Ah, yes. February: the month where most of my savings vanish. Not because I’m going to buy things for my significant other (who’s nonexistent at the moment), but because of the UPLB Feb Fair and the Graphic Literature Guild‘s Elbikon!
I’ve always been a night person.
I remember my dad telling me a story about how he was telling my young self that when the lights go out, I should go to sleep, but I didn’t and I just kept looking at him. This was around 2 am if I remember correctly.
(I’m not good at telling stories, but I swear it’s amusing when he tells it.)
It has its perks. I’m more productive, especially when I haven’t done anything exhausting during the day. My head is clearer, even, especially if only the reading lamp is on and I have good music on. Plus I get to think (and write) about things I wouldn’t normally think about when the sun’s out. I don’t know why; I haven’t read much about it. On weekends, I get to have a marathon of the TV series I watching. Yes! (This was before sophomore year in college, though. *sigh.)
Being able to stay up all night has its downsides, too.
Here’s a little something to keep me motivated during the final week of the semester. Original wallpaper made by this person from DeviantArt.

Just a little more push.
We can do this.

What Started it All
You see, I bought a succulent back in April of 2014, at the Flower and Garden Show. It costed PHP 50 (roughly $1) which I thought was pretty reasonable for such a cute plant (my grandmother thought otherwise. Ha!).
I was excited when I got home. I immediately, but somewhat carelessly, transferred the plant to another pot and watered it. Little did I know, it was a no-no for new plants, especially for succulents/cacti. I must have drowned and damaged most of the roots in the process. Anyway, the leaves started falling off gradually and it didn’t last a week. I think.
My grandmother took some of the leaves and put it in a pot. I didn’t know that it could grow from leaves or cuttings so I gave up and bid farewell to the plant. Continue reading “It’s Alive!”
