Olympics - Closing Ceremony

I watching the closing ceremonies on Sunday night and for the most part, it had the usual fanfare and glitz. Bocelli, fireworks, and dancing were beautiful, but what was up with the scene when women of all ages dressed in what appeared to be wedding gowns, started walking on stage with a calla lily-looking torch light? I found this a bit weird. Was I watching the 2006 closing ceremony or a scene out of Logan's run or a moonies mass wedding?

Wondering if, why, how

So my quest to overcoming shyness. For one, I've made an attempt at least to smile back when somebody enters the elevator. I even think this is easier than I thought. What I do wonder is how do some people manage to be so open and outspoken without even trying? It's tough being introvert in an extrovert world.

Trends trends trends

Trends - they are everywhere. You hear about them all the time whether they are wedding trends, fashion trends, or diet trends. Today I realized that what makes people follow them is the mere fact that they are trends. Besides, a trend would not be a trend unless there is a following. More importantly, though, I ask myself, why should I follow a trend. I mean when a magazine for example like Brides' magazine says that the latest trend in weddings is for brides to have this and that at their wedding. I just don't find these things compelling enough for me to want to follow them. When I go shopping, I don't necessarily look out for what's trendy, but rather what is practical fo me and my wallet!

Check out these so-called wedding trends and see if you agreee!
