Short shorts for Short-legged Girls

As I was going out to meet my friends, my mom asked me why am I wearing shorts. I told her these reasons:

1. My pants won’t fit me anymore. I gained weight (because there’s too much food at home and because of my health condition I can’t do excercise).
2. It’s too hot to wear pants.
3. I’m much comfortable wearing shorts.
4. Lastly, pants don’t really fit my legs because they are short.

Too bad for people like me with short limbs, wearing pants would make people notice how short-legged you are. That’s why when I have the chance not to wear pants, I wear shorts, skirts, or a dress.
Yes, sometimes it’s a bit uncomfortable showing much legs but sometimes you’ve got to know the right clothes for you.

When you’re a short person, limit clothes of long length like long dresses.
When you’re dark, I suggest that you should not wear bright or neon colors. It just doesn’t seem to match.
When you’re a tall girl and you wear short shorts, damn, there’s too much legs to expose.
When you’re horizontally challenged, try to wear the perfect blouse with the right fit – not too tight and not too puffy.

Fashion is just a game of mix-and-match.
The perfect top with the perfect shoes. Putting the right amount of accessories to match your outfit.

Don’t overdress. Just wear something comfortable…
Or how about this, wear something that defines you.

Sometimes, the clothes that you wear presents the type of personality you have.

But remember, there are times that we get overwhelm we the design of clothes thinking it would be right for us, well, think twice. Sometimes, the perfect clothes in our eyes is not really that much perfect when you wear it.

No matter how much we want it, there are things that just won’t fit, things that don’t fit in our lives. #HugotMuch

Perspective

image In crowded areas, we usually get bumped with other people or even get trapped in the middle of a swarm of human beings. Sometimes when we are in a rush and there are alot of people in your way you can’t easily pass through. And that’s jus makes you annoyed. In situations like these, there are three things that you could do: 1. You can just let yourself get stuck in a crowd and go with flow. Then, you have to be patient. 2. For some careless people, they push through the crowd without even acknowledging the people they hurt along the way. 3. And for some awesome people, they look far ahead the crowd to know where they’re going and how to get through the traffic, just like how ninjas do. I hate crowded places except if it’s a concert or a party. I hate assemblies and lines. That is why I am one of those awesome people. I don’t like waiting, so what I do: I side in my way through the crowd and use my awesome reflexes.I look at the whole panorama view just to see who’s infront of me and where to slide through just to get out of the crowd. Awesome, right?!! Sometimes in life when we look too closely, we can’t see what lies infront of us. You gotta take that step back to understand life as a whole. Every little detail matters. Let’s learn to appreciate it. Don’t let yourself get stuck in the middle of the crowd. Learn how to move then you’ll see great things beyond…

Fears and Doubts

You will not learn how to walk unless you take the first step.– Dick Acenas

At this point, I feel scared. I’m now in my last year in College, studying Bachelor in Secondary Education Major in English. Part of the requirements is to have the Practice Teaching. We are designated to a public school where we are going to teach for a whole quarter, in our case, in the first quarter. Me and some of my classmates share the same feeling. We keep asking this question to one another.

Are you ready???

And I think no one has ever said “Yes, I am ready.” It’s kind of scary to think that I’m going to be an actual teacher with real students. I am going to be their source of knowledge.

What If they ask me questions I cannot answer? What if they will not understand the lesson? What if I have a poor approach? What if my students are too difficult to handle?

WHAT IFS are just going to make you mad. You doubt of the possibility that you can make it. What If you did the right choices in life? What If you didn’t think that you can’t do it? Would you get into where you are now?

My dad quoted me that phrase above when I told him about how I am feeling about it. He just told me “No one started from the top. You can’t move on by thinking.” He is right. You cannot always live by just thinking about all the possibilities and the negatives. ‘What Ifs’ are only for cowards who don’t believe in themselves. Why don’t we say ourselves these words?

YOU ARE GOOD.

YOU CAN DO BETTER.

YOU CAN DO IT!

You just got to believe in yourself… everything will be possible
