Happy Birthday Lolo!

By Jakii Munar in , ,

I was out with the family for a few days, we went to our grandparent's place which we usually do whenever there's an occasion to celebrate or just hang out together. It was were I also celebrated my birthday with Lola whom I share my birthdate with. This time it's Lolo's 75th birthday, his was rally on the 25th but we scheduled the eating ceremonies at 26 and 27th, and yes he spent his birthday for 3 days, literally.

Had so much fun even if I missed a lot of stuffs that is connected to friends and art, etc. But family is still family. Besides, I haven't got to be with them so much with the whole school eating me. Honestly, I liked it so much, I missed them even and my prayers were also answered. Why?

21st, which was Monday, I was supposed to post "I want to swim and I miss family outings" but then I cancelled it and just surfed the internet. I was hoping that time... I really wanted to swim and be with friends and with the family too, but since things happened now wouldn't be a good time. I just can't. I did not have pictures taken with my camera even though I brought it with me, my sister had though with hers. Also we spent the night of 26th talking to our aunt and cousin who resides in Japan and my other cousin who was working in Dubai. All was missing each other but happy to get those times, felt like we were all having the same family time day mood.

So atleast, Lolo's birthday gave me something and I could clearly remember while we ate at a pizza parlor during our third-day-lunch, I said "natikman ko na lahat ng gusto ko kainin within the past few days, no, months." and so my Lola said, "edi okay, nasagot yung prayers mo." But really, it is more than answered prayers, likely a blessing. Exaggerated it may seem, but I really appreciate that I had time with them and all that happened during those days, some happened where I got panicky and not so happy but its life, go to deal with it. The bigger picture is, I am still alive and we were never abandoned by someone who sees us all. :)

P.S Happy birthday Lolo! I love you!

Mini Thesis - Senior Year 2013: 1st Semester

By Jakii Munar in

(will update tomorrow; oct. 11,2013 12:18AM)
(updated; oct. 13,2013 1:57AM)

I am a day late from the "will update" statement I posted, why? Because I ended up sleeping all throughout Saturday and being gradually energized this Sunday. I must admit that I am lazy. Yes, I am.

I'm in a Fine Arts course who majors in Advertising, our subject Research Technique is about learning how things go around the industry of advertising agencies and being designers or artists.

So here it is, MINI THESIS Status= DONE!
First and foremost, I would like to thank everyone who supported me, and my group. It was a grueling semester and we managed to finish it last Friday. Take note, our group went first on presenting and God knows how my heart pounded everytime I spoke. Now, we are up against another thesis for the next semester.

Did not manage to bring my camera! It was just then when I had the idea of taking pictures! tsk fail! These are the only pictures I had that day hahaha

I have enjoyed this new experience, I know to myself that I may not be that of a good speaker for a crowd or what (even if I want to speak) whenever I'm nervous (I can't even straighten my tongue with my English skills when I'm freaking on the inside LOL) but I do know what I can handle and that I could bear more.

I wanted to thank the panelists including my professor for teaching us so much. It will be a great tool to use outside school and must turn these trials into advantages. Now, I should help myself graduate and achieve what I want to be.

"turn every problems into opportunities and make it as an objective" - this is what  told myself while I'm on my way home last Friday. It applies in real life, not just in our ad plans. :D

Pictures from a Friday

By Jakii Munar in , ,

This is the view when you are sitting (against the wall) of the AVR located in CAFA building, TUP-M.
It's very comfortable here, not quite the noise and the people from downstairs where we've always been since the start of our university days. Bachelor of Fine Arts is located at the ground floor.

 Left: it was really hot out there. Even if I rode an airconditioned bus.
Right: my classmate's legs, did not know until I saved it.

 Congratulations to all the contestants and to those who got their awards! :)

My classmate won his pageant that day. He first competed when we were in our frosh years, but now that He's already a senior, he tried it again :) Goodluck on your next competing rounds!

Sketch Sketches Sketching!

By Jakii Munar in

"I am honestly not good in drawing but I can't say that I can't draw this and that. I could always try and give my best at it." - this is what I say whenever I feel discouraged when I fail drawing what I want. It's really not about how good you're drawing would turn out, it's your art anyways. The important thing is that you loved and enjoyed what you did.
For the past years of my life I always tell myself, "hindi ko ata kaya 'yan," "hindi ako magaling sa realistic na drawing" but then, when I started my training (On-the-Job training) and having these long rides to and from home, it made me realize stuffs every single day.

These are my sketches from Thursday and Friday (yesterday). We had nothing to do, as in tambay talaga kami, walang J.O's! so I sketched, listened music from Myspace, took pictures and posted at instagram and ate. Hirap pala ng walang ginagawa sa isang advertising agency, sobrang nakaka-bato. haha

One more thing! Check my Behance account :D Yay! kunwari pro ako, haha joke lang masaya kasi dun ang gaganda ng works, total inspiration! <3

Supposedly, It's Lauren Young. I saw her IG photo while browsing insta, and tada! I drew her.
pwedeng mag-sorry?! hahaha

Steady. No-work 8 hours.
