Mixtape Monday: Chill by the Beach

Last weekend, Mark and I traveled to Liwliwa, Zambales to celebrate our 8th anniversary. We really had no plans at first — we traveled a lot the past few months that we ended up being kind of broke — but eventually, we decided to go to Zambales a day before. It was one of those “spur of the moment” things, you brain storm, you think of a place, you google, and then you pack your bags and go. The sea has been calling me for weeks now, with all the mess and chaos that’s happening with my life, and finally, we’ve reunited, even for just a quick two day escapade.

 

That trip was kind of a turning point for me. It shook me up from the darkness and brought me back to the path that I’ve wanted to take. It was not easy, depression is such a bitch that it took over most of my days, but I’m glad to know that there are people behind my back who are willing to march on with me as I paved my way through life. Being able to talk to Mark and being able to escape my worries for a day or two, was, in a way, my alarm clock to betterment. I’m doing better now, and I am finally being able to write again.

 

The trip was short lived, but it definitely stayed in my heart. I took the inspiration and curated some really nice chill songs that are awesome for the beach. I know this isn’t timely, considering that there’s actually a storm coming up, but I hope this would be something that you could bookmark on and go back once it’s really time to hit the shores.

  1. Yay finally you’re in WP na! 🙂

    It’s okay if the trip is short, the important thing is you’re able to take a break from the city all the stress of work. Haha and you’re with someone you love. Naks! 🙂

    Whatever it is that’s worrying you, I hope you’ll feel better soon. It must be the quarter-life crisis, since I’ve been all confused lately too. Hayy life why do we need to complicate it…

    I’m not into music, but I tried listening to the first song and it sounds good. Listening to it while typing this now haha
