Life has made a 360-degree turn for me and at this point, I can no longer tell if that is good or bad.
New experiences are supposedly good, right? I mean, I still believe that being able to open up one’s world can potentially enrich anyone’s life. But of course, I think the “bad” is in the process because getting to that “ideal outcome” is hardly ever simple. It entails work.
There’s no such thing as an “easy way out”–trust me, I thought I’ve mastered this stunt my whole entire life but really, it’s as good as non-existent. People want to live happily every after and enjoy the fruits of their labor without doing actual labor or undergoing hardships; it’s not a bad thing, it’s just that it’s impossible.
So working towards a favorable outcome already involves painstaking effort on my end, what makes it all the more difficult is being accosted by uncertainty. Which outcome do I really want to work on? Hell, I can’t even figure that out yet (for the life of me, really).
If there’s anything I hate more than tacky hair and pretentious people, it’s being stuck in limbo.
You see, my world has opened itself up to a multitude of possibilities and yes, I know that’s not necessarily a bad thing–in fact, it is essentially a good thing, but sometimes I think that perhaps having a lot of options is becoming more burdensome than having none at all.
Pessimistic but trust me, choices overcomplicate things. I blame my restless nights on over-thinking various results based on hundreds of alternatives to the path of Life. Please, don’t be like me–my thoughts give me a migraine.
I’m like a walking case study of Jorge Luis Borges’ short story entitled “The Garden of Forking Paths”–a favorite of mine since I was sixteen. Universal truths transcend time, blah blah blah. Ah, never mind. If you haven’t read it yet, I implore you to… it’s mind-blowing. Or just Wikipedia it, whatever.
If I had a choice also, I would wish my life to be a DC Comic Book universe with the presence of “Alternate Universes” wherein they present you with your life in the event that you made alternate choices. You dig? But unfortunately, my life is not a Philosophical work of Science Fiction. I can manipulate it but the output will never be fully-known to me.
Thankfully, despite having all these mind-boggling transcendental questions popping in my head during night time, I am still able to enjoy the small and beautiful things happening day-to-day. God is good, of course. I get to relax, enjoy my conscious time with friends and family, and do normal everyday stuff still–I’m not really borderline delusional as I make myself out to be, I just have a thing for histrionics.
Anyway, a good distraction was attending my boyfriend’s uncle’s surprise birthday party last week. Since he’s from Australia, they chose to have a “Safari Outback” theme. Coming from work that day, I opted to mix furs with animal print–a no-brainer. So yes, I don’t mean to be unoriginal and pay homage months late to Katy Perry but I don’t think there’s a more perfect time than this.
So here’s to my long-drawn Quarter Life Crisis. One thing’s certain, regardless of what work I have to undergo to achieve a particular outcome, you can bet your life on me doing it in style. Always. Anyway, here are some more photos:
Before I forget, I have two announcements! One is pretty short and that is, the contest to my L’Oreal Free Hair Coloring services is now close and I will be posting the winner this Wednesday, on my next blog post. Two and this is pretty exciting, allow me to present an opportunity that doesn’t come very often…
