Short Post: Uninspired

Uninspired is a word I try to forget in my vocabulary. It is a word that elicits negative vibes and makes you unmotivated to go on with your day. As hard as I may try to forget, there will always be moments that make you uninspired. You don’t have the energy to live. You don’t want to go to work. Your mind afloat a different universe not even parallel to where you are standing. It is a struggle to go on with your day when you feel uninspired. It hinders productivity and thwarts efficiency. In the end, everything piles up, you become stressed, and you become even more uninspired with your life.

Hallyu Corner: Learning 한국어

Top: Forever 21 | Skirt: Ever New | Wedges: S.O. Fab!
Hat: Peaches on Top | Bracelets: random

My fascination for South Korea is infinite that even learning their language has become a requisite for me. Every time I watch Korean Dramas of listen to Kpop I am trying to pick up as many words as I can. I learned some of the Korean words I know from doing that. But of course, self studying isn't as reliable as being taught in school. I learned in Korean class so I can learn how to write and understand the language better. Now that module 1 is over, I can say my knowledge has increased to about 20%. I am determined to make that 100% so I can travel to Korea on my own and not be afraid to get lost.

30 Before 30

Hat: SM Dept. Store | Shirt: from mom | Skirt: Topshop
Wedges and Bag: thrifted | Bracelet: Forever 21

Being in your 20's is probably the most fun, exciting, and adventurous phase in anyone's life. So while you're at it, enjoy, have fun and do the things that you want to do.

When I was a teenager, I thought being in your 20's and being employed are the equivalent of adulthood. I thought that once you get to experience what they call as real life, it will make you more mature and wiser. Now that I am in my 20's and employed, my thoughts were altered. Just because you are working doesn't mean you are now an adult. Yes, it teaches you how to become more responsible but not everyone really becomes responsible. Yes, it gives you more wisdom but not everyone lives by the wisdom they learn. Being in your 20's and working does not mean you become an adult. It is a phase in life that merely teaches you how to become an adult. It is that decade when you are allowed to be crazy and just enjoy life while at the same time learning things about life so when you do become an adult, you know better. It is only a few more years before I leave this decade and then I have to force myself to become an adult. So while I am still at it, I will have fun and let myself go crazy.

5 Ways to Cut Expenditure so you can Travel

Top: Terranova | Skirt: SM Department Store | Sandals: Zara
Necklace: Thomas Sabo | Clutch: gifted | Watch: Swatch

I often find myself daydreaming of my next destination. The change in environment, the culture you learn, and the people you get to interact with excite me. I don’t often go abroad due to time and financial constraints but I am really saving up for it so that someday, in the near future, I will be able to set foot in a different continent.

Sunshine Blogger Award

[Hat: Peaches on Top | Top: Forever 21 | Shorts: Jellybean | Sandals: Zara]

I haven't done any "blogger award" post for years! I think of all the blogger awards passed on to me, I was only able to post one - which you can read here. I haven't written anything personal for the past few months. All you can read on my blog are about beauty, travel and my Kpop addiction. I did mention on this post that I will do a little reformatting on this blog which is why I have included such topics but I do miss doing something personal. Factual as this tag may be but the questions really answer to my personal life. I am not going to tag other bloggers (sorry Gellie!) as what the original tag requires me to do because I believe all of you bring sunshine to the blogging world. But I would like to encourage anyone or everyone reading this to also do it! And if you ever do, please leave a link in the comment box as I would be happy to read them.
