19 Things Only Women With A Low Maintenance Fashion Sense Understand

Thought Catalog

1. You have three hairstyles: down, ponytail, and bun.

2. You have one pair of shoes that you wear with 95% of your wardrobe.

3. Most of your outfits are just some combination of t-shirts and jeans.

4. This makes getting ready massively easy. What are you going to wear? Throw on the first pair of jeans and t-shirt you can find. Put on aforementioned shoes. Boom. Done.

5. Sundresses are also great because they look like you put more effort into getting ready, but you definitely didn’t.

6. You have to be very clear with your hairstylist that you need a cut that’s easy to maintain, because you’re not about that life. Your idea of styling your hair is making sure the part is nice, and if you’re feeling fancy, throwing a clip or headband up there.

7. You find make up a little terrifying. You understand the basics…

To The Women Whose Lives Are Not Love Stories

Thought Catalog

eddierioscreativeeddierioscreative

Here’s to the women whose lives are not love stories. To those who never expected to find happily-ever-after on their wedding day or the moment their eyes locked with somebody else’s across a crowded café. To the girls who grew up measuring success based on what they achieved for themselves – what they worked through, what they accomplished and what they did not let diminish them along the way.

“Here’s to the damsels who pulled themselves out of distress and to the heroines who didn’t wait around to be saved.”

Here is to women who grew up searching for the dreams that they wanted to realize and the people they wanted to become, not just the man who would sweep them away from the tragedy of their mundane existence. To the women who hoped that their lives would be thrillers, adventure novels, comedies and occasionally pornos but never predominantly…

What It Means To Date A Girl Without A Father

It will not seem different at first. You will do the things all new couples do: joke and share silly stories. Laugh louder than you ever anticipated. Laugh harder. You get drunk off fingertips and innocent touches, like when she lingers on your shoulder for just a beat longer. She kisses you like you are the first person she has ever kissed, and it will keep you up at night, in the best way possible. Everything is fun and exciting. She will do whatever she can to make sure it is fun. She needs it to be fun. Exciting. Light. She knows darkness already too well.

She will be careful in her words. You notice she never says “parents” and looks away when someone mentions their father. You are consumed with a strange, irrational guilt when you answer a phone call from your dad. It feels…

20 Things You Should Know About Dating An Independent Girl

Thought Catalog

1. We need alone time. A little each day and more than a little on other days. It doesn’t mean we’ve lost interest in you.

2. We don’t mind if you don’t call or text us every second. We like it. We won’t be contacting you either. That said, if you’re late, don’t keep us guessing as to when you’ll show up as we’ll make other plans.

3. We can clean up our own messes. We’re not waiting around for you to fix our problems.

4. We are perfectly fine doing chores, running errands, and exercising by ourselves. If you want to join us, we’re glad to have you along, but don’t talk to us while we’re in the zone.

5. We sign up and attend charity events, races, and cultural exhibits on our own. We don’t need a date to feel comfortable at these things. Set us loose in…

Movie x LUDO with Kakaibatch

Breaking the barriers of our mundane life has always been fun. Being able to go beyond our desk has always been exciting. We all have been looking forward to the day where we can all hit the F5 button of our academic life so we can start anew. Then it comes!

Just last Wednesday, we were able to go to this heavenly board game bar, LUDO. Everyone (or maybe just me) was looking forward to go there since forever. The place was introduced to us by friends from school too.

The place opens at 4PM so we had to kill time for about 4 hours that we have decided to watch…

On our way out of the mall, we saw GROOT! (What a side story. I don’t really know how to blog so, whatever).
Groot

Going back to the original blog post, where was I? Oh wait! So we arrived there a little too early. Excitement, if that’s the term you want to say. The place opened at around 5 already since they still had stuff to fix inside. There were also a few people who were waiting for the bar to open, and came in early just like us.

Check the place out and be amazed! I drowned inside. I’m pretty sure that you will do too! Just look at all those board games you could play!!!

Ludo02

Upon entering this heavenly place, we immediately picked out NEW games to try as we were already familiar to some since they were introduced to us via DIY! HAHAHA.
Ludo01LUDOOOOOFood was also great! (sorry no photo) and let me tell you that they don’t have free wi-fi. I don’t really mind since you can’t really have fun while always checking your phone 24/7. The only use of your phone is for photo-taking. But I didn’t have that much photo since I forgot my phone at home. boo-hoo-hoo!Ludo03

Anyway, here are more photos (excuse the group selfies). I’m sorry but we’re just trying to make memories.

