THE SUNDAY CURRENTLY VOL. 29

READING

Daily comics from this cute app that I downloaded called Tapastic. Check it out!

WATCHING

The Amazing World of Gumball.

LISTENING

THINKING

Of initiatives for work. I want to spend this weekend not thinking about anything though. Zzz

WISHING

 

For my left leg to have more strength. Apparently its a weak spot I’ve discovered when I was struggling with lunges.

LOVING

That I have the friends that I have to keep my stay in Singapore more homely than if I’d just be living here by myself.

THE SUNDAY CURRENTLY VOL. 28

READING

Cosmos by Carl Sagan. I went on a 40-minute long bus ride and decided to continue reading this. I was half-successful since I spent the next half falling asleep on the ride.

WATCHING

Anomalisa. I’m continuing it since I fell asleep on it last night. (I see a pattern here.)

LISTENING

THINKING

About what makes a relationship “official” official.

WISHING

For more time to (you guessed it) sleep.

LOVING

That I finally went to the Night Safari last night!

THE SUNDAY CURRENTLY VOL. 27

READING

The Wake by Scott Snyder and Sean Murphy. Exciting stuff! I read the first issue about two years ago, but only got around to read the graphic novel yesterday. I love Sean Murphy’s art style.

WATCHING

Aziz Anzari’s Master of None. It’s funny, but not quite there yet. At least not in the first two episodes I’ve seen so far. So far to me it’s been a series with a “just okay” rating.

LISTENING

THINKING

About some personal things. I’m a bit confused with how things are right now.

WISHING

For more clarity, please.

LOVING

That I got plenty of rest in Manila these past couple of weeks.

THE SUNDAY CURRENTLY VOL. 27

Lost Stars

I keep coming back to this song. I remember hearing it for the first time, and bawling my eyes out since I was trying to recover from a breakup.

A few weeks later I heard it on the radio while driving to work with my sister, and my eyes still bursted like a couple of semi-deflated water balloons.

And now, to me it’s just a bittersweet song that I like singing passionately on karaoke.

Songs have a funny way to amplify feelings, no?

__________

Someone pointed out to me that I like putting labels on things, especially music.

“Oh that makes for good workout music.”

“This sounds like something I’d play with the windows down, when I’m driving fast on the highway home, coming from a long day at work.”

“This song is good for long walks near the ocean.”

That really is how I categorize the music that I listen to. In a way it also helps me remember things since I use songs to associate to different memories.

  • I remember listening to a high school friend’s copy of the Chrono Cross soundtrack while I was doing a procrastinated review for my Biology exam the day after.
  • I remember listening to Seal’s “Kiss from a Rose” while sitting at the back seat of my dad’s old Mercedes, on one traffic-filled day underneath the flyover in EDSA Timog.
  • I remember listening to Jose Mari Chan’s Christmas tracks while we were also stuck in evening holiday traffic in White Plains.
  • Etc.

So yeah. This post actually doesn’t have a point, except that I use music to help me with remembering things. It’s great, because sometimes it’s just great to close your eyes and be overwhelmed with an image of a memory and just be flooded with these inexplicable emotions that was brought about by a song.
