Sleep deprived with a chance of tomboy.

One of my infamous recounts while growing up was never being given the chance to wear something that I really wanted. I was made to believe that I can only wear big & loose shirts to hide what skinny arms I have..

In the realization that this was, by far, one of the stupidest mistakes in my life. I can only shake my head in dismay as I shrug the snippets of a skinny tweener back then who could be mistaken as a hanger, a twig (feel free to let your imaginatiom run wild!).

Not that my body type has improved much since then, but I'm certain that (somehow) my confidence did.. At this point, I've already conceded tp the fact that my body has already reached its utmost potential (kidding. Universe, please do everything in your to make me sexy.).

Yet, I'm more than glad that I'm less scared now. To venture a little bit out of my comfort zone, to experiment little by little.

So that at least, if I decide on channeling something tomboy-ish, it would mainly be because of an arbitrary choice..

The flowers bloom in summer, whilst my heart remains tamed..

As the heat takes its toll here on earth, I make another attempt to reunite with my pen & paper. I carefully scan my mental closet of things that are writing-worthy. I do for a few minutes, or so, but to no avail. I'm searching for sadness, which (usually) gives me the drive to write, but I found none.

Then, I smile..

This so-so state (as I claim it to be) has been the finest I've had in years, so to speak. I'm finally getting the hang of reserving emotions, & being overly protective of myself (or whatever's left of me).

So despite the things temptations summer has to offer: summer flings, rekindling of sparks.. I'd have to turn them down for now. I'm having the time of my life swimming at the sea of peace & calm with none other than, me.. :)
