My so called Quarter- life crisis and.. a New Phone :)

The quarterlife crisis is a period of life following the major changes of adolescence,usually ranging from the late teens to the early thirties, in which a person begins to feel doubtful about their own lives, brought on by the stress of becoming an adult. The term was coined by analogy with mid-life crisis.

Hey girlies! :) I'm still alive :) just had to do a lot of re-thinking with the decisions I made in (my hormone- driven dramatic) the past. Sorry but I felt like I was experiencing a quarter- life crisis and I thought too much about myself at that time, I felt selfish. So.. now, to summarize; I am now trying my luck to go and work abroad as a nurse but Fashion will forever be in my heart. I have to be matured about what I really want in the future and just stick with the plan that my boyfriend and I had in the first place :P (oo nag drama lang ako for awhile, hehe..), and my/ "our" salary as a nurse/s here in the Philippines would not be enough to support a family.

As on my previous post, I made that decision mainly because I didn't want to be away from my parents and my boyfriend. Definitely long- distance relationships should be faced with a lot of perseverance, trust, patience and a lot of quality time and virtual dates using different communication  and social platforms like Skype, Yahoo, Facebook etc.

I talked to a couple of my friends who are already working in the Middle East and asked them if texting through roaming is much cheaper than BBM or Blackberry Messenger. I found that BBM would be better for us so I decided to sell my Experia on and a Blackberry 9360! :) Check out the video below.

1. Slim design
2. Vibrant interface
3. Is legible for the BBM service that we'll need
4. Has a fast processor
5. Has a 5MP camera and a nice sound quality
6. Battery life with the GPS off could reach up to 3 days.

1. The images taken from the camera has a less than perfect quality
2. Blackberry's apps are limited
3. Battery life with the GPS on could reach about 24 hours only.

Overall, I still loved my Sony Ericsson Experia Mini Pro, because I could take crisp photos and blog about it on the go. I got sold on Blackberry's slim design and BBM so I guess I'll grow to love it too! Please forgive me for rambling girls, I just missed writing to express how I feel :)

How about you girls, have you experienced Quarter life Crisis too? :)


  1. Very intersting! follow each other darling?:X

  2. I was thinking of switching to BBM too.. thanks for the review. :D
