8TEEN (a thank you note)

Hello, your 4'11 girl is finally legal! (And still below the 5 foot height.)

I turned 18 approximately two weeks ago and fun fact: I think birthdays are like new years for a human person - and the new year as in January 1 is earth's birthday (But like mother earth is waaaay older than 2016 but yeah, still.)

So, I had my little Samantha's new year exactly a week ago, June 3rd. But my celebration started a day earlier. Actually, once it hits June 1st, it's already my birthday, whether you like it or not. June 3 is just the official, official thing. The whole month of June is my birthday.

(This is how passionate I am when it comes to my birthday.)

Warning: Kinda photo overload

June (READ ME)

WATCHING ... sadly, nothing as of now. But I did watch a few films from the French Film Festival which happened last week and ends today!

LISTENING to Where My Love Goes by Lawson. It's such a sweet song and I manage to tear up from time to time when I listen to it. I tear up most when the song suddenly comes on the radio and catches me off guard.

WEARING my school uniform. Lol, back to school aka medyo hell. Medyo, because I'm actually interested in learning. Kind of. I just wish I could do it in bed, under my blanket???

THINKING about sem break... already.

EATING not really eating... more like drinking. Caramel Latte. Who knew I'd actually get into coffee??

ENJOYING the spoils of my birthday!! Hehe. Thank you for the birthday money, titos and titas! I'm also enjoying the wi-fi here at Krispy Kreme.

FEELING really sad because I had to reformat my laptop back to Windows 8. Apparently, my laptop cannot handle Windows 10 which gives me trouble in editing videos in Sony Vegas. So, I lost most of my files and programs. It's really sad. I was supposed to upload a birthday video last week but sadly, laptop problems. I also lost one to three important videos that was supposed to be part of my vlog. I spent a night crying about it. Because BIRTHDAY.

WRITING this blog post and a Thank You note blog post and my photography homework.


BOOK REVIEW: The Crown by Keira Cass

When Eadlyn became the first princess of Illéa to hold her own Selection, she didn’t think she would fall in love with any of her thirty-five suitors. She spent the first few weeks of the competition counting down the days until she could send them all home. But as events at the palace force Eadlyn even further into the spotlight, she realizes that she might not be content remaining alone.

Eadlyn still isn’t sure she’ll find the fairytale ending her parents did twenty years ago. But sometimes the heart has a way of surprising you…and soon Eadlyn must make a choice that feels more impossible—and more important—than she ever imagined.

The amazing last book of the Selection series...? Nope. No regrets. I just didn't feel this one, just like how I felt with The One. Similar to the supposedly ending to this series, The Crown felt rushed. I guess Kiera had to wrap things up eventually. I'm just disappointed with the whole turn out of this one. 

Maybe I expected too much from the final book? Or maybe it wasn't well written like I think?

MAJOR MAJOR SPOILERS: (Read at your own risk!!!)
