The year is about to close and for some reason, I feel like I’m at my weakest this month. Many things happened… Well, more of like a lot of things didn’t happen as planned. As much as I want to stay cheerful, I have to admit that I was overwhelmed easily (for good and bad reasons) this 2017.
Still, I’m trying to live up to the quote I’ve set for myself to follow this year:
Staying positive doesn’t necessarily mean being happy all the time. It just means that even when you’re feeling low, you know that it will end, and that there are better days on the other side. — HappierSuggestion
I’m starting to look for a quote to follow next year. If not, I’ll probably still follow the same. You might find it weird, but I keep myself sane when I have some sort of reminder. ww
It’s no surprise. If you (or someone you know) have ordered an item overseas, your initial worry would be the Bureau of Customs — which is btw the worst and most corrupt agency in the PH. They charge absurd taxes to the point that you’ll either not claim the package at all or waste time and effort to get an explanation of the questionable fees, but still end up paying since you badly need the item(s).
Seriously, who would want to pay taxes that are half or even higher than the price of what they bought? Nobody, right? Who in their right mind would say “yes” to that.
October was nice. It started well with CosMania Day 2, then the following weekends were days of meeting with friends and relatives. I was a little down (post-event blues perhaps?), but I finally recovered lol.
September was crazy. Attending two events in the same month means two performances. Moreover, there are many birthday celebrants this month—me, my mom, my friends, and my favorite anime characters, but let’s not talk about that here lol.
All my weekends were booked, and idk if that was a good or a bad thing. Probably the former. ww
Cosplay Mania has always been an event I look forward to every October, though this year it started on the last day of September lol. This 2017 marks our 4th stage with Hall EX, and I’m truly grateful that they’re still giving us a slot. This is the only convention that I’m willing to attend both days even if it’s tiring.
