I Just Want A Simple Life

We all crave for that “better” life whatever that is, and we all have different views of what that is. We all have different things that we want in life. Some want to have that great big house and nice cars, some want to travel the world, some want to find their passion but most importantly all of us want to find happiness. But what is happiness to you?

I was never a materialistic type of person, all I want in life is to live with a peaceful mind and having enough to support myself and my hobbies which is to just write and play video games lol but I never wanted to have a grand life. I don’t want a mansion or nice cars, I’m happy to live in a tiny cozy home. I never crave for too much money, I even daydream of just living in a trailer home and be on the road whenever I want. This is what I picture happiness is, the calmness in life— the contentment.

Life Lately 10

Here’s a life update from my very exciting life lately. And, guess what it’s currently raining again, like a weird coincidence every time I write Life Lately blog posts. Not much has changed since my last ‘Life Lately’ update.

Lately I’ve been thinking…

of ways to start writing about what I think. I have so many thoughts but my problem is either how to start writing it or how to finish writing it. If you could see my notes on my phone, there are a lot of unfinished writings. Sometimes, I have so many ideas that I choose to not write at all.

Lately I’ve been feeling…

alright, but I still get anxious about my future. Especially, now that I’m still unemployed, it’s really hard to get a job because of the pandemic. Lots of companies have laid off employees, and I guess there are a lot of people finding jobs which means, competitions doubled. There’s a part of me that has regrets on voluntarily quitting my job because I currently have no income, but there’s a bigger part of me where I’m relieved that I left that job. Right now, I’m trying so hard not to freak out about it, that’s why my current everyday mantra is “everything will be okay, I’ll be okay” and I tell this to myself every time I feel my chest tightening up because of my thoughts about my current career status.

Lately I’ve been wanting…

to get a job, to write more, to share more, to have a vacation. I want to go back to normal. It’s almost end of the year, and I feel like I wasted time because of this pandemic.

Lately I’ve been doing…

some reading but mostly playing video games. I’m currently reading a book which I would really like to finish by this week. I had a copy of that book for quite a while now, and I’ve been sleeping on it. I would also like to write a review about it, as it’s a really overhyped book but I’ve been playing so much video games lately, which is also the reason I’m so behind with reading your blogs (sorry ✌🏼).

Lately I’ve been hoping…

for the same thing as last time, that this pandemic will be over soon, and better world leaders. For the U.S. citizens, I know election is coming up in your country, please use your right to vote.

How’s your life lately? 😃

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

Just A Thought…

Why do many people rely on what they read online to tell them what their personality is?

This is just a random rambling while I’m listening to Keane’s Everybody’s Changing. I randomly started being skeptic on things again, like I always am. I always have this phase where I question everything, even the things that I’m passionate about. Like, this blog, I often question why people read this stuff written by a frustrated writer which is me. I’m a complicated girl, the thoughts in my brain is a gift because I never ran out of ideas to write about but most of the time I see it as a curse. For instance this ridiculous thought that turned into a blog post.

I suddenly started thinking about personality tests I don’t know why. But I kind of wanted to know why do many people want other people or some tests to tell them what their personality is? I mean, I get how it helps others to find what careers are compatible with them, I also get how it helps people to understand themselves more. I mean I took one back then, and I even posted it here. So, my hypocrite-self is questioning that test now 😂. It was 3 years ago, and I was struggling with finding myself at the time. Okay, enough about defending my hypocrisy 😆. Is it really even reliable? And here I am questioning Myers-Briggs Type Indicator. There are billions of people and we all have different personalities, and these tests are limited. I mean some questions on these tests are like which do you prefer cats or dogs (just for example and context) what if your answer is neither? What if all the questions are something like that? Right? How will that identify your personality?

Like, I said there are a lot of personalities, these tests just put people in boxes. Like, you’re this type of person, and your friend is this type etc. It just confuses people more. Anyways, this thought widened even more, now I started thinking about astrological signs. 😂

Who decided this by the way? Who decided that Virgos are perfectionists that worries too much or how Scorpios are passionate but also stubborn? etc. I used to think how cool it was to identify yourself like these, like you’re one with the cosmic universe. I even almost decided to have my astrological sign as a tattoo. But right now, I’m in my skeptic mode. I’m trollin astrological signs lol just kidding. But you get the point, right? Why do we rely so much on others’ words to tell us how we feel? Or who we are?

Because most of us don’t know how to put it into words and these stuff somehow help us understand what we were feeling in some ways.

See how I answered my own question? This is just a glimpse of what’s really going on in my head. It’s constant debate and fighting with myself 😂. There’s a reason why this blog is called Gigantic Thought Bubble.

