No, I didn’t impulsively fly to South Korea recently (although I wish I had the time and money to do so).
Souvenirs from Seoul!
I asked my uncle to buy me a pair of chopsticks and a spoon, only because I completely forgot to do it myself when I went there two years ago. He also thoughtfully bought a plated bookmark to add to my pseudo-collection, and a cute pouch from Everland.
And because I’m a girl, I also convinced him to buy some Korean beauty products (with the justification that it’s waaaay cheaper in Seoul).
Saying that you don’t have time is not a valid excuse, because if you really want to do something, you’d move heaven and earth just to pull through with it—in short, you would make time for it. I’ve said it countless times that I’d get back to posting stuff here on the blog, but let me use that “excuse” and justify. Getting in the way of leisure time are the little things that are out of my control, such as the bipolar weather, the brownouts, other people’s schedules, sudden “somethings” to work on, the list goes on. It doesn’t only happen to me. There are times when I just want to be artistic outside the confines of work… play piano or sing at the top of my lungs just to de-stress. Haha!
I’m just writing this post to remind myself to get back on track and post a bunch of photos from the last few months, kasi sayang naman. What’s the point of taking photos and coming up with stylized shoots of items if I don’t post them here, right?
So self, less of Instagram and Facebook News Feed (and of internally moping about things beyond your control), more of practicing styling skills in the form of flatlays and coming up with lettering art with the supplies you bought a couple of months ago. Must make time.
