7 Reasons Why You Lose So Many Friends In Your 20s

1. People change. This is so obvious but it’s the leading cause of friendship death in your twenties so we must acknowledge it. You don’t know who you are at the age of twenty but you gravitate towards who makes the most sense in that moment. Then, as you get more of a handle on yourself and what kinds of people you actually want to surround yourself with, you make necessary changes. You cut the fat. You bid farewell to those who no longer fit. This is perhaps the hardest kind of friendship loss to weather because there’s no one to blame. You both just grew into different people. And when there’s no place to pinpoint blame, the heartache can last longer.

2. People move. They move clear across the country, they move to Europe, they plant the seeds of their life somewhere that’s not close to you and then…

I am Creativity.

Hi, Blog.

August 14, 2013 § 1 Comment

So I decided to start blogging again (like, for the nth time). But this time I’m gonna keep it simple and personal. Also, I think its time to clean this bad boy. I mean, there’s too much going on here, right? I’m not even a professional blogger but I have loads of ads here. Like I can even get the clicks need to earn money.
Anyway, as I’ve said I’m gonna start blogging again and this time about my boring little life. Not about fashion or anything like that. I’m not ~not~ into that stuff but I’m not interested enough to blog about it either. I don’t know, I’m just really a spontaneous person and I’ll write whatever comes to mind. So…yeah. Hi.

A Song That Makes Me Cry… Everytime

November 30, 2011 § Leave a comment

Skyline Pigeon


Turn me loose from your hands
Let me fly to distant lands
Over green fields, trees and mountains
Flowers and forest fountains
Home along the lanes of the skywayFor this dark and lonely room
Projects a shadow cast in gloom
And my eyes are mirrors
Of the world outside
Thinking of the way
That the wind can turn the tide
And these shadows turn
From purple into grey

For just a Skyline Pigeon
Dreaming of the open
Waiting for the day
He can spread his wings
And fly away again
Fly away skyline pigeon fly
Towards the dreams
You’ve left so very far behind

Just let me wake up in the morning
To the smell of new mown hay
To laugh and cry, to live and die
In the brightness of my day

I want to hear the pealing bells
Of distant churches sing
But most of all please free me
From this aching metal ring
And open out this cage towards the sun

WHY? This song always tears me up because I remember my lolo (grandfather) when he was still with us. It has a lot of memories attached to it and it always takes me to a place and that mixed emotion of happiness and sadness.

Dream House

November 29, 2011 § Leave a comment

          I grew up in the city so I have this fantasy that one day, I will be living in a suburban house with a white picket fence. Aaah the American dream! Minor flaw: I’m not American. Haha! And I recently realized that I’m more of an urban loft-ish kind of person. Open and airy. Killer city view. Minimal and modern furnishings. Neutral and chic colors. Oh, and clever design elements. Ahhhh!
       There’s this warehouse in Spain, which was converted into a loft by two architects. This had me drooling ever since I first read about it. The warehouse was originally used as stables, then as a bomb shelter, and followed by its most recent incarnation as a print shop, this expansive warehouse space located in Barcelona, Spain, has withstood the test of time and numerous transformations. Now the designers Benito Escat and Alberto Rovira have given the space yet another purpose by recreating it into a handsome urban loft that is everything modern and hip. AND AHHH! I FELL IN LOVE!
          The 8,600-square-foot space has an open layout with beautiful exposed-brick walls, high ceilings, and poured concrete floors.
          With two floors, the main level features the living area, which is outfitted with an extra long sofa, leather-upholstered wooden armchairs, and a sleek low cocktail table. Just behind the living area, a colorful floral glass chandelier hangs over a stainless-steel dining table while an edgy light fixture is suspended over a steel island in the kitchen where a wall of lacquer cabinets has been installed. A corner on the main floor functions as the library/office and contains stacks of books, art, vintage globes, and a towering grandfather clock.
          Contrastingly, the lower level of the loft resembles a city apartment and houses the light-filled master bedroom and bath. The walls are painted stark white and the floors are of polished wood. A luxuriously upholstered bed is placed in front of a wall of shelves that serve as an open closet, and a freestanding bathtub along with a mirror-walled shower closet with sleek shower fittings.
         Another warehouse converted into my dream loft is located in the South Beach neighborhood of San Francisco. The striking Oriental Warehouse Loft by Edmonds + Lee Architects. This home’s design is a renovation of an existing apartment loft. To maximize the space inside the residence, the designers chose to abandon the general rules of maintaining privacy with regard to windows and transparency. Instead, the home opens up to nature with large expanses of glass to blend the inside and outside world.

Inside the rusted timber and brick structural shell, you will find a contemporary interior design with modern furniture, fixtures and finishes. There is also millwork detailing and the insertion of a steel cantilever stair that connects the ground floor living areas with the private sleeping quarters upstairs. The home is definitely a great rehabilitation project and the results are amazing!

So there you have it. Those are my dream houses…………errr…………..lofts. I know, I know, a bit unrealistic. But it is, after all, a DREAM house, yes?

So…tomorrow the challenge continues!

Oh boy! This is a useless post. Hahahaha
I’m not OCD about anything. I know it sounds bad but I’m a slack, I’m careless, I’m negligent and I’m a hoarder! Haha I can’t have anything organized. I go into panic if anything is. I can’t find things when they’re organized. I’m really scatter-brained but it works out really well for me. I swear.
My desktop and my workplace kinda looks like this………..close. Haha see see see seeeeeee
So…..tomorrow the challenge continues!
