Sometimes you really just wanna get that out.

New Listenings

Running on two hours of sleep again!

Last night was amazing!

Damn.

I want to sing and play the guitar like that. So much oomphh!

(Photos are from valenciahannah.tumblr.com because my phone is crappy)

Didn’t get to go to alone to the gig but it’s better with a friend!

I’ll try that solo gigging thang some other time :)

(Speaking of which, if the event was just like that I’d have NO PROBLEMS WHATSOEVER. Might look out for female artists next time for my solo gigging stint)

***

I NEED MONEY FOR TRAVEL GOD PLEASE

I also have a list of what I want to procure short-term.

WORK WORK WORK then.

I overslept @_@

Lounging Dog

Random photo for random posts.

I would very much like to have a pub called The Lounging Cat.

But lounging dogs look cool too :)

***

Had a good two hours of sleep.

It felt like a Friday yesterday due to meeting month-end goals so I got home at one AM and woke up at 3:30 ish. I’ve been a little disoriented with time these days. I actually did my overtime yesterday when I remembered it was scheduled for today.

Anyway, we discovered a REALLY good isaw place in front of El Chupacabra and damn, I can eat that forever.

The Korean “family” KTV near the sports bar was pretty bad and I can’t imagine how the place would sound like when the rooms are full. No soundproofing! (and unisex washrooms boo)

It is a good place to scour alone before evening comes (if you’re just food trippin’).

Just a reminder, if you’re female and there alone 7pm onwards, you’d most probably be picked up by some old geezer.

***

I’ve been on sloppy wear for two days now.

Not in the mood to make much of an effort.

***

EXCITED/SCARED/NERVOUS to do solo gigging later!

I do have a friend Down Under who I can call on Viber so we can share the experience together!

But I will still be physically alone huhu.

Also, I WILL rely on my beer, yosi and phone.

*panic attack*

***

Trying to detox (a bit) today before the event later.

I ate loads yesterday and they were all junk/fatty food.

Maybe the visitor is up.

***

While we were all busy in trying to meet our targets for June, apparently the Makati City Hall had problems of its own yesterday.

So who’s telling the truth?

Gigging Alone Research

Oh, the horrors of being a tall, awkward girl.

It’s quite easy eating out alone or going to a movie house by yourself but watching a gig alone, I HAVE NEVER DONE THAT.

Usually I always cajole someone into coming with me by paying their entrance tickets but I wanted to try something new for this week.

So I’ll be going to a gig alone on Wednesday!

PLEASE DON’T CHICKEN OUT.

I’ve done some research and generally, five rules stood out:

1.) Do not rely on your phone too much

smartphone

WHY HUHU

Obviously, it distracts you from meeting new people.

Do I want to meet new people?

:p

2.) PEE FIRST

ladies-restroom-map-symbol-hi

NOW, this is the best advice EVER for me since drinking beer brings me to the toilet like 4-6 times a night.

The rationale here is so you won’t lose your spot.

3. Drink (or smoke)

Amsterdamjpg

Which is a no-brainer for me since I do both.

It allows you to kill time and makes you look like you’re actively involved in something.

Whatever that means.

But it does make you look less stupid.

4. Tell someone where you are

In case someone kidnaps me?

5. Socialize and enjoy!

gigs

Now, this is the HARD part.

Oh gods, why wasn’t I born less awkward.

BUT I WILL DO THIS! :)

wpid-img_20150626_1.png

I’ve been here for almost four years now.

Different roommates, different neighbors, two different units.

I’ve experienced six floods and a few heartaches here too but I always felt good turning four different keys in just to get into the room.

My room has seen its fair share of drunk (or high? haha) people and happy music and I couldn’t think of a better place to be in (or to move to).

It’s inexplicable how I feel at the start and end of everyday as I hold my yellow cup of black coffee in my right hand and a stick of Lights on the left, gazing out into the semi-far off business district I have gotten to accept.

Contentment perhaps?

Happiness of different degrees, yes?

It all boils down to how you view things I suppose.

I hope there would be more of those dusk and dawn moments for pondering.

I’ll be a cat in my next lifetime so I can do this all day. I wouldn’t mind this same place for it as well :)

I’ve slept better. But last night was okay.

Maybe it helped that it was my sister who woke up and turned on the AC (when needed).

I can’t do anything else though if someone is around MY HOUSE so I sleep early.

