Nothing to do? Let’s play with make-up!

      Had absolutely nothing to do, so since my make up gear were here I made “a wound” and started taking photos. Hope you enjoy!

It’s like picking your breakfast cereals based on color instead of taste ~

I want to remind all of you awesome people something. Even though we pursuit these awesome, fit bodies, I wish to people to understand to look through the outside barrier when it comes to making friends and getting to know someone. Sometimes the most beautiful thing is wrapped inside this shell that doesn’t do justice on it.

I’m lucky. I have so many variety of friends that I can wish for: tall, short, fit, voluptuous, smart, geek, rocker, emo… Even have a few friends with a disabilities and they rock my world everyday. And I thank all of them for being who they are. Even though we wouldn’t get a long with all the subjects and things we discuss, I still like them a lot. They are awesome, way cooler than their outside form and we can agree to disagree things and still be friends.

“That’s always seemed so ridiculous to me, that people want to be around someone because they’re pretty. It’s like picking your breakfast cereals based on color instead of taste.”

Power of the smile

Sometimes even the smallest gesture can make your day. This happened to me today:

I went to buy my meds at the local drug store. I have had pretty awful two days so far. From the moment I saw my pharmacist I felt good. She smiled at me, told me “Good morning” and did some chitchat which usually doesn’t happen here. Trust me. I was amazed but smiled back, handed my prescriptions and KELA card.  She was so bubbly through the whole process. She told me that she’s gonna go and fed the meds and I just nodded and look at my watch.

Oh there’s so many things to do…  

Then she came back and started putting those label things on the bottles.  Then suddenly she asked me: “Are these you’re only drugs for RA?”

I looked at her and said “Yes.” She smiled at me back, this really wide smile and told me “Oh! That is so good, isn’t it?”

I was so baffled by her smile and the reality that she threw at me: Things could be worse.

I nodded and said yes. After a little silent moment I told her that many of my friends have the biologic drugs and they are whole different category to mine.

“Oh yes they are. So expensive and everything. But if this suits for you and it doesn’t ’cause any side effects it’s great! Glad that it’s working with you.” Her kindness made me feel stupid. I must have looked when I came to her station like the whole world stinks. And she was happy and kind towards me, even though my hard shell that I had put on me.But she changed it. I smiled. Smiled for the first time in days. I felt good although I had the stress banging my head with hammer. I paid my meds, thanked her and left.

Be nice to someone. Smile. Care. It can seriously make someone’s day.

Winter is out there.


I prefer winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape. Something waits beneath it; the whole story doesn’t show.
Andrew Wyeth 


Had pretty bad day. Didn’t get any sleep last night and the whole morning went by me looking at it from the passenger seat. Although got some squats done, it was pretty much that. Let’s hope that next week brings me more WO’s and smiles.

Fire ~


The most powerful weapon on earth is the human soul on fire.
Ferdinand Foch


There is an electric fire in human nature tending to purify – so that among these human creatures there is continually some birth of new heroism. The pity is that we must wonder at it, as we should at finding a pearl in rubbish.
John Keats


Heat cannot be separated from fire, or beauty from The Eternal.
Dante Alighieri
