Live Pure Conference 2017

Hello everyone and welcome back to another blog post. Last Sunday, 10th of September, I attended a really good conference which is the Live Pure Conference 2017. I was also present in last year’s conference– both of them were fun but I really enjoyed this year’s conference SO MUCH.

This year’s conference HAS a lot of booths and challenges! Aaaand a lot of artists were present and performed for the said conference.

The conference took place at Globe Circuit Event Grounds, Circuit Makati. So we’re about three hours away from the venue but it was all worth it!! Photo not mine.

Aside from worshipping, I was also happy to meet my best friend– Rhaine, again. Well if you still don’t know, she studies in Manila and I’m still in the province.

This was my outfit. All black. I don’t really want to make my top color black because it doesn’t suit the squarepants– but we’re required to wear black shirt so I just did. Haha.

We had a really good time exploring the booths. And we saw this Rogate booth which means a lot to us. Rogate means pray or pray for vocations.

Next, my favourite part of the day! We had a lot of sweat since it’s an open ground and we were like under the sun for more than 3 hours. Finally, our chapter leader gave us our shirts and it felt so refreshing to wear it!!

Well who wouldn’t like this shirt? It states You Matter. Mahalaga Ka in Filipino which is the main theme of the conference.

We also had a little photoshoot wearing the shirt but before that, we ate Sisig. Our favourite food!

And then night came, we weren’t feeling tired and this was when the worship took place. I was crying the whole time because these past few months, especially the days after the exams, I felt lost. I felt worthless. So it was really God’s plan to make me attend the conference.

Here’s what the crowd looks like at night. Photo not mine. Credits to the rightful owners!

The rest of the night was amazing though I cannot erase the fact that my stomach was already hurting that time. We went home safely, and it was a really great experience!

I have video clips but it doesn’t play if I’m not using my iPad. So, maybe next time!

When was the last time you attended an event and really enjoyed it?

Look What You Made Me Do | Music Video Reaction

Hello everyone, I’m pretty sure all of you have heard Taylor Swift‘s new song, Look What You Made Me Do. So for today, I’ll be reacting into the new music video and please comment down below if you feel the same or if you have something else to share!

Look What You Made Me Do by Taylor Swift

Okay. Alright. The first part was really scary.

Uhm, why’s she a zombie?!

It’s like a scene from Out Of The Woods but she’s scarier now

Honestly, she’d make a good Game of Thrones or The Walking Dead zombie.

Okay, what’s up with the bath tub full of jewelry?

Oh gaaaah I hate snakes!!!! Nooooo!

Alright good thing that was fast.

What’s up with the banging of cars? She looked like Katy!

Pretty cool cage there.

I love cats, but the scene was honestly scary. Good thing it was short. I hate masks!

Oooop.

I miss the old Taylor!

Nooo.

Seeing the You Belong With Me Taylor and the others was so good haha though why’s the scene like that?

WOAAAAAH

I’m sorry, the old Taylor can’t come to the phone right now. Why? Oh. Coz she’s dead.

CHILLS.

Taylor talking to another Taylor is hilarious!!!

Okay the message was so deep.


Haha. There are my thoughts about Tay’s new music video. I’ve researched about the issue between her and Kanye West and the Kardashians already. I know, I’m outdated, but it’s weird!!

I personally love Look What You Made Me Do, and I understand Taylor Swift. She’s had enough. She’s savage now. Haha.

What can you say about Look What You Made Me Do? Do you like it? Share your thoughts and opinions below!

August Playlist 2017

Hello everyone, it’s that time of the month again– although it’s a bit late this time. Haha. So hey, welcome to my August playlist!

August has also been rough for me in terms of music. I haven’t been able to search new music and listen to new genres. However, I hope you’ll still like this one!

Anyway, most of the songs will be Christian related because I attended an area conference last 27th and that’s probably one of the good things that has ever happened to me this August.

  • Set a Fire by United Pursuit, Will Reagan

This is probably one of the best songs ever!!! When we were having our praise and worship, I cried and cried and cried because everything just seems so right praising God. Set a Fire definitely let out all of my tears and one of my friends in the community had tongues while this song was playing. It was so memorable.

  • Real Love by Hillsong Young and Free

I so love this song as well. I can’t remember it clearly but when we had our youth camp last summer, I think we sang this one. Then one day, my cousin was playing this song on repeat and I just had to download the whole album in Spotify as well.

  • Pilgrim Days by United Pursuit, Will Reagan

This is another song that I love. I listened to it once and I absolutely loved the lyrics!!!

  • Am I Understood? by Relient K

So the amazing T.R Noble shared this song to me. When I listened to it, it was so amazing. The message and the lyrics are good. Thank you for sharing this song to me when I was so down, T.R! It’s such a great song.

  • Christ is Enough by Dwelling Place

Geez. It’s also another memorable song for me! This is the song where I cried so much as well. I just love this one.

I still have so many Christian songs in my pocket. But I feel like the songs above are the top 5 on my list. Let’s now head on to random songs that I’ve been listening to this August.

  • Middle of the Night by The Vamps

I just really love the beat of the song! And you guys know me, I love The Vamps!