And she’ll be loitering there TIL NEXT WEEK.

I want to get back to my hermit self.

***

 I GET IT sir.

I’m just too…insistent.

***

I ate too much today.

Most probably will be the case til the weekend

***

So many good gigs coming up next week!

Unfortunately, two of them have been scheduled on the same Saturday :(

I haven’t gone alone to a gig ever.

Can I do it?

*panic attack*

I might go to that 3D event on Wednesday at Saguijo (I know it shall be astounding!)

I have to pass up on BSide’s Razorback-Greyhoundz-Wolfgang stint on July 4.

At least on the other Saturday gig at Route, I have a girl date *hee*

***

Busy weekend. No time for much talk.

The Bad Hobbit

Haven’t had too much luck in the sleep department as of yet.

I tried sleeping EARLIER this time like 730pm (yuck) so I could catch some shuteye but still the same number of interruptions. It doesn’t help that my sister was staying with me and she couldn’t sleep too because INET PLEASE (and small bed).

Maybe next week :(

***

wpid-20150612_224607.jpg

My books are gathering dust on the shelf.

These are not what I have though, this was a photo taken from Bookay-Ukay at Maginhawa :)

Mine are hard-bound ♥

I also don’t know what to do with those LAE books with me. Should I return them?

***

I was stalking this really cute girl (again, I’m straight) on Facebook and I accidentally liked her photo posted from a YEAR AGO.

PANIIIICCCCCCCCCC!

Doesn’t this happen to us all anyway.

:/

***

I feel so unproductive yesterday as I haven’t checked on most of what’s on my to-do list. I just ate an early dinner and had brandy and smoked and went to sleep.

***

SUPER EXCITED TO WATCH BULLET DUMAS LIVE ON THE 4TH. North hits! And then maybe 70s bistro for Neen’s Paramore night :3

Also, Cara dates are always ze best! looking forward to a lot of things these days.

Sleep with Butterflies

wpid-img_20150613_5.jpg

I haven’t been sleeping right for the past two weeknights.

Haven’t been sleeping properly since Friday anyways but during workdays, I can sleep from 9 or 10 to 3AM with just as much as ONE interruption to that.

Now, I try to sleep at 8 (wow) and then I wake up at 930 and then 11 and then 1230 and then 130 or 230am before I hear my actual alarm at 330am for my coffee/cigarette engine rev. I feel so frazzled.

It doesn’t help that I can feel myself tossing and turning and kicking my pillows around while in some shallow state of sleep.

What the heck man.

I don’t think I’m even stressed over anything other than the fact that I can’t sleep well!

Maybe I’m in love.

Not.

Bear Habits

I said I’ll hibernate right.

I will from IG. Because I’ve been flooding people with my senseless posts and I am shy nao :3

I’ll just stalk people from the shadows #creepy

I’ll be active here though! Or not. Depends. No one really reads this anyway. Well, as per the stats page I do have like, 5-8 readers from the US, 3 from China, 1 from Russia, 1 from Slovenia and some other country I’ve never heard of.

So this is pretty safe I think.

Wait, NOTHING is safe on the internet :/

***

I wonder why a lot of people have been asking me about them party things the past week. Like five of them. Yun na ba ang uso ngayon?

I’m open to it but for the first time I’d prefer to have it either in the safety of my home or a trusted friend’s. Since I still have no idea how my body would react to it.

***

Heehee.

Trending ang post ko of my father’s shirt with an ex’s name printed on it.

Was my pun a little too soon?

I thought it was funny.

***

I’ve watched like two or three local movies in my life. Yung hindi indie films ha, like John Lloyd-Bea levels. AND IT WAS FUN. Because THE CROWD. Sa kanila ako natatawa. So much reactionz :D

***

A scatterbrained cat needs to write things down

wpid-20150622_071923.jpg

And yeah, I have really bad handwriting.

Sabi nila pag pangit ang sulat, magaling sa Math.

So bakit two takes ako sa Math 17 at 100? Nadaya yata ako.

***

Rainy season ♥

It’s no longer bright and glaring when I go out of the house in the morning.

Also, malapit na ang times na kelangan ko ulet mag-init ng ligo tubig yahay.

***

I have a new girl crush!

Carissa Ramos of Mean Jay ♥

MJ

And they play the blues (and classic rock I think). AND SHE’S A BASSIST.

Combo breaker!

Still quite sure I’m straight though.

