I’m Back + Color Manila Run 2k16

I know, I know.

It’s been almost a month (or even longer, I think) since I’ve last updated BUT I do have very good reasons for why I’ve not been as active! First of all, school. I’ve been juggling my school work, org work, and other duties altogether. Second, I’m preparing for something amazing that’s happening next month (which I will reveal very soon)! Lastly, finals week (for me, at least) is coming up and I’ve been incredibly busy.

The reason why I decided to post now, though? I’ve missed writing for myself — and actually just finished watching a movie with one of my best friends, Nicole; it’s called Stuck in Love and it was released 2012. It’s easily one of my new favorite movies because the protagonists are writers so it pretty much inspired me to take a break and write again!

Before I start talking about the second part of the blog, which you can already tell from the title (hint: Color Manila Run), I would just like to share my recap from February!

I decided to start doing this monthly for reflection and for me to practice on my lettering! 🙂

Anywho, on to the second part of the blog post – Color Manila Run!

Earlier this month, on the 6th of March, my best friend Courtney and I went to Color Manila Run for the first time! Imagine this: colored powder, awesome music, running / walking, obstacle courses, and lots of laughs!

So this is Courtney (right) and I (left) at the finish line!

The night before, she slept over at my house (but we didn’t sleep oops) where we caught up and played loads of board games and card games (she studies in a different university). We left my house at 3 in the morning (!!) to make it to Mall of Asia by 4 in the morning, which was the call time. What surprised us was that there were so many people already at wee hours in the morning (also that from my house in Valenzuela City to Pasay City – it took around 30 to 40 minutes only)! While waiting for the fun run to start, we went around the booths and hoarded on free samples and freebies (most of them were sun screen, which I was happy about since two of my favorite brands – Daylong and Biorè were there)!
