As I’m about to mark my 23rd birthday on the calendar, I can’t help but reminisce on old events and old people in my life. To be fair, I also can’t help but be thankful of the people I recently met just before I hit 23.

I still have a lot of hangups and I figured that one way to lessen them is to write about them and write open letters to the people I owe. This will be a split of thanking and apologising to people. I owe people a lot of words but it’s still impossible for me to speak to some of the individual people personally so what’s a better way than utilise my blog for it, right?

I am turning 23 in a few days and I feel miserable about it.

I am having a jumble of thoughts right now and I will try my best to write down everything I could. Because it seems like every time I start writing, my thoughts get whiffed by some non-existent gust of wind. Thoughts like these I want to write down but I’m afraid of doing so for fear of being judged or being misunderstood. Try as I may keep calm, there simply are days that I just want to wallow in self-pity and cry for an entire day until my eyes exhaust and close as I fall asleep. Mind you, it’s been a while since such thing has happened.

I am turning 23 in a few days and it just hit me in the face like a brick.

Look at me planning what I want to eat and how I want to spend my birthday when unbeknownst to me, I’d feel like a worthless piece of shit a few days prior D-Day.

Blissful. It’s how I feel right now.

I am blissful because I had a really good day today. I wasn’t expecting it and I wasn’t planning it but it happened and for that, I’m grateful. I do not write weekly or daily updates of my life now. Way back when I was still on Tumblr, I was fond of writing daily entries just to share what happened to my day regardless if it’s mundane or festive. Now as a part of rebranding my blog, I’ve come to realise that I need to be more specific with my blog and I have to somehow get rid of my spontaneity. Until now I try to carefully plan my blog posts, but not tonight.

Wow, this is unbelievable. Had I not blogged Life Lately last night, I wouldn’t have had anything in between my TSC series. This is ridiculous. I’m not sure what I’m waiting for – I better dust off my drafts and work on my blog posts. But because I have a lot of feelings tonight, let’s rush into this TSC Vol. 11 before my laptop dies on me.

There are too many things that are bugging me lately so I thought that maybe it’s the right time to do another Life Lately volume. Earlier this evening, I tricked myself into believing again that maybe I could go out and hang out somewhere to try and brush up my socialising skills. But that plan vanished into thin air when I realised that my calves are killing me from my workout yesterday and the fact that I was still working won’t speed up the process, seeing that I keep distracting myself with EDM and party anthems.

Of all the relationship-related blog posts I’d have to write, this could be the most emotionally exhausting because I know I have to dig deep into my bag of emotions again and relive what I could for the sake of having you relate to my story.

I told myself I will make it a goal to write a substantial blog post before this week ends. I’m beginning to long for quality again and I want to ditch my random and spontaneous self, for now, to offer you something else.. deeper. I even consulted a good friend and she assured me that this would make a good content because a lot of readers would surely relate to this. Even if you’re not fresh off of a relationship like I am, we’ve had our fair share of heartbreaks and breakups, whether the relationship was official or not. I also believe men would also benefit from this, maybe they just handle breakups in a quieter manner. But we’re all human – we are all hurting inside one way or another.

Once again and for the last time, let’s embrace the pain and put on the table what we’ve learned from our past relationships and help each other mend our hearts. Here’s my story.

I’m ready when you are.

(Otherwise, feel free to bookmark this blog post and read it later. I want your full attention and perhaps a good 20 minutes for me to share my piece on this topic. You know me, I love writing, sometimes a little bit too much. But nothing is ever a waste, especially on this one.)
