Love my airplane earrings.

Still at square one.

My thesis is still non-existent and I'm freaking out. I'm literally running out of time and I'm not getting any younger. Though being a student is indeed a lot of fun, I can't be one forever. I have to finish, close a chapter and open a new one.

Until now, (I'm this close to the finish line) I still don't know what to do with my life, with my future. I want to do tons of things but I know I can't. The tough part is figuring out what to do with my life. I know I'm not the only one thinking about this. But when I see people my age (even younger), see them be successful, see them have direction; I can't help but wonder why is it so difficult for me to find my own path.

Why can't I claim for myself that I wanna be this, I wanna be that? Why do I feel like I'm in a mid-life crisis when definitely I'm not? And why is it so hard to focus on things that I should prioritize? Urrgh.

Thinking too much or better yet, over thinking is really that stressful noh?

BTW, a little disclaimer: I'm writing these things not because I'm too self absorbed. This goes out to all imperfect human beings who think they are the only ones who believe that their future is "unsure", to those who haven't found their true calling yet, and to those who remain looking for their purpose in life.

Cliche? Yes. But life is made of cliche's anyway. Almost everyone goes through or have gone through almost the same things, almost the same situations, like first love, first kiss, first failure, first day of school, ugly betty days, and a series of what ifs and what nots.

    On another note, those pants are awesome, Melai! I don't have anything nice to say about the earrings mainly because I'm scared of flying. Haha
