swallows my flying sorrows

just when i thought i had everything figured out, i wake up one morning with utter panic and pangs of confusion as i realize that i am completely lost. they say 27 is the age of confusion. i didn’t realize it could be true or this hard. as of now, there’s a 70% possibility of doing a complete 360 on my career. all my life i’ve always aimed at being streamlined, knowing what exactly i am doing and being able to strategically plan out my next steps. i grew up being the daughter that worked hard in making her parents proud but i’m afraid i’ve become a slight disappointment. as of now, i have this strong urge to just throw caution to the wind. spend my life savings. travel. bum at the beach. be careless. study fashion design. eat out. do nothing.ย 
tomorrow this can change but life’s been unpredictable and so are my feelings. i’ve been an hour late for work everyday for the past 3 weeks but i woke up early today and came in on time. so we’ll see.

  1. I love long skirts, although I can never pull them off but I love seeing the awesome designs which everyone comes up with.

    I love the careless life. It's what I thrive for although I do still want to be a hard worker, get a good job with a good pay I think about freedom and it feels so relaxing whereas work is something that pins you down. Although I think, in the long run, I'd give up the carelss act for the career I really want.

    But I wouldn't exactly know. I'm only 15. I'm still stuck in school so my feelings have a contrast with yours. So all I can say is Good luck with your life ๐Ÿ™‚


  2. When I saw the skirt, I said “Jonathan Livingston Seagull” even if I haven't read the book (therefore I have no idea what that name could mean) and am not sure if they're indeed seagulls.

    If you decide to bum, spend, study, do nothing, eat out, etc., go lang ng go. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Welcome to my world. I'm 27 and feel the exact same way sometimes!!
    But like everyone says, “don't worry. it'll work itself out!” ๐Ÿ™‚

    You look amazing and so pretty. Thanks for visiting my blog. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Have a lovely weekend.



  5. Do they really say that? 27 was an excellent year for me – I think I really started to come into my own.

    I'm sure things will work out fine ๐Ÿ™‚


  6. i guess most people go through that phase in their lives.. where they're in the state of confusion with what they want in life… i hope you'll find your purpose and find what really makes you happy! goodluck gizelle ๐Ÿ™‚


  7. i totally understand the feeling G! We all go through this kind of confusing phase at least once in our lives. No matter, i know you'd find your way eventually. whatever you decide to do…am a hundred and one percent sure you'd be great!!!

  9. What a pretty skirt and I love your hair so much! (hope it doesn't sound creepy!). I feel the same way about you too! It's just getting older and experiencing some life's disappointments has made me wish I could just escape somewhere no one can find me! But I'm trying not to pull a “Charlie Sheen”, haha. Thank you for such a sweet comment by the way! xxxooo
