There are days when I feel like NOT doing anything at all. We all have those moments, I assume. I'd like to think unless you NEED to, don't work if you're tired. Get some rest, right? But I also understand that we don't have the luxury of doing that every time. If we did, we … Continue reading Being Productive When You Don’t Feel Like It
Taking Breaks, but Not Staying in the Break
[If you're planning to play the game A Short Hike, there are spoilers ahead, so tread carefully.] [If you're NOT playing the game or if you don't play video games in general, tread carelessly (?)] I've developed a problem with online gaming recently. Playing with my buddies was merely "taking a break" a month ago but … Continue reading Taking Breaks, but Not Staying in the Break
I Timed My Activities for Half a Month: Here’s What Happened
Back when I was still working for my previous employer, one of the things I hated the most was "the system" that counts the literal seconds for everything that I'm doing. I think I mentioned this before (and I don't want to reread old posts), but we were only allowed a total of 8 minutes … Continue reading I Timed My Activities for Half a Month: Here’s What Happened
Stopping and Quitting
Whenever I browse on YouTube, I've noticed myself adding many videos on my "Watch Later" playlist. However, there are certain videos here and there that I can never seem to watch (even on that playlist) because I don't feel like watching them at the moment (like a video about discipline when I'm procrastinating), or I plan to … Continue reading Stopping and Quitting
Another week, another speedrun. For those of you who don't know what a speedrun is, it's when people try to finish a game in the fastest possible time. Imagine beating Pokémon Yellow in just under 2 minutes. Yup, it can be that insane. You won't believe how intense certain sections of the gaming community are when it … Continue reading Inconsistency
Forcing Myself to Clean My Own Room
Today (this was written on a Saturday), I had a lot of things to do. I had to do my regular stuff like eating (and breathing), listen to a few classes I missed yesterday, lift some weights (I don't have strong arms), write for the day (this post), fold some clothes, take care of a … Continue reading Forcing Myself to Clean My Own Room
Yesterday, the Power Ran Out.
At around 8 PM, I was already feeling sleepy. It's not like I didn't have enough sleep for the past few days, but maybe it's just because I didn't have anything else to do, and it was time to move on to the next day. Maybe that's why our grandparents sleep early. But I'm not … Continue reading Yesterday, the Power Ran Out.
I find this idea a little cringeworthy, but I'm speedrunning this writing session today. I wasn't feeling very good one night (this might be two weeks ago if you're reading this at the time of posting). It felt like I had the flu, but it was just at the gates waiting for the guard to … Continue reading Sick
I NEVER Forget Anything Anymore Because of This ONE Trick!!!
I hope the sarcasm got you clicking. (Also, regarding the photo - faucet water in the Philippines is a no-go.) For me to be able to sleep earlier, I've been trying to replace my nightly gaming escapades into reading sessions instead (don't worry, I moved the gaming into the 3 PM to 6 PM-ish slots). … Continue reading I NEVER Forget Anything Anymore Because of This ONE Trick!!!
I Was a Piece of Garbage for a Week. Here’s What Happened.
From being a self-proclaimed productive person, I became an unmotivated and lazy pile of dirt. I was tired, even if I wasn't doing anything. After being immobile for a week because of the flu, I had to return to the reality of unemployment. Before I got sick, I submitted my resignation email. I'll talk more … Continue reading I Was a Piece of Garbage for a Week. Here’s What Happened.