Awkward

I remember the line from Will.i.am & Britney’s song saying “Just scream and shout and let it all out.” At some point in our lives we’re gonna do this for fun or for really just blurting how we really feel. And in my case I think I just spat it all out. I didn’t scream though. I kept myself composed and cool.

It was our block’s or rather batch’s Christmas party at one of my friend’s house. And as expected, booze was around. thank you. The person I was waiting for came in a little late and stuff. Before he got there when people were saying his name, I always get teary eyed and start to half cry. I can’t really explain how or why. It just comes. Then by the moment he arrived, people were all gathered around him, welcoming him. And there I was seated in the corner trying to make myself busy. But I really can’t hold my feelings. I started to sob so I escaped the bunch of people. I sneaked out of the house. I was crying. I was sobbing and I didn’t understand why. I blame my lacrimal glands so much on why they had to act that way.

some of my friends saw me and gathered around me asking me why, and all I could tell them was “I. DONT. KNOW.” Because I didn’t really know. They told me that at some point we had to talk. I did know that. I still need to give his gift because I accidentally reaped his name in the box full of other people’s name. Maybe it was fate.

20131221-105227.jpg

I gave him my gift. As I gave it to him words like “NAIINIS AKO SA’YO”. And then I walked away. He followed. He asked. All I could reply was that I still need to comfort my crying friend. They told me that we should talk and I said later. He went out.

Later that evening, I found myself sitting on the floor just outside the washroom, CRYING. No, sobbing. I was ranting about everything. I broke down too. Like my friend. People gave me a handful of tissue and tried to comfort me asking me stop. And at some point, I did.

Thank you to R-OH that I had all the courage to call him and talk to him. Whatever I said will remain between us. I was crying in front of him. I was weak. He gave me hi hanky to wipe away my tears. Bla bla bla. He was asking me to stand up. He was already giving his hand. I didn’t take it. I stood up and went the other way and sat down again. And then cried again ranting that I miss my grandfather so much. And he said some assuring words that I would never expect him saying. He brought out his hanky again. This time, he was the one who wiped those freakin tears away. I took it. And after that, I ASKED FOR A HUG!!! Would you believe? Everything went cool and felt like nothing awkward happened. I just hope that nothing awkward will ever happen again.

Guidance

The other day, I went to the Guidance Counselor’s office. YES! THE GUIDANCE-FREAKIN-COUNSELORS OFFICE. AND NO. Not because I did anything stupid but there was this Routine Interview kind of thing that WASN’T COMPULSORY but I did go there because I am OBEDIENT (choss!!!).

I went there right after I finished my physiology practicals because I just want to get rid of whatever the fudge they wanted me to do down there. IT WAS A MISTAKE. People there were so positive and they’re all like keeping my hopes up. I’ve had my hopes up for like 17 freakin’ years and I am not doing that this time around. I am smart now. Smart enough to know the things that would make or break my feelings (HEARTS DON’T BREAK, fyi).

I thought psychologists or what-so-ever counselors understand how you feel but actually they’re just like one of those people who give you positive and shitty advises that’s SOOOOO easy for them. I don’t know why I even went there the first place. I won’t go back in there ever again!!! basically because if I follow what they said, it wouldn’t just break my mother’s feelings but mine too. It’s better to keep our relationship this way because if I do any other stupid crap more, it would just drift us further apart. I don’t want to hurt other people’s feelings because I know how bad it would feel. I’ve had my feelings ripped apart a lot of times. Trust me. It hurts like hell.

So anyway, I don’t know why I’m saying this maybe just to let it all out. So yeah.

Mad,
Dasha

My One Week Vacation

I only have one week of summer vacation because we have our summer class! And that one week vacation was the holy week. ): Poor Me. Though it was only one week, I still enjoyed it. We went to the beach, rode the zip line TWICE! and I was able to read a novel! (=

I don’t want to squeeze everything in this one post so I think I’ll make a new entry for a detailed story. Cheers guys!

New Blog Segment!

I’m not really sure though about pursuing this new blog segment but I have a lot of things running in my mind. Most of these are stories that I create or imagine. I really have the urge to write about those, to even compose a song about the lines but I don’t really know how to express it. So I am hoping that as I make this segment in my blog, the things running in my mind would be shared. (; Hope that you’d read it someday. Who knows if it would turn into a book or a novel? HAHAHA
