diamond in the rough

The heat has been unbearable in our side of the world!!! Showing a bit of skin is more of survival than anything else, really. Still, even 35 degrees Celcius won't bring me down and make me hate summer. I'm especially looking forward to my annual beach trip with friends this coming May! Ah, to be back in the sea again.

Things have been quite nice lately. Not perfect, but good.

My boyfriend just graduated from college (BS Architecture from the University of the Philippines! Proud girlfriend right here!), and we've been spending loads of time together, since he's a free bird at the moment. We're also trying to be healthier, so we've been doing routine jogging every other night! Our minimum goal is to at least gain back our 2010 body. Yay for couple fitness!

I'm having a blast at school. It's fast-paced, but I'm learning so much! I've never been this motivated and inspired to work so hard, and the people I've met along the way have been a big force behind that push. The people are the best part of all this. Oh, and I got a summer job, too! The plan is to use my pay check for an Xbox + Kinect!

I almost want to say I'm pretty content right now, but I still dream and wish of so many things every single day. Only natural for humans to want, but I am slowly getting to that happy and peaceful place. And when I do get there, you'll be one of the first to know. For now, I'll enjoy this exciting ride. :)
