How Do I Blog Again?

OK. Let’s see if I can remember how this goes…

I cracked my knuckles before my fingers hovered above the home keys on the keyboard.

I know I haven’t been posting in a while, and in order for me to break the habit of not posting in the blog, I have to kick start the process by simply diving in.

An Amusing Turn of Stats Event

I know this is nothing to be completely happy about – it just means that my blog – which has usually been flying under the radar, must have caught the eyes of a bunch of spambots.

Since I have no new comments in my notifications, I guess I should be thankful that the Spam filter is working as it should be.

But still, it’s funny, and I got a good chuckle out of it. Look at how my blog has performed for the past few days — then suddenly, BOOM!

This reminded me of that post Jim Borden made on his blog,  The Day My WordPress Stats Went Wild. It’s amusing to see such performance out of our blog, eh? Outstanding!

Anyway, my suspicions were mostly confirmed when I saw where most of the views were from. Hahaha…

Well, anyway, that’s all for now. I hope you are having a good day today. Stay safe!

Just Checking In. Some Quarantine Stories

Hello everyone! How are you doing in these trying times? I hope you are still sane and able to keep yourselves safe – you know, while staying at home and always washing your hands…

There has been nothing much going on by my end of the world. Buying supplies has been difficult and exhausting – mainly because you have to buy in larger quantities, and often, the things you need to buy are not available due to problems in the supply chain. At least it was not as apocalyptic as I had initially thought. I mean, the canned goods are still untouched, and I am still able to procure some fresh produce.

On Community Lockdown

Hello everyone. How are you all doing?

To control the pandemic, our government declared a community lockdown. Cool. I can stay at home, yeah?

For an introvert that can spend hours at home, indoors, that is not a bad news. However, I still have to go to work this week, mainly because I am in the government sector, and my work deals with necessary documents and paper work. The good news is that I am not on the front lines, and that there is no documented infection in our city. The community lock-down is more of a preventive measure to curb the spread.

Fiddling Around With Photography

With my wife diving into her vlog production more recently because we have more free time, I have rekindled my love for photography.

Armed with my Fujifilm Superzoom, which I had with me since 2014 (yeah, it’s old), and my iPhone, I have been taking photos whenever I can.

Sweating Bullets

My phone might be really close to dying out on me.

However, it is an old phone. An Iphone 6s which was handed down to me from my wife. It also had its screen replaced when it took a dive off a high table and smashed its face up.

My Life is a Mess Right Now

Have you ever looked at the direction your life is in, and see what a big pile of stinking feces it is going? If not, I must applaud your life. Mine seems to be in a bit of a rut.

However, if yours seem to be in a terrible place at the moment, as well… Remember that what you are experiencing now, is just that – it is for now.

The mess that  you are in will only be up to a certain point. The troubles and hardships will pass.

How can you live life if everything seems to be so difficult? By doing the same thing that athletes, musicians, artists, or anyone with a high enough skill level manage to do anything that seems to difficult – by doing it everyday. Sooner or later, it will become easier, but only if you do it everyday.

Living is hard, yes? Then do it everyday. It will get easier.

I hope you have a nice day.

Thank you for reading.

I Don’t Feel Like Writing

I don’t feel like writing today,
Words don’t seem to come my way,
The cursor keeps blinking away,
Nothing from my brain, hurray!

I mumble, and I grumble,
My fingers all a fumble,
This state I’m in, laughable,
On this block, I fall, stumble.

I guess I won’t be writing,
I’ll lounge around, reading,
Or catch up to some watching,
I am done with the typing.

Don’t Trust Your Memory

I knew that our memory is fallible. I read articles in the past, similar to this one (“Why does the human brain create false memories?“), that our brain fills in the blanks on things that it thinks to be the most possible.

The other day, I was busy looking for a shelving , which from what we recall consists of three layers, in increasing sizes. It was installed in our living room before we had it remodeled.  I looked everywhere for the longest one. I looked under beds, inside closets, even had the nagging feeling that we might have thrown or given it away. My wife believes that we had them stored.

Did we really have a third shelf? Continue reading “Don’t Trust Your Memory”
