Things to be happy about today

(1) Ludwin surprised me with something today: a Dymo label-maker! IN PINK! 

Label-making happinesssssss!

People closest to me know that the way to my heart is really through school & office supplies. And boy, did he give me the ultimate school supply to shame all school supplies! A little background: As a kid, I grew up incredibly fascinated with my aunt's blue Dymo label-maker. But since it was considered a "grown-up" gadget, it wasn't something I could really play with. I remember telling this to Ludwin a few months back, but I didn't actually think he would go out of his way to look for one, let alone buy me one for no occasion at all! Not our anniversary, no big fight  nothing. He said he just really wanted to give me this, partly to motivate me for school, but mostly because he wanted to make the little 6-year-old in me really happy. Folks, I am not a usually cheesy person, but I am telling you: This. Booooy. :)

The Caption-Maker (as it is now apparently called) comes with three wheels: uppercase letters, lowercase letters, and cursive. And it even comes with a matching pouch! How incredibly cute! Can you feel my giddiness?? I've just finished labeling my Rules of Court. All the other codals are up next :D #geeeeky

Thank you, Louie! You're awesomesauce, as always.

(2) Dingdong proposed to Marian on live television!

It was only in law school that I had the guts to come out of my secretly-jologs closet: I like keeping myself updated with local showbiz news. I found a soulmate in Clarisse, my law school best friend. It's become our little hobby / official sport to visit entertainment blogs and take a shot at guessing the blind items. This is not without merit though - we do learn a lot from it, especially when these celebrities get embroiled in legal disputes! Sarah Lahbati, Claudine & Raymart, Zoren & Carmina, James & Kris... the list goes on. Their lives are crazy, yes, but they're ripe with opportunities to test ourselves with the law, too. #justification

But really, we're just suckers for romance and baduy-kilig feels. And #DongYan is our ultimate OTP! You can say what you want about Marian, but that girl is beautiful! Her underarms are soooo putiiiii! Her IG feed is always so positive, and inspiring, too. (Jologs emerging! I repeat: jologs emerging!!) I love that she always posts pictures when she visits old churches, and pays tribute to Mama Mary. It's evident how deep her faith in God is, and it shows in the love she shares with her family, friends, fans and Dong. And also: HAVE YOU SEEN HER KILI-KILI! Sobrang idol lang talaga :)) 

So, really, we could not be any happier that these two are finally engaged! I was texting Clarisse like crazy when I caught the proposal live on her show. Grabe, I think the two of us have to go out and celebrate! 

(3) UP wins its first game in two-years!

Need I say more? It's funny how small victories can bring an entire community together. There's nothing like the school spirit of UP. May halong humor, self-deprecation, and above all, heart. Puso. Laban. 

I may not be able to go (because readings, huhu) but you can't question my love. Congrats, UP MBT! One game at a time! 


What today is: Proof that nothing — NOTHING  is impossible.
