The 54th Deadline: Toward Victory

The 54th Deadline: Toward Victory

At the end of the day, it’s safe to say most people want to be winners. Yeah, well, duh. It’s obvious we all would like to be part of the winner circle if only every other time. Long ago, I was quite the fearful of winning, but let me explain. Basically, I was scared of the notion of having too much attention on me. In many ways, this was a dangerous mentality to have in terms of accomplishing things. In…

The 54th Deadline: Heart

The 54th Deadline: Heart

What is one of the reasons why I have been able to keep going despite technically enduring lots and lots of failures up to this point? Heart. Don’t get me wrong. I don’t consider myself the most tenacious person out there. I used to be a lot tougher in my own ways, but I have definitely gotten much weaker in terms of resolve. Still, I persist. I try to keep going forward, even if everything out in the world seems…

The 54th Deadline: Getting Past Obstacles

The 54th Deadline: Getting Past Obstacles

One particular mentality I really want to adopt to the maximum degree is the notion of always looking for a solution. A way in. A means to get past a wall. A way to get over it. A way to break right through if necessary. This notion is fundamental when you think about how many of us can let stupid problems stop us in our tracks. In plenty of cases, something blocking your way is only as bad as you…

The 54th Deadline: Soul

The 54th Deadline: Soul

Do you believe in the notion of “enriching” one’s soul? I do. Otherwise, what is the point of living then? If people didn’t enrich their soul, nourish it with things that make it all more meaningful and significant, we all would just be out diggin’ in some quarry. We might as well be some mindless zombies working in some factory. It is quite the luxury to me for anyone to be able to learn, grow, understand and then some. But…

The 54th Deadline: Monotony

The 54th Deadline: Monotony

I don’t get excited for days that much at the moment, and this is something that scares me. I feel like I have trapped myself in some kind of loop. It’s such a constant feeling of going through the motions. The monotony¬†is real. Very real. There are moments where I feel frustrated with myself because I can pinpoint what needs to change to shake things up. It’s the thing that frightens me more than anything else about it all. I…

The 54th Deadline: Trial

The 54th Deadline: Trial

Over the past few years, I have felt like life has been taking me along this ongoing, neverending trial of sorts. This journey has challenged me in all sorts of ways. It brought me to the brink of personal ruin. I hit my lowest points many times, and yet I still manage to stumble forward. Albeit slowly. Albeit pathetically at times. There is something about me that wants to keep going forward no matter what. Resilience? Stubbornness? Stupidity? All I…

The 54th Deadline: If I Had a Second Chance

The 54th Deadline: If I Had a Second Chance

I have been quite behind when it comes to anime shows. I used to watch a lot of them back in college when I got my first laptop. Those were the days. Just hours and hours of mindless watching. Easily captivated by random anime shows. A series could have 100+ episodes. I didn’t care. I could have it all done in days if I wanted to binge. Alas, that same feeling hasn’t returned ever since I got older. In its…
