Things that are currently making me happy + Boracay 2016 Vlog

Hi guys! Today marks my first day in uni as as Second Year Dental Proper. Can you believe that? Summer 2016 went by really fast. :( I'm going to miss all those happy hours spent chilling and travelling. Of course, let's be real. School may not be really cool but I really missed everything that I used to do last semester (excluding the stress, haha). I'm happy and at the same time excited for what's in store this semester. I'm sure there would be more stress coming but I'm still hoping and wishing to find new things to love this semester. Today's post is all about the things that are currently making me happy and hopefully it'll bring you good vibes too all throughout the day. :) 
Basketball. One of the things that I'm currently enjoying is playing basketball. I'm not really into sports but I have joined before a basketball game in our school. I didn't gave much attention in basketball until I watched NBA Finals this season. I'm not really familiar with both teams but because everyone's cheering for the Warriors (almost everyone I know!!!) I went for the Cavaliers instead. I've decided to give my support to them that I cheered for Cavaliers from Games 1-7. I didn't even know that the team I was cheering would be the best team in NBA History! Despite all the Warriors-Cavaliers game, what really made me interested in watching and supporting Cleveland Cavaliers is Kyrie Irving. Even before I saw him play he already caught me. It was a love at first sight? Haha! I'm not kidding though.When I saw him play, I fell for him more. Those Kyrie moves totally got me plus he danced the best running man I watched, ever! I'm really into him, YES, I really like him. I know it's kind of insane but I'm thinking of saving for those Kyrie shoes! :)
Friends. Who isn't? My highschool bestfriends are the best set of friends that I have. We met up during the second week of June and everything still feels the same. It was a day of hugot lines! Gosh, I missed them so much!!! On the other hand, I'm getting a little emotional with my college friends. Most of them are transferring schools and I can't imagine how the remaining years would be without them. :( It's just hard to let go of someone who has been a big part of your life especially during the good times. I'm going to miss all of our crazy moments together, our YOLO trips- everything. :( 
Summer 2016. Reminiscing my Summer 2016 gives me good vibes and satisfaction. I thought this summer would be my least favorite because we haven't made any plans ahead unlike the previous years but no, everything came into surprise! Many unexpected beach trips, road trips, museum trips (name all the trips that you know!) had happened and all of it was worth it and enjoyed. This has got to be my best summer so far! :) 
Snackvox & Nametests. I don't know if it's just me or everyone else is already trying these apps in facebook.Whenever I have free time these are the sites where you can find me. I tried it once and I got addicted. The results are so accurate!!! It felt like snackvox and nametest borrowed half of my mind. I don't share the results on facebook because for sure, people will over react when they see it. Haha!! You have to try these apps. It's really fun! :) 
Blog. I'm happy with how my blog progressed the past few months. I know it's not even 1/2 of what the other bloggers achieve in their blogging career but I make it a point to enjoy and put my heart in every post that I make- whether it may be travel, fashion, diaries and even sponsored posts. I'm happy I was able to reach my goal for this blog this summer and that is to inspire everyone, including you, through this little blog of mine. I think that's what really matters. :)
