May is a very special month for me. Aside from the fact that this is my birth month, it’s summer too! Pretty amazing huh. So this blog talks about why I was not able to update since I cannot remember the date of my last post. Fast forward to today, I am busy because of few things.

  1. I am a certified business woman now! Yes. I am a business woman now. It’s pretty much related to one thing that I ever loved! Apparels. Yey! I have a new business that’s called Renee’s Closet. It’s formerly known as Dress to Kill but that’s way too overused. I decided to have it named after mine. It’s more of a summer collection. You can check on my Facebook account to see more of it.
  2. I am a weekend warrior at the beach. Thank holy goodness for the weekend rest days! I get to camp at the beach every weekend. Surf. Eat. Read. Sleep. This is an ideal life. So the place I go to is a remote area and the connection is sporadic, I can’t find time to share with you my wonderful experience back there. I will make sure to post pictures soon.
  3. I am reading a lot lately. Sometimes what we need is something that’ll feed our minds and soul. One good thing about the new Blackberry Software Update is that I get to download from amazon.com. That was the reason why I have Our Daily Bread that I, take note, can also set to remind me every end of my shift at work. What a great way to start my day. (My work starts at night and ends in the morning.) I bought 10 new books. I have about 50 eBooks to read. And believe me, this is euphoric and so addicting.

There it goes. These are the things that fill my days. Fill me in with yours.

“I’m starting to realize that people lack good mirrors. It’s so hard for anyone to show us how we look, & so hard for us to show anyone how we feel.”
― John Green, Paper Towns

This book is now listed as one of my favorites. I was kinda surprised how John Green can easily make you laugh by his metaphors. He is a genius and to me, the story is twisted, exciting, and funny.

There’s a puzzle, a mystery to solve. And everytime you turn the pages, you get excited to see how resourceful the characters are and wonder how J.G was able to write it. He is generous enough to make me wander in the U.S while I was just sitting in my office table. I felt like I am part of the story. I felt involved and made me think of my own longing for an affair to the world.

This is different from his other famous books, The fault in our stars and Looking for Alaska. That is quite surprising. I mean, after TFIOS, I cried a river. Hell..oww..

The ending is not bad. But I was kind of sad. How fortunate ironies can happen.

And Margo is such a strong girl, She loves mystery so much that she became one.(borrowed line from the book)
