I want you, but I don’t need you: Personal thoughts on self-validation.

Social distancing has got me in the throes of passion. Passionate reflection, that is. Today's topic is self-validation. I might have touched on it here, but it's bothering me, so I'm going to yammer on about it again. The Backstory I have a love-hate relationship with social media. I've had a MySpace, a DeviantArt, a Gaia …

You snooze, you lose, Slow News.

Inspired by one of the fellows I follow here on WordPress, I thought I would type out a quick update on my life. Slow, indeed! My days seem to pass as thickly as molasses. There is no pressure to complete work and projects. I didn't mention in my last post, but school is to be …

Self-isowhat?

Never would I have thought that I’d be stocking up on non-perishables and learning how to make a mask. Sure, the folks who have believed the zombie apocalypse would be coming all along have been prepared for ages, but what about the rest of us who can’t even grasp the idea? Part of me is …

Myers-Briggs and I

Let’s talk Myers-Briggs. Just about everyone and their mom should know what this is or has had heard of it at some point. It’s basically a psychological test that puts an individual into a personality type based on the level of disagreement or agreement they have towards choice statements (i.e. After a hard work week, …

Sweet Dreams are Made of These

It’s weird how dreams stick with you. It’s even weirder how your subconscious blends in with the real stuff and leaves you feeling things; confusion especially. I also really wanna go find the bird that I found in my sleep. That was freaky time slip disco right there. What did I dream about, you’re probably …

Give me corona, or give me soap!

"Give me liberty or give me death" certainly wasn't how I thought I'd start this out, but it came to mind anyway. I suppose it fits the current situation nonetheless. Everyone is aware that the coronavirus is wreaking mayhem across the globe. It's seeping into our already weakened economic sectors, scaring politicians into denial, and …

A Weekend Diary: Dilly-dallying Depression and Fried Food

This weekend was interesting in that I tasted the rainbow when it came to emotions... and I didn't even have to eat any Skittles! Usually, I'm preparing and giving an English lesson on Saturdays except that this time, my student e-mailed me to explain that her daughter was placed in in-home quarantine. If you're thinking …

Cold, Cold, Aa-choo!

We've all been there. I was there earlier this month. Whenever sudden symptoms crop up, we rush to the internet and research them. 99.9% of the time, it tells us we have some rare form of cancer when in actuality, it's a cold. Next, we look up "easy ways to get over a cold" or …

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year, everyone! ...OK, so it's not the first day of the year, but cut me some slack here. This blog has been quiet for some 6+ months. You should be patting me on the back for getting some kind of energy up enough to even post something. Snarkiness aside, I have a question for you. Did …

A Weekend Diary: Summer Break (Part 2)

Being alone with my thoughts during this extensive summer vacation, of which ends in one more day (hooray!), has led me to wonder if I’m doing the right things in life. I suppose those are the kind of philosophical mysteries that I’ll never know the answers to. Even historians debate about the correctness of events …
