I believe that a person's individuality is something that we should all accept and respect as it is what makes a person beautiful in his or her own way. I, myself, have struggled before into trying to fit in because I thought that by being like everyone else, I would be loved and accepted the way I wanted to be loved and accepted; but as it turns out, trying to fit in will leave this empty space in your heart - the desire to let yourself free and let yourself be heard but you cannot out of fear of being deemed as an outcast. No one, intentionally, wants to be an outcast. Everyone wants to belong, to be loved and to be accepted and so we look for ways to erase that uniqueness in us just because the "society" says they cannot accept it.

As most of you might have known, I had my hair colored AGAIN. Actually, my plan was to just have my roots retouched and get the ends of my hair in a richer red color but it actually turns out to be a more, hmm... flashy kind of red which, apparently, isn't the kind my work would approve of. Initially I was like, "WTF happened?!" But after a few minutes, I smiled and told myself, "I think I kind of love it." However, again, my work might not be very approving of it so when I'm at work I usually tie it in a bun; and aside from that, the bleaching and coloring kind of made my hair brittle and damaged. Oh dear.

Call time for our third day was at 4:00 in the morning because we needed to go Vigan coming all the from Saud (Pagudpod). So I woke up at 3:00 AM and just washed up (I already took a bath the night before so don't judge me, K?) and decided to just sleep while we were in the van. Sorry Kuya Cesar, your passengers will be sleeping for a few more hours.

Officially, this is our second day in Ilocos.
Although our official call time was at 6:00 AM, I woke up two hours earlier just because I already got used to waking up at 4:00 in the morning. Upon waking up, I immediately took my meds (need to take it 30 minutes before breakfast), washed up and prepared. I went out of our room and smelled FOOD! Good food! The owner of the homestay prepared rice, egg and Vigan longganisa. And while she was cooking I told her about how I loved our dinner last night and she told me that she used to cook for the Marcoses. That explains ate's mad cooking skills!

Someone once told me that she admired how I handled the romantic aspect of my life. But to tell you all quite frankly, there is no big secret as to how I gracefully date, fall in love, leave, or get my heart broken. Experience was, actually, the best teacher I have ever had.
When people get their hearts broken, some would fall into that seemingly endless pit of loneliness, blaming the world, blaming their own selves, and even wanting to just disappear into thin air. If you have seen the movie "That Thing Called Tadhana," you would know what EXACTLY I mean. Big surprise, I have also had my fair shares of being depressed, wondering what went wrong, wishing he would be back; but at the end of the day, I just came upon the realization that my world should never revolve around the thought of having and maintaining a romantic relationship with someone; and that is how I managed to become this strong girl I am today.

Most of us splurged during the Christmas season (for me it was AFTER Christmas, actually) but what happens next? It's already February and some of us crave for a new pair of shoes or maybe a red dress to wear for your date with "him" on Valentine's Day. Whatever the reason is, I am pretty sure some of you have that problem of over spending during the Holiday season and ending up with an empty wallet and a pocket full of just ten cents.
