Too many times have I been told by my friends that I'm living in my own world. Some complained because I don't go out with them that much. When most of my friends go to the mall nearby after school, I would go straight home, listen to music, watch movies, read, draw, scan bunches of Nat Geo photos, read about Yoshitomo Nara's life, do a research on how to escape from killer bees(shortly after re-watching My Girl) or whatever it is that I do at home. They would call me a nerd and I would shrug and send them a link to whatever article there is about being a homebody. Then when I do go out, sometimes I just go by myself. Bringing my sketchbook, a book and a camera and I would be set for a long and aimless walk around Singapore. I love my friends, I always have fun when I'm with them, but socializing can be tiring. Being surrounded by people can get pretty sickening. Although I always have so much fun when I'm with friends, when I am alone, sitting by the pool reading The Outsiders, listening to Bon Iver when it's raining, I never feel like I'm missing a thing. People are great, but I don't always feel comfortable even around those that I'm supposedly close with.
And yeah I do sometimes live in my own world, since everything around me doesn't make sense sometimes. I go to an all-girls school, and bitchiness is like a language that they, or shall I say, we all speak. I'm not a saint, I am guilty of this one too, though I 'm trying very hard not to. But some people in my school really master this language, and they can bitch about anyone for the stupidest, dumbest, pointless, and the most idiotic reasons. This doesn't make sense to me, that's why My Own World is the best place to be while surrounded by the craziness of an all-girls school. I hope I don't sound too self-righteous or anything because sometimes I let the bitchiness inside of me come out, too. Oh, heck, all humans are hypocrites anyway.
Now here are a few photos I took when I was taking my Lady Di(yup that's my lomo. Classy isn't she) out.
