Comments on: 9 Things People Never Told Me A beauty blog blooming with fresh makeup reviews, swatches and beauty tips from your friendly neighborhood beauty addict Thu, 29 Sep 2016 07:10:44 +0000 hourly 1 By: Marlo Fri, 06 May 2011 18:56:06 +0000 I love this post! I know it’s a little bit older but I love your blog! I’m also Filipina and it was ingrained in me to do things that made money but no passion i.e. be a nurse, doctor, lawyer, etc.

Now I’m going boldly where I have always wanted to go. I’m planning on taking my yoga teacher training certificate in October of 2011. It’s scary to make changes in life but like you I never felt like an adult living in an adult world. I still feel like a kid living in an adult world who’s good at pretending to be adult like! 🙂

Thank you for this – – – your posts are very inspiring. And oh yea, nipple hair, yes I know exactly what you mean – – – embarrasing but I’m thinking it’s more common than we all realize. 🙂

Thanks Karen.

anyways, I followed a link on one of my new favorite sites (college fashion) and came to this. The first thing on your list is a major thing in my life- my hair is soo curly that I don’t even try to straighten it unless I have two hours to spare before a major event. It still drives me crazy, and I still have not fully embraced it )(especially with the heat I deal with), despite family friends with curly hair constantly telling me to embrace my curls.
One thing that I would add to the list is something I’ve had to learn these past couple of years- your path may be changed by things beyond your control, but the destination only changes if you want it to. Four years ago I never woud have thought that I might have to stop dance, or that I’d end up starting college at a community college, but I still know I can make it to a career I love- it will just take me a bit longer than others.
I loved the article!

I have recently migrated to Canada from the Philippines where I spent 31 years of my life (though I’m not Filipino). Most parents would think medicine, law, engineering and nursing and the like are the jobs that would provide a prosperous future. Coming from a 3rd world country, these are the professions that provide a way out of poverty. To be more precise, it’s almost a ticket to go to a more developed country and start a better life. What they don’t understand is, you are already in a developed country so you are not bound to these limited professions anymore.

Just my 2 cents 🙂

Really loved your post! Specially #5. My dad is from India and my career options were medicine or engineering and, when I tell people, they don’t belive me! 🙂

By: Sabrina Wed, 07 Jul 2010 08:18:26 +0000 Hi Karen, I’m late to commenting on this one but I really love this one, especially #4. I just turned 29 and hardly feel “grown up.” Thought I’d feel adult once I got married, but no … lol, DH will turn 30 this month and he definitely doesn’t feel grown up either. Glad to know I’m not the only one.
