A Matter of Perspective :)
"A wise man once sat in an audience and cracked a joke, everybody laughs like crazy. After a moment he cracked the same joke again, less people laughed this time. He cracked the same joke over and over again. When there was no laughter in the crowd, he smiled and said: "You can't laugh over the same joke over and over again, then why do you keep crying over the same thing over and over again?" "
I hate counting days..
...but I can't help it!!! Ako yung tipong, wow one month na tong emo-mode ko a, or wow 2 days nakong masaya. :P I don't know how I get by, and I am actually feeling better already (although the praning-sky in me keeps on telling me, wag kang kampante day!). Here are some "happenings" the past days that kept me on my toes:
Spoiled by Watsons:
Went on a shopping spree on a rainy Wednesday morning in Watsons Mega Mall for their bloggers event. Have you joined my Price is Right Watsons Contest?
On my way there, I actually had a 30-minute stop-over in Metropolis Alabang because my flats incidentally got soaked in a puddle (gusto ko lang mag mura, ano). Bought a pair of Advan cheap plastic boots in white, para feeling tres chic. Hehe. I loved it! I went out of Metropolis braver, and stepped on puddles ng yabang-mode (haha).
My feeling Plueys:
I had to remove it though when I reached Megamall for Watsons. :P Ang weird ng feeling na ikaw lang naka-botas sa mall, hehe.
After Watsons, the team invited me for lunch, and even treated me to Kenny Rogers (sweet!). They also offered a ride hanggang Makati so I don't need to ride a cab from Ortigas all the way to La Salle (my supposed next destination).
The traffic was really bad though, maybe because of the biglaang-bagyo. I was stuck in Waltermart Makati's taxi stand na surprisingly walang dumadaang cabs, plus I was down with the flu, hopeless, and soaked...I was on the verge of tears, when my Daddykins came to the rescue!!! :) <3
I dropped off ALL my heavy bags in dad's car, including the clogs I wore that morning (excess baggage kung excess baggage!). Then off I went to La Salle, where I was already 1 hour late for the fashion show for my accessories. :/ Clarisse of DLSU was sooo kind though, so I was still able to hand her my items. :) Met with Krissy in DLSU Mcdo, where we settled first. Then I ate the biggest-sized fries and iced tea without tasting them--I knew I was stress-eating again! Idaan sa kain! Haha!
Went to the bonggang SM Accessories event that night, which I blogged about in Fashion Compass! :)
Honestly, in between all the not-so-funny bloopers and hassles, I was supposed to be distracted from my "loneliness and depression", but the duo kept on nagging me every chance they've got (Liz Gilbert mode, hehe). Like during my quiet yet looong rainy ride to Makati, or when I was sitting still (and sniffing from colds) in Mcdo to calm my nerves. Kainiz lang because then I have to "call a friend" (in my case, text all possible friendsss) just to have people to talk with, or para mabigyan lang ako ng piece of advice. Matuktukan ba ang ulo, haha!
Instead of comforting words though, I got this from one of them =P - "Baket porket umuulan at traffic malulungkot ka na?"
Medyo masakit basahin, pero I know the intention of this friend isn't bad, but for me to just, you know, suck it all in. She wants me to be stronger, and not let any external things easily ruin my day.
Take it from Barney Stinson:
Infairview naman, I've been waking up fairly brighter day by day, which is good news. I also get out of bed ng almost 12 noon na, which is also "me during the better days"--so ibig sabihin good sign din to (hehe). More improvements everyday! All a matter of perspective!
Leaving you with words from Anagon at 23 years old. Read this in a blog entry written the day I turned 23 :) Ang talino kong bata, bat ako tumatanda ng paurong? Hahaha!
