Aside from watching numerous movies and series, sleeping around every chance that I get, eating whatever is inside my refrigerator, and whatever you can think of, I also scour the internet for new or overlooked music to listen to. In some of my Instagram stories, I try to include music into them and use these songs and since there are people who actually message me and ask what particular song was playing, I've decided to do a series where I'll share my current music favorites — The Mixtape.

The Mixtape will contain songs that I am currently into at the moment or it can be a very specific playlist for my current mood. Hope you could spare some of your time by listening to the songs included on the list and let me know which of the songs you liked the most. Enjoy listening, my dears!

Out of all the songs that's included in The Mixtape, this certain song by Kempeh is my absolute favorite. I have been in love with his music since I first heard it through one of ToThe9s' videos and trust me, his songs really are worth listening to. MYFLAME is pretty chill and something that I would blast on my car's radio (once I have my own car haha) during a road trip or if I'm stuck on traffic.

Although I have always liked the original version of Keyshia Cole's Love, I instantly fell in love with Don Mayor's remix of the said song as I heard it and it has been one of my go-to songs to keep myself pumped while I'm at work. I know it's weird because it doesn't give you that kind of vibe, but it does to me.

So far, this is the only track by a Filipino artist I have on my mixtape. It's an underrated song by Curtismith, a Filipino rapper and songwriter, and it's really worth listening to. Aside from the entirety of the song, I really liked the last line at the beginning of the song which says, "Better to have a short life that is full of what you like doing, than a non-life spent in a miserable way."

Back when I was a kid, I remember how my parents would usually blast Earth, Wind & Fire on our radio and would keep repeating September until we would all decide to switch to another song. Of all the September remixes that I have heard, this has got to be my favorite of them all.

Hope you enjoyed listening to the songs! x


Okay, so before I fully relaunch this little space of mine I call an online dump of my mundane thoughts and uninteresting photos, I have decided to do a quick summary of the reasons behind why I created and refurbished my blog, how it all came together, and what you can expect by lurking around and, hopefully, reading what I come up with.

Roughly around a year ago, my boyfriend was able to persuade me into getting my ass back to blogging as he noticed how thrilled I get whenever he would ask me to tweak his blog for him. Although nowadays, blogging has been somewhat different in comparison to how it was years ago when people used it more as an online diary rather than a means to earn, I still decided to push through. Although I was beyond ecstatic to finally have a platform to write on and focus on while I'm not at work, halfway through the year, I felt the need to stop.

At the beginning of my sudden "hiatus", I was confused on whether my itch to revamp my blog altogether was the reason behind it, but later on I realized that it was plainly because I was ordinary.

Back when I was a kid, and even until now actually, the people who knew me really well would understand that I have this unfathomable need to achieve beyond expected — be it in sports, dancing, and in whatever else I set my mind to do. It was something that the people around me knew well enough that they know to never expect anything less from what I can offer on the table. Although the pressure and support is overwhelming, it was already something that I was used to and an addiction I cannot resist — and that is the determination to seek more.

Reading the blogs I've come up with, I became fully aware of the fact that what I was doing wasn't out of the ordinary and can be done by just anybody. With that said, I ditched my old posts, refurbished my little space, and started anew because I refuse to be ordinary from now on. This little space will serve as my determination to start a new era — an era full of adventures, dreams to be fulfilled, countries to explore, and new stories to be told.

It won't come easy and it will be a hell of a journey, but this will be the beginning of the rest of my life.

Here we go.

Welcome to my blog, I am Nikki de Asis.
