It’s 1 AM as I am writing this and though this may not be the best time to talk about this since I might end up scaring myself, processing the photos I took earlier brought to mind the idea of being on the “fringes of mortality.” Have you ever had those moments when you’re drifting in between reality and dreams?
I had them frequently before. I think scientists call those instances “sleep paralysis.” It’s precisely that moment in between waking and sleep when you’re frozen on the stop and can’t make your body move. In Filipino, we call it bangungot. For me, this paralysis is worsened by the experience of seeing a figure walking towards me. One time, I even felt myself coming out of my body and seeing myself asleep. Of course, my mind could have made that one up and for all I know, I was only dreaming about the experience. Nevertheless, it’s a curious event that makes me nervous even at present.
Anyway, before I really scare myself silly, let me move on the frivolous part of this post. That is, my outfit yesterday:
This photo came about by accident after using the “wrong” setting on my camera. I liked how it came out so much. Didn’t really edit it anymore.
Guess what I’m holding? It’s the Smart Rocket Chic Plug It! Haha Since I was already carrying it around, why not include it in the photo?
Another ghostly photo – intentional this time 🙂
What I’m wearing:
– Sheer button down blouse from Gelibean Couture
– Black fringe skirt from Bazaar
– Mesh Booties from Parisian
– Necklace from Aizylim
What about you? Have you ever experienced sleep paralysis? Share your story with me so I don’t feel so alone?
P.S. I’m going to have a really early day tomorrow. Say hello to eye bags!
