Watercolor Art Post

As some of you may know, painting with watercolor is a hobby of mine. So today, I thought I’d share some of my works that I haven’t posted here yet. Some of them are new while others are months old.

To view some other works I’ve shared, click here. If you’re thinking about trying watercolor painting for yourself, I recommend checking out these posts I made:

My Favorite Things: April 2016

Hi everyone! I hope everyone is having a great month so far. I have. I know I’ve been out of the loop again due to this blogging slump (it’s a thing, I guess) + the fact that I also use a shared laptop. But I’m back at least for now, and I will be checking on all your blogs and the wonderful comments here too. Give me a few days to catch up.

For now, here’s a list of My Favorite Things from April!

Timeless Thoughts: American Idol

The American Idol Season 15 finale and supposed last-ever episode aired last week so I thought I’d talk about it for this month’s Timeless Thoughts. It made me quite emotional because I’ve been watching this show since I was in elementary school. It will feel strange not looking forward to a new season next January.

Though I wasn’t a completely loyal fan having missed a few seasons, I still got to experience the show in its peak. I was a constant visitor at VoteForTheWorst.com during its strongest years, was familiar with some fan terms and the whole WGWG thing when it started, and even managed to put up a fansite to support my favorite contestant: David Archuleta.

The show used to be such a staple in my household. We would gather as a family to watch. Yes, it would get suuuupper cheesy at times but that’s part of the fun of it!

I still remember being in elementary school and freaking out when I saw Jasmine Trias in a mall show. Though, not in person as my mom and I had to leave before her show started! That was the first of many memories to come from this show.

Recap: March

Behold… My veerrryyy late March recap because I forgot to publish this post. (Oops!)

 

March flew by so quick! Here’s a recap of what happened in my geeky life.

 

A Food Trip

I don’t really get to hang out with my friends anymore, though it’s not such a problem because we’re all introverts! However, one afternoon we just felt like going out and having a food trip. We went and explored Maginhawa Street in Quezon City. It’s this small street with a lot of food stalls, food trucks, and independent restaurants- basically a foodie’s heaven!

Our itinerary: Lunch at Gastronomeats, Dessert at Caffera, and Poutine at Canadian Snack Shack.

Signal Boost

Just a little segue from all the stuff I normally post about here.

So a good friend of mine is undergoing a very tough time in his life and he needs all the help he can get. Johnny, one of my closest friends in college, is in need of financial support because his dad was recently diagnosed with Stage 2-3 Esophageal Cancer. It just happened this March 2016!

His dad underwent an operation last week to get the tumor-infected esophagus removed and have his stomach pulled up in its place. As of this post, Johnny’s dad is still recovering in the hospital. The donated funds will help mitigate immediate costs such as the surgery, professional fees, and other medical fees, as well as the chemotherapy sessions.
