It all begins with A-B-C (and D)


Hello everyone! Did you all notice anything new? Uh huh, that's right, I've had a blog makeover! I have decided to make it look more minimalist and clutter-free so I deleted most of the widgets. I have noticed the page loads faster and it looks easier on the eyes. I hope you all like the change. :)

I was in a phone conversation with Dewi - one of my friends from college - last week when she commented how all these bad things are happening to me when all I wanted was to make 2010 the best year evarrr. If you haven't read my previous post, allow me to quote myself. I wrote that "my world was most recently thrown into chaos by a series of unfortunate events (ie. a heartbreakmoving out from the apartment I have grown to love, and being robbed)." Add to that the skin allergy I had and you've got a winner for Best Loser for the First Half of the Year. Seriously, these bad stuff has got to stop. I am summoning all the positive, good vibes to come help me, please pretty please.

Anyway, I am not that upset anymore about getting robbed. Aside from the fact that I feel... incomplete when commuting as I have become dependent on my mp3 player to accompany me everywhere and that I feel like I am missing out on lots of interesting stuff to show you guys now that I don't have a camera to snappity snap, I feel okay and more accepting about it now. I guess I can't really expect the world to be made of just rainbows and smiles and lullabies. I mean, there's a reason why Batman and Iron Man were created, obviously. I reported the details to the police last Saturday. I don't think the perpetrators will be caught though. How many people will match the descriptions 30-ish man. Yep, that's right.

As my Twin Kay (yeah, she started calling me Twin ever since we found out we have the same birthdays - April 6) said, maybe this is the Universe's unconventional way of telling me it is time for something new. And I hope it doesn't mean new stuff as my room here at my parents' home is still crammed full of my stuff waiting to be unpacked ever since I moved out of my apartment. My room is small as it is without having all these boxes and bags lying around. I didn't realize how many clothes and shoes and books and bags I have until I packed them. Good thing I left my DVDs at Asther's new apartment and some of my books at Mich's. (Good luck with packing, Ejannz babe!) Kay is on to something here. If I want things to be changed, I have to change things.

I've been doing lots of journaling these days, just tapping into that stream of consciousness and letting the words flow. It's very therapeutic, really. And very cheap as well, as opposed to retail therapy. Which reminds me, I vow NOT to buy any new clothes, shoes or bags until I am holding in my hands a new digital camera.

Going back to my blog, you may notice that I've added new pages. Now you can find an About me page, a Blog awards page, a Contact me page, and a Dear Krissy page. Title of this post alludes to the fact the little OC in me felt compelled to arrange them alphabetically XD Feel free to visit these, and I would greatly appreciate it if you leave a note on the Dear Krissy page :)

Tomorrow is another work week for me. I am trying so hard to remain positive and happy. Thank you everyone for all your kind words, they are all appreciated and I am sending you big virtual hugs!

Just remember: if the world didn't suck, then we'd all fall off.

*Photo is of a pretty floral dress I bought from The Closet Queen last month. It has the same style as the dress I wore on my last day as a 23-years young lady, but with a different print. No reason why I posted it except for the fact I may wear it some time this week and also because I haven't had the chance to take new snaps yet owing to the fact my camera was *boo hoo* stolen.

The new layout is looking great. Love the minimalist look. I will definitely look up the new added pages.

And your friend is right. You need to be willing to change yourself and then you'll move forward. Wish you all the best in everything you undertake! ;p

That's a great attitude Krissy. We can't control what other people do, but we can make the best of what happens and prepare ourselves to make tomorrow better. Kay is right, the universe is nudging you towards something great.

PS - Your profile pic in the upper right hand corner--Wow! =)