***

I can’t wait to go home.

And do my chores.

#TitaTimes

Stars

So…wow.

What a long and weird and fun weekend. I haven’t slept properly since Friday but this is how it is (to pretend) to be young!

My mind has already gone back to work mode at this time though so I’m already jotting down my to-do list for this week before it slips my mind. I need to buy house things like a proper toilet seat (I want those flowery ones), coffee grounds and what else. Oh, and banking/accounting shit!

I hate being an adult :/

***

Friday was a total weirdo as there were three batches of people who came to my (very small room of a) house for dinner and booze. The food already ran out by the second batch but I have a lot of alak in the fridge so we got by. Hiyep, living alone perks. I quit drinking and went to sleep around 830 in the morning and my stocks are depleted. Need to do groceries for tomorrow. Also, BRANDY.

I had around 4-5 hours sleep before I had to get ready for Fete. I haven’t gone to it in years (except for that quick walk-by the Rock stage last year where we got scared by the crowd haha) and the list of bands/artists were quite appealing. We were only able to watch a few though and we didn’t even make it to our friends set because of the hasel rain. But I enjoyed Julianne and Brigada anyway. We can watch the others separately some other time. We walked a lot and drank a little so it was a sober night. Ran into a lot of Music Circle people and friends too!

God, I hate my sentence constructions.

We all got home around 230 ish in the morning and I had two hours of sleep before I needed to get ready again to go to QC. Father’s day thingeh. I did some chores around the house before I crashed. And then I’m back here again in Makati.

I need to hibernate this week. From a lot of things.

***

Friends have been making assumptions on those who might have a special interest in…my welfare. I am a very assuming young lady but my feels are a bit dead on this. Hope it’s nothing but shallow observations.

There were also some things I’ve been thinking about since they were mentioned to me the last time. my immature self would most probably lash out and confront the person about those dark, little secrets he kept from me but then… IT DOESN’T MATTER ANYMORE.

I’ve been saying this quite a few times these last two months. If I stress myself out thinking about all those possibilities, will it take me anywhere really?

Will it be worth it?

Most probably not.

***

I think I scared off my Tinder crush. I couldn’t help it. He seems to me like an old friend of sorts and subconsciously I’ve been talking to him like how I would my ladies/guy friends. Which comes off a bit bastos perhaps. AND THAT’S NOT HOW FLIRTING WORKS, they say.

While my back was turned, the rules of flirting and dating have changed AND I HAVE NO FUCKING IDEA.

But it’s all good. I hope it’s one of those instances where you can wing it.

Also, advice from my expert friends on Tinder (HAHA shout out to Alessa my Tinder manager na magugulat na lang ako sino mga pinagsaswipe right-an), never take the app too seriously. Most probably the guy is just looking for some action 😂

***

I need some sleep. And vitamins.

Seriously though, I really bring around Flanax tablets because I am afraid of toothaches and this baby works.

I just really feel old. Hay.

Random shit.

***

The Written Word

Love letters are dead.

 I wonder if anyone still writes them.

 I have always loved writing letters and reading them even way before but I suppose that’s not the way the world works anymore. I am not good in conveying my feelings through a conversation. I prefer listening to the person who’s talking and usually, whenever I try to express how I feel (especially feelings like anger or disappointment) I tend to clam up and not say anything worthwhile at all.

 Hence, the massive communication gap (with whomever, not necessarily a significant other)

That’s why I write.

However sloppy my sentence construction is. However inconsistent my tenses are all throughout the paragraph. However bad my grammar is.

That way I can still think about what I actually want to say. I can still Google the most appropriate word for a certain feeling I am trying to convey. I can still imagine how a certain sentence would sound like if I say it this way or how I could assume a person would react as they read it.

But apparently there are not a lot of situations where you can just write what you think.

I should learn how to say things as it comes.

Hinder Tinder

You know those times when your mind is so madaldal it annoys you?

But of course, I annoy a lot of other people as well. So type, type, type.

***

I didn’t get around to what I wanted to say yesterday because…distracted.

Ficke pickle I am.

Speaking of which, I downloaded THAT app again.

I just liked the same two or three people anyway.

What does that say about me?

:/

I am finally liquidating my dormant assets (weh).

Hopefully, I can get rid of my last gaming set.

I’ll just buy that console again when everything is on the uppity-up!

I shall miss my Demon Hunter sorely :(

***

I now know four songs on the guitar! I still can’t sing with it properly though.

