a person, thing, or situation that is mysterious, puzzling, or ambiguous
Forty years ago, the Beatles asked the world a question. They wanted to know where all the lonely people came from.
Four hundred years ago, another English guy had an opinion on being alone. John Donne. He thought we were never alone. Of course it was fancier when he said it. No man is an island entire onto himself. Boil down that island talk and he just means that all anyone needs is someone to step in and let us know we’re not alone. And who’s to say that someone can’t have four legs. Someone to play with, or run around with, or just hang out.
Four semester ago, there’s another British on his idea on being utterly alone and completely enigmatic. He never made it. No one could make it alone. Been witnessing that getting everything alone is impossible, had encourage me to begin the begin.
Fresh starts thanks to the calendar they happen every year. Just set your watch to January, our reward for surviving the holiday season. Bringing on the great tradition of new years resolutions, put your past behind you and start over. It’s hard to resist the chance for a new beginning, a chance to put the problems of last year to bed.
Who gets to determine when the old ends and the new begins? It’s not on the calendar, it’s not a birthday, it’s not a new year. It’s an event, big or small, something that changes us. Ideally, that gives us hope, a new way of living and looking at the world, a way of letting go of old habits, old memories. What’s important is that we never stop believing we can have a new beginning, but it’s also important to remember that, amid all the crap, there are a few things worth holding on to.

Denim are known as one of a timeless and must-have fashion item. It never out of the fashion spotlight. It look spectacular in all seasons and are a timeless fashion that is simple and comfortable for everyday casual wear.
How to explore denim style for a casual yet stylish looks? Take a look!
Kim Kardashian showed off her new look while out to lunch in L.A. by pairing Bebe jeans with an Elizabeth and James over-sized blouse. Ripped jeans are perfect to add up masculine touch of your style.
Sienna Miller was seen shopping with a friend in London wearing a Levi’s vintage denim vest over her dress. Put on a denim vest over a playful floral print dress to get a bohemian-chic look like Sienna. This is my all time favorite style!
Steal Kate Moss’ looks by combining skinny jeans, blazer and boots to get an androgynous yet classic style.
From Left; Rachel Bilson, Agyness Deyn, Evan Rachel Woods and Sophia Bush in Denim Jacket. Match it with vintage dress like Rachel Bilson and Evan Rachel Wood or Lolita style tier lace white dress then mix it with shocking color stocking like Agyness Deyn. Also, feel free to put it on over a one piece low cut shirt lace pants like Sophia Bush.
Spotted Katie Holmes looking comfortable wearing boyfriend’s jeans. These jeans somewhat giving an intimate impression towards the idea of wearing your man’s clothing (at least that’s what I think). The looseness signature of these jeans is perfect for everyday-casual style.
“I have often said that I wish I had invented blue jeans: the most spectacular, the most practical, the most relaxed and nonchalant. They have expression, modesty, sex appeal, simplicity – all I hope for in my clothes.” ― Yves Saint-Laurent

So what am I waiting for? Then end of 2011. Where the worst nightmares happened, mostly in a row.
I am not the nicest person on the planet. No need reminders on that fact. And I’m not even sure the changing year would change everything. Calming myself, yeah only that.
Everyday we get to give the gift of life, it can be painful, it can be terrifying, but in the end it’s worth it. Every time. We all have the opportunity to give. Maybe the gifts are not as dramatic as what happens in the movie, maybe the gift is to try and make a simple apology, maybe it’s to understand another person’s point of view, maybe it’s to hold a secret for a friend. The joy supposedly is in the giving, so when the joy is gone, when the giving starts to feel more like a burden, that’s when you stop. But if you’re like most people I know, you give till it hurts, and then you give some more.
Sometimes the past is something you just can’t let go of. And sometimes the past is something we’ll do anything to forget. And sometimes we learn something new about the past that changes everything we know about the present.
Frustration made people seeking for peace. Peace isn’t a permanent state. It exists in moments. Fleeting. Gone before we knew it was there. We can experience it at any time, in a stranger’s act of kindness, a task that requires complete focus or simply the comfort of an old routine. Everyday we all experience these moments of peace. The trick is to know when they’re happening so that we can embrace them, live in them. And finally let them go.
When we’re headed toward an outcome that’s too horrible to face, that’s when we go looking for a second opinion. And sometimes, the answer we get just confirms our worst fears. But sometimes, it can shed new light on the problem, make you see it in a whole new way. After all the opinions have been heard and every point of view has been considered, you finally find what you’re after – the truth. But the truth isn’t where it ends, that’s just where you begin again with a whole new set of questions.
Responsibilities, obligations and commitments; grown-ups’ best friends. We take one little oath, and suddenly we’re drowning in obligations. To our parents, to our colleagues, to ourselves. So we do what any sane person would do. We run like hell from our promises, hoping they’ll be forgotten. But sooner or later, they always catch up. And sometimes you find the obligation you dread the most isn’t worth running from at all.
We begin life with few obligations. We pledge allegiance to the flag. We swear to return our library books. But as we get older we take vows, make promises, get burden by commitments, to do no harm, to tell the truth and nothing but, to love, to cherish till death do us part. So we just keep running up the tap ’til we owe everything to everybody and suddenly … what the…??
Yes. Shit happens. We thought we’re being nice on someone or doing huge sacrifices only to find out that we are taken for granted. It freaks me out it lead me into paranoia. We’re all susceptible to it, the dread and anxiety of not knowing what’s coming. It’s pointless in the end, because all the worrying and the making of plans for things that could or could not happen, it only makes things worse. So walk your dog or take a nap. Just whatever you do, stop worrying. Because the only cure for paranoia is to be here, just as you are.
So no matter how many cigars you had blown, how many bottles you’d hit. Life goes on. Move your arse, open your eyes, never look back because time waits for no one. Walk, just walk..
