bruised and being in some kind of weird but happy mood

Wednesday, fresh from practice 
Saturday, bruise still visible and the rest of it has also come out like a map of tender pain
I'm the 90's mood tonight. Playing a long list of my favorite 90's alternative music.

Kendo was exhausting although we only had an hour of practice (the first hour was spent with demonstrations and a lecture). I have been feeling like I'm coming down with something but I'm doing my best to ignore it.

My glass paints arrived today and I can't wait to use them on the empty glass bottles I have been hoarding for the past month. (Do you know I sometimes pick my extra virgin olive oil based on how nice the bottle is for repurposing later on? heehee) But there's a bit of work to be done for a project with a rather tight schedule so the glass bottles and the glass paints will have to wait a while. *sniff*

I am in that lovely stage of not being in love because it lets me be in love with life itself. I like feeling the whole potential of so many things all at the same time. I am in one huge endless fairy tale where the witches are actually wise women and the princesses look out at me from their towers wishing they could run and jump as freely I could. I, with my rough feet and bruised knees and chore-callused hands, pass by white-horsed handsome princes without a second glance. Instead, I run across the fields of gold, and I throw myself nto the glittering sky.

What do stars do? (quoted from Stardust, movie adaptation of a graphic novel by Neil Gaiman)


  1. Out of curiosity - what's on your 90's alternative play list?

  2. It's a mix of songs, mostly the hits, from Blur, The Verve, Oasis, Smashing Pumpkins, Collective Soul, Stone Temple Pilot, Goo Goo Dolls, Dishwalla, Better Than Ezra, Gin Blossoms -- that sort :D

  3. Hi Mariwitch! I am a fan of the 90s too. Whenever I'm at work, I have a playlist of the 90s song. This helps me through the day without getting bored and a great deal of work done.

  4. I am hoarding bottles too since forever that my mom almost threw everything away last Christmas coz she thought they were junk! Can't wait to have some free time so I can start decorating my bottles too. ^_^

  5. Hi Febe! Thanks for dropping by! The 90s are my most "modern" favorite era of music :D After the 90s I like mostly old music already and very selected current music. :D

  6. Jen - kasi naman I can imagine gabundok na yung hoard mo! Hahaha!