And some chords are still a bit muted.

Stupid fingers.

***

I haven’t been eating properly these past two months. I suppose living alone promotes erratic eating habits. I CAN cook but being in the house makes me lazy and before I could remember that I was actually hungry, I’ve already retired for the evening.

But hey, weight loss and less food expenses.

I should just drop by Little Tokyo/Nihon every now and then to indulge.

ASARI BUTTER CLAMS HUHUHU ♥

Here’s my current kill-time/to-watch list:

1.) Arrow Season 3

2.) White Collar S1 S2 S3

3.) Flash Season 1

4.) The New Normal Season 1

5.) Normal Heart

6.) Pushing Daisies Season 1

7.) Halt and Catch Fire

8.) The Fall

and most probably a lot of other movie classics I haven’t gotten around to even list down.

I haven’t even watched/read memoirs of a Geisha yet.

AND I SHOULD FINISH THOSE BOOKS ON MY SHELF WHAT HAVE I BEEN DOING.

I should stop stalking my current crush :/

Found the schedule on HeyEvent!

I think I’ve been posting this every  year but I wasn’t even able to go to the last two installments even if they were both in Makati. I forgot why though.

This year I’m eyeing two stages:

1) The rock stage – because friends are playing! (i.e. COG and Small Hands)

2) Acoustic stage – because Julianne is there and I wanted to see the other artists too

Looking into the sched, the SKA/Reggae stage is located at the BSIDE courtyard anyway (right outside the rock stage! Is that a good idea?) so we can just switch anytime.

Here’s the list at this time (I suppose other locations/bands are TBA)

(I remembered last year we might have dropped by at Bside for this but it was a sea of kids in black so we went to Guijo instead for Terno Inferno night @_@)

Anyway, hopefully we can all go this year! :)

(before Alessa leaves huhu)

Maundy Monday

“It’s early in the morning and I ain’t got nothing but the..blues!”

LSS everyday until 9am.

It’s a good song of course. Along with “Is you is or is you ain’t (my baby)”.

I should expand my playlist more though.

(I started this post early in the morning but it has been quite busy so…here)

This photo was taken by Zash when we dropped by UP for a jog plus dinner/beer. I missed UP and apparently it has changed A LOT since the last time I’ve been there.

There has also been a recent, DUBIOUS fire right in the heart of the campus, as an old establishment was razed during the day, when no one was around.

CASAA-2-0613-660x495

(Photo from Inquirer)

There had already been some information that admin was already planning to lease out the lot to commercial establishments from before but there were numerous protests from everyone so it was put on hold. I’m not able to confirm this yet but some tenured CASAA employees were laid off from last year and the rent for individual stores spiked up too.

Whatever the cause, we can only reminisce on what is now lost.

Milo Freeze! :(

Busy day! :)

Lots of paperwork and business updates. I’m wondering sometimes if I already have the discipline to venture into self-employment again. Probably not. Or maybe I can only find out if I’m already in that situation.

I need to keep ticking on that checklist.

Ah.

It’s a good thing one of my college friends reminded about ‘respect for work’.

That’s why I really admire those mature enough to understand that not everything might go their way but that they can still strive for perfection (or close to that). That they will still do what they can to earn their keep ^^

***

It’s raining outside.

Big, fat drops of rain as I could tell from how it sounds falling on the plastic roofing of the laundry area upstairs.

Hope it cools down the night :)

***

I NEED INSPIRATION.

For motivation.

 Time to get back to my guitar lessons :)

Sunday Blues

11392841_10152966975112106_5428079024414307739_n

I had a long weekend of sorts.

Too many activities for the week along with a four-day work sched that tricked me into thinking I was on vacation.

I’ve even been a little impulsive too and went to an unfamiliar place for something. And as I have a very poor sense of direction (even if I followed those goddamn apps specifically Google Maps/Waze), we got lost a bit. Obviously, I’m a QC girl through and through. Thank Jeezaz for supportive friends and Uber. I’m not quite sure what I intended to accomplish with that move but it’s better not to think too much about it now :)

Thinking about my FREQUENT lost episodes, it would be one of the reasons why I think it would be a waste of time for me to start learning how to drive (at this age!). I’m a panicky, finicky, fidgety little git. Plus my parents would most probably get a stroke if they try to teach me now. My mom did try four years ago and all I could remember was AHHHHHH!!! BRAKEEE!!! KAMBIIINNGG!!! Yep, never happened again (and yeah there were like three goats crossing the road sa subdi…I don’t now where they were from). In any case, I need to enroll myself into some driving school.