  • Signs of the Times by Harry Styles

I have no words. I love this song.

  • A Smile In Your Heart by Ariel Rivera

This is an OPM song and I really love this. I recommend you to listen to this song!

  • 241 by Janine Teñoso

Another OPM song that is from the movie 100 Tula Para Kay Stella. I made a film review about that and you can check that out here. However, this song is so heartbreaking– brings back the movie feels!!

  • Opening Theme of Game of Thrones

I don’t really know what to put in the title because in Spotify, it’s called Main Titles. But you guys get me if you watch Game of Thrones. AND IF YOU’VE WATCHED SEASON 7 ALREADY COME TALK TO ME. Haha.

What’s your favourite song last August? Do you know any of the songs above?

900 Followers Q and A

Hello everyone! I know this is so late– I’m sorry but life’s been so busy. Anyway, here it is!

Maggie asked:

  • What’s your favourite thing about cats?

My favourite thing about them is that they are SO fluffy!! I admit, cats aren’t really that nice and sweet compared to dogs, but when I hug my cats, it’s just the best feeling ever. It’s so soft and fluffy. Haha.

  • What’s an inspirational blogpost you recently read?

This is not the most recent one but I was really inspired by Diana’s post, Nourishing My Spiritual Life. It’s a really good read and y’all should read it as well if you still haven’t!

Bea Freitas asked:

  • What is your greatest accomplishment?

I won’t say that this is the greatest but I was really happy when I got the highest score in our Italian periodical exam. It was mind blowing since I suck at Italian! I don’t understand the prepositions and then boom, I got the highest. I’m so happy with it.

  • What is your favourite fashion trend at the moment?

I’m not a fan of Korean dramas, but I really love Korean outfits!! It’s also a HUGE trend in the Philippines right now. Here are some of it:

  • How are you doing today?

Thank you so much for asking. Haha. I’m doing great today. I have finished some of the tasks that I need to accomplish but I’m quite hungry right now.

  • What are you looking forward to?

Uhm, Christmas? Haha. Some of you are really excited for fall and trust me, I am too but we don’t experience fall here. So I’m really looking forward to Christmas. Christmas vibes are around the Philippines!!

  • Other than family, friends, food and water, what can you not live without?

Hmm. This blog I suppose and books!! I really can’t live without this blog anymore. It’s addicting. Never in my life I have thought that I’ll love blogging this much. And of course, books. Just because.

thegeckoonline asked:

  • What made you make your blog URL, as it is now?

My blog URL, jirahmerizz.wordpress.com obviously came from my name. Haha. Before, it was jisimpx.wordpress.com because I don’t want others to see it or to know who’s behind the blog. But later on, I realized that I should reveal myself already because all my life is in this blog already. I don’t really know… but I’m really happy with my URL. Wish I could go self hosted soon!

starringpamela asked:

  • Who’s your go-to band or artist when you can’t decide on something to listen to?

My go-to band is EDEN and my go-to artist until now is Ed Sheeran! But I’m really in love with Kodaline as of the moment.

  • What is something that a ton of people are obsessed with but you just don’t get the point of?

Unicorns and hello kitty. Aha lol. I don’t really get what’s so obsessing with them but yes they’re cute. No offense to those who love them so much!

  • What do you hope never changes?

Nothing is really permanent in this world, but I really hope our family’s love never changes and how we praise God as well. We just need to improve it.

Amelia in Hull asked:

  • What’s your favourite color?

Anything bright, anything pastel. But to be specific, I really love pink and sky blue.

  • Who was your first follower?

Alexander. I don’t remember his URL and we never really talked but I’m soooo thankful he followed me!!

  • What’s your favourite season?

Since we only have two seasons, I’d go with the sunny season.

Simple Serenity asked:

  • What are your favourite blogposts to write and why?

Hmm, I really like writing simple but talky blogposts (just like what I always do) and I also like writing book and film reviews. It’s awesome!! I’d love to write blogposts about beauty products and review someday too 🙂

ItsSimplyMeJasmine asked:

  • When did you get your first cat?

I got Muning in the early February, 2015, when I was in the 9th grade. Woah, just noticed that Muning is two years old already. Aka 18 years because 1 year is already 9 years for cats– if I remember it correctly!

  • What’s the most embarrassing thing or moment you’ve had?

Hmm. Maybe when I sang in the mass at our recollection. My voice was really out of tune back then. It’s embarrassing but it’s also quite a funny experience.

  • Favourite season and why?

Since we only have two seasons in the Philippines, I’d go with sunny season. I don’t really like rain. It’s hassle.

Margaret from soulfood101blog asked:

  • If there is one thing you could change about your school year, what would it be?

I’m really happy with my curre’m allErgnt school year and with my current classmates and teachers. So I won’t change anything.

Hayley of Luna asked:

  • What is your favourite food?

I honestly have a lot because I never say no to food! Well, except if it has peanuts because I’m allergic to them.

