my favorite things


Raindrops and mermaids and coffee and chocolate
Folk-pop and sad songs and wise guys with cool taste
Comfortable rubber shoes perfect for gigs
These are a few of my favorite things

Mustard on burgers and french fries on sundaes
Long sleeves and leggings and denims that are frayed
Deep conversations with people who cling
These are a few of my favorite things

Bonfire when camping and movies at midnight
Silence and backpacks and sunsets and ziplines
All the bright colors that nature can bring
These are a few of my favorite things

When my heart aches
When my back hurts
When my money’s gone
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don’t feel so mad

P.S. This is my version of Julie Andrew’s My Favorite Things! I started this last August just for fun and I saw the piece of paper I wrote it on and then decided to complete it with the things I like this 2017. Finally, 2018 is here (in a few minutes). Happy New Year, everyone! Keep writing! ☼

Let’s Talk About Clothes


Oh my gawd I love clothes! And shopping, of course. If only I have all the money I need for me to buy everything I want I already have a house for a wardrobe.

Appearance is a tricky thing. Some people look nice on whatever they wear and some people don’t. My main goal is to be comfortable on clothes I use without losing the style I want. And to dress appropriately. First impressions don’t last, I know, and one of these impressions I get from clothes. Don’t put on something for the sake of being clothed (unless your plan is to stay at home all day) because that is obvious. Put a little effort. What you wear somehow represents you; they speak of you.

If you’re not a fan of dressing up, keeping it simple is nice too. I actually want it that way sometimes. One thing that really gets me is being neat. When I see a person that looks clean with his clothes, I look longer than the usual. And most of the time looking clean has something to do with keeping it simple.


Shopping. I want to shop alone, the reason being I trust myself better than before. When I’m with a friend or someone, you couldn’t help but ask their opinion. And of course most of the time, the two of you differ. It’s not like you have the same taste or you prefer the same style. We have unique personalities (and I don’t think I should be mentioning that coz it’s overrated) and we make our own choices. She may like the dress but you wouldn’t even look at it; you may like the shoes she dreads. It’s complicated. So I advice you to shop on your own. That way you could go about the mall without thinking of your companion, because you don’t have one! And you could choose the things you really want, not what the others want. It’s you who’ll use them anyway.
