Or have ever been apologetic for “overanalysis” – firm in my belief that those who accuse others of overthinking don’t really think enough.
There is no glare produced by second, third, or fourth thoughts. There is, of course, the matter of urgency. And of seizing opportunities at the right moment.
Hence, gut feel is also important, especially for those times that – no matter how fast you think – decisions have to made before conclusions are drawn.
Is this an excuse for me to always overpack on my trips? Lol, maybe. Of always neurotically trying to keep all bases covered? I am honest enough to admit that I don’t know everything, and that much is out of my hands.

So about this post’s title: yup, that’s (dog) shit right behind me. Thought I would have blocked it from view, but my mischievous photographer likes catching me off-guard.
No, I didn’t just step on the mound of censored earth. Honestly, I don’t remember what inspired this expression on my face.
It rained so hard last night that I thought my flight would be cancelled. Flood entered the house. I guess I was asking for it since I did just buy my first pair of rubber boots.

The most obvious of which is that I have finally been able to get a haircut. Now I no longer have to wear a beanie and my bangs no longer poke my eyes – my aspirations for a hipster slick back be damned!
Say hello to my new old Getta Grip boots, which if I’m not mistaken is one of the lines of Dr Martens.
I thrifted this Beams Plus coated canvas and suede bag on the same day as the shoes – on the holiday last Thursday.
Bought the bag at a neighborhood used goods store, which was surprisingly spacious, not to mention well-edited.
Unlike the the weekend, which was jammed packed of activities (not that they weren’t planned in advance).
Went back to my favorite places in Quiapo and Divisoria to restock on components for my jewelry business, and to buy newfound stones and baubles. I always make it a point to wear boots whenever I rush through the crowded streets of Manila so I wouldn’t be too precious about what I’m stepping on.
Saturday night was movie date night with the boyfie, while I went to the office on Sunday afternoon before proceeding to Greenhills after for more sourcing. Yes, you could say the weekend is just like the Beams bag I thrifted – packed and brimming with things.
