To Jackson


You don’t know that I’m starting to write a lot about you, during late nights, at the back of my notes, through my weary pen.

When you came in, I never thought who you would be in me, until I started to see you in my mind, before I close my eyes and when I open them. I learned how to count the beautiful things, and it’s a real different feeling, you’re a different feeling I could wish would not stop.

I think I can’t be happier than this, as if mind is a merry-go-round spinning with thousand thoughts of you, as if my heart is a tantrum of voices wanting to speak what we can be.

I am certainly aware and terrified of the fact that sometimes I’m afraid with the idae of falling on love. I am the type of person who would choose to fence my heart if I could, who would rather hold tight of my own world.

Sometimes when I write, I don’t know how to give final words because I’m afraid about endings, it can be misery. I’m afraid that maybe one day, I wake up and I know that you’re happy with someone else, and I’ll be watching myself helplessly die. But I think, it doesn’t matter anymore. I’m not counting my wounds or my scars anymore. You taught me how to look at the whole universe to seek for possibilities and be a little something new.

Maybe heart’s fences shattered will never be real, we only make them for ourselves. It’s treacherous to fall in love and it’s more treacherous to always run away and try not to jump on it.

I will never stop falling in love with you, Jackson. I will never stop chasing hope.

July Updates


You guys probably know that i just entered my 12th grade in high school this year and it’s making me super busy in the moment, to the extent that I can’t anymore manage my social media accounts. Even this blog. And I am struggling to find posting schedule.

Currently, I’m in the process of doing numerous school stuffs and that is making my blog less active. 😦

So I then decided to make it easier for me. I’ll publish whenever I want and whenever I can. I’ll also not be making any ‘reposting things’ anymore.

Honestly, I do repost my blog posts because my engagement isn’t as high as what I got from my first blog so this website is a bit flop that it couldn’t be as successive as my first one. The repost thing is also a hustle activity and it adds up on my schedule so I better get rid of it and be contented of what I get. After all, likes and followers are just numbers and we better focus with the posts we make.

And aside from the fact that I’m now having lesser engagement, I also am not anymore able to read other people’s post and I can only blame myself for that. I feel sorry I can’t give back the appreciation I get from other bloggers. But guys, with or without me, your content are amazing. Note that. *winks*.

By the way, those days that I’m not around the blogosphere, I was also busy making writings. So sooner or later, I’ll start posting them here- again. I missed you all.

[i am making this simple. Ha-ha. forget the graphics for a while.]

°°° leave me any comments, please. I want to talk to y’all πŸ™‚

Verses for Paul


You gave me Sunflowers when my Roses are dying.

You showed me the whole universe when one of the Stars exploded.

You colored my pale walls.

You showed me the world.

You brought me to life.

And all that, I flew away from loss.

I chased the shade of happiness.


June Lovers


I kind of like to think,
About every hope which shrink.
Wishing on four leaves of clover,
Are we just star-crossed lovers?

Sometimes when I wake up,
Gloomy days don’t want to stop.
Daylight hide not to meet me,
I think I’m blind to see.

When I look at the stars it’s you,
No chance you stare at them too.
Wishing you also knew,
Words I said only a few.

I’m alone and terrified,
For the melancholy to abide.
The doors I opened close again,
Lock itself to keep the pain.

Wrecking how it feels,
Seeing you happy with someone else.
When I open an eye,
I helplessly watch my heart die.


Vacation is Over *aka* School Year Starts


Hello lovely people!

I am writing this because I want to let you all know I just started my 12th year in High School that means it’s my last and I really reaallly have to put just extra efforts ’cause I’m a graduating student, I need to make it to the top.

As of now, I can’t promise that I’ll be so active with the blog. Maybe, my posting schedule won’t be regular and consistent. But I’m sure tho that I’ll be still posting, it’s a promise I gave to myself that I won’t be shutting my website down for long time so even if my schedule being active won’t be regular, I’m still a hoarder. There’s nothing to worry about.
But there’s just this thing bothering me, I know that I have these nominations from other bloggers and it makes me sad that maybe I won’t be able to make posts for those awards. I’m sorry to fail you guys but I hope y’all understand πŸ˜”πŸ’”

So yes, it means that I’m welcoming myself into a busier life! πŸ˜› I wish this school year won’t be too difficult for me!

So recently, I just made myself more organised. Just so you guys know I bought two bullet journals, and I’m using the smaller one for personal things and the bigger one as my planner. Planner will help me get track of the things I have to make for my goals. Honestly, I’ve been using my phone for my to-dos but it’s something I don’t recommend. Lol because duhh, phones might break and die anytime, right? Right.

And also I got three new books πŸ“š :

πŸ“– Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon – I love this novel soooo much. I don’t want to spoil it tho, even if I already did on Twitter πŸ˜‚

This is just really cute, and if you want a book which can give you excitement in every page, I recommend it to you all 😍 For me, It’s better than Nicola’s new novel β€œ The sun is also a star ” . Well that’s just my opinion. Ha-ha.

