So I shaved my side again. In love. But I’m gonna write about something more important.

On Tuesday I had a bit of a breakdown. In front of my boyfriend. I literally couldn’t stop crying really hard. It came out of nowhere. I remember driving home a few hours before and being really happy. But then suddenly I crashed down hard. Probably because I had the genius idea to stop taking my medication for a few months.

Everything was fiiiinnnneeeeeee. So great. OMG chelsea you are doing so great you don’t need those pills. Wrong bitch.

People just LOVE to tell people with mental illnesses that they don’t need pills. “It’s a spectrum we r all a lil bipolar”. NO. Some people literally need mood stabilizers to function normally. I’m one of those people.

NEVER BE AFRAID TO TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF NO MATTER WHAT PEOPLE SAY TO YOU. If you are in need of help, don’t be ashamed. And try not to get discouraged when it takes some time. It took me like 8 years to get the right meds. And I am a functioning, employed, bachelor degree having woman in a great relationship with an amazing man. It’s possible, but it’s not easy.

I asked my boyfriend for help when I had my breakdown. He’s been incredibly supportive and makes sure I take my meds. It’s not embarrassing, it’s just a medical condition. It’ll be okay and you can get through this.

I hope you’re all feeling great lately!! Remember to never be ashamed for who you are cuties.

I shot this outfit last night after I had to run out and grab a few things to make dinner. You can probably tell from the majority of my outfit posts that I love to dress up. I always like to put effort into styling my outfits because it’s something I actually enjoy doing. As vain as it sounds, I like to look nice, and I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that. 

I have my lazy/dress down days though and this was one of them. I tried to add a little more interest to the outfit by layering on a button up and scarf which helps to make it more than your usual leggings and sneakers outfit. Getting to stay comfy is just an added plus.

Tiger Day
September 16, 2014- Tuesday

Since classes were suspended yesterday, Tiger day was moved today! Meaning, the Thomasian Family is required to wear their yellows, tiger prints, and accessories to show their support for the triumph of The Salinggawi Dance Troupe wherever they may be. Since UST yellow shirts were too mainstream and I’m not really fond of wearing shirt + pants + kicks combo (which I think, looks a little boyish), I decided to wear an animal print sheer top which I took from my mom’s closet, matched with gray pants, black snake skin satchel, white undergarment all from Forever 21, and black sandals (my favorite, since it can be matched with almost anything) from Zalora.ph.

Dressing up in school seems like a really new thing since we all have our uniforms to wear everyday (take note, without a wash day) and my blockmates call me “Makati Girl” Hahaha, stereotype of living in the business district. Anyway, Kat drove me til Taft (like what we do everyday, except during Wednesdays since it’s coding day) I’m really thankful to have her! She’s like, saving my life everyday from the hold-up fx thing in Manila. Hooray for today!
