It’s already October now and here are some snaps to summarize my September!
In 1 month, I produced 13 videos, wrote 6 blog posts, shipped out preordered Rainbow Care Packages, got a new part-time job, decluttered & sold old and used clothes + furniture pieces,.. and realized a lot of things. Thank you September for making me “crazy”. Crazy enough to make me ask myself everyday the question “How much do you want to make this work?” … which would always motivate my perpetually tired self. The answer is always “Helll yeah” so there lol.
Anyway, more words later and let me just share these photo collages first! ^^
My current pen collection. Thank you friends (hi Abbey) for spoiling me!
My room still probably looks like it’s so packed, haha! I already decluttered at this rate, lol!
How I store my stationery ~
Indomie lunch & random kombini finds
Prettiest local subway ever
With the super talented Kate!
She will be having a booth at Tokyo Design Festa too so please support us! ^^
Barely had enough sleep but seeing this corner of Carebears Stationery at PLAZA Ueno really cheered my spirits up!
After such a long time, Armaine & I finally met up! She’s currently a government scholar here! Follow her for Tokyo art school updates 😉
I earned some money from decluttering! Thank you Gil for helping me out a lot.
These train phone cases are epic + 250 YEN Traveler’s Notebook from Daiso.. o m g?? Watch out for my unboxing video this week! ^^
Preview of my shipping station at home + overwhelmed by the Rainbow Care Package support! :O
This is what my current Hobonichi diary looks like ~
Donuts + Chocolate + Icecream.. wow
Unearthed this scrapbook I made when my boyfriend introduced me to his family for the first time. He also showed his old HS scrapbook when I introduced him to my older bro + family here lolol
Thanks for inspiring me to improve my Japanese! 🙂
Hellllooooo lifeee …
Last month was a super FUJI Q-like rollercoaster ride for me. “Rollercoaster ride” in terms of juggling work & working on my dreams, balancing everything, keeping myself healthy (physically & mentally), and the like. Instead of focusing on the negative things I couldn’t control in my life (I just knew that a family member back in PH has a serious disease which is still something I cannot stop thinking about since I’m in Japan), I am doing my very best to focus my remaining positive energy onto more productive activities (a.k.a. generating multiple streams of income for certain goals). In this way, I can save up more money so I could go home (Manila) more comfortably next year.
September was crazy but I’m still very much thankful about everything that happened. I got to know who my real friends are (friends who’d support me unconditionally even if I don’t explain anything) and I learned how to be more assertive when it comes to work. I got a new part-time work in a different company (thank you Alyssa!), I had a great time substituting for my friend as an English teacher (5 straight classes in the afternoon wew).. and I feel like I have evolved as a person again after this month.
October has just started and I hope that I’ll grow more and improve in different aspects as a person this time too. 🙂
I guess that would be all for today’s lengthy post~
Thanks for reading and for sticking with me,