Again, I am distracted. Anyway, this post doesn’t have a specific topic. Like ALL of my posts.

It’s a wonder you’re reading this.

It’s feels quite good to be typing from an actual keyboard for this blog. It’s just either from a tablet or my crappy phone and they both hate my sweaty hands. Doing this with BB King in the background (like most mornings) and my second cup of black coffee. Might have a third one. Or a Guinness would be good (last one in the fridge!). It’s been some sort of a hormonal weekend too because of…what else. I prefer to be alone right now lest I lash out like a pit viper. It’s NOT a good reason to be a b*tch but even if you’re really REALLY careful, you still have lapses. Oh, I KNOW.

Done with the laundry too and now I’m wasting my precious time alternating between White Collar season 1 (MAAATTTTT) and folding my sheets (and typing). Don’t you love the smell of newly-laundered garments? I always preferred doing the laundry instead of ironing clothes because it makes me feel cooler. As in temperature cooler. Also, I AM definitely waaaaay behind everything concerning TV shows because I tend to fall asleep during my supposed solo marathon schedules. Or I get distracted with other things. Like the evil internet.

Rest assured I can join your Game of Thrones/Walking Dead talks when…it is already a thing of the past.

BB King still doing his thing in the background and I am wishing to hell and back that I could play the blues. I like listening/singing along to general rock genres too but when it comes to actually performing for a crowd, I prefer to dish out flirty, curvy, swirly music (like I like my art!) and it would be easier for me if I could play the guitar, that way at least I could play for myself (all my previous bandmates are up north and have moved on without me *cry*).

I AM trying to learn the basics of playing the guitar again and I am a bit pressed in the coordination department. It is hard to time both the strumming and switching of chords to how the lyrics are inserted into the melody. So far, I can do a sloppy version of a certain boyband’s song. Hello 90’s! Will try harder as I shall be hibernating from activities this coming week (hopefully). An orgmate (and colleague) gave me the advice that I should practice every morning as soon as I wake up. And since I wake up around 3:30 – 4am for my yosi/coffee, I hope the neighbors won’t mind *grin*

(I’ve been on-and-off typing for four hours now. Says a lot about my convolusions…)

I ate my vegetables like a good girl this morning. And boom, stomachache. Like the last four or five times I ate Samgyupsal. I HATE VEGETABLES WITH A PASSION. But I need it :(

I had also been tagged recently on an old gig photo (my Alanis hair huhu) and rewatching videos of it make me cringe. I can do a LITTLE bit better now I hope. BUT it’s all about having fun anyway.

Ah, I like this Sunday. So chill.

Switched from the King of Blues to Updharmadown.

We can always find a perfect thing to do for everyday anyway so…contentment *ohm*

(Let me now distract myself first with guitar stuff…)

Aaaaand it’s noon!

Veering away from my usual random stuff (this post is becoming too long to read, hopefully, anyone who had the bad luck of coming across it has already quit reading after the first few sentences), I’ve been thinking about semi-recent events.

I can never resent the memories and lessons I’ve learned from the whole experience. It’s been a good three years and I can only be thankful for what it made me now. I am never perfect of course, so I am looking forward to what’s coming ahead so I can learn and mature from it. I just like reminding myself every now and then that I shouldn’t rush things and that I should be more consistent with what I say and do.

Change. I was born in it, molded by it. I didn’t see the light until I was already a… ah, sorry Bane. I want to memorize his full line one day and then there should be a situation where I could recite that. I just remembered it because I am huddled inside my dark, small apartment, hiding from that goddamn sun. I keep on forgetting my sunglasses when I go out and..HEADACHE. I know I should wear my prescription glasses but… tigas ulo, sakit ulo. May mefenamic naman.

Anyway let me finish Bane’s famous script excerpt…

…man; by then, it was nothing to me but blinding! The shadows betray you, because they belong to me. I will show you where I have made my home, whilst preparing to bring justice. Then, I will break you. Your precious armoury, gratefully accepted. We will need it. Ah yes, I was wondering what would break first. Your spirit, or your body.

…or your diet.

Ah, life.

It always deserves a beer.

