Accentuated Monochrome

I'm a mood dresser, and the weather could really affect my mood. The weather has been really bipolar for the past few weeks for some reasons. I learned not to trust it whenever I'm dressing up since it gets really hot in the afternoon when it rains in the morning or vice versa. However, I make sure that I'm prepared. Last Friday, for example, I wore a plain muscle tee inside an over-sized plaid polo since it was gloomy in the morning and fortunately, I was finally able to dress for the weather since the rain down-poured all over Manila when the sun was about to set. Unlike the other day, I wore a bandage skirt because it was hot in the morning but it ended up raining in the afternoon. I had no back-up plan. Haha, one should learn to follow thy mighty instincts!

Accentuated Monochrome - black and white palette with a twist. It somehow represents the bipolar weather we've been experiencing. If I don't wear the white polo, I would be comfortable with what I'm wearing even under the heat of the sun and if I wear it, I'd be ready to walk with the chilly wind under those gray gloomy skies.

Life in Transit

(c) Robbie Maroon

Change. Transition. 

Who would have thought that high school life was that fast? Yes, we've heard people tell us that we wouldn't even realize it until it's almost over. Next thing you know, you're already preparing for college. When you wake up the next morning, it's already your first day as a frosh. Then, you wouldn't be able to know what to feel when you've already spent 3 months with your blockmates and your first term is almost over. Since college life is a little bit too fast in DLSU because of the trimestral system, I must admit that the transition wasn't that bad after all. It took me days before actually getting used to not having the same classroom for the whole day, having a flexible schedule, meeting new people, acquiring that org dedication, feeling the school spirit, getting acquainted with the campus, knowing where to eat, learning how to spend freecuts and of course figuring stuff on your own. Also, I'm still in the zone of getting comfortable with commuting since college life means a whole new level of discovery and independence. Even though these changes happened, I could say that things still aren't completely sinking in. 

I still do find myself wondering what could have happened if there was a point in my life wherein I didn't make the same decision or I chose another track. Out of all the options that I had, what are the odds of being able cross paths with the awesome people I met in college. Nothing will ever be the same. It's amazing how it seems like everything was planned out beforehand when in fact it all depended on the choices I've made.

I'm thankful that the transition may have changed me in a way where I became more open-minded with the possibilities of more good things to look forward to, but at the same time, the people I spent most of my days with still remained. I feel blessed that I was given such an awesome bunch of high school batchmates and classmates who I now pertain to as a family. A draw-back that reminds me of where I came from and the past that made me into who I am today.
