Recap: August

August, oh August. I frankly don’t know how I would describe this month. It contained an equal amount of highs and lows. I found my moods swinging from being happy and feeling great one week and then rapidly sinking down the next week. It was an inevitable cycle.

But I’m positive September will be better. For now let’s go back and take a look at what happened in August:

(Also I noticed I haven’t done a Monthly Recap in ages! I need to do more of these.)

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.

I was in a reading mood in February but I ended up only finishing two books. The good news? I loved both of them!

  • Carry On by Rainbow Rowell – 4 / 5 stars
  • Stars Above (The Lunar Chronicles #4.5) by Marissa Meyer – 5 / 5 stars

Recap: January

January to me served as a sort of “trial” month as I wasn’t able to accomplish anything grand. I mostly spent it watching shows, bonding with friends, and working on low-key projects. Not really a big way to start 2016. So I am hoping this February will be more focused on real-deal stuff.

Here’s a recap of what happened in January 2016:

Recap: November

Hey all! I know I’ve been missing in action lately and here’s why: November was a darn hectic month. Because of that, I didn’t get to work on blogging more, getting back to the comments, and putting up the entries I was hoping to put up that month. Hopefully December will treat me better.

 

Sleepless Nights

I was (and still am) working on different projects where I had to meet quick deadlines. A lot of complications happened along the way too. It’s especially hard because I was pretty idle the months before this and then bam! Overwhelming work. It got me so worn out physically, creatively, and even emotionally. That being said, I now look back and realize that despite the craziness, I still wouldn’t have changed a thing. Because I picked up some learnings. I learned to make more use of my time, stick to my To Do lists, and to work faster too. But the one of the most important things I learned is that I should make rest a priority too. It’s only last weekend that I did get to have some rest after a while and it felt really good. Health is important and I feel I need to sometimes slow down and take care of myself too.
