Miss Pessimistic

I feel that time’s slipping out of my fingers. What I’ve grasped for almost two months now is slowly slipping away. Summer Vacation is nearing its final bow, and I know I’m not the only one to shout “Encore!” out loud, at the top of my lungs.

Ugh, the social media. One day you’re posting pictures of your Singapore trip, “unknowingly” (and presumably) making people sigh with longing and wish it was them travelling, but, the next day you’re looking at albums called “Euro Trip” or “The Best Place In the Whole World, Suckas” and wish YOU were the one who was in their shoes. After my Boracay trip with my Med friends I wanted to go to another fun, exciting trip but time and money do not go hand in hand for me at all. This is my last free summer vacay, I just want something to happen, I want to feel the thrill of road trips and inhale the fresh, Manila-free air once again before classes start. But maybe the trouble is not always the money. I have a strict Mom so travelling with my friends or even nights out always was an issue.  Maybe that explains the weird otherworldly dreams I have. I always liked dreaming, it takes me to places and faces no sane human being would ever imagine. Maybe in this world, dreams are inversely proportional to the life you are actually living. Anyway, all I’m saying is, I may not be living the life I desire… as of the moment. Summer vacation sucks when you’re stuck at home. Forgive me if I’m being Miss Pessimistic now but I’m trying here. That was why I chose to write these feelings down and get it over with and start doing stuff, you know. I’ll be making the most out of the soon-to-be-over vacation, even if I won’t go places like in my dreams. Hopefully come June, when classes are here I’d be telling everyone, “I had a summer blast, suckas.”

Live Long and Prosper,

Galactic Summer

Purple eyes x Orange lips, a perfect combo for those summer nights.

I did this a long time ago so I can barely remember the names of the shades I used, but I got the colors from the UD Vice palette and Naked 2. Just make sure to put some neutral color like brown on the crease for depth. As for my lips, I swiped on MAC Good to Go. :)

Our Big Blessing

My older sister gave birth last April 4 and we couldn't be any happier. Meet Mereille Alessa Gucaban-Tayag, my adorable little niece.

The day she was born was supposed to be uneventful for us, since we accompanied my sister only to see the OB-Gyn who happened to be my professor in Med school. The day started to change its course when we found out she was already dilated and already in labor, and needed to be admitted to the delivery room. Given that the baby's position in the womb was breech(meaning the feet of the fetus were touching the bottom of the womb instead of the head), she had a C-section done and fortunately the baby was delivered safely.

My sister and I were always debating how her baby would look like and now we have a very tangible little human whom I deem my look-alike. Hahaha, well, at least our lips look alike. I've always loved kids and my being Aunt is a happy moment for me! Just look at her, she looks so adorable with those little headbands!

She just celebrated her 1st month Last Saturday when we headed home from Boracay, but that's another story to tell! Write soon!

Live long and prosper,