The Kings Awakening Art Print by Kerby Rosanes

kerby

His art is fun and refreshing and very curvy and swirly. Just like I like ’em.

I’ve been following this person recently and I would really want to get my hands on his book. I want to color it! ♥

(I won’t murder it I promise. I hope.)

I can’t stop people from asking about ‘that’. I shouldn’t mind but I don’t know why I get cranky when people ask me quite a few times a day (and mostly those people really don’t care, they just want to know).

Some also keep updating me on what they’ve seen on some social networking site and I find it unnecessary.

Anyway, chill guys :)

Have gone back to smoking and it’s been three months and I haven’t exercised AT ALL during that time (unless frequent house cleaning and laundry count) so I was only able to do 2.2k yesterday at the UP Acad Oval before cursing my knees to the deepest depths of hell.

I should do this gradually.

I need to remember I was almost doing 5k a day three months ago. Minus smoking habits though.

I’ve recently downloaded Tinder for the fun of it (like what everyone says). And then I deleted it just a few days ago too. I haven’t been sent any of those DTF requests at all HAHA.

For an awkward person like me, it just wouldn’t work methinks. I should just go about this the old school way and meet people through friends and live experiences.

I did get one major crush from that app though.

It has been unrequited.

These past few days (or months?), I’ve been trying to go out more amidst budget constraints. Don’t get me wrong, no one actually kept me from NOT doing so before but there was just this feeling of sensitivity with going out with certain people.

My schedule and budget is mush right now and living alone (although I’m quite happy with it really) is a bit heavy on the wallet but I can never exchange it for the ecstatic feeling of meeting new people and going to new places and immersing oneself with new experiences.

I need to make do! So work, work, work when I can ^^

I feel like I have so many things to say.

But it doesn’t matter anymore.

BERLINARTPARASITES

“I am slowly learning that some people are not good for me, no matter how much I love them. I deserve someone who is gentle and kind, because my soul is getting tired. Realizing I deserve something good is the first step.” – Michelle K.

Glass Box

Tequila gives me a headache. Brandy helps clear up my skin the next day. Having both… won’t do that again.

I think I might also have a thing for glass containers (and glassware). They’re really beautiful and they look so delicate *sigh*

But most probably I’d break them sooner than later.

I want March to end soon. Gruelling.

New Old

I want my coffee as black as the deepest depths of hell.

Sometimes.

Other times I want to go all cutesy and put lots of cream and muscovado. But it still needs to be strong enough.

There will always be something wrong with the system. There is so much chaos in the world due to the systems we have created for ourselves.

Maybe if I just push it to the recesses of my mind it won’t be true.

I tried to do a breakdown of my expenses again. 1/3 of my money vanishes on FOOD.

Intermittent Nonsense

People congratulate you when you stop. They also welcome you when you go back. These are different types of people though, but it’s nice to know.

***

Am still under my Thranduil-stalking phase.  I’ve gone to the deep end and started on reading fan fictions.  It’s hard to get past all the articles that are just focused on smut. It aint all that bad though.

I’ve been trying to do intermittent fasting for a few weeks now and I’m always so hungry. The idea is that you only eat during a certain time and you fast for a minimum of 16hours (including sleep time). So if you think about it, you can eat anything from 9am-5pm and then you let your stomach digest that food for 16hours. Does that make sense?

Apparently there are a lot of variations on this but since I am working from 6am-3pm I don’t have the option of doing the other types because I shall die :p

I don’t have the heart to do it. Not now.

I have also resorted to viewing photos of food (mostly Japanese) during work. I am that hungry. Cheese on toast would do too :(

I don’t usually enjoy “DJ” music but I need to keep an open mind as I shall go to Summer Siren 2015 (yay!)

I would prefer my usual band lineup though (Franco, UpDharmaDown, Urbandub etc ♥)

And I shall go with new friends! As they are all quite skinny though I need to stock up on large shirts and maybe I should buy some pepper spray to ward off creepos haha.

Both my Baguio ground and dark roast Yuban coffee has gone off on me and the world has ended. Imagine smoking with flavorless coffee. The horror. Maybe it’s my coffee maker. Anyway, this weekend I shall acquire these ^^

Starbucks recycled coffee press (to keep all those flavorful oils in! And because it’s cheaper than most *sigh*)

And Dunkin Donuts coffee! I want the one in the can though.

And maybe that Pokemon game for my neglected 3DS (totally unrelated).
