i feel bad for having been a terrible blogger the past few days. i've failed to get back on your comments and post new outfit shots too. the goal when i started this blog more than a year a go was not just to share my personal style but also to connect with other stylistas in the world. of course, i've achieved that having met amazing people over time but communication is a two-way street and i wouldn't want to be the one to start disconnecting.
but aside from being busy with my day job and with my shop (www.shopyapi.com), i've been sick -- again! i feel like the most incompetent employee right now because i've missed two days of work. my herniated disc is acting up again, causing pain on my neck and head. i can't support my head for too long without leaning on the chair or lying down. two weeks ago, i experienced terrible stomach pains due to something i ate and with succeeding illnesses i've gotten, my mom commented that she feels like she's taking care of an old lady. AN OLD LADY? oh my. i look back over the 26 years of my life and realized that i have abused my body severely over the years -- since high school, i've only had an average of 4-5 hours of sleep everyday then there's heavy drinking in college, working and going to school a year before graduation, working night shifts for 5 years while playing flag football every weekend then drinking till dawn every after practice or game. i've pushed myself to the limits and this is what i get. a seemingly strong and muscular body on the outside but so fragile on the inside.
i may sound like an old lady when i say this but WE SHOULD ALL TAKE BETTER CARE OF OURSELVES. seriously. ♥
take care everyone! have a great weekend!
