A Beacon of Hope

IMG_8338

Dear Wonderful Reader,

In spirit of my Vintage Delights post, this pretty little thing came into my life. Its a clock radio, circa the 1960s, that is miraculously still functioning. It only works if its plugged in and the radio is super loud, however the sound quality decreases the louder it gets (don’t know if that due to its age or the mechanics back then). It also have a “sleep” feature so you could listen to the radio before you go to sleep and then it should turn off by itself. Also, you CANNOT miss its alarm sound, it creates the loudest buzzing noise I have ever heard that annoys the hell out me and (hopefully) will make it impossible for me to want to go back to bad. Alas, a beacon of hope to keep me punctual. Or so one hopes.

Personal: Spring 2014 Bucket List

Dear Wonderful Followers,

IMG_2605

  • Here is a picture of me taking from a rather interesting angle, for those of you who are wondering, “who is this girl?!”.

So lately I have been blogging about stuff that I liked/cared about that I wanted to share with you. But as I was scrolling down I noticed that while the majority of those posts represented me, they¬†weren’t exactly about me. And what’s the point of a blog, if its not personal (or at least personal to some extent)?! It’s never easy to be really personal, and I know you understand, but I trust you. So, I am going to share with you my Spring Bucket List. Not sure if I’m using the term Bucket List correctly here, but whatever!

I have never done a Spring Bucket List, so this is my first one. I would love for you to conduct one too and share it with me (or not!). Just because it’s nice to have something to look forward to, like Mr. McConaughey mentioned in his Oscar’s acceptance speech, even if it’s something little. So I am going to post it here and on the last day of Spring, I’ll revisit it and we can talk about it.

My Spring Bucket List

1. Pray everyday

2. Go to the gym everyday

3. Blog everyday

4. Get a Henna Tattoo

5. Get a Tattoo

6. Get a job that I enjoy

7. Connect with old friends

8. Read at least five books (I would share them with you, but I have no idea what I am going to read but I know that “Love in the Time of Cholera” will definitely make the list. Feel free to recommend me any books=])

9. Do good deeds to my family

10. Experiment with arts and crafts and create/learn five DIY projects

11. Experiment with cooking and baking (Yum!)

12. Get a haircut (or not! I still haven’t made up my mind, but I find it much easier to manage my hair when it’s shorter, since it’s so curly.)

13. Make the most of my weekends

14. Well, there is this serious issue that I am facing at the moment and I tend to put off what I’m supposed to do regarding it cause thinking about it makes me kind of anxious. So, I shouldn’t be doing that! Guys please pray for me or just wish me well (if you don’t pray). So yeah don’t forget to tell God about me in your prayers, please!

15. Stay true to myself

P.S. Notice I didn’t put a period after each task, cause they’re still “unfinished”. lol

Dear Wonderful Reader,

I feel really strongly about this song at this moment, and I wanna share it with you.

Suit Case by The New Electric Sound

Wake me in the morning
I don’t want to sleep very long.
I’ll unpack my suitcase
only if you you pick up the phone.

Only if we could say we’re sorry.
Only if we could say we’re not.
Only if you could say you loved me.
Only if I was the one.

Wake me in the evening
I don’t wan’t to get out of bed.
I’ll pick up my laundry
only if you open the door.

Only if we could say we’re sorry.
Only if we could say we’re not.
Only if you could say you loved me.
Only if I was the one.

I don’t want to waste my time.
I just want to dance all night.
I don’t want to wait for you all of my life.
I don’t want to close my eyes.
I just want to dance all night.
I don’t want to wait for you all of my life.

Wake me in the weekend,
I don’t care if sleep too long,
I’ll take out the garbage,
Only if you pick up that phone.

Only if we could say we’re sorry.
Only if we could say we’re not.
Only if you could say you loved me.
Only if I was the one.

I don’t want to waste my time.
I just want to dance all night.
I don’t want to wait for you all of my life.
I don’t want to close my eyes.
I just want to dance all night.
I don’t want to wait for you all of my life.

I told you I’m never gonna leave again.
And I swear.
You told me your never gonna cheat again.
I don’t care.
Tell my heart a million times,
and that won’t change me none.
If we need some time to think girl,
you’re not the one.

I don’t want to waste my time.
I just want to dance all night.
I don’t want to wait for you all of my life.
I don’t want to close my eyes.
I just want to dance all night.
I don’t want to wait for you all of my life.
