I find it hard to sleep tonight. I’ve been watching a series of the most famous and expensive paintings in the world on YouTube but I still couldn’t get sleepy. Well, then I opened the photo gallery on my phone and an idea came up in my mind. Why don’t I save all the photos which represent little moments in my life and put them together in a collection because basically our lives are made up of million of moments. Some of them are remembered but some are forgotten. That’d be fantastic if one day, when I get older and more mature and accidentally browse a photo album with all the little photos and their cute unique captions, who would say that I couldn’t get overjoyed or possibly burst into tears as I would feel like I just find a piece of my life that is believed to be lost but then found again.
So I call it the “Moments of my life” project. And temporarily, this blog will be the place where I store my collection 🙂 My collection will be here until I find a better place for it. Does it sound very dumb?? Well, who gives a f***??? LOL.
Hmm, I’ll start with a photo which I took a couple of week ago at my uni. My group was meeting in a chill-out room to discuss about our seminar for one of the papers and while I was absentmindedly listening to a friend’s rehearsal, I looked up and realized that spring had come and everything seemed to bloom and express their beauties and freshness. I love trees and green and blue sky and fresh air and everything that comes from nature. And honestly, I was amazed and speechless in that moment I saw the scene. It was simply beautiful and gorgeous. It was like I went through all the dark gloomy days with storms and rains just to see this moment of beauty. And it was worth it!
My birthday. It was on a Sunday. October 13th. I went out the night before with my cousin and her new friend. We went to a bar, had a couple of drinks then they drove me home after that. I didn’t get any excited or happy at all as I always felt like it wasn’t right that I was turning 22. I was quite upset actually. Ahhhh it’s so weird. There was nothing to be upset about but I just felt like being 21 forever and I was paranoid that once I got to the age of 22 then it’ll take me something like a blink then I’ll turn 30. That’s why I was terrified. I also was terrified partly because I thought of myself as a girl who has nothing in her hand: no good job, an incomplete education (actually it’s still in progress), no boyfriend, no close family, etc. but then I comforted myself that I’m on my way to all the good things and I’m trying my best to achieve what I want in my life. No pain, no gain.
So, back to the story of my birthday, I was still working on that day even though it was a Sunday and especially it was my birthday. No one seemed to notice or know about it. I wasn’t so sad because I had been working there for only about 2 months and my workmates didn’t know me so well because I only did 1-2 days a week. It was understandable though. And then, at the end of the day, when I was about to close the studio and go home, there was a cute boy who worked as a receptionist in the hotel where I worked, walking into the studio and started to talk to me. He was sweet and funny. I thought he was a bit gay but that was absolutely fine. I love gay people. They’re always sweeties. We had a nice conversation and he told me that he saw me a couple of times before but we hadn’t had any chance to introduce ourselves to each other officially so this might be a good opportunity. And I told him that it was my birthday today and suddenly he walked away and came back after few minutes with a small box and a bow on the top. “Here’s a little present for ya!!”. I was so surprised and could only say thank to him before he walked out of the door again. That night, when I got home exhausted with my sore feet after a long walk, I received a lot of birthday wishes both on my Facebook wall and my phone messages. My dad called me when I was on the bus home but my battery went flat so I couldn’t talk to him, which was quite a shame! Anyway, I’m now 22 and I understand that I can’t be 21 forever, which also means I need to grow up and stop behaving in a childlike way. I need to be more mature and responsible too. Ok, I’m still learning and I hope I’ll be a bright student 😀 At the end of the day, there are always people who love me and care for me. I’ll never be alone. Never.
Sometimes I think I can go absolutely crazy with all the ideas in my head that always wait for the right moments to explode and I feel quite cool about it. I mean I’m proud to say I’m not a boring one. Ok I could be crazy, I could be creative, I could be different but no, I hate being boring. And because I hate being a boring person, I just try not to be one. I went out shopping with Jess yesterday and I found this wig in one of the hair shop then I decided to buy it because it was cheap and look at it, it was impressive. I wore it right away and people kept looking at me like they never saw an Asian girl with long curly frizzy hairstyle and bright lips before. I called it “My Bohemian style”. OMG, I was deeply in love with the look. I felt like I could be a rockstar or biker or a backpacker with a careless nomadic life. I don’t care whether people like it or find it attractive. I love this look and that’s enough!!!
This week, I’ve been staying at home all day doing nothing worthwhile but watching some Korean dramas, eating chocolate and doing some reading. I went swimming today and it was the first time after a long time I hadn’t gone swimming. It was a nice experience, a little bit awkward though. I didn’t have a proper swimming suit and I did wear an old bikini that my cousin gave me last year and there was a woman who kept staring at me as if I was a kind of alien or something like that. Whatever! But I think I need to purchase a new swimming suit and some colorful bikinis too in case I go swimming in the sea, or go sunbathing! 😛
Tonight, I turned on the lava lamp on my makeup table because every time I do so, it magically cheers me up a lot.
A lava lamp.
A few perfume bottles.
And I suddenly got lost in the wonderland.
In my very own room.
So one more photo and this will be the last one of today. I’ll be brief. It’s just a picture from Tumblr. I find it quite right so I want to put it in here. Good night!!! Love ya muahhhhh xx
