My rage is simmering in me, I’m holding a grudge, really, because I was punished over something I did not do, but rather punished over the feeling of jealousy I have caused.Continue reading “Unjustly Punished”
Hi, how are you doing? Good, I hope.
Two weeks ago, I had my first tooth extraction with a dentist. It was an interesting experience. Scary? Yes. But it was over sooner than I expected.Continue reading “First Tooth Extraction”
When the last quarter of the year rolls in, I usually am busy with a couple of creative challenges… there’s Inktober for October, and NANOWRIMO for November.
This year, however, I haven’t done anything for inktober. I’ve been busy, and frankly, I don’t feel very creative. I don’t even have a spot to draw quietly.
When we had a store, I was sometimes left alone and while every once in a while someone would stop me from working, at least I was sitting alone and was able to work on my scribbles.
I thought that with more free time, I would be able to work on my art. Unfortunately, that did not happen. I ended up not having any time to myself, and I don’t even have a place to draw.
I’m not even feeling optimistic for NANOWRIMO. Not only do I not have an idea on what to write, but I really don’t feel like writing anything. I don’t feel safe writing anything.
I hope you guys are doing well.
I don’t know how to start this so I’m just going to go ahead…
Since I have no one to talk to this about, I’m going to rant in here.
It has been 4 years since the major interior works our house was completed. The endeavor put me in deep debt and also cut our spending money really hard. We were slowly recovering from it, and as of now, some of my debts have been reduced.Continue reading “Back to Square One”
I’m not saying it’s a bad thing, either.
Last weekend had been a somewhat productive day. I was able to get out and get some street and outdoor photography done. I will upload them in instagram soon.
We also managed to record content in advance for the wife’s channel, which is good. As the producer, it can be very stressful when production schedules are not being met, and deadlines with no output pass you by.
Last week was different. I was swamped.Continue reading “Being Productive Is Tiring”
Wow… Where’d the year go, eh?
September, tells me that the year is close to ending, and that my annual creative challenges are approaching. In October, I have the Inktober challenge, and for November, NANOWRIMO.
I am not really ready for both.
I haven’t sketched or inked anything since the last Inktober which I failed marvelously. I mean, hey, daily ink drawings are tough, you know! Well, last year, I did not really had a lot of time, and I had to squeeze drawings between life obligations. Now, I have more time, I just have to have the right discipline.
As for NANOWRIMO, I have learned that when writing stories, it is very important to have characters ready. I mean, stories are events that are happening to characters, right? So, if I have characters with traits and appearances ready, I might have a shot. As for settings and things, I’m thinking of re-purposing my attempt for last year, and see if I can fix up a better draft than I did last year. Last year, I saw myself writing a story that did not seem exciting. It was a story, just not a good enough story. I wrote it up until I found myself stuck in a deep hole and could not find a plot device to pull myself out of the crap that I put myself in. I really need to be a better story writer, you know? Well, short stories, I can do – but it is a whole new ballgame when we are dealing with long form writing such as novels.
Thanks to the global pandemic, I can’t believe that the year is so close to ending. Frankly, if this is what 2020 has, I hope that our timeline starts to get better by 2021.
For the Philippines, September also marks the start of Christmas. Well, not really the start of real celebrations, but it’s when you’d start hearing Christmas songs off the radio and from the mall’s sound system. People will not look at you funny if you even hang your decors this early. But if you do, what will you do with your Halloween decors, eh?
How are you all doing? I hope you are all doing well.
See you around, and have a nice day!
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.
I got baited to a scam, and fed them my credit card details.
Everything happened so fast, I’m happy that I somehow began digging as soon as I hit the “Process Order” Button. However, it might be too late.
In my previous post – I mentioned how our City was in the path of an incoming typhoon, right?
Well, fortunate for us, the path went a lower course and missed us. The most we experienced was some heavy rains around five, up to seven in the morning.
The day before, which was Thursday, we got ample time to prepare and anticipate for the typhoon. We moved the potted plants we had at the balcony indoors, covered up the washing machine, and I had to do an inspection of the roof above the kitchen.
Hello everyone. How are you all doing in these trying times?
Things are slowly settling here in the Philippines. It would seem that by next week, strict quarantine controls will only be limited to a select few areas. Our city will probably go back to normal next week – well, at least the so called “new normal,” at the very least.
