I got my heart right here... I got my scars right here.



our mashup of "Rolling in the Deep" by Adele and "Crazy" by Gnarls Barkley




Now that we're done with our baby thesis (the last freakin' "BABY" that we'll have to put up with), it's time to finally listen to some good music, catch up on my Zs and then recharge myself. I need to get my endorphin kick, attend to a whole lot of other things and most especially BREATHE.

My thesis groupmates and I are just really glad it's over... One hour and a half inside the chamber of critique is something we always dread. Instead of thinking about how to explain our design direction well a while ago, all I could think of was the number of minutes before I can get out of the room. I know that makes me sound like a really bad student, but when you've been deprived of sleep for so long, drained of creativity and energy, there's nothing much left to think about... I'm looking forward to planning for our exhibit and thesis. Of course I'm not excited about the work load, I just really want to get it over with! Sorta funny how my mates and I just want to get this course done so we can take another course and follow a completely different career path (more on that sensitive topic on another post).

I can't even think of any more things to write about. Slept for about 5 hours already but after reading the e-mails and Facebook/Google Plus notifications I think I wanna reunite with my soft bed again. I feel like this entire week's done so much damage to my body, especially those last two days of zero sleep. We took 20-minute "power naps" but they weren't counted since we were still answering to each other's questions about our plate while taking turns on Nini's bed. (Seriously feel like I'm not making sense now)

I hope you enjoy the mashup I posted! I personally don't like the way I sang cos I was too chill (hello, sharps). But I love how Riz's voice is like a warm blanket (I love my sister's voice) and Rob's guitar skills are so evident. We're trying to meet up at Robin's dad's attic each week to produce more videos. Our aim is to get them all in one take, with no modifications in the sound quality during editing. We'll be adding more people to each jam session!!! Woohoo! Subscribe to the Sound Circle HERE. All videos done by Luis Daniel Tabuena.


Oh, and I hate myself for not discovering the awesomeness of Abel Tesfaye AKA The Weeknd early on... The whole album is just pure eargasm. Download it for free HERE.

Hey Raleene,

Im not sure if you got my previous message, I dont know where it went. LOL. but I do have an off-topic question.

When you had your blue-black hair, what shade of eyebrow powder did you use? Is it okay if I use dark brown? or should I use something a tad bit gray? LOL

THANKS! and so sorry for the super random beauty query :)

Anon 4:56- I used a black eyebrow pencil from Maybelline! And clear brow gel from mac. I think I liked the pencil cos I could control the coverage and draw thin, wispy lines instead of the heavier coverage from using a powder and brush.
