I Want...

So, this morning, I sat down with the intention of making a list of all the things that I want in my life. I got my pen and paper out, sat down, and was super excited to start it. So I sat there thinking, and thinking.. and thinking.. and... nothing. I had no clue of what I actually wanted in my life! Now, I know I am a pretty indecisive person (like super-mega extra indecisive), and I can't make a decision to save my life.. But really? I couldn't even make a list of things that I want?

Then it hit me: I really have no clue of what I actually want for my life! And because I've never been able to point out exactly want I truly want out of life, I haven't been able to live to my full potential!

Given: I'm only eighteen and I have a (hopefully!) long life ahead of me--plenty of time to make decisions and lists. But for now, I've decided to start thinking about what I truly want to do and how I want my life to go! Well, until next time!

My wallet's been missing for two days. Problem is, I have no idea where or when I lost it exactly. It could've been either at two of my friends' houses, my friends' cars, or at this hotel my friend had her birthday in. And to make matters worse, I may or may not have been slightly intoxicated during the time that I lost it. Now the main problem is: all my cards (Civil ID, driver's license, some credit cards) are in that wallet.

For the past 24 hours, I've been freaking out not knowing where the hell it could've gone to. I called my friends and asked if they've seen it, I've looked all over my house, called the hotel, and still, NOTHING! I'm definitely someone that tends to have the worst reactions in times like these, so it comes as no surprise that I haven't been the most calm-and-collected person around. And having my parents on my ass does not help at all. I can't drive (because of the no license part), I don't feel like going out anywhere because I keep hoping someone will find it and deliver it to my house.. 

Personally, I'd much rather prefer using the power of positive thinking and all that jazz in order to make the wrong things in my life go right; this being no exception. I've taken every necessary step possible but reporting my wallet missing in order to find my wallet. So going on Google (my best friend in many situations), I've found a couple ways that might help me utilize the the Law of Attraction to finding my missing item. Now, I know you're probably thinking, "this girl is out of her mind. The Law of Attraction won't actually do anything", and maybe, just maybe, it might be a little far-fetched. But I'm telling you, I have full faith that this will work. At least if it doesn't work, my mind is a little bit calmer than it was an hour ago. 

NOW TO MY CONCLUSION:: Positivity is the only way to attract the good things in life and to get what you want, no matter how big or small. To some, losing my wallet might seem like such a petty thing to be fussing over, but to me (at the moment anyway) it's a pretty upsetting event that I wish hadn't happened. I swear, if I can just find my wallet in my house and feel like a complete and total idiot, I'd be totally happy with that! But until then, I'm going to continue to be positive and have faith that my wallet will be found!

Dress Dilemma

dress, topshop

About a month ago, I went shopping for clothes for spring break. So, I walked into Topshop, and Lo-and-behold, this gorgeous emerald blue, cutout, chiffon dress captures my attention and urges me to try it. Now, mind you, I had no intention whatsoever of buying the dress, but my curiosity got the best of me, and there I was, 5 minutes later in the dressing room trying on one of the prettiest I've ever tried on.
But, here's the problem. It was 95KD (£175.00 online here).. wayyy over what I'm use to spending on any single article of clothing. 

I take a picture, send it to my mom, and the end conclusion was: I bought the dress. Now, here's the real problem: my living environment isn't exactly open to cleavage-bearing, cutout dresses.. So I basically needed to find a place to wear it so my conscience wouldn't kill me.

Basically my dilemma is not knowing how and where to wear this ridiculously expensive (or at least in my mind, expensive) dress! Now there definitely will be occasions where I'm going to end up wearing it eventually, but I'm pretty sure it won't be for another while longer..

Until next time!
