The Girls & The Grown Ups (?)

Friends have a wonderful way to let each other get by with whatever has to be gotten over with.

Back in college, we were so much suffocated with schoolworks, org activities, barkada issues, and what love life? Hah! Good thing we had each other. Better thing there were lots of videoke bars around the area. Best thing we could simply agree to just sing our madness out!

Everyone’s missing the we-are-all-housemates season (2009-2010). We could just spend a whole long night talking about guys, girls, who’s with whom, who broke up with whom, who had a one night stand with whom, who’s preggy, gitchi gitchi yaya dada; or kill noontime free hours drinking – yes, alcohol. Oh, and we also killed mornings fighting over who was to get a shower first, because nobody wanted to get her ass off the bed. Duh, that universal dilemma. ๐Ÿ˜€

But the same old barkada we are, minus K’s patootie hairs (short hair strands always sticking out of her do) and O’s long hair. ๐Ÿ˜€

Everyone’s catching up! We meet up in some places around the metro, sit over lunch, coffee, and frappe. And beer. And there, the stories roll again.

I’ll be dreaming of a house like this. ๐Ÿ™‚

Black & White Colors

I probably could say a lot about these interiors but honestly I think they say enough alone. And of course, I selected them for the most obvious reason โ€“ cause I ย like them.

Saving My Old Clothes

What the hell did I do to my favorite pair of pants? haha! So this is a hint of what happens to my old clothes when boredom catches me. ๐Ÿ˜€

This was once a pair of pants, and yes, my favorite back in high school. Just earlier this month, I found it while rummaging through my big bags of old clothes. Suddenly, I was kind of hoping it would still fit me well, but to no avail. Ohoh, poor me. It wouldn’t work as a pair of pants anymore, I thought.

ย 

So I did the most honorable thing I could think of to save myself from the fact that I could barely get my legs in them. Two-thirds of the length maybe. And…chaaanaaa, a new pair of micro-mini shorts! ๐Ÿ™‚

ย 

But before I could express all of my happiness, I found another…thing. ๐Ÿ˜‰ It was an old blouse left by a friend, forgotten and stuck in my bag in a period of forever. I decided there was no other way to save this piece than make it a part of another. The bottom part would do, I thought.

ย 

A…nd, there you go! The top part of my old jeans + the bottom part of my friend’s old blouse = a skirt. ๐Ÿ˜‰

ย 

The thing is…I wasn’t able to save myself from the fact that my waistline is no more 23-24 in. Right, it doesn’t fit me still. So, I’m giving this away. I think. (?) Or not. ๐Ÿ˜€
