Being Stargirl





“Live today."









"Yes. Live today. Not yesterday. Not tomorrow. Just today. Inhabit your moments. Don't rent them out to tomorrow. Do you know what you're doing when you spend a moment wondering how things are going to turn out with Perry?"






"What am I doing?"







"You're cheating yourself out of today. Today is calling to you, trying to get your attention, but you're stuck on tomorrow, and today trickles away like water down a drain. You wake up the next morning and that today that you wasted is gone forever. It's now yesterday. Some of those moments may have had wonderful things in store for you, but now you'll never know.”





Beautiful lines from one of my all-time favorite young adult novels, Love Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli. I love Stargirl Caraway! She is carefree yet compassionate, eccentric but thoughtful. I think she's my epitome of a "hippie at heart". I want to go back to this Stargirl self I feel I was back in high school. Here's a cute checklist I got from this site on how to "Become a Stargirl":


Of course I won't take all these literally! My "personal project" is to a) Not be too hard on myself, b) Bring back old passions, c) Continue making people happy. :)

Stars Sweater - ukay find!
Black Jeans - Human Jeans
Loafers - Gold Dot
Watch - Aldo
Matte Satchel - MISSY BAGS
Studded iPod Case - Bumble Shop
Hat, Necklace and Bracelet - Anagon




...And of course, live today! 


Love and Love and Love Again, 
Stargirl

  2. I've read Stargirl (the prequel to Love, Stargirl) a few months ago and I also liked her very hippie views at sobrang compassionate niya. Whenever I feel crappy or when I see a person feels crappy, I just think "What would Stargirl do?".. :)

  3. No Starboy? I like the Become A Stargirl tips. I recently got this "The Happiness Project" book and there's a guide on how to Start your own Happiness Project in it. Parang similar lang no? I might do it though and perhaps share it with you? Let's be happy! Hehe.
