    November: And never, ever think of counting sheep.

    Me, wide awake alone with my hyper active mind—so thanks Frank Sinatra for this very apt title for my very unlucky situation recently. *coughs* And just like that we say adieu to November,  and in a month 2018 is gonna wave goodbye too! I chuckled at the irony of tweets lamenting the year being way too long. I both agree and disagree. It felt longer with all the happenings but at the same time fast ‘cos here we are, end—

    October: when the working day is done; girls, they wanna have fun!

    How is it that it’s November already?! Every time the news tells us the number of days before Christmas, I’m still surprised how quickly it’s approaching. But let’s stop talking about the upcoming holiday season and focus on the month that was October. So October to sum up was pretty eventful!! *wipes sweat* The month started with what supposed to be my day off turned unproductive day stuck in bed sick. Ugh! Then some banking mishaps, birthdays, and all the—

    September: Let’s turn nouns into verbs, to verbs~!

    9月のライオン ~!!September came like a Lion! (did you get the reference? OK, I should’ve used it on March but it’s not too late…maybe next year?? ) I digress, as a whole, the month was pretty good. Yep, it went well. It so hard to describe the month that kinda went by too quickly. But don’t get me wrong I love me some chill month. Excitement once in blue moon, yep, but I love peaceful & ordinary days.  (Also shoutout to—

    August: the chill vibes, the rainy season, & lotsa of hot chocolate drink!

    Sure time flies so fast! I’m writing my August wrap-up and that means the “ber” months are already here. But before I go and get nervous about how the end of the year is fast approaching, let me share what has happened this month which is a big thingy in my family…wait, I’m not allowed yet to share…so maybe next time. But the month was pretty calm and relaxing month overall. Calm in a way that I gotten lazy and—

    July: ‘Cos I can’t come up with a witty line, so here’s a wrap-up!!

    So July be like some rain, more than normal rain, then there’s so much rain it’s flooding everywhere. It feels like it was just raining the entire month (I think it did) and while I do like the cold weather, it feels so icky wet… I miss the sunshine! (OK, my fave weather is cloudy…not too hot but it’s not raining) But enough of me talking about the weather and go to main point of my monthly wrap-up…so July?! Better—

    June: what did I say to taking chances? I said yes!!

    So June? June is pretty hectic, tiring, and few but major changes (more like straightening out my *beep*). But you know me, I’d rather put the details under a wrap (here’s to my failed pun!!) Well, June is almost over and I’m still thinking how the heck that happened so quickly (like always). Now with July coming in it means half a year is officially over and that always mind blowing! I swear the “ber” months is fast approaching &—

    May proved that I’ve still got some fight left in me!!

    Oh dear, it’s the end of the month again! It’s absolutely mind blowing, still, how epically days just go by without the care in the world! I think my May started pretty OK for the most parts! I know last month I said that I hope I can yell to the void that I finally got my sh*t sorted…well, not yet, but there’s a progress! (LSS of the month, Fight Song by Rachel Platten! I needed the push!) To be—

    April, oh dear April! I might’ve disappointed you!

    We have officially entered the second quarter of the year & it feels surreal! I read a tweet before how people moaned about January being long and dragging but here we are almost mid-year! I can’t believe it, seriously! What’s the hurry though? Can we all chill down for a bit? Anyway, April was pretty nice and productive in some ways. What I promised myself to do though, well, I didn’t do it again because I’m such a procrastinator. But—

    March: Is it cool that I said all that?

    Today’s Maundy Thursday so to those who observe it, it’s time to reflect what Jesus Christ did and the precious gift He gave us. And to those who don’t, well, I hope you’re having a wonderful day! I can’t believe April is just around the corner and I’m done writing my March wrap-up post!!  March came in then almost over in a blink of an eye ‘cos maybe I was too excited for things to come when the month started,—

    February be like: ’cause I’m hot then I’m cold??!!

    There were certain days that I felt so meh…or worst crying like it was nobody’s business (is being sentimental comes with age or just me being a little under the weather—or simply because of the misunderstanding between mom and me…like always) But February ain’t bad. February is alright! I think there were awesome moments, still, but that one particular day lingered on me more than necessarily (I hate how the black dot overwhelms me rather than wide white clean canvas—here—

    January went out here & it was drippin’ in finesse

    Expect some lyrics (my LSS to be exact) gracing my monthly wrap-up headlines so how was January?? Very, very busy! I think when officially January came I was always on the run doing lots of errands, doing commission work…my translations work is piling as well and I haven’t had a good blogging routine set up for the month (although I don’t dare say I’m failing because I’m just one post less than my original sched! And that’s awesome despite my—

    November got me feelin’ like ooh-ooh-ooh~ ♫

    It’s funny how early I started writing my wrap-up. I mean, compare to the many years of cramming and then some totally forgetting important stuff (almost always due to procrastination and disorganization; looks like I’ve finally seen better days~). *coughs* Diving into the main point, November is pretty OK-ish month with good (awesome I say) and some others that totally frustrated me (はあぁぁ~ あいつはそれをしなかった)  Anyways, it was still pretty solid month for me. Entering the last month of year is—

    October: When life gives you lemons, make some lemonade!

    Ah, I feel like wrapping up October already (fyi: wrote this three days before I scheduled it), although I dread the incoming month, also! Let’s just say that sometimes I get tired at picking up all the lemons on my way—it isn’t thrown at me per se but, yeah. Lemons there, lemons here, everywhere lemons! Life is tough! But I know God is there with me, like what in 1 Peter 5:7 says “Cast all your anxiety on him because—

    September: I feel so much younger now!

    Somewhat busy and pretty nice September has happened. It is a vast improvement from August (although last month was pretty OK too regardless). But I can’t believe that TV shows are doing Christmas countdown + on our way back from church last Sunday I saw a house already has their Christmas lights lit! Holidays are just around the corner people! Seriously, why are days flying so, so fast. I can barely keep up with the fast freaking pace that is—

    August: Look what life made me do!

    Yes, a nod to Taylor’s new song. Evidently I still like her despite the ‘old Taylor’ being dead. But I hope her album isn’t exclusively like her first single. Anyhoo, time to wrap-up the month. So August… if I were to sum it up in one word I guess ‘crazy’ would fit the bill. Not that anything super crazy happened but there was mixed of ‘oh my gosh this is awesome’ to ‘life isn’t treating me right!’ Yeah, how dramatic!—
