Kindness

Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see. – Mark Twain

if there is one lesson I have learned in life, it is to be kind and have empathy no matter how cruel the world might be. Everyone is struggling and fighting a hard battle we know nothing about. So whenever possible, please be kind and be gentle to one another. We’re all in this fight. You are not alone. #WorldMentalHealthDay

Progress

“Progress is not an illusion, it happens, but it is slow and invariably disappointing.”
— George Orwell

I often forget to remind myself that it is okay to pause for a while and appreciate what I have at the moment. You know, just take it slowly and go on, bringing all the lessons that you have learned from the past. I was too busy planning for the future and too frustrated about my progress, that I missed a lot of opportunities. Resistant, they might say. I am trying to be a realist when it comes to my own understanding what adulthood is all about but being an idealist myself, it’s hard. I mean, it’s not wrong having a strong desire to achieve one thing, especially if you really want it. But life can be tiresome, too. No matter how much you are trying to do it carefully, there are quibblers who will make you feel that you are already waaay left behind. Seeing your ex-classmates having fun with their own lives and with their jobs–buying things from their own sweat and their own money; friends enjoying their “love life”. And voila! Here I am, literally don’t know what the hell am I doing with my life. Confused and lost. Really. I am endeavoring to do things that will make me happy and contented at the same time, but I still couldn’t figure out how to get there. It feels like I cannot make it to the end of the day without questioning myself as to what lies ahead of me. I need to fix my way of thinking. It could be the death of me. Today, I am in the process of finding and exploring what I really want. People might think that I am taking a lot of my time in getting my life together but slow progress is still progress. I believe that each one of us has its own time, where we least expect it.


Sidenote: I was inspired to do this kind of entry after I learned about David Pickett’s way of blogging from Turtles All the Way Down.

Sidenote 2: This blog is written by my idealistic-self compensating with my inadequacy.

The Sunday Currently Vol. 02

Hello! It’s been a while since the last time I wrote a sunday currently. Might as well give it a go again!

CURRENTLY

READING

Turtles All the Way Down by John Green

it is such a nice story. It portays well about the life of a person suffering from Obssesive-Compulsive Disorder. I love how John Green narrates the spiral thoughts of Aza Holmes. I’ve read somewhere that JG also suffers from OCD, might be the reason why Aza’s point of view was beautifully executed. It felt like I am also living inside her; feeling her compulsion and those anxiety-provoking scenes that happened in the novel.

WRITING

a short story for my wattpad account. It’s been a while since the last time I wrote a story and I am kinda missing my watty friends.

LISTENING

to One Ok rock

Thank God I randomly saw them in one of recommended videos. I couldn’t stop listening to their songs. Taka’s voice is definitely a whole next level and it deserves to be heard by many people.

THINKING

about what awaits us in the near future. Happenings nowadays are very alarming; the amazon forest are flaring up, global warming is inevitable, pollution, increasing of crime rate, and so much hatred in the world. Can we be more kinder and gentler? Is it that hard to do?

SMELLING

the air coming from the ac. I find it weird that I like the dusty smell of it.

WISHING

that whatever it is that is happening around us, whether big or small, is something that we can learn from.

HOPING

we could be more of a person. If there is a right time to realize all the damaging actions that we did in the past, that is NOW. I guess it is not yet too late to save what we are losing… Or maybe it is but at least we do our best to save what is needed to be saved.

WEARING

a snoopy pyjamas because I’m about to hit the bed.

LOVING

tedx and podcast. I started listening to Ryan Higa’s podcast, and other youtubers’ since last week. It’s informative and actually quite good.

WANTING

to hang out with my highschool best friends. It’s been a while since the last time we’ve seen each other. I haven’t talked to them since they are so busy with their personal lives lately.

FEELING

a bit grumpy. I was too tired of cleaning my room and organizing my files. I don’t like having a lot of stuff inside my room because it’s too stressful seeing all the excessive things that I literally don’t use anymore and the only solution that I could think of is to get rid of them.

Raise Your Flag

It’s June! That means, it’s already my birth month and of course, PRIDE is also here. I am a proud june baby since our unicorns are celebrating their month of the year. Know that pride march is not just a celebration, it is a march toward freedom and equality. It is resisting together as one community.

As a loud supporter of lgbtq+ community, I am happy with what we are now. People are becoming more and more open when it comes to homosexuality. Hope we get to the day when we can fully embrace and normalize it. There is nothing wrong being one with them. Your orientation and preference doesn’t make you less of a human being. You are still beautifully created and we are equally love by our creator. We should know how to set boundaries and accept the truth because you cannot do anything about it and they will continue until they get there. Know that everyday is Pride day. Advocate love, peace, and equality.
