A Mini Review: Inside Out

I'm probably the last person to recommend an animated film because it's not usually my cup of tea, although I have a few favorites (Up, The Book of Life, Tangled, Frozen, Big Hero 6).. But I just cannot let you not know about this film. You might have seen countless of posts related to this movie popping in and out on your social medias because it is sooooo good, and yes, it's been a couple of days since I have first watched it but I am still affected. Well played, Pixar.. well played.

(Left to right: Fear, Sadness, Joy, Disgust and Anger)

This animated film features the different emotions that live inside Riley's head, (and/or brain,) the "headquarters," -- Joy, Sadness, Anger, Fear and Disgust. As Riley grows, so as her collection of memory spheres that gets stored, and then, there are these so-called "core memories" (like the very first time she opened her eyes to the world and sees her parents, the first time she scored a goal playing hockey with her dad and a lot more) which are significant memories/achievements that eventually develop her personality. The conflict comes in when Riley's family moves to another city because of her dad's work as it stressed Riley and her emotions.. and something happens with all those "core memories."  

The movie will take you down memory lane, well, that's the case for me. It took me back to my childhood/pre-teen years and all these internal conflicts that I struggled with (still struggling with). And there was this part, I have no recollection of it whatsoever (but maybe I did have/go through), that just tugged at my already vulnerable heart strings. 

No spoilers on here (just don't read "The Sunday Currently" post before this review). I'll just leave it at that. 

So if you haven't seen it, go watch it. You will never regret it!

(Me: lights off, grabs a bag of M&M's, rewatches Inside Out, probably bawl my eyes out in a bit #shameless)

Listening | Ready by Kodaline

Thinking | How cute Dr. K's smile was last Friday night #pabebe

Smelling | Our newly fixed air-conditioning! (Finally, after a month of suffering, maintenance guy got hold of the valve and fixed it! It feels so good to be back to my room.)

Wishing | I could be where you are now, I bet you are busy but still wherever you are, I'd like to be close.. #Krush

Wearing | "Don't grow up it's a trap" tee and my purple mushroom pj bottoms

Loving | All the feels from the movie "Inside Out," I got really emotional because of Bing Bong. Watch the clip below, you guise.. and if you haven't seen it yet, please go watch it. It's Pixar's best!

I missed a "The Sunday Currently" post because it was my first day back to work (first day back from Eid Adha break and first day of the week in the Kingdom is Sunday) and I am pulled out to another ward. I came home knackered so I just rested a bit, took a shower and slept.

Maybe next Sunday, then. In shaa Allah.

Til next blog.

Windows 10

Since news of Windows 10 came out, I've been excited over this! Because 1. it's free and 2. the start up menu, the ones from earlier versions of Windows OS, will be back with this upgrade! 


So for Windows 8 users, reserve your upgrade now (I already did *wink*).

The Sunday Currently, No. 1

Well, hello, August!

It is a new month, and I want to try something new for this blog. Introducing.. "The Sunday Currently." I was lurking around Maine Mendoza's blog (or better known as Eat Bulaga's Yaya Dub) and saw this. I was like this is do-able. So I am doing it. Hah! Btw, this concept is by blogger Siddathornton.


Reading | As of lately, I am subscribed to a whple lot of British YouTubers and have been watching/enjoying their videos and vlogs. One of them, Zoella, has a book called "Girl Online" and I am minutes away from finishing it. It's a light, happy read. Her second book will actually be out in a few days, I believe, and it is called "Girl Online: On Tour." Aside from that, I am also reading 2 other books.

Writing | This blogpost, and other hugot notes because I am inspired by this. Spoken word poetry ftw!

Listening | To my sister's voice because we're on vidcall! 


Smelling | My room's very, very hot stench because the air conditioning is not working. 

Wishing | I was back home. Naman talaga 'tong buhay OFW. #homesick

Hoping | I lose the weight I put on while I was on 2-week Eid Fitr break. 4 kilos of weight.. like whaaaat?

Wearing | My black shirt that has "#SELFIE" on it and my purple pajama pants with headphones-on-hearts print.

Loving | My weight loss progress. I seriously have exercising and avoiding rice for this week. Go, push!

Wanting | To eat junk hahaha kasi naman pag diet I think of eating bad agad hahaha

Needing | more than 24 hours a day para happy 

Feeling | productive because I exercised, I ate well (boiled squash, carrots, cucumber, spinach and baked chicken), I did my laundry and writing this blogpost.

P.S. It is ultimate crush's birthday today, so I'm putting a favorite recent photo of him here.

Til next update!
