Note For The Day 20

Advertisements

Life isn’t a race and don’t run when the path is broken. Stop for a while and rebuild the path then go back running at your own pace.

I have seen so many people who are so eager to be successful so fast that they either hurt themselves or hurt others. Never compare yourself to others, we have our own path and some our just lucky enough to get a head start but never let that discourage you nor develop a self-pity. There is no definite timeline of when we should be successful. Ignore those posts you see on social media about “at this age you should have this and that”, just keep grinding towards your goals and focus on your own path. Eventually, everything will turn out fine.

Life Lately 11

Advertisements

Lately I’ve been thinking…

of new things to do as life lately has been repetitive, i want to do something new even though I have so many things that I should do 😅. I’m thinking of what to write about as well as I’ve been a little uninspired these past couple of days.

Lately I’ve been feeling…

a little anxious as I started job hunting again, I decided that this year I will adapt to the “new normal”, I realized that I can’t wait for the pandemic to end and wait for everything to go back to the way it was. This pandemic’s time frame is indefinite and if I wait for it to end before I go look for another job, I’ll probably go insane.

Lately I’ve been wanting…

to travel!!! I miss going places and going on vacation, and also I want to move back into our home. Our house is still currently being renovated and it was supposed to be done last Christmas but there were a lot of changes in design. So, up until now we’re still squeezed into this little apartment. It’s one of the reasons that I’m so lazy to do things.

Lately I’ve been doing…

a lot of playing video games, I feel like my addiction to video games is back. If anyone of you is playing CODM, let’s play! Leave your ID in the comments 😆

Lately I’ve been hoping…

to get a job soon and make my anxiety go away because it really feels like I’m starting over again.


I’ll soon be able to keep up a blogging schedule, just waiting for us to move back into our home. The constant inactivity in this blog is frustrating me lol.

Also, I updated the blog directory please check it out. Discover and follow some new blogs.

How’s your life lately? 😃

Always remember to be kind, not just on others but also on yourself. See you on my next post!

There Is Rape Because There Are Rapists

Another important discussion is being tackled right now especially here in the Philippines as comments as to why women get raped is because of the way they dress or act. Rape is a never ending discussion and right now it’s being brought up because of an alleged “rape-slay” case of a flight attendant, and even though the rape angle is still questionable as the autopsy report said that the cause of death is due to a ruptured aneurysm, most people have quickly come to social media to victim-blame. Let’s set the headline aside, since I partially believe that the 11 men who were with Christine Dacera were innocent in terms of the rape allegations. It has been years and it’s really sad that we still need to debate on the cause of why rape happens.

It’s sad that we still need to explain that women’s clothing or the way they act has nothing to do with being raped. Rape happens because there are rapists. Why is it so hard to explain this? Why do most men think that women dress up for them? Why do most men think that everything women do is for them?

We have been adjusting in this man’s world ever since the world began, we normalized rape culture like it’s always going to be one of the things we’re going to worry about each day. We got used to sexual jokes and we fake laugh to cover up the awkwardness we feel deep inside. We need to be conscious in the way we dress to not be objectified. It’s really sad that it had led to this, it’s been really difficult to change it and erase the rape culture.

We need to end the rape culture. Stop victim blaming! Only rapists-minded would argue about the way women act, if the way girls dress or how they walk or act triggers your perverted minds and you act on it then you have a problem and it’s not the girls’ fault. It’s simple as taking things that aren’t yours as we call it being a kleptomaniac and with forcing girls/people to have sex we call it being a rapist!

I don’t want to make this long because this should have been a short discussion because it’s not that hard to comprehend.

NOT EVERYTHING THAT WOMEN DOES IS AN INVITATION AND CONSENT. KEEP YOUR D*CKS AWAY!

Missing Muse

It’s all painted in white, everything is clear.
Colorful painted walls suddenly disappeared,
along with the calmness of her mind and heart
comes with the emptiness of her vision and art.

Plants bloom after being watered down by rain,
too long under the sun, now she misses the pain.
Grew a garden in this once unkempt landscape,
built up a fence around it, now she wants to escape.

She had the peace of mind that she once craved
but pouring herself in a canvas, she was saved.
It was lost the moment she found her tranquility,
searching for can of paints, instead found anxiety.

It’s Hard To Lose Weight If You Are A Filipino

Losing weight is one of the most set New Year’s Resolution. After all those celebration and holidays, and eating all those food, a lot of people are still on their holiday weight. But for Filipinos losing weight is a lot more difficult not because we’re lazy or unmotivated but for these different factors.

Rice

is the staple food of Filipinos, it’s one of the best source of carbohydrates that makes you gain weight and Filipinos can’t live without rice. For every viand there should be a rice, Filipino meal is not complete without it. That’s why if you’re a restaurant owner who offers unlimited rice, best believed Filipinos will love it.

Eating as bonding

Filipinos love to eat and it’s one of the best way to bond with Filipinos. By having a “food trip” or when you want to hang out and drink with a Filipino best pair it with a “pulutan” (snacks). Filipinos are not picky when it comes to food, we will try anything especially when it’s free lol. From personal experience I think I didn’t meet with my friends to just hang out, we always need to have any type of food with us. Even when you visit a family member you’re ask to eat and sometimes you can’t say no lol.

Celebrations are everywhere

We celebrate everything, and of course we celebrate it with food. We celebrate good grades, one week of a new born baby, every payday, or just by being in a good mood you name it.

Diet is a joke

as much as I want to hype how fun being a Filipino is, there are some toxic Filipino traits that we as a Filipino also hate. When you say that you’re on a diet here in the Philippines, they will look at you skeptically and doesn’t believe you can go through it. It’s one of a toxic trait for some Filipinos, they kind of discourage you for losing weight but when you don’t they’ll say a statement straight to your face that you gain weight (parang tumaba ka).


Overall losing weight is all about the mindset, it’s not really about the nationality. If you want to do something set your mind on it, and do the best you can to achieve it. I’m writing this because this is my New Year’s Resolution right now, to lose weight and be fit again. I have been binge eating every now and then, and this year I will really do my best to achieve this goal.

What is your New Year’s Resolution?
