Wildfire x Blo


Over the time I have been idle, plenty of things happened (ie. postponement of a certain CET ngh, natural beauty, never-ending continuation of the stress senior year brings about, etc..). Despite my perpetual complaints regarding this school year, I cannot deny that so far, it has been the best. I can't exactly explain why. But to all underclassmen, I swear, it's the best. 

This post also has a relation to one of my extra cirriculars, wherein I had to find sponsors. I stumbled upon Blo Blow Dry Bar after many of my friends recommended the pseudo-salon itself. After I had contacted them, they were extremely kind to have given me a complimentary "Blow Out" since I have never tried Blo.. 'til that day. So to everyone, I highly recommend this store. All of them are extremely friendly and they definitely shape themselves to cater to your needs.

You can buy a Gift Certificate worth 500pesos for Php250.00! Just contact me if you're interested! It's worth one "Blow Out" and it is indeed worth it. Hope you all have a great week ahead! Shout out to the lovely Yuki for being super nice and understanding! :)

Hold On We're Going Home



















Currently physically and emotionally drained due to the lack of sleep I've been having. Also, being on a drug holiday (ie. I HAVEN'T BEEN HAVING MY DAILY DOSE OF CAFFEINE) for three days is nothing short of... death. 

Kidding aside, I apologise for not being so active! *shames self* I promise I'll have new photos coming up! In the meantime, here are some of the photos I took in Japan. Yes, I do miss it terribly. Especially the weather, because even if it's the rainy season here, it's so hot! I'm sorry, I can't think of anything else to talk about right now. But anyway, hope you enjoyed the photos and enjoy the song!

Of the night



 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

I'm not a big believer of letting things slide; however, circumstances have brought me to it. You've got to admit, lately, we've all been worrying. We worry about nonsensical things to totally important things, usually about the future. Well, I say, stop. STOP. A good worry here and there is fine, but too much worrying is just a waste of time. If you know in your heart that you've worked your hardest and done your best, then there's nothing else you can do about whatever it is you're worrying about. You've got to leave it up to Him, or fate, if you may.

We all know quote "Things happen for a reason". Pessimists would probably say, it just means something you didn't want to happen happened (You've Got Mail reference heh). Optimists would probably say, there is no point in not dismissing the negativity of a certain event- it would only bring out more negativity. Realists would probably say a mix of the two, it happened, but there's nothing you can do about it, but move forward. I'd have to agree with the realists. The past is the past, we either run from it, or learn from it, right? (Lion King reference hello)

Basically what I'm trying to say is, you've got to stop worrying. Don't worry about the past, it's behind us. Don't worry about the future, if you've done your part. Don't worry about today- live it. Don't waste your time worrying or being sad. Forget anything and everything that makes you sad, and do anything and everything to make you happy. Right now, we are, in fact, dying. But we can either choose to spend every waking moment happy or sad. Because towards the end, we just wish we wouldn't regret anything.

Japan Video Diary


Japan is the type of place that couldn't be explained, but only appreciated through those little pictures and videos. So here's a compilation of my trip! Hope you enjoy!

Sa / Difference



As you first enter Japan, you'd think it would be this meek, serene place wherein there isn't much rebellion. Well, it's true. Though the showcase of their individuality is quite impressive (fashion-wise), the serenity of this not-so-tiny community causes me to wonder what other idiosyncrasies they have, or if they even have any. Despite their eccentric fashion taste, I still wonder how they always seem so stiff. They always stick by the rules, and I wonder if they're truly happy. They seem too quiet to ever be elated. But maybe, they don't need to be boisterous to be cheerful. Maybe, they're just satisfied and contented with their diminutive life, which is significant to their society. They all know they're a part of a whole; of something much bigger than just themselves and everything revolving around them. That, itself, is quite fulfilling and gratifying enough. 

Then, I wonder if I'm happy. Am I happy because I have to be, or am I happy because I am? Happiness is different from contentment and vice verse; however, happiness can only be achieved if one is content. How to achieve contentment? It's all in your mindset and your perspective. If you choose to believe that every bad thing would become something positive, and if you believe that everything will get better, you'll know it's not the end and you'll keep going. You'll keep striving to do better, because you can't dwell on every negative thing that comes your way or you might just end up stuck- unable to do anything worthwhile. Residing in the past and filling yourself up with regret is useless and self-destructive. A second you use being sad is a second that could've been used to be happy and productive.

I don't know what exactly came over me to write such a post. But I think I can mostly thank the graffiti in the first photo. I didn't know what "Sa" was so I searched it and it meant difference. It was as if it were telling me to make a difference. I'm different and I must make use of it to help others find their own difference- their own difference. With our own different reasons, we can become differently happy as one. But my guess to achieve pure happiness is purely theoretical and that kind of happiness can only happen by starting with yourself.
