Life Lately : Half of July

Moody skies and unpredictable weather is all over my life lately.

Lately I’m used to book-movies-tv shows sessions. I know it sounded lazy and unproductive. But we should let ourselves relax a bit and travel to a place where we don’t need to move.
With those books and the stories they had, I managed to travel to places. Since rainy days are here and traveling is not tht safe this is the best thing to do – to read.



I’ve read and gladly I finished The Traveler’s Gift. It’s a book recommended by Joana and it was really inspiring and this book made me write in this blog again after a long hiatus.

The seven decisions it shared in the book inspired me to become a better version of myself. I also recommend it for you to read it too.

I will persist without exception.


Crazy Stupid Love is a 2011 comedy/drama film:

Cal Weaver (Steve Carell) is living the American dream. He has a good job, a beautiful house, great children and a beautiful wife, named Emily (Julianne Moore). Cal’s seemingly perfect life unravels, however, when he learns that Emily has been unfaithful and wants a divorce. Over 40 and suddenly single, Cal is adrift in the fickle world of dating. Enter, Jacob Palmer (Ryan Gosling), a self-styled player who takes Cal under his wing and teaches him how to be a hit with the ladies.

It’s beautiful and crazy how every character defines love in their own lives. Just like us we judge some kind of love but ends up doing that same kind of love in the end. We can never really now what waits for us when it comes to love. We just need to accept that sometimes it can change you. Just hope it changes you for the better not for the worse


Game of Thrones Season 7 just ended and I was noe in a waiting game. Excitedly and patiently waits for the next season which will air a litte late for April 2017. Yessss that long, because winter is coming!

So, I needed to have something to watch while I wait for my favorite show. I find comfort with koreanovelas since college. I love how there stories are so touching and Filipino-like.

One of too many lined-up shows that I just finished was She Was Pretty:

A romantic comedy about two past acquaintances who meet again after they went through reversal of fortunes and appearances.

Kim Hye Jin was a very pretty girl from a rich family. After her family’s publishing company went bankrupt, she experienced hardships and then lost her beauty too. Ji Sung Joon was an unattractive boy with low self-esteem, but grows up as a handsome and successful editor. As fate would have it, both of them end up work at the same magazine publishing company. 

Would you love someone just for his/her looks alone? For me, it’s not about the physical. It’s all about his/her attitude, values and how he/she will treat you. Don’t get blinded by those beautiful brown eyes and charming smile. Always look for the heart. ?

How about you tell me what’s happening in your life? Share your stories and let’s talk about life!
