If you dear little girls would only learn what real beauty is and not pinch and starve and bleach yourselves out so, you’d save an immense deal of time and money and pain. A happy soul in a healthy body makes the best sort of beauty for a man or woman.

Tried using nude/pale pink lipstick last night and it doesn’t really suit me well. But maybe a little color, eh? ヽ(´ー`)┌

There’s this Field Demonstration going on today at my old school, so we are taking photos of the said event—we’re actually the school official photographer, that’s why. So yea, I basically kind of miss those days when I used to be one of those students performing in front of our parents, crowd. I miss wearing those costumes, the dance steps, the excitement and the jittery feeling before the performance and all that.. it is just so nice to reminisce about good old days. (´∀`)Okidoks, we’re still going back there for another set of performances. Ciao!

Stolen. Miss you Mr. Caulfield and the time we spent together. I guess, see you soon? maybe?  ♡

You know what? I’ve changed. I’ve become more positive and a happy person. Yes, I still let all the negativity exist within me, but not for a long time, not in the way that I will dwell on it for so long. I started thinking and applying positive thoughts, I let it all flow freely and it’s really a nice feeling. I’m happy. Happy about everything that’s happening to me, despite all the problems I’m still having. I don’t let sadness overcome me and drains me all away, again. Now, I’m better. Much better. I’m not saying that it’s wrong to be sad, in fact, it’s okay to be sad, really. It’s okay not to be okay. You don’t have to fake a smile if you don’t feel like it, you don’t have to pretend. It’s okay because you have every right to cry and to be hurt, you have the right to hate the world, everything. So go on but not for too long. If you want to be happy, it will always starts with you, with how you are going to think. Rule your mind with positive thoughts and just smile genuinely. As long as you’re happy, that’s all that matters. I’m happy.
