The Way Music Makes You Feel

I have been emotionally attached to an abstract feeling. I hear the rain outside my window mix with the majestic sound of the tenors and basses and it’s amazing.
I can’t seem to piece together why; why a melody could churn a heart, why I cry to crappy love songs when I’m heartbroken, and why I rejoice in upbeat tempos of fortissimo.
It appears to be a normal noise we all know, but it is also disguises itself as an unfamiliar sound of beauty. In waking moments like this I could just feel a presence, a sense of comfort.
I want to fall in love with a man the same way I fall in love with music .
I want the parts of the piece to completely compel me.
I want to feel the burning sensation in my chest when I feel a song has touched me.
I want to feel the warmth in my face as I begin to take in every lyric recited.
I want my heart to beat faster and faster as the tempo matches every pulse in the room.
I want every moment of this song were playing to make my life seem like it is far beyond whatever I thought it could be.
I want to be completely lost at a home I have found in no where.
I would never have survived without music.
I find the spirit in the melodies my favorite bands play. I find solemnity in the simplicity of quiet pieces. I find epiphany as every tone matches the wavelengths of my imperfectly wonderful life.
In this relationship, I will be the playful damsel dancing to each breath taking note you play.


When will they start noticing: Make-up Problems

Hey guys,

I haven’t been very active last week. Well, I wasn’t active at all. I didn’t post anything. I’m so sorry about this, but I do have some great news! I started this experiment a few days ago, becaus make-up has been a pressing issue for a lot of young women right now.

I have absolutely nothing against make-up and I do wear a fair share of cosmetics on my face, but apparently when you start wearing make-up you automatically will be judged. It’s as if you’ve murdered someone if you wear make-up at this age. The chismis usually goes like this, “OMG! I have like kwento!” “What? What happened?” “I heard that so and so has been wearing make-up in school ever since Grade 7! She is like so fake pala!” Okay, maybe I’m over-exaggerating, but you get the point, so here is what I did. For the past 3 days I have been wearing make-up and I would want to see how much of it can you wear before people actually start noticing. Here’s the gist of the last 3 days;

042 060 066

(In ascending order of the 3 days) Here are the 3 days!


On the first day, I wore lip and cheek tint! That’s all I wore on that day and nobody noticed I had make-up.


On the second day I wore; powder, lip and cheek tint, lip gloss, and liquid foundation on some parts of my face. A few people thought I looked different on that day, but they all assumed it was the hair!


On the third day I wore; a bit of liquid foundation, bronzers and highlighters for couture, powder, lip and cheek tint, eye shadow, and eye brow powder. Nobody noticed I had make-up that day even if my powder was staining my t-shirt during training.

The funny thing is… I wore the exact amount of make-up during a special day in school and 2 people noticed. The first thing they noticed were the eye shadow and the contoured cheeks.

Girls, make-up will forever be a phase in our life we have to conquer. It’s potentially the most womanly¬†object in the world, but don’t forget that natural beauty and the beauty found inside is much more valuable than the cover we place on our faces. It doesn’t matter if you found out that your best friend of 3 years has been wearing make-up everyday. She’s still you’re best friend! Both of you still admire Zac Efron’s abs from the day he left High School Musical! With that all said, have a beautiful day, girls!
