Four Eyes

How many of you wear prescription glasses? I do. Well, not as often as I should be, but I do have prescription glasses.

I started wearing glasses when I was in elementary school. I was diagnosed to be nearsighted and that I had astigmatism. I loved reading even at an early age, often to the point where my grandmother would have to turn on the light for me while I was reading because I never got up to do it myself when it got dark. I refused to stop reading (nerd alert!) and insisted on reading even if it got dark. I remember my mother blaming my bad eyesight on that bad habit and my grandmother getting mad at me for straining my eyes like that. I don’t know if there is any truth to that, but I can’t blame them for saying it.

September 2021 Playlist: Random

Since I promised a few more playlists on this blog for September, I am now sharing some random songs on my Spotify Liked Songs list. These are songs that people probably have not heard about or songs that people do not expect me to be listening to. I have already excluded similar songs that are in other playlists I have shared in this blog so that they can be completely different from my previous posts.

Are there any songs here that you also like? Leave me a comment and let me know!

I’ve been planning to write this entry for some time now but I wasn’t sure how to say what I want without being cheesy or overly serious. I should probably put in a trigger warning for those who have had or are suffering from depression and the like. OK, you’ve been warned. Carry on.

Recently I have gotten to thinking about life scars. The things that have happened in my life on a physical, mental, and emotional level. Events and experiences that have made their mark in my life and how I have been dealing with them. I’ve realized that through the years, I have changed my outlook on life and how I look back on these scars/trying times in my life compared to before.

According to Charles R. Swindoll, life is “10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.”  I have to agree. The things that happen to us, especially those that we classify as hard times, often happen when we least expect them and we have no choice but to face and deal with them. It is our choice on how to handle it and how to live with the things that have happened to us. 

What are these scars that I am talking about? Here are some of them:

My Writing Projects : Should I Keep Going?

A couple of days ago, BTS member Jungkook celebrated his birthday by going on social media to ask his fans for lines that could be turned into song lyrics, and he later turned it into a song during his live stream. 

It was an interesting idea, and it reminded me of the days when I used to write song lyrics and put melodies to them. No music though since I can't write those down even if my life depended on it. There was a phase in my life where I had a bunch of songs and I even recorded them and gave it as a demo to a certain celebrity (who shall remain unnamed) who had released his own album at the time. Nothing ever happened after that. The only feedback I got was that that certain celebrity wanted to know if it was me singing (yes), that was it. The whole situation was disappointing and I think I have stopped writing songs since then.

At the moment the writing I do is mostly for work. Contracts, corporate information, business letters, proposals...those types of things. On the side, I try to keep my creative side alive by writing this blog and working on the book outlines I have (current book count: 8, a mix of several genres such as romance, action, suspense/thriller & historical drama). It's all still a struggle since I haven't finished a single book, but I do have scenes for them that I just have to stitch together.