Anyway, forgive this randomness. Go check out the Blog Directory, follow those blogs if you haven’t 😊, join in as well if you haven’t yet. See you next post!

Cancel “Cancel Culture” #JustSaying

I want to say some things about this trend called “Cancel Culture”. I don’t know why people nowadays became so entitled to their opinions that they think it’s okay to “cancel” someone just because they dislike or got “offended” by a simple statement of a celebrity or personality that they read in too much.

I’m referring to Tyler Joseph’s tweet that some people got offended. He made a joke about using his platform to talk about important things.

I get how “woke” people are now, especially with everything that has been going on with the world. It’s a crazy world right now, and it’s nice to see how people are socially aware about politics and world issues but forcing someone to speak about these issues is a bit too much, people has ways and process to choose what they believe in. Most people are still trying to figure it out, some people are neutral about stuff. And with Tyler Joseph, his “fans” were forcing him to use his platform to spread a message, he made a joke that I actually find corny lol. But people read in too much to it. Someone said that he mocked his fans with that tweet, when in fact Tyler has a dark and weird sense of humor at times. Check his tweets, it’s full of them. He even makes fun of his fans. Anyways, this guy has been using his platform ever since, with his music he saved thousands of lives (including me). And people don’t really need to post it online as a way to support a cause. And you can’t force someone to speak up, they will if they want to.

It’s funny how “fans” treat celebrities and personalities, like they are owed, and these celebrities should do whatever their fans ask them to do. If you don’t like what people does or say on social media, then stop following them instead of spreading it more, which adds more toxicity to this world. This cancel culture needs to stop, I feel sorry for celebrities sometimes they’re not allowed to make mistakes, that’s why a lot of them don’t really go on social media nowadays. And by the way, what effect does this really do? What does cancelling someone does for you? There’s so many bad things happening in this world, and cancelling someone does not solve it. So, I’m cancelling cancel culture. #JustSaying


What are your thoughts about this “Cancel Culture”?

5 RANDOM FACTS ABOUT ME THAT NO ONE ASKS FOR

I decided Thursdays are for randomness of it all. Ergo, random facts about yours truly. 💁🏻‍♀️

1. I have a total of 5 mini tattoos.

I love tattoos, I don’t care what people say about it. That’s why on my 17th birthday I had my first tattoo and it’s true that when you decided to have a tattoo, you can’t just have one. You’ll kind of come looking for that buzzing sting of the needle after having one. (Should I make a blog post about my 5 tattoos? 🤔)

2. I have one less body organ than everybody else.

That sounded so bad lol but it’s true, I don’t have an appendix anymore. I underwent an appendectomy surgery almost 2 years ago. I actually wrote a blog post about it but I forgot to published it 😅. The pain I felt during that time was unbearable, I thought I was just having a bad menstrual cramps but it went to the point where I could barely stand up. So, we went to the hospital and I got tested. We found out that I had an appendicitis. I went to surgery that lasted 6 hours. And my recovery period was a month and a half, including some messy complications that I had after the surgery, which I won’t fully go into details anymore. Anyways, I don’t know why they say it’s a useless organ but why did God put it in our body?

3. I love sour candies.

I love sour candies to the point where my tongue burns for eating too much of it. I once ate an entire pack of Sour Patch Kids in one sitting, my tongue stung so bad after but I didn’t regret it at all. 😝 P.S. Sour Patch Kids makes me happy. 😄

4. I’m “allergic” to shellfish.

I always say that I am allergic to shellfish but to be honest I don’t really know if I am. There are times where I can eat it normally, but there are times where just the sight and smell of it makes my tongue swell and makes my whole body itchy. That is why I decided to just steer clear of shellfish because I had a very terrible allergic reaction once, where my heart was pounding so fast, and my whole body and even my eyes turned red. My aunt rush me to the doctor, and confirmed that it was allergies which the doctor gave me some pills for it. Since then I barely eat shellfish.

5. I have an irrational fear of dump trucks and concrete mixers.

This just developed a few years ago. No one knows about this fear of mine, except my boyfriend. I seriously tense up and becomes anxious whenever I’m walking past a dump truck or a concrete mixer, or when the car I’m in is beside it. I would cross the street or even take the longer route just to avoid walking past it. I guess, it started when I was walking home and this dump truck drove past me and some gooey stuff landed on my leg and shoes. Since then I kind of got this irrational fear of trucks that could possibly drop something on me. 😅


That’s my 5 random facts! What about you? Do you also have an irrational fear? A food your obsessed with? Any tattoos? Tell me about it, share it in the comments 😄
