The 54th Deadline: Once Again

The 54th Deadline: Once Again

It has been awhile. Well, a long while in fact. A few months to be exact. I have neglected this blog. It’s not a good practice for someone who wants to get his life put back together. It’s been a challenging eight or so years (and counting). A lot of pain. A lot of numbness. A lot of confusion. A lot of aspirations. So many emotions. So many thoughts. So much time. But yet, I keep trying. I just keep…

The 54th Deadline: Written Record

The 54th Deadline: Written Record

One particular thing I am into these days is journal writing. As dorky as that sounds, it is something that has helped me a lot. There is something about writing things by hand that is… It just brings me back to school days where everyone had to jot things down for class assignments. A regular notebook. A pen in hand… It’s nice in its own ways. In this day and age full of so much tech, it feels great to…

The 54th Deadline: Emotion Commotion

The 54th Deadline: Emotion Commotion

I need to get back into the blogging swing of things. Since considering to blog again, I wanted to set some kind of weekly schedule for the sake of consistency. I have done so before in the past. I wouldn’t really mind because it did keep me diligent with my blogging practices. I actually felt compelled to blog on a given day no matter how I felt. Maybe that is the secret. But yeah, emotions have been a real issue…

The 54th Deadline: To Begin Again

The 54th Deadline: To Begin Again

Hello there. It certainly has been awhile for this blog. I wanted to take a break from blogging months ago. I intended it to be like a short break – maybe a few days or like two weeks tops. But, one thing after another, things started to slip. I just blogged rapidly for so long. I wrote so many haiku poems day in and day out. At first, I thought I was making a real dent in my problems. Then…

The 54th Deadline: Hourglass

The 54th Deadline: Hourglass

The 54th Deadline: Regardless of failure or success, you learn. Life grants people so many chances to get it right. The sands in the hourglass keep pouring down in my mind. One spec at a time. This has been the case for a while now. My sense of “time” feels almost gone at the moment. It is an odd thing to say, but allow me to explain. A new week starts, and before I know it, the week is already over. In…

The 54th Deadline: Defeating Discouragement

The 54th Deadline: Defeating Discouragement

The 54th Deadline: Regardless of failure or success, you learn. Life grants people so many chances to get it right. “I think a big test we all face in life on a regular basis is that discouragement test. Life’s not always fair, but I believe if you keep doing the right thing, God will get you to where you are.” – Joel Osteen To defeat discouragement is hard. To give up is easy. The latter is something always looming. Life tempts us…

The 54th Deadline: Severed Ties

The 54th Deadline: Severed Ties

The 54th Deadline: Regardless of failure or success, you learn. Life grants people so many chances to get it right. “I love new places, new people, new ideas. I love cultural differences, and I’m fascinated by the truth – all the different versions of it.” – Martin Henderson The idea of severed ties is hard for me to grasp. Cutting people out of my life is something I don’t normally do. It’s not something I am comfortable with for a lot of…
