Not-so-simple joys

Total: P3k+
1.
First time I laid eyes on Sally Hansen's 'Nude Now', my heart skipped a beat. That happens. You see something and fantasize about life with that object. You get closer, look at the price you have to pay in exchange for it. It can only be either very expensive and improbable or very expensive yet manageable. The moment you realize you have a chance, some purchasing power, the desire intensifies.

So I bought it, applied it on my nails, and whatever the opposite of regret is was how I felt.

We human beings are meant to walk, are we not? But we have evolved and now we must do it in style. For that reason, I bought a pair of Keds: the canvas sneakers and the idea of slipping on your shoes and then doing amazing things.

The book I wanted was not available in the two bookstores I visited. But I had to have something new to read. Somehow it was for the better as I was compelled to once again take a risk—buy a book because of its cover, synopsis, and blurb.

The sweetness at the bottom of the pie is shelved under general fiction, though I see it as more of young adult fiction and I love YA. I am on page 144 and very happy—with the story and the discovery.

  1. There's this completely refreshing feeling that I get whenever I visit your blog. If there's a kind of writing that really suspends the (harsh) realities of mankind's daily existence (or some of ours, at least haha), it's the razelibrary. Miss you, cuz! Let's date soon!

    1. Thanks for the kind words, cuz. This blog does me good and I keep this up for purely selfish reasons. I'm pleased that the writing is able to positively affect others as well—even just one person. =)

      A date is imperative.
