6-18/52

Hey there! I’ve been failing miserably at doing weekly posts when I promised to do so. So for my Over 52 series, here’s a bit of backtracking for the past 3 months. February (Week 6-9) 1. Binge-watched two of Netflix’s original series: Santa Clarita Diet, which stars Drew Barrymore as the undead and Timothy Olyphant as the ever supportive husband. Can I just say that I absolutely looooove this series! The cast ensemble has a totally wacky chemistry that makes the series so  ...

3, 4 and 5/52

Okay, remember when I told you that I suck at making weekly posts as I am lazy as a cow? Hate to say it but I told you so. In the events leading to my absence, I came up with the idea of compressing those three weeks worth of stories and happy thoughts to share in a single post (because why not?). Saves a lot of space and I don’t really want to bore you much further with three separate entries, now would I? 3/52: 1. Going loco over indie song playlists on YouTube, which I guess sums  ...

2/52

Hello, earthlings! I know, I know. I’m late to post this yet again. Here’s my week’s highlights for Week 2/52. 1. Two days before Janice’s flight, we bonded over TGIF’s loaded potato twisters and riblets. That was a much needed gastronomic delight. So long overdue and the best part of my week I should say. 2. Finally watched The Girl on the Train. I had mixed feelings about it so to speak. I clearly don’t know if I side with the book or movie on this one.  ...

1/52

I’m starting a blog series called OVER 52, which will be a weekender post most likely, and the goal of which is to document the highlights of my week. It’s a series inspired by one of the many blogs I follow Brunch at Audrey’s. I’ve said in my Notes Page that I’ve let go of my Sunday Currently series as I’ve found it to be mainstream for my taste and I wanted something that’s more personal to me. And so this is gonna be like those Friday Happy  ...

A Space I Could Call My Own

Hey guys! I’m so proud to present to you the new and improved Marian Meets World! Yey! After spending long hours in front of the computer, researching about the inner-workings of the blogging world and learning about themes, widgets, plugins and whatnots, I finally managed to snag my OWN little corner of the internet – my own blog under my own domain! Though I still have a lot to learn (analytics, site traffic, SEO’s – I honestly don’t have a clue about all  ...

New Home

Hey guys! I would be squeezing in some old write-ups from my previous blogs so watch out for that. Trust me, I’m not trying to recycle old stuff here, nor giving you the impression that I can’t come up with new material. It’s just that I feel like I owe them a new home, you know. I owe them that much. One day I’m going to look back on these words and see a completely different version of myself – broken, young, spirited, empty, ecstatic, wise, silly. In the  ...

Girl Behind the Blog

Introducing, the Daydreamer. Hello, world! In my first post I’m going to tell you a little bit about myself. You can call me Marian and I was born and raised in the Philippines. I’m a Registered Nurse by profession and currently lives in Al Ain, United Arab Emirates. For those of you who don’t know where the UAE is, it’s a gulf country in the middle east and is known for having the tallest building in the world. Yes, that would be the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, an  ...
