Don't Look Down

I haven't been very active and I apologize. It's just so hard to manage everything timewise, especially since I'm studying engineering, working.. and squeezing in time with my friends. Instagram is handy and quick, so I keep that much more updated (@coreena23).

If you follow my blog, you might notice that I usually go off topic and never just talk about fashion. I love mixing things up and have lots of stuff I'm passionate about that I enjoy sharing with you, whether it's an idea, a movie, a song, ecc.. or all of the above simultaneously. 

Today I want to quote something from the brilliant TV series "Perception", which unfortunately has reached its final episode on March 17, 2015.

"So is my glass half-empty, or is it half-full? When you look ahead in your life, are you someone that expects things to work out for the best, or do you assume the worst? When we envision the future, our rostral anterior cingulate cortex determines whether our vision will be one of clear-blue skies or dark storm clouds. But optimism and pessimism are not hardwired. By using cognitive behavioral techniques, we can overcome our natural tendency toward doom and gloom. So, what do we want to do? Do we want to dwell on the mistakes of the past, pick at the scabs of every wound? Or can we make a fresh start, be grateful for what we have, cherish our relationships? Our lives are richer when we choose optimism. And if we do, we might just see that our glass is a little more full than we thought"

"When we face the hard decisions, we often have to choose between the emotional response and the rational one. And more often than not, it seems emotion wins the day. Some of us act out of greed.  Others are motivated by rage or revenge. So, if our feelings are that destructive, maybe it's better to hide them, tamp them down, keep them from boiling over. Maybe. But can we really deny our emotions forever? Sooner or later, will they bubble to the surface and force us to act?"

These shots were taken on January 11 2015, when I decided to dye my hair tips lavender.

Is your head spinning?
Is your heart racing?
Is there fire in your veins?
Are your bones burning?
Is your skin yearning?
