The irony of life is that when you are young, you want to be all grown up. Then when you are all grown up, you just want to be young again. I always tell my friends who are still studying in high school or in college to never rush things. Why? Because when you are working already, everything is too real. When i say real, we start to be more responsible of our own lives. Though its not a bad thing but things can get really serious. You pay your own bills, you provide for your own family or for people who depend on you. You work to earn a living, etc. One thing you will miss is the carefree days you spend with your friends or just simply to study to earn good grades. Its not as hard as young people might think. Working on the other is harder than studying. Failures can ruin lives or mistakes can cost you a job. In school we learn from our mistakes and we can move on. In the adult world there is little room to make mistakes.

When i go to Cebu on vacation, me and my friends talk about the good old times when we were just enjoying life in the most carefree form.
One thing though my life taught me is we make our own paths. We carve our own futures. Though things are completely different with how my life was back then, it doesnt mean I cant be happy with where I am now. Though sometimes I like to take a small trip down memory lane. It doesnt hurt to smile and reminisce.

This look is inspired by my high school days and my life now as a designer.

Aaahh you're killing me with your style! I love the accessories in this, they really stand out for me. There's a simplicity to the outfit, but you give it an edge that makes it something unique, as usual!
Andre Judd

Gary Baker
Aaah yes I did! My hair is now a copper/red colour! Close to my natural colour!

Awesome look Andre!!! Back to school with an edge!!!!! And the brown leather satchel is the perfect accessory for this look!! Love the volumed trousers with the high strapped boots. And the brown shirt with the studded jacket looks great together. It's smart with the button down shirt but then adding in the cut of jacket adds enough edge to comply with the rest of the look!!! And i lovvveee how you have styled your hair!! Awesome styling my dear Andre!!!

Hypedd!! :):):):)
Andre Judd

Awesome look again, I absolutely love that ring! I love how your hair is! And about what you wrote on the description; that's so true. I kinda miss the days when I was at high school, still living at my mom's house and didn't need to pay for rent or bills. :D
Andre Judd
thanks Krista!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:) glad you like it:)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Andre my friend, How do you do it? The pressure to create you place with yourself must be great! Take satisfaction that your art is worth the effort! You consistently produce amazing results and grace the rest of us with opportunity to look upon your achievement. I know you fear not and endeavor to set trends, rather than follow the rest. Kudos to you!
Andre Judd

Rad Runner
