School’s Out

Hey loves! After a long, excruciating semester of quizzes, homework, projects, and *insert more paper works here*, school’s finally out! I’ve heard and seen a lot of fun activities to spend the season but haven’t had the chance to experience most of them so while waiting for my summer class (waiting not to come, really), I’m making the most of my break. I hardly noticed that more than a week has passed and yeah, time really goes by so fast without you noticing it, especially when you’re having a great time. Some would probably feel bored just staying at home and having to stand seeing same familiar faces every single day. Not me, I guess. I am having so much fun. So here are some of the few things that have been keeping me enjoy the vacation lately:

  • Read – As of this moment I’m 13 books away from my goal this year, and I’m thinking of updating it once I reached 30 books. It will still depend on how busy I’ll get this coming semesters. Lately I’ve been reading a lot, from children’s books to new adult fiction. But of course I’m still enjoying my dystopian  sci-fi, contemporary romance and a whole lot of young adult fictions. The upper bunk bed serves as my little sanctuary, and seeing chocolate wrappers and whatever food you can name spread on the sheets is pure normalcy. Maybe this is a good kind of laziness I’m in. It’s better to stay on that little nook of mine than to go somewhere in this kind of heat. Plus the news of more of my favorite books will be made into movies just made me even more in a state of euphoria. The other day, John Green announced about the adaptation of Paper Towns and this morning, Rainbow Rowell tweeted about Eleanor and Park’s. I swear I could die that exact moment. There’s just this sense of fulfillment when you see your dearly adored characters came to life. But at the same time, it’s total suicide when the movie wouldn’t do the book justice.  Let’s just hope for the best. *crosses fingers* I’m just happy for my favorite authors they way their families are.
  • Asian romance/comedy marathon – If you’re following me on twitter, you’ll often see me talking about this Taiwanese series I can’t seem to get my mind off. I’ve been lacking sleep recently and rarely as it might get, I’m not even bothered. My sister’s and I’s vacation mostly consists of watching these series until two in the morning. We can afford six hours straight watching intently, like nothing is actually happening around us. Total oblivion. Being the overly cheesy earthlings that we are, we can’t help ourselves from smiling like morons and squealing most of the time. TWITTERPATED. Maybe you’re wondering what series I’m talking about, it’s Devil Beside You. If you wanna go back to your teen days and feel all these butterflies in your system once more, it’s a must-watch. I highly recommend it.
  • Wait – I know this one’s kind of vague, but my sister and I have been waiting for an update from the embassy so we can know if we’re still pushing this trip out of the country.
  • Paint – So my sister and I will be working on this popart portrait painting for my older sister and I’d definitely show it here once we’re done. Too bad I’d left all my painting materials in our old house. It would take some time before I get to visit that place again. All those books covers that I’d been doing last summer were also there. I wonder where I’d get to take my hands on them again.

So that’s pretty much how my vacation is going on. It may sound boring but for me, reading in bed is my kind of party. And I’m not even sorry. *winks* Also, I’m trying to write at least one post a day, no matter how pointless or random it might be. Until next time, reader!

Here’s to a vacation of no regrets! ― Joan Rylen

  1. Trip out of the country!?!?!? Where to?!

    You’re so much more ahead of me on the book challenge! 😦 I was doing well and then I got caught up in other things… worst part is, I recently misplaced my Kindle and reading books off my phone is so awkward and I was in the middle of a few books. I need to catch up!

    • My sister and I were in Japan for two weeks and we just arrived yesterday. 🙂 I’ll post photos soon!

      I have summer classes so I’m not sure when to continue reading. It sucks. Hope you find your Kindle soon. (Or maybe it’s a sign that you should invest more on physical books hehe)

      • Ah that’s amazing!!! I can’t wait to see photos 🙂

        I have two weeks off between my semester and summer semester. I’m trying to cram some books, but I also want to read “educational” books too. I am such a nerd. I LOVE PHYSICAL BOOKS JANE YOU KNOW THIS. I think when I move out of my parents house (hopefully sooner rather than later), I will have a huge library. But for now I barely have any storage for the hundreds of books I already have, and the school text books. :/

        Anyways, have fun. Good to hear from you as always! xoxo

      • Me too! I’m trying to cram some books while having my summer class. I’m a nerd, too! you know that hahaha. PHYSICAL BOOKS ROCK. And again, me too. I’m reviewing my past Accounting subjects too. And lastly, I can’t wait to move out of this house, be independent, and finally do whatever the hell I want. (I hope a few years from now, we’re stable enough to live on our own).

        God bless you, Jackie!! ❤
