Hello, just a quick update before taking my 3D exam cos it’s Wednesday night and we have no internet at home. I cry. Nonetheless, I hope everyone’s safe! I am still not able to blog because crazy week + three hosting stints this coming week!!! + Sun’s internet is down. Thank you for all the lovely messages! I promise to write as soon as I can. I’ve read a ton of books during the storm and I can’t wait to share a lot of things to ya! Plus, new favourite books. I still feel drowsy and tired maybe due to academic work and the bipolar weather. Au revoir! (for now)
Stay inspired, kids!

Laugh it off and learn to love the questions themselves.

Back to school, back to night class selfies

So I was listening to music while doing a 3D character and my friend Rae passed by and we decided to have a selfie break. There are tons of photos but these are a few that I managed to save on my iPhone from the Mac lab.

Tuh-da! Here’s a quick character turn around sketch I did. They said it’s easier to animate mechanical things like robots and cyborgs hence the robotic joint movements but I want mine to be fluid even though I know that it’s hard :-) Well, good luck to meee! I seriously need a new laptop though like a high performance one for all my digital art, editing and 3D… but I know God will provide! :)

P.S. Happy Independence day! I know someday we will truly be free. But for now, let us not dwell on the negative things in our country, rather, empower ourselves that we need and can do something to change for the better. (That was quite big and optimistic for me to say cos I usually hate our government and don’t even get me started. Haha. Cheerios!)

I’ve got both war and poetry in my head

There’s so much going on and I feel excited to take more risks and just be. Slowly, but surely. Oh and hey, we should enjoy being ourselves. 

Do not worry, be happy.

Simple, yes. Stop making it complicated. Life is temporary. It isn’t forever and that’s what makes it special. ‘Cos we are reminded to just enjoy and take things lightly and to just love and give it our best shot. Make mistakes, make more mistakes, fail and succeed. Cry, laugh, jump, scream, eat whatever you want, hug someone, kiss someone, tell your parents you love them, wrestle your siblings cos they won’t be kids forever, forgive others, forgive yourself, when someone is being mean to you repay them with kindness cos they need it the most, be understanding, be loving, appreciate the little things; cold morning showers trickling on your skin, being able to drink a cold glass of water on a hot summer day, having lunch together with your family, breathing, being able to sing even if you got the lyrics wrong, feeling your own heart beating after a merry laugh, appreciate it. You are you and that’s a wonderful thing cos no one can be you and as well you cannot be others. Take risks and do whatever makes you happy. You can be genuinely happy and it will shine out of you like sun beams with sun kissed cheeks and glowing eyes. Promise me to try again, to never give up on yourself, cry if you must, but when you wake up in the morning, even if you feel like you’re dragging yourself outta bed, I’m reminding you that it’s never too late, you’ve got another chance, and it’s amazing to be alive.

Hi, I am Pauline, I like disappearing once in a while to find the meaning of life. I also like listening to sad alternative songs at night and jumping and dancing to pop songs in my pajamas in the morning. I have my breakfast at lunch and lunch during dinner. I try to sleep early but it doesn’t work for me as much cos my thoughts keep me up at night and I try to write them down on my journal and once in a while blog it here in my little world on tumblr. I find myself more and more detached to the world all the while being attached to more important things. Does that make sense? No? I figured. But it’s okay, I don’t get myself too at times. I believe in my hopes and in my dreams although it’s hard to do so sometimes. But I hold on anyway and find renewed strength in me. I keep saying “I believe” until I believe it myself too. I don’t like religion but I undeniably believe in the Higher Power and love. I believe in a lot of things, haven’t you noticed? I don’t know, I must say I am a romantic and I am okay with that. I hate indifference, it makes me sick. I want to make everything beautiful around me and that will be my life. I write a lot too, I don’t care if it’s bad or insanely good. I just want to write and read and write and draw and do a lot of other things. I don’t really care a lot about people but I especially like the positive ones. But I try to love the negative ones too, cos I think they need it more. I must say I’m an extrovert and introvert all the same. So if you wanna join me in this journey of mine, you can if you want to. Come along.

I think books are magical little suckers. I believe that when we step into a bookshop or library of some sort not knowing what to buy or pick out just leafing through the sea of stories sifted in covers embracing it within, we don’t go find books; they find us. Like an inevitable pull of gravity, something that is for us, will come to us. The right books will find a way to us. Talking as we jerk a tear, making us smile at just he right moment, making us realize things that we forget and providing a much needed escape to another realm and providing us with brand new lenses when we go back to our own reality. When we step into a bookstore, not knowing what to buy, go on and allow yourself to wander. Feel the spine of the books, your finger tips gushing unto its skeleton and ripping it open. It unveils itself to you, for you, just as you are with it.

The girl with messy hair and a thirsty heart;

Today was a wonderful summer day. The road was sparkling, the sky ever so blue, the trees were at their greenest and the laughter was certainly not few.

I had a chance to recuperate my thoughts whilst on the road staring at the sky, counting cars and drifting into a daydream while The Beatles was playing. It was nice to get away for a while.
I had grown closer to grasping this certain feeling I was talking about. I felt this certain change in perspective and I said hello to photography once again, unknowingly I was living the things on my Summer list. I also reckoned that, “There is beauty in everything, but not all can see it” that is why we must try harder and appreciate the beauty around us. Yes, even our untamed hair and burning cheeks under the scorching sun. I also felt a certain peace in our Visita Iglesia trip. We do this yearly and I’m glad our family is a happy and close one. I’ll post more photos tomorrow! Dear Summer, I must say, so far so good. 

Some Sunday morning scratch painting sketches; EyesYep, that felt like a tongue twister. Ahhh it feels good to have paint on my hands again.
