An Effective StopGap

I had time today to sit down and attempt stringing words together but came up with this new short one instead of finishing at least five entries that are 80% complete. My propensity to look back and re-read hinders me from finishing plenty of my blog drafts. I told myself I will finish a few…

Days

There are days when all is good and steady, that despite the inconvenience and substitutions, you make do with what you have, and days end better than it started; it does not hurt as much, it does not make you feel you lost a lot of time and opportunities; it’s good. Then there are days…

Quirk

I once told someone I enjoy my red pasta with black coffee and, yes, I know it’s weird. “No, it’s not weird,” he said. “It’s very weird.” I also like my truffle fries with latte. I am set in my ways to do away with little preferences like this so I pray to find someone…

Back in the Day

Of all the drafts I prepared, written and otherwise, I am publishing this one out of an inspiration from my friend Ida’s tweet earlier today. She was right when she said more people are going back to blogging on a more personal approach nowadays. I remember the times when I wrote anything and everything and…

Brake to Break

I came from one full week of vacation leave from work and it was a good one. Someone even commented at work earlier that I look rested. Partida pa yan, I look like a strawberry 🍓 after my skin tags electrocautery. LOL! I forgot about this week-long leave if not for our amazing admin who…

Attempt

I have been sitting here with initially an intent to update my CV for a work vacancy, then going from one site to another led to hours of not doing what I was supposed to accomplish. Hahaha, hashtag my life. The ideas, mundane and otherwise (let us bank on mundane for the most part), are…

Loyally Yours

It may sound crazy but I feel I am cheating on someone who does not even like me, who does not even know I have feelings for him (I think), when I entertain another person’s attention. This tendency to narrow my vision limits my options and may shut off better possibilities. Still, I cannot help…

Still Distracted

I was home earlier than usual and a tiny part of me was hopeful I could finally publish a post or two in my drafts folder. The coherent ones, you know? But after business-related communications (naks, see, my little online bookshop is making traction plus some Cooperative training opportunities), my fingers found themselves typing Netflix.…

Steady

It’s been a long time since I felt this kind of steady, this kind of calm. I cannot fully say I’m over whatever demons I got because that’s an entire encyclopedia of conversation to dabble in, so I’m enjoying each day as it comes. The desire to go is still there and I think it’s…

No Reading No Care

No Reading No Care. Except not completely. It’s a new high for my reading slump this year. The other difference is that I do not feel as bothered by it. I thought developing an affinity for comic books and graphic novels will offset the lack of novels in my reading progress, but turns out 2017…

Picasso Once More

My mother requested for a city staycation because we lost our power supply last Thursday night and we were told it won’t be fixed soon. As soon as we left for the hotel, my uncle messaged us that the electricity was restored. Ang galing di ba? This kind of sudden gastusan makes me wanna pull…

Say It

When someone doesn’t answer, there’s your answer. — Frank Underwood (@Frank_Underwood) July 22, 2017 Someone shared this tweet of a fictional character over Twitter. So timely. No matter how loud, how “confident”, how put-together someone appears to be, you must not forget that asking someone out still requires a certain amount of courage. It’s a…
