30 Day TV Show Challenge: Day 1

Day 1 — A show that should have never been canceled

It’s got to be How I Met Your Mother. 

Oh gosh. I have learned so much on this show it’s crazy. It’s fun yet there’s the lessons that you won’t miss even if you want to.

Like the quote, “Nothing good happens after 2AM”. We all try to ignore it. We say the fun can still go on after then but that’s not true. Something always go wrong after 2AM.

The show went from 2005 to 2038. They could have shown it for that long as well and I would watch it. It’s tears, laughter, that warm fuzzy feeling.

I feel like I’m friends with them all this time, like I’m part of the gang. I groan everytime Barney makes slimy remark. I have this nerd alert in my head every time Ted goes academic. Marshall’s singing would always make me smile. Lily’s honest and brutal truths always hit me hard. Robin’s different personality is always just refreshing.

Gah, this show.  Alright, time for another rerun of the 9 seasons.

List 10 Things that Makes You Happy

  • Books

Well  of course, books! Mystery books, YA books. All kinds of YA books. Sherlock Holmes! Harry Potter! It depends on my mood. I like YA badasses so I’m very much inlove with Ally Carter’s Gallagher girls, Pretty Little Liars,Divergent. When I feel nostalgic, I look for vampire novels as well. There’s something about them that makes you want it.

Favorite authors include JK Rowling, Sophie Kinsella, Cecelia Ahern, Jenny Han, Jennifer-Lynn Barnes, Jennifer Smith, Jennifer-Lynn Barnes, Kasie West.

  • TV Series

I like to read because it kind of shows me what’s happening in my head but when that doesn’t satisfy it, TV series are the next best thing. Of course, there’s the cop series, political and murder-ish, comedy and all. I learned so much from TV series as much as I have from books. It just cheers me up.

We have the classics– How I Met Your Mother, Friends, The Big Bang Theory. Cop series–  Law & Order SVU, CSI: NY, Chicago PD, Quantico, Elementary. My badasses– Scandal, HTGAWM, Blacklist, Suits. Science Fiction– Doctor Who, Travelers, Black Mirror, Z Nation, Teen Wolf, Brooklyn 99,  Orphan Black, . Other comedies– That 70’s Show, Full House, Fuller House, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Don’t Trust the B*tch in Apartment 23, Two Broke Girls. All time favorites– Gossip Girl, PLL, 13 Reasons Why, Riverdale.

I have two series I feel so proud I found.. Timeless and Leverage. You should check it out.

Yes, I’ve been quite busy. Netflix has been a companion these days. I should write a separate blog post for each series.

  • Friends

When I’m not binging TV series or doing a readathon, I’m with my friends. I like the drama, the gossip and just the classic rumors. High school friends and I like to guess who’ll get preggy next and other shitty things like that.

What I like most about them though will be that they can be there when I need them. I have a tighter knit of friends than before that withstood certain life events and issues. (Issue/problem magnet here!). And I try to be there for them as well! Cheers for friends!

  • Music

I don’t sing very well but I can hold a mic in karaoke sessions. I like music and how they make me feel.

Sometimes, these music can also serve as a nostalgia of the certain times of your life. I don’t like it but it sometimes reminds of me of difficult times or those things I regret.

  • Beaches

Ever since my boyfriend and I started traveling, I’ve always had a soft spot for beaches and the sun. I like seeing the sea so calm and hearing the waves. It also calms me. It reminds me of how beautiful nature can be. Beaches for me are happy places.

  • Pasta and wings!

With an exclamation point because these are my favorite food ever! I could alternate between these two foods forever. They can be different flavors and you can do so much with them. I just love them so much!

We have a local coffee shop near my office where I just love their classic carbonara. It’s so creamy and I just love it so much. For wings, Frankie’s and Wing Stop would be my go-to places.

