    "You're Beautiful!"

    Back in 2008 when I lived in New York me, my sister and our friend went to a store to go shopping. It was a sunny windy day. I didn't feel pretty or comfortable at all. I just felt so dull, irritated and dry all the same time because my hair is all over the place. The sun is hot...

    Unexpected Compliment

    I was buying lunch at the store today. I'd been feeling sort of gloomy all day so far, and the day didn't show any signs of getting better. The cashier, out of the blue, just said "You look nice today" It isn't much of a compliment, I know, but it brightened up the...

    It Was Nice:)

    Around 8 in the morning, I was waiting for the bus to take me to work and feeling like crap (just because). Traffic was slow, and then some guy yells out his car window, "You have really nice eyes". Totally caught me off guard :)
