22 on the 27th: A Wish List

I have only six days to go before I can sing “I don’t know ’bout you but I’m feeling 22!”

Time is so fast! I remember thinking to myself when I was 10 that I want to turn 13 already because I get jealous of teenage girls who go around the mall without their parents. I would watch them from a far while I nod to whatever Mama andĀ AteĀ said. And suddenly, I was seventeen and didn’t want to turn 18 because that meant being an adult. Four years after, I still don’t see myself as one and am still scared of the real world.

I wanted to make a 22 things about myself like what Corinth and Jhanz did on their blogs but I will post that on the day of my birthday. So here we go first, 22 things I’d like to receive on the 27th. Divided them into four categories so it’s organized.

Time stand still

The obligatory camera selfie.

I finally found the time to write. Well, I do have time to spare, but no energy to do so.

I honestly thought blogging would be more fun and addicting now that I have a camera of my choice. I got a Canon 70D by the way. There’s a story behind it.

Mama and I are the usual mother-daughter when it comes to arguing. And I’ve been telling her I need a camera most especially because my course is media-related. That Sunday, she told me to go with her to the mall to meet up with my sister’s coworker from Singapore. She also told me that we would look at cameras. Being the person who doesn’t like getting disappointed by the simplest thing, I told her I’d rather stay at home than go there and walk away from the cameras. Mama decided to leave and went to the mall with my niece. A few hours after, my phone was ringing. Mother was calling and was asking what model I wanted because they were “just looking around.” I said I wanted the 60D. I put the phone downnd looked for Canon’s website and found out that there’s a new one in the market which takes after the 60D. Fast forward to me eventually going to the mall… She was on the phone talking to somebody and I was talking to the sales agent. He was holding the 70D and I told him I was okay with the 60D because it was cheaper but the former would be so much better. Mama just kept saying okay. And I asked her, “What do you really want me to get?” And she just said, “Is that what you want?” Of course, I chose the 70D. Later on, she found out that I opted to have the more expensive one. She thought I got the 60D but she was so hung up on the person on the other line. It’s her fault! (LOLJK I love you, Mama!)

On a serious note, I’ve been feeling unattached to the online world. I still check Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter but it gets tiring to post often. Being on the internet for almost 11 years is pretty, for the lack of a better word, tiring. Sometimes, I just feel like nobody will care. I honestly felt like deleting that chunk of a paragraph that I just wrote above. But word vomit is my intention so I won’t. I’ll leave you all with photos I took which, I believe, are beautiful.

Good night! <3
