Ask yourself this: how often do you give yourself a break from all the crazy things in your life? We get so caught up with what's happening around us that we often neglect the need to breathe. We care so much about owning more that we end up beating ourselves thinking about how we are not good enough or how we should have done this and not that. Thing is, because everyone talks about life as chasing deadlines on a fast track, we ignore the importance one thing: slowing down.


Why Slowing Down Is Necessary

I am a packaging hoarder. I find it difficult to throw away empty bottles when they're designed oh so amazingly and lately, it seems to me that more and more brands are leaning towards minimalist design in terms of their product packaging. I'm not saying all brands do that but most certainly do because minimalism is this trendy thing that people seem to be discussing lately. Of course this is all a subjective speculation from yours truly so don't take it too seriously.

I found myself pacing back and forth, arguing whether or not I should publish this post. I was afraid things might get too personal, that I'd expose too much and people are going to judge me. I don't want this blog to be a bunker of negativity. I guess no matter how tough I sounded by saying how I'll post whatever I want, in the end I'm still intimidated to take that step. Isn't it ironic though, since I end up publishing this post like it's a big "screw you" to potential haters out there... Maybe a part of me just don't care, a part of me just wants to let this be read and maybe, that's okay too.

Here I go again, posting a weekend highlight entry a day after the week ends. I recently have a lot of things I want to write about and it has been disrupting my schedule for updating blog series, my bad. But since we're here now, let's do some total recall-ing (heh, if you understand my reference, I'll love you forever.)

If I gain every penny for every single time I say I have eczema-prone skin that constantly come and goes, I think I'd be rich by now. But yes, let me repeat it again for everyone out there: I have eczema. I am a loyal subscriber of eczema. I have flare-ups every now and then mostly on my chest, waist, legs and sometimes elbow. As I've mentioned before, life with eczema is a high maintenance frustration. Eczema itself, though not contagious, cannot be cured completely but it can be avoided or minimized and here's how.

I love indie music, that alone is super obvious if you've known me for a while. And just like that, I've been into the indie, "oldy but a goodie" 90s vibe too when it comes to a lot of things. I don't know about you but there's something about a 90s bedroom that intrigues me and I wish I have such pastel colored bedroom with lots of posters and books and records. I think it has something to do with me watching Stranger Things too.