  • Clouds and sunrise

I love clouds. I love the skies. I love seeing the clouds every morning. I have a 4AM job so everyday before the sunrise, usually around 5:30, I love to stand in front our 20th floor window overlooking the mountains of Rizal where the sun would rise in a few minutes. The colors of the skies are to die for. Sometimes it’ll be plain, sometimes it’ll show the colors of the rainbow gradient style. The clouds are like feathers. Then we can see the sunrise signalling the start of a new day. Oh gosh. It’s my favorite time at work.

  • Lipsticks

Since matte lipsticks came into play, I have just been so inlove with them. I have different colors. (Not too many. Maybe six or seven colors) I just adore it so much. I love playing with them and mixing it up sometimes. I like seeing them in shelves at stores. (Nowadays, I avoid it because I need to be an adult and save money and be boring)

  •  Big Bang & G-Dragon

The music of Big Bang is so relevant to me. It had always brought me to a happy place, a safe haven where I can always enjoy myself. From the upbeat sounds of Bang Bang Bang, Fantastic Baby, to the slow music of If You and Last Dance, I just love it so much. And you know what? They have a member who writes almost all of their songs. It got me through some bad times. And always been a creative faucet for me. When I listen to them, the creative juices just starts flowing.

My talented baby, Kwon Jiyong AKA G-Dragon. He has just been such inspiration when it becomes to writing. He is also successful as a solo artist. I am just so inlove with him.

  • Mc Anthony

My significant other. When all those 9 bullets fail, this is one sure proof to make me happy. Just being with him is happiness.

It’s crazy because he’s the reason why I am sad sometimes and he’s still the one I want.

Day 7 – Five pet peeves

Day 7 – Five pet peeves

 

Why only five? Haha. I admit it, I can be a high maintenance companion and I do have some pet peeves that can put be in a very awkward situation with other people.

1.  Repeating things

 

When I’ve said, I’ve said it. I can’t repeat it for more than three times. Or I get super duper annoyed. Like I want to shake you or just punch you in the face. You can’t make me repeat something I’ve said for more than two or three times. It puts my mood off.

 

2.  Asking me things and not believing my answer.

 

Like srsly? Why ask me in the first place? If you don’t trust me then ask somebody else. Don’t ask me.

 

3.  People who makes plans to do things together but never goes through at the end of the day

 

So like, everyone, right?

 

4.  People who thinks they have to lie to me

 

I would very much prefer for you to just tell me the truth, thank you very much. It would help show your remorse and that you have good intentions. I’m very accepting especially if you tell me the truth. I like honesty!

 

5.  Freeloaders with faces as thick as their asses

 

This is especially at the office. Like, it’s okay if you don’t have any money to contribute to the team lunches. Tell us and we’ll understand. Don’t make it seem like you’re not like that but you totally are. Like, I also don’t know what I’m saying. Hahaha. This specific one is mostly an annoyance to a specific person. I don’t like unfair people.

 

 

 

Day 6 – My views on mainstream music

Day 6 – Your views on mainstream music

 

I honestly don’t know what to say about mainstream music. What exactly is considered as mainstream music?

So according to urbandictionary.com, mainstream music is music that’s usually on the radio, Top 40 and is well known to the general public.

All right. Well that clears it up, doesn’t it?

Hmm, so mainstream music would be One Direction, Drake, Rihanna, The Chainsmokers, Ariana Grande, etc.?

I would think that music in the past year is much better than the previous years. Of course, there are still some that focuses on T&A’s but it’s much better now. It has meaning even though it’s not what it’s like before. I guess it focuses more on the beats and bass rather than the message. Compared to the previous years though, I think music is getting better again.

I only started listening to mainstream music when I started my job at Alorica. I focused my music genre on Big Bang before so it’s good to rediscover this stuff.

It’s catchy and all.

Day 5 – Things you want to say to an ex

Day 5 – Things you want to say to an ex

 

I don’t have an ex lol. I haven’t even considered other people I dated B.M. (Before Mc) as exes. But the challenge did not really specify ex-boyfriend. So I’ll be writing to an ex-almost.

