#WorldMentalHealthDay was just around the corner and I’m just about to write my entry on it today. On October 10, I witnessed a lot of my online friends posting about #WorldMentalHealthDay. I honestly didn’t know such a day exists, but I’m glad it does. I saw close acquaintances and strangers tweet their thoughts, share their own experiences and recovering tips, post their stories on Facebook, and basically celebrate the day.
Weeks ago, I went to the gym again after a really long time. As I was working out, I realized some things. I just want to share them with you. I hope you get some bits of wisdom here, too. It’s a bit lengthy so maybe grab a cup of coffee or something while you’re at it.
It’s already the middle of September and I’m still in denial. I looked at my bullet journal this morning and saw “11” staring back at me. I was kind of taken a back. I was surprised. 11? As in it’s already September 11? I couldn’t believe it. 2 weeks left until October, then November’s gonna roll in. Then it’s Christmas time, then a new year all over again. I know I complain about the days being long, but I didn’t see this year rolling in this fast.
Hey, guys! So it’s already July. I know, right? Where have the days gone by? Where did the months go? Even I don’t know how to answer that question, but I know a lot has happened. As they say, the year is short but the days are long. I know I’ve been excelling in my creative pursuits, with personal growth, I’m not so sure. So I made the effort of writing down my accomplishments for the previous month. And here are the things I realized:
Have you ever been in this situation where you stare at your laptop screen all day but no words come out? You want to blog but your mind just won’t function, your fingers won’t function. In other words, you feel that this is just going to be an uneventful day where you attempt to blog but fail. Sounds familiar? You want to blog so badly, but can’t. And you’re almost going crazy from trying to figure out why. Honestly, I have the complete opposite problem. I have too many ideas, but out of practical reasons, I can’t write 3 blog […]
Two Thursdays ago (May 25, 2017), I attended Self-Love Club’s first ever meeting. I wasn’t really supposed to go but I ended up going because it wouldn’t do any harm, right? Albeit the hesitation and the mild confusion, I gave myself the chance to learn more about this so-called “Self-Love Club”. Besides, Danah and Stacy were leading the club, so I was sure a fruitful night was waiting for me. I was also just inside the house the entire week so I thought it would be a good chance to go out and have some real girl bonding while […]
Disclaimer: I couldn’t concentrate on work. I’m not sure if it’s a sepanx from Jec and I’s recent trip or the fact that I have my period. Either way, I’m feeling out of funk so I decided to take a breather and write a random blog post. Yesterday, I got home from a weekend trip with Jec and his co-workers. He invited me to go with them since they were allowed to bring partners with them. It was supposed to be a team building of some sort, but it turned out to be an ordinary office outing and it was […]
January 1, 2017 | Sunday Earlier today, we went to my aunt’s house to celebrate New Year. As per usual, we had potluck food, some cooked at home, some delivered, played games, and exchanged stories. Also as per usual, we had fun. But I’m not here to tell you about that. I’m here to vent out on my frustrations on why my cousin is being bullied in her current school.
