You suck

Life has been nothing short of amazing lately. I've spent most of my days sleeping (haha), seeing as I've somehow managed to mess up my sleeping schedule again, but I can't find it in me to complain. I work best when I lack sleep, and - how does that saying go? 'I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night.'

I've gotten right back into writing after experiencing writer's block for a really long time. Nothing makes me happier than being able to sit down and translate my thoughts, ideas, and everything else on my mind into words that I could read over and over and over again whenever I want to, giving me a clearer idea of where I currently am in life. I've said this multiple times before to my friends, but I don't think I've ever mentioned it on my blog: writing is my escape. It's true when people say that the pain drives the artist (not that I'm going through anything right now), because my words always seem to distract me when I need it to. When you stop to think about it, the pen truly is mightier than the sword. Words can take you to places you've never been to or even another universe if strung together correctly, after all.
writing is safer, somehow
because my pen cannot stutter like my lips do,
and words get stuck in throats,
not fingertips, can’t stumble
on paper trails of blue lines
because writing is definite and clear
and no one can tell if i am crying
or laughing
through written words alone
I finally got to shoot my pair of Docs for November (called the 'Amory'), which is about 18 days overdue. When I first saw the heeled low-cut boots back in August, I felt iffy about it. It looked weird to me, I'll admit. But come November and the chance to try one on - I fell in love. I had the option of picking between a bright blue pair of boots and loafers, but these heeled booties won me over. They're very comfortable and they didn't give me blisters at all. It's a plus that they add at least an inch or two to your height. ;)
They're very versatile, too. Depending on how you pair it, you can get away with wearing it to a semi-formal (or formal, if you're good) event. I personally have yet to try, but I'm excited to give it a shot in the future.
As for the 'You Suck' top I'm wearing in the photo, it was given to me by Chelsea Alejandro, the lovely girl behind Seashop. Her shop is my absolute favorite go-to for quirky tops, so do check it out! She's only fourteen and has achieved so much already. She makes me very very proud!
And that's about it, really! I will be blogging about my MKTO Live in Manila experience really soon, so until then, guys! Happy holidays!
