The Epitome of a Chic

Hello to my readers! (that is, if I have any haha) I gotta admit that for 2 months I kind of neglected this blog because I was so uninspired and several things has happened to me.
From flunking, to shifting on my LAST sem, heartbreaks, and other life’s challenges, here I am standing still after all the let downs.

But I am so back! and I can’t wait to share all of the random stuff I prepared for this online diary that I have. I hope you guys keep posted.

I would like to apologize for the photos of my recent blog posts.
Something’s really wrong with wordpress. My pics are pixelated in posts even in their default dimensions.
I am trying to get this fixed as soon as possible.
Meanwhile, I am thankful that you’ve had time to visit my blog.
MWAH! :*

Day 3: Say goodbye to turning tables

Make them wonder why you’re still smiling.

Do not try to fit in. Stand out.

The best feeling in the world is realizing you’re perfectly happy without the things you thought you needed the most.


It’s not always about trying to fix something broken. It’s about starting over and creating something better.

After a while, you learn that you don’t need anyone else to survive.

No one is ever going to be there no matter what they promise you.

Suck it up and accept it. Life has been some combination of fairy-tale and joie de vivre.

There is a difference between giving up, and knowing when you have had enough.

Admit your flaws, accept them, embrace them. They make you human after all.

#1 rule to life: Do what makes you happy.

A Spectrum of Happiness

My blog title is so overused. Maybe because it’s so special to me. I had my first ever journalism award with it. 4th place, English feature writing.. that was like 6 years ago haha.

Anyway, it’s almost 1am but I would still like to update my blog even if this is just random. I’ve got nice tweet replies this week and my boyfrann suddenly surprises me with his txt messages.

The Lines Part Two?? haha part one was my second wordpress post, remember? 🙂

I just found out that he filters his fb sms notification only on my posts. So everytime I post a status, it goes directly to his phone 🙂
I got electricity all over my body 😀

So happy that after months naked, my BB finally got a descent protector 🙂 Now I’m saving for a lavender case and a purple rubber protector. It’s quite expensive.

I really have to hit the hay now. Tomorrow’s my cousins’ graduation. Congratulations to everyone at Cebu Doctor’s University who are also graduating tomorrow! You finally got out of the hell hole 🙂 Oh.. but not really! 😉

Buses and trains and cabs

I’d like to think that people have more than one soulmate.

And you know what,
if you miss one, along comes another one.
Like cabs.

I never thought that forever would end today. But it did 😦
I’m just glad that I could blog under my sheets using my phone because I don’t know how else I’m gonna remove all these thoughts. Don’t worry, NO morbid ones.
I just felt my heart drop to my feet. It’s amazing how the freaking Friday song dint make me laugh tonight but at least I have my cousins who don’† even make an effort to make me roll on the floor with laughter.

Finals tomorrow. I need to hit the sack now. After all,
If you want the rainbow, you’ve got to put up with the rain.

Quickest post: My list of Thank Yous!

I’d like to thank these people who have been keeping track of my blog and for commending me about it 🙂

Thank you Cesi Llanos for the blog feature and for the kind words! :*
(click on her name or look fir it in my blog roll to check her blog).

I was really surprised when I received this tweet.

This is what she wrote about me:

“3. – Nica and I met online way back 2008 (I guess), when Friendster ruled the cyberspace. We have common friends and we came from the same hometown but we never really met each other in person. I learned about her newest blog in twitter. When I saw her blog’s URL, I was like “WordPress?”. Honestly, I just learned of today (Don’t judge me, please). I had 6 blogs before this one – 1 Friendster, 1 Multiply, 3 Blogspot and 1Tumblr blog. Only one survived out of the six, HAHA. Thank you Nica for introducing me to WordPress! Imma try my luck with wordpress now (FYI, I am seriously having a hard with wordpress, tsk).”

And France Dacumos for the double tag on twitter and facebook 🙂

People like you inspire me to do better and to keep going.
Smooches!! :*

I’m old enough to know better, but too young to care

This will be quick 😉

I would love to tell you everything about this boy… But then you would fall in love with him too.

Okay, if I’m really honest, this, all of this, is just one long love letter that I’m writing to you.
Cinderella walked on broken glass. Sleeping Beauty let a whole lifetime pass. Belle fell in love with a hideous beast. Jasmine married a common thief. Ariel walked on land for love and life. Snow White barely escaped a knife. It was all about blood, sweat, and tears, because love, means facing your biggest fears..

Or maybe the happy ending is this, knowing after all the unreturned phone calls, broken-hearts, through the blunders and misread signals, through all the pain and embarrassment, you never gave up hope.

Fast Facts and love 101 because I’ve been watching the No Strings Attached trailer for the nth time.

We Walk On Air

Viola! After three years of thinking about keeping a REAL blog, here I am doing my first post for my lifetime commitment  😉

I just came home from my second to the last day of duty for this semester (HOORAY!) and for some reason after shower, the first address I typed was My friend Myka, who is a very good writer and a certified blogger inspired me to finally take a notch higher and move here. I started blogging since highschool. Being a feature writer and a bookworm, i just needed a place where my thoughts could rest. But believe me, and should really rest in peace now.

I have Tumblr by the way which is my messy and disorganized blog (but still keeping me awake) and now I’m glad that I won’t be spamming twitter that much because I am welcoming myself back to the non-stop ranting community! 🙂

I live in two worlds. One is a world of books. I am a free bird.
“I’m partly somebody else trying to fit in and say the right things and do the right thing and be in the right place and wear what everybody else is wearing. Sometimes I think we’re all trying to be shadows of each other, trying to buy the same records and everything even if we don’t like them.”
—Go Alice

Being a person, I had come to realize, is a communal activity.
“Dogs know how to be dogs. But people do not know how to be people unless and until they learn from other people.”
—John Green (Zombicorns)

Sugarcoatedscribbles will be about random stuff:

  • my rants, wants and cants
  • songs I listen when words fail
  • books
  • fashion
  • movies
  • food
  • EVERYTHING. Hey, this is a blog right? 😉

So before saying goodmornight, I’m gonna leave you guys with my mom’s constant reminder. This is by James J. Kilpatrick:

Five common traits of good writers:
(1) They have something to say.
(2) They read widely and have done so since childhood.
(3) They possess what Isaac Asimov calls a ‘capacity for clear thought,’ able to go from point to point in an orderly sequence, an A to Z approach.
(4) They’re geniuses at putting their emotions into words.
(5) They possess an insatiable curiosity, constantly asking Why and How.

Tata For Now. I wouldn’t want to miss the LAST day of duty so I’m resting my peepers before the sun creeps out.
