Ah April, we meet again.

02 April 2015

Is one's excitement for his/ her birthday inversely proportional to his/ her age? I'm turning 29 in a few days and unlike my previous birthdays (last year's How I Met Your Mother-themed party here!) I am not feeling up for a celebration. Maybe because 29 doesn't really sound like a milestone birthday like, say, 30? I don't know.


I'm spending the Holy Week holed up at home watching movies and resting and on Saturday, I'll pick up my birthday presents for myself. Yay, me! Sunday is exciting because I'll be attending the Komiket and get myself a copy of Kikomachine Komix Blg. 11 and hopefully have it signed by Manix Abrera himself. Check out Vlad's comics, too!

I realized I didn't want to stress myself with birthday plans anymore. If I come up with something for April 6 or if someone makes plans with me, great! If not, I'm good with staying at home, too. I signed up for Mina Esguerra's new online class, Spark NA, which will officially start on my birthday and I'm both anxious and excited to get my writing knuckles cracking again. In related news, the stories from our buqo YA class will be released very soon!

I don't get birthday blues because I prefer to collect birthday pinks, but birthdays always make me reassess my life and reevaluate my choices.

Clementine speaks my truth.

...you know? Taking advantage of every possibility? Just making sure that I'm not wasting one second of the little time I have.
Still, I know I shouldn't give in to these thoughts and just be.

I'm wishing you all an amazing April. Take care of your hearts. ♥

PS: I also have giveaways lined up so watch out for that!


  1. I also don't get excited about my birthday Krissy - ever since I turned 18! Haha :)

    I love staying at home too, watching movies and looking at old pictures. ;) Have an awesome April babe :)

  2. Haha thanks, Ruth! Likewise! <3
