Love Is Not A Whisper Or A Weakness




September round up. It was a rough month: tears, long distance calls, hangovers, sleepless nights, Oreos.... I got into Oreos. Random.

Being in our mid 20's is a weird limbo. We're out of school but might not be ready to settle down. Friends move away, or get married, have kids and become hermits, and we have to make an effort to meet and make new friends. We have choices to make: Get a job we love but pay peanuts, or a job we don't mind that pay our bills; to move for our career or move for someone elses' career. We learn that even if we offer to give up our most valuable, sometimes it's not enough, or it's not up to us.

But we are blessed with good health and fortunate to live in our society. And I do believe that things happen for a reason. "what comes easy won't last and what lasts don't come easy".

  21. I couldn't agree more! Mid 20's are crazy. I call it the quarter life crisis! It'll all work out though. Great pictures. xo, Julie

  26. Weird how you say that about the 20s, since my parents and teachers tell me that's when we should be living our lives and having fun, but everyone I know in their 20s say that it's not as great as they thought it would be. I wonder what my 20s will be like. Anyways, lovely photos per usual. (:

  27. Hey there fashionista!! I am super in love with the dress you're wearing on the 2nd outfit! I wish I'm as sexy as you :)

  28. Ah such is life in your 20's...I'm almost out of school and have that exact impending problem: will I find my dream job but be a hobo because of the salary, or do something that is OK but at least pays the bills. Plus it's hard to keep that shopping habit at bay... speaking of which, awesome shoes in that first picture :)

  36. Good motto! =) I totally believe things happen for a reason cos there's just too many incidents that happen to me and later I realize that the "now" is so much better than the "previous".
    I like your crochet shorts and denim top the most =)

  37. Totally agreeing with that quote. And I know what you mean about life in your 20's, I'm not even out of school, but still. Not as easy as the tv shows claim :D I really like this little round up, you chose great pictures for it. Though I'm pretty mad about the last one, it made me crave for fresh berries, which impossible at the moment for me to get. :D Oh well, I'll go eat a cupcake, what's the difference? ♥ xoxo
