Want a piece of (advice from) me?!

Have you seen this photo yet? Probably in Facebook, yes? Or in 9gag.com, right? I saw this in 9gag.com, and I am sharing this picture to all of you because this picture is the perfect illustration of what I think is one of life’s greatest irony, and that is when you seek for an advice from your friends.

 

I have plenty of friends, but I only seek advice/recommendations from few friends that I really trust. And, whenever I ask advice from them, I always analyze (and over-analyze) the pieces of advice that they give to me. I usually consider their past experiences, or the lack of it. From there, I came to a conclusion that there is no perfect piece of advice, only effective ones. Because, your friends, or even your family, may not have walked in the path where you’re in right now, hence, you cannot expect them to feel whatever you’re feeling right now. More so, you cannot expect them to give all the right words for you whenever you need one. So don’t go whining around the room screaming “Nobody understands me!!” (Haha. Just kidding. You can do whatever you want). :)

 

On a more serious note, your friends and your family will probably give you some pieces of advice in their best form. Those pieces of advice may never be perfect, but if it is somewhat effective, then it is probably the right piece of advice for you to follow. The bottomline is if you have questions about why your life is suddenly in a different path, you cannot expect other people to give you the perfect answers to your question. It is only you who answer your so-called “life questions”.

 

So, how about you? When was the last time you gave an advice? Did they heed your advice? Or not?

When was the last time you asked for an advice? Was it good? Tell us something about it! :)

My life lately. (May 2015)

Hello everyone! :) It’s me again! :)

I am currently enjoying my summer break, since I was forced not to take summer classes this year. Haha. So I’m stuck here in our house. I finally have time to read novels and watch movies and TV series! I don’t usually have time for those things because I am always preoccupied. Sucks.

Also, I booked and planned a trip for me! Yay! Actually, that primary reason why I planned this trip is because I need to visit my family’s roots. I kinda miss travelling and being on the road again, actually. :) YAY!

Oh, by the way, you may want to visit this awesome online shop! :) You can find cool stuff in a very affordable price! :) Please follow them on Instagram here: SO GORGEOUS SHOP.

 

So, how about you? How do you usually spend your free time during your summer break? C’mon! Share it with us! :)

Shoes, anyone?

 

 

Every girl deserves a really nice shoes, agree?

As I said before, being in grad school is really hard. One of the least spoken problems that “grad school girls” have is their wardrobe. We all want to look stylish without compromising  comfort, of course. That’s why I think I need to make a blog post about shoes. Now, why shoes? Because once you have a pair of shoes that looks and fits perfect on you, your whole outfit will look really different (in a good way, of course). Your choice for the shoes that you will wear will either make or break your outfit.

 

So, here’s some of my picks for shoes:

Eyes on the prize

When was the last time you have been so obsessed with something, you just can’t stop thinking about it?

When was the last time you worked hard for that thing you were so obsessed with?

When was the last time you felt overjoyed because you were able to achieve something you were once obsessed with?

 

Obsession, be it to a thing, position, person, or status, gives us strength to go further than our limits. It gives us courage to finish what we should do. Obsession is either a good thing or a bad thing, it may strengthen us or it may kill us.

 

I was once obsessed with one thing, and that is to be the best in the career that I chose. I love what I am doing and there is no way that I am going to this kind of obsession. But then, this “career path” that I chose is taking the best out of me. I am slowly gaining weight, I do not eat healthy foods anymore, I do not have time to exercise, I do not have time to relax, I do not see my friends and my family that much anymore. I feel like I am missing a lot in my life right now, and that makes me sad.

 

Today, I was able to find time to have a day for my self. I was able to realize how my obsession was able to make me bolder and more courageous unlike before. But then, I have to sacrifice. I have to continue sacrificing some things that I want to do for the sake of practicing the profession that I chose. Oh well, you know what they say, one must suffer now, than suffer later. :)

 

I am tired. I am stressed. I am overwhelmed. I am hurting. But the last thing that I will do is to quit. My eyes will always be on the prize.
