Hello everyone. Yay! I finally got around to making another entry on My Happy Project series. I was inspired to do this by The Happy List tag (?). Last July has been hella crazy month for me. I’m glad it’s over and I’m glad it happened, too. It was hectic and fun at the same time. 😀 Without further delay, here’s my list of things that made me happy recently.
*Got Ears Pierced Again…
I’m not talking about another set of piercings though! 🙂 I got my ears pieced when I was a kid but since I’m not a fan of wearing earrings, it just closed as time passed. After so many years, I decided to get them ears pierced again. No photo for proof though. Sorry. Can’t take decent ear photos. 😦
*Fun Beach Activity
As I’ve mentioned previously, I’m currently taking classes right now. Our class had an event at the beach for our Personality Development module. It was a super long and stressful day because it was all short notice so we went insane with the preparations. I volunteered to make the program for the event and ended up having to volunteer myself to do the opening speech for the program, too.
We spent the whole day at the beach but didn’t really go swimming, which is totally ironic. We just spent the rest of the afternoon after our program singing karaoke and dancing, me swaying 😀 It was a public resort so there were quite a lot of people around the area, who probably thought we were all drunk but we didn’t have a drop of alcohol on us.
Some of my classmates and I didn’t go home until it started raining, so we had to walk under the rain for a couple minutes. It ended up raining soooo hard that there was a power outage by the time I got back to the city. I had agreed to meeting my family that night so they picked me up from somewhere and we went to the mall. That was the first time I went to the mall drenched in rain. The lady guard looked at me funny when she gave me a pat-down. 😀
In another one of our modules, we had a fine dining event where we had to dress up and doll up. The stress I had leading up to this event was beyond me mainly because I hate looking for a dress. Hours prior to the photos above, I had a mini meltdown because I hated the dress I got. Haha 😀 But! It all worked out.
Here’s me getting my hair and makeup done. The MUA put on pink lipstick on me at first. I loved it but somehow I didn’t feel me looking at the mirror so I asked him to change it. Out of all the mirrors in the venue, silly me went ahead to take an OOTD photo in the dark area of the venue. By the way, this is my first OOTD photo, believe it or not. 😉
A few days before my formal event, I went to look for the perfect footwear for that said day. It was an awesome timing when we went to the mall because there was a huge sale. Huge as in BUY 1 GET 1 huge. Two pairs of sandals for just 600 pesos, which is around US $12 give or take. Cool, right?!? I got four pairs even though I only needed one. I gave one pair to my cousin (not in the photo) and I gave the gray one to my mom.
I wore the white one to the event which was probably one of the best decisions in my life. JK. Seriously, it was not a mistake choosing that pair. It was comfy and it made a clumsy person like me pretty steady. I was able to dance and run around without tripping over in it.
The first and last time I went to a club, I was 16. Ssshhh… That moment I knew I hated it and didn’t bother to go back. However, not wanting to waste my dress and makeup after our formal dinner, my classmates and I went clubbing. It was fun! And I felt free after a long time. I never thought I’d one day dance in public sober but I did!!! And I congratulate myself for that. 🙂
Class ended earlier last Saturday so we got pizza! I’m not a very sociable person so it’s nice to go out with new people once in a while to bond over pizza, small talks, and laughter. Had a fun afternoon with these people.
Well, that concludes My Happy Project for now! Those are the recent events in my life. It’s been fun and I had fun writing about it, too. 🙂 Until next time!!! Oh! If you’re interested, here’s a link to my previous My Happy Project entry. Thanks for reading. Bye! 🙂
