Unexpected Drama

One time, I was paired with someone my age. I don't know what happened but then all of a sudden, we were talking about family. Her family in particular. 

She's Vietnamese. And her mother is in England. Fairly good spirited, always laughing with her friends, and it doesn't seem like she's having this kind of problem. Anyways. As we were talking about life, she said that she doesn't feel any connection to her mom at all. She said that if it weren't for Skype, she wouldn't even know how her mom looks like. Her mom left Vietnam to work in England as a nurse. Also, she said that when her mom came back to Vietnam for a short vacation, she wasn't able to meet her because she's in Japan. And for some reason, she was okay with it. 

I was like so sad for her that time and just confronted her with, "can't really do anything about it". And she agreed. As much as I know deep in my heart that her mom only did it for her family's welfare, I so much understand where this girl is coming from. I guess it's really better to be with your kids while they're growing up as much as possible. As I believe that this woman is really doing her best, I think that her dad or somebody else brought her up well but there are others who wouldn't be like her. And the sad truth is that there's no guidance from parents or like guardians to make them an asset to the society. Anyways. That's all.

Nothing Golden about Gold

iPhone 5s in Gold may seem like a very nice thing to have. But in reality, everyone has it. When I signed up for a phone, I was asked right what color do I want my phone to be. White, black, or gold. I was like WHITE at first but on second thought, GOLD. Then my university chant haunted me. BLACK GOLD BLACK WHITE. Anyways. Not a good idea! I thought that since there's not a lot of people who have gold iPhone, I would be unique and stuff but NO. It seems like we're all thinking the same. Feeling unique lang.

The thing about gold iPhones is that it's overrated to the max!! But at least I still think that being overrated is still way better than how the iPhone 5s black looks like. Sorry for those who have the black one but I don't really like how it looks like. Of course it can only j ust be me. As always naman.
So that's what I want to say. It's kinda sad because we can't turn back time. I'll be more careful next time! That's all. I think and I strongly suggest that if you may, please get the iPhone 5s in white. Because I would have done the same and also, to even out the number of those who have the gold and the white. Or if you brave, get the black!

Did I Just Free Dobby?

This is what happened. So I borrowed socks from my workmate because I forgot to bring my own and then actually, before this whole situation, we had this locker conversation about socks. One of them cannot get a pair out of the washing machine together and then the other (in whom I borrowed from) just totally lose it period. Cannot find the other at all. 

So yeah the next day, I borrowed socks from her and apparently, it was from GAP. I wouldn't probably spend that much for socks but then again... Okay so on with the story, it was my off the next I borrowed so I didn't check my bag right away so the day after that, I thought of washing the socks and well I CANNOT FIND THE OTHER SOCK! I was like, what is this sorcery? I usually don't get this situation a lot so I was really problematic when the situation occurred. I was like, what to do? Where to buy? I then decided to go to Machida, Tokyo but then it was closed! The luck of me! Really! 

Then I went to Hashimoto and there I was able to buy that same pair. Also, I bought a simple tee in which I kind of hesitated buying but then again, 1000-ish yen for a tee is not bad for a branded stuff. So there's that. That's all! I successfully gave the socks without losing it on my way home. See yah! 

You can always tell me what you think by leaving a comment! :) And may the odds be ever in your favor.
