Starting Over.



So, I'm starting over.

I've decided to blog here now. After all, I named this site after me. (Haha). Funny thing though, this is the site I've neglected the most. Perhaps, a reflection of how I've been neglecting myself the past weeks - not sleeping enough, not eating well, doing many things all at the same time (laundry, included). Pimples are growing on my face at such a rapid rate, it's scary.

So, I'm starting over.

I redesigned this site. Mimi and I have the same background now, except that her's is happy green and mine's is sunshine yellow. Got a new header, too -- a flower girl because she reminds me of weddings. And weddings always make me cry in happiness.

I got tired of my sweet pink blog, I guess. These bright, happy colors in this site reflects my photography style. I like my photos bright and and colorful and vivid. Although one day, I would like to learn how to do muted-colored photographs the right way.

Also, I've re-edited and re-posted photos here because recently, I've been learning how to take and edit skin color. That's the part I find difficult. Sometimes, skin becomes too pink, or too brown, or too orange. I'm studying photography again. And learning new things.

Yes, I'm starting over.

And I promise I will take care of this site like I did the old one. And start taking care of myself, too.

And hopefully, when my sked isn't too crazy, post long overdue stories about my Cebu and Iligan trips. I'm craving for Jane's humba!

I'm starting over.

I haven't left comments on my favorite people's blogs (although I've been reading them) and I terribly miss them. But I will spend real quality time to savor each word they've written when I'm done with the preparation of mine's and Dan's exhibit.

I'm starting over.

And I'm glad that life is truly kind -- it allows us to start over, most times, on a clean slate.

Yes! Amen to clean slates and start overs. (I just had mine hahaha).

Even if you set your blog to plain white ate ai, we will still come back again and again. It's like visiting a friend, everything else is just a plus as long as you get to spend time with her/him.

God bless on the exhibit! Im sure it's going to be a blast!
