One day away

Responsibility is looming.

I am just a day away from turning 20 and I don't think I have achieved anything significant so far.

What's the big deal anyways? It's a number and I am far from claiming my adolescent years were in essence when "the good times rolled". I don't want to grow up but I learnt that is inevitable haha.

The reason why I haven't blogged in more than a week, I broke my dear old camera, Canon. But as I am known to "live and let live" I will buy a meaner, sexier, well equipped SLR haha and in addition my internet has exceeded it's limit. But don't worry in a few days my internet will be up and running. I will get back to all of you as soon as possible.

will be replaced hopefully by this bad boy

Sorry about the lame quotations I'm happy!

How do you guys deal with attention or birthdays and other celebrations?

My friend Enep also sent me a forward.

So here it is...
1. Respond and rework: answer the questions on your blog, replace one question that you dislike with a question of your own invention.
add one more question of your own and tag 8 people and list them.

What is your current obsession?
Sewing! What better way to make clothes that you like for a fraction of its price, exercise creativity and soothe your way through an economic crisis.

What is your weirdest obsession?
At night I have to cover all windows and I drink water out of a cup

What are you wearing today?

What’s for dinner lunch today?

We just made some sweet corn chicken soup, some Chinese Bok Choy with rice.

Makeup kit you cant live without?
I’m not dependant on make-up

What would you like to learn to do?
Lot’s of things! Like how to fix my Canon’s Lens Error, Photography, French, making Jewellery etc

What’s the last thing you bought?
A bag of ice for a party.

What are you listening to right now?
Junk Bond Trader- Elliot Smith

What is your favorite weather?
Anything but Winter

What is your most challenging goal right now?
Completing a task.

What do you think about the person who tagged you?
She is very profound! Her blogs overflow with intelligentsia, philosophy and she is really sweet

If you could have a house totally paid for, fully furnished anywhere in the world, where would you like it to be?
A small house along the coast.

What would you like to have in your hands right now?
A working camera.

What would you like to get rid of?

Umm… Unemployment?

If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go?
India, Mumbai. Give my aunty a big birthday hug and then spend the next half hour with my Mum and brother in California :D

Which language do you want to learn?
Tagalog or as I said before French.

What do you look for in a friend?

Who do you want to meet in person?
Ooh Sigmund Freud maybe the Roitfield family or give me some Lagerfield quality time.

What’s your favorite type of music?
I enjoy alternative/indie music, it inspires me and just makes sense whilst the genre sticks it to the man! I love to dance and loose myself to RnB, Jazz and Electro Pop. Its no good confining yourself to one genre, you will miss out!

What’s the favorite piece of clothing in your own closet?
My silk scarf and leather jacket.

What is your dream job?

I would love to be an artist, photographer maybe an entrepreneur of some sort.
Anything that encourages creativity and an appreciation for different views and beliefs. This in itself is a challenge. Oh this is far fetched.

Any favorite models?

Freja Beha: I'd wish I was better at trusting other people.

Irina Lazareanu :The masculine/feminine look fascinates me. It is not only an issue of empowering women, but I think the shapes look great.

If you had £100 now what would you spend it on?
A good SLR.

Favorite designer?
Alexander Wang and Gareth Pugh

Fashion pet peeve?
The ridiculous amount of smoking off duty.

Do you admire anyone’s style?
Alexa Chung, Zoe Kravitz, Daisy Lowe you know the whole crowd:P

Describe your personal style!

DON'T SWEAT IT said...

I felt the same exact way when I turned 20 just over a month ago and since vowed to restructure my life and get 'round to doing some of the things I'd always wanted to.

And m'dear, that is one heck of a replacement you're getting. Lovely stuff!
