Is this the first time you’ll be seeing my hair in this awkward length? Maybe, maybe not? I may have posted a few photos of this in my older photos on Instagram and I know most of you wanted to ask me why I cut it this short. Some hated my short hair, actually. I’ve had friends who would say “longer hair is better on you!” or “noooo I’ve always loved your long hair!” To tell you honestly, I miss having it. I miss tying it up, putting it in a bun, whipping it back and forth? Hahaha. But I’ve accepted it. I’ve had my hair long for years now, and maybe cutting it by accident was not a bad idea at all. :)
I found myself sitting on a chair in Tony and Jackey last November. Being the fickle minded that I was, I wanted change badly. I dyed it jet black the first day I arrived in the Philippines from the US. It was merely because I felt dark(er) with my hair blonde/golden brown. We all know girls depend their moods on their hair. When you know someone’s about to get a hair cut as drastic as I did, you know they’re getting through something. Maybe I’d like to say, I’m one of them. I didn’t think about it on purpose though, and all I actually wanted was a digital perm because I had them last 2011. I had sleek and sexy curls that everyone envied (not even kidding). But what happened this time? Digital perm gone bad! Haha.
So to cut it off short (literally), my hair became super dry and frizzy. All along I thought my hair was immortal, but turns out it has a life too. I had to result it in cutting it short. I changed multiple looks in just months. But it’s hair anyway, and mine has just super powers it could grow an inch every month. But it didn’t turn out bad, did it? :) I’m actually loving it and not to mention, I had to cut it an inch shorter because I wanted my short hair look for my graduation.
After debuting my short hair on Instagram last December, it surprised me how many of my friends actually liked it! There was even one person who cut their hair short because I inspired her to and my hair was her peg. Lol. What a surprise! Anyway, what I like the most is I can *always* go back to long hair without even waiting for it to grow. Big thanks to hair extensions. I can change my look from dull to dazzling. I don’t even have to use any heat to style my hair that could damage it more. Thanks to my baby, STYL.D Hair Extensions :) You guys should check it out!
Anyway, enough of my hair! Haha! Last Saturday was my graduation day. I can’t believe I’m now an alumna of DLS-CSB. It’s such an honor to still graduate in a La Salle school and pursue a dream course. People might think BS HRIM major in Travel and Tourism Management is an easy peasy course, but it’s not. Contrary to popular belief, CSB is known as an art school and DLSU-M has business courses. One cannot drop and say that CSB is the school of those who didn’t pass DLSU-M. DLSU does not have the courses of CSB offers.
On a side note, I’ll always be proud to have the privilege to have graduated in one of the bestest schools in the Philippines, and actually the top school to have the highest ranking in employability rate. Thank you, CSB, for the experience, for serving as my window and eye opener to so many things. Thank you because you have taught me so much life lessons that cannot be found in books. I am thankful for having such generous and supportive parents. They never tried to cut off my wings to explore things on my own. They never tried to hold me down when it was risky out there. They never stopped believing in me when I did myself. Thank you. I have said this once and I’ll say it again: I may be scared, nervous, happy, depressed, and excited all at the same time. I’m not sure what’s out there. I’m not sure how cruel life could be outside school. I’m not sure what God’s plans are for me. But I know one thing: faith isn’t going to fail me.
Have a great evening, everyone :)
Animo La Salle!
