joannaladrido 's Thoughts:

…real pain for my sham friends.

I went out today for a routine checkup with my cardiologist and realized that I gained weight from all the holiday munching. But I don’t care… I refuse to diet and do not believe in depriving myself of the very limited food selection I have. I refuse to conform. As long as it’s not unhealthy, I won’t not eat.

Proceeded to Rockwell for a lot of retail therapy… I got 2 pcs. of fabulous John Herrera tailored blazers from Anthology and a Bebe-sque dress from Graxie by Reian Mata. If there is anything I need to cut back on, it’s shopping. But can we girls help it if the only therapy we know is that of the retail kind? Haha.

Ate dinner with the entire family at where else but CIBO since my mum was craving for Italian. Ordered Tagliate di Manzo and Pilaf di Riso. Funghi this time. Then watched Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. I love the story since i think F. Scott Fitzgerald is a genius!!! And the actors did not disappoint.

I realized how much I missed my friends. I haven’t seen them in ages and I seriously think I need a G.N.O. badly!!!!

“We pick and choose who we want to remain close to, and once we’ve chosen those people, we tend to stick close by. No matter how much we hurt them, the people that are still with you at the end of the day – those are the ones worth keeping. And sure, sometimes close can be too close. But sometimes, that invasion of personal space, it can be exactly what you need.”
