It Won't Be Soon Before Long.

Finally, the scorching heat of summer is gone. I usually get my inspiration in writing from looking outside my window, and as I finished writing my previous post, it started to rain. There is something about observing raindrops on my window pane that makes me feel serene. I'm sure you have found yourself watching rain drops race on your car window and silently cheer them on.

Back To High School.

Today, I decided to style my hair in a different manner. Styling it like this makes me look younger, more like a kid, a high school kid, which was perfect for the occasion.

The former seniors of the SACB, our student council in La Salle Green Hills, planned a surprise party for our club moderator. I was once again found along the abandoned corridors of our high school building. I miss high school and all the good times that was.

I'm also currently using my iPhone as a camera since my Rolls (450D) with my everyday basic kit lens is in Boracay. Happy Birthday Sir Jasson!

H&M Eclectic Plaid.

When I Turned Eighteen.

I am so grateful to have received these three gifts during my birthday. 

1. Buttondown from H&M Austria. Thanks to my aunt who just arrived recently and is now staying in our home.
2. The Sartorialist Book. Thanks to my best friend for giving this to me. Whenever we would pass by National Book Store in Galleria, I would often stop, look at the window display, and tell him that I'll buy that book one day. Turns out this will be a birthday present from him! Thanks so much bro!
3. MacBook Pro. Last year, my mom told me that when I go to college, she'll buy me a MacBook. After getting a full scholarship in De La Salle - College of St. Benilde and graduating with honors, I jestingly hinted her about her promise. We asked my brother to buy this from Los Angeles and after a few weeks, it arrived in my bedroom.

My birthday party is a week from now and I can't wait for the surprises my friends will give me.

Clean Slate.

When we were young, we always like getting new things - may it be gifts, toys, clothes, or even a simple notebook that will be used come June. Things were good when we were young. We spend our Manila summers carefree. I waxed nostalgic about how I spent my summers back then. Strolling down Manila Bay, eating brunch by the shore, renting a bicycle, running barefoot, and ending the day with a cold buko (coconut) juice - these are some of things we used to do back in 1998. Things were good when we were young. Things were good when we were young. I can’t stop saying this line. Turning eighteen makes me reckon on what’s ahead but I am happy that as I grow older, the more I learn how to enjoy life.

I’ll be going to college in a month and I am very excited of what’s in store for me - new school, new teachers, new friends, new phase and a new blog. Cheers to a new beginning. I welcome you to BjornxManila blog.