Fuck you. It was one thing to stain what we almost had but it’s entirely different when you betrayed my trust. I trusted you with personal things about me. What hurts is the fact that I thought that maybe, even if we couldn’t take whatever what we had to the next level, you would still have some sort of respect in me. That you would still value the friendship we had. That was enough for me but you proved that wrong last week.

You are by far, the most vile human being I have ever met. I’ve met a lot of people but you had no conscience. I just want to shake you and ask you what the hell is wrong with you.

I just expected more from you as a friend. That’s it.

I can accept a lot of things but what you did was too much. It just showed me how wrong I am for trusting you. How I should’ve trusted myself when my gut was telling me that you are someone I was supposed to stay away from.

I gave you the benefit of the doubt and you fucked with that. You fucked with the people that gave you that. Try fixing yourself for a change. Like really, really fixing yourself. I hate you so damn much. But I don’t care anymore. You are just so, so awful. Rot in hell and I hope karma gets you good.

        Day 3 – A book I love

        Ahhh. Where do I start? When will I end? Lol

        Day 3 – A book you love

         

        Ahhh. Where do I start? When will I end? Lol

        I met someone a couple of months ago and it was my first time sitting down with this person. Reading books excites me more than shopping or just plain going out. So expectedly, I asked this person about what books he loves. He mentioned some philosophy books that I have never heard of before and says he’s not into the YA kind.

        I’m 20 years old and other than mystery books by PJ Tracy and Lena Diaz, I pretty much stick to Young Adult novels. I have preferences on the genre but YA all the way!

        So this person, a year younger than me, said he didn’t like YA. That was okay for me. I could roll with that. I’m open to learning new things and I ain’t afraid of philosophy books. (lol!) But then, he said something that was so much of a deal breaker. Like I seriously cannot look at him after that. I even considered leaving right at that moment.

        He said and I quote, “I especially don’t like Harry Potter. It’s a waste of time.”

        *silence* I seriously wanted to use seven books of awesomeness to choke the guy. Suffice to say, I didn’t see him again.

        So yes, a book that I always love talking about and I will always love are the Harry Potter books by JK Rowling.

        I won’t probably be able to enumerate all the reasons why but my life was molded to the lessons I learned from reading the books.

        It all started with a reading assignment when I was in 5th grade. We were supposed to read a book. No specific ones and submit a book report about it. So my aunt and I went to a bookstore and I bought the thickest book I found.

        Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

        Yes, the first time I read the books, it wasn’t in the chronological order. (I’ve read for a hundred times now xD)

        It’s like the escape to Hogwarts from every book was what I needed. It sparked a light in my mind and showed me how imaginative and creative I can be. (Reason #1)

        Lessons from the books does not need a deep analysis but it also wasn’t just there. I can’t put it into words, exactly, but I live my life largely influenced by what I’ve read and learned from the books.

        From the friendship of the Golden Trio to Draco Malfoy’s upbringing. Let me try to enumerate some…

        • Real friends will go through anything with you.
        • Darkness never wins.
        • Some people didn’t want to be bad. They just didn’t know any other way. (ILYSM Draco Malfoy!)
        • Love always wins.
        • It’s okay to be different because real friends will accept who you are.
        • If you love someone, you can go through lengths to show it to them. (Always!!! *cries for Snape*)
        • Parents will do anything for their child. (Praises to Narcissa, Molly & Lily!)
        • There are many types of bravery. (Hi Neville & Snape!)
        • Loved ones never really leave us.

        Phew! I’m sure it’s not just that. There are many, many more. I love how the things they experienced on their extraordinary lives, we get to apply to our good old Muggle lives.

        I can rave about this series all day.

        Other books I love and learned a lot from:

        • Tuesdays with Morrie
        • One Hundred Names
        • The Notebook
        • A Walk to Remember
        • The Female of the Species
        • Perks of Being a Wallflower
        • My Not So Perfect Life
        • PS I Love You
        • Falling into Place
        • All the Bright Places
