Hey there, everyone! How’s it going? I haven’t done this kind of blog post in a while and I thought I’ll do it today. Because why not, right? I honestly don’t know when I can access the Internet again so I’m gonna make this a long post with chunks of different things that are currently happening or has recently happened in my life.
A Personal Battle of Some Sort
As I briefly mentioned before, I’m currently staying in my grandparents’ house. How long I’ll be here, I don’t know yet. It may only be for a couple of weeks or a few more months. I’m going through something as of now but I don’t want to talk about it until I’ve crossed the bridge and am on the other side. Don’t worry, it’s not cancer or anything that grave. I’m not dying, folks. But please pray for me…whether to God or what/whoever else you believe in.
Some people may not believe in God but I realized recently that whether you’re a believer or not, at moments of pure desperation, when you feel hopeless and helpless, you pray. You pray for some divine intervention, luck, to God… Really, I’ve been discovering a lot about praying lately. But I’m not going to muse that much about that. Maybe some other time. 🙂
Conversations with the Chickens
I know I’ve mentioned this briefly in another post too. My aunt takes care of them—they’re not really a poultry nor are they bred to be sold in the markets. They’re just…there, I guess. But I’ve come to realize they’re great company. I talk to them and they’re really great listeners. Although sometimes, they just turn their backs to you and ignore you. But well, I’ve been ignored through far worse ways.
See, the great thing about chickens is that, unlike dogs or picky-eater cats, they’re omnivores. They usually eat grains or chicken feeds but I feed them bits of bananas or bread and they eat it. I never knew chicken-feeding was therapeutic. Once, I fed them a slice of hotdog and they ate it but I was too afraid they’ll get food-poisoned so I never tried it again. Just think: chicken ghosts to haunt you… *shudders*
Imagination Running Wild
Here’s the thing about boredom. Best-case scenario: you do something productive. Worst-case scenario: you dream of president-kings going to you to protect them from scary vampire-governors. Note: I actually thought of this while half-awake.
So to keep those wild imaginations at bay, I write them on paper or on my phone. I have, like, three unfinished stories on my laptop right now. One of which I plan on putting on my writing blog. There’s also some incomprehensible poetry scribbled hurriedly in one of my old notebooks. I don’t know what to do with them. HALP.
PROJECTS, PROJECTS, PROJECTS
This is, of course, a need that resulted from complete boredom: I NEED PROJECTS. Of course, writing that one series I mentioned above is one thing but I also really need projects that will make use of my visual and creative (Ha.) mind. So far, I thought of making fairy lights because I only need a mason jar and some glow-in-the-dark paint. I’ve also thought of this no-bake dessert (because as some of you may know, I suck at cooking). But other than that, I don’t know what else to do.
This is where I need help from you guys, especially if you’re into reading awesome novels. I’m running out of books to read. And that’s a shock because I’ve been a snail at reading non-academic books for the last…oh, I don’t know century? The thing is, I’m inhaling every unread book in my e-Reader like vacuum to dusts. All the books stored here in my gramp’s place are books I’ve all read repetitively in high school.
And you know I’m already desperate to dive into another literary world because I’m done rereading all my childhood favorites already: Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, A Series of Unfortunate Events…*sigh* So please. Have mercy to this young bored-to-death soul and recommend some good novels.
I’m not picky. Throw any book you know at me. YA, NA, Adult Fiction, Contemporary, Historical, Sci-Fi, High Fantasy… But I personally like adventures. Of course, if you want me to cry, you can also recommend tear-jerkers.
So yeah. That’s all about me for now. I’ll see you guys soon! (when I can get a stable Internet connection)
Happy morning/noon/afternoon/evening, everyone! 🙂
P.S. Oh yeah, I cut my hair! Not that it matters that much, I know. I’m currently in that New Hair Phase where you always stop by to check your reflection and be like, “Ohmygosh, it doesn’t look like me!”
