I’m through accepting limits
’cause someone says they’re so
Some things I cannot change
But till I try, I’ll never know!
Too long I’ve been afraid of
Losing love I guess I’ve lost
Well, if that’s love
It comes at much too high a cost! —- WICKED “Defying Gravity”
Window seat please
I could never sit in the aisle, especially not the middle seat, once I sat on the middle row’s middle seat, and seriously thought I was passing out, on top of that, it was a flight through rain storm.
I felt much secure looking out, perhaps this is a kind of claustrophobia?
Never had I traveled with my whole family for a long while, 17 years to be exact, and on the seat I realized my brother has the same issue with me, though he was in Barcelona last year for an exchange year and jetted to a few European city, he said he must choose window seat, hold on to the arm chair super tight when taking off, and in case something happen, he would always know what’s going on outside. And I guess you could assume what happened on the flight: both of us were fighting for window seat, which was fine as we traveled as 4, 2 of us in each row, only one time the ground staff had four of us lined up on the same row, with 3 of us at one, and to be a nice sister, I had to gave up my seat 😛 Being on window seat has me take grasped how mother nature amazingly shape up unique landscape, always awe me through the whole travel experience. Sorry, if i talked a lot on the plane, because what’s outside the window is overwhelmed to use any adjectives to describe in words, better with eyes.
A peek through my eyes traveling from Taipei to Manila last February for Chinese New Year holiday and Manila to Tagbilaran(Bohol island) back and forth from Manila to Taipei. The hue from the sunset air was an eye-rolling ______ (scream?!). *didn’t I say it’s hard to describe with any adjectives? please help me fill in the blank 😀
I’ve lined post up for my the Philippines trip, somehow wordpress has been letting me down after I uploaded photos ready to post, it lost connection, and my zillion photos snatch to 10, with me frowning and exhausted to do the same work 5 times again, bamm down, and repeat again. In addition, photos tilted originally after uploaded, edited it, and it still titled, and I felt a bit done at this moment. *Fellow blogger friends if you have any suggestions how to solve it, please leave comment or inbox me, I seriously appreciate your reach out (hug).
I’ve been having an overwhelmed life for the past 4 weeks as I started a new full-time job at a beauty start-up (and a reason why I took a short time off blogging, and missing everyone’s new article, let me catch up a bit, as I’ve love reading everyone’s post around the world!). I think what crazy is: I enjoy what I do. Another crazy thing is: start-up is a crazy world. A+A together you got one crazy me at the moment. I once read: if you are very into your job, you won’t press snooze and would jump off the bed excited for the day to start. This is how I am like these days, I have to be honest I never had this kind of feelings and would not take an action as “jump off the bed”, as I would press a zillion snoozes and dragged to the very last moment rolling off the bed. I must have been added some pills during my coffee interview, just kidding, perhaps the word to define this is- “passionate”. “Passionate”- is something I’ve been looking for a while, as I believe doing something we truly love and enjoy, quote up “You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough, YOLO!” And I think for the current moment I found it here at this place.
The other day working out my strengths and focus at the gym early morning, one of my favourite musical WICKED’s Defying Gravity came to my ear, it resonates all those sweat and tears I’ve been through, it’s like traveling looking out the window astonished what kind of surprise mother nature bring us, and how life amazes me at this current moment.
