how to join:

IMPORTANT! When you leave a comment in this blog entry, do not forget to include your complete name and email address.

Not only do the winners get a free slot in the photo sesh, they will also have a chance to be featured here! The giveaway starts tomorrow until August 2. This is my first ever giveaway and I really hope you guys would join! :) For questions, you are very welcome to send me a message or email at: indigorocketeer@gmail.com.

It has been a tough few days and these songs have been my instant source of good vibes. I’m still trying to figure out how 8tracks work so for the mean time, I’ll just give you guys the youtube links of those songs.

Oh and excuse an old photo of mine. That was taken a year ago when I decided to tap some of my artsy fartsy friends to take pictures of me. It was sort-of their birthday gift for me haha! That was the most awkward thing I have ever done so far.

Enjoy the songs and let happiness and positivity radiate not just for a day but for the entire year! :)

Just when I thought that no other pizza place can surpass my ultimate favorite, Good Fellas Pizza opened up a few weeks ago and proved to me that I haven’t found the best yet. 

Pizza has always been something that doesn’t only make me happy but also something that makes me forget about all the stress I have been enduring. For the past weeks, school has become more than the bitch it was before. It’s still prelim period and I am already under in so much pressure. The opening of Good Fellas Pizza happened at the right time. The morning after the soft opening, I invited my good ol’ high school girl friend to try the place. It was a perfect afternoon to de-stress and catch-up with someone I haven’t hung out with ever since the school year started. 

Big Joe, a.k.a The Godfather of All Pizzas, was the best pizza I have tasted so far in my history of pizza-capades. It was a 9-inch full of pepperoni, ham, bacon, sausage, and beef. But that’s not the best part. Aside from the fact that it’s packed with different kinds of meat, the melted cheese and the drops of hot sauce sent my soul to cloud nine. It was that good. To be honest, recalling how good it was makes my tummy rumble right now. 

Good Fellas Pizza doesn’t just have the best pizzas you can’t get enough of, but they also have awesome decorations that gives the whole place this certain sleek and funky vibe. It’s like every pizza lover’s heaven. 

If you’re planning to visit Cagayan de Oro soon, you’ll miss half of your life if you’re not going to visit Good Fellas PizzaOh and if you’re thinking of having a milk tea x pizza combo, cups of heavenly milk teas are just a few steps away! :) 

Good Fellas Pizza is conveniently located at the second floor of Sweet Leaf Bubble Tea and Cafe, Pabayo - Chaves Branch.

R E A D I N G -  A Map of All The Ways I Have and Have Not Loved Myself by Isa Garcia. I have always been a big fan of Isa’s writing. I have visited her blog a lot of times ever since I discovered a year (or two) ago. I can relate to most of her blog entries on a spiritual and emotional level. It’s like she’s talking to my soul.

This blog entry talks about the constant battle people have with their insecurities and the feeling of not being enough; something I’m very familiar with. And it reminded me that I have always been enough.

W R I T I N G -  another entry for The Sunday Currently. Anyway, remember the story I wrote in Wattpad? I thought of cutting it short at first, but I couldn’t find the inspiration and the motivation to continue it anymore. I was full of pain, disappointment, and frustration when I wrote it before. Maybe I’ll find the inspiration and motivation I need to continue it someday.

I might start writing something new again so yeah… I hope you guys take a portion of your time to visit and read it :)

L I S T E N I N G - to Please Don’t Stop The Rain by James Morrison. In my honest opinion, I think James Morrison is pretty underrated. His songs are really good and I can say the same about his voice. His songs are like one of the perfect songs to listen to during a chill day. 

T H I N K I N G -  about what’s in store for me in the future. To be honest, the future scares me so much. I’m already in my second to the last year in college and a lot of people have been asking me what I want to do after I graduate. My answers change every time because I honestly don’t know what’s going to happen to me after all this.

I’m scared about what my parents would say if I get a job that doesn’t fit my course. I mean, they’ve always wanted me to take up a course that’s more “in demand” like computer science or business administration or nursing. They wanted me to take up a course that (they think) has a surefire job after college. When I told them I wanted to take up Development Communication, all they ever ask me was, “So what exactly are you going to do when you graduate in that course?” Maybe it’s just me but I think they’re not confident that I’d find a job that will put whatever I have learned in my course into good use (and a job that pays well too).

And that thought scares me shitless.

S M E L L I N G - the rose-y scent of the moisturizing lotion I used a while ago

W I S H I N G and H O P I N G -  I could touch lives, inspire people to do more and be more, and effect positive change in a certain community.

Let me just share to you guys about the photo walk I joined with my fellow journalism classmates for our photography class yesterday. We were tasked to document the charity program in J.R Borja Memorial Hospital Home for the Aged and Persons with Disabilities. The recent candidates of Miss Cagayan de Oro were the guests of honor. Instead of photographing the fun and excitement outside, some of us went inside the building to photograph more interesting subjects

Most of the people living there are rescued street children. There are also grandmothers/fathers who were abandoned by their children and/or grandchildren. My heart was already breaking into pieces when I saw the street kids, but it broke even more when I saw the nanays and tatays. Their situation is downright heartbreaking. Not only are they suffering from loneliness, diseases has also struck them. 

I want to do something big about it but all I could ever do that time was to photograph them, listen to their stories, and let other people see the pain that I saw through the photographs I took. 

W E A R I N G - a pair of PJs, a loose shirt, and my hair tied up in a ponytail; the usual pambahay get-up

L O V I  N G -  the positive feedback I got from finally creating a Facebook page for The Wandering Dreamer! :) 

I’ve been wanting to create a page for this blog a long time ago. I wanted to share some posts from this blog to Facebook without bugging everyone in my friends list. I feel like I’m disturbing a lot of people whenever I share the link to my blog in my personal account. Not a lot of people want to see it in their news feed ya’know. I want to update the people who are really interested with the blog.

To everyone who liked the page, I’m sending you a super tight cyber hug to express my gratitude. I’m thinking of doing my very first giveaway so I hope you guys will join once it’s out :)  

W A N T I N G and N E E D I N G- a 35mm f/1.8, a 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6 lens, and a external flash for Voldy (the Nikon D5100 I own). He’s turning a year older this August 5 and I hope I can buy him either of the two lenses or the external flash.  

F E E L I N G - anxious about school and work. 


So how did your weekend go? Join the blog link-up!
