When In Doubt, Blog


























Saturdays are sacred. No matter how busy life gets or how tedious things become, Myk and I always make it a point to go out, catch a movie, pig out and take photos. But the best thing about Saturdays is that I get to have long conversations with Myk, conversations that always have a tinge of emotional unloading, whining and self-realizations. Myk's not just my boyfriend and best friend sometimes. He's also my shrink, albeit a cost-free one. 





















































I was in a contemplative mood earlier and asked Myk why I'm such a push-over sometimes. Or why I make it a point to ask people how they are, if they're feeling okay or if they need someone to talk to but seldom gets it in return. How, in retrospect, I'm seldom asked how I'm feeling, if everything's going on smoothly in my life or if there's any emotional turmoil I'm going through. I wonder why I have acquired the habit of putting everything and everyone above my own feelings just because I don't like to bother people with my own problems.

Sometimes, I wonder if it's my own doing, making myself look cheerful and putting on a brave face all the time that people don't feel the need to offer their shoulder to cry on.



Who I am now is the complete antithesis of who I was 10 years ago. The strain of responsibility and the culture shock of adulthood made me a different person. I'm just thankful I have people like Myk around me who keeps me tethered to my sanity and propels me forward, thankful that no matter how people come and go in my life sometimes, how I become dispensable to others, there are always people who remain constant. 




Sudden photo of a goat just to stop me from tearing up while writing this. lol! A couple of baby goats, I believe they're called kids, kept leaping at us while taking photos, that for a moment I thought they were feral. lol! Do goats even become feral?

Sorry for the melodrama. Life has been hectic and taxing these days that I refuse to allow this blog to be boxed into the 'fashion blogging only' category. A girl needs an outlet for her endless supply of feels, you know.

But anyway, moving on...

Donned yet again another preppy ensemble. I hope you're not bored with it yet because I certainly haven't exhausted my preppy get-ups, meaning there's more to come. And I got myself a new leather rucksack. Nothing like thrifting to keep my spirit up. 

So what have you guys been up to? If you feel like ranting about your own emotional woes, I have a deep threshold for that. I'll be your agony aunt!

  2. I'm so glad to hear that you have such a wonderful boyfriend/best friend in your life to get you through these things. Life will always be a bit taxing so just having that constant person there in your life is an absolute blessing. Putting on a brave face isn't always a bad thing either, I think it shows and takes a lot of inner strength, but also know that you don't always have to hold things in especially with (what sounds like) someone so special in your life to listen to you and love you regardless :)
    That aside, you look adorable; I love the preppy style you've been sporting lately!! Really suits you :)

  5. your photos always look amazing! and Saturday is my special day with my bf as well. Similarly my boyfriend has also changed me for the better. Ever since I was little I have never expressed my problems and kept everything bottled up? like you I never wanted to bother other people with my issues, and it always seemed like no one even cared anyway. thank goodness for quality boyfriends to be by our side for all those times we need them! :)

    1. Thanks Izzy! And so nice that you share my sentiments. Even the most depressing days can be brightened up by simply calling the boyfriend and unloading. And since they're guys, they have a different perspective about things so it's nice to have a fresh point of view when things start to weigh you down. :)
