birthday week, sorted.

Hello, it’s me again.

As much as I’m grateful for my birthday, I’m also kind of relieved that this week is over. It’s been hectic. I sat down and looked at my schedule for next week and I’m slightly terrified. Being busy is good, though.

I’ve never really had huge parties for my birthday. I mean, I couldn’t celebrate for close to 7 years, then my 14th happened and that was an interesting affair. This year was pretty quiet, with my family surprising me at 8am with cake and presents¬†and dinner later that night at Bocosan Izakaya. Run by the same people as Botanica + Co, it was somewhere I can imagine going back to. The company is what made it amazing, though.

Conspicuous Pestle & Mortar product placement was not intentional.

I’m 24 now, and as I was reminded at the family dinner – I’m in my mid-20s now. It doesn’t seem like a huge deal, but I guess the expectations are different. I do find it hard to balance everything, but I’m getting by. I guess it’s like those Tumblr posts where you’re looking for an adult only to realise that you are the adult. Will this change in the next 5 years? I don’t know.

Existential dread aside (because really, is it an existential crisis if you have one everyday?) – things are okay. I mean, I’m not in a great spot. There are some less-than-ideal aspects of my life, but at the end of the day – that’s the way things are.

Here’s a quick gallery of some of my makeup looks over the last week, but I do realise my standard winged liner-and-nude lip combo might get boring after a while. Maybe it’s time to switch it up again.

Another thing that’s been happening: I’m going to start sticking all the songs that get stuck in my head in a Spotify playlist. Admittedly, I’m constantly connected to my phone and this playlist goes everywhere with me – MRT rides, daily car trips, walking through the city. You name it. Tell me what you think of this (and hopefully, don’t judge my music taste too badly).
