Most of the time, no one wants to be called “low” anything. But if there’s going to be an EXCEPTION, I think “low maintenance” will be our best bet! 🙂
And you betcha! I, Mikhaela Georgette, am a self-proclaimed low-maintenance girl! 😉
Not convinced? Very well. Let me tell you why The Lady considers herself low maintenance for some reasons. Haha!
Let’s start with DOES NOT REQUIRE CONSTANT PAMPERING. First word: MAKEUP! Don’t get me wrong, I’m “interested” in makeup. But you know, I don’t really “love” it (obviously, I DIDN’T say “I love makeup” in the previous sentence) that I can practically live WITHOUT it. Call me a “late bloomer” or something, but it wasn’t until I was 18 and was about to graduate college that I actually started using it. But even now, my makeup routine will always be Pressed Powder. Blush. Lipgloss (or sometimes when I’m in the mood — Lipstick). Tapos! I don’t even use concealer or mascara. Sometimes, eyeshadow gets in the mix, but that’s mostly reserved for very special occasions. Yung tipong pang-debut or wedding! Heck, I didn’t even wear makeup during my first Junior-Senior prom! I don’t even wear makeup when I go to work — at least NOT everyday! Wahahahaha! Loser, much! 😛
But anyway, the Cleanse. Tone. Moisturize. rule every night before dozing off will. always. be. a. NON-NEGOTIABLE! And the occasional visit to your trusted derma is a must, too. But then again, I don’t even visit the derma that often! Ah basta! I-try niyo nalang, pwede ba?! Hehehe.
Now for the next word (or in this case, a phrase): PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION! Yebah! When it comes to “going places,” I actually call myself a “versatile passenger.” Yes, I drive. But I also commute! Be it a bus, jeep, taxi, LRT/MRT, at kahit padyak pa ‘yan, game ako diyan! As long as I get to and fro my destination SAFELY, walang arte-arte si Mikhaela Georgette noh! Kung pwede nga by horse, why not? Feeling prinsesa pa’ko kung magkataon! 😀
Now let’s move on to ONE WHO IS GENUINELY HAPPY TO ENJOY THE COMPANY OF OTHERS. I guess being “someone who is easy to please” is included with this one! But then again, who needs “pleasing” when you’re lucky enough to have AWESOME PEOPLE (e.g. family and friends) to spend your time with? No need to spend moolah. Kahit simpleng kwentuhan lang, solve na’ko! Actually that’s one of my most favorite parts when I hang out with those dear to me… Yung tipong hindi mo na napapansin yung oras sa sobrang enjoy nilang kasama! At dahil diyan, *drama mode* I LOVE YOU MI FAMILIA Y MI AMIGOS! Thank God that we’re all “low maintenance” in our own unique ways! Mwah, mwah, mwah. ♥
But wait, I also have a NON-NEGOTIABLE with this one: “ME” TIME! Sometimes, you need to be alone… to reflect… to feel “independent” (if you aren’t already!)… and TO GENUINELY ENJOY THE COMPANY OF Hotties from Faraway Lands — ergo, MOVIES! Plus BOOKS and THE INTERNET! Seriously, I can watch a movie in a movie theater all by myself or sit in a quiet corner inside a coffee shop (or milk tea place) with a book in hand, and it’ll still be all good for meee! Thanks a lot to artistic licenses and whatnot. Hahaha!
Just a little DISCLAIMER, though. I may be one of the most low-maintenance girls you’ll ever meet… BUT I’m also one of the girls with the “HIGHEST STANDARDS” you’ll ever know! Paaak!
Having said that, paki turuan niyo na nga lang akong maging HIGH MAINTENANCE, please? HA HA HA =))
