The 54th Deadline: Facade

The 54th Deadline: Facade

“Life has to continue regardless, but we all must put up a front that things are OK on the surface.” Do you remember those moments when you were a kid in gym class, you get hurt a little bit and needed a timeout before joining your classmates for the rest of the activity? Lately, I have been feeling like I need a breather of sorts, but one that is a bit longer than usual. Emotionally, I feel drained and unmotivated. I…

The 54th Deadline: Swing

The 54th Deadline: Swing

“My life is so swingy at times. I literally go back and forth from feeling good and bad randomly.” Well, I am going back to using the anime pictures again (for the time being). I did not like how plain the last post looked. They are mostly for fun, but having the pictures at least break up the wall of text for each blog post. So they are back for now. Anyway, solving the mystery that is my life gets…

The 54th Deadline: Shortcut

The 54th Deadline: Shortcut

“There comes a point where trying to follow the linear path is not nearly quick enough.” I am a mess. I have grown completely weary of trying to do things the old-fashioned way. What can I say? It has been five years and counting. After a while, it all makes me wonder what I am doing with my life. It sucks because we all should hope for happiness, whatever that may respectively be for all of us. My idea of…

The 54th Deadline: Nurture

The 54th Deadline: Nurture

“When too caught up in life, one tends to neglect that which needs the most nurturing.” I need to take better care of myself, and this is something I can’t continue to ignore that much longer. Part of the reason why my life is so scattered, so unorganized and just sloppy in so many facets… A lot of it stems from my neglectful and counterproductive habits. There are simple things like me needing to clean up around my place. I…

The 54th Deadline: Choices

The 54th Deadline: Choices

“Each day, we all have a series of choices we have to make that dictate how life plays out.” So a few weeks back, I had an episode with a blast from the past. It was like I was dragged back to relive some of the worst feelings I had ever experienced as far as depression symptoms go. I left the reason for it vague at the time, but I feel like sharing a bit as to why I was…

The 54th Deadline: Avoidance

The 54th Deadline: Avoidance

“Perhaps a key lesson I have definitely learned over the years is to step away sometimes.” OK, so let’s assume there is a bonfire right in front of you. If you were to touch it directly, it would burn and hurt you, right? Obviously, the answer is yes. So what would the obvious thing to do if it is burning you? You stop touching it. Again, pretty obvious, right? It is, and yet I am someone who definitely has not…

The 54th Deadline: Similar Sadness

The 54th Deadline: Similar Sadness

“Sadness drains the very sense of joy from you, making life itself feel quite dour.” This whole day, I was reminded of a similar sadness I knew all too well back then. The very depression-riddled, soul-sucking feelings from five years ago returned. In full force, no less. And just like that, I have felt taxed. Physically, mentally and emotionally. But it has only been just a day. I had so many random things planned today. Granted, they were just mostly chores like…
