I was browsing through my instagram feed earlier and saw a post from one popular instagramer about kindness. She said something like ‘be kind to people. The world needs more kind people.’ Continue reading “On Kindness, Positivity and Others”
I woke up yesterday feeling thirsty. I checked my phone and it was 7:30 in the morning already. I missed my alarm or maybe, it didn’t work at all. Maybe it knew I was off so it also took a rest. But that alarm was for me to wake up and drink water before the sun rises, my last drink to help me make it until sunset. Continue reading “Yesterday Was Quite Good”
I’ve been watching several travel blogs lately and to be honest, I’m kinda feeling jealous.
I know I have mentioned several times in this blog that I’m a lazy traveler and would only travel to go to a beach and lie down the whole day and live a fancy life of Eat. Sleep. Beach. Repeat. Continue reading “Bidding May Goodbye”
I’ve been very demotivated at work lately. Everyday, I felt like being trapped inside a torture cage, serving a manager I can never manage to like.
I tried to be nicer to him. I tried to be civil, neutral at least. But still. The stubborn head I have tells me not to follow him. So the more he tells me to do things, the more I don’t want to do it. Continue reading “Holding On”
Last night, we headed to Meedhoo, the neighboring island, to attend our colleague’s wedding.
The boat to Meedhoo leaves at 9pm from our island so by 8:50pm, we were already at the jetty. As we walked to the jetty, I already noticed the sea. It was quite rough and the tide was very high. Continue reading “The Longest 20-minute Boat Ride”
A spider is living on top of my fridge. I noticed its appearance lately.
I don’t know what makes it interesting for that spider to live on top of the fridge as there’s nothing there but a Tupperware, some snacks but still sealed and an unopened bottle of Nutella. So honestly, no good treat for him. Continue reading “The Resident Spider”
I took my stock of tissue paper from our store room, a plastic with 10 rolls in it. As I was walking my way to my room, I saw two guys walking towards me. I thought, what would happen if I smash this plastic of tissue rolls on their heads? Would it hurt? I imagined a scenario where I’m in trouble and I can use the plastic of tissue rolls as self defense. I guess it could save me, buy me time to run away from the suspect. Continue reading “Can Tissue Paper Save the Human Race?”
I write this, feeling a bit sad. I look at the window and see the grey clouds covering the sky. No sunset. Waiting for the rain to pour.
I sit, thinking of what to write. Of how I’m going to recap my April and how I’m going welcome May. I try to remember what happened for the last 30 days. Continue reading “March Winds and April Showers Bring Forth May Flowers”
It was around six in the evening and we were driving along the North Luzon Express Way when a series of Dashboard Confessional played on the radio. The sun was almost setting. The fields were so green; the grains waiting to be harvested gave a golden touch to the greenery. The silhouette of the mountain ranges, dark grey, almost black and the clouds, puffy, painted with different shades of blue, orange, grey and pink. I rolled down the car window and let the warm afternoon breeze touch my face. Continue reading “Lucy and Flappy Bird”
