It’s tough when you’re given distinctions as to what you want to do and what you have to do.

You want to drive, you want to get out of here and flee; you want to trek the world and see life unfiltered. You have to study and get a distinguished high-paying job; you have to follow the norms of society. You want to follow your ideals and desires but you have to fend for yourself. You want to do all that crap but you have to be fucking practical, man.

Distinctions are meant to simplify but ultimately complicate. You want life to come with a handy manual but you have to deal without it.

Tomorrow marks the first day of the last term of my college life.

Locus of Control

It’s one of those days where I feel so small; smaller than usual. Everything I do is so trivial. Writing chemical reactions, discussing the Bible, objectifying people’s behaviors… In the end, what good will this do for me

I want to leave, explore, get lost, find my way. I want an exciting life. I want to travel and meet strangers with completely different lives. I want to end these chapters of my life where I come to a dead end. I want to move on and make my life worthwhile.

Uncertainty is a part of life but it doesn’t have to take control. I am the pioneer of how I lead my life, and I need to escape this mental jail I keep myself in. My locus of control is unknown but that shouldn’t stop me from trying. What will be, will be; I will take life by the reins and I will find my way. I want to, at least.

Baby Steps

So here are some things I thought I would and could never do: Hike up a mountain with a bag about a third of my weight, camp overnight and make conversation with strangers, and pee behind a bush and in front of a horse!

Sometimes all you have to do is ask!

This post is going to sound very materialistic but please I am very emotionally sensitive these days. See you soon, redness.

Mind Games

I went to the Mind Museum last Saturday with my friend and omg I love interactive museums! It’s smaller than I thought it would be but still very fun!

My photos don’t give it justice, sorry. I didn’t bring my long lens with me. Haha

Round the Corner

My friend wanted to go to Cubao X with me the other week. Being familiar enough with Cubao, I brought her. I’d been there only about twice before, but both times were pretty boring since everything was closed and I wasn’t with friends (ie my family). I didn’t know photos weren’t allowed so I was only able to take a few shots!

I was just disappointed that Heima was having an on-going photoshoot because I wanted to inquire about their bikes. :(

The weather has been against my choice of clothing. Hmph, I don’t wanna stop wearing summer clothes!!!
Also, look! I am tan. No, I didn’t go to the beach. That’s my normal skin color. And I am a-okay with that. It’s really frustrating to see all those ads about skin whitening — it’s unnatural and it’s so wrong. Why should I feel bad about what color I am? Why should I want to change the way I am? I was born that way because of some genetic mumbo jumbo that went on when my parents made me. Wanting to be different would mean wanting to have had a different set of parents, and no, I would not have wanted a different set of parents. I am happy and thankful for how I look and the way I live, and I wish other people were too.
