"Right now you're thinking 'Why didn't I mind my own business?' Well, for the past three days I've watched everyone in this bar having fun while you've been sitting here minding your own business. But in my opinion, if you spend your whole life not getting involved, you might look up one day and realize that you've opted out, that you're not a part of life anymore, and that your own business is a lonely place."
Listen To You've Got Growing Up To Do By Joshua Radin while reading on...
Remember that old adage that goes "don't judge a book by its cover"? Well, in my case, I judge a book by its publisher. I hoarded used books on the internet a couple of months ago. They're all from my latest favorite romance novel (yes, I'm tacky like that) author. The seller was kind enough to give me a few book freebies. I wasn't planning on reading the freebies as I'm not really a huge fan of those thin paperback romance novels. I prefer the thick regency or historical romance ones. But my lack of new books to read has compelled me to read them.
It was actually one of those rare instances when you stumble upon what you thought was an incredibly cheesy book only to find out that it is actually saturated with a lot of inspiring quotes. The quote above was from one of those books.
My capable photog and tree!
You are probably sick of my face by now. I know I am. I just couldn't resist posting all these photos. Looking at them makes me all warm and fuzzy inside. It's probably the colors.
If someone asks me what my favorite month is, I'd probably say it's December. Nothing beats the holiday season. But March comes a close second. There's just too much promise...and hope. Other countries are anticipating spring time while we here in the tropics are already prepping up for the summer season. And the summer season is practically tantamount to happiness and excitement.
When I was still in school, I'd get all giddy when the month of February is peeled off from the calendar to reveal the fresh month of March. I'd be restless, anticipating the long school break, completely enthralled with the prospect of swimming in the beach and watching my favorite animes.
Growing up, there were a lot of days when I'd bitch about the humidity and the infernal heat the summer season evokes. But deep down inside, I'm glad we are blessed with such a climate. In comparison to floods and destructive typhoons, I'd take the summer season any day.
So yes. Hope you guys like the photos. We went out of our way(literally) to get them. :)
PS: The colorful stripes top is actually a dress. I just folded it a little and tucked the rest in, which is why my shorts look a little poofy.
