Early Onset of Quarter Life Crisis

Warning: Shizz about to get real. Skip along if you’re prone to get nauseated from too much feelings.

I used to think that once I am in my 20’s, life would be different. I would already be living my dreams, picking off the fruit of my works and accomplishments. However, here I am. Still living in the same place I used to live in, spending most of my times sleeping or commuting just like how it used to. To top it off, I’m even working on the kind of job I once dread to ever be doing.

The “Shut up and do it” Agreement

I sign this agreement with the latest photo of myself

I hereby sign this agreement with the latest photo of myself

I’m known to make far too many plans. In fact, i’m great at making plans. But to actually execute it is a whole other story. I’m always, too tired, too distracted, too stressed-out, too broke, too busy –and too tangled in a lot other things but the plan itself. Sounds a lot like an excuse i know, because it actually is.

However, i figured that if i made a written form of said plans (and better yet publishing it), i’m left with no other choice but to do it. So as an attempt to tell myself to just “Shut up and do it” here are some things from my bucket list i’m going to get done by next year.

Refresh

1It feels as if i only turn my head for one second, and the next thing i know it’s already June. I was taking a little break and the next thing i know I haven’t really post anything real on this blog since October. I wast also just a freshman in university with exciting view of life, and before i know it, my thesis is due in several days. It’s thrilling to experience how fast time flies. So, in the midst of writing my final thesis and freshly chopped hair, i would like to say hello. Again. Continue reading

Yeah, that actually happens, or maybe it’s just me spending too much time stalking #AlexanderWangxHM on every social media platforms, until my consciousness gets all blurred out.

Minimal

2My quest for a minimal photo backdrop had finally found an answer. The locals informed that the place “is not actually that interesting”. But fueled with the need to recharge post-Eid relatives visits, i stubbornly insisted to go. And apparently, the place is exactly how i want it to be. Continue reading

How to : Black on black summer

How to : Black on black summer
Despite of the fact that i am tropical born and bred, let’s just pretend that i could distinguish summer to any other seasons and dress differently during that time. The fact is, i don’t.But say i could get into the minds of the fellow sub-tropical people, and know what people would want to wear on brighter days. My best bet would be comfortable lightweight clothes, and sandals. Although i’d suggest them to ditch all the summer cliches, and opt for the all-black look instead. I’d also add some on point accessories like watches and sunglasses in the shade of white, as non-verbal cues for “no Ma’am/Sir, i’m not going to a funeral”. Also, one does not simply walk out the door without a structured, practical sling black to carry all their summer necessities. Aaaand, DONE

An Old Friend

white denim, blue denim jacket, white t-shirt, red lips, defined browsUnattended yet undeniably, is how fashion took parts in people’s life that even innocent-8-years-olds are affected. Not even slightly aware of the reccurence of the grunge trend, or that John Stamos rocked denim jacket when he was the coolest uncle on TV, or even the fact that Britney & JT as a couple once showed up on AMA wearing top to toe denim, and generally any other cause of early 2000’s denim craze, a girl asked her mother for a denim jacket. All she knew that it looked cool and that all her friend seems to own a pair.

and to give this whole narration a little more context : this is the story of yours truly.
