VISTA #14: Little things

Hey you guys!

It’s been a very very long time since I post VISTA here! So I want to post something related to my birthday.

Well, my birthday was on June but I wanna share something that I find really important. My close friend kept asking me what I want for my birthday. Months away from my birthday. As someone who rarely has desire or wish in anything really, I was really confused what to say. I kept telling him nothing but he kept asking me what I want. So I told him, “well, I’ll let you know if I suddenly want something.”

In the end, I didnt want anything.

I rarely want a physical thing to have. I dont buy new gadgets often but I usually just wait for my brother to give me his old phone. But I always find time is the most valuable thing that someone can give me. Well, my love language (in terms of receiving) is quality time (followed by act of service and physical touch in number 2). So, I asked my friend to give him his time for me. I want him to be with me the whole day.

Simple isnt it? But very expensive. Can you imagine what can you do for 24h? A lot. And I asked him to give me his time, wow my present was super expensive.

He was confused and said that it’s what we usually do at least every week.

There’s nothing special in it. I always hang out with you especially during the weekend.

Well yea, but for me it’s what makes it so special. I always appreciate his effort to spend time with me every week. For me, that’s a lot already.

So what did we do on my birthday?

The usual. Just hang out, watching movie and have lunch really. Well the only difference was that I bought something from my favorite restaurant and ate it at home with him.

So yea, I pamper myself a lot during my birthday with friend companionship and take away food.

Oh and of course, video call with my parents and brother! We did this small celebration with donut as my cake and I blew the candles during the call. I felt so happy and blessed.

Well, happy birthday to me!

Cheers,

Kemmy

#15 In the comfort of my bed (and coffee, of course)

Hey, you guys!

Sooooo our #15 post is about running away. PFFT. If someone describes themselves as an avid reader, then I would describe myself as an avid on the run person (???) doesnt make sense, Kem. Yea, I know. I think I have mentioned my bad traits of running away from things frequently before (you could check it here). Uh well sorry. In my defense, I need my alone time. Hmph.

Nah. I just like being alone most of the times. At this point running away from problems become a lifestyle huh Kem? Hahaha. When I run away, most of the times I just need some (a lot) alone times or wanna cool myself down.

But where do I usually go? You got it right.

My room.

But if I could choose any place in the world, where do I wanna run away to?

Well, yea. My room.

I’m pretty simple actually, especially when it comes to “running” away. I just like to stay in my room, doing anything that makes me happy (usually sleeping. damn i just love sleeping) and drinking my coffee. Nothing over the top or special like running away to another city or country. Nah. As long I have my pillow, blanket and coffee, then I am all good.

Cheers,

Kemmy

#14 Fast Fashion Style?

Hey you guys!

Number 14 in the list of the writing challenge is describing my style. Sooo I would like to take the opportunity to talk about fast fashion. I believe many of you know what fast fashion is and how it is really bad for the environment.

Sadly, I would describe my style as fast fashion.

No, not because I buy clothes pretty often according to trends from catwalks/influencers on social media so I can be the girl who get the new hot look. But because I mostly buy from apparels that are apparently known for big players in fast fashion industry.

I’ll be honest that I dont always buy the most sustainable choice in the market. Simple, because it costs more money. I’m a student that have no income but still have bills to pay. Oof. I tried to at least buy none or at least less clothing from fast fashion brands, at least the one that I know. Yea yea, I am not very educated on this stuff really. And yea, today I just found out that some brands, which I thought are not fast fashion brands, apparently ARE fast fashion brands (RIP English for repeating same words again and again lol).

Wow didnt see that coming! And now, most of my stuffs are from fast fashion brands.

Well, I dont buy clothes/shoes etc often really because I dont like to have many stuffs. But still. Not very proud of my fashion style description. Eh. But I’m planning to learn more about it and hopefully will not buy from them again. Soooo it’s a good start I guess?

Cheers,

Kemmy
