GASP COULD IT BE? IS INA /ACTUALLY/ POSTING A MONTHLY VLOG RECAP /ON TIME/???!!!!?!?!? YES, IT'S TRUE!!!
Okay capslock, exclamation points, and question marks aside, it's the first of September which obviously means August has ended which means hello time to post a vlog of last month!
• Renz's birthday party! (0:00 - 0:41) (See this post.)
• The Forever 21 Music Fest. (See this post.) Please notice the crowd from 0:41 - 1:05 and then 1:05 - 1:14 because LOL WHATTA DIFFERENCE RIGHT? Thysz and I were like, "Isn't this a music fest? WHY ISN'T ANYONE DANCING?!"
• Visiting Alex's newly renovated house! (1:58 - 3:34) HER HOUSE MAN. HER HOUSE. IS. DA. BOMB. I pretty much made a mini-tour of her house in the aforementioned time bracket, so please go see the beauty that is the Cruz household.
• Helping out Luisa with her finals. (3:35 - 3:50) It was my first time getting to work with Luisa ever, though we've been online friends for quite some time now. Good luck with exams bb!
I will also take this opportunity to blog about bullet point number five a.k.a. the visit to Alex's house. I promise I have her full permission to blog about this on her behalf HAHA.
But first, a photo of Creampuff, the calmer one of the two Lontoc canines. I hitched a ride with Tintin the day we made the visit to Alex's house, hence the picture.
If you've never been to Alex's house pre-renovation, lemme tell you bro, it looks NOTHING like this anymore. I could not stop fussing. I was all, "ALEX, WHERE ARE YOUR PARENTS? I /NEED/ TO CONGRATULATE THEM FACE-TO-FACE OHMYGOD I- JDFHSDJG"
And oh man, do you know how happy I was when I found out that Alex and her sibs finally have their own respective rooms? I KNOW HOW THAT FEELS MAN. I didn't get to see Pao's room, but Alex's and Gabbie's are SO nice! Gabbie's bed is boss, folks.
Go away Muffin.
LOVED the second floor. Because the table. Also because BEAUTIFUL LIGHTING UP THERE CAN I JUST??? Envy pls.
Hi Janelle! We mostly hung out in the kitchen (which looks just as swanky, can I just say), stuffing our mouths with food and feels.
Janelle and Ashley have a history.
And then it was time to go, so we took some group photos to commemorate the day.
Jam's shirt says "PUG LIFE" by the way. Talk about boss.
Tintin said we should do the "Ina face" for this shot, which apparently meant the grit-your-teeth face, but then Janelle, FOR SOME REASON LIKE I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHY, burst into a fit of giggles at the last second. So this is what happened. I. Why.
Anyway, on another, more somber note, August was kinda loopy. It was a roller coaster. I can recount two specific days that involved me crying really bad; the first made me feel like a horrible person and the second time involved SO MANY FEELS LIKE YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW and it caused my mom to even call me up all the way from Hong Kong HAHAHA oh mother, thank you for worrying.
But I think those two events were necessary, especially at this point in my life. They were such good learning experiences. I'm still recovering from the second life happening but I think it was bound to happen sooner or later anyway, and I guess God found that sooner would be better than later for me in this situation.
I hate being vague about these two things (I a b s o l u t e l y HATE vague blog posts or parinig posts UGH SO IRRITATING PET PEEVE PLS), but I bothered blogging about them anyway because they were changes that were so important in my life. So important that they needed to be chronicled in my blog, but even I can only share so much of my ~*~personal life~*~ on the net as well.
I mean, I guess you could say I've always been kind of public about my life in terms of blogging, but I actually DO choose what I want to share and what I don't. I obviously don't post things that I know are too personal for me. Whatever it is I post on the net, they are things I know I have no problem sharing with strangers. I wouldn't post things like... things that are like... blackmail material? Or things that can be used against me in the wrongest of ways? I was a victim of cyber-bullying once and it was really, really intense, so I know what and what not to post, at least for myself.
LONG EXPLANATION OF A VAGUE MENTION ABOUT SOME DRAMU IN MY RAIFU ASIDE, HAPPY FIRST OF SEPTEMBER EVERYONE! I have been oddly excited for Christmas since late July, lemme just get that out there.