Tabi Bee asked:

  • What’s your most favouritest ever place you’ve visited? (It doesn’t have to be abroad)

I really love Manuel Uy Beach in Calatagan, Batangas. It’s been so long since we went to a beach that’s why it’s memorable for me. Here’s the link if you want to read it: Trip To Manuel Uy Beach Calatagan, Philippines

  • Do you like going to the beach? What’s your favourite thing about it?

Of course. I love the sun, and being in the beach I am so exposed to sun and that makes me happy. I also love the fresh water and the view!!! It’s just so amazing!

  • Favourite book ever that everyone should read?

Since Girl Online inspired this blog, then I’d go for Girl Online by Zoë Sugg. It’s a light and good read that everyone should check out. I also recommend Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. It’s amazing!

There you go. Thank you so much again for 900 followers, everyone! It means A LOT to me!

Hope everyone is having a good day! Ciao!

Stay Positive September

Hello everyone!!! September. Is it really September already? Weird, right? Time’s been so fast!! It’s crazy!

I won’t say that August was fast because for me, it’s one of the slow months and too many had just happened! Last month, we’ve had our exams, I’ve had a lot of mental breakdowns and lastly, I had an on-off fever and gah it was so insane! But August is one of the months that I’m most proud of this 2017. I can’t believe I surpassed it. Too many challenges, too many tests (literally) and too many breakdowns.

But this isn’t a rant about how my August has been. It’s about welcoming the new month– so without further ado,

September. In the Philippines, we have this thing called Ber-months– which means Christmas is coming! We don’t have autumn in the Philippines that’s why we’re so hyped to jump in to Christmas already. I personally love ber-months because it starts to get cold. I love the cold air in the Philippines, especially in my province, it’s just so fresh aaand I can wear my sweatshirts already! I have a lot, swear!

Anyway.. I was scrolling through Pinterest last week and saw a cute and simple challenge that will help me to stay positive this September. I chose to share it with y’all because I know you can make a change. You can do this! Here it is:

And that’s it. Pretty simple, right? I hope you do this challenge as well. It’s a really cute idea and swear this will help us lot!


Just a little sharing…

I am so excited to clean my room tomorrow. I’m writing this tonight, 22:36 and I’m freaking sleepy. I also can’t wait to wash my shoes!!!

Aaaand I had my hair cut!!!! Here’s me if you wanna see me:


Sorry for the delayed Q and A post. I promise to have it posted tomorrow!!! Fingers crossed!

Okay, I hope you’re having a lovely day and bye!!!

Journey To Being Healthy

August 24, 2017 – Thursday

I write this at 8:35am. I skipped school today because I’m ill and we’re currently on the way to the doctor. Since we’re still pretty far from my doctor, I decided to write this post to make me remember that I should start being healthy.

I am totally not healthy. They say that my skin is a lot less tanner than theirs, but the truth is, I’m pale. My skin is pale, my lips are pale and my eyes look like they haven’t been sleeping for years.

I went to school yesterday and honestly it was an unproductive day for me because I was just like sleeping even though my eyes are open. I am totally not feeling well yesterday yet I decided to go to school. Everytime we go outside I feel dizzy and my body temperature changes from time to time. I also went to the clinic twice yesterday but my body temperature was normal. I don’t really know what’s wrong with me.

So now, I’m waiting for the doctor… The nurse said she’d arrive at 10am. It’s cold here and at the same time, boring. I have nothing else to do.

Alright, update. It’s 15:37 already and I definitely forgot to update this post. The doctor told me that I might have dengue or UTI but that’s IF my body temperature becomes abnormal again. She prescribed me with two kinds of medicine, I think they are both antibiotic which will prevent me to have dengue or UTI.. Not exactly sure but I guess that’s it. I will take the meds for a week then I should start drinking the vitamins that she gave me. She prescribed me a vitamin that would help increase the iron in my body.

I hope this will all work out. I don’t ever want to feel this kind of illness again. It makes me want to pull off my head because it freaking hurts. Haha.
Okay. I should start with little changes in my food, exercise and my daily routine. I hope eventually this will all turn out well.

Food:

  • Eat a meal with veggies in it. Atleast twice a week.

Because I seriously don’t eat vegetables. My parents forces me to eat vegetables, but I don’t just like it. Ahhh. Lesson learned.

  • Drink more water.

I thought my water intake was enough, but still, I need to drink more. I should probably go for 8 glasses of water since I think I only take up 3-5 glasses.

  • Reduce drinking coffee.

Because sometimes I can drink 3-4 cups of coffee a day. Especially if it’s cold– ah, the struggle!!!

Exercise:

I’m still looking for a good exercise plan and 30-day challenges and such. I’ll update this as soon as I find the right one for me!!

My routine:

I can’t absolutely say what will be my routine because routines are hard to change. But I aim to be asleep already before 11. If you have read my after school routine, you guys know that after school, I sleep first before studying. I think I need to change that.

August 25, 2017

Hello everyone!! This was supposed to be posted yesterday but I completely forgot to. However here it is now.

Update on my body temperature, the on off fever stopped (thank you, Lord!) but I still get dizzy at times.

That’s it and I hope you’re all having a lovely time wherever you are right now!!

PS. Happy birthday, Elline!
