Non-straight lines


I don't like dresses because they're cute. I like dresses because they're comfy and breezy. What I like, though, more than dresses, are shirt-dresses.


Of course, I wore shorts underneath as this top had a tendency to be too breezy and I'm not exactly the most behaved girl when I go out.

When I was younger, it did bother me that I was not the typical girly girl. I'd run, hop, and jump about everywhere. In short I was never mahinhin. There were times then when I'd try to behave like all the other girls: quiet, reserved and all, but I could never last more than 15 minutes.

Years later, I realize that accepting who I was and who I was not helped me accept who I am. Now, I'm comfortable with the person that I am and the person I try to be– even if that person almost always need shorts underneath dresses. Small price to pay for being yourself.

    1. Thanks Mark! Not that there's anything wrong with being mahinhin.. It's just, I never was and I've learned to accept and live with that.
