I have found quite a few good buys recently!  Honestly, it’s really hard to find satisfactory clothes that are kind to the wallet these days.  😦  I bought items of clothing here and there, but for the most part, for the past couple of years, there was nothing, NOTHING.  The clothes that fit really well were way overpriced, and the ones that I could afford… looked like crap.  Okay, that was an exaggeration, they didn’t look like crap… but they were made from very poor quality fabrics.

Two weeks ago, I was looking for shorts for my uniform and I came across shorts that were… well… regular shorts!  Have you seen the shorts that are in stores these days???  Somehow, people like to call belts “shorts.”  I don’t understand this trend.  What is the point of having shorts when they barely cover your butt?? Okay… so I was surviving off of like… 4 shorts for the past 2 years.  One by one, they were getting knocked out of my drawers and into the arms of Big Brothers and Big Sisters.  AND I had one beige short left for my uniform… This was a doo-doo moment, meaning I WAS GOING TO BE LEFT PANTLESS FOR THE SUMMER.  Yes, I was sad- that’s why I had to go shorts shopping.  And I found real shorts!  But they sold fast- look to the photo on the left- those shorts are my savior.  I now have pants for the summer!  Hallelujah, no going tribal for me I guess!

I still didn’t get work pants though, so I might have to be nakee for work…

OH and the other buy that I would like to rave about is the shirt you see in the photo!  It is a sea green (?) zipper jacket-styled shirt from Wet Seal and it was on sale!  I like the look of it, it has a very retro casual feel and the fabric is soft and light.  It was a perfect wear for today’s weather, which was high 70s, slight breeze, and a hint of summer steam.

Today, I put the combo to work (my favorites out of my recent buys) with a pair of white sandals, swatch, and a Burberry check bowling bag.  End of the day?  I felt like a SUPERSTAR walking the streets of NYC.

Just kidding.  My units of happiness increased though~

Today, I laughed until my stomach hurt.  I have not smiled and laughed so much in a period of two hours since early last year.  Despite the cramping feeling I had in my stomach, the laughter felt good.  Being with everyone again was nice… I guess that gave me a reason to smile.  And to talk, reminisce, and joke around with everyone reminded me of what laughter can do for me.

Today, I felt silly.  I haven’t had good down time with my friends in such a long time.  We cracked cheesy jokes, perverted jokes, awkward jokes… but it didn’t matter what kind of jokes they were… they were nonetheless, funny.  This is exactly why people need bonds and friendships- to have fun.

Today was a good day.  I walked through the halls feeling like I was on top of the world.  It appeared that everyone was smiling or waving at me.  I was tossing my smile left and right, my wave left and right.

Laughing is a good thing.  Many people overlook the importance of laughter, but it gives us energy and the will to carry on.  When you get the chance, laugh… laugh until you grasp for air, feel the muscles in your stomach twist.  After, you’ll feel like a new person, a healthier person, a happier person.

Family is a very important aspect of my life.  I’ve realized this concept in its entirety yesterday.  My mom, dad, and sister are the three most important people in my life.  What would I do without one of them?

Up until now, I’ve heard all that crap about cherishing your family and stuff because you won’t be able to get them back after they are gone and blah blah blah… But I never actually THOUGHT about all of that until recently.

Every day, every minute, every second that I spend with my family members is important because what will happen if an “accident” happens one day and I lose one of them… I’d regret…  I’d regret not being nice enough to them, not listening to them, not talking enough to them.  Regret… that’d be all I feel.  And it’s the worst feeling a person can experience.  Regret is not even something that we can just “move on from.”  People always say that they live with no regrets… they just move on and try to improve their future.  That’s a lie because no one can just “clear” their mind of such things.  Memories stay with you forever, even if you try to escape them.

Regret, such a powerful word, an emotion we cannot avoid or surpass.  Despite the fact that sometimes we fight with the people we love most, we cannot live as if they’ll always be there the next time we decide to finally talk to them.  We must treasure those we love… hold onto them like there’s no tomorrow.  It’s the only way to keep those that we love by our side and get the most out of life.

Unfortunately, death is inevitable.  It’ll come after our loved ones soon enough, and that is the terrifying aspect of “death” himself.

I once heard someone ask, “Would you rather live a fun and exciting, but short life, or a monotonous but long life?”  I didn’t quite take in the question then… I simply overlooked the question…  But now, I’ve realized the meaning in this question.  It has dawned on me that there is nothing good about a fun, exciting life.  Sure, you get to live your life to its fullest, but what’s the point if you have to leave this world so quickly…  Is it really worth it?  To me, a monotonous life appears to be more meaningful….  Sure, there is none of that fun and drama, but there’s nothing wrong with taking your time to view the beauties of life.  A simple, slow moving, and long life.  Isn’t that ideal for someone to spend the rest of their life with the people they love the most?

My only wish is to live a long, happy life.  Even if it’s simple and boring I don’t mind.  I’d rather live simply with the most natural lifestyle a person can live.  Being surrounded by the people I love and living healthy is all I’m worried about.  Simple… Simplicity is the key to happiness.

Will my wish be granted?
