Its gentle pitter-patter against my bedroom window brings me back to how I used to sneak out of our house just to spend a night with you at the park. You’d be in your usual graphic tee with that snapback worn backwards and a smile across your lips. You’d bring a bag of fries and we’d talk endlessly about random things until the sky shows faint cracks of light and we’d hurriedly head back hoping nobody noticed our little crime.
Adulting is no joke. Whoever said that turning twenty-something meant the era of "having things figured out" was definitely on a daze. Mad Hatter crazy if you ask me! No wonder Peter Pan ran off to Neverland! But don't get me wrong. I like my days productive and I always find myself looking for something to do but then again there are times when stress becomes a wee bit too much to bear.
We were best of friends. Past tense. But before you wrap your mind about this being one of those sad stories, let me tell you otherwise.
I'm a huge fan of thrift shopping and upcycled transformations so whenever I could, I try to DIY my way with clothes. Some of them turn out great while others don't get that lucky. About a year ago, I found these bright pink pair of pants that were too baggy for anyone to bother with. I've been wanting to buy some dungarees at the time but didn't have enough cash. The fix? I sewed up the old pants and turned them into dungarees. And the best part is, the straps are detachable so you can wear it as a pair of shorts too!
The most random and unplanned adventures can sometimes be the greatest and that's regardless of how grand or simple the trip was. A few months back, my uncle and cousin decided to treat the whole family (read "barangay") to a buffet lunch. Coincidentally the tickets they got came with a free entrance to Manila Ocean Park's Sharks and Rays Encounter so we thought, why not bring out our inner child and go visit?
The people closest to my heart know very well that I'm a voracious reader who has a penchant for crying over books. I also have an inclination for stories and doodling. If my blog's name isn't proof enough then I don't know what is. So here's my question for you. What was the last book that made you cry (or at least teary-eyed)? I'm sure some would scream 'The Fault in Our Stars' or 'Me Before You'. Those are absolute tearjerkers but the latest for me would have to be a non-fiction entitled "Imagine This! Doodles to Draw Out Your Life Purpose" by Migs Ramirez.
