Old Soul, Young Body

There is something so cathartic about wearing vintage clothes. Especially colorful vintage clothes. It is almost like reading a book - if the need to escape creeps up on you, this is the perfect antidote.

These days I find myself wearing more dotted garments, long skirts, oxford shoes, high-waisted bottoms and cinched dresses just to get that vintage vibe. I'm an old soul like that.

This outfit is a little inspired by Lee Gyu Won's outfits in You've Fallen For Me, aka Heartstrings. She's a vintage soul as well.

You've Fallen For Me doesn't have the most profound story but the chemistry between the two lead characters was so palpable, you can't help but really feel for them. They are so cute together, you'll turn into milktoast. If you have watched You're Beautiful and you think their love story needs a continuation, this is the continuation you are looking for.

The drama was supposed to have more than 16 episodes. They aired a special in between the episodes to allow the lead actress a reprieve after being in a car accident. But since the drama did not reach the recommended rating to be granted an extension, the episodes had to be cut short - at 15 episode with the special being the 16th. I blame that on them being in the same time slot as City Hunter's. But you have to give it to City Hunter. They have an awesome, jaw-dropping season ender, you'd be craving for more Yun Seong martial arts moves.

And I have been addicted to T-Ara's Roly Poly lately.

They're so adorably retro. :) And see Eun Jung's blazer in the last photo? I think i have a similar one. But only in brown. hee~ I'm addicted to dots.

Waiting For Someone To Go Out Of His Way For Me

I have it on great authority that when your immune system is down, the blues starts kicking in. It's as if the world has conspired to torture you. You start to develop a severe case of allergic reaction to the universe. You start to wonder why you even bother waking up in the morning.

But then your human instinct finds its way out and you still get off that alluring bed of yours to face the world and all its misfortunes and ugliness head-on. And then you start to read all these positive quotes on whatever social media you are using. This and that philosopher is telling you to stop being such a waste of space, get up and do something productive.

And you wonder why you get the feeling that everyone else has the perfect life.

This is probably why blogging is such a balm to the spirit. Blogging allows you to be vulnerable - to show the side of you that for some reason you have been masking in other social media platforms.

And these days, I wonder why only a meager few are receptive. And why only a few people are attuned to each other.

And you can watch all the protagonist-saves-damsel-in-distress movies and dramas but reality sinks in and bludgeons you with the realization that nobody is going to save you. You have to be your own hero.

I've been sick as a dog since yesterday. And here I was thinking I am safe from all sorts of disease-causing viruses considering I don't go out that much. But apparently, my immune system has not been in its best condition these past few weeks.

This is probably why I am anything but coherent today.