The other two books I got :

πŸ“– Shiny Broken Pieces -a collab book (and my current read)

πŸ“– Attachments by Rainbow Rowell

So it’s just all that right now. I hope you guys are having great moments. Take care of yourselves especially your mental health. πŸ˜™πŸŒΊ

P. S. You can always reach me out on my Social media accounts (Instagram is advisable πŸ˜‚)

What grade are you in? Do you also use planners? What’s your current read?

How to Achieve Elegant Instagram Photos? + Tips to Maintain Color Palette


*Aside from capturing the main subject for your Instagram photos, knowing the best backgrounds and best ornaments to add is also important.

Hey y’all lovely peeps! So today I’ll be sharing some ideas on how to create and achieve elegant Instagram photos. Not only that, this post can help you the things to do to maintain the color palette of your IG feed.
Maintaining palette don’t just depend on the main subject, sometimes it can also be with the background and the small things you add to make it look more attractive.

Β° The Background

-the background can either improve the quality of a picture or ruin it. Make sure that your background compliment your main subject. Remember that the neater the background (not colorful), the elegant the photo will be. These are the things you can use to highlight your focus :

*Wall – for wall, it is best if the color is white or dirty white only, or something which is only light. Avoid using wall/s with dark paint.

*Bedsheet, piece of clothes, or curtain – similar with wall, it’s better to use type of bedsheet or piece of clothing which has light color/s.

*Skin – Skin can be used to. Honestly, there are some jewelry brands on gram which uses skin as background.

Backgrounds can also depend on the theme or filter you use on your photos. Just manage what best color of background suits your editing filter.

Β° Ornaments

-these are the small things which can give small details on photos. These can also give life to the main subject of the picture, just remember that your ornaments should be real smaller so that it won’t caught the focus. You can use the following :

*Miniatures – Miniatures are the best ornaments. They are crafty and cute and elegant to see.

*Fairy lights – fairy lights also add life to photos. Since it is like little lamps, it gives off color and brightness.

*Dried grass – Dried grasses would never be a bad Idea. Trust me, they’re looking cool and elegant on photos. Like nostalgic. 😍

*Flowers (artificial or real) Flowers are the fresh ornaments (however, artificial ones also work), this can cure dead photos since it is colorful but it’s certain, that flowers whether artificial or real won’t ruin the palette for as long as it don’t get the focus from the main subject.

Β° Other Ornaments includes :

* Bead / stones

* Ribbon / Laces

* Paper/ Binder clips

* Pens

* Highlighters

When you finally picked the colors you want on your IG pictures, make sure that your background and ornaments matches the palette because if not, your feed won’t succeed.

So that’s it y’all. I hope you picked new ideas for your Instagram again. πŸ™‚ So, start capturing now! 🌺🌺🌺

Which background do you think is best to use? What ornament do you prefer? Can you share your Instagram Color Palette?

Multiverse Consequence


I use to
believe
That we are
made for each other.
I use to
tell myself
that we are together
in other universe,
That we are not emptily alone
in other constellation.

No matter
how long I wait,
other universe won’t exist.
I only created
an imaginary place
for the two of us-
The wonderland of my insane mind.
I maybe am
under the shattered sky,
together with dying stars, with false hopes.

There’s only one
vague and twisted world.
Place where there’s no
You and I.
Broken paradise
is where we stand.
No meant-to-be,
No fate,
No eternity.
Ending is where it leads.


VSCO Tutorial + Instagram Tips and Tricks


* VSCO is one of the top-grossing applications used by instagrammers to achieve an elegant and well-maintained feed.

So today, we’re going to talk about VSCO and how to achieve your own beautiful Instagram feed using it. I’m going to share with y’all two recipes I created and I’m using for my photos.

Β° Shall we start?

– Having a good instagram feed is a struggle. It’s hard to maintain the same look on photos especially if you love capturing different things, but honestly it’s not. I’ve been also there, I’ve experienced posting and deleting my instagram posts because I get frustrated and envious with other users having gorgeous IG pages. But then I learned, and I found out that It’s not as easy as eating a piece- of -cake.

There are some hidden secrets on how to keep the physical appearance of your posts consistent. How? Here ‡

1. Choose a color palette for your photos.

-Color palette are the group of colors that exist in one photo. You should pick colors that you want to highlight on every pictures you take. Sticking to your palette can’t be done without effort, it’s somewhat needs your time and creativity. πŸ™‚

For palette ideas, you can search for it on Pinterest. I swear, you’ll see different results which will give you better hints.

Β° How to maintain a palette? Here’s how.

* Use ornaments on your photos.

Sometimes, you can’t achieve a beautiful feed if you only capture your subject alone. You need to use some aesthetics which will help to highlight colors that are on your palette choice. Ornaments can be just anywhere. Learn how to be resourceful and look around you.

* Use background/s of the same colors.

Background is an important thing when it comes to pictures. To achieve a uniform look on your IG photos, your backgrounds should never be colorful. Take note, the cleaner the background, the elegant your Feed will be.
