R E A D I N G - A Map of All The Ways I Have and Have Not Loved Myself by Isa Garcia. I have always been a big fan of Isa’s writing. I have visited her blog a lot of times ever since I discovered a year (or two) ago. I can relate to most of her blog entries on a spiritual and emotional level. It’s like she’s talking to my soul.
This blog entry talks about the constant battle people have with their insecurities and the feeling of not being enough; something I’m very familiar with. And it reminded me that I have always been enough.
W R I T I N G - another entry for The Sunday Currently. Anyway, remember the story I wrote in Wattpad? I thought of cutting it short at first, but I couldn’t find the inspiration and the motivation to continue it anymore. I was full of pain, disappointment, and frustration when I wrote it before. Maybe I’ll find the inspiration and motivation I need to continue it someday.
I might start writing something new again so yeah… I hope you guys take a portion of your time to visit and read it :)
L I S T E N I N G - to Please Don’t Stop The Rain by James Morrison. In my honest opinion, I think James Morrison is pretty underrated. His songs are really good and I can say the same about his voice. His songs are like one of the perfect songs to listen to during a chill day.
T H I N K I N G - about what’s in store for me in the future. To be honest, the future scares me so much. I’m already in my second to the last year in college and a lot of people have been asking me what I want to do after I graduate. My answers change every time because I honestly don’t know what’s going to happen to me after all this.
I’m scared about what my parents would say if I get a job that doesn’t fit my course. I mean, they’ve always wanted me to take up a course that’s more “in demand” like computer science or business administration or nursing. They wanted me to take up a course that (they think) has a surefire job after college. When I told them I wanted to take up Development Communication, all they ever ask me was, “So what exactly are you going to do when you graduate in that course?” Maybe it’s just me but I think they’re not confident that I’d find a job that will put whatever I have learned in my course into good use (and a job that pays well too).
And that thought scares me shitless.
S M E L L I N G - the rose-y scent of the moisturizing lotion I used a while ago
W I S H I N G and H O P I N G - I could touch lives, inspire people to do more and be more, and effect positive change in a certain community.
Let me just share to you guys about the photo walk I joined with my fellow journalism classmates for our photography class yesterday. We were tasked to document the charity program in J.R Borja Memorial Hospital Home for the Aged and Persons with Disabilities. The recent candidates of Miss Cagayan de Oro were the guests of honor. Instead of photographing the fun and excitement outside, some of us went inside the building to photograph more interesting subjects.
Most of the people living there are rescued street children. There are also grandmothers/fathers who were abandoned by their children and/or grandchildren. My heart was already breaking into pieces when I saw the street kids, but it broke even more when I saw the nanays and tatays. Their situation is downright heartbreaking. Not only are they suffering from loneliness, diseases has also struck them.
I want to do something big about it but all I could ever do that time was to photograph them, listen to their stories, and let other people see the pain that I saw through the photographs I took.
W E A R I N G - a pair of PJs, a loose shirt, and my hair tied up in a ponytail; the usual pambahay get-up
L O V I N G - the positive feedback I got from finally creating a Facebook page for The Wandering Dreamer! :)
I’ve been wanting to create a page for this blog a long time ago. I wanted to share some posts from this blog to Facebook without bugging everyone in my friends list. I feel like I’m disturbing a lot of people whenever I share the link to my blog in my personal account. Not a lot of people want to see it in their news feed ya’know. I want to update the people who are really interested with the blog.
To everyone who liked the page, I’m sending you a super tight cyber hug to express my gratitude. I’m thinking of doing my very first giveaway so I hope you guys will join once it’s out :)
W A N T I N G and N E E D I N G- a 35mm f/1.8, a 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6 lens, and a external flash for Voldy (the Nikon D5100 I own). He’s turning a year older this August 5 and I hope I can buy him either of the two lenses or the external flash.
F E E L I N G - anxious about school and work.
So how did your weekend go? Join the blog link-up!
