The 54th Deadline: Action

The 54th Deadline: Action

When push comes to shove, I accept that I have to be my boss at times. As much as I would like to have a life coach/person who can dictate where I need to be or what I need to do, I ultimately must be the one in charge. After all, I am steering my ship. If I happen to crash into something, then it is my darn fault for not being extra wary. Lately, I have forced myself to…

The 54th Deadline: The Frog in the Well

The 54th Deadline: The Frog in the Well

Last night, I watched an anime where a character said this particular idiom: “The frog in the well.” The saying refers to a frog that spends its whole life inside of a well. All the frog knows is what is inside of the well – nothing more or nothing less. In other words, the moral of the story talks about how an ignorant person does not know anything outside of their world. As of late, I can relate to this…

The 54th Deadline: Off Days

The 54th Deadline: Off Days

Each day, it has become more apparent that some particular elements in my life are out of sync. It is as if I am falling apart from the inside out. Like an internal meltdown from within, I do not feel “right” sometimes. They say you should listen to your body, and my body has been telling me that I am (virtually) destroying myself at this rate. Not to mention, it feels like I am getting more and more “off days”…

The 54th Deadline: Clear Skies in the Mind

The 54th Deadline: Clear Skies in the Mind

This week for me has been pretty clear skies in the mind, which is bad when I want to catch lightning. I just feel so darn unproductive, borderline lazy because I cannot trigger any spark of imagination to utilize. It happens. If humans could be at their best 100 percent of the time, we all would be geniuses. Every single person in the world would be brilliant. But in reality, we all have our respective limits. As a whole, it…

Random Kanji Knowledge: Shinka

Random Kanji Knowledge: Shinka

Well, I finally took the plunge to change up my blog’s theme from the Redoable Lite I ran for more than a year (coincidentally, that was the blog theme my class group had for a blog project back in journalism school, but this is another story). I did not even realize that this blog theme was called “The Journalist v1.9”¬†until I just went ahead with the change. I like this theme’s clean look that is brighter and more open, making…

The Next Chapter

The Next Chapter

Last May, I started this blog. I did not really want to do it, but Rikki kept houndin’ me to blog. I am very thankful that she did. This blog started off as me being slightly embarrassed and reluctant to share my thoughts about my circumstances, though bits and pieces of what I wanted to call “resolve” motivated me to keep writing. Simply put, I was quite messed up in a lot of ways, particularly with how I saw the…
