If love enters…

If love enters between two worlds, change comes in. Change always comes. It will either have both people change gradually or briskly just to make both worlds compatible. This is like how Bella became a vampire, how people change their religion, how they switch into a different lifestyle, or how they left their social status.

Change happens all the time.

I talked to my mom when I was having my breakfast. My mind was active that morning and also it’s the perfect time for me to have a conversation with her. I opened up about the guy I like. She remembered him and repeated the story I told her before. Yeah. I told her that I have shared this guy to my trusted friend. Then, here’s my friend who gave me a “Not him” answer because he didn’t pass the qualification. Let’s say that “this” qualification is the number one thing I need for the future.

So, what now? Continue reading “If love enters…”

My first night at Ludo

I didn’t expect to go here. My friends and I actually planned to go in a burger restaurant but we passed by at Ludo as we went to Sweet Ecstasy. It was drizzling  but the evening weather was hot. We walked at the very end of the street were the burger restaurant is located. The place was full packed. It was drizzling and our clothes were moist. There were no available seats. We stayed for 5 minutes outside the restaurant and thought of plan B.

LUDO. It was the only option. Actually there are lots of option but one of my friends is fond of board games so she markets this game bar. She won. Ayaw na rin namin mag-isip ng matagal at pumunta sa malayo dahil gabi na at sayang ang oras. The cafe is one block away from Sweet Ecstasy.  Continue reading “My first night at Ludo”

5 Sense of Clarence

japan

Sense. I really put Sense not senses because of some OCD-ish reason.

Anyway, my friend and I talked about blogging. She’s actually a Tumblr blogger. One time, she had mentioned her ideas about blogging her week like for Monday, she’ll blog about food, on Tuesday about music and so on. She actually had a great idea. She gave me an idea on what I will post on my blog because I am not a creative blogger. The only problem was it was kinda tiring but I still wanted to do it.

So, I brainstorm until the end of my thinking capacity on how to put five topics in one post without ruining my other tags or categories.

Thank God, after 30 minutes, here it is – my 5 Sense. Continue reading “5 Sense of Clarence”

When Clarence met Clarence

I used to hate it  when I met someone who has the same spelling of my name. I didn’t show how much I dislike it  but there are always and always these times that I became close with them.

My name is supposed to be Trixy or Trixie or whatever the spelling is as long as it sounds like Pixie. However, I really thank the author who made the science book that my mom read when she was carrying me in her womb. She read it and saw the name Clarence.

I like it. It doesn’t sound feminine and masculine for me. And with so much curiosity, I googled it and basically looked for a scientist named Clarence. I found one on Wikipedia. He is Clarence Ellis, a computer scientist. I don’t think he is the same scientist as who my mom saw because his face is kinda modern and of course he is a computer scientist and computer is an advance device, so maybe he is not the one. However, while I was writing this – on the other hand, I was searching for other old scientist. There I found an old portrait of a medical scientist named Clarence John Blake. It’s pretty cool that I hardly find information about him.

Just like him, living with this name is bit hard ’cause I can’t find any personalize item with my name on it though it’s no big deal. I think it is a relief for me when I find someone who has the name as mine.

Answered prayer but I didn’t pray for it. Continue reading “When Clarence met Clarence”

Visiting the National Museum for FREE!

IMG_20160312_163113

Hello there!

It is a great opportunity for me (and for my mom) to visit the National Museum. I always want to see what’s inside this building. My curiosity always activates whenever I pass by at this building when I go to the mall. But I guess, this is a perfect month for me to have a tour in this museum – for FREEEEE!

Why is it free? Are you sure? How? Continue reading “Visiting the National Museum for FREE!”

New Year: St•art x Graphika Manila

IMG_20160101_001155

It has been a while. New year is a new life and I started making my new year’s resolution. It’s really funny that I decided to start eating healthy foods. I’ll eat less junk food or fast food but rather eat healthy food or I can say home made food.

I even wanted to improve my creativity. Since I do lettering, I try to improve my style and learn more techniques.

Bo’s Coffee St•art Journal

Red notebook and pens are not included in the journal

The owner of the coffee shop wants to enhance people’s creativity so he made this creative journal. It has lots of activities inside which challenge one’s creativity.

I like this journal because it has great information inside which helps you understand and learn more about art – painting, lettering, photography, and name few.

Graphika Manila

Graphika Manila 2016 Ticket

The highlight of my year so far.

How great it is that Graphika Manila starts the year with a great event. They had held an event last January 30-31 with awesome speakers starting from Valerie Chua, Velvet Spectrum, Si Scott, Tosh Kadama of Imaginary Forces, Vault 49, and Timothy Goodman on the first day. Then, Patrick Cabral, Matthew Encina of Blind, Gemma O’Brien, Benjamin Su of Pixar, Sigmon Legno Tokidoki and Harvey Tolibao on the second day of the event.

The speakers’ portfolios are really good. They all have different styles of designing; their way speaking are funny as well.

Meet and greet after the event

For those who haven’t gone to the event, here are some points that I had from some speakers:

  • It all starts with “I don’t know” – you might not know your career but if you focus on one thing, you’ll know your path. Your passion will lead you.
  • Put stories on your work – as an artists, it is relevant if there are stories behind your artwork. Make it a meaningful artwork.
  • Reflect. Find your inspiration – most artists on the event reflects with nature. It makes them relax and think of better ideas. Also, they always put their families on their work.
  • Take a risk and get ready for the heartbreak – being an artist doesn’t always mean that you make designs on an instant. Ideas are hard to attain. You make great works but it’s not accepted at some time. These factors leads you growing so don’t stop trying. Artist become great by not giving up.
  • Make your designs authentic – references are not bad but it is better if you learn to have your own style. You can practice using some references but don’t own that work. Make your artworks be you. Lastly,
  • Stay healthy – designing is fun. You are so passionate with what you do that makes you stay awake until dawn but don’t forget your health. Learn to eat good food or exercise or have enough sleep.

The event was an awakening for the sleeping artist. It was even a great opportunity to improve one’s artistic side.

It was my first time attending Graphika Manila event and I guess I’ll be attending again.

How about you? What is the highlight of your year so far? Let me know. I’ll try to try it too.
