It’s still Sunday in some parts of the world.
I created this blog July of this year because of quarantine. My main purpose is to follow Filipino personal blogs because I’m a Filipino who is currently lost in life. It feels comforting to read from people who also feel the same or have overcome the uncertainty that one feels in her 20s. I’ve been lurking here for two years now. I keep on deleting my blogs because I couldn’t decide what to write here before. This blog is five months old and gained 25 followers. Some people I followed followed me back too. I don’t want to creep them out so, I write in this blog sometimes hehe.
This post is a sign of life. A proof that I’m not a robot hehe, just a reader who enjoys anonymity.
Also, today is the last Sunday of 2020 so yep.
The Quiet Ones by Glenn Diaz
I thought it would take me months to read this book because I don’t usually buy newly discovered books right away. But when I sneaked a quick stroll to Fully Booked after nine months, I found this arranged suspiciously on a shelf. I noticed that the color of the spine blended well with the books around it and if I didn’t read the titles of the books from top to bottom (this book was at the bottom), I wouldn’t see it. Some people are mean like this haha so, I bought the last thick (with bigger letters and ample spacing) copy and read the book this week. I will write a separate post about this soon 🙂
Few hours before I typed this post, I was writing corrections on the margin of my printed class record. We just finished first semester this month and I’m almost done with clearance requirements. Yey!
I always complain about my neighbor’s radio so I counter it with YouTube. I listen to a lot of videos this week, mostly from commentary and educational channels.
I’m intimidated with shows like this so, it’s pleasantly surprising that I enjoy this show a lot. I like it so far. I like the analysis and the humor. I’m not interested with the characters’ personal lives. I feel like they are fillers. They take away the momentum of the action. I’m on Season 2 and I feel the drag already but I’ll watch all of it because my cousin likes this show too.
Digital Minimalism is not new but I like Cal Newport’s take on regulating our digital life. I started withdrawing from social media last year. I’m still thinking on how to manage my screen time. This is my nemesis. I spend a lot of my time staring at screens.
Nothing in particular. I guess I’m used to the old scent of this house.
For my vision to be clear again 😥 It keeps getting worse especially during this pandemic. Most interactions from students, colleagues, family, friends, and strangers happen online.
I hope for this pandemic to be over. I miss going out and seeing my friends.
A gray shirt and black pajamas. I love the rainy days here. It’s just the right amount of rainfall to keep people inside their homes and muffle the not-so-distant noise from the neighbors.
I love my dotted notebook. I’m trying to do bullet journaling this time and I’m taking it easy. I’m hunting for 2021 planners since September but the shops have not replenished their stocks yet and the planners available are not my type. So, I choose to design my own planner. I’m loving it so far ❤️
I want to buy a Nokia feature phone, either a Nokia 3310 or Nokia 2720. I want to downgrade after knowing all the outrageous upgrades of phones this year. I mean it’s good but I can’t keep up anymore, not that I try. My Huawei Y6 2018 phone is still okay for me. I can still access Google in it.
A solid schedule for my screen time. This requires work and discipline. I need to plan this thoroughly.
I’m feeling hopeful that I can develop better habits for the next semester.
I’m still looking for personal blogs to follow. If you can recommend Filipino bloggers who are also teachers, the better 🙂
Thank you for sharing your thoughts and feelings here. I enjoy reading them. Thank you for following this blog too. I hope you have a meaningful day of reflection before 2021 starts. Let’s all hope for better days ahead 🙂
