So, I'm late on the new year's wishes and felicitations. That's OK, right? I travelled back to my hometown of Gotemba for the occasion. Arriving at night, the town was as quiet as ever. But I could see that the old royal residence wasn't immune to the tides of time. The Subway I had eaten… Continue reading Back Home and My Fortune (New Year’s 2021)
The dishes from Christmas dinner need to be put away. I keep staring out of the curtained window, like I'm waiting for something to happen. What is it artists use to record their videos? Do I even want to push my art into the world and jump on that bandwagon? A composition I threw together… Continue reading Hey! What’ve you been up to?!
I shunned the idea and thought, "Pfft, why do I need to go find people? They should come to me!" I mean, that's what my family was always going on about whenever I'd have a falling out with love. Shouldn't it work the same way with friends? God, what a pompous noodle butt I was... am?
It's becoming more and more evident that, despite living out in the countryside, the virus will spread as long as people keep moving around, unaware they're contaminated. And would you believe I STILL see people not wearing a mask?
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… Continue reading I want you, but I don’t need you: Personal thoughts on self-validation.
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… Continue reading You snooze, you lose, Slow News.
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… Continue reading Self-isowhat?
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,… Continue reading Myers-Briggs and I
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… Continue reading A Weekend Diary: Dilly-dallying Depression and Fried Food
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… Continue reading Cold, Cold, Aa-choo!
