Just One Of Those Days

 
I have no excuse for my long absence. Oh wait, I have. Fairy Tail. I have fallen in love with fictional characters. Again. I'm a shrew. 

Just a few photos of today's outfit. I was wondering why these photos don't have the same lighting quality as my previous ones. And then I realized it was because of the surprising loss of leaves of the trees beside this area. Meh.

Thanks you guys for dropping by my blog and leaving me lovely comments. I'll definitely find time this weekend to catch up on your blogs.

27

When I was 17, someone told me no guy would make the mistake of courting me because I was too child-like. I couldn't blame him, really. I was already in college but I was still hung up on anime, on enshrining my fandoms and obsessions. Looking back, I guess that was just his polite way of saying I have the sex appeal of an ant.

Now that I'm 27, wiser, a bit jaded, emotionally seasoned, I'm still hung up on anime and on enshrining my fandoms and obsessions. I have absolutely zero regrets. Zero.

So to that person who reduced my self-esteem to smithereens when I was 17, screw you. Someone did fall in love with me in all my geeky, child-like, obsessive glory.

Take it from a girl who just turned a year older. Never lose your child-like quality. That's going to cushion you from the harshness of this world. Wear it like a badge of pride. 

Never be in a hurry to grow up. Because when you get old, you'll wonder why you haven't savored every moment of your youth.

Never let anyone influence you in becoming a person you don't want to be, unless you want to impress everyone but yourself.

As much as I make a joke out of hating getting older, I actually revel in it. I mean, the freedom! There's no equal to it. I get to decide what I want to do with my life, which path I will take, which people I want to hang out with. I get to have a voice that people listen to. But the best part about it is that I have developed a sense of conviction. 

I'm so grateful for another shot at living life. I'm still growing emotionally, mentally and spiritually (I lost all hope of physical growth) and I know, in the future, I'm going to make follies that will make me want to mentally kick my shins. But God, how I look forward to it!
