This is probably the most exciting thing that has happened to my life so far.
Last Saturday, I got featured in the Philippine Daily Inquirer's Super Section. It was about me and my dream and New York. I'm not sure what to say because I still cannot believe it. I just remember being a girl in high school who dreamed of living and going to fashion school in New York and working in the industry. Then I remember being a Business Economics major who, at times, had insane crises because I wished I were studying fabrics instead... and blogging all about it on my online journals.
Years have passed and I've graduated from Parsons and have the job of my dreams. And now, someone wrote about it and it's on the paper and on the Internet. I'm really kilig about this. I didn't think I'd be interesting enough to be written about. I mean, I believed I was a special kid because my parents made me drink Promil as a baby and the TV said kids who drank it are gifted (and you know how gullible I am). But really, I'm just a weirdo. To have this is really amazing.
I hope this story inspires other people to dream, believe, and achieve. Super cliché but it's true. I knew my dreams were crazy ambitious, and people told me to dream of something more "attainable", but I believed in what I wanted and I worked very hard to get it. So you, you go follow your dream! Anything can happen if you believe in it. (It also helps if you wish on stars and ask for guidance from the fairies)
Here is a low-quality photo of me and my dugyot face while opening my acceptance letter from Parsons after 12 hours of lining up for the PBB season 4 auditions and eventually leaving the line and my dream of being a housemate:

P.S. Now I'm working on my next crazy ambitious dream. I want to meet my crush. I know I will. Samday. (pun intended)
