A friend of mine asked this question awhile ago. This is one question I find interesting since the person who would ask me this would probably get some interesting answer as well.
My love for music is very vast to the point that I appreciate almost any type of music as long as I can relate to the lyrics, if it inspires me, if I strongly feel the words of the song, and if I find the harmony amusing. From house, to pop, RnB, classical, alternative, punk, indie, soul, and my recent favorite… kpop. LOL!
Browsing through my playlists is an experience and a journey in itself. It can make you feel sad, empowered, inspired, laugh, so much more. The likes of Adele, James Morrison, Sara Bareilles, Tyrone Wells, Alicia Keys, Bruno Mars, Jason Mraz, John Mayer, Michael Buble, and The Script helps me deal with matters of the heart, the Glee soundtrack, Natasha Bedingfield, Carrie Underwood, Pink, and Katy Perry helps me gain a different perspective on life.
On a different note, New Found Glory, All Time Low, Fall Out Boy, Paramore, Dashboard Confessional, Motion City Soundtrack, and Yellowcard, helps me release some angst while appreciating their music and lyrics, while music from the Queen B, Britney(lol!), 2pm, SNSD, Beast, Shinee, f(x), and After School keeps in an ecstatic and giddy mood most of the time.
Music indeed influences our lives. No matter what kind of music you listen to, as long as it serves a purpose for you, I’m good with it. No genre is better than the other. Remember that.
Below a crappy cellphone photo of my recently added music. ;-) There are some favorites but its quite diverse. How about you, what’s on your playlist?
I’m feeling a mix of different emotions right now. I’m thinking of pulling back, I’m scared, nervous, excited, anxious, and a lot of questions are popping in my head as I type these letters. Whats the deal?
I’ll start teaching by college students this Monday. Yup, I’m officially a college professor. I’m throwing myself in a world infested by mostly old folks. I’m a young blood aiming to teach young ones as well. Its a challenging yet noble job.
Maybe I’m just really nervous right now. Gawd! I hope everything turns out well. ;-) Go go go!
Wish me luck will you? ^_^
Me and some photo buddies decided to do an Intramuros photowalk last week. I realized two things. One, Intramuros is indeed a very beautiful place to wander around. Two, painit ng painit sa Pilipinas. LOL!
When we were approaching San Agustin Church, we saw this quaint vintage decor shop popularly known as “The Papiér Tolé Shop”. This shop was established in the 1600’s. They specialize in selling lots of handmade vintage decorations, from paper machéd pen holders, boxes, to stylish and perfectly crafted accessories and photo frames.
A vintage collector and any lover if cute “abubots” or whatnots will definitely love this place. They sell a variety of stuff for almost any type of collector. I find their collection of small bicycles and other figures made up of wire splices. This is Filipino creativity in action.
You may visit the The Papiér Tolé Shop at the Plaza San Luiz Complex, Gen. Luna cor. Urdenata St., Intramuros, Manila. Its just adjacent to the San Agustin Church.
Check out their website at http://www.thepapiertoleshop.com for more information. Visit them and tell me what you find interesting alright?
