I wish my bangs didn't take forever and a day to grow out because I really want short hair again. My face is pretty petite so when my hair grows out to be a certain length, I think it's quite unflattering, or it could just be me. I honestly don't even know why I need my bangs to be grown out before I chop it all off, but that's the way it's gotta be.
Clear bra straps
Something totally random, but I dislike them. They're supposed to be inconspicuous but they're not. If anything, they're more noticeable than the nude colored ones. Ladies, just wear a strapless bra, or just wear a different outfit.
What would you do if you knew you could not fail?
Someone recently asked me that, and my answer? I know I can't fail at anything I do, so I'm just going to continue what I've been doing, living. It might sound arrogant to most of you, but it's just my mindset. Maybe I won't achieve the goal or the outcome might not be what I was expecting, but that doesn't mean that I have failed. I'll just take the experience, look back at it, learn from it, and grow from it. Easy peasy as 1,2,3.
The glass is always half full.
I know I've blogged about this before in previous posts, but I think this is what sets me apart from a lot of people: my unlimited amounts of optimism and hope. I honestly don't know how or why I have so much of it, but it's definitely one of the reasons why I always have a smile glued to my face. I believe in a lot of things and one of them is in the end everything will be fine, if it's not fine, it's not the end. Tomorrow is never promised to us, and I've seen far too many people complain, whine, cry, obsess about their 'sad' life and I feel bad for them, because of what they're missing out on. What is it that's so bad that you are so sad about? I mean if you think you got it bad, there are far too many others out there who have it worst. #thinkaboutit

I don't know why it took me as long as it did to see the movie, but I finally saw the darn movie. After countless numbers of people telling me how much the book and trailer reminded them of me, I can see in some aspects why they would think that. I'm not going to sit here and give a review of the movie, but I have to say there were some pretty inspiring points, some ideas to dwell on, and also dull moments. If you're interested just see the movie for yourself to judge, because everyone is different.
It's amazing how fear works, and depending on how you use it, it could either help you or hold you back in life. It could help you by allowing you to feel, see, and realize things you never would have without it. A few examples: the fear of losing someone, the fear of not succeeding, the fear of letting someone down, etc.
I see so many of my peers allow fear to hold them back in life, and as much as I wish I could help them snap out of it, there's only so much I can say to them and as usual words don't travel far enough for people to actually listen. An example of that is although so many of my friends aren't happy in their relationship w/their significant other, they still continue to stay in it because they are comfortable, it's easy, and they fear change. Stupidest thing I've ever seen yes, but like I said how fear works is amazing, and it's so powerful that it'll have people sacrificing their happiness for it.

Two words I hate using in sentences is: I dream _______. or I wish __________. I mean, yes I use them in that context from time to time, but I try my hardest not to because instead of dreaming or wishing for something to happen, I like to make it happen. Why tease yourself of the thought of the dream and wish if you aren't going to put any action into it. A dream and a wish will only remain a dream and a wish unless you attempt to do the impossible. It's kinda like teasing a fat kid with a cake and not letting him have a slice, why would you do that to yourself?
Some people think about doing things
Some people wish to do things
And some people do
I like to think myself as the person that does. Dreaming and wishing it is just the plan, then I put that plan into action. Mission accomplished.

I like to go back and reread the things I've written and see how much of it has changed since then. I read back to my post back in November 13, 2009 and it read:
blah blah blah then..."Trade everything I've known and am comfortable with for something unfamiliar and unknown? People would say I'm crazy if I traded everything I've known in for something unfamiliar, that's why I'm still here, physically. I feel like my heart is elsewhere. You can too."
It's funny how it all worked out in the end. My heart was truly elsewhere. It's a shame that it took me months and months to do something about it though, but then again it took that long for a reason.
