But if my life is for rent and I don't learn to buy..

wearing vintage puff sleeve blazer, RenegadeLovers bandage skirt, SoulePhenomenon wedges

I came here with some expectations, and looking for something I now believe I wont find here.. why my brain is always like soup, I don't know.. perhaps its the curse of an eternal dreamer.

As a kid, I have always excelled in arts, but I was always told, to pick a different kind of future, so that i wouldn't end up a starving artist.. I must have been about 9 when I was told that, and I never forgot it, forever unsure about my creative talents and always worried about I will survive on it. Such things should never be told to a child, and while now, more than 10 years later, I know that we should all just follow our hearts and do what we love, but sometimes I'm not sure I believe it, still. Life is hard enough the way it is, why do we have to pick a career? I just want to do everything, and nothing.. why do they not teach that in school, because really, they should.

In an effort to distract myself, I finally utilized a very Vivienne Westwood-like piece in the obscure section of my wardrobe.. its half corset, half blazer and has the most ridic monster sleeves.. paired with my wedges and a bandage skirt pretty much the best outfit to lounge around the house in..

Contemplating a new hair color - roots are starting to annoy me.

hindi parin ako maka get over the shoes! ganda! ^^

and yeah... i share the same sentiment but i took the different route. i always loved the arts since i was young but was told not to... now i'm studying computer science and feeling stuck.

1. your new banner is ahmazing!

2. i feel ya on the eternal dreamer curse.... sometimes i wish i was born a mathematician so i wouldn't have to deal with finding a career in the arts. BUT! it's what makes us truly content, right? so we must keep pressing on.

3. fucking rad shoes. :)
