Wear your dreams

Hey there! The title screams like I got myself a tattoo.  Ugh! As if! We’ve got a style solution though. One can still display a piece of one’s identity or aspiration sans getting inked by wearing a statement shirt.  Yes, my dear reader, this is my Statement Shirt Part 1 of 2 post. Apparently, we got 2 sets of shirts from the company last month. And each shirt has a lot of telling to share. So yeah, take the title literally.

The statement T-shirt trend took over the NYFW early this year. While this shirt style is not necessarily anything new, to don this versatile item has proven  to be an effective political or inspirational medium. Let’s stick with inspirational, shall we?

Visualization is indeed an empowering tool. #RhondaByrne Ever heard of the phrase, write your dreams, and they will happen? I’m a believer. Perhaps, if I wear them, the sooner they materialize. Perhaps. Thus today I decided to wear this.

perfect summer tee. oh gotta love the fabric #statementshirt #kanji #travelandmusic #liginc

The travel mantra, I bet the universe can readily provide. As for music, say let’s put that at a halt.

I have been a hermit most of my life: home-school-home-church-home. Living in recluse, books were my only tickets to travel. Westeros, Hogwarts, and Middle-Earth were my favorite destinations (Let me know yours by paying us a visit in SUE-Ueno . Bookworms are always welcome.) The cloistered lifestyle is  a safe one, and literary travel has sharpened my imagination to a great degree. However, lately, I have been figuring out how to end my hermit streak. Truthfully, I have to. After all, what better time to start ticking off items from my bucket list than now?

Hence, after a dormant sleep, the butterfly inside me has awaken. Worry not for I didn’t travel alone.

Subtle shifts for a radical change. This captain is pointing me to a new direction. His advice. I shall heed.

In my two day holiday, I visited Kanagawa, Shizuoka, and Yamanashi. The butterfly is all a flutter.

I had one wild dream- to ride Fujiyama(it was not well-thought of). Somehow the captain wanted to make it a reality. Then, he made me try the two other attractions (Do-dodonpa and Eejanaika) that I wouldn’t dare ride. Lesson of the story: RESEARCH.  Know your dream! The thrill seeker in me thought there’s only one jet coaster in FujiQ Highland. I was so wrong. What I got right though is this magical traveling shirt ( a pun of Carmen, Tibby, Bridget, and Lena’s travelling pants. HAHA)

My takeaway would be to dream big, make it happen, and enjoy every moment in between.

NEXT: Life is good

Watch for it. Adieu
