Sibling In-Charge [Sunday Post #1 & Stacking The Shelves #9]


*Sunday Post is a weekly meme created by Caffeinated Book Reviewer where we share news or showcase stuff happening on the blog or around the blogosphere. 

I've been meaning to participate in Caffeinated Book Reviewer's Sunday Post for quite some time now, but I keep forgetting to make a banner that would fit the kitty banners on my blog. Well, I did have some free time recently and was able to make this. Isn't it cute? My obsession with cats is unhealthy, I swear.

My little brother traveled back here in the Philippines last month for holidays and we've been out and about, spending time with each other because he's leaving again in a few days. Basically, this was the reason why I went MIA for a couple of weeks and had no urge to blog at all. We were always out and would come home fairly late, and I would be really tired to even get on the computer to do a little bit of blog work. However, the broski and I've decided to lay low for a while, and stay home. He's currently attending review classes in preparation for the SATs next January 2016, so I've been playing chauffer and I get to blog while he's at school.

I've come to conclude that it's hard being the "adult" in the house. Staying solo has been something I'm used to (even though I live next door to my grandmother and uncle), but with the widdo bwudder in the house, it's kinda exhausting. Waking up a little earlier than usual (which means sleeping earlier than usual), change in food and budgeting etc. The folks, meanwhile, are having fun being solo... and also constantly blowing up our phones with calls and texts.

I've also been playing around on Photoshop, trying to form a new header, but my creative juices are little dry so I might have to put it out for a while.

Also, I forced my little brother into reading Ready Player One by Ernest Cline, and when he finished, I pressured asked him to do short guest review for the blog, to which he says: "SO GOOD, 10/10 WILL READ AGAIN".

CURRENT OBSESSIONS



I've been hearing this remix over the radio for the past week, but the radio DJ's never really promote it! I had to google "Cheerleader Girl Remix" and behold, sweet Jamaican pop star Samantha J was the cute hip voice in the song! I can't get this song out of my head, no lie. 
Next week, I'm going to be working on reviews of books I read in the past month (most likely mini reviews, because I sure did read A LOT) and probably get ready for my blog's 1st year blogiversary! (Watch out, a giveaway might be in store for you!)

Have a great week y'all!
