Everyone is going to hate me for this post

Ever since I can remember, people have always lumped me in the categories SLIM, THIN and even ANOREXIC-LOOKING. I would have the hardest time buying clothes for me, because most of the stuff in the ladies’ or teens’ wear would be too big. The clothes I did have, could survive for years, mainly because my size rarely changed.

But it seems that all those years are finally catching up to me.

It’s funny really. It was always a happy day back then whenever i got on the weighing scale and saw that I had gained  a pound or two, and I would still wish to gain more. But now, I dread looking at where the spindle lands on.

Call me OA. Call me shallow. Call me a subscriber of today’s twisted perception of beauty. Most people call me thin even to this day. But who was ever happy whenever they found out that some of their clothes don’t fit them anymore? That you couldn’t wear your favorite shirt anymore because it was getting a little too tight around their arms? That you couldn’t wear those shorts you always looked so great in because you can’t close the button anymore?

I could always try blaming architecture for being such a sedentary course. Or maybe thesis work. Because what else am I going to do to not completely lose my energy while slaving away during those sleepless nights?

Thesis food stash. Unhealthy I know but our stove was broken and I couldn’t cook anything.

I could also blame Lando for always inviting me out to dine in such yummy places and letting me eat as much as I want.

But weirdly enough, I can’t blame any of them. Why? Because even if I’m at the heaviest I’ve ever been, I think I’m also the happiest I’ve ever been. Why? Because of the exact same things that I’m trying to blame my weight gain on. My friend, Sasha said it best in her Facebook status. “A tell-tale sign of happiness: when you’re gaining pounds – and lots of it.”

Do I want to get thin? Not really. After posting all those photos of me during my years in college, I think I like the way I look now better.  Though I definitely won’t be going on  weight loss diet anytime soon, I think I do need to start eating healthier, and doing regular exercise. I don’t want to aim to get thin again; I just want to be healthy. And stay happy. <3

And hopefully buy pretty, new clothes that will fit me. Haha!


At the very least, at least my fingers don’t grow fat. Not yet anyway, which is why I decided to start a new project!

I have so much junk lying around at home (and I’m sure everyone else does too) so I thought, “Why not use them?” I got inspired by Reese’s rings, which is why I decided to make some of my own! I got some plain rings from my lola, and here are some of the finished works so far.

waw ring

I have a ton of more odds and ends collected, and I’m looking forward to making more, wee! :3

Allie has seen many a dust bunny in her lifetime, most of them in her dorm room. She is often mistaken as a 13-year old, further intensified by her weird fashion choices that mostly involve cutesy patootsie rings, colorful knee high socks, and ribbons and bows in her hair. She dreams of waking up one day and finding herself as a character in Star Wars. Preferably a jedi. With a purple lightsaber.
