hello!
Alliterations are amusing. Chandeliers, cheesecakes, and charm bracelets make me happy. My blog aims to spread pink, positive thoughts and pretty little things. Send me some love and kisses via mail@krissyfied.com.

Thoughtful Thoughts Sunday: Home

Today my parents and I chug-chug-chugged in a Fiera along Commonwealth Avenue, squeezed in with four years of my independence's worth of 'souvenirs'. Yes, I left my apartment to go back to my parents' house.  It just isn't practical to keep it now that I am working in Makati, so I really have to get used to my new travel arrangements to and from work.

Oh hai, old office.
I found packing difficult not only because of the humongous pile of stuff I have accumulated through the years, but also because [if I am being completely honest] I would prefer renting another apartment near my new office if only I am financially capable to do so.

Don't get me wrong, I love my family. It's just that, as a 26 year old woman who has been living independently since 2008, I couldn't help but feel I might need some time to adjust to this set-up again even though I used to still come home every weekend before. Goodbye to going home anytime I wanted, goodbye to sneaking in impulse purchases without worrying about someone telling me off, goodbye to not needing to ask permission whenever I need/ want to go somewhere.

On second thought... Hello to my mother's back rubs when I go home exhausted. Hello to warm glasses of milk before bedtime. Hello to my parents being readily available when I get sick. Hello to sleeping with all my stuffed plushies in my bed, in my pink-and-cream room. Hello to warm home-cooked food. Hello to finally being able to organize my mini library.

Maybe it won't be so bad after all.

I think I want a pet.

It will be good--I'm sure your parents will not be as "parenty" about where you go and when.  They know you're an adult now.  that sounds strange, doesn't it???  :)
