Neon on Liberation

Photos by Kaye

I am so glad that I have surpassed the dark days of my life. I never thought that I would endure another heartbreak. With that in mind, I held onto something broken, not knowing that gripping on it still would cause me more & more pain. Admittedly, I was too scared to be alone. I was with somebody, I was happy somehow, but then again, not quite. 

I had to let go of the chickenshit in me. Or he had to let go of the chickenshit in me. Either way, it was a mutual decision. Which should've been done eons ago. It stung, though. I tell you. But then, I've never felt liberated. Maybe he does feel the same way, too.

Oh well. At least now, I can embody the colors that I wear.. And not having to conceal my emotions behind 'em..

Running Around in Heels.. And a Bonnet

Photo by Tin

The title couldn't have gotten more literal. Life lately had been way too crazy and busy, but I'm not complaining. I didn't want to bore you with the details, but it just excites me. I'm still feeling the butterflies in my stomach. Apparently, in exchange of the recent heartbreak were sleep deprivation, leg cramping, and a whole new experience. And I guess these things suffice for comforting my grieving heart.  

Mickey Mouse Shirt - Borrowed
Jeans - Gift
Booties - Thrifted

What's been up..

This was what life had been lately. Crazy. Busy. Oh-so-tiring. and F U N.

Yeah baby!! :)

Version Upgrade

Age is but a number. Always was, always will be. When the time comes that we are old & gray, being "old" per se shouldn't be our main concern. No, not at all. I guess that when we reach THAT point, looking back should make us smile. The stupid things, the crazy friends, the love we had & lost.. Everything. And more importantly, by that time, we will realize who among the people who rode the rollercoaster with us have stayed for another ride-all-you-can round.

Cheers to big 3-0s, to gender defying love, to overflowing booze, to nerve wracking videoke nights (and days), and to friendship. Happy birthday (again), Bry! (and thanks again for holding my concert on your special day. LOL)
