Baby Naming

Before I was pregnant, or even way back before I even got married. I always love the idea of naming my own child. I have all the list that I wanted to name my future children. I feel so certain by then that my future kids will be named like what I want them to be.

Now, that I'm pregnant, baby naming is sure a mind-boggling experience. And then there's your significant other that you have to consider as well, after all he help you create the growing life in your tummy. But of all those list that I always had in mind, there was not one of them that we ended up choosing.

We settle with a name that my husband literally pick, but of course with my Approval. I already told him what kind of names I like, I'm not Old Fashion when it comes to names. I want to be a little different and not so common. I was really surprise that he did pick that name. I would have never guess.

Although we as a couple, finalize the name of our unborn child. I decided not to tell the world about it just yet.

Part of it is that, I wanted it to be a surprise, I was thinking of telling people later on when I'm about to pop or really close to my due date. The other part is avoiding nasty comments or reactions. It's not that I care, but the thought of people having negative comments really is annoying and depressing. No matter how other people say, "relax! it's not their child" but the truth is, it will linger in your mind. I have unfortunately, seen it before and even though I was not the one who was in that position, I felt bad for the couple. Pregnancy should be celebrated and people who has nothing nice to say should just shut it.

I have already been asked by a bunch of people about our Baby's name. It does make me feel cornered to be honest, as if I'm doing something bad. I want to tell them that we have not decided yet, however, opinions might arise. So, I decided to be honest and let them know that we do have a name in mind but we're not ready to share it yet. Amazingly, people are respectful about our decision, although some random friends and co-workers might have those reactions where they will say "Are you serious?" "Why not?" I just let it slide. For me, this is better and will stay that way until I'm ready.

Anyway, I'm really glad that my husband and I finally decided on a name. My husband literally love the name. Baby naming was definitely something that made us more closer to each other.

Reading Again

I've been really slacking in terms of reading. According to my Goodreads, I'm 21 Books Behind Schedule. Ahhh!

I have too much books in my bookshelves, Nook and iBooks but I do not have the time to read them.

Lately, I regain my love for reading and this is what I'm currently reading:

THE MARTIAN by Andy Weir

I know it's now showing on theaters but I refuse to watch the movie not until I finish this book. I haven't finish it yet, however, this book is so interesting. I love how this books is written. It actually gets your attention. It makes you believe that it actually happened.

Oh! The beauty of a good book. I can't wait to finish it and watch it on the big screen.

As what Mark Watney said, "I'm pretty much f***ed."

Something I used to love

It's been too long since I grab my camera. I have been so busy with work, that I don't get to explore Pensacola at all. I'm pretty sure there's a lot of nice places in Pensacola. I'm just too busy (i guess..) with so many things that I forgot to appreciate nature and how I used to just love and capture them.

I feel so old and dull just thinking that I'm not enjoying my time here at all. When we were used to be stationed in Key West, I honestly wasn't loving living there, but of course we do not have a choice. Life is what you make it, they say. Although I did not really enjoy my time there, I did have some fun just wondering around and taking random pictures. It was a way for me to appreciate what we had at that moment.

I'm not a photographer, but just an enthusiast. I most likely take pictures of views and landscape than with people. Looking at those old pictures while in Key West, I begin to think that I've been missing a lot lately. I need to get out again and make some memories while we're here.

Some of the pictures while in the Keys.
