What is Love?

This Valentine season it is interesting to talk about love, isn’t it? I am a hopeless romantic person and I should blame it to the romance novels and movies that I’ve read and seen in the past. Many of my friends are already planning their Valentine dates and gifts for their loved one. So I bet you’re also in this state right now. I cannot offer you creative and unique ideas for your Valentine dates, but maybe I can help you get inspired in doing it.

Allow me to share you some of my favorite quotable quotes from some of my favorite romantic movies:

A walk to remember

 

The Vow

Love Actually

Titanic

Dirty Dancing 

 

 

50 First Dates

The Notebook

PS I Love You

 

 

Let’s Spread Happiness

Some people find it hard to become happy with their life. Maybe because they are in a difficult situation wherein happiness is not an option. But for me, I don’t believe in such. Happiness is for me and it should be an option. It should be a decision. You will become a happy person if you choose to become joyful.

There are so many reasons to become an energetic, purpose-driven, and enthusiastic person. No matter what problem that comes your way you should not entertain any kind of sadness or stress in your mind. Happiness starts in the person’s mind. If your mind is full of negative thoughts, you got blinded by it.

Here are some ways that you can do to keep being happy and having a joyful heart:

 

Audrey Hepburn already said it be with people who makes you laugh.

 

Keep smiling. It is free.

 

 

Appreciate simple pleasures.Happy people take the time to appreciate these easy-to-come-by pleasures.

Optimism develops happiness.

Laughter is the best and cheaper than medicine.

Happiness is a way of travel.

 

It is for you!

From Book To Film

I am fond of books and movies. I read a lot and I watch plenty of films as well. In the last couple of years, there are plenty of movies that were produced which are based from best-selling novels. Since I am too lazy to write a book or movie review these past few days and weeks (hehe), I decided to just make a list of my favorite book to movie adaptations.

So here’s what I’ve got:

 

Things I look forward to in 2014

Another year has come and I am really excited for it. New year, new adventure, and new me. There are many things that I am thankful for last year. And I am hoping that in 2014 there’s a lot more to be grateful for.

Here are the things that I really look forward this year:

* New Job

* More Travels

* More Writing

* More time to read

* Learn something new

Reading List for 2014

A couple of weeks from now, another year will come. I am sure that “goodbye 2013 and hello 2014″ will become trending in various social networking sites as the new year comes. So before the year ends, I want to create a new book list that I want to read for next year.  Yay! I am anticipating to receive more books this Christmas season and I hope that my family and friends will give me books that are included in my reading list for 2014.

Writer’s Struggle

Every writer has their own struggles. Some of us might not know but there are so many challenges that every writer has to surpass before they can able to write something worthy to read. What are those? Find it here.

 

Putting what’s on your mind down on paper.

And lastly, beating the writer’s block.

Christmas Wishlist

It’s December and that it only means one thing. Christmas is here!!! I am very excited every time this season starts. Aside from expecting so many parties, food, and house decorations, what I want most about Christmas is gifts. (hehe, so childish). I grew up in a household where I experienced great Christmas times. It is where my family and relatives get together, have a great time eating, chatting, and exchanging gifts. I always prepare a wishlist for every Christmas and for this year, here’s what I’ve got. I hope Santa will read this. :)

 

 

 

Booookkkkssss! new set of good books to my shelves. I am a booklover and reading is one of my favorite hobbies.

New gadgets. I am not a techie person but hello?! to be in a digital world means you must have the latest techs. (heh)

 

I am a shopper and I love to shop just like other girls. New clothes, shoes, bags, cosmetics — I want all of this. :)
