I'm Yours

I love you, Jason Mraz ^^,

I am so corny, I know. Can you blame me? He's my most favourite person in the universe. The world is a much better place with him around. And I'm not just saying that because I'm a fan. He does a lot of good wherever he goes. He has a foundation, supports a number of causes, and participates in projects for people empowerment and environment preservation. And the music he writes -- they speak of love and kindness and optimism and peace. Music with substance and meaning.

I'm still on a high from 2 nights ago. This was my second Jason Mraz concert, and I don't think I'll ever get tired of watching him perform. He was amazing. His voice, his singing, his charisma, his creativity, his energy! It was infectious! At the concert, I was like a kid in a candy store. I pointed at every little detail I noticed, bouncing in my seat, all giddy with excitement! I was just so happy. Everything he sang sounded even better on stage than in my Spotify. Even Back to the Earth sounded awesome enough to be a favourite! And I'm sorry, but I really hated that song. Raining Jane complemented him well, I think. They were just as awesome.

It was just funny because the people seated around us didn't seem to enjoy the concert quite as much. For some reason, most of the people in our section were old. And I do mean white-hair-with-grandkids kind of old. Some were probably forty-something couples. Anyway, it was generally an older crowd. And well, they were just there. Watching. And I couldn't comprehend how you can go to a Jason Mraz concert and just watch. You scream, you sing, you clap along, you laugh, you take videos, you jump around, and whatever, but you definitely do not just sit there and watch! Okay, so they're an older crowd. Still. The couple beside me was staring at their phones the whole time. And they weren't even texting, they were on Facebook!

If anything, I just wish that we sat somewhere else. By the time I found out Jason Mraz was having a show here, the good seats were gone. It was an awesome show nonetheless. Awesome, awesome! Trust Jason Mraz to deliver the very best!

The concert was a birthday present, by the way. And I couldn't have asked for anything better.

Busy Bee

Writing on my blog has been on my to-do list since forever. I just never really got a round to it. Funny, because now that I have all the time in the world to my favourite things, it sometimes feels like I don't have any time at all.

I moved back to Manila last July to take classes on web design and graphic design. Classes were 3 hours long (or short, I should say), 5 days a week. I purposely did not look for a part-time job because I wanted to use all my extra time in building my portfolio. Which I really did. And now that I'm finished with 1 class, I only have to go to school twice a week.

I've got all this time now that I've been wishing for ever since I decided I wanted to be a graphic artist. But! The more time I have, the more stuff I want to do. I'm always jumping from one thing to another, doing more than 2 things at the same time, which we all know is not effective. I want to draw figures, start the (22) classes I saved at Skillshare, do calligraphy, create clip art, design my own website, practice hand-lettering, and etc, etc, etc. And on top of that I have all my personal stuff that I want to do that I have absolutely ignored since I got here, like my diet, work-out, and my chanting.

That's just me I guess. Forever busy.
